I don't like hype. I am probably less likely to go see an over-hyped movie in the cinema, or to rent it years later. (For example: I still have not seen either "Titanic" or "Avatar".) So it should be no surprise that I was skeptical about "Hamilton: An American Musical". And yet, so many friends… Continue reading Misc Monday ~ in which I join the Hamilton band wagon
Today’s Ten on Tuesday prompt is “10 Thoughts On This Year’s Oscar Show”. Well, I’m in luck! I actually watched (most of) the Oscars this year. (Granted, there were optional prompts in case we didn’t watch, but still. I like to do the “regular” one when I can.) So, here are my 10 thoughts… 1.… Continue reading Ten on Tuesday ~ And the Oscar goes to…
Backstage at Lyric Theatre of San Jose's production of Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Grand Duke"
I saw Disney•Pixar’s “BRAVE” almost a few weeks ago, and loved it. I didn’t think much of what I made of the story until I read Joely Sue Burkhart’s review of it at the end of that same week. Since then, I’ve realized something pretty major. “BRAVE” isn’t really a story about Merida. It’s actually… Continue reading Brave
I am alive, really. Just haven't quite come back from Oz yet. It might not be a super in-depth blog, but here's a little something... 1. My niece makes the cutest Munchkin. And she likes playing with "Toto" backstage. 2. What is up with this weather? It's July in California, for goodness sake. 3. It's… Continue reading Six Things Make a Blog
Though technically I have a lot more to do with the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys than I do with Dorothy.
Life sure is a learning process, isn't it? In the past year -- heck, in the past three months -- I've learned an awful lot about myself. Wanna know some of what? No? Too bad. I'm going to tell you anyway. (Face it -- you're visiting my blog. If you didn't want to know more… Continue reading Learning Process
I had planned to move my book review posts to Monday, since I'm only planning 3 blog posts a week for now. However, I rediscovered something about having a special guy in my life that I had quite forgotten... I don't get nearly as much reading done as when I'm all by my onesy*. You know people… Continue reading Monday Morning Musings
Just a very quick post today to explain the blog silence... This is what I have been doing lately. It's been fun, but now it's over, and I think I'm caught up on sleep (as much as I'm going to be). So hopefully posting will resume as usual tomorrow.
Character. It's something that goes around my head a lot. There's staying-in-character-theatre-style, and staying-in-character-writing-style. It's essentially the same thing, except with writing you can go back and adjust things to make sure you're still in character. With theatre, you have to be a lot more disciplined, because if you slip, the audience will see. (Of… Continue reading Characteristics
