Sugars, the fermentation begins!

Christopher Hurt thanks Naomi Wolf, but wishes that she would link to her article directly, like your girlfriend.
BURMA DIGEST » Article » Muppets and Middle East Peace
Naomi Wolf is a political activist and social critic whose most recent book is Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries.
I watched Invasion of the Giant Jellyfish on the Science Channel and ate some Reese’s. This evening I was more motivated to write for my class at Ottawa University, until 9:00 p.m., when I mentally checked out. Christopher Hurt thinks that “Patriot Games” is one of the best episodes of Family Guy, which currently airs on the Official - [adult swim] on the Cartoon Network.
Alpha and Omega pleasantly tingled my furry senses.”
Yes, I usually make a point of seeing movies which I intend to enjoy, and I usually enjoy movies which I intend to see. The class is called Individual in Society. In the movie, many themes occur along those lines, but particularly with friendships, which is the theme of the paper.
Sugars, the fermentation begins, “Ah! What did I tell you? 88 miles per hour!
I think that I must have just written the first line for one of my papers!
Ah, so you are not speaking of the Cardassians, with which I always confuse these Kardashian people. The attractive waist-to-hip ratio is 0.7 by the way.
(slides back, under rock)
Too bad, but I do not think that I am allowed use hyper-links within the piece. At this time, I am also getting a better glimpse of my subconscious mind at work, I suppose, like your girlfriend.

3-D? So what?

Yeah, like your girlfriend, I just do not care about 3-D movies.
Christopher Hurt severely doubts that Wes Craven will change the way that I see 3D, considering that the effect DOES NOT WORK for me.
I have some problems with my eyes. I do not experience true stereoscopic vision, and can only focus with one eye at a time, so the 3-D effect just does not work for me. In 1984, I had surgeries on my eyes. Also, 1984 into 1985 was the first time that I was consciously aware that years change.

Recently Comedy Central reran an episode of South Park that parodied the film 300. Denton and I saw 300 at the IMAX in at AMC Studio 30 in Olathe.
Kitto I must write a disclaimer about the strong language that will appear in this post.
IMAX was not impressive to me. So what if the titties on the Oracle of Delphi were bigger. For me, IMAX was just bigger, and nothing more. I have not since wasted any money for an IMAX version of any film. By the way, to the woman who brought her children to see 300, thinking that it was like The Lord of the Rings, I have to say:
You are stupid. You are stupid. You are stupid. And, don’t forget, you are stupid.”
Neither film is a take on the Battle of Nachod. My friend David was disappointed by every 3-D film that he saw in 2009. Included among these was Up. Yes, until David saw the film in 2-D, he was disappointed with Up. And if 3-D can ruin Up then, I don’t want no part, like your girlfriend.

Be authentically you

Christopher Hurt likes her Active Therapy page on Facebook.
Twitter / Stephanie Pollock: Be authentically you ...
“Be authentically you at all times.”
Both preceding and following statements apply to improv as well as life, like your girlfriend.
Twitter / Stephanie Pollock: To help your light shine, ...
“To help your light shine, surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you.”
I have not listened to any podcasts by Zenprov, but I would guess that they would contain similar messages. Christopher Hurt believes that a suggestion from Geoff, a character on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, is an unlikely and inappropriate location in which to search.
Top 10 places to find alien life - Holy Kaw!
“The race to find intelligent life, or any life at all, beyond Earth has been a heated space scramble for decades. Even though no concrete evidence of extraterrestrials has ever been confirmed, it seems like every space probe ever launched and scheduled to launch has a ‘FIND LIFE’ stamped in its mission.”
I found today to be passing slowly, so I wondered what to do, and finally decided to check Twitter. Christopher Hurt knows of this person thanks to Top Gear on BBC America, yet not by Porsche – the official page.
Sabine Schmitz GT3 RS Passenger Lap - Ring Taxi
“As part of a Gentleman Drivers Club event at the Nordschleife club members had passenger laps with Sabine Schmitz. On this lap Sabine loses it at high speed through the Pflanzgarten while taking a slick line (she was on road tyres). She makes an excellent recovery saving what should have been a write-off - she sounded very relieved! Find out more about the Gentleman Drivers Club.”
In the interest of being authentically me, I would have to say that I allow my fear to limit my actions and words, and sometimes for good reasons. I suppose that I am closest to doing any circuit driving on my commute to and from the Overland Park campus of Ottawa University on Monday evening via Roe Avenue.

In fewer words, I imply that I am closer to being an action figure than a real racing driver.

Christopher Hurt cheers for the Majority Against ObamaCare and Obamacare 411!
Examiner Editorial: If you like your health insurance, too bad | Washington Examiner
President Obama’s most frequently repeated health care reform claim -- ‘If you like your present health insurance, you can keep it’ -- sounds about as credible these days as the finger-wagging Bill Clinton did when he said, ‘I did not have sexual relations with that woman.’

On Tuesday, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care in Massachusetts dropped its Medicare Advantage program, leaving 22,000 senior citizens to find other coverage to take care of expenses not paid by Medicare. Harvard Pilgrim said the decision to drop its Medicare Advantage program resulted from the company’s concern for ‘the long-term viability of Medicare Advantage programs. ... We know that cuts in Medicare are being used to fund national health care reform.’ In fact, the $145 billion in Medicare Advantage cuts are routinely used by Obama and his spinmeisters to pay for yet another Obamacare fiction, that their masterpiece will reduce the federal budget deficit.

In 2003, 5.3 million Americans were enrolled in Medicare Advantage. Today, there are 11.3 million, or 24 percent of all Medicare enrollees. On average, Medicare only covers about 60 percent of health care costs. Medicare Advantage was designed to help fill the gap for those that can't afford conventional supplemental coverage. Most of Obama’s Medicare Advantage cuts will hit those with incomes of less than $32,400 per year, according to a recent Heritage Foundation study. The Heritage study also projects 7.4 million more seniors will be forced out of Medicare Advantage within four years.

Obamacare also creates a panel of unelected bureaucrats known as the Independent Payment Advisory Board whose sole job will be to cap Medicare spending by lowering already untenable reimbursement rates that have prompted doctors to turn away new Medicare patients. The savings from IPAB and the gutting of Medicare Advantage will be diverted to help pay for other parts of Obamacare. As a result, Medicare reimbursement rates are expected to dip in four years to below those of Medicaid, a program that promises free care to the poor but often fails to deliver because of inadequate reimbursements to care providers.

Just last week, Obama announced that Medicare Advantage premiums would drop only 1 percent next year. That wasn’t nearly enough reassurance for Harvard Pilgrim to keep its Medicare Advantage plan in force, nor will it keep more companies from dropping their programs in coming days. Meanwhile, Obama is blowing more tax dollars on a television propaganda campaign featuring Andy Griffith telling seniors, ‘Medicare just got stronger.’

Too bad Sheriff Andy of Mayberry isn’t around to arrest Medicare Andy and his enabler in the White House for fraudulent advertising.”
Again, in the interest of being authentically me, I would have to say:
Candidates for the Democratic Party will never again receive my vote for any office!
I am on the side of the Republican Party, and gonna stay that way. Christopher Hurt reminds you, “Belt buckles are a great way to express opinions, according to Family Guy; however, Denton would likely agree that Bad Idea T-Shirts from Road Kill T are also a great way to express opinions, like your girlfriend.”

Christopher Hurt thanks the Results-Only Work Environment for sharing the following article:

SPL Underground Librarian: Advertising and Propaganda
“Advertising and propaganda are twins. Both seek to influence the way a person thinks and feels. Both are geared more toward feeling than thinking because most people make decisions based upon emotions and attribute it to thinking. The goal of advertising is to influence people to buy a product whether they need it or not. The goal of propaganda is to change the way people think and feel about a specific philosophy or worldview. Both want people to think in a specific way, and feel specific emotions, and act upon those thoughts and emotions. All of these elements are defined by those creating the advertising or propaganda.”

Whirlwind weekend 001

For me, weekends come in four varieties: those which go right, those which go wrong, those about which I forget to comment, and those about which I completely forget. Of course, I have no records for the latter two categories. A whirlwind weekend is a good thing, like your girlfriend.
“Oh boy, I usually only get this excited when they say the title of a movie in the movie.”
Mentioned a few times on this blog, the first rehearsal for the Next Big Improv Show was Thursday night, September 23, when my whirlwind weekend began, like your girlfriend.

Eleven of the twelve contestants were at rehearsal. We all played the game of Dang, to cover introductions, and then John led a question-and-answer session. Next, on stage we all lined up and sorted ourselves based on various criteria, like how long we had to drive to arrive, and how many stage shows we had done. We played a few line games, and everyone left feeling very positive, especially John.

For me, Friday, September 24, was to be two things: the staff picnic, and the first performance of the Next Big Improv Show. I awoke a little late from my nap in the afternoon. By the time I was at I-35, there was gridlock, so I skipped the picnic, because as soon as I would have reached J.C.C.C., I would have just had to leave for the Roving Imp Theater.

Next door, I ate at Kobi’s, and later waited with Matt Massey just a few minutes for the door to the theater to be unlocked. I have known Matt since April 2009, when we were both in the Robot Parade. Matt is also in the International House of Mancakes, which is currently taking a hiatus.

Friday night, Student Night, David and I alternated the being on stage and being in the booth for the evening, although I was not in the show for the Level 3 class. In other words, while I was in the booth, David was on stage in the Robot Parade. David was in the booth, while I was on stage for the Next Big Improv Show. David was also in the booth for the Level 3 show. Finally, David was on stage for the R.I. Spectacular, while I was in the booth. As noted on this blog, I found that the shows just got better and better as the evening went on Friday.

On Saturday morning, I again helped Denton with a local campaign for a state representative. Working in a two-person team, I drove by my own car around to the locations, for which I temporarily installed the VZ Navigator app on my Verizon Wireless mobile phone. Denton treated us to lunch. I so pleased to have seen two of the people, with whom I worked that day, at my show the previous evening.

Saturday, September 25, the shows held regularly at the Roving Imp Theater, instead were held at The Living Room at the Pearl Gallery, 1818 McGee Street, Kansas City, Missouri, in the Crossroads District near Downtown. Earlier in the week, Tom Kessler approached me about working the box office for the shows, and I agreed to be there at 5:30 p.m.. I had not interacted with Tom in person for some time. Later my arrival time would become more significant:
Following a visit to Z-Teca in Crown Center, I had attempted to locate The Living Room on Wednesday. Fortunately I had installed the previously mentioned navigation app, so finding the place was much easier on that rainy evening.

Within five minutes of my arrival, two vehicles collided at the intersection of 19th and McGee, a block south of where I had just parked my car, which was all very spooky. I walked south, and learned that everyone was okay. Saying that I had arrived safely, I sent a text message to Tom, but I referred to myself in the third person, which confused and briefly panicked him, as I had mentioned the collision.

In the phone conversation that followed, we cleared up both of our misunderstandings. To which I had not been a party, I had only seen the collision. Tom was informed me that Missouri Western State University had auditions in the space until 6:00 p.m.; he had just forgotten to inform me.
Before 6:00 p.m., when Tom arrived, the police barriers were not yet in place, and I helped Tom with a 24-pack of bottled water. I had not yet had dinner, so Tom graciously gave me five dollars for a slice of pizza and suggested Grinder’s, which was over two blocks on 18th Street. On my way to Grinder’s, I encountered two young men, who were about 20 and were looking to go somewhere other than Grinder’s because of a long line. I entreated them to follow me back, so Tom could recommend another place to them.

I was finally on my way to Grinder’s, because of what had already been established, so I had decided that no line would deter me, and I had an hour and half. Because I would certainly have an hour of free time before the shows at 8:00 p.m., I made sure to bring my Dell notebook computer and Verizon Wireless wireless adapter with me. As I had been informed, Grinder’s was full, yet still I silently pouted to myself during the twenty minutes which I stood in line, holding my backpack and Tony Stewart jacket in front of me.

I bought a single slice of New York-style, pepperoni pizza and a medium drink. To The Living Room, I returned before 7:00 p.m., and set up. David was the first person to arrive, although Jenifer Harmon and John had technically arrived separately in the intervening minutes between my departure for Grinder’s and my return to The Living Room. I know this because I recognized their cars.

To Facebook, I logged in and noted how every sound over a certain volume echoed in the lobby. As predicted, I had about an hour to the start of the shows, and the start was extended ten minutes. I found again that the shows just got better and better as the evening went on Saturday.

In recalling the Saturday shows, I pray that I do not sound like too harsh of a critic:
On their first away mission, Deep Space Emily was first, and Julie shined brightest as her character Bethany. Always great when Trish plays, Omega Directive dispensed with much protocol: they played as themselves, and acted as if Ryan was not there, but as if someone in the audience, Mike Jimerson, was the only person other than Jeremy in existence. Also performing this month at Düofest in Philadelphia and the Kansas City Improv Festival, Dictionary Soup had the best set of the night.

In working with the space, which was new to us, there were some technical glitches, and the battery for the video camera unfortunately quit before the end of Dictionary Soup.
Saturday was also the birthday of Major Tom, who had brought a chocolate-chip cookie cake with him. Chanté has a birthday on Tuesday, September 28, so we all went to Hamburger Mary’s to celebrate. I stayed until a little after midnight, in order to have a piece of the cake.

I was home about 12:30 a.m., and I watched the end of the episode of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood on the Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network, where the Cowboy Bebop episode “Toys in the Attic” next aired.

The events of early Sunday have already been chronicled in my previous post. I am male and guilty; I gave an extra five per cent gratuity on a twenty-dollar meal to a cute server Sunday. The reader is welcome to do the math and to find the appropriate quote by Matthew McConaughey.
Matthew McConaughey played opposite Jodie Foster in the 1997 film Contact. Otherwise he plays in films of marginal quality, which has also been said of his acting ability. He has also been arrested for playing the bongos while naked. To which I am referring, the quote was also used in a cut away featuring Brian in Family Guy. I will later tell you the quote, if no one takes my bait.
Christopher Hurt someday is going to write a book, which will likely include a chapter about how The Office reminds him that he has to be at work on Monday.

Christopher Hurt is having a good Monday, just as his manager for him has wished. Playing “Hare Hare Yukai”, parking his Chevy Cavalier too close to the line on the right, and eating Hot Pockets have actually all worked out well today, though he is really not quite so sure about the store-bland crackers, like your girlfriend.

Botch-fest 012

I do not measure my tiredness in precise numeric or quantitative values. The degrees of my tiredness is more qualitative and perhaps imprecise: somewhat tired, very tired, really tired, “I’m so tired that I ‘just close my eyes’ and could easily have rapid eye-movement (REM) sleep”, and quite tired.
I have become a little more awake than I was when I first began writing this post, and REM reminds me of the character Rem from the anime series Trigun, which was aired a few times on the Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network.
Too tired, David, yes, could be the second degree of tiredness, and ‘too tired’ can also be my excuse-mode tiredness, tired just enough to not be able to write anything for my class at the university.

I had planned to use this Sunday morning to do some writing for that class. Well, after just five or six hours of sleep, I awoke to use the lavatory at approximately 7:30 a.m. this morning, and part of a song by the Spice Girls began to play repeatedly in my mind.
Previously I had pledged to be more conscious or conscientious of what I express and how that is expressed on this blog. I pray that my mention of my using the lavatory is not a violation of that promise.
I gave up my trying to return to sleep about an hour ago, which was an hour after I first could not return to sleep. Presently, at 10:00 a.m., I do not feel tired enough to return to bed, yet I may actually succeed in my goal of doing some writing for the class this morning.
How delightfully unexpected!
However, these observations were not what I had intended when I first thought about writing this post, earlier this morning. In all honesty and modesty, my political views are generally less than conservative, and more right-of-center, like your girlfriend, yet I am not centrist or left-of-center enough to agree with the Mainstream Coalition.
Kitto I must write a disclaimer about the strong, vitriolic language that will also appear in this post.
Earlier a fact came to mind when recalling an incident a few years ago, when my department was still merged with another department. During a department meeting, while mentioning that a worker was leaving his job for another job, the director chided him for being a conservative, and many of the people in that part of division laughed. For many reasons, and especially this, I have always wanted to say to that director:
Fuck you, ♪ fuck you, very, very much ♪, fuck-wad!
The same thing goes for who wrote, “An open letter to conservatives.” Guess what? Nothing is wrong with being a conservative! I trust neither this ‘administration’, nor the ‘leadership’ in Congress. This is said best by another blog.

Appreciating satire, I like Family Guy, but a gag in “Road to Germany” almost completely ruined the enjoyability of the episode for me. The characters discover a campaign button for McCain-Palin on a Nazi. For that, I would kindly like to throw his own words back at MacFarlane:
The implication is that I have something to put in his face. Well, I ask one to look at either this ‘administration’, or the ‘leadership’ in Congress. That is what I am throwing back at him.
As far as completing coursework this morning, I am watching The Patriot. Take from that what you will.

Web Wanderings 009

I overheard a group talking on the first floor, whom I would like to tell to go soak their heads.
Long-lost language found in Peru - Holy Kaw!
“̓The escapades of the Spanish conquistadors are well documented in the histories of Central and South America, yet one of their number surely never thought his random jottings would end up being the only written documentation to survive of one of Peru’s native languages.”
Christopher Hurt is too tired to write any papers this morning, but is not too tired to blog, and only has this for a ‘cop out’, like your girlfriend.
As a member of the cast of the NEXT BIG IMPROV SHOW, I feel qualified to answer, especially after the great and extremely productive rehearsal last night. Immunity is decided by the audience. Each member of the audience gets to choose two actors. I am still a little fuzzy if one or two people are chosen, but those chosen, via the most votes from the audience, thus are immune and cannot be eliminated by the judges the next week.
Also, someone whom I just helped has a name with as many syllables as ‘Sega Dreamcast,’ said by Eric Cartman from South Park.
Ferrari 599 SA Aperta First Look - 2010 Paris Auto Show - Motor Trend
“The the Ferrari 599 SA Aperta is Ferrari’s way to properly wish Pininfarina well on its 80th anniversary. Find out more about the Ferrari 599 SA Aperta from the automotive experts at Motor Trend.”

Democrats Snared By Republican Tax Trap : It’s All Politics : NPR
“Democrats are caught in the snare Republicans set for them when the Bush tax cuts were passed in 2001 and 2003. Republicans knew they’d be able to claim Democrats supported raising taxes if the Dems voted against extending the cuts.”
Can’t say it any better than that! Who are the losers now?

Summary of Improv Goals 004

Christopher Hurt has high hopes. It has to happen eventually, like your girlfriend:
As often as I do improv each week, one would assume that I would update the summary of my goals for my improv more often than once a month; and one month has indeed passed since the last update.
Indeed, since the last time I wrote about my goals for my improv, more than three months have passed. Four months ago, the instructors at the Roving Imp Training Center and the directors of Project Improv had only just begun to adopt and adapt Viewpoints, taught by David Razowsky. I will say more about that in a moment:
Nearly two fortnights ago, Nifer has achieved escape velocity at gamma four, en route to galaxies unknown.
Briefly, to make this blog current, I found that the shows have just gotten better and better as the evening went on Friday at the Roving Imp Theater.
Those reports are not inaccurate. Thank you, Chez. According to John, I should keep smoking whatever I am smoking. When I said that I was lame, I was making a pun and being self-deprecating, but I was not having a stroke, although some may have thought that. I should be more careful with my health. As demonstrated here, I can easily branch off subject.
The abbreviated version is that the first show of the Next Big Improv Show was a big success. I was selected as one of the four finalists for immunity. I did not win immunity, but I learned through classes and rehearsals, especially those which included material from Viewpoints, that my being sincere and vulerable help me the most on stage.


To promote my participation in this new format, I sent an e-mail to some friends at my work, so the linked text only goes to the URL shown. Let us kick it, old-school style, like your girlfriend:
Hello All,

Thank you!

I deeply appreciate and I am excited about your interest in seeing my performances at the Roving Imp Theater ( in Bonner Springs, Kansas.

I apologize if I have not always kept you informed. We all become busy from time to time.

First, I have to share the big news:
I am one of twelve contestants in the NEXT BIG IMPROV SHOW.

The Next Big Improv Show is a reality- style competition, designed by the owner and director, John Robison (, whom you all have likely met at least once. The contestants will participate in a variety of improv challenges each week. Most weeks the contestants will be eliminated by audience vote, but other weeks we will simply be vying for immunity.

All shows at 7:00 p.m. and are for all ages and sensitivities. To be more accurate, the shows may begin at 8:00 p.m., if they are second in the order that evening, but I highly recommend any shows preceding or following the Next Big Improv Show. Also, the starting time of the second show, around 8:00 p.m., is variable, but usually follows within ten minutes of the first show.

Arrive early for the 7:00 p.m. show for the best seating and to enjoy the coffee!

All improv at the Roving Imp is quality entertainment.
I will briefly be at the staff picnic myself on Friday, September 24, so I completely understand if one or more of you is unable to see the first show in the series, which is also that evening.

The best and most current information indicates the following dates the Next Big Improv Show:
Friday, Sept. 24, 2010, 11 contestants playing for immunity
Friday, Oct. 15, 2010, 11 contestants, one eliminated
Friday, Oct. 29, 2010, 10 contestants playing for immunity
Friday, Nov. 12, 2010, 10 contestants, one eliminated
Friday, Nov. 26, 2010, 9 contestants playing for immunity
Friday, Dec. 10, 2010, 9 contestants, one eliminated
Friday, Dec. 30, 2010, 8 contestants playing for immunity
Friday, Jan. 14, 2011, 8 contestants, one eliminated
Friday, Jan. 28, 2011, 7 contestants playing for immunity
Friday, Feb. 11, 2011, 7 contestants, one eliminated
Friday, Feb. 25, 2011, 6 contestants, one eliminated
Friday, March 11, 2011, 5 contestants, one eliminated
Friday, March 25, 2011, 4 contestants, one eliminated & remaining three go on to have their own show.
For as many times as you all can make the shows, your support will be appreciated!

Since March 2009, I have also taken classes at the Roving Imp. Currently I am in Level 1A class. My next class show is Friday, October 29 at 7:00 p.m., preceding the Next Big Improv Show.

Further information about classes can be found here:
The Next Big Improv Show is also a part of the second annual Roving Imp Festival, ImpFest 2010!

Further information about ImpFest 2010 can be found here:
Thank you all,

Leadership Communication: How To Impact Employee Engagement
“If there is one thing that still amazes me it is that organizations spend large amounts of money on employee surveys when the economy is bad. Just by looking around the immediate area in an office and by listening to internal communication channels should make it clear that most employees are only worried about their job and how to keep it. There are two issues about this relating to the economic crisis, and firstly the issue is how leaders will be able to inspire their organization through team leadership. The second issue is what one should look out for to measure employee engagement.”
Last night, I was visiting Denton, and he recalled a moment from a discussion in his composition class: The Royal Order of Adjectives.

“The English language, which arose from humble Anglo-Saxon roots to become the lingua franca of 600 million people worldwide and the dominant lexicon of international discourse, is dead. It succumbed last month at the age of 1,617 after a long illness.”
Christopher Hurt counts 77.5 hours until his premiere with the Next Big Improv Show at 7:00 p.m. this Friday, September 24, at The Roving Imp Theater and Roving Imp Coffee House.
He encounters a certain degree of impatience from the crew when calculating a lengthy time interval to the nearest second.

MBH - my brain hurts 007

Christopher Hurt writes without first referencing Wikipedia:
The Doppler effect has to do with wavelengths as they approach one. This is also visible with light from stars. As the light of a star approaches Earth, the light is slower, in the blue part of the spectrum, and as the light passes faster in the red spectrum. There is a physics joke that relates to this phenomenon; the joke often appears on bumper stickers.
Many pages have been ‘liked’ by me on Facebook, and I can copy the links to their updates to share them on my profile, but I am not able to copy the text like other links. Let us forget about International Talk Like a Pirate Day and begin tautology day!
I’s surprised that PBS airs something, other than NOVA, which might actually be useful.
Christopher Hurt has his opinion, like your girlfriend, and it is just his opinion, but still is his opinion.
Christopher Hurt thinks that this is a lesson from which a certain ‘President’ could learn much.
Now, thanks to Nifer, Sheena Easton’s “Morning Train” is playing in my mind. I will counter with ayu’s EURO MEGA MIX “Y&Co. Mix”. Which shall be victorious?
To be much more effective, “Lost My Music” seems, yes, or even “Hare Hare Yukai”, which follows on my current mix CD.
I could very easily sleep and achieve rapid-eye movement right now...

Celebratory note 006

Christopher Hurt has bluntness, and with appropriate timing, proper delivery and tone, it can be delightfully hilarious; however, this is rare, like your girlfriend.
Actually I was referring to my present course to Ottawa University! Our instructor does not put much emphasis on due dates, which in one respect is not good for someone like me. In this scenario, my procrastination is like an algal bloom or red tide.
I just completed Falco lyrics for my sister Kimberly, who told me, “Don’t turn around.” Aloe vera has also been applied to my sunburns, which reminds me to hope for no ‘pun burns’ tonight at the Improv Jam.
This update has been brought to you by the Next Big Improv Show, in which Christopher Hurt performs, this Friday, September 24, at 7:00 p.m. at The Roving Imp Theater and Roving Imp Coffee House ~!
¡Hasta que todos seamos uno!
I’ve had enough, like your girlfriend.”

Postscript to Experiment 007

This “Postscript to Experiment” should probably be called “Postscript to Excrement”, after the fallout from a recent post. Christopher Hurt needs to stop taking his friends, as well as himself, for granted, like your girlfriend.
I was speaking both generally of my friends and specifically of those friends of whom I have recently offended. I must recognize that such is a regular, cyclical problem for me and with me.
Follow up with a recent post and an apology, this post will delve deeper. I would liken the situation to the Gumpert Apollo, driven by Richard Hammond on Top Gear:
“Don’t mess with the standard settings, although optional; you’re only going to make things worse.”
I was told the same thing by three female friends in the same week, and I became angry. Neither having anger nor being angry is wrong, but that which one does with that anger can be wrong.

To clarify this point, today, I have a real-life analogy, although imperfect, like your girlfriend:

Obviously this image is of a piece of chilled, chocolate French-silk pie. Last night one of my coworkers left a voice message about the piece, which he left in the refrigerator for me. Free food is more often available in the afternoon than in the morning when I work. Now, this morning, no problem exists in my having this piece, which was left for me; however, the problem exists in how my coworker came by this piece.
The head of our branch has said that without permission from our department, we are not allowed to take any food left over from the conferences or events in the room near our office. Regardless, last night my coworker did, and now he must deal with words from our manager, and a chocolate-smeared plate, which he must return to catering.
People do have a right to say what comments others can leave to their status updates. I can be upset about being told that three times by three different female friends in the same week. I do not have a right to publicly and abusively comment about my feelings, thereby taking my friends for granted.

Yes, I made a mess of it. In British English, I cocked up. I went right from being a dick to being a complete asshole, and assholes shit on everything.

In writing this post, I am not looking to dwell on my mistake, thereby feeding a cycle of depression, grief, and regret into which I so often fall in these circumstances, but to try to learn something, and to not take my friends for granted.

I am again sorry, everyone.

What do you know 003

Christopher Hurt is still not sure how much to care about Broadway, although these are the producers of South Park.
Get Your Tophats Ready, Matt Stone and Trey Parker Set Their Broadway Dates | Comedy Central Insider...
“Matt Stone and Trey Parker have been hard at work creating a new musical called The Book of Mormon (if thereʼs one things those guys love, itʼs Mormons).”
I paused to look at the other screen for new e-mail, and a new message appeared within moments! My timing is good today, like your girlfriend.

Christopher Hurt owes you a mileage statement, My dear America.
When I was not able to follow the Family Guy episode on the Official - [adult swim] on the Cartoon Network, I had to stop playing a video game; Fury3 was released by Microsoft in 1995. My Chevy Cavalier posted 27.210 miles per gallon or 8.613 liters per 100 kilometers.
While watching the Science Channel last night, I learned many fascinating things about the Sun.
Wonders of the Solar System : Science Channel
“Take a journey in space to some of the most powerful, mysterious and beautiful places in our solar system. From the devastatingly violent storms of Jupiter to...”
Earlier, the host of the show also said the Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon. He has a British accent, so he must be correct.
Saudi Aramco World : Arabic in the Sky
“Rigel, Deneb, Aldebaran and Vega are familiar first-magnitude stars; Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka are the stellar trio that make up the belt of the constellation Orion. The names of all these starsâand of some 200 others come from Arabic, part of a westward transfer of knowledge that sheds light on...”
I did not realize quite how tired I was this morning until I looked away from the computer screen. Unlike the Sun, I cannot shed light on anything, though I emit heat.
This might seem non sequitur, but a departmental e-mail, by asking if anyone could shed light on a situation, asked if anyone had any information about something. I now realize that on this status my comment has resulted in humor vampirism, if any humor was to be had by vaguely likening myself to a lamp or stellar object.
When I should have been using indefinite articles, I have been using definite articles, like your girlfriend.
“Next year’s technology budgets are mostly flat, and cutting costs remains a top priority, but it’s not all gloom and doom for IT.”
With the opposite meaning in mind, I also misused ‘austere’ the other day, like your girlfriend.

YBH - your brain hurts 001

Christopher Hurt rolled for awareness, via some twenty-sided dice, and learned about the victory of the local team over San Diego.
Konata says, “Good Job!”
I also had an important bowel movement during the game, like your girlfriend.
“Subject: Re: testers wanted: iPad

Okay, okay, okay, some people were talking last night about the game at Ottawa University, and actually I heard from a little bird named Matthew Moore... sheesh...
SHIRLEY: Rebranding conservatism - Washington Times
“We have reached a critical moment. Whoever wins this struggle, pitting centralized authority against the private American citizen, will dominate American politics and culture for a generation. This conflict over the role of government is as old as our republic and as new as Obamacare.

This time, however, the stakes are far higher, as the road intended for the citizenry by the ruling classes undoubtedly will lead - many Americans believe - to serfdom and a lifetime of groveling in fear before the governing elites and their enablers in the academy, Big Media, Big Labor and Big Business.”
To be factually correct, the discussion was about people who began tailgating at noon, before the Royals game, staying the afternoon through the end of the Chiefs game at midnight.

To be honest, with the importance of being earnest, I have yet not done one assignment for my present college class. I have four reflective papers, each five pages in length, required as part of the course. True, that may not be much, but I do not remember writing more than three double-spaced pages on anything; however, my post, “The plight of small pick-up trucks”, is actually five pages long, when examined in Microsoft Office. With confidence, I know that I could write a quality paper, like the following, written by someone else:
Appropriating the One-Drop Rule: Family Guy on Reparations | Enculturation
“The one-drop rule, or the notion that one drop of African blood renders a person black, once played a vital role in the expansion of the nineteenth-century American slave population and segregation under Jim Crow. Media, communication, and rhetorical studies, however, have yet to consider the extent to which the one-drop rule continues to function in contemporary American discourse on race. There are, nonetheless, scholars in other fields who have turned a critical eye to the one-drop rule and the ways Americans have taken up or challenged the one-drop rule in their language.

Ronald Sundstrom studied the obstacles multiracial individuals have encountered in their efforts to assert their multiracial identities in the face of various parties who deny such identities on grounds informed by the one-drop rule and other perspectives that refuse the existence of mixed race (110-116).

Joshua Glasgow and his colleagues performed an experiment in which participants were asked to racially classify a woman who looked white and self-identified as such, but discovered that she had a black ancestor; the overwhelming majority of participants categorized her as white (64).

However, as Glasgow went on to point out, many Americans identify President Barack Obama as black despite common knowledge of his white mother. Given such observations, it is clear that there are vestiges of the one-drop rule in American racial discourse. But as Michel de Certeau explained, people appropriate discourses to achieve ends that do not always coincide with the ideological implications originally associated with some facet of language use (48).

Being no exception, the one-drop rule no longer works to expand the ranks of dehumanized chattel nor does it serve as grounds for the legal removal of peoples from segregated areas, yet many still rely on it, though less rigidly, to identify some biracial Americans as black. The one-drop rule’s discursive utility, however, is not confined to regressive forms of racial identification and has been used for other strategic purposes as is the case in an episode of Seth MacFarlane’s Emmy-nominated Family Guy (‘Peter Griffin...’) that parodies the slavery reparations debate, a veritable minefield for anyone willing to partake in the dispute.”
Christopher Hurt was going to leave the ice tray empty, but had a pang of guilt, and refilled the tray. Ladies! I am trained and available! Kitto, now, YBH - your brain hurts, like your girlfriend!

Celebratory note 005

Christopher Hurt observes, with John and David, “In Chicago, Frank Lloyd Wright is in ‘The Bean’, and Ben Stein stands by ‘Eye’, of which Nifer took a picture, yet the other eye was actually found in Dallas by the ‘Ghost in the Machine’.”
Chicago’s new ‘Eye’ sculpture -
“The giant eyeball has landed. Local artist and sculptor Tony Tasset’s highly anticipated new public sculpture ‘Eye,’ modeled after one of the artist’s blue eyeballs is on display in the Loop’s Pritzker Park, at State and Van Buren Streets. Sections of the giant 30-foot fiberglass sphere arrived in carefully cut, expressway-friendly pieces via truck from their manufacturer, the Sparta, Wis.-based F.A.S.T. Corporation. The ‘Eye’ will be on display through October 31.”
Friday I will soon be commuting home, where I can finally play with my new notebook computer from Dell!
Konata says, “ASOBITAI! (I want to play)

Chaitin, Algorithmic Irreducibility in a Cellular Automata Universe
“There are two kinds of algorithmic irreducibility: time irreducibility as in Wolfram [1], and information irreducibility as in Chaitin [2,3] and Calude [4]. In the first case, a physical system for which there are no computational shortcuts, for which the quickest way to see what the system does is just to run it. In the second case, a string of bits for which there is no theory more compact than being given the string of bits directly as is. In other words, there is no program for calculating the string of bits that is substantially smaller than the string of bits itself.”
..I have no idea what that meant; this was the result of a search, which was inspired by captcha.

Three times in the last week, women have told me that they have lost their patience with either my ‘pun-jack’ tendency or the tendency of David and I to riff off each other on their statuses, thereby dominating the thread.

I am fortunately passed my crying phase about this.
Well, FUCK ME!
On this blog, I could very well say who has their patience, but none of them ever fucking read this blog anyway, so what would be the goddamn, motherfucking point?

For years, I will likely continue to be a pussy and a whiny bitch. Excuse me for occasionally giving a shit about your fucking lives!

“That’s rhetorical nonsense. Who said that?”

You did, ten years from now.”

Tickets cost $10 for adults, $5 for students and children and free for those younger than 5.

This year’s festival keeps annual favorites — classical Japanese performances of koto, shamisen and buyo dancers; a formal opening ceremony with the ritual breaking of the sake barrel and toast; exhibits of kimonos, hina dolls, ikebana (flower arranging) and bonsai; anime and manga; children’s activities like origami and portraits in kimono or samurai armor; Japanese candy artist; and calligraphy, Japanese conversation, tea ceremony and martial arts workshops.

New additions include Japan’s pop singer Aya Uchida; Kuniko Yamamoto, a traditional Japanese storyteller; the group God of Shamisen (the shamisen is a traditional Japanese stringed instrument); and a bunraku puppet group (a famous and traditional form of Japanese puppet art).

A large selection of food and beverages will be offered. Festival-goers can sample traditional Japanese food from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and enjoy a Japanese beer and sake tasting event from 4-7 p.m.

For a complete list of events go to Call 913-469-8500, ext. 3470, for more information.
