I’ll be honest. I don’t know how to start this blog. I want it to be crisp and golden out of the bag, but then I’m afraid to ruin it with phrases like “crisp and golden out of the bag.” I got laid off today. It’s not new. It’s happened to me once or twice. It’s kind of an old hat at this point. Never … Continue reading The Old Year
This is my ninth attempt at a blog post in the past two weeks. I keep starting again from scratch because I’m of the mindset that everything I do is shit. Thanks, *insert authority figure*! Really, I’m just lazy. Probably. I find it very difficult to self-motivate during my unemployment. When I have a job, I have a purpose. Get up. Go do the thing … Continue reading Self-motivation!!!
Wednesday night, I had a killer set at The Surly Girl Saloon and then subsequently was afflicted with a sickness that made me ask the question, “Is success worth the dropping of the other shoe?” It is, for the record. Mild as that success may be. And in terms of cause/effect, a quick survey of some friends seems to indicate, the success was immaterial. The … Continue reading Fuck if I know.
What is it, Friday? Time to write a new blog. What? Shit! Saturday?… I’m bad at keeping a schedule. Well, today is March fourteenth. My birthday was Tuesday, and Captain Ladyface surprised me by inviting about 70% of everyone I’ve ever high-fived to The Shrunken Head for karaoke. She was able to finagle a drink special that really allowed me to indulge my narcissism. I … Continue reading Another Year Older
I’m just going to start typing up a rough blog post draft right now. As usual, I have no idea what to write about. This is a habit I need to get back into. Time lapses are killers, man. I’ve been a lot busier over the last couple of months than I’ve been in years. That’s not a complaint at all. I’m extremely happy to … Continue reading Title entered here.
The sketch group I joined recently, Alpaca Lips comedy has a live sketch show at Strange Loop Records every other month. We are really working on getting to the bottom of how comedy works. On the other months, there is a stand up comedy showcase show that I attended last night as an audience member and I have to say that place is amazing. It’s … Continue reading Back For The Future
This has been one hell of a year so far. And it isn’t even over. Robin Williams killed himself and Bill Cosby has been revealed to be a notorious rapist. Typing that sentence was incredibly difficult for me as a jester-by-trade, a human being and a fan of the movie “Jack” On top of all that, I lost my grandfather on Halloween. Forever depleting the … Continue reading The Quiet Nobility of Trolls
I started the podcast just to see if I could. Whether or not I can still remains to be seen. Now I have a laundry list of pretentious reasons with which I’ve convinced myself of its importance in my life. It’s an outlet for me. As many opportunities as there are to get on stage in Columbus, (I got up five times last week) it’s … Continue reading The Change. It had to come.
I’m 25. I’ve been working at the same soul-numbing job for the past six years of my life. I finally grew tired of wearing khakis and being taken advantage of when I put in my two weeks notice a few days ago. 25. I’ve been wearing an apron and sarcastically calling seven year old kids “Sir” and “Miss” until recently, when I realized that it … Continue reading Writing a Resume
I have a couple of jobs… I don’t tell you this with the intention of sounding like some noble working class hero. Quite the contrary. I keep job #1 because it’s a job and I’m quite frankly terrified of leaving my khaki-clad comfort-zone. Job #2 is one I really enjoy. I work at a reception hall. The people are fun, the food is amazing and … Continue reading Great Indian Food.
