Interview with Rowby Goren, Writer for Pink Lady ...and Jeff

“You may or may not be aware of this, but I’ve talked a lot of shit about Pink Lady …and Jeff. So much so, that one of the writers felt the need to set the record straight. So I now get the chance to pick the mind of someone who was a writer for Laugh-In, directed a movie starring a current U.S. Senator, wrote alongside Sid Caesar, and won an Emmy for writing jokes on Hollywood Squares.”

An Interview with Michelle Goodeve, Degrassi's Ms. Avery

“Earlier this year, I spoke to Dan Woods, Mr. Raditch himself, and through that connection I got the opportunity to interview the other much-beloved teacher from the series. I’m talking of course about Michelle Goodeve, who played Ms. Karen Avery for four seasons on Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High. What you may not know is that Michelle’s been busy ever since as a producer, screenwriter, and story editor, writing episodes of several Canadian TV shows. But if that’s not enough to pique your interest, Michelle is also a licensed pilot, with a special passion for flying antique airplanes. Yes, in real life, Ms. Avery flies airplanes. Seriously!”

An Interview with Albert Moses, Beloved British Character Actor

“It’s not easy to make your way in a strange country, but to make your way and end up a Knight of the Order of St. John? Not such an easy thing to do. Throw in some documentary work, motorcycle stunts, and being James Bond’s costar not once, but twice, and that sounds like a sweet deal to me. The only man I know of who did all this is Albert Moses, so join me as we discuss crass comedy, Dinka documentaries, manic Maharajahs, and much, much more!”

An Interview with Dan Woods, Degrassi's Mr. Raditch

Dan Woods played teacher (and later, principal) Dan Raditch on all five seasons of Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High, and then returned to play Raditch again on Degrassi: The Next Generation for four more seasons. Despite being one of the ‘adults’, to me Mr. Raditch has always been a key ingredient in the Degrassi formula, and the show just hasn’t been the same without him.”

An Interview with Tony Timpone, Editor of Fangoria

“I found him to be a pretty cool guy. A very busy guy, but he was more than willing to go along with my inane questions when he had the time. So without further ado, join us for some light conversation about horror movies, jerks with movie cameras, and why that little star-watch section in People you like so much is bad juujuu all around!”

An Interview with Piers Anthony

“But for the most part, he’s gotten a bad rap. Sure, his books are pervy to the extreme (not that I’m complaining), but his characters are remarkably easy to spend time with, so if you can keep your sensibilities from being offended too much in the first few chapters of any given Xanth story, it’s worth it in the end.”

An Interview with Ed Glaser, Founder of Dark Maze Studios

“I know, his name may not ring too many bells, but he and his film company Dark Maze Studios have been making quite a name for themselves recently, as anyone who’s seen the infamous Press Start can tell you. And they’ll be in for quite the profile boost when they become the official American distributors for the next great film from the makers of Dünyayi Kurtaran Adam: Turkish Rambo!

An Interview with John Wilson, Razzie Founder

“All my hard work in trying to handicap the Razzies this year finally paid off, and this site gained the attention of the grand Razzie poobah himself, John Wilson, the guy who created the Golden Raspberry Awards back in 1981, and is still Head Razzberry to this day.

“If you’re wondering what a Head Razzberry does, I couldn’t tell you, but I do know he’s one of the founding fathers of the Bad Movie Movement. Without the Razzies, the Agony Booth and a lot of other bad movie websites wouldn’t exist today.”

An Interview with Bob Sullivan, Clonus screenwriter

Despite the obvious similarities to Clonus, which I laid out pretty clearly in my review of The Island, the lawsuit itself was a contentious subject among fans of the two films. Now comes word that the issue has been put to rest, more or less, as has the lawsuit. According to an inside source, Clonus Associates v. DreamWorks was settled out of court in late 2006, reportedly for a seven-figure sum to be paid to Clonus Associates.

An Interview with Robert Fiveson, Director of Parts: The Clonus Horror

“A cult favorite thanks to its appearance on Mystery Science Theater 3000 during the Sci-Fi Channel years, Parts: The Clonus Horror also happens to be one of the films recapped on this very site. Roughly a year ago, I received an email from a reader saying I had kept him laughing deep into the night with my recap of Parts. Imagine my astonishment when that reader turned out to be Robert S. Fiveson, director and co-producer of Parts: The Clonus Horror.”

An Interview with Norman Gary

Norman E. Gary, PhD is one of the country’s preeminent apiculturists—better known to most people as a ‘bee wrangler’—and he’s been providing trained bee services for movie and TV productions for over forty years. He’s handled thousands of bees on the sets of movies like The X Files: Fight the Future, Terror Out of the Sky, and Invasion of the Bee Girls, not to mention two Agony Booth-recapped films: The Savage Bees and Leonard Part 6.”
