Videogram Lunchmeat VHS!

May 14, 2015

Lunchmeat VHS

Yes! Here it is! I couldn’t be more excited to announce the second physical Videogram release, the Lunchmeat VHS! Released in collaboration with Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine and Doc Terror, this limited-edition VHS features the complete 2014 S/T album in visual form, edited as a faux-trailer show. Fourteen videos in total complete with idents.

But that’s not all! We went out of our way to make this one as beefy as possible, so as an added bonus the VHS includes a 3D version – with glasses included! Wrapped in a clambox shell and featuring artwork by Loud Comix‘ illustrator Jamie Vayda, these are available via Lunchmeat‘s official website only, and, to make it fair for everyone, there are no pre-orders taken. Get it here.

EDIT: The VHS has sold out. A huge thank-you to everyone for the amazing support!

EDIT II: For those that missed out on the VHS the video is now available as a digital download via VHX.com! It includes the original 34-minute Videogram experience and comes with the VHS-master of the S/T album as a bonus. Get it here.

To commemorate this trés cool release, and give the awesome work Jamie did its due, I am also doing a one-time campaign on Teespring. Screenprinted in blood-red ink on premium yellow t-shirts (giallo, get it?), these limited-edition t-shirts are gorgeous and available in all sizes (S – 3XL). Once they’re gone they will not be reprinted, so make sure to reserve yours today! Get it here.

Since they just made it official I figured I could share the album sleeve for The Stovebolts‘ upcoming album Over the Limit. The artwork was created by Loud Comix‘ creator Jamie Vayda, and I was asked to do the coloring. It turned out pretty cool I think!

Out soon, so make sure to check ’em out on Facebook here and visit Blahll!! Records here.

Post #650: Summing up 2013

December 31, 2013

Oh jeez, has it been a whole year already? Well, 2013 sure flew by fast I can tell you and I can’t say I remember that much on account of pretty much working my ass off for these past 52 weeks. In fact I once again had to go through the blog in order to check up on what happened and when because it’s all kind of a blur to me. So here we go:

copyright Sellergren Design 2011!January saw the release of Germany-based CRKO #3/4, which I made one of the covers for. The rough mix of In Space, originally slated for my first full length album, somehow turned into a 7-song EP released towards the end of the month. The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West was released in a mammoth 5 DVD box collecting their initial 28 episodes plus bonus goodies like The Norliss TapesGroovy video. My work for the series earned both me and The Norliss Tapes our own pages on IMDB.com.

February saw the release of Sal Canzonieri‘s book Electric Frankenstein, compiling posters and record sleeves made for them during the period of June 2005 to December 2013, but I’ve still to receive any confirmation that my contributions are in it. Check it out on Amazon.com.

March saw the initial demos for my faux-OST L’Isola die Morti Viventi being created, starting out with A Modest Tribute to Fabio Frizzi. Meanwhile I finished up most of the tracks for the Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West soundtrack album and released the doomsday-dub Armageddon Dub, with a b-side featuring some drumming courtesy The Jimmy C.

squawkyApril kicked off with the release of the super-silly EP Squawky – featuring one of my personal fave b-sides The Name is West. A teaser-taste freebie of the coming soundtrack album was released and the They Call Me Superseven OST was released mid-month. The web series ran a successful campaign on Kickstarter, generating funds for the third season. UK label Dead by Mono‘s third installment of No Way Out! saw the physical debut of The Norliss Tapes with the track A Trip to the Moon. Me and UK photographer Robert Boud crossed paths resulting in some pretty cool collaborations. The end of the month saw the release of Call Me Greenhorn’s new-wave-ish Chasing the Dawn EP, originally slated for inclusion in an Australia-produced feature, but somehow that fell through. The poster I created to commemorate the launch of The Bigfoot Diaries live radio show was released in a limited edition.

May saw the release of Robert Boud’s video for Armageddon Dub, more dub sounds as The Titan Was Deemed Unsinkable was posted on SoundCloud, more videos as Robert Griffith‘s Here Comes Gorbot was made official and The Harvester appeared on SoundCloud, slated for an EP that I totally forgot about. The Jimmy C released the eight-track EP The Man Who Never Dies featuring three mixes I did and the month ended with the release of the CMGH2 album, aka The Abandoned Project.

June kicked off with a teaser taste from my stoner project Ursa Major, followed by The Hit ‘In Sounds’ of Today’s Outside Crowd album and I chipped in some $$$ on Kickstarter for James R. Petix and Sarah Babila‘s documentary It Came From Detroit.

July had me creating some merchandise designs for Belgium’s own Captain Catastrophy, I released the I’m Normal! cloudcast on MixCloud, released the “summer bonus” EP L’amour en Apesanteur and started my second side project Get Carpenter – I gotta admit I just love that name!

August saw me launching my page on Society 6, kicking off with the August 18, 1973 series honoring Tobe Hooper‘s horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. My stoner side project Ursa Major debuted with its 18-minute two-track Like Leaves and the end of the month saw the release of my faux-OST L’Isola die Morti Viventi.

September saw the launch of greenhorndub.bandcamp.com where I added the four-track The Titan Was Deemed Unsinkable EP after things turned out less-than-optimal over at dubmusic.com. The same month Pink Hulk EP followed. The John-Carpenter-meets-King-Tubby track Cutthroats at Midnight was finished and I began work on a S/T EP. The end of the month saw the release of the Halloween-themed The Ghost of Lee Van Cleef EP and Robert Boud’s video The Modern Day Holocaust.

In October I chipped in more of my hard-earned cash to support Tal Zimerman‘s project Why Horror? on Kickstarter, a documentary on the whys behind this film genre, and I even had a chance to do an interview with the guy for Swedish Gore Film Society. Towards the end of the month my second Haunted House of Horrors cloudcast was released in time for Halloween.

November saw me creating some artwork for U.S.-based true crime magazine Serial Killer Magazine and the end of the month saw the release of the Cutthroats at Midnight EP.

Finally, December saw the launch of Jamie Vayda‘s Loud Comix #2 – featuring a sleeve by yours truly – the release of the It Came From Detroit documentary – check it out! – and some videos I edited with a new freebie video editing software: Battle è in Arrivo, In Orbit, Invasion of the Dead and Voodoo Rhythm/A Feast on Flesh.

Yikes! How’s that for a list? Gee, no wonder I’m tired. But then again, I am quite enjoying myself and hopefully people out there enjoy what I create as well. Got more cool things happening in 2014 and I’d appreciate you joining me to check ’em out. ‘Til then, Happy New Year!

Loud Comix issue 2 preview

I’m stoked as hell to announce that Jamie Vayda just made some choice panels from the coming second issue of Loud Comix official on his Facebook page! Wrapped in a sleeve by yours truly, the issue offers stories by Sal Canzonieri (of Electric Frankenstein fame), Darin MartinezRest Stop of the Dead, and Erika Lane‘s hilariously looking Lester the Porn Fairy (!!!) among others. Check it out here.

Both Jamie and the comic book’s been getting lots of positive feedback lately (well deserved if you ask me!) as he’s not only bringing back the classic, old school underground comic but also doing a damn fine job doing it. After the first, self-published issue the comic was picked up by Birdcage Bottom Books and now they’ll be hauled off to New York to represent at the Society of Illustrators‘ prestigious Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (cleverly abbreviated MoCCA.)

The issue will be out this month, and you can can get it via Birdcage Bottom Books here. Check it out!

Round ’em Up!

Well, that was a quick week! Jeez, I’m guessing ol’ Einstein* was right after all. Anyhoo, another productive week, or make that “semi-productive” (I’ll get into that), and here’s what’s new in Camp Sellergren:

The image at the top is my finished ad for the upcoming issues of Loud Comix, a collection of comics written by punk rock heroes and illustrated by Jamie Vayda. There’s tons of cool stuff to come (the first edition features stories written by Sonny Harlan, Alan King, Frankie Nowhere and Erika Lane), and yours truly is doing the sleeve for the second issue out in November. Distributed by Birdcage Bottom Books you can get your copy here. Find Jamie on Facebook here.

Things have been real slow over at Society 6. My God Save the Queen art print sure got some attention, but other than that I haven’t had time to produce much at all (again, I’ll get into that). I got around to add some sticker designs over at Red Bubble (some turned out real neat like Lysergic Saucer-Man), so check them out here. My official Facebook page broke the 1,000 followers limit these past few days (yay!), and cool artists I found on S6 are Olive Primo Design + Illustration, Jazzberry Blue, and Hillary White producing more awesomeness with her Sir C.H.U.D. portrait. Check them all out!

Speaking of art, you gotta go check out Jason Edmiston‘s stuff! This guy is just amazing. Mainly focusing on horror-themed art, he also got some cool music-related stuff like this mutant Joey Ramone portrait that is just gorgeous. On average, prices range from $40 up to $85 (a bargain considering the quality of his work!) so check him out and show some love.

In the cool t-shirt department, Madman Marz announced on the official Facebook page that they’re kicking off their Halloween holiday sale deducting $10 off their prices, starting October 1st. More info here.

Music-wise I’ve been busy working on Call Me Greenhorn‘s Cutthroats at Midnight EP. This track made a bit of a stir and I was pleasantly surprised seeing Gorilla Film Magazine once again plugging it along with Robert Boud‘s video for Armageddon Dub! Things came to a halt though since Sweden decided to introduce “Blitzkrieg Winter”, having the temperature make a staggering drop from an average of +15 degrees to zero (make that 59 – 32 F) in one day and the next thing you know I’m sick as a dog and blowing earth tone rainbows into tissues. Got four songs finished though and I’ll get right back to it as soon as I feel better.

Have a great weekend!

*Einstein calculated that the closer an object travels at the speed of light, the slower time passes. This applies, of course, the other way ’round as well. And with the universe being a result of Big Bang – a humongous explosion we’re still in the middle of! – that’s slowly losing its momentum, we actually are experiencing time speeding up.
