Yes, we’re early. Don’t go getting too used to it. We may or may not be trying out a trial period of weekly episodes. Big whoop, wanna fight about it? We are joined by Brian and Israel of the San Diego Metal Swap Meet to drink a TON of beer, talk about Jorge’s metal confusion, grassroots movements, terrible dinner parties, Tales From the Crypt as well as our “Tails From the Crypt” charity event, and we make an absolutely HUGE announcement about something that’s been in the works for the past year! Oh yeah, we also talk about that new movie The Invitation. But we all know that’s not why you came. You came for the bad jokes and the good lovin’. Let Jesus fuck you; it’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 65!
All hail! Dust off your gauntlets, apply your corpse paint, put on your bullet belt and hold up your imaginary heart it’s times for the metals! This week’s movie is bat shit insanity from New Zealand in the form of Deathgasm! We’ve been waiting for this movie for quite some time and it’s finally here! For the first time we’re recording out of Casa de Franco, we bust out our horrible Dethklok impersonations, Jorge explains his problem with the metals, Matt is sleep deprived and delirious, Chris sets us up to sing Sabotage and Too Many Cooks, and we missed both cues. We also manage to throw in some comic book news, musical tidbits, a little vinyl talk AND horror tv, it’s almost like we know what we’re doing. That’s just what we call pillow talk, baby. It’s the Who Goes There Podcast episode 51.
For our third Frights and Pints movie night we decided to show the holiday classic Gremlins, in honor of the holidays and this awesome movie we’re sharing this sweet metal version of the classic theme song! Continue reading for the video. Continue reading
The Scumdogs of the Universe, known lovingly here on planet Earth as GWAR, have announced that their reign of terror will not cease with the loss of leader Oderus Urungus, who passed earlier this year.

This is the most sad news we’ve had to report; according to Style Weekly, Dave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus, the founder and lead singer of renowned metal band GWAR, has died. Roommates reportedly found Brockie’s body at his home Sunday evening (March 23). “I wish it was a joke,” former GWAR bassist Chris Bopst, a music writer for Style Weekly, tells the site. “Everyone is in shock.” Brockie was 50 years old.
“Dave was one of the funniest, smartest, most creative and energetic persons I’ve known,” former GWAR bassist Mike Bishop told Style Weekly. “He was brash sometimes, always crass, irreverent, he was hilarious in every way. But he was also deeply intelligent and interested in life, history, politics and art. His penchant for scatological humors belied a lucid wit. He was a criminally underrated lyricist and hard rock vocalist, one of the best, ever! A great front man, a great painter, writer, he was also a hell of a bass guitarist. I loved him. He was capable of great empathy and had a real sense of justice.”
Vocalist Tony Foresta of fellow Richmond, Virginia band MUNICIPAL WASTE, which toured with GWAR in 2012, wrote on Instagram: “I’m so devastated right now. One of the most fun, brilliant, inspirational and creative people I’ve ever had the privilege to call a friend has passed. I’m going to miss you so much, pal.”
According to Australia’s TheMusic.com.au, GWAR’s management will issue a statement regarding reports of Brockie’s passing at approximately 1:00 p.m. EST today.
