Why GiggleShots Are Leaving Social Media Platforms
At first, I was kinda pissed, but I realized, as my wife says, everything happens for a reason. If I was being honest, the social thing was extremely limiting (which is why I stopped the Friday Funny) and really not the right vessel to produce my comedy the way I want. I was settling. And, you know what, fuck that. I mean, the GiggleShots may just be alcohol-induced dad jokes, but they deserve more than me trying to deliver a joke while making a connection with you guys in 60 seconds or less. The more I thought about it, the more I came to understand that I need more control (it’s my inner dominatrix). I need something better. And, well, fuck Mark Zuckerburg and his bullshit limitations and restrictions. If I want to show my front-facing nipple while delivering a GiggleShot, god damn it who is he to deny me that?
That’s when the wheels in my head began to turn. No not about nipples, but what I could do with GiggleShots, skits, and even Under The Influence if I had full control. No restrictions, full-frontal, ear ball assaulting control.
I came up with a plan to create a second podcast that would deliver a GiggleShot every Monday through Friday. However, the more I thought about that, and how that would affect my other projects, I decided to put all the comedy stuff on hold and focus on the A Walk In Darkness Universe (which has a new podcast in development called “Those Dark Places“), the Sounds On Vinyl Podcast, and BoozeHound Music.
I know many of you have enjoyed the GiggleShots every Friday and those daring enough to listen, the Under The Influence podcast too. But, I have a rule that anything I do has to be a “Hell Yes!”, and right now, those two things didn’t make the cut. That said, I have probably over 60 GiggleShots written, and I may, from time to time, release those as a post. It won’t be a regular thing but follow and you’ll get notified every time I post.
And before I close, I want to thank each and every one of you motherfuckers for your support.
Until next time, LATER!
