Enslaving Television, The Media, The City...
The Lovely Ms. Monster Conquers All!
Ah, yes. We do love our Ms. Monster here at the Isotope!
Many of you already know our favorite blue-skinned beauty who has been a multi-time featured Isotope guest star during our Eric Powell's Monster Mash-Up party and from our world premiere Hel On Ice screening or from hosting her annual Shock It To Me filmfests at the Castro Theatre.
For those of you who don't already know this vivacious vixen, well... that's about to change. Like the hundreds of hungry TV execs, cigar-chomping Hollywood producers, and garden-variety barflys before you, you too will soon fall under the intoxicating spell this captivating cadaver of inescapable enchantment weaves.
Of course, we here at the Isotope are going to do our part by throwing a Halloween party with her, the best band in the city, our friends at The Onion, and B-Minus Comics... which is shaping up to look like the SF Bay Area Halloween event of 2007. Mark your calendars!
But even more exciting is how Ms. Monster is laughing all the way to the blood bank recently as a contestant on the not-yet-aired Search for the Next Elvira TV show. Will the blue-hued horror hostess take the crown or will she flame-out along with the other hopefuls? Not even we know!
But what we do know is that the first episode of this show is available in advanced form on iTunes, right now before this show's premiere on the 13th... and it's absolutely 100% free of charge! Go, download now, people!

Help Cartoonist Dame Darcy
Find Love with Flavor Flav
Dame Darcy - animator, bluegrass musician, doll-maker, actress, vaudeville performer, and author/artist of the brilliant Meatcake, knows what it's like to feel the love. Everyone from Alan Moore to author/activist Margaret Cho to Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore have been known to sing her praises... but it's not enough for the self-proclaimed "biggest showoff on the planet."
... apparently the love she really wants is of the gold-tooth and large clock wearing kind!
She's entered herself into VH1's Flavor of Love show where contestants live in a guady mansion and are put through various silly challenges in the hopes of winning the affections of Public Enemy's famous hype-man Flavor Flav.
So people... let's all do our part to make Dame Darcy's dream come true, place your vote for her here!
