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
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.
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!
