How’s everyone holding up through this long hunker down?  We’re doing surprisingly well, actually. Continue reading

Another couple of days, another change in weather…and while the cold, rainy days earlier this week left us with a false hope that people were finally starting to apprehend just how serious a situation we’re in, the warmer, sunnier temperatures today have proven the absolute worst.

It’s been a few days since we spoke, and while we enjoyed a few operas (check the Facebook page) and the nation and globe at large continue to increase their crackdowns on social isolation…Trump and friends are suddenly pushing to get everyone back to work, as in one week from today.  Yay, mass deaths!  Profits over people, every time, that’s the folks WE need in government, right?

And it’s time for yet another one of these Coronavirus specials, the extra time locked down in that Evil Dead cabin in the woods allowing us to converse some more with those wild and crazy demons in the cellar.

And what fun loving guys they are!  Such pleasant chats we have, about all sorts of things: the state of swallowing your soul, what’s the weather like when swallowing your soul, the proper technique and what fashions are like this year in swallowing your soul…aah.  Just like listening to a lot of “extreme” metal, there’s so much variation and different stuff going on!

…well, look, anything’s going to sound intelligent and wide ranging compared to the sheer genius of radio pop and rap…

So here we are again, with another one to get you through the Coronavirus doldrums.  Fear not, for these’ll keep on coming so long as we’re holed up with nothing much better to do…well, you know, after that.

And hey, who knows, we may actually wind up catching up on this stuff at last!

Shall we dance? Continue reading

And as we all hunker down amidst our homemade snow fortresses of bog roll paper (as if the directive was to keep a clean ass rather than hands…says a lot about today’s America right there!), told to stay away from even the few things left to us like parks (what, schools, libraries, parades, concerts, baseball games, theatre and movies weren’t enough?  Damn, those commies really did a good job with their germ warfare experiment gone awry…), there ain’t a hell of a lot to do besides watch the idiot box (hopefully self directed exploration of movies and shows outside the mainstream and from a more worthy past…) and blast some tunes…and catch up on nigh on 100 back episodes of the podcast.

Not good enough for ya?  How about 77 (sometime soon it’ll be 78) Weird Scenes podcasts?  How about a literal decade’s worth of print reviews of music, DVD and Blu, cult BBC audio dramas, Decadent literature and more?

Yeah, there’s lots to dig into right there.  Bon appetit!

And for those of you who are all caught up and chomping at the bit for new material, well, I’ve arranged it with the wife that we can still get out plenty of reviews of new and recent material for your delectation.  So consider this the Coronavirus Special Edition, with more to follow.

And as the title suggests, we’re still wending our way, label by label, through a backlog of materials, some releases dating back to late last year, others still upcoming presently.

Needless to say, these will keep coming until everyone’s more or less up to date going forward…if that ever comes to pass, who knows!

And yet another label or two get a bit of the ol’ catch up, letting you know what you may have missed (or what may be just on the horizon).

Don’t mind the corpsepaint and candleabra.

Shall we? Continue reading

And here’s another batch of indies, this time more focused on doom, stoner,
sludge and related genres to which yours truly has been immersed in of
late…

Fire up a fatty and bring on those huge riffs!
