Same Old Story

Extremely busy right now. More so than usual this time of year. Have to keep priorities in order, and I'm sure you all understand that. I'll do my best to post some stuff soon.

In other news, I'm close to becoming a member of an "exclusive" society/group whose logo consists of a hidden animal on the dollar bill. Ooohh... ahhhh.

Weekends To Die For

Travel Channel is celebrating Halloween every weekend again this year. They have fairly solid Halloween themed programming given the obvious sightings of reruns and the over-airing of Ghost Adventures. It all started last night and caught me off guard. Click here for the mini-site Travel Channel has set up.

This would be incredible to see flying around the neighborhood on October evenings.

Toy Story of Terror!

ABC will be premiering the Halloween special of Toy Story on October 16. The kid in me is ecstatic for this. Here's the trailer:



I'm sure you can tell where the image was found by that obnoxious watermark.

You're Not Perfect

This was a real bit from a Courage The Cowardly Dog episode that aired on Cartoon Network. You know, the network for kids to watch.

Presence

"Presence" from the Indrid Cold: Within project.

A spacey, ambient piece. Simple, but effective at creating an atmospheric presence.

Fall Project

Since I don't participate in the lovely art of prop making, I often lack the sense of pride in creating something specifically for the Halloween season outside of designing this website. To combat this, I decided to give something else a shot this year.

I plan on creating music/soundscapes that capture the essence of my feelings towards Halloween. Granted, I won't be putting all my efforts and talents into it due to lack of time with school and work and everything else going on in my life. The sounds should be interesting, nonetheless.

With that said, I plan on calling this year's project "Indrid Cold: Within." I will post a new song/ambiance/soundscape/whatever it is periodically throughout the following two months which will culminate in a full collection of work available as a complete download after Halloween.

Monsters on Your Walls

Woot has some cool vintage movie posters available right now. Plenty of horror themed movies in the bunch. Better hurry, though, as they are limited in supply and typically go pretty fast.

Meet The Creeper

Rob Zombie's Hellbilly Deluxe was a giant influence on my love for Halloween as a youngster. At the ripe age of 8, I had been exposed to this cd and fell in love with the artwork and the music. While my tastes in music have no doubt changed, I still throw on the Hellbilly Deluxe classics around this time of year.

The artwork in the booklet is still some of my favorite Halloween-ish visuals to this day. In case you aren't familiar with these, I'll show you why they evoke those spooky autumn emotions so easily:







Please excuse the quality as these were taken from my phone.

Tears of Blood

A little later than I had initially announced, but the downloads page has been updated with the Ghost Cam .psd file. Have fun with it.

Saturday, August 10, 2013

IT LIVES

The new site is live. The media section now consists of any video, audio, wallpapers, and games I post here. The downloads section will be home to various treats I will offer up for you all. I will have the "ghost cam" .psd file (click here if you don't know what I'm talking about.) up by the end of the day to kick things off.

If the site is giving you any problems such as things not looking right or not working well, please leave a comment and let me know so I can address the issue.

'Tis The Season

In my book, it's Halloween season. Mid August is close enough for me. As I've said before I think considering the start of the season earlier is beneficial because it allows me to enjoy the spirit of Halloween for a longer period of time rather than waiting for October or mid to late September.

That being said, the new Necropolis site will be launched this Saturday. Hope to stay busy around these parts and post some interesting things in the coming weeks.

Spooky

The weather here has been unbelievable this past week. Very autumn-ish. Got me in the mood to log in to blogger and post something.

Hello

Not dead, just sleeping. Work on the new theme is going great. Should be ready for August. Been really busy and I apologize for not updating at all (as if anyone really cares). I hope to see you around soon.

Dreamland

Had a dream last night. An October night and the streets were flooded with people anticipating some sort of Halloween attraction that I was not 'in-the-know' about. The atmosphere, though, was perfect. Dark, cool night with jack-o-lanterns lining the streets and a sincere feeling of eeriness filling the air. All dreams must come to an end, however, and I found myself lying in my bed on March 11. So far away from October.

Oh, well. Here's a picture.

Moving Right Along

Spent the majority of last night and most of today working on the new layout. I really got into it this morning and churned out, in my opinion, the best look Necropolis has ever had - given Blogger's limitations.
Not only did I come up with a design, but I went ahead and began coding the site to see how well it would work out. It turns out that I'm about 80% done with the site already. Just a few more minor details and I'll be done.

So here's the question: should I launch the new site soon (within the next month or two) or wait until Halloween season (August/September) to unveil it?


Hmmm... he looks a bit malevolent.

Teaser

Work on the new Necropolis design has officially begun.

Green Goblin

Ultra-creepy, full-sized bust you can display in your home. If you have $600 to spend on something like this, that is. Despite the outrageous price it's still a very cool prop.
Info and image can be found here.

Aaahh!!!

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters was one of my favorite shows growing up. I remember watching the premier episode  close to Halloween night in 1994 and thinking "this is creepy and I LOVE IT!"

Emergence

I've finally decided to come out from my end-of-the-world bunker. Things seem to be running like normal. While I was stored away eating my stockpiled military rations (MREs), I had a little bit of time to plan out the future of the site. The redesigning phase will begin within a couple of months. Other than that and other things in the mix, I have nothing else to post about right now. That will change, though.
