Carolyn is a Gemini, heathen, gen-Xer of generally Baltic extraction. She's lived most of her life in the Chicagoland area. Politically, she's a neo-tribalist, and she considers her tribe to be Midwestern art fags; with additional clannic associations with hardcore kids, gaming geeks, and travelers. She pays general allegiance to the nations of Sci-Fi geekery and slackerdom. She has friendly trade relations and strict non-aggression pacts with the Free State of Perversion, the Isle of Lesbos, and the International Skinhead Bowling League. Politically, she's a green. Her personal obsessions include music & film-making. Her day job is in food service, because food service doesn't piss-test. She is obsessed with horror films and making horror films is part of this obsession. She loves film in general, and films that evoke strong emotion best of all, and for her this is horror, sci-fi, and the cinema of the bizarre. She has been very lucky to find a vibrant and supportive community of fellow film fans, and rabid devotes: the Wisconsin Horror Mafia, and a partner in living and filmmaking: Rob Michels, founder of their production company/collective: Screaming Like Banshees. Because this obsessive devotion drives us, we are compelled to and enjoy crafting all aspects of their films from story to visuals to music. Since they are not employed at this but just obsessed with it, they are free to do just as they choose with their movies--only on a miniscule budget! That is the challenge. You can see their short films: Flesh-Eating Fog, and The Christmas Mummy online, our anthology features Terror Tales and Hole In The Wall are on VHS cassette. Their darkwave three-piece musical project, BlackLight, has a cassette out on Brave Mysteries.
Host Rob Matsushita is a playwright, author, and filmmaker. You can learn more about his work at IverPictures.com.
It happens sometimes. People just explode. Natural causes. Recording at the Froth House, in front of a live audience, we talk about Alex Cox's punker trip through the ideas of counter-culture, "Repo Man." Put your seatbelt on, boy. I don't ride with anybody 'less they wear their seatbelt. It's one of my rules.
