Brief post, because I simply must spread word of how awesome Bioshock 2 looks!
Multiplayer? Check! New plot? Check! New equipment? Check! Dual wielding a giant drill and a flamethrower plasmid? ...I must buy this game!!!
Don't think so? WATCH THIS.
Back now? Yeah, that's what I thought.
Musical rehearsals are both heating up and slowing down. No more 6ams, but now we have long after school rehearsals EVERY DAY. And now we're mixing in Madrigal 6ams, oh, JOY. [/sarcasm]
Y'know what I've realized about the version of Beauty and the Beast I'm doing? It's so very 80s. I knew that's when it was written, but this is just NUTS. And the music is a bit schizophrenic when it comes to the genre, it can't really seem to decide what it wants to be. Is it a traditional musical, or is it a rock opera? IT DOESN'T KNOW!!!


HMS Frantic Boredom

Well, I missed the concert. Lame. But I'll survive. And now we move on to Christmas music! We have eight songs so far, just about every one is a recognizable song. But most are interesting arrangements, so that's a kind of a bonus.
We've finished off 6 am rehearsals for South Pacific, but now we move into early madrigal rehearsals. *sigh*
Electronic media don't seem as appealing as they used to. It's an interesting turn. I need something new to do. Blogging seems to help a bit, but not by much.
High School Musical. I am simply baffled as to how popular it is. I blame Disney's relentless marketing techniques. My sister is enamored with it, and the music is so dang catchy!
November is NaNoWriMo. National Novel Writing Month. The basic is objective is to write a 50,000 word novel over the course of one month... A month. That's almost 2000 words a day! I've attempted this mountain a couple of times and fallen flat on my face on both occasions. I simply don't have time for it! Will I try it again? I don't know.


Not Good In Any Way Whatsoever

Listening To: Nightwish
Health: In the tube
Need To Catch Up On TV: Drastic

Being sick sucks, period.
I've been half dead for about twenty four hours and it is awful. The timing couldn't be worse. We're in the thick of rehearsals for South Pacific and our first choir concert is in two days. And I hate sleeping all day, it makes me feel like a blob. While I do enjoy sleeping in, this is the exact opposite of enjoyment. But this does give me some time to rest up and get my head together before going through another rush of extracurriculars, and to update this blog!
I love webcomics, they are awesome. They don't even have to be the funny kind, dramatic ones are great if done well. Recently, I've been reading comics at snafu-comics.com. Their more prominent artist, Bleedman, has some truly excellent work. He has a pair of comic series that are basically enormous crossovers between popular cartoons injected with a good dose of dark themes and spectacular writing, and they are AWESOME. These are Grim Tales and the PPGD. Truly amazing, though it's probably the geekiest thing I've ever read in my life.
Now for something simply silly!
Star Wars Uncut is a fan recreation of the original Star Wars, but divided into fifteen second clips that anyone can pick up and make. Each is intended to be a reconstruction of the moment in question, but it can be made in any way. Any film style, no matter how low budget/quality, can and will be accepted to the site, and once they have the whole movie done they'll put it together for people to watch. It'll be the most schizo movie ever, but it'll definitely be fun.
My brain is in jumbles from being sick so I'll stop here.



I've decided to add a couple of tags to the start of each of my posts describing my current status.

Listening To: Assorted Soundtracks, A Teens
Most Active Site Of The Moment - snafu-comics.com
Outlook Of The Day - Slogging Through

Ugh, I'm just so tired right now. But this is really the best time for my posting cuz I'm typically brimming with all the stuff in my brain while physically drained. I wonder if there's a reason for that? Kind of like the law of motion, "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction"? Idunno.
This musical is going to kill me, I just know it. I'm way behind on my TV shows and in serious need of some downtime. Only a few more weeks, and once All State is over things'll lighten up.
I like Glee, but it's not exactly the most appropriate city. Kind of a guilty pleasure. But one thing that always bugs me about it is that, being a student of the performing arts, I always think "Dang, this is the most dysfunctional group ever." It's good TV though. :)
I love crossover fanfics, I do, I tend to write them as well. I have a couple of big projects in the works right now, but I'm not gonna tell you about them or else my creative juices will drain faster than oil down a wet drain. That drains quickly right? You'd think so.
But I'll tell you this, they both have more than ten sources, yeah.
Gonna go read more crossover fanfics!


Football and Firefox

Football is not my cup of tea...usually.
The Super Bowl and maybe my school's Homecoming game are about the only times I ever take interest in the sport, but last night my more sports-oriented relatives came to visit and took the male members of my family to a football game. I did not have high hopes for the game. But after about the first quarter I was up singing the fight songs and stomping my feet even more than anyone else in my family. Lets just say I am a very enthusiastic person and leave it at that.
I have a pet peeve. I use Firefox, and I open up a large number of tabs while online. And when I close it down I can save these tabs so I'll get them back when I boot it up the next time I'm on. Sometimes I'll have to go do something else and one of my immediate family members will close it down without saving the tabs. This leaves me to find all the places I was at the next time I'm on.
This drives me up the wall.
I'll probably post more later today.



It's been a few days, so an update should help spruce things up!
My throat has been scratchy, sore, and bugging the crap out of me. It hurts.
Weather outside is freezing, weather inside is HOT, neither is comfortable.
I've been reading around on the internet and have confirmed some suspicions I've had for a while:
Harry Potter fans are insane. Don't believe me? Go here for a list of truly mind-boggling instances of off-the-wall craziness.
...Sorry got lost.
Star Wars has a whole lot of music, so much so that it takes up at least a fourth of my Rhapsody playlist than anything else. And my playlist is over 500 songs. No, really. I'm listening to it right now.
I love webcomics, but one of my favorites is based on Dungeons And Dragons. It's called the Order of the Stick, here's the archive. It may be one of the most dorky things you'll ever see, but I love the stuff.
