May 17: Catching up on Catching In
What a freaky past couple of days I've had.
Well if i didn't tell you so, hearsay did get its own gig on saturday at
artsplosure. so we sang a 20 minute intermission for the swivelr**** at
the aussie pub. i wowed the audience with my "mic check" rendition of
"still of the nite." okay you try rhyming pub with grub and see how well
we did end up adding four of our six new songs because care wasn't able to
sing her duet with steph.
there is so much to talk about there...so i'll put myself a little
reminder to delve further. needless to say many feelings were hurt on
saturday and some tears fell (none mine thank you jesus).
we're moving rehearsals to sunday because chris got a new job. oh well.
looks like my attendance record is going down the drain.
talked to steph about my vocal percussion issues. she made some since and
since my horoscope told me to look for the positive in people's comments
over the weekend...i tried to look at the bright side of what she was
saying and not the negative.
had my goodbye outing with jon. we ended up at the wine bar (my virgin
turn), Linda's bar and grill, he's not here, and miami subs. i tried not
to get drunk. and succeeded somewhat. champagne and wine mix only so
well though, ya know. saw a lot of people at he's not whom i hadn't seen
in a long time or wouldn't be seeing often after they've left chapel hill.
jon and i have begun to really solidy our friendship. i hope it endures
the distance that's about to be created.
at the various bars and whatnot i saw rachel and elena at lindas, some
former loreleis (an a cappella singing group on campus), people from
jon's hall (especially the ever lovely matt), amin -- whom i don't really
know but proceeded to show me the *** *** fraternity handshake as i was
leaving. "we are brothers forever, i guess. and several students of mine
from when i was an RA with the Carolina Summer program. good luck shelly,
ben, glenn, tyrone, adam, adriane, tara, jack, andrew...and the like at
i got some disturbing news from Glenn (pauper players). it seems that the
CS program is no more and that upsets me greatly. i'll have to look into
maybe taking it over -- would the campus hire me to do that -- i'll fill
you guys in later.
i got to see a production of city of angels on friday nite. as some of
you may now, that is my favorite musical. well it and HAIR, but this is a
COA moment. it wasn't a bad production, but i had forced myself to accept
it regardless because i was simply estatic that they were doing my show.
and since **I** got to see it for free. that made it all the more better.
some of the casting choices sucked. MUNOZ could not sing in tune. ya
gotta love that in a senior theatre major. the last bit of "All You Have
to Do is Wait" was no where near the melody nor the key that the, ahem,
jazz orchestra was playing. no where.
speaking of the orchestra. 8 members of it didn't show up. so i was
regalled with an electric bass, a piano, a drummer, a tenor sax, 2nd
trombone, and a trumpet.
w00! that poor poor trumpet player. but really they didn't detract that
much from the show if you can believe it.
My favorite song "With Every Breath i Take" was not ruined, but she didn't
make me happy either. i didn't cringe like i did in my broadway melodies
set a few years back. but i wasn't doin no flips neither. (figure that
one out you grammarians).
there was a bright spot. she's graduating unfortunately...but the woman
playing donna/oolie turned that shit out. she could have a career if she
wanted to. that's saying a lot coming from me.
saw steve tell (the videographer) at the production. so, hopefully we're
going to get the fucking video to woman's work...sooner than later.
got stood up by the other stephanie, but what else is new. we're going to
dinner tonight at the darbar. hopefully, she'll be there.
will talk about graduation later.
and i started on a new item for sue but may work on both of them so that
she'll have her pick.
i can do this. i know i can.
Sometimes you just have to believe in rainbows.
