Bloodbath McGrath? Yeah, Maing: She’s The News…

Chances are, if you’re familiar with me/my work:
at one point or another you’ve either read my enthusiastic ramblings
about the phenomenonicon known as Liz McGrath
or you’ve heard me flappin’ my gums on her behalf.

Well, as it turns out?
I’m not the only effer with a keen eye, honed-ear, & impeccable sense of taste.
See, there’s this gent by the name of Cecil B Feeder—& he’s done gone & made a movie
about little Miss Thing herselfness.  Name’s Bloodbath. You know, as in: ‘Bloodbath McGrath’?

Even if you don’t: just smile, nod, & spot-check this tease of a trailer on out…

While I’ve yet to see the docu-rama drama myself, folks who reside in Nueva York—or
very least, plan on being there this eve—are in luck.

The movie premieres TONIGHT:
Saturday, February 12, 2011
7:30 p.m. at MOMA NYC
Theater 2, T2

as part of the series

“All The Wrong Art : Juxtapoz Magazine On Film”

Among the itinerary:
Legendary X Offender, Debbie Harry, is scheduled to appear—
both to provide an introduction to the film
as well as to participate in a discussion
thereafter

[ & of course, the Bloodiest of Baths will be in attendance;
ditto, director of celebrated
celluloid reliquary ]

However: provided here, now—
a smattering of retinal treats,

a modest sampling of specimen
from this local luminary’s collected body of works
that begs the question: which ‘bodies’ among The Body
were ever actually…bodies…at all?

[ if any ]

E X H I B I T . A

Black Deer sculpture

Deer House

Truth Decay diorama

Death By Desire

Frankie Machine

Said another way: oftentimes these “taxidermied toys,” as they’re referred,
are the cause of great pause/consternation for the artist’s audience:

My assumption is that, despite the hallucinatory realm which these phantasmagories inhabit—
the harrowing “Frankie Machine” [above], for example, in which McGrath’s allegorical depiction of
The Man with the Golden ArmThe Man With The Golden Arm, Nelson Algren renders a dramatic stasis through a potent mix of personal interpretation
and consummate skill—ultimately, it’s a soulful quality about the eyes of
these mythological beings that resonates within the human condition.

A sense of psychological lockjaw.  Addicted. Creatures of habit as much as habitat.

Translation of the Latin text?
“No One Is Free Who Is Enslaved To The Body”

H O W E V E R , E N O U G H !
of my blathering

This is, after all, work that speaks for itself—& rightly so…

For that reason—among countless othersthe Managament hereby deems it imperative
that your library includes a copy of Everything That Creeps : a gorgeous compendium
of Miss McGrath’s work [ through 2005 ].  The book itself is an <i>objet d’art</i>:
with a die-cut hardcover exterior, full-color glossy pages thick as most magazine
covers [ except with sepia stains at the edges, & cute-enough-to-kill doodles
& details scattered throughout ].  Truly, the tome invokes a sense that
one has happened upon some rare, fantastic relic from last century’s
dustbowl era.

I N . W O R D S . N O T . M Y . O W N
[ excerpt of product description ]

“112 pages of full-color photos & detail shots
reveal the exquisitely complex details of [ McGrath’s ] sweetly twisted creatures,
giving a glimpse of what the City of Misfit Toys might have become had it been
saved by Satan rather than Santa.”

Saturday, July 10th     †     2010      †      The Vista Theatre
This Is Ain’t Your Standard Midnight Screening, MoFos… This Is Peaches Christ
Serving Southern California A Serious Dose of Correctness Uninterruptus

»  With A Spine-Snap Twist  «

All About Evil is Joshua “Peaches” Grannell‘s First Written-&-Directed-By Feature
(And It’s Bloody Brilliant!)

experience. this. Tour de Fierce!

Peaches Christ, Thomas DekkerLook out! Your town is next!

Peaches Christ Productions and The Vista Theatre are proud to announce the special Los Angeles engagement of “ALL ABOUT EVIL: The Peaches Christ Experience in 4-D” on July 10, 2010 at The Vista Theatre, located in the city’s beautiful Silverlake District.

Directed by Joshua Grannell, the alter-ego of San Francisco drag sensation Peaches Christ, this very special event will include a pre-film “spooktacular” hosted by Peaches Christ herself, and feature a live performance by EVIL star Thomas Dekker, from the recent Nightmare on Elm Street remake, with his back-up group “The EVIL kids”: All About Evil co-stars Jade & Nikita Ramsey, Ashley Fink, and Anthony Fitzgerald.

So LOS ANGELES! Get Ready to Satiate Your Midnight Movie Appetite!

Elvira, Mistress of the DarkPart of the 4-D experience includes a very special guest appearance and pre-show interview with Cassandra Peterson (Elvria, Mistress of the Dark), as well as an audience Q&A.

Fresh from the roaring successes of its World Premiere in San Francisco, as well as a sold-out screening in Austin, TX last month at the famed Alamo Drafthouse, All About Evil, and in particular the Peaches Christ Experience in 4-D, is fast becoming the show to see this summer. A cast of ghouls! William Castle-styled hi-jinks! Flat-out EVIL fun!

Natasha LyonneDon’t miss this chance to see the film as it’s meant to be seen! In Four Frightening Dimensions!

Additionally, Peaches Christ also strongly encourages audience members to be creative, have fun, and dress up in their finest “gore couture!”

Missing limbs? That’s alright – Peaches believes that less is more when it comes to the gore, couture that is. Is your fierce, new shirt all blood-stained? Don’t fret, Peaches’ believes you should be proud of your day’s messy work. Everything goes better with horror!

Deranged Divas! Brainwashed Back-up Dancers! Wasp Women! Vampires! Deformed Nuclear Fallout Survivors! (Yes, you read that correctly…) This show runs the gamut from Aliens to Zombies.

drag queensAside from the Guignol Grand Dame emcee and guide through this evening of violence, Peaches Christ, the show’s Midnight Mass Players include the dark, demented talents of Trixxie Carr (right), PJ Soulless, Tan-Gyna, Hugz Bunny, Lil’ Evie, L. Ron Hubby (below), Lady Bear, Mad Magda & MORE!!

It will be a night to dismember, and you won’t want to miss being at the beautiful, historic Vista Theatre so you can say you were there to be an actual part of the gorgeous EVIL

Sleep-deprived, eyes feel like my corneas have been fried by my monitor,
just spent something like a nine-hour span working on what
less than 15 minutes after my marathon of fingerprints
I’m already thinking was a lame concept to develop.

But enough with the waaaahmbulantastic “tl;dr”—
lemme get this outta the way instead:

As an art fag, yeah:
I’m backin it.
