Ok, first of all, let’s get this out of the way because Dave has made me watch it about 10 times now. The other 200, I’ve watched on my own without provocation. Make sure your sound is turned up; otherwise, you won’t get why it’s so awesome.
I don’t know who that is but if we had known about him before the John Dies at the End movie finished filming, we would have used every resource at our disposal to somehow get him at least a bit part in it. Which is to say that Dave would have sent Don Coscarelli a polite email.
Oh, wait, you didn’t know about the filming being done? Well you should have been following this site and Don’s Twitter more closely, you buttass! Then you wouldn’t miss little awesome things like this:
I never thought I’d be so happy to read the phrase “heavy visual effects.” That’s awesome news because even though I’ve heard Rob C Mayes is a very talented actor, I’ve never met him, so I don’t know his dong situation. If he’s not packing heat, that may be what the heavy visual effects are for. At least that’s what I’m assuming.
Wait, if you didn’t know about the movie being in the VFX mode, did you also not know about this:
What’s that? It’s Dave’s whiteboard — a picture he posted on Facebook a week or two ago. Why is a picture of a blank whiteboard important? Because that’s his “To Do” list for the sequel. The fact that it is blank means THE MOTHERFUCKING SEQUEL DRAFT IS FINISHED!
Just to be clear on this, there is a LOT of editing to do, so discussing release dates and all that right now isn’t even possible because that’s not even a thing yet. What this means is that the meat of the dish is finished, and now it has to be seasoned, and the sides made, and the — holy shit, I’m hungry. What was I talking about? Oh, the sequel. But it’s still great news because it’s now something Dave can physically hold in his hands as a rough completed work with a beginning, middle, and most importantly, an ending. Basically think of it like this:
The book is already on its way out of the dog’s asshole and will soon be on your proverbial car speakers. It’s just that there’s a lot of air between that butthole and the back dashboard. What do you call that shelf in the back? Is there a name for that? Whatever it’s called, I’m saying that Dog Dave is about to shit all over it. I’m not good with analogies.
Regardless, what that means for us, personally, is that we can finally afford to get our hair done the right way!
Or maybe get an awesome new phone.
Don’t get comfortable because there’s even more awesome news. Dave did an interview with Holy Taco, and it’s most definitely worth checking out. What he has to say about “the-book-is-better-than-the-movie” syndrome is just great. It’s one of his best interviews, I think. And I’m not just saying that because there’s a picture of both of us standing with Michael Swaim and Daniel O’Brien.
On top of that, he has a new article up over at Cracked where he talks about some of the world’s most soul-destroying jobs. What we do for a living isn’t on there, but then again we’re not entirely sure that the things we destroy are souls. They’re definitely a spirituality of some sort, but defining that is kind of technical. That aside, it’s a pretty damn interesting piece. You should read it before I whip out my dick and start whipping people.
