(Late 80's)

Nicknames: "The Patterns", "The Seizure Shapes"

Logo: On a black background, 7 lines from the left side of the screen and 8 lines from the right side of the screen slide in to form a segmented square with many changing patterns. The background fades to grey and the square starts to become black as a circle with changing patterns appear. The square becomes fully black and starts to split. More shapes appear as the square gets split into 2 overlapping squares. The background becomes black as a white outline appears on the squares. The shapes disappears as 2 triangles and rectangles appear forming stylized Ps with changing patterns. As the Ps are getting formed, 7 long lines from the left side of the screen and 8 long lines from the right side of the screen slide in and briefly form a rectangle and slide of the screen. When they get off the screen, "PARKFIELD PUBLISHING" in white fade in under the squares. The patterns continue to change.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The sliding of the lines and forming of the logo. The logo looks like it was made in the 90's, which is very good.

Music/Sounds: It begins with synth bells that are heard throughout. A guitar thud is heard when the squares split. A shredding like sound is also heard when the lines slide under the squares. Another guitar thud is heard when the name fades in and continues even after the logo starts to fade out.

Availability: Should be available on all tapes with the Parkfield Publishing label. Was seen on Penny Crayon videos and on the VHS of Sweet Toronto: John Lennon.

Scare Factor: Medium. The rapidly changing patterns and dark environment as well the music will scare some.
