SERIOUS INTROSPECTION

Serious Introspection season 2 episode 2

This week we had Juha Valkeapää to talk about his production 2341 AD, and Malin Gustavsson who explained a bit about her work as a diversity consultant. We also channeled the spirit of a country and western supergroup, phoned John's parents, and met the Pope Urban VII of Mad House Helsinki. As always, it couldn't happen without Justin Tyler Tate (world's best hype man), Ernest Truely (follow @room4error!), video master Lotta Blomberg, and sound master Joosep Tormis.

Tomorrow (2 March) is episode 3, with Juuso Paaso to talk about Finnish zine culture, and Martina Marti from the GNAB Collective's Reverie performance-installation. Serious Introspection is part of the Mad House Helsinki third season.

with John W. Fail is a live show in Helsinki, Finland. 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. We try our best to entertain. 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. The show takes place at Mad House Helsinki's Ihana Baari, and is free to attend. We've made videos available from all episodes of the show here for you to watch. 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. We also will occasionally post audio podcasts when we get the time to go more in-depth with people, outside of the public show. 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. We are available to be booked for parties, wedding, bar mitzvahs and other events. The for-profit arm of Serious Introspection is called SI Services and we're up for anything, really! 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.
