Aunt Nancy

Thank you to my Aunt Nancy, who always encouraged me to draw, bought me art supplies/sketchbooks for Birthdays and Christmases, took such tender care of her gardens and plants, cooked all of those handmade delicious holiday meals, laughed heartily from the belly, smiled perpetually, gave us so much joy on her backyard trampoline/in her swimming pool, threw fun parties in her basement, taught us the benefits of living in a family filled with jokes and pranks (many centered around Easter Peeps), introduced us to Buckwheat Zydeco, and exemplified unrestrained freedom through her many adventures with Uncle Tom, to Texas and beyond.

We love you Aunt Nancy and thank you for all of the memories. RIP.

On today’s Inspirado Projecto episode, “Parallax”, on KCHUNG RADIO, we welcomed my fellow Columbia College Chicago Alumn, and Mastermind of RogersOrion Management, Orion Barnes! We reminisced about being Directed in the play “Ivanov” by our Mentor and head of the Columbia Theatre Department , Sheldon Patinkin, (and how Sheldon’s teachings aided us in applying ensemble-based collaboration). We engaged intriguing conversations about: the upcoming May 21st Twin Peaks Season 3 (in conjunction with Orion’s personal story about David Lynch’s encounter with Orion’s Sister’s Woodland Creature), his upcoming projects, outstanding synchronicities, his experiences with being in Steppenwolf Theatre’s production of “Slaughterhouse Five” by Kurt Vonnegut (and then what it was like to meet Vonnegut after a performance one night).

3-20-2017 Episode-Equinox

IPEquinox

In addition to March 20th marking the first day of Spring, it also highlighted the Equinox. A day when both sides of the Hemisphere receive equal amounts of sunlight and darkness. Numerologists have said it is a great time to set your intentions for the upcoming months. So, what intentions have you set for yourself?

Before I get into it, I want to first point out a song credit and a very interesting story to go along with it, that I meant to mention on the show. Sometimes I dj at a Chuck E. Cheese kind of place. A few nights ago on St. Patrick’s Day, I met Joseph Peck, while his Son was hanging out with Mickey Mouse on the dancefloor. He told me it was the first time his Son ever saw Mickey Mouse, as they don’t have a tv at home. Instead, they have lots of music instruments. I learned he played the steel drums. It hearkened back to my first memory of learning what a steel drum was, when I saw a guy make one out of an old oil drum on an episode of Sesame Street. Joseph said “That’s Ellie Mannette! He’s my mentor! He taught me how to tune steel drums!” In addition to catching my Sesame Street reference, it was fascinating that he actually directly knew Ellie! I told Joseph about Inspirado Projecto, had him email me a link to his music and played his song “Slow Sunrise Flow” at the top of the show. Thank you Joseph!

Our guest of the show, is Craig Spivek, a local comedian. We met on the train while I was on my way to make music with my songwriting partner, Lawrence August . He talked about his book, “Comedy Will Save Us All!” It’s available on Amazon and a cross between an autobiography and self-help book. As you read the stories, you get the feeling that you grew up with Craig. He’s very personable and hilarious. Plus, he’s a big fan of synchronicities, which is always a wonderful revelation to learn about someone.

We also played Funfacts by Henry D. Horse, presented the new KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival promo, talked about the upcoming Yachtley Crew shows on April 14th at StillWater Spirits & Sounds and April 15th at Bombay Bar & Grill, featured an advert by our official sponsor MEAT Clown Industries, had the honour of spilling the latest dead celebrity news from the Celebrity Afterlife Report, and unearthed a great ol’ Max Headroom song!

Oh! We also broadcasted LIVE from the KCHUNG Studio, through Periscope! The first time we ever broadcasted LIVE through Periscope, was during our FAR Bazaar episode.

“Synchronicity” 12-12-2016

The charm and excitement of broadcasting live on KCHUNG Radio‘s pirate/underground/secret basement location cogged within LA Chinatown’s Eardrum Chakra, is the unexpected occurrences arriving at any moment.  The train of thought is moving and suddenly sub-atomics blink and a gusty howl rampages through the drywall. These cosmic bits are what David Lynch calls, “Happy Accidents.” Its precisely what happened on Inspirado Projecto’s episode “Synchronicity”,  with guest Ciara Berlin.

ciarasynchonicity

We played a commercial for The Human System, a BREAKING NEWSFLASH from Fall Creek Valley‘s 101.6, an intriguing song by Grimes,  Fun Facts from Henry D. Horse, a fun one by the Fuckarias, something by Dandy Warhols, hilarious gossip from The Celebrity Afterlife Report, found poetry by a wedding officiant talking about improvisation mixed with a song by Diego Stocco, and a song from Westworld. The magic of the Youniverse and ALL THAT IS, was heartily discussed on the episode as well. Due to this cosmic soup, the KCHUNG studio equipment had a tricky time capturing these nuances and broadstrokes.

The great news is, while diving antennafirst, into this unique sound collage of distinguish-ably particular blips and bleeps, it experiments with testing your patience, as well as exploring a brand new cluster of spacial eardrum placement peculiarities!

Listen to Synchronicity HERE!

Stay tuned to future episodes, as Ciara will return to surf the airwaves again sooner than later .
