give me all the flickering lights!
tiny specs of fluttering rays
and city glitters shimmering
but only from far away.
i want them all it’s an addiction
i want the christmas lights buried in snow
and the blips in science fiction
films from years ago.
give me all the night sky’s twinkling sprinkles
and the red pulsing eyes
on tvs that standby
fading, flirting in and out
like a game of cat and mouse.
bits of foil in the distance
blowing kisses from the sun to me and
showing no resistance to the photons
that consistently pass notes on
from one lover to the other
like cupids tiny brothers.
give me all the flickering lights.
light every candle and wave every phone
glinting and bleeping and
imprintining glowing circuses
that linger while I’m sleeping.
an orchestra of weeping light
swan singing like star crossed choirs
who play themselves to me
it’s like they’re both tickling me.
…was that stupid? SO WHAT?
Never Not Funny | Pardcast-a-thon | 11.23.12
I’ve been avoiding these Never Not Funny photos for a very, VERY, long time… mostly because I never had the time to sit down and sort through the 500+ photos I took.
So until I get through them, here is Jon Hamm spinning Jimmy Pardo around.
You’re making it really hard to know what to take seriously these days.
It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.
You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.
But in real life, you can’t avoid doing things. We have to earn a living, do our taxes, have difficult conversations sometimes. Human life requires confronting uncertainty and risk, so pressure mounts. Procrastination gives a person a temporary hit of relief from this pressure of “having to do” things, which is a self-rewarding behavior. So it continues and becomes the normal way to respond to these pressures.
Particularly prone to serious procrastination problems are children who grew up with unusually high expectations placed on them. Their older siblings may have been high achievers, leaving big shoes to fill, or their parents may have had neurotic and inhuman expectations of their own, or else they exhibited exceptional talents early on, and thereafter “average” performances were met with concern and suspicion from parents and teachers.
This totally justifies every excuse I’ve been giving myself from not doing that thing I’m supposed to do.
ILLUSTRATORS: Draw visuals that go with the song - be as creative as you’d like!
ANIMATORS: Take visuals from hitRECord & put them into motion for this Short Film.
CINEMATOGRAPHERS: Grab your cameras & shoot some winter imagery.
VIDEO EDITORS: Cut together visuals from the site. Specifically, check out the “RE: Snow” collaboration for some wintery resources.
VOCALISTS: Sing some Harmonies or RECord “Ooh”s & “Ahh”s so they can be remixed together to simulate the sound of breath.
INSTRUMENTALISTS: It’d be great to have some Electronic Beats added, in addition to other Instruments & Sound Effects.
I’d love to talk to comedians/funny people/anyone and have a job getting paid to do it.
