We’re Still Airing in Atkinson & B. C. / Temporary Site Maintenance
Wondering why you’re not seeing many updates on our blog? No worries, knif. Things are quite busy at THE DARK VAULT and with our production outfit PPI. Some of it is personal stuff, a lot of it is related to some of the movies and the other television programs PPI produce. We don’t cross-promote a lot of our other endeavors here (with exception to UNCLE PETE‘s long-running radio program), but since there has been significant radio silence on the blog (but not on television! We just finished airing several months’ worth of WORLD PREMIER episodes of THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN and we’re digging deep into the archives to present some encore presentations of shows we haven’t aired in at least a year… sometimes two years… over the next few months!), we’re going to level with you.
Right now we are bringing in more clones to help keep THE DVOPD blog up-to-date while the brains behind PPI are off in the far east working on other projects (some related to THE DARK VAULT-iverse). We’re hoping to have the clones properly trained in the art of blog maintenance so you – our loyal peeps – don’t end up scratching your heads wondering what exactly is going on in THE DARK VAULT and what we’re airing in your particular neck of the woods. We appreciate your patience and hope you can drop back in a month when the blog is back to normal. Well, about as normal as THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN can get.
THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN is still airing every Saturday night @ 10pm on Time-Warner Cable channel 4 of Broome County. We are also airing every Saturday night starting somewhere between 9:50pm-10pm (check ACTV’s listings. It changes now and again) every Saturday night and concluding ’round midnight, 3am (late Saturday night) Sunday mornings, and every Sunday night between 9:50-10pm (again, check ACTV-20’s listings) and concluding ’round midnight in Atkinson, New Hampshire. We’re also popping up on various stations around the U. S., but keeping up with affiliates hasn’t been easy, and sometimes we are replacement programming. Some of our episodes are being run on “The Vortex,” so you might want to check out their fine offerings for a dose of DARK VAULTian fun as well!
Now here’s some of the stuff that’s going on with PPI:
Did you know that PPI produced mainland China’s first post-apocalyptic punk rock musical, DRAGON CITY? Details are currently being finalized for its official U. S. DVD release in 2012. Here’s the trailer for the mainland Chinese DVD release from 2011.
DRAGON CITY had its world theatrical premier @ the CINEMA WASTELAND Cult Movie Expo in Strongsville, Ohio on October 1st, 2011. It was the only pure, independent Chinese entry screened @ the IT CAME FOM SCHENECTADY 24 hour Science Fiction Movie Marathon on October 16th, 2011, in Schenectady, NY; nestled in between Kinji Fukasaku’s BATTLE ROYALE and James Gunn’s SUPER. It had its mainland Chinese premier during the national week holiday (October 1st-7th) in Xi’an, Shaanxi Provincea, and on October 13th in Lanzhou, Gansu Province.
As some of you are aware, PPI produces THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN and THE DARK VAULT OF KUNG FU (The first – and only – cult movie program produced in mainland China, which will have new episodes coming your way in 2012), and we produced two seasons’ worth of DARK VAULT webisodes that were featured on STAGE6, Google Video and VEOH between 2007-2009. Did you know that PPI also produced a second cult movie program entitled TWISTED CINEMA? TWISTED CINEMA was a more serious, straightforward cult movie program with a UHF vibe. It’s currently on hiatus but it pops up now and again on cable affiliates in the pacific northwest.
Here are a pair of episodes.
The Pilot, part 1
In addition to PPI’s roster of cult movie programming we also produce an ongoing series that spotlights modern mainland Chinese rock’n’roll music, entitled MUSIC KINGDOM. It airs on affiliates in Fayetteville, Arkansas (Cox Communications cable channel 218/AT&T Uverse channel 99), and every Friday & Saturday night @ Midnight-thirty on OSM Channel 16 in Schenectady, NY, with future broadcasts in Syracuse, NY and on ACTV-20 in Atkinson, NH. Some stations will air uncensored broadcasts while others will air (audiophonically) censored versions . Open Stage Media currently broadcast the program uncut and uncensored.
You can watch episodes of MUSIC KINGDOM on-demand through Open Stage Media’s website:
PPI also actively produces music video for mainland Chinese bands. Here are two examples:
On top of all of that, PPI is in preproduction on its next narrative feature while being knee-deep in production on a documentary about the history of punk rock in mainland China.
Toss in our annual slate of brand spankin’ new episodes of THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN every summer and you can see we are busy all year long.
This is not an excuse. We’re just asking for you to pardon the delays in updating the DARK VAULT blog. We want to let you know we appreciate all of your support and we wanted to let you know that we are working on brining things back up to speed here. Thank you for your your continued support of PPI’s various endeavors!
