Fright Club: Red Drum! Red Drum!

Heeeeere’s Drummie! Yes, faithful LDBCers, it’s the third in LDBC pal James Barnett’s Fright Club series, our shockingly sharable images based on classic horror flicks. (Just try his Alien and Exorcist work on for size.)

Here in round three, we see that some places are like people: some drum and some don’t. Please feel free to download and share tonight’s lovely Shining tribute.

And once again, keep in mind that Mr. Barnett is your man in Phoenix, Tempe, or Scottsdale for wedding photos and portraits.


Fright Club: Game Over, Man!

Yeah, I know I’m referencing James Cameron when I ought to be channeling Ridley Scott. I just like doing my Bill Paxton imitation.  As promised, here’s LDBC pal James Barnett’s second effort in the Fright Club series, our eminently sharable images based on classic horror flicks. (If you haven’t bathed in the beauty of his Exorcist take, you really should.)

This time, he brings us his retina-searing LDBC-angled interpretation of the classic poster for the aforementioned Scott’s Alien. Please download, share, or download and then share. We’re easy that way, friends.

As always, please don’t forget that Mr. Barnett is your man in Phoenix, Tempe, or Scottsdale for wedding photos and portraits.


Fright Club: The Devil Made LDB Do It

I’m damned glad to have met artist and LDBC pal James Barnett. (Don’t worry: in order to maintain balance in the universe, he’s very sorry he ever met me.) The man is a visual genius. Not only does he take wonderful wedding photos and portraits for those lucky enough to live in Phoenix, Tempe, or Scottsdale, and not only has he done some cool stuff with my novel, but he’s also a driving force behind some of my favorite Drummer Boy imagery. (A couple years back, he gave us the oft-used Drum Demon.)

Now he’s back and better than ever, contributing a wondrous series of sharable LDBC images inspired by classic horror movies. Being cruel generous as we are, we’re going to dole them out slowly so that you may suffer enjoy them as much as possible.

First up, an absolutely brilliant piece of work based on the poster from William Friedkin’s 1973 pea-soup classic The Exorcist. Please download and share the image, this post—whatever you wish. Let’s bring in as many friends, loved ones, and complete strangers as we can worldwide and really pollute enhance the holidays this year.


World Party: The Home Countries of LDBC Visitors

While the malevolent Boy remains mostly an American problem, judging by this visual representation of the countries people visiting our beloved site hail from, the problem has evidently spread around the globe to some surprising places.

Canada’s no surprise, certainly. We’ve been sending nuisances and outright disturbances northward for hundreds of years now, and they, in turn, send us their best and brightest hockey players. The Aussies aren’t much of a shock, either, considering they have a long tradition of welcoming outside threats (house cats) when they’re not actively restocking their supply of native monstrosities (saltwater crocodiles, anyone?).

But Indonesia? Pakistan? Ghana? Bhutan? Latvia? Who knew the rhythmic little creep has such range?

I’ll shut up and let the flags speak for themselves, but look alive, faithful LDBCers. Even in the most far-flung lands, that rat-a-tat rat may find you.
