August 4th, 2013 Comments off

2013-08-04-at-12.03Purging Talon Executive Director, Matt G. Paradise is featured in a pictorial entitled “Satanic Family Values” in the latest issue of Old Nick Magazine. Shot by the inimitable Paul Smalley (who is currently restoring his 19th century mansion in Iowa), the article showcases a few rakish gents of note in the infamous Church of Satan. From the publisher:

“Old Nick Magazine and its website were created for the forgotten man… the man who longs for the time of the genuine gentleman with a dark bent. The sophisticated gent who demonstrates manners and grace in every circumstance whether he’s at a formal affair or a ball game. We’re here for the man who loves women with curves, and who feel, smell and act like women. Welcome all you who are rogues, libertines and voluptuaries at heart”

The “Hell It’s Hot” summer issue (which also contains lots of pictures of naked women as well as articles on food, culture, art, sex and more) can be purchased either in print or digital form (there’s even an app for that!) at the issue’s MagCloud page. Back issues are available here. Official website for Old Nick is here (NSFW).

Mr. Slaughter Salutes Purging Talon

November 5th, 2009 Comments off

Kevin I. Slaughter is a vulgarian and elitist, half son of the South, half child of Mother England. He owns the 3rd largest private collection of vintage Super 8mm porn on the East Coast, plus an extensive library of adult paperbacks. He’s also been a staunch supporter of Purging Talon for most of its 16 years. On his blog, he recently writes

Matt Paradise had a pretty big impact on me through his Purging Talon Publishing. I thought I had a blog that contained my appreciation for his work, but I can’t find it…

I think I picked up a copy of Poo Poo Magazine first, and it was possibly through Atomic Books or Quimby’s, but I would always get the rest direct from then on, and when I was running the Den of Iniquity mail-order company I was putting in wholesale orders from him. I have a copy of deSade somewhere, and then later on his Superhighway to Hell.

I know my first article in another ‘zine was published in Not Like Most, and now I can’t remember if he’s published other articles or if it was just smaller notices. I’m trying to build a list of articles and interviews I’ve done over the years, but I just have “Not Like Most” listed with no further details yet. Either way, he’s supported my work over the years, big time, and I’ve done my best to reciprocate whenever possible.

Thanks, Kevin! Right back at ya.


Purging Talon’s First Podcast: Terror Transmission

July 31st, 2009 Comments off

The Vermont-based media company, Purging Talon, known for its caustic and controversial output throughout its almost 16-year history, has released the first episode of its all-new podcast, known as Terror Transmission.

Terror Transmission is a free podcast program dedicated to horror cinema, particularly classics of the genre and/or those hidden gems begging for rediscovery. Each episode, your hosts will select a film and view it, while providing listeners with real-time commentary, behind-the-scenes ephemera, and a dash of ribald humor. This creepy cocktail will then be edited down to its best elements and presented to you. Other material related to the world of horror will also be featured when deemed applicable.

Terror Transmission is hosted by Matt G. Paradise and Jason B. Andreasson. Paradise, Executive Director of Purging Talon, is both producer and co-host of the show. An avid horror fan for four decades, Paradise’s knowledge of the genre is extensive. Since the early-1990s, Paradise has also had a wealth of experience in the world of media, including self-publishing, network TV, terrestrial and Internet radio, podcasting, and much more, including design and maintenance of this site. Jason B. Andreasson is your other co-host and researcher for the program.  A largely self-taught expert in all genres of horror, he has viewed well over 3,000 horror films, and is currently working on a book devoted to all of this misspent time in front of the idiot box.

Terror Transmission can be heard from both its official website and Apple’s iTunes Store.
