Halloween with the New Addams Family [1977] Review [Video]

0

The 70’s were a good time for wood paneling and shag carpeting, but not for The Addams Family. The original cast of the 60’s show reuniting, what could possibly go wrong?

This special is honestly very frustrating, there’s actually a documentary about Carolyn Jones that briefly mentions the production of this special and apparently the cast had a great time catching up.

Goth Thrifting in California (Plus Vinyl Restoration) [Video]

0

I took a trip to California and did some thrifting. There were plenty of thrift stores to choose from and the temperature was way too hot for me. I definitely prefer an overcast rainy day. This video was more of an experiment to see if people wanted to see similar episodes. It seems to have gone over well so I guess I’ll make more.

On a technical note, editing this video was a nightmare. It took way longer than expected, but that’s probably because I’m such a perfectionist.

Type O Negative – Bloody Kisses Review [Video]

What a great album! I have wanted to cover a Type O Negative album for a looonnngg time, but it is very difficult to objectively review albums from your favorite band. I actually learned a few new things while doing research. One thing I din’t mention in this video is the Bloody Kisses demos. The demo for We Hate Everyone is AMAZING! I actually like it more than the album version.

History of Release of the Bats [Video]

0

This is still one of my favorite videos. I’ll be honest and say that I’m not really that fond of travelling anywhere, but it was really great to talk with everyone involved. I have a lot of memories attached to Release the Bats (some good and some bad), and I’m glad I got a chance to try and document what it was really like.

This actually took a lot of time to edit together. I filmed the interview footage in May of 2018 and I didn’t release the video until October 2018. It’s always difficult to do these types of videos because I try to tell the history of the subject while also giving my impressions of social event. It’s not quite as straightforward as an album or book review.

I lived in Orange County for a number of years and you would always see those tiny flyers or posts online about Release the Bats. Your friend would call you up and ask if we were all going and how could you possibly say no? It’s weird that we can’t go to Bats anymore, but I’m glad that as of writing this post, Dave and Jenn are organizing other great events.
