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.

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”:

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

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!

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!

Jeff Finn from “Before The End” calls in via Star Trek communicator and asks Jay some questions. One of which, involves Jay replaying the scene with his “Drunk” man character on “Twin Peaks: The Return”…

We play a few songs from the new “Twin Peaks: The Return” soundtracks, talk about how Jay met David Lynch and his short film “Beer Pong Girls”.

KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival, which ran November 9-15 at NoHo7 Laemmle in North Hollywood, screened “Beer Pong Girls” during a short film block on November 15th. It was an honour to see his film projected onto the Silver Screen and meet so many extraordinary filmmakers! We look forward to seeing more of his creations at KaPow IFF 2018, in addition to collaborating with him on future Inspirado Projecto episodes!

10-2-2017 Episode: KAABOO

This episode happened synchronistically with news of Tom Petty’s passing. Two weeks prior, I had just seen Petty perform for the first time ever, at the KAABOO Festival, for what could have possibly been his last live performance. He was a thrilling energy to be in the midst of. Soo many memories through the decades of hearing his songs on the radio and in music videos showed up all at once. I didn’t realize until seeing him live, just how many hits he’s created, that we’re all familiar with, so many soundtracks for so many moments in our lives. It felt great to hear mobs of music-goers spanning so many generations, all singing along to his melodies, along with my family and friends. This “KAABOO” episode shares the audio of one of Petty’s timeless classics, recorded that monumental night!

Tom Petty at KAABOO Festival 2017

There was an abundance of amazing art, comedians, arcade games, hybrid humanimal creatures, music and performance art happening in various places about KAABOO. If you took photos of some sculptures with your flash, a hidden designs appeared!

In addition to Petty, some notable musicians I got a chance to see, were Jane’s Addiction, Pete Yorn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael McDonald, Muse, Pink, Eric Burdon from The Animals, Fishbone and others (some of which are played during this episode).

In addition to broadcasting audio on Chinatown’s 1630AM KCHUNG Radio, and streaming live on their website, this 10-2 episode also simultaneously motion-pictured itself in a digital visual format through Periscope. Another intriguing synchronicity happened with this episode. I had recently come across Robert Moss, a Shaman who talks about traveling through dreams and also contacting those who have passed. I planned to play his stuff during the broadcast, long before I heard about Tom Petty.  As you know, the Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast with the Celebrity Medium, is a staple of Inspirado Projecto. The information braided together quite uniquely. As you know we are always enthused to play music/spoken word that is suggested to us through Twitter, our email, on the bus, etc. We played a wonderful collaboration between A.J. and Tara, a cover of a Roy Orbison classic by Katie Shorey (phenomenal singer/songwriter and the frontwoman for Twisted Gypsy the Fleetwood Mac Tribute), an astounding experimental sound collage by one of PQ Ribber‘s many projects: Boys Nitroglycerine Pep Club, information about the upcoming Yachtley Crew show at Borderline Bar & Grill November 3rd, new Fun Facts by our Resident Trivia Expert and Traveler Henry D. Horse, and a wholesome song by the Cactus Blossoms from Twin Peaks: The Return. There are of course, many other surprises as well!

(Alec Smart/Sherman Sitter and Captain Nicholas did an outstanding job steering the KCHUNG Ship across the Galaxywaves, 9-18, in their melodic episode: “Know Your Dragons”  as well as their stream-of-orchestration: “After Thoughts“. A piece of that episode is found in this episode.)

“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?

4-3-2017 Parallax

Parallax.JPG

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).

Orion Barnes

We heard a piece of Steve Kirk’s “Thimbleweed Park Soundtrack”, recorded directly from the game. We also have been given 3 COPIES OF “THIMBLEWEED PARK” TO GIVEAWAY.

Keep your eyes/ears peeled for clues on a scavenger hunt in answering a few questions to win a free copy! Or if you’d like, you can order the game through the “Thimbleweed Park” website for $19.99!! I did a podcast review on the game which can be heard here:

Also, here’s a fun article about Andy Kaufman and his greatest practical joke!

We heard some Fun Facts from Henry D. Horse, played a song written by Lawrence August….

….and sang/played by Jason Karr….

…..called “Bloom,” introduced Russian Jazz Sensation Lev Lazarev‘s band: Le Jazz Magazine, singing this old classic:

We presented a unique sound collage by Brett E Berman’s and Shaman Q‘s new project “Boy’s Nitroglycerine Pep Club” and displayed the new advert for the upcoming KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival, played an old King Missile classic which most likely inspired Loreena Bobbit, mentioned alternate reality games, talked about cross-over youniverses with parallel stories found with subjects such as Hamlet by Shakespeare!

KCHUNG Computer Technical difficulties prevented today’s audio episode, “Parallax” with Orion Barnes on Inspirado Projecto, from archiving. The GREAT NEWS IS we captured the FULL behind-the-scenes all VIDEO version of this show on Periscope. It has been archived HERE.

ALSO, lastly but not-to-be-dee-leest-ley…we offered a new “Celebrity Afterlife Report” featuring new juicy news gossip of what Barry/Barris and other dead celebs are doing in the afterlife! Since we weren’t able to hear it, I present the full broadcast to you now. Please like and subscribe to their mystical channel, if your guides compel you!

KCHUNG 1630AM – Friday 13th Episode!

KCHUNG 1630AM broadcasting from beautiful Chinatown, Los Angeles, invited me to play in their studio, Friday the 13th. This was the 5th time I’ve done an Inspirado Projecto radio show there, yet the first time I was by myself. Brian D’vil, Jamie-lee Wise, Alec Smart and/or Phil Donlon have been my co-hosts in previous episodes. Having others to bounce ideas off of, with the luxury of setting up the next tracks while someone else is talking, helps in creating a smooth show. It was a fun challenge to juggle songs and talk at the same time. The joy of live broadcasting allows for any number of surprises to enter into the experience. David Lynch refers to these as ‘Happy Accidents‘ and in fact, looks forward to them. Allowing for the possibility of Happy Accidents and making peace with the idea that you’ll be just fine improvising along with them as they happen, gives you the truest sense of knowing you have your own back. It also is an indicator of just how open we are to accepting new experiences and a symbol of how deft we are at creating lemon trees from lemonade.

Without furthur soliloquy, I give thee Inspirado Projecto Radio!!!

Thank you Jason Karr for this amazing giff!
