Compass Of Time

Aristotle introduced us to the basics of the singular flow of time like a river flowing from point A to point Z. Fancy that maybe Earth is flat & it is time only that moves in a globular fashion? Who is to say a minute is a minute; that a life spans 100 years not 100 seconds? It’s not so much that time does or …

I Say Meme You Say Meme

Nowadays we are online – Not public, not private, somewhere in between. Can we say “Virtual Reality” à la Jamiroquai. A typical spontaneous persona will engage a community. We differ considerably from when spontaneity did not require a methodical dog-eat-dog spite for whom you make your opponent out to be. Which is yourself. “What’s another word for Thesaurus?” – Steven Wright When the average person …

HEROIX

I love casting against type -not “type-casting” by definition – to sound delinquent wearing a grimace – I go against the grain. I go against the flow like salmon. I go against the norm demolishing, smashing, squashing the odds into gelatinous pudding. Not to be a delinquent but I’m cringe-worthy; performing unexpected, enigmatic plays; apt to aspire impressionists, receive rave reviews. Theater (not the silver …

You Ain’t Need No Approval

Is America’s divide culture or race? Are culture & race different? If no, then according to the theory of elimination, one does not exist. To quote Stacey Dash, “Social media replaces evil with good within the existing social order of political & economic culture. The dissemination of knowledge via social media is modifying us as a whole; certain economic adjustments & social changes are imperative …

It Takes A Brothel

These days, taking sides on a subject is unfeasible unless you desire to be torn by an opposing party, doggedly passionate about her own views. How united do we really stand? What stand should we take as Americans? Accept the vapid ideology that fear-mongereriner Trump is just one single joke. Matriarchy? I don’t comprehend how to say this without infringing turbulence upon the nerves of the …

Private Is To Public What Privacy is to Publicity

What are we doing online & why does it matter? I am the king of reading online jokes & online jokes are the main street of New Media: the new world order. Which makes me the King lackadaisical-like perched upright upon a diamond-encrusted throne! There once was a time when we used to share our deepest secrets with our hairdresser. Now, we share those secrets …

Disenfranchise

These days, comedians / comediennes never get on RADIO or TELEVISION & talk about their 1st stand up performance. I consider this one of the great ironies of life. Instead gurus lecture the amateurs, hectoring us about “timing” or “executing” your “material”. We all freely use phrases & terms that a generation ago, nobody would dream of mentioning in public. Ah, but never repeat a …

Forever Grateful For Syllables

Standup comedy trains & develops since it is the only art where no one should seek to justify careless annotation by being blacklisted for being “tasteless.” The sooner one can get back on stage, the better, for then routine triggers to add more specifics & place images in the context of the narrative. Said comics have an uphill battle against glossophobia; to emphasize eyes on …

Role Models

When did you know you were funny? A question comedians are always asked which is like a screw-driver to the temple in attempting to rile a formidable reply. If you know anything about me, know I always change that answer (which got me kicked off TWTCL podcast.) I just arrived home from an Induction Ceremony at Illinois Media School – a driving force behind my …

You Make My <3 Smile

Influence is a bold word. I aim to be the influence that you are under. I want you to be under my influence. But you can’t be under the influence. The DEA or Police officers issue misdemeanors & jail time if you are under the influence – whether deemed positive or negative. As is typical of the time, many comics exaggerate & manipulate the implications …
