Kelly listens to more Alice Cooper and shows us Alice in France while Mel pretends to be a doctor in Theme Hospital and hunts a very elusive Raptr.
Music: Special Forces by ALICE COOPER
- Special Forces is a 1981 album by the one and only Alice Cooper that’s the middle one of the three “Blackout Albums” that Alice does not actually remember recording in the early 80s.
- The album photos and tour featured the biggest departure from Alice’s “traditional” make-up… and even Kelly admits it is “not his best look”.
- If Alice was ever in charge of his own branch of the military, it would look and sound like “Special Forces”. So there is that.
Video: Special Forces in Paris!
- Alice and the band did a series of Special Forces music videos on French TV!
- In addition to most of the Special Forces songs, the show featured past hits like “Under My Wheels”…
Game: Theme Hospital by Bullfrog Productions/ Electronic Arts
- a 1999 Hospital Management Sim game that is full of fun diseases like Bloaty Head, The Squits, Slack Tongue, and Heaped Piles.
- It’s available over at GOG.com and due to their awesomeness, it will now play on your Windows 8 computer!
- Sadly, the GOG version will not give you play credit on Raptr, but it’s still worth it.
Game Service: Raptr
- A gaming community/service that tracks not only your games, but the time you spend playing them!
- You actually earn points for the time you spend playing PC, Xbox, Playstaion, or Wii games.
- Join up and join the hunt for this adorable little guy, the elusive Raptr Dino Plushie!
