Celebrated Hollywood Creatives Launch a Unique New Form of Entertainment That Takes Spirituality to an Exciting New Level0
MALIBU, Calif., Nov. 20, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — This is The Frequency (ThisisTheFrequency.com) presents The Digital Spiritual Resort, a totally original and anarchic form of interactive entertainment that turns enlightenment, meditation and philosophy on its head. The Frequency experience uses music, humor and drama to explore the deepest issues of existence, and offers insights that will help you overcome the obstacles you face in getting the life you want.
Double Emmy(R) award-winning writer Simon Moore (“Traffik,” “10th Kingdom,” “The Quick and The Dead”) has teamed up with Hollywood sound legend Val Kuklowsky (“Game of Thrones,” “Independence Day,” “Stargate”) to create a new art form that breaks all the rules.
Kuklowsky and Moore assembled a team of artists and sound specialists from Hollywood and around the world to realize the Frequency project. “We would originate a recording in LA, then it would go via Germany, England, Iran and India and back to the USA. It was a truly global production,” says Kuklowsky.
The expanding Frequency movement has grown in just three years to involve over 40 people from around the world. Through a combination of the online experience and live events, the Frequency movement is committed to exploring new art forms using modern technologies. “Our aim is to defy existing expectations and conventions and totally re-invent the concept of spirituality for a modern audience,” says Moore.
The Digital Spiritual Resort is the result of their three year collaboration, a luxury refuge where you relax after work and laugh your way to enlightenment using revolutionary sound and editing techniques. The use of binaural and isochronic subliminal beats have led some listeners to suggest it’s spiritual brainwashing, a claim which makes Moore laugh.
“People who go on a retreat and meditate and people who take an E and dance are doing exactly the same thing. The Spiritual Resort brings those two worlds together. It’s Hollywood meets Eckhart Tolle. It’s ‘Enlightenment Meets the Munchies.’ And it’s a totally unique experience,” says Moore.
When you enter the Digital Spiritual Resort you arrive at a futuristic lobby and get checked in by a robot concierge. So far, so strange. It’s more like a portal than a hotel. Then you get in an elevator and go to some very weird places, and the fun starts.
Four different resort environments offer completely different experiences. Dance music on the beach, a soap opera in a sauna, private conversations overheard in a bar, calming meditations in a garden — with a chainsaw? The more you listen, the deeper you get into the spiritual mystery, and the more you begin to understand the connection between the four levels, as fact and fiction blend into something unique and transformational.
“These recordings unpick your brain,” says Kuklowsky. “It’s meditation for people who can’t meditate. It’s enlightenment for the lazy. We do all the work for you.”
Adds Moore, “You don’t have to do anything but listen. In fact you can chill out and go to sleep if you want to. It will still work.”

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Nov. 3, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The only known existing scrapbook of original cartoons drawn by Walt Disney will be auctioned at Bonhams in New York City this month, Phil Sears Collectibles LLC announced today. Walt Disney was no more than 17 years old when he drew the 13 cartoon characters in the scrapbook. Two of the characters are rodents, drawn a full 10 years before he created his iconic Mickey Mouse.
The rodents are trench rats; the young Disney drew the cartoons at the close of World War One while serving as a Red Cross ambulance driver. The drawings, dated 1918, include soldiers, the German Kaiser (being kicked off a cliff by an allied soldier), non-war cartoons, and of course the two rodents. The young Disney gave the 11-inch x 14-inch scrapbook to a female friend from Chicago’s McKinley High School. Disney dropped out of high school after only one year, forging his birth date on the Red Cross application to serve in France at the age of only 16.
The Bonhams auction also features the earliest autographed photo of Walt Disney ever offered for public sale. Just 16 or 17 years old in the photo (Walt celebrated his 17th birthday while serving in France), the future entertainment mogul tries to look serious and older than his young age.
Walt Disney collectibles dealer Phil Sears ( http://www.philsears.com/ ) consigned the items to the auction. “This is the earliest collection of original Walt Disney cartoon drawings not locked away in a museum or the Disney Company archives,” says Sears. “In terms of Walt Disney’s life story, these are the ‘cave paintings’ of his creative timeline.”
The drawings and signed photograph are two of ten lots of teenage Walt Disney artifacts, all of which are considered to be the earliest of their type ever publicly sold. They go under the gavel November 23, 2015 in New York City as part of the “Bonhams & Turner Classic Movies Presents Treasures from the Dream Factory” auction. The auction lots (including photos, details and bid estimates of Disney lots 138 through 147) are online at http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/22486/lot/138/.

LOS ANGELES, Calif., March 13, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA) announces that “Fear Google” artist XVALA will be revealing the recent dumpster dived trash of Kim Kardashian, featuring the celebrity’s collapsed basketball at a roof top event in Los Angeles this weekend.
“Slammed and Dunked,” a life-size sculpture of the basketball salvaged from the celebrity’s residential trash, was partially inspired by Kardashian’s recently failed marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries and the questioned authenticity of their acclaimed nuptials.
“Many people in this country are still very concerned with marital rights – after Kim Kardashian’s mockery of marriage, why should anyone take anything she does seriously, anymore?” asks artist XVALA.
The sculpture was created out of a ‘recycled resin’ formulated from remaining leftover garbage that was also collected from the Kardashians’ trash bin. Also, a part of the collection is candid mobile phone self-portraits of the reality star that she took for Twitter and Instagram, which are backed with aluminum, also partially recycled from her personal garbage.
“By deleting everything that reveals who she really is, Kim Kardashian actually reveals her true self,” said XVALA, “You can always learn something about someone by looking at their garbage, and Kim produces a lot of garbage.”
“I agree with Jon Hamm. Kim Kardashian should refrain from making any more reality shows,” said Cory Allen. “People aren’t too entertained by divorce and failed relationships in these economically trying times.”
Dumpster diving is nothing new to the artist or the mainstream media. Late last year, XVALA invaded the residential dumpsters of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Apple’s Steve Jobs, who passed away a day after the release of his personal trash. XVALA was also responsible for reconstructing celebrity Scarlett Johansson’s nude photos for his “Fear Google” campaign, posting the two hacked images all through the streets in and around the Los Angeles area as street art.
“The Kim Kardashian Party,” curated by The Site Unscene, will be held on March 17, 2012 in Los Angeles, Calif., on 1460 Naud Street, at the location’s roof top.
