Why So Serious?

Posted by on August 18, 2008

Calm down there shant be another review of the Dark Knight, just my own ponderings while I read my blog this morning. I had such a fantastic weekend and spent a couple instances on Saturday laughing to the point of abdominal pain and many tears.

My goal for this morning was to figure out why I haven’t been posting more often on Perfectly Turbulent, and I believe I have finally cracked the code. I’m getting too serious with this whole blogging thing. The reason I first started blogging was to give myself an outlet that would allow me to write more often. It wasn’t for money, or to kick start a business it was to start typing and if readers followed…sweeeeeeet.

But between last year and now I’ve started taking things a little too seriously, trying to make every post a deep dive into a subject and  meaning and I’ve totally lost focus for why I began blogging in the first place. I found it quite hilarious that I spend my offline time cracking jokes and laughing at the most absurd things and then spend my online life being uber-serious. Well enough is enough.

There is a time and a place for my serious-face (rhyming makes things more important) but it’s infinitely more important to learn and remember how to laugh at all times. Life is too serious…to take it so seriously all the time. And the last thing I’m looking to turn into is one of those bloggers that tries to evoke a life-changing conversation from each and every post.

I think sometimes the best thing you can offer people is not the power to think more deductively about something, but giving them something that lets them stop thinking for a moment.

On that note, myself and a buddy were extras in a short sketch comedy film Saturday afternoon entitled “The Running of the Bullshitters”. Hilarious concept and I can’t wait to see the finished product. Essentially, take the running of the bulls scene in Pamplona, Spain every year and substitute the bulls with people yelling insane lies and bullshit “I slept with 3 girls in one night”, “I think your mother is great”, “No, really I love my job” all the while chasing the Spaniards through the streets.

The sketch group behind the comedy are called The Imponderables

And here is a taste of what these guys are capable of.

Enjoy, The Waldo Ultimatum.
