Paradigms 7-2-2018

TheWizardofLA2

This episode of Inspirado Projecto, “Paradigms“,  features The Wizard of L.A.! What’s more, it’s broadcasted through the KCHUNG Studios on World UFO Day! How cool is that? We first met The Wiz outside of a bar in The DTLA Arts District, hanging with Reverend Marc and Loomy The All-Seeing Eye (as evidenced HERE). They said “You must be our Jesus for the next Wizard Walk!” I said “I shall be your Jesus!” One day a promo for their Wizard Walk through Los Angeles, popped up. Although I didn’t have a white sheet/robe, I brought a cape and some masks in a backpack. The project was a perfect opportunity to podcast with them while roaming Los Angeles public transportation. These kinds of reality experiments appeared all through Union Station and the subways. Folks  would start dancing with The WOLA and I’d find a mask in my bag for them to wear. Once they donned a mask, they committed even more into the wonderful surreality. The intriguing night is heard HERE…

Shortly after, we invited him to the KCHUNG Studios, spreading good tidings to our at-home viewers . The episode of “Paradigms” appears on 7-2-2018 and is archived HERE…

Also included in this episode is another unique “Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast” episode, complete with gossip about all of your favourite deceased celebrities, a pleasurable soundscape by P.Q. Ribber and Nitroglycerine Pep Club, Fun Facts by Henry D. Horse, a tune by Douglas Clarke’s (the fella we met at the David Lynch Book Signing) band Tank Attack, a message from Surrealist David Lynch, and an old song I made, called “Great Unknown.” Would you like to see it in visual form? Since we broadcasted live on Periscope, it is saved HERE in the ARCHIVES!

Shortly after this episode “Paradigms” occurred, The WOLA announced another social experiment on Instagram, called “Sages of Sovereignty”. The idea was for folks to bring a white or black sheet, and lay on the open lawn in front of the mainstage in Grand Park  starting at 3:33pm, like they’re wrapped in body bags. It was during the yearly July 4th celebration as families and friends slowly found comfortable areas to place their blankets, while listening to the onstage dj.  One other fella besides me showed up, a fire-spinner/eater named Michaelangelo.  After we simulated death, in silence for 10 minutes under the sheets, The Wizard tapped our heads.  We popped up, resurrected and flew with our (“body bags” now transformed into) capes hanging around our necks,  through the crowd showing them our rebirth. The whole experience yielded nuggety morsels of insight and cosmic delight.  Michaelangelo had some intriguing glasses, and I became “Kaleidoscopic Jesus”

My podcast of this zany episode and all of the documented synchronicities throughout the day, can be heard HERE!

The next Wizard Walk occurs July 14th, starting at 7:01pm in Union Station! Please consider showing up for it, as you will likely return as a newly formed human avatar! Although I won’t be able to physically make it, as I’ve got a Yachtley Crew show at The Canyon in Santa Clarita co-inciding that night, I’ll definitely be there in spirit!

Also, Inspirado Projecto is Nominated for the “Adam Curry Award” and “Best Arts Podcast”! If you enjoy this program, please feel free to vote for us on the Podcast Awards ballot right H E R E! They promised me they will keep your email private. Thank you for listening!

They’ve re-visited KCHUNG Studio and contributed their talents to Inspirado Projecto on many occasions. In fact, they kicked off the Inaugural Episode!

In the KCHUNG 1630am Radio Studio, we welcome Mike Schlie and Brian D’vil, a unique combination of creators indeed.

He was led down a rabbithole in finding alternative methods to eliminate our top diseases and ailments with natural cures.

Brian and I met when I attended one of his Legendary Eclectic Egress Fests a few years ago. He wears many disguises, some of which are: DJ, Event Organizer, Sound Designer, Music Video Maker, Noise Musician, Album Designer, and Professor of Los Angeles Art Happenings. His upcoming event at SunSpace, Noisy Industries, is sure to knock your socks off, 6-2-2018!

This episode, “Noise Nutrition”, we present some Fun Facts by Henry D. Horse, played a very very rare Oingo Boingo song, presented a Brian D’vil classic, talked about Yachtley Crew news, spun one of Mike’s unique requests by B52’s, and… invented a brand new music genre which will soon sweep the nation!

Kaufman Carnival 12-4-2017

On this episode of Inspirado Projecto, CEC interviews fellow Kaufmaniacs, @Ken4Strings and @GuyLatham about the recent phenomenon known as Kaufman Carnival sprouting up on Twitter and Periscope via a dozen or so circus-themed characters.  Its a mystery as to whether Stephen Maddox is behind these multiple personas, if he’s recruited some of his old pals from Puzzlementary Productions to help out, or if Andy Kaufman is controlling the switches with Maddox under his employment.

We also play the latest Celebrity Afterlife Report by everyone’s favourite Celebrity Medium, reveal a couple of intriguing Fun Facts by our resident detective Henry D. Horse, featured melodious wonderments by both Guy and Ken, and unveil a series of synchronicities that I encountered at a Yachtley Crew show. We also pulled out an old classic by The Amboy Dukes,  a very unique song by Orion/Elvis, and recount a very spiritual moment in time with an Apache Native in a bar. Inspirado Projecto frequently makes friends with folks on the subway trains, buses, and through various social networks. Sometimes we get a surprise in our emailbox: inspiradoprojecto@gmail.com. It could be spoken word, music, a sound collage, anything that is audio. This time, it was from an EDM artist named Akira The Don, and another fun jam band called The Merry Jaynz. We happily played their music on this broadcast as well, and look forward to playing more from other folks in the future!

This entire show was Skyped from the 1630am KCHUNG Radio whilst I was simultaneously broadcasting through Periscope. Unfortunately, I Station Manage this episode and forget to actually record the adio! However, the good news is, the full length PERISCOPE VIDEO ARCHIVE IS HERE! Another fun perspective is through this quick Instagram video footage.

10-2-2017 Episode: KAABOO

KAABOO-IP
{Mirror photo by Dori. Colourized/texted by CEC.}

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.)
