It's kind of hard to get a post in by midnight when I don't get home from rehearsal until 11:52 pm. So, I have to cheat the time stamp for the second day in a row. Still, after this post, I have only two Phoctober installments to complete, and then the pressure to post by a certain time will subside. Or it would, if I hadn't signed up for NaBloPoMo as well. Phoctober posts take me a lot longer than a normal post to get together, though, what with all the linking and uploading and what-not.
Wow. Rambly. Looks like the coffee I consumed at the onset of rehearsal has finally kicked in, just when I no longer need it. Hooray!
On Sunday, we got a look at the place where the performances will be for the upcoming show. It was disheartening. The room is very small, and the audience will likely be on the same level as we are, which complicates the sightlines and the blocking somewhat. When one of us sits in a chair, for instance, it may be that we are not visible to everyone in the room.
The lobby is one of the gaudiest things I have ever seen. Every available surface is festooned with memorabilia from comedy of all types. I vacillate between finding it kind of sweet and kind of creepy. There's a level on which I don't understand people who find all comedy funny, just in the same way I am confused by people who find all music worthwhile.
Even weirder was finding out that all of the stuff they have was originally part of a single private collection, kept by one of the owners of the place in his home until the place opened. My first thought was how pleased his spouse must have been to have this stuff out of the house.
Anyway, I grabbed a couple of shots of the walls and such for today's Phoctober. And I'm hitting "publish" at 12:20, which is better than yesterday...
All Phoctober posts from this site.
Absolute Vanilla on open doorways.
Kyklops with an assortment of random Japan.
Taffiny and wet pebbles.
Matthew on paths and mist and mountains.
It isn't too late to join the fun. Just do a photo post, mention Phoctober, and come and tell me about it in the comments.
