Tentacle Wrestling! Fuzzy Robots! Giant Flowers! Haunted Books! It’s all in the first episode of The Slow Poisoner Show, a fifteen-minute free streaming video that combines the creepiness of a late-night horror host with the kookiness of an early-morning kids’ show, plus a twist of anti-budget public access weirdness.
“Tentacle Spectacles” centers around a performance of the song “Rose (of the Tentacle Pages).”
This catchy number sports the chorus refrain “Mutant Sex Monsters, Rise Up and Take Over,” and serves as a homage to the Bizarro literary scene, including references to works by John Skipp, Kevin Donihe, David Barbee, and a whole lot of Carlton Mellick III.
The Slow Poisoner (alias Andrew Goldfarb) is an artist and musician based in San Francisco.
