Dollars for the singing dead. [Apr. 8th, 2008|02:24 pm]

One of the oldest accounts of ghosts is in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, which shows dead people reappearing much as they did before death, including the style of dress.

I'm going to regret this... but have you ever has a visit from a ghost? I've had two, with the second recurring too often to count.

And this is awesome. You click and they give a DOLLAR per click for battered women! If you all clicked we would have over 800 dollars donated in one day, PLUS whatever your friends click if you pass it on.

And your video. :) Very obvious lipsynching. Cracked me up.

Yeah, as far as I can tell, she's never had a scary ghost experience. She can tell when a spirit is restive and what not, and she's done some excorcising (sp?) but she seems to enjoy it. I hope she does lol. We live in a very haunted area.

One night I came into my bedroom and there was powder sprinked across the floor, and my sister very convincingly swore it wasn't her and we freaked out that a ghost had one it. But of course my sister was just a big liar. LOL

LOL! That's awesome. What a brat. Was it April Fools day?

And she's done exorcisms? That's kinda hardcore.

I dont think it was April Fools day. I would remember feeling PARTICULARLY stupid LOL.

I may not be using the correct term. She's exorcised spirits from people's houses, but not people's bodies. AAAH!! horrifying.

The last play I did had a scene where one of my fellow actors was being occupied by a spirit. it was friggin' freaky to rehearse. hahaha.

Ooh! What show was that? That sounds like it'd be really fun to act, but definitely has the ability to be freaky.

And I've heard about people doing that, like with sage and stuff, priests do it a lot I think. Next time I move I may pay the fee just to have it done, just because it's too freaky, and my kid's all ready telling me he's seeing ghosts at my house here and I've never had an encounter. Freaks me out!!

The show was that play I did Six Short Films About Black Holes.

Yeah, you know it doesn't hurt to do it when it obviously runs in your fam!

Exactly. My kid's all ready showing signs, which is weird because so far it's only been passed to the girls. I'm getting all JK Rowling about it and wonder if because he's a boy he's going to have like triple the abilities or whatever. lol.

I had a dream bout Blithe Spirit last night. I've never done the play, and have only read parts, but it was very strange, so I was just curious if that was the one you were referring to earlier, because that would have been funny. :)

It wasn't, but funnily enough, our local theatre Trinity Rep is doing it and I spent part of my afternoon reading its reviews (all good, which don't surprise me because the actors playing Charles and Elvira are the two funniest people at that theatre)

Haha, awesome. ;) Also, Richard III was done recently?! Omg. I love that show.


AND In the City of Light and Love in 1960, anything seems possible. An unconventional love story is at the heart of this jazzy new musical. Sam is a brokenhearted expatriate, certain that he’s left romance behind... until he meets a young soldier, fresh-faced and full of optimism. Meanwhile, the beautiful chanteuse Marie doesn’t see that she’s mixed up with the wrong guy, while true love is right under her nose. What is this magic that lets them follow their hearts? It’s Paris by Night. -----I've never heard of this show. Is it an area premiere?

Yes, Richard was okay - had its high points and "meh" points LOL (the production itself, not the play obviously LOL)

Yeah "Paris by Night" is a new musical they are premiring. Their new musicals so far have been pretty lame LOL HOWEVER - the guy who is playing the lead in this one, Joe Wilson Jr, is BRILLIANT AND HOT! so i will definitely be seeing it hee hee.

Aww, bummer. It's such an easy show to get right, if you have a good cast and director. Did they set it in any different time period? What artistic (if any. ;) ) choices did they make?

And a lot of original musicals are, but every now and then there's a Floyd Collins and it's worth it. ;)

And hot actors definitely help a production. ;)

It was set in present day. I can't actually think of any artistic choices that stood out to me. The theatre though, is very actor-centered, so their shows in general are purposefully pared down. It was particularly bloody, I can say that. LOL And the kids who were killed onstage died very well. LOL!

In present day? Youd have to do so much GOOD directing to make that work. Irritating!!

And they killed the kids on stage? I honestly don't know how I feel about that.

I'm glad they're actor-centric. You can get some incredible performances that way.

The kids killing was onstage, but it was the most theatrically done. Most of the other killings were by guns (with decent blood effects) and strangulation/suffocation that were realistic. But the kids were more artfully done, er, as far as killing kid can go (though it was still obviously horrific. haha)
