A seemingly inevitable part of human interaction is toxicity… it is not present in all individuals you meet, but the capacity is there, and more than enough people in the world do not hesitate to show the worst of themselves, especially if it benefits them, and regardless of who may be impacted. It’s clear that Kady Rain is aware of this fact also, as her latest single, the part-pop, part-industrial and highly danceable Crooked focuses squarely on these types of individuals. Big props to Kady Rain and collaborator/bandmate Morgan Davis for penning such a powerful follow-up to the high energy lead single Got Away… go find this one on your favorite streaming service or digital storefront, or even better, show some direct support by visiting the Bandcamp links above, but whatever you do, don’t sleep on this one.
Joining a podcast full of hilarious people is always a blast, and when it’s the From Left Field crew of Wendy Simmons, JJ Summers and Morgan Davis, it’s always good for a laugh or two, as well as the occasional bit of thought-provoking conversation or trivia. This time around, I joined the crew along with special guest and director Stefan Gill, and with the season’s theme being Saturday Night Live and its lineage of films, everyone sat down to talk MacGruber (a personal favorite of mine). The topics came fast and furious, so check it out and have yourself a good old time.
Local musician and actor Ryan Darbonne, in light of experiences growing up in Austin and experiences within the Austin culture as a young adult, felt inspired to capture that experience into something he could share. After sharing his script with OVRLD creator Morgan Day, the two felt that the idea needed to become a reality. After enlisting the help of cinematographer Mariana Gonzalez, the gears began to turn for I AM TX. Ryan reached out to Audrey Campbell of Pleasure Venom, Jonathan Horstmann of BLXPTN and Greg Williams, better known as Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice, and boom, a cast was born.
I AM TXis now in the crowdfunding stage, and the Indiegogo Campaign is up and running. If you would like to help turn this vision into a reality, there are many things you can do. Share the campaign with your friends, whether they’re in Austin, in Texas, or anywhere else in the world. If you feel inspired, go ahead and donate, as there are many levels with many excellent perks available. This vision will happen, but every bit of support that is garnered will improve the vision. We thank you in advance.
