I’m Not Acting

This is a monologue I wrote on March 14, 2013.

I’m Not Acting

You think I’m acting? I’m right here, now, having a real fucking moment. All right? This is me. This is me shining through. I’m not performing. What? No, I’m not hiding. I’m not playing some character. Jesus. There is no character! There’s only me.  There’s only you.  Right now, totally exposed. Raw. Uncut. Untouched.  Un.. plugged.  That’s the reality. That’s what you’re seeing right now.

Ok, I’m sorry.  I’m not angry. I’m not.  I know we just met.  You hit a nerve, that’s all. I just need to be understood, ok?  You need to be understood, right? And this is me. This is here. This is now.  Ya know?  I’m not nuts.  I just need to be unchained, unleashed from these fucking words, that’s all.  These words are choking me like a leather noose.  What? Yes, they’re MY words.  But it’s not about the words!  It’s about me being me, and you seeing me.  Huh? No, I’m trying to have a dialogue here with you. I don’t wanna spew some sloppy monologue! I want to know you.  Now don’t, ya know, get put off cuz you think I’m angry or bitter.  This is passion! There’s a difference.

It’s not intensity either. Intensity is just constantly doing shit ‘cuz you can never be still.  It’s not anger, it’s not intensity. It’s passion. It’s pretty simple, actually.

All right, so, can we, ya know… Can we go on a date now, ok?  Just, I don’t know. Let’s just start with a dinner.  And we talk, right?  Ok, thanks.

How Are Great Ideas Born?

I’m always looking to be inspired by something. If I can be inspired by one thing each day, I’m living happy. This is pretty rad:

With Where Good Ideas Come From, Steven Johnson pairs the insight of his bestselling Everything Bad Is Good for You and the dazzling erudition of The Ghost Map and The Invention of Air to address an urgent and universal question: What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen? Answering in his infectious, culturally omnivorous style, using his fluency in fields from neurobiology to popular culture, Johnson provides the complete, exciting, and encouraging story of how we generate the ideas that push our careers, our lives, our society, and our culture forward.
