It hasn’t been confirmed officially yet, but Richard J. Brooker‘s fanpage on Facebook as well as the Crystal Lake Memories page just started buzzing with condolences regarding his passing. Now, these things happens every now and then – Jackie Chan comes to mind as he’s “passed away” about umpteen times according to rumors – so keep an eye out on his official website for confirmation. He starred as Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part III and was the first to don the now-iconic hockey mask. Check out the trailer:
UPDATE: It has been confirmed via Friday the 13th: The Film Franchise that Richard indeed has passed away. This was posted by his former business manager Eric Branden on his Facebook:
UPDATE 2: His passing has been confirmed by dailydead.com, FEARnet and deadwintercon.

Alright, here we go: I just made a short teaser taste collecting soundbytes from thirteen out of the nineteen tracks off Call Me Greenhorn‘s They Call Me Superseven OST on Bandcamp – and it’s free! Yup, roughly 30 seconds each from this project that was about one month and a half in the making – there were some mixing issues as I basically am a Neanderthal that enjoys things a bit louder than the girlyman digital format can handle.
Anyway, that has all been sorted out so check it out here and don’t forget to spread the word via sharing on Facebook etc. The more the better. The teaser track (in full):

Well, I finally got around to create a Facebook page for my Call Me Greenhorn project. It sure took a while, but I’m gonna blame that on just being too damn busy to sit down and get around to doing it. Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve got releases coming out to the wazoo (please do pronounce that with a thick Jersey/Brooklyn-esque accent).
Anyway, I finished up the initial work, so how about heading over there and show some support? And for you old schoolers the URL is http://www.facebook.com/CallMeGreenhorn. Join up, and please share!

Holy moly, this guy/gal is amazing! Pardon the complete lack of info, but I just signed up for an account of Society6.com – one of those odd places where artists actually get paid in 2013! – and browsing what goodies they had to offer I stumbled across US (?) artist Replaceface who’s work is just killer.
Taking inspiration from the George Dawe portrait style of circa 1700, he/she takes the icons of our popular culture – well, I wouldn’t be too sure about Leonardo DiCaprio – and portrays them like generals, aristocrats and royalties. There’s some great ones featuring Bill Murray, Bruce Lee and Dave Grohl, and with prices for a 8″ x 9″ art print starting at $25 you can finally have some nobility in your common abode, ha ha ha.
Anyway, this is great stuff and I could easily see myself owning 5 or 6 of these. There’s a total of 26, so check them all out here and support the artist!
UPDATE: I found the artist’s official page on Tumblr and Facebook. Check ‘em out here (T) and here (FB).
Fill up that harddrive of yours ’til it explodes ’cause the great site FreeVintagePosters.com offers up tons of great looking, hi-resolution, fully printable posters available for download. Yay for the internet! There’s lots of goodies ranging from classic movie posters to travel advertisements and war propaganda, so check ‘em out here and like ‘em on Facebook!

Check it out: A new design created for my pal Troy Church and the rest of the crew over at The Bigfoot Diaries to commemorate their launching of their radio show will be made available as a limited-edition 4-color poster in the near future. It was announced on their Twitter earlier today.
The size is 11 x 17″ and even though I don’t know what it’ll cost or when it’s going to be made available, I suggest you send off a message on their official Facebook page or via their blog to reserve your copy today. Like now.

Well, as he recently made it official on his Facebook page, I guess I can reveal that the EP I spent a lot of December remixing is the upcoming The Man Who Never Dies EP by Australian musician The Jimmy C. The original version of the song as it appears on his new Orbital Debris album is damn great and I had fun sinking my teeth into it trying to give it a heavier, way more stoner rock kinda feel.
I ended up doing three versions in total. Like I initially told the guy I wanted to make one straight remix (where you pretty much just give the song a different sound with EQs, levels and effects), one alternative version where I set out to change some things with the sounds and the recording itself, and a final one where I kinda ‘f**ked with it’ giving it a complete make-over that might surprise everyone – including himself.
Now, all three remixes has been accepted by him – which I gotta say is pretty cool ’cause honestly I myself was kinda ‘oh, that third one is guaranteed not to end up on it’ – and with 4 new tracks added to it (again, this guy is amazingly prolific) I’m looking forward to see it released. No date yet, but I’ll keep you posted. In the mean time here’s the original version:
Records! Records! Records!
Well, here we go: UK label Dead By Mono Records just posted a lil’ teaser photo of the newly-printed sleeve for the No Way Out! Vol. 3 compilation CD on Facebook, giving you a slight inkling of what the fold-out looks like. Again, it’s heavy on the Tales From the Crypt vibe – like, how can you not like that groundbreaking comic? – and I think I can reveal that the main theme is threes. But I’m guessing that’s about as much as I can share right now.
There’s twenty bands in total on the compilation, including The Norliss Tapes making their physical debut with A Trip To the Moon. More info can be found on the label’s Facebook event here and the official website here. Out soon!
Well, call me Johnny-Come-Lately, but I’m slightly miffed I missed out on The Walking Dead: Torn Apart web series on YouTube. Now, granted, I am the worst kind of fan boy when it comes to a lot of things – I tend to busy myself with my own projects so I rarely keep track of anything - but after going through the third season of the series and becoming a huge fan I can’t believe I never 1) checked out AMC on the ‘Tube or 2) at least visited their Facebook page enough times to find out about it.
Anyway, this web-exclusive directed by special effects maestro Greg Nicotero offers up six ‘bytes’ that’s a nice addition to the original series. Focusing on divorced couple Andrew (Rick Otto) and Hannah (Lilli Birdsell) in the initial stages of the zombie apocalypse, this actually works as a sort of prequel to the TV-series, tying in nicely with the pilot episode.
Around twenty minutes in total, it’s definitely worth checking out. All six episodes can be found here.
