GL:  You are well-known for writing about sports and the WWE. Where can readers go to read what you’ve written about these?

 

SN:  Yes, I’ve been a fan of both since I was a kid in the early ’80s. I’m a HUGE fan of the Yankees, Cowboys, Capitals & Notre Dame Football. I practically watch every game. I guess that’s why I’m still single! LOL!. A couple of years ago I decided to turn my passion into a book. In 2006 I started a book about my favorite moments in Dallas Cowboys’ history. In 2010 that first manuscript was made into a CD. I titled the audiobook, “MY 101 Reasons to LOVE the Dallas Cowboys & 10 Reasons to DESPISE the Philadelphia Eagles & Their Fans!”. The CD is available on most major websites that sell audiobooks. Here is the link to one of them ,www.cdbaby.com/cd/stevenagy .

 

In terms of the WWE, I have written a book about my favorite moments, however this one has not been published yet. What was really cool about it though, was that I was able to get some LIVE interviews from “old school” WWE HOF that I first watched and admired as a kid. Hopefully the public will get a chance to read it sooner than later.

 

GL:  I love your humorous tweets and I also enjoy the talent you feature at your ‘FANS OF “The MAD Hungarian”‘ Facebook group. Where can readers go to connect with you? (social networking sites, etc.)  

 

SN:  I guess my favorite one would be twitter, @nagysnest. Please follow, as I do have a lot of celebrities that follow me. Therefore the conversations are ALWAYS interesting! I’m also on a website called, STAGE 32. It’s a great place to meet people in the entertainment industry from all over the WORLD!  http://www.stage32.com/profile/72162/stephen-nagy . By the way, I will eventually respond, so please check out the sites and let’s rap.    

 

GL:  As a lyricist, too, I’m always fascinated with what kind of music those I interview listen to. From following your Twitter posts, I’ve gleaned that you like hip-hop and country music. Who are some of your favorite singers/bands?

 

SN:  Oh yes, especially being originally from NJ, hip-hop is a must! My favorite rapper of ALL-TIME, who I believe is considered the best, is “The Notorious B.I.G”. He represented East Coast and is someone who I would put in my top 10 influencers in my life. In terms of country, there was always country music being played in my house growing up. Mostly “The Outlaws” : (George Jones, Hank Williams JR. & SR., Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, etc.). Even though they are before my time, “The Beatles” are my favorite group of ALL-TIME. Which would lead me to my favorite solo artist, John Lennon. I could write pages on how he has inspired my life. I wish I had an opportunity to meet him. Today it’s kind of cool that his wife, Yoko Ono, follows me on twitter. That is an honor. My favorite song is, “Imagine”.  

 

GL:  I love “Imagine,” too. Great melody and lyrics! Switching gears, I enjoyed your serenade of Christy Bella Joiner at:  http://youtu.be/E106i7paF0A

How did that come about?

 

SN:  In Jan. 2012 we had worked on a cancer awareness article together. Here was our article: http://rfsportsradio.blogspot.com/2012/09/christy-bella-joiner-joins-author-steve.html

 

 

GL:  What’s in the pipeline for the rest of 2014?  

 

SN:  Well currently I’m working with award-winning filmmaker Cassidy McMillan in helping her to promo her documentary film, “Bullies And Friends”. Here is an interview that we were a part of on 12/14/13: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/vallanomedia/2013/12/14/collaboration-with-a-cause . I’m also looking to be part of a movie, as I have recently meet some directors in person & via twitter that feel I would cast well as a cop in a horror film. I agree with them. I’m also exploring my comedic side as I’ve always loved to tell jokes and entertain people. I have a couple of original jokes that I have been tweeting to known legends in the comedy world. As a matter of fact I have the honor of being followed on twitter by Dana Carvey. This past weekend, Louie Anderson also commented on this joke that I sent him,   “Asked my friend an excuse to give AA sponsor for missing meeting. He said, tell him that I was hungover from last night!” Do you want to know what Louie said?! Then you got to follow ME, @nagysnest is the place to be! 

 

GL:  LOL! I saw that, and readers know where to go to check it out, too. Cheers!
