Congratulations! You have consciously chosen or stumbled upon the single most important theatre/underwater yodeling blog in the entirety of the galaxy.
In the future, I will endeavour to provide more information on the secrets of underwater yodeling, but as of this post, I admit to being somewhat lacking in that area, so you will have to be content with a more theatrical bias. Not that it will only be about theatre. Because who goes to the theatre?
This is my first blogging experiment/attempt in a very long time. I think the last time I did something like this it was on LiveJournal and everyone still used MSN Messenger. It was short lived. My hope is that this shall be slightly longer lived.
Aim for the Tangent (the company, not the website) is as much the product of my personal crusades as it is my business pursuits, and as such this blog shall reflect both the sub and ob-jective, in line with my ever escalating challenge of balancing the two. I am not always good at it, but I am so fortunate to be at the beginning of a career in an industry where the two are so often complimentary. I will attempt to avoid self-indulgence (a fear that has perhaps kept me from this medium of communication in the past), and I thank you in advance for indulging any of my many vices that may pop up from time to time. Largely in the form of puns. Also alliteration.
This company is in the early stages of what I hope will be a long and varied history. As such, in many ways I am still listening to hear what it wants to be. I am hoping that this website and blog will be one way of refining that definition and building what will be something somewhat resembling an Identity. More on that in future posts; sufficed to say I am very excited to be standing where I am at this point in my life. There is so much to explore and experience and create, and it is my hope to share with you a small piece of what that looks like from my perspective - with the hope that you will in turn share with me a little piece from your perspective.
Feel free to contribute and start discussions in the comments - I would love for this blog to become a place of discourse, revelry, and respectful, intellectual knife fights. Tell stories, agree or disagree, go for the jugular: Just please be respectful. As I'm sure anyone cool enough to find this website would innately be. Community is perhaps the single most compelling reason I embarked on this particular journey in life and I would love to think this website was helping to build that, drawing us together in cyberspace even as we isolate ourselves behind our smart phones.
Expect more updates soon. As busy as things are, I expect to be enamoured with my new toy for some time to come. Lots of exciting things on the horizon: from productions to contests to new friends, and perhaps a brave new chapter.
Thank you for being here.
