BIll Zebub prepares a second Memoir

Bill Zebub had started a second memoir titled “Movie Maker and Madman” which was to be written as a cautionary tale for anyone interested in making movies, but he had received so many letters from readers of his first memoir “Fanzine Editor, Radio Host, and Movie Maker” that he decided to make this for them, specifically. One fan even said that she had laughed so hard that she had ruined her make-up, which is quite a compliment. The book will still be of interest to people who want to make movies, but it is primarily focused on the dedicated fans, and it goes far beyond the stories behind the scenes.

It’s not a book about Bill Zebub’s success. Who wants to read someone bragging about his accomplishments? No one. You get to see Bill Zebub make one stupid decision after another, and the big secret is that his success was simply random (in most cases). The man is a fool, and this book proves it.

Bill Zebub had not put much trust in the quality of photographs in books, so the first memoir did not contain any. However, pictures were required for his “Best of the GRIMOIRE OF EXALTED DEEDS” magazine. He was impressed with the high quality, and so he decided to provide photographs in the new memoir.

Dedicated fans will rejoice in a book that is as large as the magazine anthology, size-wise, but it will be at least THREE TIMES AS THICK! That’s right. It will have a minimum of 590 pages.

The most devoted fans will opt for the full color book, which will retail for about $75. A grayscale version will be offered for $50. It will not be available as a digital format because this is designed to be collectible. In fact, Bill Zebub will launch a Kickstarter campaign for this, with a chance that funders will get different versions of some pictures, but that has yet to be determined. There will be other perks, like high quality uncensored posters, 30-packs of his movies, shirts, and more.

If you are not on Bill Zebub’s list of supporters, you can Email him at bill@billzebub.com and ask to be part of the die-hards who receive these announcements.

If you cannot participate in a Kickstarter because you do not have a credit card, you can contribute with Paypal or a check (which go to the business/LLC, not to Bill personally, so he will not be tempted to engorge on limitless pumpkin pie).

Old – M Night Shyamalan

I will watch ANY movie by M. Night Shyamalan, and when I saw this Blu(e)ray on a store shelf, I bought it without needing to read the synopsis or anything else.
I do not regret having purchased this, but I do have questions and criticism, but before I delve into the dark, I want to repeat that I enjoyed watching the movie. The bonus material was also enjoyable, especially the exploration into Shyamalan’s filming style for this movie.

Before I get to the spoilers, let me state that there were some interesting situations that were created by the aging process, and there were some compelling group dynamics. I won’t spoil those.

SPOILERS

The more I thought about the movie, the more I poked at some holes. When I watch a movie, I want to be immersed in the world. I make a deal with the movie, as a viewer, to believe the rules of the story world. I do not watch as a critic.

The people who are on the beach are unable to leave, but wouldn’t that barrier make them unable to enter? I will watch the movie again to see if I missed an explanation, but I suspect that if there is one, it will be cheesy. For the story to work, people can only leave via a tunnel, an exit that will likely result in drowning.

The premise of the movie is that evil pharmaceutical people are experimenting upon unwilling recipients, which would never be allowed in the real world because of ethics (not a philosophy – it’s a part of the design of an experiment). Maybe there has been a fake story of how a medicine was discovered (that hides how a person being raped by an elephant produced the particular form of adrenaline… but the official reported story is that elephants that were rescued from poachers had blood tests, and the adrenaline that was produced while having a tusk removed proved to be an incredible medicine for humans).

The beach ages people very quickly. This is used to test medicine on a fast track, rather than waiting decades to see the result. In real life, experiments are performed on creatures that have short life spans because of the quicker results, but this more has to do with seeing many generations, like if you make a pill that increases dick size, would that altering of genetics have results down the lineage of the big-dicked creature?

Each doomed person (experimental rat) is given only ONE dose, disguised in an alcoholic beverage. Isn’t this silly? “Wow, we can examine what happens to a person throughout his entire life span from just a single dose.” In this movie, a woman was cured of epilepsy from a single dose. Well, relatively cured. I think she was estimated to have been cured for sixteen years.

The more I thought about the movie, the more I suspected that plot-points were forced and weak justifications were put into place to make the story flow according to the main ideas, with everything stitched up in a neat bow at the end of the movie, which came off as “contrived.”

I eventually came to the conclusion that this, like many works by the director (and others in science fiction) were enveloping their ideas in story-situations that expressed the personal idea (of the creator). Much material in movies in unrealistic, like fiery explosions in space, or blood spurts from a gun shot. Fiction can be realistic, but fiction is not meant to be a newscast of a real event. It is meant for the reader or viewer (or listener) to enter the world of the creator.

Changing my perspective made me look at the movie the right way – to enjoy the dream of Shyamalan, a dream experienced at Night. (Get it?)

Candlemass

This interview with Leif Edling appeared in issue #32

I talked to Messiah. I told him how godly his vocals were on the Nightfall album, and he made a face. This was just a conversation, not an interview. He said that he was told to relax the vibrato, but it was the vibrato that made him a god. Were you criticizing him?
When he made that face to you, I am pretty sure I know what that was. He didn’t like his singing on Nightfall. He went to a vocal coach between Nightfall and Ancient Dreams, so he got taught how to breathe. That is why his vibrato is too much on Ancient Dreams, personally speaking, of course. I really like how he sang on Nightfall. It was very natural. On Ancient Dreams, he was very proud of his vibrato, and he got many compliments. A lot of people I meet think it was exaggerated. During the Tales of Creation album, we told him to relax the vibrato, but Messiah being Messiah – he told us to fuck off. During the Chapter VI album, we told him again, and he told everybody to fuck off again.

I am happy to hear the reason for that face.
Yes. Now you can sleep (laughs).

There is a rumor that Messiah is extremely difficult to work with, and the relationship with the band has been nasty.
I don’t really want to go into details. It’s just the way he is. It’s like a bad marriage. You have your good days with him, but there are times when there are going to be major outbursts. It’s like walking on thin ice. It’s not easy when a person refuses to discuss things in the band. That’s a big thing for me. It’s a band, and I think you should listen to our guitar player when he says something, or when I say something. That’s just normal decency. Even if you don’t like what people say, you should listen. Something good can even come out of our drummer’s mouth (laughs).

Is Candlemass, at this point, a band or a project?
A band, of course. We looked for a replacement for Messiah because we wanted to go out an play.

Was the Leif Edling double CD your idea?
No. I was asked by GMR of we could do something like that. People really wanted to hear the Nemesis tracks (ed – Candlemass songs in which Leif sang), and there are lots of Abstract Algebra freaks who knew that we had a song that wasn’t on the album.

There were moments in the past when you sang live.
Messiah fucked up his voice in Baltimore. Maybe you went to that gig.

You play bass, but are you really a guitar player in your heart?
No. I’m a one-trick pony. I play some guitar, but never in Candlemass.

Have the rights been returned to you, like for the Nightfall and Ancient Dreams albums?
Oh yeah! That’s why we released the remasters with the bonus tracks. We tried to make the ultimate releases. I’m really proud of those.

Years ago, I asked Messiah if it were true that he fell through a stage while doom-dancing, and when you played in New York, he fell through the stage!
When he doom-dances, sometimes he really tries to break the floor. Being a big guy, and he’s really strong, he did that famous thing in New York.

I heard that, in Stockholm, if there is a dark-skinned person in school, it is forbidden to sing the Swedish National Anthem because it is considered racist.
Our immigrants, if you want to call them that – they think that we are stupid for not being more proud of being Swedish than we are. They think it is stupid that we cannot sing our national anthem with pride. I know that in some schools you cannot sing the national anthem, and that really pisses me off.

You shouldn’t be called a racist for having pride in your own culture.
Absolutely not. I am proud of being Swedish.

Slymenstra Hymen from GWAR

This interview with Slymentra Hymen was in issue #16

Since thou art a goddess, shall I be on my knees while I ask thee questions?
But of course. All inferior beings must be on their knees at all times, and that does include you.

My knees, although they are in pain, will be healed by the succor of they beauty.
(Laughs) That is right.

Thou hast coined the phrase “Abandon all hope, ye who enter her.”
That’s right. That’s what’s written over the gates of Hell. Dante wrote about me years ago.

All great works, intentionally mistranslated. Could it be that if the story were revealed to be about thy gates, that the meaning of the tale would be lost?
(Laughs) That is correct.

Other life forms have evolved lures that captivate prey.
Pheromones taking over the male body, forcing them to do things that they are unwilling to participate in.

Was thy body always of that form, or hast thou created such exquisite curves in order to trap men?
That is very interesting. You are finally understanding my plot!

I would like to by thy first disciple.
(Laughs) Oh really? How young are you?

I cannot reveal my age.
Then you will have to go to the back of the line!

I have a youthful body, my goddess, but no one can tell the age from my face.
Do you have little boy muscles near the groin?

I have often heard the adjective “little.”
(Laughs) Well, it will be even littler around me because I will chop it off.

Dost thou not think that thy manner hurts the female humans of this planet?
I think there are lots of problems on both parties.

Thou art not the first alien in GWAR. I was led to believe that thou wert the first human was absorbed into GWAR as a unit, not as a race.
I’m not a human. I am from the planet Clitosphere (spelling?).

Forgive me for my lack of knowledge.
That’s OK. My great mother was punished by her masters. They stole her first child and banished me to this insignificant planet. They were going to force me to sleep with the Scumdogs to create yet a more powerful warrior ever seen in the galaxy. I wouldn’t give in, thus the Scumdogs were forced to sleep with the apes, and thus your race was born.

Thou hast been quoted saying that we breed like roaches.
That’s right. The poisons that they put into the food don’t even help. It takes fifty years to kill you off with cancer and things.

Why is thy form so close to human then. Forgive me, for no human has thy perfection.
(Laughs) Well, you know… (laughs) Let’s see. How can I answer this one? I am not as glib as you, as glib as thee.

It is thy magnificence that moves my tongue. I am usually an obtuse man. How couldst thou reconcile the fact that beauty such as thine harbors an evil intellect?
It is this planet that has made me this way. Before, when I lived on my planet, all I did was worship others as myself, and read literature, and study the great arts, but here, I’ve had to learn and understand the art of war.

Were there any masterpieces that have long since been robbed of any connection to thee?
Oh yes, of course. All the great masters have painted me. Have you seen the painting Olympia, by Manet?

I have not.
Well that’s me. Have you seen Nike, from the Greek era? That’s me. There have been great statues made of me when I take the form of the great snake goddess.

I have heard that thou has appeared in front of crowds as the snake goddess ans sang to very unusual rhythms.
That’s right. It was very cool to pull that off in front of a GWAR audience, as moronic as they may be.

Yes, I have often felt that thy grace is lost on those who see thee only as a woman.
Only as a tit or an ass. It depends on what level of consciousness they have. Some people you just cannot teach.

Anyone can be drunk on a bottle of wine, butt for someone to appreciate fine wine, all its components and textures, that is another man.
That’s right.

Thy fans are also of this diversity. Few know of the subtlety of Slymenstra.
You, my friend, have figured it out. you make me very happy.

Art thou merciful to such as I?
I never thought that any man would truly understand me.

My intention is to make thee known to all in thy true form, and not as common wine.
You will be my humble slave.

I will do all that you ask.
(Laughs)

Thy voice is give a spotlight in the song “My Girly Ways.” Is it a privilege to sing an entire song thyself in GWAR?
It was a ten year struggle, but finally I was finally able to make it happen. I wrote all the lyrics myself, and the melodies. The way that it worked was, they sent me a tape out here in Hollywood – because I’m a big star – I live out here. I basically just showed up in a studio and I did it.

The operatic parts have caused my ribcage to resonate to thy voice. Wert thou trained?
I was trained vocally in the fifth and sixth and seventh grade, so that was the last vocal training I had. As all great women of my planet, we were cultured artistically. We went to many classes. We studied piano, voice, dance – all the great arts – drawing, painting. That’s what my parents were into, and it reflects now. I’ve been singing for years. I just love it. I usually sing in the shower, and people try to record what I am singing.

I certain there is another reason for them to sneak upon thee.
(laughs) They love to see the water barreling down my fruitful breasts and down my buttocks. And they love to see me rub almond oil all over my body to make my skin supple.

I must beg thee to desist, or I will lost consciousness.
(Laughs)

Hast thou ever experienced astral sex? Thou art a goddess, and the question is silly of me to ask.
Astral projection is something that I practice daily. I love leaving my body.

How could someone abandon such a vessel?
(Laughs) Well, when you come back to it, it’s no problem.

When thou first had left thy body, was it unplanned, or were you knowledgeable in the practice?
It was unplanned. It was natural. It is natural. It is natural for all of us. Unfortunately, through eating junk food and watching Jerry Springer, we’ve ruined our minds and closed off certain parts of our brain.

Wouldst thou say that most males are inept at pleasuring women?
Most are, but I believe there is hope, ladies. There are a few. I think they’re going extinct. You must help them. You must lead them. You must teach them.

There was a plot that was foiled. Leaving the earth.
Yes. Again we fail. That is because Oderus Urungus is always in charge. He thinks he knows. He’s gonna make the plan. He’s the big general. (Sighs). How many times can we make the same mistake?

I have been told that they sales of albums were never eyebrow-raising, but the sale of merchandise on tour is phenomenal.
Yes.

Thy voice is like the call of the sirens. I am compelled to jump into the sea and to die.
Matador beach? It’s this cliffy beach with rocks sticking out where I go to get a little mermaid action.

That’s where I will go to crush my body upon those rocks, the way thy absence crushes my heart.
I just love you.

Time grows short for us. I would rather leave wanting more of thee, than thee wanting nothing more of me.
Come and see me at a show, and introduce yourself to me. I want to meet you.

I shall do this.
Good.
