For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s UK psychedelic shoegaze outfit Tripwires (not to be confused with Midwestern frat rock band Tripwire) with the short, high octane “Cinnamon.”
I think the video features footage from Alejandro Jordowsky’s Holy Mountain, which includes some very brief nudity.
The auteurs of The Asylum are Roger Cormen is at it again. Are you ready for Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda?
Coming August 2nd to (of course) The SyFy Channel.
At this point I’m thinking I ought to file a trademark for my Slothacconda idea…
For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s another shot of SPC ECO with “Fallen Stars.”

I’ve found and ordered Toilet Monster from a domestic source, and I hope to have a more detailed report if/when it comes in.
Honestly, the only thing I know about Jesus on Heroine is that they have a Facebook page. Here’s the slightly differently spelled “Jesus on Heroin.” It’s probably best I didn’t play this on easter Sunday…
Back in the dim mists of time, they used to demonstrate the speed of atomic chain reactions with arrays of mousetraps. Now someone has done the same experiment, with the added benefit of a high speed camera:
