I log in today to see eight people have looked at my blog. Eight.
Watched and played in Jerk, the Forum Theater thing last Saturday. I think fallen has ADHD. Hyperactivity, shunned by peers and then slit wrists is more or less equal to hyperactivepoetrywriting, shunned by queers and then slit wrists.
Forum theater is seriously fun. I highly recommend you attend next time it pops up, at least for the entertainment value. A whole bunch of people showed up. All to see the whackster playing the ADHD kid’s mother. We were allowed, nay, encouraged, to go up on stage and amend roles of various people so that the play’s final outcome would be different from the first run, in which the ADHD kid slit his wrists. The second run, the one during which the audience intervened, they didn’t play out the last scene. Great, we’re lead to believe we led the kid to a fate worse than death.
I was also beguiled into thinking someone who was someone I thought was someone was someone else. Someone won’t get away with it next time.
The rest of the day involved me sucking at pool, Sabby and Dinidu admiring male posteriors, then Star Trek.
Star Trek was good. Didn’t live up to all the hype but it was good. Not worth a second watch though. The technology was what you get when you watch sci-fi from the 70’s. They’d have teleportation but no email. Well not literally, but fighting hand to hand, or using swords is like us fighting wars with clubs and muskets. They also chose Harold from Harold and Kumar as a pilot. Sylar was also there but people kept calling him Spock.
The most riveting scene was when Sylar went in front of the Vulcan Science Academy and turned down their offer. He tearfully said “One day, I’m gonna be a star!” and skipped off. The movie also showed that In The Future There Will Be No Asians. Or at least that There Will Be Fewer Asians. If a Russian who sounds like he just stepped off the boat, or whatever equivalent future immigrants use(stepped off the ice perhaps?), can get into the US military, practically anybody could.
Captain Kirk was in attendance with his medical officer friend who I remember seeing somewhere on TV but can’t exactly place. He did a lot of running around and getting beaten up. He also used a parachute. What a looser. Go read some Asimov fool, you’re got better options at your disposal.
We went to Eatmore again. That place should pay us for bringing so many people in each week or something.
In other news, thewhackster has finally switched to wordpress, Fallen is going to close down his blog or something equally trivial and I have a scratchy throat today.
