New Blood at Blood Radio
Those of you who have been paying close attention will have noticed a few new faces in the mix over the past week, some fresh blood at Blood Radio if you will. These folks all come with the Doc’s highest hand stamps (and wristbands) of approval – they are horror fans of the finest vintage, armed with wit, wisdom and a passion for the spooky, the splattery, the salacious and the silly. Two of them even contributed essays to 2007’s Rondo Award-nominated literary labor of love, HORROR 101. I’m greatly honored to have them join our merry band of bloggers. They are:
Doc Morbius (aka Christianne Benedict)
Dr. Morbius has pursued scandalous careers as an arms merchant, a gravedigger, an entrepreneur, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and a dominatrix. She's also a transsexual and a political activist. Her first love was Godzilla. Her second was Boris Karloff. She currently spends her days wandering the Forbidden Zone in a fur bikini, dodging patrols of telepathic mutants and intelligent gorillas. No word yet on whether or not she's found her destiny.
Krisenthia currently resides in Austin, TX, where she studies criminal justice and forensic psychology. She just kicked a nasty Twizzlers habit, but still struggles with her propensity for taking way too many pics of her cat sleeping. She’s been a horror fan ever since her mom escorted her to the theater to see The Entity when she was 4 years old. (Now, that’s responsible parenting – “A film about a sexually voracious ghost? Sounds like perfect viewing for minors...”) Krisenthia is very excited about joining the WildClaw team and hopes to convey her sense of humor and overall wonder while writing about her favorite hobby – everything dark.
Having embarked several trips to the Windy City, Anna Dynamite has tasted WildClaw goodness firsthand, even going so far as to assay on the role of Silence of the Lambs’ Buffalo Bill in a round of “Scary-aoke” at WildClaw’s first Zombie Bowling. Some of her illustrious titles include The Little Boss of That Area, Tha Patron Saint of Righteous Dudes Everywhere (Tha Church of WIN), and Founder of The Church of the Flying Weenie.
Welcome to the party, ladies! Keep Sharing the Scare and Bringing the Blood! We’ll take all you’ve got…
