An Interview with Tony Timpone, Editor of Fangoria
You thought there would be no more episodes of Mendo Talks to Rather Interesting People from Around the Internet, but guess what? It’s time for yet another episode of Mendo Talks to Rather Interesting People from Around the Internet! Yay for me!
Well, kiddies, the outlook wasn’t sunny when ol’ Mendo was coming home from Iraq last November: the interview with Piers Anthony hadn’t gone as well as I’d hoped, and nobody was responding to any of my solicitations.
There we were in Kuwait, waiting for days for that plane ride home, and on one of my more masochistic whims, I went out searching for interview subjects again. Since I’d just bought Brutal Massacre on DVD earlier in the day, I noticed a review from Fangoria Magazine on the back, and so I sent an email to: Tony Timpone, Editor.
Amazingly, he replied within hours, saying he’d do anything for a “real American hero” like me! You know, I normally can’t stand it when I get people thanking me for joining the Army, but that really touched me, ya know?
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!
