You are a very funny man witha very nice home and a very nice girlfriend and you do very nice work that makes people laugh and smile.
and you are a very silly cat.
Speaking of, where has DeeVee been hiding? I haven't seen her around.
I really like the idea of comedy forcing someone to laugh. reminds me of the Care Bear Stare.
you are one of the kindest, most welcoming people i know.
coldtowne thinks highly of you
every single living improviser goes through humps, goes through long periods of hating themselves and everything they say on stage. i've dealt with overwhelming feelings of panic onstage, terrified of being boring. but you work through them.
it's natural for any artist- be patient with yourself and know that you're in good company
I definitely know I'm in good company. 3, 2, 1 Kill! was and will be a blast.
You have a job. Because you have a job, you do not live with your parents or are forced to leave your friends behind when the rent gets too high. Because you do not live with your parents and are not as ugly, as, say, me, you're also able to get a girlfriend. Which you have.
Now if you will excuse me, I'm going to wash down some sleeping pills with vodka and play superheroes. I'm pretending to be trash-bag gimp mask man. When Trash-bag gimp mask man uses his secret power, all the problems of the world are solved. Also, he turns blue.
Bottom line is, you're a good guy.
Not enough, how's this:
Having stared at it from the inside so long as to have lost clear and honest perception, I had to get an outsider's opinion. So, I grabbed two co-workers on lunch break and made them come watch ToaH. They loved it.
In fact, at one point, they started laughing so loud that two office doors closed because of the noise.
Wait until they see the outtakes.
You kick ass so soundly and roundly, you make the rest of us work that much harder just to try to keep up. Bastard! I mean, yay! Wheee!
I should work on the roundly bit. I'd be happy to kick ass soundly and sveltly. :)
no need to be. Anyone who can make chicken goo like you need be jealous of no one.
You are the best idea man I know.
That means a lot. Thanks.
Tuscaloosa is at a loss without you! Damn that Austin, always being cooler than us and stuff!
I miss Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter, though. Even when I did it Austin, it was never the same. The T-Town listeners were way better.
We have THESE!

Re: I got it!
yo Roy, I know we haven't hung out a lot in the past couple years, but I am really glad I'm seeing you again sometimes, even if it's just by coming to your improv shows. You're one of my favorite people because you are incredibly fun, never unafraid to do something because it might be "too silly" or "too much work," and when things are daunting you still just do them anyway. Plus so much (all??) of your humor springs from this well of joy and enthusiasm about the world instead of cynicism and judging others. And I love that even though you are so thin-skinned you will just throw yourself into things and open yourself up to all kinds of criticism just to do what you really want to. It's inspiring.
Ahhh, so nice. Thanks so much, Nicole.
