From Neil Gaiman's blog.  
Here is a cover of one the best songs by Queen, using old computers.

Hell's Ground - Horror movie from Pakistan

Heather and I watched Hell's Ground last night.  It is a zombie/slasher/gore movie from 2007, made in Pakistan with lots of English dialog.  The effects are good, old school gore.  The music is fun.  Basically the plot is a group of 20 somethings go on a roadtrip and take a short cut and end up in an area infested with zombies and have to face a serial killer in a burqa!  I would say it is as good as most Fulci films (although "Zombie" is much better).

Clowns vs cops - amazing frozen video

On Boing Boing today they have a link to an amazing youtube video of a frozen moment of time in a fire fight between a gang of clowns and cops.  Very impressive.

Record Store Day info

There will be tons of great used LPs out for Record Store Day. All of these boxes and piles of records will be processed today. The store will be overflowing with good vinyl. Lots of classic rock, experimental noise, punk rock and a 500 original soul 45s from the 1960's and 70's.

We are also hosting an instore by the band, Radio Ballads who describe themselves as "the music is slow, instrumental, and sounds like soundtrack music for dreams or imaginary films." I'll have some giveaways and cookies. The band will play from 4pm to 4:30pm
