"Left-hand side"

"Right-hand side"

Why do people say “hand” when they’re indicating left or right?

Yesterday a woman said “North-hand side” to me.

Mr. Rogers And Me, by Brandon Schaaf

As some of you may know, my fiancée Megan did a really cool thing last week. Inspired by Mr. Fred Rogers, she lived each day according to his daily routine. She woke up at 5:15am to study and exercise, went without coffee and alcohol, napped regularly, etc. And she blogged about it at mrrogersandme.tumblr.com!

It was fun to watch and sometimes participate in her project! One of those mornings last week, I had the idea to adopt my own Mr. Rogers project in response to hers. Today, I’m happy to share it with you!

Here are 5 songs originally by Mr. Fred Rogers, performed and recorded by yours truly! If you’re interested in downloading it, consider donating some cash. It’ll all go straight to PBS!

Outlining the Mr. Rogers Routine

mrrogersandme:

For a week (at least) starting Monday, January 20th, 2014 I will be attempting to follow the daily routine of Frederick “Fred” McFeely Rogers, commonly known as Mr. Rogers, as closely as I can.

Mr. Rogers was the kind of human who inspires you to be the very best version of yourself. I want to…

My girlfriend’s living according to Mr. Rogers’ daily routine for one week!

Did you survive Indianapolis’ Snowpocalypse 2014? Want to see how “normal” you were over those several snowy days? Want some cold, hard statistics? Visit this website! My scientist fiancee and I made you seven visual aids with which to learn about your fellow survivors.

This took me a very long time. I earned my amusement!


Know No Stranger Press Release 10/7/13
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEKnow No Stranger enlist stage manager Wallace Wimbley for Optical Popsicle 5INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Local artist group Know No Stranger have inked a deal with veteran theater production manager Wallace W. Wimbley to spearhead their annual variety show Optical Popsicle, premiering October 18 at the city’s Athenaeum Theater.“As a rule I don’t allow myself to be thrilled often – doctor’s orders. But I make an exception for Optical Popsicle,” says Wimbley, now in his fifty-fourth year in show business. The diminutive stage manager, fresh off a job overseeing the Johnson County Humane Society’s all-cats cast of Cats, enters the KNS fold just in time for the annual extravaganza’s fifth anniversary.The addition of Wimbley may be a clue as to the scope of this year’s Optical Popsicle (sub-dubbed “Hi-Five Live”). For weeks rumors have swirled about a secret, surprise celebrity guest star sharing the stage with mainstay KNSers this year.Wimbley declined to comment but admitted the show is a considerable undertaking. “Please stop asking,” says the local theater expert. “I don’t mean to be rude, but if I think about it too much my blood pressure just skyrockets.”A self-proclaimed admirer of Know No Stranger’s past works, Wimbley maintains “apprehensive optimism” that the show will be a success and asserts he will do his utmost to usher in the finest Op Pop yet.“I’ll certainly try,” he says. “I always try. Sometimes it doesn’t work out, but that’s life. Sometimes you’re a star, and sometimes you’re the guy backstage with a clipboard, breathing into a paper bag. Do you hear that ringing? I hear a ringing. How do you not hear that?”After the show October 18, Wimbley plans to finish his script for a reboot of Death of a Salesman.“Arthur Miller’s all right,” he says, “but he sugarcoats a little much for my taste.”
