Update: domain names, Dread Central press, and stuff I'm enjoying this winter

Posted on Friday, December 5, 2014 by

HELLO FRIENDS. First things first, GIRLTERROR.COM IS A THING AND YOU ARE ON IT. My little horror blog is on a real life web domain. These are exciting times. Also, my email address has changed! To contact me regarding Girl Terror, you can find me at tiffany@girlterror.com! @GIRLTERROR.COM. I KNOW.

In other news, some of you may have seen my face pop up in this month's Dread Central subscriber email. This is definitely one of the coolest things that has happened to me ever, especially in the history of Girl Terror. Dread Central is one of my favorite blogs, and is among the most respected horror blogs on the internet. I feel so privileged to be part of the Box of Dread community and it was an honor to show up in this month's subscriber email. (PS: Did you subscribe for December?)


I also wanted to take this update to share a few of the things I've been loving lately.

1. Now Playing Podcast. I started listening to Now Playing when I was freelancing with Stila Cosmetics this summer. Commuting is a drag but listening to a bunch of real movie fans analyze horror movies (and action flicks, comedies, etc.) makes driving a little more fun. Sometimes I disagree with their "do not recommends," but I always laugh a lot and it's really interesting to hear other ideas about my favorite horror films and franchises. Now Playing is a free podcast (although there are additional podcasts and retrospective series for people who donate) and can be found on iTunes or at www.nowplayingpodcast.com.

2. Oh, just some shameless self promotion. I've been making pins a lot this week so wanted to share one of my favorites in the Girl Terror shop. These babies are $6 + shipping. Handmade with love out of wood and acrylic, and have a barback pin. 

3. "Duality of Laura Palmer" print from Dark Matter Artwork, $10. My friend, Richard Young, makes rad art and it's all quite affordable. I have an early version of this print and it's one of my favorites. He has plenty more cool prints in his shop, and also does commissions. (He's been known to paint some rad shoes.) Think of the great Christmas present options! 

4. Popaganda Podcast. It's no secret that I love podcasts. Popaganda is a podcast about pop culture and feminism by Bitch Media. They have some great feminist podcasts, but I especially enjoyed their podcasts about feminism and sci-fi, and feminism and horror films. These are an easy listen, totally free, and available on iTunes or at www.bitchmagazine.org.

What podcast recommendations do you have? (Spoiler alert: I already listen to Welcome to Nightvale!) Thanks for catching up with me! XOXO
