About Me & FAQ
Mark R. Hasan is a freelance movie and film music writer, and a regular contributor to Rue Morgue magazine.
Mark, however, believes that referring to himself in the third person is rather weird, so he will now switch to the single person perspective, otherwise known as “I.”
After graduatting from York University’s Film Program, I chose to concentrate on writing, and contributed from 1991 to 2008 film music reviews, interviews, composer and producer profiles to Music from the Movies, Britain’s most widely read film music journal, including the publication’s website (http://www.musicfromthemovies.com/).
From 1991 to 1999, I also operated a small video company under the friendly moniker of Bedlam Productions, specializing in video duplications and international conversions, as well as the archival videotaping of dance performances, and the occasional corporate video.
In 2001, I joined the writing staff at Told You So Productions, and wrote over 500 DVD reviews, plus a few DVD producer interviews. After the site closed in 2005, I established the media website KQEK.com, which incorporates the Told You So archive, plus Blu-ray, DVD, film, soundtrack, and book reviews, and diverse interviews.
In 2007, I joined Rue Morgue magazine, where I contribute articles, soundtrack and DVD reviews. I am on record as the only staff member to have passed out while watching Takashi Miike’s banned episode of Masters of Horror, “Imprint,” and waking up wearing a large slice of pepperoni pizza on my face. (One day this will surely happen to you, too.)
Additional works have also appeared in Lucid Forge magazine, Canadian Screenwriter, the Toronto Star, and Outre magazine. If you click on the tabs at the page’s very top (look up… way up), you’ll be able to access my selective archive of interviews, profiles, and reviews.
Although www.mondomark.com was meant to replace an older Editor’s Blog site at www.mondomark.blogspot.com, I’ve decided to publish both in tandem, since each reaches a sightly different readership, and blogs prior to August of 2009 are still archived at the Blogger site.
Because KQEK.com and its Mobile site (Kqek.com Mobile) and the Editor Blogs (Mondomark.com, Mondomark.blogspot.com) are heavily linked to the IMDB, it seems natural to add links to various Amazon pages so readers know what’s available on Blu-ray, DVD, and other mediums. Further information regarding Amazon ads, linked text, and sundry is available HERE.
To contact me or send a query, please send correspondences to “editor” “ten” “at” “kqek” “dot” “com.” Spam and unwanted nonsense will be ignored.

These things take time to write, you know.
