Things To Come (1976)

Here are a couple of goofy promo photos for a 1976 sci-fi/sexploitation film that I recently found in Austin.  It looks so low-budget it almost hurts.  Magus Film Group was a San Antonio, Texas outfit (more info about Magus at Temple of Schlock).

I dig the font, at the very least.

Here's the color poster, via Wrong Side of the Art:

And an advertisement, care of Temple of Schlock (which gives a clearer indication as to what the film is actually about):

The Cosmic Bicycle (1972)

I*HATE*THIS*FILM's Vimeo channel is a source of many wonders.  As a fan of collagist Sätty's work, I was pretty excited to experience IHTF's most recent upload, The Cosmic Bicycle (1972), with art and design by Sätty and an early electronic score by Parasound, inc. a.k.a. Beaver & Krause.

Some screenshots:

The film is available for viewing and download at IHTF's aforementioned Vimeo site:

I'm drawn to the mix of the sinister and the whimsical (epitomized by the theme that accompanies shots of the bicycle as it makes its cosmic journey).

Ever since you crawled out we've awaited your return

There's a new mix available at my Mixcloud page.  It's been in the works for some time now. It's at least a little bit magic, I think.
A foggy dock in the early hours of morning. A dark shape begins to emerge from the mire. A sea creature? A human? Or something in between? Is it friend or foe? Can we ever really be sure?

A mix inspired by the call of the sea, from whence we all originally came. A sea that can sometimes soothe us, sometimes scare us.

Golden Sands Holiday Camp (Date Unknown)

A suitably atmospheric vintage photo found in a curio shop in Brighton, May, 2012.  My friend Stephen spied it first, but i was more than happy to pluck it from his reject pile after he made his final purchase choices.
