On this date, April 5, 1926, in Detroit, Michigan, Roger Corman was born, the king of low-budget films, pioneer of independent cinema and mentor of directors such as Francis Ford Copolla, Ron Howard and Martin Scorsese. I grew up with Roger Corman’ s films [the awesome E. A. Poe cycle with Vincent Price, cult sci-fi classics like The Wasp Woman, The Attack Of The Crab Monsters, War Of The Satellites, etc.]. Roger Corman is still alive and well at 94.

Happy Birthday, R.C.!

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections.
