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.

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.

“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.
