This week’s special guest is none other than Canadian born San Francisco artist, Dirty Donny Gillies! If you’ve been keeping track at home, Donny was in issue 6 of the Long Gone Loser zine and now he is on episode 125 of the podcast 16 years later. Who’d ever have thought? But alas, here he is and he tells all about his art and getting involved with the guys from Metallica and his love of Ed Roth and what brought him to Australia and all that cool stuff. Hell yeah! Also, the music… he requested all Australian bands cos he loves Australian rock n roll so there ya go, that’s pretty exciting! You can listen in right now by clicking on THIS LINK. (more…)

Okay, bust this! Back in January of 2006, I was lucky enough to interview the one and only Nicole Stoffman. “Who?” I hear you say? Well maybe this will refresh your memory… she was better known to us as the starlet who played Degrassi Diva, Stephanie Kaye in Season 1 of Degrassi Junior High. Stephanie was most amusing. Every guy wanted to be with her, every girl wanted to be her. Well, all except Voula. But that’s cos she had a crap dad who wouldn’t let her go to the school dance because they had boys there. Regardless, Stephanie was always one to shake things up. Remember when she tried hitting on that soap star and he gave her his phone number and he tried to put the moves on a 14 year old Steph in his white corvette? Or when Wheels went out on a date and everyone thought Steph was a slut and she’d nail anyone at any time? Or that time when she won the role of school president because she offered guys kisses if they voted for her? Of course you do! You watched it cos it’s awesome. We all did. Degrassi is like the best show for highschool kids that has ever hit the airwaves. Like remember when Rick’s dad beat him up cos he gave Joey a can of coke? Not that it’s related to anything to do with this interview but I just remembered it. Anyway, here is my interview with with Nicole Stoffman that was featured in issue #13 of Long Gone Loser. Read on and enjoy… even if she didn’t remember who Claude Tanner was but then again, she wasn’t in the series then so we let that slide here at the LGL office. (more…)
