Paradigms 7-2-2018

TheWizardofLA2

This episode of Inspirado Projecto, “Paradigms“,  features The Wizard of L.A.! What’s more, it’s broadcasted through the KCHUNG Studios on World UFO Day! How cool is that? We first met The Wiz outside of a bar in The DTLA Arts District, hanging with Reverend Marc and Loomy The All-Seeing Eye (as evidenced HERE). They said “You must be our Jesus for the next Wizard Walk!” I said “I shall be your Jesus!” One day a promo for their Wizard Walk through Los Angeles, popped up. Although I didn’t have a white sheet/robe, I brought a cape and some masks in a backpack. The project was a perfect opportunity to podcast with them while roaming Los Angeles public transportation. These kinds of reality experiments appeared all through Union Station and the subways. Folks  would start dancing with The WOLA and I’d find a mask in my bag for them to wear. Once they donned a mask, they committed even more into the wonderful surreality. The intriguing night is heard HERE…

Shortly after, we invited him to the KCHUNG Studios, spreading good tidings to our at-home viewers . The episode of “Paradigms” appears on 7-2-2018 and is archived HERE…

Also included in this episode is another unique “Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast” episode, complete with gossip about all of your favourite deceased celebrities, a pleasurable soundscape by P.Q. Ribber and Nitroglycerine Pep Club, Fun Facts by Henry D. Horse, a tune by Douglas Clarke’s (the fella we met at the David Lynch Book Signing) band Tank Attack, a message from Surrealist David Lynch, and an old song I made, called “Great Unknown.” Would you like to see it in visual form? Since we broadcasted live on Periscope, it is saved HERE in the ARCHIVES!

Shortly after this episode “Paradigms” occurred, The WOLA announced another social experiment on Instagram, called “Sages of Sovereignty”. The idea was for folks to bring a white or black sheet, and lay on the open lawn in front of the mainstage in Grand Park  starting at 3:33pm, like they’re wrapped in body bags. It was during the yearly July 4th celebration as families and friends slowly found comfortable areas to place their blankets, while listening to the onstage dj.  One other fella besides me showed up, a fire-spinner/eater named Michaelangelo.  After we simulated death, in silence for 10 minutes under the sheets, The Wizard tapped our heads.  We popped up, resurrected and flew with our (“body bags” now transformed into) capes hanging around our necks,  through the crowd showing them our rebirth. The whole experience yielded nuggety morsels of insight and cosmic delight.  Michaelangelo had some intriguing glasses, and I became “Kaleidoscopic Jesus”

My podcast of this zany episode and all of the documented synchronicities throughout the day, can be heard HERE!

The next Wizard Walk occurs July 14th, starting at 7:01pm in Union Station! Please consider showing up for it, as you will likely return as a newly formed human avatar! Although I won’t be able to physically make it, as I’ve got a Yachtley Crew show at The Canyon in Santa Clarita co-inciding that night, I’ll definitely be there in spirit!

Also, Inspirado Projecto is Nominated for the “Adam Curry Award” and “Best Arts Podcast”! If you enjoy this program, please feel free to vote for us on the Podcast Awards ballot right H E R E! They promised me they will keep your email private. Thank you for listening!
