Warholesque pop art meets the Western in animator Erik Winkowski’s 2017 short Scary Prairie, in which Elvis Presley tries to rescue Marilyn from a string of Japanese monsters – before she transforms into a vampire bat and flies away, as Far Out Magazine reports. The 80-second film also features a rockabilly soundtrack by Billy Lilly and Friends.
Over the last 11 days, it has truly been a delight to hear about the many celebrations of Marilyn Monroe’s 84th birthday. Last weekend, Poisonous Pinups of Yuma, Arizona hosted a birthday bash for the queen of all calendar girls – Marilyn Monroe.
Poisonous Pinups can offer rockabilly, psychobilly, retro, pin-up, hot rod and rock & roll fashions for both sexes, and are located at 2615 E. 24th Street #3. It’s between Pacific Avenue and 3E, on the same street as Smitty’s Body Shop and Paradise Pools.
