Hopefully This'll Be Something
Alright! Been a while. Let's see if I still have Entry Power in me.
I guess one paragraph could be Update About My Life. Been doin' the open
mics. Gonna do a show next Wednesday with a Poet friend of mine.
Alternate doing poetry and my songs, that's good. He wants me to play
music in the background of his poetry, though. Which is a problem.
Because I don't know how to play the guitar. Also, I don't know
what his poetry is about. How'm I supposed to play appropriate music?
I don't know, it's a brain buster. I'm gonna go in with the idea that
it'll work itself out. That usually doesn't work out for me.
Oh well, whatever. Anyway. More or less quit drinking, except for
once a week. Haven't drank at home for 2 weeks, only drink during Open Mic.
So I got that going for me. I might lose weight as a result! That's
Cool. Now, goof balls and funny bones time.
Hmm. How does this work again. Just start typing and jokes come
out, right? That's my memory. My life has been pretty boring.
Gotta start a new phase or something. But what. Too late to
register for Grad School for the Fall. Too early to register for Grad
School for the Next Fall. Gettin' a job sounds like hard work.
Learnin' how to drive, that could work, but my parents are against it.
As long as I'm drinking, I can't learn to drive. I only drink once a
week! 50% of drivers drink at least once a week, right? Also, I'm
not stupid. I would never drink and drive. Because I place some
value on my life and whatnot. That's the real kicker. They don't
trust that I'm mentally smart enough to not drink and drive.
Pele. That's the real kicker. Only Soccer
Player I could think of. What was the origin of America calling Football
"Soccer." Yeah, there's this game called Football. Everyone plays
it. Let's make up a new name for it. America, am I right?
Probably was because we already called American Football "Football."
There goes that joke. Anyway, what the what. I don't get soccer
or hockey. Also, other sports. I feel like I've riffed on this all I
can already. Talked about how you should make three people defend the
goal, you can't lose. Talk about how losing in Beer Pong is actually
winning, because theoretically you want to drink alcohol. That's
all I can think of. Sports! Get a load of that.
Jeeeeez. Fourth paragraph. Also, the cup of water
for washing off the Ping Pong Ball in Beer Pong-- who are you foolin?
That's not cleaning off shit. It falls on the floor, you dunk it in water,
you think that gets any bacteria on it? But you're so desperate to
continue your precious, precious Beer Pong that you just shrug it off.
Close enough. Anyway. You should go the Baseball Route, go into
Beer Pong with several dozen balls. A ball hits the ground, throw it off
to someone watching the game. Now he's got a souvenir and you've got a
clean ball to contaminate your beer. I've got a really good drinking game.
Here's how it works. Every time you want to take a drink of alcohol,
you do it. That's the only rule. Probably made that joke
before too. Sounds familiar.
I don't know. Fifth paragraph. Life without
drinking is pretty much the same as life with drinking. If it didn't have
calories, though, I'd still be drinking. Might as well do something.
Anyway, jeez. Goofballs, funny bones, where are you? I don't
know. Poker Site hasn't worked for me in about a month. So none of
that goin' on. Dramatically increased my playing of Solitaire, though.
So that's good. Anyway. Should start doin' new music. No
inspiration, though! Whatta jip. Hey, Queens College is gonna mail
me my diploma within the next few weeks! Alright! Finally, a
diploma. I never got my Stuyvesant Diploma. I got a certificate for
it, figured that was close enough. If I ever need to prove I graduated
from Stuyvesant I could probably call them up and they'd have records somewhere.
Maybe I can even get them to give me a Diploma, 12 years later. Hmm.
That sounds like fun.
Sixth paragraph. Aiming for 10, cause I figure if I
write 5 more paragraphs, there might be some goofballs. I wanna get Barber
Scissors for myself. The electric razor I have is pretty good for short
facial hair, but I gotta trim some of it to get it to that level. Also, I
get to put them in a jar filled with an unknown but very inviting blue liquid.
I want to see what that's all about! Jeez. If you're doing a show
that week at same venue of Open Mic, they let you go on earlier. That's
the real good part of doing it. I've found my favorite part of performing
lately is rejoining the audience after I went. And enjoying the one or two
positive comments I get. I go on early, I get to rejoin the audience
for hours! Think of all the praise and adoration I'll get.
Seventh paragraph. Still looking forward to getting my
TV as a birthday present. My birthday was over four months ago.
Oh well, the wait makes it all the more sweet when I finally get it! Jeez.
I like making lists of my top 10 or 20 favorite movies. I do it every couple of
months in case I ever need to have a prolonged conversation with someone about
my favorite movies. Here's some themes that I've observed-- several movies
about prison. Several movies about zombies. That's about it.
Also, several super hero movies, but that's not uncommon or anything, sure.
What else. Prison and Zombies, I'm a happy guy! I think there
was a Re-Animator sequel that took place in a jail. I saw it once.
So I guess I know there was. Wasn't that great, though.
Eighth paragraph. What the what. Sometimes I
miss taking classes at Queens College. Sometimes I don't. Get off
my back about it, alright?! Jeez. Not sure how to deal with
Franchises when making my list of favorite movies. I'm not gonna list
several movies from one franchise in the list, that's rediculous. But when
listing the one movie, do I just put my favorite one, or go The Dark Knight
Trilogy as if it counts for one spot. I demand answers!
Also, how much should I incorporate movies I really liked as a child, and/or
really like as an adult due to nostalgia reasons. I demand answers!
Maybe I should make a list of 10 movies I predict I will like as a Later Adult
due primarily to nostalgia reasons. Ones I can either take or leave as of
now, but 20 years from now, will really get me going. I've given myself
a lot to think about.
Alright! Thinking about things! Sounds like
fun to me. Oh, right. Another exciting thing about the show next
Wednesday. I'm thinking about bringing my Electric Guitar to do that.
Man oh man, would that mix things up. Alright! Jeez. Hey, it's
the ninth paragraph. Just chugging right along. That's a word,
right? That could be used in that context? Right? Right?
I don't know. That's why I asked you. It's 4/20. Sometimes I
think about wanting to smoke marijuana again. Not a lot. Just one
puff or two. See how that goes. Oh well. I used to have a
neighbor with a poodle named puff. Terrified me. Not the
neighbor, the dog. Anyway, jeez.
10th paragraph. Pretty sure this has been a waste of
time. Anyway. Maybe I should see a movie tomorrow. That sounds
like Fun and a Half. Also, do I put Cop and a Half on my list of
favorite movies. That would be a list of 20. Not crackin' the
top 10, that's for sure. A Quite Place sounds good, but I don't like the
no dialogue thing. Sounds boring. Dialogue is the best part of movies!
Words! Now This I Can Get Behind! What else. Maybe
I can see Super Troopers II and stand outside the theater begging for marijuana.
What else. Tenth paragraph right now. Gonna go for a little bit
more. Because I feel indebted to you for reading this so far, that the
possibility of Joke-Em-Ups is a chance that I feel I have to take.
Cool. This'll be the last paragraph. I can't
think of anything more. What else. I can't wait to get my new
TV. That'll inspire me. I'll be consuming all new sorts of TV and
Movies, that'll permeate my brain by osmosis, write new blog and music based on
that. Maybe I should watch Osmosis Jones if it's available.
Nah. Anyway. Eight minutes until 5. TV and Movies start every
half hour! If I finish this by 5, I can watch things starting at 5 the way
God intended-- when they start. It's called strategy you morons.
I don't know. Life is boring. In retrospect, makes sense that Entry
would be boring. I'll see ya later.
