On Bruises...

I promise to write and respond to comments (and emails) as soon as I can get to them but I thought I'd post this for what it's worth...

I've been climbing on roofs and ladders while painting the outside of my parent's house for the big impending move south in the next month or so. I've been packing boxes at both their house and mine. I've been lugging heavy objects all over the place. I've been climbing and scaling cliffs on my parent's land documenting the area in photos. Through all of this and more I remained fairly bruise free. Until yesterday evening when I performed in my second public ComedySportz match. It was a blast and most probably my last up here in Northern California.

Last night I discovered a very odd three inch scratch (though it's more signifigant than a scratch and less than a gash... perhaps it's a scrash?) and large bruises on my right leg.

After reviewing the video of the performance, I was able to figure out when and what caused these bruises. It was a combination of falling to the ground several times in one sketch and throwing myself from atop the ten foot or so tall stage wall six or seven times.

Art hurts.

Have no fear! I've got the video of both of my CSz performances and I don't move for over a month. Hint, hint. And it really wasn't the wall that was the problem. It was the ground that broke my falls.

Great show! :) But yes, I can see where you might have gotten the bruises - those were some pretty brutal falls! (Such an incredible actor - I wish I had some of your talent!)

AAA! I missed it! I am such a dork. Damn. And here I had it on my mental calendar and everything. Too bad my mental calendar was completely wiped by Austin margaritas during SXSW... *sigh* I guess I'll have to see you in the southlands sometime.

Dude, I'm sorry I missed the performance! I didn't know it would be your last. But alas, I had to go home for my parents' St. Pat's Day party, and I would have missed it anyway, last show or no.

Well, now I'll have that much less reason to go see them. Hope things continue to go well with your parents' place!

You know it. You love it. You can't get enough of it. Yes, it's the infamous webcam!

Times have changed and so too has the design of this site. Journey back in time with me for some redesign fun!

I have a healthy fascination with the phenomenon of events in relation to the musical Assassins.

I'm really not sure of the appeal of Mark Bakalor's site, because frankly I suspect there is none, but hell, I check it at least thrice daily, and you should too!
