The Infamous MNF (ABC) Owens-Sheridan Skit

Here is a blog noting it and it has a link to the cached video.

Being a dirty old man I of course watched it. It is pretty innocent really. Actually the part I liked the most surprises me. When she drops the towel she clearly blushes.

I thought that was interesting. Most people can't blush on cue. Being an actress maybe she can. However it lent the whole thing a kind of ... plausibility that the previous rather canned dialogue left me cold about.

I'm sure if it was involuntary it was just the embaressment of disrobing. There is nothing really sexy about shooting nude scenes. However I strangely found the blush and it was rather obvious kind of touching.

I wonder if they used CGI to insert it or if it was coached or of it was real. Whatever it was it was a good move, a nice touch.

Most people are obsessed about getting ahead or being famous or proving that they're better than others. What I am really interested in is people's emotions and how to tell whether they're real or not and what they mean. That is the great fronteir which I do not understand well.

That and how to get a job based on that kind of emotional empathy and networking. Resume grind sure. Credentialize great. But not this kind of "being who you really are" or "build it and they will come" stuff. That's what I've been trying to get in touch with these last several years. I figure if I can do that, then I'll be as normal as I can ever become insofar as being like other people.

I don't hold much hope that most emotional responses are any less calculated or predictable than expressions of human will. In this respect I consider myself more cynical.

You can't fake a blush, this is true. But it is hard to tell those emotional actions from signs of real compassion and grace. It's a spiritual quest for sure, and these have their own trajectories that it helps to recognize and follow.

As someone who has no physiological correlate to shame or guilt you should understand that the mechanism itself is precious to me even questioning its sincerity. After I do something that even I think is terrible, I sleep quite well. The only thing preventing me from going and becoming an anti-social sociopath is essentially a light preference for positive situations and my dedication toward keeping my agreements.

I would put aside philosophical considerations of love, if I could really just genuinely feel it for someone and have them feel it for me.

As for your cyncism, most of the time you are correct. This is why for 99% of social interactions being a heartless calculating social mimic is quite successful. It's that 1% of authenticity that I'm interested in.

One place to learn about people's emotions and learn how to read them is working in a bar, which, by the way I DO NOT RECOMEND working or owning!!!

Quite often, at the right instance, people mean what they feel at the moment, but the next day/hour indicate something compleatly different.

I've found I can feel whatever I want, quite sincerely, whenever it doesn't feel just too utterly stupid doing it. And it's always an open question whether other people mean it or they're faking it, unless they give the consistent impression over a long time that they have simple minds and don't know how to fake it. But is the difference really that important? If they fake it now they at least act the part. And if they aren't faking now they're still likely to change their minds in an hour or a week or whatever.

So it's pleasant to feel it myself, and that's the central thing. I enjoy feeling love for other people, and it doesn't keep me from proactively defending myself from them. It doesn't really metter whether they love me back.
