Happy Chanukkill!

The sun is down and Chanukkah is here! Since I often celebrate Christmas here with collections of oddball links related to the holiday, it’s only fair for me to do the same with the Festival of Lights. Let’s start things off with a book I’ve been meaning to cover here for ages: Hershel and the …

Yet More Christma(dnes)s

481px-Caspar_David_Friedrich_052

Season’s Bleedings! Like Santa Claus, I’m reaching into my bag of goodies to find the best horrorday treats for you all. And you don’t even have to leave me any cookies! Fans of H.P. Lovecraft should remember his wonderful Christmas poem “Christmastide,” which was surprisingly free of cosmic horrors and racism. What they might not …

Numa Numa Godzilla

I remember when the internet was flooded with comedy videos of people dancing to the “Numa Numa” song. It turns out its actual name is “Dragostea din tei” (which means “Love from the lindens” in English). It’s from a Moldovan group called O-Zone and you can read more about its history here. In honor of …

Video Store Day Is Here!

videostoreday2014

It’s the third Saturday of October and that means it’s Video Store Day! It’s when we all make an effort to go out and support our (surviving) local video stores. Given the resurgence in the popularity of VHS and all the special offers available at various stores (freebies, discounts, etc.), it’s hard to see why …

Music In Costume: The Fuzztones dress up as Screaming Lord Sutch

I think people compare Screamin’ Lord Sutch to Alice Cooper, since they both came up around the same time in the 60’s/70’s. Still, I think Alice has a little more grit and grossness, whereas Sutch would later go on to politics. Still, his music is seen as an inspiration for the modern mad garage scene, …

Music In Costume: Demented Are Go dress up as Devo

It doesn’t surprise me that Demented Are Go would do a DEVO cover. Nor does it surprise me that they did “Mongoloid,” the now-barred term for someone of low-intelligence. Considering the mutant rock that comprises Demented Are Go, it seems like a fits-like-hand-in-glove territory. Fun music for the whole family. Personally, I like the frenetic …

Music In Costume: Bloodsucking Zombies From Outer Space dress up as Alice Cooper

Have you ever shown up to a Halloween party and someone was wearing the same costume as you? It’s a mortifying because it implies a lack of creativity or imagination, nullifying whatever efforts you placed in crafting your disguise. That’s what it IMPLIES, but that’s crap. If you told twenty people to dress up as …

Music In Costume: The Mutilators dress up as Michael Jackson

Is it odd for a psychobilly band to cover the King of Pop? Answer: Yes. But I also think that Psychobilly is a much more varied genre than what it appears to be. Psychobilly bands who don’t hold themselves to a purity ideal have produced an interesting range of cover songs over the past thirty …

Haunted Attraction Walkthroughs III

Another year, another collection of videos of people visiting haunted attractions. There’s quite the selection this year: professional haunted attractions, home haunts and yard haunts. Although many of the videos are from 2012-2013, I made sure to include some older material. There’s even one from 1995! But let’s cut down on the hype and get …

Reminder: Fuck Spirit Halloween

FuckYouSH

It’s the 9th of October and it’s my annual reminder that Spirit Halloween is a peddler of cheap shit and horribly racist and sexist costumes (and just some downright idiotic ones).  And that’s even before you factor in the allegations of their parent company stocking goods which are claimed to use stolen designs. I mean, …

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

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 …

El Santo de Mayo 2014!

Just like last year, we have an important update about El Hijo del Santo. Sadly he is retiring due to spine injuries that will prevent him from wrestling anymore. On the plus side, the injuries are not severe enough to keep him from leading a normal life. Let’s look back on his career with the …
