The PopCulteer September 25, 2015
It’s time for our weekly collection of essays, random thoughts, stray photos, and alerts to what’s happening. This week, the PopCulteer is yet another grab bag of smaller items.
We’re going to kick it off with the podcast edition of STUFF TO DO, our new weekly audio roundup of the cool things you can do in and around Charleston. Since this is still a work in progress, this week’s edition is an attempt to speed things up by talking really fast and running through the items as quickly as possible. You can hear STUFF TO DO in this handy dandy little widget [HERE]. If you can’t get it to work, shout loudly at your computer for a few moments, then move onto something else.
ShockaCon wrap up
ShockaCon 2015 is in the books and it’s going to go down as a winner. Despite (or perhaps because of) the last minute cancellation by international movie star and alledged crackpot Bai Ling, the show was a rousing success. Mat Fraser, a last minute replacement for the ailing Rose Siggins, proved to be a charming and charismatic guest and was particularly engaging when paired with his American Horror Story co-star Drew Rin Varrick. Ari Lehman, the original “Jason” from Friday the 13th was a pure hyper delight and The Walking Dead was well represented by Adam Minoravich and Jeryl Prescott.
It was great seeing old friends like The Renfields and star artist Chris Woodall and meeting new friends like the crew from RAKFilms and The Cryptoids. The late night entertainment was a blast as always, highlighted by the Riveting Roses, Professor Sinister, The Cryptoids, The Irreplaceables, and The Renfields, who welcomed Ari Lehman as a guest vocalist on one song and then capped off their performance with a mosh pit pillow fight.
Another highlight was the coming out party for a brand new band, Hurl Brickbat, who were so good that we made them the stars of this week’s RFC Mini Show which you can see right here…
We also have a clip of the ShockaCon costume parade, which you can see here…
You can expect a whole lotta ShockaCon videos here in PopCult over the next several days.
