I no longer have any patience for pursuits that do not have the potential to make you feel like a rockstar.

The way I figure it, and I know it sounds simplistic and empty and cheap, but being a rockstar is pretty much the highest goal to which one can aspire. I mean, granted there are more important things, like and love and what-have-you, but in the realm of pleasing-yet-superficial recreation, which is a competitive sphere full of sparkly distraction, rockstardom is pretty much the tops.

And I don't have musical talent. I look inside myself regularly, to see if maybe my contents have shifted and some guitar inclination was hiding in a dusty corner behind an armoir, but I never find anything. And fuck what they told you in school, tambourine just doesn't cut it. I know, thousands of dollars and early mornings of training down the shitter. But that's just the way things are.

So then. The next best thing. Things that make you feel rockstarlike but require none of the usual skills.

Comedy. Comedy, writing comedy, performing comedy, is my rockstar activity. I have found it. I recommend you find yours.


I got to meet Lorne Michaels today. They do these Dean's Roundtable things, apparently, where showbiz luminaries come and representatives from each department of the School of Arts come and there's a Q and A. AJ got my name on the list, along with Donald, future Hammerkatz director (I'll be assistant director, this is all next semester.) It was fucking surreal and amazing, and he was hilarious and realistic without being cynical and we left wanting to do comedy. We came in wanting to do comedy, granted, but we left, I don't know-- charged.

Among the

"Creative people don't necessarily benefit from a lot of time."

"We do the show not because it's ready, but because it's 11:30."

"Of all the things you can expect as an artist, one thing you can never expect is to be understood."

And most importantly:

"The time is always now."

Then we got to leave and go do an improv show.

This is sloppy and it's late, but when life gives you days where you completely forget how cold it was two days ago and how rainy it is today, and how poor you are and this job you supposedly have is jerking you around, and how much you just wanna go to fucking bed but your room needs cleaning and your laundry needs doing and how that doesn't mean you're not just gonna go to bed anyway, it's important to, you know, demarcate them.

Although it's not like I'm gonna forget.

I've been born into the market with my parents doing work inside fashion trade. I've realized the business is very disjointed so I am at present operating using a site to provide everyone in concert.

Strange this post is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, but it was listed on the first page. I guess your doing something right if Google likes you enough to put you on the first page of a non related search. :)
