A few weeks ago at around 11pm Lenny Bruce texted me. To be honest, I was quite offended by his insult yet I decided to not let my ego control me and in the coming weeks I was texting regularly with Andy Kaufman, Adolf Hitler, Mr. Rogers, Oprah Winfrey, Pete Seeger and others. I found it necessary to document the conversations in order to bring world peace. You can read many of them in Outcast Coupon Magazine and more are coming.
Last year the Center for Supportive Bureaucracy invited recipients of services to adopt people who live in hostile countries as family members in honor of the anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. This year I decided to memorize the tragic event with writing an official letter to the Japanese Prime Minister asking to change the anniversary to the 7th or 5th of August instead of the 6th so my daughter won't share her birthday with the victims, however, I feel that this is a very stupid, mediocre satire so I decided to censor it (however you can still read it here). I suspect I have some grammar mistakes in it in addition to the stupidity.
Coming soon - this mid September I'm going to Taos New Mexico to instruct youth who live in shelter how to issue Joy Permits, Forgiver's Licenses, Refurbished Report Cards and other Playful Paperwork documents. We'll offer ECN Office Hours at the PASEO festival and I hope that these teenagers will learn how to use humor and satire to overcome some difficulties or at least ease some of the pain and injustice they experience. I am so excited for this incredible opportunity and I'd keep you posted about it on social media or in the next book. I'm also going to lead a Silly Teshuva workshops for the Jewish High Holidays in Mishkan Shalom in Philadelphia and in Peekskill NY, give a PeachaKucha about my Facebook comedy act (you can see a draft here lmk what you think).
