Hollywood VFX designer Ash Thorp recently released a series of giclee prints titled ‘The Epoch.’ There’s four in the series with the possibility of more to follow.
The prints are being released by Thorp in conjunction with Evil Tender Dot Com. My role in the release is to handle the production, shipping, and customer support. ‘The Epoch‘ is an incredible set of work that I have written about on ETDC HEREas well as an interview you can reach HERE.
The Ash Thorp store was developed by Adam Brewer of Brewer Logic.
I wrote a book. ‘Youth in the City: Various Small Fictions‘ is a collection of short stories and vignettes written during my years in San Francisco. The book is 60+ or 80+ pages depending on format, digital or paper. The original working papers are close to 1,000. Did quite a bit of editing.
Currently it’s available on Amazon and I’m sure a few other places. Pick it up in paperback HERE.
The crux —
“‘Youth in the City’ finds a series of wandering narrators, lost and searching. Part imagined future, these series of vignettes imagine the world as a caustic enemy with the only freedoms being sex, alcohol, and the quest for God.’
The excerpt —
“Jesus was a horrific villain. To corral and gather a crowded mass, this is the true body of evil. The only real good is in solitude, separate mannerisms.
We, mankind, are the ones that named a group of planets a universe, but earth is unto itself. Free and floating, no God above and not God below, but God within. Each of us, our own personal Lord and Savior.”
In early 2015 Mondo continued their incredible list of film soundtracks with composer Jay Chattaway’s score for the 1990 film ‘Maniac Cop 2.’
My task was to interview Chattaway for the liner notes about the film and his relationship with the film’s writer / director William Lustig.
Chattaway is a Hollywood veteran whose work is most recognized in the television universe of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise, but I’m still a sucker for his work in the 1985 film adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘Silver Bullet.’
