this and that...that and this... and some shakespeare

Today, I was trying to come up with something to write about and was kinda at a loss. Writer's block has kinda hit me square in the face like it's a paint can and  I am one of the wet bandits en route up the stairs.


[Tangent: Yes. All of my similes are 20 years old. Also, while I'm in a tangent, can we just for a minute discuss Macauley Culkin and his pizza themed Velvet Underground "cover" band.] This is a problem because I am writing for two different sites now...so seriously, I need to get my shit together...like 5 minutes ago.

Lots of stuff has been going on and so technically, I should be busting wide open with ideas, but everything seems incredbly dumb. For this reason I decided to just sit down and write and see what poured out of me. Right when I got out the laptop, I saw that one of my fellow BHS c/o '01'ers had tagged me on instagram [Tangent: Thanks Shannon!] ....that is what she tagged me in.

this was clearly taken in a bathroom stall..where people think of Kimmie.

 Wait, what? OK, I am not a football fan, but I know Eddie George is a former Titan...and not the first to come to mind when I think of the Moor of Venice. I am baffled but secretly love this terribly conceived Nashville-centric casting. Fingers crossed Iago is being played by Bob Mueller and Desdemona is gonna be the former Watson's pool girl. Oh. My. God. CAN YOU IMAGINE!?!??! I know this is but a pipe dream...but hey it could happen. That's at least what I am telling myself. Who else would you cast? [Tangent: I am fully aware that those of you not from Nashville are really confused. Sorry bout it.]

As you can  imagine this took precedence over everything I may have thought was worth addressing with good reason. I gotta let this simmer and hopefully I will be over this block in a day or so

  1. LOL!
    I saw the NSF's rendition of "MacBeth" - my FAVORITE of the Bard's plays - last January. It was SO vomitrociously overacted I had to fight the urge to throw Lady MacBeth down the stairs and take over for her. No, I can't act. Yes, it was that bad.

  2. I don't know the roles in Othello so well, but I'm voting for the Carnival Kia guy, Bart Durham, and Basil Marceaux to play something. Anything, really. Ooh - and Lisa Patton!

  3. OMG! The former Watson's girl - gasp!! Also, I just now read this post and didn't realize how much it seems like I totally copied your idea of being 100% honest about having writer's block, so just know that I didn't copy. Obviously great minds think alike.

  4. I heard he was great, actually.
    Also I humbly submit Demetria Kalidemos. Great voice, I'm sure it would be good for the stage. Plus she's Greek (and probably Orthodox), so solidarity?

I thrive on comments, so what do you think?
