T Break

August 7, 2014
Smokin'! Uh, literally...

Smokin’! Uh, literally…

Check out my all-new Nix Comics‘ t-shirt that I got in the mail! I love this one. Great design and there’s something kinda Troma-esque ’bout the color, don’t you think? Goes great with coffee and a morning smoke.

Now, these were a limited edition kinda deal, so I’m not sure when these will be re-printed. But head on over to the official website, show ‘em some love by ordering yourself some copies and if enough people tell Ken that they want one I’m positive he’ll print up some more!

Mail Call

June 18, 2014

HoM

Just a quickie note as I am keeping quite busy finalizing the Videogram mix/album for Doc Terror‘s coming Italian Horror Week: Last week I received my House of Monsters Kickstarter backer goodies in the mail; t-shirt, an original piece of artwork and key that enables free downloads of all the coming episodes. Neat stuff and I am loving the t-shirt!

A nice throwback to the Rankin/Bass Mad Monster Party stop motion animations of the 1960s, this project looks great and I am happy to be on board. Make sure you check out their official page on Facebook here, the official website can be found here and you can read my interview with creator Dawn Brown here.

“So, How’d You Spend Your Lunch Break?”

April 8, 2014

skeletor

I figured I’d share this: Been going through quite a nostalgic phase recently and roughly one month ago I decided I’d get myself a Skeletor tattoo. He was my fave character in Masters of the Universe and the first Mattel action figure I got – if memory serves me correct it was a X-Mas gift. What can I say? I was a pretty big fan of Darth Vader as well!

Anyway. This is roughly 2.75″ and took about 50 minutes from start to finish – giving me enough time to have a quick cup of coffee and a smoke afterwards. The image itself is actually based on Damaged GoodsMyaah! art print available via Society 6 in a variety of formats. Check it out here and does anyone remember the 1987 movie starring Dolph Lundgren?

“Either that or its counterpart…”

"...and somebody's responsible!"

“…and somebody’s responsible!”

Can your heart stand the shocking facts about grave-robbers from outer space? Well, if you promise they’ll be narrated by Criswell I sure can, baby! Check out my all-new Plan 9 From Outer Space t-shirt that I got via Lunchmeat Magazine! ‘Tis gorgeous and I’ll probably wear it out in no time (like I always do with my faves!)

This baby set my back a measly five dollars (plus postage), so if you’re a fan of Ed Wood and wanna support some indy media that focuses on all things VHS I suggest you check ‘em out on Storenvy here, their official site at www.lunchmeatvhs.com and on Facebook here.

While on the subject of the 1959 cult classic (that’s actually in the public domain so you can get it via Archive.org for free!):

Yowsa! Just received a heads up the latest issue of Rue Morgue has hit the streets and in it there’s a great review of Call Me Greenhorn‘s Cutthroats at Midnight EP to be found. Summing it up as “…Sleek, slick bounce and dark vibes”, I’m thrilled to see this lil’ puppy received four stars.

Gah! Well, this would probably be right up Eva Halloween‘s alley: Check out Joshua Hoffine‘s disturbing imagery taken from his project where childhood nightmares seem to come to life. In his statement he writes:

I believe that the Horror story is ultimately concerned with the imminence and randomness of death, and the implication that there is no certainty to existence. The experience of Horror resides in this confrontation with uncertainty. Horror tells us that our belief in security is delusional, and that the monsters are all around us.

Check out his portfolio here (NSFW), and for more horror imagery visit Robert Boud at http://robboudphotography.wordpress.com/.

Stilleben

Tanzania’s Lake Natron sure isn’t a friendly place. With its high soda and salt content, its caustic waters kills whatever organisms that enter it and slowly calcify their bodies, perfectly preserving them as they dry. It is a poisonously concentrated remnant of a 5,000 to 6,000 old fresh water lake that literally turns life into stone.

UK-born photographer Nick Brandt collected various washed-up animals by the lake and perched them in pre-death poses for his photo/essay book Across the Ravaged Land. A total of 120 pages, with 52 Quadtone plates, it was released by Abrams Books and has already received great criticism for its haunting, breathtaking imagery.

Find it on Amazon here, visit his official website here and read up on the lake here. Art prints are available from select galleries in the U.S..

UPDATE: Just to be clear, the book is not a 120 page collection of dead animals photographed by the lake. Using the publisher’s own words “The book offers a darker vision of this world, still filled with a stunning beauty but now tragically tainted and fast disappearing at the hands of man”, with parts of it containing the Lake Natron photographs.

Hey-O!

This was too funny: Found via the local emigration office (as the state I live in saw a lot of Swedes emigrate to the US) and written in old Swedish, this pamphlet offers advice for those contemplating a new life in the United States.

There are some legitimate ones like number 2 (and this is a rough translation):

Every one who fears physical labor should not emigrate.

and number 4:

Be sober, honest and industrious, and you will succeed here better than elsewhere, because these properties are those taken into account and paid in America.

But the twelfth and final point had me laughing out loud as it states:

Take good care of loose belongings and never leave them unattended for any fellow passengers (…) particularly when the Irish come aboard.

I’m amazed that an official document (although based on the writer I’m guessing it was released by a shipping company) shows such prejudice – and sadly enough we still have it today.

Armageddon Dub – the video

I’M EXCITED AS HECK TO ANNOUNCE that UK photographer Robert Boud will be directing the video for Call Me Greenhorn‘s  Armageddon Dub based on his Aftermath Apocalypse Photography project. He’s perfect for it as his imagery fits the feel of the song so good it’s eerie.

Drawing inspiration from surrealism and horror, his portfolio shows work that is dark and powerful without ever resorting to cheap shock value. It’s thought provoking and visually stunning – disturbing pieces of art, but art nonetheless.

I am thrilled beyond belief to have him do this for me and can’t wait to see the finished results. Make sure you check out his portfolio at robboudphotography.wordpress.comI’ll keep you updated on the video as it progresses.
