Just some bits and bobs
As far as I know,, Jacula are the first horror themed band ever, correct me if I'm wrong. They later turned into Antonius Rex. I can never get enough pipe organ and this just hits the spot.
The first and last minutes of this song are to DIE for, but the middle is just pretty nice. Associated with Steve Hillage of Gong. In recent times the frontman Mont Campbell of Egg does actually look like a wizard but he is an exceptionally handsome man((I seem to be going crazy for handsome guys in bands)).
I'd been hearing the name The Residents several times but it came to the amount of times where you start thinking "If I keep hearing about them in the circles that I'm poking around in, I'd better check them out" and then I found this massive article on Not Available and then I listened to this video and being quite astounded then bought the album. Then I found out there had already a couple of mentions of them on this very blog,, I dont know how I missed them because I watch/listen every single video link here.
Could someone give me pointers on buying their albums? Are the live albums worthwhile? Are there dips in quality? Because I have my hands full with ultra prolific bands like Acid Mothers Temple and Robert Pollard/Guided by Voices,, a discography the size of Sun Ra and Tangerine Dream is extremely scary and a bit offputting.
This is the radio show that I believe started the trend of horror hosts and the format of 50s horror comics and so on. Here are over 100 episodes, I only listened to the first one, but later episodes have movie stars doing voices.

This is for Sean,, there is lots of other good stuff he does on ComicArtFans.
And if you are still hungry for Graham Ingels, here is one of his best stories which is featured in that book I recommended...
I just found out about The Goode Family today and I ended up watching all 13 episodes on Youtube and I really liked it,, but how well exposed did this get? Does the average cartoon watcher in America know about it? Everyone seems to think it is cancelled out of existence, but ABC let go of it and they are simply moving elsewhere. How is anyone offended by this show? It makes fun of these people, but is loving towards them too. It reminds me of recent discussions here.
I'm still working on art,, but I'm starting to think of motivational signs I can put up on my walls to work harder.
