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!

20476471_10213335407330560_4233205655509824379_nAnother gent Skyping in,  is Standup Comedian (and longtime improv-collaborator since High School), Jason McNeil, from the Chicagoland area. 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!

These are some screenshots of familiar locations/characters from the extraordinary world of “The Archivist”.  Also included is a photo of when Jason and I appeared in our first play together in High School, “Golden Boy”. The pics of the bald character in front of the door/purple backgrounds, is “The Guide” from Orly’s other VR, “The Question”.

On this 3-5-2018 episode of Inspirado Projecto, we collaborated with some wonderful guests in the KCHUNG 1630am Studio! Songwriting duo Blythe Baines & Carter Soso played samples from their upcoming “Games” EP on Priority Records. Woodsman Stewart Strauss from “Twin Peaks: The Return”, talked about working with David Lynch and surprised us with one of his own songs! Everyone revealed their creation processes and what most inspires them to give birth to such artistic gifts.

Some of the interesting subjects during the show include: Plum Island, CBD, the recent news of the Pentagon’s investigations of UFOs, Tom DeLonge’s “To The Stars Academy”, Mario Lopez’s amazing Holiday party with Yachtley Crew, my recent interview with SoFilm Magazine about Andy Kaufman faking his death, the recreation of Twin Peaks’ “Roadhouse” (aka “Bang Bang Bar”) in Los Angeles, and the crazy online circus known as Kaufman Carnival!

11-20-2017 Episode: Astral

NamonCraigCEC

It was a joy to play around in Inspiradoville, with guests Namon Sherriel and Craig Spivek on Inspirado Projecto, in the KCHUNG 1630AM Studios of Chinatown, Los Angeles! Some of you may remember hearing Author/Comedian/Improvisor Extraordinaire, Craig, from some past episodes (I dare you to search for his name in the Official Inspirado Projecto WordPress Searchbar)? This is the first time we’ve interviewed Musician of Enchantment, Namon, on the show. We played audio selections from an album he’s cobbling together of dreamlike/fantasy music. It was fun to give him our thoughts and ideas that blipped our antennae, while listening to the particular songscapes. He wrote down ideas into a notebook too. Keep your ears open for a startling story about astral projection and a near-death experience!

We also had an opportunity to play some new Fun Facts by Henry D. Horse, a new Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast from everyone’s favourite Celebrity Medium, and an unexpected guest showed up later with some of his own music, named Bobbie Deerfield.

Some of you who’ve listened to the show know we’ve encountered ‘technical abnormalities’ on several instances in the past. Sometimes the sound is very quiet, sometimes it sounds like we’re blasting it, sometimes it jarbles in and out, sometimes the entire control panel melts and we have to Frankenstein it back together with aluminum foil and paper clips. Opening arms and improvising brains, we plod forth doing the best we can with what we’ve got and somehow make it work. Its all a sound experiment and a scientific study in the art of ‘artistic process unfolding and the human behaviour associated with it.’ Having said that, this episode sounds like we’re speaking through Dixie cups and strings at times, and other times, is crispy and clear.

We also missed not having the Captain of our ship here, Nicholas Phillips. This might be part of the reason why the broadcast has its unique peaks and valleys.

10-2-2017 Episode: KAABOO

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!

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.)
