Do you love listening to music? Don't you sometimes wonder just what the heck was going on in the artist's head when they wrote the music you love? Well, we here at Candy Teeth Radio answer a resounding "Yes!" to both of those questions! And fortunately for us, (and for you beloved listeners) we occasionally get to speak to musicians and get the story straight from the source. Take this newest episode of CTR for example, where we catch up with our good friend Crazy Monk AKA Steve Olson to talk about his brand new hip-hop album, "Concrete Jungle Mystic"! This disc has been on heavy rotation at Candy Teeth Creative recently, and we were very excited to chat with Steve about his process and thoughts during the album's making! He also breaks it down for us on a few specific tracks, talking about everything from the lyrics to his favorite beatmaker collective, The Jade Palace Guard! So sit back, relax, and join us on this mystical journey of galactic proportions! Thank you for listening, and as always, Stay Alive!!!

Do you ever wonder what's REALLY going on? Not just here on Earth, but "Out There" too? Sometimes it seems like the best explanation is the craziest sounding one! And on this new episode of Candy Teeth Radio, we bring in an expert to help explain it all! Join us as we talk with artist, painter, and conspiracy theory PHD* (*not really), the delightful Charms Won! His range of interests and depth of knowledge are astounding, and we pick his brain about everything from secret celebrity hand signals, death cults, and the very real possibility of unfriendly aliens living among us! We also discover that Jeremy, Geoff, AND Charms all share an interesting memory from childhood... No, it's not of being abducted by aliens, but of being inspired to draw by insane 80's kids' TV show host Commander Mark! Foreshortening! We also have a "Question from the Weird Beard" for Charms, which may or may not take a dark turn, you'll have to listen in to find out how it ends! Cliffhanger! Thank you for listening, and as always, Stay Alive!!!

The more things change, the more they stay the same, right? We here at Candy Teeth Radio tend to believe this is true, but we also know that sometimes when things change, everything goes bananas! In this newest episode we discuss some of this craziness as it applies to the realms of art and technology! Listen in as we delve into how these worlds intersect. We talk about 3D printing, computer modeling, and virtual reality, and also how these technologies helped to create the infamous Ivan the Gorilla statue. And we have a clip of friend of the show and VR beta tester Isaiah Coberly explaining the ins and outs of virtual reality, and where he thinks it will be taking us in the future. So pile into the Delorean with us and blaze a trail to tomorrow! The future is here today! And of course, as always, thanks for listening, and Stay Alive! Candy Teeth!!!
What is going on? What the heck are all those people doing running around with flashlights in the middle of the night? Are they catburglars, or UFO hunters, or what? Well, if you live in Tacoma, they are probably looking for Monkey Balls! "Monkeyshines" is an annual tradition here in Tacoma where an army of glassblowers stage a sort of Easter Egg hunt to celebrate the Chinese New Year. And instead of Easter Eggs, they hide blown glass orbs adorned with the animal of the current year - Monkey Balls! This year's animal is the Rooster, and our very own Jeremy Gregory joined the secret team of hiders to get the inside scoop. And as always, Jeremy recorded everything! Tune in to our running commentary as we listen to the recording, and maybe even drop a few hints on where to look for your very own Monkey Balls! But if you go, be sure to be on the lookout for UFO's! Happy hunting, and as always, STAY ALIVE!!!
