Hello AGAIN and Happy Friday the 13th!!
Today is the day to share some amazing news that the Traveling Psychic Supper Club has been working on for the past year.
I guess the best place to start is kind of what is the beginning. I hope you’ll stay with me…and if you Started with me, I hope you’ll add anything I’ve forgotten!
It all kind of started with this Event, which brings me full circle today – This was my first event with the Driskill hotel, which I had always seen as a PINNACLE. I wanted to do something there, but wasn’t sure if I should, like it was too soon after starting the supper club which had just begun in July. But Lacey was there and said, why not? WHY NOT THIS YEAR?
So I went with it.
Then I went to a marketing/PR meeting because I kinda suck at that stuff – where I met Dave Mazner of http://www.meetup.com/PRoverCoffee-Austin/ here in Austin, I told him what I did and he told me to contact
http://austin.culturemap.com/ that they would love what I do and be into the Supper Club. I did the next day and Michael Graupmann wrote this amazing article. Which would be instrumental in my/our future and I didn’t even know it. The Driskill dinners were a huge success and I now work closely with the Driskill on public and private dinners. I’m having one tonight, in fact! What better night than Friday the 13th?
So around Thanksgiving I wrote this:
This is how fast things happen if you let them.
I wrote that post on November 24, 2012.
On December 5, 2012 I got a phone call from a director named David Sauvage . He had been commissioned to create a pitch about a show about psychics and food by a major Cable Network. This is David. He’s awesome!
David and his Production Partner Andrew Bly flew out to meet us for a dinner. It was at the Driskill. It was amazing. David and Andrew were both “one of us”. Some stuff happened, then we had a tiny setback that wasn’t a setback at all, just a blip and we moved forward. Someone amazing stepped forward and we were back on track. We made a plan to start the ball rolling on a production reel and they came out and filmed it in April. I wrote about it here: http://travelingpsychicsupperclub.com/2013/05/14/psychic-tv-behind-the-scenes-aprils-dinner-at-moonshine/
Then they left, we kept in touch, some stuff happened, Summer happened. The footage was edited and shown to some people – but a lot of them didn’t get it. So we kept working (David, Andrew and their guys – they kept working.) We kept having dinners, doing readings, swimming, enjoying our kids/families/LIFE and this amazing wonderful summer of 2013.
Somewhere in there, I got a radio show with an AMAZING online Paranormal Radio community called www.paramaniaradio.com. Thank you very much to very talented astrologer and Supper Club member Donna Woodwell for making that connection!
During this time, I was still talking to David, and our conversations became much more frequent. We ended up collaborating on a regular basis, he would say this is what I have – this is where we are, and we would talk and I would channel and we would decifer the information that came in. And we would go in the direction we were led. And a very clear direction emerged. The individual with the right energy emerged so we moved towards that.
Then Susan, Lacey and I went to Boston. I wrote about that here: http://ifyoucouldseewhatihear.wordpress.com/2013/08/10/so-im-baaaaccckkkk/
We did a radio show from there which was fun. You can listen to that here:http://paramaniaradio.com/extras/ondemand.php?ondemanddir=Traveling%20Psychic%20Supper%20Club&getfile=Traveling%20Psychic%20Supper%20Club%20-%20Lacey%20Givins%20and%20Susan%20Eischhorn%2020130725.mp3
Our trip to Boston really created a whole new level of energy, even though it involved only Lacey, Susan and myself, it solidified something for all of us. It was a tipping point and the GAME WAS ON. By going to Boston, we had, as David says, Put our stake in the ground.
While we were in Boston I had lots of phone calls with David, conversations with Kelly, Lacey and Susan. Kirby pretty much chills and we fill him in later. That’s just how Kirby rolls. He grounds us. He’s rad.
We were getting offers to partner from some different production companies but the fits weren’t there. None of they were who I had seen. I held off on dropping the hammer, and David agreed. This partnership has been amazing, and correct. BUT We weren’t there yet. And these were amazing companies, each and every one. But it wasn’t right yet. The correct Tetris blocks hadn’t fallen yet. The right block would fall right from the top, didn’t need to be twisted or turned, and it would be perfect.
Then it fell. The right person got it. And not just got it, but GOT IT. The right block appeared and fell into place.
So if you’ve stuck with me this far here is the announcement:
I am proud to announce that the Traveling Psychic Supper Club is partnering with the Weinstein Company to create our TV Show. Some stuff needs to happen between now and then, but it will, and I’ll be heading to New York to pitch the show to networks alongside my Director, Collaborator and Friend, David Sauvage and Harvey Weinstein, who I have yet to meet, but am already excited to connect to this amazing ball of energy. Things are coming together, and we are here to do the work. I hope you’ll visit back to see the progress on the project, which I am excited to now openly share. There is so much energy behind this, and I appreciate the energy that the group, David and Andrew and everyone associated with them – Josh, Alexi, my Hernandez family that I come from, my immediate family – Jim, Pic and Elena, my TPSC Family here in Austin, my extended family at Paramania Radio, and my psychic family that is only growing all over the country. Everyone who has worked with us on this side, AND the other, Adam and Paige – Love to all you guys. This is only growing and getting better.
There is work to be done. I’m here to make things happen, and I don’t mess around. Thank you to everyone who is behind me and the Traveling Psychic Supper Club.
Perfect timing: 3:33pm
This is how I feel right now. Can’t Hold Us. SO many things about this song speak to me on so many levels. And it’s just wicked fun, when I hear it I move. My city’s behind me. And anyone who knows me knows I’m like when you give a little speed to a Great White Shark on Shark Week. Macklemore’s flag says The Heist. Mine’s just got an EYE.
Thanks everybody and have an amazing weekend. Love to you all, Love from Texas
