Gravedigger's playlist of Doom


The Gravedigger is sad and morose. He is not the Undertaker, nor is he the Gatekeeper or the local ghost. Those three have tea parties by headstones and take breaks in coffins, exchanging stories with the dead. But, his only purpose is to carve the rut in which corpses are to be dropped. A job of little importance, which anyone could do and is seldom taken seriously by a single soul. He can be found wandering under the churchyard's weeping willows, swaying to his favorite tunes, radio in hand. Here is the Gravedigger's playlist of doom:

Christian Death - Romeo's Distress (Only Theater of Pain 1982)

Xymox - Craving (Twist of Shadows 1989)

Rasputina - Doomsday Averted (Fustration Plantation 2004)

Lydia Lunch - Suicide Ocean (13.13 1982)

Killing Joke - Love Like Blood (Laugh? I nearly bought one! 1990)

The Horrors - Mirror's Image (Primary Colors 2009)

Faith and the Muse - Willow's Song (The Burning Season 2003)

The Deadfly Ensemble - The Anatomist (An Entire Wardrobe of Doubt and Uncertainty 2006)

Cinema Strange - Tomb Lillies (The Astonished Eyes of Evening 2002)

The Chameleons - Soul In Isolation (Strange Times 1986)

Bat For Lashes - Horse and I (Fur and Gold 2006)

Android Lust - God in the Hole (The Human Animal 2010)

The Bolshoi - Waspy (Friends 1986)

A surprise in the making

Dearest users of the internet,

I am working on things. One of them is a surprise from the crypt. You will probably never guess what it is, and if by the luck of a wild leprechaun, you do, make sure to sit in a corner wearing the cone of shame. Still, I could not help but draw a little thing regarding the dimension of cyberspace.

Dear Grim Reaper > Death Inc. > Page 4

"Where are your parents?" a large bearded police officer asked.

"At work. If you want to call my Dad here's his number," she handed him a card. Madison had been in the office for over two hours, and was waiting on her aunt to pick her up. The officer glanced at the card without reaching for it, instead picking up the receiver to dial her aunt's cell number one more time. In a 'speak of the devil' instance, a tall slender woman in a large ankle length fur coat stepped into the dim room.

In the Making





The next page of Dear Grim Reaper is on its way! The beginning of supernatural action, this one is more packed than the others, and has a comic panel as well. All it needs is some typing up and color filling. Stay channeled folks.

Coming Soon

I am very busy at the moment, but since this blog allows the expression of so many pent up ideas, I'm doing my best to devise a plan to stretch time and produce content. Experiments are flourishing, plenty of which contain creepy undead things, hopefully to your inner zombie child's liking. Here is what's on the menu:

- Cutouts and freebies, purely for your enjoyment and straight from the Crypt
- A new page of Dear Grim Reaper, complete with more visuals
- Fresh recipes of ultimate doom, for all your 2012 apocalyptic celebratory needs
- A new section entitled "The Dollhouse"

Stay tuned you creepsters!

IAQ


It's time for an IAQ. Questions that you are most certainly not asking yourself, or inquiries you most likely have buried in your subconscious but do not feel like addressing, will appear in this first session of Infrequently Asked Questions. Let us note that this can also be read Inquiries And Questions, Infinite Answer Quest or for a touch of whimsy, I Am Qurious. Let us begin...

Q: How often does Undead Machinery update?

A: As often as I have time. This is a side/ pet monster project, so I usually work on stories and activities between my main creations. I needed a place to put all of the extra ideas festering in my head, lest they go on a rampage, so this blog originated from that.

Q: Who or what are you?

A: A human being. More specifically, an individual of the geek species. My main focus in life lies in the creation of comics, absorption of information, technicalities, art and basking in freakiness.

Q: Human! What type of activities do you offer here 'human'?

A: This blog features stories, recipes and Do It Yourself activities for living freaks and undead geeks alike. It is more fun than a sticker book.

Q: Is this thing for kids?

A: Hold your headless horses man, this blog can get a wee disturbing for younger viewers. While many a child is insensitive to gore these days, it is best you keep your Wednesdays and Pugsleys under supervision when it comes to the Bedtime Stories. The Brain Food and Crafts from the Crypt sections are fairly family friendly.

Q: What are the 'trigger warnings' in the stories section?

A: Some people get triggered (feel beyond uncomfortable with certain subjects), and a warning is required to prevent this from happening. Undead Machinery's Bedtime Stories have the following warnings: epilepsy (files labeled .gif), mental illness (depression, eating disorders, etc...), suicide and graphic violence.

Q: When is Depression Bunny going to update?

A: Bunny and I had a discussion about that. I am currently writing drafts for several short strips, and will release them as soon as I am mentally prepared. It is one of those projects that I greatly enjoy, but is stemmed from the unwanted side effects of tormented artist's syndrome. Consequently, the ideas come in bouts, at most unwelcome times and usually result in a period of painful cerebral contortion.

Q: May I speak to the Reaper please?

A: Yes, you can cyber mail him here: deargrimreaper@gmail.com

Q: If I disagree with something you've said, done or you have offended me, what should I do?

A: Send an email with the subject titled 'Complaints', along with a message describing the issue and your feelings towards it to undeadmachinery@gmail.com

Q: I am an artist too, can I tell you about what I do without having to wear the cone-of-advertising-shame?

A: Sure! As long as it is not spam, and purely conversational feel free to contact the adress above. For those located in an alternate dimension, please take into account the time and space lags.

Q: Will I be able to ask you more questions?

A: Yes, anonymous-person-I-have-created-whose-sole-purpose-is-to-provide-information-to-viewers-via-question-and-answer-format, you will be able to place more inquiries in the next session of IAQ. For now, I have mortal things to attend to. Go make trouble elsewhere foes, I will be seeing you later!
