Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! It's been a relatively quiet week on the site, but I've got a couple things cooking behind the scenes including some comic book reviews.
I just discovered today that Masters of the Universe and other '80s cult classic films are on the Paramont Vault YouTube channel! I've idenitfied several that will be on my upcoming watch list. The 30th anniversary of Cocoon is this weekend and I decided to breakdown the music video for the soundtrack song "Gravity" by Michael Sembello earlier this week. It's a crazy video that I had not remembered watching so it was fun trying to make sense of it. The next Smurf movie Get Smurfy was also in the headlines this week with Sony Pictures announcing some new voice actors for the animated film.
The video of the week in my eyes was watching Seth McFarlane sing a couple classic Cyndi Lauper tracks as Stewie and Peter Griffin from Family Guy. I've never been a huge fan of the show and have only watched a handful of episodes but the fact that his performance was along side Lauper made it very funny.
