Act 1 of many
I would like to write about some of the things i notice as i walk down the street.The things that roil me up with anger when i get on the bus etc etc. All the things that peeve me. Life is just full of anomalies. I feel that one of the easiest ways to do this is to write. To be more specific, I love writing plays. It is extremely facile for me to write in dialogue form because I have grasped the essence of conversation. Conversation is just response to response to response, its being in sync with whoever you are being colloquial with. It is sort of ironic because I am not a big orator, I am more of a recluse but I can still create plays in a way that makes it seem as though I have a motormouth.
I can definitely say that conversation is one of the most basic forms of human interaction. It is so easy for me to just go on and on in terms of what people are saying. That is what makes it so easy for me to write plays,because life is just one big conversation if you think about. We are always talking to someone. I could write a play right now based on the ideals that my english teacher has to take on because of a couple of students. He tells them to be quiet or something related to that and they give a rebellious response. I pay close attention to things like this, also i pick up on facial expressions and indications. I have been on this earth for 17 years and i have watched humans go through all of their emotions and so I have those kinds of memories which help me write what i write. I recently wrote a play relating to highschool about 4 kids who are each dealing with a highschool issue. Again, all of it are things that i have seen or noticed, Ive been in highschool for 3 years now and ive heard stories etc. It is almost like a firsthand documentary for me because I am experiencing it but at the same time, i am filming it in my head as its happening. Another thing that helps me write my plays is sitcoms. For example, i love this show called "seinfeld". It is an nbc show produced by larry david, it ran from 89 to 98 and basically it follows the life and times of jerry seinfeld and his 3 other friends as they run into all kinds of inane problems and dilemmas. I find the show insanely comical, there is almost a hidden genius to it because I have started playing attention to the dialogue and its amazing how the screenwriters tie all there problems together in a verbal sense. Its like the actors always say everything at the right moment or when you least expect it and thats what makes the show so funny.
The world is one big play and our job is to find the script.
I can relate the world to a play just as much as anything else I want to relate it to because the world has indeed gone through millions of acts. The funny thing is that there is no audience because we all take part in it. The plants, trees etc are props and we just act on sheer improvision. It,s spectacular if you think about it. I say whatever I want to whomever i want, they respond back in whichever way they please and it just goes on forever. From generation to generation. Let me just explain to you more on why I feel the world is just a grand performance. I have mentioned a bit earlier something about the numerous acts that we play a part in. There is the war scene. That has had a significant effect on our society and mankind for that matter. Your a man at home making dinner for your kids right now and all of a sudden somebody comes to your door and knocks. When you open the door, Its the army...they want you to play a part...think of it like a moviestar being asked to be in a movie. Its like that, only difference is...you do not have a choice. This is the act of a lifetime and how well you play this part will determine whether you go home or not. They send you to this specialized acting workshop in which you will train and toil in bitter anguish and with painstaking methods to become one of the best actors in this play. This is just one of the many ways in which we "act". This is one of the many ways in which we do something that is separate from ourselves. You sort of develop this other type of mind or this other type of body which helps you act in that particular "play". That is the essence of acting, they arent playing themselves...they are playing somebody else.
Im not "playing" with you....yes, yes you are
This makes me wonder...if we live double lives or if there are double the amount of humans on the planet. Let me explain, acting gives life to some non-tangible being if you will. When you act, you create another mindset or mind,whichever you prefer. Now i believe that without the mind, a single human being would not be that at all. The mind runs anything and everything biologically related. Now with that being said, would,nt it be accurate to say that when we act, we produce another human being? Ponder at this for a bit.
