HelloooooOOOOOooooo! This episode is powerpacked with lots of intriguing giblets and vittles!

My little niece Ella and my Brother Josh, contribute some fantastic found poetry.  Two various sound experiments by Nitroglycerin Pep Club (PQ Ribber‘s side project), a couple Fun Facts by Henry D. Horse, mysterious spoken word by Samantha Light, plant music called “Sounds From The Soil“, a cosmic song by Broods, a conversation with my Grandma, body-rockin percussion from Bobbie Deerfield, an adrenaline-filled song by Beelzebullies, new insight from The Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast, a laid-back folk piece by Skychief, a philosophical selection by Little Lynnie Legend (Lynne Margulies), a song written by Lawrence August, and other surprises are all presented in crispy stereophonics!

This episode is dedicated to my Grandma Gladys Clendenin, who passed away last weekend. Her voice is featured at the beginning and ending of each Inspirado Projecto episode. Thank you Grandma, for your inspiration and encouragement through the years/forever.

“Peakers” Episode 5/29/2017

PEAKERS

On this very special episode of Inspirado Projecto we are joined in the KCHUNG 1630am Studio with: Christine Moore (actress of “Glenda”, a film about Lucy Moran’s Daughter) and frequent contributor Jeff Finn (Documystery Director of “Strange Septembers” and “Before The End”), to discuss the magic of David Lynch, his projects, sightings of him, Twin Peaks Season 3, and how it all affects the mass consciousness.

Before we dive into some of the giblets about the astounding Mundee Pro-gruhm, a very Lynchian moment found us in the morning on US101, whilst Jeff and I were scootin’ along to breakfast. We witnessed the actual World Famous Oscar Meyer Wiener Mobile as a real-life entity! One of my childhood friends used to have the Matchbox Car-sized version, so this was crazy to see it as its true size!  This is the EVIDENCE!

The Inspirado Projecto gang had the pleasure of broadcasting some of its wavicles LIVE through Periscope, before a happy accident occurred. If you’d like to see a motion picture archive of how the show unfolded, complete with facial expressions and other such nonsensicles of human behaviour, the future awaits you RIGHT HERE!

Audio from “The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer” is played, cosmic wisdom from The Log Lady is introduced, the upcoming Yachtley Crew show at The Viper Room is discussed, songs by Jimmy Scott and Thought Gang from “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” soundtrack are featured, an “Eraserhead” song is played, astonishing stories about encounters with Lynch are divulged, selections from “Twin Peaks: An Access Guide To The Town,” “My Life, My Tapes” and “The Secret History of Twin Peaks” are read, Jeff and Christine give some great personal stories, and lots more intriguing unexpectancies happen! This playlist contains most of what emerged on the air during the Lynchian Geekfest…

As if the day couldn’t get any Lynchier, after the show, Jeff pulled something amazing from his bag and gave it to me. TWIN PEAKS action figures!?!?!? How phenomenal is that?

Episode: “Kaufmania” 5-15-2017

KaufmaniaIP

Inspirado Projecto produced a trifecta of Andy Kaufman-related whoppers leading up to May 16th, the Anniversary of when many believe the song-and-dance man of social sciences, faked his death in 1984.

Beginning circa 2003, a group of curious game-players, entered into a “Puzzlementary” of Andy Kaufman. Interactive videos, websites, forums, blogs, Twitter accounts, etc, provided clues about Andy Kaufman faking his death. Some participants received cryptic emails or instructions on making specific videos to be featured in an “Andy Kaufman Reality Project”. There were Twitter contests and email addresses, where questions could be sent to (enrique@andykaufmanlives.com was one) and they’d be answered on AndyKaufmanLives.com. On May 8th, an article called: “Andy Kaufman’s Fake Death Archive Are Alive” was published.  It contains a portion of the vast bibliography collected through the years (the other portion of the vast bibliography is found within a link in the article). These are the books mentioned on the episode written about Andy Kaufman. We mention a quote by reality hacker Bob Pagani, who introduced Kaufman to media hoaxer Alan Abel (who successfully faked his own death in the NY Times over a weekend).

KaufmanIP

Then, on May 15th, Inspirado Projecto dedicated an hour and a half of radio programming on KCHUNG 1630AM in Chinatown LA, to Andy Kaufman songs and obscure bits of his, rarely highlighted. Station Manager Extraordinaire, Nicholas asked questions from the perspective of someone who is brand new to the Andy Kaufman Circus. A bunch of old memories and stories were shaken loose. The audio of this broadcast can be FOUND HERE! The ocular version of the “Kaufmania” episode was recorded while it streamed LIVE on Periscope, and can be VIEWED HERE!

Nicholas!

The Youtube playlist of every single Andy Kaufman/Tony Clifton performance featured on Inspirado Projecto’s KCHUNG radio episode, is connected here in case you’d like to take a gander (a Funfact by Henry D. Horse is also played during this episode)…

On May 16th, THE DATE of Andy Kaufman’s supposed death, Inspirado Projecto hosted a Google Hangout called: “Andy Kaufman Fake Death Afterlife Bonanza“. It began at 12:30pm and went to about 4pm PST. There were 9 various people in there at any time, spanning the entire “Andy Kaufman Faked His Death” timeline! Folks who participated with AndyKaufmanLives.com forums/message boards/etc since 2003, folks who got interested around 2007, and others who just recently found out about this fractal. It was packed with Kaufmaniacs/Puzzlementarians/Kaufmanites/etc galore: Amira Ball, Kenneth Lear, John Krauser, John Lundberg from documentary “Kaufman Lives“, Frank Nora, Max Dillinger, Brandon General, Guy Latham, Dori, John Carlos Pepe, PQ Ribber, Lucy Lawson and others. The idea was to broadcast it LIVE through Youtube while simultaneously archiving it for future reference. However, it was not recorded ocularly. Frank hopped on while he was recording his Overnightscape podcast, and was able to archive about an hour of AUDIO FOUND HERE! 

Bonanza

The good news is, we all were able to compare our stories and became more familiar with one another. It was a blast to compare stories and talk about the mysterious journey! If you have any specific information on how to easily host a Google Hangout event and simultaneously broadcast it LIVE/record it on Youtube for future reference, please email your answers to: inspiradoprojecto (at) geemayl .

Tankuveddy much for your curiousity and entertainment!

 

 

Inspirado Projecto On Instagram!

Its been a blast making immediate videos as soon as ideas pop up. Utilizing a combination of the video apps “FaceSwapLive”, “Video Filters”, “Video Color”, and iMovie, I’ve been having fun seeing how to stretch their capabilities within the time limit of 1 minute on Instagram. This has become a whole new medium for me to work with. Here’s my brief review of “Thimbleweed Park”, before I noticed a special feature on Instagram enabling me to post full-sized widescreen vids. Oh! also, if there are fun apps you’ve been experimenting with, please provide them in the comments section.

(do you recognize two of these characters?)

PS

If you love point-and-click adventure games like “Maniac Mansion,” Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders,” “Monkey Island,” Loom,” “Indiana Jones,” etc, please grant your curious imagination a huge favour (and  the gift of an amazing education) by exploring “Thimbleweed Park,” the newest pixel-puzzle by the Masterminds behind these aforementioned games!

Its available in all kinds of formats for $19.99!!!

Also, if you’re a school superintendent, please consider layering Thimbleweed Park into the curriculum. It teaches cooperation, collaboration, putting puzzles together, brilliant adventures, and pleasantness in embracing the unexpected Great Unknowns of seemingly impossible possibilities. These are all fantastic traits in helping students get along with eachother better, finding the fascinating within the seemingly mundane, rise to challenges, treat obstacles playfully, and inspire the invention of extraordinary concoctions!

“Holographic Archive” 2-6-2017

ha

On the way to KCHUNG Studios today, I received a text message from Nicholas, Station Manager Extraordinaire, saying today’s Inspirado Projecto had to be called off. The door to the building was locked. He had been there for 90 minutes already, knocking and calling the landlord, with no answer. A few days ago, I invited Casey Driver from A.V. Media (the kinda fella who interviewed Alec Smart and I after FAR Bazaar) to check out KCHUNG Studios during our live broadcast. I texted to let him know we had to call off the broadcast and he suggested we meet and talk anyway, as he was already on the freeway. It was a wonderful opportunity to find out about his projects and tell him about the show. We picked the NoHo Diner and recorded our conversation as a podcast of sorts.

The ‘Zine Movement, microbroadcasting, drive-in/up movies, pop-up stores, artist communities, the Youniverse, synchronicities, virtual reality and much more is discussed in this version of Inspirado Projecto!

“Morph” 10/3/2016

Today our episode of Inspirado Projecto on KCHUNG1630AM, titled “Morph”, is coagulated around the mythical song and dance genius,  Andy Kaufman. The idea was to interview Jack Bristow through Skype and ask him how he discovered the rabbithole known as   AndyKaufmanLives.com    (operated by “Puzzlementary Productions” employees, players and investigators: Huey Williams, Claire Chanel aka ‘Photo Claire’, Enrique Presley, Julie Hastin-Ponciff, Craig, KING, Enrique Pellegrini,  Steve Rocco, Mr. E, Casper, Santa Christ, Aron Knarf, Father Creator, @TheAndyKaufman, @TonyClifton, Nathan McCoy, Glen Hardy, @AndyCoughman, Lynn, Sam Maddox and the ever elusive… Dianne), which led to his interview on a tv news station,  Huffington Post,  and the documentary about Andy Kaufman faking his death,  “Kaufman Lives.”.

Through various surprising synchronistic cosmicstances, performance artist extraordinaire of inanimate objects, Alexandra Tatarsky surprise-visited us in the KCHUNG Studios, along with writer/director/masterly improvisonator, Lindsay Stidham.

We played the last KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival commercial before its inaugural opening, October 6th-9th at the Dos Lagos Luxury Theatres in Corona, CA. KaPow IFF is partnered with Kevin Smith’s Charity, The Wayne Foundation..

The festival will also feature a 21 and older (2 drink minimum) show with RIO – The Ultimate Tribute to Duran Duran, playing in front of Stone Church Brewing, October 7th at 9:00pm. A fun Cosplay Contest happens on October 9th at 12:30pm. All 4 DAY SPECIAL: Attendees arriving to the box office at KaPowIFF dressed in costume and purchase 1 ticket for a block of films, you get to watch a 2nd block of films, FREE!

Unfortunately, the Management of Inspirado Projecto forgot to take in-studio pictures with Lindsay, Alexandra and our Captain of the KCHUNG Spaceship, Nicholas. Former Management for Inspirado Projecto has been relocated and replaced with competent NEW Management. Next update there will also be videos to peruse.

The good news is, the Former Management was able to snap some photos of Alexandra and CEC outside of the KCHUNG 1630AM Studios.
