This episode, Kabrina H Adams (aka Moonbear) joins me to discuss how she got into skateboarding, multimedia production (podcasting and DJing), modelling and acting. We also talk about public ‘nudity’ because she is a body freedom activist — it is not against the law for women to have exposed breasts in New York City and she wants women to have the same freedom as men and not be forced to cover up.
Vince Rocca talks about the hurdles involved with producing an independent movie in Hollywood these days compared to the already extremely challenging situation back when he was able to make Kisses and Caroms (trailer) in 2004 for $10,000 and get it distributed after a long and depressing slog at it which nearly cost him his life! It went on to make $1,000,000 in video sales, but did Vince see any of that?
After a month long hiatus mostly due to colds and flus, I’m happy to present this conversation I had with writer, director and producer Todd Luoto from Los Angeles and previous guest Natalie Zarrelli from New York! We talk about the mysterious video game Polybius, about which Natalie wrote over at Atlas Obscura:
Gamers who tried it couldn’t stop playing, and began acting oddly: they were nauseous, stressed, had horrific nightmares. Others had seizures or attempted suicide, many felt unable to control their own thoughts. It was only later that they recalled how Polybius was serviced more often than other games. Men in black suits opened the machine every week, recorded its data, and left, with no interest in its coins. Soon after it appeared, the mysterious arcade game vanished without warning—taken by the men in black suits, leaving no record of its existence.
