Episode 81 Pop Culture Thrift Store Paintings

Standard

The air might be bad and giving bloody noses, but it doesn’t stop Santa from taking a leak in downtown Salt Lake on the sidewalk!

December is our month of Cats! Cats with a ‘C‘ and Kats with a ‘K’! This week we were joined by local business owner and artist, Kat Martin. Kat gave us a history of how she started her own cleaning company when she was just 19! Kat’s Cleaning SLC  services the Salt Lake City area, and is ranked as the best cleaning company on Yelp! We can’t argue with that. We made sure to ask her about hoarders, what the grossest thing she’s ever cleaned, and of course what she won’t touch.

Always interesting to hear the people you think have their lives together are completely a mess at home! Kat also gave some tips for cleaning during the holiday season.

Now, if you don’t know Kat for her mad cleaning skills; you may know her from Salt Lake Comic Con, the Urban Flea Market, or the Downtown Salt Lake Farmers Market as Altered Landscapes. “Pop Culture on Thrift Store Art.” Kat has scoured the valley DI’s, Saver’s, and estate sales to find old paintings to add a bit of pop culture to. However, she does have enough paintings to last a while so please don’t drop them off on her porch… unless it is a commission piece, of course. Recently she got to present one of her paintings to John Barrowman! Whether your shtick is Dr. Who, Spider-man, Super Mario Brothers, Star Wars, or Rick and Morty Kat has or will make a piece to go with your fandom. Kat will Bob Ross the shit out of a painting for you. (More than it already has been, of course.) Kat loves working on other paintings such as portraits and her famous yearly Christmas cards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can find her work on her Etsy store, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Deviant Art, and Tumblr!

Note to self, if you high kick with Kat Martin and you want to document it, use Boomerang instead of trying to take a picture.

Congrats go out this week to our friends at Olio Skin and Beard Co. They opened up a meditation/yoga studio across from their shop in SugarHouse this week. Follow them on OLIO MIND for class schedules.

Episode 80 Art Activism, Gas Masks, and Poop.

Standard

You know it’s going to be a great episode when the guest starts out by saying they will gladly talk about how many times they poop and masturbate in a day. And when Chris tries his hand at an Irish accent. And when Jessica ruins the episode by talking about what we weren’t suppose to talk about.

This week we were honored to be joined by art activist and photographer, Cat Palmer! You may know her as the artist that re-created Leonardo’s Last Supper, but with amazing people in Utah. This past weekend you may recognize her “Go Home Trump” and “Dump Trump” installation from the Utah State Capitol pre Trump visit. Let’s help her make it viral by sharing and crediting her work!

Cat gave us insight to her inspirations, her love of gas masks, an upcoming project that she has been working to make happen, and of course, her rad mom!

Oh, and in case you were wondering, she doesn’t shoot landscapes.

Here is a list of some of her favorite locals:

Olio Skin and Beard Co.

Tin Angel

Frida’s Bistro

Zest Kitchen and Bar

Blind Dog

Two Bit Street Cafe

Water Witch Bar

Lake Effect

CM Ceramics

Jimmi Toro

Cat also let us know that she doesn’t attach her name with organizations, even though she is very active in the activist community. However, she is very passionate about Salt Lake Clean air. They have their Winter Solstice Salt Lake Clean Air Fundraiser on Dec. 17th

You can pick up Cats work on her website CATPALMER.com, at the Urban Arts Gallery, and the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

And a big thanks for James for letting us use his house!

Episode 71 How do YOU apply your oil?

Standard

This week for Episode 71 we took a field trip! We love when we get to go on site and visit our guests. Olio Skin Co. invited us into their new shop to record. They had their grand opening last weekend at 2157 E 2100 S in Sugar House. You can also find Aimee’s Home Cookin Spice Blends sharing a shop with Olio.

By the way, this episode is probably NSFW. Not that any of our episodes are, but this one was a slippery slope. Ha … see what we did there. Now you will have to listen to see what we mean. We loved sitting down with Jen and Derek of Olio and talking about their product line, what is coming up, bringing it other Utah’s own products into their shop, and of course their grand opening!

The plan for the future is to start offering cold press soap classes, meditation classes, perhaps a barbering day, and so on. Make sure to submit your videos to Olio on Facebook and tag them on Instagram and show how YOU apply your Olio oil!

   

 

They also gave us a code to hand out which is good until November 1st for 25% off their products online at OlioSkin.com or in their store. THENEWUTAHPODCAST is your code.

EVENTS:

HALLOWEEN EXPO 13-15th At Southtowne Expo Center

Folk Hogan is at Piper Down on the 6th

Only 3 MORE Downtown Farmers Market dates..

And for the record, we know Ireland … is not British occupied!

Episode 70 Even Salt Lake Comic Con is lit… or something like that.

Standard

While Jeremy is enjoying some Disneyland magic…

Episode 70 Chris, Bre, and Jessica give a recap and share some interviews that The New Utah Podcast did this week at Salt Lake Comic Con with our new fancy mic!

From all the amazing cosplayers, the vendors, the panelist, and the celebrities. We took in everything! We asked people what the one thing that people had to do before they left Salt Lake Comic Con was and these were some of the answers that we got,

Utah artists Matt Page of E Pluribus MormonGo through the whole thing, it’s going to take a long time, so wear good shoes. The place is big.”

Utah Author, Johnny WorthenGo to a panel you have no interest in, to find out what you are missing. Stretch your interestsGet outside of your fandom

Mark Avo, Panelist and Comic Book writer for Salt City Strangers, “I like artist alley and meeting the artists. For most people I would say don’t miss out on the feeling of family…”

Author, MichaelBrent Collings, “urinate periodically cause doing it in costume is a real faux pas… drink lots of water… it is a physically draining thing you have to take care of yourself.”

Utah Author, Bob Defendi, “Use the bathroom, it’s a long drive…”

Father and Son Cos-players Dusty and Corbin, Corbin who is an amazing whistler: “definitely get a dragon… a little one.” Dusty, “get a dragon… we have tons of them.

Utah artists, Ben Byrd, “make sure you walk the entire floor, look at all the artists. Make sure you’re looking at all the tables,  you could miss something really cool…

Local wood knot artisan, Shawn Wilson with W.K. Wilson, “...must go down the dealer alley because there is some cool dang stuff here…”

The Truffle Cottage Blair, “come to the Truffle Cottage obviously… eat their favorite super hero or villian…” Jennie, “if you haven’t been by the Truffle Cottage it’s the one place you can get your sweetest piece of fandom…” AND from Blair “go and play Dungeons and Dragons like a cool person.”

Utah Author, David J West, “…i say take in as many of the people as you can.. all the freaks come out at night.” AHOY! (and we don’t think he got Jessica’s cosplay)

ABC 4 Utah camera man, Greg, “…come to comic con in a costume because that is the best part

Utah Artists, Heather Dixon, “… definitely get the candied nuts and take picture of your favorite cos-play because you never know when you’ll see them again

Cosplayer kid, Jake from State Farm, “get Pokemon stuff, cause Pokemon is lit...”

Cosplayers King Arthur and Patsy (which it was actually the DAD that was Patsy and daughter who was the King), “have fun and find what you want and seek it out…” (get it… find your grail…)

The Cosplay was unreal as always, we have an amazingly creative community! Here are some of the highlights …

Episode 63 Hard Cider in Utah

Standard

The New Utah Podcast was honored to be invited to record at Mountain West Cidery this week! It seems like it was just yesterday that Jen, co-owner, joined us for episode 18! This time we got Jeff, also an owner, and Jess their marketing guru!

First things first. Did you know that in Utah cider is classified as a wine? Yea, we didn’t either and it’s kind of dumb. The only way to change these silly laws is to get in with the legislative sessions like Jeff has been doing! If you are interested in helping, just reach out to them. Mountain West Cider is heavily involved in the community, which we love, and are currently wrapping up their second year of Gay Ruby for Utah Pride celebration. After we spoke to Jen last year they introduced Desolation to their line up, proceeds from bottle sells support the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. This bottling brings them to four; 7 Mile, Ruby, Desolation, and Cottonwood. They are working on a second release of Stillwater, which is their hard cider aged in High Whiskey barrels for 6 months! Yum! They are getting ready for their second annual 4th West Oktoberfest at the end of September, doing quarterly gallery strolls with local artists, an upcoming partnership with Subaru, and a third Thursday of the month exercise and cider night! They also book events at their space if you are interested.

Partnering again with Green Urban Lunch Box, look for their bottling this fall of their second edition mash up of apples! You can find them on ALL the social media’s; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and now SnapChat!

EVENTS:

Hang on to your beards!! Our friends from Olio Skin and Beard Co. are presenting this years 4th Annual Beard and mustache competition at Snowbird to kick of Oktoberfest!

Craft Lake City will be in full swing at the Gallivan Center this weekend.
