On this special Mini-Episode series that we’re going to call Piecing Dave Together, host David Rosen fills you in on what’s happening in his life, his music, his projects, and everything else he’s been up to. These occasional mini-episodes will serve to fill in the blanks so that he doesn’t have to ramble too much about stuff during the regular episodes.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I decided to share Episode 33 of my other podcast, Bird Road. While Bird Road is normally a show about news, politics and comedy that I do with my best friend Q, sometimes we dig into culture and end up talking movies, and on Episode 33, we talked almost entirely about movies. First we interviewed Cristian Ponce, the creator of Frecuencia Kirlian aka Ghost Radio, a really cool animated web series that’s influenced by things such as John Carpenter, The X Files and Frank Miller. After the interview, Q and I talk about my favorite movies of the year so far, as well as run down the list of some of the most acclaimed movies of the year.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I interview filmmaker Joe Lujan and actress/radio personality Corey Taylor, the organizers of this year’s Las Vegas 48 Hour Film Project. The 48 Hour Film Project is an event that happens in cities all over the world where teams of filmmakers are tasked with a specific set of instructions and have to make an entire short film in 48 hours. I’ve actually participated in it many times myself as a music composer, and it’s always a fun time and leads to some crazy, fun, interesting films.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I interview and get reactions from writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky about our episode that we did on Bus Party To Hell (Episode 8 of this show). This is the first in what we hope to make a regular series of getting reactions from filmmakers. This was the perfect opportunity to do this first one though because the movie, Bus Party To Hell, which has been available on VOD, iTunes and most streaming movie stores for a while now, is finally out TODAY on Blu-ray/DVD! It can be purchased from many popular stores that sell movies, and on June 26th, it hits 20,000 Redbox locations across the country. So be on the look-out for Bus Party To Hell, a crazy, blood & boob filled movie in which a satanic cult stops a party bus on its way to Burning Man and all hell breaks loose. Starring Tara Reid, Sadie Katz and Stefani Blake.
On this quick mini-episode of Piecing It Together, I take a look at some of the movies that I am looking forward to over the next few months. This is really a place-holder since I’ll be out of town for 10 days and I’ll be getting back to town literally the day this episode posts… So rather than skip a week, I figured I’d record a little something to hold you over. So no, this is not our normal format in which we look at a new movie and try to figure out what other movies inspired it… This is just a fun little mini-episode.
On this quick mini-episode David Rosen checks in with the Piecing It Together listeners (are we calling them #puzzlers yet?) and gives an update on how things are going with the show. He also spotlights a bunch of other podcasts that he was a guest on recently.
In the first mini-episode (unless you count the intro Episode 0… But who would do that?), I take a look at how Episode 1 went, let you know what movie we’ll be covering in Episode 2, and preview a new song off my upcoming album A Different Kind Of Dream. Really though, I wouldn’t pay attention to what I say in this first mini-episode because I kind of rushed it for the sake of getting a new episode to test our podcast feed… Don’t worry, we’ll get this thing straight by next week.
