Less than a MONTH, to go.

So... Been travelling and rehearsing here pretty heavily. Almost died falling asleep at the wheel early yesterday morning. The show is still so patchy. A lot of stuff to do yet. At the same time I am moving this weekend and KTF runs next weekend. No rest for the weary. I am exhausted. I might not make much sense.

-Nick and I will meet again next week to stay on the same page. I have some wicked ideas about Stepfather factory and want to make sure he know them.
-Still have tons of editing to do on the soundtrack of the show. The "NO NEW CHOREGRAPHY" deadline is this saturday but I won't make it. THIS IS A HARD SHOW!
-Did a phone interview for Newcity times. It went wonderfully. the interviewer was great to talk to. want you all to read it so I'll the come accross for assistance.!!@ Don't remember what point I was making... I want to sleep!! is that allowed?
- Through the miracles of modern technology, the amazing DMX growl is in the show for a moment. I will pay
any audience member 50 dollars if they can find the BJORK bit I added to a song. I mean it. See yo after the show.
-this costume thing is getting a little scary with all the thigs left to be ordered.
-What a twisted show. Gotta finsh Telemundo BECAUSE it is so hot I can't stand it. I am chomping at ther bit for that one. (i really don't know where my friends *something* is.

I can't type anymore. I will add more thoughts tomorrow. My eyes are drooping and this is not pleading a good case for my sanity.

An Almost Autumn Blog...

So I'm sitting at the bar drinkin... Little drunk. I love the dancers we have. The talent we have is un paralled. Working with them has been a total joy. Vivian's extension makes me sick. Jessica's memory is disgusting. Laura is you but the potential and thought she puts in is crazy. Courtney is the man. Brian's talent is monstrous. Nebi's killin. Sarah is the one chick I never want to stare down... INTENSE. Lyndsey is hurt. Send her your love. Managed to get about 4:30 of Get Your Hand Off My Shoulder, Pig done. Way better than expected. We finish TPC on saturday. Also Truancy WILL be done.

So the first act is pretty much mixed in beta test form. The second act is almost there. I'll probably finish it tomorrow. Shannons rockin on the costumes. The plaid skirts have been ordered. SEXY!!
-Nick's got the scoops for TPC. and Lazerfaces' . So hot. you will see.
-Nick and I also decided upon program pics.
-Trying to get laid: We all do it. (sorry: anebriate)
-What's up with sponsorships?
-So. While I was editing music and used a lot of CoFlow stuff to fill some silences. Sure it's not JUST EL-P BUT it's SO tight!! Have you bought any of his music yet? what are you waiting for?
- Choreographing my 1:33 solo next week. I plan to go BALLS TO THE WALL.

gotta go. I'm pretty wasted. I love everyone.

Blog Blog Blog...

Hey, All
So, yes, this blog is late. It is. Sorry. Had to get this poster design done and I am in love with it. I lost my adapter for my laptop in the bag that I lost so I have had to borrow juice from other people for the last week or so. Quite frustrating. my new one should come in tomorrow or monday. Poster and postcard designs are going to print tonight. Sweet. kinda drunk right now. A lot has happened in the last week. on Monday I went shopping with shannon. found shirts and some random accoutrements for the show. gonna be super hot. found something potentially awesome for Vivian. So cute. Hope it fits. Later that day I met with Nick and we definitely want to try and get some "scoops" for TPC. It's a lighting thing you wouldn't understand. You will when you see it. if it works properly it will look like a near death experience. there was a specific look for Run the Numbers we are going for. It will be fucking hot. We also finalized the ideas for the bio pics in the brochure. It's gonna be awesome. There is this great Sinatra mugshot poster thatinspired the idea and Nick and I just ran with it.
Starting to brainstorm with marissa about some lobby display ideas. Wanna make everyone a little uncompfortable before they step into the space so they can forget about said comfort when the show starts. Hammered out an idea about opening announcements at the production meeting (yes, we plan those as well) and it should be hilarious. I need to get a phat-ass Adidas track suit for it, ASAP. Also talked with Corrie about some depressing things I will refuse to let get me down.

There is obviously a bunch of stuff to do still. So much choreography, so little time. We are working Get your hand off my Shoulder, Pig and Telemundo. should be tasty as hell.
-Trimming down Telemundo tomorrow morning,
-have to find out who's videoing this
-Rehearsing with Brian and Nebi for Poisenville Kids
-catch everybody upon choreogrphinc a whole should. Have fun.

You look nige in a shirt before.

Okay that should be enough. Speparate you absentloutly will.
Enjoy your wleep, passion and virtuility to put upon better. Swee dreams? I have to go before my legs give out.

Blog from Cornell University

"Tonight... Is your night, bro!!"
Danny Devito, Twins,

Just wrapped two shows at Cornell. In my absence, jessica Deahr taught No King for me (there are only 6 eights missing!) It's gonna be sick. sending the poster to rissa tonight for suggestions. should be tight. Since last I spoke at you I realize how much work there is to do. I will definitely be crunching numbers once I see where we are on saturday. Our first stumble through of any sort.

Pressures on Shannon to get this adidas thing working. It has to happen. Must have some funky kicks for this show. Gotta Happen. Shell toes would be perfect throwbacks. Finally thinking in a level-headed way about this show. sorry if I don't make sense. Exhausted. Just ordered the preshow, intermission, and post-show music for This beast. had almost forgotten. Two cds down and 1 to go.

Too many irons in the fire right now. How are we going to make these shoes work? gotta start shopping this next week for accessorizing ideas.

Gotta finish this music editing. Much more difficult than I thought.

I really just want to know if there is a way to backlight the raised proscenium at Page's. A couple "scoops" would get me hot. Definietly want a bright near-death experience look in the opening. we'll talk production stuff this weekend.
Also want to know if we can flicker the lights a little bit. (Nick: what say you?) I would really like to have one lighting look that had a flourescent feel to it. It will work with the costumes nicely.
