Herencia Diabolic: Deeply disturbing Mexican midget clown horror

image
 
Behold the mayhem that is the Mexican killer midget/clown epic Herencia Diabolica. Little “Payasito” gives even the psychotic devil doll that ravaged Karen Black in Trilogy of Terror competition in the creepy department. Seriously demented.

Described succinctly at Raculfright_13’s Blogo Trasho:

Herencia Diabolica is about a killer clown doll scaring the crap out of people and killing them, the movie starts with an old woman dying and holding the clown doll in her arms, it turns out the doll was her best friend and was very close to it. A family member of hers inherits the mansion she lived in and decides to live there with his wife, his wife finds the clown doll named “Payasito” (Spanish word for Little Clown) and decides to keep it for the upcoming baby. Things get weird when the woman finds the doll in the kitchen instead of the nursery, she decides to lock it in a closet so it won’t get out, then later in the night the doll tries to get out and the woman goes downstairs to see what is going on. The woman opens the closet and the little motherfucker gets out and starts chasing her, she runs back to her room but she falls down hard because Payasito was standing on the top of the stairs and made a funny but creepy look at her. She dies at the hospital but the baby survives and the man is now raising his son alone, he’s depressed but he decides to date his ultra sexy secretary (played by Lorena Herrera) to move on. So now he’s married to his secretary and his son is now 6 years old (I think) and he’s super attached to the ugly clown doll, his new mom doesn’t like that he’s very close to the doll and she’s also afraid of it because of a strange erotic nightmare she had involving Payasito and her large (possibly fake) breasts, she tries to get rid of it but the doll comes back no matter what. Payasito gets tired of being thrown away and decides to kill her with a huge knife, she tries to run away but the little motherfucker catches up and kills her.

Watch these clips at your own peril. Should you find yourself afterwards unable to sleep without “Payasito” visiting you in your worst nightmares, just remember: You didn’t have to hit play!
 

 
Even filming a scene like this could ruin you for life. Here “Payasito” fondles the stepmother’s fake tits in a decidedly non-erotic sex dream sequence…

Jumping for the King: Preacher to jump over nine buses, wall of fire

Jumping for the King

image
 
Aaron Ramsey has an unusual hobby. The Augusta, GA-based preacher combines his love of the lord with Evel Knievel-type motorcycle stunts. This weekend, outside of Calvary Baptist church in Middleburg, FL, Ramsey intends to jump his motorcycle over nine buses and power through a wall of fire. From Jacksonville.com:

“Once we become a servant of Jesus, we are obligated to use the talents that we have to share the gospel for Christ,” said Ramsey, 49.

Motorcycle stunts aren’t usually part of preaching the word, admits Calvary’s associate pastor, Tim Pledger. But as when Jesus used a story to explain a greater spiritual truth, Pledger invited Ramsey to give his flock entertainment and a message.

“We use these different earthly secular things to be able to teach greater truth,” Pledger said. “No matter who you are or what your background is, there is a God who loves us. This will relate to people on their level and help them be more willing to accept the Gospel.”

Ramsey is a construction instructor at the Aiken County Career and Technology Center in Warrenville, S.C., not far from Augusta. The motorcycle bug bit in 1974, and he successfully jumped over 16 Pontiacs, “only 120 feet,” he admits.

His life then spiraled into drugs and alcohol, until a turning point came in 1999 when he saw Robbie Knievel, son of Evel, speak after he jumped 30 limousines.

“I can almost quote him, ‘I always like to tell people the devil ain’t done a damn thing for me. Keep believing in Jesus Christ, Las Vegas,’” Ramsey remembered.

Okay, sure… I never really thought of Robbie Knievel as much of a spiritual leader, but hey, whatever works for ya…

Ramsey turns 50 the day after Sunday’s jump. He said he always talks with people after each event, even before being taken away in an ambulance five years ago when he broke his pelvis and ribs.

That’s the (holy) spirit!

Kim Gottlieb-Walker’s iconic photographs of Bob Marley and the golden age of Reggae

image
 
This month, the Proud Gallery in Camden, London, presents Bob Marley and The Golden Age of Reggae, an exhibition of Kim Gottlieb-Walker’s brilliant and evocative photographs of Jamaican artists Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Burning Spear and Lee “Scratch” Perry.

During 1975 and 1976, renowned photo-journalist Kim Gottlieb-Walker and her husband, Head of Publicity at Island Records Jeff Walker, documented what is now widely recognised as the golden age of reggae. Kim took iconic photographs of the artists and producers who would go on to define an era and captivate a generation.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley’s death this May, Proud Galleries has worked with Kim Gottlieb-Walker to create an exhibition of candid and intimate portraits, including never before seen shots, of one of the most exciting moments in recent musical history with a warmth and intimacy born out of the respect between artist and photographer.

During her long career, Kim Gottllieb-Walker’s has documented many of the best known and important cultural figures of the past 5 decades, from Jimi Hendrix through Bob Marley to Clint Eastwood, Woody Allen and John Carpenter. Kim sees herself as “the opposite of a paparazzi”:

“Rather than ‘take’ photos, the process is one of giving. The subject entrusts themselves to me and in return, I respect their privacy and their sensibilities and do my best to capture them at their most beautiful and expressive—a mutual act of giving. On the set, I see myself as a ‘recording angel’ who’s there to document what happens for posterity—a historian more than an artist—capturing the moments worth preserving.”

Bob Marley and The Golden Age of Reggae runs from 7th April - 15th May at the Proud Gallery, London.

Kim Gottllieb-Walker’s photographic book Bob Marley and The Golden Age of Reggae is available from Titan Books here.

Factory foreman Joe doesn’t know how to handle his problematic female co-workers on the job and admits to his boss, Mr. Brooks, that “women scare me.”  Mr. Brooks offers up straight and reasonable advice to Joe about “breakin’ in those girls” such as “They’re not naturally familiar with mechanical principles nor machines,” “Women are awfully jealous with each other,” and “Don’t mix pleasure with business.”

Golden Years: New David Bowie iPhone app coming soon

iPhone Apps

In 2009 to “commemorate”  the 40th anniversary of the release of his Space Oddity album—also known as squeezing another buck out of the back catalog—David Bowie and Virgin/EMI released an iPhone app with the multi-track stems from the title tune. Remixing the song on your iPhone set you back $2 bucks.

On June 6th, there’s going to be another Bowie multi-track iPhone app “celebration,” this one for “Golden Years”. Geekier Bowie fans will be able to manipulate Bowie’s vocals; the backing vocals; the 12-string guitar; guitar; bass; drums; harmonium and percussion (including blocks, congas, claps).

If you’ve heard the 5.1 surround remix of Station to Station, recently released in an obscenely expensive box set, it’s easy to imagine that any Bowie fan could make a better surround mix of “Golden Years” than heard there. (I couldn’t wait to hear it and it’s just terrible, a huge disappointment as I love that album. And it’s not just me, every review I’ve read of it is bad).

Below, Bowie lip-syncs “Golden Years” on Soul Train.

Get your naughty pooch in line with a gun-shaped retractable leash from Art Lebedev Studios. I wonder if the designers got the idea from the infamous National Lampoon cover of a dog with a gun pressed to its head? It sure looks like it. Whatever the case, it’s brilliant!

Povodokus sports a gun-shaped handle, which retracts the leash when you need to control your target dog. It’s a sure shot!

The lead goes out freely as the dog pulls and reels in when you pull the trigger.

If Dustin Hoffman was Scottish

If Dustin Hoffman had been born Scottish, then his recent advert for Sky Atlantic (a satellite channel which broadcasts mainly US programing to the UK), might have sounded something like this, focusing on our love of “stovies” rather than “stories”.

Stovies - a traditional Scottish dish, made from left-over meat, potatoes and dripping. A good recipe for stovies can be found here.

Psychedelic Horseshit: Shitty Sundays

image
 
What a great band name! I was curious as to whether these guys could live up to their moniker, but thankfully their uber-lo-fi psyche-folk sound is every bit as good as their name would suggest. In fact they have a name for their sound too, they have lovingly christened it “shitgaze.” I think that name is a bit misleading though—to me their sound conjures up images of Neil Young smoking crack instead of weed, and burning out from too much Nintendo.

Psychedelic Horseshit is comprised of Matt Whitehurst and Rich Johnston. Coming from the jam band scene of Columbus, Ohio, they have released numerous CD-rs in the past, as well as official releases on the Siltbreeze and Woodsist labels. They’ve just been picked up by the UK’s FatCat (home of Animal Collective) and their next full length, entitled Laced, will be with us on the 16th of May. You can listen to (and pre-order) the album on the Fat Cat website.

In the run up to the album release the band are running a campaign called “Shitty Sundays” where every Sunday, from now til mid-May. they will be giving away a group of tracks as a free download. The first zip file (available here) contains a bizarre “DJ mix” of the album’s title track “Laced” and a couple of shorter psyche-friendly skits. Yes, this is quite odd music, but if you like your country and folk with a twist, or if you just like odd music (period) then this band is definitely worth checking out. Purely in the interest of research, here is some more Psychedelic Horseshit:
 
Psychedelic Horseshit - “Out Of Control No.36”
 

 
Psychedelic Horseshit - “Endless Fascination”
 

 
Psychedelic Horseshit - “Portals”
