My home will be featured on an episode of HGTV’s “Home Strange Home” which is set to air on Halloween October 31 @ 1:00pm (CST). The segment – filmed one year ago – features a tour of my home and specifically my monster/cryptozoology memorabilia collection which includes classic monster toys, masks, posters, and artwork.
Episode 202, titled “Christmas, Jai, & Purple House.” More info:
Here’s some shots from the filming:
The show was produced by Sean Whitley, who is also the writer, director, and producer of Southern Fried Bigfoot. Sean had this to say on the production company’s blog:
While on a recent Home, Strange Home shoot in Texas, author and musician Lyle Blackburn gave the crew a tour of his gigantic collection of monster memorabilia. While he does have a specific room dedicated to things that go bump in the night, his entire house is decorated in monster style.
Lyle’s lifelong love of the spooky stuff has even expanded from movie monsters to ones that might actually exist. As a cryptozoologist – one who searches for unknown animals such as Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster – Lyle’s delved into the dark woods in search of mysterious beasts, such as the Fouke Monster of Arkansas. While the crew didn’t have any sightings of mysterious creatures on location, we did have a monstrously good shoot at Lyle’s place.
