On this April 1st, 2021, Slasher Radio is finally ready to bring listeners the updates they’ve been asking for regarding the infamous sock collection of one host, Rob Humphrey.
Though the collection only started a few years back, it has grown at an impressive rate, now totaling 17 pair:
- Glow in the dark Michael Myers
- Friday the 13th
- The Thing
- They Live
- Wolf man
- Stay Puft Marshmallowman
- Creature from the Black Lagoon
- The Mummy
- An American Werewolf in London
- Mars Attacks
- My Bloody Valentine
He was kind enough to sit down and really explain to us the art of and drive behind the collecting of horror socks in this ground-breaking interview:
CV: What was your first pair of horror socks?
RH: I didn’t get my first pair of horror socks until just a few years ago. I was shopping with my kid for a Halloween costume and, on a whim, I picked up a 6 dollar pair of Friday the 13th socks.
CV: What’s your favorite pair?
RH: Picking a favorite pair is nearly impossible. Socks are a reflection of your mood. I do have a soft spot for the Friday the 13th socks because they were my first. The glow in the dark Michael Myers socks are cool because they glow in the dark.
CV: What are your hopes for the collection?
RH: I think that everyone will agree that socks are the most important part of any wardrobe. Obviously, I want to continue to add quality pieces to my collection but it’s equally important to take good care of the pieces I already own. If you take care of your socks, they will take care of you.
CV: Where can fans get updates about new socks?
RH: The sock market is really hot right now and people try to keep the insider info to themselves, assuring that they can get a pair for their collection. It’s not easy to find the news but it can be done if you keep your ear to the ground. Keep an eye out for my upcoming sock based podcast. I’m hoping to get it off the ground soon as part of a new network I’m launching.
Although he was not able to confirm, rumors have been circulating that the aforementioned podcast network will include several exciting shows covering bus stations, dating advice, and of course, socks.
