Chuck Varga, one of the founders of the Slave Pit, has a new website available. The website is more of an online resume but also provides interesting information about the man known as Sexicutioner on-stage. Chuck brought a lot of talent and entertainment to Slave Pit Inc. and GWAR and now resides in NYC where he works as a special effects technician.
Bob Gorman's new website is now online. It's been sitting idle for quite a while but Bob is a busy guy of course, which is prevalent by the plethora of items displayed on his website. Bob shows off his work on bicycles, Mopar toys, illustrations, as well as a couple infamous GWAR props.
More new items to come soon, as GWAR is now off tour. We hope to add a few new pictures to the site as well as a general update. Maybe one of these days we'll offer some merchandise to sell for those interested in prints or other various Slave Pit Inc items. Would you like to see some

Don Drakulich aka Sleazy P. Martini, brings forth his latest sculptures in the form of GWAR figures. These are a definite must for the hardcore GWAR collector. Don is selling these primarily through Ebay currently, so keep your mouse pointed in that direction. As of right now there are none for sale but keep an eye out for when more are made. Some people have already gotten their hands on these great little collectibles.
For those interested, Don specializes in scuplture, video production, and costume fabrication through his company Hypereal Productions. Visit his profile or his website for more information.

takes on ChewOnThis Magazine
Bob Gorman is interviewed in a well done pop-culture style
mag based in Richmond, VA, called Chew
On This. Bob offers some thoughts on his role in GWAR
and the editors offer some thought provoking photos of cute
women with scary monsters. All-in-all an interesting 3-page
read for those with a short attention span.
"We argue a bit but what it comes
down to ultimately is a compromise. Everything is a compromise;
even working at McDonalds there are compromises. This is less
of a compromise. Iíve done plenty of other jobs outside of
GWAR, but I keep coming back because itís how people know
me. When people see my art, they know it because theyíve seen
it in concert, on t-shirts, and in comic books. Itís the coolest
thing Iíve done and Iím very aware of that. I love it."
If you're local to Richmond feel free to snag a copy, or
for the non-local and computer savvy there is an Adobe Acrobat
(4 mb .PDF) and an I-Pod version
(34 Kb .sit) available for download from their website.
