Killer Bees 6-4-2018

KillerBees

This episode of Inspirado Projecto, “Killer Bees“, is Co-Hosted by Alec Smart and Sherman Sitter, from the infamous bicycle education improv troupe, “Don’t Feed The Animals“.  The first time I encountered Alec and Sherman, they were performing variety shows on Venice Beach, along with a series of animals, robots, and other creatures. One minute, a rapper named PRISM rhymed about corporations, the next minute, Sherman educated us on how to recycle our trash bin on a Windows PC. They’ve re-visited KCHUNG Studio and contributed their talents to Inspirado Projecto on many occasions. In fact, they kicked off the Inaugural Episode!

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. You can find the Official Facebook page HERE!

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!

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!
