Wind of the Black Mountains

[#379]

  • CD cover and...?

    [Note: Wind of the Black Mountains was/is a great black metal band that had various releases on Moribund Records. Why this picture is circulated advertising the band is a funny mystery. 40 oz. malt liquor and all. The founder and main member of WotBM unfortunately died due to drugs.]

    [Below: I first heard WotBM on this seven inch record called 'Force Fed into Blasphemy'.]

    [Below: Back of seven inch. It includes another romantic picture! 'Tchort sucking blood from Mistress' little cunt'. And who said there isn't love in black metal! Ha!]

  • But Wind of the Black Mountains is not the only band guilty of putting romantic images of love and... well, whatever. Demoniac also released these images:

  • And then there is always this black metal stud...


    Mother Teresa of Calcutta

    [#380]

  • Comic

    [Note: This comic should not be sold to minors or anyone under the age of 21 years of age without proper ID. Warning: This literature contains violent depictions of Christian propaganda and dogma.
    With that said, could you imagine catching your child, say, underneath the bed, reading this? HA!]


    Besalt

    [#381]

  • Hellstorm shirt

    The Thing

    [#382]

  • Laser Discs/Blu-Ray/Book/soundtrack

    [Note: John Carpenter's 1982 remake of The Thing. One of the greatest horror films of all time. The special effects were mind-boggling, better than a lot of stuff today even. The atmosphere, plot and acting was superb. The original black and white (above) is very different than the remake, staying closer to the short story it was based on, by John Campbell, ominously called 'Who Goes There?']

    [Above: Most Japanese media have these paper bands on the covers for advertising purposes. A disc is not considered complete without them.]

    [Above: Back of inner paper sheet. John Carpenter looks like a 1970s porn star here! Japanese Special Edition Laser Disc.]

    [Above: This is a large booklet, no pictures, just text. I'm guessing it is an interview with Carpenter. Japanese Special Edition Laser Disc.]

    [Above: Inner laser disc ring. Japanese Special Edition Laser Disc.]

    [Above: 'Who Goes There?' short story. Circa 1938. First published in pulp fiction magazine 'Astounding Science Fiction'.]

    [Above & below: The soundtrack to this movie masterpiece has a musical masterpiece to match.
    Ennio Morricone did some of the most ominous and memorable music of his long career.]

    [Below: The DVD version of the film, superior over the blu-ray version, in terms of special features. The blu-ray has commentary as its only feature, while the DVD version has deleted scenes and a ton of other features. A story all too common with blu-ray, these releases are often lacking the special features of the DVD versions, and many times the quality of the transfer is low. Go figure.]

    [Below: The blu-ray edition of The Thing.]

    [Below: Blu-ray disc]

    [Below: The HD-DVD version. Tons of special features unlike the blue-ray.]

    [Below: HD-DVD disc]

    [Below: The Thing, circa 2011. A prequel of the 1982 classic of the same name. Here the story of the Norwegian camp is told, where 'The Thing' first surfaces. The first half of this film is surprisingly good, then it quickly gets all too typical. Too bad, all of us fans were excited for this one, but it is predictable. There was however mention of a Russian camp at the end of the film. Perhaps a 'Things' sequel?!]

    [Below: The movie comes with an insert for a game of some sort, but I haven't tried it...]

    [Below: The Thing the video game, circa 2002. This could have been very cool. Instead, it was dismally bad.]

    [Below: Back of game case.]

    'Zines: Eclipse (Czech)/Kogaionon (Romania)/Eternal Fire (France)

    [#383]

  • 'Zine selection

    [Note: ...There's nothing like the old, warm feel of primitive paper 'zines...]


    Propaganda

    [#384]

  • Comic

    [Note: Ahh, I can hear the sad violins playing... Can you believe this crap? They gotta beat it into our heads while we're young so we'll be good slaves to them as adults.]


    Latex/Funeral Rape

    [#385]

  • Hammerfuck/A Chainsaw in the Cunt CD covers

    [Note: Wow, what a romantic cover!]

    [Above: Geez, what a whore! She's probably just fucking that chainsaw to rebel against her parents though.]


    Vault of Horror/Tales from the Crypt

    [#386]

  • Comics/DVDs

    [Note: Horror reprints from the 1950's that eventually spawned the series.]

    [another Vault of Horror, unrelated, this time inspired by Edgar Allen Poe]
