Taming the Mighty Tinnitey Comedy Video Cooperation and Idea Evaluation

I wanted to ask you about possibly the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever done. In attempting to bring a bit of comedy into the tinnitus drama, I created this video called “The Mighty Tinnitey.” It’s here:

But before you even press play (if you haven’t already), it’s been up for a while and has gotten all of 21 hits, and just maybe, deservedly so. It really is totally ridiculous. I don’t even know why I put it out there.

Except that when I just watched it before writing this to you, it made me laugh. Now it’s me making myself laugh and I have no idea if my sense of humor even relates to yours or even comes anywhere close to “normal.” For example, I really like the movie “Galaxy Quest.” Does that make me crazy, goofy, dumb, silly…?

Anyway I had this totally crazy idea, and that is to create a short video together as a community.

The name would be something like: Tinnitus: Tamin’ the Mighty Tinnitey

It would be a cartoon or something like that in which the Mighty Tinnitey gets tamed by taking “him” out of fight or flight and into well-being.

There would be a really loud constant ring that moves into silence over the course of the video.

It would be like a symbol of what we are doing at CureTinnitus.org, and I can do at least some of the voices if not all of them. But I seriously can’t draw. I guess I could use my hands and make some kind of hand-puppet episode, but would that be cool or funny or just plain stupid?

The idea is to tame the “Mighty Tinnitey” with a funny short cartoon/video that we created together as a community.

The opening could feature a second or two of the Tinnitus Characteristics we’ve learned about:

High powered life
Success
driven
idealistic

then the overachiever turns into the Mighty Tinnitey

Or this amorphous blob energy thing slams down into the person and rages out of his/her ears and the person gets “T.”

We then show the main components of what we are learning at CureTinnitus.org. Lifestyle, Therapy, Body Work, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, Physical levels, Having a Support Network to Let Go into, etc.

…and we tame the Mighty Tinnitey…all in a short funny video.

Honestly,

a) would that be cool?
b) can you help out, because I basically don’t have the skills to do this
c) would it be funny or worth it?

OK…wanted to get that out to you!

Best,
Dainis

CureTinnitus.org Tinnitus Tip: Inevitability

Sometimes it’s not enough to have goals that seem out of reach. Sometimes it helps to just map out where you are now on the left side of a sheet of paper, and put where you want to be on the right side.

In the middle, write, draw, for goodness sakes SCRATCH in what helps move you towards your gaol, and what moves you away from it.

Can anyone promise you’ll achieve your goals? No, but for me, when I started ensuring that at least I considered my plans, my steps, my actions, and my choices to be in line with making my goals, needs, and desires INEVITABLE — well that’s really when things started coming together for me.

And maybe that can happen for you too…
