NOTE: Woke already happened. I forgot to post this earlier. While things look quiet on the blog front, behind the scenes, I furiously scribble away in my journal from my daily grind to ideas for stories, to premises for jokes. Right now it's jokes for tonight's Woke Comedy Hour at X-Cues. It means I have … Continue reading Scibbling Away
Other Duties As Assigned
If I sneeze one more time, the brain cells left will not help me tackle my to-do list. My blog break turned into a week and a few days. The trees budded and I keep forgetting every spring, my nose stuffs up, and my sneezes echo through the now-empty library at work. Add watery eyes and … Continue reading Other Duties As Assigned
Finding My Funny: The Only Way To Counter A Crazy World
"How are you feeling?" asked my classmate, a woman who already had two open mics under her belt. "Like I am going to cry," I answered. No, actually, I felt my eyes wanted to vomit tears rather than just vomit, which is normal as stage fright goes, or so I thought. "That's normal," She replied, … Continue reading Finding My Funny: The Only Way To Counter A Crazy World
Finding My Funny: It’s Showtime!
Anyone remember Joss Whedon's movie Serenity? In particular, does anyone remember this exchange: Wash: This landing is gonna get pretty interesting Mal: Define 'Interesting.' Wash: Oh God, oh God, we're all going to die? Substitute 'landing' with a 'stand-up routine', timed at 4 minutes give or take, and you have how I feel at the moment. Jitters are … Continue reading Finding My Funny: It’s Showtime!
Finding My Funny: Nearing Showtime
Next week, I will take the stage at PTE for my first stand up set. I have jokes, ways to say them, but will not know if they will get laughs until the closing cabaret. I know in the end, seeing a stand-up special will never be the same for me. Cristela Alonso in her … Continue reading Finding My Funny: Nearing Showtime
A Music Monday With No Music And Other Musings
My Monday in an image: No, I didn't stay up late watching the Oscars. I found out about the Best Picture debacle live on Twitter. Mistake numero uno, too much screen time. I wanted to see what song would the award, and I hoped Oscar did not go to 'City of Stars.' People talk about … Continue reading A Music Monday With No Music And Other Musings
Finding My Funny
The email from the Prairie Theatre Exchange acting school reminded me about spots left in some their winter term classes. I already took a 20 week, yup 20, acting foundations class. I learned my mind was Teflon at the time while memorising a monologue for the class but helped me get out of some areas … Continue reading Finding My Funny
Why I Just Don’t Get the Show ‘Girls’ (Note: It’s Not About the Show Not Having Zombies, Vampires, or Dragons)
Bohemian Geeky Girl posted her review of HBO's new comedy Girls. Her review, coupled with the promos leaving me a little cold, relegated the show to later viewing on Movie Central on Demand. (Canadian Equivalent, somewhat, of HBO on Demand. Long story.) I felt a little curious about the show and some its reviews. In … Continue reading Why I Just Don’t Get the Show ‘Girls’ (Note: It’s Not About the Show Not Having Zombies, Vampires, or Dragons)
