Lady Luna Sees All!

By dawn the dogs had been called off. I came out of the brush covered in mud. It had rained all night and all I had done was run and crawl through godforsaken sewage until the only scent the dogs could get was that of the surrounding mud and filth. There was no point in the deputies dragging the tired K-9's through any more torture than they had already endured. Standing on a bluff overlooking the highway, smog rising across the river over the low-lying buildings of the big city. If I could get… Continue

All Media Is Fiction

Posted on July 1, 2009 at 5:42pm 5 Comments

All media is fiction. Everything you see, hear and read, in print and on any screen anywhere is a fabrication that has been altered, edited, censored, and pointed towards a preconceived agenda. It is not true, it is not real, is not the whole story by any stretch of the imagination—which it is, but it’s not really anyone’s imagination either.



It is a corporate product; a mind game conceived of by faceless committees meant to dupe anyone within view or earshot into complacent… Continue

Turned Off

Posted on July 1, 2009 at 5:39pm 2 Comments

I live entirely isolated from society, in exile from NYC in the suburbs of New Jersey. My life is solely devoted to my cats, pulp fiction, film noir and pre-code aesthetics. I firmly believe that the most beautiful women are in b/w and I utterly loathe contemporary Hollywood, advertising and the media in general. My work is ultraviolent and fueled by contempt.

Apostles With Dirty Faces

In the beginning, my Old Man’s operation was strictly penny-ante. Most times his boys didn’t risk showing their faces for fear of getting in too deep.

His boys did such a good job building the organization that he was able to divide the eastside from the west.

On the eastside lived the swells while the west was left to lowlifes and dropouts. The two sides were… Continue

It was a cold and rainy night, as the staccato of the windshield wipers kept the obscured vision on the signpost up ahead from my consciousness. At my sight grew closer the sign read: Welcome to the GAOH, Johnny Noir!! We hope you have decadent and nihilistic fun here!!

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
