Road Trippin’

Turntabling is back from a fantastic road trip to Toledo, Ohio and Flint, Michigan to set up the Turntabling booth at the Flint Horror Con, which was the very first ever and one hell of a good time.

The Flint Horror Con people did it 110% right and really went the extra mile–I highly recommend checking this show out the next time it’s run as it was top-notch. Good people, great venue, a really good experience all around. Sadly, I missed all the films because I was running the Turntabling Booth (with much help from my good friend Jeff Runokivi, who had to endure vinyl junkie talk all weekend long–thanks, Jeff!)

The people who attended the show were awesome too–highlights of the show included an appearance by someone wearing a Count Chocula costume (See below) and the man-nun made my weekend.

I met plenty of great people including Glen Birdsall, who’s working on a poetry volume of work inspired by Italian slasher films, Lucifer Fulci who’s a horror novelist and musician, and illustrator Roger Scholz who has some really great Dr. Who-inspired poster art among many other things. And it’s always great to see artist and one-of-a-kind horror t-shirt designer Steven Bejma, who has an amazing collection of oil paintings and tees–high quality stuff.

Thanks to everyone who visited the Turntabling booth, talked shop about cool records, and supported the site by purchasing some of our rarities and hard-to find titles in The Turntabling Collection. You awesome people are the ones responsible for keeping this site going year after year and I couldn’t do it without you.

There’s plenty of catching up to do around here and much prep for the last Turntabling booth appearance of the year  this November at Horrorhound Weekend in Cincinnati. Details on that coming soon…plus an announcement promised last week that I STILL need to deliver on…stay tuned, there are interesting things in the works at Turntabling!

Turntabling Appearances Up Next: Flint Horror Con 2011 Flint, Michigan

Turntabling brings the vinyl to the Flint Horror Con in Flint Michigan on Saturday October 29, 2011. If you haven’t seen the Turntabling Collection at Horrorhound Weekend, Cinema Wasteland, Dark Carnival Film Fest or Horror Society events, now’s your chance to get a load of the rare, obscure, lustworthy and hard-to-find vinyl records and CDs that make up the Turntabling Collection.

At this one-day horror festival, Turntabling will have all sorts of vinyl and CD insanity including out-of-print titles by Goblin, John Carpenter, Skinny Puppy, Coil, Legendary Pink Dots, Demon, and many many others. You’ll find plenty of great stuff to pore over at the Turntabling booth and the many other vendors at the show.

This is the very first horror con in Flint according to the ads, and the response to the show has been really amazing–so much so that the film festival itself had to close the submissions down because so many entries had come in.

If you live near the show, come by and say hello–we’d love to see you at the Flint Horror Con! It”s at the Masonic Temple at 755 S, Saginaw Street in Flint, MI. Join us! Doors open at noon.
