Hey guys and ghouls! Nymphetamine Jade here again to give you the scoop on some new ejuice that I have grabbed a hold of. Doomsday Gourmet has sent me an amazing lineup of some of their flavors. The flavors that they sent me are Holo-berry, Holocaustard, Apocalypso, Holo-pie, and Applecalypse. All of these flavors were sent to me with a 0 nic level and a 80VG/20PG ratio.
The flavor profiles on these are amazing! I’m not even gonna lie to you, Holocaustard is probably one of my favorites out of them all. Holocaustard, which is now listed as Creme De La Corpse, is a beautiful French vanilla custard perfectly mixed with caramel, cinnamon, and brown sugar. It doesn’t hit you all at once to be an overwhelming blend of flavors. The brown sugar and caramel are tasted on the exhale and leaves a pleasant taste afterwards. This concoction didn’t last too long as I vaped the majority of it after I got it. I’m going to have to put in an order for more soon!
And finally, Holo-berry and Holo-pie! I couldn’t find these listed on the website, but will try my best to describe them. The Holo-berry tastes like a powerful blueberry custard and was actually a friend of mine’s favorite. He ran his RDA on a lower build and the taste of the blueberry was just amazing. It really knocks your socks off! The Holo-pie is a mixture of Holocaustard with added cinnamon and tart green apples. This flavor was great as well, but the green apples were a little much for my taste. A let a few other friends try this to just make sure it wasn’t me, and they acted like they could have drank the entire bottle. I’m going to let this one steep as well and come back to it in a few weeks.
A huge thanks to Brian Heacox of Doomsday Gourmet for sending me these to try out for him. I really enjoyed this line and cannot wait to place an order for more Holocaustard. For more flavors like Citris Suicide, Survivor’s Guilt, and Pale Rider, check out their website http://www.doomsday-gourmet.com/ and be sure to check out their secret flavors as well!
Hey guys and ghouls! Two weekends ago, I jumped back into the convention scene. You guys missed a hell of a show if you were not at this convention! Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Festival was held at Music City Center on May 8th, 9th, and 10th in beautiful downtown Nashville. The new convention center allowed for there to be a ton of space and some new vendors and guests. The amazing poster for this year’s festivities was done by the talented Joel Robinson and features the beautiful Stacey Dixon.
Some of the guests included Tony Todd, PJ Soles, Robert Mukes, Santiago Cirilo, Roddy Piper and one of my faves, John Dugan. I came with a few actors in mind that I wanted autographs from, the first being Sean Patrick Flanery from the Boondock Saints fame. Of course he’s also appeared in many other films such as “Powder”, “The Dead Zone”, “SAW3D”, and “Suicide Kings”. I did take a few minutes to talk to him about the 3rd Boondock Saints movie, which has been confirmed. Sean Patrick says that he is working hard with Troy Duffy writing the third movie and they are looking to begin filming in August.
Next on my list was another Boondock Saints veteran, Brian Mahoney. This was Brian’s first time at Full Moon and only his second convention, so you can imagine that he earned a spot on my list to add to my Boondock Saints collection. Brian has also recently starred in Furious Seven and other past films include American Reunion., Jarhead, and The Pitcher. Brian was extremely happy to be there and chatted about his role in the new Boondock Saints movie, with Sean Patrick and Troy promising a lot of great scenes for Detective Duffy.
In conclusion, I would have to say that Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Festival was a success. Wookie and I had an amazing time hanging out with the celebrities and vendors. We were able to score several great movies from our friend, DVD Bob of Cult Fiction Underground and also stopped by the Evil Pumpkins table to see Jeano and Tanya. Later that night, we headed out to The East Room in Nashville to attend the Cult Fiction Underground Fundraiser and help DVD Bob raise money to open Cult Fiction Underground’s new location. It was an amazing night of comedy, music and burlesque. If you were unable to attend, you can still donate here to help open the doors.
Hey guys and ghouls! Waaay back in October, I decided that it was time to make a change for the better in my life. So I kicked cigarettes and began to vape. I’m not here to preach to you that vaping is better or anything like that. I am, however, going to tell you about some awesome flavors that I encounter. Before I begin this first review though, I want to take some time out to give a HUGE thanks to Mt Baker Vapor for taking me on as an official e-juice reviewer! I hope I can do you guys justice!
Onto the review! So for my first review, I had to share the awesomeness with you guys! Mt Baker has an amazing line of GWAR juice that I knew would be amazing. I chose to get the Jizmogoblin, Bloodbath, and German Chocolate Beefcake to begin and my oh my, I was NOT disappointed. For those curious, the GWAR flavors come in a standard 50pg/50vg but you are able to choose your level of nicotine. Since I’m dripping, I chose to go with a 3mg level. For those wondering about my setup, I am currently using a copper Stingray with a Mutilator RDA. If you are using these flavors in a glass tank, I highly recommend that you get the uncolored flavors, as the coloring can stain your glass.
I’ll first begin with Bloodbath and all it’s bloody glory. The Mt Baker website describes it as “A powerful tropical fruit blend specially designed to satisfy the bloodlust of every scumdog in the universe.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. I’ve noticed that many tropical fruit flavors tend to be sometimes over-powering when it comes to vaping, but Bloodbath is the perfect blend and it has some nice clouds to it as well. I definitely give this one a two thumbs up. Next on my list is German Chocolate Beefcake…sounds interesting, right? It’s a beautiful blend of cake, coconut, chocolate, and caramel. I would have to say that this was my favorite juice to vape of the three that I chose. I’m also a bit of a desserts vaper myself, but there was something that was just damn special about this one. I’ve already went through half the bottle over the weekend because I just couldn’t put it down. Beefcake the Mighty made a hit with this recipe.
Last but not least is Jizmogoblin! This blazing blue flavor is a mixture of creamy blueberry, custard, and nut. Each bottle is specially harvested by Skullhedface herself. I enjoyed this flavor a lot and it was very delicious. I took it with me on a trip this weekend and wound up having some family members vape a ton of it while we were hanging out because they really liked it as well. If you’re interested in purchasing any of the flavors I have listed, feel free to click on the links I provided in this review and grab some! The GWAR flavors are currently priced at $10.99, so you can afford two or three! I’ve got a ton more reviews to do for Mt Baker coming up that I am very excited to share with you all.
Well hello there! I bet you never thought you’d see my face again…
That’s right! It’s Nymphetamine Jade and I am back and better than ever! So what does a writer do when they have a lack of Internet for almost two years? A boring, adult life. I did have a lot of exciting things happen in between, but I’m sure you guys aren’t interested in all of that. What I want this post to be about are the things that I have planned for my blog. Of course, I am going to continue with my movie and convention reviews and I am even looking to revive Historic Horrors. But one thing that I picked up out in the real world was vaping and I would really like to begin a vape review. I’ve already began looking into a few lines I’m wanting to try, and man, I am excited about this!
I’m trying to gauge really what the interest would be in this. Do I have any fellow vapers out there? Is there a specific juice or mod you’d like to see me try? Let me know in the comments below! For those of you interested in what I have been doing in the last couple of months, here’s a few pictures to catch you up to speed. Coming up this weekend is Full Moon Horror and Tattoo Festival in Nashville! If you might remember correctly, I attended Full Moon in Chattanooga a couple of years ago. I can’t wait to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones! You can also keep up with me on Instagram at: Nymphetamine Jade

Today is the 20th anniversary of the passing of one the greatest actors in the horror genre. Vincent Leonard Price Jr. became one of the most well known actors known for his voice and the characters he portrayed. Starting out as a theater actor, he made his film debut in 1938 with the movie Service de Luxe.A year later he appeared in Tower of London with Boris Karloff which was his first venture into the genre he became most known for, horror. But it wasn’t until the 1950’s that he did several horror films such as The House of Wax, The Fly, Return of the Fly, as well as House on a Haunted Hill.

What most people don’t realize about Vincent Price are that he was an amazing chef, an art collector, and loving husband and father. His book “Vincent Price Collection of Fine Art,” was sold in Sears-Roebuck stores between 1962 and 1971 featured works by Rembrandt, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dalí. In 1951 Price donated some 90 pieces from his own collection to East Los Angeles College in Monterey Park, California, which established the Vincent Price Art Museum. The collection contains over 9,000 pieces and has been valued in excess of $5 million. Vincent also appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carsonseveral times, once even demonstrating how to poach a fish using a dishwasher.

Sadly, 20 years ago we lost this great actor to a lung cancer. Vincent also suffered from emphysema and Parkinson’s disease. After his passing, Vincent Price was cremated and his ashes scattered off Point Dume in Malibu, California. Tonight I am celebrating my favorite actor’s life by watching some of his movies and putting on some old television shows he’s appeared in. I suggest that you students prepare to do your horror homework and do the same. Happy haunting boys and ghouls!
Oh man, if you love a little humor with your horror, have I got a movie for you! In today’s class, we are going to be reviewing a B flick movie called “Dead Moon Rising”. Of course, it’s a zombie flick…but hey, you can never get enough of zombies, right? This movie was released on April 1st, 2007 so it came a bit before all the zombie craze. The movie was filmed in the great city of Louisville, Kentucky and stars Jason Crowe, Mike Seely, and Erica Goldsmith as well as many other talented actors. Before anyone asks…yes, it’s a B flick that is meant to look like a B flick.

Zombies take over the world, people meet up and travel together for survival, and it ends in some climactic scene where everyone lives happily ever after…right? That’s usually how a typical zombie movie would go, but “Dead Moon Rising” has a unique take on the zombie genre. Plus, let me reiterate that it’s a B movie, so it’s supposed to be fun. It all starts out with Jim, played by Jason Crowe, and his coworkers go through their normal day. Then they begin to notice unusual things happening when a customer enters into the store.

The group then is forced to travel from their location, where they pick up more survivors. They meet the barely legal April, Jim’s hot ex-girlfriend Vix, and even his brother tags along for the adventure. Of course, I’m not going to spoil the rest of the movie for you because I would love to see my students do their horror homework and watch the movie! It is available for purchase on Amazon as well as 7 day rentals. Still not sure what you’re signing up for? Then click here for a small preview of one of the scenes.
Today, the premiere for the new video “I Hope You Suffer” by AFI came out. This song has officially become my summer anthem. A lot of people will talk about how music seems to have a staple in their life and this new song has just really hit the nail on the head. Just coming out of a 2 year relationship with mixed emotions, it really has helped me put into words how I feel at the moment. But I’ve gotta admit, I’ve been in love with the band for awhile now and a lot of their songs have been a big part of the soundtrack to my life. They’ve churned out a lot of amazing hits and even though some of the newer albums were met with criticism, they still seem to find ways to amaze and please their fans. The band hails from Ukiah, California and have been together for nearly 22 years now. During that time, they have released eight studio albums, 10 EPs, one live album and one DVD.
I’ll admit, I had never heard of the band until the video and song for “Miss Murder” came out. But once I heard them, I was hooked and did my research. That spawned a night long of video watching on Youtube where I learned that in the beginning, they had a totally different sound. Those who are hardcore fans will know what I mean when I talk about Answer That, Very Proud of Ya and Shut Your Mouth, which debuted between 1991 and 1998. It wasn’t until their sound took a darker turn that they gained mainstream success with albums like Sing the Sorrow and Decemberunderground. When the album Crash Love came out, I was stunned. The first song off the album was called “Medicate” and it really reminded me of what their earlier stuff. I was so hyped about the band returning with some new stuff. “Beautiful Thieves” was released soon afterwards and I loved the imagery in the video as most of AFI’s music wind up with great videos to go with their songs.
The guys behind Black Devil Doll are ready to get at it again and they need your help! Shawn Lewis, Mitchell Boone, John Osteen and Jonathan “Louis” Lewis are the men behind the cult blaxploitation flick as well Brawlin’ Broads as well as the soon to be released Brawlin’ Broads II. The idea for this movie? Well….it won’t be a movie. The DVD is a 6 part, 30 minute per episode television series that is going to be chock full of Black Devil Doll goodies and extras.
So how can we help? Donate to the brotha’s! The creators have set up an Indiegogo campaign with a shit ton of cool perks included for those that choose to donate. For example, if you choose to donate $5, you get “The Al Sharpton B.A.N. Package” which includes a one of a kind numbered digital frame from the actual production, plus a personal thanks on your Facebook from Mubia himself. How cool is that? For the serious donations though, you get the really awesome shit. For example “The Pam Grier Package” includes a walk-on roll and set visit. Afterwards, you get to spend the day shooting the shit with the cast and crew with grub and booze provided. You gotta find a way there, but they are willing to let you crash and get you to and from the airport.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to start looking into which street corner gonna be more profitable for me to start hooking on. Some of these packages are just too good to pass up!
Now don’t get me wrong…perhaps this can be done right. But the odds seem to be stacked against them. Personally….I just don’t see it happening. According to Naughty But Nice, the remake is to be directed by none other than the great Tim Burton. But let’s be realistic here….Tim really has fallen off the wagon lately with his movies. I still haven’t even gotten around to watching his Dark Shadows remake because of the reviews and opinions I’ve heard about it. It should go without explaining that they chose Johnny Depp to play Dr. Phibes as he seems to star in almost every Tim Burton movie I can remember.. My friend Michael Exler from East Coast Horror Group and I have been chatting up about this and it seemed that we both have similar opinions.
“My issue is with (Tim) Burton really. For some reason he has missed the mark with every film after Sleepy Hollow. It’s almost like he has no original ideas left in him and he is only willing to do remakes. His style is tired and the constant use of Depp, who I like, is becoming a joke in film history. I think they need a director who is willing to stay true to the original. I think Depp can play any role, but (with) Burton behind the camera…I just don’t want this to turn into another stylistic mess that has his name written all over it. But I think the film should not be made and if it has to be made…I am sorry that the one trick pony Burton got the job. Even though the remake of “House on Haunted Hill” was a bit of a let down, I thought Geoffrey Rush did a fantastic job as the Price character, and I think that is the way it should be done. Stay true to the Price performance and build the film around that. Sadly, Burton seems to build the landscape and then focus on the story.”
And realistically, I have to agree with him. I’ve never claimed to be any sort of movie expert…but as a movie lover Tim Burton has just lost his touch. “Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street ” probably the last live action movie I enjoyed that Burton directed, but even before that, it was a bit hit and miss. I really haven’t given much thought to Johnny Depp portraying Dr. Phibes. He’s a great actor who really can buckle down and channel the character that he’s set to play. But the reality comes back that I just feel like this remake shouldn’t happen.
Even though my opinion has no effect on the film being made and released, the Facebook page The Vincent Price Exhibit did bring up two valid points though on their page.
“Two things to consider when considering the proposed Tim Burton remake of DR. PHIBES: first, good or bad the new film will, in no way, have any affect on the original films; secondly, we will most likely benefit from a restored Blu-ray edition of the originals when the remake is released!”
I will still try to keep an open mind about this though…maybe Tim and Johnny can put together a fantastic movie that holds true to the original as well as pay homage to the wonderful actor that Vincent Price was. So tell me students, what is your opinion on the recent news? Do you think that the Burton/Depp duo can make a great remake of this classic film, or do you think this will be a crash and burn scenario? I eagerly await your answers and/or hate mail!
Also….it’s Vincent Price’s birthday! I think we should celebrate with a cake! Who’s with me?
