Esape with ExXxoticc

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-c3idh-b7d90c

“Yet there are moments when the walls of the mind grow thin; when nothing is unabsorbed, and I could fancy that we might blow so vast a bubble that the sun might set and rise in it and we might take the blue of midday and the black of midnight and be cast off and escape from here and now.” ― Virginia Woolf, The Waves

With a name like “ExXxoticc” one would expect an unpredictable interview. You are in for a marvelous surprise when Brigitte and Siri interview this young rising rapper. ExXxoticc may be exotic but she is down-to-earth, approachable, and authentic. The conversation flows about how she began her career, identified her stage name, and what “escape” means to her. Opening her latest single with a plea to God, ExXxoticc captures her struggles in sound with a dark and dirty banger that stands out as one of 2019’s heaviest releases. Built on a snarling trap beat and a menacing piano riff that backs up her potent lyricism, ‘Die’ is living proof that ExXxoticc smacks harder than anyone else in the rap game.The chapter on Escape from Be the Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers Celebrating Gifts of Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World is read and discussed while Brigitte explains how she escaped anxiety and the pressures of a first year at university. This is an evocative, thrilling hour of young expression.

BIO: ExXxoticc
Hailing from the Bronx but based in LA, ExXxoticc writes and records music that she describes as “the killer of the elephant in the room” – big, bold and boundary-breaking, her tracks brim with vitality and aggression. It’s not something she often shares, but there’s one fact about ExXxoticc that speaks volumes about her inspiration: her godfather is none other than Tupac Shakur. Friends with her mother, the legendary rapper died on the same day she was born. She’s since been deeply influenced by his music, seeing him as not just an inspirational figure but a creative idol, honoring his legacy with her music. You can hear Tupac’s honest, authenticity and devotion to his craft in every one of her tracks, as she releases her deepest feelings and emotions with every rhyme.
“My music-making process is always fun: that’s where me and the beat collide and become one. When I write I unleash myself in the rawest way possible.”

Voice Acting with Marc Cashman, Workplace Harassment, Troubling College Admissions

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-wihwz-b77c7b

Do you listen to audiobooks? What about radio and TV commercials? Have you ever wondered who are the faces behind the voices? Meet Marc Cushman, voice talent for over 40 years who is also a TV/radio commercial producer. Marc has taught undergraduate and graduate students at USC, UCLA and California Institute of the Arts, instructs voice-acting of all levels through his classes through The Cashman Cache of Voice-Acting Techniques in Los Angeles, CA. He also coaches voice actors worldwide, produces V-O demos, and writes monthly online columns for NowCasting.com and Backstage Magazine.

The talent agency for Cynthia Brian recently sent an important document concerning sexual harassment and information regarding eating disorders. In light of the egregious conduct of many powerful players in many industries, including the entertainment industry, these notices are critical pieces of information.

There are no easy solutions to the challenges of college admissions as the stress and tension among parents and teens mounts about being able to get into an appropriate institution of higher learning. Cynthia Brian relates how her alma mater’s chancellor at CAL Berkeley addresses this complicated issue.

BIO: MARC CASHMAN is one of the few people in the commercial production business on “both sides of the glass”—as an award-winning Radio and TV commercial producer, as well as a working voice actor.

Voice President of Cashman Commercials, Marc creates and produces music and copy advertising for Radio, TV and Internet, and has won over 150 advertising awards, including the prestigious CLIO, on behalf of hundreds of ad agencies and clients across the country.

Voted one of the “Best Voices of the Year” by AudioFile Magazine three times—and an Audie winner—Marc is a veteran voice actor with 40 years of studio experience in Radio, TV and Internet commercials, foreign film dubbing, animated series, video games, and over 150 audiobooks. Author of one of the best-selling books on voice acting, “V-Oh! Tips, Tricks, Tools and Techniques to Start and Sustain Your Voiceover Career,” Marc is currently represented by numerous talent agencies around the country.

Parks Not Pills

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-6yy87-b76a6e

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul” John Muir

How often are you outdoors? Are you spending most of your time sitting in a chair staring at your computer screen? Do you feel lethargic, tired, and anxious?

You are not alone and help could be right outside your door. In today’s technological world, many people, including children, are increasingly living their lives indoors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 20% of children (one in five) and 30% of adults (one in three) in the United States are obese.

Back in 2005 when I was doing my weekly radio broadcast, StarStyle®-Be the Star You Are!® (www.StarStyleRadio.com) on World Talk Radio out of studios in San Diego, I invited author Richard Louv to be a guest on my program with his newest hardbound book at the time, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder. Before the program, we sat in the sound booth lamenting the startling facts that the average child of the day could identify TV personalities yet know nothing about bugs, flowers, trees, or nature in general. Kids were not outside playing as we did as children because they wanted to be plugged in and tuned out. His book and the interview have remained lodged in my psyche as a warning that we don’t want our child to be the last to witness the woods.

Fast forward to 2019 and although nature-deficit disorder is not an official medical disease, children and adults are more alienated from nature than ever before with increased attention difficulties, higher stress levels, poorer body image, obesity issues, and a plethora of physical and emotional illnesses. Pills have been prescribed yet people are sicker.

Could spending more time in nature be the answer to our woes?

Physicians throughout the ages have encouraged people to go outside more. Hippocrates wrote that walking was “man’s best medicine.” To ward off aging, physicians in the Han dynasty suggested outdoor “frolicking exercises”. In the 19th and 20th centuries, people were instructed to visit the mountains to enjoy the “magic airs” or “take in the waters” at a mineral spring to mitigate a variety of infirmities.

Science supports the fact that exposure to natural stimuli, especially gardening, lowers blood pressure, bolsters immune systems, reduces the levels of stress hormones, improves our disposition, increases confidence, promotes healing, lessens inflammation, minimizes obesity problems, and decreases our dependence on pain medication.

Besides having fun, a brisk walk in the park three or four times a week may stave off cognitive impairment for older adults. For kids, the exercise and fresh air of playing will help with maintaining a healthy weight as well as heighten their cognizance of the natural world. Community gardens offer people an opportunity to commune together to grow and harvest fresh food promoting better health.

Nature is a healer. For me, my garden is my happy place, my refuge, and my innovator. I get all my best ideas for my endeavors while outside listening, watching, tasting, feeling, exploring, experiencing, doing, and being. Right outside my office, a beautiful redheaded house finch perches on my gurgling fountain singing his heart out daily. The frogs croaking, the buzzing bees, the wind in the palms, the scent of the star jasmine, the rustling magnolia leaves, the beauty of blossoms, the trickle of the water, the cooing of the doves and the chants of the quail activate my imagination and soothe my soul. The repeated refrains of Mother Nature are my nurture and my medicine.

It won’t be long before physicians everywhere will be writing prescriptions for parks instead of painkillers. Being in the outdoors inspires awe and wonder. We are blessed to have an abundance of open space, meadows, trails, mountains, and local parks where we can experience the tranquility and magic of the outdoors.

It’s summer. Nature is calling. Get up, get out, and welcome the fresh air. Spend more time in a garden or a commons. See for yourself how you feel. Although I’m not a doctor, I am prescribing more parks instead of pills. There is no downside.

“All my hurts my garden spade can heal.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Cynthia Brian’s Garden Goddess Guide for Increasing Health Through Nature

IMPROVE physical skills for kids by getting them to play outside more.
BUY a supersize bubble wand and blow bubbles in the yard.
EAT healthier with a Mediterranean diet loaded with freshly harvested vegetables and fruits.
SOURCE produce hyper-locally at your Farmer’s Market or rural fruit stands if you are not growing your own. Summer is the optimum time for the freshest fruits and vegetables with high nutritional values. Did you know that the USDA defines purchasing local produce and food as within 400 miles of your state? Most food on the American dinner table has traveled between 1500-2500 miles according to the Worldwatch Institute meaning that nutrients and antioxidants have been diminished. If you really want to pack a punch with your food, you have options. Eating in season while growing your own or being part of a community garden is the number one solution. Frequenting farmer’s markets will reduce your carbon footprint and offer fresher alternatives. Or take a drive to a local farming community to purchase freshly harvest crops at road stands. This serves a dual purpose of getting you out into nature as an RX for better health and stocking your kitchen with food that will be delicious and nutritious.
FLOAT bougainvilleas blooms as a creative centerpiece.
SOAK your tired feet in a bowl of warm water filled with healing marigolds and chrysanthemums.
COOL off on a cushion of green moss.
EXPRESS awe at a dragonfly hovering on a reed in the water.
ENLIGHTEN your perspective with a copy of Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv.
PICK chamomile flowers to make a soothing tea. Save some of the seeds to plant.
INSTALL a birdhouse and a fountain to entice the songbirds.
WANDER through a colorful succulent garden to see the various textures and forms.
WONDER at the sight of a flower that you’ve never seen before.
SOAK in the beauty of the delicate blossoms on a silk tree.
GAZE at the clouds and be grateful for your health.
DRINK plenty of water to stay hydrated.
LISTEN to the sounds of our beautiful earth to experience calm.

Happy Gardening. Happy Growing!
