a protester explains how police mislead protesters to get them all trapped and arrested
I figured I should write down what happened today, before I forget or before too many stories get muddled together.
My friend, my partner, and I arrived at Zucotti…
The instant I logged on I saw TF SNL spoilers, but I got off, and now it’s KILLING me because I want to see it fresh but I have to wait for Hulu and even then sometimes stuff gets scrubbed HOWDARETHEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FEEYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!*glurg*
I put on a totally fun messy little dog & pony show tonight @ the Creek 3.29 miles from Tina Fey in her SNL dress rehearsals. Just being a little comedy moth around the big light that I could see from the Creek was really sublimely enjoyable.
Will and I went into NYC@ noon to do this thing Kurt Braunholer is part of creating where they take you, split you into two teams of people, blindfold you, throw you in vans and drop you in the middle of NYC with no map, a leader guide who sets the rules, which are fluid, and there are challenges along the way….and you get back to your starting point. We walked through three boroughs and successfully finished. Shots, a photo booth and then a dash across town to the show. It was called the Urban Disorientation Project. If you hear of it in your city GO!
It was insane amounts of fun. Everyone we were paired with was really interesting and fun. I ran into a big Peter Aguero bear-hug on the subway, and he saw me endure a random Karaoke challenge where I managed to do a really fun spontaneous “Forgot About Dre”…an on-the-fly-edit without the Eminem’s chorus’s, for brevity’s sake. Although oddly, whenever I do that part, it’s always with a New Jersey Aunt type lady accent. I think it words really well because he’s complaining about being underappreciative of a role model, which is TOTALLY an Aunt thing to be talking about all up in your face.
The Three-Way Show at the Creek went off with like five hitches but still ended up being a hilarious show! People hung out, ate, drank….nice to fill a whole day with fun & company like that. It’s been a while since I handled more than four hours at a time of company. The drive home was quick and now I’m fading. Thanks Creek. Thanks Tina. Thanks Comedy. Thanks Other Comedy Nerds. -Kathleen
