 There is a conflict that the fake news networks are too afraid to report on and this battle is something that blurs any political lines. This fight is as old as time and it is the war of MAN vs. ROCK, where some fear to tread two men continue to spread the word and Nowhere California was lucky enough to talk with these men for a second time.

 At the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, the Nowhere California Hack Pack crossed paths with Kevin Bieber and Victor De Troy to discuss the world of MAN vs. Rock, since their last meeting. The conversation runs the range of topics from their new monthly column to MAN vs. ROCK hitting the shelves of your favorite comic book store and anything else that might escape the minds of everyone involved in this interview.

How Taz Spent His Halloween Vacation..

During Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Convention, the guys from Nowhere crossed paths with a friend of con’s past and caught up with Taz.

The last time the team had crossed paths with Taz was at the 2014 Days of the Dead Convention, during the conventions Saturday morning cartoon screening and a friendship was formed through a alcohol charged commentary.

Since that chance meeting, we have been looking for a chance to cross paths with Taz and that opportunity came at this year’s Los Angeles Comic Con. There wasn’t a cartoon screening to riff our way through, but Taz and I had a great conversation about his return to the states. Also, the conversation delves into Taz’s musical life and his work with the band “As Flesh Decays” (CLICK HERE for As Flesh Decays EP “SINISTER”)

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.

After a short return to normal Nowhere California business, it is time to finish up our coverage from the 2016 Long Beach Comic Expo and release our final 3 interviews from this event.

In this installment, the guys from Nowhere talk with the talented Katie Leigh. The career of Katie Leigh can easily be summed up as the voices from your childhood. Leigh’s list of credits can be looked at like a roadmap of iconic children’s programming and you can sample some of this work through her animation demo..

Katie Leigh was a delight to talk with and our excitement shows in this conversation, some excitement shows more than others, but we would like to thank Katie for this opportunity.

Nowhere Toy Archive: “Weird Al” Action Figures…

Nowhere California is diving deep into the abyss of toys and collectibles to bring you the new or the forgotten. In this first installment, we are taking a look at the recent announcement from NECA Toys and their upcoming figures honoring the king of parody music, “Weird Al” Yankovic.

NECA Toys released a preview of one of the figures of the collection. This classic Al figure is patterned towards his earlier days, as you can see with his glasses and short afro, but this edition will come with a more modern look and a second head. The second head depicts the present day Al, with long hair and clean shaven face.

There is no set release date of this figure and the other figures that will make up this collection, so for now we can only expect more eras of Al to be released and the loyal Al fans will be waiting in even worse anticipation.

Which era of Al would you like to see in this collection? There are so many to choose from, will we see Al from UHF or a Claymation Al from the Jurassic Park video? Tell us your thoughts.

Nowhere California Talks With LIVE-EVIL Mastermind..

Back in October, we posted about the horror film LIVE-EVIL and here is the trailer again, if you need a quick refresher…

I was lucky enough to attend this movie’s screening at the 2015 Stan Lee Comikaze and enjoyed every moment of LIVE-EVIL. The movie is a great blend of horror and humor, with a cast and crew that clearly have a passion for the production. LIVE-EVIL is that type of movie you want to watch multiple times and with multiple people, so you can catch every moment.

Now, with that being said, I was lucky enough to have a phone conversation with the writer/director Ari Kirschenbaum and we jumped head first into this movie’s world.

Rocker Scott Weiland dies at 48.

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Legendary rock star Scott Weiland passed away late Thursday night in his sleep in Bloomington, Minnesota. An official Instagram account confirmed Weiland’s death by saying; “Scott Weiland, best known as the lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, passed away in his sleep while on a tour stop in Bloomington, Minnesota, with his band The Wildabouts. At this time, we ask the privacy of Scott’s family be respected.” 

Weiland stormed onto the grunge-metal scene in 1992 with Stone Temple Pilots and their first albums, Core and Purple following in 1994. In 2001-02, Weiland became part of the supergroup Velvet Revolver along with Guns n Roses alumni Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum. They went on to win Best Rock Performance at the 2005 Grammy Awards. With Weiland’s very public battles with addiction, many will speculate as to the cause of his death. For myself, I think I will put on my favorite Stone Temple Pilots song, have a beer, and remember the music of Scott Weiland and how it was a huge part of the soundtrack of my youth. Rest well Scott and thanks.
