87 - It's a Show about Anything

EPeople keep asking me what the podcast is ABOUT? In truth there are a lot of answers to that. There’s rants on tv and film, bitch-sessions about things in our society we do or don’t like, sometimes we get a bit political and we are always making fun of something. To say we like to tangent from each topic would be a gross understatement. We also have lots of guests and yes they are mostly artists, musicians, actors, singers, writers, dancers, producers and the occasional small business person and always someone whom you would otherwise never hear, see or get a chance enjoy. In short we strive to be the source for a peak into the Unknown Artist. After that, Coop&Myan are living characters themselves, they are the heart and soul in the fabric that makes up the body of Unofficial. How do we condense that and package it into the quintessential “Log Line?” It’s a Show about Anything. Today’s Anything happens to start out with maybe the least important thing ever created… the meme-video of Trump as Colin Firth on a mass-murdering-rampage of political/media opponents in a scene reappropriated from the movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle. What could be more pointless. Thankfully Coop&Myan break down just how bizarre our society is as this example of fictionalized, glorified slaughter by an unwavering, narcissistic, wannabe dictator-in-chief, truly illustrates a major series of modern problems we are all forced to relate to, mostly perpetuated by our Hollywood themed, gun-loving, corporate-corrupted, pay-to-play political, drug-fueled American Empire. And of course, we consumers who eat it up with our minimum wage dollars. We have the craziest show on Earth and every one of us has a front row seat right in our pockets. It’s sick. And we love/hate it. As long as that’s the situation our human condition, collectively finds us in, Unofficial will try to stare deeply into the black mirror and disect what we can as best we can, while still having as much fun as possible. So subscribe to Unofficial and tell your friends because Coop&Myan are carving their inimitable niche and need your support to continue to grow.It's a Show about Anything

Episode 86 - Chema Prods The Bear

EI think it’s safe to say that when you start a podcast and interview people every week you know that a personal story will reveal inner truths that may not be your average topic of conversation. That’s why we do it, frankly and this week our friend Chema did not disappoint. What goes on in the mind of an intelligent, capable man when he marries an even more capable woman? Is standing by your woman enough? Are you the kind of husband who needs to accomplish more? Are you the kind of wife who can be content with a husband who supports you but doesn’t have his own clearly defined goals? Of course it differs from person to person, couple to couple but we all have some crossover in our individual personality spectrums so it will definitely be easy to relate to some aspects of Chema’s archetypal, hero’s journey no matter where you find yourself. Chema addresses having-it-all at the age of 26 but also dealing with the potential for divorce and bankruptcy by 29. Can the Landmark Forum be the key to his new definition of “success?” Is there a chance for a future with Lisa, his wife if all the patterns of unhappiness together seem to be on a never-ending cycle? Throw in a paradigm-shift of how he digests world-politics through narrative-driven mainstream media, transforming from a write-in voter for Bernie Sanders to a die-hard Ben Shapiro fan and you have a 30 year old husband/father/man who is forced to look at the world in a completely new way, rediscover himself and grow into the man he never knew he needed to be. It’s crazy. But we’re humans, so don’t act so surprised. Coop&Myan are transitioning themselves as Unofficial changes locations and aggressively searches for it's core-audience. Is having unique, original content enough? Do the boys need to devote every free moment to promoting on social media and change their format from a Junk-drawer to a surgical scalpel in order to survive the vast competition in the Podcast Universe? Time will tell so keep listening and tell your friends. And a huge thank you to our devoted fans and our growing family of Unofficial guests. It literally couldn’t be done without you all.

Episode 85 - Franky Football and Legal PED's

EIt’s true, sometimes good things do come in small packages so I’m going to be positive about this week’s first show being a 10 minute shorty… That being said who wants to talk FOOTBALL??!! No not soccer…FOOTBALL!! American football is so aggressive and militarily oriented it literally stole it’s name from the most popular sport on the planet. Brilliant PR move and somewhat impressive in a conquering/colonialism sort of way. Bullet passes, long bombs…you get the idea.(Thanks George) Hey if you think about it, the Patriot’s 2007 Spygate scandal was just simple reconnoissance. That’s allowed in battle, right? Let’s be honest, the term “war-crime” is a bit redundant. In all competition some dishonesty is unavoidable, tack on the perceived importance of glory, legacy and billions in profits and you can kinda understand why cheating is never going away. Remember when the NFL was a non-profit organization? Yeah, that happened. Add Frank Gore passing 15,000 yards rushing, Myan’s theory that steroids should be allowed but regulated and Robert Kraft's infamous handy from an asian stroke-jocky, and we can conclude...American football truly has it all. Check out Unofficial's guest episode (#86) later this week and get a very unique peak into one man’s journey from married bliss with a highly accomplished, once teenaged restaurant owner to an uncharted realm of self discovery that lands him in a potential separation but a new professional path, trying to help others discover their own strength and individualism.

Episode 84 - Unofficial Season 2 - Studio City

EWe did it! We friggin’ did it. Coop&Myan have been talking about their eventual move to a larger studio space for months and just like our visionboards depict, it is glorious. And what better place to start your own weekly broadcast but the infamous, Hollywood borough, Studio City. Yeah I’m sure it’s technically not a borough but fuck it, ART!! We thought it only made sense in honor of our new beginnings that we share it with our most loyal friend of the show…The strapping, leading man himself, Ben Gavin. And his new best friend the inherently loyal pupper, Patrick Mills, aka Patty “melt” Millstein the third esquire. (Only Myan calls him that) So if you can’t make it a week without bashing our clown-president, a day without insight on a subject you thought didn’t need more discussion or an hour without drinks, weed or snacks, then you definitely want to check out Unofficial’s new format and experience a podcast truly dedicated to the moment. Here’s to another year of kickass, inimitable podcastery. Thanks to everybody who has stuck with us this far and to those knew friends who are just around the corner. Coop&Myan

Episode 83 - Cristyne Lawson, The Original Black Swan

EIf you’re a dancer, the names Ruth St. Denis, Doris Humphrey and Martha Graham all have deep significance in the development of modern dance in the early to mid part of the 20th century. Even professional dancers today know the history these three masters helped cultivate. Imagine beginning your dance training as a child with Ruth St. Denis, navigating cultural racism while performing with Doris Humphrey and ultimately traveling the world dancing for the great Martha Graham. A name even today’s non-dancers recognize. Our guest today did exactly that. Cristyne Lawson, now 84 years young visits Unofficial and tells her story of beginning her professional dance career at the age of 6 in Santa Monica California, her time at “the old” Juilliard on 125th street and Riverside, her love for everything “Miles” and her auspicious beginnings at the originally named “Colored” Methodist Episcopal Church, (Now Christian Methodist) the recently dubbed Cultural Monument, Santa Monica’s first black Church built before 1900. This has to be one of our favorite episodes, as Myan’s surrogate grandmother spills the beans on what it was like to be a professional, black, female dancer in the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. A story so rare as few found success under similar circumstances at that time in our nation’s segregated history. I love Cristyne and hope she had a great time reliving some of her fondest memories from the most special time in her life. Coop&Myan were honored to have her on the show and will cherish this very special episode and the poignant glimpse into Cristyne’s inimitable journey.

Episode 82 - Super Girl, Greta Thunberg vs. Super Turd, Donald Trump

EIf you thought that geranium you made out of a 2 liter bottle of Schweppes in 2nd grade made you an environmentalist then definitely don’t follow Greta Thunberg because this young lady is taking ocean voyages to avoid air travel to help diminish her unavoidable carbon footprint. That is sustainability. She also coaxed her mom off of the most efficient form of long distance travel as the woman was kicking ass in her professional opera career. I was already scared of having kids for the sheer level of responsibility and now I’ve got to worry about them making me a better person? Love really is all about sacrifice. Will Trump be impeached? What does it mean to be “impeached?” If you’re impeached are you no longer president? Turns out an impeachment is just a formal accusation of a crime. The House of Representatives impeaches lets say...a president, but then it’s up to the Senate to hold the trial. If the Senate doesn’t vote two thirds majority to convict on the articles of impeachment set forth by the House of Representatives, then the president would simply be acquitted and remain in office. Just like Bill Clinton was acquitted of his impeachment articles, Perjury and obstruction of justice after lying about his sexual relations with that woman…Monica Lewinsky. So to be clear, yes Bill clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives but he was NOT convicted after his trial in the Senate. So he was never removed from office. He finished his remaining two years of his second term and then stole all the “W’s” from every Dell keyboard before leaving the White House. That’s why Al Gore was never president. Also the whole Florida/Supreme Court heist thing. Can we impeach Florida for “obstruction of justice?" Unofficial is really going off the rails here on a weekly basis. If you’re sick and tired of podcasts with deliberate focus and that are always staying on topic, then you need to check in with Coop&Myan at least twice a week. We’ve even started making our release schedule random, you don’t know what day you’re going to get your dose of random, erratic, arguably superfluous insight. But, we *guarantee, If you listen long enough, you might even learn something. *not a guarantee

Episode 81 - The One With Myan's Mom

EYeah I guess you can kinda judge this one by the cover. Would you be right though? Is this the episode where Myan’s mom comes on the show and bakes a bunch of cookies? Is she going to tell the story about the time Myan’s pants ripped in the middle of the junior high school recital? Maybe the one about the multitude of hyperdimensional realities existing simultaneously throughout an infinite multi-verse though completely invisible to almost every human that has ever existed because we were designed by an elite alien oligarchy who created mankind as a slave-race as a way of cultivating an organic, sustainable, planet-sized energy generator for our galactic overlords to remotely feed from the frequency of our collective, emotional fear-center energy for a trillion years? Oooh let’s hope it’s the cookies.

Episode 80 - "Sorry, Hollywood." - Grace Mumm

EWhen was the last time you had a baklava croissant? Yeah, me neither! Ok, added to planner. Honestly, how much do we love baked goods? Pastries, danish, turnovers, beignets, financiers? Doughnuts? (that’s a weird word) Do you love them enough to leave the profession you’ve had your sights on since you were a kid? A career you were actively successful in? A passion millions of people would die for and even devote their lives to achieving but never attain?? If so you are among a very elite class of artists along with our very charming guest today, Grace Mumm. Originally from Iowa and only in LA for about 6 months at the time, 20-year-old Grace had found industry representation, plenty of auditions and was actually working as a professional actor. Dream come true, right? Well not so fast, Tinsel Town…here comes Gjusta. Enamored with LA’s premier bakery, the Venice juggernaut, Gjusta, Grace asked for an application and the rest as they say is history. Almost a year and a half later Grace is a professional baker at one of LA’s finest executors of top-tier scones and sour doughs, is on track for a New York stage with Chef Ignacio Mattos, has "the industry” in her rearview mirror...and she couldn’t be happier. Her commercial agent, not so much. Coop&Myan do a pretty decent job of keeping Grace off track but in the end we cover her junior year in Germany, the artificial nature of our school system, Chinese doughnuts, the Chicken sandwich wars, the magic of Figs, the demise of Boston Market and even Shark Tank. Yes, Shark Tank. So check out episode 80 of Unofficial for yet another peek inside an LA artist’s life you would otherwise never know. Everybody is interesting and they all have a story. Next week Myan’s mom drops by for the most embarrassing episode a podcast host can hope to endure. Transparency is a bitch.

Episode 79 - Darth Hammertime the Cyborg

EWhen you’re a kid sometimes you think the future will be this crazy, robot infested tech-scape with eye-scanners and personally-targeted advertising like in Minority Report. And then you get a little older and the world still seems a little backwater and pedestrian. But another decade goes by and you find yourself lusting after electric cars with motors that make internal combustion look like an Atari 2600 and before you know it, you’re interviewing a Cyborg on your podcast. A goddamn Cyborg. Meet Eric Michael Johnson, Unofficial’s first cybernetic lifeform guest. The thirteen inches of fused-steel straightening his otherwise Lombard-esque spinal column makes him more machine than man. Alright he’s still mostly man. Interesting guy too, really funny and he actually experienced a four inch growth spurt in only 8 hours. And for only $260,000. A bargain by today’s cosmetic surgery standards and as a bonus, the 8 hour spinal fusion surgery probably saved his life. A literal silver lining. And of course decent health insurance played a small role. #universalhealthcare. As a kid he also had lordosis and asthma. Add a comically stiff, full back brace his senior year of high school and you have yourself some legit fodder for a decent episode description. Eric lived in 46 states and 13 countries, born on an Airforce base in South Dakota and he makes his own movies. His very first, "White and Nerdy - Michigan Tech Edition” a parody of Weird Al Yankovic’s “White and Nerdy” is still on his Youtube channel, "Darth Hammertime" and has almost 50k views. This guy is just a fun dude to be around, what a cool guest. Oh and he loves 30 Rock, he’s definitely coming back. Coop&Myan have the coolest job in our Universe, Unofficial is a dream come true and this first year has been like 87% joy. That’s a lot. With a new studio on the Horizon and a real push to be the number one source for exposing the bottomless well of unknown talent in Hollywood, Unofficial is poised on the precipice of unbridled, inimitable success. What does that mean? We really don’t know. But it’s all about the journey, right? Right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-2VqIhvKQk

Episode 78 - Undercover Idiot

EHow is it that someone like Bernie Sanders can spend his entire career always championing the people while virtually making no political mistakes that can be clearly illuminated for their grave miscalculation yet Joe Biden can be relied upon to continually misstep, fumble and fail yet be named the front runner? But is Joe Biden really the front runner? Are we all so weak of character that simple name recognition is enough or is it possible that he's not really in the lead but the media are simply reading their scripts so that we think he is. Can you see through the smokescreen of modern media propaganda? If you can then you are most likely a proud, card-carrying Bernie bro. Is socialism dangerous to American capitalism and democracy as some would have us believe? Doesn't America have Medicare, a vast military system, public schools, public library's, tax payer and government funded fire and police departments, unemployment payments and "Social" security? Is it not safe to say that in addition to privately held corporations and wealth we are also a nation rife with social programs. Is that bad? Cooper is on a tear this week as he questions the future of socialism in America, calls out "fuck boys" for their bullshit and speculates on the lack of apropos assassination. Why are the good ones taken away while the bad ones are here to stay? He's also predicting a best actor Oscar win for Joaquin phoenix for his up-and-coming portrayal of The Joker, which won the golden lion award last month at the Venice film festival. Also Myan shares his theory on why America is the worlds leader in the now grotesquely common practice of mass shootings. It's not pretty and it's not going away so we might as well address the evidence all around us. Unofficial. Coop&Myan. It's like vitamins for your mind.

A goddamn Cyborg. Meet Eric Michael Johnson, Unofficial’s first cybernetic lifeform guest. The thirteen inches of fused-steel straightening his otherwise Lombard-esque spinal column makes him more machine than man. Alright he’s still mostly man. Interesting guy too, really funny and he actually experienced a four inch growth spurt in only 8 hours. And for only $260,000. A bargain by today’s cosmetic surgery standards and as a bonus, the 8 hour spinal fusion surgery probably saved his life. A literal silver lining. And of course decent health insurance played a small role. #universalhealthcare. As a kid he also had lordosis and asthma. Add a comically stiff, full back brace his senior year of high school and you have yourself some legit fodder for a decent episode description. Eric lived in 46 states and 13 countries, born on an Airforce base in South Dakota and he makes his own movies. His very first, "White and Nerdy - Michigan Tech Edition” a parody of Weird Al Yankovic’s “White and Nerdy” is still on his Youtube channel, "Darth Hammertime" and has almost 50k views. This guy is just a fun dude to be around, what a cool guest. Oh and he loves 30 Rock, he’s definitely coming back. Coop&Myan have the coolest job in our Universe, Unofficial is a dream come true and this first year has been like 87% joy. That’s a lot. With a new studio on the Horizon and a real push to be the number one source for exposing the bottomless well of unknown talent in Hollywood, Unofficial is poised on the precipice of unbridled, inimitable success. What does that mean? We really don’t know. But it’s all about the journey, right? Right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-2VqIhvKQk

Episode 79 - Darth Hammertime the Cyborg

Episode 78 - Undercover Idiot

EHow is it that someone like Bernie Sanders can spend his entire career always championing the people while virtually making no political mistakes that can be clearly illuminated for their grave miscalculation yet Joe Biden can be relied upon to continually misstep, fumble and fail yet be named the front runner? But is Joe Biden really the front runner? Are we all so weak of character that simple name recognition is enough or is it possible that he's not really in the lead but the media are simply reading their scripts so that we think he is. Can you see through the smokescreen of modern media propaganda? If you can then you are most likely a proud, card-carrying Bernie bro. Is socialism dangerous to American capitalism and democracy as some would have us believe? Doesn't America have Medicare, a vast military system, public schools, public library's, tax payer and government funded fire and police departments, unemployment payments and "Social" security? Is it not safe to say that in addition to privately held corporations and wealth we are also a nation rife with social programs. Is that bad? Cooper is on a tear this week as he questions the future of socialism in America, calls out "fuck boys" for their bullshit and speculates on the lack of apropos assassination. Why are the good ones taken away while the bad ones are here to stay? He's also predicting a best actor Oscar win for Joaquin phoenix for his up-and-coming portrayal of The Joker, which won the golden lion award last month at the Venice film festival. Also Myan shares his theory on why America is the worlds leader in the now grotesquely common practice of mass shootings. It's not pretty and it's not going away so we might as well address the evidence all around us. Unofficial. Coop&Myan. It's like vitamins for your mind.
