Killer Bees 6-4-2018

KillerBees

This episode of Inspirado Projecto, “Killer Bees“, is Co-Hosted by Alec Smart and Sherman Sitter, from the infamous bicycle education improv troupe, “Don’t Feed The Animals“.  The first time I encountered Alec and Sherman, they were performing variety shows on Venice Beach, along with a series of animals, robots, and other creatures. One minute, a rapper named PRISM rhymed about corporations, the next minute, Sherman educated us on how to recycle our trash bin on a Windows PC. They’ve re-visited KCHUNG Studio and contributed their talents to Inspirado Projecto on many occasions. In fact, they kicked off the Inaugural Episode!

AlecandSherman

Alec and Sherman The LCD Squirrel, interview Steve Brock, about his upcoming solo stageshow performance at the Los Angeles Fringe Festival, “My Calico Soul“. You can learn more about him and his other projects on his WEBSITE.

Some Queen songs were played, “That’s That” segments introduced, robot radio dramas ensued, lots of unexpected improvisation evolved, and Stoney Shores from Yachtley Crew dropped by for a quick interview about tonight’s show at The Viper Room on Sunset Strip at 11pm!

In addition to playing on KCHUNG 1630am Radiodials in Chinatown Los Angeles, Inspirado Projecto streamed visually on Periscope, which can be watched HERE!

HCB

On this 3-5-2018 episode of Inspirado Projecto, we collaborated with some wonderful guests in the KCHUNG 1630am Studio! Songwriting duo Blythe Baines & Carter Soso played samples from their upcoming “Games” EP on Priority Records. Woodsman Stewart Strauss from “Twin Peaks: The Return”, talked about working with David Lynch and surprised us with one of his own songs! Everyone revealed their creation processes and what most inspires them to give birth to such artistic gifts.

YouAreEnough

Its been awhile since “Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast” was played on Inspirado Projecto, so get ready for it at the top of the hour! Henry D. Horse blessed us with another “Fun Fact”, a Queen song snuck its way onto the air, and lots of talk about synchronicities were revealed!

The Woodsmen – 2/5/2018

WoodsmenStairwell

It was a pleasure to engage in such a wonderful conversation with two of “The Woodsmen” from Twin Peaks: The Return, on Inspirado Projecto, Robert Broski and Christian Calloway! Rob plays The Woodsman who delivered the iconic line “Gotta Light”:

BroskiWoodsman

Christian plays The Woodsman who entered a car and exploded a poor man’s brain matter:

CallowayWoodsman

Stewart Strauss, the very first Woodsman ever seen on Twin Peaks: The Return, was unable to join us in person, however, he was definitely with us in spirit, as they both had wonderful stories to share about him:

StraussWoodsman

Jeff Finn, documentary filmmaker of “Strange Septembers” and “Before The End” and fellow PEAKer, also joined us in the KCHUNG Studio to geek out with these crazy cats about their experiences working with David Lynch.

Music from the soundtrack of Twin Peaks: The Return, an original song by Christian Calloway, some news reporting by Stewart,  and “Fun Facts” from Henry D. Horse, were also played. Since we geeked out so much, unfortunately the latest Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast was not played on this show. We talked about Rob’s background as an Abraham Lincoln impersonator, in addition to Christian’s charity. We also discovered that Christian knew Stewart long before they were both cast as The Woodsmen for Twin Peaks: The Return! Rob was a sport and let me place my Grandpa’s old hat on his head to re-create that amazing scene in Twin Peaks: The Return where he crushed the radio dj’s skull with his bare hands!

The whole shebang was broadcasted LIVE on Periscope which can be seen HERE.

The audio archive is saved on the KCHUNG website for listening pleasure HERE!

Thank you to David Lynch for inventing Twin Peaks and to Jeff, Rob and Christian for coming into the studios to share their wonderful stories!

Spreading Darkness 1-15-2018

CurtandJosh

Josh Eisenstadt, writer/director and collaborator with the Twin Peaks Festival, joined us in the KCHUNG Studios for another exciting episode of Inspirado Projecto. He offered some intriguing theories about Twin Peaks Season 3, we played some wonderful songs off of the Official Soundtrack, geeked out about the recent flurry of Twin Peaks-inspired pop-up venues (including “One-eyed-Jacks” where we met on NYE), and talked about his film “Spreading Darkness”.

We streamed live on Periscope, in case you’d like to view the broadcast HERE!

Some very fun Henry D. Horse “Fun Facts” were played, however we didn’t have time for the “Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast”, as we were too deep into our geek mode. Have no fear, CARP shall be back again soon!

Also, if you’d like to hear the KCHUNG Archive, you can listen HERE!

We are certain to have Josh back in the studio, so tune back in for more hijinx!

11-20-2017 Episode: Astral

NamonCraigCEC

It was a joy to play around in Inspiradoville, with guests Namon Sherriel and Craig Spivek on Inspirado Projecto, in the KCHUNG 1630AM Studios of Chinatown, Los Angeles! Some of you may remember hearing Author/Comedian/Improvisor Extraordinaire, Craig, from some past episodes (I dare you to search for his name in the Official Inspirado Projecto WordPress Searchbar)? This is the first time we’ve interviewed Musician of Enchantment, Namon, on the show. We played audio selections from an album he’s cobbling together of dreamlike/fantasy music. It was fun to give him our thoughts and ideas that blipped our antennae, while listening to the particular songscapes. He wrote down ideas into a notebook too. Keep your ears open for a startling story about astral projection and a near-death experience!

We also had an opportunity to play some new Fun Facts by Henry D. Horse, a new Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast from everyone’s favourite Celebrity Medium, and an unexpected guest showed up later with some of his own music, named Bobbie Deerfield.

Some of you who’ve listened to the show know we’ve encountered ‘technical abnormalities’ on several instances in the past. Sometimes the sound is very quiet, sometimes it sounds like we’re blasting it, sometimes it jarbles in and out, sometimes the entire control panel melts and we have to Frankenstein it back together with aluminum foil and paper clips. Opening arms and improvising brains, we plod forth doing the best we can with what we’ve got and somehow make it work. Its all a sound experiment and a scientific study in the art of ‘artistic process unfolding and the human behaviour associated with it.’ Having said that, this episode sounds like we’re speaking through Dixie cups and strings at times, and other times, is crispy and clear.

We also missed not having the Captain of our ship here, Nicholas Phillips. This might be part of the reason why the broadcast has its unique peaks and valleys.

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.
