Episode 43 - Andrew Lawson 1-6-17

February 6, 2017 @ 9:00 am

I'm officially in it.  The universe is tightening its grip and my neck is where the thumb meets the index. My small-business cleaning career and creative world are clashing in a no-holds-barred tangle to the death, and my personal life and sanity are on the chopping block. Ok, maybe I'm being a little dramatic... But, things are getting a little dicey in the world of the mines podcast host, yours truly. In other news, Andrew Lawson, Asbury Park's very own bad boy, joins me today in the Sungeon to shares some insights into the art of comedy. He clues me in on the little things to look for when doing a set as well as things to look for in other comics while they're up there doing their thing. All the while peppering his own flavor into our get-together with spontaneous quips and bits he's working through.

Episode 42 - Into the Void

January 29, 2017 @ 3:07 pm

Sometimes on one’s journey they are confronted with the impending weight of the universe crushing down on them. This is the void. Now, when you’re 36 years old, have two children, a wife, house, insurance, car, and utility payments, and a small business; things tend to get a little tricky. Especially when you’re trying to fit a creative pursuit in there.

Today Im sharing with you a couple monologues I recorded having to do with the topic of creativity and existential funk. There will be no guest this episode, but I hope you enjoy the inside look at how information rattles around inside my head.

Episode 41 - Jack Steiger 1-24-17

January 24, 2017 @ 1:35 am

Join me down the Sungeon today for my chat with local comedian and fellow open mic frequenter, Jack Steiger.  Jack holds a special place in my heart because he was the first comic I got an up close look at.  He was there at my very first open mic at Espresso Joe's and his act was my first look at how it's done.  We covered everything from living in Australia, comedy, film school, and even the price of cocaine in Australia.  If you have an interest in comedy check out this episode.

Episode 40 - Heather Lowry/No Balls Allowed part 2 12-21-16

December 21, 2016 @ 9:08 am

Welcome to Episode 40, folks! I know I’m a bit overdue, but t’s for good reason. I’ve been busy writing sketch, hitting open mikes, and meeting the awesome array of comics from the Asbury Park and Northern New Jersey areas. I’ve been trying to carve out a style, and name for myself as one of the beginners to watch(with very little luck), when I happened upon the amazing Heather Lowry, and without even realizing it, begun to organically form a comedy friendship with her. Here, you’ll hear about her comedy show, ‘No Balls Allowed part 2.’ A comedy event tailored toward women for the sake of advancing the ever shifting pool of female talent. This event takes place tomorrow night at the Infamous Brighton Bar in Long Branch NJ. IF YOU HAVE BALLS YOU CAN ATTEND THIS EVENT.  PLEASE COME OUT AND SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ARTISTS!!!

Episode 39 - Mike Cole / Dr. Scott 8-9-16

September 9, 2016 @ 10:19 pm

How goes it, my friends? This week Mike Cole stops in for a quick chat.  He's a good friend of mine, so we shoot the shit about the present goings-on in our lives, and dissect the ol', "tell her when friends are around", left hook.  Also, I give Dr. Scott, a recent acquaintance of mine, a ride home from a comedy open mic and he fills me in on the finer points of his personal reinvention, and PTSD induced flash-backs- and their consequences. Check out bandcamp.com/Purplesuns if you like the tunes that you're hearing at the intro and outro of my show.

Episode 38 Improv 101 Upright Citizens Brigade / Emmanuel Pineda / Susie 8-30-16

August 30, 2016 @ 11:59 am

If you're wondering what I've been up to lately, this is the episode for you.  I enrolled myself into improv 101 at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre NY.  The Upright Citizens Brigade was a sketch show in the 90s founded by Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh.  As an improv team they gained popularity, began teaching improv, eventually opened up their own theatre and school in NYC, and now own two training centers and 4 theaters; two theaters and a training center in LA and two theaters and a training center in NY.  I've since finished 101 and am onto 201, so I figured I'd give you a taste of what that was like for me.  I never went to college, and never travelled for schooling, so it was a bit of a new experience for me, and being 35, I'm getting into "Old dog new tricks" territory.  I've been pushing myself out of my comfort zone as a theme lately, so you're going to hear me approach someone on the train, Susie, who turns out to be someone pursuing a career in "show biz". And, to top it all off, I sit down with classmate, Emmanuel Pineda, to talk radio, sketch, podcasts, and of course, our improv 101 class, our classmates, and the effect it's had on us as people, and aspiring funny people.

Episode 37 - Cringe Worthy Poets Collective 8-23-16

August 23, 2016 @ 9:55 pm

Hello, and welcome back to another addition of mines.  My, "Throw Away Your Vote", campaign is off to a tepid start, so I'm here to fill you in on the main bullet points.  Fuck Trump, he's a joke; Screw Hillary, she really needs it.  Pencil in Bernie Sanders come the 2016 presidential election.  It's not a pretty campaign, but it's simple.  We don't need a nutmeg in the oval office, and a criminal globalist is a criminal globalist. In other news, I met up with the Cringe Worthy Poets Collective to talk, reading, writing, and arithmetic.  Yes, arithmetic.  These 3, (but really 4), fellows, (and lady) filled me in on the finer points of being a "collective" and working together.  Mainly it boils down to letting each member put their best foot forward and supporting each other in their individual decisions. They've made their presence known in the Rochester area by being the first to write, print, assemble, and publish everything all themselves. Classic Chapmen (and woman) Join me today and meet Nathan William Stole, Julio Montalvo Valentin, Robert J. Smith, and Mistral Celeste Khan-Becerra, respectively known as, The Cringe Worthy Poets Collective... Collective, collective, collective, collective, collective, collective

Episode 36 - Darryl Petrone 8-14-16

August 14, 2016 @ 7:19 pm

Welcome back to the Sungeon for an all new episode of mines.  I got Darryl Petrone to come down and we caught up with how things have been going for the last few months.  He's known for being an extreme drummer in bands like, Departed, Stabbing Eden, and he even filled in, in a failure-to-launch style, Purple Suns reboot for my, then, retired drummer.  He goes over the finer points of rehauling a band's sound without alienating old fans.  Hopefully this new sound is enough to please old fans, bring in new ones, and fulfill the band's own creative desires.
