Sid is a legend of the silver screen, with a list of over 100 roles to his name and an impact that can be felt in many genres of the film industry. In recent years, Sid has become a mainstay in the convention world and a familiar face to the Days of the Dead loyal.

During Nowhere California’s adventures at Days of the Dead, the guys from Nowhere have made it a point to bump into this legend and we have been lucky enough to sit down twice with the man behind the clown make up..

You Know What They Call Nowhere California In Paris?

Since the inception of Nowhere California, the foundation of this project has been the world of movies and the creative mind behind those creations. The list of our personal favorites can run a mile long and the list of our favorite directors would reach the same length with the name of Quentin Tarantino holding a place near the top of the directors list.

Now, with Tarantino being near the top of our favorite director’s list, you can easily guess that most of his work holds a special place in our movie memories and Pulp Fiction is one of those iconic moments in movie history.

Pulp Fiction was released in 1994 and brought Tarantino into the world of the mainstream. This movie was a perfect storm of talent and the guys from Nowhere had the opportunity to talk with some members of this iconic cast at the 2016 Los Angeles Days of the Dead convention.

In this installment, the guys from Nowhere had the honor of talking to Duane Whitaker and Whitaker played Zed cohort in the infamous Pawn Shop scene. After that conversation, we have the pleasure to talk with the woman behind the sultry cab driver Esmarelda Villalobos and talk with Angela Jones. Finally, to close out this episode, we talk with the man behind the gimp and talk with Stephen Hibbert.

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

(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.

Nowhere California Talks With LIVE-EVIL Mastermind..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

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.

The World Gets Their First Look At Tarantino’s Eight

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

This winter will be cold and Quentin Tarantino plans for the snow to be soaked in blood, as the end of the year will bring his 8th film to theaters and that film is “The Hateful Eight” Anyone that has followed Tarantino’s career will not be surprised by the great cast that has been assembled and the amazing story that will unfold on the screen.

“The Hateful Eight” follows a group of bounty hunters and a prisoner, as they seek shelter from a horrible blizzard and quickly realize that their problems are not all weather related. The level of talent in this movie cannot be measured; the acting talents include Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Channing Tatum, Michael Madsen, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, and Bruce Dern.

“The Hateful Eight” will have a wide release on January 8, 2016, but Quentin does have a special Christmas present for the hardcore cinema fans. In select theaters, “The Hateful Eight” will be presented in Ultra Panavision 70 on Christmas Day.

There might be a few of you that may be confused on the concept of Ultra Panavision 70 or 70mm film presentation. 70mm film is an old school Hollywood concept of present films, as the “Ultra Panavision” method was used in the 1959 classic “Ben Hur” and allows for a wider aspect ratio, while preserving the quality. As Tarantino is a loyal to the classic film presentation, these special screenings of “The Hateful Eight” will be an event to behold.
