Rocky Schenck

D.J., 1999

"Rocky Schenck is at once creator and master technician, composing densely toned, beautifully tactile, and deeply evocative images - dreams and projections of a fully realized inner jurisdiction. Freed by darkroom artistry and painterly manipulation of print surface, he outstrips the representational world, revealing the richness of his visual moments through his photography." (quote from)

The Unsuccessful Elf

Ford, the brain behind Kiddie Records Weekly tells us: "Paul Wing, one of my favorite storytellers, narrates this charming tale about Edgar, a baby elf that grows much too fast. The beautifully illustrated sleeve is by "Reairuin." Does anybody have any information on this artist? "

Robert Berry of retroCRUSH has interviewed Alison Arngrim, the girl (I suppose she is a woman by now...) who played the snotty little spoiled brat in Little House on the Prairie.
And it's a really fun and interesting talk. Everyone with a taste for anything pop cultural should read this. A lot of facts and information you wouldn't want to live without and a lot of laughs, is what you get!

"(R. B.): I thought it would be a fun project to just catalog every single character that’s ever been on that show. Some just mysteriously appear on the show and (the story has them) living there for 4 years. Like there’s this Blacksmith that is a part of the town, and you never…

(A. A.): There’s some banker and then you’re like “whatever happened to that banker?” (laughs)

Right, there should be like 9,000 people living in Walnut Grove if you really listed them all out.

There’s some child who’s sick, and they come to see Doc Baker, and then you never see them again. Or the little girl who was crippled, and had one leg shorter than the other, and Pa made shoes for her.

She grew up to do other shows.

Well that was Kim Richards. And do you know who Kim Richards is?

Well, I know her as an actress.

She was in Nanny and The Professor, and she was the little crippled girl on Little House on The Prairie, and her sister Kyle Richards was also on…I believe it was that Patricia Neal episode where she was dying, and her three children had to get adopted.

She was also on this horrible show, it was a spin off of Diff’rent Strokes, called Hello, Larry!

YES! Oh my god!

McLean Stevenson’s show, she was his daughter.

Yep. Well here’s the kicker. There’s a third sister, who’s their older sister, named Kathy Richards…she was a child actress, too, but she got married when she was
18 or 19, and who did she marry?

Uhhh….Rod Stewart?

Mr. Hilton! Kim Richards is Paris Hilton’s Auntie."

Hi everyone.


Asian Horror Encyclopedia

Abyss :
The abyss is often characterized as the underworld or the abode of the dead. This often places it underground or inside mountains. Chinese demonic tradition holds the underground is the abode of subterranean demons, as well as the world of the dead. The Japanese and the South Sea Islanders have the curious tradition of placing the abyss beneath the sea or at the bottom of lakes. This ties in with the myth of undersea cities and palaces as in the Japanese classic fairy tale "Urashima Taro," reminiscent of King Arthur's Avalon.


Madness :
A potentially horrific state of mind. Madness can be a source of terror to the afflicted themselves and to their sane companions. Highly exaggerated as threat in popular culture, madness can be used effectively to invoke horror and modify audience attitudes towards a character.

Rashomon :
A ghost tale of old Kyoto not to be confused with the Akutagawa short story and movie with the same name. In this tale, a man meets a young woman at Rashomon Gate, who turns out to be a ghost. He slashes off her hand, which he proudly displays to everyone. The ghost uses this pride to get her hand back.

Live at the Sandalwood

Above image is a cut-out from the back cover art work.

Up this week at Pastor McPurvis' Weekly mp3 Talent Show is a sticky sweet and somewhat funky offering from the band Reunion.

Also: Album Cover Theme of the Week is pipes! Very nice and colorful covers!

Modern American Portrait Drawings

"The art of portraiture, after thriving for generations at the forefront of the visual arts, rode a roller coaster of reputation in the twentieth century. First it was re-empowered as experimental, then discredited in an age of abstraction, and gradually rediscovered. But although portrait traditions were buffeted by new ways of thinking about art and the individual, artists never completely abandoned the figure; they continued to experiment. These drawings from the National Portrait Gallery's collections, dating from the 1880s to the 1980s, are adventurous, assertive, witty, or monumental. They all reflect modern themes and aesthetic concerns, confirming the vitality of twentieth-century portraiture. ..."
"The Five Spot in New York was a raffish neighborhood bar that began promoting of avant-garde jazz bands in the late 1950s. It was probably where Elaine de Kooning drew this image of Ornette Coleman playing the alto saxophone. Coleman's sensational debut at the Five Spot in 1959 was the culmination of a long war with jazz conventions. Largely self-trained, he refused to follow swing or bebop conventions of improvisation and chord progressions. Coleman's unorthodox playing was at first controversial, but eventually his "free jazz" developed a following among serious musicians, and he became a regular at various New York jazz spots.
In this portrait, de Kooning, a skilled draftsman who had drawn obsessively ever since childhood, manipulated the graphite with stump and erasure to subvert form and outline. Jagged, repeated pencil lines substitute for hands, suggesting the motion of the fingers shaping a quick succession of notes. Other diagonals envelope the head and body, evoking the sensation of rhythm and sound. ..."

I have posted about this Swedish femme fatale/terrible before. But then it was about her singing and acting skills(!?). Now I'd like to present you to some of her other skills(!?). The Crime In Your Coffee points to this entry (careful! NSFW!!) in UNRAT Deluxe. Well...

From generation to generation

"Taken over a period of approximately twenty years, the photographs in this exhibition are part of a series entitled, Triptychs. These twenty-seven photographs, presented in groups of three, depict working class families living in a six-block area of Buffalo, New York's Lower West Side. The families were photographed during the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. These images speak about the importance of family, continuity, and the impact of the passage of time. Without sentimentality or romanticizing, the portraits capture the dignity of these individuals and tell their stories of humor, warmth, vitality, and mortality. ..."

However, if you think that all rums are created equal, well, you just can't possibly imagine how much smoother and mellower a 7-year old HC (flash-site) is until you try it for yourself. ..."

"Re-Penetrator is a pornographic spoof of H.P Lovecraft’s 80’s horror flick Re-Animator. Re-Penetrator is the story of a stripper (Joanna Angel), who after being dead for twenty years, is resurrected back to life by a perverted mad scientist (Dr. Breast). Dr. Breast vaginally injects the long-dead, but exquisitely preserved, exotic dancer with special serum so the re-penetrated corpse will return from the VIP room in hell and crave nothing but sex. After he injects her with a gooey green potion the stripper awakens with an insatiable craving for balls, and she fucks the mad scientist from the gurney to the grave. ..."

First: I didn't know Mr. Lovecraft was directing horror flicks in the 80's. He must have risen from his grave. Ok.. Maybe it was H. P. Lovecraft after all...
Second: Watch the trailor for Re-Penetrator and read more about this coming movie classic. And it's NSFW. Thank god it's Friday! (via Unscathed Corpse)

Disco music - what were we thinking?

"One of the more entertaining elements of a newly opened disco exhibition is a kiosk of recordings that highlight the genre at its worst. Listening to Ethel Merman, Frank Sinatra, and the Muppets try their hand at a style of music that originated in hip New York gay and minority nightclubs makes the backlash against disco a bit more understandable. ..."

"Does this painting look familiar? The chances that you have seen it before are pretty high. The chances you also know that its name is "Tina" are a bit lower. The chances that you know anything about the artist who created it are close to zero.
I am talking about J.H. Lynch, an artist that left nothing but his paintings and his signature. I am not talking about someone who lived 400 years ago or some local hobby artisan. No, I am talking about a persona whose works were sold worldwide in amounts of hundred thousands if not even millions. And even though this happened only some 30 years ago there are almost no traces left that could answer questions like: Who is J.H. Lynch? Is he still alive? Is he a woman? Where did he come from? Are there more paintings? ..."

Shout At The Devil

"In the beginning
Good always overpowered the evils
Of all man's sins...But in time
The nations grew weak
And our cities fell to slums
While evil stood strong
In the dusts of hell
Lurked the blackest of hates
For he whom they feared
Awaited them... Now many many lifetimes later
Lay destroyed, beaten, beaten down,
Only the corpses of rebels
Ashes of dreams
And blood stained streets
It has been written
"Those who have the youth
Have the future"
So come now, children of the beast
be strong"

Dan DeCarlo

"How about you driving a while, Millie?!"

"If you've ever taken a look at Betty or Veronica in an Archie comic, it's almost certain that you've enjoyed the art of Dan DeCarlo. Dan is recognized as the single most defining artist to work on the Archie books, with over 4 decades of drawing the Riverdale gang under his belt between the 60s and 2000. While working for the company, he created Josie and the Pussycats and Sabrina The Teenage Witch. (Dan's wife Josie was the inspiration for the Pussycats lead). Sadly Dan died shortly after a failed lawsuit that went all the way to the supreme court over unpaid royalties from the horrible Pussycats movie from 2001. ..."

10 versions of Henry Mancini's 'Moon River'

Pastor McPurvis is one romantic one! He sais (in his most sensous kind-of-whispering style of voice): "This week we are doing something a little different in honor of Valentine's Day. For your listening pleasure we offer you ten different versions of that most romantic of songs, Henry Mancini's 'Moon River'. We've tried to include a little something for everyone in the mix. For the purists we begin with Mancini's arrangement from the 'Breakfast at Tiffanys' soundtrack. From there the styles break open wide and include Moog synths, college choirs, lounge organs, blazing brass sections, and even a country flavored version. We've even whipped up a spiffy CD insert to bring the collection together. So fire up that CD burner, dim the lights, wrap yourself up with the one you love, and bathe in the varied stylings of 'Moon Rivers'. Happy Valentine's Day and as always, Enjoy!"

The WILHELM Scream

"A series of short painful screams performed by an actor were recorded in 1951 for the Warner Brother's film "Distant Drums." They were used for a scene where a man is bitten and dragged underwater by an alligator. The recording was archived into the studio's sound effects library -- and it was used in many of their films since. "Star Wars" Sound Designer Ben Burtt tracked down the scream recording - which he named "Wilhelm" from a character who let out the same scream in "Charge at Feather River (1953)." Ben has adopted the scream as sort of a personal sound signature, and has worked it into as many films as he can."

"OK, so it's a strange hobby; aren't they all strange to someone who's not into it? Don't ask when or how or why I started collecting records by female impersonators. Maybe it was when a DJ pal gave me a promotional copy of a Charles Pierce LP so many moons ago, or maybe it had something to do with my brief and inglorious stint on the stage back in the late 70's. But whatever the reason, the more I looked, the more I found. I marveled as time went on at just how many female impersonators had made commercial recordings. When setting up this website, I wondered if there were anything unique I could give to the cyberworld, and the one thing I haven't seen is a discography of Drag Queens. So I thought, why not? ..."

Breaking News!

"This photo was probably taken in the early 80's...before THOR released Unchained. Notice Cherry Bomb/Pantera reaching for that nipple!"

Exciting news from Smog Veil: "THOR has just signed a major multi-media contract with the fast-rising label, Smog Veil Records (SV Records)
A new album, Thor Against The World has already been recorded, and should be unleashed very soon. This is Rock the way Rock SHOULD be tapping into and channeling the very heart & soul of the genre! It's extremely catchy and addictive, with a timeless quality that will make it just as fresh decades from now as it will be on its release.
A video has already been shot for the song: Glimmer (which will include scenes from the upcoming movie, Murder in the Presidio which will air on the USA Network on April 29, and features Thor)."

As exciting as these news really are I think the website is just as exciting! Look at this Early flyer for one of Thor's "Muscle Rock" shows. It rocks! And what about this very early shot of THOR and his band having fun with ballons! And here is THOR recording the new album (I don't know... it doesn't do it to me...)
So whatever you think of THOR musically take at least a tour through the Photo Archives. You won't be disappointed. There is something for everyone! I promise. (thanks to Up-Tight)

Fly South

I'm likewisely enthralled by "Fly South", from Enon's new album. (Much to my surprise I should add...)

Yma Sumac

"A young Yma Sumac --not in the High Andes...
but in the Malibu mountains! This is the very early 50's."

This is the first ever truly authorized web site for Miss Yma Sumac. She is very much a part of the site, and thrilled to welcome you aboard!

Also: Read more about Yma at SunVirgin.com's biography page.

And most important: Read the essay "Yma Sumac...the Voice of the Incas" once published in Fate 1951...
...made available by the great Java's Bachelor Pad.

Update: Somebody mailed me and asked me if I could post an mp3 with Miss Sumac. Ok... This is no mp3 blog. But here is a YouSendIt-File with Yma Sumac doing 'Babalu'. That's all I can offer for the time being. Enjoy!
Update II: Yma Sumac Polyphonic Ringtone (Malambo No. 1)
