Although this movie has been out for awhile I thought I’d give it review anyway. Don’t worry, I’ll keep it brief. Obviously someone saw The Hills Have Eyes and figured “Gee, I can make a worse movie than this” and followed that thought all the way to completion. You have a group of folks that make a wrong turn, clever, I know, and end up getting hunted by the big bad mountain men of west Virginia, that just so happen to be cannibals, and guess what, yep, they’re hungry! I didn’t care for any of the characters and found myself rooting for the cannibals the entire time. Eliza Dushku and Emmanuelle Chriqui are the only good things about this movie, in large due to the fact that they both display themselves very nicely, not to be a pig, but that’s the truth. If you’re in the mood for a no-brainer, hicksville cannibal jamboree then go ahead, if not continue browsing.

Rising from the ashes of Arson, key members Keith and Kyle Hasselbrink, and Keith Dilliplane (Drums/Bass/Guitar respectively) formed the musical onslaught known as sydbarret., joined by Kristian Hasselbrink and John Zipf, a culmination of unique influences and individuals that can only be heard to be understood. The band delivers an intense live show that is energetic and fun, there is not a scrap of silence from the first struck chord to the last beat of the brass, the band uses samples and noise to fill the void seamlessly from song to song. They have a new EP coming out soon, entitled “The Swimmer” which is the bands best stuff to date, and can be found on both of AR’s compilation CD’s The Comp and The Comp 2 (which are available now) to find out more about sydbarret visit them here: http://www.myspace.com/sydbarr3t

Yes, you read that right, FREE! Go visit: http://www.deathwishinc.com/news/ to download a FREE music sampler from Deathwish/Malfunction, I've been listening to it today and most of it kicks ass. Trap Them, Cold World, and United Nations stand out but I'm sure you'll find something you like on that. Consider this a review, go get that shit, it's good.
My friend Chris Burns did an interview with Doomriders awhile back and while catching up on the the latest Deathwish Inc. news I found it online here: http://www.punknews.org/article/30784 it will also be available in print in the latest issue of Define The Meaning (check them out here: http://definethemeaning.com) so go read that shizzle cause Chris really loves the music and knows what he's talking about.

I had always wanted to pick up a Dean Koontz book but never knew where to begin, I came across False Memory in a stack of used books for sale for 50 cents and the decision was already made for me. When I started reading the book I wasn’t too thrilled and it took me over 30 pages before I got into it, I had almost put it down with little hope of picking it back up. But after that initial bunch of pages I was hooked and I started to really care about the characters involved and the story they were caught up in. It was clearly derivative of works like “The Manchurian Candidate” and used a bit too liberally nods to “The Lord of The Rings”, the latter which I could of done without. False Memory did what many derivative works fail to do however, and that is stand on it own, which it did. False Memory’s strength lies in its great characters, the terrible villain(s) and well-crafted story that made almost every page a page-turner. Koontz has definitely got me interested in checking out more of his work, if anyone knows of other works of his I might like please let me know. If you couldn’t tell, I recommend False Memory.

Great news everyone! The Comp 2 is out! You can find it at many of your favorite places to download music (iTunes, Amazon, Napster, etc.), this is strictly a digital release, so get out there and download a few tracks. I whipped up a short video ad for it so please check it out and post it wherever you can. Word of mouth from friends and fans is the only way the Apparatus Revolution will get out there, give these bands a chance, they're worth it!

Paint and color pencil on canvas. I thought I would just paint whatever I had lying around the house, typical, skulls and candles.
