I identify with many empaths including ( and probably not limited to ) crystal child adult , indigo , starseed , old soul , lightworker , twin flame , INFP personality type , Transgender Lesbian Woman , Androgynous Femme , Pisces , etc

But I also identify as a Heyoka . A Heyoka is a mirror empath which term is most familiar with the native american spirituality and culture. Yes on my mother side I’m part French Canadian Native American. So wonder I love Dreamcatchers so much. 🙂

Anyway , Heyoka’s spirits are appreciated because they think outside the box , they come from a culture where criticism even if it’s harsh is appreciated with gratitude to help people’s personal and spiritual growth. Heyoka’s are known as the most powerful empath ever and perhaps are known as the satirists and even the “ Anarchists “ of spirituality.

The sacred clown as well.

Pretty sweet eh ?

Well you know how hierarchical society is. It’s a world that needs love but people live in hate and fear. The liberals are very sensitive to intellectualism and trigger warnings aren’t going to help and conservatives live in hate and fear and feel the most comfort in not only fascism but being capitalists ( illuminati ) ruling this world using hate and fear … consciously or unconsciously …. Yeah they need to go to a psychiatric hospital !

So if love is what people need , why won’t they accept it ? Perhaps realism is such an ego shell to protect people from hurt.

If your a lightworker and your doing the best you can to treat them with equality and peace and they just fire off negative stuff at you…. 

You need a good laugh.

Satire can help Anarchism build the new world in the shell of the old , Satire is deep spirituality because I know as a Twin Flame in Ascension working towards Union IT CAN HURT BIG TIME but we learn to get back on the ball of spiritual alignment and become better people going through it … yeah not in The Secret right ? Someone can mention Heyoka on their website but when they are faced with one… They don’t recognize one of their own.

But perhaps it’s only funny to those who are awaken to the truth.

It’s like America has Mad Magazine and South Park .

The UK Had Spitting Image , Alternative Comedians ( Rik Mayall and The Young Ones / Hale & Pace / Monty Python’s Flying Circus ) and of course Ian Hislop ( Spitting Image / Have I Got News For You / Private Eye Magazine )

France has Charlie Hedbo and Les Guignols De L’info

Even my satirical works , it can either make someone laugh with me or make someone vomit.

Kind of like that time I had that film screening in Providence RI where someone walked out without asking for a refund.

This very complication of the best of my work which was technically edited to a PG / PG-13 level still SHOCKED people. This one person was like “ Oooohh That Erica Crooks , how disgusting ! For a Transgender Woman … I expected better from her ! “

The projectionist didn’t bother saying what he thought. Perhaps this guy who wouldn’t bother giving it a compliment pretty much didn’t like it. Ironically it was the same projectionist from my first screening in 2015.

When one is a satirist , the big aspect is you want to encourage people to think.

American culture to me is so superficial and philistine. Art museums reactions are all about “ Oooh I like this painting because it’s beautiful . Oooh I don’t like this painting ( and doesn’t bother explaining why )“

I feel in an Anarchist Society , things like this would be appreciated.

Perhaps perceptions of Spirituality if any who reject the idea might find something fascinating in the phenomenon wonder since their lives would be better under Anarchism , perhaps people might me open minded to it more like how Native Americans are about they Heyoka Empath.

Getting Away With It ( Adult Puppetry and Cartoon Animation )

Erica Crooks

Getting Away With It ( Adult Puppetry and Cartoon Animation )


Erica Crooks

Facebook :

Tumblr :

Blogspot :

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

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

Explanation for my shenanigans .

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

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 !

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


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.

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

As relating to MBTI

So perhaps it’s slightly true.

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.

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

Then just being all things to everyone.

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.

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.

( 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 ?

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 !

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

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

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 .


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 .

As intuitives tend to do naturally !

YES , Let me point that out AGAIN !

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

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

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.

Puppetry vs Animation vs Cartooning vs Writing vs Radio Comedy ( Pros and Cons )

Puppetry vs Animation vs Cartooning vs Writing vs Radio Comedy  Pros and Cons Erica Crooks

Puppetry vs Animation vs Cartooning vs Writing vs Radio Comedy Pros and Cons Erica Crooks

Cartoons , Animation , Comics , Comedy , Puppetry 


 ( Pros and Cons )


Erica Crooks

For those who’ve seen my work , I’m quite a multi-talented artist aren’t I . Lol

But putting joking Ego aside , lol

I’ve been interested in this stuff for quite a long time.

The Erica Crooks Show alone will turn 20 next year.

All that I say here is from personal experience as an independent filmmaker and multi-talented artist who’s never worked for Unions , Managers , Agents , Mainstream , or anyone else.

And this also comes from someone who’s invested her own money , time , blood , sweat , tears , continuing to perfect her craft all the time , never a competition date.

Ok lets go …


Pros :

_ Basically it’s making a doll look as cartoony as possible.

In a way , perhaps it relates to the origins of CGI today.

But it’s organic and at times can look more real than CGI characters at times.

It’s filmed in real time , and they can interact with humans .

Also it’s performance art , it’s acting , it’s live action animation. 

So in a way it relates to all three and as low tech CGI you can possibly get.

Plus also there’s certain things that are funny about puppets and their movement which you don’t need to think about and it’s just improv , shaking and running insanely from the stomach upward as well as floppy arms for example.

Con : 

_ If your trying to create a large cast of characters like The Muppets , 

It’s expensive.

_ Puppets wear out and need to be rebuilt / repaired . 

_ How long it takes to build depends on the quality in how it looks / how it works / what’s your budget like.

_ Puppeteering is just like exercising . When you haven’t puppeteer in awhile , your arms are going to hurt less than 5 minutes. Some might develop joint pain or even needing to go to surgery relating to how much you’ve done it for. As well as how heavy the puppet is.

_ Cartoon Animation is unfortunately a lot more popular in the eyes of the puppet no matter how great it looks as puppets still get the “ kids stuff “ discrimination . Cartoons and Animation did until more Adult Cartoons came about during the 1990s.

Cartoon Animation ( 2D )

Pro : If you got the skills , you invested in lasting computer equipment , you can pretty much do ANYTHING ! 

Con : Unlike puppets , you have to think about EVERY SINGLE LITTLE MOVE , even if you improved on the audio soundtrack. It’s like cleaning the mess while making a mess.

Animation is about thinking is slow motion , every frame matters because it creates the movement on film. Also unlike puppets , it’s hard to improvise during the performance . Perhaps it’s more of a planned and structured improvisation .

There are ways you can do lip-sync automatic sort of thing but I’ve tried that out from 2011 – 2012 , and it came out kind of crappy.

But technology changes.

Also digital puppet animation / bone animation can speed things up if you want something faster.

But of course nothing beats the quality of hand drawn 2D animation.

It just takes time.

That’s why the Entertainment Industry / Animation Industry always has overseas animation studios do it for them.

Comics :

Pro – All cartoonists pretty much know that this is the fastest way to produce someone of quality , that’s pretty much why editorial / political cartoons exist.

_ Comics are easy to distribute. Remember The Underground Comix movements in the 1960s ?

_ It’s called Comic Con / Comic Book stores for a reason and it somehow gets video games and pop culture stuff in as well.

And don’t forget the Cosplay .

_ People who can’t hear can enjoy it just as much as those who can hear.

Con : Some people prefer watching videos instead of reading.

There’s some people who can’t read well or at all.

Some people don’t even bother reading at all because they feel that it takes longer than watching a video even though it can be roughly the same time 

Depending on their reading skills.

_ Sometimes film creates the illusion where you forget it’s a cartoon . Then again comics can do that too.

Audio Comedy

Pros : You can do pretty much everything just like animation. It’s pretty much literature acted out. 

_ Before television , there was radio shows and movies.

_ Cheech and Chong albums and 1950s novelty comedy is hilarious.

_ Spitting Image and I Love Lucy were inspired by radio shows

_ Blind people can enjoy it.

_ Same benefits as music has.

Con :

Probably the least popular media form EVER which is why it automatically is installed in most cars now a days because people would rather listen to iTunes , Spotify , YouTube Music , Pandora , Online Radio , Amazon Prime , etc

_ Can’t see it.

_ People’s attention span would lose interest or not have any to it at all.

_ Public Access Television is more available than a mainstream version unless you got a college radio station or something.


Pro : The cheapest , fastest , media art form someone can produce.

_  Like drawing , It can even be written on a napkin with a pen.

_ Anyone can do it. But creativity can show depending on how well you express yourself with it.

Con : Typing skills might be a requirement depending on how much you write.

_ Sometime voice dictation writing is inaccurate.


_ Your friends will hate you for writing your emails and messages to them like works of literature and tell you to KNOCK IT OFF WITH BOMBARDING THEIR IMBOX ( personal experience ) .

  • Pro : My Twin Flame told me she didn’t mind be bombarding her inbox honestly and not sarcastically back in 2016 before Twin Flame Running went out of control. 🙂 lol 😛

All the above


_ I live creativity and it’s my thing.

All the Above CON :

_ Not everyone can relate to me. Oh well. MORE FOR ME ! lol 😛
