I posted this earlier this morning, but I’m posting it again because some people said really nice words about it. I wrote this without any pre-writing or planning, just flow on consciousness about what was on my mind. I wanted to be honest but also silly. It is based on a loose high school paper format. It’s pretty short, about a page and a half. I didn’t proof read or edit it, so sorry about any misspells or grammatical errors. Enjoy!
Earlier this morning (around 5am), while waiting for trains back into Jersey, I wrote down what was in my head in a loose high school paper format. I wanted to speak my mind but also be silly but mostly honest. I like this, even if it is rough and horribly written. I left it as is, no editing or re-writing or proof reading. Read it if you’d like, it’s a good page and a half or so.
I teach one specific class called Pirate, Robots and Ninjas. In the class we do Harolds and other Longforms from the perspective of these characters. The reason why is to help define what kind of player you are. Are you bold like a pirate, calculating like robot, or silent but deadly like a ninja.
I was thinking about something similar lately because I’m in an improv identity crisis, trying to find out what my voice is and my style is. This, like most improv blog stuff, is good reading.
I have taken to brainstorming a Community spec, “Intro To Robotics And It’s Effect On The Space-Time Continuum” that deals with the alternate time lines set up in the “Remedial Chaos Theory” episode as well as an idea of the characters being robots in one of the universes.

A Message I Just Sent To An Old Female Friend Of Mine
“So, I’m not a Jersey Shore fan — but this made me think of you. Vinny, from said show, takes improv classes at the place I take improv classes. I am 4 levels ahead of him. That makes me a cool dude, right? Like, I could get so much action because of that?”
Tonight may have been the best night I have ever had. Period. First I ate with Fesh, then I had practice with Group Hug, then I went to the best Cage Match ever. Mick Foley, you guys. Also, Rogue Elephant performed the best monoscene I have ever seen. Fuck That Shit killed it as well. I am so filled with energy. This has reminded me of why I moved here and why I want to stay here. Give me a job!
And tried to take it down, but eBay wouldn’t allow it at first. My troubleshooting for the problem? Simple, remove the photo and retitle it “Poop” and remove all traces of it being an iPod touch. So, for a half hour, my eBay account was selling poop, starting bid at $100 and buy now for $150. I finally removed the item.
