Podcasts and Panels: SOC On Picking Brains, Horror 101, and Days Of The Dead

It appears that some of you have it in your heads that 'ol SOC was just sitting around doing nothing during my winter sabbatical.  Au contraire, Cellmates, and shame on you!  Have a little faith.  Just because I wasn't in this particular corner of cyberspace doesn't mean that I was any less active in championing the cause of horror.  "What was I up to," you ask?  First and foremost,  I was continuing to trudge through the seemingly interminable Valley of the Shadow of Pre-production that The Son of Celluloid Show has become.  I promise updates soon.  No, really.  I did manage to peek my head out from Celluloid Central here and there to make a public appearance, though.  Some of those are available online for your listening and viewing pleasure.  I recommend checking out these three in particular...

Cash Wampum is a long time friend and supporter of Son of Celluloid.  He also does a killer podcast called Horror 101.  He and his cohorts from the Great White North discuss creepy classics, the nature of being a horror fan, and whatever else strikes their macabre fancies.  There's a horror movie out there that'll scare the shit out of you, and they're gonna help you find it.  Their 30th episode featured a bunch of guest horror freaks discussing the movies that have scared them.  You know I'm not gonna miss a party like that!  I decided to talk about the time Jaws ruined a young Nathan's summer vacation.  Click on that picture right there to be magically transported to that episode.  While you're there, delve into the rest of the episodes.  It's a damn good listen.

Brad Slaton hosts the Picking Brains Podcast.  He's interviewed horror luminaries like Adam Greene, Herschel Gordon Lewis, Jack Ketchum, Lance Henriksen, Michael Rooker, Stuart Gordon, Mick Garris, and damn near everyone involved with Nightbreed.  He's also a sick bastard.  I think that's why we get along.  He's asked me to drop by the show once a month to keep everyone abreast of the goings on in the horror underground.  In my most recent episode we did a recap of Days of the Dead Atlanta, discussed the horror news, and answered some of the most batshit crazy listener mail you've ever heard.  You can bet that any time Brad and I get together, tangents galore will ensue and one or both of us will probably end up saying something mind blowingly offensive.   Same deal here as with Horror 101, click the banner to go to my episode.  Then, since you're now addicted, listen to all of them.

Speaking of Days of the Dead, this year I was truly honored to join the boys from Traumatic Cinematic and East Coast Horror Group for a panel discussing the in and outs of online horror media.  That was one hell of an experience.  I'm far more used to being the one asking the questions.  It was really cool of Adolfo to turn the spotlight on us for a minute.  Thanks to ECHG, you can now relive that momentous occasion when the pillars of the horror community came together... or you can just watch me try to pretend that I'm sober and talk about my dick.  Either way, a good time was had by all.

Thank you for sharing the show and for adding that I'm also a sick bastard. Maybe I can add Uwe Boll to that list of horror luminaries.

It was great to have you on the Horror 101 show. Your segment is my favourite of episode 30.
