A confession

October 27, 2009

A confession: I have this recurring dream that I work for Tina Fey. She still has her old job as head writer for SNL in the dream and I’m always a lowly peon. Nonetheless, I’m not gonna lie, it’s pretty amazing.

“If you want to make an audience laugh, you dress a man up like an old lady and push him down the stairs. If you want to make comedy writers laugh, you push an actual old lady down the stairs.”

One of these dreams a few months ago went all the way to the end of a week, including watching the show from monitors in a different room, to the point that it was an afterparty situation and one of the host’s friends asked me out to some club to see a midget do stand-up, and I was all pumped, and as I exited the floor I noted that Tina Fey was still in her office working, but I totally wanted to go with the host’s cute friend and see the midget do stand-up, so I skedaddled anyway, although I felt compunctions of guilt about it.

Then we were walking down this very realistic skeezy street to the comedy club, and suddenly I thought, “Oh, no! This isn’t right, I should tell him I’m married,” and I woke myself up. Cheez-its! I totally missed seeing the midget, and maybe even smoochytimes with the guy! I kill my own game in dreams constantly. I need to think about this.

No surprise: NSFW Advice from Sasha Grey

September 17, 2009

“Try anal sex. You might like it.” –Sasha Grey

Oh, Ms. Grey is so many kinds of wonderful. This is tremendously good advice, not only for the physical sake (really, do try it) but also as a life philosophy which we must particularly carry in to our sex lives: try the new, embrace it and see what you think, “be not afraid” or ashamed. Everyone’s rules are bullshit. When you blow through a red light at three a.m., you know rules are bullshit; why do you not bring that to the bedroom, where you should be your own strongest advocate?

You may think she is some self-demeaning adult film star, but Sasha Grey is more deep, intriguing, and honest than what you think. She is very bold and thoughtful and it means a lot to her to sound herself out on important issues and know her own mind. A thinker and a genuine free spirit. She’ll be around awhile. You’ll see.
