honey


“You just need to know this is the first time I’ve ever done this without looking for an exit row.
And I’m pretty sure my seat can’t float but I’ve already fallen from the sky for you,
Already said no to the parachute,
Already told my mother you curse like a sailor and you love like the war is finally over and you have just come home and you are running down the dock in the harbor and you’re screaming my name.
You’re screaming “honey”
and I’m screaming “don’t trip”
and you’re screaming “honey honey”
and I’m screaming “baby don’t fall down”
I am running for your red lips
I am running for your red heart
With my red heart
Red as a Mississippi sunset
Honey”

-Andrea Gibson, “Honey”

Staging a Spectacle in Seattle 2015



I realized every time I've ever sat down and made an actual list of goals to achieve within a reasonable time frame, not being overly ambitious, but set it out there on paper.. I've always accomplished them! So one of my goals for this year is to stage a public improvised theatrical stunt or SPECTACLE inspired mostly by the work of NY based group Improv Everywhere.  You've probably heard of by now about the No Pants Light Rail that's happened 4 years in a row in Seattle? Well that's actually in sync with these guys as it's officially a global wide stunt/event. Here is just a tiny little taste of what their thing is all about ~



more videos available HERE!


So far I've considered the possibility of doing a "silent rave or disco", there's a whole slew of successfully tried/tested/and proven ones that the crew has done in NY and we would fully have their permission and endorsement to do.. and I just came across this idea that I absolutely LOVE also coming out of NYC and that's called ShakesBEER which combines 2 of my most favorite things in the world which is traditional Shakespeare & beer! I love how creator Ross Williams explains it here on Backstage.com ~

Might I suggest a rehearsal exercise? After every line add “Amiright?” and address it to someone in the room. “To be, or not to be, that is the question. Amiright?”

How they do it is they sell tickets in advanced so they have a controllable # of participants that probably helps sell it to bar owners but basically it's a pub crawl with a different act or scene performed at each bar. That would require a larger more dire hard committed group of helpers who not only must be as excited as me to take on this project but also talented  actors as well so this one might be ambitious at my current state of community though... 
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!




BTW.. if you live around the PNW and you'd like to get involved on one of my projects or have any ideas or thoughts to contribute to creatively sussing out what we should do..

 PLEASE JOIN  SEATTLE SPECTACLE!

Tinder turns men into morons



The perception that Tinder is for "hook ups" seems to turn men into boys at a all you can eat ice cream fudge sundae banana split bar until they fail to notice that they have become fat gross pigs OR reverts them back into virgins not knowing a single thing of how to handle an encounter with a potential sexual partner! Here's how I handled one of the later who after carefully picking a date and planning to spend an evening with me very patiently and gentlemanly decided to text me under an hour prior to arrival asking if I am clean or not and how do I feel about condoms?!


Lxxx, if you read my little profile bit you would see that I'm not looking for hook ups here at all! No one has any business enquiring of my cleanliness when they have never even laid eyes on me in person, that shouldn't even be a concern until you're at least within projectile body fluid landing range of them otherwise it's just plain impolite.. and asking me if I mind condoms before you've scored the first kiss is equally quite presumptuous even if I were entertaining for straight hook up purposes only because a passing a picture test doesn't mean you will turn me on.. it just means I'm willing to take a closer look and see if you smell good and are capable of carrying on a conversation and hang out and chill first.. then if that goes well enough after a few hours you should be able to tell if I'm interested in kissing you and if you that much well enough and I'm obviously not trying to make the kissing stop and appear to be a willingly passionate participant in having you all up in my grill invading my personal space, breathing the same air, exchanging spit, THEN you can ask about your dick and my disease status!! Got it??
