New Cover Song: Africa

March 31, 2013 | No comments | Posted in Music | Tags: , ,


Add yet another song to the list of songs I’ve completely ruined (such as “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Thunder Kiss ’65,” “El Paso,” “Waterloo,” and many others available on the music page) — this time around it’s “Africa” by Toto.

It was the perfect storm: I had the original song stuck in my head; I thought it would be really funny to do a slow, heavy, weird rendition; I had returned my Korg D1600 for a D3200, so I needed something to record.

Lost Episode of The Electric Chair 2D: Orchard Place Productions

Not long ago, I posted the “lost episode” of The Electric Chair 2D — one that I’ve never had the chance to complete. I spoke with the wonderful people from Orchard Place Productions, who brought us the sweet zombie short The Other Side.

I had a great time hanging out with them, and hope you enjoy it as well.

I’m really honored to be one of the supporters of the Kickstarter campaign that enabled Michale Graves to release his newest effort, Vagabond. I got the CD this week, and it’s amazing. He just released the video for “I Can Feel Heaven,” and I hope you enjoy.

New Song: Center Of My Eye

This is the first thing I cranked out using lots of new equipment (actually used equipment I procured from Ebay): The Korg D1600 and Korg Microkorg. It’s called “Center of My Eye” and employs the following: 2 tracks of Microkorg goodness; 1 track of my Ibanez SR405 through a Boss GT-10B; and 1 track of my sweet Kramer HST 300 electric guitar through the Line 6 Spider III amp.

Support Orchard Place

There’s a production house in Pittsburgh—Orchard Place—making great horror. They’re the ones that made my favorite film at the Eerie Horror Film Festival this year—The Other Side. They need you to vote for another film of theirs called Green-Eyed, which you can watch and rate accordingly. It’s up for a major screening and award if enough people get behind it. They’d love your support! Go to www.cinema48.com and under “Channels” select “USA cities from N to R” and you will see Green-Eyed there. Thanks!

Calling All Horror Authors!

November 18, 2012 | 2 comments | Posted in Horror, Writing | Tags: ,

Since episode 22 of The Electric Chair—the weekly horror show I host—I’ve been producing a segment where I read a short work of fiction. On top of reading from authors whose work is in the public domain, such as HP Lovecraft and Ambrose Bierce, I’ve also been reading from current authors who are so kind as to grant me permission to read their tales.

Here’s one I just read on the show: part one of HP Lovecraft’s “Herbert West–Reanimator.”

Herbert West–Reanimator, Part 1

If you’re an author who’s been published—either in print or on the web—I’d love to consider reading some of your short stories. Email me: corey AT midnightcorey DOT com. I’d love to hear from you.

Drive-In Super Monster Rama 2012

September 11, 2012 | No comments | Posted in Horror, Movies | Tags: , ,

I spent this past weekend at the Drive-In Super Monster Rama. It takes place every year at the Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, PA. Friday night they showed Theatre of Blood (1973), Horror House (1969), Equinox (1970), and Son of Blob (1972). Saturday featured Twins of Evil (1971), Countess Dracula (1971), Raw Meat (1973), and Psychomania (1973).

I’ll give a full rundown of how the weekend went in this week’s edition of The Electric Chair and soon on Rotten Rantings (hint: it was freaking sweet), but until then, enjoy a bunch of pictures. The Horror Movies book was a gift from my brother when I stopped to visit on Saturday afternoon. And we also went down to the Strip in Pittsburgh to eat at the original Primanti Bros. — thus the city pics.
