41chek: electric mayhem doctor teeth and electric g doctor teeth and electric mayhem
42denise: doctor that's right
43wlsadh:
44chek: and the concept was like we were going to be like the ^Muppets we were going to like go on adventures and make friends and put on shows and help people out so that's wh- kind of what we did and so this web site is a place for artists and musicians and anyone to go and make a profile
45denise: utsit the name of your posse
46chek: and
47chek: what's that
48denise: e mayhem was like a posse
49chek: pretty much yeah it's a group rike now it's you know it's kind of thin at time it used to be like fifteen strong now it's like it's like me and ^Dave and like people we just drag in to help us as we go
50chek: %um when we're oo- for a year straight we put on a variety show at do you know what we're in Oakland where the ^Beehive ^Theater was it's not anymore but you know where ^McDonald's is in ^Oakland like d- uh- down on Pick campus

61wlsadh: t pass
62denise: ah so good
63chek: and then it was a a coffee shop slash bar
64denise: it was all it was at the same time as i- those things

67chek: really?
68denise: yeah
69wlsadh: above the bar

74chek: really
75chek: weird
76chek: weird
77chek: %ah ahnuhname uh waet
78denise: used to hold ceremonies
79chek: but anyway so we put on these shows they're like variety show like vaudeville and stuff variety shows we're like
80chek: eighteen acts like i- in in a like a three hour time period
81chek: and yeah they were fun like you know they were just like it was almost like we were trying to put on like
82wlsadh:
83denise: talent show
84chek: a ^Saturday ^Night ^Live kind of thing where like cause there'd be u. k. skits in between the acts being performed and
85denise: yeah
86chek: %um it was it was a lot fun it was a lot of hard work and you know not much reward just by dzus enjoying it and seeing people have a good time that was d really the only reward for doing it
87chek: so like when we were doing that we were more ike a a viable entity now we pretty much are just strong with this web site which gets h couple thousand hits i'd um a month just by rantn the only really way you know about it is like word of mouth it's kind of advertizing n
88chek: we've recently now started putting out a weekly publication that you could pick up you know n places where you can kind of get cool stuff it;s just like a a one page scunu flyer that's got +excuse me ek it'll have two works of art from a from the web site two %um like poems or a just writing samples
89chek: from the web site and then the back will be like
90chek: *cause the the biggest thing now is people could post their events like if you're in a band that you're playing somewhere you could post it onto the web site and then every week if you sign up to thud web site you'll email you the events for the week
91chek: or you ds ek uk periodically go back and just check what seetz +and see what's going on in the next couple days it'll just show it there or you just pick up one of the white papers and it's got like the whole week for like stuff to do pretty much every day for the for the wole week
92chek: so it's a pretty good thing to s kind of have with you and just carry around so if you see +them hanging around somewheres pick one up
93chek: %um they say ee they say e. mayhem on them uneaze have a little picture on them and they'll have the date and on the back of it will be z a bunch of listings of like shows and stuff and most of them are are all age shows z a some of them art t- twentyone up but u ee can always usually find stuff to do
