Robot ramblings

If there’s one thing the vast majority of metalheads share a common distrust for, besides authority, it’s technology. Warnings against human integration with machines are so common in metal that I often don’t notice them. This morning, though, while listening to Black Sabbath’s Computer God, from their 1992 masterpiece Dehumanizer, the lyrics were so relevant to what’s going on now that I was taken aback. … Continue reading Robot ramblings

Coming soon

I’m compiling and re-editing an anthology of all of my horror/dark/twisted stories. I had this idea ten years ago, and I’m finally getting around to EXECUTING it. Read that last sentence in either Vincent Price’s voice, or the Crypt Keeper’s–either works. Meanwhile, you can read some of them here before they disappear. An additional volume will feature non-dark fantasy and sci-fi fare. No title for … Continue reading Coming soon

You’re already intimately familiar with Freddy, Norman Bates, Dracula, Damien and the rest of those guys. There’s really nothing left to say about them, at this point. Yawn, right? … Continue reading Five underrated horror gems you might have missed

Desensitized

I often wonder, when someone speaks very casually about a deer they shot and gutted, or some farm animal they castrated, or anything of that nature, How can they do that? When I was a kid, I had a pet mouse named Charlie who escaped and started fucking shit up all over the house. My parents were like “screw this” and set traps, which I … Continue reading Desensitized

The summer of 1989

After binge-watching Cobra Kai, I found myself in the mood to watch the original Karate Kid film. I scratched that itch, and wasn’t disappointed. I mean, it’s a classic for a reason. Everyone loves a good underdog story. The film more than holds up. Anyway, being a nostalgic person, I found myself taking a stroll down movie memory lane, which led me to the summer … Continue reading The summer of 1989

Some of my favorite horror movies

Psycho: Not much that I can say that hasn’t already been said. Horror Hotel: Now this is a truly scary film.  The atmosphere is just perfect.  Thick fog rolling through an old cemetery at night, dank, cobweb-covered cellars, sinister-looking witches in black robes sacrificing virgins, a creepy old New England town; this one’s got it all. Halloween III: Season of the Witch: I don’t care … Continue reading Some of my favorite horror movies
