Which is a nice idea and all, but we all know that petitions have all the effectiveness of a letter to the editor.
According to this site, Fox has some advertisers that would be absolutely perfect for a sponsored pepper spraying:
On The Border Mexican Restaurant presents, “Megyn Kelly’s Scoville Challenge!”
On what the XBLA needs to do to remain competitive:
On video games, value and meaning:
On theatre artists making a living:
On Kristen Wiig, sexiness, funniness and 4th wave feminism
There’s too many cooks at this recording session, so I’m keeping my head down.
So, for this new, still somewhat secret, project I did a test session with a couple little girls that live in my neighborhood. They’re the adorable moppets I’ve mentioned before. They loved the characters, laughed at a couple of the jokes, and loved playing the game. There’s still a lot of work to do, but it was so thrilling to see the older one (3rd grader) start to understand the math concept that was being taught.
I’m sharing this for all the folks who have put up with me endlessly gabbing on and on about this project. I can’t thank my friends enough for the sympathetic ears and the helps and the introductions and everything. I wish you could’ve seen the delight on the kids’ faces when they started to “get it”. It was awesome.
I was fortunate enough to go to school JUUUUUUUUST prior to the widespread advent of digital cameras. So for parties, events, vacations etc, you would take your pictures, finish the roll of film, take that film to the walgreens (or whatever) and then 4 days later you would have hard copy prints of the photos you took.
Rolls of film being what they are, you’d probably take 12 pictures from the first back to school party, another couple at opening night, and blow the rest at the christmas party, so the pictures you’d get would cover anywhere from 2 nights to 6 months of your life.
I took advantage of this by stealing people’s cameras at parties and taking naked pictures of myself. These were tastefully done: think naked baby on a bear skin rug, rather than full-frontal views of my business. The best results usually occurred right before, say, christmas break, when the prankee would be going home to get their pics developed. They’d show off the pictures of their latest semester: Oh look it’s opening weekend of Lysistrata! Look, it’s my roommate and I at the commons. Oh look it’s…well…that’s this guy i know and he’s…oh god.
So since digital photography ruined that delayed reaction, all this is to say, if you’re drunk at a party, I’m going to steal your cell phone and start posting on facebook.
