I FINALLY got a job interview. It's tomorrow at a restaurant called Kally's that's new. Prediction: very shitty. I'd be the bartender there and it doesn't strike me like the kind of place where people order alcohol. Family Restaurants... . In more hilarious news, Yuk Yuks had an add today for servers, so I applied there, that would be the best place probably cuz I could work a day job then work there cuz it's only at nights. And I'd be at the center of the comedy universe: Mississauga Yuk Yuk's. It totally is. Check a map. They probably only hire girls though, like fucking everywhere else. Stupid bitches are better than this guy?? rim an ass. Still waiting to hear about Bell, courtesy of DK, and initech, courtesy of Andy.
If anyone wants to go see Players next thursday, I have a car and am going.
Current Mood: meh

|Sickening P. Rankles
that is my new favourite junk email name
It has now gotten to the point where I will pleasure you for 10 dollars an hour. Girls or Guys, your pets if they need it. Rimmers thrown in for free.
I slept at Julia's place last night and had to get the car home for 9ish, so here I am, awake this early with nothing to do today. My pathetic lifestyle is way easier to handle when I wake up at 2. Less hours in the day to think about it. I have very real plans to take a shower in the next little bit, but then after that I'm devoid of ideas.
Hey Andy, check and see if those people plan on calling my unemployable ass. I f'ing need this like Brent Duffin needs to have sex with a fat girl four times in a row. bad. ba-zing.
The publicist read the first episode of flint and thinks it's hilarious. Good news. Speaking of "good news" I saw Adam Miller this morning at tim hortons. He was wearing a canadian idol t-shirt and was talking about how he hates his job. Good guy that Miller.
I did the "newspaper from tomorrow" joke for julia last night. She thought it was funny, but it doesn't work that well with only one person. It'd be funny, much like burke steals our jokes and uses them down there and his friends think he's funny, if that was like a very standard joke in nyc that he steals and uses on us to make us think he's funny. Burke doesn't create jokes, he just parlay's them across the continent.
Tonight we are going to sneaky tune-downs. All are welcome.
I dl'd a movie yesterday but it came in ".vob" files, what the fuck? anyone know what I do with this? Current Mood: blah

|you gotta want it
just talked to burke, he's gonna pretty much be a no go for gerry's cottage, summerworks and san fran. he got the lead in a festival in the catskills or something and is gonna be gone for 7 months. so numbers will have to drop further.

|am I retarded or am I just unemployed
very very bored these days, very very unemployed these days, very very bored these days.
Can't get a call back from a restaurent to save my life. Damn my small boobs.
I'm still not unpacked totally, but the more I do, the more I feel that I'm entrenching myself here Missy-Rut!
So I also can't do any fun things really cuz my parents would be like "why are you doing that when you haven't found a job yet", which leads to the boredom.
I had a dream the other night that this old man was standing on his head on a bed and had a baby voice and kept counting down from 10. It was actually quite terrifying. Current Mood: shit

|I'm doing this
this is what I'm thinking. after san fran we rent a car and drive down the california coast and party. we'll make stops and stay at hostiles and make our way down to LA. Rock some beaches, drink some beers, open roads and jokes about all 3. who's with me?
|Thursday, May 5th, 2005|
I'm at andy's place in toronto. little does he know but I just farted in his chair. I wonder if he'll smell it. he's sitting on his bed with "girl". hahahahahahahahahah.

I've decided to write a play, I have ideas and characters, but I'm not gonna say much about it now.
Players is over now but I'm not sad anymore, I feel very satisfied that I saw that show out from initial conception. I'm happy that every joke I wanted to do, every scene I wanted to do, all the characters and plot points I wanted in got laughs. Shit like the law and order video prologue, princess diana, lfo freestyle battle, creep my ride, "the flux capacitor" being a sex move, and inner ass shavings. The hard part about leaving this is thinking about the fact that I have this venue to do basically whatever I want and knowing for a fact that 1800 people are gonna see it. Not only see it but line up early in the morning before tickets go on sale to see it. It's funny to think that you've gotten to this level, and now it's like "ok, time to start from scratch and get back here".
A new star wars movie is upon us soon, and a new weezer album. Remember when both of these things were the greatest, and now you hold your breath with every new arrival only to be dissapointed. Hopefully they'll both return to glory, but yet again, I'm holding my breath.

|go on brush your dick off, you've officially been creeped
I got to cancun tomorrow and this time there's no chance of me getting dumped on the first day there. So this will be a much better trip.
Players has been going well, not enough rehearsal but it's still good. I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about it right now. I'm somewhat nervous just because my name is heavily attached to this and since I consider myself a "comedy guy" it has to be amazing. I've realized this is the one thing in my life I'm a perfectionist at. When I get involved on the production side of things I constantly obsess about making it better in any way. While we were writing the script i can't tell you how many times I went over it changing words and little things to try to make it funnier. I ignored many a lecture that way.
I'm running behind
as per usual

people get really bent out of shape over valentines day. I'm not talking about the ones who are like "oh I don't have a date and no one loves me and I'm ugly", they're a different story. I'm talking about the people who say "it's a holiday invented by the greeting card companies, it doesn't mean anything, I don't need a specific day to let someone know I love them, blah blah blah". I'm pretty indifferent to val day. I'm not dating anyone, and a lot happier for it, hence I have no cause to celebrate vd, but I also don't get down on those who treat it as a big deal and want to celebrate it to the fullest. live and let live man. some people in relationships like to have a day where they do things that are a little out of the ordinary and special. fuckin eh man, go for it.
the other night I had a dream that I bought two bags of marshmellows, I put them in a cupboard. lamest. dream. ever.
double scotches on the rocks are A.O.K.

so I'm out here in vancouver right now.
I saw my Grandfather last night for like the first time in over 10 years probably. We don't get out here much and he's been too old to make the trip back. He's 75 and in a wheel chair now. He's had many heart attacks and such. He was still breaking out the jokes last night and making everyone in the room laugh. It was very moving to me and has made this whole trip worth it.
Tonight is New Years and I wish I was going to JS's, but I'm gonna have to rock the party out here. Probably go out with my cousin Katie. I've already started drinking so I predict being very drunk infront of her friends.
It's warmer out here and there's a big ball hockey game tomorrow. I'm hoping that it's gonna be a "low effort only" game, but I doubt it. Much digging in the corners probably.
Out here you can buy Colt 45 in regular cans. sssso ssssick. They also have 15 packs and a lot of other strange beer.
On Monday night I'm gonna go see one of my cousins improv show. I wonder what west coast jokes will be like.
People are laughing upstairs. late-ro.

well, this has been a solid week for old didds. The show opened to fantastic reviews and everyone who has come to see it has really enjoyed it, which is awesome. We just finished the 5th of 6 shows and I'm a little worse for wear as a result including the following ailments: tweaked neck, scraped and tweaked back, soar throat, bruised knees, can only hear out of one ear, sore ankles, and constant chills. But it's been worth it. Yesterday after the show a drama prof came up to me and said "do you have anything lined up for next sememster?" to which I replied "ummm, not really", then he said "I'm doing 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' in january, are you interested in doing it?", I tried to sound non-chalant afterwards but I'm sure I just said "yes, sure, yes, absolutely". So he's gonna email me about it. So that was awesome. I also got another email from a girl who wants me to do a show with her in March. That one probably won't work out cuz I'd like to return to Players for my University send-off. So much like players was the best thing to do last year, Metamophoses has been the best thing to do this year. Charles said it was the best show he's seen at Queen's, and his gf is an actress so he's seen some shows. My school situation is bad due to all the attention I've been focusing on this show, but hey, you don't win friends with essays. So whatever man.

I'm the son of rage and love
the jesus of suburbia
in the bible of
none of the above
sometimes life can be beautiful.
and nothing extraordinary happend to me today.
I feel bad for people who have it all figured out,
how boring would that be?
you have no idea how comforted I am by the prospect of the mustard sandwhich plan
this song may just change your life

and just like that, everything turned around.
I had that audition on friday and got the part. They asked me "would you be comfortable being on stage naked in this show?" to which I replied "I don't look good naked, so the real question is would YOU be comfortable with me naked on stage in this play". They didn't laugh. F that. I'm fucking funny.
So yeah man. The play is called Metamorphosis and goes up in November and has a pool in the center of the stages or something. This is gonna be good. Even if the play is shit I'm gonna learn a lot. Get out of the old comfort zone of players and into something I could also be good at.
I met a really really fucking cool girl this past week and hung out with her on saturday. We'll see what happens but this girl is pretty fucking awesome. But at the same time I'm like, "well, whatever. if it works out cool... if not, no spice. the show must go on". I'm getting older and wiser.
It's amazing how like two small good things happening can turn around 5 months of shittiness. There's hope for us all.
After my shift I stayed and had a few pints with the guys who work at shoeless. They seemed very interested in my acting and my views on comedy and "the funny" in general. Real good dudes.
wow, last week I was banging my head against the wall saying (to quote the new green day album's queen-esque moment in Homecoming) "somebody get me out of here... anybody get me out of here... somebody get me out of here... get me the fuck right out of here". But fuck man, you're the most dangerous when you have nothing left to lose. Watch out, Didds is back, angry, and ready to rock your face with awesomeness.
I really want to see I Heart Huckabees. Holy nuts. Yeah Schwartzman.
There's hope for us all.

|wrong. WRONG. We're talking about rick james man.
"therefore, let's smile. let's slap a silly grin on our face that says to the rest of the world "Yes, I see what's going on, but I'm pretending not to notice".
That made me laugh. it's from this Mamet monologue that I doing for an audition in 2 1/2 hours. I didn't think I would be doing the audition thing again this year, but I'm sure it's for the best. I'll get better this way. Players is safe and I know I can do it, so branching out into something foreign will be good in the long run.
