Make Your Own Damn Podcast – 4/16/21

Marc Vuletich

I’m beyond thrilled to announce the launch of a new show. In addition to White Trash Occultism (which you can view on my YouTube channel), I am kicking off Make Your Own Damn Podcast, a show where we examine the filmography of the infamous provocateurs at Troma Entertainment with author and former editor at Deadite Press Jeff Burk as my cohost.

I’ve been a Troma fan for over two decades now. Their no-holds-barred approach to content, along with their leftist underpinnings, has been a huge influence on my work from day one. Their movies irreverent, bizarre, sexual, and gory. They have no scruples when it comes to elements that may offend. Their movies aren’t even always good, but they’re almost always interesting.

Like me, Jeff is also a longtime fan. He’s also met Lloyd Kaufman, the co-founder of Troma Entertainment, on numerous occasions and even had a book he published optioned by Troma at one time.

We have two episodes in the can already. They will be up very soon, so stay tuned.

Extinction Peak-A Novel of Dinosaur Horror

I’m about to make what will likely be one of my final passes on Extinction Peak, my dinosaur horror novel. Some of my work comes from my subconscious and flows rather easily. This book was not one of them. I wrote the first draft almost five years ago. The version that exists today has only the title in common with that old draft.

Weirdly, this book will likely be more fun to read than some of my other titles. It relies heavily on world-building and action, not symbology and style. That’s not to say it lacks depth. If you’re looking for it, my thesis will present itself. That’s all I’ll say about that for now.

Jeff Burk made it official the Monday after Killer Con, so I’ll announce it here: Extinction Peak is set for publication in 2020 by his new press Section 31 Productions.
