S1. BONUS EPISODE. | BUNGALE SK WITH MOULIN ROUGE X MOULIN ROUGE BROADWAY

Bungalow SK BE MR.jpg

Today's bonus episode of Bungalow SK is pretty exciting and full of glam! I remember when Moulin Rouge came out with Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor. There was so much to love about the visuals, performances, music and more. In addition, it's when I became mesmerized by power duo Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martine. This film was made in partnership with the historic Moulin Rouge which debuted in 1889 and continues to have phenomenal shows in Paris. Flash forward to this summer when I sat down with principal dancer, Claudine Van Den Bergh Cook and Fanny Rabasse who has worked for a number of years as PR for the Moulin Rouge. They sat with me in Times Square to talk about the historic Moulin Rouge, the shows, how Claudine preps and of course, the costumes as well as how and where they are produced. We also talked about Moulin Rouge Broadway which just opened here in NYC as an extension of the partnership between this iconic performance house and Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martine. It's also interesting to note that during NYFW The Blonds which are known for their over the top style and celeb filled runway shows will be partnering with Moulin Rouge Broadway to present their SS20 line.

We were listening to an episode that gives a bit of background on Wondery's 1865, and one of their guests was Dallas Taylor, host of Twenty Thousand Hertz. His specialty is sound design and in this very bingeable podcast they explore sound! Why are earworms so catchy, why are you nostalgic for notifications that were within ICQ's universe or the start up sounds that your device makes? Dallas reveals the stories begging the most recognizable and interesting sounds.

In addition, he also looks at the history of how certain sounds that may have been made centuries ago, continue to exist today such as the iconic Wilhelm scream (if you don't know it, once you hear it, you realize that you have heard it a million years. Hearing from a number of people who have added to sonic sound, sonic seasoning and more is definitely something that you can enjoy while you're getting a lot of work done and reminiscing on why this resonates with you - thus the beauty of sound design.

VERONICA MARS

Hulu Originals

Not only did many people have Veronica Mars circled on their calendar, but it dropped early during the month of July! With Hulu Originals presenting one of our favorite towns, affluent Neptune - we continue to merge the past with the present. In addition to Veronica still being a PI and working with her father, we realize that under her thick skin, she's still one to fight for the underdog to get to the truth.

The season begins with Spring Break and seeing familiar as well as new characters and within moments, there is a crime to solve due to a number of people dying in an explosion. It becomes a serial nature when more incidents pop up. We also catch up with Veronica's love life with Logan and one her best friends Wallace whose life has definitely continued on since we have last checked in with him. As always Veronica Mars is a mix between dark humor, mystery and learning about oneself through the interactions with others. It's definitely worth the wait to see how it unravels.

ORANGE IS THE

NEW BLACK

Netflix Originals

Each summer we check in with the women of Litchfield and the characters that are adjacent to the prisoners; however, with season 7 being the final season - we are in a series of transitions! We see inmates that did their time come back to prison, those that left in previous seasons to see where they are since we have left them and those that are navigating job changes that formerly worked with the prison system.

Characters grapple with decisions that they have made, changes they wish to make and the fact that at the end of the day, they lean on their community for direction, hope and the ability to understand what they ultimately want in life based on their own choices.

CHERNOBYL

HBO

What is the cost of lies and the danger of directing a narrative. In HBO's 5 part series, we follow a number of characters who take us through the devastation of the explosion at Chernobyl, how it was handled by employees, how the government went about acknowledging the incident as well as coming to terms with the state of their actions.

At each moment, the viewer realizes that the risk of avoiding issues as they come up results in lost time and increasingly devastating costs. If you enjoy watching the series, you should also listen to their podcast as they explain how the creative team approached filming this miniseries and choices that were made in doing so. This podcast (of the same name) is available wherever you enjoy listening to your favorite shows.

THE SHRINK NEXT DOOR

Wondery

Spotify

Imagine it's the 80s and you live in the Hamptons and everyday you see your neighbor. He's at home and throws parties that a number of people enjoy each year. You realize that the neighbor is a psychiatrist who loves being around celebrities. You also notice that he enjoys a well manicured house that includes greenery, koi fish and more, and the gardener seems very particular about ensuring that these tasks outdoors are completed.

But when a journalist found out through another neighbor that the psychiatrist did not own the Hamptons home and that the gardener was the owner an intricate story unfolds that shows the lengths that the psychiatrist went to in order to embed himself in this and other patients lives to their detriment. In this true story that is extremely binge worthy, you have to keep reminding yourself that this happened.

FYRE

Netflix

Debuts 01.18.19

It seems like at any given point, there is a festival of some sort. Groups plan on attending these music events from where they will stay, what attire they will bring, enjoying performances and of course, to capture the perfect Instagrammable moments. When the Fyre festival hit the Internet, everyone saw a number of the world's top models and influencers who rocked swimwear and enjoyed a number of activities that were on an island estate formerly owned by Pablo Escobar.

What was built as a luxury festival ended up being an epic disaster that left guests stranded and confused. Netflix's Fyre documentary shows how Billy McFarland looked to launch his musical booking app with the festival and partnered with Ja Rule. In addition, we see other vendors and team members that worked with him to bring his vision to light.

Throughout the documentary, viewers watch the mounting problems that forced the venue to change, push decision makers to consider unsavory decisions to bring water to the event and more. Billed as, "The Greatest Party That Never Happened" - you get the benefit of a bird's eye of all the details that led to this avoidable disaster.
