The Pragmatic Cultivation of Excellence

Dec. 15th, 2006 12:23 am Martha Stewart Lives!!!

So I was on the light rail today and there were these people talking to a crazy person. the funny thing is that they got to this point of arguing about the current predicament of Martha Stewart. The crazy person insisted that Martha was dead and the stupid person insisted she was in jail. I did not bother to tell them that she has long since been out of jail. This isn't an Isolated event but it is definitely a reminder that I need new headphones so I can block out the world again otherwise I am goign to have to do this one day.

Dec. 5th, 2006 01:35 am The room I do my schoolwork in is the coldest in the house

Since I've been dealing with romancey stuff and this quiz has been going around like the flu I figured I'd be lazy and post a quiz as an actual blog update, besides I think the results rock.

I was going to say that this is one of those moments where I hate myself and I wonder if I've made any progress at all in becoming the human being that I truly want to be, but I shouldn't have the luxury of that level of self pity so I won't do that. Of course by posting it to this blog I suppose it could be construed that I am indeed wallowing in self-pity while pretending to catch myself on a semi-public forum so as not to seem pathetic which is really pathetic and possibly true. I'm also thinking about starting a fictional drug addiction in order to better explain my behavior and thought process to myself and people who are not intimately familiar with me and whom I would like to stay that way. It sounds crazy and stupid but it smoothes out a lot of human interaction, especially during rehab.

Aug. 16th, 2006 10:59 am Persephone has finished visiting her mother

Well I'm currently in the middle of my last week of summer vacation which means many things. First and foremost it is goign to be the end of one of the best summers I've ever had second of all it means that I go back to not having time for people, especially since I have a regular job now which is conveniently located in the Sac City college theater department. I know its been a while since an actual update but I've been alternately too busy and too lazy to update. anyway I'm feeling that itch on my shoulder that means its time to play some city of villains for a while. Look forward to more updates in the future since my new schedule makes it so I might not see people for *gasp* days at a time.

So I was doing some research on the cast of the movie Forbidden zone today to see what work the actors got after the forbidden zone. According to Imdb not much, save for Danny Elfman and Herve Villechaize. As an interesting side note Forbidden Zone was the first movie Elfman composed music for. Anyway I stumbled across a new movie that The Elfman brother's are collaborating together on called The sixth element. Danny Elfman is going to be playing Satan again.

Apr. 17th, 2006 08:16 pm Sadomasochism is never having to say your sorry

So we started discussing musicals in theatre class, there really aren't a lot of people who enjoy musicals. Personally I love musical comedies. We watched Little Shop of Horrors today and I realized why musical comedy is great. Musical comedy is an art form that allows people to use the most demented humor and plotlines with Impunity. Take Little Shop for example, how else would a story about a blood drinking plant from outer-space, involving murder, revenge, domestic abuse, and sadomasochism be considered a comedy let alone a classic.

This weekend marked the end of a long period of social stagnation for me. Suffice it to say lots of people moved out of my house and I'm going to move into a bigger room in my house. I saw a lot of Beth this weekend which is good because she is a national treasure. We had a party on friday night and I got drunk and we watched sci-fi movies. Saturday I saw V for Vendetta with her, which was great. It reminded me a little of Batman Begins because it adresses similar ideas but I found V to be deeper and much more compelling. I highly recommend that people see this movie.

Mar. 22nd, 2006 06:15 am ....But I bet you tell Pollack jokes.

This was going to be a reply to the last post but I felt it was too good to get lost in the comments section.

I'm quite certain that my whiteness stems from my being raised entirely by a white woman and having minimal exposure to black culture. That definitely influences my choice of company. Of course if I was exposed to black culture more I would likely be a very different person than I am today (and for the record I am quite happy with that person). Still many people I meet expect me to behave according to that part of my heritage, white people are unfortunately the people who do this the most (thats one of the reasons I hated high school) despite the fact that they aren't able to discern my heritage off the bat like most black people can. That has to be one my favorite things about interacting with black people, The race question never comes up because they usually know and if they don't they aren't compelled to ask and they don't come up with epiphets like "halfrican". The problem I have with interacting with black people is that they often treat me like a kid brother although this likely has more to do with my youthful appearance than my ethnic background. Come to think of it I had that problem with everybody in high school, I guess in the adult world white people are easier to inspire remorse in because of a shared consciousness of guilt over their well publicized history of atrocities that they most likely picked up in elementary school when they learned about slavery and the Native Americans (Seriously we need to come up with a name for them with fewer syllables so I can have an easier time discussing them and NOT confuse them for people from India. Seriously that's bullshit that we call Native Americans Indians. Did anyone even consider that they'll have to refer to people from India from time to time? I know Cloumbus thought he landed in India, the douchebag. He was stupid and I understand that, but that doesn't mean he or somebody else could have corrected that mistake soon after. And seriously people had been to India before he had, you'd think he would have had the foresight to research somebody's notes, I'm sure the lack of elephants and silk would have been obvious. Cristopher Columbus can kiss my ass.) Also let it be known that if you don't feel bad about that at least once a year you are a racist neo nazi fuck head. At any rate this rant has gone on a little long, I have shit to do today.

I started Tech Rehearsal for "Livin' Fat" At Celebration Arts Theatre yesterday. Being in an almost totally African American production I have come to realize something about myself. I am SO white.
