Support Local Artists/Friends


Hey all-

Not sure how or why you got to this web-site, but I’m glad you’re here. Likely it’s from ComedyCity, or the Green Room, or Cardboard Theatre, or you know me personally. Me…. Mike Eserkaln. Anyway, the times they are a troubling, but you knew that. My business relies on groups of people to show up in person… You know, the thing that we’ve all been told not to do. So, it’s going to be a difficult time for many of us financially. If you like the things I do, or just like me… or heck, you hate me but still want to support art, please drop me a dime or a couple bucks.

Love and Thanks.

Hug Blog Day #7 : I’m a bad scientist

Spent the day with my kid, so got in those bonus family hugs. Got one of her friends in on the project too. Kid hugs are good. Side note: don’t hug a kid if you don’t know them. I haven’t done this, but I feel it’s something that should be said. That’s why “high-fives” were invented.

Swung by the club to check in on things there. Got hugs from Allyson, CJ and Jacob.

Just one blog post back I had noted that I found it odd that other people weren’t hugging each other any more than they normally would. I kinda thought the idea would spread. Then I decided that I wasn’t going to bring it up and just keep observing. Well, it turns out I’m not the best of scientists when it comes to not interfering with the test results. I told them all it was odd they weren’t hugging too. Hugs all around. Everyone seemed happy with it.

Lesson (besides that I’m not a great scientist.) If happiness isn’t spreading by itself, sometimes it needs a shove.

Hug someone today.
