THIS WEEK, MONSTARK AND ME DISCUSS THE TRAGIC PASSING OF MF DOOM, THE NEW BREED OF CELEBRITIES AND "CONTENT CREATORS," WHY INSPIRATION COMES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, GROWING UP IN THE ERA BEFORE MOBILE PHONES, CREATING SPACE FOR CREATIVITY, FRANCIS E DEC, AND DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS! THIS EPISODE WAS LIVE-STREAMED ON TWITCH.TV/ANTIFASCISTSOCIALCLUB - PLEASE FOLLOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CATCH US LIVE IN THE FUTURE! (THIS PODCAST DESCRIPTION WAS WRITTEN IN "ALL CAPS" IN LOVING TRIBUTE TO MF DOOM).
The world is yet again on fire. Monstark and Me discuss political identity, being judgemental bastards, cognitive dissonance, censorship, fear of complacency, taking time to smell the roses and listen to the crickets, being comfortable in your own home, and how to make the most of quarantine. It's a veritable buffet bonanza of blathering.
It’s the return of artist Dave Correia! We discuss the making of our Elder Thing sculpture, which was featured at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. We talk through the process, challenges and lessons that came with making a ten foot tall tentacle monster on a tiny budget.
This week features visual artist and graphic novelist Natalie McKean! We talk art, origins and the fascinating reasons Natalie creates "metaphysical sci-fi". Prepare to follow us through some strange and unexpected wormholes as we get into the nature of reality and creativity!
This week features multi-tentacled visual artist, artrepreneur and storyteller Rick Kitagawa! We hit you with art talk and inspiration for when your art becomes business, and even preview Rick's alter ego as a robotic Cthulhu crimefighter!
This week's episode features 11-string bassist and composer Jean Baudin! We discuss his musical evolution, his strange and wonderful gear, video game inspiration and secrets of Nuclear Rabbit. Sprinkled in for flavor are songs from his album "2600" and the Nuclear Rabbit album "Intestinal Fortitude".
All music by Jean Baudin (Mechanical Fairies, Uncanny Valley) and Nuclear Rabbit (It's My Birthday!). Buy it all at jeanbaudin.com.
