We Don’s Need No Water

Wood Burning Project

 

Good day everyone and welcome back to KDOI Podcasting, I am your host Timothy Kimo Brien and here we create more than we consume through projects that inspire you to drop your cell phone and pick up anything at hand to create something. We also talk with Artists that want to remove the mysterious veil between Artists and Audiences.

So where did I get the idea for this project, well many years ago, back when I was a kid, my older brother Mike got a wood burning kit when he was about 8 or 10, which meant I was that annoying little brother of 4 or 6.

Digital Music Creation Project

Welcome back, we hope you have enjoyed all the projects in this season so far, lets go ahead and get started into this episodes project creating digital music.

Today’s episode will be doing double duty as we will be previewing the music to our next podcast Grey HeroesNo One Gets Out Clean coming soon to a podcast catcher near you.

For over 10 years I have been using a program called Magix to make digital music. The great thing about this project is you just need a basic understanding of music, and that basic understanding is what sounds good to you and to be brave enough to make wonderful mistakes. This program is based on loops and digital instruments. Our main focus will be on the loops as they have already been created for you and we will go into some interesting song structure that you can use right out of the box.

The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword


Welcome back to KDOI Podcasting, this project is our poetry project.

My first real exposure to poetry was in my honors English class in high School. We were reading poems and the teacher, Ms Baxter (battle Axe Baxter) skipped over T.S. Elliot because she said he was to esoteric for high school students. Needless to say he became my favorite.

We go over inspiration, writing, editing, chosing a publish pathway, editing for publishing, cover design and then we being to talk about marketing and networking. Seems simple, its not and for me it is still a work in progress.

Ammo Flower Bed

KDOI Podcasting goes Green. We take an Ammo crate and turn it into a flower bed.

 

Idea behind this project, I am not a green thumb, but my Mother loved daisies and my wife loves tulips. What better way to honor both women than by growing your own flower bed and making it out of an ammo crate.

Creating A Book Clock

Welcome back for Season 2 of KDOI Podcasting.

 

This week we tackle a great 2 for 1 project, the book clock. I originally got the idea for this book clock from The Art of manliness Podcast with  Brett McKay. 

This is a great project to start with because of the numerous ways you can personalize it for your loved ones.

Lets start off with what you will need:

Book, I’d recommend a hard cover about 3 or more inches thick in order to hold the clock works.

Clock Works pay special attention to the post diameter, the post is the center piece where the hands are attached, get an all in one clockworks that includes the numbers.

1 AA battery, needed to run the clock

Crazy glue, not Gorilla glue, crazy glue that dries clear

tweezers or needle nose pliers to place the numbers

box knife

Stage managementvand literary manager as art

Heather Meyers talks to KDOI about Theater arts and creativity

 

So we end out our first season with  Heather Meyers. I have known her for a few years now, about 8 since I lived in Chicago and was introduced at a Vet Art Project meetup. She currently works with American Blues Theater in Chicago and has a number of side projects with that group.

So yes we are Theater folks and this episode has a lot of theater jargon and just a touch of political view points.

 

As stated earlier we met with Vet Art  Project and moved onto Warrior Art Studio. Heather helps run the Blue Ink Playwritting Contest and Ripped from the Headlines. Full disclosure I had a play produced through Ripped and it was an amazing experience.

Listen in as she tackles and almost becomes the first person to score worse than myself in the Satanic Seven Questions, she does redeem herself, but this set up a road trip.

Interview with Kenneth Reed

We are pleased to welcome a good friend of mine and versatile artist Ken Reed to the mic this week. And yes my voice still i snot 100 percent this week, but here is a video of the procedure I had to endure for you my listeners.

 

So that is how I imagine Ken looks, we are protecting his actual picture because he may or may not have appeared on the previous iteration of Kimo’s Den of Iniquity as the ever present “Chicago” who battled with “Tennessee” Mike Finlay, episode 6.

Ken has recently moved out to the West Coast and during the interview he was keeping one eye on his computer and one eye on the fires in Cali as hey were nearing his abode.

Ken has a rich film background doing independent films mainly in the Chicago area with various people. I met up with Ken originally on the job and we quickly discovered that real recognizes real. We had him in the Word Up Poetry Improv Slams and we discuss that aspect of our relationship.  Check out his debut on Word Up Click Here Specifically we discuss the first time that Ken practiced with the troupe and I advised him he would do great and the Chicago Bears wouldn’t win another game that season, sure enough they didn’t win again until this guy came to town.

Discussing art with an actor, playwright and voice actor

 

Mike Finlay, Novelist, Playwright, Crazy Zen Atheist Saving Nashville from itself

 

Today’s guest is Mike Finlay, playwright, poet, novelist, jazz aficionado, actor and painter.

 

 

We had the pleasure of catching Mr Finlay while he was out and about in Nashville enjoying the late summer that only Nashville can give an artist to be inspired by.

The 20 Year working relationship is discussed from their days back at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Mike secures his place in the will as the guy throwing Tim in the ditch.

Mike Finlay started off his artistic exploits at the age of 4 during school and church. His first show that inspired him was A Christmas Carol at the Goodman Theater. Since he saw an actor walk through a wall as part of a special effect he knew he wanted to be an actor.

He began reading Shakespeare at 16 and obtained 2 degrees in theater performance and creative writing at SIU.

Mike really enjoys   not being the mouthpiece for other writers and enjoys having people wrapped with attention at what he writes.

Currently he is writing a play and a few novels. He talks about the first poem and how easy it was to write because he had been studying poetry for so long. Lake Park High School English teacher started him and encouraged him on his path. His first play he didn’t mean to write but was encouraged by the resident playwrighting instructor. He was listening to John Coltrane at the time and called his first play A Love Supreme. He claims that risking making a fool of yourself as his strength and is what is needed to be successful as well as having people who will have your back when you are on stage.

Mike discusses how he balanced his work life, family life and artistic endeavors and it is revealed that Mike’s child will be ruling the world with Tim’s children. He encourages his daughter to work on her projects and ensures he makes time each day to just work on his projects and doesn’t let anyone disturb him.

We discuss his first book of poetry Cecelia’s Blues on Create Space.

Mike takes on the Satanic Seven Questions and scores a 5.5 out of 7 questions correct. Please enjoy his answer to the unladen swallow.

Mike’s season 2 project will be a radio play/drama that he is currently working on for this show
