    SAVINI AND ME: Part Eight, Shooting Arrows with Osiris

    When writing a biography of someone, I find it important to get to know them as a person, not just the star they are. Hanging out with the person I’m working with is just as vital as the stories they tell me.  The reason being that celebrities tend to give canned responses to questions, as they have been asked the same ones over and over again their entire career. To really get to know someone, you have to watch them in their normal life, see how they act and be a part of what they do day-to-day.  With Tom, I had the chance to have many meals with him, see him in his neighborhood and how he is at conventions, but I needed more. I needed to see what Tom does in his spare time. Knowing Tom loves target practice, I suggested we go to the firing range to shoot arrows, and he agreed.

    Q&A: Grade School Metal Band and “AMERICA’S GOT TALENT” darlings, MURP

    Aaralyn and Izzy O’Neil are collectively known as MURP, a brother-sister Metal tinted band from Boston, Mass who started their wild act in 2010 after vocalist Aaralyn—who was three at the time—discovered she could scream like the Devil. Spurred on by their parents, they competed on TV reality show AMERICA’S GOT TALENT earlier this year performing their mind-bending screamo gem “Zombie Skin,” confusing Howard Stern, impressing Howie Mandel and blowing away a shocked audience.  Though the kids made it to the finals, they were eventually eliminated, but this did little to defeat them. They went back to Boston and made a four-track EP called BROKEN CRAYONS, which is now available.

    Maybe you’re planning a vacation this year. Maybe you’re going to London.

    “THE INVOKING” (aka “SADER RIDGE”; Movie Review)

    THE INVOKING (formerly SADER RIDGE) is a small film, but it’s a good film. A very, very good film. Unlike some contemporary indie horror cinema, writer/director Jeremy Berg isn’t concerned with bashing his audience over the noggin with stimulation or easy smut. Rather he hooks you, roasts you slowly and then, when you least expect it, sticks a very big fork in you. In other words, this is thoughtful, restrained and artfully rendered stuff that doesn’t treat its audience like, y’know, blubbering baboons.
