Rant: Monthly Dee-Lights (3/22)

Debrastated

Aw, looks like the first season of Adult Swim’s delightfully deranged “short-form” sitcom Three Busy Debras was only six episodes long! To ease the pain of parting a little, the finale did feature a scene-stealing cameo by Sunita Mani, and … Continue reading

Darling Of The Deathlings

A recommendation from a friend has led to me becoming hooked on a surprisingly warm and high-spirited cadaver-centric webseries called Ask A Mortician, hosted by the insanely adorable Caitlin Doughty, who is nobly striving to reclaim the word “morbid” and … Continue reading

Sarandorsement

A former shipmate of mine, up-and-coming artist Sara Le Roy, recently opened a gallery in Brighton to showcase her remarkable anaglyph 3D paintings, and she’s already attracted an A-list customer… the actual actress Susan Sarandon, who is in town to … Continue reading

Ilsana Auction

My long-cherished dream of establishing a museum dedicated to Natasa Ristic came one step closer to fruition this week, with the announcement that the peeps behind Australian-retro-spy-spoof Danger 5 would be auctioning off as many props, masks, costumes, and models … Continue reading

Hurrah! Jennifer Finch’s Kickstarter campaign to fund the preservation of her epic/historic photographic archive via digital scanning has crossed the metaphorical finish line with 284 backers, and a purse of $12,463 (well over the $9,100 she was hoping for). I … Continue reading

Flashes Of Finch [Updated!!!]

Jennifer Finch is a multi-talented woman… not only is she an “axe”-wielding-singer-songwriter (with bands such as L7, Other Star People, and The Shocker), she’s also been an “amateur” shutter-bug since the age of 13, taking thousands and thousands of photographs … Continue reading
