Comedy, sitcoms, music

 
I tried to do comedy this week, but couldn't get a spot. Oh well. I am probably not performing in the near future. I should write more screenplays and play with my music production software if I am doing anything in the arts. This will be the goal for the next three months. I new have acquired two industry level cameras. I should actually work out how to film some productions, by that I mean actual planning to film.

I suddenly have the urge to crowd fund an over the top, crazy sitcom, but obviously low budget. I don't know, maybe this could be a future goal. I could fill it with some really fucked up characters and the whole thing will be chaos. This is a good idea.

I could go through a network (well no, but hypothetically) but maybe crowd funding comedy makes sense. I heard a theory that sitcoms aren't funny nowadays due to political correctness. I am not sure how true this is, but I have watched some sitcoms recently, they seem like dramas. Although I laughed very hard at a Will And Grace scene recently. I am friends with a very big TV enthusiast and she always says sitcoms aren't funny anymore. So, what the fuck happened? They once were. I loved Becker, Titus, Will And Grace. Very happy the last one is revived. How did we get from those to today's unfunny shows? Was it political correctness? The absence of a laugh track? Though Arrested Development was good, and it didn't have one. Being a performer I know how infectious laughter can be. It's possible people would laugh more with a laugh track. Which direction I'll go with this, I don't know. Asking Facebook, though in the past it has proven to be fuck all help to things that actually matter to me. I had two problems watching a few series of Cougar Town. First again, not that funny, more like a drama. Second the absence of young hot guys, there was only one in the main cast and not even guests, at least in later seasons. Fucking pathetic for something called Cougar Town. May as well be called Middle Aged People Hang Out, Town. Though less catchy!

Maybe I should just work on a pilot episode in between other artistic projects.

OK spoke to the TV enthusiast. She said it's probably more to do with must having likable characters instead of having sitcoms focus on comedy. There's probably something to this; why wouldn't you have a sitcom focus on comedy? That seems stupid for starters. We don't need to overblow the likeable characters and story telling. That's what dramedies are for. Sure you need these things to an extent, but situation comedies should focus on comedy, fucking duh???

Anyway since most sitcoms are cancelled after two years, maybe again I should just crowd fund a sitcom, some sketches, or both and not bother with the networks.

About political correctness, sure I complain about it but people are also quick to blame it on everything in society. Sometimes it's not the "feminist nazis" that is are problem, you're just not that funny. I am sick of comedians like Bill Maher and Jerry Seinfield whining about political correctness and college campuses. A good comedian should say fuck it I'm doing what I want anyway. I think comedians; both local and in the US are not aware of the power of the internet. You don't necessarily need TV. The internet alone can be a very powerful promotional tool. I am now mixing vents. The locals should accept my offers to develop online promotion tools. Back to Bill Maher, he did lose his show once. However political correctness is not something you can magically change, so your best solution is to find ways around it rather than constantly bitch about it.

This is posted Monday due to insomnia, had it most nights last week but hopefully I've solved my pain problem. Having it Saturday night was a different origin, night out, had to work computer, trying not to throw up. I didn't! Also had regular pains, but that is happening much less since I am putting my leg in different positions, again hopefully it is solved. Went to a party, they got me to do music. If I had known I would have finished my DJ software so I didn't have to suddenly change songs. Couldn't find half of the songs on the computer! My DJ friend hates requests, although dealing with drunk people is funny. One took three minutes to think of a song going ummmmmmm... almost have it... ummmmmmm the entire time, sorry but that was fucking hilarious, I didn't have her song, or the majority of songs requested. Perhaps what my friend says, "if you want requests you should get a juke box not a DJ" has some validity. Although maybe a solution is getting my DJ automation software going. Though I like DJing. Clearly I need to get more songs or a streaming service if integrating requests.

2018

 
I would say happy new year but that would mean wishing people joy and happiness.

This has turned into a I'll post whenever the fuck I get around to it blog. I'll try to do every two weeks on average.

I'm in hibernation mode. Did go out for new years. Went to 3 bars. Enjoyed the last but then they changed the music. Think I enjoyed listening to Pulzar FM more in the van coming home. Someone said Jesus loves me, well if that were true I'd be much richer and get loads more sex. Lately I'm getting annoyed when people randomly throw religion at me. I know I shouldn't but can't help it. Also if Jesus loves everyone he's obviously not very selective. I am very selective, I only love myself... Also my family, and a few other people.
New years goals. THESE ARE NOT RESOLUTIONS!
Take public holidays off or acquire them for when I need them.
Launch my music site.
Learn more music production.
Work on starting a film production company.
create documentation for about eight projects. Oh fuck! I am currently programming a tool to semi automate this work.
Launch Windows software, as well as web based stuff.
Launch an accessible places directory.
I was going to run an open mic night but I am probably too busy, we'll see. This is probably the only way I'll do more gigs unless I'm hired or have an overseas trip. I am improving my software capabilities in regards to live subtitles and laugher analysts. Maybe I'll do some gigs to test.
Get employees and work on marketing automation.
Set time goals for some of these.
Probably go on an international trip.
Buy some crypto currencies. Also finish software for financial trading.
Upgrade computers
Start mobile development
Buy at least one new phone
Do other work/stuff I'm interested in.

Quite the list! This year I need to be focused on creating documentation, launching stuff and hiring employees rather than constantly adding new features to stuff I never get around to promoting. I need to limit my time on new features and get things market ready.

I wish guys would stop coming on to me online! Had to reject 3 people in two months! I prefer to find my own! I must do more of that this year. No interest in a relationship though.

Sia 2017, comedy

 
Monday I am going to Auckland, made up about 2.5 days of before and will probably work Saturday. I am back to working full days but insomia came back, don't know if it's related. Will see. Apparently some people work less nowadays, though generally I like my job.

Using time away to do some research.

Tuesday I went to a Sia concert. Support acts were good, apart from the second one mentioning Auckland every five minutes; does she think we forget where we are? Her music was good though. Sia's act was having music videos acted out which was amusing and weird. Had my favourite mini donuts but sat on one pack. Never leave things on my seat. Oh I absolutely hated the wheelchair platform, too far away from the Stage. If I buy a general admission ticket I should be allowed in the general admission section. Fucking stupid namby pamby policies. I wonder if I should complain to the culture arts and minister, who is also the prime minister, don't see why not!

Thursday I went home. Friday i am seeing a friend. Sunday a BBQ.

People were complaining about Sia because she just sang. Fuck them. I was frequently laughing at the dancers. Maybe you should fucking research shows before you buy tickets if you're pissy about things. Complaining that a singer just sang is like complaining that I am a super bitch. Not everyone can be Pink! The only show I really hated was the Vengaboys but even then I really enjoyed the support acts. I do sometimes go to shows without knowing what to expect, but concerts are a good excuse to travel; I am easy going.

I am thinking about my own comedy night series. Just because I have project ADHD, and to support the comedy community. Apparently people think I don't. Total bullshit! I keep telling people I am a nerd. If they wanted help with technology all they need to do is ask. In fact I have made countless offers. I think that people expect me to be something I'm not. I also don't think that the local scene harnesses technology to its potential. They're working on old models, mostly. The world is changing, it's worthwhile to try and change with it. Not saying do away with offline shows. However digitally selling sets/membership sites and newsletters/apps could be very good for revenue and promotion. I am doing work in this area already. People say that I should optimize my sets; what better way than to run my own gigs. There will some revenue and work going around, including for others. I don't recall being hired in NZ this year, but that's fine as I have been busy developing technology and was hired in Brisbane! I'll look into my own gigs and build up technology and assets (like amps) at the same time. Comics need stage time so I'm helping the community too. If I get too busy to perform I'll still run the gigs, they'll again be useful to develop technology. What did I tell you? I am a massive nerd! People should fucking appreciate nerds more! I'm in search for a willing wheelchair accessible venue. I'm finally getting my own commercial voice but that's a subject for next time.

Concert, DJ

 
Yes, this is a week late. deal with it. Was too busy last week and swapped my Sunday to Friday for a DJ gig Saturday. Lots of work to prepare. Unfortunately I couldn't do it with my own software as intended. Will take a look at the DJ software I developed next month. I tend to break from projects when things don't go well, had lots of breaks from eye tracking! Project load hasn't decreased but now I can focus on projects. I also committed myself to producing a radio show, but what's one more thing to do?

Three Fridays ago I went to a concert. Went for Jason Derulo but also enjoyed Jonas Blue. Other acts were crap. In segregated seating, a friend beside me also seemed to hate the seats due to the lack of interaction with the stage. No shit, I prefer to be in general admission. You can see fuck all. Fuck all the fucking people who insist on having us back. My advice; just buy general admission. Venues can be talked into letting you on the floor from experience. You may have to settle for the side but it's still better than segregated seating.

Two Saturdays ago I went to my sister's wedding. I forgot that I was a crippled vampire that doesn't function in sunlight; eye tracking wasn't going to work outside and barely worked indoors. If I wasn't DJing the wedding I'm sure anti social and workahollic me would have spent the entire time blogging; I quite liked DJing. Would have liked it better if my eye tracker wasn't a piece of shit. Next year I hope to finish my own DJ software. Not for any professional goals. I tend to build stuff just for something to do. Some stuff I build as spare time projects I'll eventually turn into products though. I could probably combine my DJ software with my DJ automation system; best of both worlds.

Nothing else to say, so, bye!

Concerts, Project ADHD, Mad Computer Scientist

 
Sunday I went to Auckland for a concert. Enjoyed Kelis and Ne-Yo. Saw a bit of Sean Paul, had to leave early because I had something else to do. There was only one really crap act who seemed to be getting off on telling the crowd what to do. I generally don't like acts doing this. "Put your hands up in the air" If I wanted to pay for someone to tell me what to do I'd hire a BDSM hooker. Yes I get it's concert culture blah blah blah, clearly not my thing. If I am paying you should be my puppet.

Monday I went home, short but good trip.

I think my project ADHD has hit crisis point. I want to do too many things. Just this week I resumed eye tracking development and researched how to build a SMS application. I have been talking about launching a music site for about a year, never get around to it. It's also tempting to presue similar faces technology and super resolution technology for video. Before that I am developing laughter analysis software to score jokes. I have a whole other line of entertainment software that I want to launch, same with ecommerce and building navigation software. I MAY have figured out the problem with my pitch shifting code so I can do singing synthesis/auto tune text to speech voices. I need people to sell! I occasionally inquire but it leads to nowhere. I'll try again in a few weeks.

I also want to do screenplays and music production, I'll try and spend a few hours a week after a wedding I'm DJing, need to spend my arts time on that, before that it was Brisbane. The reason I'm developing a SMS application is so I can use phones overseas.

There's a bunch of stuff I haven't mentioned. Perhaps I do too much. If I could monetize the building navigation and ecommerce products that would be a start. Some projects are small so although it feels like a crisis and overwhelming it may get better after a month or two.

I decided that I like the term Mad Computer Scientist. People are free to call me that. This is a play on the term Mad Scientists, a common thing in pop culture. If you're sensitive to mental health issues, I am also quick to anger so it works for that too.

Brisbane 2017

 

Tuesday I performed my final test before Brisbane. Had to delete some stuff, otherwise it went OK.

It has been suggested that I do more crowd funding to travel. I am not really comfortable taking people's money but I am not going to rule this out entirely. I want to proceed with screen productions and music, but traveling with comedy is also appealing. Some people have said that I should tighten my script. I think that I am already hillarious but also think that trying to optimize is a good idea if traveling internationally. I will try to do more experimenting at paying gigs. Some artists frown on this but also frown on not tightening. I will do things my way. As long as I stay hillarious to the audience that is really all that matters. Should I want to travel internationally I will try and pick up more local gigs.

Productions are the first priority. For years and years I have fantesized about hot guys, but also doing productions like sitcoms and legal shows. It's time for me to presue my dreams. Funding is an issue but I can start small, take things from there.

Thursday I went to Brisbane. I can do lots of blogging here. Fuck it's hot on the plane. Slept for two hours last night. Fucking insomia. My fault for working late.

Friday and Saturday I performed and also experienced some shows during those days. It went well. First time was the larger crowd. A man said he liked my comedy because it tells a story of what his mother must go through. Had some straight Vodkas, only about three. More international trips are appealing, funding is a problem. This one was fully funded. Thanks Access Arts Queensland!

Would it be narsissistic of me to view my comedy as a public service? I am narsissistic, so that's OK.

Sunday I went home. Didn't do about as much blogging as I would have like but as Tony Abbot says shit happens! Shit happened with my phone, couldn't get a SIM card, that was an utter bastard, must buy a new phone before my next trip overseas. Basically my phone is a dinosaur and some countries don't support 2G but the accessibility software for it closed down and I am not sure if the accessibility software will work because its serial number is tied to the model. Fuck that, that is a stupid fucking system. Fuck software developers that discontinue their software too. Maybe I can make my own software or find something else. Not being able to text locals is truly disabling. Otherwise good festival. Trying a margarita on flight home taste appears to linger. Good temporary effect.

Comedy, projects, politics

 
Performed 6 new minutes Wednesday, mostly went well, one dud line. I don't know if getting impatient for the crowd to stop laughing is a good sign or not? Have one more testing set, then hopefully two professional gigs. I may have something else that is going to require me to invent remote text to speech software so I can live speak at a remote location; I am looking forward to the project!

I was going to blog about the election but ended up doing it on my news blog last week. Some plans depend on which way it goes, ultimately I prefer left but I have plans to enact (a website to launch) if it goes right. Left would mean I can focus of other things instead of launching a site to do what the government refuses to do. Although the site would be easy but ultimately I have a zillion other projects and not having to do it would be easier.

This blog is a bit short. Oh hurry the fuck up Winston. For people that complain he has all the power you should have done more to increase your side instead of bitching after the fact. This system is shitty but is at least better than parties winning with only 33% of the vote. All eyes on Winston, he probably likes it this way. Stupid pundits should stop mentioning a blue green government is a possibility, you're in an utter fucking fantasy world! Their base would leave the greens and the party would die. How many MPs did the maori party and United Future get? Oh that's right 0! Act 1! All parties had multiple MPs at one stage. Greens would die quicker because their core base is anti national. Greens are not just an environmental party but a their base largely prefers socialism too. Did your TV job come with cocaine?

Comedy and blogging

 
Tuesday I performed stand up comedy, I was fantastic, as always. Well most of the time anyway. Enjoyed it, I always do but I have to have an objective to do gigs. Need to test new content for Brisbane. I may have some other stuff lined up beyond that. However I'm developing a line up of arts related software and that will remain my primarily focus when it comes to the arts, and learning music production. I also want to professionally write comedy, can never get success finding jobs. Maybe I will email more producers or whatever after Brisbane. I am considering crowd funding productions, again after Brisbane. Maybe I should do animations first to build a base. I don't know. I get ideas, and don't have the manpower to capitalize on them. Some I start and forget, some never make it out of the development phase. Some active projects I don't devote enough time to; I just have to automate more of my work. Hey at least I'm not a president too stupid to do anything productive with the power. I feel much better!

I have a Patreon page that basically hasn't been used for years since its inception. I am wondering if the Pateron model would work for a disability oriented production company, could be worth doing. I know that I want to start the organization after Brisbane, undecided on what form. Regarding monetizing my personal blog posts, would be a dream come true, but I am not sure how popular I am. I am lucky if I get two likes per post LOL. I would like to spend more time blogging, but there's probably more creative avenues that would be better use of my time. I am finding it hard to restrict myself to one Brain Blog a month; I could do two however maybe monthly ensures I don't run out of content. I have a post on weight and psychology next month. I wanted to do technology blogs, but I just keep posting about psychology. A problem I have is between blogging and spare time projects I have almost no time for anything else, like researching new porn. I would love it if I could do some blogging in work time; alternatively porn. No not as a performer, I would definitely write scenes though. Would need to research what people like. There's a joke by Jimmy Dore "I'm a wanker, I don't want to do a medical examination" Do people really like the extreme close ups? Let me know? Also let me know how I can be paid for blogging; thinking of connecting my main disability blog to Patreon, that might be a start. Will probably connect a comedy division to my disability production company and talent agency. Sounds like a plan.

Ariana Grande 2017

 
Tried another stand up wheelchair. No idea if I am going to get funding for it. The salesman has everything he needs to provide a quote. Hopefully I get it.

Never staying here again, practically a dump with shit access, both outside and the room. Slightly more privacy. YouTube doesn't work, facebook video does. Fuck that.

It's Friday as I am typing. Off to Auckland. Having Burger King at airport, just because I can, I like soft meat, easier to eat.

Sunday, back home. went to Ariana Grande Saturday. Music was pretty good, stage show was great at time. She pretty much just sang, which I know duh she's a singer but some singers also provide entertaining dialogue. I'd give the show a B. Does this count as a website review? Can I write off the trip as business? Probably not. I really need to start my music site so I can do that. I keep getting sidetracked with other projects. Latest is a DJ automation system. It's my first dual web and Windows project!

Now to do programming for three hours.

Music, comedy, 32

 
I don't feel like blogging; I have no idea how much I slept if at all. Let's say it was a rare time I got intoxicated. Although I did some work at the same time, for a DJ gig. Gives me experience in the field. I should note last night was totally sanctioned by my client, I don't have some horrible work ethic.

Fans of my comedy should note that I am probably going to resume stand up comedy in several weeks; got a probable overseas gig and need to test some new material.

I am now 32. I really should start to make changes to my life; though need an significant income stream first. Eh perhaps I'll continue to build up stuff and do that next year. I don't want to be a birthday grinch, but I am not enthused. Every year I want to do something big, but my business always seems to be not as successful as I would like to warrant it, possibly next year. I need to travel more. At least I have one probable overseas trip, one per year is the bare minimum that I want. Recently I that overseas accessibility is not good. So maybe I can do something with that. I already have two tourism related ventures, perhaps combine those with a few other things and who knows?
