Serendipity Dental

I was at a lose as to what to do. Historically, I’ve had trouble giving things up. Lent was spent mocking my more pious friends. I still have letter and notes from every single one of my CouchSurfers. I… am playing World of Warcraft again. I briefly entertained the thought of giving up alcohol. Of …

A Month Of… Transit: Stop Somewhere New

Next Month’s show will be A Month Of Transit: Stop Someplace New Facebook link One of the things I like about this task is how it’s worded. Rather than, “Go Someplace New” it’s “Stop Someplace New.” It reminds me that every time I commute there are little hidden gems, quaint adventures, interesting and unexpected people …

A Month Of… Closed

Nov 11th @ Stage 773

Closed
Remove _____ from your life.

Closed is a strange theme and I wonder where the night will take us. Perhaps to stories about closing down shop, or stories about being being closed out of a group, stories about getting to a place just a hair too late, or maybe even in the nick of time! I’m not sure where this foray into storytelling back and forth will lead, but I’m looking forward to seeing where it does.

For the group task, Remove _____ from your life, some of us decided to go blind for a short time. Come to the show to find out what sort of perspective changes that lead to.

Next Up! A Month of… Criminal Acts!

Storytelling Duo and Bonnie

The other night’s show was awesome. Thanks to everyone who came out, brought food, shared stories, and maybe even got a little freaked out by our exuberance. The stories moved around, featured dreamy trespassing, father’s who don’t want to pay for parking, ghosts in our nightmares, and more. Next month will be A Month Of… …

The Architect’s Dream House

A dreamscape is born when you empty a place of people. Just east of the Beverly Shores Camping ground, a treeline dangling its fall leaves beckoned me and a few friends out of of the water during a camping trip made one year ago to the Indiana Dunes. “This looks exactly like a Hans Christian Anderson fairtyale book,” …

A Month of Boundaries: Red Line Book Club

Hillel gifted us with this idea of creating a space within a space after he started busting out moves at a club. The audience told him, “You’re a really good dancer!” But rather than rock out to the dance club grooves he didn’t care for, he had popped in his earbuds. The club was just …

A Month of Preview: Genius Gambler

This month’s theme is “Genius: Be an Inventor.” Unfortunately for me, no genius source of inspiration came readily, until I stopped wracking my brain for ways to make something original and new. I’m going to try to borrow from one of the oldest tropes associated with “The Genius” – as someone who games the system, …

Gaslighting with Bonnie Fan
