    Turn up Tuesdays

    in Entertainment

    "A frank, sometimes-disturbing debut novel that highlights the darkness that can lurk within picture-perfect families"-Kirkus and they say, "...the story's brutal emotional honesty is what keeps it moving."-Kirkus Reviews.Kelly Flook Has left no stone un-turned in telling her story because she wanted to help alleviate some of the pain and shame suffered by the 39 million Americans sexually abused in the 20th Century alone (1 in 4 boys and 1 in 6 girls). As well, Huff Post printed Teresa Huizy the Exec. Director of National Children's Alliance saying 315,000 children were reported sexually abused in the US last year. At that rate there will be another 3 million plus more abused in ten years. 


    (In her own words) I did everything society said to be happy. I got the degrees: BA, a Montessori degree, and an MA. I married the “right” men who could “give me respect and boost my confidence.” First an attorney. Had one daughter. The marriage ended after seven years because of his affairs. Eight years later, my second husband was a cardiologist from Virginia. We had a bi-coastal, whirlwind coke-induced love affair for eighteen months. The marriage lasted six months. I did things I thought might help society. I sent women to London for abortions before Roe v. Wade. I was active in the peace movement to stop the Vietnam War. I started NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) with my first husband. I had the right jobs: I wrote and produced for PBS. I won numerous awards. I wrote screenplays to shine the light on inequities. None of this alleviated my pain, shame and suffering from the childhood beatings and sexual abuse that led to my self-abuse. My healing journey began withShhhh!

    Independent Everything: LIVE with PsykoMusik's Master Free Agent

    in Music

    Free Agent, born in Baltimore Md, has always had a unique ear for sound. Her opportunities to travel in and out of the United States has allowed her to become very eclectic. For quite some time in her earlier years she wondered what it would be like to actually create music of her own. 


    In 2010, upon meeting Voice, Free Agent believed in the talent that her new friend possessed. One day when accompanying Voice in a studio session, she decided to just doodle some words on paper. Later during the recording process Free Agent was asked to share what she wrote. It was "FIRE", she was then asked to record it and that was her first collaboration of so many more. I guess you could say the influence of Voice and her lasting thoughts of making music has become apart of her life. 


    Free Agent has become primary support for the movement that Voice A True Gogetta is building, thus becoming Co-Owner of the company.  


    On another note; Free Agent has the skills and talent to write screenplays and video treatments, edit as well as video record and she takes part in each and every video delivered from The PsykoMusik Team.
