EleAMental Podcast No. 94: Hotel California

December 6, 2019

In this entry, I’m talking about checking out of Hotel California. I’ve lived here since I was 10 years of age, been in L.A. since 2013. While this city has given me plenty of room to grow and be myself, it’s starting to feel more and more claustrophobic. It’s a place that I see as progressive ideologically, but not as much in practice. I think it’s the nature of this place where people come to chase dreams, but forget what it means to be a good, healthy person. So perhaps it’s time to see what else is out there in the world.

EleAMental Podcast No. 93: Gratitude

November 25, 2019

In this entry, it’s time to be thankful for time, thankful for the ability to change things, and thankful for what we have and accomplished in our lives. Yes, life might not be exactly the way that you or I want it to be right now. It’s very easy to see the negative and ignore the positive. However, it’s those positive things in your life that are going to help you get where you want to go. So lets take hold of life, take stock of what we have, and prepare to go roaring into the 20s.

EleAMental Podcast No. 92: Pork And Beans

November 14, 2019

In this entry, I don't give a hoot about what you think and neither should you. Being “Normal” isn’t something that should go away, but we should change what that means. What if instead of it having to do with alienating people for being unique and different, it actually has to do with how we treat other in an ever evolving society. Kindness, acceptance, and compassion as a common thing everyone shared in our culture, could you imagine that? Perhaps you should be.

EleAMental Podcast No. 91: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

EleAMental Podcast No. 91: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

November 9, 2019

In this entry, I’m not redacting what I’ve said or decided in previous recent entries, rather amending a few things. We’re humans and we can’t change the fact that we have an emotional reaction to things. You also can’t live life in a completely intellectual, neutral state. Even if you could, would you really want to? I deal with a lot of emotional imbalances due to my mental health issues and it’s exhausting. Sometimes my judgment is off, making it easy for me to commit rash decisions. So this is an entry about admitting mistakes, growing from new experiences, and hopefully moving on and committing to positive changes.

EleAMental Podcast No. 90: Everyday Is Halloween

October 31, 2019

In this entry, it’s time to share the spookiest stories from my life experience…Fundamentalist Christianity! I opened it up to questions, got one response, and proceeded to talk over an hour and a half about young indoctrination, speaking in tongues, and how they work their manipulations to hook you in and convince you that everything they’re doing is not crazy. It’s madness unraveled and explained. Dim the lights, grab some candy, and be prepared for some chilling revelations.

EleAMental Podcast No. 89: Family Portrait

EleAMental Podcast No. 89: Family Portrait

October 24, 2019

In this entry, it’s about family. Unfortunately it’s not the feel good, Full House type, but the hyper-religious kind that sweep anything under the carpet that’s too shameful to deal with. I had 35 years of excuses for their behavior, while hiding myself from their periphery just to keep them from being “exposed” to the way I live my life. Now at 36, I just don’t have another day in me to tolerate intolerance. Shared blood and genetics is never a good reason to stay in relationship with people who actively poison you. Time to shed a tear, then shed the past.

EleAMental Podcast No. 88: New Direction

October 8, 2019

In this entry, we’re pulling out the ol’ Rand McNally maps, plotting a course, and heading out into the wild. It’s time to get back to business, know where I’m going once again. Possibly, just possibly, help you too if you’re feeling lost. Additionally, this is my birthday week and I’ll be posting a report card of myself for this past year of living, each day this week. Buckle up, grab a big gulp, tune into some terrestrial radios, and let’s get at ‘er.

EleAMental Podcast No. 87: I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)

September 18, 2019

In this entry, we’re talking about sex, baby! Well…sex adjacent. I asked for your questions on Facebook, and you delivered. You never know what you’re going to get when you ask for questions about sex related subjects, so this was a truly interesting recording session. We’re covering asexuality, monogamy, polyamory, open relationships, and down and dirty cheaters. Thanks to my questioneers for your contributions. Hopefully, my perspective is helpful.

EleAMental Podcast No. 86: What A Fool Believes

EleAMental Podcast No. 86: What A Fool Believes

September 5, 2019

In this entry, it’s multiple choice! Well, at least that’s how Christians practice their faith. They would never admit it of course, but many fundamentalists claim that they follow ALL the scriptures in the Bible. But do they actually? After recently falling asleep watching YouTube, then waking up to a YouTube auto-play of videos from Girl Defined (A Christian based series of obnoxious messages about purity and a woman’s place in the Patriarchal structure), I’ve got some bones to pick. First, WTF YouTube? Second, I’ve come here to drink a PSL and kick some scriptural ass…and I’ve just finished my latte.

EleAMental Podcast No. 85: Angry White Boy Polka

August 29, 2019

In this entry, everything sucks and everyone is an asshole…Or maybe not.  Does anger and rage always spawn more anger and rage, or can it be redirected to provoke our better natures instead? That is my topic, though I don't claim it will be easy.
