Didn't some hicks nix this?

Given the renewed interest in 3D movies these days, I’m somewhat surprised that 3D audio isn’t receiving a similar comeback. After all, iPods have done wonders for sales of headphones (a requirement for 3D audio, not unlike the need for 3D glasses during movie-watching) and the promotional potential is definitely there. Although not the first …

Lose yourself in a book...

Those of you who read “Fear For Your Ears” will no doubt recognize the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company. Founded in 1984 by William L. Brown and Patrick Stansbury, they initially sponsored a one hour radio program on WGST 640. Thomas E. Fuller was soon recruited as a writer due to his background as a playwright …

Puppet Master

It’s very appropriate that I’m reviewing this movie now, as summer and Full Moon movies (especially the Puppet Master franchise) are very closely linked for me. Many days of the summer vacations of my youth were spent browsing the aisles at the (now-defunct) local West Coast Video with my younger brother and happily watching our …

Trace Doll Apparel http://www.etsy.com/shop/TranceDollApparel Corrosive Deconstruction Line ‘Zombie Attack’ T-Shirt For some, the summer isn’t all that fun.

There will come a time in …

ARCANE Magazine – A Review

ARCANE Magazine http://www.arcanemagazine.com/ Madness would be a primary motivation for anyone looking to involve him or herself in the current day magazine industry, with subscriptions dying and print costs rising. Madness, I might then assume, guides the hand that created ARCANE, a new magazine that identifies itself as “penny dreadfuls for the 21st Century.”  However, …

Vincent Price Presents: Volume 1

Vincent Price sold separately...

Although some might argue that the Vincentennial ended on May 27th (Vincent Price’s birthday), but we here at Gravedigger’s Local 16 disagree. After all, the US Bicentennial celebration lasted long after the anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Since our celebration started with a review of a Price-related radio drama series, why …

Young kids: If you ever want to get into the Dead Kennedys, you only need to pick up their first two full-lengths, the IN GOD WE TRUST INC. EP, the GIVE ME CONVIENCE compilation and, if you’re a big fan, the LIVE AT THE DEATH CLUB release.  Pretend that the band broke up in 1986 …
