Download the Classic 1988 Chamber of Horrors Tape

Download Like Dinosaur Dracula (who I have to give credit for releasing it waaay before me), I too had this tape and listened to it quite a bit as a kid. I actually still have the original tape from that time, but 3-4 years ago, as I was archiving old videos, CDs, and tapes, I […]

Thoughts on the Upcoming Album from The Dahmers: In the Dead of Night

Despite deeply loving a lot of music regardless of genre and having a collection of music that’s both more eclectic and eccentric than anyone I’ve ever met, I rarely write about it here on HL.

The limited edition two-disc affair, which quickly sold out, served to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary, and boy does […]

Dead Air — The Last Bit of Noise on a Dying Medium

Technology continues to progress exponentially, with technologies becoming dated quicker than ever before. Fax machines abandoned in way of email. Payphones and landlines abandoned in way of mobile phones. Phonebooks abandoned in way of Google search. Blockbuster storefronts and cable abandoned in way of Netflix. CDs abandoned in way of iPods. Film cameras abandoned in […]
