Strange Kids Club, a virtual clubhouse of B-movie monsters and pop culture retro geekdom, scored the first interview with How to Survive the Strange show creators Bryan White and John Herman.

Thanks to the incredible access and audience that the Internet provides, independent creative minds are getting a better chance at sharing some really cool ideas. Point in case is a recent web series developed by web designer and horror blogger Bryan White of Cinema Suicide and jack of all trades John Herman called How to Survive the Strange.

Now check out the interview! It is awesome!

The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The first rule of our new web series How to Survive the Strange is: TALK ABOUT “HOW TO SURVIVE THE STRANGE” AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! Have you seen episode one? We have a lot of fun making the show, and we’d love it if lots of horror and comedy fans got the chance to see it. Want to help? To give you a bit of incentive, we are having our first contest. The prizes are: Fight Club (SIGNED) by the cult fiction hero Chuck Palahniuk and Locke & Key (volume one) Welcome to Lovecraft (SIGNED) by incredible suspense novelist and best-selling author Joe Hill. One winner gets both prizes!

So how do you win? There are four ways (and hence multiple chances to win):

1. Invite your Twitter friends to check out the new web series with your best 140 character pitch. In your tweet, include a link: (don’t shorten the link). Be sure to use #thestrange so we can find you. Heck, that only leaves you 95 characters!

2. Watch the first episode at Funny or Die and leave us a nice comment. Again, put #thestrange at the end of your comment so we know you are playing to win.

3. Invite your Facebook friends to watch the first episode by sharing the link: and perhaps suggesting they become fans via our How to Survive the Strange Facebook fan page! Again, put #thestrange at the end of your message so we know you are playing to win.

4. Watch How to Survive the Strange at and leave us a nice comment. Again, put #thestrange at the end of your message so we know you are playing to win.
