About

About Me

While most people know me as the host of the long-running Psychedelic Salon podcast, I prefer to think of myself as a writer. Although I have several books listed on Amazon, most of my work has never been published. But now I am working on a new type of autobiography, the first volume of which I have already placed into the Public Domain and dedicated, by name, to my supporters here on Patreon. So rather than selling my books and accepting advertising for the podcasts from the salon, I'm asking you to become a part of these projects and send me a dollar or more each month so that together we can give these podcasts and books away free for. ( Also see: More About Me - at the page bottom).

How Patreon Works

Most likely already know about Kickstarter, which is essentially a crowd-funding platform for specific projects of all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, that isn't actually a very good fit for some of us starving artists. However, Patreon has now organized a way for patrons of musicians, artists, writers, and other creators to come together and collectively provide their favorite artists with a more steady form of income.

And while a pledge of just $2 a month may not seem like a lot to you, it can actually make a noticeable difference in an artist's life. For example, I do most of the cooking in our family, and so a pledge of $2 a month by you will allow me to take my wife out to eat once a year, and it will give me that night off from my cooking chores.

So these small pledges that are made here through Patreon can really add up. And, BTW, you can always stop or change your monthly payments at any time.


What is a Postmodern Autobiography?

On my 74th birthday I decided that each day during the next 12 months I would write a paragraph or more about something that I've done or experienced along the way in this life. It is now 2018, and Volume 1 of Lorenzo's Chronicles is complete and available for free downloads. Here is a link where you can go to download your own free copy of Volume 1: https://lorenzohagerty.com/freebooks/


Lorenzo studying for the Texas bar exam in 1972.
One of the things that I've realized as I worked on this series of books is that this is a very easy and simple way for all of us to preserve a few little bits about our lives that our distant descendants may one day enjoy reading. For instance, wouldn't you like to know what your great great grandmother did for entertainment? What about your grandfather's boyhood adventures, wouldn't it be fun to know a few of them? And with these little stories, wouldn't you have a better picture of the stories that make up your family history? In our community discussion section I'll be sharing a few tips that I have learned since beginning this process, and hopefully I will also create a spark in you to do something similar.

More About Me:

 If you want to get a quick overview of what I've been up to during my first seventy years, the following 15 minute video will bring you almost up to date. It will also give you an idea of what some of my stories are about. Perhaps it will even spark a few ideas of your own so that you can request a particular story through the polls that I will be periodically conducting here on Patreon.


And if you still haven't had enough of me yet, then there is:

Questions?

As our community grows, I'm sure that there will be some questions that turn into our own Frequently Asked Questions section, which you will find in your community tab.

Thank You!

I want to thank you for taking your time to make it all the way down to the bottom of this page. Hopefully that means that you are interested in joining us. I look forward to welcoming you to our little community.
Goals
430 of 500 patrons
Right now I am still taking a little out of what's left of my savings to make ends meet each month. Once we reach 500 supporters I should be able to stop raiding my savings.
