Artist Mention Monday and PROMETHEUS TEASER

Posted in Art, film rant, Laugh, Music., Todays culture with tags , , , on May 1, 2012 by lickthestranger

So after last weeks rant on the so called “Artists of Today” like Lady Gaga, Justin Gopher and Katy Perry “Ellis”, Ive decided to spare you further torment and show you some real ART by REAL artists, yes it seems that the demon gods of pop do not have a firm grasp on my brain therefore making me immune to their trance (music) and garbage (i mean popular) art. The planets must have perfectly aligned once more because It’s time for Artist Mention MONDAY! That’s right, its that day of the week where something I find innovative will find its way onto a post. After all the suggestions from other bloggers and friends as well as some research of my own I have have found this…

"What she had seen" Courtesy of "Regan the imp".


When her brother asked her why she had drawn the tentacles coming out of the eyes she responded “where do you suggest would be a better place to put them?” her brother responded “her eyes are just fine”. Due to the lack of information on her site and respecting her privacy, I can tell you the key interesting points which make this artist “innovative and unique”. Regan is not all over the place with her art, all of her works follow a common theme in which she rarely strays away from. Incorporating “invader Zim”(Yes I know I was pissed when it got cancelled too) like dark humor with dreamy conceptual themes; Regan stays focused she knows what shes good at and does it well. Currently, I’m getting further information on her social networks just in case you want to contact her for her work, for the mean time here is her Deviant art page http://regantheimp.deviantart.com

As always..You know It, I know it, we don’t have to say it, shes great!
I just want to say thank you to all the recommendations and suggestions for A.M.M if you didnt get featured don’t get mad or sad! soon you’ll be able to post your art here (relax..relaaax papa were working on it) for now just keep sending me requests and send me comments. I’ll be sure to get to you. As always remember the themes (anything dark,surreal, tim burton like and tell me why you think your innovative) comment/rate and message me I’ll reply to all and review all.

Now if there was ever anything that brought a chill down my spine its this…. what is it you ask? well its something horror/Sci-fi fans are waiting for with high expectations and anticipation, the prequel to one the most innovative and revolutionizing horror films in Sci-fi history. From the twisted, visionary and brilliant mind of director/writer RIDLEY SCOTT comes the next chapter or should I say the (previous chapter, since its a prequel) in the bone chilling experience that is the alien saga.. he brings you

say it in unison with feeling....FUCK YES!

Check back on Wednesday for my insightful review (i promise I wont rant, I like Alien) on the Alien films and Prometheus. YES its a Prequel so dont get cute with us in denying the fact that it is. But I still want to hear your opinions prior to expressing mine SOO here’s a cool little Poll, so do it

Puscifer Coming to MIAMI and Yes were on college radio.

Posted in Art, Laugh, Music. on April 26, 2012 by lickthestranger

Yes I said it!! PUSCIFER! is coming to miami.
Now ladies and Gentlemen ever so often, when the POP music DEMONS turn a careless eye and all the planets align something extraordinary happens… for one day we are blessed  with something other than MADONNA or the other Madonna (lady GAGA) or Perry Ellis/Katy Ellis whatever that extraterrestrial bubbly demon bitch(yea you know who Im talking about , or that justin Gopher! plays in miami. YES for one day an ACTUAL MUSICIAN is going to set foot on FLORIDIAN SOIL. (EPIC MUSIC PLAYS**)
Well for those of you who dont know who Puscifer is (looks at you with a frown..then smiles) I dont blame you.. Maynard James Keenan from the bands Tool and A Perfect Circle started the band as the only solid member, writer and composer. Maynard claims to that Puscifer allows him to unveil himself musically without bound or restrictions, and considers it his “Creative Subconscious”.
With the release of their Sophomore album “Conditions of my parole”(good, its really really Good) Puscifer has received a solid following in distributed states around the US. Well enough with the real music lesson kiddies, you want to look into it go to WIKI. This album literally has no track skippers, (well except for the song Monsoons, too bright for my taste), its funny because buying this record was a gamble because prior to baby jesus giving me the gift of showing me the light by seeing one their performances I had only heard two songs (potions and the mission) the mission with Resident evils MILLA JOVOVICH! dont believe me look it.. well you get the point.

Heres the song. copy and paste or click.

Now I will share to you the light upon which I was once basked in. A light which made me buy this $9.00 record worth every penny, shit I’d buy it again, I can tell you its like nothing you’ve seen before; take a gamble(like I did). Here is “Telling Ghosts”

Aside from Puscifer I’m sure you’d like to know what the other half of the this title represents, right? well I was informed by WRGP Radiate Fm (Florida international University’s Radio Station) that they wanted to air one of our tracks, I’ll be honest.. he said he wanted us to play a show but declined in this fashion..”for what? to play to an audience that are obviously not even the slightest bit interested in hearing something innovative that doesn’t have DJ or a single straight rhythm with some quirky half naked girl singing the one that got away? thanks but no thanks” So he decides to prove to me the opposite, “there are people that care, Im one of them” he then proceeds to getting the MP3’s to Air.The song was the first song to air at 6pm prime time.
I know.. i know hehe I’m so sly,greedy and devious that I’m sharing the new song with everyone, everyone but you (yes YOU the one currently reading this sentence) well Im keeping you in the loop accordingly and in moderation. I promised him a live acoustic performance of the new song called: “…”  Ah thought Id give you the name?? nope! not yet. Well I’m not that mean so heres a teaser of whats to come for our MUSIC VIDEO.

So what did we gain and what did we learn tonight… A)POP demon Gods grace mercy upon us once every blue moon. B)Puscifer is say it with me “GOOOD REAL Music” C)Someone please tell me what katy ellis perry does? D) INNOVATION is the key to Art.
