THE KREEP GET’S LOST IN STEPHEN KING’S THE MIST

Posted in NEWS with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2008 by got2write

I read Stephen King’s The Mist on a lengthy train ride from Media, Pennsylvania (where I had delivered a trivial lecture on my latest book of poems Arsenic n’ Art,) to my lair in the city of brotherly love: Philadelphia. In short, The Mist really frightened me, as it had first-rate scares galore. It nudged, pinched, and stung my insecurities so that I had night sweats n’ nightmares for hours, days, and weeks to come. This was just a short story, dear fellow foes, you understand? Yet it held me in the grip of trepidation and woe. When it was then announced some 25 years later that award-winning film director Frank Darabont (The Green Mile and Shawshank Redemption) was giving it a go, well, I booked my seat well in advance. I was pleased I did so.

R. Productions & Static Multimedia Kreep-Out Social Networks

Posted in NEWS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 7, 2008 by got2write

R. Productions, a Chicago-based Branding + Media boutique specializing in social and viral media production have partnered with Chicago-based publisher Static Multimedia (a division of Static Networx) to present Gothic poet The Kreep in all new media formats.   Popular Ezine Static Multimedia will publish the syndicated column with a link to the iTunes Store which will offer the podcast download (a new poem about a classic horror film) for free.

The Kreep a.k.a. Brazillia R. Kreep is a forlorn Gothic poet that reviews films in epic verse.  Brainchild of actor/writer R. O’Donnell, The Kreep has made numerous social media appearances on Myspace, and  Twitter, along with entertainment blogs Brain Raves and Gothican.  “Take a dash of Vincent Price and a dash of Edward Gorey with just a pinch of Doctor Seuss and you might understand The Kreep’s sensibility,” says creator O’Donnell, “He loves the macabre, sure, but what is he really?  Big-hearted!”

The Kreep, which features weird epic poems amidst sprinklings of the latest horror film lowdown such as Sweeney Todd and Poltergeist is something Dull1 gets big-time, “I like all things horror, “ says the artist from a pay phone somewhere in Chicago, “because it’s a genre that I identify with. Growing up on creature features, Ed “big Daddy” Roth, and kung fu Sundays, the design elements were always elegant and striking and their use of color was reminiscent of 60s psychedelia.”

The Kreep can be found creeping around Staticmultimedia.com and on iTunes, with a new posting/podcast every Wednesday–if you dare to read and listen.  So what’s the future hold for The Kreep? “A book of children’s tales entitled Kreepy Bedtime Stories,” says O’Donnell with a smirk, “Something to put children to sleep akin The Brother’s Grimm, just like when I was just a squirt.”

R. O’DONNELL’S ‘THE KREEP’ KREEPS-OUT iTUNES w/THE ROT OF SWEENEY TODD

The Rot of Sweeney Todd

By

Brazillia R. Kreep

I’ve had several acquaintances like our odd Mr. Todd, but they never hovered in my life very long. They always had somewhere else to go–in a hurry–that I often thought they were bigwigs in some dark commerce or the arts, surgeons or maybe even lawyers at the least. So that when they changed their addresses, my letters to them returned unopened, I assumed they sold their properties and were living off another adventure across the salty seas. Actually, that’s not all together fair. One letter, from a Mac Z. Thumb was returned t’me, opened, with a perfectly formed bloodstain and a smear or two on the flap–a lovely souvenir. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is one of those shady characters. He has a past that would toss you about at night. Your fingernails gauging the bedpost in the moonlight for fear you might never sleep t’dream again. T’is good t’

pity and fear the man.

The history of the Barber of Fleet Street is as long a winding road as any title character has ventured. Todd himself first appeared in 1846 as a villain of a popular “penny dreadful” (so coined because of the cost & the content) magazine serial entitled The String of Pearls. It was a hit. In 1920 he surfaced on the boards in a melodrama penned by George Dibdin-Pitt simply entitled Sweeney Todd. Then our Mr. Todd made several film appearances in English fare until he landed back on the boards in an American Broadway Musical, music and lyrics by the Great White Way icon Stephen Sondheim. That production transformed the dastardly Todd into a forlorn anti-hero instead of the murderous robber he truly was. Who could complain, really? It starred two titans of the stage Len Cariou as the deranged Sweeney and Angela Lansbury as the scene-stealing, love-starved Mrs. Lovett. And fun was had by all. Sweeney has seen several stage revivals until the Demon Barber waited patiently to be brought back to life by a super star, pretty-boy, actor extraordinaire named mister Johnny Depp–

thank you very much. 

A Gothic treat, a naughty piece of eye candy that seldom disappoints, Mr. Burton’

s blood ballet is a lovely slice of art. It is not the penny magazine or the stage play or even the musical it was based upon, but an entirely new beast. A terrifying opera with fangs where Depp sings his bloody heart out. He holds it up for all to see, still beating, dripping crimson-goo as he rock-stars all over the celluloid screen. Wonderful. See it on DVD in a Deluxe set with all the pomp and circumstance affordable for the price. Just remember to pay homage to a villain on equal footing as The Ripper, play it at the witching hour with the lights out, a few candles burning around the house. A glass of red wine, a potpie perhaps, and, oh yes… there will be blood. 

THE ROT OF SWEENEY TODD 
In the attic there he trots
Sweeney Todd connives n’ plots
Of ways t’spill the blood of men
Then splatter more t’say amen 
T’nightmare’s of his great love lost
Aught t’avenge at any cost
Sharp razor blades
Meat Pies in spades
The Demon Barber preps n’ shaves 
While Mrs. Lovetts bakes her pies?
Tongues t’thumbs wee toes n’ eyes?
Though a price this Todd will pay
Sweltering pails of blood t’weigh
T’pour them over frozen heart
T’thaw they pain t’dare depart
From bloody attic in the sky
T’down below were demon’s fry
T’devil’s purge by fires hot
Fore’er our Sweeney Todd will rot
