I’m a fan, not necessarily a subscriber, of conspiracy theories and my mind went to all the places, like; what if this was made before 9/11? What if a terrorist had seen something like this and it sparked his creativity? Is that possible? There are so many “what ifs” surrounding this day. What if it was US? Was it for the oil? What if we did it to ourselves, as a collective cutting for being so damned privileged? What if 9/11 hadn’t happened? We aren’t supposed to forget…so we don’t. We can’t. I think this mantra of not forgetting has malformed itself into the inability to forgive. That is the true loss, not just a loss of innocence, but of core values. Now we have the TSA and NSA colluding with fear and safety, suspecting all before them as a potential threat to national insecurity.
We aren’t allowed in the room while the adults play their game of Battleship and share the secrets of adulthood that we wouldn’t understand. At least our pillowcases are made from American flags and all we need to know is how to sing ourselves to sleep with the national anthem so we can wake up to the truth of tragedy and feel safe knowing our parents have our best interest in mind. Too much rhetoric, not enough transparency is our democracy. There is no such thing as full disclosure when the truth would hurt everyone involved. The government is a secret service that protects itself.
We aren’t supposed to simply not forget, but rather we are to remember what they want us to: that we are justified for the wrongs we commit, for these wrongs are right and just. That we are the victims. We are perpetrating victims living in a world with hypocrisy at its core.
What I learned from this souvenir of tragedy isn’t that revenge is justice and beliefs and economic resources are worthy of genocide…I learned that in the face of all that would tell us to do otherwise, that we need to forgive. We need to move forward and spread positive energy, not negative actions. We need to be more understanding of the broken glass on the street, how it got there, and how we can help clean it up.
There is one thing we should never forget: It’s not the good that happens in life that defines us, it is the fucked up shit that we have no control over that truly makes us who we are.

Q:How old were you when you first started doing standup? Also, you do short jokes, sort of one liners. Have you ever tried more long personal stories on stage?
I started when I was 25. I do some songs that are longer and personal. I also have done some storytelling shows, but on stage if im not telling short jokes, i’m just standing there in silence.
Q:Anymore Newark Wedding videos? I have a thing for near sighted, homicidal beard havers and Jena Friedman.
we are working on it. just trying to take it to the next level….
