Detective Popcorn and the Hot Dog Squad
"There ain't no way I'm gonna catch that BTK Killer being so dellliiccciooouuuss."

Every week I listen to this horror comedy podcast called Last Podcast on the Left. They cover serial killers, cults, the paranormal, alien encounters, and conspiracy theories, and while they're exhaustively researched, they're also incredibly funny. Perhaps my favorite moment comes from their BTK Killer episodes. Apparently the police task force set up to catch him called themselves The Hot Dog Squad and weren't particularly good at their job. This led to the recurring character, Detective Popcorn, who is too busy enjoying his delicious salty kernels to do any police work. Every episode with bad police work seems to be at the hands of Detective Popcorn.

Last Podcast on the Left has been traveling across the country doing live shows, and I actually got the chance to meet them at their latest show at the Black Sheep in Colorado Springs. It was a surprisingly good turnout, and they were nice enough to sign a copy of my poster.

The show is not for the squeamish or easily offended, but if you're into the macabre and have a sick sense of humor, I recommend checking them out on SoundCloud or iTunes. 

My favorite episodes are:
H.H. Holmes soundcloud.com/lastpodcastonth…
Albert Fish soundcloud.com/lastpodcastonth…
The Aum Shinrikyo Death Cult soundcloud.com/lastpodcastonth…
and the episode that created Detective Popcorn soundcloud.com/lastpodcastonth… (sixteen minutes in; this is part two so definitely listen to the first part to get the entire experience).

Wow, I hadn't realized how long it's been since my last journal here! I promise I'm not dead. Here's what I've been up to.

I've tried to get into two local art festivals this summer but was rejected from both of them. I had actually been accepted into one of them two years prior but the Waldo Canyon Forest Fire cancelled the entire thing. I submitted pretty much the same stuff as last time. Perhaps the judges changed?

I have managed to get some art into a gallery or two.

Punctuation Shaker by artizek 
"Punctuation Shaker" is was at the Glovinsky Gallery in Denver.

Figure 1 by artizek

"Figure 1" is being shown at The Cottonwood Center for the Arts in downtown Colorado Springs.

Exhibition Male by artizek

...And "Exhibition Male" is currently at the Edge Gallery in Denver.

No word on a sale yet (it would be my first), but I'll let you know should anything happen. For now I'm going to submit more art to galleries and magazines, and continue to work on this series of smaller paintings.

See you around.
