On the current edition of The Squick or Squee Cast I interview E.M. Beastly, a super-prolific writer of monster erotica. He’s written two large collections which you can find here and here. Very good on our dark human passions for monsters…and the monsters’adark monster passion for us!

It is with great pleasure that I can announce a new appearance on The Moustachioed Podcastio with Daniel Segura as we spent an intense time discussing Luis Valdez’s 1981 Zoot Suit, a musical that takes off from real historical events in wartime Los Angeles (the Sleepy Lagoon Murder and the Zoot Suit riots) and becomes something truly extraordinary and complex. You can get a sense of how complex by listening to Daniel and me wrestle with it for nearly 100 minutes. It stars, among others, the awe-inspiring Edward James Olmos as “El Pachuco,” who’s either protagonist Henry Reyna’s projected alter ego, an allegorical representation of Chicano consciousness, or perhaps an Aztec deity. Aren’t movies great?
You can access the episode via Daniel’s links page or just load up “Moustachioed Podcastio” in your podcast app of choice.
Our custom episode art is by Lucy Fidelis, a long-time contributor here at Erotic Mad Science, showing El Pachuco projecting in front of a 21-st century Los Angeles. You can find out more about Lucy by visiting her website.
It is with great pleasure that I can announce that my second appearance on Eddie the Axe’s Bloodybits Horror Show where Eddie, Tim Yobo, and I get to discuss David Cronenberg’s early body-horror entry Rabid. We had a lot of fun with this one (it’s always fun with those guys), discussing what body horror is, the continuing relevance of Sigmund Freud in interpreting horror, and how Marilyn Chambers turned out to be a far better actor than most people would have expected. You can listen to or find a place to download the entire episode on this page. Enjoy (but do pray that it doesn’t happen to you).
It is a privilege and a pleasure to announce another guest podcast appearance, this time on Eddie “the Axe” Jefferson’s new audio venture The Bloodybits Horror Show, on which we discuss David Cronenberg’s 1983 masterpiece Videodrome. Ever been scared at the thought at what’s really being beamed onto your screen? You should be. I conjecture at some length about a what I think is the underlying psychological mechansim that makes movies like Videodrome (and so much of the rest of Cronenberg’s oeuvre) so compelling. Eddie compellingly narrates gory detail after gory detail.

It’s always fun to be on the Grindbin Podcast, and this week’s episode has me on with Grindbin regulars Mike and Bobby and fellow guest (and fellow comics writer) Michael J. Tanner to discuss the great big blacksploitation picture Truck Turner, with great big Isaac Hayes, a very menacing Yaphet Kotto, and Nichelle Nichols in a role that will really surprise all you Star Trek fans. Faustus says give it a listen! You can play or download the episode here or just search for Grindbin on your podcast app of choice.
I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been in another episode of the Grindbin, this time spending nearly three hours with Mike and the boys attempting to make sense of the 1988 Hindi film Aakhri Adaalat, which we all very much enjoyed. The podcast is now available for you listen to via your podcast app of choice, or by listening or downloading here.
Lucy Fidelis modeled this “cover” to the Brenda-Pamela series after an old pulp novel cover. Works for me! I have made this image available in full resolution. Click to load or right-click to download.
