After an impromptu recording session at Western Sound Studios courtesy of Lisa from Chunk Media, we've found ourselves included in a fantastic documentary called "Weekend Warriors" about the Kalamazoo music scene. At a mere seven dollars, you should buy several and give them to your friends! Check out the trailer right here- and if you look closely, you can see Zach yelling for a split second (0:42.)

Blurring the thin gray line between fact and fiction, Zach Elmblad's newest literary project aims to construct a hypothetical road trip in search of the American Dream. Half reality, half fantasy, "Borderline Vagabond" is a mostly true account of finding the American Dream between a Strip Club and a Waffle House in North Carolina. 

New! Square Four: Logos added 2/24/2010!

A serialized fictional story about life, death, and a metaphysical afterlife.

What happens when you die?

For one man, it was an overwhelming experience that he's having a hard time understanding. Live life over again from bacterium to bipede. Our character, named Lux Apotheosis by his newfound guides in the Fifth Dimension, relives his life on Earth to understand the intricate process of developing a fourth-dimensional consciousness- Human Beings. After he relives his own life, Lux journeys to a distant galaxy to become a creator of life.

8/9/09 - It's been an epic summer for The New Scum, to say the least. The New Scum Fix is now in it's 15th week, available to download for your enjoyment. Now available in The New Scum Store: "Opiate of the Masses" and "Pyramids, Paradise, and Paradigms" by Zach Elmblad. They're only $5, and by purchasing the book instead of reading it for free on the internet, you will have a keepsake for the rest of your life.

They're $5 each and are limited to 250. Each are hand assembled, hand numbered, and autographed. Know that your purchase is funding further productions for the New Scum!
