The new year found me feeling a bit restless and sort of *stagnant*, but any one of you out there who has any sort of creative impulse (read: pretty much ALL of you) knows it can be a daunting prospect to *actually do art*. So I’ve dipped my wee toes into the watercolor pool again and I’m reasonably pleased with the result. I’ve been on a Crispin Glover kick recently (having exhausted the Helmut Berger kick and taken a break from the Udo Kier kick), and I liked his Richard III look from “What Is It?” Of course my art sk00l professors would be aghast, but I hope some of you dig this piece.
But enough about me–other people are busy sharing excellent info, art and music elsewhere in the web. Let’s discuss!
Probably my fave Tumblr of the moment is Greggory’s Shock Theatre. It’s run by a person who is my shock/horror/exploitation sensei–this gent introduced me to the joys of lucha libre, encouraged me to seek out horror comix, and helped expand my horizons in terms of foreign genre cinema. [Extra bonus points for attribution & context on the majority of his posts!]
The latest addition to the League of Tana Tea Drinkers is the thoroughly entertaining and edifying Too Much Horror Fiction, Will Errickson’s tribute to horror paperbacks. There’s something here that will please every fan of spookiness, from amazingly lurid paperback cover art to in-depth reviews of off-beat titles. Highly recommended stuff!
