Peanut: Ma gawdness that is a mouthful!
Bucket: So you founded the In Good Company... ahh... company in 2016 and it just under 4 years you've taken over six thousand shots. You're a busier than a one-armed-pimp in a bitch-slapping contest, you're a popular guy, you have a lovely partner, and being a busy man myself... I gotta ask... So when do you find time to literally do like anything else? What inspired you to start your your production studio?
Peanut: *Giggles* "Touring local glory holes doesn't count as being busy, Bucket!"
Bucket: Quiet you or it's back in the box you go
Peanut: But it's Christmas!!
Bucket: I'll unwrap you again for Christmas
Marcus: "Well I stay busy...." pauses a moment "THAT'S WHERE I KNOW YOU FROM PEANUT..DAMN I RECOGNIZED THOSE PRETTY LIPS.." coughs a moment " I mean..yeah..yeah what a lovely girl..But yeah I Manage time cause not everything is work. I have a good balance and I've learned to say no thanks to alot of things going on..You ask my inspiration well..I'll shoot straight with you..When I started a few people told me..I was no good..not right..you don't fit..sorry you're not etc etc etc..So I said Ok ..the only way I'm gonna get a foot in ..is do it myself..and so I started In Good Company as a play on things cause if You are in with this..you are surrounded by good company ..No one in the world is gonna give you everything or anything for that matter..sometimes you gotta mount up and ride for it"
Peanut: *Laughs awkwardly* "I have something on my lips again, don't I?"
Bucket: You say that like it's a strange thing
Bucket: But damn man, way to go
Bucket: Great outlook if you ask me
Bucket: To many folks out there lookin for the shortcut, not enough carving their own path
Bucket: and yeah... why do it alone, surround youreslf with the likeminded
Bucket: Anyway I Digress
Peanut: Thank god!
Marcus: "Thank you Bucket..I've never been one to go woe is me..no one likes me or all that bullshit..thats weak thinking..Only you can make you worth while in this world..but that only carries you so far..My Circle of folks are good solid people..and if they aint in that circle..well..that says something"
Bucket: Ok so one of your earliest and possibly your longest running projects, is your pornstar cards series........ That I'd like to hear more about! Was that something you just wished was around when growing up? Like Sitting around as a kid, your friends opening up packs of baseball cards and comic book cards. (and well back then they made collectible cards for pretty much everything BUT pornstars) So was this your way or righting the egregious wrong? You saw a hole in the marketplace and thought like any good man does "I'm gonna fill this hole, I'm gonna fill it so good"?
Peanut: Blahahahaha.......If I had a linden for every time he said "Fill this hole good!".....Blahahahaha!
Bucket: *Shakes his head*
Peanut: What about a cross between Pornstar Cards and Garbage Pail Kids......."Carrie Cumdumpster!!!!
Bucket: Or Peanut The Penis Destroyer?
Peanut: *Winks Playfully*
Marcus: "Ok the cards..One day I saw someone making a fun on sports cards..you know like baseball cards when you were a kid..they were putting peoples pictures on em..like a series..and also at that same time..The Notorious BEN was doing a series based off an artist Chuck Close I think it was..where he was doing photos of pornstars and so forth in only black and white..I started thinking..you know..I could do this combo and make pornstar cards and just try to show off the people who are trying to get into the scene and give em a leg up as well as show off the familiar faces you wanna see and work with"
Bucket: Getting a leg up is something the two of us understand well
Peanut: I thought it was legs open?
Bucket: Sometimes :D
Bucket: But I hear you Marcus, I know a couple people myself tht are all about paying it forward to people looking to break into the scene
Marcus: "Naw naw peanut..keep them legs open girl..leave em ..no no thats good ..thats good..Uh yeah yeah yeah -Coughs-- Yeah I got a few decent breaks back in the day..From people like Erin Celestialis..Isa Cheviot ..very early on who took chances on me..so I said..ok ..I got to do the same for other folks who are having a hard time being seen"
Bucket: Ok so as mentioned before you certainly seem to have a love of graphic design. You've used it to not only do your card series, but to make your shots look like everything from movie posters and magazine covers, to comic books. You flickr is more bright and colorful than ever before, so the questions here are.. do you have some kind of background in graphic design? And Do you ever worry that your page could induce an epileptic seizure?
Marcus: "Oh yeah.. I worry someone is gonna look and go all whack on seeing the photo you know..but hey ..look at your own risk right? I have Zero..Zero background in graphics..I am self taught in the ways of the photoshopin..Tellin you Youtube is a good thing at times"
Bucket: You do use your time wisely, Peanut!
Marcus Strong: "Oh yeah Peanut..I seen that one fight with the dude who straight punches that kangaroo in the mug like POW whats up !!"
Peanut: *Giggles* "I am more into heavy petting then upper cuts!"
Peanut: *Sticks her tongue out at Bucket*
Bucket: Anyway, so Marcus, you mainly take inspiration from things you've seen
Bucket: Like you've seen a playboy cover before, so you've learned to look at something and emulate the styling?
Marcus: "Pretty much ..I mean not gonna lie have seen a playboy or 100 in my lifetime..and its such a Iconic thing you know..the cover..so what I do is get a reference source..like reading a blueprint on how to build and go from there..the tough part is finding the Similar fonts you know...the photo is easy ..its thinking the wording and copy that is the bitch"
Bucket: Well whatever you're doing, you're doin it right, because alot of that stuff you do looks pretty authentic
Bucket: Ok Now we've hit that time of the interview... that time I let my rabid little partner off her leash and she proceeds to lay the verbal smackdown with..... Peanuts, PeanutButter Rapid Fire Question Time! Take it away Peanuto!!
Peanut: FINALLY!.....the good stuffs!
