What's The Matter With Me? Podcast

I have multiple sclerosis, trigeminal neuralgia and I made this podcast to share what I’m going through.

Welcome to What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast Season 7. Episode 31, “God Of Thunder”


The provided text seems to be a collection of various unrelated topics and updates, including shoutouts, a fundraiser for KFJC, an art acquisition by SFMOMA, the outcome of a baseball game, discussions about tucking in a t-shirt, an exploration of self-sufficiency, cooking, and conversations about toxic behavior with your son.


Shout Outs

  • Shoutouts to Rocky who dug the face tattoo idea
    • Remember to use the drawer.
    • Repeat: do not get a face tattoo, just a drawer full of scraps of paper with tattoo ideas written on them
  • Shouts out to Max Level, standing at the edge of an inky black ocean holding a torch aloft

“SFMOMA’s investment marks a historic milestone in the contemporary art world,” said Ginger Shulick Porcella, Executive Director at Creative Growth Art Center. “It has been far too long that art institutions have ignored or underrecognized artists with disabilities. These talented creators can no longer be relegated to the category of ‘outsider artists’ as they firmly occupy the walls of museums worldwide.”

Art School Job Prospects

  • The person who named cymbals had a really cool job
  • Do you think the hiring manager had other well qualified candidates?

Keep your shoes on

  • Tucking in a t-shirt in doesn’t make it look any more formal
  • If you are in my family, it makes you look like a pumpkin who thinks that a tucked in t-shirt is appropriate to wear to an event that it clearly is not
  • Otherwise, you wouldn’t tuck it in your silly t-shirt.

Everybody needs directions

  • Even Jesus Christ was not perfect

God of Thunder

  • I was the drummer from Def Leppard for Halloween
  • Tight reviews: one reviewer was 5’9″ 230 lbs “pretty sure my junk was showing”
  • The tights fit, and I don’t think my junk was showing

Exploration in Self-sufficiency

  • I took the kids to school by myself, picked them up, fed them, bath, and bedtime
  • So my wife could go to San Diego on a work trip

Toxic messaging

  • Talking to my son about the imagined bullies in middle school
  • Trying to introduce the concept that making fun of a adisabled person is a toxic behavior, and as he gets older it’s going to be important to see that clearly
  • I am not at all sure that will help him
