I Played Castlevania on Nintendo 64

I haven’t been chipping away at much larger content, but I did do a little streaming on my channel. I played Castlevania Legacy of Darkness on Nintendo 64.

I kinda feel like I’m waiting for the next project to inspired me lately. There’s some great music and stuff coming out, but I haven’t really been struck by anything to really create lately. Maybe I’m having some writer’s block. Who knows?

Goth 101 – Bauhaus

This is the video I’ve been working on for quite a while and I’m very happy that it is done! I’ve always wanted to do a video like this which is more like a video version of the GothCast Podcast. I hope you enjoy it.

Here’s some of my sources or places I did some portion of research (some of these websites are kinda dead):
The book Dark Entries: Bauhaus and Beyond by Ian Shirley
The book Who Killed Mr. Moonlight by David J https://www.discogs.com/artist/85897-Bauhaus http://www.bauhausgigguide.info/index.php https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauhaus_(band)

The Legacy of Anne Rice, Tim Burton & Goofy Cyberpunk

It’s the end of the month, you know what that means. You get to see me talk to a camera about thoughts I had over the last calendar month. This time, IN THE SNOW!

Dr.Sanders – Carlot Salesman [Music Video]

This video is sort of strange because we recorded this live with us in that room so what you see in the video is actually what we’re playing, but we also did a few overdubs afterward. It gives it a unique sound and it’s cool to be able use the footage of us really performing along with all of the other random stuff throughout. This song was on our album Patch Overlap, but this single version is completely unique. It has been added as a bonus track to Patch Overlap on Bandcamp, but will be included on another release coming out very soon. As always I hope you enjoy!

Also if you purchased Patch Overlap previously on Bandcamp you can re-download the album and get this version of the track free. It has been added a bonus track that is exclusive to the digital version. It’s not on the cassette version as it was recorded way after those were made. Maybe if there’s ever a second printing it will be included.

Phantoms: The Rise of Deathrock from the LA Punk Scene Book Review

It’s a book, it has words. In this video I talk about those words with my own words. I think there’s a word for that…a review? Probably not.

Here’s where the book exists:

Podcast Episode 62 – Christian Death – Valor Kand Part 2

MP3 DOWNLOAD [Right-Click and Save As]

This reunion episode brings back Robbie Gore as the original GothCast duo break down some lesser talked about albums from the Valor Kand era of Christian Death. It’s one of the more interesting eras of the group as two competing versions of the band were releasing material sometimes within the same year. They cover the albums Insanus, Ultio, Proditio, Misericordiaque (1990), Sexy Death God (1994), Prophecies (1996), and well…one more from 1998. This one gets a little strange, but that’s nothing new to this podcast.

Podcast Episode 61 – Samhain

MP3 DOWNLOAD [Right-Click and Save As]

It’s time to rock with death again as Dr.Sanders and Cameron tackle Danzig’s project after the Misfits and before his solo band Danzig. A much beloved, but sometimes overlooked era with tons of reverb and songs that sometimes sound like they could be the theme to an 80’s slasher movie. You don’t have to wait for “November” to come this year because this episode is “Final-ly Descending” to the podcast world. They take a look at Initium (1984), Unholy Passion (1985), Samhain III: November-Coming-Fire (1986), and Final Descent (1990).

Unboxing Vinyl from Cleopatra Records

Today on GothCast, a strange turn of events leads the ever curious Dr.Sanders down a winding and seemingly endless trail of self-discovery which ultimately results in the unboxing of vinyl records that had arrived from an establishment known as Cleopatra Records from a distance incalculable by modern humans. Was this fate? A series of random events?? An utterly insurmountable and deviously difficult task that will leave our hero with a lifetime of mental and physical scars!?? Well…I’m pretty sure it’s at least not that last one.
