“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.

“Holographic Archive” 2-6-2017

On the way to KCHUNG Studios today, I received a text message from Nicholas, Station Manager Extraordinaire, saying today’s Inspirado Projecto had to be called off. The door to the building was locked. He had been there for 90 minutes already, knocking and calling the landlord, with no answer. A few days ago, I invited Casey Driver from A.V. Media (the kinda fella who interviewed Alec Smart and I after FAR Bazaar) to check out KCHUNG Studios during our live broadcast. I texted to let him know we had to call off the broadcast and he suggested we meet and talk anyway, as he was already on the freeway. It was a wonderful opportunity to find out about his projects and tell him about the show. We picked the NoHo Diner and recorded our conversation as a podcast of sorts.

The ‘Zine Movement, microbroadcasting, drive-in/up movies, pop-up stores, artist communities, the Youniverse, synchronicities, virtual reality and much more is discussed in this version of Inspirado Projecto!

WOWzers, this episode “Collage”,  landed exactly on 123, which as many of you know, is the beginning of the Fibonacci Sequence! Our special guest, PQ Ribber, talked about his Overnightscape radio show, other various projects he’s collaborated on, and a homemade movie he was in with Andy Kaufman! We give notice to the anniversary of when my fellow Blues Brothers Orphan Jeff Cahill left us, in addition to a cosmic story involving the time when he booked IamAnOrphan to play at On the Rox (you can view the documentary about him and all the bands he helped out on the Sunset Strip, called “The Booker”, right HERE!).

Horse, spoken word by poetess Samantha Light, a demo version of a song called “Use Me Darling” written by songwriter extraordinaire Lawrence August, a new one by Katmaz from his album “Nautical Things”, a sweet serenade by Bibi Borja and a dreamy soundscape by PQ Ribber. News about the upcoming point-and-click adventure game “Thimbleweed Park” is proclaimed (created by the same geniuses who brought us “Maniac Mansion,” and “Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders“), AND… music featured within the game, at a location called “Quickie Pal”, is revealed!

“Morph” 10/3/2016

Today our episode of Inspirado Projecto on KCHUNG1630AM, titled “Morph”, is coagulated around the mythical song and dance genius,  Andy Kaufman. The idea was to interview Jack Bristow through Skype and ask him how he discovered the rabbithole known as   AndyKaufmanLives.com    (operated by “Puzzlementary Productions” employees, players and investigators: Huey Williams, Claire Chanel aka ‘Photo Claire’, Enrique Presley, Julie Hastin-Ponciff, Craig, KING, Enrique Pellegrini,  Steve Rocco, Mr. E, Casper, Santa Christ, Aron Knarf, Father Creator, @TheAndyKaufman, @TonyClifton, Nathan McCoy, Glen Hardy, @AndyCoughman, Lynn, Sam Maddox and the ever elusive… Dianne), which led to his interview on a tv news station,  Huffington Post,  and the documentary about Andy Kaufman faking his death,  “Kaufman Lives.”.

Through various surprising synchronistic cosmicstances, performance artist extraordinaire of inanimate objects, Alexandra Tatarsky surprise-visited us in the KCHUNG Studios, along with writer/director/masterly improvisonator, Lindsay Stidham.

We played the last KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival commercial before its inaugural opening, October 6th-9th at the Dos Lagos Luxury Theatres in Corona, CA. KaPow IFF is partnered with Kevin Smith’s Charity, The Wayne Foundation..

The festival will also feature a 21 and older (2 drink minimum) show with RIO – The Ultimate Tribute to Duran Duran, playing in front of Stone Church Brewing, October 7th at 9:00pm. A fun Cosplay Contest happens on October 9th at 12:30pm. All 4 DAY SPECIAL: Attendees arriving to the box office at KaPowIFF dressed in costume and purchase 1 ticket for a block of films, you get to watch a 2nd block of films, FREE!

Day Passes and 4 Day Passes now available on the KaPowIFF site!

Unfortunately, the Management of Inspirado Projecto forgot to take in-studio pictures with Lindsay, Alexandra and our Captain of the KCHUNG Spaceship, Nicholas. Former Management for Inspirado Projecto has been relocated and replaced with competent NEW Management. Next update there will also be videos to peruse.

The good news is, the Former Management was able to snap some photos of Alexandra and CEC outside of the KCHUNG 1630AM Studios.
