Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)
I’m writing this rather early, meaning before 9:00am Saturday morning. In fact, I’m starting this Post as I wait the other participants in the Wakefield Doctrine Friday Night Video Chat… which, as of the time of this writing, 7:30 pm, is more like the Wakefield Doctrine Friday Night Video Soliloquy. (lol)
(hey! new bloggers, ever think to yourselfs, ‘gee I think it would be a keen hobby to write a blog, but where the heck do you come up with ideas to write about?’ Well, as they say, ‘it’s raining soup’ when it come to ideas, they’re all over the frickin place. Just leave off the filters, avoid thinking about how good the idea/topic might actually be and just start writing. (I am a total follower of this advice…find something that is odd/cool/interesting/exciting/provocative/so-dumb-it-just-might-work and start writing. The real challenge is to ‘write your way out’ (of) wherever it is that you run out of words…. )
As Sy Sperling would say, (about this advice?) “I’m also a member!”). Just now, I realized that I need to do a Video TToT of my Wakefield Doctrine Friday… you get the idea…
(lights! camera…. action!!!)
3) book of secret rules
6) time travel…grammatically-speaking
7) I’m now writing from Saturday morning and tell you how it turned out (the above 6 items that were written last night before the Vid Chat got going)… it was the best that we’ve had, to date. My definition of ‘best’ is focused on the who and not the what of these chats. the usual suspects: zoe and Denise and Lizzi, of course, but we saw Starr come back and Tamara (from Hawaii) and, in a provocative vid noirs, beth appeared but had to leave all too soon. The picked up momentum when who do we see (in Charlie Weaver’s square) but Linda Roy (first visit…très cool ). The big surprise was Christine stopping, always a crowd favorite and having a little trouble with her audio, she did not disappoint. Just as she appeared, who shows up but Jak (and Kate!)… giving us a tour of Paisley Park (er… actually it was Target, but it was in Minnesota!) …and finally to close the evening (like a surprise guest on one of the old variety shows)… who but no other than Jen Kehl!!
8) so I am certainly grateful to everyone for bringing to life this totally cool medium
9) and Una and Phyllis for their patience and forbearance
10) Secret Rule 1.3 done!
be sure to join on the TToT Sunday Special!!
