So, This Time Not So Much

I had rehearsal tonight. Since I don't have a rehearsal partner it's just me in a room for a couple of hours. Remember when it went so well and I was all walking on air and whoop de doo and all that crapola?

Yeah, not so much tonight. Bit of a slog. Frankly not nearly as much fun as this sort of thing is supposed to be. I was, in short, woefully short on inspiration.

Can I borrow some of yours, please? What do you have for me? Quotes, songs, pictures, funny dances, a ridiculous third grade joke, anything at all? Please?

All mojo gratefully accepted.


  1. Not so much inspiration as a complementation... I just caught the headshot of you in the brown tee on the side scroll... Pretty damn beautiful!

    All it needs is a superhero necklace! :)

  2. so where is your partner? gone for good? gone for the week? what's the story morning glory?

    Here's a little rhyming inspiration for you:

    There once was a man from nantucket...who's who haa did something and suck it. that's all i know, go work on your show, and time's running out so truck it.

  3. How about a kindergarten joke?

    Knock knock.

    Who's there?

    Interrupting cow.

    Interrupting co-


    And if you are looking for comedy oriented more towards the grown up Anglophiliac crowd....put "Rowan Atkinson LIVE" at the top of your Netflix queue. It just came out on DVD, which I bought for Brian's birthday. It replaced the 15-year old VHS tape that we still watched because it was worth it, even though the sound sucked and the picture was fading.

    Keep on keeping on!

  4. "It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years."
    — Abraham Lincoln

    That was my Real Simple magazine quote for the day. I know it isn't really appropos, but it was in my email inbox under the inspiration folder, so I thought I'd pass it along.

    Two guys walk out of a bar.
    One of the guys looks up in the sky and says, "Hey, is that the sun or the moon?"
    The other guys looks up and says, "How should I know, I'm not from around here."

  6. Look at ALL your inspiration!!!! Ask and ye shall receive. . . sorta kinda

    Okay here are two of the most memorable things I remember seeing on YouTube in the last few months:

    Working in a rehearsal room by yourself is HARD. I'm not sure why it must be that way, but it is. I really admire your sticking it out. I'm trying my best here (not very inspired at the moment), but FWIW if you find yourself short of ideas next time, maybe try...

    Imagine having the worst, most humiliating day then meeting up with your well-meaning photographer friend who insists on taking photos of you for a dating website.

    Conversations in your head while driving to your 20-year HS reunion.

    Or...just call up any of your fans here and demand inspiration on the spot! You have so many great friends who surely wouldn't mind.
