I was first introduced to my next interview subject, Lezlie Deane, through my friendship with former interview subject JJ Cohen, who co-starred with her in the 1988 horror favorite 976-Evil. I sent her a friend request shortly afterward, and we got to know each other well enough to do an interview in 2015. Unfortunately, a […]

On Monday, October 2nd, 2017, it was officially announced that singer Tom Petty has passed away. When his passing was officially announced, I felt the same way I did about Prince’s passing.

The Flashback Interview: Nichole McAuley

I first came across Nichole McAuley when I saw she was going to be a guest at The Hollywood Show, a popular autograph convention based in California.

My first exposure to my next interview subject came via HBO Comedy in the 00s. I had read a review of the 1980 comedy Serial in a 1987 book of movie reviews from People Magazine. Intrigued by the review, I saw Serial on HBO Comedy and loved the tale of hippies transforming into yuppies on […]

The Flashback Interview: Rip Taylor

by Johnny Capson March 9, 2017
Rip Taylor is a very unique performer. With his rapid wit, quickfire puns and bursts of confetti, he’s been the Clown Prince Of Pandemonium for more than half-a-century. In the 90s, I saw him in a variety of projects ranging from Ducktales The Movie and Wayne’s World 2 on the big screen to Amazon Women […]

The Flashback Interview: Liane Curtis

Pop Geeks’ Flashback Interview: Jack O’Halloran

I asked him three questions, and in […]
