Stand Up Is More Artsy In Black And White

I performed at The Guild last week, and my buddy Bruce Ying Wong filmed my set. I thought the video was alright, but there was something off, something I couldn't quite put my finger on. I sent the video to the trash bin on my computer and hoped that the next one would turn out better. Then it came to me in a dream. Our subconscious is a strange thing, and dreams speak to us in metaphors, similes, and onomonopias, so I wasn't completely sure what it meant when I was skinny dipping in the Rio Grande and a silvery minnow, my spirit animal, said to me, he says "Rusty BE Michael Jackson. You ARE Michael Jackson." I try to trust and follow my dreams, so I knew it was no coincidence the next morning when I was on my way to get some plastic surgery when MJ came on my Michael Jackson Pandora station singing "It doesn't matter if you're black our white." I thought to myself out loud, "You're right Michael, it really doesn't matter if you're black or white, or in your case, black and white...black AND white. Wait a minute, my dream wasn't telling me to get a nose job, it was telling me I need to be black and white. My video needs to be BLACK AND WHITE! I called and canceled my appointment with the plastic surgeon, as well as the dentist appointment I had scheduled for next week to get my wisdom teeth pulled, and I turned my car around. I got pulled over for making an illegal u-turn while talking on the phone, but the cop let me go with a warning because I am white. I sped home to edit my video, got pulled over again for speeding, and got off with another warning because I am white. I opened up my trash bin, pulled out the mouse that I threw away last night out of frustration, took him outside to the dumpster because he was really starting to smell, then I went back inside to my computer, opened my computer trash bin and took out the video I had sent there last night. I did a little editing to make it black and white, and re-watched it. "This video is hilarious!" I screamed out loud. "I'm going to put this on YouTube" I whispered. So here it is, in it's entirety. I hope you are as touched by this video as I was...

...okay, actually I made it black and white because the lighting was weird at the venue and I thought this looked better.

ROTGUT - World Premier this weekend

 

It's the world premiere screening of the sleazy, slimy, shot-in-New Mexico horror-comedy "ROTGUT."

A seedy downtown bar on a seemingly quiet Sunday morning. Arriving at the doors is the usual collection of drunks, losers and lost souls. But when a batch of very bad booze is introduced into the mix, this group of unlikely, down-on-their-heels heroes must fight back against a growing horde of mutated, brain-eating maggot creatures. Drink up quick. Because Happy Hour is over. 

This locally-produced horror-comedy comes from the makers of Stiffed and I Heart U and features New Mexico actors Jeremy OwenMegan PribylMerritt Glover, Aaron Worley, Charlie Dearing, Eric Bodwell, Rusty Rutherford, Kevin Santry, Paul Alsing and Israel Wright. Plus a special appearance by Birdemic star Whitney Moore

Directed by Billy Garberina, written by Devin O'Leary and produced byCraig A. Butler. An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation! April 18 and 19, 10:30pm. $8 general / $6 students. Door Prizes Courtesy of STRANGER FACTORY. 

Cast and crew will be in attendance!
