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!
Alec and Sherman The LCD Squirrel, interview Steve Brock, about his upcoming solo stageshow performance at the Los Angeles Fringe Festival, “My Calico Soul“. You can learn more about him and his other projects on his WEBSITE.
In addition to playing on KCHUNG 1630am Radiodials in Chinatown Los Angeles, Inspirado Projecto streamed visually on Periscope, which can be watched HERE!

It was a pleasure to engage in such a wonderful conversation with two of “The Woodsmen” from Twin Peaks: The Return, on Inspirado Projecto, Robert Broski and Christian Calloway! Rob plays The Woodsman who delivered the iconic line “Gotta Light”:
Christian plays The Woodsman who entered a car and exploded a poor man’s brain matter:
Stewart Strauss, the very first Woodsman ever seen on Twin Peaks: The Return, was unable to join us in person, however, he was definitely with us in spirit, as they both had wonderful stories to share about him:
Jeff Finn, documentary filmmaker of “Strange Septembers” and “Before The End” and fellow PEAKer, also joined us in the KCHUNG Studio to geek out with these crazy cats about their experiences working with David Lynch.
Music from the soundtrack of Twin Peaks: The Return, an original song by Christian Calloway, some news reporting by Stewart, and “Fun Facts” from Henry D. Horse, were also played. Since we geeked out so much, unfortunately the latest Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast was not played on this show. We talked about Rob’s background as an Abraham Lincoln impersonator, in addition to Christian’s charity. We also discovered that Christian knew Stewart long before they were both cast as The Woodsmen for Twin Peaks: The Return! Rob was a sport and let me place my Grandpa’s old hat on his head to re-create that amazing scene in Twin Peaks: The Return where he crushed the radio dj’s skull with his bare hands!
Some very fun Henry D. Horse “Fun Facts” were played, however we didn’t have time for the “Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast”, as we were too deep into our geek mode. Have no fear, CARP shall be back again soon!
Their cosmic hour spanned everything from bicycles to quantum physics! PLUS they had the ever-talented Captain Nicholas piloting the ship, some new episodes of “That’s That,” and a secret QUEEN song played!
Robert Werner, Andrew Mandapat, Jared Boghosian and Fue Naiuli Johnson from “Lisa At Large” joined them to talk about their new series and the thrill of collaborating with encouraging and pleasant teammates!
You can listen to this magnificent audio collaboration HERE!
This episode happened synchronistically with news of Tom Petty’s passing. Two weeks prior, I had just seen Petty perform for the first time ever, at the KAABOO Festival, for what could have possibly been his last live performance. He was a thrilling energy to be in the midst of. Soo many memories through the decades of hearing his songs on the radio and in music videos showed up all at once. I didn’t realize until seeing him live, just how many hits he’s created, that we’re all familiar with, so many soundtracks for so many moments in our lives. It felt great to hear mobs of music-goers spanning so many generations, all singing along to his melodies, along with my family and friends. This “KAABOO” episode shares the audio of one of Petty’s timeless classics, recorded that monumental night!
Tom Petty at KAABOO Festival 2017
There was an abundance of amazing art, comedians, arcade games, hybrid humanimal creatures, music and performance art happening in various places about KAABOO. If you took photos of some sculptures with your flash, a hidden designs appeared!
In addition to Petty, some notable musicians I got a chance to see, were Jane’s Addiction, Pete Yorn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael McDonald, Muse, Pink, Eric Burdon from The Animals, Fishbone and others (some of which are played during this episode).
In addition to broadcasting audio on Chinatown’s 1630AM KCHUNG Radio, and streaming live on their website, this 10-2 episode also simultaneously motion-pictured itself in a digital visual format through Periscope. Another intriguing synchronicity happened with this episode. I had recently come across Robert Moss, a Shaman who talks about traveling through dreams and also contacting those who have passed. I planned to play his stuff during the broadcast, long before I heard about Tom Petty. As you know, the Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast with the Celebrity Medium, is a staple of Inspirado Projecto. The information braided together quite uniquely. As you know we are always enthused to play music/spoken word that is suggested to us through Twitter, our email, on the bus, etc. We played a wonderful collaboration between A.J. and Tara, a cover of a Roy Orbison classic by Katie Shorey (phenomenal singer/songwriter and the frontwoman for Twisted Gypsy the Fleetwood Mac Tribute), an astounding experimental sound collage by one of PQ Ribber‘s many projects: Boys Nitroglycerine Pep Club, information about the upcoming Yachtley Crew show at Borderline Bar & Grill November 3rd, new Fun Facts by our Resident Trivia Expert and Traveler Henry D. Horse, and a wholesome song by the Cactus Blossoms from Twin Peaks: The Return. There are of course, many other surprises as well!
(Alec Smart/Sherman Sitter and Captain Nicholas did an outstanding job steering the KCHUNG Ship across the Galaxywaves, 9-18, in their melodic episode: “Know Your Dragons” as well as their stream-of-orchestration: “After Thoughts“. A piece of that episode is found in this episode.)

This episode is dedicated to my Grandma Gladys Clendenin, who passed away last weekend. Her voice is featured at the beginning and ending of each Inspirado Projecto episode. Thank you Grandma, for your inspiration and encouragement through the years/forever.

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 PeaksSeason 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!
This Inspirado Projecto episode, “IMPROV”, focuses on the art of improvisation acting and how it can be utilized in all kinds of situations. This show marks the largest amount of guests we’ve ever fit into the KCHUNG Studios. Phil Donlon, Orion Barnes, Darin Toonder, Craig Spivek, Kevin Foster, Alec Smart join us for this momentous occasion. Also, Debbie was there as our lone audience member, as well as Official Documenteer of the photograph above! Thank you Debbie!
At the top of the show, we played a Ray Charles medley by the MADMAN Band from Chicago, talked about stunts and the Deadpool Musical, presented a mashup with a wedding officiant and a song by Diego Stocco, shared stories about our writing process, and played a fun promo for Alec Smart’s DFTA Bike-a-Thon! We also broadcasted LIVE through Periscope (this will most likely become a habit for each episode), which can be seen HERE!
AND…should you like to hear the audio archive of our broadcast…..it can be heard HERE! Thank you for listening!
This is the first time I’ve ever truly put up a review for anything. I’ve been playing Thimbleweed Park for the past month and was allowed today to give my review on it.
