The following is the finale of Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Los Angeles Days of the Dead convention and in this installment the guys have fallen prey to some top secret clown business, as Josh and Doug talk with horror icon Sid Haig.

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.

When we first started the podcast, the idea of conducting interviews was far from a reality in our eyes. Now, with our 6th convention in the books, it definitely is a surreal moment to talk with the creative minds behind the works we love and the feeling is indescribable, when these people remember us.

It was a great honor to meet Felissa in 2014 and the entire Nowhere California team had the same feelings as we crossed passed with Felissa at the Days of the Dead convention in April.

Since that debut event, the Days of the Dead crew have left their bloody marks across the country and have the continuing goal of presenting a convention “for fans, by fans.”

The Days of the Dead convention will be returning to the west coast in April, the guest list keeps building and this year’s event will spill some ink into the bloody mix, as this leg of the Days of Dead will present their first ever tattoo expo.
