In a possibly misguided attempt to lift the
veil and show you what happens behind the scenes here at Fango, we decided it
would be fun to share chat logs from conversations with our team. These are
part intimate chat, part wrestling promo and all about letting you know what we
do here and what we have in the works.
This week, Editor-in-Chief Chris Alexander
and Dave Pace talk about this Sunday’s premiere of our WALKING DEAD live blog:
Dave Pace: We do a lot of thinking here at FANGORIA
labs, thinking about ways to keep making the experience for the fans more
awesome and more immersive. The Live Dead Blog is a pretty damned cool step in
that direction as we are inviting the FANGORIA faithful to gather round our
corner of the interwebs and watch THE WALKING DEAD with us and comment on the
show in real time!
Chris Alexander: Indeed. It's been a long time since I've
seen the kind of magic one two punch of pop culture fever and genuinely
fantastic entertainment rolled into one, and even LONGER since that combo has
graced the horror world. THE WALKING DEAD, in its third season shows not only no
sign of losing steam, it is, so far, better than it’s ever been. I love it a
lot and I love talking about what I love so hell, this is a grand idea for all
of us to rage live about this small screen masterpiece of melodrama and the
Dave Pace: Definitely. THE WALKING DEAD is just taking
it by storm out there and everybody is watching the show and talking at the
screen like it knows or cares where the hell Carl took off to this time. We
realized people just love talking about this show and wouldn't it be great to
build a place where the hardcore horror fan can come and sink their teeth into
it? So we did it, we built the ultimate living room to watch the show in and
gave you the keys to the joint. Now you can come hang out and watch the show
with us and our guests.
So Chris, maybe you can tell the good folks
what they can expect from you on Sunday as you steer this yacht.
Chris Alexander: Expect real chat from real
horror fans micro analyzing the greatest contemporary zombie entertainment
there is. I just wanna have fun riffing with everyone.
Dave Pace: Yeah, I think that's really the bottom line
of it - I mean sure we can talk about "social tv" and marketing talk, but the bottom line is I just want to dig on a show with a bunch of people who
already speak my language. It's about that shared experience. That's the point
behind the propeller head technology, bringing us together to experience
something. All you need to do to get in on the action is follow the link at the
end of all this jabbering and the sign in with your Facebook account if you
want to post comments. That's it. No signing up for anything new, no stupid
security questions. You are just in and enjoying the show with us. I'm pretty
goddamn psyched for this!
Chris Alexander: Let the dead walk and
the geeks talk, let's go!
