In Smartphones, inspired by Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, the avant-garde playwright takes his privilege to the absurdist limit. Mixing the Absurd, Ridiculous and the Surreal with a layer of 'digital madness', he brings human shadows and insecurities to light, making us reflect on life and to laugh, nervously at times, in the process.
"Usually we space these things out a bit, but I'm sure we can come up with fresh, exciting ideas to alarm and piss off Americans until the 2016 election and beyond."
It's Halloween time, and you can never tell what scares people. But we're going to try and find out together. See, it's not just heights or enclosed spaces or spiders (or clowns) that send people into fits of terror.
There is a secret I'd like to share with you. Today is the only day of the year where you have Carte Blanche to take whatever your gluttonous heart desires from others and claim it as your own, without legal repercussions.
I went to college in the early 2000 timeframe when life was simple. Few people had mobile phones, and we had to take turns sharing the dorm landline, where there was no "call waiting" or caller ID. Sigh. The simple life.
Gilead Sciences is publicly traded, but Turing Pharmaceuticals has no stockholders to report to. Just Shkreli, the former hedge fund manager. A group known for having the same conscience as starving hyenas in heat. These guys make a safari of lion-killing dentists look cuddlesome.
Since Baron von Burpenstein showed up, it's been hard to sleep. And hence hard to find time to exercise, or brush my teeth. I used to take pride in my appearance, but I am so overjoyed at the pleasures of fatherhood I hardly even spend all day in front of the bathroom mirror weeping.
What I needed was a lazy way to do the same thing without all the food prep, a way to cheat the system, basically. That's how I came up with my greatest idea yet: the Larabar cleanse.
Fall is in the air. The leaves are changing, pagans are celebrating the autumnal equinox and the blood type of the average cat lady is 'Pumpkin Spice Latte'. Halloween is upon us.
Some folks are wired to take bigger risks than others, like those guys who fly around the Alps in squirrel suits or have extramarital affairs with fitness instructors. But that doesn't mean you're not living on the edge when you mix plaid with paisley. Or try to save a marsupial.
Trump as Speaker would also be the greatest campaign move in history. It is not a time-consuming job; all you have to do is make top-line decisions and make deals. The House would no longer be a place for bickering. Everyone would have an incredible time, and put the "grand" back in "Grand Old Party."
Every one of us has encountered a situation that we wish we could get out of, and do so in a way that won't make our lives miserable for the foreseeable future.
Some observers feel the Soylent Green admission should come as no surprise. "Auto makers have been skirting the regulations for years," says Klaus Brinkbäumer, editor-in-chief of Der Spiegel magazine. "Besides, Volkswagen literally means 'People's Car.' So..." he said with a shrug.
Polyamory, polygamy, or whatever you want to call it, increases the number of naked bodies you're legitimately going to be allowed to see and touch, whatever your sex or sexual orientation. The increased population of sexual partners is going to increase your chances for getting laid. It's simple math.
