This is Cathy who was at th M&G with you, Ariane and I got our wrists signed ;) I just wanted to say I'm really sorry we lost you, everything got a bit crazy and people kept saying hi and whatever! I'm glad you got your tattoo done, it looks great! And at LA Inks as well - coolness :)
That sounds fabulous! It's great that you're keeping with it. I can act so-so on stage, but I think I'd be horrible on film... everything is more exaggerated on stage and would seem ridiculous in a movie XD Plus I think I feed off the audience a lot. I was in choir for 8 years so I'm an alright singer as well...it's the dancing I always had a problem with. Give some choreographed bit and I can learn it ok and get it done, but I can't make it look good and my face goes to shit because I have to focus so much on remembering what to do next. Funny because all the other girls are the opposite...dancing come naturally (or they've been training since they were 5) but the singing is only just getting by. Still, in my city's community theater, apparently dancing out-ranked singing so I always got lesser parts and it became no longer fun for me.
I did sound, costume assisting, some construction, and stuff. never props though. Continuity always sounded like something I could get into...I'm the kind of person who not only has an eye for detail, but I focus SO much on the details that I'll often forget the really big important stuff. It's sounds like you and I have that in common XD
Anyway, it was all really fun while it lasted, and I do miss it sometimes, but I found my calling with animals so I'm happy with what I'm doing now, which is good :)
Oh yeah, TELL me about it... I see amazing props for sale all the time, but I'm BEYOND poor lately...destitute actually! Someday I will get more props! Speaking of ties, I'd love to get my hands on one of the ones "CGB" gives to his cohorts at Christmas in 'Musings.'
So you used to work in theater? What kind of work did you do? I was a huge theater dork in high school and college, and did a little bit with the local community theater, but I always wish I'd done more. I did a little backstage stuff, but mostly I was on the performing end. My ex majored in lighting design (and we were together for 4 years) so I hung out back stage A LOT. Much fun! And stress ;)
I hope you don't mind me posting this here guys, but I'm undertaking some research on responses to the revival from fans, former fans, lapsed fans and never-were-fans. This will contribute to my PhD on negotiating fandom, which I began back in 2010…See More
