Execration - Odes Of The Occult (2011)

I could not be happier to be alive in this decade whose reigning sound has been a ritual psychedelic bludgeoning death. I never tire. My friend alien brian turned me onto Execration and for this I am most pleased! <3

Couch Slut - Contempt (2017)

As someone whose early life was defined by late 80's scum and noise, this Couch Slut album is an unholy blessing that I adore beyond the beyond. This is my everything right now. <3 <3 <3

Vincent Price Commercial For Time-Life Books' The Enchanted World (circa 1985)

I was a subscriber to this series and completely obsessed with it. As a kid I was devoted to the total reality of faeries, witches, sorcerers, monsters, ghosts, etc. That is what I spent my time checking out of the library and thinking about all of the time. So naturally this would be what I begged my mom to get me for some birthday or another and she relented. Later as is her wont, she blamed my increasingly poor mental health on my years-long obsession with folklore and the occult and got rid of all of my Time-Life The Enchanted World Books. I wasn't actively involved with D&D or heavy metal at that point, but I still received the ur-80's parental throwing out of malefic influences that many children of that era experienced. I tried to tell her that Time-Life Books would not be the center of a Satanic Conspiracy to warp the minds of children but she would not listen. My mind was warped under its own power. Surrounding myself with horror movies and explorations into tales of magick and sorcery and other realms was a way of making sense of what was already occurring. Something that has held true to this day. I came across this video while reading about the sequel to this series, Mysteries Of The Unknown, which is also of interest, especially in terms of cryptozoology, New Age Stuff, UFO's, etc. I didn't subscribe to that one although I was into that stuff too. My 1980's was a place of ruined castles, haunted mansions, mushroom circles, magickal objects. Thank You Vincent Price! Thank You Time-Life Books! <3 PS - here is the much better article on Mysteries Of The Unknown whereupon my memory of this delightful Vincent Price commercial was rekindled:

Stranger Things Season 2 Trailer

As someone who was 10 years old in 1984, this feels as haunted as that year actually was, and I cannot overstate how important Vincent Price's 'Thriller' monologue was to me then and remains to me now. That said, Dragon's Lair sucked to play in 1984. It ate all of your quarters and would not listen. I can't wait to watch this. <3

Paolo Visile - Day Of The Cobra (Il giorno del cobra) OST (1980)

Paolo Visile's soundtrack to Enzo G. Castellari's 1980 Franco Nero/Sybil Danning Police Vehicle Day Of The Cobra which although I put it in my nxxflxx queue like a decade ago I never received it so although I haven't seen it I LOVE this soundtrack so much despite/because maddening repetition! One day I will catch up with you Cobra! Just not today I guess!
