For no apparent reason I’m currently obsessed with 80s horror film C.H.U.D. They’re cannibalistic humanoids! And they dwell underground! It’s bloody great.


If you’re in the area today the Edinburgh Zine Fair is on, I can’t make it unfortunately but it looks like it’s going to be a great event!

That’s all folks! Thank you to everyone who has been reading The Philadelphia Experiment, I hope you enjoyed it. Don’t worry Mothman will return!

In the next few weeks I will be starting a new comic strip, watch this space and thanks again to you all.


I’m a huge fan of the great Fritz Lang. The Dr Mabuse films, M and Metropolis are masterworks of early cinema, and his Hollywood career one of the most highly regarded and influential of any Director.

I was astonished to hear that the long lost original version of Metropolis was recently rediscovered. This much longer version, the only existing copy in the world, was found earlier this year in a Buenos Aires film archive.

You can read the story of the rediscovery here.

Sometimes you think you’ve heard it all 🙂

Philadelphia 12

Be here for the final part on Sunday!

I watched a lot of the Glastonbury coverage at the weekend, by far the best performance I saw was from Manu Chao. He was the singer in the group Mano Negra who you might remember, I think he’s better than ever now though. I’ve been listening to his album Radio Bemba Sound System all week, it’s amazing, beautiful music. My new mission in life is to see Manu play live!

I’m man enough to admit Neil Diamond was great too! I muted the TV when that tedious stroker Mark Ronson came on though.

 Philadelphia 11

The penultimate episode 12 will be here on Sunday! Honest!
