|In between workshops getting lunch at the Hogwarts cafeteria|
Hello!! Sorry it has been a long while since our last posting!!
Yesterday KK was at Hogwarts, aka Pomona College, presenting 2 very brand new workshops for Mark Allen's graphic design and performance students.
Here is our blurb from each of the workshops. Thank you to all the Pomona students for being fully present and open.
Swinging to the “B Side”: Psychic Design
What’s the B side of your best design? What’s unrevealed, yet to come, underappreciated? In this class, psychic duo Krystal Krunch will lead you through guided exercises to help you turn up the magic in your best work to produce more hits, more wonder.
You will learn how to meditate to get into a receptive state, collaborate with a partner for a psychometric reading on your best work, and practice some all-too literal shape shifting as you unlock new ideas from your highest design self.
Bring a copy of your best design, a notebook, a blanket or towel if you need to stay warm during meditation, and a pair of blunt scissors.
Mini Lives, Mini Masquers: Past Life Regression and Micro Theater
Go deeper deeper deeper into your performance life as Krystal Krunch takes you back in time to a “past life” from which you will channel a short theater work in the form of site-specific tableaux with gesture and minimal text. Whether you were Abraham Lincoln or a pomegranate, you will enjoy this easy, seductive journey into the images, ideas, and speech that underpin your performance practice.
Bring a blanket (pillows too, if you need them), notebook, pen and an object that has special meaning for you, that is charged, full of life for you. Costumes welcome!
Note: KK will not really hypnotize you, but allow you to be open to suggestion, imagination.

Our first wallpaper design!! We were super jazzed when the wonderful folks at Extrapool asked us to design wallpaper that will cover the walls of their space for the duration of our residency. Here it is! The colors represent the colors of each chakra. The text in Dutch translates to: "Thank you father, thank you mother, thank you for all that was, all that is, and all that ever will be."

We're sorry it's been a while, but rest assured, Krystal Krunch is still taking care of business. As you see above Krystal Krunch recently went to Happy Feet to get some good ground floor care. Asher has been busy working on his play The Florida Room and traveling to Miami and getting ready for its L.A. production in June. Haruko has been in and out of nyungne retreat and trying not to sound too out of it while teaching! In April we did get to do spirit drawings and readings for Machine Project's night of Spirits and Spirits!! We had such a great time and hope to do this again some time soon. Oh and if experimental sound is your thing, please be sure to check out SASSAS' 10 year anniversary benefit blast! on May 19. There will be a Krystal Krunch private reading auctioned off for those interested!

We just got back from a trip to Hartford where we, along with cheese monger/friendly wine tzar/you still gotta know your tonal basics music man Chris Kallmyer, gave our Mind Reading for the left and right brain workshop at Real Art Ways. Asher and I also got to watch a few Oscar nomintated shorts in the Real Art Ways art house movie theater and fell in love with the film The Buzkashi Boys. You will see Kabul in a whole new painterly light.
Thank you to Real Art Ways for the wonderful turnout and to everyone who participated in the workshops! There was so much good will and generosity. And thank you also for the wonderful view of the state capital building from our windows!!
BONUS PHOTO: A very mysterious little poster we saw in the Real Art Ways hallways.

|Back on the mothership. The twinkle of the Bijou yonder...|
Oh and just fyi to all the CalArtian cats out there, CalArts still smells the same.

|We each got a super cute Guatemalan doll from Guan who had recently returned from a solo trip to Central America.|
Thank you to Guan and John for a super fun time on their radio show noooooooooooooo! on KCHUNG radio. We also got to visit (about 10 steps from the radio station) each of their studios and to see their amazing artwork. What a treat! What a night!
You can listen to the entire show here : )
