How are you doing? Peak Covid-19 Update from John Emotions

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

John Emotions checks in from the pandemic in SW Louisiana. Things are sketchy, but looking up! Not infected, but feeling the affects of the media. Looking to nature for answers.

It's only head and now it's online Bible this stylecom yes, an emotions with Bible it style. WHOO. Yeah, it's a lot to live up to. So I kind of feel like a Dick because the episode before last I was all about a tournaments, like yeah, you got to go talk to people and see people facetoface and go explore new churches in real life. And obviously since then this bizarre ass virus is taken over and now nobody's allowed to go hang out with each other. So, Um, I guess I should reiterate some cool things to do if you're like feeling shitty and alone in your room or your house or whatever and don't have any pets or family or whatever. We'll talk about that in a minute, but I want to catch you up on what's going on anyway, like why I haven't been making as many...

...of these podcasts and why probably won't continue to make a lot of them. But you know, since a lot of people are kind of panicked getting really anxious about not going outside, I figured why not throw another log on the fire have another podcast? So, anyway, here's what's going on. We came down from, obviously a while back, from about a year ago now, from California over to Louisiana. We are up in the ARC LA text they call it Arkansas, Louisiana Texas area. That was shreveport, and stayed there for a little bit. Came down to a town in southwest Louisiana where we're kind of trying to do some renovations, start assign company and things like that. You know, things you can do when you have mental conditions that make you not want to either conform or just can't get out of bed sometimes or need to not have a boss shouting over your shoulder or whatever. So...

...anyway, you could always do it yourself, try entrepreneurship. So we got down here and then what was really cool is, as fate would have it, two of my sons are they were ready to move on from where they were like for whatever number of reasons, the same way I always am, and they had an opportunity to come here. So the cool thing is that they're here with me. In fact, if hear any noise in the background there, they're just chilling while I'm doing this podcast as well. In fact, you for them on those past to podcast, Nick and Jack. So we're basically doing the whole social isolation thing together, which is great. It's kind of a boring generally, but it's great to be around people I love and haven't been around for a while. So we're doing all over, catching up on fucking, you know, podcast and youtube videos and, you know, sharing different movies we've liked and haven't seen together. So that's pretty fun.

I like that and I wish everybody had that same opportunity and I feel, I don't, for lack of a better word, blessed. Not a religious person, but I feel like we got really fortunate to kind of if you're going to be stuck together, be stuck together with people you love. And we also happen to be stuck in a town where it's pretty socially isolated anyway, or physically distant from one another. Just a lot of space between people. So, since we're already distant from each other anyway, practicing whatever social distancing, physical distancing as I call it, is not difficult out here. We I mean, you can go for a walk around town and nobody goes for a walk. It just one of those towns. They'll wave at if from the car and we'll wave back, but otherwise it's and it's not much of a change. But the cool thing is we've got plants. The cool thing with all this downtime has allowed us to kind of craft some really...

...cool plans for the future that involve all of the things that we each love together working towards a common goal. So that should be a lot of fun. You know, I was checking out some of the things people were doing with APPs and on the Internet. There's one cool thing you should check out I thought was really neat. The Comic Maria Bamford is doing shows through zoom, through the zoom APP, and she's paying her staff and she's donating half of the proceeds, proceeds proceeds to the downtown Women Center and Los Angeles, which is a great organization. Check that out. I know Becky at that B word podcast and I we're talking about doing like a Hollywood squares with the bunch of people from the mental health kind of twitter environment. But then I found out that Skype, in this program I'm using, ECAM live, won't...

...allow for nine consecutive squares like a grid. So kind of put that on the self forgot to tell becky about that. Anyway, Becky, that's what happened then the software won't hold fucking nine squares. So what do you do anyway? So there's some cool ideas that you can do using technology. So that's kind of what we're getting to. If you want to start a group or anything like that, I would highly in coourage you get on twitch or a gaming platform. Animal crossings is out now, and anything where you interact on almost real time doing something that's not looking at viruses. Fuck that's so much better for your mental health and staring at the news and worrying about what the president or the governor or whatever the fuck saying. Not saying to diminish germs. Obviously. What I'm saying is what you focus on grows. I've said that many times. And if you're just going to focus on germs and viruses, that's really all you going to start seeing and then you'll drive yourself...

...fucking crazy. That's kind of the reason why I don't like doing this podcast as much. I mean not to not to Piss off the party, but when you have some kind of disorder and the you know, it always changes, the diagnosis always changes, comes around full circle and does the whole thing and you know, we just pick whatever want I had at the time and so let's do a podcast about that. But again, what you focus on grows, and if I just sit here and focus on a mood disorder, will always notice my moods. Well, sometimes if you just fucking focus on a thing that you like to do, like starting a new business or working on our art project or, Hey, even crafting a podcast, sometimes it's just fun if you stay focused on a different thing other than that. So I'm working on different PODCASTS. The boys and are putting together podcast called jive Bros. That kind of serves our affinity for for the Jive, for the...

...weed and the marijuana. We were all big fans, I would say, spokespeople or activists or whatever for it. But we're going to do the give Bros. If you want to find out more about what we talked about there, you welcome to it. And a lot of my buddies from across the country we call in and talk about today's events. You know, typical white guy podcast stuff, I guess, but you know, we feel we do it in a honestly, we like to talk to each other and hang out, so we might as well record it and just get practice talking on the MIC's Mike Technique, recording technique and pushing the buttons on the fucking, you know, production gear. So that'll be. That will do. Give Bros, and once in a while it might hit up bipolar style. But I switched over. It did little little flipflop with twitter accounts and then I dumped the main one. So now I didn't not follow you personally. If you're listening to this and like what the fuck do you but do you want follow...

...me? I just why would? Why would I do that? I don't know you now. I just dumped all those accounts and took the one that had the most people left over with, which was a different account. I think I have on some accounts. I have, I think, like more twitter accounts than I actually have followers on some of them. It's fucking ridiculous. Anyway, pulled the fast one with a twitter and dumped off the Bisy poler style people, dumped off the johnny emotions people. I think I locked both of those counts of the private so whoever was was in the gate already. Well, congratulations, welcome to the party. Everybody else will just communicate through a fucking podcast. Hey, why not? Far The thing with twitter that was driving me crazy was that, well, we have tons of listeners that download the podcast, not too many of you are like twitter engagers or whatever, and the handful that were I didn't really see or hear from that often. So it just became like feel like I'm just talking into the air...

...really. So, anyway, that's why I'm just need free my mind, look at stuff, go out in nature. So we actually found a cool place to go. We had to down this one road in town and it took us two dead ends and at the dead end, how about that was a fucking river. Was Amazing. Check it out. I'll send pictures. And there's nature. There frogs and gators and turtles and bugs, lots of bugs. Well, it brings me to another thing. We might get to go work on a farm. Yeah, because I think the farm hands got sick and we might get to go work on a farm. This should be fun. Take picture of that Shit too. Know. Anyway, I just want to check in real quick. Not really going anywhere. I'm just not producing a lot of shit, but I am okay, fine. I'm out here in the middle of nowhere, effectively away from networks of people. I'm...

...not in a working for a homeless company, you know, nonprofit helping homeless people. I don't have that kind of stress and everything's generally okay. Now we're just moving forward on our plan and trying to make something happen while the world is basically stopped. So I wish US luck there and check us out at Jive Broscom or, you know, on twitter, wherever, at give Bros. I'd happy to see you there and go to buipolar stylecom and by got themn t shirt, would you okay? Cool, eleven minutes is plenty of me talking. Thanks for joining and talk to you later. Style. I cheese five. He's so stupid. And now back to the wall.
