Escape From New York - "The Duke Arrives/Barricade"


"You are the Duke of New York. You're A number 1!"

I can listen to the theme song from John Carpenter's Escape From New York all day long, but this track is my weekend jam!




Walpurgisnacht (Highbury Cemetery Graphic Series No. 5)


Walpurgisnacht. Witches Night.

Tonight, we revel around bonfires and fly to the Brocken mountaintop by broomstick. Engage in unholy pagan ritual as we celebrate the spring equinox...




Closer to home, we revel in this day as the midpoint to the high holiday of All Hallow's Eve.

In honor of this special day, I have created another collage design for the Highbury Cemetery Graphic Series. A quick, free form piece to celebrate the countdown to the big night. Halloween. It inches ever so closer...

  

Svartsinn - "Mind Dust"


More wonderfully eerie dark ambient audio from Norwegian artist Svartsinn. This track really kicks in at the 2:45 mark, and I would love to incorporate this segment into my haunt...




Eleven Fifty Five.


Time for one more story... The 21st of April, 100 years ago at the waters around Spivey Point.




(Thanks to Pumpkinrot for the reminder.)


Night of the Living Dead at Cinema Wasteland


This past weekend I had the chance to go check out the biannual Cinema Wasteland horror convention in Cleveland, Ohio. The highlight of this show was the 50th anniversary of the George Romero zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead. I scored a few odds and ends from the multitude of vendors, but I made sure to add these two particular pieces to my collection. I'm sure they both thought I was some total weirdo, but a huge thanks to Judith O'Dea and Kyra Schon for the personalization!




They're coming to get you, Barbara...

Fifty years later, and they were both going strong! Here's to fifty more, ladies!

The next Cinema Wasteland convention is scheduled for September 29 - October 1. I can't wait to see what they have on tap for the fall show. See everyone there!

 

Norma Tanega - "You're Dead"


A great little Norma Tanega folk song recorded in 1966. This was featured in the 2014 vampire comedy,  What We Do In The Shadows...
