We’re Two Weeks Into 2016,And The Insanity Has Already Begun…

Since the theme of this week’s blog entry is going to be pretty dark and shallow,I decide to add the uplifting above video of music from Tony Anthony’s Spaghetti western trailers.

A week after the death of Motorhead’s main guy Lemmy(Ian Kilminster),we have suddenly now lost two of the genre’s great icons,one being in film and the other being in music…

  • Angus Scrimm: born Lawrence Rory Guy,the 6’4” actor was a regular fixture in horror films that ranged from his early roles in THE AROUSERS(A.K.A.: SWEET KILL),SCREAM BLOODY MURDER,and THE SEVERED ARM before working for filmmaker Don Coscarelli in both his debut film JIM:THE WORLD’S GREATEST and his landmark role in PHANTASM,which lead onto four sequels(including one that has recently wrapped 7 to 8 years of filming). He also had film roles in the likes of A PIECE OF THE ACTION,MINDWARP,LEGEND OF THE PHANTOM RIDER,SATANIC, VAMPIRELLA,THE LOST EMPIRE(Jim Wynorski’s debut film),SUBSPECIES,BEL AIR, THE OFF SEASON,WISHMASTER,TRANSLYVANIA TWIST,MUNCHIE,MUNCHIE STRIKES BACK,I SELL THE DEAD,JOHN DIES AT THE END,SATAN HATES YOU,DEADFALL(with Nicolas Cage),WITCHES BREW,CHOPPING MALL,NIGHTFALL(in a scene that ended up deleted and on the cutting room floor),AUTOMATIONS,and RED 71.
  • David Bowie: the British musician who came along on the waves of glam rock and elevated himself into many various rock music genres(new wave,soul,hard rock,industrial/alt.rock) that kept his music sounding fresh d with the ties(no matter what time era and decade he performed in). He also acted in many films that included the likes of THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH.MERRY CHRISTMAS MR .LAWRENCE,THE HUNGER,LABYRINTH,INTO THE NIGHT,THE PRESTIGE,THE VIRGIN SOLDIERS,ZOOLANDER,BASQUIAT(as Andy Warhol),MR. RICE’S SECRET, AUGUST,BANDSLAM,CHRISTIANE F.,ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS,JUST A GIGOLO, YELLOWBEARD,THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST,and TWIN PEAKS:FIRE WALK WITH ME. he had just completed a soon-to-be-released album and was 69.

They will both be very heavily missed.
