B.O.T. RADIO EP. 016:

ATTACK OF THE CRYPTIDS IS UP NOW!

LISTEN NOW AND SHARE WITH YOUR FELLOW CREATURES

Join Bunny Voodoo and the B.O.T. team (Shelly, Eric, Brian and Producer Bradley), on this creature feature episode, as they discuss mysterious creatures called Cryptids with special guest, Cryptozoologist and author, Ken Gerhard. Ken is a co-host on the History channel’s Missing In Alaska and countless other TV shows about “monster-hunting.” He fills us in on the cryptids in Texas, which “monster” has the most evidence of being the real thing and how he got started in the field. We also talk about the flood of re-makes coming out — and then things get real crazy, when our talk turns to the topic of horror penises. Yup.

Also included are our usual segments: Coming Out Of The Grave (horror movies coming out in July), Eric gives us his cryptid-themed Double Dog Dare You Film Challenge movie and Shelly  gives us a creature-inspired Hammered Horror with her 3-minute drunk review of the movie, Bite. Play along with us on our podcast’s drinking game, Mr. Tingles Is A D*#@khead. When he laughs, you drink.

MASQUE OF RED DEATH: UPDATES!

MASQUE FLYER WEBWe are getting very excited for our upcoming event, Masque Of Red Death, and we have some new updates to announce for our costume contest and silent auction. This upcoming event is our annual Membership Appreciation Party and a celebration of our 5th birthday. The free horror masquerade is open to B.O.T. members and all horror fans and will take place in Austin on June, 16th at The Madison.

The Madison. Our gore-geous venue for the night.

The Madison. Our gore-geous venue for the night.

We feel the venue is straight out of a 70’s Italian giallo movie and that you fiends will feel right at home dancing your demon feet away, showing off your evil outfits in the costume contest, bidding on several great items in our silent auction and getting your pictures taken to remember this evil night. For more details, please see OUR EVENTS page.

UPDATE #1: We announced the three categories you can enter in our Costume Contest. The contest is sponsored by Lucy In Disguise With Diamonds (Austin) and all winners will receive a $25 gift certificate and the accolades of the Hell of the Ball. We know most of you have great imaginations so we’re looking forward to your devilish outfits: sexy, gothic, bloody, horrific, outlandish or even simple. Everything is welcome. And in case you need some outfits, masks, makeup, wigs, blood, etc., all attendees get 10% off products and one day rentals at Lucy’s. Let ’em know you’re coming to the Masque of Red Death to get your discount.

• IN MOURNING category: Best gothic, victorian and traditional masquerade costume.

• OUT OF NIGHTMARES category: Best horror, grotesque, bloody and scary costume.

• DREADFUL DUO category: Best couple or friend costumes that go well together. This category is for two people and both winners will win a prize. This category can be anything: gothic, horror, funny, creative, etc. Just make sure you match — i.e. look like you go together.

The categories and a few ideas for some fun and fiendish costumes:

costume-newsletter

UPDATE #2: Our Silent Auction items are coming in and here’s an up-to-date list of all of the items. We expect a few more to make it here before the ball so keep an eye on our FB Invite page and the aforementioned Our Events page.

• TWO TICKETS TO SEE JOHN CARPENTER LIVE RETROSPECTIVE (MEZZANINE): Two tickets to see the legendary composer, director and writer, John Carpenter at ACL-Moody Theater on June 23rd. “John Carpenter: Live Retrospective” is a musical journey through his work and he will be performing themes from his classic films and new compositions. These great seats are situated on the center mezzanine, Row A. This is a must-see event for any fan of horror, but especially you fans of horror soundtracks Value: $130.00.

• TWO TICKETS TO SEE JOHN CARPENTER LIVE RETROSPECTIVE (KICK ASS 3rd ROW): Two tickets to see John Carpenter at ACL-Moody Theater June 23rd as discussed above, but this item is for two “rockstar-style” tickets — 3rd row. These great seats are situated on the floor, Row C (that’s 3rd row from the stage). Value: $300.00 apprx.

• GABRIELLE FAUST’S REVENGE: DEMONS AND DEVILS PACKAGE: The package from Texas horror writer, Gabrielle Faust, includes her novel. Revenge, a “What’s your sin?” T-shirt, beer stein, coffee mug and bag. Value: $89.

• JON ZIG ART: Airbrush art on canvas by artist Jon Zig. The canvas is 14” x 18″ and is presented in a frame with glass (frame size is 16” x 20”). Jon calls it “Fun With An Airbrush” but we think that’s code for “Demogorgon Feasts With Tentacled Eyes”. Or something like that. Value: $300.00

• MURPHO’S BONEYARD BOUTIQUE GIFT CERTIFICATE: Gift certificate to Murpho’s Boneyard Boutique (inside Murpho’s Rods and Customs) in Austin, plus some cool stickers. Get your hands on some horror inspired rockabilly items. Value: $35.00

The poster is 11”x14”, presented in a frame and is signed by the artist. Value is suggested at $15 but we think it’s worth WAY more so get your bidding fingers ready.

• COLLEEN HANSON ART: Mixed media painting from artist Colleen Hanson. This outsider art/one of a kind painting is titled “Broken From Day One #fuckcancer” and is 2ft w x 3ft h. Value: $100.00

TEXAS FRIGHTMARE WEEKEND THIS WEEKEND!

TFW LOGOIt’s that time again. Texas Frightmare Weekend! TFW takes place this weekend, April 29-May 1, at the Hyatt Regency DFW hotel in Dallas/Ft. Worth and is one of the biggest and best horror conventions in Texas. Countless celebrities from the world of horror, panels, parties, vendors and all around horror geek out fun. Presented in association with Fangoria Magazine, TFW is celebrating their 11th year and we highly recommend this event for every horror fan in Texas and beyond.

As it is our duty to support and promote Texas horror, Blood Over Texas and Blood Over Texas Radio will definitely be on site with tons of TFW coverage. Whether you’re lucky enough to attend the convention or if you’re stuck at home taking care of business, we got ‘ya covered. There are several ways you can join in the fun with us so let’s get down to the evil plans.

621c4a07-25e1-48dd-9968-b97991c6df82ROAMERS: All weekend we will be roaming the show taking video, talking to horror fans and generally enjoying the horror. We have some questions for you Texas fans, so stop us — or come to our Meat & Greet (more on that later) — and you could be on our May episode of B.O.T. Radio. The episode will be a special TFW recap show with a secret surprise celebrity interview and feedback from Texas horror fans at TFW. The show will be released on May, Friday the 13th! If you haven’t yet, subscribe to the show on iTunes, Stitcher and listen to it directly on our site. You can follow us and all of our TFW shenanigans all weekend on our social media sites. They will originate on our Instagram account and will then replicated on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Follow us to follow the fun!

GETTING HAMMERED ON FRIDAY: Ever wanted to see our drunken podcast segment, Hammered Horror, taped live and in person? Here’s your chance. We did this last year (see the video) and we’re carrying on the tradition with the movie, Getting Schooled. The screening starts at 8pm and ends somewhere around 10. Shelly Dread and Bunny Voodoo will be sitting in on the screening and plan on being hammered by the time the movie is over. Just in time to tape the segment live — right after the movie, around 10ish. The location of the taping will most likely be in front of the step and repeat again (you know, that press wall thing that is covered in TFW logos). The trick is, we don’t know exactly where the step and repeat will be this year. So we’ll have to wait until we get there to let you now exactly where to meet us. You can stay tuned to our Instagram account for the specifics. Come watch the movie with us and follow us after for a live taping. Lot’s of fun!

MEAT & GREET ON SATURDAY: After the floor closes on Saturday, come have a drink with us at the lobby bar, Aces, and meat the B.O.T. crew, your fellow B.O.T. members and your horror peers. Bunny, Bradley, Eric, Fernie and Shelly will be on hand to talk shop and geek out together. We’ll be finding a nice dark corner to set up and have a casual meet up. Just look for our spooky faces (shown above).

AFTER THE BLOODSHED: Stay tuned for our TFW recap video (will be released on YouTube) and our TFW recap podcast episode after the blood has been cleaned up from the convention floor and the monsters have gone back into the shadows. Keep an eye on the site and our social media for notifications.

We hope to see you Texas horror fans at the bloodiest weekend in Texas in a few days!
