I had heard nothing but […]

The Robert Englund V.I.P. Experience: Wizard World Ohio

Nov 25, 2014 No Comments

This past Halloween, in lieu of tormenting the kids who were trick-or-treating in my neighborhood, I decided to take a three to four-hour road trip to Columbus, OH. Why would I forgo the opportunity to pass out candy dressed up as an axe murderer, you ask? One name: Robert Englund. When I found out that […]

Interview with BLOOD BATH Playwright-Actress Rhea Amos

Nov 24, 2013 No Comments

I may be a history geek, but that doesn’t mean I want to hang out with Calvin Coolidge.  I found this out the hard way, when a Coolidge impersonator dropped by our ninth grade auditorium.  Admittedly, the bar had been set pretty high after a visit from a Frederick Douglass impersonator a few years before.  […]

Thea Lewis: Ghost Guru of Vermont’s Queen City Ghostwalk

Oct 22, 2013 No Comments

As soon as the Pilgrims got off that boat in 1620, they were telling ghost stories. Ghost stories were in their bloodstream, and their Calvinist religion, with its heavy emphasis on sin and fate, made them predisposed to a certain type of fatalism. What they found in the New World only exacerbated this worldview. Massachusetts […]

Legs McNeil, the co-founder of the revolutionary manifesto known simply as Punk Magazine, once stated that when rock and roll is done right, it is truly the Devil’s music. If this is the case, then the Devil has a helluva good taste in tunes. After accepting this theological pronouncement, the question then becomes: “who are […]

Let us go then, all of us, to that mansion isolated on the island. Now that we are gathered and the will has been read, we must find out who’s responsible for the corpse in the pantry, for one of us is the killer. Sounds like a familiar set-up, no? This is the plot to […]

Full Of Hell: Rudiments of Mutilation Album Review

May 19, 2013 No Comments

The Jaws of Life—the metaphor, not the hydraulic rescue tool—seem hell-bent on grinding us into dust. The best extreme metal acts recognize this and accept it as a fact of existence. Some choose to sing of surmounting this great impediment, whilst others seek to recreate it and expand upon the vast ugliness of life’s chaos. […]

What’s brain taste like? Few have a palate refined enough to know how to fully appreciate and describe the bouquet of its rich flavor, but luckily for RavMon, while I was at the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, NC, I ran into one of the more sophisticated zombies wandering around out there and got the […]
