The Corpsepaint Show Interview of Bruce Gerencser

corpsepaint show

I recently had the privilege of appearing via Skype on The Corpsepaint Show.  Hosted by Satan, The Corpsepaint Show primarily covers the heavy metal music scene, so I can easily understand them wanting to interview a metalhead such as myself. (You should be laughing right now.)

I had a delightful time speaking with Satan. What follows is the audio of the interview. If you want to view the video, please go to The Corpsepaint Show’s website and click on the December 25, 2016 video.

    I haven’t seen all of it yet, but what caught me in the beginning was this: if you make the wrong choice, you will go to hell! So choosing the right thing always becomes a huge thing: far bigger than really needed.

    I sometimes have a paralysing fear of failing and this may have something to do with it. There have been other moments in my life, when I felt the stakes were extremely high, whether or not they truly were I cannot be sure, but these moments make choosing and decision-making much harder than needed. There is an ominous feeling of disaster about to strike when you inadvertly choose the wrong option….

    God’s punishment of say Ananias and his wife, and other stories like it, were also part of it for me. I was afraid God might kill me if I did something really bad; he did so often enough in the Bible…

    It makes my heart bleed for the fearful person I was; such a young girl with so much fear in her life of actual people but also of all these invisible beings. I’m still quite an afraid person but at least I don’t have to fear hell, God, Satan, demons etc. anymore and that helps.

      Sorry to hear of the horror of your childhood… I know the place well. Fear of falling, eh? Do you dance? Strike up some of your fav old music and just try to be in your body in a comfy way. I do this sometimes, though I am not any kind of dancer; just a legend in my own living room as the amazing Annie Lennox says…. My best wishes for you to fly in your dreams, to be aloft and free and THERE! I have had a few of those wonderful times, dreaming flight gliding over fields and trees. See you there! (Careful to observe VFR when aloft!)

        Lol, I do love flying in a dream.

        I have this thing that when a dream really gets too scary I wake myself up to escape it. Sort of a safety mechanism I think 😉
