Delivery yes, but...

from what I understand, stand-up is an art form, and the starting point to being good at it is to die on stage a bunch of times. That's how you find out what works and what doesn't. Then, you refine each of those nuggets you've dug out and melt them in a BIG FUCKING POT.

Find out what hits them in the gut, where they're weak, and then exploit that shit for  :lulz:

Exactly... like writing, music, art, science, and pretty much everything else worth doing, first you have to suck at it a whole lot in order to get any better. You just keep sucking, and sucking, and sucking until this one time you suck a little less, and then eventually you get to a point where you hardly suck at all.

If you aren't willing to suck at it as hard as you can, you'll never give yourself a chance to get good.

:popcorn:

Literally any act, especially on the internet, that is against doing or saying horrible things counts as "capitulating to the SJWs." You must declare your allegiance to the values of Free Speech by being deliberately neo-Nazi.

You're fucked...

Yeah, I suspected that Adjunct Tavore would not be easy to manipulate like that. If Lorn was anything to judge by, Adjuncts are not selected for their sentimentality or hot blooded nature.

Also, thoughts on first 25 pages of Memories of Ice:

I think the T'Lan Imass are one of the coolest things in the setting, but man... They are dicks.

Finished Deadhouse Gates about a week ago. Really enjoying how the story is ramping up.

I gotta say though, the arrival of the Traders Guild near the end to bring relief to Coltaine and Fiddler's group felt like genre whiplash. :lulz: 300 pages of characters being ground into the dust with almost no relief, and then WHAM. I guess that was intentional, though.

And I remain dead to this day.  :lulz: I'm not as good as Payne at the whole "rising from the dead" bit.

A PROPER dead person would be up here in Tucson, you know.  Or pedaling a bike in Portland.

Feet stuck in the permafrost layer underneath the Yankee Swamp. It's considered a very honorable burial here in the Ice Age.

I gotta go to Phoenix again.  :crankey:

That's just cruel. Something must be amiss, and the gods are clearly displeased with us. I know this to be true because one of my toenails just came off.

We must prepare more sacrifices. This cargo cult of ours has been slacking off.

I spent all the time I could playing with the paint program (Macpaint) and playing what games I could find. I remember Dark Castle particularly well. My brothers were also fascinated, especially by the games, but had been deemed too young to touch it by Mom Inc. This did not exactly stop them.

Macpaint and Dark Castle were the bomb-diggity. Sometimes the color would stop working on the Mac I had but the programs still worked.

 :lulz: I like this new (?) mythos.

You mean you're not interested in charging majick sigils?  :lulz:

Wake up at 4:30 am. Consume magical fizzy elixir of life* and hike across the Siberian Tundra that lies between my front door and my car.

Arrive early at job site in Manhattan after 1.5 hour drive. It is 3 F, or -16C, and it's an outdoor site. No one around. Sit in car to kill time, eventually someone lets me in. Luckily, there's a heated trailer office to wait in.

2 hours later, word finally comes through that the trucks needed to work today are fucking frozen like goddamn woolly mammoths. Get sent home, consoled by fact that I'm getting paid anyway, plus pay for the holiday. Parking ticket negates monetary gains of working on holiday.

You bet your ass I'm leaving early every day this week. The Law of SLACKTM requires that, for every action, there is an equal and opposite FUCK YOU.
