Midnight Movies at the CoolidgeAt lunch today, we were talking about hating people and getting angry and so on. I don't understand this redirecting energy thing. If i'm angry about something, my energy is focused on that. I usually have to write up a thorough rant before the energy really dissipates, and until i get it out of my system i have difficulty focusing on anything except what i'm angry about. (When i get really upset about something, it's consuming. We're not talking just annoyed here, but the kind of anger that gets talked about as a driving force.) Anger is not a transitive property. For me anyway. I'm curious as to how other people operate, though. Hence, poll. (And by "nonfunctional" i don't necessarily mean catatonic, but have in mind more my personal experience of being consumed by it such that it's difficult to focus on anything else.)
Buffy The Vampire Slayer Sing-A-Long
Fri May 27
The return of our one-of-a-kind Sing-A-Long production of everyone's favorite monster-fighting cult TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer! We'll give you "Something to Sing About" at this special screening of Joss Whedon's classic musical episode, including goodie bags full of interactive activities (and plastic vampire teeth, of course), subtitles so you can sing-a-long with Buffy and the gang, our ringleader cast from Queer Soup (creators of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's High School Reunion") who will guide you through the night... and bunnies! Ahhhhh!
After the singing, stick around for an ultra-rare screening of the original Buffy pilot episode, featuring a totally different Willow and vampires that turn into chalk! Buffy parties like this are popping up all over the country, but it originated here at the Coolidge in a stunning sell out show last year. Don't miss out on the fun!
When you're really angry about something, you... [check all that apply]
use that energy for something relating to the object of your anger
redirect that energy
do something to dissipate the energy
are nonfunctional until the anger dissipates
