“It’s a somber mood for The Grue Crew this episode. Our Gruesome family received some devastating news this past week. Our brother in pods Santos “The Black Saint” Ellin Jr. passed on September 21st, 2017. A loyal host of the show since it started back in 2013, Santos was not just a fun voice and a bitter commenter. He was family. For this special episode of Horror News Radio, Doc Rotten, Dave Dreher, Thomas Mariani and Christopher G. Moore pay tribute to their favorite curmudgeon and try to make sense of all this sadness.”

This week the horror community lost an amazing voice and advocate, and many people lost a true friend and loved one. There will never be another one like him.

Dragon Con Horror and HNR

Everyone has their two great tastes that taste great together moments. Well, we’ll all be getting to enjoy one of those moments this coming Labor Day weekend in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. This particular version of rich chocolate plunging into creamy peanut butter is going to be in the form of the Grue Crew of Horror News Radio/Decades of Horror descending upon Dragon Con 2016 and landing in the Dragon Con Horror Track as panelists.

So while everything else is happening, some news that broke that put a smile on my face.

I’ve been nagging my good friend Bill Mulligan (among others) for years now to get his butt down to Atlanta for Labor Day Weekend to share in the amazing fun that is Dragon Con. Not only is he FINALLY going, but he gets to go as one of the recognized Attending Professionals, and he’s bringing some of Gruesome Magazine’s Grue-Crew along as first timers as well.

Tombs of the Blind Dead

They were a unique creation that were slapped with the zombie label. Although that was only after they were billed as something so far out off the mark- and more than a wee bit dishonest -that it has become something of an exploitation theater history legend.

In 1971 Amando de Ossorio introduced the world to a nightmare creation now best known as The Blind Dead. They lasted for four films, all of them watchable, and then sort of disappeared from the genre landscape. They’d make appearances here and there on late night cable and VHS over the years- not always as the Blind Dead though -before getting a fitting DVD treatment in the 2000s.

Well, it’s not just for geeks. There are all manner of podcasts out there on the internet right now covering news, conspiracy, health, sports, etc. But the world of the geek is well covered on the podcasting front.

Podcasting Around

And that’s why I’m so often surprised by the large number of people I run into at geek conventions, let alone out in the work-a-day world, who have no idea what’s out there or express little curiosity in what’s out there.
