THE SIMPSONS, NINE INCH NAILS, THE X-FILES, MARILYN MANSON… AND CURSED PIRATE GIRL

PRESS RELEASE: THE SIMPSONS, NINE INCH NAILS, THE X-FILES, MARILYN MANSON… AND CURSED PIRATE GIRL

Jim Rose (of the Jim Rose Circus, named “One of the Twenty Most Outrageous Acts of the 20th Century” by SPIN magazine) has been called on to press his unique fingerprint onto a great number of pop culture happenings that could only be called historical and iconic: The Simpsons and X-Files TV shows, tours with Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson… the list goes on, and in 2010 includes the role of Grandpa Alice on the cast recording of Jeremy Bastian’s comic Cursed Pirate Girl, which is not-for-sale and will only be played at select bookstore and library events this Fall.

“There are many things in my career that I’m proud of. I was hand-picked by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell for his very first Lollapalooza tour. Homer Simpson ran away and joined my circus as The Human Cannonball. I was investigated, poked, and prodded by Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. I went the full Downward Spiral tour with Trent Reznor and came out alive on the other side. I can call the finest artistic minds on the planet my friends, from the late William Burroughs to Bowie, Bono and Bob Dylan. But for pure emotional joy, nothing matches what I felt when I read Cursed Pirate Girl for the first time. Gail Potocki nailed it when she called it ‘Our generation’s Alice in Wonderland’. This isn’t pop culture, this is something timeless. When I heard about the cast recording I made the calls to get myself involved.”

Cursed Pirate Girl is one of the most talked-about books in the comic industry: Mike Mignola (Hellboy) exclaimed the book to be “truly original… Jeremy Bastian is a genius!”; David Petersen (Mouse Guard) calls it “classic storytelling that any age can enjoy… (it) makes other artists jealous- and comic readers drool!” Gerard Way (The Umbrella Academy, and singer for the rock band My Chemical Romance) says “Cursed Pirate Girl is totally ahead of its time. I wish I’d thought of it!”

  1. How can a store/library go about signing up to have a chance of being able to present this program?
