Blog post by Sean Amsing When I first auditioned for PARKED, they asked me if I had any special skills. Despite being a stand up comedian, I’ve also released three albums as a singer/rapper. So when it came to my episode it was a golden opportunity to showcase my talent. Davinder wants to live in a dream world so Adam (the co- creator), Gorrman (one of the series writers) and myself started a thread to brainstorm beat points. Adam wanted some sort of gangsta rap and Gorrman had written out some actions that we all thought were funny. I had produced a couple of tracks and we picked a beat that we thought would work well… Well the deadline was creeping up and though I had a lot of ideas, it didn’t really come to life on paper. On deadline day I had a stand up show and a little bit of time before I went up. So I snuck in to the office of the club and recorded the rap in to my iPhone. That night I put it together on my computer and sent it to everyone. Then Gorrman put my lyrics to his beat points and we were ready to go. I needed my verse to be vulgar, skilled and catchy. We weren’t just making a rap gimmick in a series. We were making a masterpiece in a masterpiece. I think I surprised a couple of people with how it all came together. I hope you are all surprised too. Listen to my music! Buy it! Allow me to do more! http://kaboomatomic.bandcamp.com http://www.soundcloud.com/heartheworks

Stay-at-home dads get the web series treatment in Parked, a new Vancouver-shot web series that’s burning up the ’net with its irreverence.
How irreverent? At the beginning of the first episode, three dads are sitting at the entrance to a park, chugging beer and aiming darts at a stuffed animal as kids play behind them. As the episode ends, one of the dads is dashing home in a panic, having just remembered that he left his twin preschoolers all alone in his apartment. Read more!
