When the urge strikes

This is yet another great story from an incredible couple of women that I know.

When the urge strikes you,

The year 2001, the place high school, 6th period, AP history class, Junior year. The subject the holocaust.

While watching a non-closed caption holocaust video I knew Michelle was bored out of her mind. Being deaf she needed closed caption considering most of the film was narrated. But this film had no closed caption or subtitles. So we were signing in the darkened class and goofing off.

All the while smirking and looking around, trying not to be so bored. You’ve probably sat through a class like that or two? We were trying to be quiet. Honest we were. And we succeeded for a while.

As class wore on one of the senior boys was passing by the door. Of course I had to tell Michelle who was watching him with great interest. We knew him, a jock and one of the “cool” kids…

Messages From The Angels – You Are Never Alone

Sky blue is my color, and theme for this year. Found this while randomly surfing the ‘net that is inter….

Blooming In Love

This is an inspired writing. I am writing this message to all who are reading from the angels. The card reading was done after the inspired writing and I find it to be fitting as to what I was inspired to write this morning and also in keeping with the theme of yesterday’s inspired writing.

You are never alone.

We see you and are with you every moment.

Why do you struggle so?

Why do you dwell in sadness?

Burden yourself with worry?

Live with guilt or regret?

We are here to help you.

God longs to hear the prayers of your heart and see you live in freedom.

You deserve peace.

You deserve happiness.

You deserve love.

You deserve prosperity.

Don’t forget that you are never alone.

We are here to help you.

Batman And Wonder Woman Get Married?

I think Catwoman might have something to say about this….

STRAITENED CIRCUMSTANCES: Tim Hanley on Wonder Woman and Women in Comics

Here’s a little Valentine’s fun for all of us: The Source has released a preview of The All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold #4, which features the caped crusader proposing marriage to our favourite Amazon.  Here is his proposal:

Just before this, both Batman and Wonder Woman got blasted by some sort of pink love ray, so I suspect some Star Sapphire/Zamaron involvement here.  But yeah, it sounds like a cute issue… and I like that they went with an old school version of Wonder Woman.  She looks very Silver Age.  Look for the issue in stores now.

168: A Celestial Number

via 168: A Celestial Number

I’ve always intellectually known that it’s a good number, as 24*7 is in fact 168. 13 squared equals 169, and the one leftover is there for you to interpret what to do with it.

I’m pretty sure I’ve written about this before either here or elsewhere, therefore a search will probably give you extraneous results that have nothing to do with me, or anything else numerologically….

Natural Language Processor

This assumes that language can be processed naturally. On stage, I can say a simple sentence several different ways based on mood, timing, and even the number of syllables can all affect what I say.

Now, for you to interpret that one line out of context changes the meaning or thought behind it, simply because you don’t know what has come before.  Shakespeare has all of these great lines and quotes that are available to you at a moment’s notice, however he was writing to provide entertainment to the unwashed masses.

The fact that his plays and sonnets have survived the centuries means he was able to do it repeatedly, and his stories resonated beyond his grave. We’re still telling most of these stories today, and each actor and actress brings their own interpretation to the various roles.

Of course as we know, back in his day, men played all the parts, as women were beneath such things, or there was some cultural norm that I’m unaware of. Is that why they call it, “A play?” Women must have more important work to do surely.

I’m writing this in what passes for American English, and there’s a chance that it’s not your first language. A simple three word sentence such as, “He fell up,” can be interpreted by a machine, however it doesn’t make sense.

Would not falling up really be flying?

I found a site the other day that asks us to input simple sentences; subject, verb, object; in order to teach the machine either logic or language. Maybe both. Personally, I don’t have time for this type of data entry, however you may.

I walk up to you and say, “I couldn’t get the money.” This prompts several questions that may come to mind in you. We do know that money is how society keeps score, however that’s not what this is about. We may want to ask the question;

Why does society keep score?

Shouldn’t we all be equal? Don’t we have rights? I was once told I had the right to remain silent.  Clearly I’ve given up that right, or else you wouldn’t be reading this….

I haven’t made this one look pretty or anything, so I don’t expect to get any comments, however if you feel so called, please do.

You Are Your Headshot

I know I’ve written about this elsewhere, however it bears repeating. I want to know what you look like. Producer, one of the seven or eight things I do depending on whom you ask makes this relevant.

I don’t want to know what you looked like more than let’s say three years ago. The best version of yourself is who you are live in front of me. If you send me to a site with pictures that make you look significantly younger than what you actually look like, you’ve wasted my time.

Don’t do this.

I get paid a lot of money when I get paid and you probably can’t afford me. I expect that you do as well. The entertainment industry has unions with scale, and they’re purportedly a living wage.  That’s why we got into this in the first place right?

I give you respect, and politely look at your headshot, and then you come in with a look that is radically different. You’ve wasted gas, and your time as well.  Furthermore, this is 2018, and I don’t hide my emotions or my opinions from anyone, therefore if I call you out for an old headshot, you may have lost a job not only with me, but with all of my producer friends as well.

You’re probably asking yourself, “Mike, where’s your headshot?” Well, I could post a current one here, but it’s available elsewhere. It’s an even numbered year, so the mustache is current. I’m willing to shave it for the right price as allegedly it will grow back.

At least, that’s what they tell me at Barber College.

I’m not saying my time is more valuable than yours, however in this instantaneous society in which we currently live, do you really want to take a chance like this? I know I don’t….

I do feel a bit hypocritical however.  I had a really great photographer take headshots of me, and I haven’t posted them yet. I’m faced with too many choices syndrome. Again, 2018, and digital photography are the culprits.

I’ll probably end up posting what I end up with here at some point.

Stay tuned.

If I’m wrong, let me know in the comments, okay?
