Skeleton Films [BEST OF SCP1 TEASER]

Watch this teaser on our YouTube here.

Near the end of last year, we released a little clip from an upcoming compilation of our first podcast season. I wrote about that in a short post here, where I spent more time introducing the concept. We look back onย SCP1ย (our first season) with largely mixed opinions. Though inexperience makes it a difficult listen, there are some entertaining needles hidden in the haystack.ย We agreed that a more focused compilation of its stronger moments would be a far better introduction to our current podcasts than the season as a whole.…   [continue reading]

Poor Messrs. Fish

This piece is an extract from our first print zine,ย Issue #1: Birth.ย Click here for more information.

Iย canโ€™t bear to harm a smiling face. A smiling face conceals a soul. A smiling faceโ€™s feelings are hurt when you mangle it. Eating it is bad enough, but throwing it away is reprehensible, and if I eat the smiling face it has at least served its life purpose.

Thatโ€™s why Iโ€™m sitting, edge-of-my-seat, eye-on-the-clock, flicking through a plate of goldfish crackers to find the ones with faces so I can eat them and rescue them from the garbage. It is very horrible of the makers of goldfish crackers to put faces on some but not all of the goldfish.…   [continue reading]

SCP3 #11 – Zine

Click hereย to hear SCP3 #11 on YouTube.

Since Benjamin and Iย recorded a bonus podcast detailing our first tape release, we thought we’d do a longer episode onย Issue #1: Birthย itself. Throughout this conversation, we discuss the zine page by page. We wanted to give some of the background behind the talents involved, and why we chose them. Each of the artists provided wonderful work, and deserves a spotlight. There are also some good stories behind some of our meetings. The intention is for listeners to have a copy of the zine open during this podcast, for some more context on our dialogue.…   [continue reading]

Issue #1: Birth: A Final Announcement and Update

Several months ago, we announced our first physical zine. Since that announcement, Benjamin and I have been working hard to makeย Issue #1: Birthย a reality. On the same day as this post’s publication, we’ve made our final order for the complete batch of debut issues. Once we’ve received them,ย we’ll send out individual copies to our subscribers. With its release just a few days away, this post will take a look at each of the zine’s talented contributors. In addition, I’ll detail a few of the difficulties we’ve encountered in the process, and how they’ve helped us to develop.…   [continue reading]

Volume #1: Birth – A Musical Gift for Zine Subscribers

This is an outdated post with links to now dead forms. Volume #1: Birth is now available on Bandcamp here!

This is something we’ve been planning and working on in the background since we announced our physical zine. Whileย Issue #1: Birthย is 100% free, including postage and packaging, we want to give all we canย to subscribers. Therefore, anyone who’s signed up will also receive an equally free tape of music and MP3 download of the contents. For those who don’t make it onto our mailing list before publication,ย Volume #1: Birth will be available on Bandcamp. However, this initial run of tapes is going to be unique.…   [continue reading]

The Myriad Talents of Doug Lussenhop

This article ties in to a podcast I recorded with Doug Lussenhop, available here.

Doug Lussenhop, also known as DJ Douggpound, is someone with far more output than many might expect. Mostly, he’s remembered as the editor who helped shapeย Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! into its distinctive and influential form. While his editing work represents a huge catalogue, it’s the tip of an incredibly intriguing iceberg. Lussenhop is never content to sit back, comfortable, in any one box. His creativity has branches in almost all forms of media, from music and writing to innovative live performances and apps.…   [continue reading]
