Not Being Perfect (It’s Ok, Right?)
January 24, 2016
I want to say, “YEAH! SILLY TITLE FOR A POST!” But it’s completely right on. Episode 10 went up yesterday, and I’m beginning to ask myself–WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING KK? I thought I had a plan for what this channel would be, and I thought the plan was just to record what I’ve been doing on a daily basis — but this seems to be getting a little boring–to me, and maybe for others too.
Think I’ve got a lot on my plate. I’m rehearsing tomorrow for a sketch I wrote –we’re going to film it in two weeks. I booked the room, got the actors (all wonderful comics who are really awesome and supportive and talented), and brought a wonderful photographer in to shoot it–we’ve got three cameras total–what?!
So all of that is good, and I’m starting a new class on Monday. So everything is going in a positive direction. Maybe I’m just feeling impatient.
When I published that YouTube clip–submitting it to a host of websites–and only 46 hits (which I’m completely obsessing over). However, you had zero hits two months ago, and 8 subscribers. Today you have 50. Even the cute Russian boy from Nice subscribed yesterday.
I know the answer is just to keep filming everything, to see patterns that develop, and to post what seems fun. Last week I asked the teacher of my class if I could interview him and also if I could use pieces of the work I do in class. He said he would normally do that, but would like me to get permission from the organization that hosts the classes.
I got stunned, fearful and stopped taking action at that point. All I have to do is write to the people who run the classes. No biggie, right? Except I can’t seem to get it together to do that. Argh. I didn’t even write back to the teacher. Argh. Take a breath. You can do it kk. It’s not that big of a deal. If anything, you can record yourself before the class, after the class, show some footage of the way you did your jokes at mics before and mics after –Hallelujah!!!!!!1
GREAT IDEA–NEXT EPISODE!!!!! OH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!
