Isolation: Day 205


I'd never head of Night Club before when this track from their forthcoming album Die Die Lullaby showed up in my youtube feed. The aesthetic is obviously in my wheel house, so it caught my eye. After watching the video, I can say I dig the visuals but am unconvinced by the music. Still, might not be my thing exactly, but I was intrigued enough to google them, where I found Night Club did the music for a show I have never seen but K has been wanting to show me since we met, Moonbeam City. This put the band in my, "need to know more" category. In the meantime, if you're so inclined, pre-orders for the new album can be had HERE

Love the close-up of the zombie hand clap, and the appropriation of the Brady Bunch squares.

31 Days of Horror:

Saturday night, K and I hit the Beyondfest David Lynch triple feature at the Mission Tiki Drive-in Movie Theatre. Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, and Lost Highway, however, we only stayed for the first two, the second of which ended about 12:30 AM and precipitated us returning to our hotel - a freakish experience in COVID times, let me tell you - in time to catch the Hal Holbrook-starring segment "The Crate", from 1982's Creepshow on some cable network's month of Halloween flix. 

1) The Wolf Man
2) From Beyond/Monsterland: Port Fourchon, Louisiana
3) Mulholland Drive/Creepshow (1982): The Crate
4) Waxwork


X - Los Angeles
Darkness Brings the Cold - Devil Swank, Vol. 1
Misfits - Collection II
Metallica - Master of Puppets
Styx - Pieces of Eight
The Runaways - Queens of Noise
Kevin Ayers - The Confessions of Dr. Dream and Other Stories 
Rupert Lally - Where the Dark Speaks


This could be a reference to the weird cycle I find myself in with writing at the moment - a cycle preventing me from doing much of it - or to the film I'm headed out to see tonight at Beyondfest's Mission Tiki Drive-In screening of Benson and Moorhead's Synchronic, which I'm thinking is a continuation of the world they began in Resolution and The Endless, and involved loops, reiterations, and cosmic comeuppance. Maybe it's both.
