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”)

As with every convention, the people we meet are the highlights of every event and touching base with Taz was a definite highlight of the Los Angeles Comic Con. Thank you Taz for talking with us and, to everyone reading this, check out “As Flesh Decays” This level of death metal is perfect for any hardcore horror fan.

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.

A Look From Nowhere At A Prehistoric Slasher Film..

The Nowhere California team could tell you dozens of stories from our teenage lives, but that is for a different time and when the statute of limitations expires, so we are ready to let you in on the teenage exploits of Kansas Bowling.

At the age of 15, Kansas began to develop the story of “B.C. Butcher” with her friend Kenzie and, by the age of 17, Kansas directed the feature film adaptation of “B.C. Butcher.” The production for this movie quickly picked up steam and brought some cult icons in front of Kansas’ camera, such as Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) and Kato Kaelin (The O.J. Simpson Trail).

As the film wrapped and word of mouth began to grow, the creation of Kansas caught the legendary eye of Lloyd Kaufman and he picked up “B.C. Butcher” for distribution through the Troma Entertainment banner.

At the recent Los Angeles Day of the Dead Convention, that took place in April, the guys from Nowhere had the pleasure to talk with Kansas Bowling and her stepmother, Miranda Robin. The conversation delves into the production of the film and the journey through the world of independent filmmaking.

The Days of the Dead coverage take an animated turn and the guys from Nowhere talk with Angus Oblong.

There might be a rare few that might be clueless on who this man is or it might be the other way around, so here is a quick refresher to jog your memory.

Angus Oblong is a writer and illustrator that entered the published landscape with the book “Creepy Susie and 13 Other Tragic Tales For Troubled Children” This well-written and illustrated book gave the world a look at Angus’ talents. Also, “Creepy Susie..” lead to the animated series known as “The Oblongs”

This animated series transferred characters from the original book to the small screen and brought the world of Angus Oblong to a larger audience, two members of this audience were the guys from Nowhere.

At the 2016 Days of the Dead convention, Phil and Josh took the opportunity to talk with the mind behind these creations..
