The San Francisco FogCam has been looming over the campus of San Francisco State University, in continual operation since 1994 and is the oldest webcam still in existence ....and we link to it just because that's pretty damn cool.

Samantha Christianson Does Pinhead

In the above video, Winnipeg-based makeup artist Samantha Christianson demonstrates her remarkable skills as she transforms herself into a horrific-yet-sexy female version of the iconic Pinhead from the Hellraiser film franchise.

What would have been Erika Smith's interview

Actress and model Erika Smith was featured here in July of 2014, in a compilation piece on the models of a prominent pin-up photographer. When I contacted Erika about a solo interview two months ago, she immediately agreed and we decided that e-mail would probably be the most convenient way to conduct it. It's also the most likely way to add another to the Incomplete Interview file, but I honestly didn't think this had a strong chance of being one.

To summarize; by mid-March, it seemed like replies to my questions didn't seem likely, and in an effort to avoid inclusion into the "Incomplete Interview" file (where we are now) an offer for a "one-question" interview was made and accepted. The one question was sent, but not replied to. Instead, Erika sent me her reasons (which were appreciated and none to do with yours truly or this site) for ultimately deciding not to do an interview, after all.

I would thank Erika for wasting my time, but since I'm publishing my questions, so they'll at least be seen, if not answered, my time wasn't entirely wasted. Enjoy the following questions Erika Smith decided not to answer.

Donna Hamblin - A Closer Look

Despite having appeared in such films as Cauldron: Baptism of Blood, Mark of the Astro-Zombies, and Blood Reunion 3: Hunters, Donna Hamblin isn't fond of the dark, being covered in fake blood, and to this day, can't sit thought The Exorcist. However, she puts all that aside and always gives 100% when doing a scene in a horror movie.

A favorite of acclaimed cult filmmaking guru, Ted V. Mikels, Donna has appeared in several of Ted's films and is slated to appear in more, including the highly anticipated Ten Violent Women Part 2. She'll also be starring in Len Kabasinski's upcoming Angel of Reckoning, along with Scream Queen icon Deborah Dutch. Len, another director who's recognized Donna's talents, also cast her in his 2014 action sci-fi film, Blood Mercury, also along with Deborah.

Last November, during the making of Ten Violent Women Part 2, Donna was interviewed by her fellow actress Dawna Lee Heising, which we featured here. Knowing Donna deserved a closer look, she graciously gave this exclusive interview to Idol Features, where, besides her acting roles, we cover some other topics, such as the charitable causes she's involved with in Las Vegas, the city she's called home for most of her life.

Krista Grotte - A Closer Look

Actress and fitness model Krista Grotte's "day job" as a project manager for a Florida-based aviation technology company, requires her to travel quite a bit, which would make one wonder how she also manages to have a successful acting and modeling career. You'd think her frequent travels would hampering her show biz career. However, Krista says she coordinates the two by scheduling her shoots and appearances to coincide with where she'll be at the time, thus turning what could be an obstacle, into an advantage.

A favorite of award-winning director Thomas J. Churchill, Krista's proud to be starring in his upcoming film Check Point, and rightfully so. It deals with domestic terrorism, an issue our country is currently faced with, and has a strong cast. She's also been recently cast in three more of Thomas' upcoming films; Marilyn: Zombie Hunter, starring Sarah French, and two that have just been recently announced: Beautiful Nightmare, which will also feature Vida Ghaffari in a starring role, and Nation's Fire, which was covered in last week's press release featured here, that also included her Eye on Entertainment interview with the lovely Dawna Lee Heising.

Also, a correspondent for the Florida-based TV show Born to Ride, Krista, a motorcycle enthusiast herself, is a familiar face among the biker community throughout the southern states, where the show is broadcast. Just press play to hear about that and much more in Krista's very recent and exclusive interview with Idol Features.

Author Amy McCorkle

Award-winning author and blogger Amy McCorkle, whose works have been published under her real name as well as her pen name, Kate Lynd, is probably most noted for her non-fiction book, Letters to Daniel, which was spawned by her blog of the same title. Started in May of 2013, the blog Letters to Daniel consisted of open letters she had written to actor Daniel Craig, whom Amy is a huge fan of. However, the entries in the blog were definitely not typical gushing, fan letters. They were written as is Amy were talking to a close friend and the subject matter ranged from light and humorous to, as Amy puts it; "dark, heavy shit most people take to their graves with them." Most of Amy's other works have been of the sci-fi and erotic romance genre, which have also been quite successful, making Amazon's paid best seller list.

The Kentucky native and avid Wildcats fan is also a screenwriter. Her first films, which she also produced, she chalks up to learning experiences, but, as this goes to press, her script for the film adaptation of Letters to Daniel has been nominated for best script by the International Christian Film Festival and is an official selection at the NOVA Fest (The Northern Virginia International Film & Music Festival). Of course, for the ICFF, Amy decided to trim some of the coarse language from her script, as her writing pulls no punches. Above photo courtesy of Amy herself.

Heroines and Bad Girls Deep Inside the Pirate Office

As a creator, I get to draw inspiration from all over the place, and that all comes together for me here in my very own "Pirate Office." It's a place where I do all my digital artwork, great pinups for Geo's Vixens, and my salute to pinups. It's where I recently created the first book for The Angel Codex; Midnight Angel: Afterfall, and it's where I work on writings for Idol Features as well, like now.

All of this comes together in one spot: The Pirate Office. It's here that I'll now be focusing on as a feature for my Youtube channel, where the first episode is now up. I'll take all those who want to see what inspires some great art and a lot of madness. It's that source of energy that really takes me anywhere I want to go, in terms of my art. I'll be honest; usually, it's a very sexy place I end up going. Creating pinups for a living has really made my world complete, and many of the statues in the Pirate Office will be highlighted. I'll also be telling everyone what I like, or sometimes dislike, about various items that dwell deep within the Pirate Office's hollowed walls. It's a who's who of sexy horror and amazing comic book heroines and bad girls. Why is that? Because more than anything, I'm inspired by strong empowered and yes, sexy, creations.
