Big Money Rustlas trailer, you guys:
If this was 2009, I would say “is this real life?” but it is 2010, and that reference has gone out of fashion, so I will just stick with the more traditional WHAAAAAAAAT? Normally, of course, with a movie this miserable and insane looking (get it? You get it), I would ask for whom this movie was intended, and who could possibly want this. No such problem with Big Money Rustlas. We know exactly who this movie is for and who
could possibly want definitely wants this. Juggalos! The Detroit News featured an article over the weekend about the movie’s premiere at the Fillmore theater in downtown Detroit, and it is every bit the living nightmare you might imagine! Middle-aged men and angry teenagers alike dressed in clown makeup, standing in the freezing cold, waiting to get inside and shout curse words at a movie made by the Insane Clown Posse about the Old West (which is strangely still awaiting a distribution deal. Weird). But this part is the best:
As a line of fans wrapped down Elizabeth Street, past Park Avenue and almost down to Clifford Street, ICP’s Psychopathic Records labelmates — most of whom had roles in the film — pulled up to the front of the building in limousines. Reflecting on the excitement in the air, Twiztid’s Paul Methric remarked, “this makes me want to move to Hollywood.”
I cannot wait for Variety’s article about Twiztid’s Paul Methric moving to Hollywood.
“For weeks, his name had been the buzz at all of the hottest parties, but now he was finally here, and the town greeted him with open arms and bated breath. ‘Can we get you a decaf soy cappuccino?’ the assistant that Mr. Methric shares with Meryl Streep asked. Twiztid’s Paul Methric nodded but asked her to make it a caffeinated soy latte. He was going to need the energy to get through the pile of scripts that was waiting for him, after all.”
Actually, I lied, I think this is the best part:
Last to arrive was the Insane Clown Posse themselves, with Violent J (real name: Joe Bruce) in a blue sport coat and blue jeans and Shaggy 2 Dope (real name: Joe Utsler) in a black and white fur coat, accessorized with a bling-studded walking cane.
“This feeling is unapproachable,” said J, standing beneath the Fillmore marquee. “We’ve waited 10 years for this.”
It is nice to see that Shaggy 2 Dope treated his movie premiere as a Pimps and Hos party 15 years ago. No joke, that is entirely appropriate. But obviously, it is that quote that is killing me. “The feeling is unapproachable” is the new motto for 2010. Don’t doubt it.
