In between grumblings and observations on fandom and genre, I do a lot of promoting of other people’s works and passion projects. One thing I’ve really not done is promote anything I’ve been working on other than in the little bio bit at the bottom of the columns, and, let’s be honest, most people that read articles on websites tend to stop reading when they hit the first few words of those things.

However, if I learned nothing else during my years of being a professional wrestling fan and seeing Mick Foley on the television, I’ve learned that cheap pops work. Unfortunately, cheap pops of the Foley variety don’t really work all that well on a website like this. However, I also learned from the Foley years of WWE television that shameless self-promotion isn’t always a bad thing.  As such, this week I’m doing some shameless self-promotion. Think of it as my birthday gift to myself. Granted, my birthday is still five months away. However, I keep being told that procrastination is bad, so I’m getting it out of the way now.

ConCarolinas is multi-genre, multi-media convention that has at this point been plugging away in North Carolina for the better part of the last two decades. I’ve been an on and off attendee since 2014, so I’ve seen some of the growth of the convention in recent years as well as seen a couple of nice locations for the event. Although, I have to admit, of the four ConCarolinas I’ve been to, this one was a little different in more ways than one. One reason was something everyone may have noticed. The other thing was a tad more personal.

ConCarolinas is a multi-media, multi-genre convention located (this year) at the Hilton Charlotte University Place in Charlotte, NC over the weekend of June 1st, 2nd, 3rd. This year’s convention offers up a wide array of things to do and people to see with panels galore, musical guests, parties, and creators ranging from indie writers to pop culture celebrities like author/actor/pro wrestling superstar Edge. 

One of the highlights to look forward to this year will be the ConCarolinas Short Film Festival. The ConCarolinas Film Track’s heads Bill Mulligan and Jason Gilbert along with a host of creators are serving up hours of entertainment this year that, in some cases, you might not be able to catch anywhere else in the immediate future. Check out what’s on the lineup.

Fistful

This week’s assignment was a little different than the so far usual format. Not only was Richard a first time viewer, but John as well. Oh, and there was also a guest. This week’s show takes a look at a 2008 independent film from North Carolina, award winning independent filmmaker Christine Parker’s zombie western Fistful of Brains. Joining John, Becca, Richard, and, due to mid-show technical difficulties on his end, a disappearing Jerry is Bill Mulligan, award winning North Carolina filmmaker and FX artist.

On this weekend’s Assignment Horror, we ended the show by teasing the next show’s topic as The Night Stalker. This is no longer going to be the case. my favorite monster hunter has been bumped a show or two down the road. However, I’m actually really cool with this.
