A Nowhere Detour To The Underworld..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 The holidays have been drowned away by the New Year’s hangovers, so the time has come to return to our coverage of Stan Lee’s 2017 Los Angeles Comic Con. The hiatus may have been longer then we hoped, but this spotlight is focused sharply on a talented entry from the world of independent comic books.

In this installment, we continue our adventures into Artist Alley and talk with the creative minds behind “Olive and the Underworld,” Emily Felt and Laura West. This conversation delves into the books creation and development of this story of an orphaned goth girl named Olive and the rollercoaster life she lives, trying to fit in and find a home. As the speed bumps seems to grow, her world and her classmate’s world change in a tragic twist of fate.

I can continue to describe this story, but a better description will come from the creators and not from me, so

Send In The Creepy F*cking Clowns For The New “IT” Trailer..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

The track record for clowns in modern society has been a mixed bag of emotions, there is the fun loving and cholesterol jacked Ronald McDonald from everyone’s food coma dreams. Also, in recent years, we have a small group of half-wits across the country that try to freak out little kids. Now, the clown that would make the half-wits run in fear and make them need a change of pants has returned. The trailer for the upcoming big screen remake of “Stephen King’s IT” has arrived.

Stephen King’s adaptations have a pretty strong history, love or hate them the movies have been memorable and “IT” looks like it will be in the same boat with the original TV movie. The Losers’ Club seem to have been collected with the right amount of sympathy and care, this will be a group that you will want to follow.

Pennywise is a whole different story and I mean that in the most positive way, as with any remake, there is a fear of losing a vital part of the original’s heart. In the original 1990 TV movie, Tim Curry brought this literary clown to life and gave Pennywise a level of creepiness that the talented Curry can only reach. In this new vision of a classic, Bill Skarsgård avoids the traps of copying the performance and seems to crank the creepy knob past 11.

Two Paths Cross At Last..

This installment of Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Stan Lee Los Angeles Comic Convention has a short back story and that will lead us into the conversation with the multi-talented, Joe Ochman.

In the early days of Nowhere, the team would never have imagined that we would conduct interviews with people from the entertainment world and gain actual connections with this talented world, but that changed with the chance meeting with Satu and Steve J. Palmer from “Queen Gorya”. After that meeting, Steve J. Palmer started to line up interviews for the guys from Nowhere and one of those interviews was going to be with Joe Ochman.

Ochman is a multi-talented performer that has delved into many aspects of the entertainment world, he has taken his talented from the stage to the screen and behind the scenes. The chance to talk with Joe was an opportunity that the Nowhere California team couldn’t wait to talk with him, but a few speed bumps appeared in the way (so goes the life of the independent podcaster) It took a little time, but good things come to those who wait and we jumped to the chance to talk with Joe at the 2016 Stan Lee Comic Con.

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.

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..

Grand Theft Parsons Writer Invades Nowhere…

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)
In the early planning stages of Nowhere California, the idea of conducting interviews was the furthest thought from our minds and at most a pipe dream. As time progressed, we started covering conventions and building connections. One of those connections grew from Josh’s fandom of a particular independent movie and the movie is “Grand Theft Parsons”

“Grand Theft Parsons” was released in 2004 and was based on the life of Gram Parsons or Gram’s afterlife to be exact. During Gram’s rise in the world of music, he made a pact with his roadie/best friend Phil Kaufman (played in the movie by Johnny Knoxville) that had to be fulfilled after one of their deaths. The pact was that the surviving friend would take the body of the deceased out to the desert and set their soul free. After Gram’s passing in 1973, Phil had to follow through with the promise and it wasn’t as easy as you think.

One of the major aspects on Nowhere California was the ability for Josh and Phil to talk about the things that are important to them, independent movies were at the top of the list and “Grand Theft Parsons” was an important part of that category.

An opportunity presented itself and Josh jumped at it. The opportunity was to talk with the writer of “Grand Theft Parsons”, Jeremy Drysdale and here is that conversation..

Also, if you are an avid Nowhere California listener, Phil and Josh recorded a special edition of “Why Not” to discuss this movie…
Why Not #11-Why Not Grand Theft Parsons?

As we are always prone to thank people a lot. We would like to send a huge thank you to Jeremy for this amazing conversation. It’s rare to meet someone that you respect and enjoy their work, it a whole different story when you get to talk to them. Thank you!
