The Wish to Wolverine Auditions 

A lover's wish comes too true 


Actors wishing they knew why were auditioning 


The Wish (Martin verse) 

Here was a wish she made one night
This boy to love and hold her tight
To be her hope and guiding light
To be the reason all is right
-
Who knew that wishes do come true
And with a tear he loved her too
Into her arms this boy now flew
Yet without wish what would he do
-
In love they passed both day and night
Then in a time got married too
Her heart relaxed as moments flew
And something here just wasn’t right
-
Now though he stayed forever true
Other’s arms would hold her tight
And for his love he’d leave on light
Till she felt shame what did I do
-
She tried so hard to make wrongs right
What could she do to free her light
And as she died he held her tight
Here was a wish she made one night 


(This was written in Martin verse. A poetic form I put together in 2010. If you would like more instruction on this form, send me an email. Note how the line, "Here was a wish she made one night", changes in meaning from the beginning to the end.- This poem uses the famed "Magic Tear" I often reference. When I was in the 9th grade, I played Prince Dauntless in a girl's school production of "Once Upon A Mattress". It was there I met Arlene. She was the pianist in the orchestra. We became friends (and that's all). When the last show was over and it was time to say goodbye, I ran into Arlene  as I was about to go out the door. I wasn't planning to see her again. She was sad, but tried to act happy. As I took her hand, to say goodbye, a tear escaped and touched my arm. That night I couldn't get Arlene out of my mind. The next day I was waiting outside here school and we shared our first kiss.) 


Let's wipe the tear from our eyes and get to the video I ran into for the poem: 
Bliss "Wish you were here" 

From romance to humor 


The wolverine is also called the skunk bear or the stink bear, because they can secrete a nasty smelling liquid from their anal scent glands. It is unclear if Marvel's super hero, Wolverine, also has this power. We do know that Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine in movies, will be leaving the role after the next movie, "Wolverine 3". Connon O'Bren's team has thrown together an audition to find tomorrow's Wolverine. 
No, the actors were not asked to fart. "Wolverine Auditions - CONAN on TBS" 
(Connon wanted to point out: His team was not limited by race, gender or age.)

Lovers’ Dreams to 7 Ways to Chop an Onion 

A Lesson for lovers 


A lesson for lovers of onions 


Lovers’ Dreams (transforming poem) 

He’d spend his days dreaming of you
Each heartbeat reminder of you
The sun’s in the sky just for you
Sweet scents that flowed by came from you
-
Each tune was a love song for you
The words he’d rehearse were for you
He’d feel every second go by
Another reflection of you
-
Oh how did he live without you
He listened for some sweet reply
Some reasoning that might apply
The world he knew spun around you
-
Now here is this shadow of guy
Who once possessed keys to the sky
But now should he laugh or just cry
For still not a word heard from you
-
The wind very clear is his sigh
As tears gently kiss young man’s eye
The walls fill with echoes of why
That’s how lovers’ dreams slowly die


(Here is an easy example of a transforming poem. It starts out with one rhyme sound and ends with another. This style is a clever way to use a poetic structure to help illustrate a message of change. The trick is the supplety used to introduce the new rhyme sound. One way I solved the introduction was by using solely the word "you". - When Arlene and I moved in together, we got a small Twin Peaks apartment, with a great view of the San Francisco skyline. We were still heavily into our "teenage kissing". Other than getting there and leaving, the place was magic for lovers. One day, I woke up and noticed Arlene and I weren't kissing as much. How could this happen in a "Love Nest"? Unlike the poem, we were clueless how and when changes came about. This realization would be one of our strengths for rougher times ahead.)


Referring back to the poem, I've selected: The Stylistrics "You Are Everything" 

A lesson of a different type 


Did you know that Libya holds the world's record for onion eating? It is estimated 66.8 pounds of onions is consumed per person each year. How did the National Onion Association come up with that? With all those onions consumed, Libya needs some innovative ways to chop onions. To the rescue comes Gregg of You Suck At Cooking. Not much is known about Gregg. With a YouTube channel called You Suck At Cooking, I wonder why. If I know one thing, one never insults a person with a knife. 
Get your onion ready. "7 Ways to Chop an Onion: You Suck at Cooking (episode 9)"

That Fateful Night to Girls’ Sleepover Gets Weird 

What happened to the people on that fateful night 


What happen to the girls at that fateful sleepover 


That Fateful Night (poem) 

The church bells tolled that fateful night
And no one came and no one came
To call for aid in time of plight
All hid in shame they hid in shame
-
The cries for help went everywhere
They acted as if they weren’t there
But at their windows they did stare
Who’s to blame who’s to blame
-
The flames soon made the sky ignite
Made spirits lame set spirits lame
As unknown frenzy heightened fright
Courage maim humans maim
-
Confusion’s clouds then filled the air
As victims met and knelt in prayer
For neighbors such a shame they share
Tears they tame shame they tame
-
Then in the morning of their light
Conscience reclaim their pride reclaim
They did their best to set things right
Each for his name each for His Name


(There are a number of things going on in this poem. Let's just focus on the pattern of the last lines and the related limes. There is a reason behind the repetition. As tightly as this poem is constructed, there is room for personal interpretation. - I wove this poem together from my experience working with people. I have been on stage and in front of people most of my life. In school, I was taught to entertain. In business, I was trained to convince. The masons needed both. I learned that people (as a whole) do not always act on the best of their intentions. Something holds us back. At times we adopt a mob mentality. It is easy to blame it on fear or ignorance. But I think it is something else. What is the answer?  I do bot know. All I do know is that people have rallied there talents to restore hope in tomorrow.)


With that said, here's: Gregorian "Frozen" 

I hope we're not too late for the sleepover 


The original title of the Broadway musical “Hello Dolly!” was “Dolly: A Damned Exasperating Woman.” I just thought you needed to know that. What...You never heard of "Hello Dolly"? Well, I hope you remembered your pajamas. We're expected at a sleepover. One put one by the "girls" of College Humor 2 (CH2), Sebastian Conelli, Jo Firestone, Kiki Mikkelsen, Lindsay Calleran and Connor Ratliff. That's right, Connor Ratliff, actor, writer and comedian. 
No, this is not a gay party. Hurry up! The "girls" are waiting. "Girls’ Sleepover Prank Call Gets Weird"

The Evil to Commentators of EA UFC Glitches 

A hero confronts Evil plaguing town 


Two heroes turn an evil into laughter 


The Evil (Italian sonnet) 

An evil cast its cloud upon a town
The people sighed perhaps it will not stay
But it got darker as they talked away
Confused by their own words the people drown
-
They searched for help in mirrors of their face
For surely someone else will find their sun
They hid their tears in dreams that they had spun
As shadows made it hard for truth to trace
-
But there a light a person came along
A common neighbor weary of this blight
To fight this night delight he might invite
If one could stand together they’d be strong
-
They watched as evil brushed this soul aside
The air resounded shouts if I was you
But as soul vanished all their darkness grew
Although this loss at least this person tried


(To make the message of this story/sonnet stronger, I took the ending in a different direction. - As you may know, I am a mason. My Lodge ts very old. Its members, and the Lodge, were at least 50 years behind the times. We were dying. One of our challenges (Evils) was racism. I became a part of a secret group (in a "secret" group) working to bring blacks into the Lodge. We saw the necessity of our efforts and if we were discovered the Lodge would die. One of our members found 3 gentlemen who wanted to join. I was assigned to investigate 2 of them. We kept their race a secret. In 1993 the Lodge lost some racists but were ready for the 21st century. Or so we thought. As it turned out, the Lodge (blacks included) didn't want Filipinos in charge. (A challenge surmounted by Danillo Dauz, who was a spectacular ritualist.) "If it ain't one thing, it's another.")


For all of this: Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard "Now We Are Free" 

Next evil 


There was a fight between Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president and Electronic Arts (EA) during the development of EA UFC, Though the latest version was released June 17, 2014, it still suffer from gamers' greatest evils. Glitches! Into the fray come Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan. two noted play-by-play sports commentator, who also commentate in EA UFC. Ever heard, "turn that frown upside down"? That's Mike's and Joe's water balloon for evil. 
And a real funny viral video. "ROGAN AND GOLDBERG COMMENTATE EA UFC GLITCHES 4!!!"

What Promise to The Telemarketer 

What is it that holds a lover 


What new technique calls to us 


What Promise (English sonnet) 

Amid those special moments set aside
There drifts a wonder who had been the day
A dream of others happening his way
What promised hopes had rushed to fill this stride
-
Amid some special heartbeats set astray
There drifts a tear for all the thoughts he tried
A dream or two which others have applied
With promised echoes of his yesterday
-
A curtain casts a shadow on his show
A silence he had left so long ago
Allowed drift in ponderous never know
-
Amid last kisses moonlight did ignite
There drifts some music of a lasting night
What promised dream still dazzles the starlight


(This sonnet holds two surprises. Did you notice the similarities in the opening of the first two quatrains? They disappear in the "problem" trio and reappear in the "resolution" trio. This, and love theme. make some not notice that this poem does not follow the traditional form for English sonnets of this style. - My wife, all women I think, like surprises. One little extra I like to throw in, to help insure success. Always throw in something familiar. For instance: when I kidnapped my wife for a surprise trip to New York, we went to see her favorite musical (Cats) after doing her favorite thing (clothes shopping).)


With this and the sonnet we have: Michael Buble "The Best Is Yet To Come" 

From one trap to another 


Did you know that most "food" in advertising is inedible? For instance: Ice cubes are often acrylic, and wet paper towels are used to keep hamburger buns looking fresh and moist. This is just one trick used by advertisers. Our friends Key and Peele (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele), of Comedy Central, may have stumbled on a new trick. Watch as a man preparing a surprise dinner, of his wife's favorite meal, falls victim to the new tactic. 
When you finish laughing, I have ab eye opener. "Key & Peele - The Telemarketer" 
(Some companies have been using a tactic like this on us for years.)

And Here We Are to Drunk Test Prank 

A message of hope in times of trouble 


A prankster with a badge turns troubles into smiles 


And Here We Are (repeating poem) 

And here we are
A shining star
Without a scar
No fate to mar
-
Amid dark pools
Where evil rules
And hands of fools
Hold all the tools
And here we are
A shining star
-
A muddy stream
Without a gleam
Where poor men dream
Of self esteem
And here we are
A shining star
-
Cruel rivers flow
Through hearts of woe
Which hope did know
So long ago
And here we are
A shining star
-
And gutters fill
With lifeless swill
Who lost their will
In bitter chill
And here we are
A shining star
-
As strangers drowned
And pasts are ground
Regrets profound
They look around
-
And here we are
A shining star
Without a scar
No fate to mar


(This poem illustrates one of life's illusions; and fact. Each group of troubles is bad, but as the poem progresses, the repetition of bad ideas makes the next seem worse. It is like a series of misfortunes, we all have experienced. In the poem, this continues until the "shining star" affirmation disappears. Then it reappears! Not only that; the entire beginning idea rings out. - Arlene and I faced a lot of problems once we moved in together and we faced life's challenges. They can be quite daunting, as we all can agree. Luckily Arlene and I discovered, we were a team. Working and meeting each day as a team, with our individual talents, we could be more.)


On this theme and with a bit of shameless advertising thrown in: 
To promote - Random Acts of Kindness 
Matisyahu "One Day" 

From hope to smiles 


According to The New York Times (April 19. 1987), it only takes 10 muscles to smile but it takes 100 to frown. But if we research the internet, we may have one more cause to smile. Lance Allen is back. This time without his father. Lance is a Los Angeles based actor, writer and comedian. The Los Angeles Police Department realized such a public relations success with Lance's last video, "Funny Father's Day Cop Prank!", they lent him another car and uniform and cut him loose again. 
One has to wonder, after watching this fun video, how many of the victims suspected this was a prank. "Drunk Test Prank"
