Just put your lips together and blow...

I had a moment last night, where I realized how ecstatic I was that I gave up acting.

As I’m watching an entire troup of actors run around a stage, their arms outstretched as though they’re airplanes; their lips pursed together forcing obscene amounts of spittle to escape their lips as they imitate the sound of a jet propeller. Somehow, this is supposed to help them tap into their “character.” It’s supposed to help them in their “process.” To help them find an unltimate “truth.” I found myself stifling laughter as I remembered that these people and their parents were spending how many thousands of dollars a year in tuition so that they could do exercises that I used to do when I was four watching Romper-Room. I sat in the back of the theatre with the tech crew and laughed my ass off!
