OPENING THE FUCKING MIND!!!

IT IS CUMMING… Here is your first look into the madness of Opening the Mind!

When all is silent, one is creating… Brewing… Feasting… Conjuring… That radio silence is nearly ready to be shattered.

It’s been a long fifteen year journey, but closure is nearly upon us. To celebrate we are collaborating with Taboo Textiles in Canada to print an exclusive T-Shirt. Pre-sales are up in the magGot Store.

Those buying pre-sales will be thrown into a lottery to win something very, very magGoty. You will get an advance look into the mind of Adrian Simms. As well as gain access two weeks before the street release date to buy the film.

I have been editing this in secret for over three years. In hopes of surprising lead actor and magGot Family Man ERIC JAMES. We recently were able to catch up and I did indeed surprise him with a private screening. We are reaching the climax of this journey and it will close a massive chapter of my life’s work and nine in house features spanning twenty years.

Pre-sales are up for films that were previously sold out. The estimated dates of shipments will announced asap. It is time to start chanting for the magGot choir. We are hungry and anxious for blood… Dig in family… Let’s show them the Cult is alive and well!

magGoty Christmas Part 2

I hope everyone is having a very merry holiday! Spending it with those you’re closest too and taking in the small moments…

By far the most personal Christmas Special I’ve had the pleasure of dreaming up:

What looks to become another tradition is the magGot Christmas BOX! Pre-sales are up on the site, for Part 2! The last one was a hit and I wanted to carry on the tradition! Details are in the store, click HERE!

Christmas limited

May you have a very bloody and magGoty and Happy New Year!

The pre-orders of the Corner has shipped… Keep an eye!

There is an exclusive bonus dvd with the first 25 copies. The contents is a mystery, but boasts all things magGot. NONE of which has EVER been seen or released. Surely something any true fan would love to feast upon.

Also, the cover art was created by magGot for the original launch of magGot Corner within the CD-ROM publication The Meat Socket. This will also only be available with this first 25 copies.

Only a handful left…

Anniversary…

Reflecting…

Reflecting

I was working at Abraxas (a child rehab facility). During morning wake-up, we were given a heads up… For some reason, the counselors elected me to be the one to break the news to these troubled kids. Looking back, they were right. I was younger and even though I was blind to it, I had a strong rapport with them. I couldn’t tell you what I said to these kids, but the counselors were right in having me say what needed said. They watched me speak to them through the office windows. I was terrified. But the moment I had to speak, instinct kicked in. We had so much time to break the news, then we could turn on the TV sets. At this point, the counselors crept from the office with their jaws hanging. We had our own news station which we’d tune into during part of the morning. All morning errands and school were put on hold. Time stood still. We were one. A family. Americans. From this moment forward, we had an underlying kinship that lasted till I left Abraxus.

Later after things had somewhat settled and we were relieved to go about our way. After the hour drive back home. My buddy Eric James and I stumbled out shooting A Tribute to Sanity. He also worked there. So we were both working on no sleep and numb from the mornings events. The following day we shot the bar sequence in the film. It is extremely surreal because there’s a shot of a newspaper reading, ‘Terror Hits Home.’ All too fitting within the film, you’d think we’d printed it exclusively. But it was the real deal, the paper from our little town of Tidioute. Always a reminder of just how horrifying real life often is. As much as we imitate it, in hopes of swallowing its madness. We can never predict what lies around the bend…

Year SIXteen

Jesus is Strange

This past year has been a strange one. The long and arduous transition to a new magGot station has spanned many odd bumps. A road that was filled with a lot of mountains. Fittingly, I find myself atop of the city of Pittsburgh in Mount Washington. All things magGot are once again in full throttle.

There hasn’t been as long of a road block from completing this never-ending heap of work, since I started my journey. But the thing that’s now key, is that the work is enjoyable once again. Having firmly planted my feet in fresh soil. Traveling through the most absurd times this past year has opened many eyes, more then I knew I had. Yes, we can develop eyeballs in the back our heads.

As artists we can all too often except we are to suffer for our art. This couldn’t be any further from the truth. What this does allow is a struggle and a pure hate and love relationship with your very art form of passion. Often leading us to never-ending circles… chasing our own tales.

For three solid years I’ve battled a balance of taking care of my self and enjoying the art. This hasn’t been an easy transition. Having spent the majority of my life identifying with creative endeavors as something that pays back in pain. Rather then fulfillment.

I found stride in taking care of myself. But my art would suffer for it. When I would make a big dent in my art, my health would in turn take a beating. Finding a balance was not easy. I think it’s something everyone battles with. But for an artist this struggle is often a much harder synchronicity. We are our worst critics and self analysts.

The ‘final’ in house magGot production is 90 percent complete. Getting to a place where I had unhindered clarity to see it through good and proper has been key. But the fact that I have it in the can, is a huge relief. It’s a wild ride and one I can’t wait to share with the world.

There are many other releases upcoming. With the proper support and interest, they’ll continue dropping your way. Now that the magGot shop is fully loaded and chug a lugging.

The final journey to see all that’s been done through to the end. So we magGot’s ‘can break threw the wall to the other side.’ I personally have no plans on quitting. But the thing that folks must know is that I’m working on having my first clean plate since 2002. Something that has seemed an impossible feat for what seems a life time over. But the finish line is finely within my sights.

Nine features, tons of shorts. Countless works for hire. 13 years in the haunted house industry. Lots of creative endeavors. Getting the opportunities to take the stage, a long lost passion. Things are revitalizing what has felt like a candle burning down to it’s final hour.

For those reading this, I aim to begin writing on here more often. Sharing anecdotes and stories from set, life and all else. Shoot me a message with anything you’d like to hear about. The time is now with moving this magGot mechanism along to the finish line… and it’s a great chance to reflect. Share tidbits from the inside…

magGots BACK…

More news to come…but the magGot STORE is back up and running…set up in a brand new space and hitting the magGot Land hard…LOTS in the mix…

Here’s a lil tidbit to satiate the palette…stay tuned!

A very magGoty Christmas…

It’s that time of year again… that chance to take in all you care and love for. To be with your family, friends and loved ones. Of course… another annual tradition, the family friendly magGot Christmas Special. This year marks the seventh special, ending a tales journey… Both in life and screen.

While making this transition with relocating, I wanted to whip up something unique in celebration of magGots 13th anniversary creeping in. A limited package of magGot goodies all personalized, signed, numbered and wrapped in Christmas gift wrap. Pre-orders are up on the store and a release date will be announced once enough orders have been placed. The game plan is to ship some time in January…

The entire contents is under wraps (or else it destroys the Christmas surprise of course)… But it will contain all things magGot, nothing ANYONE has and what we do best…

Happy holidays!
