Demonic Sweaters Podcast #9 - Jesse Vance - Being a freelance creative & not working for the man

Me and Jesse had an amazing conversation about the shrinking American Dream, Trade school vs Bachelor’s Degrees, student debt, running a DIY experimental music and art venue, non-profit corporations, the difficulties of being an artist and not getting paid, and being a venue and not making enough to pay, building custom sound installations, dealing with things outside of your control and how not to lose sight of your goals, 9 to 5 vs freelance, facebook addiction vs promotion, meditation, large companies demanding you care about things that are impossible to care about, police brutality, private prison industry, war on drugs, and herd mentality.

Demonic Sweaters Podcast #6 - Chad Sine, art, being mistaken for a serial killer, pop culture, and fucked up job interviews

For this episode my best friend Chad Sine is my guest on Skype and talks about his Special FX art studio, Bixby Studios and some of the crazy things that happened to him while transporting a life-sized Samurai model he made in Tampa. We also get into the return of Twin Peaks and X-files, Dexter, Breaking Bad, True Detective, and Bloodline.

I share some weird job interview stories and how Brittany Spears gives me the bad music equivalent of Stockholm Syndrome. Then Chad gives us more insight into what it’s like being a freak magnet. We had a great time on this podcast and it’s definitely entertaining!

All of this with a great soundtrack by The Always People, The Children of Mu, and Justin Robert.

Demonic Sweaters Podcast #5 - John Makohen, underage prostitution for drugs, and the Tylenol black market of NYC

For my 5th Podcast I have my first ever guest, John Makohen (Johnny Underage) on Skype talking about drugs, underage prostitution, weird Tylenol black market shoplifting rings, and about his soon-to-be completed book detailing his experiences of sexual abuse, drug addiction and recovery.

"When I was younger and ripe for the taking, whoring myself out to old men for an hour or two was my easiest way to secure a fix. It seems it was the safest, quickest, and most reliable way to keep the needle full and the monkey relaxed."

I also touch on my recent gay furry graphic novel purchase, Art Bell's return to talk and play some music by deluxepaint 418, Neocamp, and Auterkeia!

Art Bell Returns!

Johnny contacted me after the podcast and wanted to make the following corrections to his interview.
"The boy that helped me without knowing really helped me from losing the four years. I lost my sister in December, an ex-lover to HIV/AIDS liver complications in january a friend who left the streets of NYC in 1989 for a life in France to Cancer in February and My mother to Cancer in March.  I was spending time with this cat who really didnt understand me, especially my desire for friendship before Sex. A concept he could not wrap his mind around. (young very young)But I was so intrigued by this by this boy that my self-destructive nature or need to self-medicate all the pain I was feeling never even knocked on my door. Our friendship fizzled out. He definitely does not know the impact he had on me and how I probably wouldn't be sitting in this office typing this email at the moment if he was not present in my life during the cold hard winter of 2015.
