Viral Play, Episode 9 – VCR Monster Edition

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2011 by Carlos Macias

On our second show back from a quick hiatus (yes, as in a new Mess Hall’s been out on iTunes for a minute now) we do it up big and bring in the full cast of VCR Monster. Jordan Kennedy and Andrew Serrato help us ring in the new year with talk of resolutions, defining their sound, feedback hate, Jordan’s custom-made guitar/MIDI hybrid “DG20,” secret first shows, and Moms as an EP cover.

But, of course, we couldn’t let a Jordan interview go without getting him to open up about his stylin’ hairdo and how that plays into his overall philosophy on VCR Monster personality versus the in-the-band vibe as a member of Media.

Oh, and stay tuned after the interview to hear rapping sensation J. Andrews freestyle over an iPhone synthesized, freshly-made beat by VCR Monster. Sit back, relax, and listen in on our latest historical document…

Viral Play – Mess Hall Ep. 6

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by Carlos Macias

School season, child rearing, headbutting, missed interviews. All a part of what’s been happening with Viral Play lately.

No worries, though. The show must go on, and it will. Only maybe not as timely as before — because we’ve always been timely, ‘members?

Anyway, to tide you guys over until a proper Viral Play we bring you a special episode of “Mess Hall.” Carlos and the gang hid from the rain at “Jimmy and Eddie’s Apartment” (patent pending) to talk about the moving-away-from-home experience, the Conan/Leno situation, NBC hate, goals of the upcoming “Talk Show,” Jimmy’s new nickname, and end it with talk of athletes’ extracurricular activities (think: Tiger Woods).

Even Hitler comes up! Truly a mess hall episode not to be missed.
