Ahoy sailors! TJ here. Just thought I’d check in and see how you’re doing. How ARE you doing? You look great.

Sam and I participated in the Portland 48-hour Film Project a couple weeks back. Mostly Sam. I’d love to take credit for it, but really I barely chipped in during the initial brainstorming session. Friends of the show Amarette Gregor, Josh Winegarner, Mychael Foster, and others did a heckuva job. The film is called “Racer in the Void,” and you can see it here:

In other news, we had a lovely conversation with Scott Engdahl, a Portland improviser, actor, writer, and wearer of many hats. I urge you to listen if you haven’t already.

Click here to learn more about Bath Night, an absurdly good sketch comedy show featuring Scott Engdahl and written by Sean McGrath. It’s at Shaking the Tree Studio, located at SE 14th and Stark. It ends on August 30, so get your tix now! Seriously, it’s a whole lot of fun. I think movie buffs will especially get a kick out of it. Also, it’s a great excuse to support PDX theater!

Be sure to check out the Brody Theater website for information about improv shows and classes. I just took an improv class there, and sweet lord is it worth it. It is a ton of fun and not scary AT ALL. You should check it out if you’re even a tiny bit interested.

Thanks for listening, watching, reading, masticating, gesticulating, prognosticating, and other verbs-ing. Give us a shout if you have any comments or questions!

Regards,

TJ

Hey there, folks! Sam here with a couple odds ‘n’ ends.

Ok, and what about Sam and TJ? Well, this weekend we will be diving in to the Portland 48 Hour Film Festival. Participants begin Friday evening with a prompt and have to turn in a finished film by the end of Sunday. You’ve probably heard about it, as it is a worldwide competition! It’s gonna be crazy, we’ll make sure to announce the finished product.

In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying an Alejandro Jodowrosky retrospective at the Hollywood Theater. This week they are playing “The Dance of Reality” and “Holy Mountain.” See them if you are into weird shit. I think I’ll have to tell people about it anyway, you could save yourself the trip. Or you should watch “Snowpiercer,” which is just a spot-on sci fi. Really, Hollywood Theater has just got it

goin’ on.

Lastly – we are trying to build the podcast and collect resources to make it sound as good as possible. I personally enjoy having some ambient noise included in the recording because it makes it feel a little more natural. BUT, if you listeners out there have any feedback on the sound quality of what we do, please email us at inmediasrad@gmail. We’d love to know.

That’s it for now, chickens. Stay groovy.

Hello, everyone! TJ here. Another week has passed, and we’re all one week closer to the unknowable catharsis of death! Hmm, if death is “unknowable,” why would I call it “catharsis”? Poor writing, Teej. Off to a great start.

Last Wednesday we had a wonderful talk with J. Scott Winegarner, a local animator/producer/excellent human being. If you haven’t already listened to our conversation, you can do so here. Or check it out on iTunes here. Or shop for plush dinosaurs here.

Before recording, we went out for ice cream and Cuban coffee at a handmade ice cream joint called Fifty Licks on SE Clinton. If you agree to be a guest on our podcast, we’ll treat you well.

In case you didn’t catch them the first time, here are links to some of the stuff we spoke about:

– Josh’s blog and project showcase

– PMP Productions

– Free Will Entertainment, Will Vinton’s enterprise

– Top Shelf Productions

Gunter and Bean, local artist/helper with Winegarner’s latest project

In other news, I’ve decided to get serious about writing a pilot episode for Fruit High, the preview for which you may have already seen. Here it is again:

 

Lastly, I’m planning to see Godzilla today. I’ve heard good things.

As always, feel free to pester us via email at inmediasrad@gmail.com, or via Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.

Farewell!

Hello, all! T.J. here. I thought I’d start a news section on the site, just to keep everyone abreast of the In Medias Rad goings on. Our first piece of news is that we’re starting a news section. Wow, isn’t this great? This section is already so informative! What a great decision this is!

Sam and I both have pretty full schedules these days, but we expect to have more time for making movies, recording podcast episodes, and writing goofy articles in the near future. Until then, we’ll continue our usual trickle of semi-amusing podcast episodes, comics, articles, and whatever else happens to be oozing from our creative pores. Figurative language. Boom.

I’d like to give a big ol’ thanks to everyone who has been reading, listening, or otherwise consuming our work (gross). If you have feedback of any kind, feel free to comment on this thread or blast us an email at inmediasrad@gmail.com. If you have a media topic you’d like to discuss on our podcast, let us know! We will probably have you on, even if your musings are only tangentially related to media.

Here are some upcoming Portlandy events that might be fun:

 

NW Animation Festival:

Hollywood Theatre, May 12-18

 

The Best Of HUMP! Dan Savage’s Dirty Movie Tour

Cinema 21, May 15-17

 

McMenamins 15th Annual UFO Festival

Hotel Oregon, May 15-18

 

That’s it! We hope to have more mind-blowing news soon!
