Michale Graves at Peabody’s

July 9, 2012 | 1 comment | Posted in Horror, Music, Video | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Last Saturday, I got to see Michale Graves with my friends Misfitboy and Thera at Peabody’s in Cleveland. As usual, I shot lots of video. First of all, you’ll see a fantastic young death metal band Silver Skull perform on the Pirate’s Cove stage; then you’ll see the great Pittsburgh punk band The Cheats; and finally, you’ll see Michale Graves with his new sweet lineup. Enjoy.

I shot these clips on three different devices . . . a GoPro Hero2, a Nikon CoolPix, and my Droid X2 phone. The sound quality varies among the different clips because of this.

Megadeth and Rob Zombie, Stage AE, Pittsburgh, PA

May 21, 2012 | 1 comment | Posted in Horror, Music | Tags: , , , ,

On May 16, 2012, I was one of those lucky people to get to go see the Megadeth – Rob Zombie show in Pittsburgh. It’s the first time that I’ve been to the outdoor stage at Stage AE (I went to see Primus on their indoor stage last October). While I’ve seen Rob Zombie countless times — both as White Zombie and Rob Zombie — this is the first time I’ve seen Megadeth, and I’m glad I did.

The only weak part of the show was the opening band, Lacuna Coil. I couldn’t have cared less about them, and their music was very bland. Then Dave Mustaine brought up the girl who sings for a duet rendition of Et Tu Le Monde, which would have been much better without her.

Other than that, the show rocked. I shot videos on my point-and-shoot camera, and also took a ton of pictures. Enjoy.

I’m a Horror Palace Dropout

May 20, 2012 | 8 comments | Posted in Horror, Movies, Podcasting | Tags: , ,

It was inevitable, I know. My podcasting philosophy doesn’t sit well with those who aspire to make a career out of it and/or those who take horror and podcasting very, very seriously. But I’ve talked about all of that way too much in the past — you know my position.

Crumbling palaceMy days were numbered there, which I realized from day one. Why was I there in the first place then? I’ve been asked that by several people now. My main reason was Jay of the Dead, whose friendship and kindness renewed my faith in horror podcasters coming together to do great things. He left the show and put me in charge of it, which I did out of respect for him and the great show he had started.

We all know that podcast suddenly stopped in a rash of controversy — which boils down to a certain member of the podcast becoming irate over a comment I made about Argento. Amazing! We came up with a story to cover it all up so that nobody looked bad and that the highly-cherished reputation of das Netzwerk would remain untarnished.

I was begged to stay on das Netzwerk — despite harsh treatment and my suspicions that things may not be what they seem. Repeatedly begged to stay. So I returned to solo-casting with The Electric Chair. That lasted for 3 episodes on das Netzwerk, at which point I left, continuing the show on my own. The reasons for this are many. Let’s just say that my leaving coincided with heated disagreements over the treatment of podcasters and leadership decisionmaking.

In fact, just before I left das Netzwerk, my friends on Devour the Podcast were thrown out under controversial circumstances.

So, I’m in the very awkward position of no longer supporting or promoting das Netzwerk, while still having many friends there who make wonderful podcasts, and are all-around great people.

The beginning of the end? We’ll see. But I’m gonna keep doing what I love to do. Thanks to everyone who has show their kind support throughout all of this!

The Most Interesting Trollhunter in the World

The Most Interesting Trollhunter in the WorldI was reviewing Trollhunter (2011) for an upcoming podcast, and the joke was made that Hans, the trollhunter in the movie, was basically the most interesting man in the world (the Dos Equis man). So I had to make this.
