Interview 18 – Nightmarish Conjurings

So I am a contributing writer for a horror website called Nightmarish Conjurings, created and managed by Shannon McGrew. With the site I am able to watch movies, review them, attend events, and interview filmmakers and actors - but this time I thought it would be great to interview Shannon herself! 1. How was the website Nightmarish Conjurings born? Answer: It was honestly by accident. Four years ago I had just finished reading Stephen King's "It" and was furious with certain aspects of it. Some friends suggested that I start to blog to not only talk about that book but also my love for the genre. I never thought it would be go anywhere and to my surprise it has. 2. Why do you think the genre of horror is so popular? Answer: I think people like the rush. When watching horror a lot of the ...

Interview 10 – Michael Coulombe

On Monday, March 19, 2018 my life changed. In reality though it really changed on January 11, two months prior when, on that beautifully warm day in Los Angeles, I passed out while driving on the 134 freeway. Thankfully I was stuck in traffic. If not, I could have crashed or hit another car. I was on the phone with my business partner Taylor J. Martin. I believe the incident happened shortly after that. But let me begin at the beginning. I worked out that morning - the morning of January 11, 2018. Finally decided that I wanted to do more cardio than I normally do. I usually focus more on weight lifting. For some reason, that morning, I didn't. I felt good, left the gym with a spring in my step. Came home, made a pot of coffee, had a light breakfast and went to my room to get some work don...

Interview 9 – Danny Martinez

I ran into Danny on Instagram a year back. I was impressed by his flair. We chatted and became online friends. I was fascinated with him being both gay AND a wrestler. I mean, that is something you never - if ever - hear about. So this week I would like to introduce you to Danny Martinez, also known as DJ Summers. 1. How do you feel about being known as a gay wrestler? I knew right off the bat I couldn't hide the fact that I'm flamboyant, so I decided to embrace it. at first I was afraid people wouldn't take me seriously because I am gay, but thankfully the locker room and fans embraced it. I've never been seen as a "side show" gimmick either, which I hope I never get booked as that. I always tell people yes, I may be gay but that doesn't determine how I am in the ring. I won't ever try to...

Interview 7 – Taylor J. Martin

This week I present to you my dear friend and producing partner Taylor J. Martin! 1. Who is Taylor J. Martin the man? Well, I would say that I am a man who is consciously present.

Half of me is warm, kind, care-free, understanding and forgiving, and the other half of me is focused, logistical, persistent and pursuant. Win me over with great food, great sunsets and great company. 2. Who is Taylor J. Martin the filmmaker? I love everything filmmaking. The challenges, struggles, and failures to the accomplishments, achievements and successes. I love bringing together a team in making a story come to life.

Interview 5 – MrMeathook

I got my love of horror from my cousin Daryl (YouTuber MrMeatHook.) Growing up he was obsessed with horror films, including the original Friday the 13th AND introduce me to the fan magazine Fangoria.  This eventually led me to become a horror writer and director - so this week I pay tribute to my cousin Daryl on Mimosas with Michael. ----------------------------------- 1. So what is the inspiration behind your YouTube channel? Why that particular format/medium? My inspiration is that I’ve always wanted to entertain, but I’m pretty reclusive and socially awkward. YouTube gives me the opportunity to express my creativity without having people stare at me while I’m doing it. It also allows me to edit out bits that are not funny or would be considered uncouth. 2. What is the reason behind the ...
