7-10-2017 Oceanic (Rabbits)

Two ideas for this theme are “Oceanic” and “Rabbits.” The latest unique mystery lies in the most recently-discovered ” #runtherabbit ” and ” #outofhandtv “, both of which are imperative as the functioning engine of this sound collage. Yrev very reflective images emerge in various familiar masks during this KCHUNG Radio Hour of Inspirado Projecto.

Captain Nicholas, master of Sound Engineering, joins CEC in the Audio Co-Pilot Arena. It was also simultaneously recorded LIVE for viewing possibilities on Periscope. We discuss Twin Peaks Season 3 nuggets, release a live audio delicacy of smooth yacht rock sensation “Yachtley Crew” during their first performance at The World Famous Viper Room 6-23-2017,  played a promo for the wonderful Documystery™ (term coined by Jeff Finn) “Strange Septembers,” dug up a rockin’ Sebadoh jam, released a Fun Fact by Henry D. Horse, debuted a spacey fave by Sailors of Neptune, spilled the gossip-beans by The Celebrity Afterlife Report, blasted a mashup betwixt Kurt Schwitters‘ jibberish and Moondog‘s composure “Bird’s Lament”, then introduced a wonderful tribute song by Little Wendy Polland at Andy Kaufman’s Memorial!


We also discuss a yrev very cosmic Lynchian event that occurred. Back in May (a week or so before Twin Peaks Season 3 was released) 2017, I created a fun “AstroCoop” image of Dale Cooper dressed as an Astronaut floating through the Red Room. I was thinking about how he reminded me of David Bowie’s “…ground control to Major Tom…”, with Coop out there fused between dimensions trying to find his way back to Twin Peaks, traversing the curtains like heatwaves on Mars. At that point I had no idea the new season would focus on dopplegangers…

Coopmeme

After watching each part I hop on the interwebs to see what kinds of new revelations have beamed onto Peakers’ antennae. On July 9th, immediately after watching Part 9, I opened up Twitter to see if other folks caught Easter Eggs that flew past me and/or that I might have also caught. On the Twitter feed I found a photograph that VERY YREV MUCH echoed similarities of my AstroCoop! I immediately sent it to Lawrence August and he artistically blended them together side-by-side:

BothAstroCoops

This astounding accidental ‘prophecy’ was a gift all on its own….now to be able to archive it for my Futureself to look back on, as a strong example of how a series of antennae operating on similar broadcast signals can emerge from the stream-of-consciousness with similar fish!

“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?

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.

Inspirado Projecto On Instagram!

Its been a blast making immediate videos as soon as ideas pop up. Utilizing a combination of the video apps “FaceSwapLive”, “Video Filters”, “Video Color”, and iMovie, I’ve been having fun seeing how to stretch their capabilities within the time limit of 1 minute on Instagram. This has become a whole new medium for me to work with. Here’s my brief review of “Thimbleweed Park”, before I noticed a special feature on Instagram enabling me to post full-sized widescreen vids. Oh! also, if there are fun apps you’ve been experimenting with, please provide them in the comments section.

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!

IPQuad

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.
