They're Trying to Take Tracks the Poo Destroyer out of School!

This just in from Mugwumpville High School: the school board has narrowly voted to stop allocating class time for goofy jive dances to appease Tracks the Poo Destroyer. Students who wish to shake, shimmy, and jiggle what they wiggle may still do so, but the school is no longer allowed to endorse the practice or make these dances compulsory.

The Mugwump Corporation thinks this is a terrible idea and can only hope that the ban doesn’t last. Can you even begin to imagine what’s going to happen now that Tracks isn’t allowed in school? Shit ball fights in the hallways, sharting during lectures, and poo graffiti on classroom walls are merely the first things that come to mind. You simply cannot replace the moral authority of Tracks the Poo Destroyer with the unrestrained whims of our dumbass species.

When we asked school board president Shanks Landslide about the controversial decision, he had this to say: “Not everyone believes in Tracks. It would be unfair to force the beliefs of others onto the rest of the student population. Besides, there’s absolutely no evidence that doing a dance that makes you look like an epileptic walrus has any effect on the amount of people who shit their pants. Most people simply don’t like that squishy feeling in their backslide parts.”

People, if we continue to turn our backs on Tracks, we simply won’t be able to handle all the poo-splatter injuries. The Mugwump Corporation’s official policy is this: Repent now, ye fucking ass-stained sinners! Turn your back on Tracks and be prepared to face the terrible consequences of a world turned to shit!

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…

The Burning City: An Interview with Brian Diemar of MMII

I first heard the name Brian Diemar a few months ago, when I was looking around for information about Stephen Bier, formerly known as Madonna Wayne Gacy, or simply “Pogo.” He was the keyboard player for Marilyn Manson and seemed to have disappeared from public view since he left the group in 2007. Until a few months ago, the latest update on Pogo’s Wikipedia page said that he was “now a photographer.” So that was that.

Except that he had been making and producing music the entire time. And his major collaborator is Brian Diemar. Brian is a veteran lead guitar player and producer. Just prior to meeting Pogo he had left the band AM Conspiracy, a group he had formed with Jason Jones, the former lead singer of Drowning Pool. Pogo and Brian first collaborated by producing other bands under the name Faultline Productions. Shortly afterward, they began their collaboration with Hoss, a drummer who had played with the Exies and Mondo Generator. Together, the trio are MMII (pronounced “em em eye…
