The host of Make: television? A vampire
johnTheVapPark101408.jpg

John Edgar Park, the host of the forthcoming Make: television, used to work at White Wolf Game Studio. He posed for the painting of Greger Anderssen – Prince of Stockholm for the Vampire: The Eternal Struggle card game. I think we should convince him to do his hair, eyebrows, and facial hair like this for the show. Make: TV could be hosted by one of those bumbling ghouls in overwrought make-up who used to host late-night TV creature features in the ’60s and ’70s.

  1. Very Cool! I played VTES back in college when it was still called Jyhad. I never thought that game would be a retro reference anyone would know!
    Watch out for Ozmo!

    Thanks for rooting out the typo. Fixed.

    I know. I got this great image of you in that VTES get-up, doing a Halloween ep, in homage to those late-night horror hosts. In Richmond, VA, we had this Grampa Munster wannabe called The Bowmen Body (I think the show was sponsored by Bowmen Chevrolet or something). He was awful, and frequently wrecked to his widow’s peak. As, of course, was most of the audience at that time (of both day and decade). Probably every TV market had one of these goofball characters.

    And since Halloween seems to be the (so far) unofficial maker’s holiday, seems only fitting to do a Halloween show.
