Milkshake by Emmybates(Sophie totally bursts Mr. Doug's weird 80's dancing bubble)So: let's make it a collective goal to have at least 25 (I upped the ante) non-performing audience members plus at least 10 good pieces at the next show. Yes Shame has been good in the past, so uh, maybe it will be good in the future?Okay, commence reviewing.
Dude, I totally agree.Except for the part about my pieces being good, because I have been in a serious slump also (although maybe last night's piece was the beginning of not sucking? Maybe?). I also keep feeling like it's my fault that the shows are so sloppy and unprofessional, because I never really know what's going on. I don't want to be a fun-killer but I think if I (and everyone) tried to pull it together and put on a good show instead of just slouching around, not knowing the order, and going out of character all the time, people would actually like it more.Also yeah I think Yes Shame has two parts, the audience and the writers/performers, and they are equally important; one can't exist without the other... if there is no audience the performers aren't motivated to do their best work, but if the pieces are crappy, no one will want to come to the shows. But I'm going to work really hard on writing something (maybe two things, if I can swing it) good this week, and, assuming everyone else does the same we should be able to spread the word that Yes Shame is fun and not even be lying.
1. Ode to a Lost Love by LILLYHilarious2. All State Orchestra by TareqBest of the night3. Stupid Cupid by EleniNot as funny as it was in my head? Still alright.4. Love is in the Air by King Sophie + Philip BergmanPretty good, we should have rehearsed.5. Dillon Goodlaxon by MikeI didn't know what all the abreviations meant...but it was good.6. Honest Henry's guide to Emmy Bates by King SophieIt was really good until the death...Dillon didn't pull that off too well.7. Milkshake by EmmybatesJob well done by Mr. Lestina.
2. All State Orchestra by TareqAw, this was really good. I agree with Sophie that it would have been good to make the competition really skewed in favor of that other kid... although maybe that would have been too predictable? Anyway, I hope Tareq writes more pieces.3. Stupid Cupid by EleniNice4. Love is in the Air by King Sophie + Philip BergmanUh, I don't think I actually got hit by an arrow. Also the dance party was pretty embarrassing/bad. It was a good idea and I thought the script was pretty good too but if there had been time it could have been expanded upon, and also rehearsed and better staged.5. Dillon Goodlaxon by MikeYeah this was good. I liked it.6. Honest Henry's guide to Emmy Bates by King SophieThe sort of improv'd monologue part was good, the killing, yeah, didn't turn out as well but it's the thought that counts.7. Milkshake by EmmybatesYOU GUYS DID MR DOUG LOOK CRAZY OR WHAT
Yeah, sorry about that arrow thing... Was that the glider one that flew in some other direction?Whoopsies.
Order:1. Ode to a Lost Love by LILLYoh the sonnet de potats. fantastic2. All State Orchestra by TareqNice. does anyone know if it was based on a true story? It made me think though, how often do you go in an elevator, and hear elevator music? 3. Stupid Cupid by Eleninice.4. Love is in the Air by King Sophie + Philip BergmaI liked it. the dance part at the end sort of failed, but still a sweet piece5. Dillon Goodlaxon by Mikeat first, I had like 3-minutes of the stuff, but cut it down, because I thought it'd get old6. Honest Henry's guide to Emmy Bates by King Sophieha. cool idea7. Milkshake by EmmybatesTotal crap. not really. twas awesome, but ussually when douggers gets into the fun, it makes it fun.What happened to all of the freshman that came at the end of the last semester? The margo+ others bunch...
oh man, I forgot about the little dudes with the hats. usually red outfits? I never really hear the music or see the men. once in a while I'll stay at a hotel in Chicago, and there is no music, and never a little man in red
oh man, I started with oh man too, and didn't know it...
Sorry I missed it, but there was something much more exciting going on at the library. They were showing "Sleepless in Seattle" at the library, and there was a chocolate fountain.But I was here this week. And I can't wait to review this week's order!
