    in Entertainment

    The King of DC Media (KODCM), Willam Powell, welcomes actor extraordinaire Adiyb Muhammad, who the KODCM has dubbed "The Theater Warrior", back to the Inside Acting Radio Show to talk about his white hot career.


    Read just a sliver of what he's been doing, in his own words:


    As a working actor,yes I am performing in "Love Is Still Blind" May 2nd/ Dry Bones June 27th and The Piano Lesson July 31st & August 1st stage plays locally in the DMV. By Play wrights Damon Sanders/Ivy Hawkins and August Wilson. I feel truly blessed because as an actor when I read these parts they all offered different and unique opportunities to create very different characters. I love film but my first love is truly theater it makes you delve deep into your skills on a very in-depth level. No retakes, no editing just raw unadulterated work. Memorization of lines a must and character development an absolute necessity and intense commitment to be successful. 10 years and counting!!! I LOVE THIS BUSINESS, I"LL BE IN IT TILL I'M LAYED TO REST! Thank you heavenly father for allowing me to discover this part of me!!! JUST A THOUGHT!!!

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 24 (The Wolverine on Crack Edition)

    in Entertainment

    How much would it weird you out if you had a pet that made the sound we attribute to them? Like a cat that literally goes "meow" or a dog that says "bark" or "woof" and stuff? Or a lizard that goes...


    What the hell do lizards say? Do they hiss or something, like alligators? Do they even make sound? I've never known a lizard well enough to hear what the little dude has to say. I'm kinda sad about that now.


    This show will not be about lizards or animal sounds. Probably. Could be, but it's not terribly likely. What will it be about? Hell if I know. We'll see when we go live.


    I hope you'll join me for the ride. Should be fun.

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 22 (The Listener Q&A Edition)

    in Entertainment

    How cool would it be to be Spider-Man? To do whatever a spider can? I wonder how literal that is? I mean, is dude ever trying to squeeze out a deuce and suddenly coat his toilet bowl with gross ass webbing? Would webbing clog up one's toilet? How the hell would you explain that to a plumber? 


    This episode will not be about the potential perils of pooping as Spider-Man. It very well may be about the hidden subculture of superhero plumbers, though. 


    Probably not. No telling what it'll be about, to be honest. That's what makes it fun. I hope you'll join me.

    The Late Late Shift with Steve - Episode 23 (The Self Incriminating Edition)

    in Entertainment

    These shows rarely have a topic or theme set up beforehand, but this one will be an exception. I was asked a question loosely related to Insane Clown Posse for my last episode, the Listener Q&A one, and intended to tell a sordid loosely ICP related tale. I ran out of time, though, as the story is too good to skim over. 


    So I won't. It's getting its own episode, and a special weekend one, at that. It involves misdemeanor crime, Juggalos and comics, among other things. I hope I can do it justice in telling it, as it's one of my favorite stories in my head.


    So yeah, join me as I potentially incriminate the crap out of myself and tell my tale. Should be fun stuff.

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 21 (The Spidey's a Cracker Edition)

    in Entertainment

    If ghosts are real, I wonder what they do with all that free time? Can they go other places? Like, do they have to haunt their specific house or can they go to Vegas and catch a show? Or is it like Beetlejuice where they're tied to one specific place and that's it? Can they see other ghosts, maybe hang out in the Netherworld and play cards with Mark Twain or something? Or is it really as simple as, "Well, I'm just gonna hang out in here for all eternity. Yippee. Hooray. I hope the new people who live here like Metallica."



    This episode will not be about ghosts. Or maybe it will. Who really knows? I definitely don't, and I'm the host. That means you, the listener, should pretty much expect anything to go down. Kinda fun, ain't it?



    I like to think so, and I hope you agree. Join me, won't you?

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 20 (The General Lee Edition)

    in Entertainment

    My dreams are dead. 


    Why do I say that? Because my biggest dream was always to own a record store, like Empire Records. And one corner would have a soundproof booth from which a live radio broadcast would be happening. People could tune in to badass tunes and then come down to the store and make a request whilst buying badass tunes. I envisioned this dream so thoroughly that I even drew up floorplans and worked up how much it would cost and stuff.


    Now? Record stores are as archaic as an Atari 2600. Cute, still out there, but pretty much only a piece of a shell of what they were. Terrestrial radio? So watered down and corporate and devoid of any semblance of life that it's frankly depressing, not to mention also archaic within the modern landscape. 


    Is that what this show will be about? Nope. No clue what it'll be about. But I bet it'll be fun. Join me and find out.

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 19 (The Guns Suck Edition)

    in Entertainment

    I always wanted a pet raccoon. They just seem so cool, you know? They're perpetually wearing pimp suits and superhero style domino masks, all washing their food before they eat it and doing pseudo human stuff. Raccoons just seem like they know what's going on, you know? Like they've got the inside line on what's up.


    This podcast is not going to be about raccoons. Probably. Hell, it could be. I sincerely doubt it, though, because I don't so much plan ahead with these things. The Late Late Shift is literally my stream of consciousness for a half hour. Sometimes mildly controversial, sometimes informative, sometimes simply conversational, the one thing I always try to make it is entertaining with maybe a piece of funny here and there. Do I succeed? Listen to it and find out, dig?


    Chester. That's what my pet raccoon's name would be. Chester the Raccoon. Esquire.
