Fango NY - Day 1

The first day of the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors. Things went reasonably smooth. All the one-sheets, postcards, and banners came in from the printers in time and they all turned out pretty fucking slick. But with all the shit going down, I'd forgotten to make a new DVD of the trailer. The single most important thing and I'd blown it. I FedExed Mia the keys to my place, she made a copy of the movie, rushed it over to have a DVD made, then FedExed it, along with my keys, to New Jersey.

New Jersey. That's another story. It's impossible to drive anywhere without getting lost. But don't get me started.

Attendance was low, and many of the vendors were unhappy -- they had no one to sell their merchandise to -- but we were there to create awareness of the movie and to promote Denise as a new figure on the horror movie scene. So we networked and talked to the press (UPN, Showtime, Fangoria) and Denise and Cassandra smiled a lot, posed for pictures with the fans and signed lots of autographs. For us, we thought it went quite well.

John Landis (American Werewolf in London) came by. He almost walked right past the booth but I stopped him, sent him into a U-turn back to our booth so he could watch the trailer and pose for some pics. He seemed to like both the trailer and the ladies. How could he not?

They charmed everyone they met. Though some of the men were a bit intimidated, ultimately their curiosity would get the best of them and they'd come over. I think we gathered some new fans.

Who else did we meet? Russ Streiner and John Russo (Night of the Living Dead) both very cool cats, John Gulager (Feast, Project Greenlight) who was a very sweet guy, as was his dad Clu Gulager (Return of the Living Dead) and Michael Rooker (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer) who was pretty damn cool as well. Not to mention porn star and record holder of the world's biggest gang bang, Jasmin St. Claire. Now that's hard to beat.

Day 33 of 100 blogs in 100 days goes along way to justifying the theory that there is truly a blog for everyone and everything, from Dan Mayer.

Very Nice. I am really impressed with the great blog you have here! I was wondering how long you have been doing this?

I have a Nano-Technology
Energy Patch
site/blog. It has some simply amazing testimonials regarding the unique
technology that is good for those from 10-110. Just see if you can believe this Nano-Technology
Energy Patch related stuff. Imagine a 12 year old girl weighing less than 100 lbs establishing the
World Squat record of 275 lbs not once but 3 times !

How about an 83 Yr Old Lady that could not stand and had to be carried back and forth to the bathroom and on a Thursday evening in 15 minutes she was not only able to stand, but also walked across the room just holding onto her daughter's arm. The next night, she and her daughter were arm wrestling and for several minutes were locked in the center position. Her daughter the next day said "That was my mom's WEAK arm" :-)

Come and check out our LifeWave Energy
site/blog if you are interested in getting more energy and or sleeping better than you have in years, and I think you will be very impressed also :-)
