A few weeks ago, Nowhere California was introduced to the independent horror/comedy “CONJOINED” and I was quickly intrigued by this bare bones, but highly creative movie. I wrote a review for this movie and posted my thoughts to this website.

Recently, I was able to talk to one of the creative minds behind this movie and talk to Joe Grisaffi. Joe was the director of “CONJOINED” and this interview dives into the evolution of a crazy story idea. Also, our conversation takes a look at Joe’s career and his adventures in the 8-bit video game world.

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.

DEADPOOL: It’s Trailer Eve, Make Sure You Leave Some Chimichangas Out..

‘Twas the night before the trailer and all through the internet, not a creature was stirring but a Merc with a mouth. The time has finally arrived and we are at the eve of the new Deadpool trailer.

Today is the 11th day of the marvelous 12 days of Deadpool and our day started with a ghost of Deadpool past..

Wolverine, Deadpool’s fellow WEAPON X survivor, decided to commandeer the festivities and treat us to this special image. As everyone remembers, the last time we saw these two together was in the conclusion of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the Merc with the Mouth didn’t exactly have a mouth. It’s nice to see this twosome together under better terms.

Now for the main attraction of the 11th day of the 12 days of Deadpool and an appetizer for tomorrow’s new Deadpool trailer..

The excitement is reaching its peak, we received a new TV spot and some truth behind the Easter egg we discovered from Day 7 (Hopefully, this isn’t the last time we’ll see Wolverine), but the main event is only a few hours away.

Ignore your loved ones and stay locked in, as we will hit the final day of the 12 days of Deadpool. Christmas Day will bring onto the world a brand spanking new Deadpool trailer!!

DEADPOOL: Die Hard Is His Favorite, Feel Good Christmas Movie..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

It’s the night before Trailer’s Eve and there is so much to discuss, from the 10th entry in the matronly 12 days of Deadpool to 2 new television spots and one spot featuring brand new footage from this soon to be classic movie.

As with the past 9 days, we begin with the newest entry of the 12 days of Deadpool and today’s installment is another Merc with the Mouth take on a holiday classic, the relaxing burning yule log.

In the most traditional hands, it’s as simple as an actual burning fire in a fireplace and in other hands, it’s a video loop from a discount DVD. This classic has seen many forms, but here is the Deadpool’s “Pool Log”..

Now, as you relax with you “Pool Log”, here is the newest television spot and you will quick see a few new moments from the movie…

This might have been a short clip, but you get a colossal amount. We get a glimpse at the story and what bring Wade Wilson to the superhero party.

The next clip is quick, but very important. This is a special spot for ESPN’s NBA coverage on Christmas Day, but we learn that we will be getting a special look at Deadpool. We can only imagine that this will be the debut of the new “clean” trailer. Also, Deadpool isn’t alone in this clip and we get a special visit from Weasel.

There you have it, this was a very busy 10th day for this Deadpool event. We are in the final 2 days and tomorrow will bring the surprises of “Trailer Eve”. Since “Trailer Eve” is all we know, watch out and be ready for anything!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – I am definitely awake!

(Pilot Porter.Staff Writer)

I write this now being a little over 4 days from my completion of a movie, which I have been anticipating for my entire life. That is not a dramatic sentiment meant to define the gravitas of my eagerness, I was born in 1984 and Return of the Jedi was premiered in 1982, so the math adds up. Growing up a Star Wars fan I had always heard of the possibility of a final trilogy, but once the prequels were put on the docket I among many others started believing that our anticipated final trilogy was no more, left to the annals of the Extended Universe. But then on October 30th, 2012 a shirtless little mouse announced, his owners will make our final trilogy.

They will do it fast, and they will throw a bunch of other stuff in as well, just because we asked nicely. Never let it be said that Walt Disney pictures would not make the most profitable drug dealers in the world, if they turned their attention to organized crime. Most of you reading this have probably been following The Wars for quite some time, so I will spare you the boring history lesson. If you would like to discuss Star Wars history, by all means tweet me, @thedougporter!! Since history discussions will be saved for later, I wanted to write about what The Force Awakens has done for me as a…..it pains me to say this….a lapsed Star Wars fan.

Yes, over the last few years my interest in the fandom of Star Wars has been on a slow, slow, slow, sloth like journey to dormancy. That isn’t to say that the Galaxy far far away had been any less important to me, I have it tattooed on my body…TWICE! I just found myself getting less excited with the “day to day” of the Star Wars fandom. But this movie has AWOKEN (PUN) the fan that waited 5 days outside a theatre for Attack of the Clones.

I think it is fair to say at this point if you’re a fan of Star Wars you have seen this movie at least once, but if you haven’t PLEASE COME BACK AFTER YOU’VE SEEN IT, cause there will be rosebud type spoilers aplenty. I will give you a minute to get out of eye sight before I continue….

Well I think burying the lead at this point is futile so, WTF HAN IS GONE!?!?!?!?!?! I am still in mourning from this scene. I have cried multiple times in my life, but I have wept 4 times in my life. Han’s death was the latest. Now before you judge me for being a copy of cryingfwife.com I would like you to understand something. I spent quite a lot of time growing up by myself watching movies, because as we all know the outside sucks! I would on average watch one of the original trilogy a day. I consistently ran the marathon once I had gotten a TV in my room, so the characters became my pseudo family. Always there when I needed them, never leaving, never making fun of me, always encouraging. Han Solo was the epitome of the man I was hoping to become in my adult life. Now as an adult, I have realized that Han’s death was meant to affect us on an ever deeper level than just losing a familiar figure head, losing Han was the symbol of losing our childhood. The story of Star Wars has always followed Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey and one of the key turning points is The Death of the Mentor. This is the moment that the hero’s innocent, childlike life, is forever changed and puts said hero on the final part of the journey towards heroism.

Han was our mentor, he was the non-believer who we could relate to while watching Luke takes these steps into the force. Now, JJ Abrams wants us to take our own journey with Rey, how do we do that? Remove our mentor. By removing our mentor we have to take this journey with her, we have no one else to look to, we alone are the deciders of our destiny. Plus, added bonus Kylo Ren has become just more evil than Darth Vader in the eyes of the fandom. Which will make his inevitable fight with Luke that much sweeter….unless JJ wants to completely tie up all loose ends and kill him too. Wouldn’t that be something, eh?

No one ever remembers the 6th day of the 12 days of Christmas, but I would bet good money and some less then vital body parts that you will remember what Deadpool has in store on this 6th day of the majestic 12 Days of Deadpool.

On this day, Deadpool and the great team at Joblo.com have bestowed upon us an actual page from the DEADPOOL movie script. This page comes from the script of the Merc with the Mouth and includes his personal notes…

deadpool-script-small

As you can see from the notes, Deadpool loves to dive deep into the important matters of a production and that closes your 6th day of the 12 Days of Deadpool.

I hope I’m not the only one, but these gifts have been insanely awesome and have given the fans a look at what will be in store with the comic book adaptation. An adaptation that looks to be following the source material very closely.

We are at the half way point, so make sure to stay close to your computers and watch out for the next package to be dropped with care from the talented people at DEADPOOLCORE.com
