You Can Be Liberal All You Want While The Shit Ain't Hittin' The Fan

via goodloe byron

Hello, 'ol PK Laughingas here.  Official Mugwump Corporation Bear Cub Reporter #4504576.09857.  I've been told that I'm a pretty nice guy.

Someone the other day told me there's a pretty good chance everything could go to shit this year.  End of the world, big-time freak shit, ya know?  As most of you know, I'm a pretty liberal kind of guy.  Even batshit communist or socio-anarchist sometimes.  But reality being the bitch she is, in the event that we end up living in some post-apocalyptic Mad Max world on or about January 1st, 2013, I want ya'll to know I'll be prepared.  I'll take all that peace, love, and togetherness nonsense and shove it straight up my candy ass, like the Rock told me to do so many years ago.  I'll be going gonzo savage, and quick.

It'll be, say, January 2nd, 2013, and you'll maybe be hanging around 17. West Mulberry Street in Baltimore, right across from where the library once stood (symbolism!), scratching yer junk and wondering exactly when you'll starve to death.  Lo!  Up the street!  Who could that be, gnawing on a human thigh and holding a bloody spear in his other hand?  That person will be me.  And I'll have a smile on my face, damnit.

A few new age hippie types seem to think that 2012 is actually going to be some sort of mass spiritual awakening.  Good.  Why not?  Could be worse, I suppose.  The love you take being equal to the love you make, and all that nonsense.  But, just in case, I'll be nurturing that little savage inside me; the one who says I should wield my ax now, and ask questions later.

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…

Boy Meets Chrome: Christine

Written by Bill Phillips from a novel by Stephen King and directed by John Carpenter, Christine, released in 1983, is a love story between a boy and his car. This time, however, the car is alive and quite possessive of her boy.

She’s an older lover, too. Christine, a red Plymouth Fury, is a disheveled twenty-one years old when eighteen year old Arnie (Keith Gordon) falls for her. She’s broken down, in a state of disrepair and decay. When his best friend Dennis (Dean Stockwell) drives Arnie home after their first day of school, Arnie sees her sitting in the yard of a house that’s just as dilapidated at the car. Arnie decides he’s going to fix her, make her run again.

This movie is all about sex, love, and obsession and the moral lines that get blurred when these things interact with each other. Christine begins as Arnie and Dennis drive around discussing sex. Dennis, a football player and quite an attractive young man, has clearly had plenty of it, while Arnie is still a virgin. Denni…
