Hey, Hey, We're the Ickys

Local filmmaker Danny Plotnick captures the Icky Boyfriends on the road to ruin

Up next for Plotnick is his adaptation of Peter Bagge's "Minimum Wage Love," a screamfest set in a beauty salon and the Hate comics tribute he's been planning for years. "I think Bagge's stuff and mine are real similar," says the Detroit-born director, "and I'm desperately looking for a beauty salon. I haven't had the guts yet to ask people if we can [use a salon to shoot] for a weekend. It's karmic payback, I guess, for not getting my hair cut in one for 15 years."

For now, though, Plotnick's rockumentary is taking the spotlight, the irony of which isn't lost on him. "And here you go, I make the rock film and we're getting so much press, so much buzz -- everyone's going apeshit. It's a good film and all, but it wouldn't get so much hype if the rock scene wasn't mobilized behind it. I have mixed feelings about that. But fuck it," he laughs, "it's happening to me this time, so it's OK. ... I always felt like people made movies about punk rock, and I make movies that are punk rock."

I'm Not Fascinating -- The Movie! plays Fri, Feb. 16, at Artists' Television Access in S.F.; call 824-3890.
