(And YES, I spelled "Asshole" with an extra "e" in honor of the "e" at the end of the "...ass..." in his middle name. Make sense? Good.) Believe me - I don't think he is, and you know I've got a bit of a crush on him! The only reason I named this podcast thusly is because as I was recording it and going through YouTube, I stumbled upon several videos which seem to imply that there was some sort of ugly confrontation between him and some dude who was interviewing him. But that's only a tiny part of what I talk about in this one! Hissing pineapples, my policing of my colleague's word/phrase usage, my new InstantPot, donuts, TAXI Independent A&R, chocolate-covered espresso beans, difficult clients... Yeah. This one's a doozy! 😳
If the universe is like a giant mirror and doesn't communicate through words but through vibration instead, and if it gives to us what we reflect onto it, WHAT THE HELL AM I REFLECTING? How am I reflecting some of what I'm manifesting? I mean...
I mean... if you have to *ask*... Kidding. But the stuff I've been manifesting, and the understanding that if we manifest not what we *want* but, rather, what we *are*, then I need to know: AM *I* A CREEPY WEIRDO?! Listen as I ponder aloud...
With 22 minutes to spare, I completed performing, recording/engineering and submitting the two instrumental piano cues I was working on - under the deadline by that tiny margin, and it wouldn't have happened if a number of things hadn't happened exactly as they did. What a gloriously joyful achievement. I truly am over the moon, and I'l tell you about it all in this podcast!
The newest additions to my little musical family, Mic (Michael!) - a Shure SM 58 cardioid dynamic microphone, and his fraternal twin sister, Scarlett - a Focusrite Third Generation 2i2 Interface - were delivered and joined their siblings, Kit (the drum kit) and Roland (the piano!), and we've all had a very eventful day! Newborn photo shoots, work, etc. -- Mama is TIRED! (I also use the word "amazing" about 3,000 times, so I APOLOGIZE! it's very annoying but I'm aware of it and will try not to do it in subsequent podcasts!)
First, I tell you about super fun musical endeavors and the new equipment I just bought tonight - including a Shure SM58 mic AND a fabulous Yamaha MODX8 synthesizer!!!!!! - and then I tell you about the dream I had last night about this creepy weirdo guy I met online about a year ago! Ha!
Okay - the universe is making itself known today and I am the beneficiary of its folly! Such a glorious morning with some spectacular gifts from the universe, courtesy of the law of attraction! I'l tell you all about it in this one! Yay!
Some interesting developments have, well, developed since my last podcast. Listen while I tell you about them! By the way, it's: Earth, Solar System, Milky Way Galaxy, Local Group, Observable Universe. Pretty amazing stuff.
I am so sorry for the atrocities Paris Hilton endured at the Provo, UT "boarding school" where she was involuntarily confined and which she details in her new YouTube documentary, "I Am Paris." I talk about some of the abuse I endured at the hands of adults in Utah, where I was born and raised, unfortunately, and those reasons (and many more) are why I believe her. I wish her the very best, and all the love and support she can possibly have as she tries to heal and recover. I wish the same for myself.
I last (and first - same day!) met Doug Merrill when I had my first ever professional recording session at Matrix Media Productions in Provo, UT as a newly 15-year-old girl on August 15, 1985. Last night, I met him again, and this time he was accompanied by his lovely wife, Judy. It was so incredible to see him again and talk shop; he's a sound engineer, musician and songwriter, and I'm so excited about collaborating with him on some wonderful new endeavors. Absolutely incredible. The universe really knows what it's doing!
That was the cost of the biggest gift I could ever have given myself, and it happened today at Albertsons grocery store when the little old man in line right in front of me was trying to pay for his groceries.
In this one, I'm wrapping up a couple of (or at least one!) loose ends from previous podcasts, sharing some devastating events perpetrated against me by my family and explain why I always think someone is either going to or coming from being at Disneyland wherever I get an emotional shock. I also talk a bit about the Law of Attraction and miracle mentor and alchemy life coach, Robert Zink and his wife, Rachael. A general hodge podge podcast...
While watching an old YouTube video featuring Bunny, James and Randy DeBarge, I was shocked and upset When the therapist on "The Dr. Drew Show" told James DeBarge to trust himself in response to him saying he felt afraid and didn't trust anyone. I thought it was incredibly dismissive, for lack of a better word, and that she just didn't *get" it. In this podcast, I talk about the death of my brother, Spencer, to a drug overdose, and why the DeBarge family members' drug addictions are affecting me the way they are. The experience of having siblings who are addicted to drugs and/or incarcerated is one I know well.
Do you know about El DeBarge and his struggles and triumphs? Absolutely amazing. I talk about what I've learned recently, and how much love and respect I have for El. Plus, my surprising and new-found gratitude toward Jermaine Jackson - DeBarge-related.
