NSFW: Crack + Turds + Vomit = Another GWAR Event

You didn't honestly think GWAR was done shocking your mind with updates, did you? Just days after announcing details of the second annual GWAR-B-Q in Richmond, VA, and the launch of a massive US headlining tour this October, the band has now unveiled information about the next bout of insanity known as "Crack-A-Thon," as well as a new teaser for their upcoming comedy web series The Blood Vomits. It's almost too much for our puny human minds to conceive in just one article, but we'll try to make sense of it... read on and see if we succeeded. [Note: this may be slightly NSFW.]

If you don't recall the unspeakable horror that was the first Crack-A-Thon, allow us to refresh your memory: last April, GWAR front-beast Oderus Urungus and a horde of outlandish performance artists wreaked havoc upon New York for a week-long fundraising event at Brooklyn's MF Gallery, with each and every deranged moment broadcast live on the inter-webs. Allegedly staged to promote the network GWAR.tv and finance the band leader's massive drug habit, the first attempt was (according to their official statement) "a miserable failure... with Urungus actually smoking the money, and GWAR.tv disappearing from the internet after the webmaster was eaten by a crack-crazed penguin." Whatever really went down no one knows for sure, but the Scumdogs are ready to try again – this time with an emphasis on stand-up comedy, Oderus style.

"Screw a bunch of crappy guests," Urungus stated defiantly. "This year I am presenting a special Spoken Turd performance, where those humans lucky enough to get in will be treated to me droning on about any number of asinine subjects until I foam at the mouth and fall over backwards... I don't care if you think it's funny or not... you WILL laugh!"

This year's Crack-A-Thon will take place at the same location on September 2nd and 3rd, with Oderus giving two performances per night, and all four performances will be streamed live at GWAR.net. If you're brave (or insane) enough to attend in person, tickets can be purchased from the MF Gallery website.

In other GWAR news, the maggot-loving metallers also brought us up to date on their Kickstarter-funded comedy webseries The Blood Vomits, which is now approaching completion. The show's producers have put together a quickie teaser reel for the gory puppet-based medieval series, which you can viddy right here...
