So today was my third day of my 766th semester at Uni. I do have a plan to get out of here, though. Three main semesters left. I'm coming down the home stretch.

My Anthropology professor is faaaaaaaaantastic. I'm excited for this class. Funny man.

The Theatre PortionCollapse )

Thinking about Louisiana today...I'm a little puzzled by the...unpreparedness(?) in New Orleans. Don't get me wrong I don't think anyone deserves that, and I realize that there's only so much you can do during a natural disaster. But being that LA is a Gulf state AND that New Orleans is below sea level, You'd think they'd have a BETTER infrastructure for this sort of thing. Or at least a better warning system there. I don't recall hearing about N.O. getting hammered every time there's a hurricane. It's usually always Florida. Perhaps that had something to do with it?

Awesomely Bad [29 Aug 2005|01:17pm]
Last year I bought my brother Blacula for his birthday. We finally watched it last night and it was HORRIBLE (as expected) and so funny.

The premise was ridiculous! Ok, This ambassador-type man from Africa visits Castle Dracula in 1780 to ask the count for his support in ending the slave trade (yeah...I know), so blah blah he becomes Blacula. Then in 1972 two interior designers from California buy lots of stuff from the castle, including Blacula's coffin (they want to make it their guest bed). I don't want to give it all away, but basically we have Blacula roaming about Los Angeles.

There was a pretty big costuming mistake as well. The beginning was set in 1780, but Mumawalde (Blacula) was wearing a style of suit TOTALLY inconsistent with the time setting. I mean, suits as we know them today weren't even around until the late 1800s.

I might have to buy the soundtrack now. So funny.

It's not his birthday anymore in England. But since there's roughly 40 minutes left of it here, I want to wish the D'Arcy Sandwich a happy thirty-somethingth birthday!

Good morning, show folk. [20 Aug 2005|01:49pm]
So the actor students at our Theatre Grad Program will be performing these plays this year:

HEARTBREAK HOUSE by George Bernard Shaw
THE PLAY'S THE THING  by Ferenc Molnar
MAJOR BARBARA by George Bernard Shaw
ARMS AND THE MAN   by George Bernard Shaw
THE RIVALS by Richard Brinsely Sheridan

And two special performances of
created and performed by New York's deep ellum ensemble (a touring ensemble I guess. Not our actors).

First three will be performed in the Fall, and the rest in Spring.
I haven't read Major Barbara or Arms and the Man. Should give them a read.

I wish PTTP would update that website. It's looking a little dated.

A couple of weeks ago my friend Cindy and I bought those body balls. They are so fun! Not just for exercise either. Sometimes I get bored and just roll around on the floor.

I'm disappointed in the trailer for The Brothers Grimm. I was looking forward to a nice creepy light drama (not that I would have gone to see it; I don't like Matt Damon) but instead, it looks like Van Helsing.

songs [05 Aug 2005|09:50am]
I really like the "and birds go flying at the speed of sound to show you how it all began...understand" part of the Coldplay song. Only those lines though. Seriously.

The rest of the song can go *uck itself.

I heard Fast Car by Tracy Chapman today for the first time in a loooong time. It makes me sad. Sad song, isn't it? Sad in a "I can't go on like this" way. Like necessary sad. I'm going to say sad once more for good measure. Sad.

Universitaaay classes start on Aug 31! I don't even remember my schedule anymore. I know I have anthropology. That's a new one for me.
The-he-t-her! Can. not. wait to get back there. I love that old costume shop in the attic. I'll have to try to take pictures sometime.

I made a really good sandwich at work today. Turkey, cheese, and fried onions on whole wheat. I love fried onions - could eat 'em plain. I'll never ever get tired of onions. or potatoes.

A certain English muffin will be turning thirty-something soon. Somebody better her ass outside and spray paint.

Trench warfare is something that has always interested me. Advancements in small arms and artillery put the defense at a huge advantage, as direct assaults were virtually impossible, or "suicidal". Such an ...uneven point in military history. The psychological effects it caused intrigue me as well. Must've been awful. uuh

They're still finding bodies.

Fortifications are one kind of defense system that I find especially fascinating. Seems like so much effort is put into construction, and not even to keep enemies out! The intent is usually just inconvenience and slowing attackers. It amazes me.

I've become a lapsed LJ-er.
I have been reading, though, and I am aware of what's going on with everyone! I'm even more of a dead-beat commenter. I prefer not to respond or comment unless I have something decent to say. I guess I should just get over it.

Life has been insane lately.

Shall update tonight.

Think of a front man who is/was like Jim Morrison. Either by looks or just the type of band (similar to The Doors). Preferably from the same era. All shall be explained. when I feel like it. Go Team!

"Convey my joy". [11 Jul 2005|12:58pm]
Oh I watched The Life Aquatic a couple weeks ago. I think it's my favorite Wes Anderson film so far.

I hope Ian McShane wins that Emmy. I don't even care about the Emmy awards, but it might make people recognize him...and the show. Bettah' recogniiiize!

And speaking of Deadwood, there's a character, E.B. Farnum, and the actor who plays him is called William Sanderson. Mr. Sanderson lives three houses down from my step-grandmother in Harrisburg, PA. How 'bout that eh? Eh eh? eh??

"on a card, or a pad, or a teeecket! Throw it high in the AAIR, and should our lady peeck et..." [08 Jul 2005|01:51pm]
Froma lady cravat

Name ten celebrities that you find attractive and why, then tag five of your friends.

Michael Showalter Dark hair.

James D'Arcy Dark hair. Looks Irish.
Nice pointy nose and his top lip sticks out a little bit. He seems so delicate - the way he puts his hands on people, and so forth. He makes the sexiest shifty eyes ever.

Gabriel Byrne Dark haired - is Irish.
And for a long time he kept that wonderful hair longer and shaggy. He can look so Eeeeevilll. I think I first noticed him in Shipwrecked when I was 9 or something.

Kevin Kline Look at his face! I think it's his eyebrows and the way he lifts his upper lip off his teeth.

Ralph Fiennes He looks like James D'Arcy. Has a nice creepy man thing going.

George Harrison The Thirty-Three & 1/3 sunglasses.

Ian McShane Oh look at that...dark hair.
Can't quite explain this one. I love antagonist types, and he plays them frequently. Al Swearengen is one of the greatest characters in the entire universe. I also like big black eyebrows. I'm talking about when he was younger too. Good interviews. And he's got a Manchester accent.

Jeremy Northam Hair. Nose. I love when he says "Is that Lady Trentham?". My friend Ken looks jjjjust like him (that has nothing to do with why I think he's attractive, btw).

Carlos Alazraqui I really only like a character he plays , Dep. Garcia. I like his hairline. I see it in Latin-type people. My actor man is half Mexican and has that hairline, so I guess Carlos Alazraqui/Garcia reminds me of him. Carlos looks much better with a mustache. He's Argentinian 'case ya didn't know.

Joaquin Phoenix Who knows. The acting maybe? Or that line under his nose (It's not a scar).

TAAAAAAAAG (and if you did it already, who cares):
ms_bates, stefestella (I already know all of hers, but if I don't tag her, she won't invite me to her birthday party),
riverchild ladyravenwood, coneycat

And the rest of my friends....doo eeeet

if you wish to opine [07 Jul 2005|11:07pm]
So I've been doing costumes for the Delaware Shakespeare Festival. The play is Love's Labour's Lost. The costumes are from the Burgundian period. I'm not very fond of them - not for this play anyway. Too Cliched in my opi. Think of The Princess Bride. I do like that the ladies' clothing of the time had a high waist, though. Like the Empire waist of theeee *Rrrrregency* period.

CLICK ON "DRUNK CATWALK". Look at the dance he makes up!!! muahaha.

So according the the girl who has seen it, James' blonde AAH hair "Looks weird" and "he should stick with brown". You said it, sister.

Happy 229th [02 Jul 2005|11:52pm]

May all my fellow Americans have a great 4th of July!

Everyone should go out and buy that goofy-ass, yet touching musical, 1776 and get drunk and dance around the back yard.

Went to Live 8 yesterday.

The only band I really cared about seeing was DMB. Cool to see Stevie Wonder too I guess. Saw some actors present.

Pink Floyd live from London *meeeep* and with Roger Waters too!!! I hope they tour omg omg. I saw them back in 1994. Probably the greatest concert ever.

So yeah, we were really just there to be there, but it was fun. Like history all up in Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and stuff, yo. Phillyyyyyyyyyyy.
