Summer Camp, Psychic Dreams, Ethnomusicology, and Jaja Ding Dongs



E114 – While catching up, we talk psychic abilities and manifesting your thoughts into reality. Do you believe in karma? Then we jump into what’s on mama Mouse’s mind: summer camps and plans for her 3 kids now that California is opening up. After reminiscing about our camp memories, including wheelchairs and Wildman, we talk about the safety of summer camps, especially sleepaway camps, when it comes to COVID and predators. Of course this gets us talking about kidnappings and murders here in San Diego and we mention a bit about Chelsea King, John Gardner, Danielle Van Dam, and David Westerfield. Joelle tells her personal story of the Miramar Lake Jogger, which is super disturbing. Then Weens exerts her telekinetic powers onto her microphone, which gets us back onto pyschic abilities. She even teaches us how to control dreams! Hear the crazy experiment that Weens conducted on this, proving her powers. Speaking of control, or lack thereof, we have received some unsolicited dick pics. But the only kinds of ding dongs we’re interested in are of the jaja variety – hear Julianne’s story on this! We jump into her ethnomusicology class and learn about microtones, syncopation, and what her jazz musician friends have to say about Western music. We also want to ask you – our listener – about what puts you in the zone? Julianne teases future interviews on this subject with saxophonist Bob Mintzer, keyboardist Matt Politano, and drummer Steve Ferrone, who, along with bassist Matt Cory, are known as The Coffee Shop Trio. They have gigs every Sunday that we will advertise on our social media, so please be sure to follow us @mouseandweens on all the platforms!

Actor W. Earl Brown: Scream, Deadwood and More – Pt 1



E92 – We’re excited to bring you the first half of our inspiring interview with W. Earl Brown, a very talented and prolific actor that you’ve seen as the main enforcer and right-hand man Dan Dority in HBO’s Deadwood, as Warren in There’s Something About Mary (of franks and beans fame!), as Kenny the news cameraman in Scream, and as the sheriff in Preacher, just to name a few of his works. He is also an amazing storyteller, screenwriter, producer, musician, and wonderful human being. Hear behind the scenes details about his work and inspirations, many from darker places, with stories and mentions about Lemmy from Motorhead, Elijah Wood, Wes Craven, Jamie Kennedy, Johnny Depp, Drew Barrymore, the Farrelly brothers, Ben Stiller, Chris Elliott, David Milch, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Cusak, Chris Farley, Timothy Olyphant, Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt and more. We learn his backstory from Kentucky to Chicago to LA, his trajectory in successful films and series, his advice to new actors, and his personal, current, and upcoming projects like Bloodworth and Dad Band. If you are a fan of comedy, horror, or westerns, or a fan of rock, metal, or country music, you will find inspiration in this episode, full of wonderful nuggets of wisdom and vulnerability from the perspective of a seasoned actor, husband, father, and friend.

Coming Out and Jealousy



E31 – Weens is coming out! She is Julianne Eggold and featured in The Lazy Teacher Podcast episode 39 Mouse is still wrestling with being anonymous, but having a secret is not fun and is causing stress. Most parents in suburbia have secrets and dumb past lives. Just look at Brett Kavanaugh, our favorite douchebag jock turd. We switch gears and discuss a fan’s question about a jealous girlfriend breaking up with him over a photo. Jealousy is a tough emotion and we share our stories, both in our relationships and in our careers. Mouse tells the story about when she knew she couldn’t be a doctor, and Weens’ coworker Jackson DeFreest from The Rookie defines envy vs jealousy. We talk about promoting other entertainers but having the tendency to self-promote instead and hold onto our one nut. On that nut note, please leave us a good review on iTunes!

Dr. Madd Vibe gives his feelings on racism, politics, but mostly gets down and dirty with his corned beef! Hear all of his upcoming musical projects and tours with Brand New Step, Fishbone, Dr. Madd Vibe and the Missin Links, and the Celebrating David Bowie world tour. This is one of music’s great original artists! Don’t miss it. Song credits: Weens and Angelo Moore. Used with permission.
