Blood & Gourd

Blood & Gourd: The Interview

Back in 2016, I wrote some words about Blood & Gourd 1 and 2, the gory pumpkin-patch set indie Halloween comic about an evil pumpkin conglomerate and a giant pumpkin monster wrecking shit one blazing orange October day.

We discussed this film on our Halloween 2019 podcast episode,… Read More ›

Playlist: Acid Witch Halloween Stomp

The very first part of Halloween prep I do every year, without question, is getting together the Playlist. It really helps get me in the spirit of the season. I know some people have a master Halloween playlist they continually add to and have blasting in their ears the entire season. And I have one… Read More ›

The Mystrys

Talking with Ziggy Zapata of The Mystrys

I touched on this excellent slab of Aussie garage punk on my Halloween Nuggets playlist a few years ago (that comp does not appear to be on Spotify anymore, which renders the playlist useless—but you should totally buy the 3-disc set. It’s well worth it!), but it’s time I really… Read More ›
