such a fine example of vintage japanese poster art! Would love this for the walls of our studio!

“Carnival of Souls” is a magical movie. It’s both dreamy and nightmarish, and could have been absolutely forgotten if it weren’t for the tireless fans who keep promoting the film for the work of art it is. It also goes to show that it doesn’t take millions of dollars to get a good film done – all it takes is some unique ideas and dedicated actors to bring the vision to life.

Contemporary Hollywood should take a note.

Listen to some of the fantastic score by Gene Moore, that features the fantastic use of the pipe organ for a hyper-atmospheric experience. The pipe organ is coming back into play in a more recent film, “Only God Forgives” , which features music by the great Cliff Martinez. {click here for a preview of the score}

So, listen up friends and followers!

SCENTS MEMORY

When Clark Gable, my mothers childhood idol died in 1961 I saw my mother cry for the first time…and I didn’t understand why. A year later I understood.

(little me)

Early on the Sunday Morning of August 5 1962 I was sitting at the breakfast table eating a bowl of Trix.  With Motion Picture magazine open before me, I was reading all about the adventures of Liz and Dick in Rome. That summer I was so engrossed in the incredible drama and getting a real education at twelve all about morals and Hollywood, and how mean the ladies on my block could be about a divorcee. Liz and my Mother were the most famous divorced women that anyone on my block knew of. Between them they kept the hens of Orchid Street clucking and pecking for hours.  Suddenly in a crackly transistor radio second  Shelly Fabares’ Johnny Angel was cut off by the announcer. “Actress Marilyn Monroe was…

The Jetsons Turn 50!!!

Happy Anniversary to The Jestsons, who turn 50 today! Everybody’s favorite family from the future was first aired on this day. Set 100 years in the future, in the year 2062, the show imaginatively explored life in the future (very appropriate, as the show was the first color TV series on ABC). Can you believe it?


EEP OPP ORK AH-AH! (that means I love you!)

Commercial Break: Cape Fear (1991) and (1962)

We have to take a moment to remember 1991’s Cape Fear.  Frankly, one of our FAVOURITE performances by Robert De Niro.  Not to mention our beloved Juliette Louis as sultry young daughter,  Jessica Lange and Nick Nolte make up a disturbed family struggling through some tangled up legal woe’s… to say the least.   We admire Martin Scorsese and have to applaud this throwback to pulpy, sexy, retro flicks.

Not to be forgotten, originally done in 1962 and in black and white, every bit of this flick is as exciting as the 1991 version.   Starring the legend Gregory Peck,  each scene is more suspenseful than the last.  We would highly recommend getting your hands on this one, and have a popcorn night snuggled on a sofa!

And a strange twist would have it, or we guess inevitable claims of fame, both actresses who played the young daughter have/had musical careers!  Juliette Lewis tours as Juliette and the Licks, and Lori Martin had a record deal!  Who’s better, you decide!


Have you seen either Cape Fears?? And what do you think of Lori vs. The Licks?

E.O.F : Play that funky music white girl!

Carnival of Souls features a heavy handed soundtrack of Organ music.  Infact, ONLY organ music can be heard through this entire film.

This clip is a heightened moment of the film, where all of the inner demons come flowing out of the main character Mary, played by Candace Hilligoss.   We hear the beauty of the classic organ, and get a glimpsein the pure madness it may take to truly master such an instrument.


Do you appreciate the organ? Or does it drive you mad??
