I'm not actually 100% sure of the "telepresence" factor but some of these are definitely interactive and "live."

Congrats to Russell Dowden on a year of publishing Rockstar Magazine!

Check out the 2-page spread on page 25. It’s a flashback retrospective on the long-strange trip from producing the conference program for the ill-fated 38th annual National UFO Conference slated for September 14-16th, 2001 and the launch of Austin Para Times, which became Weird Magazine, which got bought by Alex Jones, and morphed into InfoWars Magazine, and ultimately led Russell to briefly publish Paranoid Magazine and now for a year, Rockstar Magazine.

I just learned of Art Blondin’s death. I probably first met him back in 1990 when I was working downtown at the main branch of the Austin Public Library. One of my friends and coworkers had a roommate working for Art when he was based out of the BBQ Caboose on West 5th Street. The coworker and I would go there for our lunch break and climb up into the cupola to eat our food. Art and his wife “Z” were always so friendly to me and my young freak friends.
The good food and good memories continued on to the South Lamar ArtZ Rib House and Live Music venue.
It wasn’t until running into Art & Z at Gino’s one night that I became aware of Art’s musical side; seeing him get up on stage and play bass guitar with the rotating musical guests.
I guess the last time I saw him I was having dinner at El Mercado on South Lamar, probably a Monday night musical shindig.
Farewell Art.

Very sad news to pass on. Art Blondin of Artz Rib House fame has passed away. He was found at 10 a.m. this morning at his new barbecue joint in Florence by an employee coming to work. Florence police chief Adam Marsh said the cause of death is under investigation. I met Art as a bass player for Jon Emery. His Rib House on S. Lamar Blvd. was always a music-friendly venue until it closed a couple years ago. Just stunned by this news.

The Stephen Romano Recovery Fund

Stephen Romano

Author Stephen P. Romano

One of my best friends was recently struck by a Ford F150 truck that jumped the curb, hitting him hard, sending him up and over the vehicle. Every bone but one was broken in his right leg and he is covered with bruises, abrasions, cuts, and road-rash. He’s lucky to be alive. My friend is Stephen P. Romano, a noted science-fiction / horror author who is one of the most creative people I know and one of the biggest inspirations in my life. And now I have even more to be inspired by in his amazing strength moving forward with his recovery from this terrible incident.

But he needs our help and so I hope you will consider donating to his Recovery Fund at

www.GiveForward.com

 

Some of my past acknowledgements of Steve’s efforts:

Local Heroes

One of my very best friends in the world has a brand new book out called Black Light.

I first met “Romano” while in my senior year attending Stephen F. Austin high-school. We were both dishwasher / prep-cooks at Magnolia Cafe on South Lamar. I quickly discovered he is one of the most driven writers I’ve ever met. I’ve watched him spend hour upon hour, day upon day, for months and years, writing by hand and typing into computers the myriad fantastic adventures filling his imaginative mind.

Our friendship lead us to work together on a variety of audio, video and print projects, as well as the odd event now and then. Steve has come a long way since my first meeting with that already accomplished writer, director and storyboard artist. He’s befriended and worked with

Stephen has a vast and rapidly growing body of work ranging from “Comic Book Soundtracks” to published (and unpublished) books, comics, teleplays, graphic novels, soundtracks, faux vintage retro movie poster art, and even package designs for movie related memorabilia. He has also created and hosted some of the most fun and exciting events I’ve ever attended. Check out the growing list (at the bottom of this post) of amazing projects and events that Stephen Romano has produced over the years.

Steve is the creator of several amazing works ranging from novels (The Riot Act, Black Light, and others), to TV & Movie Adaptations (Masters of Horror: Incident On And Off A Mountain Road and others), to comic books and digital art (Zombie, Shock FestivalHalloween Returns to Haddonfield, Masters of Horror: Incident On And Off A Mountain Road, and others) , to DVDs (StarCrash Special Edition and Shock Festival), as well as other artistic creations.
