In episode 23, we talk about the eccentrics. Initially inspired by the Netflix documentary about Joan Didion, we explore what’s missing from today’s social media landscape. How we, as artists, are encouraged to not be eccentric by continually being marketed the idea that we need to find our market. Maybe we don’t need to find our market.

Aaron Trumm (NQuit Music), interviews Joyce Kettering – Musician, Composer, Instrumentalist, Entrepenur. Joyce was working as a contracts compliance auditor at a Fortune 500 company in 2016 when she decided to become a lot more serious about her music. So she started recording. A lot of recording. Now she’s doing music full time. Continue reading “TPP 22 – AT Joyce Kettering”
Episode 21 is an I Hate Art segment. It figures that our best episode is followed by our worst episode. There’s some stuff to laugh at. Kids screaming in the background. An old light that we tried to add to our production kit just about catches on fire. We never really caught a rhythm on this one, but it’s funny sometimes and it’s short.
One thing that I referred to in the end that is a good takeaway. The Wheelworkers at the Satellite Bar in Houston, TX, October 27, 2017. Last time I saw them at Fitz, they were great. A visual show with public domain movies playing on a screen behind them. Modular synths. Good songs. I bought a CD. Continue reading “TPP 21 – IHA Meanderings”
In Episode 20 of the Twisted Pop Podcast, we interview actor, writer, filmmaker, producer and director Sarita Callender, aka Jade Lesyeux. Jade was Sarita’s alias while she was in the Witness Protection Program. We have yet to interview anyone that hasn’t surprised us in some way. Even people that we’ve known for a long time have told us things that we didn’t know about them. No one caught us more off guard than Sarita Callender.
As the interview opened, I asked Sarita why she had an alias. She responded that she had been in the Witness Protection Program. We had no idea whether she wanted to pursue the details of that story in a podcast with two guys that she had met only minutes previous to the interview, but we left the door open. Continue reading “TPP 20 – Sarita (Jade) Callender”
In this episode, we talk about following someone else’s vision versus following your own versus working with a team. It’s a dense subject. We could probably spend a whole lot of time defining each of these ideas first. Continue reading “TPP 19 – IHA Whose Vision”
In this episode of the Twisted Pop Podcast, we interview Bryan King. Bryan is a writer – graphic novels, comic books, novels. I actually don’t think I have a good sense of all that Bryan does, but it’s a lot. Continue reading “TPP 18 – Bryan King”
This week’s I Hate Art segment of the Twisted Pop Podcast, we talk about the lies we tell ourselves. Maybe everyone does this, but we’re talking specifically about what we do as artists. In the 9 to 5, talking my way through my day. I am satisfied because I am doing a good job, but this isn’t a profession I chose. It’s the profession that made the most money. And frankly, most people end up in a 9 to 5 that chose them, so cry me a river. Continue reading “TPP 17 – Lies Lies Lies”
This week we have Dielle, as in Dielle Music. Dielle is a singer/songwriter based in the UK. She lives near the Isle Of Wight. Dielle is a determined and dedicated professional. She’s got content everywhere. Continue reading “TPP 16 – Dielle”
In this I Hate Art episode, we talk about – Oh I can’t be sure. We talk about Mother. About how artists can misinterpret their own art. About how you can lose control of a project. Especially when other people are involved. It’s just us shooting the shit really… Maybe this episode will make more sense later. We kind of lost control of this one.
This week we interviewed Mark Thogersen. Maybe that’s a pretty strong description of what happened. The word interview suggests that we asked him questions or at least directed the conversation. I don’t think we actually asked Mark any more than three or four questions. We just sat down and started rolling and he told us about his journey. Continue reading “TPP 14 – Mark Thogersen”
