Shu on Mark at the Movies

I reviewed (REVIEW HERE) and trashed a movie review and news program (Mark at the Movies) hosted by Mark S. Allen, a radio dj/personality in Sacramento not too long ago and he contacted me and asked me to be on his show. I thought it was a prank or joke. I thought I was going to be (more…)

cms

Not too long ago, SHU-IZMZ had a chance to talk with owner and sole creator at CRIMSON MASK STUDIOS, Collin X Major,  in Logan Square, Chicago, IL where his mask-making shop is located. Those that have shopped in Bric-A-Brac Records may have not even known that deep down in the dark basement, tucked away in the corner, a very determined and talented young man is sweating away at making some of the most iconic masks in horror films.

SHU-IZMZ RADIO: COLLIN MAJOR of CRIMSON MASK STUDIOS

CRIMSON MASK STUDIOS

You may have noticed that SHU-IZMZ RADIO took a wee break from broadcasting here and streaming at CORE OF DESTRUCTION RADIO. I could say that I was hella busy, or I can just chalk it up to pure laziness–which it was. I decided to get off of my ass and interview a friend of mine who has started up a business of making masks for those who really dig horror films and things that go bump in the night! Myself a big fan of slasher films and horror films of all sub-genres, I thought it would be a great idea to jump back into radio broadcasting/podcasting with an interview with a dude whom I have known for a couple of years now, meeting him for the first time when he was working for the circus. Yeah, I know someone who worked in the circus. That itself is fucking cool! (more…)

shuizmz-talkradio595x595

What better way to spend a day some call the day of rest, but most of us pagans and non-church attending atheists like to spend it hanging around the house and relaxing.

Following  the review of BEAVER STREET: A HISTORY OF MODERN PORNOGRAPHY, I felt compelled to have a chat with the author, Robert Rosen, about his 16 dirty, dirty years working as a writer, editor, and…well…pornographer in the porn magazine industry. Readers of SHU-IZMZ know what affinity we have here for boobs, blood, and bush—while there isn’t really any blood in the porn-tastic memoir (not of the stabbing or slashing variety, anyhow!), all topics and subjects covered were extremely relevant for all parties interested.

Here is the download link for the interview, but I must warn you (more…)
