-Interview Part 2-
QUESTION: Did you just say "Two seat belts?"
STEPHAN: "Yes...I certainly did."
QUESTION: That's not right. By chance did you have a passenger with you at the time? That's the only way he could have did that?
STEPHAN: "That really depends on 'WHAT' you can say is a passenger."
QUESTION: Now you've really got me confused.
STEPHAN: "You should have been there and seen the look on the Judge's face as he read, and then re-read the charges, with a really
puzzled look on his face. Anyway...the judge asked me if I had a passenger in the car that wasn't wearing a seat-belt, and I
informed him, 'YES and NO...that is if you can really call it a passenger.' I got a lot of strange looks when I said that. I
then went into a small room to speak with the CA. That got even more puzzling (on their part, that is)."
QUESTION: What happened?
STEPHAN: "The CA read the charges. I presented all the evidence (license, registration, insurance, and the video that proved that I was
in fact wearing a seatbelt...including that of me socalled passenger). The CA (that actually knows me...we went to school
together), asked about the passenger. I informed him that 'IT' was waiting out in the car if he needed to ask any questions.
Although I don't believe that 'IT' could answer any of them if asked."
QUESTION: Did you say "IT?"
STEPHAN: "I certaingly did. (laughing). 'IT' just happened to be a life-size head of actor: Glenn Starnge (as the Frankenstein monster),
that I had sculpted. I had taken it down to let a friend (from out of the area), that was at the flea-market see it. That was
quiet embarrasing to the CA (not to say a waste of his time, the Court's time, and that of me Mum's and I). That jerk didn't
even have the guts to show up either. The case was dismissed. I filed a complaint to his superiors along with a copy of the
video), never heard anything back from them, but funny thing...he suddenly disappeared after that. You know...I don't
appreciate people like that abusing this power trip they get by playing what they think is a joke of somekind and wasting
me precious time. No wonder most cops that you hear in the news always getting shot (wounded or killed), all the time.
You always hear the same old story where people ask why would someone do such a thing. Well...it's pretty obvious to me
that most of them simply ask for it. You know...'You live by the sword...you will die by the sword.' Just a fact. Most of
these jerks that cop a bully-like attitude...you know the ones. For example...they put on a uniform, add a gun, taser, hand
-cuffs and the authority to do what they please...well, that doesn't mix well with someone that's got a bad attitude and loves
going around bullying others warranted by wearing a badge. You know...without all that, they are nothing. With it? They
instantly get these huge balls of steel that makes them feel like they're somekind of god or something that cannot be
harmed. Well...I've got one thing to say about that. They're wrong. And one day, they're going to pick on the wrong person,
and that karma they don't stop to think about is going to come back and bite them in the ass. And it's going to hurt really
bad. Hey? Enough about all that. Let's get back to what this interview is all about. OK?"
QUESTION: Yes sir. You were quiet young when you discovered you were a monster kid. Uh...what was the first film you saw? Any
favourites that standout over others?
STEPHAN: "Yes. I was very, very young in fact. The first full-length feature
film that I saw was at the age of 2 and that was nonother than
"Creature from the Black Lagoon" (and me alltime favourite).
I remember it so well. Me mum and half brother were living in
Irvine, KY at the time. It was Friday night. The treats were MT.
DEW and JIFFY-POP popcorn. The TV station was WKYT-TV
27 (in Lexington, KY). It aired just after the evening news. What
made it even more special in fact that it was accompanied by a
second feature starring: Henry Hull in "Werewolf of London"
(1935). Those were the days. Everythingelse came after that. There
were more films aired on another Lexington station, WLEX-18,
that they called "Terrors in the Night." Even at that early age I
couldn't wait until Friday and Saturday night's came. Even the day
-time had spooks and ghouls haunting the airwaves. Channels like
32 and 41 (located in Louisville, KY), had enough to provide us
monster kids. And if that wasn't enough, there was a new little stat
-ion called WXIX-19 (in Cincinnati, OHIO), that brought us some
-thing very special. It was called "SCREAM-IN" (airing on Satur-
day night at 9:30 PM), and was hosted by nonother than THE
COOL GHOUL (aka: Dick Von Hoene). Back in October 2002,
WXIX-19 brought THE COOL GHOUL back for an all-night
special called "Night of the Living Ghoul." It aired on Hallowe'en
night, and luckily, I recorded it. The sad part came just a few
months after. A friend saw me, and as we spoke, he informed me
that the THE COOL GHOUL had passed away. That was a very
sad time for me. Anyway...Sunday mournings had their surprizes
as well. That's when I was glued to the TV watching "THE
GROOVIE GOOLIES" cartoon series. Hmmm...other fond mem
-ories. One of the best memories I have is the time that me mum
took me ( and a few relatives), to the local DRIVE-IN theatre that
was located in Irvine, KY. It's not there anymore. Anyway...it was
an all-night feast of "GODZILLA" flicks that ran from dusk to
dawn. Funny thing. I was 4 years old and the only one still wide
awake when it was all over. (smiling) Those were the days. Hey...
I have always been a monsterkid and will be forever. As for the artwork(s), that I am creating? Well...you can see and feel
that love in practically everything that I create. Those outthere that do not understand...well, they just don't know what
they're missing. Speaking of the "CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON," Ben Chapman Jr. (whom portrayed the
Gillman on land), was a really ghould friend of mine and I miss him very much. I used to talk to him 2-3 times a week.
Either I called him or he called me. Anyway...Ben had a lot of cool stories about old Hollywood...especially one when
Peter Lawford introduced him to Marilyn Monroe. When she foundout that Ben (was the Gillman), she reached up and
gave him a kiss on the cheek...and after that, well...Ben said that he floated around the room the rest of that evening.
(smiling) There's only one word to describe that."
QUESTION: What would that be?
STEPHAN: "P-R-I-C-E-L-E-S-S!!!" (smiling)
QUESTION: Yes, sir! Anyway...I understand that you're a huge "MUNSTERS" fan.
STEPHAN: "Oh yeahhhhhh!!! That TV series was just amazing and it had everything that a true monsterkid could ask for. In fact, me
grandfather (Gilbert Wesley McIntosh), was a little like Grandpa Munster in real life with a great sense of humour and sar
-casim. He passed away in June 1980. He never had a bad word or negative criticism toward me. When I used to stay
with me grandparents he would always sit with me when that show aired (in reruns, of course). Although he was blind
at the time, he got a ghould laugh, almost as much as I did. Hey...you forgot to mention "THE ADDAMS FAMILY."
Both of those shows rank 50/50 with me. And don't forget that they are both celebrating their 50th Anniversary's this
year in September. Oh yes...one of the best experiences of me life was when I met Al Lewis (aka: Grandpa Munster),
in May 1995 (in Los Angeles, CA). After that I kept intouch with him on and off. Then one day, a few years before he
passed away in 2006, I received a box of goodies along with a card describing the contents......"
QUESTION: Excuse me...would that be what's in that small counter-top display over there?
STEPHAN: "Yes...indeedy!!! Anyway...I couldn't believe it. The box rattled as there were some glass pieces in there. I opened it
carefully to find around 60+ pieces of dusty small bottles, clamps and etc. that just happened to be a lot of original prop
pieces that were seen throughout Grandpa's lab on the Tv series. Several souveniers that Al had taken when the series
wrapped it's final season in 1966. Those are really special to me. For those outthere that may be having any thoughts...
stop now...they are not for sale."
QUESTION: That's really cool. Any other really special collectibles in your collection? I mean...some that are quiet unique that you
could tell us about?
STEPHAN: "Hmmm...where to start? Oh yeah. Let's see...uh, a dear friend, being Forry Ackerman (aka: Uncle Forry), bestowed me
with with a few gifts over the years. For example...I have a small bottle (labeled by Forry), that originally belonged to the
great Lon Chaney Sr. (that was a part of one of his make-up cases that Forry once owned; including a small piece of
fragile make-up, also from that same case). Then there's another small bottle labeled "Jack Pierce...make-up bottle...FJA."
I also have a small piece of the actual gauze that Pierce used to wrap Boris Karloff up in "THE MUMMY" (1932). Then
there's a small collection of coins (mostly pennies), also from Forry. They are all labeled on the reverse sides with initials
of various actors, actresses, directors and etc. All of whom Forry knew. He told me that he used to ask "a penny for your
thoughts" when collecting them. There's a few more very special items that were gifted to me over the years from others
but I'll leave it at that...for now. Maybe I'll post a few pics on here soon. And last...once again, sorry, but these are also
not for sale either."
QUESTION: I see that you also have great love for the ART NOUVEAU period. Any thoughts?
STEPHAN: "Yes. You heard correctly. And let's not forget the VICTORIAN period. I love the architecture and design of that time
period, and let's also not forget the artwork, in particularly, the works of artist: Alphonse Mucha. I'm a huge fane of his
QUESTION: Are there any other artist that you admire that may have had an influence on you?
STEPHAN: "Are you kidding me? (laughing) Yes!!! Me all-time favourite artist is non-other than the one and only "BASIL
GOGOS!!!" The only others that follow are (1) James Bama, (2) H. R. Giger, (3) Frank Frazetta and (4) Maxfield Parrish."
