Richard Roszko is meeting Dave Duchovny in Nashville! (Updated)

On December 8, I will be to meeting Dave Duchovny and his band in Nashville, thanks to Hilton Honors. The legendary Fox Mulder of the X-Files TV Series is presenting his successful singles, accompanied by his talented musicians on December 9. I will have lunch with David and will attend to his private dress rehearsal before the concert. David Duchovny recorded his first album, “Hell or High Water”, in 2015, receiving good critical reviews.

I’ve never watched the TV Series, Californication (2007-2014). However, it seems so interesting that I’ve done some reading about it. Californication tells the story of Hank Moody, a famous New York novelist who suffers a lack of inspiration because of the success of his latest bestseller (God Hates Us All). Later on, his novel is adapted to produce a movie. This event encourages Hank to move from New York to Los Angeles with his girlfriend, Karen. During the filming, Hank Moody realizes that the film adaptation is different than his book. The lifestyle in Los Angeles changes his views. It affects his relationship with Karen, falling into a spiral of sex and alcohol.

Californication is a story that keeps the protagonist on the edge of the abyss, with a huge desire to get the more out of life.

The X-Files, The Revival!

In this issue, will write about the X-Files seasons revivals. Fourteen years after finishing the season 9, and eight years after shooting the film (X-Files: I Want to Believe), the Fox network launched a new season of X-Files in 2016. This season is exciting. Mulder and Scully get back to action after the FBI closed the X-Files unit. In the first chapter, a conspiration theorist turns to Mulder and Scully concerned about a supposed government conspiracy. The Season 10 was launched in 2016 with six episodes.

On April 20, 2017, the Fox network officially announced that The X-Files would be returning for an eleventh season of ten episodes. This season started in January 2018. In the first episode, Scully is hospitalized because of a seizure. In this event, she has a vision of the future that involved her son with Mulder and herself. Then, someone called “The Smoking Man” reveals that some DNA impregnated Scully during an abduction.

This new stage of the X-Files is full of action!

David Duchovny and his Musical Career

I was reading about the David Duchovny musical’s career. He started in music four years before releasing his first album (Hell or High Water). David learned to play the guitar and then, he has built a musical career with discipline.

This story started when Brad Davidson, president of the Boston label ThinkSay Records, heard the first demos of David. He immediately noticed his influences: R.E.M, Bob Dylan, Flaming Lips, and Leonard Cohen. Weather is the backing band of David Duchovny, consisting of Berklee musicians. Colin Lee, a member of this band, is the producer of David’s musical career.

David Duchovny’s music presents a folk rock, alternative rock, and country music sound.

Check the song “Every Third Thought,” played in Paste Studios, NY (1/29/2018)

“Hell or High Water”, The Debut Studio Album

Now, I’m listening to Hell and Highwater, a song of the first studio album of David Duchovny and his band. This album was recorded by ThinkSay Records in 2015. Duchovny enters the front door in music, with great influences like Lou Reed, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan. Of these big stars, David took his first steps in guitar. David Duchovny is mainly a poet who found his way of expression in music. David is also a novelist and songwriter.

This debut album has eleven songs written by David Duchovny and composed by the musicians of his backing band.

Alien Con Baltimore Nov 09-11 2018

[November 09 through 11, 2018 Baltimore, MD, US]

Alien-Con. Had to get a picture with the quintessential live meme, Giorgio Tsoukalos, in person. I have succeeded in my mission. Everything else was just extras. I actually only went to the special panel for premium pass holders (was not worth it at all, the producer of the show yakked over half the time) and went to see Clara Oswald (Doctor Who) played by Jenna Coleman.

Dear Alien Con staff: “We didn’t pay extra to here some fat ass producer that no one knows about, to sit in the middle of the panel an usurp the show. We wanted to hear all of the “in front of camera” people, not for the “below the line” people. Got it? I am below the line myself and I don’t sit on panels where the actors and actresses are! Get a hint, it’s not about you, it’s about the celebrities in front of the camera! People left. Mad. Very mad! And – one woman was screaming at staff after the joke of a special for what a rip-off that ‘extra’ pass was. Please don’t do that again. Dear attendees – if you are going to LA (or Baltimore again next year), just get the normal passes! You would be way happier! And you get the same info and panelists throughout the event. No need to pay ridiculous prices to see a fat ass producer talk over the celebrities. Okay, end of rant.

So, other than paying too much, the rest of the event was great 🙂 Click on the pic or link below to see the pics:

Adventure with Ann, Ed, and Kathy in Alexandria, VA

[September 14 through 16, 2018 Alexandria, VA, US]

So, I invited Ann from Chicago to go with my regular irregulars, Ed and Kathy, for another Ed and Kathy plus Ann Adventure.

It was a dark and gloomy day. Rain and all, but Ann and I went onto the Potomac in a boat from Alexandria, Va to Georgetown and back. And made it to the Chart House and met up with Ed and Kathy for a great dinner. SO the pictures are mostly from the boat ride. Ann and Kathy went to trekking the Capitol and area the following day – but I wasn’t there, so no pictures. (I’ll ask Kathy and ask her if I can post some here…) SO here are all the other pics, plus one shot of my food and one shot of Ann, Ed and Kathy -the others were fuzzy, so one each of those. I’ll shoot off more pics at these events since it seems out-of-focus is more than in-focus… So here are the pics (click on pic or the link below):
