Do This: Psychedelic pooches tonight at Crowbar!

The Terrible auteurs, in what must have been a supremely OCD frenzy, have taken a bizarre, often flat-out disturbing flick about a wandering Christlike figure and used that as a premise somehow to compile hundreds of clips of man’s best friends catching Frisbees, wearing sunglasses, skateboarding on the beach and other tail-wagging activities.

I got a screener and watched what I could of the canine masterpiece of mayhem between tasks today. It's is amusingly compelling. Go see it if you can. Highly recommended.

It's got all the psychedelically prismatic and multiple visual effects you'd expect, with footage of talking dogs in movies, puppets from Christian children's shows, public access programs, corny TV news anchors and crazy overdubbed dialogue and manipulations.

There's a montage of pooping/farting, doggie sex, puppies and frequent shots of an obedience trainer with tight white pants and a bitchin' mullet.

There are cameos from Gary Busey, Ruth Buzzi and Jon Voigt (who performs martial arts against a pooch) and Snoop Dogg (who transforms into a doberman). I think I even saw Benji in there too.

See it tonight, Tues., March 8, at Crowbar, 1812 N. 17th St., Ybor.

Alien House and No Milk perform. $6 in advance, $9 at door. Doors at 8 p.m. All ages (but use discretion; not the little ones, please; there's some full-frontal — including an icky fat, hairy man).

Call 813-241-8600 or visit for other details.

The twisted VHS-splicing Everything is Terrible returns to Crowbar to screen its opus with the mostest, DoggieWoggiez! Poochie Woochiez! — a reworking of Alejandro Jodorowsky's ’73 trippy cult classic, The Holy Mountain — but — using only dog-related found footage.

Adding appropriately to the insanity, EIT members entertain and host the Aestheticized Presents event in full-body mascot costumes.

Let’s take a moment and fully appreciate this.
