Strange Jason

Out of the two co-founders of Gravediggers Local 16, Strange Jason is certainly the one who is named Jason.

Music In Costume: Darkest of the Hillside Thickets go as The Police

The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets do probably the best cover of The Police. I recently watched OUT OF BOUNDS, this Anthony Michael Hall movie that was scored by Stewart Copeland of The Police. Let’s just say there’s a reason why Sting had the solo career afterwards. Which one do you like better? VS

Music In Costume: The Groovie Ghoulies dress up as The Ramones

I kind of like the cover more than the original. Both are excellent, but the guitar from the Groovie Ghoulies rendition (particularly this one from their ‘Monster Party’ collection) is fast and dirty. Which one do you prefer? VS

SJTV: Commercial Interruption

‘sup, kiddies? No SJTV this week due to preparations for the Halloween season. I guess you’ll just have to find another way to KILL some time at work (or wherever else you read these little musings.) But don’t worry – we still have some things to help rot your brain – some classic Tales From …

Happy 50th To The Munsters!

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of The Munsters. Last week saw the 50th anniversary of The Addams Family tv show, but since we work blue collar here, we have a bit of an affinity towards the middle class American dream that is The Munsters. We’ll have more about this on this week’s episode of 6ftplus, …

SJTV: Tales From The Crypt, ‘The Switch’

Just because he’s dead doesn’t mean our Crypt Keeper doesn’t have to stay in shape, as he opens the episode by lifting some ‘dead’ weights. And before we get a chance to make any more puns, in walks ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER wearing a Tales From The Crypt T-shirt. He’s here to turn the Crypt Keeper from …

SJTV: Tales From The Crypt, ‘Dead Right’

Welcome to SJTV: Tales From The Crypt, as we start to recap the second season of the HBO series Tales From The Crypt. In the initial installment, the future George Bluth Sr. decides to woo the future ex-Mrs. Bruce Willis in an episode that shows that money is thicker than water. Or something. DEAD RIGHT …

SJTV: The Results

After closing the poll yesterday (thanks to those who voted) we ended up with a clear winner for this inaugural edition of SJTV:  Yep, I will do my darndest to offer something new to say about the old HBO horror anthology, as it was the clear winner. But before we dive headfirst into the Nostalgia, I …

SJTV: Rock the Vote

I don’t watch a lot of television, especially compared to what I used to. My teenage self is envious of my adult self, because if fifteen-year-old Strange Jason had access to Netflix and Hulu and all these other troves of shows and content, he would be in heaven. He would not be going outside AT …

Stop the Countdown!

Over the past weekend, I walked into a Party City to kill some time and see if there was any creepy-Birthday related supplies as a last minute celebration of a particular bat-winged DJ I know. And, despite it not even being August, there was a section that had been cleared out, plastered with orange wallpaper …

Record Store Day 2014

This year’s Record Store Day sponsors are Red Bull, Red Eye, Universal, and WB records (along with others.) Plus, with bands like Aerosmith and Linkin Park getting in on the celebration, I’m just about done with Record Store Day. It was cool that they developed this ‘holiday’ to drum up sales for the dying brick+mortar …

Doin’ it for the Lulz: Charlie Short and Omegle

I still hate the term ‘creepypasta.’ But some of this internet-urban-legend-horror has produced a couple of stars – Laughing Jack, Jeff the Killer, Unwanted House Guest. There even was an actual movie made with an honest-to-god monster, Smiley. So though the name is stupid as fuck, it’s actually producing some horror for the ADHD-minds of …

In Tribute: Lux Interior

Lux Interior (aka Erick Lee Purkhiser) died five years ago today. A lot more will be written by those who knew him, who saw him perform, those who had a personal connection with the man and his band’s music. Since I’m a gravedigger, I usually find out about things after they’re dead, so I have no “The …

Interview: Ron Rochondo of THE MANGLED DEAD

“Meanwhile some dude is saving up to put monster truck tires on his van but can’t because his rent is too high. That’s the world we live in, and it sucks.” It’s clear that The Mangled Dead are appreciated here, having written a blurb about the band once or twice on this site, as well …

13 Days: Almost Made It

  There won’t be an update from me tomorrow. I’ll be travelling, the first of two trips this month. I like visiting other places but the work of getting there drives a slow metaphorical nail into my left temple. Perhaps that’s one of my main issues: I want to be in Prague but I don’t …

13 Days: Christmas List

Everyone I know is getting gift cards this year. Nobody gave me a Christmas list this year so in lieu of all those missing, here’s mine: Christmas List I want less remakes. At this point, it all seems like pandering to an older audience that can’t be impressed or attracting a newer audience that isn’t …

13 Days: Why Didn’t You Put Up That Xmas Tree?

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for the last hour. The song is less than two minutes long. You can do the math. If there was egg nog in the apartment, I’m pretty sure I’d be drinking to it. There’s something just powerful in the line “Are you gonna fuck it up this …
