Just in time.  My psychotic-breakdown-as-entertainment levels were going way down.  This will refill it just fine. More below, but first… LET’S PLUG A SHIRT!!

The Color THING! Yep.  It’s delightful!

Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Awesome 10 Year Anniversary Version, Great Job? premieres Sunday, August 27th at Midnight ET/PT on Adult Swim.

About Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!:
Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! is Adult Swim’s number one gross-out comedy fever dream viewing experience. Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are joined by special guests John C. Reilly, Zach Galifianakis, Weird Al Yankovic, Jeff Goldblum and more for a sketch comedy series that defies explanation, which is why this description is so unhelpful.

‘Insidious 2’ At Comic Con 2013

insdious 2 at san diego comic con secret party
I operate Danger Factory out of a space in downtown San Diego called Industry Showroom. It’s a project I founded and am the managing/operational partner of. The concept was to take under-utilized spaces and transform them into workshop and presentation spaces for art, fashion, and design. This is our 4th year and the ex-bordello, vintage, brick and wood loftspace on 5th Avenue in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego (only 3 blocks from the Convention Center… yeah, Comic Con ground zero) is finally humming with creativity and art.

One of the ways we keep the rents down is by hosting a few events throughout the year. It brings in a chunk or two of cash that pays for improvements. In fact 2013’s event allowed us to rewire the common area of our photo-studio floor, which is incidentally the area primarily shown in the videos below. This year we got to host the Insidious2 installation.

It was incredible. We had a Hollywood special effects crew in here for a whirlwind install that started on Monday and didn’t finalize until an hour before the winners of a FEARnet contest, movie cast members, hollywood mogul-types, and select media people were brought into the haunted environment. It was a huge success. Enjoy the short video (sorry they are set to autoplay, pause one of them). And yeah, that’s my freakin’ loft.

Join FEARnet’s Angie Greenup, Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson as they give us a tour of the Comic-Con exclusive ‘Insidious: Chapter 2’ attraction which gives clues as to what to except for the highly anticipated sequel! ‘Insidious Chapter 2,’ which is once again helmed by James Wan (‘The Conjuring’) opens in theaters September 13th!

I got to have some fun troubleshooting throughout the night. I was called on to regale the attendees with the tales of our actual haunting. Yeah, this old Victorian whorehouse that later became the San Diego Rescue Mission is THOROUGHLY haunted. Everybody had a blast and the creatives that share the space at Industry Showroom got to be super creeped out the week it was up. I mean the sheet-covered creatures were our front lobby area. It was MEGA-WEIRD living here. Yeah, I live in the uppermost section of the loft space. I don’t just love the geek life, I LIVE the geek life.

They packed up the same night and disappeared like an apparition. The only forensic evidence I had left was this lantern. Which actually turned out to be one of the best bits of swag EVER. I have already used it on a camping trip.

YAY Comic Con swag and YAY Insidious2, I can’t wait to be further disturbed.

Yolandi Visser & the indie film madness of Cookie Thumper

Yolandi visser geek chic angel of death

Pre-Apocalyptic music impresarios Die Antwoord have unleashed another short musical (music video just doesn’t do it justice).  Again we see the uber-hot Yolandi Visser push the envelope. In fact she pushes it way off the table, into the next room, out the door and into the street.  This is going to offend many sensitive pansies.  Don’t be one of them.  Enjoy the shock. It is the work of beautiful monsters.

LOVE Yolandi Visser! She has so many looks (most of them sinister) and the art direction Ninja brings to the table is magnificent in its horrific beauty.

Then there is the SUPER sinister look. Still kinda hot though.
