Brigitte Calls Me Baby

My good friend (and unbelievable artist) Jeffrey Equality Brooks tipped me off to these guys one day last week and upon my first listen to Brigitte Calls Me Baby's 2023 debut EP This House is Made of Corners, I was instantly smitten. Tell me you love The Smiths and The Veils without telling me you in words. This entire EP is fantastic. You can order the record from the group's Bandcamp HERE


After watching Alice Maio Mackay's Bad Girl Boogey a few weeks back, I'll pretty much follow wherever they go next. Where they go next is T-Blockers. Here's the trailer (that I only skimmed for a few seconds):

There is a visceral element to Mackay's work that feels born of a considerably different era. To say that BGB captivated me with its Video Nasty gore is an understatement, and it looks like those ideas have been pushed even more to the forefront of this new film.

Focus on what you don't know about the world around you, particularly how your opposition changes itself. I'm reading this as pertaining to recent woes I've had with the website for The Horror Vision. I won't go into detail, but it's Wordpress, it's down, and I want to replace it. For that, however, I have a lot of work ahead of me and my attention has been increasingly drawn toward what I don't know about the world of the internet, which definitely feels more and more like an opposing force in so many way.
