iamtheculprit Just remember there may not always be a way out but there is always a way through. This too shall pass my friends. So accept this undeniable entanglement. And start sifting your way toward clarity. Figured I give you guys a break and keep it simple. #briefinboxers #somethingshortandsweetfromaguytallandsour PS the most beautiful woman I know was born today. I love you grandma. It was so great to talk to you. And I can't wait to see you next month! Goodnight guys. I love you! #love #loveoverfear #lightattheendofthetunnel #carryon #christmasstory #jose #hoseB 1y

iamtheculprit You thrash violently in every direction. Trying desperately to escape the prison that is your current state. In the midst of your struggle something softly suggests a course of acceptance. You consciously relinquish your will to the wisdom of the current. And in this moment you no longer need strive. Simply embrace your new captain and behold countless gifts set before you until your river's end.

  •   maggielindsey Is this Florida? 1y
  •   iamtheculprit Hey @maggielindsey Yes it's the Santa Fe river in Florida. Can't wait to go canoeing with you in your neck of the woods :) 1y
  •   domernade ........ @iamtheculprit .... Falling in reverse - self destruct personality. 3:10 his outro kills it. That should prove you wrong about quite some time ago when you said his screams don't hold up. Ronnieforlife 1y
  •   iamtheculprit Well well well if it isn't my old FIFA nemesis. Scream rapping that is a first. lol. Man this guy has been in the news every 2 seconds it seems. Definitely can't knock your loyalty that's for sure. Well even though I don't really dig the music anymore I still got as he would probably put it "mad love" for him. And of course always for you as well kase kase! :) 1y
  •   domernade You can't take down Ronnie f the haters. Even though you're in Florida that doesn't mean you can't lose at fifa online.. Time to get a ps4 upon release. Been too long my friend don't be a stranger 1y
  •   brittestennes @iamtheculprit really nice shot. C: 1y

iamtheculprit Ladies and gentlemen introducing my baby brother Axl Rose Phillips! I am a firm believer that you can learn life lessons anywhere from anything. And sometimes I think that animals are better teachers than people. This little guy is my best friend. He has taught me so much I'm the last month. Patience by destroying everything and shitting everywhere. How to be happy and have fun in every moment even if all you have is a stick. And love, this guy gets it. He doesn't judge he just loves! So all you pet owners take care of your little teachers. And if you are thinking about getting a pet, go for it! Go to your local shelter and save a life. They might just save yours in return. #happy #memorialday #weekend #alllifeissacred #puppy #dog #brother #pet #friend #bestfriend #bff #iusedtosleepnexttoabeautifulwoman #whathappenedtome #bowwowwowyippeeyoyippeegay 1y

iamtheculprit You know the safety briefing before you take off. You know, that one that absolutely no one listens to. "Yeah I get it my seat floats. I just want to go down that damn yellow slide!" Well you should listen to it. Because besides the obvious life saving tips they have some hidden ones too. i.e. They tell you when putting on the oxygen masks to secure yours first before putting on someone else's. That's the perfect metaphor for my rant today. Sometimes in our quest to help others we neglect to take care of ourselves. M.A. martyrs anonymous. lol. But I'm writing this to tell you if you're no good to yourself; you're no good to anyone else. (pretty catchy might have to trademark that) You can't fully be of service if your own needs aren't met. So let's take care of ourselves so we can better take care of others. Me I am treating myself to a much needed va-k. So what are you gonna do for yourself you awesome, rad, beautiful person who totally deserves it? Love, Roy. #love #loveoverfear #friends #family #summer #vacation #lax #airplane #flying #fly #martyr #advice #self-help #positive #pma #treatyoself #takecareofyourself #prettysurethatsnothowyouuseasemicolonjustwantedtofinallyuseone #super #hashtag 1y

iamtheculprit Recently read an article on the dramatic increase in suicide rates. And I don't like it bit I totally get it. It's hard. And sometimes you just want to throw in the towel. I feel that way all the time. But I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel. You just feel this way because your pain level, emotional or physical, has exceeded your ability to cope with it. So you just need to either find a healthy way to lessen the pain or establish a new coping mechanism to mitigate it. Now when your feeling the way you are right now its incredibly difficult to do much of anything but it is possible. And there is help available if you want it. You know in the movies when the guy is hanging off the cliff and the other guy says take my hand. Well this is that movie. Myself and others who care about you are that hand. I know the fear of judgement is stopping you from sharing your feelings but you gotta get past that fear and choose love. Love for yourself so you can stay alive. Ultimately the choice is yours. And I will respect your decision. But I love you and we should just get off this cliff and hang out until we die of natural causes. Because who knows what's after this. What do you say my friend? Love, Roy. #temporaryproblem #permanentsolution #lightattheendofthetunnel #takemyhand #gethelp #why #becauseiloveyou #love #loveoverfear #loveover #suicide #die #death #kill #depression #depressed #bipolar #anxiety #hate #sad #sorrow 1y

iamtheculprit There seems to be a lot of crazy shit going on right now. (when is there not, right?) And it is real easy to say "What the fuck is wrong with this world and the nutjobs who live in it?" But hold on Alice, before you go too far down that rabbit hole. I offer you a challenge. To see the beauty in this life even in the darkest of days. You may have to go through some shit. You may have to dig. But once you find it, it makes everything worth while. So yeah there are people bombing other people. But there are also people running 26 mile marathons then tragedy strikes and they keep running to the nearest hospital to donate blood and save lives. And there are earthquakes and floods etc. but there is also beauty like what I saw on my hike today always on display just waiting to be viewed. Negativity is quicksand. Whatever you resist persists. So don't take the easy road and bum yourself out. Focus on the good, the great, the truly beautiful and spend what little time you have on this rock smiling :) And if you want a more concise and powerful summary of what I just blabbered about google "Patton Oswalt" ;) Love, Roy. #pattonsaiditbetter #whatyouseeisuptoyou #whatyouresistpersists #hiking #hike #beautiful #beauty #loveoverfear #love 1y

iamtheculprit Happy chocolate bunny day! Or happy zombie jeebus day! Or whatever you do or don't celebrate, happy that to you my friend :) I am not feeling very poetic today. But I think there is something important to be said. But one thing I think that we all can agree on is that one word is synonymous with this holiday, and that's RESURRECTION. I just want you to know that no matter how lifeless you feel, no matter how dead inside, you can come back! Every second of everyday is your Easter. Your chance to break free of the dead past and step into the LIFE your living in the present. Love, Roy #dontcallitacomeback #resurrection #easter #jesusismyhomeboy #live #love #renacer #saysitbetter 1y

iamtheculprit Did you miss me!? I missed you! It has come to my attention that a few of you peeps miss my silly little pics and attempts at words of wisdom. So I am pondering coming out of retirement. In today's installment I give you the beauty that is Forest Park in Portland Oregon. And I leave you with this. When are we (myself included) going to wake up and see this world for what it really is? A temporary playground which it truly is. And not this permanent prison we think and act like it is. The bell has rung time for recess! I love you guys! #recessyoucheesybro #mothernatureisasexybitch #portland #stumptown #ripcity #hurryup #heartist #isabouttogoon #loveoverfear #returnoftheculprit? 1y
  •   meowliison Yay!! 1y

iamtheculprit "May your search through nature lead you to yourself" Today I went on the most BEAUTIFUL hike with my family! I love being out in nature because it helps me to connect with what's real. No offense to the religious but I decided a while back that from here on out on Sundays, (or any day for that matter) I was gonna go experience "God". Not just listen to someone tell me what they think I should know about "God". Go be with and experience your higher power whatever the name and whatever the activity it doesn't matter. What matters is the feeling. Connect to your source and bring out that amazing person I know you are inside! Love, Roy #god #source #higherpower #universe #spirituality #family #lover #loveoverfear #hiking #rules #mothernatureisasexybitch 2y
  •   heyyitsmaryyy @iamtheculprit Where is that? So pretty? 2y
  •   heyyitsmaryyy !!'* 2y
  •   globehopper81 Love what you had to say, nature is my god, so I feel like I can relate 2y
  •   maggielindsey Beautiful! 2y
  •   iamtheculprit @heyyitsmaryyy so pretty? The answer is yes ;) its the Angeles National Forest in Arcadia. You should check it out. Just don't jump off a cliff like Kelly did! 2y
  •   iamtheculprit @globehopper81 right on man! I love Topanga and PV if you have any cool trails you know of let me know :) 2y
  •   iamtheculprit @maggielindsey it truly was! It was kind of crowded but very worth it. We went with Steph cuz she's the one who told us about it. She wants to take you when you're down here :) 2y
  •   globehopper81 @iamtheculprit topanga canyon state park, I forget the name of the trail but head right when you get to the trail names and another right when you get to the next trail sign...will get you to a cool lookout point way up top over the beaches....also Abalone cove in pv, hike down during low tide and check out the sea cave..hike over the hill and see another...keep doing the same over the next few hills and you'll see two more sea caves; free parking in front of tiny fire station on your right not far before abalone cove 2y

iamtheculprit As I fall out of my dream. With my head in my hands, I ask you "why this way?" All the while my thoughts tightening their grip around my throat. I plummet with a dying to feel. Then impact, I hit the water so hard the pain causes me to lose direction. I know I am near the surface. But I don't know which way is up. I can't see the guiding light that promises a return to breath. I struggle. I kick. And in the process make such a din that I don't hear you softly suggest "let go." Because you know the air in my lungs will lift me to freedom in perfect time. I now realize I am not chasing a belief but rather trying to unlock a knowing. -Drowning To Life by: Roy Phillips I said it before and I'll say it again, you are not alone. If you are going through hell keep going! The darkest night comes just before the dawn. You are worth the fight! Keep going!

iamtheculprit "Develop an attitude of gratitude." While making over a $120 in under six minutes is rad. Knowing that so many people love and support me is way cooler in my book. Thank you to everyone who came out last night. Even though you made me nervous as hell. I almost pulled an 8mile and threw up ma's spaghetti and thought I was gonna choke on stage in the middle of my rap battle. lol. But seriously seeing you all there really warmed my heart. I am thankful to have such caring, loving and supportive people in my life. And I am especially thankful that my grandma was so cool about letting me tell jokes about her being a pothead and writing for High Times magazine. lol. What are you guys thankful for? Love, Roy #grateful #gratitude #thankful #ididntchoke #love #loveoverfear #loveovermoney #realtalk #friends #family #support #hightimesforoldtimers 2y
  •   ewizabiz Can you put it on you tube again 2y
  •   iamtheculprit I didn't get any video this time. I only have terrible audio of terrible jokes. lol. But I can send it to you @ewizabiz :) 2y

iamtheculprit Come see A at B so you can C. Haha It's on you to figure out which one is which. I'm getting a lot of questions about the deets on my next show. Wow! did I just say deets? Well here you go guys. It's at the Comedy Store on Saturday at 5:30 in the main room. Tickets are sold inside at the door. I'm trying to practice what I excessively preach. I'm gonna face my fear and choose love. I hope you guys join me.

iamtheculprit I know this picture is weak but I needed something so I could rant :) Before we all go off and use today as an excuse to get wasted and blow shit up while screaming 'MERICA! lol. Stop and think about what this holiday stands for and apply it to your life. IN-dependence: you don't need anything OUT there. It's just your mind telling you bullshit lies you need this or that or them to be happy. You have everything you need INSIDE. Just focus on that and the rest will take care of itself. FREE-dom: You are FREE to create whatever kind of life you want when you realize that fear has no power over you. Choose love over fear and create the life of your dreams. You are worth it! Ps this holiday is for everyone in the world not just US. Now get outta here and go have fun...because I just lit the fuse on this M-80! Run! lol. Love, Roy #tattoo #tattoos #fourthofjuly #happyfourth #independence #freedom #MERICA #holiday #for #everyone #July4Everyone #love #loveoverfear #dontloseanyfingers 2y

iamtheculprit Going through my old sketchbook and found this. This is what I used to think REAL love was. I prayed for this everyday until it found me and ate me alive. This my friends is romantic love. While beautiful in its own way it is sadly a very chaotic and fickle thing. A thing that usually does end with death, metaphorically speaking. lol. Don't settle for this clingy neediness. Break free! Go big! Go for the biggest thing there is! Find TRUE love in yourself and then share it with the world. You deserve it.

  •   iamtheculprit @nick_medina_og Jesus! Talk about a silver tongue! lol. I don't even know how to respond to that. I am speechless man. Hands down the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me. So thank you from the bottom of my heart! And just like everyone else I am far from perfect. But I will continue to do my best to bring some inspiration to this world. I know you will too :) Thanks again and take care my friend. Love, Roy 1y

iamtheculprit Are you like me? Do you feel lost? Not sure what's most important to you? Craving a little direction and clarity? Shit I know I am! lol. Well thanks to the Burkans I just read about this technique that might help. Take 25 little pieces of paper. Same size. Write down your 5 most valued relationships. 5 most important aspects of your lifestyle. 5 plans for the future. 5 most treasured material possessions. And 5 characteristics about yourself you like. Spread the pieces out so you can see them all. Then without thinking count out loud 1,2,3, and quickly grab 3 pieces of paper. Crumple them up and repeat until you have 4 left. Focus on these 4 areas of your life, your subconscious chose them for you. What were your guys' four?

  •   maggielindsey Hallie and I did something like this together a few years ago at a healing retreat. I love that you are doing this and I think it is a perfect time for me to do it again and get refocused! 2y

iamtheculprit The boy scoured the Earth from the depths of every valley to the peaks of every mountain. All the while with tears in his eyes screaming at the top of his lungs "where are you!" Finally on his deathbed eyes stinging, voice hoarse, legs weary he laid. As his last breath escaped his chest a little voice inside said "I'm right here and I always have been".

Nashville Roy Phillips
iamtheculprit God I can't wait to get old! I Just met the coolest old guy ever at the grocery store! (not the guy pictured) He said "nice tattoos" and then we started talking and he showed me his one and only tattoo on his forearm. He said he got it when he was 17 at a carnival in St. Louis before he shipped off for the navy. And it only cost him $0.50! He was funny and kind and outgoing and everything I want to be when I grow up. So respect your elders. They are cool as fuck they are just older versions of ourselves. The body is a temporary vessel what's real is on the inside. So don't fear aging or death it can't touch what you truly are. Love, Roy. Ps it is his 83rd birthday tomorrow. Happy birthday sir! #old #guy #tattoo #coolasfuck #realtalk #love 2y

iamtheculprit About to get my chef Royardee on. lol. And I was staring at the burner and wanted to share this. You have to be your own fire. Don't depend on other sources. In this life it's gonna get cold and it's gonna get dark. But that doesn't mean shit to you when you are your own fire. Because you just keep burning brighter and hotter no matter what the condition! ;) I hope you are having a great weekend. Love,Roy #cooking #oratleasttryingto #burn #fire #bright #positive #smile #light #happy #within #weekend #joy #love #iamyou 2y
