New work by artist KORIN FAUGHT will be exhibited in the "GIANTS AMONG US" group show at the COREY HELFORD GALLERY on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th. (see Korin's work in the evite). We hope to see you there!
COREY HELFORD GALLERY-CIRCA
"Giants Among Us" opens this Saturday night at CHG Circa (8530A Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA). You'll see today's Giant depicted as fantasy, as emotion, even as edible. Our artists' personal interpretations of this theme range everywhere from Eric Joyner's fun, epic battle between donut and robot helicopters in "Colossus", to realist painter Sarah Folkman's serene "Fundament". See attached evite for more info and Korin Faught's new work for the exhibit. Previews can be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org."

DANNY was initiated into the PRIMUS 'sucks' tradition by the crowd while performing at THE CONCORD MUSIC HALL in Chicago. A nice tribute indeed by Primus (and D.C.) fans!

Special guests for the SEPTEMBER 15 MONDAY NIGHT JAMMMZ include MATT HANKLE on drums and ED ROTH on keys. Where, you ask, can I hear these jams? The answer is, of course... (all together) THE BAKED POTATO in STUDIO CITY, CALIFORNIA. Local talent and others passing through are invited to bring an instrument and ask about joining in during the 2nd set. Great live music on a Monday night.

A reminder that DANNY will be performing with PRIMUS in Chicago at the Concord Music Hall and RIOT FEST. I must say that I rather enjoyed hearing him go through some of the set-list at the newly sound-proofed loft the other night. Cramming just a bit before catching his flight.

It's been nearly a year in the making, but I am quite pleased to announce the much-anticipated release of the eighth installment of the anthology series entitled "DARKLORE." As with the previous seven issues by Dailygrail Publishing, DARKLORE VOLUME 8 is a treasury of hidden history, fringe science, esoterica, ufology, and general Forteana. With articles running the gamut from post-death consciousness to pre-deluge extraterrestrial colonists, there is something in the latest journal for all those who are interested in the "strange dimensions veiled by consensus reality." And as with the other seven volumes, DARKLORE 8 is available in both an affordable soft cover and limited edition hardcover version.
Honored to once again be a contributing author, this time around I (Blair MacKenzie Blake) wrote about "The Shaver Mystery" craze of the mid-1940s. First appearing in the pulp sci-fi magazine "Amazing Stories" (March, 1945), the Shaver Mystery quickly became a publishing sensation that many researchers today recognize to be the forerunner of more modern accounts involving "X-File" type phenomena. This includes an otherworldly intelligence that both created and controls humankind from their subterranean realm, as recounted by an ex-factory worker-turned Depression-era drifter named Richard Shaver. In a series of bizarre ramblings often involving seemingly techo-erotic obsessions, Shaver claimed to have witnessed first hand alien machinery of unfathomable complexity hidden deep inside a system of caverns where they continue to be focused on an unsuspecting surface world by a race of malevolent entities. Was Shaver truly the victim of degenerate beings operating alien technology abandoned millennia ago by the Elder gods, or was he in reality a paranoid schizophrenic confined to a mental hospital where he was subjected to crude electroshock therapy? Or, will time reveal him to be a futant with extraordinary powers of imagination, who left behind a dire warning to future man about the potential danger of certain advanced technological achievements?
Both versions of DARKLORE VOLUME 8 are now available at www.amazon.com

Just kidding!.. Even so, the Raiders fan in me thought it best to show you a photo that I took at Danny's house last January. Shown are D.C. and his K.C. buddies (prematurely) celebrating what appeared to be a Chiefs victory against the Colts in the AFC Wildcard game. However, as 'Luck' would have it - with Indy down by 28 points! - the Colts defeated the Chiefs 45-44 in a stunning comeback, thus ending any hopes of K.C. moving on (choke) in the post season. I didn't want to rub this in right before the new season starts, but felt I owed it to them.

As finishing touches are put to the Tool loft, DANNY gets 2 days to learn the PRIMUS tour set list. Piece of cake. I'm guessing that it might take some drummers 3 days to get everything just right, but who has that kind of time? See Danny with PRIMUS in CHICAGO and DENVER at the RIOT FEST.

If you decide to go out for Korean barbecue, as Danny and a few of us did the other night, make sure that you don't forget your wallet, or you'll have to wash LOTS of dishes.
