Hey guys.

Local people: where would be the best place to go to go get headshots done?

Should I wait to get them or just get them done now and get it out of the way?

anyone have paula's office number? or know if she'd still be around, she was supposed to call me but didn't, so I guess I have to call her now, but I don't have her number. Thanks!

would anyone be willing to let me borrow their urinetown soundtrack? just so i could put in on my computer.



[02 Apr 2005|05:48pm]

for those of you that are interested....

we're throwing a surprise baby shower for Claudia in J Studio at 6 o clock (after sophmore voice and movement) on Monday, April 11th. Bring your own gift if you like, but it's not required. If you so desire, kick in a couple of bucks towards a cake and card to me (jill), kristen casey, or mel banks -- whoever you see most frequently.

and keep it on the DL!

SEX TOY PARTY UPDATE! [07 Mar 2005|05:37pm]

[ mood | happy ]

ok ladies, so here's the deal.

I got comments with replies, gracias. I also got some facebook replies, for those that got my email.

The party is is MONDAY march 28th "starting" at 8:30, but we are going to wait til 9 to really start...we all know you guys need a grace period to get places, you're not alone- I am the queen of fashionably way late.

I know some people, not me obviously, get a little squeamish about the world of vaginas, but if you're feeling that way- I have to tell you, this company is about way more than that. They have TONS of beauty spa products (ask me or erin olson about them, I have tons already), and everything is shown to you in a very docile yet fun way.

It's going to be held in the Main Social Room of my apartment complex. To get there from campus, take 138 to the rt1 intersection (where the mobil is) make a RIGHT onto Rt 1. Follow that down 2 lights ( I think), and you'll see SOUTH COUNTY COMMONS on your right. PS- This is also where a movie theatre and Applebee's is, so don't get confused. Make a right into there, make a right at Applebees, and then go straight and there is a pretty building right in front of you. To the left of the main door there is a side door that I will prop open. Go in there!

If you could bring a snack or soda item, that would rock. and BYOB if you so choose...and SINCE I WILL FINALLY BE 21 THE WEEKEND BEFORE! I will gladly take your money and go get you some. Speaking of money- bring your checkbooks, cash, or credit card if you want to place an order (which you totally should, they have great stuff)

I'm wearing my pajamas to this- since we are talking about bedroom fun here, so feel free to wear yours too.

anymore questions? comment here or IM me at "My Aim is Truest"

Theatre Terms [21 Feb 2005|07:19pm]

Eternity - The time that passes between a dropped cue and the next line.

Prop - A hand-carried object small enough to be lost 30 seconds before it is needed on stage.

Blocking - The art of moving actors on the stage in such a manor as not to collide with the walls, the furniture, the orchestra pit, or each other. Similar to playing chess, except that the pawns want to argue with you.

Blocking Rehearsal - A rehearsal taking place early in the production schedule where actors frantically write down movements which will be nowhere in evidence by opening night.

Lighting Director - Individual who, from the only vantage point offering a full view of the stage, gives the stage manager a heart attack by announcing a play-by-play of everything that's going wrong.

The Forebrain - The part of an actors brain which contains lines, blocking and characterization; activated by hot lights.

The Hindbrain - The part of an actors brain that keeps up a running subtext in the background while the forebrain is trying to act; the hindbrain supplies a constant stream of unwanted information, such as who is sitting in the second row tonight, a notation to seriously maim the crew member who thought it would be funny to put real Tabasco sauce in the fake Bloody Mary’s, or the fact that you need to do laundry Sunday.

Dress Rehearsal - Rehearsal that becomes a whole new ball game as actors attempt to maneuver among the 49 objects and ideas that the director added at 7:30 that evening.

Set - An obstacle course, which, throughout the rehearsal period, defies the laws of physics by growing smaller week by week while continuing to occupy the same amount of space.

Stage Crew - Group of individuals who spend their evenings coping with 50 minute stretches of total boredom interspersed with 30 second bursts of mindless panic.

Message Play - Any play which its director describes as "worthwhile", "A challenge to actors and audience alike", or "designed to make the audience think". Critics will be impressed both by the daring material and the roomy accommodations, since they're likely to have the house all to themselves.

Bedroom Farce - Any play which requires various states of undress on stage and whose set sports a lot of doors. The lukewarm reviews, all of which feature the phrase "Typical community theatre fare" in the opening paragraph, are followed paradoxically by a frantic attempt to schedule more performances to accommodate the overflow of crowds.

Set Piece - Any large piece of furniture which actors will resolutely use as a safety shield between themselves and the audience, in an apparent attempt to both anchor themselves to the floor, thereby avoiding floating off into space, and to keep the audience from seeing that they actually have legs.

Dark Night - The night before opening night when no rehearsal is scheduled so the actors and crew can go home and get some well-deserved rest, and instead spend the night staring sleeplessly at the ceiling because they're sure they needed one more rehearsal.

Green Room - Room shared by nervous actors waiting to go onstage and the precocious children whose actor parents couldn't get a baby-sitter that night, a situation which can result in justifiable homicide.

Actors (As defined by set designer) - People who stand between the audience and the set designer's art, blocking the view. That's also the origin of the word "blocking" by the way.

i just saw "sideways" tonight (which i totally recommend, by the way -- there is some quality acting and writing in it), and i had a totally inappropriate giggling fit because, in one scene in which the two main characters are sitting in a motel room, the television in the background is playing tom's "i'll be there" speech from grapes. honest to goodness.
