From The Depths of Hell?!? has a collection of 13 real animal taken straight from our nightmares, and I couldn't agree more! Especially that Octopus-looking thing with a human mouth! Can you imagine this thing coming at you while scuba-diving in the dark depths? How messed up is that?!?

Look What I Found!

While packing up the crap in my closet, I found my old "Swamp Thing" movie poster folded up and stuck between two books! I haven't seen it since I had it on display in our old house, and though it was lost forever. I can't wait to get a frame for it and put it up in my new office when we finally move into whatever new house we'll be buying.
I used to have a lot of old movie posters such as; "Dawn of The Dead" (1978), Russ Myer's "Super-Vixens", "Return of The Living Dead" and many others until we had a water leak in our old place, and they were all ruined except for "Star Wars", "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (1974), "Planet of The Apes" (1968), and now "Swamp Thing".


This is one of my favorite comic books in the world. Not because of a first appearance by a "vile new menace", not because it features a wildly popular artist or writer. It's one of my favorites because my grandmother took me to the comic-book shop on a sunny spring day back in 1985 and bought it for me.

Even though it's been almost almost 25 years, I can still remember most every aspect about that day. My grandmother died back in 1992, but everytime I read this comic, it's 1985 all over again, and I can still see her smiling at my youthful excitement of finally having a Hulk comic featuring his arch foe; "The Abomination."

New Art!

What can I say? I'm feeling a bit dark and melancholy today. As usual, prints are available here.

New "Nightmare on Elm Street" Trailer

I know that the "reboot" is all the rage right now, but I was utterly disappointed with the "Friday the 13th" reboot, only moderately pleased with Rob Zombie's "Halloween", but I did enjoy the new version of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", so I'm not sure how I feel about the new "Nightmare". I'll definitely miss Robert Englund in the role, but I'm a big fan of Jackie Earl Haley, so we'll see.

I hear they taste like sushi.

AT&T Successfully Predicts The Future!

I love old videos that may or may not successfully predict the future when it comes to technology. This one is from an AT&T advertising campaign waaay back in 1993, and they pretty much nail it for the most part. Via DarkRoastedBlend.

Happy Birthday Baby!

I made this yesterday for my wife's B-day. pretty cool, huh?

Trailer For "Paranormal Activity"

Okay, the buzz on this movie is TREMENDOUS! I don't usually jump on "the buzz bandwagon", but this seems like a good exception. It's only going to be in limited release, but I really hope this changes and it comes to my dinky little town.

This Would be Great...

If those douchebag terrorists who blow themselves up thinking they will be rewarded with 72 virgins, found this group waiting for them! I know, it's probably screaming and clawing hideous demons eating their intestines for all of eternity, but this would be funnier.

What The Hell is This?!?

From Weird News; "This creature was found by Russian soldiers on Sakhalin shoreline. Sakhalin area is situated near to Japan, it’s the most eastern part of Russia, almost 5000 miles to East from Moscow (Russia is huge). People don’t know who is it. According to the bones and teeth – it is not a fish. According to its skeleton – it’s not a crocodile or alligator. It has a skin with hair or fur. It has been said that it was taken by Russian special services for in-depth studies, and we are lucky that people who encountered it first made those photos before it was brought away." Upon first inspection, I though it was a dolphin, but dolphins don't have fur, so I'm at a loss.

Parents of The Year! NOT!

The Chive has posted a series of photos that will serve as a testament to truly horrible parenting and will make you realize that maybe you aren't doing such a bad job after all! While I'm sure that some of these are fakes, sadly enough, the majority are all too real - ENJOY!

This is the cover from the upcoming "Torch" #4. I am a huge fan of his work all the way back to 1993 when he did "Marvels". Just look how the light hits the waters and the figures. Amazing. Via SuperPunch.

We put a bid on this house on Monday, and I'm on pins and needles waiting for the owner to respond! This whole house-hunting thing is such a pain in the ass, and I'm really just sick of looking at boxes stacked all over the place! He has until Friday, but I sure hope we hear from him today. Patience is a virtue that I do NOT possess!


This is a 1977 Honda 750 "Cyclops" custom trike featured in "Mad Max". I don't think it's for sale, but I would definitely give my right one for it! Via the OldTimerWorkshop.

Great Story....

Seldom do I hear a story funny enough to re-tell it here, but this one is an exception, and the fact that it is true makes it all the more entertaining.
My wife has an aunt who is only three years older than her, who is married with two children; a three year-old boy and five year-old girl. Her aunt has a hard time with the children. So much so, she won't travel up here to Maine unless someone can go with her to assist with the kids. Anyway, she is a little tightly wound and INCREDIBLY easily embarassed - especially when it comes to the normal antics of mischevious children in public.
Let me set up the scene; they have well-to-do friends who own a lakehouse and invite them to spend the weekend with them at the lake and take the boat out. These people have no children. Instead, they have what I refer to as a"fru-fru dog". You know, those little yip-yip lapdogs with the long hair and a bow protruding from their head. The kind that are taken everywhere and treated as children. Well, apparently, these people even take their dog out for boat rides, but luckily, they have taken the precaution of fitting the dog with a little doggie life-vest. Good idea, right?
In the mind of a three-year old boy, the only thing more fun than a dog, would be a dog with a frickin' handle on it's back. "What could it be for"? "Well obviously, for picking up....and throwing."
Yes, without warning as the boat is speeding accross the lake, the boy picks up the dog by the handle, and with the tenacity of an olympic discus thrower; hurls the unlucky pup into the water! The stunned passengers could only watch as the little guy skips (yes, SKIPS) accross the lake multiple times until coming to a stop. As the pup's "mother" shrieks in horror, my wife's aunt recoils in morbid shock and embarrasment, and realizes that they will never, ever, ever be invited back to the lake.


Come out and plaa-aay!! I gotta get this on DVD. Via Mobseen.

Trailer For LEGION!

From one of the creepiest lines from the Bible where Jesus confronts the demon possessing a man; Mark 5:10 "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many."
I've heard about this film, but I finally got around to watching the trailer, and it looks scary as Hell! Anytime there is someone who can scurry up a wall like a spider, I am instantly creeped out! Plus, I'm a huge Charles Dutton and Dennis Quaid fan, so I can't wait to see this on January 10! Via ShockTillYouDrop.

Vintage Vampirella...

Yes, please. Via Figout.

Raiders of The Lost Ark Trailer From 1951!

This was done by whoisseyevan; the same guy who did the "Marvel Zombies" intro I posted a few days ago. Created by using old movie clips, new footage, and some masterful editing, this is a real treat for viewing - I would love to see the full length movie! Via The Retroist.
