In DC? Come see Helena LIVE on Tues. 10/12!!


9:00 Show
8:30 Doors


LIVE at the DC9!

They're baaaack! The infamous undead band Diamond Dead presents their 2010 HALLOWEEN DEADSCAPADE, hosted by the Vivacious Vixen of Doom herself: Helena Hussy of Horror (www. Prepare to have your face rocked off and eaten for dinner by these zombies with their signature fusion of rock, metal, punk and interactive theatricality. They've been blown up; they've been reanimated; they've battled Death and eaten the former Governor of Alaska... but can they survive a Tuesday night at 9th and U Street NW?

Winner of the 2008 Best Musical Pick of the Capital Fringe Festival
and 2009 DC Theatre Scene Audience Favorite Musical.

Time Out New York calls Diamond Dead "a blast," and Joan Wendell of the Washington City Paper writes "surely this rock and roll is worth going to Hell for." writes "the songs by Emmy Award-winning composer Richard Hartley induce legitimate toe-tapping, taking inspiration from the shock-rock theatrics of Alice Cooper and KISS, and the band deliver nice harmonies all around."

Diamond Dead also welcomes the special guest opening act EVA BRONTOSAURUS, described as "like Weird Al if he were three hot mammas with potty mouths who sing dirty ditties and bust Romy and Michelle dance moves."

'Women's Studies' Needs YOUR Help

Greetings, friend of Ningen Manga Productions. I'm writing to ask for your assistance. Don't worry. You don't have to help me move.

As you likely know, Women's Studies, NMP's movie about a school run by homicidal feminists, was recently released to DVD. While it has been listed on Netflix, it's currently not available to rent or watch via their "Instant Watch" program. My understanding is that there's a magic number of "saves" the movie has to reach before Netflix will commit. Apparently, there's something called "supply and demand" that the world economy is based on. I think math is involved but I got involved in filmmaking to avoid that kind of thing.

What I need from you is pretty simple: If you're a Netflix member, go to the link below and save Women's Studies to your queue.

That's pretty much it. You don't have to shell out any money. Heck, you don't even have to watch the movie once it becomes available if you don't want to, though I recommend it. It's actually a pretty good flick. But hey, don't take my word for it. See for yourself.

If you're like, "Hey! that was easy!" and want to help more, you can send a brief message to your friends, family, and co-workers also encouraging them to add Women's Studies to their Netflix queue. OR if you've already seen the movie, you can post a brief review on the site and/or give it a rating through their star system.

For those of you who aren't Netflix subscribers, I'm afraid the only help you can give is telling folks who do have Netflix to add Women's Studies. That or when the time comes you can help me move.

Thanks for your support.
