My guest was Jamie Beeman. We talked music, a lot! This girl has been doing music since she was 4 YEARS OLD!! 14 years, so yeah, she's definitely been putting in her time!!

A reporter from KTLA got a hold of me through the KNX reporter, andwe met up along with an anonymous donor who gave me $1000!! The reporter filmed while I wasn't looking a short clip for twitter.
I was on the radio and they also did a write-up! People have been reaching out and donating. It's been a very nice Friday. My birthday is coming up, if my gofundme reaches its goal I will have a place to live and own the land it lives on! Gonna grow my own food.
Sometimes I forget to post the episode till the day of. I sometimes forget. Been hanging out with a friend who reached out and offered me a place to shower. Those have been highlights of the year. The world is burning. I might get hired soon! Still, hire me.
I got super baked and then recorded the podcast. This one's kinda quiet, I recorded it at around 4:30AM. Reach out, let's chat. Venmo or CashApp or PayPal me if you wanna donate.
I talked with Anya Volz about stand-up comedy and the pandemic and podcasts! Check it out and (for now) you can exclusively hear it HERE. Also follow her on twitter her account is always fire.
I'm BACK in Los Angeles! It's the middle of a pandemic, I'm not allowed to get my own Big Gulp cup, I'm homeless and living in my van, working on getting car registration complete all I need is a SMOG check, and I've got some potential work coming up!
Mask up. For your own safety. For the safety of others, but truly think about the science of blocking germs from a cough or a sneeze. A mask WILL HELP. Help yourselves and you'll inadvertantly help everyone else.
C A Mattson and I had an incredible discussion about the current political climate, what's coming, what's happened, and some possible solutions to unrest. About an hour of the recording was lost. There will be a sequel.
Still tired. Still homeless. Donate to my Venmo @ Doug-Culp or CashApp $DougsNugs if you'd like to help. Or hire me. Please hire me for remote work or Los Angeles-based work. Willing to relocate immediately.
Shaq Please Help Me. I just got hired at Five Guys and my first week is going to be 16 hours. I told them I'm available every hour every day. I need more work and finding jobs isn't helping that much. I'm homeless, sleeping in a van.
I had an amazing chat with Elf Lyons! We talked about Edinburgh Fringe, the ever-evolving form of comedy during quar, and a back injury from entertaining so hard! Elf is a treasure. Seek them out!
I messed up big time. I recorded a new episode. An interview with Lindsay Goldwert! She was funny, sincere, and interesting as hell. We talked all about life and dominatrixes, and I screwed up the audio. Short ep this time. Stay safe with coronavirus!
VOTE FOR BERNIE. Watch Good Girls. Please PELASE if you wanna see my stand-up special tweet @yamatat #ReleaseThatSpecial and I'll find a way. Currently looking for a way to get it out to the world. Please share this podcast. It's kinda all I've got.
I worked on Halloween, there was a great dead bride costume that came in! I saw a bird on the way to work that was flapping in place and it freaked me out, looked like a simulation glitch! Losing my grip and thinking of restaurant ideas!
300 episodes of the podcast. Been a wild journey. I've never missed a week! Recorded this on my walk to work and then while sitting waiting to go in. This job has been rough on the Lyme Diseased bod.
This week has been a tailspin. I got kicked out, was moved back in with my parents, wasn't allowed to take most of my things, got my healthcare shit started, and got a job! I start Saturday.
Thing about choosing to have an open and public persona is sometimes relatives will stalk and talk shit behind my back. More importantly, I've found some gig-based work! I don't belong here. Hopefully I'll be gone soon.
I talked with my sister Natalie! We were hanging in the basement of her and her hubs' house. Pinball, Defender, Food Fight, GAMES!! And Don Knotts! Happy Thanksgiving all. Be well!
The Aquabats are a band. The Aquabats have a TV show. The Aquabats taught me, years ago, how fun ska can be. Buckle up, Aqua-Cadets! Cadet 252 here, let's do this thing. Cadets, assemble!!!

I was fed 3 days in a row by a friendly stranger named Kat. She & her boyfriend Jake saw someone in need and decided to reach out! I'm at from Greg & Lex's place. They were nice enough to let me stay the night, and we caught up a bunch & hung out!
I'm going on a stand-up tour! Duplex Comedy Suplex: The Lyme Disease Awareness Tour! Also I'm making headway with the idea to END most homelessness EVERYWHERE! Join me, won't you?
Today I went INSIDE Button Mash to play some games. I played Charley Chuck's Food Fight, got the top daily score, then I moved onto Robotron: 2084. I got the whole daily high score board, still haven't hit the permanent board yet. I'll get there.
214 episodes! I wax poetic about bullshit commercials and their horrible tactics. I should refine some of this and put it in my stand-up. It's kinda tough when NO ONE watches commercials.
I sat down with my buddy Danny Roew. He's a director, writer, and we talked about some of his projects. Dog Lovers, Shotgun Wedding, and Dead 7. Check them out after this episode!
Things are okay. My friend Steven and I are starting a band! Profiles of car-clinches. I was almost hit 3 times because of shitty drivers. Spending a couple days at Josh & Tyler's. Get Back Loretta plays The Casbah tomorrow night!
Been playing arcades more! I ranted a bunch, recorded while I was driving, whilst inside a 99 Cents Only store, and more while putting up the car-tent. Hmu. I need work and showers and to amplify my voice.
Allen Price and I sat down and talked writing and creating! He's had some personal successes and he told me some of the things he'd done and worked on. Some he's currently working on. Check it!

Car Chat with Doug Culp! Been sleeping in my car for 10 days now. Releasing this early so you can go watch Corporate on Comedy Central channel AND app! This one gets a little emotional!
Help me if you can...I'm feelin' dowwwn. I'm working the Santa photo gig. Got transferred to Topanga Canyon Mall and want to hurl myself off the parking garage roof! I've rediscovered my hatred of THE MALL and I'm stuck there for the next 3 wks. CONSUME!
My friend Joe and I sat down and talked art. We talked some comedy, talked independent artists, and weed! Joe's letting me crash on his couch for the moment. He's helped me in a big way. Thank you Joe.
Today I bid farewell to the duplex. This is the place where Duplex Comedy Suplex was held for 2 yrs. I recorded a BUNCH of podcast eps here. Happy to have been here. Happy to have hosted.
This is it, listeners. In 1 week I'll be relying on the kindness of strangers with couchsurfing and car-sleeping. Pls give a 5-star rating & a "Help this guy..." review. #5starsToNotsleepincars
I played Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over The Sea, I went on Toke.TV, I did a flipagram, and I asked for help via VenMo and paid work. I hope this works. Eye hope I works.
I got the HTC Vive in the mail, cameras installed, everything hooked up, all within the 2 days when the price dropped! I'm currently typing this in a program called Virtual Desktop. Pretty awesome! Updates!
I got psyched, disappointed, then relieved again about Decentraland. What is it? It's digital real estate! VR is the future, and I think Decentraland will be something like The O.A.S.I.S. from Ready Player One. Also Trump is a nazi and kkk. Jail Trump.
Watch episode 7 of Blood Drive with me! It's on Syfy, in season 1, and it is everything. Sex/violence/comedy in a Grindhouse-style post-apocalyptic landscape. Some cars run on HUMAN BLOOD! No spoilers, only reactions! #ReelHigh
I played Fortnite with my friends Josh, Tyler, and Aldrin. We kicked some ass, got loot, upgraded characters, found BluGlo...ya know, adventurer stuff. Video games are and always will be awesome. The video of us playing is up on my Twitch.
It's a suggestion, AND what the episode is about. I journal. I've done it every day since 2003. I've written many things about my life. Join me as I type into my journal, with narration!

Here's some music I've written through the years, along with explanations to go with each song. I write music. Guitar, piano, harmonica, theremin, omnichord, tambourine, beatbox. Enjoy.

Stephen Spinola was the guest and it was a rage-filled riot of awesome! There were laughs, there was a guy with a video camera, and documentary-type stuff was going on. Only we were the only talking heads and we were only talking with each other. Hand-drawn dick pics, stand-up comedy, accidents and lawyers. It was awesome.
