A New King of Rock..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)
Satu Runa is not a stranger to the land of Nowhere California. In our early life, we crossed paths in the convention world and learned about the project known as “Queen Gorya.” Now, after a few years and a creative evolution on both sides, Satu has returned to the world of Kickstarter with a different crown on top of her head.

As of this writing, Satu is crowd funding a one woman musical entitled “King Nigel’s Nervous Breakdown” This production was created and stars Satu as the title character who is a rising musician that has to come to terms with a trouble past and over come a nervous breakdown.

I could attempt to explain this project and production more, but I would recommend hearing it from the creator herself.

This is a simple piece, because the information is above for you to consume. As I stated above, the Nowhere California team has been lucky enough to watch Satu escalate and develop her talents. The time we were able to watch “Queen Gorya” go from kickstarter to screen was a lesson of dedication and passion for the craft, from the looks of King Nigel it doesn’t look like anything has change and has only evolved.

There is only a few short days remaining for this project and I would recommend giving this project a shot, even if the goal is reached, continue to support until the time hits zero. Throughout our almost 10 year existence, Nowhere California has taken pride in spotlighting the world of independent creativity and this is a project that deserves to stand center stage.

WHY NOT Variant #4-Why The Apple?!
As strange as this will sound, we have actually done spin off episodes to our “Why Not?” series and every April we ask the different question “Why?!” The differences with these episodes are the quality of the movie we focus on and this edition we reach close to the bottom of the barrel with the 1980 Cannon Film “The Apple”, by the way this is a feature length commentary.

In the past, Nowhere California has had the opportunity to talk with some insanely talented people and this streak has continued with this our conversation with Chantel Riley.

Chantel can be seen currently on Broadway as Nala in “The Lion King”, a role she had the opportunity to play in a production based in Germany.

Also, the world can now see Chantel’s performance as Quincella in the movie “RACE”. “RACE” delves into Jesse Owens’ journey to the 1936 Olympic Games, these games took place in Berlin and we relive Owens history making face off against the handpicked athletes of Adolf Hitler. In the events leading to the Olympics, we learn about Jesse’s life and loves, this is where Quincella enters the picture. Quincella was a well-off admirer of Owens and pursued the athlete like an Olympic medal.
