If you didn’t catch these recordings last week over at The Bees Are Dead, I was honored to read from Dennis Villelmi’s superb book of cosmic horror poetry, “Fretensis: In the Image of a Blind God” (2014). The Bees Are Dead has graciously allowed me to release them here again at the blog.
Thanks again, Dennis, for allowing me to share your Gothic visions this way.
I am honored today to share with you three recordings of me reading from Dennis Villelmi’s Fretensis: In the Image of a Blind God. The Bees Are Dead has graciously published the readings over at its website; you can find them right here.
Thank you, Dennis, for allowing me to interpret your outstanding poetic work.
If you are a horror fan, you’re in for a rare treat. Stop over at The Bees Are Dead to read Dennis Villelmi’s interview with Lia Beldam, who portrayed the woman in Room 237 in Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Shining.” (Fans of the 1977 novel and its 2013 sequel, “Doctor Sleep,” may recognize the character as the ghost of Lorraine Massey.)
Dennis chatted with Ms. Beldam about a few different aspects of filming — including her experiences with Kubrick and Jack Nicholson. It’s great stuff.
The newest item featured over at B.A.D. is an official response by Beth Fukumoto, who is a member of the Hawaii House of Representatives, to a racist hate letter that she recently received. Fukumoto, who switched her party affiliation earlier this year from Republican to Democrat, has been a target of racially motivated antipathy since then. (Fukumoto was actually interviewed by B.A.D.’s own Dennis Villelmi in April.)
