Chances are tomorrow’s show is going to be a spectacular failure, but it’s beyond my control at this point. I’m not going to lose sleep over the fact that the audience will most likely be EMPTY, but instead focus on making sure my three sketches are fan-fucking-tastic.
The cancer benefit went off without a hitch, but for some reason I’ve had a bitch of a time getting performers for this one. Let that be a lesson to you. It is hard to find performers unless they are either getting paid, getting good exposure, or doing it for charity.
I used to watch The View a lot about 2 years ago. That ended when Rosie left. Every now and than I see a clip from the show online and I’ll watch it. Elisabeth Hasselbeck irritates me to no end and each time I see one of these clips with her in it, it just reinforces all my strong feelings of dislike (I won’t say hate, I don’t like to hate on people. Bad karma.) for her. She is a moron. Whoopi knows what’s up and I cannot agree more with what she says. Lucky for me, I don’t make enough money to pay higher taxes so woo! Tax breaks for me! But when I AM making enough money to pay more taxes towards maintaining the country (think Clinton era) I will not complain about it one bit. In conclusion, Elisabeth - you got famous from Survivor, that’s about all you going for you. And you didn’t even win.
Tomorrow I get to be an extra in the new Judd Apatow movie. I’m not a fan of being herded and sitting around for seventeen hours, but it sure seems better than whoring…or the time I went to a live taping of New Adventures of Old Christine (which is essentially the same thing).
I’m helping Fat Rock put together a screenplay competition for female writers. So far it’s just been going through colleges and getting contact information. I’m down to Idaho and was going through the website of the Journalism Department at University of Idaho when I found this guy.
This is Abubakar. He was the TA in my Communication Theory at Western Michigan University.
Is it weird that I randomly found him, or weird that I actually remember the TA from my Communication Theory class, Spring 2003 at WMU?
Jess and Baggy both wrote about how their lives have changed since a year ago, so I figured I’d do the same.
I checked my old blog, but apparently I wasn’t keeping up with it last October. Although I did write about seeing Frankie Muniz at work once. So…I guess that’s one difference from last year. Less Frankie Muniz.
Creatively, I’m going strong. I love my UCB classes. I am putting on two shows in the next two weeks. I’ve written a script that’s been optioned by an independent producer and we are working on an animated web series. I’ve decided that I’d rather be creative and funny than have a lot of money.
I can’t really say if my work situation has gotten better or worse. Better because I’m not a corporate slave. Worse because I’m back to a strict diet of turkey sandwiches and wheat thins for lunch and dinner every day.
I have a subscription to Rolling Stone. Why? Well, clearly not because I’m into music…not that it matters because Rolling Stone has pretty much steared clear of that topic for a while. I subscribed because a subscription was on sale on Amazon for five bucks, and if I paid five extra dollars I got free shipping on the stuff I was already ordering.
This pissed me off.
I don’t mind that Rolling Stone has a liberal tilt and supports Obama. So do I. But I can’t believe I’m the only one who takes issue with this cover, considering…
That’s three covers in seven months. There’s a difference between journalism and dick sucking. While I’d certainly prefer more Obama covers to anything Sarah Palin-related (less so for my actual distaste of her and more just because I’m just sick of hearing people talk about the woman), it is important to remember that Rolling Stone should NOT be your social and political reference guide.
