Every year since 1984, I have listened to The Residents “Mark of the Mole”. This year mark a milestone of 30 years, so I listened in costume with the Residents Skull from 1976 and played a drum used on “Eskimo” album. You can call me a nerd now.
‘Tis an honor to have music that you wrote end up at #23 (!) on the list of “100 Greatest Horror Soundtracks of all time“. Nestled right between “Alien” and “Rosemary’s Baby”. Right where it belongs!
I’ve already donated to this project because Michael’s former band Jane Jane Pollock was a masterpiece on all levels. This film looks pretty cool in that it has all the elements of a great Lynch film AND the venue for it will be hotel rooms across the country.
Anyone up for hearing a good reading of Poe produced by yours truly?
I don’t know if you remember or not, but last year, my friend Richard and I put out an audio book of Edgar Allan Poe. This is the perfect gift for Halloween! The audio book is available through Audible, but if you buy the Kindle edition on amazon for $4.32, you can get the audio version for an additional $1.99. What a bargain! Print version available too!
Today’s noble cause is a film called “Dream Throat”. Can’t wait until 2016 to see Twin Peaks? Donate a few dollars here and see it sooner. Michael Arcos is an artist that I’m very fond of. His previous project was a great band called Jane Jane Pollock. You will recognize that band name because they are frequently on my “best of the year” lists. He will probably make the list again this year because of his massively great cassette called “Blackberry Bones”. He’s not asking a ton of money, so maybe you can spare something?
Today’s noble cause is the horror film called “Dead Body”. Written and Produced by Ramon Isao who also co-wrote and starred in “Junk” AND co-wrote “Zombies of Mass Destruction”. Both of which I did sound design for. Watch “Zombies of Mass Destruction” on Netflix streaming. Watch “Junk” on Hulu.
Seems like October is fund raising month on so many level. I don’t want to be left out of the game, so I will suggest a few donation worthy projects over the next few days.
First one up, I’ve told you about before. I’ve done the sound design for ALL of Kevin’s films. This one will be cool too. They are ALL cool.
