What a lovely semester it has been! This term I took dance, acting and writing and participated once again in the SFU Improv Club.
Through improv I have learned many relevant life lessons, such as “being a yes”, accepting offers, supporting others, going with the flow, having fun, listening, being present and more. It was a really fun time this year as I actively maintained our twitter and facebook, posting QUOTE OF THE WEEK to highlight the best one-liners from our practices.
We hosted three bi-weekly shows at the Highland Pub called Funny Monday’s, where we featured improv and stand up comedy (which I am hoping to try this summer). One of them was 2.0 themed, a dream I have had for a long time.
I also got the chance to perform as part of the festival ensemble at the UBC Impulse Festival where I got to meet some awesome people (including the brother of a guy from a TV show!) and see some innovative improv (including two amazing formats: the EPIC [suggestion: mundane task = half hour adventure] and hostage [three improvisors were taken hostage and given a case of beer, for inspiration the improvisors would yell HOSTAGE and a live Skype feed of the increasingly drunken hostages would play for a while, inspiring the cast to improvise more]).
I am really lucky to have such a funny, awesome group of friends.
I wrote this a long time ago and just found it recently. It was inspired by a series of similar conversations with a series of unique friends of mine. Now I am thinking I should write a follow-up called “Spooning”…
So i’m sure by now you have seen Rebecca Black’s video for the song Friday. It is not the best song on the planet, but it has brought laughter to millions of people. WIN. What bothers me about this isn’t the laughter, but the hateful comments. Imagine if that awkward video you made at the beginning of high school was publicly broadcast all over the internet and millions of people watched it. I had some good ones in my day ahah. Overall though, I’m sure we’ve all had an experience with hate towards us. In high school someone left some cruel messages on my answering machine one day and i’ll be honest. It didn’t feel good. I’ve moved past that incident and forgiven those people, but I can’t imagine experiencing that on the scale that Rebecca Black has to deal with. She gets my major admiration. Plus, if she hadn’t made this song, then this awesome band Tucker wouldn’t have made their awesome acoustic cover! LOVE IT!
In all seriousness though, let’s all show some compassion. I think we should all grow up… so Rebecca has the chance to.
