Throwing it back to one of my favorite projects ever for this #throwbackthursday. This was the largest run of figures I ever did, and it was the first original sculpt I ever created. I'm still amazed at how much people enjoyed them. Also, Mark Borchardt was absolutely one of the nicest dudes I've ever met in my life. Working with him made this project so fun. #coven #markborchardt #resintoys #resinart #resinempire #customtoys #indiemovie #indiehorror #indiefilm #arttoys #toycollector #toypics #actionfigures #americanmovie #toymaker #resintoy #toycommunity #horrormovies #horrorcollector #autographed #toyworld #toyhoarder #actionfigurecollection #collector #instatoys #toystagram #deathbytoys

Thank you to everyone who bought a Coven figure. All 85 have sold out. The remaining 15 are reserved for some conventions/sellers. Domestic orders have started shipping and will be finished this week hopefully. International peeps will be handled by this weekend or early next week. Thanks again everybody. You people are my collective hero. #coven #markborchardt #indiefilms #indiemovies #indiehorror #americanmovie #resintoys #resinart #toymaker #toypics #toycollector #toystagram #vhs #vhscollector #toyworld #resincasting #actionfigures #actionfigurecollector #toyseller #deathbytoys

The last couple weeks have been pretty good. Some New Deal upgrades and the three in the middle for the sealed shelf. 20 Shot needs no intro and was the second to last World video I'm missin (if anybody got a New World Order they dont want, get at me) and the first Neighborhood video has a pretty legit soundtrack with some fuckin Animals! Also found the EST dvd that RB hates, which I cant bring myself to hate, solely because it starts off with a great Pepe tribute. I still haven't solved the mystery of the Sub Zero with some music missin, but I'm seriously diggin the EE Zero vibe it has. And Coven's one I've been lookin for since I first seen American Movie back in the day. The second best part of Spring this year is gonna be gettin drunk and watchin that one with Mike Mish finally! #skatevideo #skateboarding #subzero #neighborhood #newdealskateboards #worldindustries #markborchardt #dank #vhs #vhscollection #bones

Having recently watched the Fyre Festival documentary on @netflix it reminded me of Chris Smith’s over great documentary “American Movie”. It is the scariest documentary about filmmaking ever made exploring the fine line between creativity, passion and delusion. Between genius and madness. A very fun watch but very close to home, too close for comfort track this down and see it. #fyre #fyrefestivaldocumentary #chrissmith #markborchardt #americanmovie #netflixmovies #documentary #filmmaking #filmmakinglife #indiefilm #coven

So here's a long story: on our RETURN OF THE LIVING BRICKBATS record, there's a song called "Scream Queen," which was originally written sometime in the late '90s, but both the demo and original lyrics were lost. When we decided to piece it back together from memory, the new lyrics (specifically the 2nd verse) wound up touching on the no-budget horror movie-making exploits of #MarkBorchardt in #AmericanMovie. Later, after the record came out, of course we found the original demo cassette AND the original lyrics. The original "Scream Queen" was much faster (surprise!) and the lyrics featured a reference to actress #FayWray - pictured here in The Vampire Bat, which came out the same year as King Kong (1933). She died in 2004 and we don't think we ever would have guessed that she was alive when we wrote the song the first time. Oh, the batch of tracks we're finishing now includes a 2018/2019 recording of the *original* version of "Scream Queen." Did that make any sense? Have a great Saturday. * #undeadrockandrollmusic #TheBrickbats #90sgoth #gothgothgoth #horrorpunk #deathrock #NYCgoth #oldassmovies

AMERICAN MOVIE (1999): “They’re makin’ a mockery outta my words, man.” The 5th new/new to me movie I’ve watched this year. What an experience. My husband introduced this to me by describing Mark Borchardt as the midwestern Tommy Wiseau. A Wisconsinite that lives well-below the poverty line, Mark is dead-set on finishing his low-budget horror movie (already several years in the making). The two main subjects are something out of a Christopher Guest movie. Truly remarkable, one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. I can see why Roger Ebert gave this 4/4. A must-see, no hyperbole. “Kick fuckin’ ass, I got a MasterCard!” #currentlywatching #moviereview #moviereviews #cinephile #americanmovie #markborchardt #mikeschank

Man, I'm glad director Mark Borchardt got this group shot of us in Houston. I was too busy living in the moment and trying not to get a staph infection to snap any photos of me hanging out with these amazing people. "Hey, let's get a selfie," never crossed my mind. Did I mention that I was trying to avoid a staph infection? But I'm good with this one. It says it all. Well, it says most of what I'd like social media land to know! #marzimontazeri #kylethomas #markborchardt

Sup macheteers! This #fridayrecommendation is American Movie. A 1999 documentary about a true american dreamer. His dream? To make a movie in his hometown Milwaukee. But in order to do that he needs to finish his horror shortfilm 'Coven' first. But he has no money, not much of a talent nor professionals assisting him. Only weird friends and family will try to help him because somehow, they believe in him. This is a funny, sad, inspiring and somethimes pathetic journey led by it's creator's passion for cinema and great charisma. You truly wants him to succeed. Will he? // Que tal macheteros, la recomendación de este Viernes es American Movie. Un documental de 1999 acerca de un verdadero soñador americano. Cual es su sueño? Realizar una película en su pueblo natal de Milwaukee. Pero para lograrlo debe primero finalizar su cortometraje de terror 'Coven'. El problema es que no tiene dinero, estudios, mucho talento ni profesionales que lo asistan. Lo que si tiene son amigos y familia que lo tratarán de ayudar porque, de alguna manera creen en él. Este es un viaje divertido, triste, inspirador y a momentos un tanto patético. guiado por la pasión que nuestro protagonista siente por el cine y su gran carisma. Uno quiere realmente que lo logre. Lo conseguirá? #wearemachete #AmericanMovie #Documentary #MarkBorchardt #FilmIndustry #filmmaking #productioncompany #indiemovie

Got totally bombed at Cinema Wasteland a few months ago and thought I scored a copy of Piranha in the big stack of tapes I picked up. Got even more bombed after that. Turns out I was so bombed I didn't realize I bought the remake. It's pretty much non-stop death scenes but still isn't great. It's not even really that good. It's got Tommy from The Who and Carrie , that lady from Baywatch who's really tall, and Mila Kunis makes her film debut. It also has Leland Orser , which I thought was kinda cool. Not sure if anyone else thinks that cool. This remake isn't that cool. Is that really what you wanna do with your life? Suck down peppermint snapps and buy copies of the Piranha remake? That's senseless! But that's what happens, man. 🐟 🐟/ 🐡 🐡 🐡 🐡 🐡 #ratherbewatchingamericanmovie #markborchardt #mikeschank #kenmotherfuckinkeen #piranha #remake #vhs #moviereview #williamkatt #alexandrapaul #darleencarr #milakunis #lelandorser #montemarkham #nicename #not #shiteater #shithouse #deathtotheshittersoftheworld #ratherbewatchingchristine #fanboat #summercamp #deadinthewater #snoozer #asleepatthebeach #cinemawasteland #gettingbombed #learningtolovethebomb

Day 8: Instrumental Album Coven soundtrack I still can’t believe this even exists. If I ever had to make a list of my top 5 favorite movies, American Movie would be real close to the top. The absolute legends over at @forevermidnight_podcast decided it would be a good idea to fund the release of the soundtrack to the greatest movie to not rhyme with “oven.” It’s alright, it’s ok.
