GIFT GUIDE: Ghost Cult’s Holiday 2020 Gift Guide


Alcohol

The best Christmas gifts are the most useful ones. Slapping a bow on a bottle of Jack is the easiest gift you can give a metalhead. The great thing about it? Even if they have a preference, they aren’t going to turn down free alcohol. Type any brand and the words “gift set” into Google and you’ll find something. However, premade gift sets have a tendency to be overpriced and generic. You’re better off grabbing an empty box and filling it up with a variety of airplane bottles. It’s kind of like a box of chocolates—But booze.

REVIEW: New York Comic-Con 2018


Ghost Cult invaded New York Comic Con for the first time ever this year and it was, in a word a spectacle. It was a feast for the senses, except the olfactory. The only downside to the entire weekend besides the swarm of people like squiddies in The Matrix was the smell. The smell of movie theater butter popcorn, no doubt delights most people like a childhood memory burned on the brain. To me, it is vomit inducing in mass quantities and there was not one corner of the Javits Center that was not baked in this smell. Other than that is was a perfect combination of geeks, artists, and Cos-players and superfans. Comic-Con is vast and exhilarating. It’s incredible and a little scary to be honest. It was amazing overall. Continue reading
