Tim KC Canton, art director/creep, answers The Pitch‘s questionnaire


Name
: Tim KC Canton

Hometown: St. Joseph

Current neighborhood: The ’Ville (Parkville)

What I do (in 140 characters): By day, I create interactive design for Barkley. By night, I cultivate creepy things for downrightcreepy.com, Rotten Rentals and Panic Fest.

What’s your addiction? Creepy things, interactive design and sports. Weird mixture, I know.

What’s your game? Fantasy football

What’s your drink? Diet cherry limeade or diet pig’s blood (Kidding. But which one am I kidding about?)

Where’s dinner? Slap’s BBQ or Taco John’s. Olé!

Finish this sentence: “Kansas City got it right when …” They let Billy Butler steal a base.

“Kansas City screwed up when …” They let Metro North die! (Save Metro North — check it out on Facebook for a good laugh. My friends and I started it as a satirical mall page, facebook.com/savemetronorth.)

“Kansas City needs …” To continue to support Panic Film Fest at Screenland Armour.

“I always laugh at …” Bobby Moynihan.

“I’ve been known to binge-watch …” House of Cards, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.

“I can’t stop listening to …” The Hooten Hallers and William Elliott Whitmore.

“I just read …” The Blair Witch Project, a Dossier.

The best advice I ever got: Do more of what makes you happy.

Worst advice: Shoot a zombie in the leg. I think we know why.

My sidekick: My dog, Rusty

My dating triumph/tragedy: Taking a chance on a long-distance relationship with a girl living three hours away. After months of driving back and forth between Des Moines and Kansas City, we sealed the deal last year and got married.

My brush with fame: Not sure I’ve had a brush with fame, but I do get to interview a lot of famous people for the Creepcast podcast on Downright Creepy. I also have an occasional run-in with my arch nemesis Seth Green at San Diego Comic-Con. Enjoy your toys, Seth!

My 140-character soapbox: Don’t give trick-or-treaters toothpaste this Halloween. Let them enjoy their tooth rot. How else will they learn about the tooth fairy?

What was the last thing you had to apologize for? Leaving my friend Ben Lee behind in the Walking Dead Escape. He became Otis bait.

Who’s sorry now? Me, for not saving Metro North Mall [clenched fist].

My recent triumph: Launching rottenrentals.com. They are VHS cases filled with horror goodies like vintage trading cards, mini zombie figures, zombie tarot cards and more!

Downright Creepy and Screenland Armour host a double feature of The Blair Witch Project and 
Exists, plus a Q&A with director Eduardo Sánchez, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 29, $25.
