Ah yes, I see. As you say, creepy. But horribly appropriate, somehow.

My image of Nick Cave is of a thin, elegant dude in a suit, crawling out over the audience, trusting them to hold him up above the crowd, like some huge fucking spider. A truly amazing stage presence.

Leonard Cohen was sacred heart in a song, Nick Cave is black blood, but somehow sides of the same coin, for me.

Probably fucking with my own head, but for the last couple of weeks, while I try to come up with a V-Day tale, I keep listening to these two;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jtpf8N5IDE

And yeah, I know it's not exactly what was meant. But, for some reason, they keep fucking with me more than my usual Killswitch Engage, Lacuna Coil, etc.

In Siblings with benefits the sister was a hopeless alcoholic drug addict from the age of 18 to her early thirties. Now I grew up in a family full of that so although I've never touched anything I had the mentality and results down pat.

I like to listen to things that reflect my writing. If you ever knew someone like that this is heart breaking and I played it on a loop during a couple of chapters.

"Modern Noir Songs" Great dark moody music to write to.

Not sure if you've seen them, but two other good -and older adaptations-(IMO)

The Resurrected featuring Chris Sarandon is The Case of Charles Dexter Ward

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Resurrected

The Curse-don't be scared away that it stars Sheriff Lobo(Claude Atkins) is a very underrated version of the Colour out of Space.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Curse_(1987_film).
I agree that Dagon was well done and setting it in Italy gave it an added feeling of decadence. Another movie one could check out is The Haunted Palace. It was made by Roger Corman and though the title is from an Edgar Allan Poe poem it was actually a version of Charles Dexter Ward starring the great Vincent Price. It was the first Lovecraft adaption that made it to the screen, I believe, and the Necronomicon's debut movie role. It was made on a small budget like all API movies were but it is still pretty good and Vinny is at his scenery chewing best.

On the subject of Lovecraft related movies...anyone remember the Dunwich horror that was done in 1970?

Way off target, more like a Satanic cult, but still fun in its own way.

For people like me who find lyrics distracting, the Cryo Chamber label does a great line in "dark ambient" (think horror movie background soundtrack). All available for free listening before you buy: https://cryochamber.bandcamp.com/

They have a range of artists, but my favourites are the Lovecraft-themed collaborations (Cthulhu, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, Yog-Sothoth). Eight hours of sinister meditation music there :-)

Ooh, haven't heard of that. Will keep an eye out for it.

Oh god, Dean Stockwell's eyebrows.

I used to have that one on DVD, but the disc shattered in the player one day - I guess it was made badly and spinning put too much stress on it? Only time that's ever happened to me.

Side note, one of the things that always tickles me is goth/horror/metal icons doing dorky mundane life stuff. I'm a big Gary Numan fan and a couple of years ago he was blogging about going on a road trip with fighting kids and a flatulent dog. These days one of his daughters sings with him.

Last couple of days it was Rob Zombie celebrating his birthday with vegan cupcakes and a trip to the La Brea Tar Pits with his wife: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bd30nkGlQ_a/

Ah Rob Zombie....and his very sexy wife.

I met him back in 2004. I went to the Black Christmas tour with him and Ozzy in Manchester New Hampshire. He was signing autographs in the lobby and everyone was getting DVD's or posters signed.

He had just released his first comic book The Nail (4 issue series through Dark Horse) and I brought one with me. So he was thrilled I showed up with it, then I told him I owned a comic book store in RI that waqs heavily horror themed. He actually held up the line to chat with me about horror comics for a few minutes then asked for a card and said he'd come by next time he was in the RI/Mass area.

He never did, but oh well.

ON a down note I've seen him in concert maybe 10-12 times going back to White Zombie. In 2014 he came to Lupos and my wife bought tickets as part of our anniversary weekend. he was so stinking drunk he botched the lyrics several times, was staggering around on the stage and the guitarist had to do three solos because he kept wandering back stage to either pee or puke.

Amazing that some of these people never seem to grow up. I don't think I'd spend money again after that.

His wife is still extremely hot though.

Useless trivia, Rob Zombie was actually a porn producer at one point.

Huh, that'd be a disappointment.

Not terribly surprised, considering some of his album artwork... if I recall, he was also on Peewee's Playhouse early in his career.

Yes! From Pee Wee to Porn to heavy metal, comic books and Horror movies....okay, take away Pee wee and all those things are big hobbies of mine with the addition of collecting swords, knives, guns and occult works...somewhere the FBI is profiling me.

One of the darker more depressing songs you'll find. But powerful and well done.

Snuff by Slipknot.

Now that it's finally come out in Australia, I'd add "The Shape of Water" to my list of Lovecraftian films, although it's not really horror - or at least, the horror doesn't come from the monster.
