Since they closed up publishing a year ago,a handful of fans have been waxing enthusiasm upon what Fangoria magazine meant to them,even though its glory days were in the early 80s and sadly became a monopoly-esque comglamorate in the late 80s that made it(along with its conventions) as the only place in town to get exposure. Fango was also never kind to the little guy who was indie-to-the-hilt(not corporate Sundance/Hollywood indie) and burned it back on him,which is what drove the little guy to the many latter magazines and genre sites that widely opened up in the mid 00s/2000s that caused Fango to mightily fall in 2009.
Today comes news that Fangoria magazine is planning a comeback into the printed market format,which might have those hungering for a Fango comeback heavily marking out(or,as the fanboys love to coin it,geeking out).
As far as it goes for me,I’m not moved by it nor do I care if they return although it would be really nice if they completely keep the like of Tom DeFeo,his crew,and(most importantly of all) Tony Timpone out of the mix and return to the convention circuit for the sake of having shows/events in Los Angeles,Las Vegas,San Francisco/San Jose,Chicago,and New York as those areas are in desperate need of conventions that the likes of DaysOfTheDead,Monsterpalooza,Horrorhound,Mad Monster Party,Monster Mania,and Flashback Weekend never care to consider travelling to do shows in.
Otherwise,don’t expect to see me too excited about Fangoria planning their return to publishing since I just want to see them take their baby steps and see where they go from there.
BTW: A Big Fuck You to all of the PC leaning male feminists that are out there,for that crowd is much worse than the SJWs. And A Really Big Fuck You to Nikolaus Cruz for shooting up his school in Parkland,Florida and killing 17 people,for he’s as bad as those two Columbine asshole shooters(Rest In Piss And Shit) and the far right wing lunatics that place the blame on progressive liberals.
I’ll just close out this blog entry with this rare performance from The Power Station(in the mid 90s),as they perform in front of a really dead audience…
