Halloween Playlist: Punk Edition

You know, I thought about waiting for tomorrow on this, but then I thought about it, and I said, “Hey Hunter, wouldn’t people like to wake up with some horror and Halloween themed punk rock to kickstart October?” And then I said to myself, “You know what, Hunter? I think you’re right! Now, let’s drink some orange juice out of a Frankenstein mug.”

So that’s where we are now, me with a Frankenstein mug, a Spotify playlist with a bunch of punk and psychobilly, and an embed code. So, let’s get to this! I hope you enjoy and have a great October’s Eve!

Music Video of the Day: The Creepshow – “Zombies Ate Her Brain”

Oh yes! Off of one of my favorite psychobilly albums, this is the first single from The Creepshow’s 2006 debut Sell Your Soul. It’s obviously super low budget, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

With a great way to celebrate October’s Eve, I hope you enjoy “Zombies Ate Her Brain.”

If you want to hear the rest of this great album, make sure to give it a purchase. It’s only $8.00 right now.

Halloween How-To: Vampire Pumpkins

Vampire PumpkinOne of the things I really wanted to try this season were the Vampire pumpkins that I’ve been seeing on occasion randomly over the past years. The simple trick that I’ve been seeing is, take a set of easily found vampire teeth, cut a hole in a tiny pumpkin, and put colored tipped pins for the eyes.

Unfortunately, when I went to buy the supplies, a total of like $5 or less to make several of them, I noticed that the vampire teeth I purchased for 97 cents were impossible to close to insert into the pumpkin, so in the philosophy of Ted Mosby, I MAGGIE’d (Make Adjustments, Go Get It, Energize!).

Music Video of the Day: Kitty in a Casket – “Bride of the Monster”

Today’s entry in the Music video of the Day (Halloween Season) is “Bride of the Monster” by Australian psychobilly act Kitty in a Casket. I enjoy myself a taste of psychobilly every once in a while, but when it comes to the fall months, I’m all about it. I recently discovered this band when I was perusing the web for Hellcat and the Prowl, The Horrorpops, and The Creepshow, and I’d say this band is right up you’re alley if you enjoy those bands.

With all that said, I hope you enjoy “Bride of the Monster” from Kitty in a Casket’s 2009 release Horror Express. It’s a perfect addition to your Halloween playlist. Speaking of Halloween playlists, expect some of those coming soon.

Jason Voorhees Halloween Candy Bowl

Jason Candy
Here is a Jason Voorhees candy bowl. Hastings is selling a handful of movie inspired candy carriers for the Halloween season. They’re a little on the expensive side at $39.99, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t kind of want this little Voorhees.

Check out their site for more carriers like Freddy Krueger, Yoda, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader.

Music Video of the Day: Danzig – “Mother” + The Greatest Time of Year

“It’s the greatest time of a year.” This is a phrase that is oft used to described the winter months leading into the holiday of Christmas. This phrase is commonly misleading in this context, as it should be used to the time period of the middle of September leading up until the final day of October. October 31st. Halloween. This time that we are currently in is truly the greatest time of year, and we here (me here?) at PMA are definitely going to be celebrating this. Expect posts in Re: horror movies, horror punk, horrorcore, Halloween home tips and pictures that celebrate the season. So, let’s kick this off with one of the fathers of Horror Punk with his video for “Mother.” Glenn Danzig is a polarizing figure, but what’s a better time to honor his legacy than this season?

Enjoy “Mother” from  1998’s Danzig.

Favorite Songs: Coheed and Cambria

coheed_and_cambria_the_second_stage_turbine_blade_2005_retail_cd-frontIf you are a regular reader of this here blog, you should know two or three things about me:

1. I don’t post enough.

2. I’m a comic book reader.

3. I LOVE music.

This is a post about the third item there. One of my favorite bands of all time is Coheed and Cambria. Their music speaks to me in a way that none other ever has, but it goes on beyond that. Coheed’s music has been a defining point in my life with my wife. We’ve been to several shows together, we’ve had amazing experiences in our journeys to see their shows, and different albums of their’s usually mark specific times in our life together. This band is more than just a band to me, but that doesn’t mask the cold, hard fact that they have some really cool freaking songs.

Listed below are several of my favorites from each of their albums, including lead singer Claudio Sanchez’s side project, The Prize Fighter Inferno.
