Serious Introspection episode 6

Episode six brought together Jaakko Blomberg of Yhteismaa and Ossi Koskelainen, Ilpo Heikkinen & Emmi Venna of the Post-MJ Era Institute of Consciousness. We discussed legacy, openness, social boundaries, memories, divorce, and shark costumes. I unsuccessfully tried to get rid of a Gertrude Stein book, played Michael Jackson trivia, and saw St. Elmo's Fire spitting ions in the ether.

Hey, sorry, we had some tech difficulties again. More camera fuckups and the audio feed was missing some mics, so I had to mix in some camera sound and it's not optimal. I promise we'll get back on track next week, when our trusted technical supervisor will be back. Tero Nauha will be there to talk about his book launch, and we'll try some other hijinks. There's only two episodes left so if you're in Helsinki, please come along!

We're also pleased to announce that Serious Introspection is now available in "podcast" form from the iTunes store. Thanks also to Mad House for letting us do this show in the first place, and please don't miss the rest of Mad House's 2nd season programme!


Next post:

with John W. Fail is a live show in Helsinki, Finland. The show takes place at Mad House Helsinki's Ihana Baari, and is free to attend. We try our best to entertain. You know, we did eight shows in the first season and it was pretty time-consuming, but we're excited to be coming back for more in 2016. Each week, John along with hype man Justin Tyler Tate, interviews people about their creative process and tries to deliver a direct, communicative experience about art and performance. We've made videos available from all episodes of the show here for you to watch. We also will occasionally post audio podcasts when we get the time to go more in-depth with people, outside of the public show. The show will probably move to Wednesdays in 2016 but we still need to work out those details. Next year we will return between February and April for season two; well, it's season two for us, but season three for Mad House, which is a bit confusing. The videos aren't always perfect and the audio even less so, but we hope you still enjoy them. But wait, there's more! We will come to your event and offer our services for hosting, hyping and media specialisation (live tweeting) for a variable fee. The for-profit arm of Serious Introspection is called SI Services and we're up for anything, really! We are available to be booked for parties, wedding, bar mitzvahs and other events. If you'd like to find out more about Serious Introspection, you can start by watching these episodes and seeing if it's your cup of tea. We have a Facebook page which we use to post info about the upcoming shows and videos as they are released. The hashtag #SeriousIntrospection contains the running stream of live tweets from our media specialist Ernest Truely (and anyone else who might contribute). We have made the show available as a podcast via iTunes and Stitcher. So yeah, that's it, pretty much. We will announce future events and SI-related matters here so feel free to check back any time. We're trying to keep this page simple, if for no other reason than our cup runneth over with websites already.
