Well known for their work in gray scale, miniature artist Jason D’Aquino and tattoo guru and gallery owner Paul Booth have teamed up to present a gallery show of black and gray artwork featuring some of the worlds top artist and illustrators. Art fanatics can expect to see works by Chet Zar, Ron English, The Pizz, Chris Marrs, Tara McPherson, Robert Williams (one of the first pioneer’s behind the “lowbrow” art movement and founder of Juxtapoz Magazine) and a ton more. The press release boasts “This is show will be an opportunity for artists to reach within the darkest realms of their imaginations, and display their most raw and uncensored work to-date.”
A quick announcement for any horror, sci-fi, action, animation or cult filmmakers out there. If you are looking to gain added exposure for your short or feature film, this is the final week to submit it to the 2010 Toronto …
Montreal’s FanTasia Film Festival has announced its line-up for 2010, and we have the highlights.
As June comes to a close, I figured it handy to do a tally of current and upcoming horror and giallo score releases (digitally + CD). This will be a regular thing because it helps you and me keep track of what the heck is out there – which is substantial. I’ll update the list every two weeks (unless there’s a limited disc announcement that’s sure to result in fast sales), and also encourage readers to post details of upcoming titles I may have missed. (Those wanting non-blood-letting film score release news can also check out my other blog at mondomark.blogspot.com. The run-on sentences are bigger, and the blather is sometimes profound.)
I’d forgotten all about it this classic commercial for Osteo-BiFlex starring Frankenstein’s monster, until Liisa sent it my way this weekend. I wonder if liver-eating contortionist Eugene Victor Tooms from The X-Files uses this stuff now?
