NEW logo for Bite The Dust!



 After kicking around ideas and doodling in my composition journal for at least a year, I have found a logo that I have conceptualized, designed and like. Bite-the-dust.com has been around for 10+ years and I ever came with up an official logo. After a LOT of thought and bouncing ideas off of everyday I finally came up with something.

Bite The Dust logo history


Elvis-Jesus, The very first Bite The Dust logo from 2003.

Jimi Hendrix zombie logo from 2010, drawing by Miguel Aguilar.

This one was the un-official logo for 2 years.
It features Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Joey Ramone, Davy Jones and Joan Jett.
* This logo was pretty good, but the problem is it has other people's images in it. So I knew there would understandably be trademark issues.

BTD Kid 2013

Introducing "BTD kid" 

I created a simple, gender-ambiguous character in a rock and roll shirt with head phones, using the bic lighter to symbolize carrying the torch. BTD kid changes outfits, I made alternate ones of them in glam, punk, and more. I put the bass guitar on the t-shirt as a nod to the killer bass in the Queen song "Another one bites the dust." On September 23rd 2013, the BTD Logo was officially trademarked. I will still use the rock star faces I illustrated sometimes, but this is the official logo for Bite The Dust. 

The original doodles.
Final concept.

We need to talk about this: The Foo Fighters are "AIDS denialists"

Preface: I am a fan of the Foo Fighters' music, so this isn't intended to be a hit piece. I genuinely feel troubled by what I'm about to share with you in this blog entry. I had no idea about this until just days ago.  Recently I saw a video that addressed celebrities with controversial beliefs. The one that stood out to me was Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters being "AIDS denialists" (which I didn't even know was a thing?) aka "HIV Truthers". I immediately had to look into this because it sounded just too crazy to be real (and you should ALWAYS be skeptical of things you hear and do. your. research.) An article that I felt was very thorough on the topic was " Foo Fighters, HIV Deniers " "Maggiore’s message has apparently penetrated the minds of at least some Foo aficionados. She says she has heard from many Foo fans since the show — one of whom, she says, now works at the Alive and Well office.  “AIDS is a toxic disease caused

That's NOT Joey Ramone

Photos and footage that people have thought it was Joey Ramone, but is not .  Joey Ramone's brother Mickey Leigh is active on social media ( facebook ). Fairly often he seems to be answering questions  about him and Joey; largely ones looking for authentication of Joey photos.  Not Joey Ramone #1 This picture ^ is not of Joey Ramone but has been labeled and shared incorrectly as being a young photo of him. Here is the link to Mickey saying it's not a picture of Joey. Not Joey Ramone #2  I found this video while browsing through the message boards of Joeyramone.com. Holly crap! That looks JUST like Joey Ramone! I was sold that it was, until I read this: "Wow, it's a doppelganger!! If that's Joey, then who was that guy in the bed across from me in our bedroom? That is really weird. I had to look at that clip like 20 times, until I could freeze it on frames where I could see the glasses the guy was wearing , which were more squa

The Labyrinth audience participation and prop list

   This is an audience participation guide for Jim Henson's “Labyrinth” movie from 1986.   This guide is similar to the Rocky Horror Picture Show participation and prop list . Because the film is different and PG rated, some rules differ. An audience participation guide is similar to a drinking game sans the alcohol. Certain events trigger certain phrases or fun activities to make the movie more fun and interactive. The RHPS guide is usually done alongside a live performance of Rocky Horror in front of the screen, but this guide isn't ( yet! ) adapted for that. This guide was created after watching the Labyirnth and Rocky Horror Picture Show several times, including studying RHPS guides. --------------------------------------------- The Labyrinth guide is still a work in progress , if you have comments of idea on how to improve this please feel free to contact me  Beccajs@gmail.com --------------------------------------------- Labyrinth costumes and attire: Jar
