GandG

HelloooooOOOOOooooo! This episode is powerpacked with lots of intriguing giblets and vittles!

A great speech by Dr. Amp from the new Twin Peaks Season 3, is played at the top of the broadcast. My little niece Ella and my Brother Josh, contribute some fantastic found poetry.  Two various sound experiments by Nitroglycerin Pep Club (PQ Ribber‘s side project), a couple Fun Facts by Henry D. Horse, mysterious spoken word by Samantha Light, plant music called “Sounds From The Soil“, a cosmic song by Broods, a conversation with my Grandma, body-rockin percussion from Bobbie Deerfield, an adrenaline-filled song by Beelzebullies, new insight from The Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast, a laid-back folk piece by Skychief, a philosophical selection by Little Lynnie Legend (Lynne Margulies), a song written by Lawrence August, and other surprises are all presented in crispy stereophonics!

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.

“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?

“Holographic Archive” 2-6-2017

ha

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!
