A few months back I was asked to be part of a music video for the song “Take My Chances” by No Volcano, a Phoenix-area band. Directed by Troy Farah, who had previously turned my poem “The Doom that Came to Manhattan” (a Trump campaign commercial/Lovecraft short story mashup) into a music video. Since I had a lot of fun doing that, I said: “Why not?”. Here’s the finished product:
I think it turned out great. I play two roles: Dr. Strangelove (no relation) and the Dark Lord (no relation). If you ever wanted to see Phoenix author, actor, playwright and general gadfly fight – this’ll probably be your only opportunity!
Glasses by Spider Jerusalem, tie by sharks, labcoat by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. Craft services I believe was by Papa John’s.
Off to get my SAG card.
