Here’s a preview of tomorrow nights’ episode entitled “#6″ of CBS’ “Criminal Minds” guest-starring Erin Cummings.
“Hothouse Bruiser” is a Noir/Pulp/Crime, Sex and Blood-soaked audio drama from sci-fi television writer Joel Metzger. (Xena, The Outer Limits, The Dead Zone, Sliders, and others). Imagine a Future-Noir world like “Blade Runner” — by way of time warp from the Golden Age of Radio. The series features voice talent from a slew of sci-fi actors including:
Traci Lords (Blade, First Wave, Cry Baby), Claudia Christian (Babylon 5, Hexed, The Hidden), Armin Shimerman (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), John Billingsley (Star Trek: Enterprise, True Blood), Denise Crosby (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Pet Cemetery), Cliff Simon (Stargate: SG-1), Vanessa Angel (Weird Science), Michael Welch (The Twilight franchise), John Terry (Lost), and Jim Storm (the original Dark Shadows).
This audio journey of the imagination uses state-of-the-art sound design to submerge the listener in the strange world of “The Hothouse” – a glass-walled quarantine that seals in all of downtown LA. Inside this urban bubble, with the normal world peering in, is a gritty, violent, hyper-capitalist techno-jungle – equal parts George Orwell’s 1984 and Frank Miller’s “Sin City.” The listener follows “Bruiser” (voice of Paul Nobrega) as he digs up the city’s underbelly in classic Film Noir detective style. Life is cheap in the Hothouse… but dull, it ain’t.
You can hear the entire series on the free phone app for the iPhone and Android platforms. It’s also available on CD sets through the website.

Not only will HEART be inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month, they will also be touring the U.S. this year!
“HEARTBREAKER TOUR”with special guest Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience
LOS ANGELES, CA – March 11, 2013 — 2013 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, HEART, will take their critically acclaimed live show on the road this summer with very special guest JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE. Ann and Nancy Wilson first met Jason Bonham, son of famed Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham, when they performed “Stairway to Heaven” together at the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to Led Zeppelin in December 2012. Over 6 million fans have watched the performance online and purchased the track on iTunes. Now, in addition to a full set of Heart classic hits including “Crazy on You,” “Barracuda,” “Alone,” “These Dreams,” “What About Love,” and many more, fans can experience this historical pairing live when Heart and Bonham close each show with a special thirty-minute finale tribute to Led Zeppelin.
Ann Wilson promises fans an incredibly special event. “Nancy and I and the rest of Heart are thrilled to be playing with Jason and his band this summer. Awesome rock n roll music everynight…miracles apt to happen any old time.” Nancy adds, “It’s not a tribute as we have the blessings of the gods themselves.”
Jason adds, “What a great night it was for us at the Kennedy Center awards, and now to be able to do it again on the road with Ann and Nancy is such an honor for me. I am really looking forward to taking my Led Zep Experience show out this summer with Heart and to join them in a Zep-a-thon closing the show as well. Just fantastic!”
There’s also a great cover story/interview with Ann and Nancy Wilson at Prairie Dog Magazine.
Check out another wonderful new lighting video with my friend, photographer David Honl, and the always hilarious, Claudia Christian. David explains the set-up for a Steampunk-themed portrait shoot in his studio using the Honl Photo Professional Lighting System. This video, along with “Astronaut & Cavegirl,” another HonlPhoto how-to video, was written and produced by Joel Metzger (The Outer Limits, Xena: Warrior Princess, Sliders), the mastermind behind Hothouse Bruiser.
