I AM FOCUSING ON COMEDY MORE THAN ACTING WHICH MEANS I NOW CONSIDER MYSELF MORE OF A COMEDIAN. I apologize for all of the caps. I wasn’t really yelling. Okay, check out my new website & new podcast! Things are starting to get good. I love you. 😀
Get off of your low horse,
get off of your mule,
your miniature pony,
and get back on your high horse.
Feed it, be nice to it, but just stop riding it;
because it just can’t handle it.
You don’t know how to build something from wood?
So what? Neither do I.
But it can be learned.
However, you can articulate and read and philosophize.
You can understand morals, emotions, concepts, principles, social and psychological issues;
you can teach, draw, rhyme, create, and make people laugh and make people think.
If you think they play no role in humanity, you’re wrong.
They play a huge role.
If you think that they’re nothing special among people
and we all should just build roads and forget about all of the other aspects to life;
Just remember that these are different kinds of roads;
That are necessary and special in their own way because not everyone can build them.
Those who can, are known as teachers, speakers, writers, singers, and artists.
They help people see the light, give new insight, change view points,
and teach things that otherwise would have gone unknown to others.
Critical thinkers keep mankind moving forward;
They keep gray in a world that would otherwise be black and white.
and you say this mindset isn’t critical.
It is more than critical; it’s vital for survival.
That’s how our minds have survived evolution.
So, you can choose to feel inferior all you want.
Just know, it’s not a good choice.
Get off your low horse.

Survivor’s Ink Party
July 7, 2012
It was a great weekend to perform in Emerson, IA, on July 7th. The weather was beautiful as people filled in at the Survivor’s Ink Client Appreciation Party. There was a wide variety of musical genres being performed on each of the two stages, from rap artists to rock bands to acoustic solo artists.
Along with the musical performers was the Andy Hartley Show!
A special thanks to everyone who came out to support and enjoy the performers & thank you to the performers themselves, including Survivor’s Ink, for putting on this spectacular event!
