Art and Fiction Collide!
Posted on: May 8th, 2016 by Anthony Rapino

Don’t run away!  I know you want to.  I know as soon as you see the word “Kickstarter,” nasty visions of wannabe artists and writers float through your mind, all with their hands extended begging for your hard-earned cash. Push those visages away momentarily.  Instead, picture rewards beyond measure: hand-painted sculptures, exclusive maps, things that […]

The Halloween Club
Posted on: March 18th, 2016 by Anthony Rapino

Ever since I started sculpting, I have wanted to create a throwback to the mail-in kids’ club packages I remember from the 80s and 90s.  Those, now nostalgic, sign-ups we’d send in–sometimes with box tops, sometimes with Kool-Aid stamps or product labels–which resulted in a surprise package at our doorsteps. These boxes would contain all […]

The Holiday Home Stretch 2013
Posted on: December 27th, 2013 by Anthony Rapino

We’re well into the last week of the year, and I for one couldn’t be happier.  Sure, we can get into the whole one-year-older frame of mind, but what good will it do?  Instead, I like to embrace this holiday home stretch.  I bask in the warmth of vacation days, swim in the pool of […]

Creepy Freebies and October 1st Halloween Movie Marathon Madness
Posted on: October 1st, 2013 by Anthony Rapino

Happy October! Oh yes.  After nearly two months of anticipation, the big month has finally arrived.  We’ve celebrated every celebrate-able moment of the season: the harvest moon, the autumnal equinox, the first day we spotted a leaf changing color, the first day we spotted Halloween items in a store…  Of course we have to celebrate […]

Dread Central’s Box of Dread Unboxing

When I wake up shivering under my blankets in mid-September, it makes me smile.  It reminds me that only weeks away, the greatest season of the year will be upon us.  And really, for those of you like me, that season has already started. So it is for the amazing people over at DreadCentral.com, where […]

Freddy in Space and Vultra Video Serve up the Horror
Posted on: September 10th, 2013 by Anthony Rapino 1 Comment

Today is a good day. It’s almost mid-September, we have a mere 51 days till Halloween, seasonal merchandise is flooding local shops, and I have received a free gift from Freddy in Space, courtesy of Vultra Video. It was a simple contest.  Make a comment on the Freddy in Space blog and receive an entry. […]

Horror and the 80’s: Best Friends Forever
Posted on: August 28th, 2013 by Anthony Rapino 6 Comments

I’m sitting at my computer desk at 12:01 on a Wednesday afternoon, typing what you now read, while I listen to the heavy drops of rain fall outside my window.  It’s dark in this room–because it’s grey and overcast outside.  It’s not too hot here, but the humidity makes everything–even inside–feel damp.  I don’t mind […]

It looks like we’ve made it to the end of the first week of The Blog Tour to the End of the World!  For today’s mind-treat, I have a tantalizing guest post about hypnotism on Lee Widener’s NeverendingWonder.  You’ll also find the third game piece to the big contest.  In case you’ve missed any of the tour stops, you can  navigate to […]

Blog Tour: Day 2
Posted on: September 5th, 2012 by Anthony Rapino 2 Comments

Okay, so technically it’s not day two, it’s tour-stop two.  But I’ve already committed to the “day” titling, so we’ll all just pretend that it’s day two.  We are all dedicated fantasists anyway, so it should be a stretch. Today, to help swell your brains with nonsense, I am interviewed by Gongleby the Gnome and Blood Tongue, on Brent Michael Kelley’s […]
