As we draw closer to Halloween, I’ve found myself compelled to share with you, my lovely followers, some of the classics of the season that you may have missed.
The video above is of the classic made-for-TV BBC movie GhostWatch. GhostWatch was one of the earlier mockumentary horror films and was presented, much like the classic radio drama War of the Worlds, as a live and real event (despite being filmed a week prior to its release).
The movie is amazing. It ranks among the best made-for-tv horror films as well as the best horror mockumentaries all around. It was also pretty controversial as it was sited as the source for a lot of childhood trauma.
I won’t give away anything about Pipes, just keep your eyes peeled.
I realize many of you are recent followers (meaning within the past two years) and this means you may have missed what this tumblr was originally about.
It was mostly about posting a good fifty fifty mix of campy horror crap and my music, which I released under the terrible band-name that I’ve kept for some stupid reason, Swimmingpool The Band. As writer’s block started to pummel me (mixed with other personal matters) I became less prolific.
Only recently have I started to fool around with music again and (with the help of a few friends too) I’ve managed to come up with some new work.
Don’t worry, I won’t be posting only music, rather, I’m giving you a heads up. A heads up so that you’ll both give my music a shot, and not get too ticked off when you see me, oh, let’s say, reblogging the same post five or six times in a week.
The video above is a little teaser for some of the new music I’ve been working on. I’ve gone between straight forward pop-songs (guitars guitar bass drums guitar vocals ect) to ambient to outright noise. I’m not sure what direction I’ll be going in now, but it’s, like always, an adventure.
Anyway, give it a shot. If you like it, let me know, if you don’t, ignore it or unfollow me if it somehow offends you.
Today’s been the first day in the past two years that I’ve spend the entire day focusing on writing new music.
To put in perspective just how long it’s been, I didn’t have Barry with me the last time I recorded a new song. Fortunately, he’s been by my side, keeping me company while I toiled away on the guitar, violin and keyboard.
I can see why so many poets liked cats.
