(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

It has never been a secret with Nowhere California that we have made it a point to shine our spotlight on the world of independent creativity. The projects can come from any form of media, if it will spark our interest, we will do everything possible to spread the word.

At the 2017 WonderCon, we crossed paths with two projects that are currently attempting to gain funds through Kickstarter and these campaigns are in their final days. We want to give you the vital information to these projects and, if you see fit, we hope that you will take the time out to support these creative talents.

The first project comes from the mind of Jemma Young and the goal of this project is to release the first printed collection of “Children of Eldair”. “Children of Eldair” is the comic book that Jemma created and current can be seen online at www.eldair.com

This comic follows Embera and Koe, as they try to piece together Embera’s mysterious past and Koe takes a journey through multiple worlds. This description might be basic, but the reality of the work is amazing.

The clock has not ran out for this project, dive deeper into this world and support the “Childern of Eldair” kickstarter by CLICKING HERE

The next project is from a past visitor to Nowhere California and the man behind Wannabe Press, Russell Nohelty. Russell is in the final days of this successful project, but there is still time to have your name attached to something special.

This project is for “Monsters and Other Scary Shit: A Monster Anthology”. This is a collection of monster themed entries and these entries are fueled by a group of creators that are ready to unleash something special.

JOIN THE FIGHT! Help the HACK PACK!

(Nicholas Dye/ Staff Writer)

The guys here at Nowhere California have launched a new campaign that, at the very least, will get us some awesome shirts made, and at best, we might just earn some money that we can put towards our convention expenses and equipment costs.

We have designed an exclusive “HACK PACK” t-shirt and the short goal is to sell 14 shirts which will get them to print. If we can reach a goal of 50 shirts, then we will actually make some money to put towards expanding our horizons at Nowhere California.

 

The campaign can be found at http://www.booster.com/nowhereca and the shirt runs a total of $19.99 with shipping included. They are 100% cotton high quality t-shirts that you can show off at conventions or comic shops. BUT WAIT!! THERE’S MORE!! The first 14 people who purchase shirts will receive ALL of our interviews and content from the upcoming Stan Lee’s Comikaze before the general public does.

We here at Nowhere California don’t usually like to pander but…OKAY OKAY we have never been above pandering to get listeners and now we hope that same shameless groveling will get you to join the HACK PACK and sport our mildly suggestive t-shirt!! Excelsior!!!!

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.

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..

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 Dives Into Some Independent Ink..

This might sound like a broken record, but the team of Nowhere California loves the world of independent creativity. It’s a world that birthed Nowhere California and we love to shine a spotlight into the area of art.

It began with “Queen Gorya”, then we took a trip to hell with “Oh, Hell”, and the guys recently received an education with “Getting Schooled..” At the recent Los Angeles Days of the Dead convention, Nowhere California returned to the printed page and talked with the mind behind Wannabe Press, Russell Nohelty.

In this conversation, Russell opens up about what got him to start Wannabe Press and mission for the creative works that might get lost in the mainstream publication world.

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2015 Stan Lee’s Comikaze Convention is almost over and it’s time to revisit a friend from our conventions past.

Back in 2013, the guys from Nowhere made their way to Long Beach to cover the 5th Annual Long Beach Comic and Horror Convention. At this event, the guys talked to a lot of talented people and decided to record several interviews with some individuals from the independent comic book world..

As we talked to these great artists and creators, one conversation stood out and that was with the creator of “Oh, Hell..” George Wassil. The story of the creation and ideas behind his comic stood out to the guys from Nowhere, so a creative friendship was born.

Since that first meeting, both projects evolved and the opportunity to cross paths presented itself at the Comikaze event, so..

screen-shot-2015-11-10-at-1-24-15-pm

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

In November, the creative minds of Mystery Science Theater 3000 launched a kickstarter in the hopes to relaunch this classic series and the loyal cult of the series have answered their call. In a short period of time the original goal was met and new information for the relaunched series was announced.

cvj-a1zxiaan9cp

As the new goal points were reached, Joel Hodgson would reveal the exciting possibilities that would be coming to the relaunch of the series and these were stated as possibilities, since Joel would say nothing could be set in stone until the kickstarter was finished. These announcements have been exciting to say the least and have revealed the new members of the cast; such as Jonah Ray as the guy launched into space and Felicia Day as Kinga Forrester, who is the daughter of MST3k original mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester. Also, in another piece of classic offspring news, Patton Oswalt has been announced to step in the role of TV’s Frank’s son and will be stepping in the role of TV’s Son of TV’s Frank.

Now, with all of that excitement out of the way, it is time for the important information and this kickstarter is in the final stretch. The goal is to reach the proper amount to produce 12 episodes and there is under 6 days left to meet that goal, so PLEASE go to their kickstarter page by CLICKING HERE and help reboot something that deserves to be rebooted.

Let’s Kickstart The Satellite Of Love..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

There has been activity at the Gizmonic Institute and it’s time to return to the Satellite of Love, because the legendary crew of Mystery Science Theater 3000 are preparing for a new voyage and they need your help.

SHOUT! Factory has acquired Mystery Science Theater 3000 and SHOUT! has shown in the past their great love towards the world of cult entertainment, but the surprises didn’t stop there and the announcement of possible new episodes was made by the creator of the series, Joel Hodgson.

“I am thrilled to team with Shout! Factory, one of ‘MST3K’s’ greatest supporters, to once again pick up the creative mantle. It’s been a long time coming and I feel ready for the show’s reboot and hopefully lots of new iterations in different media. I’m also looking forward to working with both creative pros and the loyal fan base who have been inspired by our humble show over the years…Actually, I’m not sure if there really is such a thing as a humble show, let me check on that,” Joel commented and the “Bring Back Mystery Science Theater 3000’ kickstarter was launched.

The project is currently live and their goal is to make $2,000,000 in the next 30 days, so the world can get new episodes and a new generation can learn the proper enjoyment of less than great movies.
