What the Fuck is Wrong with Me?—a documentary about me
alas, self-deprecation accomplishes nothing
This is my friend’s dog Nemo.
Wow what a great dog!
There is an enormous raven that visits the roof of my building. I see him through the window. What a fellow…
Old friends to keep me company while I work. I haven’t heard a lot of my favorite bands in a while…Begin great spring break renaissance!
When comedy is executed brilliantly
Need to catch up on philosophy reading, and spend time pondering.
Need to read most of Gravity’s Rainbow.
Need to write an essay on a Drano ad, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, and shame in American culture.
Need to read and critique two short stories, and begin revising my own.
Need to write an epilogue to The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao that provides a post-death commentary from Oscar on the family curse, in regards to fuku and zafa.
Need to critique a short story, and begin planning my own.
Optional objectives: finish Silmarillion, rereading The Inheritors, practice guitar, write letter to friend and send it, free writing, more free reading, etc.
Draft and adhere to schedule, and don’t get carried away writing lists (naturally).
STEPHEN FRY: WHAT I WISH I’D KNOWN WHEN I WAS 18
Stephen Fry, whether killing me with laughter, or touching my heart with his wise words…
Finished my story, but by how it was received, it was something of a failure. I failed to realize the themes and ideas I wanted to convey. Nonetheless, this is a failure I can build upon, and I’m proud of having done what I did, but now is the time to revise! However…I have other assignments I need to write in the meantime. Pages and pages I owe, a Madame Bovary fanfic epilogue (actual class assignment option, college rools), and another story in between then. I’m thinking of a farce, if only for a breath of fresh air. It will be nice to attempt something easier, but it’s only so in an abstract. Comedy is hard.
video game ideas 2013
- you have to fit a bunch of big dogs in a small phone booth
- a game where you are a person in public trying to find an internet connection and each level it’s harder
- weird al yankovic themed rock band
- you are a person with french fries and there’s a bunch of hungry seagulls around and you can’t let them eat it
Genius. When can I preorder these?
I have a story due this afternoon, as in, I am forfeiting sleep, and inserting a caffeine tablet into my mouth every few hours. I love/hate deadlines. Can’t wait for the class to explain how they don’t get my story. As long as I please myself, but I fear I am my harshest critic (guy’s kind of dick).
