YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, SO WHAT THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN EATING??

We’ve all heard that old school phrase before, “you are what you eat.” Surely somebody’s mother if not your own or a teacher or television character somewhere on down the line in your life must’ve uttered the phrase, “you are what you eat” in your presence , no? But let me ask you something. What in the hell have you been eating? Ya know, I’d actually always known that I

AMERICA THE DELICIOUS, YOUR ROAD TO RUIN TASTES GREAT.

Do you remember the taste of the baby food that you were fed when you were a baby or toddler? I know that I surely do not. But if there is one thing that puts a smile on almost everyone’s face, my best guess would be the sweet taste of sugar. Salt might come in an uncomfortably close second place. I had always known, maybe not perhaps always, but since

MS, MY PATH TO EMPOWERMENT

Some people think I’m crazy for saying this, but being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis was the best thing ever to happen to me.  It was without a doubt, the single worst news I had ever received in the entirety of not only the 38 years before I was diagnosed, but the 9 years that passed since then.  I’ve had people that I loved dearly suddenly befall an untimely tragic death,

BECOMING A PRACTITIONER

After a multitude of YouTube “explained” videos and actually purchasing a book on Amazon, the Cryptocurrency Investment Bible, I decided to simply get started by opening a Coinbase account. It was really easy, all I had to do was sign up and after verification of my identity and linking my bank or credit union account, I was off to the races. On Coinbase, you have access to purchasing of Bitcoin,

24, THE ULTIMATE SALESMANSHIP MECHANISM

Frank Zappa allegedly once said, “Hollywood is just the entertainment arm of the Pentagon.”  This is absolutely true, and what started as a joke often wasted on Facebook on numerous comment threads has ended up becoming an entire dissertation for me.  Zappa also said once that “government is the entertainment division of the military industrial complex,” which is also true.  Personally, I don’t like the term, Military Industrial Complex (M.I.C.),

When I first moved out to Los Angeles in 1992, just five or six days after the Rodney King Beating Verdict ignited riots that set several noticeable upon arrival portions of L.A. ablaze.  Growing up in small town Midwest America, we didn’t have a lot of easy access to alternative media as you would find in a city like Los Angeles.  I’m not saying that we’re particularly unique in that

PRINCE - PIANO & A MICROPHONE, 1983.

Prince was my first icon when I was in middle school back in 1983. How in the entire actual sequence of the contemporary historical timeline of actual fucks did I not hear this amazing cut back then?? This would have changed my entire life and my whole musical worldview altogether, swear to God it absolutely would’ve. It would have deterred me from all that heavy metal stuff, because the piano was my

KITCHEN CHEAT CODE

A fundamental requirement to taking your life back from the system that wants to enslave you is to start cooking for yourself.  Back in the day I used to eat a lot of takeout foods.  I never really got into the frozen TV dinners that you see throughout every grocery store freezer aisle.  My disposable income was being wasted on takeout food or fast food.  I lived in Playa Del

TEDx GAME CHANGER

Having already been heavily influenced by the late and great Ann Boroch, who wrote Healing Multiple Sclerosis, this particular TED Talk turned out to be quite the game changer for me.  When I first got hit with the MS humdinger upside the head, I went for the Swank Diet, avoiding the fat and all.  This didn’t do shit, I still had severe vertigo and was seeing funny, stumbling an bumbling.
