Just Stop

Seriously. Just stop.

But, I digress. I'll get back to it.

I think I want to get on stage again. Lit-ra-lly.

I did it several times with my friend James' encouragement at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe on the LES back in 2002, I think. James is a master of storytelling, so I trusted him and he pushed me on the stage. And I was nervous as shit, but it was perfectly gratifying. And oddly satisfying. I did five minutes each on my family, clowns, and guns.

Obviously, my experience with each and all.

And I killed.

Imagine how much I could do on photography...

I've been listening to a lot of "What The Fuck," which is Marc Moran's podcast where he interviews fellow comedians about the art of comedy - the philosophy of comedy - and how hard it is to basically express yourself, in a humorous OR non-humorous way.


Anyway, back to "stopping it,"

I want to stop it. For a good reason. For to save my life.

And gentlemen never tell...
