Description

Sometimes, it's good to hear about the struggles and trials of others, especially if they've come through on the other side. This is such a podcast.

Host Ele Nichols (Artist/Writer/Gender Confusionist) will recount some of their own misadventures and how they made it (or are making it) through.

In this entry, we’re uncovering RAMPANT ELECTION FRAUD! Oh wait, there wasn’t any, just the loud jackass who is bilking his cult for hundreds of millions of dollars from his persistent lies. If Trump is anything, he’s a decent Con Man. I just wish he wasn’t affecting our families and lives with his agenda. Even with him gone on January 20th, he seems to found away to still screw with our democracy for the years to come. This is a cluster f***, lets get into it.   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, we’re breaking the silence. Opening your mouth can cause a lot of problems and often has consequences, but it is the only way to be heard and initiate change. I have this problem in my life where I will keep my mouth shut to keep the peace, or to avoid unnecessary conflict. Looking back, I can see all the pain and loss it’s caused. Had I just spoken up, and the earlier the better, I could have prevented so much damage. So let’s dare to speak and risk what may come next.     Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, I’m offering no discounts or specials on my time and talent. Everyone wants a bargain, that includes you as a person. Why get you at full price when they can bang you around and convince you that you’re only worth a fraction? Marc Bernardin said it best, “Be humble, but let motherf***ers know.” I whole heartedly concur. If you don’t, you’ll not just get paid like shit, but you’ll be treated that way too. Worst part, it will spread to every part of your life. I know this because I lived this and I’m here to help you avoid those pitfalls.     Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, I’m taking back ground. After a long period of losses, the end of 2020 is actually turning into a win for me personally. At the beginning of this entry, I talk way to long about a Hot Toys 1/6 Scale Batman Returns that I sold back in March/April, but repurchased at the end of November. It’s important though, because it was an anchor, a reminder of who I want to be as a person. When you don’t always have the supportive voices you need in your life to be the best version of yourself, you have to be your own support system. Totems can help in that goal and I just bought back mine. Beyond that, I also talk about the recent Harry Styles controversy where he modeled in Vogue in a series of dresses. Of course this offended a lot of fragile oppressive voices, which I think is a good sign that we’re doing something right. Carving your own path, breaking norms, confronting what it means to be normal, it’s all covered here.     Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, we won the 2020 US Election by voting out TRUMP! A hard, long race, which took a week to get the results, but it’s over…or is it? In the song Master of Puppets by Metallica, the line, “Blinded by me, you can’t see a thing,” describes the scenario cryptically well. Though they were singing about drugs, the Cult Of Trump works in the same way. Instead of a spiritual messiah that they can’t see, hear,  or touch, they’ve traded in for one who they can and one that promotes an utterly opposite view of their one time savior. They live for every word he speaks, even willing to lay down their lives for him. So how do you combat that? Come January 20, 2021, Joseph R Biden will be our next president, but for millions of American’s, they’ll do everything in their mental and perhaps physical capacity to deny that. Let’s talk honestly about what we need to do in the States to prepare for this new era.   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, I’m recovering from a month long battle with Covid-19. Yeah, it sucks as you can imagine. I unfortunately have an underlying condition of Bronchitis, so there was some scary moments these past few weeks. To top it off, I ended a long term friendship, that was pretty devastating. Oh, and I turned 37 on October 11, 2020. This all sounds pretty depressing, but during these trials, I discovered a few things about myself and about these amazing, wonderful people who reached out to me to let me know I was loved and cared for. So despite the bad, I’m feeling really good about life and where things are going. Lets talk about that.   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, I’m ready to go home. Two months in Orange County, CA, and now I really know where I want to be and what I’m willing to do to get back there. Strange enough, I might even be able to move about 50 feet from where I lived in my old Hollywood neighborhood. Maybe I’m wrong, maybe this too will only be a temporary home as well, but at least it’s a good place to start if nothing else.   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, we’re creating a new religion…sorta. Whether you believe or not in a god or supernatural power, you can’t ignore the power and force that seems to be behind those who do. I’m not of any belief or faith, but I do believe in the human minds capacity to do extraordinary things, including self-delusion. What if, bare with me, you could manufacture that same driving force? Can we manage to create a fully synthetic belief system that gives us the same benefits as believers, minus the lack of critical thinking skills and abhorrent laws and Bronze Age morality? Whether we like it or not, decisions made on the right affect all of us, so we can’t have a “live and let live” attitude anymore. Maybe it’s time to even the playing field…   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, we’re gett’n smarts!

In this entry, I’m revisiting my f#%&ed up, sexually repressed childhood, courtesy of my return to Orange County, CA. Something happened where I tripped into a regressed state, reminding me of the source of my romantic troubles. We don’t stop there though, we have to look at the current state of children being raised in similar oppressive Christian homes. Yay. Who they let be parents these days…     Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, I’m camping! Let’s just call it that and not that I’m crashing on my aunt’s couch until September. Oh, and I’m in Orange County, CA for the mean time, which I have to say that I’m very motivated to get out of here. So this is a brief update about where I currently am mentally and physically, but also where I’m going.     Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.

In this entry, we’re self quarantining, keeping out of the city and hunkering down in the Fortress of Ele-itude (It’s a rental). I recorded this after a week in voluntary isolation, so I’m loopy, but I’m here. I’m glad I’m in Los Angeles and not Florida right now, because I would probably go down to the beach and start bean bagging (not sure what those non-lethal weapons that shoot bean bags are called) those self involved idiots, but I digress. Let’s just try to stay healthy and not spread this virus to anyone else we love.   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, I’m calling you out, true believer. I often have my time as a Christian dismissed as a limited experience, often discounting or discarding my reasons for walking away. Let me be clear, it wasn’t limited. If my words cause you to question your beliefs, that’s a you problem. As for me, I’m not going to stop talking, nor am I going to tap dance around and say, “But this isn’t ALL Christians.” I’ll just say this: Silence is taken as Complicity. Outside those “extreme voices”, there’s a lot of crickets. Let me fill in quiet and blow some shit up. :)   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, the past came back to me in the form of 2 red tail lights on a desolate street in the pitch darkness of night. I watched 2 people I love drive away, but the pain wasn’t from watching them go, it was from the previous time I watched the most important person in my life leave me behind.  It’s clear to me now how much work I have to do to get better mentally and physically. We’re not running away anymore, we’re pressing in and confronting our demons. Let’s turn on the headlights, hit the open road, and have a talk.   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, I finally sat down and watched Contrapoints’ videos, and I feel inspired and motivated to make the dive into my own videos and productions. Plus, she is hot, mentally and physically. Anyway, I’m still in the process of moving, still figuring out what I want my future to look like. It’s a bit of a ramble, but when is it not? Let’s get inspired to take on the future, shall we?    Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, we’re planning a heist. The target: Valentine’s Day. The goal: To steal it and turn it into a holiday that includes everyone. Let’s face it, Valentine’s is on the decline. Has it really been the holiday of love and romance or rather heartache and disappointment? With conversations about sex and relationships being derailed by religious, uptight, fear-mongers, it’s more important now than ever that we claim February 14th for those who want to live in a world where these issues are not demonized, instead praised and celebrated. We need open discourse (perhaps intercourse?), we need a holiday that celebrates our human nature. We don’t need to ditch the heart shaped boxes of chocolates and roses, but rather add components that work to serve everyone in these concepts of love, intimacy, and sex, and not exclude people because they’re lack of a romantic relationship. Put down the red and pink cupcakes you bought at the grocery store BRENDA! You don’t need to binge through your depression, it’s time to pull off a caper, lover. Slip off those Spanx and let’s talk dirty. I promise I'll be gentile.  Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, we’re talking about keeping your mother &%$#ing word. It might be seen as old school, but let’s scrap this idea that everything we did in the past was wrong. If you make a commit, be committed to keeping it. It’s a pretty simple philosophy, but one that seems is going into extinction. How many times have you or someone you know been “ghosted” on a date or an appointment. More and more it seems like people couldn’t give a flying &%$# if they waste your time. To put this into context, it’s like someone reaching into your pocket, taking money out of your wallet, then walking away as if nothing happened. Money however is something you can earn back. Once time is gone, it’s gone for good. We’re allowing too many of these scenarios to become common place in our society and it’s time we pretend like it’s no big deal. Let’s call it what it is: Grand Theft Time-O…we’ll work on that name.   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, I’m conducting a yard sale of my life. Some how I’ve managed to unclench my fingers around my most precious possessions and am moving on. A new chapter in life awaits and I’m cutting all the anchors that has held me back. However, I’m not just getting rid of things, but preconceived notions, commonly taken routes, and anything that might work for most, but just not for me. Just because the calendar changes doesn’t mean we do, unless we want to. I don’t know about you, but I’m determined to make this decade something truly spectacular.   Help Support This Podcast: https://patreon.com/elenichols   Website: http://houseofele.com Store/Art: http://eluded.ltd Instagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenichols Email: info@elenichols.com   Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.  If you want to hear more of their incredible music, go to www.DamnTheWitchSiren.com.
In this entry, it’s the end of the year, the end of a decade, and the end of an era. In the year 2020, are you still waiting for permission to live your life? I know I have, still a product of years and years of indoctrinated upbringing. You would think someone like myself who has veered off the safe path so many times in my life wouldn’t be waiting for marching orders from some authority, but here we are. Waking up everyday, choosing to make decisions for your future, it’s harder than you’d think. I’ve never been one to run away from a challenge and I don’t think you do either. Let’s go into 2020 and live a little but more curiously.
