New Orleans Alternative Media Expo Recap

Thanks to everyone who came out to the New Orleans Alternative Media Expo this last weekend. We had a blast and considered the experience a huge success. Many thanks to Antigravity Magazine for putting it on. We weren't really sure what kind of turnout there would be or if any Fiends would be in attendance but we were pleasantly surprised. Lot's of cool people stopped by our table, which was at a great spot in the warehouse, and besides making some good sales we had some great conversations with other Fiends about such topics as Alejandro Jodorowsky, Troma, Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky, Blaxploitation, Video Nasties, the New Orleans Cinema scene and more.

Good people. Good times. For sure.

Special shout-outs the guys who put out the FEAST comic anthology who gave us extra copies to mail out with orders to our customers.

Check out these couple of photos. First is of Brooke before the Expo opened and the second is of myself, Nick, talking with one of the attendees.

To anyone in the New Orleans area who did not attend, you missed out on a great day! We will definitely be back at the Expo next year and look forward to doing more Expos, Conventions, etc in the area. All the exhibitors there were amazing and the diversity amongst the tables was great. New Orleans is easily one of the most talented cities in America and the artwork and creativity at this Expo was proof.

Product Spotlight: Anarchy and Alchemy: The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky

Alejandro Jodorowsky remains one of cinema’s most controversial and influential film-makers. In 1968 his scandalous debut FANDO & LIS caused a riot in Mexico, forcing the Chilean-born director into exile in France. The following year his weird and violent underground smash hit EL TOPO dragged the hippy generation into the 70s, single-handedly invented the American Midnight Movie phenomenon and transformed its creator into a counter-culture icon championed by the likes of John Lennon and, latterly, Marilyn Manson.

ANARCHY AND ALCHEMY features exclusive interview material, rare images, and exhaustive chapters on all Jodorowsky’s films including the mesmerising cine-trip THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, the award-winning Oedipal circus show SANTA SANGRE, and the aborted DUNE project with Salvador Dali, Pink Floyd and H R Giger.

With further texts on Jodorowsky’s 60s terror-theatre outfit The Panic Movement, his mime projects with Marcel Marceau and his graphic novel collaborations with Moebius, and illustrated throughout, ANARCHY AND ALCHEMY is the first and definitive study of this enigmatic, elusive yet illuminating artist.

288 pages. First edition.
