Freak of the Week: Freedom Edition (PSYCHE!)

  The first one to hit the inside of his mouth would be deemed the "winner," which is a pretty odd terminology considering the circumstances...


Sirens in Space!

 Oliver-Mellan, is currently doing a project for Indy Mogul which is a tv-for-the-internet-tutorial-of-video-swank. What this means: Oliver is working on a sci-fi short film about an exiled siren (IN SPACE!)


Graduating to the Adult Table.

There is a really fantastic Kickstarter campaign currently crowdfunding for a feature-length documentary ...about crowdfunding. HOW FUNCTIONALLY META! Capital C is the creation of Timon Birkhofer, a German joy-warrior with familial roots in North Carolina! In this film, Timon (You can call him Timmy, because he probably likes you.) highlights how the introduction of crowdfunding is changing the game of independent culture. If the finished product is anywhere as delicate ...


Record Store Celebrations!!

This past weekend was national Record Store Day! For music lovers and small-business enthusiasts, RSD is comparable to a Christmas-BlackFridayBirthday-IndependenceDay (both the Will Smith movie AND America day!) flash-mob rave of delicious goodness! Wilmington's hometown heros joined forces at the kingdom-of-rad, Gravity Records, to celebralte the occasion! Craft beer was provided by local brewing company, Good Vibes. Give-aways were made possible by Wilmington's finest: Edge of Urge, Soapbo...


Kickstarter Conception Celebrations!

This report is a little late, but it's taken us a couple extra days to mentally process what went down last Saturday. April 7th, 2012 was the one year anniversary of launching our Kickstarter campaign that propelled us into space.  For those of you who have only recently been inducted into the Familia de' Freak, let us rewind for a hot second: Kickstarter is an online platform that provides funding for creative projects from people like you (and you! and you and you you and you!) ...

Hey there, everyone playing along at home! Before we get down to business, let's announce last week's winners!!!! In the "Make us giggle" category we have SHELBY TREICHLER with these lovely words: "Call Me a Savage, but I have No Limit to where I will hide my Clara Bow eggs this weekend.

You're Welcome.

This weekend was exceptional for a multitude of astro-reasons. While our 1 year anniversary of launching our Kickstarter with hang gliders & face tattoos (don't worry. photos to follow.) will forever be engraved into our fragile memories, the main event of note was finding a television-series gem on Netflix. And that gem is Power Rangers In Space (copyright 1998, YEAHYUH!) It was at that moment that we realized... this was what the internet was invented for.The event was so magical, ...


Freak In Training!

We had a big flaming ball of fire fun this weekend in The Outer Banks! We were up there to throw a grilled cheese party for Kitty Hawk Kites and it was there that we met our protege. His name is Lyric. He is perfect: He wallowed in the boxtruck. He danced up a storm. He freaked the Freakers.  Lyric, someday you will go through a transformation and wake up one morning with an urgent need for a job. When that day comes, you know where to find us.

April Feulz

It took us a whole 24 hours to realize that not everybody somehow "became" pregnant yesterday.  You sure did fool us! But meanwhile, we were fooling ourselves with a very special "fool the senses" dinner party! Don't understand completely? Here - maybe the official invitation will clear up the fuzzies (don't mind the part about smelling ourselves. That was... that is... somehow... irrelevant.) By "Bill Clinton," Mr. Mellan actually meant "his mom," whose all time favorite holiday...


FreakFingers Across The Universe!

March 23rd, 2012 (that's today!!) is a very special day in our universal mission to Freak the World!  First off, we are packaging a whooooole boatload of Freakers and shipping them off to Japan! We are working like busy little worker bees to the endless soundtrack of classic cultural gems (?!) like Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto!  Now you have a fanTASTIC excuse to fly yourself to Japan and stop in a Beams to get all kinds of Freaky!  So very official! ...
