An Email To Send

Listen To Me
The title of the movie I'm in with Kirk Cameron. Hey, that's great. If you see this before you hear this, then you're getting it twice, however I do need to say these things so in advance, I'm sorry. I love you. I'm not sorry that I love you. It's a matter of as you know, I don't like repeating myself. Furthermore, you've told me things twice that I heard the first time, therefore you've wasted your time.

Okay, at some point, all of this will make sense, and I don't know when that will be. The love song hasn't been written yet, however it will be written by the time I get to Phoenix, which is a song that has already been written by someone else.

How many tracks does the mind have? I know you know, but I don't. Probably seven. 7 chakras, and mine are out of alignment. As a result,, I get a chiropractor telling me to see him n times a week, and you say that we shouldn't see them. Okay! Message received and understood.

Sometimes I think you don't listen to me. I get that your things are more important, and the constant feel of you pushing me away is hurtful. I've said that before. Well, I wrote it. To say things, I would have to actually speak to you, and we don't do that a lot.

You know things that I don't. I know things that you don't. We have been brought together to do great thigns. Things. Wow. Sometimes that gets autocorrected by this beast. Sometimes not.  On at least one occasion, I've said I shouldn't have the TV running while I type this exercise, journal, meditation, or whatever this is to you.

A text. From you?

No. Volleyball tomorrow night. I'm on Nova 2, or the team that is not the first team. I was on 3 last time around, however this year we only have 2 teams. Why is that? Personalitly conflicts with the organizer/coach.  Not with me, as I don't truly care, however THE believes that she knows more than he does, and for the most part, that's not technically correct.  Also, we don't have practices this year like we did the last time. That's mildly distressing.

Forgot to get info for THE relative to V'ball. Was more interested in dealing with the filming I'm doing for Trust The Process, the name of the team that one of our church members created in the Torrance League.  420 to that point ;;)

I guess that's a double wink with a smile.

The need for speed exists. It's almost noon, and I think I should finish before then.

Directing the sex scene, in a PG-13 movie. They're easy to write: They make love. Done! Now it's a timing thing. How long does it need to be to play out? Porn says 3 minutes, and show everything. With clothes on, is it still 3 minutes?  Know that I don't know what true romance is, however I believe there's a movie with that title.

Love is....

Something you fall in. A thing between two people. Other words to define their relationship. Let's break that word down shall we? Re- a prefix meaning again. -ship in this case is a suffix, and as you know, shippers exist online, and it happens more than you know. Captain Kirk once said, "A ship is a ship."  The end of I believe IV, as they get assigned The Enterprise 1701-A. 

Do I reread things that I write?

To continue: -tion is apparently not a suffix. Maybe it's -ion. Okay, then the root word is late. lation. Not a word. Fascinating. Why are odd numbers funnier than even? My favorite: 37. Why? Because it's oone more than 36. Also, a number that I can psychologically force you to choose. Well, not know, because I told you that's the end of the illusion. Tell 'em what you're going to do. Do it. Tell 'em when you're done. Beginning, middle, end. This is why we have 3 act structure. Of course, you can change that to 5 if you're bold and daring.

So, a relationship is...atoms rotating around each other that bump into each other from time to time depending on how the wind is blowing.  That can't possibly be right, however it is what the word broken down into its parts sums up, and we are greater than the sum of our parts. 3 words needed.

Other Than Spelling Mistakes...

I found this while looking for something else entirely unrelated. Let your mind go, and the body will follow. Everyone is improvising....

Sometimes, A Well Timed Heckle is all You've Got

Those that know me, truly know me, in all but The Biblical sense will attest to the following: I've made my living by heckling. In fact, if I were a supervillain, I'd probably be, The Heckler!!! As we know, I'm Batman. Sshhh!!! Don't tell anyone. It's a secret. I read this and had to respond.

Why, you ask? Or maybe you didn't. I don't know. Maybe you haven't even read this far. If you have, three reasons come to mind for a well timed heckle:

  1. To get a laugh
  2. To speed up the proceedings, and finally
  3. editorial commentary

Maybe that last one covers the other two, I don't know. Having performed stand up comedy for most of my life, I can tell you, it's not good when you allow a heckler on a roll. You have to shut them down immediately. Fortunately, as most of you know, I'm able to do that, too. Picking your spots, and using a heckle on an occasional basis, is okay sometimes. You may heckle me by replying, or leaving a comment below. Or a tweet. Unless you see this on Facebook, in which case, you should Like this, really. Like this, like this!!! ;)
