I just found loads full of embarrassing videos of my many Kaleidoscope Productions on Youtube. WHO KNEW KALEIDOSCOPE HAD A YOUTUBE PAGE?! These videos include a few from B.U.L.L.Y., Pochahontas, and The Frog Prince. My favorite part about Frog Prince is there is one video for every song I sing EXCEPT “Whenever I See a Fly,” because I’ve maybe done the lyrics correctly one time in...
I was having a long Thursday till I discovered...
Free Flu Shot at Pless Hall!
Garfield band-aid included… Alright.
This is what I overhear at Quiznos
Worker: What do you want?
Worker: White or Wheat?
Worker: You want mayo?
Costumer: I said healthy.
Worker: So does that mean you want the mayo?
Holy Moley, we have been at NYU for one month today. That’s crazy. I feel like I’ve been living here for years but all at the same time I feel like I’ve been here for only a few weeks. I’m well into the habits of school, the work, the long nights, the triple drafts of an essay before handing it in, but I already feel I know my classmates so well. I know I’m not alone...
I think Pandora Radio and I are now in a...
Although I was frustrated for a period that they started to put 10 second ads every 5 songs, the profile they just created me made me remember why I love Pandora. Pandora is SPOT ON when they discribe what I like in songs. You like: “mellow rock instrumentation, folk influences, acoustic sonority, minor key tonality, reggae influences, mild rhythmic syncopation, subtle use of vocal harmony,...
Alternating Chris Bathgate, Ray LaMontagne, and Brett Dennen playlist is the soul reason that I did not give up on my paper for Writing the Essay. I understand its only a rough draft but I’m actually trying really hard, strange. Slowly, but surely, I am starting to understand this whole “thinking on the page” concept that my wacko-pseudo Matthew McConaughey professor is talking...
Luke: I'm trying to write this writing the essay paper and failing epically.
Ashley: Me too, I'm furious that this class exits.
Luke: I think all freshman are quite frankly. Bahhhhhh, I'm only on my second page. Why, Lord, why??!?
Ashley: THIS IS WHY PEOPLE JUMP FROM BOBST.
I just got hit, suddenly within one hour, with a gross cold. I walked out of Stagecraft feeling a little light headed and not my best. I grabbed food, brought it upstairs and started to do some work. I went outside to go get something at CVS and somewhere between CVS and back I developed a stuffy nose, a mass headache, and a missing voice. This is the fastest I’ve been hit with a cold, ever....
Damn it New York,
Why is it so hot?!
I spent money, but it was an investment!
I am proud to say that I spent 3 dollars on a corkscrew for not only myself, but for the entire Ed Theatre group, so next time, when we decide to make sangria again, we will not have to resort to sharp knives and teeth. AND not only is it a corkscrew, but its a Robot Corkscrew (yes, you read that right, it looks like a robot). Sometimes, things on sale at Urban Outfitters are rather cheap....
I am not spending any more money. At least till...
So I won a lottery for the first time..?
Out of over 3000 people that applied, I won!! Its one ticket to the premiere of 1.4 Billion Reasons with Hugh Jackman and Hugh Evans. Its a production by the Global Poverty Project and there will be lots of famous/ important people, yada yada yada. But I can’t go. I have rehearsal that night, which just plain old sucks. And its not even like I can just miss rehearsal because its my scene so...
seanraymondwalsh: mkilduff9: i have been talking to alot of people in our class and they all have told me that they dont want to wear togas during spirit weak. now i understand this is tradition and all but if a majority of our class doesnt want to do it, i dont see why we should. also, the tradition itself doesnt make any fucking sense. just wondering how you feel about it Don’t question...
This is so exciting.
In short, without trying to explain to you what Collegium is, I just had a meeting with my first student director for the show I am stage managing, light designing, and media designing for. I don’t know yet what the name of the show is, or what the show will be about exactly. BUT, although I can’t give too much away, let me say its an experimental piece where the audience has no place...
"Lord, we take this journey..."
I’m sitting in my favorite class ever right now, Contexts and Cultures: Encounters of the New World, and we are currently learning about what Columbus left behind when he was trying to hit the shores of Asia. We are talking about the Spanish Inquisition, which was also the same time of Columbus and in 1492 the Jews of Spain were given two options: convert to Catholism or leave Spain. In...
I am far too loud for "quite hours"
I love rehearsal..
But with this headache, Glee, and loads of homework, there is nothing I want to do less than go to rehearsal. Two hours of new music I have never heard before, and most likely choreography. I would generally be excited, but I do not want to go. I also think that the three people I liked from my World History class should come visit me: Jaime Papa, Kerrin, Siobahn and Mr. Ciccone. I also want...
Vampire Weekend is playing in the background on...
gymnopedia: So far that’s the only part of this show that I like. It was a slow start for sure. But I think its going to turn out to be good eventually. I like the camera angles and shots a lot, and so far the story line is intriguing enough. I don’t know how I feel about this whole “wormhole” situation that happened at the end, but I’m willing to give it a few more...
I'm going have a BF.
The Event just started and there is a fire drill. I could kill someone. I’m missing essential plot points minute by minute. NYU, you’re going down.
Contexts and Cultures: Encounters of the New...
Yup. This class SUCKS. In fact, I’m in it right now, and I am blogging so I don’t fall asleep in my professor’s presence. This is a lecture class of around 80-100 kids. Slowly but surely, people fell asleep and I am not lying when a say there are only 55 students still awake. Maybe she should speak clearly at 8 am (she uses “uhm..” at least once every sentence,...
It was the nicest day today..
And I was inside. For six hours from 11-5. Rehearsal made me miss the most temperature-perfect weather since my move in. And let me say, after 5 hours of sleep (we went to go see Rocky Horror Picture Show last night, and I’m still in a state of shock to form words to describe it to you), dancing for 6 hours was really not what my body was looking forward to. So I’m grabbing a Pumpkin...
My grandpa calls and leaves a message:
“Hi, this is Vincent Rinaldi, I am calling looking for a safe sex educator. We are having some issues here in New England with some our senior citizens. Its becoming a real issue. So I’ll be in my office all day today if you could just give me a call back. Thank you.” I love this man to death.
I love Francesca soooo much she’s soooooo cooollllll yessh I LOVE HER.
LITTLE ITALY FEAST WHAT WHAT?!
This should be a scene in a movie.
I’m eating dinner in the park and there are cops playing catch with a drunken man who looks like a homeless version of Jimmy Fallon. I keep getting invited to play and I have made up my mind about it yet.
Who are they to judge me?… They’re working.– Todd Singer
There was a tornado in Queens. What?!
Vampire weekend tickets 10 dollars?
Hell yes, Radio City Music Hall.
I love studio class on monday and wednesday...
I love this park.
I was being really productive with homework until… A woman comes riding around slowly on a bicycle singing a song about becoming vegan: Vegan’s have better sex, better health. Go vegan for life! Do you want make cows cry? They don’t want to die! I just have one wish, that you eat a vegan dish. We were meant to be herbivores so don’t make animals sore! Go vegan for life! ...
Vegan sloppy joes, free drinks, a poster sale, and the best weather since being here. Homework in the park? I think so.
Holy Shit Ali and Sean!
Congratulations! You guys must be on absolute cloud 9 right now. Your admittance into these acapella groups are only a sign of bright things to come in both of your futures. I want you both to email me a schedule so I can come to one or many of your shows! BAH I love you both, congrats!!!!!!
The book you write is the most important book you’ll read.– My acting professor
I put up a homework calender.
Instead of making life easier for me, its stressing me out more.
I'm officially and Ed Theatre student.
I just did 2 and a half hours of tableaus and I feel like a champ.
Alice, equity, what?!
We follow equity rules. Its epic. I love it. We have to get a 5 minute break every hour or 10 minutes every hour and a half.
I always knew I’d have lots of work at NYU, but I think I seriously underestimated this.
There is a midget
Who stands on the corner of Washington Place and Washington Park and tells you how long till your next class. I thought this was a myth till I saw him and he told me I had ten minutes till class started. How did he know?
Ready, Set, GO!
Classes start tomorrow! I’m so excited to get in gear and finally have a schedule. I loved welcome week, don’t get me wrong, but it really was just like a 8 day weekend. It was an absolute blast but I am tried from Welcome Week. Now I’m going to be on a schedule and I’m going to have to do work and I’m actually excited. Luckily enough, my first class tomorrow morning...
Classes start tomorrow. Frightening and exciting. So today, I was supposed to be finishing my summer reading and preparing my books for class. Instead, I am decorating my room. Whatever. I’ve already won the award for “most comfiest bed” from a majority of my friends and now I’m going make my room feel the same. Pictures to follow!
