• Hey there, lovers of fine art! My name is Noel Anderson but folks generally call me Scotch. I have an insatiable love of B-movies and blame much of who I am upon their influence. I've been a cartoonist for many years and Goof Roof continues to be my toehold in cyberspace. I’ve illustrated and written for numerous humor publications such as CRACKED, HUSTLER and HUSTLER HUMOR, JOKESTER, and THWAK magazines. Seduction Cinema Comics Group published my comic books, Play-Mate of the Apes and SpiderBabe. I worked as a radio personality for close to two decades in good ol’ Fargo, ND and enjoy creating musical and audio parodies in addition to my comic satires, and I'm currently co-editing a magazine called ART RIOT. So, go on… what are you waiting for? Check out the gallery and enjoy everything that’s goofy under one roof. Indeed, that’s why we’re here, my friends! Need to get a hold of me.?

Full Moon’s Trophy Heads is heads above the rest

Posted by Scotch on June 10th, 2014

trophy

I just finished watching the first three episodes of Charles Band’s new series, Trophy Heads, and I am elated. Full Moon Features has been entertaining me for decades with exactly the same type of film that our protagonist, Max, is obsessed with in this fun and creepy new web series from Full Moon Streaming. What a great surprise to see that so much thought and care went into creating this horrifying, episodic, treasure. The eerie setting coupled with the dysfunctional mother and son relationship, as well as the inside jokes and dark humor strike the perfect tone. I couldn’t have imagined anything better.

The story revolves around Max, who lives in his mother’s basement and is despondent that the glory days of vhs b-movies is fading, along with it’s beautiful starlets and scream queens. Max, aided by his snaggle-toothed mother, who would do anything for her baby boy, sets out to create an ongoing performance piece that involves kidnapping the likes of Brinke Stevens, Linnea Quigley, and Michelle Bauer. As the title suggests, heads do roll.

What I was pleased to see is that the countless cameos by the likes of Stuart Gordon, David DeCoteau, and other notables, not only serve as a humorous point of reference for fans of these genre films, but are genuinely entertaining and fun. I have nothing but good things to say about lead actors Adam Noble Roberts and Maria Olsen as well, who are both believable and menacing. Trophy Heads, produced and directed by Charles Band, really has it all. I can’t wait for it to come out on dvd so I can own it and sit in my basement and obsess over every frame of it!! I can only imagine what the next few episodes have in store as the first three left me with an appetite for more of the same. If episodic series like these are the future of Full Moon then I am absolutely on board. Check it out for yourself at Full Moon Streaming.

Raunchy Party 6-Pack Easy To Down

Posted by Scotch on May 4th, 2014

raunchy I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’ve been enjoying raunchy comedies since the Reagan administration. I feel like there’s a certain sense of satisfaction that one feels from high-fiving their buddies every time somebody gets hit in the balls in a Police Academy movie. Mill Creek Entertainment has harnessed those thrills and put together a dvd collection that is as raunchy as they come.

The Raunchy Party 6 Pack promises over 9 hours of wild parties without the hangover and brother, does it ever deliver.

First up is one of the funniest and zaniest teen comedies about cheerleading you will ever encounter. Fired Up is about a couple of football players who ditch football camp so they can spend the summer surrounded by hot chicks at cheer camp. Good premise…I’m with you so far! You may need to grab your bong for this next one. Puff Puff Pass features That 70’s Shot star, Danny Masterson in a dope comedy about two stoner buds involved in a scheme to rip off the sketchy Mr. Big. Jon Bon Jovi scores big in National Lampoon’s Pucked along side Married With Children’s David Faustino. Yet even more nudity and raunchy content await you in Bachelor Party Vegas featuring Kal Penn. Bottoms Up features the oddest pairing I have ever seen served up on celluloid. Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob) stars opposite Paris Hilton in this slightly askew Hollywood love story. Wieners wraps things up quite nicely, providing some twisted laughs during a raunchy road trip comedy starring Kenan Thompson. Three guys on a mission to help their buddy travel cross country in a wienermobile handing out hot dogs and encountering all sorts of freaks and weirdos. There is a particularly nasty scene with the ordinarily sexy (but not in this instance) Jenny McCarthy.

Mill Creek’s Raunchy Party 6 Pack is a sixer that you’ll polish off easily. Even if it is a bit skunky at times. Six movies that are worth adding to your collection on two discs in a great package at a nice price. Check it out at www.millcreekent.com today!

ART RIOT Four is out now!

Posted by Scotch on May 4th, 2014

fiends-copy
pigtails Once again, we defy all the odds by farting out another issue of
Fargo’s subversive underground art magazine. This particular issue is so jam-packed with unique and creative artists from the area that it’s practically coming apart at the staples. For instance, there’s this JoJo Seames; an incredibly cool cartoonist/illustrator who I first met at ValleyCon back in 2008. Also, from The Mecan’tiks, artist Douglas Hunter. Not to mention the incredibly detailed scratchboard art of my friend Jim “Snuffy” Smith. (It will put a shine on your stinger.)

To round out this issue we have the equally expressive Mistelle Stein, Scott Tally, Sheldon Martin, and a stunning cover by the weird and anomalous Polly Math. We even got Athena Funk to do the TOPFIFTY WHATEVER for us. And thank goodness, Beau and I were running out of crap to put on that list issue after issue. And just wait until you see Anne Bradley’s photo funny, Pinball Fever! This issue’s crowning jewel.

Now, just because I went stroking the egos of the aforementioned artists, don’t go thinking that you’re going to be getting any sort of high-brow, artsy fartsy entertaiment here. Granted, it will massage
and agitate your brain molecules but for the most part it’s just a lot of nonsensical funny business. Oh, and swearing! That Beau Fraase just can’t help himself from dropping those curse words. Just how in the hell does he expect us to make it on to the racks of the local grocery stores when he has a filthy potty mouth?! Sheesh! You think he kisses his mom with that mouth of his? Anyway, enjoy Art Riot 4. Grab a drink, kick off your shoes and go on in. We’ll see you on the other side. Oh, and you’ll need a shower afterwords. Find it in all your finer bars, liquor stores, tattoo shops and comic book stores! -Scotch

Alpha House is big frat fun!

Posted by Scotch on March 16th, 2014

alpha
Having never attended college myself, I’ve had to live and party vicariously through that well-worn film trope, the college comedy. With movies such as Bikini Spring Break under their belt and now Alpha House, The Asylum is fast becoming everything that National Lampoon once was in their heyday. However, Alpha House wisely sets it’s sights on delivering simpler fare than Lampoon’s seminal frat flick, Animal House.

Alphas, beware! The conniving Associate Dean has set a devious plan in motion; to shut down the Alpha’s frat house by making it co-ed. Horror of horrors!! The sexy girls of the Delta sorority have moved in and the more debauchery that occurs, the more the various frat house brothers get booted out of the house and off campus altogether. While the premise doesn’t make a whole hell of a lot of sense, the gags move fast and loose and center almost exclusively on getting the female members of the cast out of their clothes. While never aspiring to be much more than a sexy, college romp, Alpha House does succeed in evoking laughs through several running gags as well as an empathy for our young protagonists who wanted nothing more than to be Alphas and pursue the finer things that college has to offer. You know…beer, boobs…er, more beer!

It may not win any awards for complex storytelling or maturity, however it is an exceedingly well executed frat comedy that delivers everything one would expect it to. Alpha House is a topless, bouncy, beer-drenched, gag fest that is enthusiastic to live up to the tradition of the similar-themed college films that have preceded it…and it clearly measures up! Look for it on DVD from The Asylum.
