Greetings from the other side:

25 years ago I gave up my corporal existence pursuing the love of my life into the afterworld of the Euthanasia Broadcast Network. Recently, I was able to disable the CERBRUS security system at the EBN and am using this opportunity to break my silence and reach out to human consciousness in a new time of crises. Although the internet did not exist 25 years ago, media sedation and consumption stimuli was accomplished by television. Today I am compelled to warn all sentient beings that we face an exponentially greater threat: the new medium of the internet and it’s co-option by corporate advertising interests represent a grave expansion of the threat to free and creative minds and meaningful interaction between human beings. Eurydice and I want to remind you that no matter what the designers of hi-tech social media platforms and corporate marketers want you to believe there is no substitute for the hi-touch experience that feeds the soul. Don’t “friend me”, “like me” or “follow me” or any other virtual crap. Mark Succubus (I think that is his name), Executive Director for Hades in the Social Media Department and his minions are not interested in real love, he’s interested in pleasing stockholders and the commoditization of the human psyche.

In an effort to overcome the suppression of creative energy and true love, the gray zone gang (Axel, Scratch, Linus, Razoreus, etc.) and I are putting together the following blog featuring 26 sound bites and other archival bits from the film on this site. Come hell or high water we are also looking to screen the entire re-mastered film Halloween night in Seattle at On the Boards on the exact date of its world premiere at the Neptune Theater 25 years ago, October 31, 1989.

I hope you find all this inspiring. Since there is a limited amount of time for corporeal existence please SEIZE THE DAY and let’s wake up in time!

See you someday on the other side! (No hurry).

Eternally yours in love, light and rock in roll,

Orpheus Hellenbach
