Did altered state therapy. It's Kinda therapy alike altered state. Yeah and what is that with drugs at all had any ketamine? I did Ketamine for pain. It doesn't work pain. Well they said it would works for. Ptsd so you had a lot of PTSD. I didn't have a lot of PTSD. I had I had four specific things I was going after and I and I worked with the I do exactly what they were. I spoke with him a few times to kind of nail down. I went after it. I mean the way that I did. It was not an clinic. It was It was privately and it was. It was immensely helpful and when I say to you you know oh I do. I need to have a Man. I. I'm not saying that to use a self deprecating thing. I'm saying that as a woman who understands her machinery. I'm saying that as women who understands her creative machinery I became an actress because Neil OC- form and said under leach cool. You have to decide if you will be a good girlfriend or a good actress and I thought what to see need more. He needs someone to star in his movie. I can do that. I wanted to be a singer and I was singing jazz. And kind of writing these plaintiff little songs candidate and Ronnie Hawkins is bandages. Left him at gun on the road is the would dylan is hawks or whatever. And he said you know. Stick with me the party through silk so I learned all these rockabilly tunes. It's always been in service of some man and I always get out of it carrying the pearls but it just that's that's my machinery and I'm kind of into it. Although I have of late thought is. It really might just trying to get to that. Universal that universal consciousness were all of our hopes and desires in in creativity lies to some art. Here's what I think I know. Sound like a bullshit. No I think some people think you're probably a little crazy and some people think you're genius. What's so crazy? Let me? I'm not on the genius. There's a thin line. I think what you're saying makes perfect sense to me. Some people have whatever that. Why do I want to deal with those exactly? That's my point but what was mine. What I'm thinking is this. I know where my mind goes in millions of places and I could feel like all all over the place which I you probably feel in a lot of ways to open right but then I sort of feel like you know. I'm like you know I'm this and I'm thinking of this and I'm thinking of this and how do I calm my mind? Now there is that one thing I think it was Einstein. That's why I go to therapy. Just because I like to channel all the shit for an hour and a half and then go I feel good. It's off my chest. I do it in a different way. I write songs. I work on my shoes. It I used manage. Yeah use it see and I mean it's it's getting frustrating because all the work that I've been doing since last. May I don't have something to show for it so it does sound crazy on his? I'm using it. It sounds crazy if I was just in a normal life and I wasn't And I didn't have any creative outlets. Go Yeah maybe I should do therapy. But that's not where I'm at but I think you know I'm not at that. I'm into that by the way if you say you're crazy because in a year whatever you haven't figured out a one woman show. That's the genius that you've been thinking for your for how many years it takes time you know what? Rufus said he said. I should just book the cake and then I'll have to do it. You know with somebody else just told me they said again people always way. Here's what he said is. Actually you know who this was. This is Billy Boyd. From Lord of the Rings he was on the last podcast or podcast few weeks ago and he says this made a lot of sense. People are always near accent. I want to the exit. But he said people are always wanting to perfect something to rehearse it so much and then for because they don't want people to think or show that and he goes. That's just part of it but I know. But here's the thing that is my second phase my second phases in April and Kirk comes back from there with tweet Zo and we are going to put it on. Its feet the last question. Yeah has al. Did you ever ask Albino? Fuck about the poster. No nothing sexual. Nothing I said poster. Oh Oh yeah. Yeah you're GONNA get him and he'll do that you know. I'm GonNa ask you about this. Did you ever ask him to run lines or did he ever ask you run lines? I just think that defunding watching you guys on lines together going to indulge in this kind of psycho fantastic fan based line of questioning. It's really demeaning. And you shouldn't do that. It's way it's demeaning demeaning yourself when someone attaches it's a fan like thing that means they put someone above them. Don't if you put someone above you you're putting some of its Kidman and someone goes at Chevron lines of the ago she did say none of Your Business. Fuck you beverly Dangelo.
