Vitamin Circus Variety Show - Episode 1 from Richard Colado on Vimeo.
How did you come up with the idea for the vitamin circus variety show?
I got stuck on watching clips of the Dean Martin SHow on youtube and thought "that looks like fun." So I called up Mark Hubbard to see if he would help me film and edit a variety show. He said yes.
Who is all involved in vitamin circus variety show?
Mark and I put it together. But I would have to say that other people are involved to, just not in a direct way. Nearly everyone I talk to about the show has a good idea for it, like an idea for a segment or a skit or interview or something, whatever.
Is vitamin circus a blog or a video show or a blog that has a video show?
Its like a blog that has a video show, but I'm pretty sparatic about both. Sometimes I feel like writing something, sometimes I feel like making a video. I hope I can keep it up for a while because its pretty fun and opens me up a bit, lets my guard down. I like to be vulnerable, emotionally vulnerable... that sound stupid but I mean well.
Was making the video time consuming and how often do you think we will see them?
Like I said it is a bit sparatic. I really don't want to think about the show that much at all, I just want to have fun doing it. So someone has an idea I'll say "yeah that sounds good, lets film it" and if it works out then cool, if not then whatever, we'll film something else. But if it ever seems like it would take a lot of time to do or involves a lot of planning etc, I will probably do something else. I'm already involved in a bunch of other things that require planning and stuff. I just want to have fun and film it. Doing whatever.
Would you say your blog has a goal or are you going to take is one day at a time?
One day at a time seems more my frame of mind in the present. I get crazy when I think to much about the future and what could happen or if I'm wasting my time or if I'm going to fail. I used to get all wonky like that. Worrying about shit that isn't even real. I still do run into it from time to time, but much less of late and I'm trying to be rid of it all together. Just produce things and enrich life and move on. Like the universe and stuff.
I believe in your first post, which happen to be on valentines day, you said you want it to be like a umbrella for all your projects, how many projects are you currently involved in?
Five, if you don't count raising a kid and being married.
1)clone: a collaboration with Ben Cooper. We're making a concept album that tells a fictitious story of a human clone. We're half way done.
2)rickoLus: This is me and all the music inbetween. At the momment I'm collecting idea's for my next album.
3)Richard Love and The Mix Tape CLub: A band I got together to play live an album of pop songs I wrote and recorded last year.
4)The Vitamin Circus Variety Show: ...yeah.
5) Mothers Basement: An assignment based recording and music project between Jeremiah Johnson, Ben Cooper and I. We havent done a new assignment in a year or so, but it's still there.
