Orly RodriguezOrly Rodriguez joins us via Skype from Florida, currently cobbling together a virtual reality experience based in the world  and characters of Twin Peaks, called “The Archivist.” Orly is additionally making another VR game called, “The Question” (one of the characters, “The Guide”, is voiced by yours truly), which is more cosmic-oriented and Twilight Zone-inspired.

McNeil’s performances are not limited to stages within traditional venues. He plays on all size stages such as: living rooms, basements, meeting rooms, sidewalks, and other unexpected locations. “Hilaritygram”, his door-to-door comedy business, is perfect for any kind of celebration and can be ordered all over the Chi-town regions! He also voices a couple characters for “The Archivist”. One of those, is the narrator featured in the extraordinary trailer below!

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.
