Ah how long the silence. And yet if you pay close attention you'll notice that it is not silence! No, for there is the careful click clack of keys being struck upon a computer. Given the mundane nature of my night job I have recently taken to a new game to amuse myself. This new game is of course radically set apart from my other game which is to make all my co-workers believe that I am completely out of my mind. My new game is a mental exercise that I have set myself to keep my mind engaged and active during those hours where I might be subject to the distinct attributes of depression and life questions. I'm sure you are all familiar with the state of mind to which I am referring.
"Why the hell am I doing this?" "I'll never make it!" "I wonder which came first, chess or checkers... I should look that up." Of course you never do look it up. Cursory research indicates that checkers came first by the way.
At any rate, my new game involves the crafting of scenarios, from the ordinary to the completely absurd. Being me they mostly tend to be absurd. But it has been a very interesting venture, which has resulted in several new scripts, and let me tell you I'm just itching to start getting some of these filmed! It might sound strange but I feel like if I can get even one of these put together in a way that is satisfactory it will make putting the others together easier somehow. I don't know why I feel that way, but in any case I'm very eager to see these new ideas come to fruition!
In other news I just opened a show, The Miser, with Parson's Nose Theatre Company here in LA. I'm working with an amazing cast of very talented actors and it's been a blast. Our first two shows went very well, and we've got four more to go which I'm pretty sure are going to kick ass. You know, moving to LA, I think I can put that down as a good idea. I'm glad to be able to add this to my list of life experiences.
