The King in Yellow

Where flap the tatters of the King...

“Along the shore the cloud waves break, The twin suns sink beneath the lake, The shadows lengthen In Carcosa. Strange is the night where black stars rise, And strange moons circle through the skies But stranger still is Lost Carcosa. Songs that the Hyades shall sing, Where flap the tatters of the King, Must die …

Calls for Cthulhu

It’s no secret that I’m fond of posting humorous Lovecraftian videos here at Gravedigger’s Local 16. So when I heard that someone decided to play off the name “The Call of Cthulhu” by doing a series featuring the high priest of the Great Old Ones as the host of a call-in show, I was very …

Tuesday Update

Good Morning. We’re experiencing some technical difficulties with the site at the moment. Pages, Archives and anything that isn’t on the front page remains currently unavailable. While we work it out, we’ll suspend Tuesday uEtsy until next week. Sorry about the issues. Update 1:52pm EST: The issue should be resolved. Sorry for the mixup.

Bad Whoremoans, SAY WHAT AGAIN

For the longest while, ‘SAY WHAT AGAIN,’ or the second Bad Whoremoans album, was widely unavailable. The first self-titled release has been spread along the internet like a cute-kitten viral video, but the second one? Until recently, many people (myself included) didn’t even know there was as second album. But, now available for less than …

Night of the Thanksliving Dead

Night of the Thanksliving Dead

The amazing picture above is the work of the very talented Brandon Leach. How did I find the image? I stumbled across it while checking out the wall on the Facebook page for the band Zombie! (as heard on our podcast). I love the carvings on the trees, which are a humorous reference to the …

Even More Vile Verses

Maybe that "solo XP" idea wasn't so good after all...

After doing two lengthy installments in the “Vile Verses” series, I had foolishly thought I had found all of the spooky poems I could ever find in my last entry. However, the recitation of Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky” in A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell made me realize there was still plenty of material out there. …

Tuesday uEtsy: Jezebel Charms

Jezebel Charms http://www.etsy.com/shop/JezebelCharms  Human Skeleton Brass Cuff Bracelet Macabre Bones in the Mausoleum Strange that a term called ‘Black Friday’ has been adopted by the public in a semi-positive manner. Of course, it’s not positive for those working the large stores, putting in insane hours for the rabid masses trying to score manaical deals on objects. Of …

Tuesday uEtsy: Pinz n’ Thingz

Pinz n’ Thingz www.etsy.com/shop/PinznThingz Official Site      Police Box Necklace with Union Jack flag, inspired by Doctor Who and the TARDIS “It’s too early for Christmas,” said Young Gus recently. Chronologically, it was correct. It’s the middle of November. There’s still the business of the American Thanksgiving to be dealt with, as well as …

Things I Dig Up

For about five years, I resided in Troy, New York. It was one of the three cities in the “Tri-City Region,” the other two being Schenectady and the state capitol, Albany. Schenectady and I never hit it off. My only forays included hanging out with a semi-crazy goth girl I met while she worked at …

6′+ Episode 17 is Up!

To quote the description given at the new listing: “Kind of a light episode this time around as we recover from Halloween. But, we’d be wrong if we didn’t pay tribute to the greatest day in Kaiju history, the birthday of the King of the Monsters – Godzilla. We’ll have Man…or Astro-Man?, The Creeping Cruds …

SOS MUMMY

Look, we need to do some major work to save our Mummies. I thought that The Mummy did a decent enough job showing how a mummy can be frightening by amplifying both its undead qualities as well as its supernatural powers. The Karloff, shuffle-strangle-moan version can’t really work in today’s world. Vampires, Werewolves and Zombies …

Guest Post: McVladie Interviews author Elizabeth Miller

[Today’s guest post is brought to us by one, McVladie. But let us allow her to introduce herself:] It is ironic isn’t it that a writer can go on for ions about the characters they have created yet when it comes to self description there is a void as deep as a black hole….HELLLOOOO Can …

The path of Excess leads to SAW 3D.

A post-Halloween tradition is to bust out the Minutemen as a palate cleansing device. I like Minutemen a lot. ‘The Punch Line’ got me hooked. Eighteen songs, fifteen minutes; they’re both complex and simple, dealing with deep context, diverging abstracts and yet, still very accessible. The music isn’t obtuse. It’s not the 1-2-3-4 punk rock …

Godzilla and King Kong, Together Again

As it’s the Big G’s birthday, I thought it would be nice to pay tribute to one of his greatest battles. I was stuck on what to do, until I discovered that the Peruvian fast food chain Bembos decided to do a humorous ad reuniting the two (well, reasonable facsimiles of the two) that’s probably …
