Spring Done Sprung

Standard

Sring done sprung and love is in the air, or perhaps pheromones. Probably pheromones, but, let's pretend for one moment I'm not a cynic. So, love is in the air, and I drew a Cups spread for all you lovebirds. Let's see what the fertility bunny has brought us today:

What lies beneath: in the foundations position I see the Ace of Swords. This could go either way, my beauties; either bliss or torture. You either have the most wonderful sugar daddy or momma ever, or you are being chained in the basement against your will. In that case, kudos for breaking free long enough to read this garbage. Surely, there are better uses of your time, but who am I to judge.

Who you are, here and now: in the querent position I see the Lovers card, reversed. Hmm, coincidence? Perhaps. One thing's certain, you have love on your mind. You have taken your quarterly shower, slapped on some patchouli, and you are ready to venture forth in search of a nest you can share with some other lovely chickadee.

What stands in your way: in the obstacles position, I see the Nine of Swords. I'm taking the band-aide approach here. The object of your affection is not only less than interested , but really, really, has other crap on his or her mind. Things like how best to design a tin foiled hat to maximize defense against alien intrusion while still looking cute. Trust me, if you end up with this one, they're a fixer-upper.

What you hope for: in the aspirations position we have the Four of Wands card. I see you searching for stability in an inherently unstable person or situation. You want a non-traditional union, a happy little Manson family minus the crazy murder, plus the polyamory. Give it a shot. It works sometimes, I guess.

What has already happened: in the past position we've got the Two of Cups. Now the picture becomes clearer. When I was a teenager, I watched the Brady Bunch with a fresh perspective. I started to wonder if there was some sort of “special” relationship between Mr. And Mrs. Brady, and that maid of theirs. It seemed like they were too close. But, like, completely natural about it. I'm thinking now, that you, dear reader, are looking for your own Alice to add to the mix of an already sweet gig. Again, can't hurt to try. Well, maybe it can hurt, but it might be fun anyway.

What comes next: in the future position, we have the Eight of Pentacles. Some people have all the luck. Looks like you just might get your cake and eat it, too. What ever crazy stew your cooking will be deelish. That love adventure you want to have will most likely happen just as you want it to. To that, I say; screw tradition.

And here's hoping you have a better time with that than I can even imagine. I'm imagining it right now….wait, screw you! My opinion about love is that it's stupid, and messy, and worth it, and a crock of shit, and totally worth it. Get what you want, need, and makes you happy. You are a brave soul, and I commend you. It is my earnest opinion, however, and I'm pretty sure the J. Geils band will back me up here, that love stinks.

Sorry to keep you waiting, friends. I suspect that by now I'm talking to myself. I don't blame you all a bit, you were faithful, and I strayed. It's been weird as always. Haven't been feeling like a funny lady lately. Posted a pic of myself on the satans social networking site. Took a good look at it and saw some things that bothered me. First of all, it's taken in the hospital. I would like to tell you what I did to my knee to be in the hospital but autocorrect won't let me.

So, let me tell you what I saw. I have a low grade fever, and a Borked(thanks, autocorrect, that's exactly the word) knee, so of course I look like I've been rode hard and put up wet. There's more though. I'm smiling a bit. I like the smile. It's a defiance of the fact that I am hurt and at the hospital alone. But, it's only on my mouth.

The smile doesn't reach my eyes. The eyes bother me. I look trapped. There are secrets I can't tell, I guess. Ones I think I'm keeping even from myself. Too many hard times, and no way to share them. Who would I share them with, at any rate. Any body I could talk to is going through it with me. So, I drew some cards, the cards can speak my words. I'm going to post them, and if any of you are left following me, you tell me what they mean.


And also this one, just for reference.

Sorry to be a bummer, but I'll be funny again. Just give me a minute.

Thursday Morning Chit Chat (With Myself[mostly]) Because I’m Pissed Off

Standard

Just a four card draw. Because I said so, that's why. No reason. Shut up, “I said so” is too a good reason! Ok, ok, just do it already.

So, after this brief conversation, I drew four cards. In all honesty despondency led me to it. I'm hunkering down for a week-end in bed. Yes, starting on Thursday, my feelings are sore. I'm talking soup in bed, pretend I have the flu DESPONDENCY. Woke up to the news that a show verrrrrrry similar to one of mine has come out and opens this week. How does this keep happening???????? And WHY???????? So, I turn to the cards today before I lock myself in the bunker. Here's what they have to say:


Right off, we start with a bang. In the Earth position of the Elements spread I have the Chariot card reversed. Well, duh, “Yes, yes, I am stuck on the side of the road with four flat tires, thank you for noticing, Criagslist Killer. Oh, this looks like an opportunity for exploitation? Yeah, you would think that. Move along, creep, nothing to see here.” is what this card seems to scream. What I am screaming these days mostly is aimed at myself and it sounds like this: ” Yes, yes, that is a terrifically original idea. Now, STFU until you get it on paper and with copy-write, you fool!” I'm notoriously harsh on myself.

Next card up, in the Fire position is the King of Swords. This is nice because the cards really do understand my feelings. Of course I am fueled by a sense of injustice! Of course I want credit for what's mine. Duh, duh, and duh. Soooooo tired of telling people my ideas and seeing them lived out in other peoples work. That's just terrific. No, I don't think I'll be able to make it to your show featuring my work uncredited. I'll be staying home to lick the cats butt instead, because honestly, that sounds like more fun. Watch out, imitators, the King of Swords card says “I know what's up, and I'm coming for you. With a sword. Because I'm the king of them.” the King of Swords sounds remarkably like MojoJojo.

Now, in the Air position, that which influences me is King of Pentacles. The problem is I just want to work. I want to work so bad that I share my ideas to entice people to work with me. I need to knock that the fuck off, because obviously it isn't getting things done. People like my ideas. A lot. Obviously. It also hints at intelligence and ability combined in one solidly crazy package. Well, the crazy part is spot on.

Last card up in the Water position is Eight of Wands. So, the Eight of Wands is the card which links the past with the future. So, I am leaning to a bright new hope. New ideas and new work is on the horizon. These endeavors promise to be original and interesting. No matter what lies in the past this promises a fresh new beginning full of good work. And if I share any of these new ideas before they are ready then may I be beaten with all eight of these wands simultaneously.





 

Dancing With Dead People-Making It Happen

Standard

Alright, Update: I’ve been working on fundraising for my project this summer, a 6 episode web series of ghost stories called Dancing With Dead People. It’s an awesome idea that just needs to get off the ground. I have many professional actors and technicians dedicated to working on it, but we simply don’t have the equipment or money to get going. I’m really excited about the project because it reflects at least a years worth of ideas all rolled into one project. I’ve already created a video storyboard of the pilot episode and secured two of the most crucial locations. Now all I need is your help. Even a dollar will help. We are at 28% of our goal. Please, if you have couch change or other kinds of donations as listed (Make-up, set stuff, equipment, your services) send them our way and we will be eternally grateful. Thank you for listening, looking, and considering the idea of contributing!:

We’ve come a Long Way…Maybe?

Standard

About this time last year I woke up with a massive sugar hangover and a sense of determination equal to that of a badger with a grudge and a target. Thats the morning I thought of this weird blog. It was the start of our beautiful friendship, ladies and lords, and I've never looked back. It isn't just because of that disc misalignment either.

I was truly looking for something, anything, that allowed me to express myself in a positive manner. I settled on this. I had some setbacks as you may remember. Those set backs made trying hard look like about as much fun as strapping 39 live cats to my body and jumping in the shower. But, what the hell, I'm a glutton for punishment, so I kept trying hard to do things I love. And then I had an amazing year. I wrote, directed, and produced two theatrical shows. I wrote, directed, and produced one short film. All of these projects are on-going and I am super excited about sharing them with you because this, right here was the genesis of all of that. Just knowing someone was out there listening during my darkest hours and my brightest moments of triumph helped me to keep going.

So, thanks for that, and at the end of this post I will share updates about what is coming next. For now, though, how 'bouts a freeeeee reading. For all y'all. For the summer and what it may bring:



 

Here's what we got, folks. First card up representing the past, which, is in this case, the Spring, we see the two of cups card. Remember earlier, like a paragraph ago, when I said something about a badger and a grudge? Well, this is the same, only different. The past for you was filled with passion. Sorta like that skunk in the cartoons who was always creeping on some poor cat. Focus, people, focus, we can't afford to screw around right now!

Next card represents the present, the here and now. The Moon is a strange card. On the one hand it warns not to buy into that bullshit time-share your shady uncle is always trying to peddle. That's always good advice. On the other hand it advises mercy, compassion, and unity. So, my advice here? Definately read the fine print of any contract, but, hey, play nice, be kind, love the ones you're with.

Next card represents what is to come, or the future, in laymans terms. Six of Wands. Look at that pompous ass riding that horse like he's better than everybody. Well, it's because he IS better than everybody. And since this represents your future it's a good thing. That Chia pet you planted a year ago will finally bloom in all its silly green glory. That rare Pokemon card you bid on will be yours, oh yes it will. The thing you hoped for in your heart of hearts will happen. Remember, though, to play nice. No gloating. It's rude and it makes you look like an asshole.

That's all I got folks? I promised an update for y'all and here it is. I'm working on a web series this summer. It's called Dancing with Dead People and it should be right up your alley. Ghost stories with a twist. Here's the link to the kickstarter campaign. Feel free to pledge, to tell friends, and to support. I'm making it with or without the funding, but it sure would help: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/121569901/dancing-with-dead-people

Thanks, as always for paying attention.

 

Aside

Alright folks, it’s been a long, long time since I posted and that is because I have been busy living live a little bit. So, something has happened. All the ideas I was brewing last summer and so frustrated with are finally becoming reality. 

So, here’s the skinny. I am getting ready to run my second show this year. The title is Red Threads, Roots Run Deep and it’s a show about how many of us come from the place where we differ. Our roots are our diversity. Serious stuff from the queen of smart assery, I know. 

Because I have actually gotten this going a little I am planning on taking the show on the roads of Texas this summer with The Drunk Tarot Road Show that I talked about last summer.

Here’s where you come in. We need a logo. It needs to have our company name, The Drunk Tarot Road Show, along with an illustrated logo picture. This here is an official contest. There will only be one winner. The prize will be one full Tarot reading per month for 12 months.

Please send all submissions here and we will decide by democratic vote once I have enough entrees. 

As always, thank you for looking. If we get our show I will be posting from the road about our adventures complete with pics. 

 

Much love,

Googy the Great

Not the Scottish play, but hey-we are trying, ok??? or, Announcing The Drunk Tarot Road Show(Maybe)

Adoption – Lets talk about it

Alright, Queens and Kings, I am finally getting a show produced! I am so excited to announce it. The title is Red Threads and it explores the theme of adoption from the perspective of those who have experienced it. If any of you out there have a view point and share the experience in some way, please let me know. The link is above. You know you can always contact me with your stories and comments as well. Your words are important. It only takes a few minutes and it will mean so much to me.

Holiday Beer, Fear…Cheer…Something like that.

Standard

What do the holidays hold in store for us? If you are like me you would rather strap 39 live cats to your body and jump in the shower than celebrate the holidays, especially if relatives are involved. I mean, come on, I cannot be the only one who's Grandma declares the whole family cray cray, then does a striptease, even though she is stone cold sober. Ahem. Moving on. Since this reading involves not only the holidays but the coming new year I feel it is appropriate to torture you with the zodiac spread. And by torture I mean buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy read. Seriously, this might suck. It's been a long time and I'm rusty.

Querent: The Sun card depicts all the turns you have taken on the great big spin we have made around the globe in the last 365 days. Its natural for you to feel a bit dizzy. For whatever reason, you have felt a special significance in the passing of time and your hurtle through space this year. Perhaps is is the first time in your life that you thought of the earth as a time machine that we are collectively breaking with pollution and contagious stupidity. Or maybe your Doctor Who fascination has just reached a new pinnacle of bonkers. No one likes the bowtie. It looks good on one person on earth and his name rhymes with Schloctor Schloo.

Gemini: The Magician(reversed) suggests it's been a rough year for you in terms of communicating with others. Not a lot of people actually speak Klingon, so there's that. Also, Ixney on the Igpey Atenley. You might try using the native tongue of the area you live in this year. Couldn't hurt.

Cancer: Two of Cups(reversed) signifies that below the cool exterior of your Spock persona lies a smoldering Tango-dancing sex god. It might also suggest a more intimate relationship with food than is strictly healthy. In other words, stop eating your feelings. They taste like ashes and the tears of baby unicorns anyway, and that. can't be good. Not that I would know from personal experience…

Leo: Three of Cups shows that you have enjoyed a healthy, happy love life. Screw you and your domestic bliss. I am NOT jealous. I'm sure your spouse isn't at all the degenerate gambler that I heard they were. And I just know if they heard about that restraining order that Jennifer Love Hewitt filed against you they would totally understand.

Virgo: Five of Wands(reversed) says you better use that can of whoop ass you've been saving before it expires. Which it totally will before the years end. Got a beef with the mother-in-law? Throw down now and you will likely win. Your boss punking you? Introduce his butt to your boot. Long story short, you are hot to trot right now. Just don't try kicking your own ass or it will rip a hole in the space-time continuum because you just cannot lose.

Libra: Two of Pentacles reveals a tendency to live out the imagined in the real world. They have a name for that. Clinically it's known as dumbassery. Or also as Get-Off-The-Cross-We-Need-The-Wood syndrome. The recommended treatment is to retract your head from your own rectum. What I mean is, things seem worse than they are because you are imagining them to be. Nothing is as bad as it seems right now. Furthermore, don't buy into any Nigerian Prince schemes. Be extra careful about anything suggested to you in correspondence. If someone sends you a chia pet unsolicited, don't do it. Dollars to donuts those are pot seeds, not chia seeds.

Scorpio: The Chariot(reversed) hint that hot times are to come in the old town tonight. Or the immediate future. By hot I mean buy riot gear and hunker down because things are about to get ugly. I don't know what you did in a past life to deserve this year but I suggest you repent. It's just a wild and hairy one and I don't blame you for *feeling like kicking puppies through an electric fan.

Sagittarius: Nine of Cups shows that hope is in sight. That collectible set of My Little Pony figurines you've been bidding on will be YOURS. Maybe that's what you are saving the can of whoop ass for. Who knows. I can only offer the advice my grandmother gave me before leaving for college: “Eat more fruit than cheese. Also, never spit in the wind”. Seriously, that's all I've got.

Capricorn: Eight of Cups says again that what you thought was important is of no consequence. Instead of speaking to your emotional life, however, this card is referencing your work. The guy taking your lunch from the fridge? Most likely your boss, so let it goooo. Besides, that's what you get for having a monopoly on the very last Twinkies on earth.

Aquarius: Death is a card that represents change rather than actual termination of life, so don't get your panties in a bunch. I have to say, overall this reading sucks. I wouldn't want to be the person for whom it is intended. If I were you, what I would do ten minutes after reading this is hunker down with your remaining Twinkie stash and don't come out again until this whole Mayan calendar fiasco has run its course. What I would do ten minutes preceding that is mail me half of your Twinkie stash and leave me the rest in your will.

Pisces: Ten of Swords is for the win. Sort of. Seriously, who did you piss off? This is the last card on the reading so I desperately want it to be a smiley face, but it just isn't. Does Acme still make anvils? My advice to you is don't go outside without a lead umbrella. In fact, Just stay inside.And so ends my holiday reading, not with a bang, but a warning.

I have so enjoyed writing these and I will continue to write them when I am not deep in study of academic bullshit. Thank you for yor comments, likes, and general support. Also, please forgive me for the sloppy formatting asBlogsy is determined to melt my tolerance for technology.



 

The Best is Yet To Come…or the mark of the beast, whichever.

Standard

I'm officially at 666 views as of noon today! Thank you all for enabling me to soar to such heights in a mere three months. In celebration I thought I would, you know, do that voodoo that we do so well. Or something like that. I thought I would just take a peek into the future of this blog because in all the columns that I have written I have never read the cards for ours truly. So, here goes with an Elements spread.

Earth: The World reversed: what a coinkydink. The World card for the Earth position. Back the Truck Up! It's as if the cards know my love of synchronicity. This card suggests, first off, that I need to stop typing one handed because that shit is just slowing me down. Seriously I need to put down the donuts and get cracking because this bullshit doesn't write itself. Also, it says that I might have reached a point of stagnation and I might consider mixing things up a bit. To that I say; screw you, card, I'm giving it all I got.

Air: Five Of Cups card sez that what this blog lacks in intellectual quality it more that makes up for in sincerity. Guys, you're with me, right? You know I pour my heart into every single post, right? It also tell the tale of a journey well traveled, to completion, and enjoying some success. At least someone it getting a happy ending.

Fire: King of Pentacles is a card that tells of the ambition to set the world ablaze with the creativity and genius of this blog. Probably a little far reaching, but one can dream. I mean, would it kill somebody to nominate this sucker for some kind of award??? I don't think so, but here we are, naked and awardless. Don't ask what one thing has to do with another, it will just lead to more confusion. The point is, I do love this blog and really, really do want it to entertain. Y'all let me know if I'm screwing it up, ok?

Water: Six of Swords is a card that lays out a journey by water. Huh. Now I'm starting to think the cards are just effing with me. At least it does intimate that the trip will be pleasant, which is good because it's too freaking late to turn back now. We're already in it, neck deep. Together. Insert maniacal laugh here, please. And also, keep reading. The best is yet to come. Hugs and kisses to all of you who give a shit and even those of you who don't. I love you anyway.

P.S. I don't really know why I have a Patsy Cline song here except it seemed appropriately crazy and eebil.
