39 Works by Michael W. Moses

I made this video for Michael W. Moses to showcase some of his 2010 works. It is only a short list of the many pieces he completed this year. I like the unworldliness of his ceramics and choice of color. The subject matter ranges from outrageous plants, vases, vessels and inexplicable alien artifacts. I expect to see some of this stuff growing on other planets, three miles under the ocean or in the Dreamlands. You can also catch some of his works on his flickr photostream.

It’s Alive ... ALIVE!!!!!

I recently saw a post on Propnomicon’s blog about the prop work of Kenneth Stickfaden, whose electronic props have appeared in dozens of films and television shows such as Frankenstein, The Munsters, Mask of Dr Fu Manchu and many others. This led to thoughts about Forrest Ackerman and his magnificent collection of SF & horror props, including many by the master Kennen Stickfaden.

I am posing a YouTube video in remembrance of all those old, wonderful films that I grew up watching and loving. The video also shows H.R. Giger in his workshop and honors his seminal prop work in modern film and his tip of the hat to those who have gone before.

I also see that Kenneth Stickfaden’s Wikipedia article is very short and lacks photos of his phenomenal work. I challenge those fans who have Wikipedia accounts to expand his article and include photos of his wonderful props.

In keeping with the holiday cheer, I have posted this video for your amusement. I wonder what I will post for Dagon Day.

Happy Holidays To All Planets

Alien Annunciation Ikon

Since this is the Winter Solstice in conjunction with a major lunar eclipse in the holiday season, I felt some sort of seasons greetings was in order. I understand this particular astronomical grouping happens about every 500 years here on Earth. Its boring having only one moon.

This is an image by Michael W. Moses that he created in about 15 years ago. You can get more information by going to his site.
