Ezra Ace Caraeff: Welcome to the Discomfort Zone

meh... that's the best you could do? snore-fest 2011.

See, none of these are going to produce actual discomfort because it seems they all include alcohol.
3
These are not uncomfortable enough.

How about Ezra has to perform something at the poetry slam?
4
How about Ezra has to memorize and perform a George Lopez routine at the poetry slam?
5
Agreed, there is not nearly enough potential for suffering. I would love to read about Ezra (or anyone) having to perform poetry, but not about having to endure it.
6
These all kinda suck. If he had to perform poetry that would be better but still not really cringe inducing.
7
No, these are great. The Tall Club is particularly great, as it forces ezra into an environment where strangers feel totally encouraged to just strike up conversations with him. Top-tier discomfort zone.

@pffft

What are you talking about? He just has to sit in a room and listen to a bad comedian or some bad poets and suck down vodka. The Tall Club is something anyone who isn't completely socially retarded could get through without batting an eye. We're talking about a guy who has to talk to mildly famous to insanely famous people he's never met on a day to day basis. Do you honestly think he's completely socially retarded?

The tall club is totally the kind of thing where the next day he writes a "WOW EVERYBODY WAS REALLY NICE!" post. I am sick of those, and will not tolerate another.

@BlackedOut I volunteer to abstain from booze at all of these events if it helps things (for you guys, not me).

@ezra

I still think you're getting off light. I mean wow...this looks truly awful doesn't it?

I think we have agreement - we need another option. Something like "None of the above. Postpone the discomfort."
13
@BlackedOut OH MY GOD, SO MUCH PIZZA!
14
Jesus, people. These suck. You've forced me to do some research cuz like Joneser, I'm tired of the pleasant recaps.

TRANSFIGURATION CEREMONY

fourth Sunday of the month

This is an open circle

Please contact for location/directions

There will be a brief teaching before we begin for first timers. During the practice of transfiguration, you allow your body and thoughts to dissolve until you are just spiritual light. From this place of radiance, healing with spiritual light for self and others is amplified as the group transfigures as one.

Please bring a small 4 oz jar of water or a small sealed bag of soil to put on the altar. The water and soil will be transfigured. I will explain more as we prepare for the ceremony.

May this season continue to fill you with delight as the sap rises, blossoms open, and seeds are planted during this time of transformation.

This might be in Eugene. That's definitely not too far to go, right?

Also this: http://www.witchvox.com/vn/vn_detail/dt_ev…
"Four days and three nights of camping, concerts, workshops, group rituals, magickal ceremonies, drum circles, guitar jams, kid's activities, friends, food, and fun."


Make him stay overnight!

We should boycott voting on this one because the options are all so lame.
16
Really. TRY HARDER YOU GUYS.
17
Option #4: Ezra does a public reading of all the posts on MOD

18
The Skyline Club, with the caveat that he wear a top hat and platform shoes to the meeting.
19
Breaking News:The tall people hate Ezra. He received hatemail from them back in 2008 after his blog post!
20
Bully slam poetry kids? Might as well shoot fish in a barrel ensconced on the backporch of Harriet Tubman where frizzy-haired freed men once sang somber songs now malevolently muted by our corporate Boba Fet overlord MEDIA WHORE MASTERS.
21
Can't we just lock him in the restroom at Mercury HQ for the weekend? He'll get some rest, have plenty of access to water, no access to booze...consider it free rehab.
22
No wait! Ezra should do 10 minutes of stand-up. This will allow us to get drunk and heckle him.
