Specimen 318

Download the soundtrack. Disclaimer: Specimen 318 is a short film that requires your attention for 26 minutes and 2 seconds. It isn’t a quick piece of eye candy that you can’t stop watching for some reason. Although we still appreciate the super-short form, we believe that we’ve already mastered it. We’ve been there done that, bought the t-shirt, bought the sweatshirt, bought the poster, wrote the novel, read the novel, recorded the book to tape, listened to the book on tape. What we’re trying to tell you is that we want you to watch the whole thing, enjoy it, and share it to your friends and family. And to ensure enjoyment of Specimen 318, we suggest putting yourself in a comfortable situation. Put on your favorite sweatpants, lay down or sit in an ergonomically-agreeable chair.

Not this again

We’ve gotten another rash (6) of emails in the past month or so from people again accusing Southern Comfort of co-opting images that Univore released years ago and using them as part of their newest ad campaign. Several of you wrote into us about this a while back after seeing a man who slightly resembled our friend and collaborator Marco Casale strolling along a beach in a bikini. We addressed your accusations in this post. Now this from someone named “Trim” in Arizona: “Vore: I was watching crazy cat videos on the Internet with my girlfriend the other day and one of the commercials we had to sit through was for Southern Comfort, or as I like to call it ‘ Universal Discomfort” because it tastes like shit no matter what part of the country you’re drinking it in.

Plenty of Nog

When the holidays approach, Marco gets nostalgic. As should anyone else who was blessed with a pleasant childhood and didn’t then grow up to be an ungrateful bastard. Not a December day goes by without our Italian friend being set upon by a fond Italian memory of an Italian Christmas gone by. And this year was no different. That’s why we thought it only fitting to let Marco invoke some Casale family tradition in the 2013 Univore holiday video greeting. Thus, we gave him the creative reigns to our little holiday sleigh. When we told him that the idea was his to concoct, he grew warm and fuzzy with power. “I want to pay tribute to my uncle,” he told us after an entire week of deliberation. He went on to explain the details of an interesting ritual begun by

All Hallow’s Eve

Did you know that Halloween dates back all the way to the ancient Celts? They used to light bonfires, apparently. Moving on… Anyone who knows Univore knows that at least half of the two members of Univore love Halloween. And if you love it as much as he does, then you’ve already assembled the costume you’ll confidently be wearing to this year’s celebration(s). You might even be wearing it right now. Don’t worry, we won’t tell. (Wink, LOL.) But if you’re amongst the millions who are having trouble coming up with a solid costume idea, here are some suggestions: * Tiny Tim – the character from Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ AND singer of the 1968 version of ‘Tiptoe Through the Tulips’ simultaneously * Aileen Wuornos – the sexy highway prostitute BEFORE she became a serial killer * Sexy Edgar Allen Poe -
