In 1993, the world of hip-hop was invaded by a group of killer bees, better known as The Wu-Tang Clan. Listeners were stung by infectious beats and overwhelmed by the rap group as they took over the industry in their pursuit of the perfect honey-coated lyric. At the head of that swarm was Robert Diggs, aka The RZA, the producer pioneer who has now crossed over to the film industry as well. His directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fist, stars Russell Crowe and is set to come out in 2011.
The first annual Fantastic Arcade is now over but Fantastic Fest rages on! To send the Arcade out in proper style, we held a video game trivia challenge a-la the classic 80’s game show Starcade that was full of obscure factoids, joysticks skills, and plenty of beer. After 3 rounds of head-to-head arcade action- a victor was crowned, who walked away with a cash prize as well as his very own vintage stand up arcade machine!
