There's no velociraptors in Shakespeare!

Well, guess there are now.

My Own Clone Wars

So, if you didn't already know, I'm part of a four person comedy group called The Damsels of Dorkington, and our fourth member recently left. We recruited someone new and awesome, and decided to make a funny video to introduce her. I wrote the script, and a friend of ours filmed and edited the video, as well as doing the effects for it. Please check it out, and if you like it, repost/retweet, etc.

So apparently there's some kind of attack on lj from Russian sources because lj is the closest thing they've got to a free press and a lot of people are moving to Dreamwidth. I probably won't be going. Not that it matters since I hardly ever post here (but I'm trying! Really, I am!) but I do read it at least once per day to keep up on what my friends are doing. So anyone who's making the move, just let me know and I'll happily follow the uh... width of your dreams.

After OKRF, Weekend I

Share
eye of sauron
Well, I'm muddy in places I didn't think mud could go and finals season at school is dumping teh exhaustzzors on me, but otherwise, feeling great. In fact I'm happier than I've been in years. This first weekend at OKRF was exactly what the doctor would have ordered, if there were a doctor who prescribed renaissance festivals and their AWESOME casts/patrons. There was cruddy weather, but Willie's Wenches had good crowds (some huge ones on Sunday) of (literally) screaming groupies. The whole "don't stop performing from 12:15-5:30" thing really makes the day fly by. My latest brainchild: "Every Ren Faire Song You've Ever Heard" went over like helium on crack at Pub Sing, and the new show "Hamlet vs. MacBeth" has apparently (according to one vendor) left people's asses on the benches after they'd been laughed off. And just when I was dreading losing my capacity for improv, a "prop malfunction" at the Smoker caused my inner Peter North to come out, huh huh huh.

Can't wait for this weekend!

Because Willie's Wenches just got booked at GenCon! Wheeeeeeeeeeee!

April 2nd, 2009

Willie's Wenches are heading out to our first stop of the Ren Faire season, the Norman Medieval Faire. Hope I see lots of friends out there! We're on the Camelot Stage all three days, so don't be shy; come visit.

Willie's Wenches, my Shakesperean comedy group has finished its run at the Haunted Castle of Muskogee as of last weekend- while I can't say I'm not happy to have some free time again (the whole work-school thing and all...) I'm missing it and the people I know and got to know already. I can say with complete honesty it was one of the best gigs I've ever worked. WW added numerous tricks to our bag thereof, the patrons were AMAZING (seriously, one family came to almost every show and then gave us a luxuriant gift basket on the last night, people like this are priceless!) and of course, our partners in crime the Jester Rejects were and are a delight to perform with. There were too many good and great moments for me to list in one journal entry. To all my friends in OK, old and new, thank you for one of the best Octobers a girl could have.

And in other news, it turns out that real British people want to see us do our Shakespeare thang here in the KC area - the Daughters of the British Empire have requested our presence as performers at the Annual British Faire, right after tea (12:15 pm). Yayy for being hearted by real British people!

October 2nd, 2008

Willie's Wenches and their friends the Jester Rejects will be performing on the Pirate Ship stage at the Castle of Muskogee as part of the Haunted Castle festivities, every weekend in October. Can't wait! Especially, looking forward to seeing all of my Oklahoma friends again. We'll be doing two shows a night of "A Midsummer Nightmare's Scream On Elm Street 13," and one hour long variety show with the Jester Rejects in between. Hilarity ensues!

Now that I've spent two days doing not-too-much more than sleeping, I'm recovered enough to recount some of my awesome adventures from the past two weeks. First there was the KC Fringe Festival, where Willie's Wenches debued our musical spectacular Hamlet: Electric Boogaloo to rave reviews and full houses. We ended up tied for the number two spot on the KC Stage website, and I was actually proud to be a part of the Kansas City arts community. Took in a few of the other shows (Six, The Alley Cat Revue) with some of my group-mates and an old friends. For those of you who couldn't make it, here's a sample of one of the songs we did, from the "Female Inner Monologue Song" (to the tune of "Part of Your World"):

And after that it was off to Tulsa, to see some of my Oklahoma chums and perform at DefCon 7. I don't know if I can adequately describe how much fun I had. Some activities of note: casino night, our "special by-invitation only" performance of Electric Boogaloo, meeting Peter Mayhew, Tom Morga, and Man Thing, and of course, being chased around the convention center like Daffy Duck by the Stormtroopers of the 501st. Video footage will hopefully follow!

Because I love chess!

Actually, I joined Chess Club for a cute boy... and the tasty food they always had at the meets. But I do play a bitchin' game of double blitz.

Your result for Which Chess Piece are You Test?...

The Queen's Rook


The Queen’s Rook is a pensive, analytical individual. They don’t mind spending long periods of time on their own to work through problems. They may venture so far into thought they appear vacant or detached; often they really are oblivious of the world at that moment. These wayward princes are precise about descriptions and by habit correct others (or feel sorely tempted) if the shade of meaning is slightly off. This is annoying to the less concise, but this is what gives the Queen’s Rook a gift for gab, especially in writing.



This Rook is relatively easy going until their principles of truth, knowledge and justice are violated. Because of this they hate the formalities of bureaucracy, politics, and authority – which tend to mask the truth of operations. They will respond with a flip of the switch and become outspoken and inflexible. They will eventually drop the issue, because they do prefer a reserved and benign ambiance. The problem with the Queen’s Rook is when they are debating a point; they may be convincing themselves as much as their opponent. They spend a considerable amount of time second-guessing their abilities and may come to multiple conclusions that offer plausible solutions.



An indicator that a friend may be a Queen’s Rook is an obsession with logic. If a mistake is made, it is because there wasn’t enough data or it was placed out of context. Another indicator you’re friend is a Rook, throw a strategy game at them. They enjoy Risk, Bridge, Chess, and word games. Never rush the Rook. They don’t draw conclusions very quickly. If one were to gather a bunch of Rooks together to form a group they may debate:



1.) Whether or not there should be a group.


2.) Exactly what name should the proposed group choose?


3.) Which of the persons in the group should take responsibility or should they rotate?
