LMAO - that's funny :)
This is why you don't go to work drunk.
Pure comedy, though.
A friend of mine was in a production of "Oliver" once, where, during one of the performances, they altered the script a little bit. See, in that important opening scene, when Oliver asks, "Could I have some more, please?", the overseer or whatever is supposed to be all incredulous and stuff, with the whole, "More? MORE?!" and then freak out and whatnot. Well, in that particular show, he did the "More? MORE?!", but then added on a shrug and an "Alright". Then the curtain dropped, and the show was over.
Of course, this happened to be the show that was on April 1st... every other performance went through like normal.
Eeeee. that's pretty bizarre.
Were people pissed, and want their money back? I mean that's 15 minutes into the show..
you made me laugh after just waking up.!
an achievement.!!! thanks.!!!
Glad to be of assistance, my dear. :)
hahahahahhaha omg. *cries* that's too funny. LOVE that. haha.
LOL! I know.
Blessings on Mrs. Keller for being a good actress and quick on her feet.
If they had been real actors, they would have rolled with the dead daughter line and improvised a new story.
LOL! Well, it'd been interesting.
I doubt the audience who had came for the story of Anne Sullivan and Helen Keller would have been too thrilled though. ;)
as my old Director said, if you screw the lines MAKE THEM UP until you can figure out the right lines
It's true. *nod*
Improvisation is a wooooonderful thing.
I would have loved to have seen that production....
Me too. *nod* Biiiiiig time.
that reminds me of a really bad tasted joke:
why was helen keller such a terrible driver?
cause she was a woman.
Accuracy Note: Helen Keller's fever only damaged her ears and eyes.
Babies learn to speak by mimicry - They feel your mouth inside and out to see how you move your jaw and tongue. They're actually very active learners that way. For the vocal folds(yes folds, they're not cords) they only have the ability to mimic via the ears - they can't touch the inside of your throat, for obvious reasons.
When Keller actually learned how to speak, it was gutteral and difficult to understand because although she had the external shapes of the lips and tongue mostly right, her brain never made the pathways of mimicry to produce the sounds that sound human to us.
As a sidenote, there are 38 or so individual different sounds the human vocal range can produce. If you don't learn them by hearing them by the time you're one or two years old, tho, your brain hardwires over them and you mistake them for other sounds for the rest of your life. I think english uses about 20 of them.
Thanks for that. I think that those are the actual lines from the play, though, but people are silly, plus it's an older play, I imagine it was written by someone not too familiar with human speech patterns and such.
And that's reeeeally interesting.
I wonder what the other 18 are... I hope I was able to teach my kid the English ones.
Lolll. That's amazing.
Mind if I steal that to repost in my own journal?
Giving you proper credit, of course. :D
Oh take it! Feel free to alwyas sread the randomness. :) the world needs more of it.
