Weekend Intensive

It has been years since I have taught an intensive or series workshop. I have been very busy refining my skills at countless drop in classes. I have succumbed to the pressures of our artistic director and broke down to teach a Saturday Intensive improv comedy workshop. The hardest part of this is putting together a blurb for oneself. 

Saturday February 4th 9am. $75 paid in advance. Learn the new lingo of goal based scene work and have a blast. Sign up and payment is through Brown Paper Tickets  or Colette at info@staircase.org.

Solo Silo

This is a famous gif of a collapsing silo in reverse. It was really easy to reverse the gif in GIMP. However FB does not allow gifs to be uploaded. So I am uploading the gif here to be able to link it to FB. FB sucks as usual. The instructions on WP states “one must be certain to insert full size.”  I don’t write this stuff.

Spoiler Wars

It is time to talk Star Wars. If you have not seen the iconic reboot yet then you don’t care enough to be concerned about spoilers. The following spoilers won’t wreck the movie for you. Star Wars 7.0 is a campy, hilarious action packed romp of nostalgia. Go see it.

Professional Day

Dear Waterloo Public Library,

It has come to my attention that your downtown branch is closed today for a professional day. Professional days are great. May I suggest adding some basic communication skills your next professional day. 1) update your webpage hours and location to include the closure. 2) update the google of your closure. 3) put your “we are closed today” sign on the entrance door, not buried amongst 7 other identically shaped public announcements.

It was a lovely day so I decided to sit on a bench and try and get some work done on the intertubes. As I came to realize that your wireless access point was not operational today (even wifi router’s need professional days) about a dozen peeps came, tried the doors and left. Some of these folks were not that mobile. For them the simple act of switching from inside to outside drop off was a challenge. So don’t worry about grumpy old men like me. Consider improving your communications skills for the mobility challenged.

 

Yours

Me.
