The film, which premiered to a sold-out audience at the Tribeca Film Festival this past spring, gives an inside look at the life of the Grammy-nominated electronic dance music superstar who stands as one of pop music’s most tireless multi-hyphenates: founder of the taste-making record label Dim Mak and a chart-topping producer-remixer-DJ with his finger pressed firmly to the pulse of cutting-edge youth culture. Vulnerable and often bittersweet, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead was shot over the course of three years, during the making of his Neon Future double album (Dim Mak/Ultra Music, 2014/15). It follows his journey to play the biggest show of his career and centers around the complex yet loving relationship with his father, the Benihana restaurant tycoon, daredevil athlete and former Olympian Rocky Aoki.

Orlando Arocena Just Secured More Space On Our Wall With His Insane Rogue One/ Full Metal Jacket Mashup Prints

It’s safe to say that we love the work of vector artist extraordinaire, Orlando Arocena.  We have several of Orlando’s prints and this past weekend, the Poster Posse showed us what he’s been up to lately and we HAVE to get them.

Orlando-Arocena-Profile-Picture

Orlando is a huge fan of Star Wars, (DUH!) and he decided to do some prints that mash up the upcoming film, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” with another of his favorite films, Stanley Kubrick’s insanely lethal, “Full Metal Jacket.”  The end result is two phenomenal parody prints that we are dying to hang on our walls.   Here is what he had to say about the project.

“Back in 2015 I was excited to hear the news about a potential Star Wars Rogue One story being developed, and directed by Gareth Edwards . I was very happy to read how the story would be more set within a military, covert ops thematic.  A year later and after a few trailers. I’m back to pay tribute with a parody.  I decided to pay reverence to one of my favorite wartime movies, Stanley Kubrick’s, “Full Metal Jacket” and the artist who created that films iconic artwork, Philip Castle, by visually combining the intensity and fighting spirit of the Rebellion in a new vector tribute.”

SyFy’s Upcoming Series: “Channel Zero: Candle Cove” Looks Insanely Creepy

All nightmares come from somewhere….

Bloody_painter_helen_otis_creepypasta_logo_by_yaguyi-d6qrnrq

The first teaser for SyFy’s upcoming anthology horror series, “Channel Zero: Candle Cove” is a very small tease of what looks like a MASSIVELY creepy show.  The official blurb goes as such:

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 11.13.10 AM

“Based on a popular “creepypasta” (user-generated horror stories that are published and passed around the Internet), Candle Cove centers on one man’s obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s, and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.”

Blurry screen shots with quick edits, creepy music, the sound of a fast heartbeat and a creature made up of teeth leads us to believe that we won’t be getting much sleep when the show hits the air.  Here are some general facts:

  • Show premiers on SyFy on September 27th, 2016
  • Independent filmmaker Craig William Macneill will direct all six episodes of “Channel Zero: Candle Cove”
  • Nick Antosca (“Hannibal”) wrote the pilot and will serve as showrunner and executive producer alongside Max Landis.
  • The show stars: Paul Schneider, Fiona Shaw, Shaun Benson, Natalie Brown, and Luisa D’Oliveira
  • The image of the “tooth monster” eating teeth out of the kids hand will haunt us forever.
  • The second installment of Syfy’s horror anthology series Channel Zero, is already locked and loaded.  It’s being called, “The No-End House” and tells the story of a young woman named Margot Sleator (Amy Forsyth), who visits the No-End House, a bizarre house of horrors that consists of a series of increasingly disturbing rooms. When she returns home, Margot realizes everything has changed.
