Moosetonic is a strange name for a skilled individual. I’ve been following her on Twitter for some time, but only last week was did I dive into her content. It’s grade A! The first horse outta the gate reined her personality. Sometimes she’ll just give you this look in the middle of her tingle extravaganza, and it’s quite obvious she’s cheesy and fun. I like cheese, but I love fun.
“Hello my little Moose-leaks, my little tonic water’s.” – That’s what it sounds like she is saying at the beginning of her video. Now that I have decided to write it down, I have been giving thought to if that’s really what she says. I thought about asking her what she says, but then I thought it would be more fun if I guessed, because I’ll almost certainly write about Moosetonic again someday, and I will come back around to this when I speak on her again. Besides moose-leaks I can only think she would be saying moose-lings. The latter probably makes more sense, but I like the former.
So, for three years prior to my writing the blog which you are reading blog, I wrote [and still write] a stream of consciousness blog. For this ASMR blog, I make a real effort to keep focused, and not veer off into my natural state of streaming consciousness. Sometimes however, you gotta talk about the here and now.
Sitting in a coffee shop, somewhere on earth, two people walked in; two kids walked it, but then again, I’ve called 45 year-old men “kid.” It’s not about your stature, it’s about your status [you gotta say that with the long eI sound, like in: Data]. All kids are people, but not all people are kids, that’s all that I’m saying. Regardless, two of them just came into a coffee shop I am sitting at – writing to you from, and they sat down behind me. I caught a vibe, and so I turned around and said “Can I ask you guys a random question?” The bf said: “sure.”
“Have you ever heard of ASMR, and if so, what do you think of it?” I continued.
“We had an ASMR club at our school,” said the gf.
“Whoa! Okay…h o w many people were in it?”
“Cool! Uhh…I write a blog about ASMR…” and from there I proceeded to talk a little bit about my blog. What’s important is that I got to follow their ASMR club on Instagram, and even though the club hasn’t been active in 59 weeks, I still think it is important to speak on the fact that it existed. How many other ASMR Clubs are out there? Never enough, I say!
Let’s keep drinking the Moose punch
Is it just me, or does she seem like the kind of person that will appreciate my joke about drinking the punch? It’s one of those over-ironical jokes, because obviously I would never suggest you drink the punch, but I would also never suggest someone that actually reminded me of Jimmy Buffet. For the most part, punch is a delicious, and that’s the Moose punch of which I speak, but I also think it’s important to talk about history in an objective sense so we can learn from it.
I never do drink punch when it’s offered at a party, but I will always drink the tonic. In fact, Gin and Tonic was my drink of choice for a long time. Around 2012, I went into a bar and I drank seven dbl gt’s in an hour, and I’m not talking kombucha.
That was one of the experiences that helped shape me; I remember thinking: “Man, I don’t even want to be at this bar, all these people…I don’t understand them. Do they really enjoy talking to each other? Is this what life is all about? Am I missing something?”
As it turns out, I was missing something. I was missing adventure, and meeting new people, and San Francisco. I was missing that I need to surround myself with like-minded individuals if I want to succeed in regards to my goals. Surrounding myself with like-minded individuals still isn’t an activity for which I have hit my pinnacle.
I was missing the point of life! You gotta do what makes you happy! If 25-33% of your time is not filled with activities that bring you pleasure, it is my theory that you are not lending your mind enough of the tools it requires to succeed.
This might be the hardest I have ever digressed upon this blog.
Moosetonic’s ASMR is allowing my mind to work at it’s full capacity, and when working at full capacity these words are born of an involuntary action. I suggest you listen to Moosetonic yourself, and take some time to meditate on what makes you happy. You should be able to feel the palpable insanity of passion, but also the stress-free leisure of confidence. If you don’t know what makes you happy, it’s never been a better time to sit and think about it. With so many people feeling obligated to stay inside, I am sure there are more people working on the existential questions this year. For this reason, I believe it will be an easier vibe to catch: the vibe of a healthy mental state.
Drinking alcohol doesn’t make me happy, but talking about the punch does.
Being yourself is the only option.

I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict , but I am not a qualified addiction counselor. To help other alcoholics/addicts achieve sobriety, I have created the mantra’s below. Although I call them “steps,” I believe that all four mantra’s should be recited in concurrence.
When the urge to drink alcohol or use drugs comes upon you, I suggest reciting these four steps, and then implementing an activity to “kill time” until your urge to use drugs/alcohol is less intense. I suggest you use ASMR videos to “kill time”
Good luck, My Friend
Below are the steps of admittance required for using The ASMR.Community Sobriety Program [ACSP] successfully.
Step 1: “Sobriety is a choice, and it is up to me to make the right choice.”
Step 2: “Not everybody will be able to achieve sobriety, but that knowledge does not prevent my success regarding sobriety.”
Step 3: “The urge to imbibe (substances that I know will prevent my success) is finite. Sometimes the urge will exist, sometimes the urge will not exist.”
Step 4: “Sobriety is not the same for everyone. Success is.”
I believe the steps I listed above are a complete, non-exclusionary list of all mental admissions needed to achieve your goals regarding sobriety.
Everybody’s definition of sobriety is different, but everybody’s definition of success is the same.
