Episode 7 of Truckerspeed in 3D

Check out episode 7 of our public access TV show (in Portland) where I’m joined by my friend Jon Hurst. We talk about beer, otolaryngologist dancing, abortion show some music videos and even give shout outs…to a lady! Filmed in our greenscreen basement studio in Southeast Portland.

Episode 4 of Truckerspeed in 3D

Get prepared for one of the best episodes of TS3D to date. Lots of unusual bits in this one, infection including a couple of guests, a segment on puppy breath, and some bitchin reprojection footage from a concert we organized in January.

  1. The first guest is Matt Huiskamp of the PJ. Featured song: “Pink Sofa” by Celilo
  2. The first video is episode 23 of the Penny Jam, Grey Anne at Portland Store Fixtures. That place is pretty cool.
  3. Stephanie I are sitting in front of a greenscreen that I photographed at the Metro East Station, though we’re in my basement greenscreen studio. So META!
  4. Steph and Matt are in a band called Bad Side of Holland, which brings us to the second video of the show “Once Knew a Boy,” recorded at the Mt. Tabor Legacy.
  5. Featured song: “Pinata” off of Celilo’s awesome new album, Bending Mirrors.
  6. The third video is one of my favorite up-and-coming Portland bands, The Ascetic Junkies performing “Kansas Road Trip.” This was our first night of live projecting, there are actually 2 projectors, one isn’t in frame.
  7. Featured song: “Stop Stalling” by Derby.
  8. I flex my journalism degree with a shocking TV exposé on Puppy Breath. It starts at the 20:00 mark.
  9. The final song is by “Trying” by Grey Anne (thanks for the correction Anne), also filmed at the Mt. Tabor Legacy.
