Hello. How are you?

The next topic is necessary. Do you make new year’s resolutions? What is yours for next year? What do you want to change about your life? Yourself?

If you have thought about calling in but have not yet this would be a good time to start. Plus, it is free, which makes it way cheaper than therapy.

To answer, you can call 347-765-0148 or email a voice memo to listenbeheard@gmail.com. That number is just for you. Nobody will answer it and you never have to say your name. If you call the number, please pick a spot where you have the best phone reception possible. I would love to hear about your resolutions by midnight January 7, 2012.

Of course, the line is always open for anything you need to get off your chest or whisper into a tree.

 

Hello. How are you?

The next topic, of course, is obligatory. Let’s talk about the holidays.

Call in and tell me how the holidays really are for you. Do you love them? Do you hate them? How is the reality different than what is in your head? Please feel free to call in as many times as you like.

Here is a little extra something to warm your ears >>> holidaybells

Hello. Are you ready for the next topic? I am.

Call in and tell me how you are misunderstood. Or tell me how you misunderstand others?

Nobody will answer it. If you call the number, please pick a spot where you have the best phone reception possible. I would love to hear your misunderstanding story by midnight December 18, 2011.

Of course, the line is always open for anything you have to get off your chest. About anything. Really.

So here is an email entry I received. The more sensitive among you may wish to skip this one. Aside from leaving out a photo and name, the note in intact. The idea of this project was to literally hear voices (i.e. voice mails), but I thought I would include this.

“wow… I didn’t want to contact you, but I’m a GOD of Just Quitting.

EX:
I swore myself to celibacy as a boy, even though women hit on me all the time and guys all say I’m handsome too! (And I ain’t shy. I just wanted to focus on ART and MUSIC rather than the artificial lure of Pussy or Women. I don’t like being a slave.)

(cf my song “I’d Rather Make Art Than Make Out”)

I’ve turned down HUNDREDS of women who’ve begged me for sex, including numerous HOT naked teenagers in my bed, AND girls I was madly in love with!

(cf my songs “Pussy Is A Gateway Drug” [get it?], “Think Outside Of The Box” [um, get it?], and “Just Say No To Drugs (And By ‘Drugs’ I Mean ‘Pussy’)”)

I then quit my entire “religion” at 17 when I tried to kill myself (b/c having integrity in a world this intellectually empty is AGONY)… and for 2 years I fucked two gals, partied hard, and listened to Judas Priest even!

Then, I walked away from it all, cold turkey, despite being Mr. Popularity. I didn’t touch a girl from 19 to 29 (!) despite thousands hitting on me, and hundreds literally begging me to fuck them.

It took extraordinary circumstances for me to (sort of) give up my celibacy at age 29: I became friends with the girl of my dreams, a brilliant art weirdo who date raped me and I finally let her have her way with me b/c I didn’t want her to stop being friends with me (as most of my other female friends ditched me when they realized I wasn’t boyfriend material, sigh).
Years later, I still ignore women every day hitting on me or such. (It helps that I only like BRILLIANT girls.)  I’m sort of looking to date again, b/c I dated a gal and lived with her and we were a perfect match and we MADE TONS of art and music together. It was very productive. (We also had amazing sex and all that jazz. But she couldn’t curb her violence or dishonesty, so I dumped her after 4 years. Just as I dumped the girl of my dreams at 30, b/c she too liked violence and that shit’s a dealbreaker for me. For me to TWICE dump the Girl Of My Dreams is perhaps another example of my skill at quitting.)

ANOTHER EXAMPLE of my super-skill / ability to just say no, is that I moved to Boston at age 21 from my hometown in Mass, and I said goodbye to NOT ONE PERSON when I moved. One day I was just gone. When I moved to NYC from Boston, I did the same thing. No goodbyes to any friends or family.

Blah blah blah.

To be fair, I’m also the GOD of NOT Quitting. For instance, I SHOULD’VE quit my vegetarianism when I was starving in Rikers for 7 months for free speech, but I’m a master of sticking to my guns.

(I just didn’t want you to think it’s “great” to be a quitter always. It’s not.)
