Just about a year ago, to the day, we were in the middle of "campaigning" for votes in The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards, where The Steve & Crypto Show was nominated, for the first time, in the 'Best Podcast' category.
I've mentioned on multiple occasions that being nominated for that particular award, was one of the forst goals I had personally for the podcast I enjoyably co-host with my good friend Caleb Lowery, aka Crypto Zoo (not to be confused with that scam by the annoying Paul brothers. Caleb used the name first!).
Other early mission for my show, was to launch a merch shop, and to get 1000 plays/streams/downloads a month. We got the merch thing going, and hopefully with the help of our friends, followers, and listeners, we continue to grow to that level of listenership and beyond. Keep spreading the word, and we will get there!
I do highly recommend heading to the official Rondo Award site and checking out the whole ballot, and consider voting in as many categories as possible. Who knows, you might find and wanna support a new author, movie, magazine, artist, podcast or some kinda creator in the horror genre you didn't know. I love digging in to the ballot and finding new folks to support. I believe voting runs into April.
Acrostar Films, and give them a vote along with The Steve & Crypto Show.
Funny I should mention being in a movie...
If you know me, you know that I've always loved film, particularly horror. Ya probably didn't know that I've always kinda wanted to be in a movie or two, which has almost come to fruition over the last year.
Hopefully you take a minute to check out this great feature film debut from a talented young filmmaker named Matthew Mark Hunter, who we will refer to as MMH from here on out, because I'm too lazy to type it. 😉 Get the details at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nightmares-unleashed-an-original-horror-film#/
If you're a regular listener of The Steve & Crypto Show, you've heard our buddy Jack, the weirdo behind Stapled Spine, do his recurring segment on our show.
On top of that, I had a great piece, covering the history of horror hosts in the Pacific Northwest, published in Scary Monsters Magazine, which is a personal favorite. Yes it was a letter, but it covered 3 pages, so it counts!
One more thing before I wrap this up, while on the event topic, we were just invited to join the festivities at another fun new convention here in Washington State called Squatchcon. Squatchcon will take place in Port Angeles, WA the last weekend of March. We will release more info once everything's set in stone. Keep up on that event at https://www.squatchconpa.com/comicon-port-angeles
