Justin and I do a silly bit at the end of this wonderful episode of This American Wife!
I haven’t used tumblr in a long time, and I could start by promising I’m going to use it more, but a) that’s probably not true and b) who cares how often I use any kind of social media.
Anyway, I have been using Vine a whole heck of a lot… to post unrelenting and unfiltered videos of my cat. I take dozens of them, sometimes in a single day. I don’t care if they’re good. I don’t care if people follow me. It’s seriously super indulgent. All that said, I thought you might enjoy the following videos of my cat, Batman, experiencing bubbles for the first time:
And here he is about six minutes later…
Well, there you go. I’m tumblring.
So, I would assume that a good chunk of people that follow me are aware that UCBLA is having auditions for harold teams starting this evening. I’ve been involved in the last 4 or 5 rounds of auditions, so I thought I might chime in and give some advice on the process, the actual auditions and the…
Great advice from Fernie about Harold auditions today. One thing I’ll add is: this isn’t an end game. You’re not in or out of the system because you do or don’t make it onto a team. Every year about 16 incredibly talented people are put onto teams, but at least that many talented people aren’t put on teams. It’s a numbers game. Auditioning for a harold team and getting onto one are just two possible steps of many to becoming a better improviser, and ultimately if you’re in this for any reason other than to get better and have fun with other people who are striving to get better, I believe you’re in it for the wrong reasons.
So be confident, have fun, and remember this Grantland Rice quote:
“For when the One Great Scorer comes
To mark against your name,
He writes - not that you won or lost
-But how you played the Game.”
