Interview with Pop Underground

Welcome; John Cunningham aka ‘Corn Mo’.

Q/ Morning. How’s it going?


Q/ I was doing – what I laughingly like to call – research. Now the internet is quite a big place and perhaps I was poking around in the wrong corner but it’s quite hard to find a huge amount of information on you. Are you carefully maintaining the persona of an enigmatic master of songs?

No. I’m just not that popular. It would be brilliant if it were true.

Q/ You’ve toured with Ben Folds, The Polyphonic Spree and They Might Be Giants. They’re all very different artists. They might giants with quirky short songs, The polyphonic spree with two dozen robed individuals, Ben Folds atop his piano conducting the audience into a sing-along...

Gary Gygax

God rest the soul of a man who developed a wonderful world that allowed me to brandish Stormbringer. I cheated to get it only because two demigods at my middle school threatened to kill all of us. I know they didn’t become demigods the right way.
Here’s an interview me and kittenpants and some other friends gave to the late Gary Gygax.

Mongol Rally Adventure

I received this email a week ago. What a great adventure!

Hey man,
we met a couple of months ago in NYC, but I just wanted to send you
some pictures I thought you might appreciate. Basically I
participated in a Rally Race across Europe and Asia this summer for
charity and carried the music and inspiration of Corn Mo with me.
These pictures were all taken in Kazakhstan just before my rally car
died. For more pictures and a more profound explanation, check out have a good one.

Ben Franklin as a werewolf

Magnus Buchan to Max Fischer: I always wanted to be in one of your fookin’ plays.

I’m in a play reading on Friday.  My friend, Nick, asked me to do it and I needed to say no because I have too much going on this week.  But I love his plays and his puppet shows so it was too hard to say no.  Furthermore, the part he wrote for me is Ben Franklin, who turns into a werewolf.  

 It’s 1763 and there are  vampires in Philadelphia.

Paula Abdul Blackwood is a beautiful young Quaker girl being forced into marriage with the wheelwright’s son.

Jack Sheridan, a politically idealistic young vampire, is the man she loves. 

Everywhere there is dissent.  Fractious parties debate the future of the colony.

MC Skat Kat and Benjamin Franklin vy for power in the Assembly.

Things I found in my room

I was cleaning up some things in order to build the diorama for the next cd cover. I tend to take too long cleaning because I enjoy reminiscing. I found these things:


I can’t remember who drew this. I really like it though. I’m glad the date’s on it. That’s exactly how I looked in ’07.


This is a setlist from a Bindlestiff Family Cirkus show. I don’t remember where I was.
Intro: Philomena’s Bindlestiff song
Diablo: Kinko the Clown’s really good at this act.
Magic: Magic Brian. He was diligent about keeping a notebook of previous tours so that he wouldn’t do the same trick again.
Glass: Dr. Flummox walked on glass.
Corn Mo: I did a few songs.
Okra: I can’t remember if he did the knife throwing act or if he smashed a cinder block over his head. I think it was the latter...
