At Gothic Bite Magazine, we love welcoming new patients to become part of our asylum. We question them and learn about them. It doesn’t matter what creative field they are part of because they’re our patients now. This week, we welcome James Vaughan.
Patient Name: James Vaughan
I’m James Vaughan, an occasional writer for GBM and a part-time custodian. I’m Taurus and enjoy long walks on the beach…Oops, sorry, wrong interview.
If that last line didn’t make it obvious, my key trait in the Ghoul Family is humour. I’m the comedic relief to the rest of our gang’s tragedy, showcase the theatre masks because I’d rather laugh now and cry later.
The Merkins are a musical band dedicated to the horror of all occasions! The holidays rarely rhyme with horror or slasher flicks. But The Merkins somehow make it work.
The Holiday Cheers All Around
That’s right, Biters. I meant to have this article out for October, but I missed that deadline. But that’s okay because, as goths, we let our Halloween spirit run all year long, including the Winter Solstice / Yule / Christmas.
It is not the first time that our pop culture expert, James or our favourite Skeleton Hiding In Our Closet do reviews about classic remakes, so, without further due, here’s a new one!
It’s Good To Be Back!
I have something a little different for you. Both friends, family and even coworkers have encouraged me to share about my autism. With that, I have not one but four YouTube cover artists for the price of one.
Those who are regulars over at GBM know that James Vaughan is our pop culture guy and music reviewer for covers. He is almost a YouTube promoter at this point! But this one…well, come in to read for yourself!
Literally Grasping At Australian Straws

Biters, I have another song lined up, and you’ll be surprised! It’s an original song and not a cover. With that said, I hope you feel limber because I’ll be reaching and stretching for this musical number.
Oh! Spoiler! Warning for how the stinger of how the song ends. Since it is why I wanted to share it with you all.
Gothic Bite Magazine reviews many different subjects and one of them is left to our pop culture specialist, James Vaughan. He loves his indie bands and his favourites are those who do covers of hits in a more rock and metal way!
It’s Been A While
A while back, in my Wolf Totem article, I did a mini review on somebody I’ve been wanting to talk about for ages Pamela Romvel and David Galardi, better known as The Covers Duo.
So, Biters, let’s move these two from the Gothic Bite Magazine opening act to the GBM headliners and take a closer look at The Covers Duo.
Last night I queued up Netflix and saw a new tremors film had come out, so naturally, I had to watch it. This film hit all the familiar beats I know and love from this franchise, but it also did something I never expected and shook me to my core. They killed Burt Gummer.
Favorite Horror Movie week! Today, it’s James’ turn and it’s a 2 for 1 Iconic Faceoff!
Official Jason vs. Freddy Summary
It’s been nearly ten years since Freddy Krueger terrorized people in the dreams. The town’s folk want to keep him erased from their memory. Freddy still has one more plan on getting back to Elm Street.
He resurrects Jason Voorhees and sends him off to kill. The more bodies which fall to the ground, the strong in which Freddy becomes. This is until, Freddy realizes that Jason isn’t going to step aside easily, and must be taken down himself. — Written by Film_Fan IMDb.
For as long as I can remember, I have had a crippling fear of just about anything, which called the water home. Although I’m a good sport about it, this has led to endless jokes and teasing from friends and family alike.
At Gothic Bite Magazine we love welcoming new patients to become part of our asylum. We question them and learn about them. It doesn’t matter what creative field they are part of because they’re our patient now. This week, we welcome the founder of High Voltage, Greg Kuta.
Patient Name: Greg Kuta
I was the second baby born in Baltimore on January 1, 1963, 12:42am, and it has been a party ever since! Raised in the Highlandtown section of East Baltimore, I attended St. Elizabeth’s Catholic school across from Patterson Park.
Growing up in the city was great. There were kids your age everywhere, and it was nothing to put together a game of soccer, baseball, or football. At the age of five or six, my grandmother gifted our family an electric organ.
Last time Jonathan Young was a musician James Vaughan did a review about and now he presents us with a wonderful and unique musical band named, Voice Play!
A Unique Acapella Group
Seasons Greetings Biters and Happy Holidays.
For this December, I’d share with you an A Capella group called, VoicePlay. I’ve wanted to write about these guys as far back as the Phantom of the Opera month. But I was not all that confident in my writing ability.
Now that I’ve got a few articles under my belt and sharpened my teeth a bit, let me introduce you to VoicePlay.
For the month of Halloween, our writer, James Vaughan, came up with this great idea of showing you how to make your very own dog bandana for Halloween! No reason to exclude our furry friends out of the Halloween fun!
No Rejection for the Furry Monsters!
Greetings, Biters. For this occasion, I thought I’d do something unique and teach you how to make one of my favorite projects a pet bandana.
After all, every witch has her cat, every demon needs a faithful hell hound, and what’s a Vampire without bats.
Greetings once again, Biters! For June, I thought I’d look at the Netflix hit series, The Umbrella Academy.
The Official Summary
On one day in 1989, 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.
In their teenage years, though, the family fractures and the team disbands. Fast forward to the present time, when the six surviving members of the clan reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing.
The Sandman is a mythical character in Western and Northern European folklore who puts people to sleep and brings good dreams by sprinkling magical sand onto the eyes of people while they sleep at night, i.e. rheum. — Wikipedia
Eighties Metal and Pop
Greetings Biters! For the April tribute to the Sandman, I’d take you for another trip into my music library. Let me introduce you to the band Rock Sugar and their hit Don’t Stop The Sandman.
The band consists of guitarist Chuck Duran, former bassist Johnny Santoro and now current bassist, Ken Cain, drummer Alexander Track and lead singer Wakko Warner himself Mr. Jess Harnell.
