Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
120: James McCrae, poet, meme artist and author of Sh#t Your Ego Says, on ayahuasca, karma and the art of our times
James McCrae is a poet, a meme artist, and the author of the book, Sh#t Your Ego Says. Naturally, this conversation dives into James' thoughts on the ego. We also talk about karma, existential crisis and ayahuasca, poetry and meme artistry, which James is convinced is the most potent and powerful art form of our times. In fact, he has a new book coming out through Thought Catalog later this year that just might be the first in the world to combine poetry and meme art in the way that he does.
We talk about that and all the things, the stories that weave along James’ road from an idyllic childhood in tiny-town Minnesota to getting washed out of New York City on his first attempt to live there, and then seeking refuge on the Puerto Rican island of Culebra. We talk about James’ “dark night of the soul” experience while on Culebra, a sort of existential crisis, and how it was pivotal to his spiritual and creative voice, the one he’s publicly known for now. Among other things. More at humanitou.com.
