I can't for the life of me remember what I was doing, or if it was a dream or not, but I had this vague recent memory of going up some stairs, looking into an oddly disheveled room and having the song 'Cabin in the Woods' pop in my head.

It's still there..

Saw the Rocky Horror Show for the first time tonight. I like it. I really really like it. It cuts out all the boring parts of the movie and makes it waaayyyy funnier when the actors have to say their lines following an AP line. Like when someone called out 'who farted?' right before the end of Eddie's Teddy. Dr Scott instead pointed at Columbia and said 'she did.' But still, Hilarious.

The singing left something to be desired, but Frank was so much more flamboyant and fabulous. Maybe a bit too lispy, but still.

So so good.

Went to the Animal Welfare League today, to see if maybe Jack turned up there. Nope. I started to get teary. Looking at all those poor cats stuck in cages, meowing for love.

Though, I could never work/volunteer there, the smell is just awful.



Come back home, Jack.

In the vein of anal Rocky costumes, I believe the person who wrote this article on making Sgt Pepper's costumes should be taken out back and shot.

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2163089/how_to_create_the_perfect_sgt_pepper.html

This is apparently what this person is telling people to make:

Kind looks more like Star Trek Rock Band.

And a quick peek at what the actual costumes look like:

Hopefully I'll sleep like a baby tonight, if I'm not coughing all night long.

Today was fun and not all that long, considering it was for the film/tv industry. However, I fail with that PA only because Chicago fails with the hookups. I've searched and called and apparently you cannot buy gaffer tape after 5pm out here. LAME. I didn't bother looking up gels, since 1/3 of the places I searched were the lighting equipment places and they, too, close at 5:30pm at the latest.

I *could* buy something in between shoots tomorrow, but I can't find a place in the suburbs (or really anywhere outside of the downtown area) that sells the stuff.

Also, need GPS/new phone with GPS. I only found out today that there are Avenue Letter street in chicago. We shot at Avenue M today. Sadly, there is no Avenue Q.

Oh the irony.
I have a bloody nose, which I'm trying to stop before I leave to go to the Haunted House.
1:46 am
Looks like I'm opting to take a shower and wash the fake blood out of my hair, instead of finding out what it might do to my pillow case.

BTW, I *love* working in the Haunted House. If I can figure out a good way to cut circles out of black nylon, I'm totally going to try and rock Casey's eye things this week. And on that note, would it be terribly uncouth to wear a typical nurse's outfit with said eye things? I tend to work the Asylum part of the Haunted House, and tonight was my first time playing (sort of) the role of a innocent bystander/victim, instead of a crazy person, and I plan on reprising the role tomorrow, with regular makeup and some blood. But still wonder about the nurse's outfit part.

And holy crap, I'm literally shaking/freezing shaking. Gotta go shower and warm up.

I'm ready for the Notre Dame show tomorrow!
I literally had three inches of sequin strand left when I finished. Thank god I had enough.


(I was really worried how the hot glue process would go, but thankfully, no burnt fingers)

Now I just gotta see if I can find all the pieces for my Trixie idea.

 So, when I can't play WoW (man... Columbus, Oh and I would be the perfect couple..but I digress), when I can't play WoW, I have been trying to read.  I live on the other side of the block from a library so I have ample choices.  However, the last batch of stuff I've gotten is all Fail.  I suffered through two vampire books.  I do not love the vampire culture as many friends of mine do and have for many many gamer years.  I read some of Charlaine Harris' stuff before it blew up, because I thought her ideas were good, but her writing was terrible.  'Vamped' and 'You Suck' are a couple more to add to the list of blah.  Though Vamped has a more interesting social commentary about how it doesn't seem to matter what major changes happen, people are still going to revert to not really living or being afraid to really live, and in my mind this also includes the bliss that comes with aging once we stop worrying about being young and beautiful.

I picked up Geek Love, thinking good things.  I suffered through the first page, jumped to the second chapter, then hated myself for not being able to read through it to see if maybe it was just slow to start.  Same with Wicked.  I heard good things about it, but first chapter alone and I'd be ok with never reading it.

Luckily I have two Vonnegut books I've never even heard of, which will carry me for the next few days.  Then, I'm in trouble.  I really want more to read, but I've hit a weird fussy bump in the road.  I can't be appeased and whatever I'm reading needs to try harder to satisfy or sell me.

blarg.

 While it's really awesome that a Swing Club twitter added me and informs me of all the Charleston and Jitterbug and what have you events going on, it really does me no good when this all takes place in Tampa, Florida.

 There was a crafting post from months ago that went up.  I managed to make maybe two things for people that I was supposed to make.  I am determined to still make them.

I can't remember who else was on the list, but I know Rebecca and Mikey were.  
I'm currently obsessed with making socks.  And that's probably was you're going to get.  If this is cool, I need feet measurements.  =D

 The beginning started probably on a Rocky night.  I know Shawn and Larry were there, and we were going to have a house party at someone's house.  Lots of random people were there, including Dan (my ex from HS who just got married last Halloween).  Lots of boys in drag.  There was even a Dan-look-a-like in drag, who was more like Nathan from HMM.  We fake got married and I gave him clip on earrings.

rest of the dreamCollapse )

 I'll be honest, at this point in time, it feels like my life has been leading up to RB: Beatles.  

I can't think of anything remotely comparable in the magnitude of magical.

Halloween
It's September, and I hadn't had a Halloween costume idea, which is weird, cause normally I have one planned out already and I'm working on it.

So.. here's the plan.  I absolutely LOVE doing group costumes.  And I was already thinking about doing Adventures in Babysitting, though partly because I think Emily would make an awesome Sarah (the little girl.)  But I'm also thinking of doing like, Cry-Baby.  I think Karly is definitely a shoe-in for Wanda.

But with either costume comes the issue of getting people together.  Mikey is a great guy for these, cause he digs dressing up and putting together costumes as much as I do, but since our break up, he's gone back to his old friends for group costumes.  And petty as it may be, I have no interest in joining them, but also cause they stole my Breakfast Club idea for last year.  Big BOO.

I'm still trying to think of some sort of solo costume idea.  I mean, another group costume I'd love to do is Twin Peaks, but they definitely requires some interested people.  

I think part of my problem is that I used up my last few ideas at Rocky cons.  =P

hot
 While reading the wiki of Cry-Baby, to figure out who sang in one of the songs, as Rachel Sweet isn't listed for Sandman, I discovered that Sins shadowcasted it.  Hot.  I want to see photos.

EDIT: Found some photos.  Liz Stockton looks flippin awesome.

Win!
Tonight's rehearsal made up for today entirely.  I probably feel amazing everytime I leave rehearsal, even though I tend to dread going all the time.

Brandon, the recast for one of the brother's (Odd Couple, female version) is hilarious!  He's so magically funny I can't even describe.  He alone is making the scenes with the brothers.  Even though Nick is pretty into it as well.

I feel like the show is funny again.  I'm interested in it again.  I like it again.  Hopefully I can hold on to this feeling until we get the shows out, cause I am really jonesin' to get started on the next show.

Though, it is weird talking to the girls now that my romantic life is completely dead.  I can't even think of anyone I find attractive, that isn't Brian (who had a gf and is definitely not an option) or Ryan (who lives in Indiana and I haven't seen since he moved back there/even really talked to.)  Jaimey insists I need to find a new dude and move on, but honestly, no one does it for me.  Chuck Berry says i need to find myself a brown eyed handsome man, and the two I found are both unavailable.  *pout*

FAIL
 My brother just got home, he's on his break between classes, that lasts til 5:30ish.  He comes up to talk with me and complains that our mother never got around to washing any of *his* clothes yesterday.

....

When I tell him that there is in fact a washer and dryer downstairs, he just replies that he's lazy.

*boggle*

 Big, the musical.  Really?  Did Broadway run out of ideas back in the 80s?

Obviously nothing is official, but when my director came up to me tonight, he says, "Not that you'll be in the next show and not that you'll audition, but would you be comfortable performing in your underwear?"

Now I need to read Rona Munro's Bold Girls
so I can figure out just what part I'm not playing next show. *wink*

Current Mood: giddy
