Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

upstairsgallery:

We’ve decided to stop the gallery in it’s current incarnation. Meaning we’re not going to operate the space at 5219 N Clark after the end of the summer. August 31st, the weekend after Jangleheart Circus, will be our last one there.

Peoples reactions have been incredible and weird and flattering…

Sad news… UG was the first place I ever performed in Chicago. Thanks to all the great stewards of the indie scene, can’t wait for Jangleheart!!

Another late night talk show host is leaving CBS.

Craig Ferguson of the Late Late Show is expected to sign off at the end of the year.

This news comes just after the network announced Stephen Colbert will replace the retiring David Letterman.

The announcement raised questions again about why all the late night comics on the big networks are white males.

Part of the answer takes us to Chicago, where many of the comedy stars of the last few decades learned their trade – including Stephen Colbert who studied improv at The Second City.

Staying Present

Been a while since I last posted. I was at a Harold rehearsal tonight and got a note that rang true super hard:

"Don’t worry about what’s next, worry about what just happened"

It’s an exercise of being present that I still forget about on stage because I’m trying to be the funniest, smartest, cutest player in the show. Everything you need is right in front of you in the eyes of your scene partner.

My iO Harold team is performing next Wednesday and I am so excited to dare to not be funny, interesting, satirical or least of all, cute. Since I moved here, I’ve been working on characters and taking in a POV that’s not mine, and while I’ve worked that muscle out a ton, it’s time I circled back to what I was always great at and what brings me the most success: Just Being Me. We don’t have to pretend if we’re wearing a character as a thing veil. No one else can be me, by design, so I will stop short changing the audience with characters that don’t feel real or true due to their exaggeration. I’m enough and people will pay to watch me be me, over and over again.
