Isherbook

April 17th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

I was shooting the shiz with some playwrights last night and we all had some pretty spectacular stories of terrible reviews. Like I was briefly trapped on an elevator with Charles Isherwood once en route down to my play, which he later tore a new bum hole. Another writer was avoiding reading her LA times review, until, while on a bus, the paper BLEW ONTO HER LAP OPEN TO IT. And so on, and so forth. Sad and hilarious tales of woe, of confidence or lack thereof, of feeling misunderstood, of profanity, of Facebook fights, of lost opportunities, of Chardonnay, of the will to go / write on.

AND SO: I think I m going to collect and compile these stories. I don’t know what for, but I really think they’d be fascinating. Playwrights feel a lot of envy for each other, and we don’t talk about it, not nearly enough, but instead craft narratives of the other playwright’s smooth, joyous career in our minds.  I think it’d be valuable for us all to hear about each other’s dark moments of New York Times and Despair. And so, I’m going to do that. I’LL SLEEP WHEN I’M DEAD Y’ALL AND PROBABLY ALSO TONIGHT

Do yourself a flavor and listen to this incredibly inspiring Ted Talk with Gabby Giffords and her remarkable husband. Remember her? 2008, Got shot in the head, recovered? Well, currently recovering still, but it’s quite miraculous. GIve it a listen and never complain or feel discouraged basically ever again.

LILY!

April 14th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

The happiest of Birthdays to my always friend Lily, who spent her day trying on giant ball gowns in various costume shops throughout London, further solidifying my deep affection for her, as if there were ANY question of it after our first meeting, some 7 years ago, when she chased me down the street  to see if I wanted to write an evening of monologues with her basically just about avocado’s, and then we did that, and then we were transcontinental friends forever.

Kismet.

April 13th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

(These are pokey sticks. They are basically like sticks of pizza that covered in absurd amounts of cheese that you get delivered to your dumb room that come with multiple sides of ranch. Its box NEVER fits in your tiny fridge so it just kinds of sits on the floor, congealing, and then it’s also breakfast, and then it’s also lunch.)

Match. Made. In Heaven. As follows:

Super nice, Super Ripped Personal Trainer: Hi, so how can we help you today?

Me: I don’t know, I’m just kinda bored with my workout and I feel like I’m wasting time when I workout and there is such little time, like in life, and I’m also tired of constantly trying to lose ten pounds and not really doing that at all and I’m tired of wasting that brain and emotional space because I’d really like to fill it with other things that are not Chips. CHIPS! so I figured if I gave you the $800,000 you require to train me I’ll be so ridden with guilt and panic over all of the money that I just gave you that I might actually make some progress? Also, hello.

Personal Trainer: Nice monologue. I can help ya. Where ya from?

Me: North Carolina.

PT: ME TOO!

ME: NO YOU’RE NOT.

PT: I AM, I’M FROM ASHEBORO!

ME: NO YOU’RE NOT!

PT: I AM! I WENT TO UNC CHAPEL HILL AND STUDIED THEATER!

ME: ME TOO!

PT: OH MAN, I GOT SO FAT AT UNC!

ME: ME TOO!

ME / PT: ALL OF THE CHIK FILA AND ALL OF THE POKEY STICKS, OH MAN WE WERE SO FAT

ME: WANT TO BE MY TRAINER FOREVER?

PT: OKAY!

ME: HERE IS MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF MONEY!

PT: OKAY GREAT NOW LIFT THIS MASSIVE THING NINE TIMES! TAR!

ME: HEEEEEELLLSSS!

the what and the why

April 11th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

A Fedex truck crosses lanes and slams into Bus full of prospective low income and FIRST GENERATION ATTENDEE COLLEGE HOPEFULS en route to visit a university, see about scholarships, etc, killing 10 of these prospective low income and first generation college attendees and the young admissions officer who worked tirelessly to get them in the door.

WHAT.

WHY.

Sometimes tragedy feels not just ironic but down right malicious.
