Hindsight is 2020




As we close out the 2010s it seems natural to reflect back on the past decade. The 2010s were certainly a decade of change for me, both personally and professionally. On the personal front, an 18 year marriage ended in 2012. My TV show, Dr. Gangrene Presents, also stopped airing on Nashville’s CW station that same year. My dad passed away in 2017 and my biological father the following year. I lost 2 dogs in the span of 2 months in 2017 as well, including my best buddy Buster the dachshund.

 But, offsetting all of that, I have actually been more productive than I have been in YEARS. In 2013 I wrote a number of short stories, most of which were published in various outlets, and I published a short story collection called Dr. Gangrene’s Tales from Parts Unknown in 2014. I completed a Youtube series called The Fantastic Films of Vincent Price where I made a video for every single Vincent Price movie. I won 5 Rondo Awards in the 2010s, hosted movies at 2 drive-ins (including the annual Creepy Cruise-in in Georgetown, IN), kept our Horror Hootenanny punk show going (16 years and counting) and hosted the annual live show at Wonderfest with a number of special guests including Caroline Munro, Sara Karloff, Victoria Price, Bill Malone, and John Amplas.

2019 was my 20th Anniversary as a TV horror host. The first episode aired on July 1, 1999. To celebrate the event Dr. Gangrene returned to the Nashville scarewaves with a new show called Dr. Gangrene’s Cinetarium, which aired each week in October on Nashville’s CW 58 at 7pm Saturday nights.

This year I also: Won a Rondo Award for Best Column in Scary Monsters Magazine

 And I made other personal appearances, live hostings and podcast guest appearances.

 Next year promises to be another good one, and I have some big plans for the following months. But more on that later! Thank you all for your continued support, I appreciate each and every one of you groovy monster kids from the bottom of my gangrenous heart.

Greetings Fright Fans!

Big news! I'm proud to announce I won a Rondo Award for Best Column in this year's Rondo Award!

This is the 3rd consecutive year I've won this category for my Scary Monsters Column, for which I'm truly honored. A huge thank you to everyone who voted for me and for all your support throughout the year, and to Scary Monsters Magazine for the opportunity to write this column - btw, Scary Monsters won for Best Classic Magazine, too!

I'll be picking up the statue at Wonderfest here in a couple of weeks, so I'll be sure to post a photo here. Thank you again, everyone, and here's to another year of Scary articles!
