|Is there still life here...
||[Sep. 8th, 2009|10:30 pm]
As time goes by, something never change. For example, the fact I lapse in my usual posts and come back always bringing it up. So I won’t waste your time with that and get into the meat of this entry.
I guess this can be broken into 3 parts, but as this is just the intro I can roll out the norm and give you some glimpses into what my life has been lately.
The easiest way to some things up, I’ve been working a lot. I’m not sure if I mentioned it before, but I might as well mention it again, I work in the electronics department of the Super Target. Recently, after the specialist of the department took a leave of absence, I’ve been in charge of the department for a little while now and it’s been ok. There have been some ups and downs, to sum it up it has been a learning experience and I would defiantly do it again if I am needed. Also, with that said I can’t wait for Hilda to get back so I can go back to being kind of faceless and just work ha-ha.
Enough of that, here is the main part or the journal. It’s going to be 3 parts, first two will be some past this I have done and might as well throw it on here, to at least put something new on the space. The last part will be kind of a brain drain, just to put some thoughts on the page and hopefully figure out something. Its already looking like this is going to be a long one, I couldn’t compare this to Kevin Smith 24hr tweet Q&A, but I guess writing again it the right step forward. More on that later..
07.14.09- For awhile, I wanted to go to this show and I finally got to go. I’m talking about going to a taping of “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson”. Anyways, back to the story, I’ve been a fan of the guy for a long time and got hooked to the show quickly after he took over the hosting job. I never thought about going until recently, and then my car started acting up. That’s a usual what the hell moment, but I still wanted to go. Thankfully a good friend of mine, being the great friend she is said that she would drive and so we were on our way, well on our way about a week later.
It was a great day, the wait in line wasn’t too long and there was no need to go to work. Anyways, to keep this short, the taping went great and out of any show this is one to see live. Most of the fun stuff does make it to the show, but there is a lot of stuff not safe for TV that is awesome to experience as a member of the audience. Ferguson can rift on anything and the man is insanely quick witted, I highly recommend the movie “The Big Tease” very underrated flick.
08.21.09- This one was several years in the making, several years because of the fucking stupid economy and other bullshit that is too pointless to list. Anyways, after about 4 long years, I finally saw Christopher Titus perform. It was such an awesome show; it was defiantly worth the wait and price of the show. The long and short of that is I purchased a ticket for myself and a friend that seemed like he was going to go, then at the last second dropped out and still has not paid me back. I haven’t even heard a word from him since that call, but I guess there is a longer entry with that one.
Back to the show, well before the show, I got to Ontario early and roamed around the mall. It had been awhile since I went there and it changed a lot, who knew Virgin megastores went out. During that time, I started talking to a girl that worked at one of the shops and actually made a try at seeing if she wanted to go to the show. If you know me, that is usually something I wouldn’t do and I did. The shy guy I am and I stepped out of that box, well for a few moments and it felt good. The timing wasn’t the best, reason being she had the late shift and it was cool, I made the attempt though.
About a half hour or so until the show, I met up with Jason and his date Bethany for some drinks. Its always fun drinking with Jason, he has always been a great friend to me and I know I can always be myself around him. Anyways, my inner fan boy started to itch, so I made my way down to the club and waited for the other two members of the party to come down. Damn, I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t have a date so I would look like a dork ha-ha.
The show started and it was great. The warm up guy did about a half hour, killed with a lot of his act. Finally Titus came on and rocked, trust me on this I don’t really say rocked a lot so when I do it has something behind it. He did some new stuff and rolled with some stuff from his Love is Evol special. I could go into more of what he said, but just go through his past work and laugh you ass off. I recommend the Titus tv show and Norman Rockwell is Bleeding for any newbies.
The show ended and we stuck around for the meet& greet. As always with most comics I have met, the guy was really cool and nice. I told him how much I looked up to his work and he gave me some advice, then he signed some cds (that I already owned through I tunes) after we got some pictures with him, we made our ways out and start the trip home. Then I quickly had to turn around, I realized the picture didn’t save and went back to hopefully re-take it. I got back and explained what happen, as I thought he was very cool about it and we took the picture again.
That’s about it on that part, I hope I came across clearly and didn’t ramble. Before I jump into the last part, I’m going to take a breather and damn I’m already on the 2nd page of this.
I’ve been putting dates on the top two entries, since there was an actual time frame with those. This next piece is just going to be venting, the frustrations that have been floating in my mind recently about my writing. I would wrap my issue, which isn’t really an issue, as writer’s block/laz/fear.
The writer’s block is what it is, but its kind of a cop out for me too. I should be sitting down everyday and just writing. I guess the only way to get around that is to do what I am doing right now, either write something in here or sit and work on one of the many project I always seem to let collect dust.
The writer’s laziness, which explains itself, is answered with the above comment regarding writer’s block.
Finally, fear is something in the past I can’t I would every fall back into. I use to write and see what kind of reaction I would get, but lately it’s been different. I actually have been over thinking about the reaction and as I write that I see how full of shit that is.
In the past, I’ve had people actually give me crap when I tell them I haven’t been writing lately. Also, with that, I use to get a lot of compliments regarding my past work and I missed the reactions. I don’t know if that will mean if I will be taking my writing anywhere but nowhere, but I guess the only thing I can do is take a shot.
Thanks for putting up with this long ass entry.
