Pairs Well With

Starting off the haunting season with a perfect score. Always on the lookout for tasty seasonal ales, I hit the bullseye with my very first find: New Holland Brewings: ICHABOD Pumpkin Ale. The label reads: "Real pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg enrich this amber brew. Pairings: roasted poultry, root vegetables, peanut sauce and caraway." Can't wait to find out if that's true. Highly recommended.

Axe Giant

The Axe Giant the Wrath of Paul Bunyan: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is unleashed!!

Feel the earth shake and your heart pound as you come face to face with an angry American legend! This epic original score features thunderous orchestral themes blended with early American instrumentation. The soundtrack is now available at the Midnight Syndicate Store! While you are there you can also purchase the DVD and other NEW MERCHANDISE!

"From a simple flourish of strings to behemoth bass horns on the rampage, the score is everything I hoped it would be and more. The perfect marriage of sight and sound, Ed's music carries our film into that cool, cool realm of which filmmakers only dream." - Gary Jones (Director, Producer of Axe Giant)

[Hallowzing here... I was also intrigued to read this at the bottom of Midnight Syndicate's press release...]

Monsters of Legend

Monsters of Legend has arrived!

This “tribute to the golden age of horror” is inspired by horror films from the silent era, Universal Studios’ horror classics, Hammer Films, and other European horror films of the 60s and 70s. It features sweeping symphonic horror instrumental music and sound effects in the signature style the band helped pioneer. "We want to make you feel like you are a character in one of those classic horror films - that you've entered a world where any one of those iconic Universal monsters could be right around the corner," said composer Edward Douglas. The CD artwork features original images from classic Universal Studios horror movies including Bride of Frankenstein, Werewolf of London, and Dracula.

The CD and a COLLECTOR'S EDITION 12" VINYL VERSION are available at the link below. The album is also available through iTunes,, and will be available in select Halloween retailers beginning in August!

Happy Halloween...

...and an explanation. In September I started a new job which has gobbled up my time like a child gobbles up candy on Halloween night. We still had our annual Halloween party, and I am still putting on a show out in the graveyard tonight - but just barely. These events have been forces of will. I'm hoping that by this time next year, I will have the everyday duties of this new job mastered, allowing me more time to do the things I love on the best day of the year - and more time to blog about it!

P.S. Looks to be a beautiful day...and the Northstar State tonight. 49 degrees for the high temperature - no rain - no snow - no wind. You can't ask for much more than that! Be safe...have fun...and don't blow out the jack-o-lanterns!

Old School

Wow. You simply must check out Wisconsin (and world) artist Mike Hoffman's website (careful viewing at work...) Channeling all the great monster and fantasy artists of our youth, Mr. Hoffman's work is gorgeously campy for all the right reasons!
