Comedy Group Interest Dec. 29th, 2010 @ 10:37 pm
I am interested in forming or joining a comedy group in the Providence/Worcester/Boston area. My availability is Monday, Wednesday, Friday after 6pm and weekends. Will travel up to two hours on weeknights and unlimited on weekends for performances. Improv, sketch, live, taped, experimental, etc.; all forms of comedy welcome.

-Meeting at least once a week regardless of performance opportunities is important.
-I believe in letting anyone try comedy but it is important to recognize that comedy is a team sport and sometimes people just don't fit in. Your funny might be someone else's lame. You just have to find your niche.
-Commitment to the joke is key.
-Stick to your principles and ideas but sometimes you just have to give the crowd what they want.

-I have experience in both comedy and drama on the stage and worked in production positions.
-My strengths are slapstick comedy, committing to the joke, acting drunk or like a child, and less than witty comebacks.
-Will sing and dance when prompted, but I don't know why anyone would want me to.

You Again...sort of sucked Sep. 26th, 2010 @ 06:42 pm
So, I was hoping that people were wrong when they said that "You Again" sucked, but I have to sort of agree with them. The weird Disney-esque music didn't fit at times, the writing was kind of cruddy, and the plot could have been better; but I did enjoy some things. I think that all of the actors played their parts well, even if their parts weren't very good. Some of the music was great and fit the scenes very well. And I will agree with the reviews and say that there were no real laugh-out-loud moments, but the reason that I didn't laugh out loud was because I was too busy giggling to myself every time something awkward happened. It wasn't awkward in the bad way but rather the kind of "this is exactly how it would happen in real life" kind of awkward. I think that the real problem was that instead of having all of the characters be exaggerated they tried to make a comedy using normal people. There were some characters that were a little over the top but honestly I know that people like that exist and they weren't weird enough to be caricatures. Overall there were no clear bad guys or good guys but I think that if there was one more iteration of the script that this movie could have been so much better. Save your money and watch it when it comes out on Netflix. The only reason to see it in the theatre is if you want to support the actors in the movie. Saying all of that, I will still admit that I have seen far worse movies than "You Again".

Celebrity Crushes Sep. 25th, 2010 @ 07:41 pm
Currently I have two strong celebrity crushes. One is Matt Bomer. He is not only gorgeous (dark hair, light eyes is my kryptonite) but he is a fantastic actor and also seems awesome in real life. White Collar is one of my favorite shows of all time. Everyone on the show is really good but Neal Caffrey is by far the best character. I also think that the people who cast the show have a penchant for persons with dark hair and light eyes. Next time you watch it check out how many people fit that criteria. Season 01 blew my mind even more when I realized that (and also when I realized that they use the board from the Uncle Wiggley board game to help plan one their their heists). We'll just ignore the rumors that Matt Bomer has children with his life partner (a man). That just complicates things. "If" the rumor is true though, it is totally adorable that he has kids.

The second celebrity crush is Kristen Bell. I really wish that I could stop her from making so many poor role choices because she is so much better than most of the movies she is in. She can sing, she can act, she has no problem making an ass out of herself for a laugh, and she can cry on command. She also loves the environment and helping people. All around she seems like a pretty awesome person and I wish that she did more good stuff. I'm hoping that her new movie "You Again" doesn't bite the big one.

I gots a jorb Sep. 24th, 2010 @ 08:44 pm
Well, now that I gots a jorb, I should start thinking about what I can write about. I want to try to continue to write a little something every day.

For today, all I can write is: Does everyone in Juno have to talk like a teenager? My parents don't talk like teenagers. They may try, but it comes out silly and then we make fun of each other. I just can't stand when adults are in scenes in this movie. *shiver* Awkward...

Reason for wanting a job #12: Writing about wanting a job can be depressing.

When it got down to it, I didn't have many good reasons for wanting a job and I couldn't come up with any fun or funny ones. I realized that the situation was far more depressing than I originally thought. But all that has come to an end! Tomorrow I get a physical and pee in a cup and then head over to Providence to get a background check and voila! I have a job starting Monday. Yay! Goodbye boredom, crap on TV, interviews, and writing about depressing situations! Hello money, bentos, helping people, sleep, shopping, benefits, moving out (eventually), and schedules!

Reason for wanting a job #11: Schedules

Schedules are nice. Schedules are useful. Once I have a job, I will have a set schedule. I will have to wake up early (and not sleep the entire day away), get ready, go to work, work, take a lunch break at noon, work some more, come home, eat dinner, watch TV, and go to bed. Yes, schedules can get in the way, but it is better than having too much time on my hands and not being able to sleep at night because I slept all day. Boredom tends to do that to me.

Speaking of schedules, I am behind on my online courses. Who knew that learning about the history of quality would be so boring. Hopefully we'll get to more interesting things soon.

Reason for wanting a job #10: Moving out.

Don't get me wrong; I know that I am very lucky to be able to live with my parents for as long as I want. But I don't want to. I want to have my own place where I can do whatever I want whenever I want. Also, my parents have been paying for me my entire life including apartments and school so why should they continue to pay for me now?

Reason for Wanting a Job #9 Sep. 20th, 2010 @ 05:47 pm
Reason for wanting a job #9: Benefits

There is a new law in RI that health benefits can extend to dependents, even after they have graduated from school, until the age of 26. This, however, does not extend to dental care. I dislike all forms of doctors but having full health insurance would be really good. Sicky is bady.

Reason for wanting a job #8: Shopping

I've noticed lately that when I am happy or feel accomplished I like to shop. I've also noticed that when I'm feeling like a failure I like to shop. Shopping would be easier with money and a job would give me money so with the transitive property of money I would get money. Money, money, money.

Money.

Forgive my thinking processes today. I was hit in the head with a plate last night. It was one of the worst weddings I've attended but it was still good because people were having fun. And my thinking process has nothing to do with the plate but everything to do with not sleeping well.

Money.

Reason for wanting a job #7: Sleep consistency

Ya, I know that this one is lame but I'm running late this morning and won't have access to a computer later today so I had to come up with something fast. Why am I late? I overslept. My body can't seem to accept a sleep cycle lately and I'm hoping that once I get a job I can force it to wake up at the proper time (through fear) and I will be tired enough to just fall asleep at a decent time. Here's to getting paid to sleep at the correct time!
