One of my good friends and fellow artists is about to give YOU THE BUSINESS!
Yes, in a special night of joy, TONIGHT, December 22, at 8PM, at the ZEROFRIENDS LA Store/Cella Gallery, a very special FREE MOVIE KNIGHTS event is taking place, hosted by the one and only JON FUCKING SCHNEPP, director of METALOCALYPSE and The Venture Bros! Jon might be one of the coolest dudes in the world, as he is also an incredible artist, filmmaker, voice actor, producer, and probably dancer, and he is taking some time out of his schedule to host a really cool holiday-themed Movie Knights event. I mean, I guess it would be holiday-themed if you considered THE APOCALYPSE a good holiday celebration:)

Yes, that's right, I mean, how could we have Jon host without having some kind of "OCALYPSE" in the theme, right??
We thought so too.
So yes, come down, eat some free pizza, meet Jon, watch some apocalyptic trailers, and THEN WATCH ONE OF THE MOST FUN, SCREAM-AT-THE-SCREEN APOCALYPTIC FILMS EVER! Neil Marshall's "DOOMSDAY"!

Cella Gallery & ZEROFRIENDS LA Present
Featuring "DOOMSDAY"
Hosted by Jon Schnepp
8 PM
11135 Weddington St. Suite #112
North Hollywood, CA 91601

DO IT!!!!

Alex Pardee x OCC LTD COFFEE For Charity!

If you follow my Twitter or Facebook, you know that I torture myself endlessly with de-voiding myself of sleep so that I can double up the amount of hours in the day. That makes sense right?? Well, to counter a lot of the madness, I started drinking coffee. I was never much of a coffee drinker until lately. I started with the gateway drug that is Frappucinos, then segwayed into mochas, then to Chai lattes, then to iced coffee, then to straight up wonderful roasted organic beauty. So, as someone who can attest to coffee (while maybe not being the BEST substitute for sleep I can find) being insanely clutch in work situations, and as someone who loves helping out any organization if in even the smallest way possible, I recently teamed up with one of the best photographers in the world, CLAY ENOS, who also happens to run one of the coolest charity programs ever called the ORGANIC COFFE CARTEL, where he travels the world to find the BEST organic roasted coffee beans, teams up with artists to design the labels, sells ULTRA limited packages of both the coffee and the removable, numbered label/print, and donates all of the profits to various charities around the world. Clay Enos and OCC really are some superheroes. WIth that being said, I highly suggest you take some time to check out OCC's limited coffee/art packages (there's a beautiful one from Molly Crabapple) and try out some of Clay's personal picks of wild coffee from his wild adventures. And I don't use the term wild loosely. The dude dives all over the world in a Vespa, befriends local villages, hunts for coffee beans, and fights savage beasts in the wild that mistake his Vespa for a large turkey leg. Show Clay some love, and check out the label we made for my Limited Edition run!!! Click on either pic or RIGHT HEREto go see/purchase the coffee.

Oh, and I got to create my flavor too, which I HAD to put caramel in there. You know, just a little.

The "VERTIGO" story begins to unravel

Not much has been revealed yet about the direction of my upcoming solo art show, "VERTIGO" at COREY HELFORD GALLERY in LA on JAN 8th, 2011, but that will slowly change over the next couple of weeks.
What I can say as of now, is that my entire show is inspired by the famous big game hunter from Kenya named Verti Parker. And over the next couple of weeks, I got authorization and access to, for the first time, publish some excerpts from a previously unpublished biography written about Verti, by historian Horace Chalem. So make sure you bookmark this new website and follow the story of Verti Parker as it unravels, giving a glimpse into the new world that will be unveiled at my show on Jan 8th. Enjoy:)

That's correct. After the great response and support we got with the Brown Thursday sale, we couldn't stop there! All of your continued support means that we can continue to release new apparel and prints that give you superpowers in a regular manner and do fun things like KEEP GIVING YOU MORE FREE STUFF THAT NO ONE ELSE WILL EVER GIVE YOU EVER. Kinda like herpes, but for your chest and walls, and in a less awkward but more colorful way

So here is the latest info for our final holiday sale:
We have THREE BRAND NEW T-SHIRTS (see below) that I designed now up for sale just in time for Christmas-giving (within the U.S, at least. Outside of the U.S. I can't promise but it's possible:)

With the purchase of ONE or more of ANY OF THESE THREE SPECIFIC SHIRTS (promotion only good with THESE 3 shirts, no exceptions), you will receive a FREE "Winter Stalker" Monster print with your order.

While supplies last, starting NOW. We have 100 Winter Stalker prints to give away for this promotion, so get your order onnnnnnnnn right this second ONLY here at the ZEROFRIENDS ONLINE STORE

Don't recognize the iconic monster that is a welcome edition to my "My Favorite Monsters" Series??? Well then, perhaps you missed ZEROFRIENDS' amazing Holiday Video Greeting Card that you should A) watch B) Pass around to your friends to say Happy Holidays, and then C) ORDER A SHIRT AND GET A FREE WINTER STALKER PRINT! YAHHHH!

Here is the Winter Stalker film to refresh your memory, directed by the Winter Wonderland Magic Wizard man, Stephen Reedy.

Now here are all of the new shirts to pick from! Click on any one to take you directly to view/purchase them. And have a happy happy happy holiday season from all of us at Zerofriends! I'll see you in a week with more updates on my upcoming solo art show at Corey Helford Gallery in LA on Jan 8th! I'm working hard on it. Word!

Oh, and there is no possible way that I could wish you a happy holiday season without giving you some NEW VIDEO BLOOD!! So take a second and absorb this madness from our good friends at 900 BATS! A few weeks ago I got to finally find use for my bloody Santa Costume, my weapons, my dangerous Christmas lights, and the girl I have been keeping down in the well in my studio. Awesome Photographer AMA REEVES took some photos for a project she is part of called THE BLOODY BEST, which which is a small collective of artists that create insanely cool horror themed photographs using some awesome people from behind the scenes of the horror industry as the models. I was lucky to be in on the project, which you can find out more of here at THE BLOODY BEST WEBSITE. And I was also lucky enough to have some good friends put together a nice little video of my experience, which really WAS one of the coolest days of my life. MIKE TAYLOR of Pretend For Real Studios shot the footage, Tognac Dekline edited it and the lovely AESOP ROCK supplied the beat, brought to you by 900Bats.

If you are even a little bit close to me, or have followed me on my TWITTER PAGE in the last year, it's no secret that I rarely shower, but am simultaneously OBSESSED with hand sanitizer. I seriously have even considered eating it in place of brushing my teeth, and the only reason I haven't, is because I am still a little mesmerized by the stuff. I mean, I have paint and grime on my hands consistently and one of the reasons I love hand sanitizer so much is that it is obviously made from magical Wizard-Sweat because it LITERALLY MAKES DIRT DISAPPEAR. I have no idea how. It doesn't just push dirt around, it evaporates it like an awesome laser gun, and it does this all while smelling great and feeling refreshing!
For 2 years, from 2005-2007 I had even made a make-shift Purell Dispenser/Harness out of duct tape and excitement that was a permanent fixture in my car until I used it so much it practically disintegrated itself. There is still duct tape residue on my glove box. Anyway, yah, I love that shit. And I'm constantly referencing it or making awesome sanitizer jokes and photoshop pics, like this one, depicting a variation that I wish existed so that I did not have to wash my HAM every time I eat it:

Anyway, because of this publicized love for hand sanitizer, and because STEPHEN REEDY has been directing the shit out of some rad short films and commercials for Zerofriends, we (Stephen, Me & Zerofriends) have been getting asked numerous times to take a job pitching a new marketing direction for Purell. And although I assumed it meant I could get enough free Purell to finally substitute showering forever by sleeping in a waterbed filled with Purell and finally destroy my syphilis, we have passed on every occasion because, passion aside, I'm not too sure if Purell fits my brand. That is, until today, when NASA ANNOUNCED THAT SOME BACTERIA CAN SURVIVE IN SPACE OFF OF ARSENIC AND STUFF! That seemed like a perfect segue into our new relationship with my favorite beverage, Purell! Because of our connections with the #1 magical Bacteria killers, we got word a little early from Purell & NASA about this discovery and we got to workkkkkkkkk, and the new campaign was launched a mere 7 HOURS after NASA announced that life as we know it is now changed! So here you go, Purell, I give you your new marketing campaign, courtesy of Stephen Reedy, Myself & Zerofriends. Now write us our check or I'll infect you with something that I guarantee you can't cure.
