313 Admiral Grey “The Human Dream Project”

Admiral Grey is a multidisciplinary artist and performer whose new work, The Human Dream Project, records people describing dreams they have had, and then illustrates the recordings using colorful, surreal puppetry and original music.A multimedia project that continues to expand, Admiral developed a hotline for the project so that people can call in their dreams 24 hours a day, and has plans to create dream phone booths around the world where people can call in from. She has also made stop motion videos illustrating dreams, as well as colorful and absurd ‘commercials’ for the hotline using live action, puppetry, and animation. The show has had workshop performances locally at Opus 40 and in New York City at St. Ann’s Warehouse, and is now preparing to launch its full length premiere at The Tank in Manhattan in April. The most ambitious Human Dream Project performance to date, the show will illustrate a wide variety of dreams, incorporate countless puppets and setpieces that she makes by hand, include a new score by sound designer and musical director Chad Raines, and will feature a new cast of incredible artists and performers, several of which are Kingston locals.

Today we learn about the conception of the Human Dream Project and why Admiral pours her loving energy into it. We also talk about art making, art as a spiritual practice, dreams, dreams as a shared human experience, the hard parts of being an artist and the rewards, and what Admiral does when she has some down time. Come to her Carnival Party THIS Saturday, February 24th from [7:30]-10:30pm at the Old Dutch Church in Kingston. It’s a fundraiser for her work. There’s a sliding scale entry and then get your tickets for games, food, raffle, and more. Proceeds go to support the Human Dream Project.

310 Imbolc, Archetypes and Writing

WOAH! Starting season 7!?!!!!!

Today’s show dives into the many benefits of handwriting. Hint: It clarifies thinking; improves understanding, memory, and application; and improves communication.

Then we pivot to a Imbolc/Candlemas discussion. If you’re local, you can join the Center for Symbolic Studies folks to celebrate this weekend.

I share from a favorite publication, We’Moon to expand the conversation on Imbolc.

In preparation for the Imbolc holiday, I pull three Archetype cards and discuss their meanings: The Ring, The Thread and Aletheia.

Inspired by a doc about the first ladies of hip hop, I play some music in their honor.

Finally, I conclude with my self-care diary. Still jogging, even if it’s super slow!

308 Natalie Freihon “People Over Profits”

Natalie Freihon is the founder of Strange Bird Hospitality which currently encompasses The Orchard Townhouse, Nat’s on Bank, Nat’s on Bleecker and soon Nat’s Mountain House.  Freihon comes to this role with a wealth of experience in the industry, including: General Manager at restaurants Double Crown, Freemans, Peels, and Mercat; Director of Food and Beverage at Ace Hotel New York, overseeing The Breslin and John Dory; and General Manager at Soho House and Ludlow House, where she led the social club’s downtown debut. Originally from Los Angeles, Freihon holds a degree in Sociology from Columbia University. She lives in Greenwich Village with her husband Steve and daughter Bowie.

“I’ve been restauranting for quite some time. Throughout the growth of my career I saw far too frequently what wasn’t working and what I didn’t want in terms of being a hospitality group owner.”

That inspired her to want to make some changes and try to be the example.  It’s certainly been difficult since currently there’s no “guidebook” or structure in how to build a company in her vision, plus, well COVID. But! They’re getting there through consistent positive choices by putting people over profit.

Today on the show Natalie shares how she got to where she is, including what it was like being a successful woman in a male dominated industry. Plus she let’s us in on the newest of the family, a family friendly restaurant/bar/event space and new neighborhood hotspot in Tannersville. They are hosting a Hudson Valleys Movers and Shakers Party, January 18th from 5-7pm so that you all can check out what’s happening their and plan your events in this amazing and adaptable space. You can also reach her at natalie@strangebirdhospitality.com

In the second half of the show I talk about Caring Majority Rising, an organization that is also trying to put people first despite the roadblocks in our State government. They have a new bill they are trying to pass to talk the unnecessary and costly middleman out of long term health care, and they are having a training this week for those who want to put the pressure on your reps to pass this vital legislation. Here’s the article I read by Michael Solow explaining what all this is about.

And while I sight and call upon the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I do so cautiously acknowledging the points in this article, Codeswitch.

FINALLY, here’s the Astrology report for 2024.
