Intermission: I think this LiftID brain zapper may actually be working on me.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

I've been super busy with work lately. This is a quick update on the brain zapper thing I've been using — The LiftID tDCS (Transcranial direct-current stimulation) — for my ADHD and depression. I think it's helping me. 

I'll start with new Haiku titles and a new intro next time. 

Hi, I'm John Welcome to Emo Dojo man. It has been a wild month to saythe least, but I'm not going to talk aboutpolitics, why you can get politics all over theInternet. So I'm not going to talk about politics heres. What I'm going to talk about?Remember the lifted brains, apper call, the brainsout a we need to figure out had a better market. This thing, because theinitials are confusing to me and I'm a smart person. So there must be amarketing challenge in here somewhere. So the thing I have in my head rightnow, like I'm using it as we speak, there's a band on my head with electroelectrodes that are Zappig, my brain, my frontal lobe with electricity, and Ithink it works. I don't know okay, so here, let's figure it out right lifehas been pretty wild. If you haven't listened to the podcast long, I startedit a couple years ago, in Los Angeles, California. Originallyit was called bipolar show. I thought that was dramatically incorrect, because theshow itself was not by polar. So I think, after an episode of that onsound cloud, changed it over to by Bolestyle and did by polar style for along time, then I get tired of focusing on the word by polar at all and then slowly morphed it over toEmodojo. So, throughout all that time,...

I've had a pretty wild existence, so in Los Angeles I workedat a software company that Donald Trump used to get elected, and I met a friend there. I moved backto San Francisco, managed Ha hundred and sixty room hotelthat served o people that were formerly homeless and turned out. That place was corrupt.So I left and I filed a whistle blower lawsuit. I didn't file it. I have itwaiting right here, covid came around and the lawyer said: Well, we can't nowbecause I have a stack of cases o this high and I can't get any into thecourts because of Covid so anyway, I hope nothing happens to that hotel. Soanyway, I bounce from San Francisco to Louisiana where a friend of mine, fromLos Angeles, was from more recently I'm in Oklahoma. Why is that? Well, it's because I'munstable, I'm like like. I have issues with my brain, so I have an unstablekind of vagabond nomadic lifestyle. I go where I can and I have to admit. I think I gosometimes where I think there might be some adventure, regardless things M,we're still pretty stressful right up until the time I started usingthis device, the lifted device. If you want to look at what I'm talking aboutwhile I'm talking about it, just go to get lifted, com get lift idcom, I'm notselling it, not a salesperson. I get no commissions. Obviously, there's nocodes to enter nothing like that. Just for research purposes. That's what Ihave in my head right now,...

...so nothing had really changed. So I'vetried plenty of different medications. Over the years, the last most effectivemedication I took with something called Concerta, which is amphetamin basedmedicine for Athd, and that woke up the little traffic copin my brain and you started conducting traffic a little more accurately. I had a more clear vision of the futureand became more hopeful. My depression lifted a little bit. Well, it also lifted my blood pressure, so the doctor told me well, you cantake blood pressure, medicine too, to which I said how about none. So I don't take any of those mets. Idon't take my Adhd meds and I don't need the blood pressure mits now and my diet hasn't changed. My astrology has changed, but if youdon't believe in the science of this brain Zapper on my head, then you don'tbelieve in the pseudoscience of astrology. So that's not a reason whymy life would be getting better. That point being my life feels like it gotbetter, not slowly. Well, when my kids moved away, so my kids andI moved to Oklahoma, and then they got their own place well, it feels like Igot broken up with again, maybe just me being fragile, I don'tknow, but it hurt once I realized that I was just broken up with Hi'm like ohwell, like most people realize when they get broken up with at some pointis like oh way: I'm free, I'm free, okay, cool. I just do whatever.Obviously, I'm not going to go, adopt some foster. Kids or anythinglike that, I'm super free, I'm an adult with kids that are doing their ownthing so that realization that I'm free might have had something to do with itlike they say, things always happen for a reason. Aside from that and theastrology that said, things are going...

...to start picking up the only otherthing. I've really changed. Is this brains, Zaper thing on my head: Now I don't follow the instructions and I don't recommend you do it the wayI do it, I'm just sharing what I'm finding out. Okay, remember at your sketch there wis a toy,I'm a generation x, so we had it. Our parents added, I think and pretty sure millennials know whatit is, because there was one in toy story at just gets some sketch so withthe edge sketch there's a screen of like magnetic dust, and you turn a dialleft, I right up or down, and you can trace the little lines in the screen.That's covered with the magnetic dust and it looks like you've drawnsomething on the screen magically. So that's a crude way to kind ofillustrate what the concept of neuroplasticity is. So the idea with his brains, apper andalso magnets, which I'll get to in a second, is similar to and et jus sketch. If youdon't like what you drew on the picture, you shake it all up. You mix up thatmagnetic dusk, and now you can draw a new picture on it. It's the same way they find with thebrain and the idea of neuroplasticity soundsweird because it's sounds like plastic to me, but it's not that at all, butthere's a concept in modern western science that you know electrons and I meansytopses- are firing off in your head. Well in neuroplasticity, if youinterrupt those it's like shaking the edcha sketch clean, so this electronicdevice is brains, apper transcraniol, direct current stimulation, that's whatit's doing to my front Olobe in the...

...hippie world, there's also the conceptof the third eye. Well, how about that right there will you put thiselectronic device is right over my third eye when your third eye getscalcified, you COAN Chante, you can go. You make these chance an in loosen upthe calsification of your third eye break through you start to see thelight. I think that's a similar thing. That's happening now with this God,Damn brains, Apperi. I think it's doing the work for me, so I don't have to sitaround humming. It's so much easier, I'm not trying to. I wasn'tanticipating a hack. I just feel weird humming, but I drive a lot now sosometimes I do find myself humming very loudly at the top of my voice to kindof break apart and whatever's plugging up my third eye. If you don't know what the Hell I'mtalking about, then it's okay, I'm into some weird shit, I'm like into thetheory of everything. So if you're a hippy, my thirdeye calcified and thisbrains, Zapper is decalsifying it, I believe, if you're inte westernneuroscience yeah, I think this brains, apper thing works as works as well asmagnets to stimulate the synapses and allow mybrain to kind of rewire itself. There is no really good metaphor oranalogy for the brain, a lot of people use computer and I don't think that'saccurate at all crudely, maybe, but so check it out. Let me know what youthink. I appreciate Dr Ken. I was reminded of this thing on my head,because I saw the rerun of the shark tank that I first saw him on about sixweeks ago. I'm starting to think this fuckingbrains. Apper, is not a wacky product. So getting back to the magnets right, Itold you several weeks ago, a couple...

...months ago I was trying magnets becauseof reading this book called the emotions code running magnets along theMeridian of my brain, trying to eluminate hidden emotions and badmemories, and things like that. I think it's Kooki. Well Not Kino. I guess not really, becauseif this brains Zapper is kind of working well, then I read a headline this morning as Cimthrough the article it's. It was about magnets, big magnets, like heavy duty, electricelectromagnets, basically a magnet version of this brain stimulator. Ihave on my head so where this brain stimulator thattranscranial direct current stimulation use as electricity. There is anotherdevice, that's a transcranio magnetic stimulation, but effectively they dothe same thing they're all getting in there and scrambling your synapses sothat your brain can refresh or carve new paths or draw new pictures orwhathave you reprogram itself. You know. So that said, I am taking advantage of what whateverit's doing. I don't I don't know. I don't know what my brain's doing. Ifeel better IAND, that's the thing right like when you have or whul you'vebeen told you have something like by polar disorder, Youyoure, sometimes leery of thesefeelings, but I've been more like hypermatic and definine definitelymanic times, but this feels to they hold on a second.This is my electronic brain stimulator. It beeps when it's turning off. So I think it beeps for like thirtyseconds. Let's me know it's winding down, I guess in Hase I fell asleepwith it on or something...

...and give it a second and in the last one makes a differenttone at the end and it slightly different voltage too. I can feel it. Yeah took it off my head. It's got little surgical, sponges on. It reminds me ofan old horror movie called the Schocker, but man that's funny whan throu theheadphones. I think I heard the electricitygo busies anyway. It's not painful, I mean it's alittle pin prick, have you ever been to the kiopractor and they put thoseelectrods on your back. It's that idea that type of pain but way way liss isthe chiopractor they to crank those things up and really get in there onthe muscles. So this isn't it's that type of than but way less. Youunderstand just ta Tane Pin Brik for about the first thirty seconds, andthat goes away. And frankly I wish I had my own KNOB,because I would turn it up more. I already do it sometimes twice a daywhen you're only supposed to do it once, but it did it workd. I think it worksan like. I said: I'm not selling it, I'm not a scientist or a doctor, butsomething's happened. Okay, e'll, stop rambling and finish up because that's what this whole show isabout me, rambling. I I figured out the formula, I'm not nota formula like a structure. I need structure, but I like structure that Iget to invent of all the things that I've been doingthis past season, especially through November, when I was trying to do apodcast the day I did more than that. I did like thirty five in a row,something I bet, but here's what I'm going to keep theHigh Kou headline so th, each of my...

...podcast headline is just going to be ahigh coup and I think yeah, even the description in the inthe podcast. That's going to be high cou, because I use this cool hostcalled sounder dot, F M and it transcribes all of the words I'msaying anyway. So if you go to my podcast page, you can just type in aword and it'll. Look. It'll show every instance in the podcast of when I said,Fuck Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck fuck, and then you could just go to sounderand like look at Fuck Cool Huh, so I don't really want to doshow descriptions. Moreover, I want tot be more like anart project. So we'll start there hig cou headlines.I got as shorten the intro too I'm thinking of something. Just like I love my heavy metal intro that I'vebeen using. I've been that's a kind of a thing theydo in Hollywood, so, for example, Tom Cruise does top gun movie. Then he'll do cocktail after that rightmovie about a bartender, well, what they subtely do in the cocktail movie.Trailer is somewhere in there, they'll be music from top gun, so there's an audio segue. So that'swhat I've been using my heavy metal intro for for ever or at least since I stoppd using the boy pull I stoil gay, I'm trying to shorten that up. Theintero should be hell of sort right. You know what Jhannel you're listeningto so, let's make the intro really short just like right,...

...so hi Cou, shorter intro. Oh here's! Why here's? Why I'm justgoing to fuck around on this one, because at my job job at work, I thinkI finally found a way to incorporate a podcast, a fun bodcast to work, becauseI don't really want to do podcasting as work like there's a lot of people whoproduce podcast as their job. I don't like producing podcast I like, like ofall about five or six things that you have to do for a podcast. I think Ilike two of them I like talking and I like, researching gear.That's IT I don't like any of the other stuff. Maybe designing logos, that'sthat's fun too, but no, then the other stuff, the promoting the editing, thetrying to get a guest, the trying to be a guest. It's so much work, but I foundway to put that in small amounts into the an environment which actuallyis work and would benefit my day. Job So ill have my slick, professional podcast over thereand then I'll. Have this one here, why just kind of get to be me and screwaround fact? Ip was starting to think man. Irecord a Lod, O podcast hi, never ever publish that's. Why theye' Su few and farbetween sometimes because T, I don't really care about a schedule for thisone, so I record them yeah, there's likesince Kati and I recorded and published that one about coming, owt crazy. Ithink I recorded like four since then, and then I listen to them, I'm like Nathat's trash that does not contribute to the betterment of the world likethese. Do like this one does, I mean, can imagine like if, if I let this one go, how bad some ofthe others wone must have been,...

...and now back to the wall.
