Still Up On That Roof
I tie up a few loose ends, add a bit more detail here and there, and continue bitching and moaning about last night's turn of events ala email. Ugh. Jump in...

Stay Up On That Roof
You've heard that parable about the man begging God to save him as the flood waters rose, right? Standing on top of his roof just waiting for God to save him? Yeah. Just listen...

I Reach For You
I wrote a new song, and that's what it's called! Yay! I talk about that and more in this one...

I Hate Failure, But Humiliation is Worse
Feeling bummed. I talk about it...

Is Neil deGrasse Tyson an Assehole?
(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! 😳

Roy Horn and John Lennon
I have stuff to say about *both* of them, and I do that in this one...

What Am I reflecting?
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...
October 18, 2020
Am *I* a Creepy Weirdo?!
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...

Monday Night Catch Up
Just bringing you up to date on stuff that has happened since the last podcast. Nothing earth shattering....
October 13, 2020
Absolutely Overjoyed
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!

A Surprise Text
I woke up to a total surprise in the form of a text message I would never have seen coming! Listen and I'll tell you who it was from. (HINT: NOT KEVIN...)
October 7, 2020
Overwhelmed and Exhausted
But at least I got my new washing machine...

My Vibrational Microphone

Star Talk
Maintenance issues, cosmos issues and chocolate chip cookies... yep. It's all in here.

Mic and Scarlett Have Arrived!
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!)
October 4, 2020
Creepy Update!
But not about the Creepy Weirdo! Ha! Listen and you'll understand. (It's about the creepy InstaGram follower...)
October 3, 2020
I am so grateful for so many things, and I'm sharing a few of them in this one.

Creepy Weirdo
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!

"Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?"
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!
September 25, 2020
Return of the Mack
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.

Mental Health Check...
Am I crazy? I guess the fact that I'm wondering means that I'm not, but still -- my mind fairly wanders...
September 23, 2020
Thoughts, Submissions and Refried Beans!
I talk about ALL of it in this podcast! Ha!

I Believe Paris Hilton
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.

35 Years Have Passed
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!
September 18, 2020
It's official - I entered into an agreement with BMI, and I'm overjoyed and feeling so peaceful and full of gratitude.
September 15, 2020
Sync Fees and P. R. O.s
As I continue moving forward into this life as a composer of music for film and TV, I'm learning so much, and feeling even more.. This one's pretty emotional.

12 Laws of the Universe
New stuff I'm learning... and a mention about "Drunk History" (which is seriously hilarious and available to stream on HULU - Comedy Central).

Six Dollars and Change
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.
September 2, 2020
Famous People
I meant to add this into my previous podcast, not create afm entirely new one, but... Really nice, successful, famous people who *could* act like assholes... but DON'T! So great!
August 31, 2020
A Bug Bite On My Nipple...
... and other stuff threat annoys me!
August 31, 2020
Happy Birthday, Michael.
Tell the people you love that you love them NOW, while you have the chance. Because when they're gone, it's too late.
August 30, 2020
New Stuff, New Me
I talk about what I've been learning from Abraham Hicks, etc. Interesting stuff, and I've got an evolving, elevated perspective about a bunch of things...
August 27, 2020
Update - All is Well
This was supposed to add on to my previous podcast instead of being a stand- alone one, but ohhhhhhh well! I'm safe, all is well!

*Super* Emotional: Epiphanies and Understandings
This is very deep, and I'm crying through most of it. So if that bothers you, you probably don't want to listen to this one.

What If That Was El DeBarge?
Just listen...
August 24, 2020
Be Kind -- It Matters
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...

Always Apologizing
August 17, 2020
Do YOU "Trust Yourself?"
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.
August 13, 2020
Invoking the Power of El DeBarge
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.
