the golden age of kabuki
whenever people get together and the subject turns to kabuki (aand lets face it, kabuki as a topic of conversation has saved many a gathering), oft times there is pondering upon kabukis' Golden Age or period au, if you will. the early years - a kabuki driven by creativity itself. unable to be anything but kabuki. was that the best period? perhaps the blue period - kabuki struck down by unknown ailments, walking with a cane and self-medicating like crazy. many people prefer the later years - house-bouncing, car-selling, shopaholic with an eye towards cashmere and diamond-encrusted 18k gold. this period is the kabuki-against-the-world period, a certain ominious presence can be felt underneath much of the work of this time. Personally, speaking strictly for kabuki and myself (for sometimes we are two and sometimes we are one) the golden age of kabuki is ahead. many things to do, see, and make up wildly inappropriate stories about. knowing there is a tomorrow allows kabuki some glimmer of hope, a bright light in the distance. kinda like the one that always shines through the curtains directly into your eyes whenever you stay in a cheap hotel. research done by kabuki intimates that this is required by the shadow-government. kabuki would venture a guess that the shadow-government is comprised of people with no more sense the the people in the real government. what happened to the lizard overlords? they were supposed to be clever. although most of the iguanas i met are a bit lethargic. could the lizard overlords be behind global warming? are their scaly hands involved in last years stink-bug invasion. kabuki is still finding stinkbugs in the house. stuck my hand in my bathrobe pocket - et viola - a stinkbug. kabuki has a difficult time relaxing as it is, what with overlords and shadow governemnts. (hint: hush money would provide a change of topics) kabuki does not need to stop the chillaxing process to wash one's hands and lounge garments. perhaps it is all being orchestrated by the far left coast - in order to speed up my right coast departure. please know that kabuki is working day and nite, (up to 4 hours a day sometimes) to get over there. it is not kabuki's responsibility to save hollywood - both television and movies - from utter boredom. get johnny depp to remake some old french film. maybe matt damon could take a break from appearing in every movie made (shades of micheal caine), and pen another buddy-with-brains movie. what is jon voight up to? people of the west, kabuki cannot do it alone. (actually kabuki can do it alone - but kabuki refuses) do not let kabuki show up to find everyone just laying about. kabuki don't do siestas. but a glass of sangria sounds nice, and perhaps one of those warm pork salad sandwiches. until next time - my darlings - know that your are in my heart and my mind. so stop making so much noise when kabuki is tring to nap.
