Now before I begin , for those who are curious about anything about me ,

I strongly recommend people check out my Official websites on

ericacrooks.com ( personal portfolio ) and officialericcrooks.com ( The Official website of The Erica Crooks Show and my comedy , puppetry , cartooning , work ) .

As well as all my social media which I have listed within my blog posts and such.

For those who don’t already know this , I pretty much do everything single handedly so perhaps I might get crucified or murdered some other way just revealing just that eh ? lol

I try to justify what I do as much as I can but sometimes art needs to speak for itself and besides a lot of stuff I do tends to be acting and mirroring the follies of humanity I most certainly observe as a satirist and anarchist.

So a big question I’m going to answer is “ Who does the voices “ in my puppet and cartoon animation videos ?

Well I do.

Perhaps inspiration I got where one person provided all the voices to their film work would be but not limiting to Beavis & Butt-head ( Mike Judge provided most of the voices ) , South Park ( Trey Parker & Matt Stone provided most of the voices ) , the audio sketch comedy albums of Cheech & Chong , Mel Blanc , Sam & Friends ( In the early days of The Muppets – Jim Henson provided all the voices however he had early Muppet performers such as Jane Nebel ( would become Jim Henson’s wife “ Jane Henson “ ) , Jerry Juhl ( later years , would become the Muppets #1 headwriter until he retired shortly after Muppets From Space ) , and Bob Payne https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Bob_Payne

Here’s a thing about Transgender people. Some transgender people already knew they were born in the wrong body early on in childhood and then there are those who become better aware entering adulthood like myself.

In 2008 I came out as Androgyne ( Genderqueer )

And my attraction to Butch Lesbian women made since so in 2013 I realized I am indeed a Lesbian born in the wrong body. But through out my life I noticed I felt comfortable around women more than men.

And even though I’m not 100% feminine , I also additionally identify as non-binary and I’m also non-op by choice ( however I’ve been on Hormone Replacement Therapy since 2014 ) .

So there’s two stories at play. My life as an artist and inspired fan of the pop culture I know and love.

And my life as a Transgender Lesbian Woman.

Now a big question is should Transgender people like myself be doing the stuff that I do ? I answer that very question WITH a question which doesn’t really need an answer as it is self-self-explanatory “ WHY NOT ? “

Furthermore , ever heard of ContraPoints ? https://www.youtube.com/user/ContraPoints

Another great example of an influential Trans Woman online.

So yes folks I am the voice actress behind my work since the beginning ( 1995 / 1999 * 20 years * )

As well as the cartoonist , puppeteer , puppet builder , director , editor , background design , comics , editing , mastering , music composing , etc .

( However some special effects such as fire and explosions I use from the free stuff page on https://detonationfilms.com which according to their legal statement is totally ok . )

And yes I have done live action acting if it was in my drama class or my occasional live action comedy stuff.

( From 2013 – 2015 , I did a dark comedy web show called “ Bad Public Cable Access Television “ https://www.youtube.com/user/officialericcrooks/search?query=Bad+Public+Cable+Access+Television  where I performed these psychopathic self-important idiots with Public Access Television Shows which was loosely based off of my observations during the years The Erica Crooks Show ( my puppet cartoon show ) was on public access television in my local area from 2006 – 2009 as well as my college internship and volunteering in-between and after having my show leave the station due to disagreements of censorship https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEt8mAnwDbI .

There was also a very short lived revival called “ Bad Video Access Television “ which the concept of bad vlog videos on the internet got recently adopted by The Erica Crooks Show’s recent seasons last year and this year ( at the time I write this ) .

There was of course other side things such as experimenting with Alternative Stand Up Comedy in 2015 which I have performed live without the special effects and slightly toned down. Which is just basically me telling satirical jokes and such and some voice acting where in these videos has slapstick and special effects , etc.

https://www.youtube.com/user/officialericcrooks/search?query=live+action

And even during the original run of The Erica Crooks Show I did some occasional stuff as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMPxQoz1YCw

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAEGTeplbZk

I did do a video in 2009 which no longer exists ( at least not from my archives ) called “ The Cooking Show “ where it was just a bunch of explosions and fire special effects matted later in post-production . I GOT IN BIG TROUBLE FOR THAT ONE which resulted to me running away from my abusive father and wicked ex-step mother.

Basically they thought I was an Islamic terrorist for doing that which makes no sense.

And that was all because of two ex-friends who were cyberbullying me and they continue to bring me down and discredit me to this very day which I think it’s because that’s just how right wing supporters think of leftists.

But no folks , I’m not a Muslim . I’m into New Thought / New Age Spirituality.

I decided to stop doing the live action stuff because I felt that perhaps if I continued doing live action voice acting , no one would take me seriously as a Transgender Lesbian Woman.

Similar reasons include The Eric Crooks Show finally changing the name to The Erica Crooks Show in 2016 – present day ( however the website officialericcrooks.com still remains reflecting the original show name , not me . Almost this sense of “ Eric Crooks “ never existed , kind of a Monty Python vibe to it , but the show itself dropped that in 2016. )

However I still stand by doing what I do including voice acting such as my audio comedy.

“ Audio Broadcast of Satirical Comedy “ and experiments such as audio movies which all are a homage to the forgotten media art form known as “ Radio “ but we do occasionally hear of things such as podcasts.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qn84A8PMFMQ

So in conclusion , there’s nothing wrong with a Transgender being a voice acting performer .

And just because I’m a Transgender Woman doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to perform men characters which is simply because of my voice range being born in this body through out my life existence. However I have performed women characters as well .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6mw91BfB-g

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2vHj_XzOCY

So perhaps what I’d call the live acting stuff , perhaps it’s Drag King performing .

My Twin Flame performs as a Drag King lip-sync performance artist at Pride Nightclubs as well as a model ( If she wants to call herself a Drag King model , She does lots of selfies lol ) .

Besides , in this history of acting , it’s always been flexible.

There’s many cisgender women who have performed boy characters in cartoons

From Kathleen Barr as Kevin on Ed Edd N Eddy to Christine Cavanaugh as Dexter in Dexter’s Laboratory .

Even in The Muppets , Frank Oz performed Miss Piggy and Richard Hunt performed Janice .

Even actress Hilary Swank played the whole of tradesman Brendan Teena in the Dramatic Documentary film “ Boys Don’t Cry “ .

And weren’t there a lot of men performing women roles in theater many many many years ago ?

And what would you call films such as this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_One_of_the_Guys and this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/She%27s_the_Man ?

So there you go. Acting as it’s flexibilities.

Just because I have performed a bunch of right wing , self-self-important , narcissistic , psychopathic jerks doesn’t mean I am one.

Just look at the crazy characters Rick Mayall as performed.

Ok philistines , there’s the art lecture for the day. lol

Getting Away With It ( Adult Puppetry and Cartoon Animation )

Blogspot : https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/01/getting-away-with-it-adult-puppetry-and.html

By March 1st pretty much will mark the 10th anniversary of perhaps my most controversial work to date which I called “ The Legacy Sketch “

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68HVRGO0Mlo

It was so controversial that 10 years later , I strongly felt I needed to give yet another

Explanation for my shenanigans .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEt8mAnwDbI

I have even written a book dedicated a huge chunk of it talking about the backlash I received.

https://www.officialericcrooks.com/adults-get-bullied-too.html

Long story short , Narcissistic parents and the police wanted it banned for good.

There was even people who watched my show on public access television who feared that I was going to commit suicide and mistaken the self parodied cartoon as a literal suicide threat.

How stupid ! The whole point was here I was this Transgender lesbian woman trapped in the closet out of fear that my authoritarian homophobic / transphobic father who owns a gun would take my life away. The sketch reflected my fears for the future , my depression of being trapped in the closet as well as complete and utter loneliness and frustration that after 4 years on public access television and the internet my brilliant puppet and cartoon work wasn’t being recognized. Ok so the use of the word “ Brilliant “ is just busting my Ego right there but still , here’s this 21 year old who’s serious about wanting to break into the entertainment industry.

That my friends was what I was feeling deep down in the core of my sinking soul.

Here’s my roast for my ever so happy-go-lucky 21st birthday , Tra-la-la with sarcasm and all.

I am in the pit of hell of misery and just yearn for like minded people , people who understand where I’m coming from , I just want to escape and be with like minded people or no one at all !

https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/01/infp-blog-like-minded-people-or-be-alone.html

That’s the long story short , but the point I want to say regarding this very blog post is this !

IS ARTISTIC EXPRESSION and EXPRESSION THROUGH ART ?

Or am I just some marionette to please other people ?

Sure it’s fun to entertain through the arts , but sometimes satire isn’t funny.

Sometimes satire like a heyoka empath of Native spirituality / New Age spirituality

Is meant to shake up this world , give the ignorant a good hard slap in the face and well wake them up from their ignorance !

10 years later I’m very fortunate that Transgender people are recognized more than they were 10 years ago. Well then again , I lived a very isolated life as I have explained in my book.

https://www.officialericcrooks.com/adults-get-bullied-too.html

But that is just one example of what the arts can do. I tend to do puppet shows and cartooning and cartoon animation independent filmmaking for adults.

They say that it’s probably easier on a business model to do puppetry and cartoons for children. Well starting the summer of 2017 , I went from liberal entrepreneur starving artist to Libertarian Socialist Anarchism / Anarcho-Communism instantly which sides strongly with political satire and my lightworker mission then capitalism could ever do for me.

It was pretty much going back to my roots sort of speak.

And with the internet , someone could become successful and forget about the capitalist middle man of Google Adsense , Facebook ads and the like.

Still , popularity would probably most depend if you aim more at sensors I suppose.

Perhaps as an iNtuitive , I would side with Slayerment agreeing on this issue

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UVTm3twlyQ

As relating to MBTI

https://www.slayerment.com/tags/mbti

So perhaps it’s slightly true.

https://www.slayerment.com/blog/ns-are-smarter-ss-mbti

BUT at the same time ,

Perhaps those who don’t complain about capitalism in the mainstream media as much as I do

Are perhaps the brainwashing product of hierarchy side effects.

http://anarchism.pageabode.com/afaq/index.html

Here’s a thing about me , I’m more for personal expression

Then just being all things to everyone.

https://www.facebook.com/notes/erica-crooks/the-truth-about-entertainment-/1654107041356674/

Even if the audience is just two other people who happen to be friends of mine.

Yes it is true that perhaps children are a lot more accepting of the imagination fictitious world of the puppets and cartoons where of course the adults would blame the artist if something offends them instead of doing their own inner shadow work and asking themselves “ Now why did that trigger me so much ? Is it relating to my dramatic childhood ? Or when my ex cheated on me in my bed as I walked in on them ? Does Trump remind me of my father ?

Perhaps I could possibly go further by saying there could be even a liberating spirit that puppetry and cartoons could express.

https://www.facebook.com/notes/erica-crooks/spiritual-philosophy-of-comedy-puppetry-and-comedy-animation-by-erica-crooks/1652948248139220/

I see puppetry and cartoon animation and even print comic cartoons as a mirror of human life .

I’m into New Thought / New Age Spirituality myself so I don’t think this is the only life that exists.

Perhaps fiction has it’s own universe.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7ay9YX6KKE

( Yes I do side with Chuck Jones on the Space Jam issue , perhaps I should have linked to a clip from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Still it’s better then that crappy Looney Tunes Show and Wabbit. You just can’t beat the original Golden Age of Animation classics.

As I probably already said regarding the political debating issue of Ben Garrison ( PUKE BAG )

This stuff is clearly left wing.

The more right wing people try to look popular if it’s Alex Jones or PragerU ,

The more pathetic they look by stealing left wing methods.

Besides , why aren’t they just going full sided fascists. They know violence is in their nature !

That’s why the Spanish Revolution from 1936 – 1939 ended.

So that in a sense , fiction isn’t that far from reality.

Perhaps it reflects more NP personality types ( MBTI ) than it does sensors.

So perhaps this all brings to mind regarding “ Getting Away With It “ ,

Do I just go WAY TO FAR to the point of bad taste within my art ?

https://www.youtube.com/user/officialericcrooks/videos

The thing about this art form is from how I see it , it’s a form of acting with all of these art forms and methods.

If I performed a disabled character as well as a psychotic social worker ,

Someone could immediately be outraged by that description alone !

To me this has absolutely nothing to do with a “ political correctness / political incorrectness “

Issue . I’m just artistically mirroring what actually happens in real life.

Isn’t that what art is suppose to do ?

That’s the problem with this world. Anti-intellectual philistines !

Conservatives hate it because it doesn’t reflect pro authoritarian / nationalistic / patriotic / capitalist ruling class best interests in keeping people in the status quo .

And liberals hate it because they don’t get satire , they don’t get literature ,

They aren’t mature ! Yes their values are in the right place.

But because they are so sensitive , they can give the left a bad name because they make up the majority.

The conservatives just think the left are a bunch of ignorant crybabies that won’t accept life being fair.

In other words , let me put it a different way.

There’s TWO kinds of John Lennon !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoC83orA4ys

The late John Lennon who fell into deep depression , in denial ,

100% fully brain washed by Yuko No-No … I mean Yoko Ono .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjfU7onCxoo

The John Lennon who simply gave up and just seeking for whatever peace he can have

And just being sadly and unfortunately brainwashed by conservatism .

THIS IS THE JOHN LENNON WE ALL WANT TO FORGET ABOUT !

Just like how all the greats feel into depression before passing away from Tex Avery working on  commercials instead of the MGM cartoons that made him famous to Jim Henson selling everything to The Walt Disney Company but passed away on the very week he was going to sign everything off to them.

Then there was the true Soul Devine John Lennon.

THE INFP John Lennon we know and love.

Maybe he got pissed of living in the sensor world .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCTdKrKepYE

As intuitives tend to do naturally !

https://thoughtcatalog.com/heidi-priebe/2016/03/7-reasons-why-the-mbti-community-is-dominated-by-intuitives/

https://www.slayerment.com/blog/ns-are-smarter-ss-mbti

YES , Let me point that out AGAIN !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vT9yNse2ahw

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_0J6MDld7o

But John Lennon was smart before he through all his knowledge away.

The very post-Beatles John Lennon we all know and love !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDf3vcvaRw4

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfBpVn0ESqA

In conclusion , I feel everything I’m into is related .

Perhaps it’s human liberation.

I don’t know.

Perhaps I need to analyze it further.

Internet Capitalism : Selling Out on YouTube and social media

Erica Crooks Comics 2018 - Social Media Capitalism political satire 1

Internet Capitalism : Selling Out on YouTube and social media

Facebook Link : https://www.facebook.com/notes/erica-crooks/internet-capitalism-selling-out-on-youtube-and-social-media/1762508547183189/

I have made a general blog post about internet capitalism https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIUpMNa1AcE and I may seem irritating for repeating myself , but one of the things that I’ve learned from Bob Proctor is the repetition of good ideas helps people remember it. Bob Proctor is a great intuitive and philosopher , too bad he’s a capitalist. Anyway…

Anyone ever read this article about YouTubers being burned out ?

https://www.polygon.com/2018/6/1/17413542/burnout-mental-health-awareness-youtube-elle-mills-el-rubius-bobby-burns-pewdiepie

And it’s not just them , but people want to make a career out of what they do. And before I became an Anarchist in 2017 , I totally understand where they were coming from.

Even as a kid and teenager and young adult , my life dream for adulthood was to easily earn money doing what I love enjoying in my life. But of course when I became an anarchist , I soon realized that maybe it was contradictory . Here I was this leftist satirist knocking the piss out of dumb down television and the media , but perhaps I was an unsuccessful liberal leaning self employed artist at the time.

As an Anarchist , I strongly suggest for not only the creative community but everyone to do what they can even with their skills , abilities and talents to help make the world a better place.

http://anarchism.pageabode.com/afaq/index.html

( The Anarchist FAQ , I strongly recommend it ) .

I’m very glad that I’m not alone in this vision. And it’s freedom for everyone ! But since I am an artist , today I want to reach out to artists and creative content makers on the internet.

Here’s a few inspirational videos that I most certainly find inspirational.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKoiAXX6KFs ( Non-compete )

https://youtu.be/qiq-PREk2IE?t=804 ( Libertarian Socialist Rants )

“ Under libertarian socialism, the state would be smashed, capital would be completely expropriated, and the commodification of liberty would come to an end. Workers would have full autonomy, free from the coercion of capitalism and the state. This would allow for a volcanic explosion of human creativity and artistry, reaching the absolute pinnacle of free expression and innovation. There would be street art, theatre, music, poetry, film, dance, and perhaps even forms of art we may only discover when our creative capacities are unlocked and expressed to the fullest extent, and they are no longer arbitrarily limited into whatever dreary and monotonous garbage is serviceable to power and capital. Art would no longer be a commodity, a tool for the ruling class to keep people passive, obedient and stupid by promoting a culture of control and domination, but instead it would actually be an outlet for people who have something to express! “ _ Libertarian Socialist Rants

https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/libertarian-socialist-rants-the-case-for-liberty

What we are seeing with artists struggling on YouTube , on the internet , meaning ones who are independent and working outside the Hollywood system struggle to get by in terms of capitalism.

Even Troma Entertainment knows and Lloyd Kaufman tells people that the “ Word of Mouth “ of their fans is the reason why Troma still exists.

Even Troma / Lloyd Kaufman gave advice to help working class indie filmmakers succeed outside the Hollywood studio as best the can .

http://occupycannes.tumblr.com/#category/media-consolidation

Even in Lloyd Kaufman books / DVD series “ Make your own Damn movie “ series.

Lloyd Kaufman is a hilarious ENTP , a great activist for freedom of speech and expression in the arts , and this is the guy who gave Trey Parker & Matt Stone their first big break and own it too “ Cannibal the Musical “ .

I’m EVEN ON troma.com/link next to Cinemassacre ( Angry Video Game Nerd ) .

( I guess they didn’t put up the updated banner ) .

My short film “ When Aliens are Bored “ was shown at TromaDance 2016 .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anLdEKWM4Og

Here’s the old selection right here : https://www.troma.com/news/24200/the-17th-annual-tromadance-official-short-movie-selections-announcement/

Still they were uninterested in a distribution deal when I did whatever I could to talk with them from 2016 / 2017 . But whatever I’m an anarchist so it gives me a reason to continue being an artist as an adult. lol 🙂

But seriously , I see a pattern. Whenever someone becomes famous , THEY SELL OUT !

Hollywood knocks on their door and they get the opportunities that they can get.

And of course it’s tempting . And I don’t blame those who do it .

But what I am trying to say is , as long as the working class and the poor no matter how long and hard they work to get the equipment and things they need , we should be using it to it’s highest good before the government takes away all of our freedom and turning every single free country into a totalitarian one. Don’t think that your legal rights and the constitution will save you for a second. The only time I talk about my legal rights is when I fight off bigots since that’s a language professional jerks seem to understand like a religion or a cult that controls them.

http://anarchism.pageabode.com/afaq/index.html

Just remember what made the 1960s so great in the first place !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otZL-EfgrG4

( lol Fritz the Cat as an Anarchist ! )

I must tell the people

about the revolution!

Revolt! Revolt!

Revolt!

Revolt! Revolt!

Revolt,

you thick-skulled idiots!

You have carried heavy burdens

for the bosses!

You have sweat your lives away

for the bosses!

The bosses!

They ride around in limousines!

Bosses…they’re eating

strawberries and cream ! Come the revolution,

there’ll be no more limousines!

Come the revolution,

no more strawberries and cream !

There he is!

He’s the one who keeps

the bosses in power! He’s the one

who’s holding you down!

The spiked Buddha Capitalism !

The iron thumb on the heads

of the proletariat!

WE SHALL OVERCOME ! “

_ Fritz The Cat ( created by Robert Crumb ( Crumb is a left wing Communist by the way )

As well as The Underground Comix scene  even !

There was something very interesting that I read in the book “

The Simpsons: An Uncensored, Unauthorized History by John Ortved .

“ Gary Panter’s “Rozz Tox Manifesto,” published in the 1980s and influenced by Groening, was a post-Marxian theory of art, which rejected the idea of the artists working against the system. Instead, it encouraged artists to effect change by working within the capitalist environment, thereby attracting larger audiences to their causes. “Popular media are bigger than fine art media. Aesthetic mediums must infiltrate popular mediums. We are building a business-based art movement. This is not new. Admitting it is,” reads Item 10. “Capitalism good or ill is the river in which we sink or swim and stocks the supermarket,” the essay concludes.

I haven’t read “ Rozz Tox Manifesto “ but it does sound like a good read just from this section from this Simpsons documentary book alone . However , most satirical artists already done it this way. Perhaps all the well known ones did.

Matt Groening

Dinosaurs

The Critic

Mike Judge

Trey Parker & Matt Stone

To name a few .

And of course the 1960s movement even though just like independent films , independent music labels seemed at least almost equal to their capitalist competitors .

Today pop music , movies and television isn’t like that so much anymore.

Public Access Television is filled with patriots , local community nationalists and special interest programing.

And the underground arts turned into this liberal community arts thing. Sure they are open to stuff , I had an art gallery in 2016. https://www.facebook.com/officialericcrooks/photos/a.702542416513146/1146066842160699/?type=3&theater

And even a couple of film screenings however they not so successful.

The way how I’ve gone about doing it thanks to the technology of today is do what you can do with whatever you got.

And I forgot to mention about the panel I did at Rhode Island Comic Con in 2015.

I think the problem is , most people are not aware of Anarchism and for me I believe this indicates practically every single political issue we have in the world.

It’s just in the matter of people being aware and doing whatever they can.

If anarchism was mixed in with what the 1960s could have been , we’d have a global high-tech

Version of The Spanish Civil War of 1936 – 1939 ! Hopefully more 5D Earth and Anarcho-Communism in my opinion.

And remember this coming holiday season , do whatever you can.
