The Mugwump Corporation and the Irrationalization Party Urge You to Elect Pussywillow Buglesnout As Your Next Prez

via Goodloe Byron
Although the Republican Presidential candidates have been quite irrational so far, the Mugwump Corporation cannot, in the end, fully endorse any of their candidates with a clear conscience.  It's like they say, right?  You should endorse the candidate that most reflects your values, not the lesser of two evils.  Though, being evil isn't really much of a bother for us.  Gee-whooo.  Anyway, as you've probably figured out by now, the Mugwump Corporation pretty much only has one concern, though it is a big one: the total irrationalization of all things, everywhere.  Full stop, yo.  So we've formed our own party, henceforth known as the Irrationalization Party.  It is to be a third party of the fourth order.  And it is going to run a very special candidate.

Although Pussywillow Buglesnout's parents, Morp and Kkkkkkkkkkkzwzawzowaza Buglesnout are from the planet Asshattia, Buglesnout is in fact an American citizen, having been born in a manger in Bethlehem, Georgia, in 1831.  Currently living in Pimpsniff, Alabama, Pussywillow has graciously accepted the Irrationalization Party nomination for Prez. of the U.S. of (fuckin') A.  ThankyouJesusAmen.  Buglesnout announced his candidacy while standing on an overturned slop bucket behind his old wooden shack.  Though he adamantly refused to take questions from the audience (in this case a horny duck, a three-legged moose, and a frog that lost its soul) he did talk a little about his platform:

"Tits in every motorcycle helmet, a cock in every blue bonnet.  Yes.  Yeah!  This how I runs things.  I am for the molestation of imaginary friends.  I am against the consent of the governed.  I will make abortions illegal, except in cases of immaculate conception.  I will ban pants, except on Sunday, the Lord's Day.  I shall ban genitals on Tuesdays.  I will bugger your parents.  We shall raise Alfred Jarry from the dead for the express purpose of buggering him.  I will tax the dead.  I will ban the news.  Ozzy Osbourne will be my running mate, that is, if we can have him de-sexed and find him a unicorn in time."

The Mugwump Corporation looks forward to this exciting campaign.

Salvation, USA: A Not-Thrilling Thriller

Written by Bernie Van De Yacht and directed by Yacht and Brett Donowho, Salvation, USA is a thriller, sort of. It reminded me a lot of a Lifetime movie with a little sex and swearing. Until the finale, which gets all sorts of batshit violent and bloody. Ah, but advertising, eh? If you watch this movie after having seen the poster, you’ll end up wondering when the hell you’re going to see some violence, as violence is most clearly implied by the thing. And if you haven’t seen the poster, you’ll watch Salvation, USA and suddenly get weirded out when a pretty basic drama gets really freakin’ bloody by the end.

The movie concerns Vinnie (Ryan Donowho), a guy who seems passionate about fixing old stoves, restoring them to their former pristine states. But it’s all a ruse. Fixing the stoves is his launchpad for a long con. Donowho is a very charming actor, and so it’s not hard for the audience to be pretty damn hypnotized by his performance. We want to believe there’s good inside the guy. …

G Rated Horror: The Legend of Boggy Creek

The Legend of Boggy Creek was written by Earl E. Smith, but the whole thing represents the vision of director Charles B. Pierce. The story was pieced together from the tales of local residents from Fouke, Arkansas, some of whom appeared in Boggy Creek as themselves. The so-called Fouke Monster, basically a sasquatch, was a folk legend that residents claimed was real. Reports began to surface in newspaper articles around Arkansas in the early 70’s and they seized Smith’s imagination. He knew he had found the subject of his first feature film.

Pierce is an interesting character. A self-motivated guy with a ton of ambition, he worked as a weatherman and a children’s show host named Mayor Chuckles before starting his own advertising firm. He made commercials for all sorts of companies throughout Arkansas. The owner of a trucking company client loaned Pierce $100,000 to get started on shooting Boggy Creek. The film was an almost instant success in cheap movie theaters and drive-ins and it…

Holy Terror: Terribly Mundane

Holy Terror, a horror flick released on digital platforms like Amazon Video this month, proves that it’s pretty damn hard to write and direct an original exorcism movie. Not only is this film’s story muddled, but every idea is recycled from another, better movie.
The first two minutes or so are actually quite interesting. Cool visuals, with everything a pea-green or vibrant black color. A priest named Jacob (Scott Butler), a nun (Kristine DeBell), and another priest are performing an exorcism on some poor young girl when it goes wrong and she croaks. Jacob is so flustered by the experience that he questions his faith and leaves the church. Cool story, but it’s time to forget about Jacob for about thirty minutes while we get to know a not-at-all pleasant couple, Molly (Kelly Lynn Reiter) and Tom (Jesse Hlubik), who’ve just lost their kid partially because of Molly’s neglect. Weird stuff is going on at their house and, who knows, maybe their dead kid is coming back in the form of a ghost…
