Sunday Five - Uninhibited


The photo, I took in High School in the 1970's, I have no idea who it is.  I do hope that he is wild and crazy today, as he was then.

1: Have you ever taken a nude photograph? 

2: Do you sing Karaoke? 

3: What is the largest audience you have ever spoke to? 

4: Have you ever acted in a play? 

5: Would you do five minutes of stand up comedy for a large financial reward ? 

My answers: 

1: Have you ever taken a nude photograph? A long - long time ago, a friend of mine brought home a stripper, she didn't like wearing clothes. 

2: Do you sing Karaoke? Nope, never have, never will. 

3: What is the largest audience you have ever spoke to? In person, about 1,400, online, 3,650 one day this past year. 

4: Have you ever acted in a play? Not since elementary school. 

5: Would you do five minutes of stand up comedy for a large financial reward? I would agonize over it, and yes, I would. 

Please share your uninhibited answers in the comments.

  1. 1. Do selfies count?
    2. Not a chance. Unless there's lots of booze.
    3. I did address an opening session of Weight Watchers once. I kid.
    4. I had the lead in the school play in my junior year of high school.
    5. Sure. Although I can't guarantee that anyone would laugh.

  2. 1: Have you ever taken a nude photograph? Yes. Been in some and taken some. My friend also used me as a subject for his charcoal and pastel artwork nude.

    2: Do you sing Karaoke? Hell no, but have lip synched in drag shows.

    3: What is the largest audience you have ever spoke to? Never have spoke, unless you count speech class which would have been like 40 people.

    4: Have you ever acted in a play? Nope.

    5: Would you do five minutes of stand up comedy for a large financial reward ? Probably...but it would be dirty and snarky along the lines of insult comic Lisa Lampanelli.

  4. 1. Planet Earth is round, yes?
    2. No. I have a lousy singing voice.
    3. About 50 people at my 40th year work celebration. I am also a lousy public speaker.
    4. Just once. I was inside a paper mache egg with my head and limbs out of the egg. I hated it and I think I cried, or nearly did.
    5. We are all prostitutes in some form and I would try a comedy piece on stage.

  5. 1) Take as in behind the camera or in front of the camera?
    2) I'm with Mitchell on this one, never have never will.
    3) I guess somewhere around 300.
    4) Yes, professionally even, in a comedy written by a local playwright.
    5) Certainly! Heck, I did enough of that in my former job for much less money.

  6. 1: Have you ever taken a nude photograph? I'm the odd man out here. I never have.

    2: Do you sing Karaoke? I have, and I thought I was fantastic.

    3: What is the largest audience you have ever spoke to? About 600 in a civic auditorium. Scared the hell outta me.

    4: Have you ever acted in a play? In high school. I thought I was fantastic.

    5: Would you do five minutes of stand up comedy for a large financial reward ? I feel like I do five minutes of standup several times a day when I'm at work, and there's no financial reward, so, yeah, perhaps I would. I think I'd be fantastic.

    1. There might be something wrong with me, public speaking does not scare me.

  7. 1. I don't believe I have.
    2. No, I can't carry a tune
    3. Probably 50 to 60 people.
    4. Yes, many times. I studied theatre in school.
    5. Probably, but I'm not sure they'd still pay me after.

    1. I should take a theater course

  8. 1. I've taken them of my sons. They were babies and it was before the practice became creepy. I only get pictures of me in parts. I can't see where the strange textured skin is, so Balder takes the picture while I hold up obscuring parts.

    2.I have two sisters with Karaoke machines. I've tried, but I get shy even around them. I have a problem with people acting like they're singing for money. The fun of karaoke is the off key singing and having a good time.

    3. I don't speak to audiences directly. I've had to in high school and was petrified, but an inner Deedles always took over. So, about 25 or so.

    4. Acting, play? Hell no!

    5. Stand-up comedy- see #4.

    1. Public speaking, I am not shy about, public singing - I am shy about.

  10. 1: Have you ever taken a nude photograph? 

    Yes. No. Maybe. Shut up. What have you heard? That wasn’t me!

    2: Do you sing Karaoke? 

    Yes. After a few cocktails and MUCH to everyone’s displeasure. Favorite songs to sing: “Friends In Low Places,” and “You Ain’t Woman Enough To Take My Man.”

    3: What is the largest audience you have ever spoke to? 

    Hmmm. Probably a hundred or so?

    4: Have you ever acted in a play? 

    Many times. 3 times in high school and multiple times in. community theater as an adult but not in a looooooong time.

    5: Would you do five minutes of stand up comedy for a large financial reward ? 

    Of course. I’ve suffered greatly for my own gain many times in my life. And seems like easy money (as long as I’m allowed to bomb.)
