“I’m sick to my stomach,” I replied when asked about reading “Coreyography,” the new memoir by Corey Feldman. “I can’t shake it, and I am literally sick to my stomach.”
The book was delivered to my Kindle from my pre-order a month or so prior, and I literally read it in one day without stopping. There was no “put the book down, and come back,” because I never put it down. I read it from front to back without stopping. I literally could not believe what I was reading.
To sum it all up, the fact that Corey Feldman is not in prison or worse is beyond me, honestly. I am not saying that Corey was a bad person, and should be – what I am saying is, it’s amazing he turned himself around and didn’t end up there. I do not know Corey, I have never met or talked with him in person, and I do not know his family or if they turned themselves around or not. The way that they were portrayed, and the way that they treated him as a child pissed me off so bad, that I became bitter. Why?
1. A child should never be a breadwinner, period. Corey was physically abused, mentally abused, emotionally abused, and financially raped. RAPED. People who should have been responsible guardians were hardcore monsters in these pages, using wooden dowels to beat him for “getting fired,” or “not getting an audition.” Fat shaming, blatant drug use, and tacky trashy portrayals of “Mom’s new boyfriend,” just pissed me off. I’m still pissed off. I’d like to meet those people, and punch the fuck out of them. I’d like to cane them with dowel rods, and make them suffer.
Yeah, I’m pretty pissed. It hits me close to home, and parallels so many emotions in my life that I can honestly say, I often wonder why I am not also in prison. How have I made it this far? Corey, literally, there are many things that you experienced in your life that I did too, so you’re not alone in that, but you know that already, I am sure. However, don’t hate me for saying that I would really like to beat the shit out of your Mom right now.
I hope she has changed.
2. Being famous sucks, I would not want that for myself. I don’t understand people who think that until the whole World knows them, that they have not lived a fulfilled life. Look, being in a movie is hard work, so is writing a book, doing a theatrical production, and it takes a toll on a person. I am often asked how I do the projects that I do without cracking, and I don’t know how I do it – I just pace myself the right way I guess, but it didn’t keep me from passing out from exhaustion, or having a few week stays in hospitals from working myself into the ground.
However, the level of stardom that Corey experienced was the level of stardom that I will never see. Hanging with Michael Jackson, or all of the other millions of people that he named in that book exceeds any experience I will ever have in my life, and I feel sorry for the public roads that they had to travel to find themselves, and clear up EXTREME “stress induced” mistakes along the way. And then….. and then…… those fucking protozoa parasites….. let me get my piece in on them…… let me exhaust this nausea that I have on them…. let me…. just give me a moment.
Compose myself. Compose.
First, please watch this trailer of “Lucas,” where Corey Haim, according to Feldman, was raped while filming:
I am not disputing ANYTHING that Feldmans writes, because I don’t know him and I TRUST him….. I really do. Corey Haim was born in 1971, and Lucas was released in 1986 which means that he was 15 when Feldman paints the picture that “he was given a blowjob by someone, etc.” David Seltzer Directed the movie, credited as also the Writer. His other written work include “The Omen,” and “Willy WOnka and the Chocolate Factory” screenplay.
I’m not saying that this is the man, I am just saying pedophiles flock to where the kids are, and I look for patterns in people who are into, working with, all very “misfit” kid roles that pedos target. However, the super sleuth in me is very delusional at times, and it’s not my concern, but here is WHAT I am concerned with:
A. Corey Feldman WAS molested, no question. NO question that that scumbag freak of nature his Father hired to assist him in his “company” was a composite of shit filled DNA and should be hit by my car. I can’t imagine waking up to find someone (without permission) trying to get at my junk. I can’t imagine being so low as to not be a role model to a CHILD who has no real role models or authority figures to actually say “NO, you are better than this…” but instead twist their opportunities into sexual targets.
Corey, if I ever see the dude who did that to you on a sidewalk, I am committing vehicular homicide. He will be a bug on my windshield, which I will happily hit with my wipers and continue about my day without thinking twice. My anger, rage, hurt, unbelievable disgust for this man is just … I can’t peel it from my body. Again, how Corey has not ended up in prison on revenge alone is beyond me.
B. Corey Haim was 15 years old during the filming of Lucas, and no adult should have been having sex with him at his age. However, as I was reading, ages were confusing to me at times that some of this was happening… was Corey on drugs and asking for sex? What constitutes being molested if you say “come here and take care of this?” The adult should have said “No, you are too young,” but they didn’t because no one was saying no to his celebrity…. right? Wrong? Look, what I am trying to say is that no one should have been saying “YES” all the time, but because of the Hollywood greed from everyone wanting a piece of this “financial pie,” no one would stand up and say “this is wrong.”
Sucking off Corey Haim at 15-16 years old, or as early as 11 years old is WRONG. Period. If Corey was saying “come suck me off” at 15 years old, the adult in the room should have said, “um, you know you should probably rethink this because it’s not right to have sex with adults.”
Then I remember the REAL fucking World we live in.
I was born in 1974, and when I saw Corey Haim in “Lost Boys” I had a huge huge crush on him, and being a pudgey gay kid in Louisville, Kentucky – I kept that to myself. However, Corey Haim was three years older than me, and just really charming. To me, as a closeted gay kid, my crushes are what got me through the pain of being picked on all the time.
To know that someone older saw Corey as a sexual object, and abused him in his state of adolescent confusion, makes my heart abandon those childhood feelings of seeing him as a crush. I feel like, in some way, mortified that Corey was so over-sexualized/confused that he deviated from life in many ways, until the very end.
Here is what I hope and pray for Corey Feldman, and what worries me. Does Corey have any positive gay role models in his life? Are there any gay men that he has met, or who are freinds with him that didn’t want to have sex with him, or take advantage of him? Maybe Corey will read this and answer me himself, because honestly – I worry. I worry about it because GAY people do not equal pedophiles, and not all pedophiles are “GAY.”
In one part of the book, Corey friends a man who isn’t fond of gay people, and that brought Corey comfort… this disturbed me. Gay does not pedophile make, in fact, it’s quite statistically opposite. I hope that there are GLBTI people in Corey’s life that are flirty, fun, and sane.
I wish I could hit all of the pedophiles in the World with my car. I wish I could take a chainsaw to all of the ones that hurt Corey Haim, and Corey Feldman. I just wish I could take it all away, and change things.
I hate the fucking assholes that hurt them.
3. Michael Jackson was murdered. End of story. He was framed, coddled, no one said no to him and he was either intentionally/directly or indirectly/unitentionally murdered by a person who would not say no to him. No one said no to Michael Jackson, and his addiction killed him or he killed himself, or he was murdered. END OF STORY. After reading Corey’s book, and then digesting the weird end to their friendship… Jackson’s paranoia was founded and real, and he was a man who lost his trust in people he held dear. This was not a ignorant man, Jackson was driven, and someone pulled the plug on his success.
I am literally sick about this now, because so many great people have died at the hands of…. what?
What is it? What is the root cause? Greed? You can only push and pull people for so long before they crack, and to do it to a person who is so young and vulnerable is unbelievably maddening.
I want to hit these fools with my car. My poor car, if I had my way, would be totalled by the end of my rage.
I recommend getting the book and reading it, and I want to say that with all my heart, I love and respect Corey Feldman so much for writing this. It was not easy to put on paper, I can tell that. I know that Corey wrote from the heart, and did an amazing job remembering details from the darkest of times… and I respect that.
However, in the deep pit of my stomach I lived and grew up with most of these celebrities, and I found myself mourning more and more – as if I had lost these “friends” myself.
Truth is, if the Hollywood machine was more responsible, and if we as a “society” changed our perception of fame, then these people would all STILL be alive today.
“Coreyography” is more than just a book, it’s an eye opening picture into the coveted life of a celebrity, and makes you question why people covet that particular lifestyle at all.
My heart to all that were lost, and to Corey who pulled himself out of the dark….
Sincerely & With Love,
Jake A. Wheat

I love when a book releases, and fun artwork is generated – this one was by a fan! I added the text, because I wanted to make it a desktop! XOXO to the person who submitted this, awesome! Gotta love art! Seriously, this is a really cool “pop out” art sheet that a very talented fan did for my book, and I love it!
I am sure we will have more fun submissions as time moves forward, and if you haven’t picked up a copy of my book yet – ORDER ONE! Adults only though, ok?

The Devil Is In The Details:
1. Mr. “B” or Mr. Balam aka. Balam is simply a demon spirit who at the beginning of the story manifests as a possessed youth, and then moves to two other forms. He has a sensual form, and his “God” form which is that of a muscular male, with three heads, and a barbed penis. He is a“real” demon spirit which when researched is quite fascinating. Google him!
2. A bottle of 1787 Chateau Lafitte – humorous and fictional acquisition by our character, Trace,unless it was given to him by supernatural means. The bottle of 1787 Chateau Lafitte, once thought to be owned by Thomas Jefferson, was the most expensive bottle of wine sold at auction ($156,000) – honestly.
3. Soldier’s Dance by William Tell – I was listening to classical music when writing that scene with Dr. Harrid, and that song came on. As I was writing the characters in my head seemed to choreograph well with the song, and so I gave it a mention. I actually gave a few songs mention in the story, because they came on my headphones as I was writing. Odd how that happens.
4. Anna – Detective Hodges had a Wife, but was also “dating” Anna. Re-read that part again.
5. Pope Street – I describe this house in vivid detail, because it exists. It has a trap door that goes into the basement, a walk up (narrow stairway) attic, and the floorboards in the attic can be removed to find “spaces” where a body can be hidden away. I hated the house, and I rented it for over a year, but felt very unsafe there. It was a shotgun, very large, and I always felt watched. I can remember walking out of that house for the last time and feeling like I was being rushed out by something. I never looked back.
6. Eve Adam Drive – A real place, I grew up there as a child. My childhood home is still there, and the neighborhood appears to be still very simple and quiet.
7. Jason Ryan Conner’s Photograph – The B&W photo that appears as Jason Ryan Conner’s character was photoshopped to look murdered, however the wound on his forehead is not fake.Turns out he accidentally hit his head during the shoot, and let it bleed to make the photo more authentic.
8. Clues – I clued readers in to the “changing of the collectors” many times in the transcripts between Hodges and Trace. Trace even says, at one point, that “his last one was most perfect.” He, of course, talking about himself.
9. Spunk Lube – it’s real. When lubrication is needed in my stories, I use either STR8CAMLube or SPUNK. SPUNK is the hybrid lubricate of STR8CamLube, and are sold by my friend Jeff in California who modeled for my book “The Spaghetti Seduction.” Need lube? SpunkLube.com
10. I (Jake Wheat) am fecalphobic, and so writing the scenes with the Hag and her poop issues really grossed me out. In fact, she was one of the few reasons I would have to quit writing for a bit. My imagination went haywire, and I grossed my OWN self out! LOL!
Everyone welcome Jake A. Wheat’s new “ADULT” coloring book “Color or Die,” which brings readers a full novel with dozens of HORRIFIC coloring sheets inside. The book centers around a serial murderer named Trace Andrew Burke, who grew up in the city of Louisville, Kentucky. A self-proclaimed man among men, Trace is already captured by the Louisville Metro Police Department and confesses to each murder on Detective Hodges tape recorder – which is then transcribed.
Written in first person, “Color or Die” is a morbid, controversial, and witty look at the perspective of a serial killer. One would think it would hardly be appropriate to find wit and humor from human suffering, but somehow Jake Wheat pulls it off in between the pages of this book. It cannot be stressed enough that “Color or Die” is not, for one moment, a publication for minors. It contains images of torture, cannibalism, and full frontal nudity. For necrophiles, this book offers a welcomed treat and for those who remain conservative minded may want to think twice before ordering.
“Color or Die” is a full novel, and coloring book with Illustrations by Michael McPhee with real models, simulated crime photos, and lots of gore. ”This book was so damn controversial, my first agent backed out of me publishing it so I had to get a new one. I’m glad I did, because I am really proud of how this book turned out.”
Fans of Jake Wheat’s work will appreciate his dark style, but Wheat warns that this is not the candy coated FUN silly kind of horror novel. In fact Wheat states that “while writing the book, I had to take breaks in between because the killer made me nauseated, which made me question whether or not I was going too far.” Indeed Wheat’s book does move into gray areas of cannibalism, psychotic behaviors, and taboo sexual fetishes which are not popular in American culture. ”I will say this, I did a lot of research while writing this book and I learned a lot. I learned that people are predators just like animals, and while we can pretend all we want – man by nature is no different than any other carnivorous beast.”
Cannibalism plays a large part in the role of Trace, the lead character in the book. Wheat stated that he actually talked to a few people who claimed to have eaten human flesh to understand how to describe it in his book. ”Yes, there were a couple people that I spoke with and they were very safe and kind. They stated that at one time they had partaken in the eating of human flesh, and described it in palatable detail. I kept thinking to myself, I’m going to be a vegetarian after this book is published. I’m still thinking about it.”
Yep, new commercial for my Halloween coloring book for adults, which is now available from my publisher and on Amazon.com! This commercial is dark, I like it, but I can’t get past the 3D animated stuff… I guess I am old school and like the real stuff better! LOL! Oh well, it’s still creepy in it’s own way!
Check it out:
Speaking of Halloween, my friend Josh has put together a Facebook Event to gather on Friday, October 26th to visit the “Field of Screams” and has made it an exclusive event! I will be there, along with other friends and people that I have not met yet – and I am very excited!
Every year I always review Field of Screams, and it’s pretty much the only haunt I get to visit during my busy October season! The highlight of this years visit to the haunt….. getting to hang out with my friends, and to give Josh a big old hug. I haven’t seen him in a while, and it will be nice to hang out!
I got a fan pic the other day from a guy who got my Halloween coloring book, and got creative with the “color or die” slogan that we use in our ads! I love it, and I’ll probably use it at some point for a banner or something! Thanks mate for the awesome photo, too bad your dead with those kick ass abs! LOL!
Again, if you want a copy of my book “This Is Not Your Kid’s Halloween Coloring Book,” then please get your copy and enjoy! I am already working on my next book, and thinking about it brings a smile to my face. Also, check out this kick ass review of my coloring book on SoEntertain.me’s website! KILLER huh? (Heh, I said killer…)
