True Love

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

I love Pocahontas. I don’t love John Smith. Enough said, I think.

Humor

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

The comedy acts in this movie just…don’t work for me. From Grandmother Willow spitting a squirrel off of her mouth to the ridiculous antics of Meeko, I just…don’t like them. They seem to cut across the gravity of the rest of the movie. And that just doesn’t sit well with me. Pocahontas is visually gorgeous, […]

Dream Man

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

I really think that Pocahontas made a bad decision. She decided to be all rebellious and do her own thing. You know, make her own decisions and stuff. Fall in love with blond, blue-eyed John Smith. Help stop her tribe and the brutish English stop trying to kill each other. Very wild. But, personally, I […]

Duality

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

I love the duality of this film. First, we get an introductory scene from England about John Smith and how awesome he is and how evil Radcliffe is. And how the Englishmen just want gold. Setting them up as both protagonists and also antagonist. And then we jump to the ‘New World’, where we are […]

Pocahontas

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Oddly, this whole storm-on-the-ocean thing reminds me a lot of the beginning of The Little Mermaid. You know, where Eric almost drowns and gets saved by the pretty redhead? Yeah…some definite similarities between John and Eric.

Disney Marathon

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

So, today is my day off and it’s been a beautiful day. I started the day out at 7am, when the dogs lost their marbles because OH MY GOD THE SUN IS UP WE MUST GREET IT. Loudly. Dogs, right?   So the day started. I went to breakfast with Mom and Granny, had a […]

Candy Cane Kisses

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

So, tonight is dress rehearsal. And, since I’ve been spending my entire days at school this week, except Tuesday which I will cover in another post, I’ve been packing enough food for two meals. Lunch and dinner. In the packing, I randomly decided to pack up some of my candy cane flavored Hershey kisses. I […]

Hell Week is Here

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

So, tomorrow begins Hell Week. I signed up to do the lightboard operating for a Student Directed One Act. And this will start tomorrow. The stage manager wants everyone to go in tomorrow and watch the play so we understand what we’re being asked to do. So, I have that lovely event planned for tomorrow […]

Winter Blues and School Flus

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

So, in the first few weeks of school, I’ve already worked my way through sickness and worked my butt off on another huuuuuge set. Three Penny Opera opened last weekend. I plan to go see it this Sunday so that I can be present for Strike (wherein we take everything apart again). I’m not sure […]

Happy Tidings!

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Today was a long, fun day. Got up at seven, went to school, sat through two hours of classes, had lunch, and went to the super-fun scene shop job I hold at GVSU’s theater. Where I managed to both bang my head and nearly break both of my thumbs. I was staining a wooden desk […]
