Episode #92: Gregg Deal, Joseph Asher Hale, Deidree Bennett & Van Der Poot


In this episode, Tim and Jelly go real artsy fartsy--literally.  This could be their most poopular show to date. Tim & Jelly chat with multi-media DC artists, Gregg Deal and Joseph Archer Hale whose duo-show, Misappropriations, opens at The Dunes on July 5th.  Included in this conversation is Deidree (Dee) Bennett, the Director of Fine Arts at The Dunes. We soon discover Dee's sexy art voice delivers insight on the DC art scene better than a UPS driver from a Skinamax flick. Gregg and Joe face the pressures of saving the world through their art with incredible courage.  And you have to listen to find out who wins the better minority contest!

The gang is soon joined by yet, another guest!   Mr. Van Der Poot, a big-time art collector who to everyone's surprise, hangs artwork in public rest-rooms, including highway rest stops.  Arguably, an overlooked opportunity for a captive audience. This launches a lively debate on whether or not an artist should sell to Mr. Poot and everyone has an opinion.  Mr. Poot believes the amount of urine splash picked up by black light indicates the impact of the artwork on the viewer.  Certainly something to think about.  He also claims that the artwork will inspire vandals to scrawl better on the bathroom walls.  Keep an open mind and flush out your own opinions.

Episode #91: DC Artist Scott G. Brooks & Jim De’Muse


Tim & Jelly are still reeling from their interview with internationally recognized DC based artist, Scott G. Brooks. Don't forget the G!  Scott describes himself as a figurative artist but that word is way too boring to describe the distorted reality, human oddities and arresting images he paints. Tim and Jelly learn a lot about life as an accomplished artist, models (they are tricky), the problem with answering the question, "What is this painting about?" and how a bad ass Smokey The Bear ended up in a flat file.

Jim De'Muse joins the second half of the show.  He contacted Jelly claiming to be represented in several of Scott's paintings. It turns out Jim is paranoid and Scott is really nice. They both hang out at The Satellite Room in DC. Weird.

Listen to the end and hear our free commercials for Hope Floats and Dollar Shave Club.

Special thanks to Jon Menaster from Hand Poured Sketch for playing Jim De'Muse.

More special thanks to our charmingly tipsy and super talented  co-producer and writer, Alexis Turrentine.
