ya know? Let Stan have some fun. for all the fun he's given the world, and for what he's gotten in return, he deserves to have some fun. I'd pay him to make mud pies at this point. It's not like he's going to get rich for all the work he did.

I liked him when he sang for Timely Comics before he sold out and went solo.

That really cuts you up.

I've always loved Peter Murphy's voice and am a big fan of Stan Lee's, however, I can't bring myself to watch that.

I loved it when he used to hang upside down througout the entirety of  Bela Lugosi's Dead, I don't care what your musical tastes are, that's got damn SHOWMANSHIP folks .

since moving from Seattle to Orange, I have really missed Emerald City Comic con. My GF and I went to Comikaze on Sunday to check it out - not too bad. We spent most of the time in the artist alley. All the celebs on Saturay had already left, leaving only Joe Bob Briggs and Sybil Danning (which aint too bad!). Since activision was there, I was hoping for some heavy Skylanders promotion - maybe an exclusive figurine or 2! But it was all about the new Walking Dead.

As a fan of Peter Murphy: NO!

Sounds like a big ball of confusion to me.

/Yes, I know.

Saw that this morning and it made me wonder if I'd even woken up yet. Not really something I'd ever imagine Murphy doing. David J, yes. But not Murphy.

If I were Marvel, I would film Stan Lee doing hours of random goofy shiat in front of green screen. He's not going to live forever and those movie cameos need to keep happening

Yep!  Its an awesome version.  I don't like TV on the Radio, and the one time I saw them live at a festival they were horrid.  But they really nail it here.  (Not exactly a hard song to play, now.)

that was awesome squared...the only thing that could have made that awesome cubed, would have been Robert Smith on guitars

/Have some fun, Stan, you gave more to this world than most men could ever dream

I have a 2006-ish live radio instudio of Peter Murphy and NIN doing 4 Joy Division songs on the occasion of Ian Curtis' death-day.....actually....I'm not sure if that was the occasion but there are 4 JD songs in any event.

I forget the setlist but from memory

1) the really early JD song that starts "3 - 5 - 1 - 2 - 5 GO!"
2) dead souls
3) atmosphere
4) love will tear us apart

If interested, email.

For this I will forgive him for anything he does. Such a cool song!

Ah, Autumn, the right time of year to break out the Peter Murphy albums.

That first song would be Warsaw

I'm a big fan of Murphy & Bauhaus, but that was just... ugh.

Being a big music nut, and a fan of horror, Halloween is something I like to have a bit of fun with. We hang all kinds of creepy things outside, put a bunch of realistic fake tombstones in the yard with a freshly covered "grave" with a bloody hand sticking out... black lights, big strobes & all that kind of stuff. I have some DJ gear, so I rig a computer with sound effects & music playing through a powered EV speaker under the deck, and when the kids ring the doorbell, I or my wife emerge in costume from a thick cloud of eerie purple fog (750w fog machine and a black light cannon inside the front door) with the goodies. Rather than play the usual cheesy Halloween music on trick or treat night, I like to play good creepy stuff.

A couple of kids were walking up the street to my house when this song hit the 2:50 mark.

The kids stopped in the street, looked at each other, and turned around and left in a big hurry. Most of the kids think it's cool as Hell, tho.
