    Jeff Mach: Creator of The Steampunk World’s Fair

    in Radio

    There’s nothing ordinary about Steampunk. It’s a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. It may also incorporate additional elements from the genres of fantasy, horror, historical fiction, alternate history, or other branches of speculative fiction, making it often a hybrid genre. And Jeff Mach, the creator of the world’s largest Steampunk World’s Fair, has put all of this together into one huge event that attracts people of all ages on May 13-15. Like all events, there is food, vendors, and entertainment, but definitely not your typical offerings. For example, the Absinthe Party has me curious. According to Jeff, Steampunk is “a bunch of stuff people do that’s vaguely inspired by mad science in a world that bears some sort of resemblance to the Victorian era.” I anticipate seeing costumes with mechanical workings, ornate engraving, and lots of goggles. And as far as the dress code goes, at The Steampunk World’s Fair, you are welcome to wear whatever you want (as long as it won’t get you arrested for indecent exposure). What we now call Steampunk has existed in some manner for quite a long time; but it’s only recently that Steampunk’s started coming together as some kind of coherent social phenomenon. Jeff’s heart was captured at thirteen by The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He was fascinated by how you could change the ordinary world of a movie theatre and create a strange, wonderful new home for people whose interests were outside the norm. He’s dedicated his life to creating those places. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

    The View Up Here - Electoral Reform with Fair Vote Canada

    in Politics

    The Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister of Democratic Reform Maryam Monsef have pledged that Election 42 will be the last using the "First Past The Post" system. What their plan is has yet to be revealed to the Canadian public. But the discussion is very lively about what a new electoral system should look like for Canada outside the House.


    Over 90 countries, including 85% of OECD members, use some form of Proportional Representation. The old rhetoric of "every vote counts" is simply not true in a FPTP electoral system. Since World War I, Canada has had 17 "majority governments" based on seat count. Only four of those had an actual majority of the popular vote. Canadians have in reality been electing minority governments most of the time, based on vote totals. The Liberal government has publicly decried "We will make every vote count". Do Canadians really think their votes translated into an accurate seat count? On October 19, it took 37,728 votes to elect one Liberal MP. It took 602,755 votes to elect one Green MP. Nearly 17.6 million votes were cast, yet the overwhelming Liberal majority was delivered with just 4.6 million of them.


    Kelly Carmichael, Executive Director of Fair Vote Canada, joins us to examine what is and what needs to be for Election 43. Proportional Representation delivers equal and effective votes, better environmental performance, better gender equality and better policy development and implementation, based on historical data.

    Keep them Coming Back - Marketing to the Art Fair Patron

    in Business

    The interested parties have come to your party: that Art Festival you have been planning and marketing for 364 days. How do you make sure they love the show, bring their friends, buy art, spread the word about what they found there and can't wait for next year?


    Sharon McAllister, Executive Director of ArtFest Fort Myers (FL) and Jenny Wright, Festival Director of The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival (TX) join the conversation and share their best tips for building a memorable experience for their patrons.


    We'll learn about their decisions on:



    public relations
    marketing
    community relations
    sponsor building
    artist relationships
    plus what works and even more interestingly what they've done that doesn't work!


    Connie Mettler presents results from her 2014 Best Art Fair Survey of art fair buyers where she gathered data about what makes them come to a festival and why ... plus ... why there are formerly favorite shows that they no longer attend.


    Both of these events were chosen as Top 50 Events in the survey.

    The media (fair or not)?

    in Radio

    Do you trust the media to report the news accurately and fair.  Some people have a problem with watching the news because they feel like its not being reported fairly.  What makes a good news story?  Everytime there is a break out in the black communities, the news have a camera crew there so fast to report it however, on the flip side of things, when there is a breakout in the white communities people feel as if its swept under the rug and kept quiet only getting minimum.  How much affect does the media have on keeping negative stereotypical outlooks on the black communities.  There is news that happes around us that we never have a clue about because it doesn't get reported.  Did you know according to the Statisics under President Obama's Administrations in the last 2 years 49% of people killed by police were white, 30% were black. But this is not what is being reported on the news.  This shows an unbalance and unfairness to the stories being reported. Some people feel this is what keeps the black communities oppressed, fighting, angry, bitter, and a sense of worthlessness because some people feel that police are only out here killing black people when in fact the percentage number shows that there are more whites that have been killed but why haven't we heard of these reporting Let's talk about this tonight on the K Smilez show with K Smilez and Angie B.
