It's the study of insects — you know... those creepy, crawly little things. Dung beetles, aphids, cockroaches, fire ants. Some of them even got wings. Little creatures that make you want to jump on the table or hide under the sheets of your bed. But not us. Why? Because we love em'!!!


There's Something Strange in These Waters.

Out of the creative ferment of Portland, Oregon, comes an album of nautical adventure called The Peculiar Tales of the S.S. Bungalow an 80 minute seafaring audio narrative full of fun characters, the sounds of adventure out on the open sea and foot-tapping music throughout.

This 2 Disc critically acclaimed and Parent's Choice Award winning album is now available on iTunes and to retailers nationally (Big World Audio Theatre, Burnside Distribution). Preview this magical, multi-voiced musical voyage here.


... on a bustling pier, full of the sights, sounds and smells of a fisherman's market. Above the din, a voice is heard inviting people to come near an odd and misshapen building: The Museum of Maritime Wonderments and Nautical Oddities — a place where curious findings from the Atlantic are on display. A small crowd gathers around to hear the most fantastic tale about a curious old wooden ship and the man who once captained it. Join the crew as they transform a creaky old boat into the S.S. Bungalow to set sail across the Atlantic Ocean. In their quest to reach the faraway and mysterious Lullaby Islands to grab the treasure, the intrepid travelers discover all sorts of “Obstacles and Riddles,”“Purple Icebergs” and “Amphibious Legends” before an albatross leads them to meet the fearful “Lullabeans” on the islands where “Monsters Never Sleep.”


... actors, artists and oddballs participated in the making of The Peculiar Tales of the S.S. Bungalow, a seafaring adventure that weaves a fantastical voyage through story and song. Laki Karavias (director and procucer) and Jason Reuter (songwriting mastermind extraordinaire) gathered the roster, mostly from Portland, but also from a nationwide talent pool. Seasoned voice actor Kevin Barbare delivers the engaging narration. Noted children’s book illustrator Ward Jenkins created the album art. Eric Earley (Blitzentrapper) performs several instrumental and vocal tracks, and gospel singer Liz Vice contributes vocals as a little clown fish with a big voice on “Barnaby’s Song.”

Glistening production and a host of sound effects – the creaking of the ship, the cries of sea birds, whistling toads and the crashing of waves on the deck of the S.S. Bungalow create a mesmerizing listening experience for the whole family to enjoy together.
