this poster fucking rules.
"horror hotel" fucking rules. the remastered version looks amazing.
good flick. lOTS of fucking FOG and scary people just standing ther motionless in the streets of whitewood.
waiting for the hour of thirteen,
I remember the mushroom people one kinda really confusinf me as a kid. Another one that flipped me out was about some guy that wore a santa suit and chopped people up.
Vanishing Point freaked me out too, but in a good way. I saw it when I was like 10 and the aked hipppie chick on the minibike blew my mind.
check out 'attack of the mushroom people' if you can find it. it's bad dubbed japanese, but creepier than hell.
i finally saw texas chainsaw massacre (never saw it for some reason) on ifc tv, but it the dvd director's commentary with hooper and gunner hanson and the cinematographer guy. it was pretty funny commentary, but somehow it lost a lot of it's impact.
I have a weird Cobb 'art portfolio' of enviro stuff..theres a cool one where dolphins laff as
the nukes go off thet are safe in the ocean while man fries...was Horror Hotel the movie where the retard killer would bury people out back with bags over their heads to make sausage///or maybe that was Motel Hell.....
oh, by the way, this was an ad for the movie 'horror hotel'. the advert itself rips off another image done by ron cobb for famous monsters. he did a buttload of monster covers for the mag. he also did a load of record covers (z-grade, but with great illustrations) and he also was arguably the very first 'underground cartoonist'. his comix ran in the berkeley barb (i believe) for years before zap hit the stands. even r. crumb credits him as a big inspiration. later, he did a number of comix under the title 'slow death.' great stuff. he also did that old 'earthday'environmental logo (sorta looks like an omicron, an oblong zero with a horizontal line throught the middle.) but now, he does matt work for hollywood. he's famous in the sci-fi movie world for his work. litle films, nobody's heard of them, like something called 'bladerunner.' yeah, an underground cartoonist/environmentalist/monster painter revolutionized science fiction movie making.
cool guy. anybody else out there know anything more about him? i contacted him once to do a monster painting for an estrus record, but he hadn't done one in over twenty years, and he was up to his neck in movie projects, so he respectfully declined.
i've never been terribly proud of that dead moon poster. too direct a lift. but i always loved that image (something weird catalog had it, but it was also in psychotronic and, of course, the newspapers from the period). i had to do something overnight and it was halloween and it was dead moon, so i said, what the fuck. still i sorta cringe when i see the poster i did. looks great, but all i see is the shortcomings. that's the heaviest price of lifting images - you gotta live with your lazy action forever...

I recon it7s so...I like sugar in ma coffee and ma biscuits hot!
I prefer to think of myself as vintage ....actually the last year or so I have been getting into like weird dj music and old hillbilly shit and like totally ignoring the whole 'indie' scene...altho I'm slowly getting re-interested. The Label kinda got me sick of it for a while.I was lissening to like 100 demos a week...for years.oi vey.
Actually I think it's good. They make a lot of noise for guitar and drum only.
Very influenced by old blues person Son House.
Rockin' cover of Dylan's "One more cup of coffee" and Dolly Parton's "Jolene". They are worth checkin' out -IN MY OPINION.
Yeah, they liked it I'm told. No reaction on the Bro/Sis angle though.
Did you catch the White Stripes on the Horrible MTV Awards. MTV put a hundred dorks dressed in red & white geek clothes all over the stage and they were doin' hippy dancing. It sucked. Makes me think the idiots in charge at CarsonTV thought the White Stripes weren't enough of an act or something. You couldn't even see them.
...And I believe that poster is also included in your orphaned
box o' posters in S.F.
uh-0h.....correct me if im wrong...while the basic images are swipes by chantry for his poster I do believe he made the collage as we see it here and maybe PM swiped it? or is the whole image from the original movie poster or whatever? and they both had the same idea?
