RadioMilwaukee’s Diggin’ with the Architect


Just digging around on the internet

WTF: Barackula


I don’t know how to begin.  A musical based on Obama? Ok not far fetch look at Obama Girl. Then add a secret evil society, and vampires.  Someone must have been smoking the stuff that Bill Clinton didn’t inhale.  When I first heard about Barackula, I thought it was some corny joke.  I was wrong.  It is a real musicial inspired by Barack Obama ideals.

Barackula is a short political horror rock musical about young Barack Obama having to stave off a secret society of vampires at Harvard when he was inducted into presidency at the Harvard Law Review in 1990. Obama (Justin Sherman) finds that he must convince the vampire society that opposing political philosophies can coexist or else the society may transform Obama to the dark side. Reminiscent to Michael Jackson’s Thriller and a slight infusion of Jesus Christ Superstar, the film solely depicts Obama’s strengths, merits and genuineness while being quietly respectful towards the other presidential candidates. This short musical is highly entertaining with dancing Harvard student vampires, fantastic choreography by Victor Tang and Sherman’s physical likeness to Obama is remarkable. Shot on the new RED ONE camera, the quality of the film itself is stunning. Produced by Justin Sherman, Gavin Leighton, Brooke Shirey and Mike Lawson, Barackula – The Musical is exceedingly unique amidst today’s vast online media created by the voting public. The intent of the film makers is to create something fun and memorable during this year’s election. Release date is expected by February 2008.

Here is a little diddy from the forthcoming musical  entitled “Running”

I have one question.  After watching something like this would you be more or less to vote for Obama, or would it matter?

Well I all I have to say I hope it doesn’t suck (get it, suck, vampires suck blood).
