Thoughts about some guys

Last night was amazing ... Henry Rollins is one of the best storytellers I've heard since me mum read me the Beatrix Potter stories when I was 3.

We sat down in the theater expecting him to talk for an hour and a half or so; three hours later he was still going strong. Topics ranged from social commentary mixed with travelogues and music stories, and all were told with passion, intelligence and humour.

But holy hell, is he intense. Not a bad thing really...I think he woke up Angry Grrl a bit. I am inspired to kick my complacent ass into gear.

There's been some interesting commentary in the blogoshere about Scott Fischman playing the BBT3.

I'll freely admit that I was disconcerted when I saw him on the registered player list, and even more so when I was seated at his table. A bit freaked out actually. One of the last lingering pieces of crap from my childhood that rattles around in my head is a huuuuge fear of looking like an idiot in front of people I don't know in a field where I am having some pretty serious doubts about my ability to succeed.

But I'm glad he was there. The desire not to look like a goober gave way to a desire to kick some ass; and I'll be honest it's been a while since that competitive urge really kicked in that hard.

So thank you Scott, for waking up Competitive Grrl. I am inspired to kick my complacent ass into gear.

    Great results in the Big Game Kat! Congrats!

    I for one am excited about Fischman's involvement in the BBT3 for the same kind of reason you alluded to... I believe it might raise the level of my game. Be it the desire to not "look like a goober," or simply the desire to play optimally, I've found the higher the level of competition, the less mistakes I find myself making. The pro was at my table throughout the MATH last night, and I felt like I was really honed in... and I think it was due to my desire for that WICKED AWESOME FTP T-Shirt!
