X: The Unheard Music

X: The Unheard Music takes long, detailed, and often funny look at the Los Angeles music scene of the late '70s and '80s and focuses on the group that critics deigned the leader of the underground pack. X: The Unheard Music combines live footage of the band and interviews with the four members (as well as their friends and families) with surreal music videos and montages of newsreel footage and vintage television commercials which help to illustrate the band's uphill struggle against the music industry.


Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong in 1998

Here's Zach performing comedy at Petterson's Coffeehouse in Los Angeles, 1998. While it lasted, Petterson's was a beloved open mic scene, where comedians worked out new material. Plenty of now famous faces performed there. In this clip, Ken Jeong (Se?or Chang from Community, as well as the Hangover series) joins Zach onstage for some racial stereotyping fun. I saw both of them doing comedy quite often that year, and while I can't say for certain, this may be the first time they performed together.

For his part, Dan talks about wanting to see ghosts and the difficulties of selling haunted houses in Los Angeles. Filmed April 11th, 2013 for a future episode of StarTalk Radio. (And that's no heavenly apparition in the middle of the clip: it's Dan's wife Donna Dixon.)

"I Will Make up a Charge and Arrest You." Los Angeles County Sheriffs

During an undercover test of a Los Angeles County Marina del Rey substation a tester working for Policeabuse.com was threatened by the patrol Sergeant in command of the station. Not seen on this video, the tester entered the station requesting information about how to file a complaint. The same Sergeant in the video told him that if he attempted to file a complaint he would make up a charge and arrest him. The tester left the station but returns moments later in this video to ask a 2nd time. We instructed the tester to tell the Sergeant he did not want any trouble but simply wanted to exercise his right to file a complaint. The conduct in the video was recorded on the 2nd trip to the station at approximately 3 AM
