About The Eloquent in the Room

HELLO LOVELY HUMANS AND THANK YOU FOR DROPPING BY!

I'm Rose Cooper, intersectional feminist, female sexual empowerment advocate, LGBTQIA activist, petulant anti Age-Phobia crusader, and celebrator of the human condition.

THE ELOQUENT IN THE ROOM is the umbrella/blanket title for all the 'pointy' projects I conceive, write, perform and produce.

The name, "The Eloquent in the Room" mixes a vivid metaphor with a pun - to encapsulate the sense of absurdity and humour amid the seriousness of how it feels to confront deep seated, misleading beliefs about ourselves and life in general. In a nutshell: COGNITIVE BIAS. 

I'm so happy to be alive to witness the beginnings of The Great Unlearn. White Supremacy and Patriarchy's days are hopefully numbered. We're snapping out of the hypnosis. The reslient human beings whom have always fought oppression, have been passing the torch for a very long time.We have come a long way in recent times. We still have a long way to go.

But...progress now seems inevitable, surely? We can't rest yet. We must stay vigilant.

As a journalist in the 90's, I was eventually chewed up and spat out by the internet when clickbait journalism took over. I turned to other creative pursuits like acting, to give me an outlet, but my urge to be to part of the conversation never really left me. In recent years - the phenomenon of 'content creator' has evolved into an enticing playground for me to come out of exile, and stretch my under-utilised braincells.

Also, in November this year I will turn 60. There's nothing like an impending "BIG 0" to tick that before I kick the bucket, bucket list. Yes, I know that is what the bucket list is, but how many of us REALLY think of it in those terms? Many life events have stood in the way of me fulfilling my creative potential lo these many years;  but there's also just been my lack of confidence.

Well, I'm done with starting and not finishing.
I'm done with not believing in myself.
As I type this and contemplate making this patreon a reality, my anxiety is sky high. But...to coin a phrase from a song I wrote: "I won't let it win".

I could lament not starting this YEARS AGO, but it turned out that doing it NOW has become the entire point of doing it. I'm here just to be that weirdo who didn't let age stand in her way.

The Eloquent in the Room began officially in January 2020 - since then I have treated it like MY JOB. Over two dozen Podcasts have hit the airwaves. My debut single "Everybody" (produced by my son, Riley Holt AKA 'BEUGS') came out in May. The EP should be out in time for my birthday in November. I've also made loads of content on Instagram. I'm not on tiktok - the app scares me at present. But short form, informative/satirical videos is where I think I am to heading in the short term. Who knows what ideas and collaborations will ensue?

Why patreon and why now? Well, up till recently, I had accumulated a modest online community, with a small circle of very supportive followers.  Genuine 'engagement' seemed beyond my reach and to be honest, I was starting to lose heart. Then, on June 20 this year, I received a fabulous upsurge of followers on Instagram, courtesy of someone wonderful, sharing something I made:  Herspective Feminism on Instagram

Because of this, I tripled my following and my comment section and DMs are now beautifully alive with interaction and feedback from people of ALL ages whom are genuinely inspired by my quirky output, and they tell me they are feeling better about THEMSELVES as a result. It's like I've been working in the dark all this time and now someone's turned the light on. OH, THERE YOU ARE, AUDIENCE!

Now is the time. And let's be honest, now is all I have. I'm going at it with all guns blazing - and see what I can accomplish over the next year or so.

I'm seven years from official retirement age. Getting a 'real' job - at this vintage isn't easy - covid lockdown hasn't helped. I'm self taught and doing everything on a shoestring, obviously, life and websites and equipment and software and stuff still cost money. So Patreon it is. The icing on the cake is the community that might blossom from it! 

So here I am, passing the hat around, to encourage me to keep paying it forward via the fruit of my wacky but earnest brain. A small amount of encouragement goes a very long way with me.

My 'tiers info' sets out what kind of 'benefits' patrons receive and all patrons will have a say in how that evolves. ALL PATRONS RECEIVE FREE MP3s of ALL MUSIC that I produce, via a drop box link.

Love Rose

Community is my first goal. I'm a bit superstious about numbers, so I'm putting this out into the universe. If I can get there in a year, that would be totally vindicating. It's up to me to make GOOD CONTENT, obviously.  Any support is great incentive.
