Happy Anniversary View-Master!

Here's some more View-Master's that never were. Courtesy of being sick in bed. There may be more to come depending on how long I have this cold.

With Viemaster turning 75 I figured it would be fun to make some fake Viewmaster sleeves. I have to admit, I was inspired by another fan who has some cool fake packaging as well. I started getting into them again a few months ago and found out they were created in my home town of Portland, Oregon.

Summer is in full swing! So here's a batch of songs that should suit the warm evenings well. I've had this kicking around in various versions for years. Some of the tracks are a little more common since I first put it together, but they're great none the less. In all my record collecting of horror soundtracks I've come up with a bunch of non-horror scores that I always wanted to make a mix of. A couple of the great composers aren't on here because I've made comps of their work on this blog before (John Barry, Roy Budd).Hope you enjoy, wish I could have included that dream package of contents listed above.CineSoundVol.1

Once The Pyx was released on a cleaned up DVD (not the horrible Hooker Cult Murders version) I was excited to finally rip a clean copy of the audio for the still unreleased soundtrack. It provides a unique listening experience with its eerie choral pieces and hidden gems of Karen Black's folk songs. I was sitting on this for a while, but after a few people requested a re-up of the vhs ripped soundtrack I decided it was time to get the digitally remastered copy out there. I guess we'll have to enjoy this until they unearth the original tape recordings. Thanks Karen!
note: this video is from my VHS ripped version.

I've been planning on putting together different themed library music compilations for a while. With volume 2 I wanted to focus on the darker side of those instrumentals and the variety of styles that fall under that umbrella. I kind of think of it as a great soundtrack to a horror film that was never made, or the library companion piece to the Written In Blood series. Hope you enjoy it!

To start off the New Year right I've been re-uping all the old music links. Hopefully these will last longer than the other ones. Thanks for being patient and for all the nice comments on the mixes. I hope to get the next library volume up soon and another selection highlighting a composer's soundtrack work. Stay tuned...

Finally, after many prototypes I finished designing and illustrating my Thaumatrope Coaster project. These went out as Christmas presents and are intended for future promotional pieces. Chris Cilla helped me screen print 100 of them. See the video below for a demonstration!
