146: They Will Move To The Machines

Yesterday I mentioned that I had dabbled in youtube at one point in the distant past, and Herb was so bold as to ask for a link to my youtube channel. Looking back at what I did back then, I must admit that most of the videos I uploaded to youtube kind of sucked. There are a couple which I take some pride in, foremost of these being one entitled “Healing the Trees”.

I am not truly comfortable in front of a camera the way that I am in front of a live audience. I love being in front of a crowd, and it occurs to me that I may not be the only one out there right now who is missing live performance. In that light perhaps it is appropriate to bring back a reminiscence of what will someday soon be again.

These clips are from a show I performed back in 2012, around the same time that I wrote the screenplay which I shared last week. The full show ran for around an hour and a half. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge my co-collaborators: Daniel Steddom and Max Rymer. I have the utmost respect for both of these individuals, and am honored that they have repeatedly agreed to join me in my crazy ventures on the stage.

Should you choose to watch this video I promise that you will be confused. I also assure you that the show was very fun.

  1. I’m sorry he went to hell, but I’m glad the grim reaper cared about posture. There should be more plays when someone sits on stage and watches the audience while eating popcorn. 😊

  2. Apart from being amazed at how well everyone managed to do an American accent, I managed to giggle quite a bit at the final extract. If I was younger, still involved with a theatre, and not in lockdown, I’d pinch the idea. Good stuff.

  3. Having now watched all your videos, I hope you will post some more recent work. I am especially eager for another Lumberjack Bill segment. He doesn’t have to give more gift advice (although that would be awesome). I don’t want to typecast him.

  4. Well, that was certainly…special…I asked and you so graciously responded, so, thank you. Thanks a lot. I’m never getting that seven minutes and nine seconds back, am I?
