Je serai finir!

Ooo la la, French...the language of love. I just wanted to sign off one last time and let you guys all know that I love you., yeah, ok I guess all of you. Joshua and I are formulating a new brand of acting that will forever change the face of theatre/film/geico commercials/sitcoms/greek tragedies. we are the Affleck-Damon combo of the future. Seriously though, glad to be a part of the class, glad to learn so much about what acting really is and is not. Actions and reactions, not 'playing emotions' ;)

Good luck everyone I hope I never see you again


...No I'm not

Max Sings/Chris Croons


I don't think you need to be trained to sing, "regular type music." If you can sing AT ALL you should come out for my show next year. No promises, but if you can carry a tune, you might be perfect.


I would also encourage you to come out for it. I know that you are busy, but if you can make the time and get cast, you might have a great time. Especially in one of my crazdiculous shows.

The final days

I am excited to present our final on thursday. I think it will be exciting to see all the groups go and see how they have improved hopefully on their skits. I am sure we will all do well. In class on thursday i was glad we got to see everyone go. I think that going before helped us all get a better understanding of what we need to do. So good luck everyone. and see you in class on thursday

In the shower I don't really know if I'm any good or not I guessing probably not since i've never had any training.

Really? No whiz-bang or anything?

I can't believe we just had our last class! A part of me just died. But now I'm working on my final, and I know Dave and I were kind of having some trouble in the verb department. So if anyone else is, too, I found a really good site today: . And another piece of advice: don't practice your scene in front of my roommate and friends because it will ultimately lead to your destruction and demise.

finals once again...

another time with finals and another round of them. Cant wait until they are over! Everyone did a great job today during their presentations. I think everyone will do a great job on the final! Good luck on finals, have a great break! :)

Max Julian - You are needed


Do you sing at all? I mean outside of the rap genre.

This class was awesome, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who would care to listen. :)
I have learnt a lot, not only about acting, but also how and at times why people tend to behave the way they do.
I am a little anxious about finals, though I guess all will go well.
All the best with finals !!

Two Fighters Against a Star Destroyer??

So its the last blog and I'm happy for that, but upset we have no more new and exciting skits to do in our class...It's been real, it's been fun, and it definitely has been real fun! Probably one of my favorite classes ever and I know I will be able to use the knowledge I have gained from this class throughout my life and whenever I do skits or lip sync's or eat subway, I know I have Fabio to thank for all that.....Pe@ce out A-town...
Yeah so today I worked on my final script I hope it goes well, I'm kinda nervous but I guess it's what we've been working towards all year. It's soo weird to think how embaressed I was to get up infront of the class at the beginning of the semester now I don't even care I guess if you read this anyone this was the most fun class I ever had it was real cool getting to know everyone I didn't already know.
You know what, it really shocked me to realize it's the last week of classes. Where has the first half gone? I just flys by when your hanging out with friends and having a good time. It all really does go bye faster than anyone realizes. Ask anyone, they'll all say where has the time gone. A lot of things will change in the next couple of years but hopefully we'll still have good friends and and wisdom.
well its the last week of class, and its already half over. This semester has flown by and i feel like i have learned alot from this class. Not just how to act, but how to read people and interract with them. I will take alot from this class to use in the future, and i will greatly miss it next semester.

The final blog

I really enjoyed getting to perform some of my final on tuesday with Hale. It made me realize how rusty i am and how much i miss doing musicals but i just don't have the time to do them so. I'm really glad that i took this class and even though most of the time i felt like everything we were doing was a waste of time it really did come together in the end. I also want to thank all of you guys cause you made the class even more enjoyable and i would like to take a moment to look back on my favorite moment from this semester of when our two classmates were trapped inside a uterus. Pretty sure i came close to peeing myself and of course I have to just say two words... Max Julian... enough said.
class was good on Tuesday.
We hardly understand the nuances of different kinds of sounds that come our way, and that even those sounds convey emotions.
I too had the unfortunate experience of viewing the silent film on the civil war. It goes to show how important it is to develop these skills we have tried to cultivate in ourselves as actors without the faculties of sound! They were really horrible at conveying action and reactions with no words. As Fabio would say, they 'played an emotion.' That said, I am really glad Josh and I got to work on our final in class today, I think it will help us loads. I'm kind of nervous for it, though...

Tuesday Night

I was at my night class tonight and we were watching a silent film made in 1915 about the start of the Civil War. I liked thinking about how acting has evolved in terms of film, but the art has always been the same-dating all the way back to ancient Greece (pretty sure that was it). I thought the film was kind of funny, though, because it looked like these people just filmed it in their backyard, and the addition of text didn't really help me understand what was going on. But just because our audience can actually see and hear us clearly doesn't mean Dave's and my final is a sure thing. Hope everything works out!

finals week

i was glad that i got to work on my final today in class. it really helped me get more of an understanding for what we have to do. i think that with more practice we will do very good on the final!

finals week

next week is finals week and our acting final is next thursday. i hope everyone is ready. i enjoyed watching them in class today. i think jason and chris did the best! :)
we will probley go on thursday since we didnt go yet, but i think were prepared! hope everyone enjoys it!

I took acting for Non-majors and all I got was this stupid blog

So yea, myself and Tim's project is coming along grandly...I feel nervous because we still have over a week to work on it but we really want to make sure that we get it done and get to go in class so that we can get some positive feedback...Watching Dane's and Chelsea do their's and the feedback that they got from it was awesome...I say it is definitely worth a lot to all of us to do our skit and have the Fabster critique it...So I am looking forward to being able to go sometime this week...
I'm looking forward to class tomorrow because I really would like to work on my skit. I think that what we have now is pretty good and I'm looking to get some feedback. On another note, I'm real upset that the Browns lost on Sunday because, lets face it, he got pushed at. Plus the Patriots won. All in all it was not a good week for me as far as sports are concerned.

Monday, December 3, 2007

gotta give some props

i just have to say that Dane was pretty awesome in class on thursday and i can't wait to see the final performance of that skit... I really don't have anything to talk about, i got together with my partner and we got our stuff figured out and im kind of excited for my performance with Hale... im really going to miss fabio's classes on my tuesdays and thursdays because they really were the highlight of my week so i just want to thank him for a great class and a wonderful experience

class thursday

Well me and Chelsey's run through in class on thursday helped alot with my preparation for my final. it was very helpful to hear not only fabio's suggestions but also everyone elses. I hope everyone else can benefit from the inclass sessions like I did.

Umm and yea i shot at my first deer ever on Sat. I missed but it was sweet. : )

Finally rememberd to blog again

So I'm happy that i am finally able to blog again, first off i forgot for a bit, and then i had to reset my password. So I'm back on again and now not lose any more points in class. I am really excited about our final and scared at the same time that i won't be able to provide the emotion i need for the scene. But only time will tell. The Browns lost but there still in the playoff picture so im still confident with them. My other team the Dolphins are still winless and that saddens me, but its ok were still the only team to go undefeated even if the patriots do we were still the first. No team will ever be able to break it. Last night i was remembering the great Paul Brown the only coach to coach at all 3 levels of football. High school, college, and pro. He spent 9 years at my home town high school the Massillon tigers. He posted a record of 80 wins 8 loses, and only 2 ties. He lead up to 6 state championships. He was just a great man and legend.

I was just a kid, but thats what i miss

I went to Wright Patt Air force Museum this weekend and it was awesome. For those of you who don't know about it or have never been, I would look into going to see it. They have four HUGE hangers full of aircrafts from the Wright Bro's first plane all the way to stealth fighter jets. The way it works is you basically go to the aviation evolution because the planes just gradually get sweeter and sweeter. The best hanger is the third one. It has a lot of sweet fighter jets in it. I felt like such a kid walking through the place cause I was constantly like. Look at the sweet gun! Oh look at the missile! I got to sit in the cockpit of one of the fighter jets and it was sweeet. That was the first time I had been there since I was a kid, but i remember going there a few time and getting a model airplane at the gift store when we were leaving, unfortunately I didn't get one this time. Maybe next time.

anyways. Behrooz and I are kicking butt on our final. I'm having a lot of fun thinking of the characters and what the whole scene is about.

I can't believe it

The browns just lost and I've never been so mad watching a football game. Any other day i love watching an offensive line just push back a d-line and run out the clock, but not when it's against the brownies. I couldn't believe it when i heard that a force out isn't reviewable...Anyway me and stuck need to do a little work on our project. I think it'll be good we've got some sweet ideas just needs to be a little tuned up... Tommorrow is the first day of my carreer as a thesbian and i'm pretty excited to try it out still. I'm excited to meet some new people too. Although i love meatheads like Hale, i've always felt i was a little better than my football buddies, because i've always considered myself a little bit of an intellectual...Well as usual, STAY OUT THE PAINT!!
Things are starting to build up and my shoulders are starting to feel it...Anywho-I think our scene went well on Thursday. It's crazy because Dave and I ran through our lines the other night and we pretty much had it down without trying to memorize it so now we just have to add emotion and action. I thought we are off to a good start, though and can't wait to perfect it.

Friday, November 30, 2007

Class was fun yesterday. It was great seeing the others perform, and learning important tips from Prof Polanco for our finals.
So finally, I did meet up yesterday with AJ, and we talked about our charcters and what we wanted to portray, so now its to rehersing.

It's The Final Countdown!

Fabio, I think it's great that you are giving us this much help for the final, and with such an opinion I am dissatisfied with my own preparation--but no worries! Joshua and I shall rise and prevail. Honestly though, you could see so much improvement within the groups that went today pre-Fabio help and post-Fabio help. I think the idea that there is a verb behind each line is a great concept. Also--doing the guessing game was a fun activity as well. Crazy that next week is our last, huh? Kinda sad, kinda spooky, kind of...kinky? You decide.


so the final. i think its good working on it today in class because it shows us what we are doing wrong/right it is also constructive critizism. well i've got a ton of work to do. anyone understand hamlet? well i gotta write that paper! :)
good luck on finals!

Stuff on the Final

I thought in class today it was nice to watch the groups that went do thier skits because it helped me get ideas for our skit. What to do, how to deliver the aciton on each line. Also i thought dane and kelsy did a great job today in class. What a skit lol
I also missed writing for the last class. Tuesday i impressed myself with my improving skills double whiz-bang. When the double game started, i was really apprehensive and overwhelmed by the intensity of the game. The more we play the better i get at it. The last two classes i was in the final 5-6 people, and a few times i was one of the very last people playing. It is awesome
Today was really informative. Once i performed my scene and got a lot of feedback, i feel very confident. I do feel as if i am taking too much control over the scene and i need to talk more with megan to get her views on the project. For those of you who have not done you scene yet, do a little bit of practicing to make sure that everybody is on the same page with the story line. I am really looking forward to the final performance.


I forgot to post for todays class so this post will cover for both, too bad I won't get credit for the one I missed though. When we first got our scenes I thought to myself, how are we going to be able to make a scene out of seeven lines. But, after listening to Fabio talk about the groups that had to present, I relalized that we can make every line mean so much, even to the point where we are presenting a small play almost. This is because we have a story and a reason behind each line that we say. It was interesting to watch the girls today and how their scene kept on developing because Fabio was able to keeping adding to the lines. Not to the story, but to the meaning of each line, like how and why she is saying it.
Class on Tuesday I thought was very hard because so many of the ways we act can be so much like different times of the day unless its really extreme, like 3 am or 6 am or whatever the case may be. Right now though I'm lookin forward to the final and to todays class, peace out suckas!

Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

I definitely agree that this time exercise was a lot more difficult then I thought at first. I guess it is a testament to how different human beings are as creatures that made it so hard to act out something that is a universal behavior at a given time period. I did think it was interesting though that the easiest ones seemed to be around the time people normally eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But yea, it was a fun little exercise and definitely expanded my little brain into a realm which it hasn't delved into in a long time....a long time.

Time of Day

I learned something new from Tuesday class that I think helped me understand acting a little better. When I was doing the "time of day" exercise and I reacted to the situation as the way I would instead of how others would in order to get across the time of day it made me realize that i need to look at things in many different perspectives before actually deciding what to do when I am acting. It makes sense to do things from my own perspective because thats all I know but when I did that it made it difficult for the anyone to know what I time it was. That class taught me to put myself in the average persons shoes and react to situations from that.
Well I just got done watching one of the greatest movies ever made... The Marine starring John Cena. I think it would be really cool if we learned how to do stunts in class. Maybe I'll do some in my final.
I enjoyed Tuesday's class because I never realized how difficult it would be to show what time of day it was. I didn't really know what to do so I was just trying to be as real as possible, Grand Canyon and all. But really I'm also looking forward to practicing my skit. I'm trying to memorize lines and trying to be as real as possible and it's going alright.

Wednesday, November 28, 2007

these last few weeks have gone by fast.. the semester is almost over and it seems like we just got back to school a few weeks ago. The end of the semester is going to be tough, but practicing our final is going to be fun. After this semester its going to be hard not having this class anymore. Its a relief every morning after statistics to come to this class.


I thought class on tuesday was very helpful for me to understand more of our final. When i had to go outside and come back in with chris within two lines you could tell there was more of a story there. So i think the final will be good in showing a story in such short lines. I am looking foward to it. And Carbone if you read this you betta GET OUT THE PAINT when we have the big man game!!!

Tuesday, November 27, 2007


Dave and I were talking about our scene (during our night class, but whatev) and I'm kind of excited to get into it. The thought of creating a whole history between 2 people with just 10 lines or whatever is kind of cool. And like I look forward to class, I'm looking forward to this final. It's my last one, and not to say it'll be easy (because I know it won't) but it's a different type of preparation that'll mellow me out from the rest of finals week.
Class was fun today, it was a lil difficult initially to come up with ideas. Moreover, the varied ideas I had were enacted by three people before I finally went up, so I had to keep changing the time. Whew !!

Anyway, am looking forward to the finals, dunno how am gonna go about seducing AJ :))
And moreover, I have to write reams of paper to be able to seduce him well. What a world !!


the final seems hard. mitch and i got together today to work on it and we couldnt figure out number 6. oh well i guess we'll find out on thursday. everyone did a good job today presenting. hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! :)


the thanksgiving break was very nice. It was nice just to get away from school for a while. I agree with carbone that it seems we have a lot of papers to type up and it seem weird that we would need to. I guess i just dont think about typing up papers for the final scene, but it will help us make our skit better

Final Project

I just want everyone to agree with me how this final project seems like it's a lot of work. A lot of papers are needed to be typed up for this. Way too many papers. Had a sweet break, i've gotta go get an omlet...STAY OUT THA PAINT

Break was nice

Hmmm, break was both pleasant and painful for me. Painful in that I had a ton of work to do most of it was catching up stuff but the ham and turkey were great! My son came home but did stick around much and I found out he has a 1.2 average for the quarter. What a bummer.

The final skit is going to be fun, even if it require a lot of pre-work to do it. I am reminded of something my former boss told me though.... Remember the 7 P's:


See you all this morning.

Final Project

I have come up with some ideas as to what I want to do for my final project. I really like what I've come up with and I haven't really even looked over it to much. I look forward to going through it tomorrow because I want to be able to get a good grasp of how it will go.

Monday, November 26, 2007

tuesday's class

I honestly can't really remember what we did in class on Tuesday....meetings? It's tricky trying to map out a scene without consulting your partners first and having it work out as the scene happens. Luckily we can figure things out with our partners ahead of time for our final (which, by the way, if it was a contest-Dave and I would be all over #1)

thanksgiving break

was not long enough...and as usual i got to do my usual acting of no i really do enjoy your company with some of my family members :D don't get me wrong im thankful that i have my family cause there are kids out there who have nobody, but there are some people in my family, mainly on my mom's side, that don't rub me the right way, my mom's brother and his wife especially. they moved across the state and kind of disappeared for a while and then they come back and wanda accuses me of looking down my cousin's shirt. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!! that was like 3 or 4 Christmas' ago and then they kind of disowned me. I can see my aunt trying to make an effort but its really pathetic and i don't really want to talk to any of them so i just screw on my little smile and act politely towards them until i am out the door. there is just so much going on and im ready for this semester to be OVER.

Turkey Break

Well turkey break went way too fast... I didn't do any hmwk at all over break and now I'm paying for it.

I think our final is going to be a lot harder than I first thought. After the first group did their run through on Tuesday and Fabio had all those suggestions there is alot more thinking that goes into it than I had first thought.

I thought the Star Wars thing was kinda confusing but funny... sorry had to say it : )


I am utterly shocked that Fabio do not like our Star Wars skit featuring Darth Hale. The improv force grip by Max Julian and myself was outstanding.

I'm kidding, I know that we didn't do what we were supposed to do at all. But the dialogue was great.
I am also glad that Behrooz and I were the guinea pigs of the final project. Now we have a step up on all the other groups. So, thank you Fabio for choosing us.

Thursday, November 22, 2007


i just realized that i love thanksgiving a lot, and in class on tuesday i think in watching the group that went will be helpful in showing the groups what we all need to think about. There is a lot we have to consider, so i am lookig forward to the final


thanksgiving break

last day of school and we had class before break. couldnt wait until the class was over because that ment I was done for the day! :)
anyhow.. im looking forward to the final. it seems hard but i know we will all make it through.

happy thanksgiving!

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

I saw part of that Brady Quinn commercial. I missed the beginning and I think I may have missed Fabio. I've been looking for it all night and I can't find it. Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Am looking forward to the finals. But don't like the idea of dissecting our character and place utilization. Wish we didnt have the paper.

Anyways, have a wonderful Thanksgiving all.

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

I am excited about the final. There is a lot more to think about than i thought there would be. I think i have a pretty good idea who my character is and his relationship to the other character. I do not think it is going to be hard for others to figure out our relationship either. There is a good bit of drama in the relationship and it should be good. I have a weird feeling that a lot of people are going to be very serious characters in the final. I do not believe that there is going to by much comedy. With these lines that we have, i feel like it would be hard to make it humorous. good luck to everyone
So i have to make this quick so I can make it to class....But I am excited for the final. I think it is going to be alot of fun and will give us an opportunity to incorporate all the different skills we have learned in the class to a skit we get to perform in front of everyone!
I must disagree with the common opinion about the play last week. I thought it was well performed by the actors, and the songs were pretty good too. Most people disliked the play for different reasons but I thought it was good and i thoroughly enjoyed it. I was impressed by the actors and I thought that with the budget that the theater department had, the set was good.
im kinda nervous about this final because i have to agree with AJ this is all quite sudden. i mean the only thing we did all year was pretend that we were dealing with objects and reacting to other people, places, or things and now out of nowhere we have to write 2 page bios of our characters describing our life story only with the detail that affects the scene and is has to go along with the relation of our partners character. I also feel like my scene limits me because one of my lines is "ok i'm going to continue with my washing now" so i don't really have the freedom of being anywhere because i could be doing laundry or taking a shower or whatever. hopefully me and Jason can pull it off.

I love Backstreet Boys

There is one thing that I really like about our final project and that is the freedom to make everything up except the lines. Its going to be really hard, and i'm not expecting us to be able to do this, but to be able to describe everything that has led to this scene without tell the audience. Such as where we are coming from. What our relationship is to this person. All that stuff is going to be very difficult to convey. I aslo can't wait for break. We all go for so long without any break, people should respect the hell out of us.
Ok well I totally messed up that last attempt to writting a blog so here is my real one. Class on Thursday went well when talking about the musical and all. Since we didnt really do anything pertaining to acting that class, I am going to talk about the Browns and what an amazing win they had this weekend. I about pissed my pants when they actually one a game and had the right calls made for them, it was almost a miracle. I am also very excited for this break that we have coming up for the good old gobble day. It is such a great time of the year to have a break and spend some time with the fam. Well my time is done here and I will see everyone in class later today...


Monday, November 19, 2007

Well I thought that our Thursday class went well. Nothing like basking a play to get everyone's spirit's up. I'm looking forward to rehearsing our play scenes in class hopefully tommorow. But I'm way more excited about Thanksgiving Break. I've probably been ready for it since Halloween.

P.s. Go Browns Amazing win
Last Thursday in class we witnessed a spectacular bash session of The Secret Garden...All things aside I thought it was pretty good. I think I could have done it, however I would have requested to have an entrance coming from a church and an exit headed for a brothel. I think it would have really enhanced the experience. As Megan noted, the Browns game was absolutely nuts! I felt happy, sad, confused, aroused, hungry, embarrassed, and startled all bundled up into one!

Sunday, November 18, 2007


After our discussion of The Secret Garden, I think I've decided that should I ever be in any production, I'm not going to invite AJ to watch it; he'll rip it to shreds. And Dave Stuck won't be allowed to come if one of my children is in a play-he's just mean. On a different note, ADPi semi formal was on Saturday and was a lot of fun, and despite me being insanely tired, I'm watching the Brown's game right now, and I must say: that was some crazy field goal action at the end of the 4th.

THe Secret Garden Discussion

I def liked hearing everyone's opinions about the play. The discussion actually helped me understand the play a lil more and I found out the meaning of some things I didn't know before. I def. didnt have a complete understanding the play but now its a lil clearer. I hope everyone has a delicious turkey break :) I can't wait to eat food yay

Friday, November 16, 2007

I liked hearing everyone's opinions on the play. I personally really liked it. There were a lot more negative comments about the play than i thought there would be. I enjoyed this play much more than "Into the Woods." Also, i think that each night had a different reaction to it. The night i went, the play went by really smoothly and everybody did a great job. Other nights may have not been as good. I know the first night there were problems with the lighting and a few of the other nights there were different actors. I guess that is something that you have to deal with when you are involved in a big production like this one.

Thursday, November 15, 2007

I liked listening to everyone's opinions about the play today. However, I feel if they had read the novel before seeing the play, they would have had a clearer picture as to what was going on.
I enjoyed the play, and felt it was good in the sense that it wasnt supposed to be a professional set-up.

class today

Today in class we talked about the play. i didnt enjoy the play because there was too much singing. i agreed with AJ with most of the stuff he said. otherwise i really enjoyed the first play much better than this. the final seems hard, but i hope we can make it through it! :)
Yes I agree, the snow this morning is awesome! Tuesday was kind of nice because we didn't have class but at the same time I missed not having class because it is usually so fun. The final should be a good time, I really want to do a Star Wars theme but I'm afraid the professor will get pissed off and we will get a bad grade even though it would be serious and we wouldn't be playing to the crowd...But that is about all I have today...Hope the snow start to catch on the ground, love the snow...


okay i was just super excited that it is snowing right now. Its kinda like really wet snow but its still sweet. So yea I'm excited about the final, it should be fun to make up our own who what where and see where it takes us and how different it is than the other group that has the same lines. I'm kinda sad we didn't have class Tuesday, this is actually a class I look forward to just because its so much fun. But I did get to sleep in so I guess that was worth it. : )


I'm not going to lie, tuesday was probably the best day I've had all semester long. Because of the convocation I didnt have any class. I was able to get a lot of stuff done and not have to worry about being at class at a specific time. It's good to have a day off like that during the week because sometimes the weekends get real busy and they dont always seem like weekends. Hopefully it will happen again very soon.

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

no class

i did not mind that we did not have class on tuesday it was nice to get to take a nap for once. about the play i thought it was ok but i was confused, i am sure we will talk about it in class tommorow, and i just finished my paper at about 9:30 so i am glad that is done as well

no class

so no class today.. it was a really nice break from classes since that convocation happened.. thank goodness... i only had one class today which was really nice.
the play i didn't like it. i thought it pretty sucked because i was bored out of my mind and i didnt understand it...
oh well, we'll discuss it in class tomorrow.

Tuesday, November 13, 2007

No Class

Even though I love going to this acting class and it is the class I have the most fun in, I thoughly enjoyed the day off today. It was a well needed break from the everyday classes. I had the opportunity to catch up on some work tha t I needed to get down and to start on the paper that is due on Thursday in this class. I will let you know about how I felt about the play in the paper that way I dont have to write it down twice.

Dead Man Walking

I went for the screening of "Dead Man Walking" today at Bixler, and just couldn't keep my emotions under control. Its a powerful movie, and I guess if some of you plan to audition for it, you must go watch it, if you haven't already.
They will have two screenings tomorrow, one at 3pm and the other at 7pm, both at Bixler 108, the ACN (Ashland Community for Non-violence) office.

i can't believe it's 11 already

I have a stupid paper to write and I'm not done reading the f-ing book. Crap. Anyway-I saw the play Saturday night, and although it wasn't one of my faves, I definitely think the cast was really talented. It's kind of cool to contrast the difference in acting between dramas and musicals. Personally, I like plays better because they're easier to relate to. And I wasn't as good at musicals. So that's my piece for the week.

The play was different

So i saw the play Thursday night, and it was OK but, not what i expected. I saw it when there was a change in the characters, because one happened to get sick. The replacement did a good job under the circumstances. The story line was weird at first because it just immersed you into the storyline without explaining it fully. SO i enjoyed it, but i liked the other play better. Other than that the weekend was good. I went to the AP semi-formal which was alot of fun. But it was also another long night. The Browns lost and that made me mad, they are still better than the Steelers. Check Spelling

no class but I'm still blogging

Okay so i didnt know if I was supposed to blog even though we didn't have class but I am going to anyways. I went and saw the play Friday. It was hard to understand what the story line was at first just because the beginning of the play was mostly singing and my seat was pretty far back away from the stage so it was hard to understand what they were singing about. Other than that I really enjoyed the play and once I understood what it was about, I liked it even more. I thought it was more interesting than the first play I went to.

no class

i am pretty excited that we dont have class on tuesday, because it will give me time to write my paper thats due on thursday. they play was confusing to me at first but then it stratightened out a little. i just wish there would have been them running through doors like carbone and bray, thats funny and they did such a good job

Saturday, November 10, 2007


My personal favorite door scene was when Carbone ran up to the automatic door. That was awesome and very well played. It was like a comedic pause in a very serious moment, however, it was not like he was trying to be funny because that was really what he would have done. Good job Carbone.

I'm really pumped about our final scene because they will be so short and it is going to be very difficult to be able to convey who, what, where and why in that short of time. It will be a great challenge.

Friday, November 9, 2007


i think the final will be a fun time for all of us. Even tho it is short we have to really focus on whats going on, and it will be interesting to see what everyone does, and i agree with carbone they will be a force to be reckoned with, GET OUT THE PAINT BABY!!
I loved the door excercise. It was so challenging, which made it great. I love this class and i'm pretty pumped for our finals. I'm not trying to brag but we all know that me and stucky's final will be a force to be reckonned with, so what i'm trying to say is STAY OUT THE PAINT!!

Thursday, November 8, 2007

I always used to be happy whenever classes got cancelled due to the convocation thingie. But now that our Theater class is cancelled coz of it, I feel really sad.
It is the one fun class I have, and really look forward to.
I am looking forward to our final. I think it will be a good time for everyone to display all their skills that we have learned thus far. We have some good ideas for our situation and Meg and i are gonna whoop some be-hind...
that entering and exiting is hard...
but it was fun... it got old after awhile though...
also im pretty stoked about the final!
mitch and i will be sweet! :)


the blog is not letting me post i hope this works, and the excercise were really hard on tuesday

Entrance and Exit

This activity was pretty tough I thought...It is hard thinking of a scene where you are coming from somewhere and then exiting through a completely different place...Not only is that hard but it is just as hard to create a scene and portray it in a way that the audience can understand it but yet the actor doesn't tell them exactly where they are or blatantly making it obvious through their actions...All I know is this thursday the planets will align and the world will be set right because the true champ is here...


this is the first day of the year where i actually had to buckle down and do work. it was terrible. actually, im not complaining, i've had a really easy time so far this year, stress-free and mermaids everywhere. But i have an interview tommorow, which is going to take some hardcore acting on my part. im gonna have to act like a mermaid and pretend to be a good studious young boy. i'm sure i'll be alright though. dueces.

Door excercise

I really liked the door excercise we did on tuesday. It was probably the hardest excercise I've taken part of so far. It was difficult to show everybody else wat we were doing and where we were coming from without the use of any props. I mean I started off not doing well and not being able to show what I wanted everyone to see but I think I eventually got better; at least I hope I did.

Ohh Yea

Well I have no reason for being happy, I just am. I have a feeling that class on Tuesday has a bit to do with it. I was laughing so hard just because class was so fun and entertaining. Thursdays class I hope will bring me the same anount of fun.


I don't really know what to write about for Tuesday. I didn't get a chance to do the last exercise yet, but I'm on to a good idea if we do it again tomorrow. I like the add-in exercises, though. I find myself jumping in more often and more willingly than I was at the beginning of the semester. I'd really like to be in an AU production before I graduate, but timing right now's an issue. But I'd be so pumped if someone from the class got in. Good luck, guys!

class tuesday

if i could think of one line that would sum up my entire semester in this acting class it would have to be "FBI! POP,POP,POP!" i almost pissed myself. i have to say that this is and probably will be one of my most favorite classes i will ever take. I am looking forward to my entrance and exit exercise tomorrow. I also can't believe i got eliminated from double whiz bang yesterday. I have never been eliminated before so props to whoever got me.

enterence and exit acivities

I likes the entrance and exit activities. I think it is weird doing nothing in the middle "neutral" area. It hard to show where you are leaving from and where you are going without something in the middle to display whats going on. But, I think it is a useful activity because in a real scene, everybody has to enter somehow and exit somehow and try to make it as realistic as possible.

my entrance and exit

I know i haven't gone yet but i'm pretty positive that ya'll will be impressed. I called into max's radio show i was listenin to it in my car on my way to wal mart, and i gotta say i'm very impressed so props julian.
Stay out the paint

Some things

Our exercises are going in a great direction. Adding in improv take everything to a whole new level because we now have to be able to feed off of what the other person says are does, despite how ridiculous it may be. I believe the key to be able to be good at this is too completely block out the audience. You have to acknowledge them because when they laugh you have to be able to stop and then pick up right where you left off. But to be able to become the character and embrace your surroundings, you have to block out the audience. If you are always waiting for the audience’s reaction then you are not focused on the scene itself.
Well, today's class was crazdiculous, esp the part where Bill entered as a small crazy kid... n then Max the FBI agent...
I had a great laugh then, and just cldnt stop... thinking of it, makes me want to laugh more and more.. wish we'd hv a video clip of this one :))
good job guys...


todays class was fun, i liked how the scene could just change instantly as soon as another person came up and said something differently. but on the other hand, it made things more complicated. speaking of complicated, the entrance and exit this was hard. very hard. but we'll get through it. oh and this snow is rediculous... i cant wait until summer when it is going to be warm again! i hate this cold weather!

short today

It's interesting to watch everyone's compfort level go up and up. Double whiz bang is very confusing, I was amazed that I lasted until the end. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the skits today.
I really think class is going great just like everyone else has said...It's fun, entertaining, and nice because it helps me wake up in the morning...It is somewhat annoying though when people purposely try to be funny just to be funny when they are up doing skits, because I think it is true that pure humor comes out when the audience thinks that the actor is truly portraying him/herself seriously that way and it's all the more funnier in that sense because you realize they are not playing to the audience but playing themselves....anyways that's all I got, secret garden was good but that kid actor couldn't find a note if it jumped up and bit him in the butt...

Monday, November 5, 2007


I believe class is going great. I feel that it is still getting better as the year progresses. Even though people are not trying to be funny, it always ends up being pretty darn hilarious. It makes my days turn into great days just because of how much I laugh during the time of that class.
I think me and max are by far the best improv performers, so untill someone pulls off an amazing performance, we will remain on top, looking down upon the rest of you. I'm really enjoying class more and more everyday, and I'm learning to appreciate acting more and more.

Class Tuesday

Im excited about having class tommorow. I really enjoyed the drill we did when we had to come up with everything on our own. It allowed us to show our creative side so that was fun. I hope that we can do it again during class on tuesday. And in case you missed it Browns won in overtime against the Seahawks. 5-3 baby!!!!

Some things

First off, I'm sorry for missing class Megan.
Second of all, I hope that we get to do our skit tomorrow in class because I think it will be fun. I think it will be really hard to have to improv and be concious about all the invisible objects at the same time. Hmmm, what else. Blood Diamond is an amazing movie just so you all know. And if you have not seen it, I highly recommend it. Thats all I got.


Even though my partner was really cool and decided to not show up to class on Thursday (just kidding, AJ) I think my sister had a good time. It was kind of weird because I was thinking about how I would have to act in front of her, and I got a little nervous. I don't know if it's just because it's Beck and she knows me so well, or if it's the thought of having a real audience besides classmates-either way, it was odd I was worried at all because I've done plays before-in front of an audience with strangers and my fam. I shouldn't be afraid of my little sister, anyway, but as you guys saw (or most of you *cough* AJ) she outgrew me like, 10 years ago.

good week end , and classes are driving me crazy

So this weekend was good and a long night Friday night, but on Saturday it was just a lazy night. I got to go down with Phi Kappa Psi to do community service and paint the inside of a house it was alot of fun. I can't wait to do my scene it will be great. Of course wiz bang is still one of the best games to do in the morning. Class scheduling is driving me crazy the school isn't offering me anything in my major next year its killing me. Well i can't wait for class tomorrow and the browns won and are 5 and 3 a half game behind the steelers.


i too agree with anthony i cant wait to move on and get these floorplans done, i think this is preparing us well for our finals and i cant wait till we start those. GET OUT THE PAINT!!!

whatup homies?

Hey everybody, i'm pretty excited to get these floor plan things out of the way, even though they're fun i'm ready to do something else awesomer. Stay out the paint!

I think the skits we have been doing in class are really showing how much we have learned and it gives us an opportunity to use all of the lilttle activities we did just focusing on single aspects of acting and putting them all into effect at once. It is a lot harder than just doin that simple activities that focus on one thing but the skits are very beneficial especially in preparing for the final. I think everyone is doing a good job so far

The Secret Garden

I went tonight for the musical, and really enjoyed it a lot. It was a totally different genre than the play we saw earlier. The musical made the novel come alive.

skits 2

i thought the skits in class on thursday were pretty good. When fabio said not to say what object your talking about, i didnt even think about it that i was saying it, i was just having a conversation with dave, but i guess i did do too much telling instead of just reacting to what was going on. But i hope to continue thses skits.

Acting for Non-Majors on Facebook !!

Hey folks, I was wondering if it would be a good idea to start a group of acting for non-majors on facebook, that way we could interact even more than we do here.
Awaiting your suggestions.
Have a lovley weekend.
I enjoyed watching all the skits today. And I felt Bill and Mitch did a really good job, the conversation just flowed and they complemented each other quite well.
Improvisation is good, but I was wondering what happens when actors get these pages of dialogues and they have to be true to it. Must be difficult I guess.

our scene

our scene was sweet. i enjoyed doing it and i thought it went fairly well. mike and i were thinking about how it would be better off going first, that way you get it over and done with and you have nothing else to compare to. i think i will try to start doing that way...
glad this week is about over, Thursdays are nice.. Friday classes suck because of the 730am class.. but i guess thats nothing compared to the weekdays mornings...


I love improv. Im so glad that we're doing it again. Bray and Max were hilarious. I cant wait to go today. I really think that Improv is probably the best part of acting because there are no scripted lines and you are just using your god given abilitys


i think the skits we are doing are very fun. they are fun but yet we have to make sure we touch all the objects in our skits. And we have to make sure the objects are the same size and height. i really enjoyed the first two skits. Max and brays was pretty good, and i thought they did a good job of making sure they went to each object. They flowed very well with their objects in their skit. I am looking forward to watching the other skits today!


So i have determined that god has been hazing me for some reason lately. I have so much homework to do and i still haven't gotten the results of my blood tests yet and i would like to because i would love to know why i feel like $h!t constantly no matter how much i rest i get or how much I eat or drink. My dad is on the verge of losing his job which possibly means us moving to Toledo and i don't want to move to Toledo. So then i get a phone call from my mom this morning at 7:26am and i look at the clock from my bed and im like WTF. so i lay there and let it go and she doesn't leave me a voicemail and so i get curious. I get up and use the bathroom, take out my retainer, and pick up my cell and call her back. She answers and i go whats up mom and she says are you sitting down. WOW I JUST LOVE THOSE PHONE CALLS! >:\ so after my heart stopped for like a minute i was like ok im sitting. she goes on to tell me about how my dog candy (who i had since i was 10 years old) got hit by a car and was killed last night. Im thinking to myself can things seriously get any worse. My brother was a wreck and didn't want to go to school i could tell my mom had probably been crying all night. My father i guess hadn't said a word and just wanted to be left alone and he has his court case against the police department tonight and i just felt so bad because i am so close to a breakdown right now that i sounded and felt like i didn't really care. i mean i really do and im sure when i go home and she is not there i will break down but im so dead right now i can't stand it. Im really looking forward to class today and im hoping that max julian will put on a wonderful performance because i need something to cheer me up for god sakes. so if you guys see me you know flash a smile, say hey, or just ask me how things are going because i really just need people to give me some positive support right now.
So yes I agree with you all, the new wizzbang double trouble attack combo is truly crazediculous...The scenes were also a blast to do and I had a lot of fun doing ours...But I beg you, please don't give me any credit for my acting prowess. It was easy for me to act like I was having an affair with Miss Dana...she is such a tiger "reeeeeeeer" Haha, Im just but seriously...Also I thought it would have been funny during Max and Bray's skit if when they brought up the ADPi's gone wild thing that Max would've said that that one has no good-looking girls in it or all the girls in that one are prude's...I dont know, that would have made me smile...Can't wait for the upcoming scenes, I'm sure you all will do superfluous jobs......
Double whiz bang was totally nuts. Never knew that the whiz could get you insane in the membrane like dat. Anyways, I thought that Tuesday's class was hilarious. The sitcom type scenarios were awesome, especially Bray's and Max's. It's crazy how much it can add to a scene when one of the characters wants something that is hard for them to get, like when Fabio told Bray to act like he wanted to watch the movie too. Totally crazdiculous.

meanwhile, at 1 in the morning...

Alright, all I have to say is that ADPis Gone Wild is pure fiction. At least there's no documented proof that I know of. And I'm really pumped to bring my little sister to class tomorrow. She's basically my alter ego and says all the stuff I'd like to, but I would get in trouble for. Right now we're capping off Halloween by watching White Noise after our fricken 2.5 hour drive back from Marietta....

Wednesday, October 31, 2007


Well hello... It is Halloween, the day of the dead... This day is represented by the most terrifying creatures ever to enter our minds and threatened our lives... Each year, the spirits of the dead walk upon us in our ignorance and feast on our souls... The only thing that can stop them now is the crow... the symbol of death... the creator of fear... feasting..
This new project that we are doing with our partners is pretty cool. I like being able to design our own scenes and use props and stuff. I feel like the class is really going to pick up from this point on. This partner project is going to allow us to use all of the stuff that we have learned in the same scene. After watching a few people do their scenes, i feel like its going to be harder to combine all the skills than i originally thought.

mapping it all out

so yeah i enjoyed mapping out the scenes that we are going to be working on. It was alot of fun so far and i think the people that went already did a great job! Mike and I are not until number 7 so we have some time yet, but that means we have to compete with all the others! Well good luck guys at the scenes tomorrow! We'll do doing ours also! :)

Tuesday, October 30, 2007


I suck at blogging and it is why i have a low A. I'm pretty upset about this, but it is my own fault for not being responsible enough to consistently blog about nothing. Don't get me wrong, I love this class, but I do not like how blogging has affected my grade so much.

This class is getting great because we are starting to improv a lot. Josh, Anthony, and Dane were hysterical today, as well as Brey and Max. Max is a hell of an impover. I have seen almost every episode of Whose Line is it Anyway so hopefully my improve skillz are up to par with Max and Brey.

Double wizzbang

Wizzbang is nothing but a gateway drug. After awhile wizzbang doesnt do it for you anymore, next thing you know you're into ker-plupes, curveballs , and booms!. Then once those don't do it for you anymore you get into double wizzbang and soon enough you're playing lyin on a street corner asking for change just to play more wizz bang. I don't know if that made sense to anyone else but i feel closely to that. By the way i ruled at double wizzbang big deal
peace, love, and boom max

Anthony Carbone

Thetar 214 rocks !!

The Acting for non-majors class is really cool, because it is interactive and informative. The other classes seem so dull and boring in comparison to this one. I mean all we do is sit and listen to the Prof going on and on about something or the other, and we do not even know at times the name of the people around us. On the other hand, in this class, we perform together and do crazdiculous things like whiz-bang, pulling out imaginery stuff from things that do not exisit. Its awesome to be able to be creative rather than just analytical.


Halloween is a lot of fun because you get to dress up and act crazy and with a uniform on no one will know who you are...It seems like it is a lot easier to make a fool of yourself when you know that you have some sort of barrier that protects you from the judgement of others...But with the comfort level that a mask or costume brings it enables you to act a little stranger or weirder than a person is more accustomed too...
halloween is probably the best holiday of the year. There were so many cool and creative costumes this year, for example, i saw someone who was a breathalizer, the 300 spartans, edward scissor hands, among others. We need to play more double whizbang because its the coolest thing in the world.
First of all, I am peeeed off that I didn't get to experience double whiz bang on Thursday. It sounds very intriguing. And on another acting related note, I just watched the movie Transformers and I am pretty sure that they would fail Acting for Non-Majors. They seriously didn't do anything at all that we talk about in this class, that and the fact that I still picture Shia or whatever his name is as the eccentric young fellow that we all know and love from Even Stevens. But one thing that I did give them credit for is that they had to react to the transformers and pretend that they were there, unless those actually weren't computer animated and they flew them in from central casting at Planet Wehavecrazymutatingcyborgcreatures...

Class rules

first i'd like to point out how many people didnt show up the day after fabio gave us a freebe i thought that was funny. But beyond that i was having the time of my life with was amazing. I dont remember what it was called when u kicked the ball but watching max going goal was soo worth it. And Bill's double block was pretty damn clutch. So basically it was all crazdiculous

wizz bang

so yeah i dont remember if i blogged or not.. so here it goes once again if i already did..
wizz bang was sweeet especially the elimination round even tho i got out! haha.. well hopefully tommorow willl be interesting!

Did it work?

I had a wickedly busy weekend - three photoshoots in two days! Saturday was a 10 hour marathon while Sunday I had two 6-hour shoots. Now I have only about 500 photos to sift through (after throwing out the garbage!)

But I was thinking about how simmilar acting and modeling really are and how the techniques we've learned in class have translated into my being better able to communicate exactly what I want from the models. I guess the biggest difference is that in modeling you play to the camera and in acting you ignore it.

Anyway, when you are on a shoot you need to create an illusion, not too dissimilar to acting.

Well here it goes, I am pressing the publish button.... hope it works this time....this is getting frustrating.

Whiz Bang

I completely agree with Jason. I am amazing at Double whiz bang. No but seriously that is completely ridiculous. The best part was definately when we got Fabio out. He was definately stunned to say the least. Lookin forward to another awesome game of it.

whiz bang

i love whiz bang, especially double whiz bang, it is my favorite game ever to play, and bill is amazing at it, cant wait to play it again

i'm waiting for Life of Ryan to start!

First off: I had an awesome weekend starting with Chapter Presents on Thursday, Date Party on Friday and Phi Psi semi on Saturday. Basically, I saw half the class 3 days straight. Thursday...all I have to say about class is that I suck at double-whiz bang. Awesome at the regular version, but whatev. BUT Bill and I totally rocked it at partner work. Hedge clippers? I mean, c'mon. I finally had a crazy idea that worked out. Looking forward to tomorrow! P to the S: my besties wanted me to write that we now have new nicknames courtesy Casper the Friendly Ghost: Stinky, Stretch and Fatso. I know it's totally not relevant but they were mad I didn't write it the first time.
Last week from Thursday till Saturday i was at a conference for my major in Columbus. Included in this conference was a lot of presentations of new research. People would go up in front of everybody, wearing their nice cut straight suits and lecture about their new research. It was interesting to me how boring some of these people were. Many of them talked in very mono-tone voices, very limited hand motions and movement, lack of emotion. I think that if they did add some emotion and some action into their presentations, it would make it a lot more interesting. It was then and there that i decided that if i were to ever present research, i would do it and have some fun with it. I would use a lot of the things that i have learned in this class too. Learn to think on my feet and play off of the audience's reactions. For these reasons, this class is important to me.
This weekend was amazing. We had our semi-formal for our fraternity and I had a blast. Everyone looked as if they had a great time. That is all you can ask for with an event like this. Another reason it was great is that the Browns won their game on Sunday afternoon. There is very few things that get me more excited then when the Browns win, well that might be a lie. I am also looking forward to class on Tuesday because we are getting our grades and I am really happy about that.
I just wanted to post about how good of acting I thought everyone who went to see AU chapter presents saw if you went. There were some crazy dance moves, scantily clad men and some live music. It was real cool. I also just thought Id let everyone know I went out and bought some playdough and if you want to you can come over to my room and practice pulling stuff out of it.

class and the weekend

So whizbang has taken a new level of skill to play with the introduction of two things at one time. Its really crazy and i was one of the first ones out because i just didn't know where the two things were at the same time. It was hilarious to see people play it though, the faces they make and gestures. The weekend was a great time our fraternity had a semi formal which was a blast. I danced my butt off which i haven't done in a long time. I really enjoyed it, it was one of the best times i have had in a while. I hope my date had fun she said she did, and i don't think i was boring lol. The next day we had club soccer game which was our last one, and despite how tired we all were because have the team are brothers of Phi Kappa Psi. So we were all out real late we won the game with a final score of 3-2. So that made my weekend a great dance and a win to end the season on a good note. Now i have to concentrate on Club tennis we just had a match vs. The Ohio State and I didn't do good personally. It was also the same day as semi formal so my date and I had to rush back from Columbus to attend the dance, because she also plays club tennis.


Well this weekend was fun. I went to the haunted reformatory in Mansfield on Thursday night. Not so much scary but fun. Then Saturday after beating Findlay I went to a halloween party. it was a good time.

Well I hope class is fun tomorrow. I never don't have fun when I go so I guess I expect it to be. See ya there

Thursday, October 25, 2007


class today for me was the most fun i have had in a while, whiz bang was amazing today, the funniest one we have had yet, we are all getting so much better at that game, and i love how carbone just yells and runs. As for the excercises i think working in pairs is more effective for us because we can feed off one another, and we do it well i think. So i am looking forward to next class to keep working on the substance excercises

the day...

today in class. what did we do? oh yes partners and the slime... that was interesting. it was especially interesting to see how the partners interacted with eachother with the slime. it was defintally like a mirror exersize on how we had to mimic what the other people were doing. it was cool though, and i also liked the exersize how we had to continue what the other person was doing. i think it would of been more affective though if we were put into groups.
Class was fun today, especially as we had to deal with the substance in two's. But the best part was the whizz-bang game because it went both ways, it was really confusing but amusing as well.

I am waiting for next wednesday to see the students dreesed up all wierdly in their Halloweens best or should i say worst :))
I love this chilly weather...It's so nice that it is actually seeming to be fall again...I just got back from giving a tour and it was great walking around in this weather...Last night my friend and I were watching the show whose line is it anyways' and it reminded me of our class...Noticing how they use props and other things and how funny their improvs were was a first for me...I mean, I've always known how funny they were but I never noticed how good they were with imaginary props...It was interesting to see how they interacted with each other with the imaginary props...That's all I got...


Thank goodness its thursday, this week hasnt been too awful bad for me. it was actually kinda of relaxing but I'm just glad its almost over. But the sooner tomorrow is over the sooner the next week full of everything to do will come. Oh well thats life I guess. Yea Tuesday's class was fun, I feel bad that Dave didnt understand what to do atfirst but he got the hang of it. haha

Let's go Eagles... Beat Findlay = D


So class on Tuesdday was quite funny. I thought it was great seeing everybody try and pull their object out of the floating mass of blobness. I about peed my pants when AJ brought out a horse and then galloped into the sunset with it. Well I hope that tomorrows class is just as exciting. I seriously look forward to this class to lighten up my week, and so I get some time to actually relax and have fun with what I am doin.

Crazy+Ridiculous =====

Tuesday was fun, when we were first asked to pull out things from the substance, and later to play with the imaginery goo, I do not know why, but I was constantly reminded of Robin Williams in Blubber.
Hope to continue with such CRAZDICULOUS stuff in class.

A few Things4

The thing we do in this class get stranger and stranger as we go along. Pulling things out of a substance that doesn't exist except for in our own minds is pretty crazy. My substance is like cotton balls, clouds, and....well, its like the clouds in Aladdin, when they are on the magic carpet ride and they make the cloud into a swirl. That’s what my substance is like. Its not messy or sticky, but it has volume to it. So, you can't just run through it because it doesn't just blow by, you have to push your way through it. Anyway, I could have used a relaxing period last class. I had a pretty late night previously.


I wish we were doing more improv skits. I really like those skits. There alot more fun when you have to think abou stuff off of the top of your head and it really felt like we were doing something. The excercise we were doing on Tuesday wasnt very fun. I kinda felt like we took a step backwards.


tuesday in class was interesting to say the least. i never saw anybody doing that weird stuff like pulling things out of the goo. it was interesting to see how different people had different reactions to the goo and what they were pulling out. but i especially liked walking through the goo the other day that was pretty sweet.


In class tuesday was interesting to see everyone react different to their substance, everyones substance was different and that was nice too see. it was interesting to see how everyone used their substance also, how they played with it, like putting it on as a coat. the first excercise was harder because you actually had to see the object.

not titled

So I'm having a decent week i guess, and i really enjoyed the exercise where we took a random object out of the gel or whatever you thought it was in your own mind. It was different to try to imagine what it would be like to pull it out by simulating what it would be like in your hands. Even though the object wasn't there. So i hope to do it again and Mable elaborate on it. Plus this weekend is semi formal and I'm really excited about it. I can't wait to put on a suit and tie and just have fun. Then our last regular soccer game is on Sunday and i hope to go out with a bang and win. So I'm just looking for a good Thursday i guess. So come out and support chapter presents and club sports.


So non-Greek classmates: tomorrow night is Chapter Presents (Upper Convo, 9:30) and a good opportunity to see us Greeks make fools of ourselves (I can personally attest to that because I seem to be the designated lame-costume-girl in ADPi). And mabes we'll be applying some stuff learned in class, but I think Fabio would be embarrassed of us if we gave him any props for what will go down tomorrow. But that's just on my behalf. I also like how I use the blog as a plug, but I couldn't think of anything else to write.

Tuesday, October 23, 2007

For some reason, i just couldn't grasp the concept of taking objects out of mid air and manipulating them. Fabio said that i think very analytically, and that is true. I am good at science stuff, but in some cases when it comes to abstract thought, it's difficult for me to grasp the concept. I also thought it was interesting when he talked about how people create emotion by reacting to situations. After I thought about it, it made a lot of sense.
I really wished that the exercise we did on Thursday we actually did today....I really could use a break today because I am just not feeling very well today...But yes, Thursday was an amazing class and it really was relaxing and well needed....This weekend was actually interesting because I got to use my acting skillz at Cedar Point...My friends and I went there to volunteer and help out Friday and Saturday at the park....Both nights I had to sell lightsabers for the park while walking around with a little baggy...I had to act crazy and fun and make a total fool of myself to get people to buy but it was a lot of fun...I put on an "act" for people to get them to buy things and apparently my zaniness was up too par because of all the sellers' I sold the most so that was a pretty crazy weekend...And my friend did the same thing one night and only sold 4 lightsabers, 2 on his own. His name was Jason Metze, he wears work boots...

a few things3

I just tried to post and I got rejected and i'm not going to write what i just wrote again

i love relaxing

Thursdays class was the best class ive ever been in. it was like gym class in elementary, something that everyone liked and looked forward to. i was so relaxed i think i drifted out of consciousness because i didnt recall any of the things fabio told us to think about. Anyway, i hope we do that again, or every remaining class. im looking forward to seeing how i act differently during our excercises while trying to be as relaxed as possible.

this weekend

So I went home this weekend and it was probably one of the most boring experiences I have haven been a part of. Dont get me wrong I like seeing my family and all but I come from a real small town that doesnt even have a Walmart, so you can imagine how boring it really is. I just dont enjoy going home very much. But yea

pumpkin patch

this weekened I got to go to a pumpkin patch. it was fun. I got lost in a corn maze for 3 hours, it was ridiculous but fun. And all I got for it was a lil candy bar but just being outside and in the fall weather was amazing. and everyone knows how much I love the fall so yea. i also got a pumpking its green, my favorite color : ) and i got to drink hot apple cider. it was awesome. okay thats all i got see yall tomorrow

class on thursday

i really enjoyed Thursday's class. i had been so stressed lately with my brother being hospitalized homecoming weekend when he hurt himself skating and then my dad who is a police officer is about to loose his job because his diabetes is screwing up his feet and they don't think he can do the job anymore. to add to that all the classes and homework, exams, and all of the stuff i have to do with my chapter and being an RA is beginning to take its toll. I was extremely stressed out and i really needed Thursday's class. im surprised i was even able to relax. and the worst part was that i hold most of my tension in my neck and back so when we had to tense those areas of our bodies it was really painful but it felt good to get it out. I hope we can do that soon or at least our last class before finals.


I just want to say that Thursdays class was amazing. I really needed a break out of my hectic life that Ashland University has taken over. Although this week is not as bad I could use another class like that in the near future. It was just really nice to actually take some time and think about yourself for once. I rarely ever get the time to do this on a weekly basis. I will try to keep the that I experienced when that class was over with me for this entire week. If I can do this, I will end up having another great week here in Ashland.

First off-thanks to all who showed up for our cornhole tournament! I think we made about $350 for the Ronald McDonald House, which is awesome. I really enjoyed class on Thursday because last week was kind of hectic for me, and it looks like this week may be on repeat. But it was a good kick off for my weekend because Saturday I hung out with my Dad all day for our Father/Daughter Day and had a really great time. So I'd like to think I had some carry-over positive energy from class that fueled my weekend.

Friday, October 19, 2007

The class on Thursday was awesome. It makes a lot of sense that the more comfortable and relaxed you feel, the more likely that you can react and act better. It goes along with the same principle that people usually act totally differently around their good friends and family than people that they have just recently met. Around friends and family, you are totally relaxed and comfortable. Being totally relaxed and comfortable in front of an audience will allow the actor to act differently. Thursday really relaxed me and i felt great for the rest of the day. Just lying there with my eyes closed, i forgot where i was on the floor in the room. That was pretty sweet...

Thursday, October 18, 2007

Meditation is a pretty powerful tool. In high school we used to use meditation in wrestling. I remember we would do something really similiar to what we did today, and we'd imagine wrestling our opponent. At the end of the meditation my forearms, were cramping, i was sweating up a storm, and my heart was beating faster than it ever has before. I guess it's because our brain doesn't distinguish something we really imagine mentally and something we do physically. Basically, i love doing that meditation stuff, and class was pretty kick ass today.

today's class

Today's class was awesome. The relaxation exercise we did, was a great destressor. Twas something that most of us need once in a while, but in today's fast-paced world we hardly get time to ourselves. So I am glad for the time we spent in class today.
Imagining the place I feel most safe, really made me feel happy. However, the beach part of it caused me some stress though, coz of my own personal thoughts which I could not help dwell on. But I am glad they surfaced, and have now passed on, hopefully to never come back again.


that meditation today was relaxing. jason even fell asleep and i think others did also. it was hard not to fall asleep! it was nice to actually lay down and not think of anything but yourself for 30minutes. it was great because it was a really stressful week so far. i'm so glad the weeks almost over and it will be friday soon! even though i really dont get a break friday, saturday is looking good!

Todays class = D

So yea I'm a couple hours late on my blog for today but I am happy I waited because now I can talk about how amazing today's class was. It was something I'm sure a lot of us needed. A period of relaxation and meditation. That was honestly the best thing that has happened to me this week. Going into that class and just imagining being somewhere with no worries or stress and picturing a place with someone you love, nothing could get better than that and I needed that time to just let my body go and not worry at all. I hope we have more classes like that, it was very helpful for me, and something I enjoyed a lot!!!

Okay Go Eagles... Kick Ferris State's butt


Yes, our class on tuesday was a well needed change of pace I thought too. It was interesting to hear others opinion on parts of the play and roles portrayed by the actors, especially the lead male role. It seemed that for the most part people agreed with the fact that he was not the best man for the job....but it was interesting to hear that some didn't feel the same and thought he wasn't that bad....But yea, it was definitely a welcomed change of pace and I enjoyed being able to analyze the play using my newly acquired phenomanal cosmic powers of play analyzation. Pe@ce out...

Tuesdays class

I liked our class on tuesday because it was good to hear what everyone else thought about the play. It was kind of shoking when everyone agreed that the lead actor wasnt all that great, because i just thought it woul be me but it wasnt apparently. It was a good class but im looking forward to thursday's class because we get to act again. Go tribe
I enjoyed our talk about the play on Tuesday. I thought it was a nice change of pace from our regular things. It also gave us an opportunity to apply our knowledge of what WE have learned to what actual people do when the act.
One day in class, i think it would be neat to learn about all the lighting, curtains, sets, costumes, and all the things that make up a show. I've been behind the scenes of a play, and there is so much that goes on with sound, music, lights and everything. I think it would be cool to learn how they are doing the set for secret garden and stuff. Thats all for me...
i don;t know how i felt about the male lead. I agree that the relationship between to the main leads was very awkward. it reminded me of those people who are in a relationship just for the sake of being in a relationship and one person is stringing the other along. I hated not doing exercises in class on tuesday. i understand the importance of talking about the show but i don't think we really needed to use the entire hour and 15 minutes i mean we just wrote a paper about it. things are looking up a little bit for me i got a great grade on my history midterm and that really made my week, but i think that is it for me tonight. see ya'll in class!

what is goin on??

so i was really schocked that we didnt do any exercises on tuesday but talking about the play was good. it was a good change from what we usually do. it was interesting to hear everybodys reaction to the play. i really liked the play and thought it was good. and apparently no one really likes the male lead lol

Things are looking up

well class was really fun even though we didn't do any exercises. I really enjoyed talking about the play. Well in my life anyways life is getting better not as much work this week so I'm happy. The Indians are one game away from the world series and that is just fantastic. My event at the Phi Kappa Psi house is tomorrow and I'm really nervous and excited to be running the event. Right now I'm watching Wall Street and forgot how good a movie is really is. Well i hope class is fun tomorrow and its going to be Thursday one day closer to Friday.

for tuesday

So I was a bit bummed when we didn't do any exercises during class on Tuesday, but having a discussion about the play wasn't bad. I felt terrible for the lead male because apparantly half the class wants his head on a platter. I didn't think he was that bad-he showed some difficulty expressing emotion but he got the lead for a reason. Maybe I'm sticking up for him a bit because throughout high school I've seen some bad acting. BAD. But it's whatever. See you all tomorrow!

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

I am currently watching the indians game and I am doing this during a commercial. I am going out on a limb for this, so I am going to make this short. Class was great today, I shuold have said more, but everything I thought about the main guy actor was said, and that is that I did not like his performance at all. I felt his transformation to emotions were awful and not nearly as good as the other actors. Ok the game is back on so I gotta go.
It was wonderful to know what other students thought about the play.
I agree that Nick's acting wasnt up to the mark, but then it wasnt a professional play and we are no one to criticize, I feel, coz we ourselves are just beginners. But then again, we can learn frm others mistakes.

My hellish week

I really want to talk about what an aweful week this week will be for me. Normally in football games i'm really good at getting the opponent angry and to do something stupid. This week my acting just wasnt up to par. Everytime i did something cheap and my opponent reacted negatively i would act like it hurt and was really bad but i didnt get a personal foul call. Later in the game i got kicked out for trash talking. Apparently our coaches dont like it when we get kicked out for trash talking because now i'll probably have to do 1000 eagle reminders(eagle reminders suck). So basically this relates back to acting by me getting my ass kicked in practice.
Hey I finally got my blogger account fixed so I'm in WRDL doing the Julian show with Max Julian and figured Id say whats cracken?! I think this class has gotten so much more fun lately because were allowed to be creative and interact with each other. Well I guess I'll see you all on thursday. Carbone I just wanted to invite you to join my new gang. The 23rd blood gang of the 44805

the play

when i went to see the play i thought it was good. i really enjoyed the play overall. the discussion today in class though was interesting just because i got to find out others opinions on the play. when i saw the play, which was the dress rehearsal day, i didnt even notice anything wrong with the guy main character, because i just thought he was normal and playing his part. he did seem young though, and maybe thats why the people in my class decided they didnt like him much.


I believe last class on Thursday was the most fun class I have had here at Ashland. Everyone was hilarious and the activities were so much fun to act out. When we had to be trapped in some object, I enjoyed this greatly. I was laughing so hard that I was almost crying. Just saying, I believe Thursdays class was the reason Cleveland teams did so amazing this weekend, especially the Indians. OHHH I know that one went straight to the heart of Mr. Fabio. Well I am looking forward to todays class.


Thought about that for a liscense plate. Anyway, I had an opertunity this weekend to actually apply class lessons in real life. I was on a photo shoot and I wanted my model to pose a certain way and she just wasn't getting it. She was supposed to be holding something (which I didn't have and would add in later) and admiring it. Because of class and our work without objects I was able to get her to understand what I wanted and the shots came out great!

= D

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I sure did. I went and saw the play Sunday afternoon. It was pretty good. Made me laugh a few times! I didn't understand the one part where Isabel came out but thats allright I guess. I didnt think that really fit in there. I think the play did a good job of expressing emotions and personality without props. And because that is what we do in class most of the time, I appreciated the play in that sense. It is really hard to do that sometimes, but it can be done and it is effective when its done well.
so i got to act again tonight. so my friends melanie and donnie have fun taking the sugar packets in convo and putting them in stacey's purse. so one night at dinner we decide that were are going to take as many sugar packets as we can and sugar stacey's room. so she calls me tonight and she says well im gonna go downstairs and get my pizza and then do a round if you want to come over and i said i would think about it. so of course i sprint to the 3rd floor of amstutz and unleash the sugar packet fury on her room and run back downstairs and outside and wait for her to call me. so she calls me and i say hey give me a call when your back in your room and she says like you haven't been here already and i was like no im just leaving the TKE house. shes like you're such a liar and i was like what's going on and she says you sugar packeted my room and i was like someone sugared your room oh my gosh ill be right there. so i run back inside and up the stairs and as soon as i see here room i fall to the ground laughing hysterically and panting and i convinced her it wasn't me. so i had her going and she really believed that it was mel and donnie but i ended up telling her at the end before i left. I HAD TO GET SOME PIZZA!

A few things2

the play was hilarious, but i just wrote a paper about it so I'm not going to say anything else on here. Homecoming weekend was a blast. Our fraternity alumni came back and we were at the bars from 8-2am and I didn't have to pay for a single beer. It was a lot of fun listening to all their stories from 10 to 30 years ago about the fraternity.
Saturday we went to Findly to drop of money we raised for this girl what has an incurable genetic disease. We got to meet her and everything. It was very....special?

Monday, October 15, 2007

the play was very good in my opinion. i thought it was funny and i was impressed by their ability to use imaginary props. I learned alot from the actors and i hope to be able to take what i learned and apply it to our class exercises. The play was very good in my opinion. i thought it was funny and i was impressed by their ability to use imaginary props. i learned alot from the actors and i hope to be able to take what i learned and apply it to our class exercises.

not a so great weekend

so this weekend was bad and good, on the one hand it was real crappy and on the other good because i got to see some of my fraternities alumni. The browns won so that is a good thing even though it was against my favorite team the dolphins. But the browns are my second choice so in a way it was OK i guess. The Indians are playing right now and winning 2 nothing. Other than that nothing really to say. Oh the play was really good i enjoyed it.
Another day, another blog for this ol' dog. I finished up my paper before the weekend so that made me happy, it was nice not to have to worry about that paper over the weekend, this isnt going to be a long blog but I just wanted to ask everyone how there weekend was? Hope everyone had as an eventful one as I did.....but I cant wait to see your all's shining faces in class tommorrow and hopefully we do press conference again or at least let Julian be stuck in something so he can let us know he can't get out...
Class is really getting enjoyable. I really like how we are acting out scenes and scenarios. It seems that everyone in the class is having a really good time. I especially enjoyed the press conference part. I think that would be fun to do for the entire class time. It would really teach how to think on your feet. I saw the play and i thought it was good. I can see now why it was so important for us to learn how to interact with objects that were not there. The people in the play were pretty good at it. I did see a few slip-ups but it was not enough for me to lose attention. Also, the scene where they were at the baseball game, i could see how they were actually watching the game, not trying to show that they were at the game. It was a fun show...


I love improv. It's so much fun to do. It's like being on that one show whos line is it anyway. I just like being able to act right off the tob of my head. I think that that would be funner than using a script because with a script you arent able to be creative.

o man

Class was really exciting on thursday. the pairing up and one person not knowing whats going on is neat. everyone is getting better and reacting with eachother. and the trapped excerscise was cool too especially max

saw the play

I saw the play on Thursday, and I really don't have any complaints. That's going besides the fact that I had a really good seat and didn't have to pay for my ticket because I was an usher (so I got service hours out of it for my sorority, too). But anyway I really did like it. I kept wondering when the couple was going to catch their break and thought that with every call the adoption process would work out for them. But then it made the ending that much better because when the situation was finally fixed, it was a twist in the plot. And of course Max was just great in it. One last thing: everyone should sign up to play cornhole in the ADPi tournament! It'll be fun, there's food & prizes and the proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House!

Thursday, October 11, 2007

Todays class was wonderful, i especially enjoyed when we had to pair up and perform as though we were trapped by something. The best was the "twin situation", twas so damn funny.


today was amazing in class. i loved the activity that we did, and may i say that i think we most definably had the best one of the class! we had a really sweet one, and i think dave is still confused. anyhow, the play was good that i saw last night, i hope everyone enjoys it! it is long, and its surely long, but its interesting. let me know what you guys think!
I thought today how totally amazing everyone is. I still remember our first few classes and how no one wanted to "go first," now lots of folks are jumping at the chance. Its interesting to consider how much we have all gotten better since that begining.
I think that the class is getting very interesting now...Before, we couldn't make any noises, then in excercises we could talk and now I really feel like we are begining to "act". It really is cool the different things we learned for instance not playing to your audience so they understand what you are doing, but doing the activity and through that your audience will be enlightened as to what you are doing. But the classes are getting more complex and much more realistic, at least too me. Im kind of nervous about doing the whole tangled up thing later today but hopefully I'll do alright....But that is all I got today, pe@ce out A-town...

Expecting Isabell

I went to see the play "Expecting Isabell" yesterday and i was very pleased with the actors performances. They were mostly all believable in their actions without using props, and the characters that they played. I was entertained throughout the play, and laughed many times. I see now how much of an impact poor acting would have on a real play, especially one without props. The excercises we do in class are exactly the types of things that were demonstrated in the play. The actors were very good at making you believe that there were real props on stage.

thinking about acting

I really think i want to go out for that play. I've never been in a play before but it's always been something i want to try. Now that i was in this class we had an open invitation to try out for this play and i'm really pumped to give it a go. Basically this class is sweet.

Hell week is over for me

Well I had two of my lesson plans this week. One I had to teach with just my cooperating teacher and the other with my supervisor. Both of them went pretty well. I didnt have very many complaints from my supervisor but I didn't do great either. I am jus tso relieved that they are over because I think I have like anxiety from it and I get really nausious and sick when I get nervous and I was def. feeling that way Monday and Wed. when I had to teach my lessons. I am just glad that its over. This semester has been hell for me, but after next week we will be half way done. thank gosh...

late nights keep us up and the morning comes to fast

So I'm up again real late typing in the computer lab a trend that i have been doing for the past two weeks. I mean we are college students we stay up late but lately its been getting to me in the morning. I mean not even coffee is waking me up anymore i just need to catch up on my sleep for once. On the good side of things i did new keys made for my car three new sets. So now i can't lose all of them at once. Its my own fault i lost them i just have this underlying fear that safety services found them and just isn't contacting me because well there safety services. So i am looking forward to class tomorrow and i will be at the play this Friday. I heard so far its very good and i can't wait to see it.

Wednesday, October 10, 2007


This week and the past has been hell for me. The only thing that I have liked about the past two weeks is when we play wizbang. That is such a great game. I am going to start playing this activity at party's. I think it would be interesting to try and teach this wonderful game to a bunch of drunk people and watch them attempt to play. That is just a thought that I had in the course of me getting to this blogsite. On the other hand, I believe the play, Expecting Isabel, was very well done. It had some really funny parts that mad me laugh so hard that I almost cried, that should tell you something about the play. The paper that we have to write about the play should be pretty easy based on the content of the play. There is plenty to write about, because the actors did an amazing job.
so i have realized in the past couple of days, since fabio asked us to relate our blogs back to acting, that i really act a lot around my friends but not in a bad way. Whenever i have lunch with my friends mel and stacey sometimes they will do something and i will pretend to get upset about it even though im not and its a lot of fun and we all do it and i just think it is really humorous. other than that i am going to see expecting isabel tomorrow and i just hope its not too long. i can watch a musical but i have a hard time with plays some times so i guess we will see.


i really do love playing whizbang, even tho at first it was so hard, know though i think we all have the hang of it, and i would like to thank carbone for the A-ROD when off a curveball. That was pretty funny. The eating excercise was a little tougher because you had to make sure you concentrated on chewing rather than talking all the time, and that was harder, and the entangling excercise was funny to see how everyone would react to diferent things.
I enjoyed yesterday's class a lot. It was fun, acting without props, and concentrating on eating and conversing at the same time was difficult.
I also had a good laugh when the prof was making fun of Anthony.. no hard-feelings oki..
btw, I was wondering, why is Carbone called Carbone??

Tuesday, October 9, 2007

Today's class was fun, but it was kind of a struggle for me. I knew right away the first exercise would be a struggle because when we were talking about what our group would do, I was supposed to be married to Carbone and I'm pretty sure Dave's now the designated gay kid (sorry, Dave :( ) Then once we actually got onstage, I knew we were kind of off the goal of the assignment and more focused on the conversation which was tough on its own because I couldn't keep from laughing. There's definitely something to be said about the difference between on-the-spot improv and an actual script to go off of.

again in class...

again in class we did the swoosh game. it was cool, but it gets old after awhile. i like the listening game better. i did enjoy the eating with a group on stage though, it reminds me of convo and people eating at convo. it was a good day.
I am a very fortunate soul to work at the job that I have here on campus. I work in the admission's office here at AU and other than the fact that I am allowed to get a lot of my schoolwork done while working with hott babes, I also get to work with a very diversified group of people. On Tuesday and Thursday I work with a very fun and gorgeous group of woman whom I have a lot of fun said girl is really sweet and all she does is look at wedding magazines, talk about wedding stuff, plan out her wedding, look at wedding rings, and I can go on and on.....But I'm not berating her or coming on here to complain about her interests. I just wanted to say that it is very nice and almost encouraging to see young people in this day and age so in love....I will say it is somewhat depressing for myself, especially now that I am right in that age range where EVERYBODY I know is getting married....I can't complain too much though because I really think I have cut myself off relationship wise just because I know I won't be around this area once I graduate and why not save the pain for a breakup and just not worry about a g.f. or anything right now....Actually, I am quite content with my PS2 and my fishing gear, plus I have no money anyways!


So I went to see the opening of Expecting Isabel Saturday night. It was quite an experience. Now I understand the no props thing. There was so many scene changes that props in that small of a theater would have been impossible. I thought the acting was very good, but the jury is still out on whether I liked it being done without props.

I made the presumption that the actors would be doing a MUCH better job of it than we do in class, but they were only slightly better. I guess that goes to show just how incredibly difficult acting with nothing really is.

I comend all of them for a job well done!

Class this week

Wel this week in class im hopeing that we can eventually be able to talk while acting. Perhaps even be able to throw our hands up in the air and say yea. Perhaps as a popular quaterback walks by. I was really looking forward to talking more during our acting procedures because than I owuld really feel like we're improving with what we are doing. Plus i cant wait to see anthony. I always liked the circus as a child and he takes me back to the simpler times in life.

best weekend ever

The Indians are going to the ALCS. My flag football team won our first tournament game. I won my fantasy football game this weekend. The Ohio State Buckeyes and Tennessee Titans also won. I feel like a winner.

indians win and i lost my keys for my car again bad week

So i just got new keys made for my car which has been sitting in fraternity circle parking lot since monday. But today i got three new keys made and i left two in my car and left one set with me because i had tennis practice. And on the way back to my car i dropped my new key and can't get in to my car to use my spares so heres to me and a stupid move again. I need a big janitor key ring to keep everything on. On a good note though the indians won and are going to face boston. Go Indians.

I did some great acting this weekend

Sp let me tell you guys about the hell that i like to call WORKING CEDAR POINT HALLOWEEKENDS! so for my fraternity we go and we work friday through sunday at cedar point for one weekend to raise money to help pay for our random finances for the year like insurance, etc. So friday we get there around 5 and have to be in the park at 6 to go meet with our leader and find out what we are doing. so we find out we are working Werewolf Canyon which is like a walk through haunted house. so we work that from 8-12 the first day. now 7 of our guys got to work a different haunted house and that was there job for the weekend. they got to work there from 2pm-12am each day except saturday we were done at 10. so the rest of us got screwed. half of us had to work traffic and they had to be at the park at 9am and they didn't get a break for 3 hours straight! i got to work admissions and be a ticket taker which wasn't as bad but we didn't really get anything more than an hour break during and another before we hade to report to werewolf canyon. so saturday was a 10am-12am day. then at least on sunday we worked from 845am-1pm and got to ride rides till we had to be at the canyon at 6pm and there was a crap load of people and i didn't even get to ride the maverick. but acting like a scary ass werewolf was a lot of fun. i made some kids cry which i did feel bad and scaring people was fun but driving home after working all weekend at 10pm was not fun at all. and i am sore and i have lost my voice so im glad it is over. I heard that the Phi Psi's are going soon so i just have to say have fun guys.

p.s. the housing place we were in was terrible it ranked pretty close to kilhefner and amstutz except we had air conditioners, which mine was broken if you guys get 1383, and we had to share rooms of three sooooooo yeah.
