A few months back I acted in a sixty-second horror short to be submitted to 60 Seconds To Die: an anthology sixty sixty-second shorts directed by sixty established as well as up and coming independent horror filmmakers from across the globe. Sixty Sixty Sixty. Shane Ryan wrote and directed the short I appear in. It was a pleasure to work with him. The film was produced by Tony Newton, known for Grindsploitation (2016), Virus of the Dead (2016) and Grindsploitation 2: The Lost Reels (2016). 60 Seconds to Die is set to make its US premiere at The Legless Corpse Film Festival in Somerville, Alabama April 22nd. Luckily for you, a teaser trailer has been released, and guess what—I’m in it. Let’s see if you can spot me. For updates on the 60 Seconds To Die, refer to the film’s Facebook page.

That’s right folks, Cate is doing stand-up comedy. When Craigslist adds turn life choice—for now at least. The thing is I think I’m funny, and modestly, always have. The real question is, do other people? So far, the hardest part is relating to the human race, you sick fucks. But I’m down for the challenge, and
the ride. My comedy caught theee Ken Boxer of Ken Boxer Live and I will now be performing pre-show comedy to warm up the audience. My set there has to be PG, so let the games begin. My first comedy tour is going to be titled, ‘The Worst Thing About People,” and my first line of the show will be, “The worst thing about people is everything,” at which point I will drop mic and walk off stage, perhaps after magicianing a blind walking cane out of my sleeve because it gives the blind man class.

“People living passionately with purpose,” is how I would describe The Golfer and Yogini Podcast. Wedded team Cevin [golfer] and Mallory [yogini] Doppman have just launched Episode 1 which takes the time to introduce the concept and the hosts that will be taking you through the lives of passionate professionals in future episode. Following Episode 1, each episode will feature a new guest from all walks of life and innumerable professions who are passionate about what they do. The Golfer and Yogini broadcast out of Santa Barbara, California, and did I mention I am the producer? Continue reading “Producing Podcasts: The Golfer & Yogini” »

Cate and Sam grace the cover of Battalion of Saint’s latest vinyl release. These new tunes will be extra special due to what is on the outside: us. That’s right, amazingly talented artist Lee Ellingson, whom Sam and I have formed a very creative bond with via the internet, rendered us in the commissioned artwork. Can you say punk rock?

Weekly podcaster and Santa Barbara local Patrick Melroy took a chance on the Unlicensed Professionals last week, allowing them in studio for a closer look at the madness, ours that is. Although solely audio, as most podcasts are, Samantha and I were definitely able to hold our ground, sounding everything from our childhood, horror movies, Santa Barbara dining [or lack thereof], the weekly vlog process, our viral videos, to meat drapes. I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty sure I dropped the N word a few times, but only to point out the few situations in which a white person like myself can say it and it neither be offensive nor toe stepping [says the white girl. Listen below for another slice of the Unlicensed Professional’s inner pie.

With all of the emojis making up for text typing communications inability of conveying emotion and feeling, important conversation cues and clues, not to mention human interaction in general, the desire to put a face to a name is hotter than ever. Fuck putting a name to a face, that’s what Facebook is for. Additionally, as if we were no longer cutting conversation with other humans to a minimum, texting less and less grammatically correct sentences, until there are no sentences, yet somehow five identical sentence completing punctuations. Despite punctuations in all numbers and forms, sarcasm can rarely be identified, and thus feeling or emotion blurred allows for unnecessary human idiotic assumption and consequent quarrels. The emoticon. The emoji—six basic emotions covered plus more, I still find the need to combine numerous in attempt to convey my intangible insides. Perhaps the following descriptive faces can aid in the research necessary to create the next wave of emojis, because the allowance of race options doesn’t count as necessary nor forward thinking in my book.

One would think many of us know what happens when we assume, but if that were true, there would be much less of it occurring. Perhaps it is this assumption that stampedes the age old simplistic concept of question asking.

Let’s Nazercise, as in “Let’s Jazzercise,” but focus on our arms and legs in the traditional military marching fashion. Background music is Westerwald Lied, a well know German military song. A good 2 to 3 hours were devoted to constructing our costumes, composed of tape, bits of cut up t-shirts, sharpie, lingerie, and tinfoil. We’re very green over in the UnPros studio. Every time I cut up a t-shirt, I save the scraps for later use in such things as Nazi garb. Note Samantha’s hand made SS and medals build from pink duck tape and my horrendous artistry atop silver duck tape. Oh and that’s a transparent blue water gun in Sam’s mouth, thank heaven for black and white footage. If you need more explaining in regard to this week’s topic, you are obviously watching the wrong show. My mind is what it is and it does what it does with Sam.

Being a girl has its perks: The Vagina, perhaps you’ve heard of it. In 2015 there is still much inequality. I however am not concerned with job and educational imbalances in opportunity and pay, nor do I stand behind affirmative action. A gender unbiased (or blind if necessary) hiring or admission based on skills, achievements, job history, academics, etc. is something I rally more for than making things “even” and then maybe worrying about working on the act of or human ability of not considering gender at all when filling those positions or granting opportunities. There are many out-dated stereotypes, that don’t even translate to funny jokes, and I love funny jokes. If we are going to make fun of women, can we at least write some new material that may or may not be true but is at least considered comedy? Yes, women have boobs Continue reading “Why I Need Feminism” »
