JFOUND: Cavanagh, Donna (MC1983) founded Humor Outcasts

Website gives humorous home to ‘stepchild’ of publishing world

CATHERINE LAUGHLIN, FOR THE INQUIRER
POSTED: Wednesday, June 3, 2015, 3:01 AM

*** begin quote ***

Donna Cavanagh says the world is brimming with mockable material – like the sex toy designed for those grieving the loss of a partner. The glass device can be filled with ashes of your dead lover.

“I mean, come on. That story was like handing me gold,” Cavanagh, 53, of East Norriton, says of the essay she wrote about it.

Her writing finds a home on the website she founded four years ago, Humor Outcasts, where now more than 100 other humorists – cartoonists, novelists, stand-up comedians, and TV producers and writers, many well-known – contribute essays, memes, parodies, satires, and cringe comedy at a blush-under-R rating. A dozen or so posts run daily, collectively amassing 3,000 to 7,000 hits – with the occasional piece reaping viral traffic of 30,000 views or more for HumorOutcasts.com.

*** and ***

Cavanagh was born into a big Italian clan hailing from Manhattan’s Little Italy. Her family moved to Bergen County, N.J., where she attended the all-girl Academy of Holy Angels prep school run by the Sisters of Notre Dame. Her teachers said her writing was funny.

She met her future husband, Edward, a computer engineer at Manhattan College, where she took journalism courses but majored in business. Soon after college, they married and moved to Pennsylvania. She freelanced for a communications company and edited books. She then worked as a night reporter for the Times Herald in Montgomery County.

Her daughter Coleen, now 27, was a toddler. Sleep-deprived days and blistered feet from high heels stoked plenty of Cavanagh’s humor pieces that subsequently appeared in First magazine, More magazine, emerging mommy blogs, and in a neighboring paper, the Mercury. (Her essays appear in four books, including Life on the Off Ramp, a USA Book News National Best Books 2010 finalist.)

HumorOutcasts.com is THE place to take a humor break. Founded by Donna Cavanagh, it is the result of a brainstorming session between several humor writers who longed for a site where humor could thrive without fear of being censored as it was on many of the bigger internet blogging sites. On many occasions, Donna and other humorists felt like outcasts in the internet writing world watching their work get flagged or removed when editors felt uncomfortable with content.  With the technical help of her engineer husband, Donna was able to create HUMOROUTCASTS.com or HO a site that encourages writers  to push the envelope and spread their creative wings.  On HO, you will find humorists, stand-up comics, entertainers, cartoonists, TV writers/producers, screenwriters and some  writers of serious subject matter — all who believe in the power of laughter.  We hope you take your time and read the work of the writers here who cover a wide variety of topics.  The work posted ranges from G-rated material to material that might just make you blush.  There is something for everyone and there is fresh content daily.

James Priolo, P.E.Director of Technical Services

Jim Priolo is the director of technical services, responsible for ensuring technical excellence and code compliance throughout the company’s portfolio of projects. Mr. Priolo has over 35 years of design experience with all aspects of building mechanical systems in new and retrofit projects. His expertise includes the design and commissioning of building management system controls for complex HVAC systems installed in state-of-the-art acute care hospitals and universities. He has worked on a wide range of projects.

Recently, Mr. Priolo managed a project for the Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York that received an ARRA grant to upgrade its mechanical infrastructure including upgrading the building management system. The hospital, founded in 1930, has undertaken significant additions and renovations. Designing the BMS upgrade required his team to perform extensive field surveys to identify the existing conditions and develop strategies to ensure the new controls delivered energy savings. As a result, the necessary mechanical repairs were included in the project as well as detailed control drawings and sequences of operation. In order to meet the grant schedule requirements, the project was bid as two phases to meet its deadline. Mr. Priolo studied mechanical engineering and received a bachelor of engineering degree from Cooper Union and a mster of engineering degree from Manhattan College. He is a registered professional engineer in the state of New York.

JBLOGGER: Teare, Brad (MC1983) keeps a journal

207 The next best step

*** begin quote ***

I keep a journal. One of the advantages of a journal is tracking success regarding goals you have made. I’ve learned through the years that I’m not very good at accomplishing long lists of goals. My aim changes too quickly. I think it’s an artist’s prerogative to change direction as often and quickly as inspiration requires.

Hopefully that journal is backed up or online for posterity?

Brad Teare January 1, 2015 at 12:28 PM
Hi John. My journal is actually a series of physical books. It is fairly archival although I would lose it in a fire, of course. Maybe I should key it into an online depository but that would take a long time. But thanks for the idea. I made a special box to put them in (thirty volumes so far). I will add a photo to the blog.

ENDNOTE: Separation of Science and State!

2014-Dec-13

REPORTING LIVE FROM THE FACEBOOK NEWS DESK
IN THE VIRTUAL JASPER JOTTINGS NEWSROOM … 

Parriott, Don (MC1983) posted:

*** begin quote ***

As a trained scientist, and climate change “skeptic”, my main objection to the whole approach is that the liberals as Bible thumping morons who believe in fantasy. This is far from the truth, and there is legitimate scientific research that raises questions about climate change. Any real (read that objective) scientist would want to see all the evidence and make a decision based on all of the available data.

Many of the climate change advocates will not acknowledge the contrary evidence, and only choose the evidence that supports their personal opinion. This is not the scientific method.

Also, we “skeptics” are also skeptical because a vast majority of the research is done by government funded studies, but the government is only giving funding to studies that will support their preconceived notion of the truth.

*** end quote ***

So we should have the Separation of Science and State!

Not to put words in Jasper Parriott’s post, but …

The Federal Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient.

One example of “inefficient” is the one sided “studies”.

It’s as if there would be no way to fund progress except without The Glorious Leader. (Oh, that’s the wrong Gooferment!) … … no way to fund progress without the Giant Federal State.

Argh!

When with “We, The Sheeple” awake?

Never.

And how do we cut this “giant” down to size?

Laugh at it, ignore it, and secede from it.
