White Noise on Paper: Reve Ecarlate by Toshio Saeki Is Gonna Gouge Your Eyes Out!!!

Want to have waking nightmares? Want something that will make you want to rub your eyes with Brillo pads after viewing it? Than look no further than:

Toshio Saeki, is one of those creepy “Ero Guro” Japanese artists that paints or draws people and things being raped, eviscerated, sucked, shelled etc. in vibrant colors. This book is an anthology of 20 years of work that was first published in SM Selecto Magazine.

It starts with art from 1970 and ends with 1972, Saeki uses vibrant colors and his artwork is nightmare like he uses a lot of Japanese culture and mythology in his art, strained through a bat shit crazy mind.

Jean-Louis Gauthey the guy who put this book together put it pretty good “Each and everyone is convinced to find something they already know: Hiroshige’s precise stroke, Sade’s perversity, themes dear to Ranpo and Herge’s clear trait.” And yes as you can see De Sade’s perversity is sprinkled liberally throughout.

I even have problems de scrambling this visual white noise. It is sick but it is unique, it makes it almost even more disturbing the neon and pastel colors he uses and simple line form of drawing. There is a disturbing beauty in this stuff I find intriguing.

This is a warning to you some of you, maybe some of you like me have built a tolerance for audio and visual drugs, this book might make you overdose, it will empty your wallet and it isn’t cheap but it is well worth it for anybody who needs visual white noise in their lives.

So if you want to get a hold of a copy of this book, I got to warn you they are in limited quantities but the folks at Aka Tako have copies left, Aka Tako has other Ero Guro artists in its stable that I’ll have to eventually check out!!! To get it:


White Noise Eardrum Buster: Goat Majesty-Death Curse

Tape notes
In your ear!

This is some noise for your ears, addicts. Need your fix? Shoot this right into your ear drum, and you’ll be floating in golden blackness. This tape was put out by A.S.K.E (Anti Social Kultur England), the owner used to have a bandcamp page for all his artist’s releases, now he doesn’t and discogs doesn’t have the latest A.S.K.E releases. I’ve contacted the guy before, he is a very private person and like me doesn’t use giant platforms to promote his artists. That being said Goat Majesty does have a bandcamp page but not with this release on it. I had to get it through Analog Worship. I loved Goat Majesty on a dark ambient comp tape I scored awhile ago. When it comes to the “noise” genre of music my favorite is Dark Ambient, not a big fan of HWN (Harsh Wall of Noise) it sounds all alike to me. This tape is must have for fans of noise, nice dark drones, swirling synths and field recordings. You can listen to it here:

Support the artist and get the tape here while supplies last:

Goat Majesty’s bandcamp page buy some of their music there too:


Visual White Noise Theater: “Das Buch Der Blutigen Geschichten” translated “The Book of Bloody Stories” aka “Bloody Curse” 1987-1991

Alright folks, time to choke some German sausage down (that didn’t sound gay) made of Han Solo figurines, Barbie Dolls, black laser shooting zombies, drooling demons, burnt action figures and tons of red corn syrup. Sure some will say its bad for you but it tastes great going down and will most likely give you a heart attack.

Directed by Michael Kahlert and made over the span of 1987-1991 this is stop motion mayhem, a German gore movie made with figurines and miniature castles, its like a demented German kid decided to make a stop motion movie destroying his own figurines. I enjoyed every damn minute of it too.

I found out about this insane turkey reading about it in “Bleeding Skull”. Joseph Ziemba put it in one of his “Best of..” lists of 2013. So I set out to find yet another needle in a haystack. I am one of these people that loses sleep over stupid shit like obscure movies, books, music etc. I don’t lose sleep over politics, money, work etc. which shows you where my priorities are. The title “The Book of Bloody Stories” wasn’t popping up, even with its German title in any search engine. So in desperation I hit up Joe not expecting any response. He responded.

Zombie black laser attack!!!

Joe directed me to a web site called “Video Screams” and it was under the “The Bloody Curse”. That was one cool dude, normally when I ask people where I can find something I get no response or snark. Joe was very helpful, “Video Screams” is pretty awesome, they have a lot of stuff you aren’t gonna find elsewhere. Check them out and they have a search function on their web site. I’ll post the link at the end of this post.

Manikin head destroyed!!!

There is no spoken word dialogue any dialogue is shown with cards in German, no translation. I know a little German and the plot goes something like there is a cursed castle in Northern England called Gortswill where the owner lured two students into the basement and killed them. Apparently Satan built Gortswill and haunts it, numerous people have gone into Gortswill stop the evil only to be chopped up, burned up, decapitated or eaten by Godzilla demons. Background music is cheesy Casio synths and Library classical music.

Ka Pow!!!

So is this worth your time? Is it worth the money? Will it make you angry at me? All three will be answered with “yes”. I loved this world, it was like a train wreck, I couldn’t look away and you won’t be able to either. Some of you might fall asleep to this, some of you might sigh really deep and roll your eyes, some will smash their dvd/blu ray player to pieces, some will cream their pants. I did. Scroll down to “Bloody Curse” in the Extreme horror/gore section, get it…

Joseph Ziemba 2013 Exquisites list with”Das Buch der Blutigen Geschichten” translated as “Book of Bloody Stories”.

In closing this bit of white noise for the eyes is one hour fifteen minutes of stop motion insanity made over a period of four years and that is admirable. Stop motion requires a ton of patience, I know, me and my buddy had to make a stop motion movie for our grade in the elective class at my Junior high. Five minutes was how long our movie was and it was torture, I can’t imagine doing one that lasts an hour and fifteen.


Welcome to the static.

Come with me into the white snow, it comes in the form of audio chaos, visual thrashings, exotic off world smells, manipulation and mutation of the pores and weird tastes. Here it comes.
