It's Halloween! Production notes for the first of our two-part Radio Free Charleston Halloween Special!

We've got quite the Halloween treat for you, as we present the first half of our Halloween special. I'm not going to go into great detail about the host segments this time, except to say that I start out evil, and end up dead. We're still working out how to shoot around that "dead" part for the second half of the RFC Halloween special. Suffice to say, fans of the ghoulish will not want to miss this stranger-than-usual episode of Radio Free Charleston.

The music is top-notch! We have our first returning band, Whistlepunk, with the holiday-appropriate "Vampire Love Song." You can read more about Whistlepunk here, here, and here, and visit their MySpace page, here.

Our other musical guest is The Concept, one of Charleston's most energetic new bands. I found out about these guys by reading Nick2's Localmusic blog here at theGazz.com. Nick was raving about how good these guys are, and when I followed the link to their MySpace page, I found that I agreed. Then I started pestering them to come on the show, and they did. It's very short notice, but you can catch The Concept tonight at The MonkeyBar in Huntington, and Saturday at Dave's Den in Red House.

We also have public service announcements, animation (including a new Pentagram Flowerbox) and a fleeting glimpse of Captain Action! You can watch the first half of the Radio Free Charleston Halloween special (official name: "DEVO Shirt") by clicking here. Then go back and watch all the other episodes at the GazzTV page.

Monday Morning Art: Extremely Assaulted Photograph

This week, we kick off the week with an example of what can happen when the digitally-assaulted photographic process goes a little overboard.

Looking at the picture, you probably can't tell that it was ever even a photograph. If you did, you probably think it's a close-up of germs or something, taken under a microscope. It isn't. The picture at the right? "It's A Tree." I took the original photo in my front yard.
