HEY DOORMAN VIII: True Tales of an Uncommon Bouncer in Los Angeles by John P. Kildemm Review

A short yet action fueled memoir set in the post 2016 Election era defines the novel by author John P. Kildemm. Titled “HEY DOORMAN VIII: True
Tales of an Uncommon Bouncer in Los Angeles, this 36 page story takes readers through the life of an LA Bouncer, and the experiences he encounters
in a California city where Donald Trump has become President of the United States. Here is an official synopsis:

SEX — VIOLENCE — TRUMP Eight true tales from your wittiest bouncer’s, wittiest bouncer
Mister Kildemm chronicles the night life in the City of Angels as only he can, in the fourth installment of, Hey Doorman. But this time with a biting political edge working in cahoots with his always hilarious edge. That’s two edges people. TWO.

As Jerry Seinfeld once said, “I’m sure he’s having a good laugh over this with his doorman buddies.”

This short yet sweet read is fun yet mind-blowing, as the often overlooked job of a bouncer at a nightclub showcases the struggles one faces with
various patrons, from the would be robber to the wannabe NBA player. While I will say for younger readers that this is a very adult book, featuring
adult language and sexually explicit terminology, overall I think the book was well told and painted a vivid image in one’s head of these insane
situations. The use of pop culture references worked perfectly here, and the humor and wit used by the author is as lightning fast and entertaining
as the author himself.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While it wasn’t the lengthiest of stories, the tales that were told in this memoir are unlike anything I’d
read before and makes you appreciate the men and women who work in the service industry like that and put up with the reckless and chaotic behavior
of trouble causing patrons. It’s a chaos fueled world out there, and author John P. Kildemm has done a marvelous job of bringing that chaos to the
forefront with this novel. If you haven’t yet, be sure to pick up your copies of this book today!

On Request Magazine’s ScareLA 2014 Review!

One of the biggest highlights of our year thus far is the sheer number of opportunities we’ve had to attend some of the biggest conventions in Southern California. From Warped Tour to Vidcon 2014, this year has brought a lot of highlights that have opened up whole new worlds for our magazine to cover. One such event took place on August 9-10th, 2014, and that was the annual horror convention, ScareLA 2014!

Convening in Los Angeles, CA at The Reef, (formerly known as the L.A. Mart), the horror based convention opened up in spectacular fashion. Guests exited the elevator onto the show floor, and were greeted by a suspenseful and horrific sight. As creepy piano music begin to play a seemingly familiar tune, dolls begin to pop out of cribs and toy chests underneath a single corner light, and that tune’s lyrics are artfully written out on a nearby chalkboard, “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep,” followed by a piercing scream that is part human, part something inhuman, followed by people corralling monsters onto another elevator. This spectacular display is but the beginning of the hit ScareLA 2014!

Dedicated to the latest and greatest in this upcoming years Halloween events, the convention showcases professional Hollywood makeup artistry, the upcoming releases of horror films, television and more! Operating on two floors of the Reef, Halloween and Horror vendors big and small fled to ScareLA, including Knotts Scary Farm, Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights, The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor, Ghost Train at Griffith Park, and Wicked Lit’s performances at Mountain View Mausoleum and Cemetery. One of the biggest announcements came from Halloween Horror Nights, who showed up with John Landis, legendary director who announced along with the creative team behind the yearly event that his film, An American Werewolf in London, would be the latest property to become one of the event’s mazes.

ScareLA 2014 was a horror and Halloween lover’s fantasy convention, bringing together the best that the holiday has to offer. From the fun and creative nature of costume and haunted house design, to the frightful terror of professional haunted attractions and horror films, the convention was one of the summer’s biggest highlights, and we here at On Request Magazine look forward to seeing what ScareLA 2015 brings next year!
