Fall Freaks - What We're Watching, Reading & Listening to in October
Posted on 02 October 2016
Fall's our favorite season, time to ditch the bar for a late night horror, and skip the hangover to chill out with a good read. There're TONS of good tunes, films & books to dive into, and we've listed just a few to check out & hope you them enjoy too xx
WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO..
Whether you like it heavy, or slow & steady
Rolling Stones - Blood Red Wine (1968)
Unreleased song the Stones recorded in 1968 during the Beggars Banquet sessions. Maybe unfinished, this melancholy number is one of our favorites.
Graveyard - Too Much Is Not Enough (2015)
TRIBULATION - Melancholia (2015)
Saw these Swedish death metal boys at Psycho Las Vegas last month and have had them on heavy rotation since, can't beat seeing them live in show though..
WHAT WE'RE WATCHING..
Usually we don’t watch scary movies…but in October we try to watch as many freaky films as we can handle. So here it goes..
Italian horror cult favorite.The cinematography is actually incredible, filmed inside an old Art Deco Ballet academy. The soundtrack is done by Italian metal band Goblin and is goddamn erie. Witches. Occut. Horror. Soo good.
Cult classic, and the original Vampire flick! "To watch F.W. Murnau's "Nosferatu" (1922) is to seethe vampire movie before it had really seen itself. Here is the story of Dracula before it was buried alive in clichés, jokes, TV skits, cartoons and more than 30 other films. The film is in awe of its material. It seems to really believe in vampires."
She's Beautiful When She's Angry
Definitely not picked for it's association with Fall, and probably the farthest thing from the commercialized Halloween flicks we love so much, but more relevant because of the seemingly recent popularization of feminism in fashion and pop culture, and the impending US election that could result in the first American female president. "She's Angry When She's Mad resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women's movement from 1966 - 1971."
WHAT WE'RE READING...
"So many books, so little time" - Frank Zappa
If Summer coming to an end, or the Black Moon, has you feeling less than grounded, hunt down a copy of the Gracian's Manual. Known as a truth telling manual and the art of worldly wisdom, the passages are perfect for browsing or dabbling in bibliomancy.. It might not give you the answers you want, often it won't, but it'll provide some insight and invoke self reflection. It's a guaranteed nice break from staring at your phone and thinking more about your own life and less about others..
The Inconvenient Indian - A Curious Account of Native People in North American
In light of some major recent events like Standing Rock in the Dakotas and the recently approved Keystone where we have seen revolutionary movements, we highly recommend this book as an important historical account of America's colonial history. "Dr. King’s narrative grows darker as he details the wars, massacres, treaties, removals, re-education and other atrocities and abuses that Indians suffered at the hands of the White “civilizers,” whose record of Barbary eclipsed by far that of the “savages” they set out to tame. He has difficulty finding any humor in the legal mistreatment of Indians, and how these various codifications have been justified."
