Tour of Trash Palace, 1998

Trash Palace began in 1995. It started off as a way for me to sell off some excess horror movie posters and it quickly grew into selling rare VHS tapes, soundtrack records and cool toys all with an exploitation movie slant. Back then Trash Palace was operating out of my apartment which was near Wheaton, Maryland until I moved in 2001. Since then it has grown in size and moved another time. I recently came across this handheld video that I shot in the dreaded VHS-C format on January 13th, 1998. Come with me now for a trip down memory lane when I was a bit skinnier and a lot snarkier! Come check out some of the movie posters, monster toys, autographs and other junk, both in and out of focus.

Trash Palace on WOWD's Rock Continuum!

Last March 9th, 2020, I was a guest on WOWD Radio in Takoma Park, Maryland on Steve Lorber's "Rock Continuum" show. Steve has a new segment called "Defend Your Music" in which every other week his guest comes on to play whatever they like and then discuss the tracks. For this episode I brought along some soundtrack music from "Vampyros Lesbos", "Mondo teeno", "The Human Tornado", "Don't Open the Window", "Groupie Girl", "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls", "The Green Slime", "Beat Girl", "Don't Torture a Duckling" and others. The running time is app. 73 minutes. Enjoy!

R.I.P. JANINE REYNAUD, 1930 - 2018

Word has come our way that Janine Reynaud, the iconic actress of Jess Franco's "Succubus" and "Kiss me Monster", has passed away. She also acted in several European cult faves of mine including the spy film "Ypotron", Max Pecas's "I Am A Nymphomaniac" and José Bénazéraf's "Frustration". Reynaud acted in about 30 movies total, her untypically striking appearance will remain a staple in my mind of the Euro cult movie world. R.I.P. Janine Reynaud, 1930 - 2018.

"Gonks Go Beat" (1965) movie clip. from Brian Horrorwitz on Vimeo.

Amazing clip from the UK movie. Look for Ginger Baker and Bobby Graham among the drummers.
