What turns me on:
You are a woman between the ages of 40+ to 60+. You have had some experience being in a relationship that has revolved around creative collaboration and loving intimacy. I was in such a relationship that involved comedy writing, comedy performance and video production. Being in such a relationship was the closest to experiencing "Heaven on Earth" for me so far in my life.
Coming out of the end of 2012 my perspective is now in seekingout female and male activity partners related to collaborative creative writing with film script writing first, theater script writing second, documentary writing third and comedy writing fourth.
In the past I have posted a personal ad on Craig's list with the title: Lover/Creative Collaborator. The genuine responses to my post appeared to be "clueless" about this title. You, lovely woman, would of course NOT be clueless.
I'm not good at long distance relationships, so if you do not live in the Sedona area please do not respond to this ad. If
you are intending to visit this area to see if you want to
move here I would love to be your guide providing you
connect with my profile on some level.
I'm also not at all conventional as in more on the bohemian side. I am an artist type though have a background in the social sciences (psychology, parapsychology, sociology and anthropology).
My creative outlets have involved film & video production, theater and comedy sketch script writing, comedy performance, video production and creating mixed media collages. I also enjoy acting and was in the first two and only so far sketch comedy groups that originated from Sedona (aka Sedonut Land) - The Vortex Players & The Ozone Players back in 1988. I have acted in local community theater plays, performed sketch comedy and improv as well in front of live audiences. To me comedy (a healing art) must involve material related to The New World Order vs The New Weird Order. In other words, doing comedy is my form of political activism. In 2009 it came to me that comedy
is a sacred healing art/practice.
Now more than ever before America needs powerful political satire to wake us all up via sketch comedy presentations on
the internet as well as independent produced political satire
films and theater plays.
Back in the first 3 months of 2008 I taught a class for seniors at Osher/Ollie titled "Video Scene Acting Group" that involved using improv techniques to develop characters and lines within the context making a social satire tv pilot of life in Sedona. The downside to that experience was that I was not able to deliver an edited (from about 120 minutes to 80+ minutes) dvd to all participants. Number one, I needed help from someone else in terms of what to cut and what leave. Number two I simply could not teach myself simple video editing techniques as in iMovie 6 even though I had learned 16mm film editing with sound on a movieola at Berkeley Film Institute in the late
seventies. My editing teacher was Star Wars' George Lukas'
In 2010 and 2011 I placed ads in the local newspaper to start a sketch comedy group. Although I have been trained in improv by a Sedona woman who trained at Second City and have attended a free gathering of improv locally (and March 2012) was kicked out for being "too intense") - I find improv for improv sake only to be a waste of time. This type of activity is closest to mutual masturbation as one can get without entering the "porn context". I had a love/hate relationship with that gathering because I want to use the wonderful material that is presented but lost in a moment or two - use some of that material and hone it into a comedy sketches (up to 8 minutes long) that could be performed anywhere and video recorded and put on a website for everyone else to enjoy. After all comedy can be a major healing art. Why waste comedy by doing improv for improv sake with no recording unless you are a micro mutual
"Sketch Comedy Group Forming: 80% internet & 20% local live performances; experience in comedy writing and or comedy performance preferred; a plus if you have video editing skills or website design skills; must be willing to work on speculation."
You may know someone besides yourself who may be interested in this project. I do not have video editing skills but am pretty good at using my digital video camera (i.e. edit within the camera). I also have no web design skills so would be looking for people into that.
You may not be interested in a date type meeting but a network type meeting in which you introduce me to your friend(s) who may be interested in responding to what this newspaper ad is about. You may also be interested in being my friend rather than going in the date direction. Please message me either way. I answer all messages sent to me.
The focus of the sketch comedy group is now only one of several foci that this website will mirror. There will be a "Fine Art Gallery" as well as music videos and channeling videos as well as interviews related to the vortex culture of Sedona. I really love the forms of social satire and parody in the context of comedy as a healing art. I have lived in Sedona twice with a total of 25 + years. Life here can be very kooky to say the least.
Besides liking to be a "Fool" I am an unorthodox intellectual with a BA in Psychology and graduate coursework in Parapsychology, Fine Art Practice & Art History, Cultural Anthropology & Archaeology.
I am looking for a playmate whose inner child is wide awake and raring to have fun as well as be funny within the context of service to the spiritual transformation that is going on all around us.
