Price and I love us some black metal. But I find it hilarious that the genre, as well as its sense of style, was invented by a gang of drunk adolescents well over 20 years ago. Astonishingly, said style still inspires “adults” to dress up like melting fudge pops, grimace like an idiot, and take pictures of themselves. There’s nothing more ridiculous. Wait, there’s one thing more ridiculous. Putting that picture on the internet. So go be an idiot and amuse everyone else. Please.

In the airport on my way to North Carolina this past Friday, a magazine I was unaware of called Paste caught my eye. This was largely due to the cacophony on the cover (took me a minute to realize it was gunshot + glass) and the highlighted Q&A with Chuck Palahniuk, of whom I am a huge fan. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of good material found within.
Atlanta’s Snowden is awesome. They also aren’t very popular, and that’s a god damned shame considering how many bands there are out there that have attempted to do what they do, failed to come close to achieving their level of atmospherics and dark hooks, and yet still receive more press. For god’s sake, there’s a girl in the band! That alone should move at least 50,000 units, but I guess it’s all about who you know. It reeks of voodoo.
Anyway, more after the jump.
You have all seen these quizzes, “What color are you?”, “What Type of Sandwich are You?”, “Which Sex and the City Character are you?” etc. Well, thanks to our friends at Google, as I was working on the site today, I noticed an ad for the “Which horror movie Villain are YOU?” quiz.
Now I usually don’t partake in these types of personality tests disguised as a silly game. However, considering that this site revolves around the horror genre and my devotion to said genre, I felt it was both responsible and in my best interest to investigate for the readers. You never know what you could find.
HOLY SHIT I JUST REMEMBERED, Dexter Season 3 premiers tonight on Showtime. This has been without a doubt my favorite television series since Transformers. It is indeed that good.
I have been waiting in anticipation for this series to start back up again the millisecond after I finished the last episode of season 2, with my interest piqued even further by a very creative and innovative ad campaign that I saw throughout the transit system of New York City.
This page has a nice collection of all the covers featured in the ad.
This is just too awesome. I haven’t thought about the Vampirella character in what seems like years, so stumbling upon this contest here was quite the pleasant surprise.
I always had a thing for comic book women. They were the first loves of my life, before I knew what Victoria’s Secret was.
I categorize Vampirella as one of those timeless horror bunnies, the ones that send a shiver through your loins when you’re a prepubescent teen whose image of mostly-nude woman is as accurate in cartoon form as it is in corporeal form. You know, when a cartoon nudie has the same effect as Skinemax soft porn would have a bit later in life. You all remember the giddy feeling (ladies too).
Anyways, check out this contest where artists have submitted their interpretations of the vampiric vixen.
Seriously, how amazing is that video? Vincent introduced me yesterday to this guy‘s claymation videos that he has posted to YouTube.
Not only are these things horrorish and gory and filled with pure evil, they are actually extremely well put together and are a pleasure to watch. Most of the time this sort of things comes across as over the top and cheesy, but not so here at all.
If you don’t like Mastodon, well we’re very disappointed in you, but we won’t ask you to leave this site immediately. But again, we’re disappointed. Go listen to them and like them. Everyone still here? Good. Anyways, this piece of magic was stolen from one of the best music websites around, metalsucks. It’s fantastic, and it’s about Mastodon, so it’s Mastadontastic. YOU LOVE IT.
Well, I thought I loved zombies, but apparently not as much as this young lady.
While searching for more information on zombies this morning, I came across this gem, ZOMBIE JUICE!, an equal mix of honest love and appreciation for zombies and zombie culture, and late 90′s god-awful web design.
I want you to pay close attention to the cliche animated GIFs, the background, and of course the bones that line the top of each page. I’m pretty sure I broke Google’s web indexing by just visiting this site. Alarms must be going off somewhere.
Some of the “features” of this site that you surely cannot miss:
