Taking The Pitch Elevator To The Top..

In recent years the Hollywood system seems to have grown complacent to the fans that help build their bank accounts and credibility. Every year for every popular movie, there are multiple movies that should have seen a lot more red light and lesser green ones. The fan’s apathy could cause the next lackluster installment of “Fantastic 4” or the fan’s passion could rise up and decide for the original content we deserve. This is where LEGION M comes in and changes the Hollywood machine.

LEGION M is the first fan owned entertainment company, the fans make the decisions and the fans will reap the rewards. At the recent Los Angeles Comic Convention, the co-founder and president of LEGION M., Jeff Annison was in attendance at the convention to introduce the convention goers to the world of LEGION M and their current project the “Pitch Elevator”

I was lucky enough to sit down with Jeff and delve into the creation of this unique concept…

The foundation of LEGION M is why I love independent creativity and why Nowhere California exists. I consider it an honor that I had an opportunity talk with Jeff and learn about this company. The entire Nowhere California team would like to thank Jeff for taking the time to talk with us and we urge all of our listeners to join the legion.

Two Paths Cross At Last..

This installment of Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Stan Lee Los Angeles Comic Convention has a short back story and that will lead us into the conversation with the multi-talented, Joe Ochman.

In the early days of Nowhere, the team would never have imagined that we would conduct interviews with people from the entertainment world and gain actual connections with this talented world, but that changed with the chance meeting with Satu and Steve J. Palmer from “Queen Gorya”. After that meeting, Steve J. Palmer started to line up interviews for the guys from Nowhere and one of those interviews was going to be with Joe Ochman.

Ochman is a multi-talented performer that has delved into many aspects of the entertainment world, he has taken his talented from the stage to the screen and behind the scenes. The chance to talk with Joe was an opportunity that the Nowhere California team couldn’t wait to talk with him, but a few speed bumps appeared in the way (so goes the life of the independent podcaster) It took a little time, but good things come to those who wait and we jumped to the chance to talk with Joe at the 2016 Stan Lee Comic Con.

It might have taken some time to get this conversation with Joe, but it was a pleasure to talk with this man. You should take the time to check out his credits and I wouldn’t be surprised if you see some very familiar titles.

The entire Nowhere California team would like to thank Joe for taking the time to talk with us at the convention. We hope it won’t be too long before we get the opportunity to delve deeper into your career and talk again.

The guys from Nowhere are continuing their coverage from the 2016 Stan Lee Los Angeles Comic Con and they are crossing paths with another friend from conventions past who happens to have their roots in the Garden State.

In this installment of our convention’s coverage, we talk with the multitalented Marilyn Ghigliotti and this isn’t here first visit to Nowhere, as the Nowhere California Team has crossed paths with her two other times in this past year.

The first meeting took place at the 2015 Stan Lee’s Comikaze (who would have thought that would be the last year for that moniker)

The second meeting was at the world premiere for the amazing science fiction movie “Rouge Warrior:Robot Fighter” (Seriously, seek this movie out and enjoy it.)

JOIN THE FIGHT! Help the HACK PACK!

(Nicholas Dye/ Staff Writer)

The guys here at Nowhere California have launched a new campaign that, at the very least, will get us some awesome shirts made, and at best, we might just earn some money that we can put towards our convention expenses and equipment costs.

We have designed an exclusive “HACK PACK” t-shirt and the short goal is to sell 14 shirts which will get them to print. If we can reach a goal of 50 shirts, then we will actually make some money to put towards expanding our horizons at Nowhere California.

 

The campaign can be found at http://www.booster.com/nowhereca and the shirt runs a total of $19.99 with shipping included. They are 100% cotton high quality t-shirts that you can show off at conventions or comic shops. BUT WAIT!! THERE’S MORE!! The first 14 people who purchase shirts will receive ALL of our interviews and content from the upcoming Stan Lee’s Comikaze before the general public does.

We here at Nowhere California don’t usually like to pander but…OKAY OKAY we have never been above pandering to get listeners and now we hope that same shameless groveling will get you to join the HACK PACK and sport our mildly suggestive t-shirt!! Excelsior!!!!

 

 

Returning To The Party..

In the world of documentaries, entertainment can easily be lost to information overload and that will vary from subject to subject, but that is where “Glory Daze:The Life And Times Of Michael Alig” takes the road less traveled. It is these traits that lead to my interview with Ramon Fernandez, the director of “Glory Daze”, and our conversation delves into a case that still fascinates many to this date.

The curious case of Michael Alig begins in the rise of the New York Club scene of the 90s, where the club kids and drugs ran the street. Alig became the leader of this party revolution and felt untouchable, but the party came to an end and Alig was convicted of murder.

This documentary will give you a look at a life and a moment of time that could easily be forgotten, but dissects this period to every level. The entire Nowhere California team would like to thank Ramon for talking with us and giving us some insight on the making of this film.

 “Glory Days:The Life And Times Of Michael Alig” is currently available on digital formats and stay locked into this website for a complete review of this film.

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

365_zps32stbaw6

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

This Summer…Who you Gonna call?

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Yesterday, the world was witness to some unusual paranormal activity that appeared in the form of a free roaming, full-screen movie trailer. That’s right, the long awaited trailer for Paul Feig’s all-female cast of Ghostbusters hit http://www.ghostbusters.com to mixed reactions. We here at Nowhere California absolutely loved our first glimpse into the new world of the Ghostbusters franchise. Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon (By the way, McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann? My new crush!), and Leslie Jones round out our new Ghostbusters as well as, who we believe will be their super sexy secretary, Chris Hemsworth. The trailer gives us our first glimpse at the new ghosts and a familiar ugly little spud…green…gross…OKAY It’s Slimer. Since the guys at Nowhere gave this to me to write I will hop on a short soapbox for a moment. This may not be our original guys nor a true sequel to the franchise. It is, however, honoring the original with cameos by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, the freaking firehouse AND, as I mentioned, Slimer. The hearse they use in this as Ecto-1 is a 1984 Cadillac…you know 1984…like when the first film came out!? So everyone needs to cool their collective jets and just enjoy a new chapter into the Ghostbusters universe! I will be there on July 15th to watch as “A new team will answer the call.”

In the past, Nowhere California has had the opportunity to talk with some insanely talented people and this streak has continued with this our conversation with Chantel Riley.

Chantel can be seen currently on Broadway as Nala in “The Lion King”, a role she had the opportunity to play in a production based in Germany.

Also, the world can now see Chantel’s performance as Quincella in the movie “RACE”. “RACE” delves into Jesse Owens’ journey to the 1936 Olympic Games, these games took place in Berlin and we relive Owens history making face off against the handpicked athletes of Adolf Hitler. In the events leading to the Olympics, we learn about Jesse’s life and loves, this is where Quincella enters the picture. Quincella was a well-off admirer of Owens and pursued the athlete like an Olympic medal.
