Well I’m very excited and honored to announce the very first featured Dusker of the month! None other than From Dusk Till Cons very own, Mrs. Stray!
Most veteran posters know Mrs. Stray as our fun-loving, mother of three, stalking extraordinaire! For those of you that don’t know her, get ready to! So, without further a due, I present Interview with a Mrs. Stray….
Malice Psychotik: So, how does it feel to be the first FDTC Featured Dusker of the Month?
Mrs. Stray: A true honor. I have met some great people on FDTC…I’m glad I get to pop the Featured Dusker cherry.
M.P: Well it is an honor to get the chance to interview you. You may not be a Hollywood movies star, but you know I’d like to see some of them raise 3 kids and hold a job!
Mrs. S: Aww now you’ve got me blushing. Actually our goal is to have more kids than the Angelina Jolie compound but I don’t think we’re gonna make it at this pace. I am also rather proud of being married for 12 years, at least I got her beat in that department.
M.P.: Ha Ha! That is true! Well let’s let the readers know you a little better. What is it like in the daily life of Mrs. Stray?
Mrs. S: Since I am a mother of 3 children and work fulltime, I am pretty busy. Pretty much get out of work at 4:30am and sleep, once the beauty rest is complete, I then take care of kids (summer), find a homeless person and beat them within an inch of their life, work out and then head back to work. Typical mom stuff – I’m pretty domesticated.
M.P: So that’s why the homeless numbers are down in the area! Wow! Ever find time in your schedule to watch a movie or read a book? If so what are some favorites?
Mrs. S: Never have time to read but I love watching movies. Me and the rest of the patients in my ward have to watch movies approved by the doc – so mostly Disney films to keep us calm.
M.P: Yeah those psych-wards can be a drag right? Well I’m sure you find time for music. Any Favorite bands or songs?
Mrs. S: I LOVE EVERYTHING COUNTRY! Although, right now though my favorite song is by Chamillionaire, Good Morning (Haters)- it’s oddly appropriate for this period in my life. (YouTube it)
M.P: See I never would have pegged you for a country music person! Now, you are known for your epic celeb stalking, any favorites and why?
Mrs. S: I would have to say Rochelle Davis. Mainly because when we first met her we warned her that we would stalk her and eventually grew a great friendship with her. The bushes outside her home are HUGE and really easy to hide in! Not to mention the police in her neighborhood are REALLY slow to respond to suspicious persons calls. (Mr.Chainsaw and Tex were there to witness the VIP stalking the first year)
M.P: Some of the best relationships in the world are forged from stalking (and some of the biggest legal battles)! Is there any guests that just were “unstalkable”, or you were turned off to when you got closer?
Mrs. S: There’s a particular female horror icon that I’ve always idolized (who shall remain nameless) . A few years back tried to get her attention and she gave our group the hand…she will no longer be on my stalk list….unfortunately sometimes when you get too close to the magic show it ruins the illusion.
M.P: It’s a shame when that happens. Is there anything you have for the little stalkers out there? Any tips or words of wisdom for the beginners?
Mrs. S: Most celebs can spot crazy a mile away – so I hide behind a plant or pretend to be sleeping until they get close – THEN I spring into action and leap like a panther on its prey. Also, gradually build up your tolerance for pepper spray.
M.P: You know I always see your Troubled Brand banner in your signature. I have to ask, what is Troubled Brand exactly?
Mrs. S: It’s a line of goodies that celebrate the criminal and deviant side of the human psyche – not so much about good or evil, no one truly sees them self as one or the other – even serial killers rationalize their behavior as “normal”. The site should launch by Q3 2010 which is when most folks will hear more about it.
M.P: Any chance we can get an exclusive sneak peek?
Mrs. S: I am thinking this is a possibility.
M.P: Nice! I’ll have to hold you to that. So it’s come to my attention that Troubled is presenting Rochelle Davis this year at Spooky Empire’s Ultimate Horror Weekend. How does it feel to be contributing to your favorite show?
Mrs. S: I feel truly blessed for several reasons. First and foremost that Petey is giving us the opportunity to do so. Secondly, that Rochelle agreed to represent our unique brand of stuff. And lastly that the Wyndham is dropping all charges on Mr. Stray and lifting the trespassing warrant – it’s hot in Florida and disguises just to get in make it a lot worse on him.
M.P: That’s awesome! I’m sure it will be a great experience for everyone! (Especially now that Stray doesn’t need the giant furrie outfit!) Before we end, I just wondered if you would mind doing a few word associations?
Mrs. S: Sure!
M.P: Alright! Here we go:
M.P: Celebrity = Mrs. S: Security
M.P: Monkey = Mrs. S: Costume
M.P: Midget = Mrs. S: Distraction
M.P: Crow = Mrs. S: Face paint
M.P: Horror = Mrs. S: Expression
M.P: Psychotik = Mrs.S: Diagnosis
M.P: This has been a very nice experience, and I want to thank you for your time. Real quick before you go, is there anything you would like to add?
Mrs.S: Don’t forget to drink your Ovaltine.
M.P: Ha Ha Ha! Alright and who’s your one favorite spot for madness on the web?
Mrs. S: The only thing that comes to mind would be Encyclopedia Psychotika..is there any other spot for madness on the web?
There you have it folks! The very first From Dusk Till Con Dusker of the Month! I hope everyone enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed interviewing. Keep a look out for Troubled Brand in late 2010! I’m sure there are amazing things to come from that venture.
Until Next Month,
