Ground Zero is a nationally syndicated five hour live broadcast originating from the KXL studios in Portland, OR, and syndicated live by Premiere Radio Networks. Hosted by Radio Veteran Clyde Lewis, Ground Zero is truly independent media and covers the spectrum of fortean/paranormal and the parapolitical.
Tonight on Ground Zero, we continue our investigation into the ‘viral philosophies‘ surrounding the approaching date of December 21, 2012. Clyde Lewis is joined by Alan Abbadessa-Green, editor and publisher of The Sync Book, to help us all map out the synchronicities, meaningful coincidences and so much more!
11.30.12 Alan Abbadessa-Green joins us once again to talk about his books and the journey he’s been on while writing and compiling these works. His new book, Suicide Kings, is in the works, but the topic mainly swirled around synchronicity in world events and Mystical Toponomy. We discuss the possibilities of “ritual” versus “synchronicity” in the numerology, symbolism, and topography of major world events, and how we can avoid going on “Luciferian Illumanati” witch hunts in a society filled with kneejerk reactions.
08.04.12 This week, we are joined by Alan Abbadessa, writer of Look At All The Happy Creatures, to talk about his latest work, The Sync Book. The Sync Book is a compilation of 26 brilliant authors about synchronicity in the universe.
The second volume of The Sync Book with 26 new authors. November 29, 2012.

Tonight we talk to author and researcher Alan Abbadessa-Green, editor of The Sync Book, about the study of synchronicity in politics and world events. We discuss “the killing of the king” meme as it pertains to the deaths of Lincoln, JFK and Osama Bin Laden.
"Radio8Ball provides a media-saturated generation with a bridge between pop culture and some sort of communion with whatever you want to call it: the divine, God, non-local realityThe Pop Oracle." -Seattle Times
Radio8Ball is a night of live musical divination hosted by actor/author/musician ANDRAS JONES. Part rock and roll cabaret, part mystic mind expansion, Radio8Ball is the show where questions are put to "The Pop Oracle" and answered by picking songs at random, then interpreting the randomly chosen songs as the answer to the questions; like shaking a musical 8ball, for a night of what The Boston Globe called "the ultimate pop psychology experience; emphasis on pop."
The songs are performed by our featured musical guest
GRANT-LEE PHILLIPS is the mastermind behind the band Grant Lee Buffalo. GLB were critic's darlings of the 1990's who attracted the admiration of indie heroes like Robyn Hitchcock & Michael Stipe. Grant Lee first came to the attention of Radio8Ball as part of the revolving musical crew at LA's Café Largo where he was one of the resident madfolk who made history out of that room. Along with artists like Jon Brion, Elliott Smith, Aimee Mann, Fiona Apple, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, members of The Attraction, The Heartbreakers & The Rutles, and far too many more to mention, Grant kept the joint rocking with the kind of good humored caterwauling that once flourished between the cracks and will again. He's a puckish cat's cat who just so happens to have dabbled in the divinatory arts himself, with his own 2000 release, Ladies' Love Oracle. This will be Grant's first appearance on The Radio8Ball Show.
Each R8B show features 6 questions from the audience, one from the host, and one from a Celebrity Guest who Skypes in to the show from Hollywood or New York or wherever else they happen to be living and/or working. Past guests have included: John C. Reilly, Patricia Arquette, Seth Green, Weird Al Yankovic, Nina Hartley, Rae Dawn Chong, Daniel Pinchbeck and many more
MARY LYNN RAJSKUB is another Café Largo alum who first came to national attention as a member of the cast of the cult cable hit Mr. Show featuring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. She has gone on to play featured roles in Punch Drunk Love, Julie & Julia and the hit TV series 24. Mary Lynn has also played numerous memorable supporting roles in films and shows from Little Miss Sunshine to It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
The pairing of Grant-Lee Phillips and Mary Lynn Rajskub, with Andras Jones and The Radio8Ball Show at the Majestic promises to be an unforgettable night, so get your tickets early, and start thinking of your question for The Pop Oracle.
"For major shivers or just a fresh way of looking at things "R8B" is a uniquely amusing reminder that humanity has a collective fate." - The Los Angeles Times

Near HOOD RIVER, OREGON. Sat Aug 25th 2012 – Sun Aug 26th 2012.
SAT Full Day Workshop + SUN Q&A & Group Discussion + Book Signings.
Author and philosopher, Neil Kramer, explores what it means to be a conscious human being in the surreal world of the 21st century. In a discourse that explores the links between mysticism, sexuality, magic, and media, Kramer looks at some of the deepest and most encouraging secrets of the human story. As millions of people stop believing in the old hierarchies and traditional institutions, the universe is quietly returning power to all sovereign spirits with the courage and will to wield it. Kramer suggests that the parallel is not accidental, and offers pathways and perspectives for attaining a clearer and more fulfilling way of being. Inspiring, entertaining, and enlightening, Neil Kramer tells it like it is.

Keith Coogan welcomes Actor/Writer/Musician/Pop Oracle/ Author Andras Jones to “The Call Sheet”. He has written a book, “Accidental Initiations: In The Kabbalistic Tree of Olympia” where he takes us down the rabbit hole with his deeply personal time travel/non-locality/sync tale of adventure.
We dip into sync film culture, and cover our personal syncs, and connections with Anthony Rapp, Drew Barrymore, Andy Dick, Susan Tyrell, and Seth Green, the FloWman… We also dig into the dream state that movies can put audiences into, and how The Dark Knight Rises, and the whole Chris Nolan Batman Trilogy could be a veiled message from British/English/Monarch/Imperialist forces telling us to go ahead and have a nice, last kiss goodbye to our current American/capitalist/materialist pop culture that is now entering a dramatic phase of transformation in this current apocalyptic atmosphere and timeframe.
Whether you are already indoctrinated to film syncs, or would like to learn how films may have a deeper impact subconsciously and culturally than previously imagined, then you should join us in our shamanistic chat.
Andras Jones’ credits include “Night Trap”, “Attic Expeditions”, “Far from Home”, and “Nightmare on Elm Street IV: The Dream Master”. Andras currently hosts the Radio8ball show, where questions are answered by picking songs at random and interpreting them like musical tarot cards. http://www.radio8ball.com
