Who Am I? Who Are You?

I’ve blogged about introspection before. I take a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. I’m an optimist; I find a way to make things look good. My glass is always half-full. But who am I?


The unintended genius of that question was asked brilliantly in the movie Anger Management… and I must give credit where it’s due. @JohnSupernova brought this subject up before me, but it resonates… he knows from our early discussions that I, as does he, stake a lot of importance on introspection. And he knows, as I do, that inquiring of someone “I just want to know who you are” is one of the most difficult questions to answer. Your average person won’t answer that properly. Your most consciously aware probably wouldn’t be able to answer that properly. I’ve struggled to answer that properly, but I believe I’ve got the answer, finally.

Who I am? I am. I am Sean Bishop.

I know that sounds like a smartass comment, but it goes deeper than that. Sean Bishop is who I am. I am all that encompasses Sean Bishop. Delve into my blog a little bit, and you’ll see clearly precisely who I am.

I’m good with words. I’m most comfortable in my life when I’m reading and/or writing. I’m positive I was born several centuries too late for my professional interests, and a couple decades too soon for my progressive style of writing. We’re on the cusp of being allowed to do exactly what I want to do with writing, but it’s too soon for me to unleash the style I’m most interested in exploring. But that doesn’t mean I won’t flirt with the other side of this invisible line placed before me.

I’m one of those people who want to change the world, but my strengths aren’t in anything other than words. The aforementioned @JohnSupernova told me recently that I’d be a “net preacher” and he’s 100% correct. But sometimes, a voice is needed in order to inspire those who can actually take the ideas from paper (or monitor in this case) and build the wheel to set the scheme in motion.

I’m not the kind of person best suited to build a library, but I’m the kind of person who can draw the design and fill that library with script. I’m good with words, and I love using them. I’m good with tools, but I know I’m not the best suited to use them. While I try to figure out the next steps on Don’t Laugh, People and in my life, I want my words to carry with them the power to inspire people, to promote working together for the good of humanity, not separatism.

So who am I? I’m Sean Bishop. If you want to know who I am in a more natural element, pay me a visit @Sean_Bishop. My goal is to advance my blog, which relies not only on me, but on my ability to relate to you. So I just want to know who you are…

Windows Live Messenger Officially Converted to Skype

Messenger has moved to Skype

Messenger was retired in April 2013 and is no longer available or supported on most Mac and Windows operating systems. *

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

Marvel and Sony Reach Agreement For Spiderman

A quick glimpse into our archive would reveal we here at Don't Laugh, People are fans of comic books and their respective movies. I do not often divulge into a battle of DC vs. Marvel vs. the others, because I typically enjoy plenty from all (but yes, I do think Marvel is the best for art and for stories). However, "the last 24 hours have been really exciting."* Kudos to you if you didn't need to look up that quote... damn you if you did. *Dr. Okun - Independence Day

It was announced by many sources late last night/early this morning, that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures had finally reached an agreement for their partnership in order to introduce Spiderman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (where The Avengers live). Marvel will reportedly allow Sony to retain Spiderman's rights to let Amy Pascal produce films in the title, but she will be aided by Marvel's top man, Kevin Feige, in her endeavors. Feige will be involved in Spiderman's 2017 standalone fil…
