Handy hints for a sane life

1. Never agree to direct a Theatre Restaurant.

Just don't do it... especially not as your first show. Do somthing smaller... cause YIKES.. people food, seating arrangements... its enough to drive anyone mad!!!


2. If by some chance to DO agree to direct a Theatre Restaurant, make sure that your entire cast can turn up to at very least 80% of the rehearsals.

Oh yes, sounds so simple, but is so hard. No committment, no role! you heard me, naff off!!!


3. Don't listen to people when they tell you not to worry about organising too much before hand.

They are dead wrong, organise your ass off! every single little detail, don't let anything catch you by surprise.


4. (side note on 2.) When you cast, don't give new people a chance. Not for a Theatre Restaurant.

If you ou have never seen them before, and no one else knows who they are, don't give them a role. Cause trust me, they will dissappoint you.

I'm going to stop now, cause at this point, I could just keep going and going and going...
and none of us want that.

Farewell! and wish me luck... Cause I NEED IT!!!

Serenity

I laughed, I jumped, I oooooo'd, I ahhhhhh'd

and I cried like a baby, a hungry angry baby!

My hat is off to you Joss, you create a world that is so rich, so full. People who we can love so much. And then you make us a plot to take our breath away!

Certain big budget movie makers should take many many notes from you, and try to input into there stories even the smallest part of the magic that is created when your pen is put to paper.

I am awed, to have been able to experience the gift you have given us. I stayed to the very end of the credits, just to see if the theme song made it anywhere... and started crying again when it stuck up right at the end.

I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.

No one will ever take the joy I always get from watching Firefly, and now Serenity from me.

Forever will it live on in our hearts.

Bless you Joss for making something so beautiful.

Skeleton Key

What can I say... movie reviews seem to be something I'm doing just now... cause its my life just now. Not that I have a life... but you, stuff it.

On to the review!

I can sum this movie up in three words. Piece of Crap.

Wait! four words!!! MASSIVE PIECE OF CRAP.

good god, what where they thinking. oooooo, lets make a scary movie... that isn't scary at all.
I was so damn bored through the whole thing.

oh, and the twist, the amazing you'll never guess what twist. yeah, hello. guessed it.

and explained it to my friends, trust me, they too had passed the point of non interest in this movie, just not all of them had gathered where it was going to end up,

I explained, and afterwoods, we all had a laugh about how right I was.

Even the name... the whole, wooooo mustn't go into "that" room. whatever!

if seeing kate hudson on high beam all throughout the movie, or constantly running around in her knickers does it for you, go on, waste your hard earned money on this tanker.

but otherwise, save it up. go see serenity when it comes out. do yourself a favour, and watch a movie with a plot!

The Skeleton Key: recieves... three and a half... oh my god that sucked stars.

The General Lee rides again!

Can I get a yeeeeeeee-haaaaaaaaawwwwwwww

well, today I wandered off and saw The Dukes of Hazzard... and I have to say, hot damn! I liked it!!!!

There was a decent story-line, nice and wholesome (well, compared to a lot of Hollywood story lines these days)... the performances all round where pretty damn entertaining (even Jessica Simpson did a pretty good job, and I generally have no respect for that ass flasher)

I laughed, I chuckled, I GASPED in awe as the General Lee (lord knows how many copies of that car they had to go through during filming) did its amazing gravity defying stunts! My respect goes out to the many stunt drivers involved in the filming process... those boys can DRIVE!!!

Have to admit, I could feel my heart in my throat when the General Lee first appeared..... And it got even higher later on in the film, when the General Lee appeared again, in all his glory!!

(A friend and I are considering doing up his car in a General Lee fashion).

I half expected to be very disappointed by this movie, scared of what the "Hollywood" treatment would do to the material. But instead of being let down, I was buoyed up!

It was a rip roaring adventure, going at full tilt the entire time!

Enjoyment plus!!!!! I will happily part with my money to enjoy the Dukes adventure on the big screen again! (Several times even!)

And trust me, I work at a video store, where I constantly get in trouble for being too judgemental about movies, too picky and harsh..

I have nothing to pick on with The Dukes of Hazzard. It was a completely enjoyable romp from one end to the other! 5 fun stars!!!!!

Bleh

I feel like complete crap!

yes world, its me with a cold... and me with a cold is about as good as me in the morning.

basically, keep your damn distance!!!!!

this is a well known rule in my house-hold, when the creature emerges from the cave, do not make eye contact or speak to it, it is a strangely aggressive beast when startled.

similar rule for sick-creature, leave it alone, maybe be nice to it, but don't annoy it.

example: creature gets a phone call (creature was sleeping, but phone call woke it up). now don't walk to within 2 paces of the creature and then gesture for it to go get the other phone!! (which is half the house away!) just give it the damn phone in your hand!!!!! ARGH!!!!

right, time to go away, curl up and die now.

Ta Ta!!

Living in fear

Do we all to some extent live in fear?

fear of the new, fear of the old... is being comfortable where you are, just being scared of where you could be if you went for it?

fear of being alone, but if your afraid then your more likely to be alone.

ahhh the paradox of it all.

I'm afraid, been afraid most of my life I think.
was I born this way?
was it instilled in me from a young age by my parents?
don't get me wrong, its not a fear of them, but fear of what could be.

and now, I'm trying to break free of that cycle of fear...
trying to have a go at what I want to be, and guess what. I'm afraid! I'm trying hard to not be, but I know that I am. change is scary, and I'm trying to change my entire world. no safety net, nothing to fall back on. but I must go now, or never shall I do it.

I'm scared, but this could be the best thing I've ever done.
