U Ded H47?

No, I assure you all, I'm not dead. Last week was holiday's so my job had me in a tizzy, then family for the holidays, and NOW I am typing this from Culver City. I am so sore right now. And I have 6 more days of it to look forward too. I will try to post some of the work we're doing. I think one of the teachers, the one teaching us rapier & dagger, is also a film guy, so he's been recording us and will probably post our stuff online.

What a hoot. Sorry I've been behind, just busy. I think though I MIGHT have some time this week to write between 10 hour days of constant fight training as I don't have access to WoW. Imma go into withdrawals.

Thanks for sticking around. Later guys. Hope I  break a leg . . . cause it's theatre, or not, cause we're doing combat. Damn, I dunno.

Merry Freakin' X-mas

And other Holiday's as well.

So, my lady is in a show about Jew's in the early 1930's around Christmas time. I think I will start using the phrase "Hanukkah Bush" from now on.

WTF is Kwanzaa? Well, get yourself started with the TRUSTED WIKI, then check out the History Channel snip, and even cruse over to what appears to be the official site. Nifty stuff eh?

And for some Christiany Christmas with nerd flavor I give you . . . .

AND  . . . . Don't shoot your eye out, eh?

I'm sorry guys if things are a little goofy lately but the season this year has been particularly busy and tricky for me. (if you really want to hear me complain I have an excellent email where I bitch till Doc Daneeka says I have it hard, let me know if you'd like to read it.) So I MIGHT miss an update next week and I KNOW I missed 3rd for t3h nrrd so far, but I will try to cook something up music&nerd wise before the first. Also, I don't know how much free time I will have AFTER the 25th, as If I'm not at work I will be in L.A. till the 3rd taking a stage combat intensive class. Cool, right? I know.

So, thanks for sticking with me kids. Chat with you some more later.!

Phenomena Dump

So, last week I PROMISED I would post again before Tuesday. Her it is and because I have had some issues with work and classes and families I wasn't able to finish any longer posts with more meat.
Also because I was trying to finish two chapters AND make a level 13 one shot for two gunslingers and a were-polar bear Ranger with a boar animal companion plus one "other thing" which dropped out last minute.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about   START HERE   and come back when your thuroughly addicted.

And now, for the DUMP:

fun stuff, downblaoded the mix. dissapointed that "accordian Vader" was not also on the track. maybe next time.
Have I mentioned I really want a concertina?

P.S. In my constant need for things I can not currently afford I have fallen in love with TAD gear in San Francisco. And does anyone have any good explanation on why the section of San Francisco is called DOGPATCH

As for other goofy semi-hardcore/boy scout, mil-spec stuff, . .  I complained recently that for lanyard beads on knives its a real "yo dawg" with skulls out there, but then THIS SKULL IS NAMED YORICK so the inner theatre/lit nerd in me goes, That's okay, cause it makes you better.

I really liked this video, and mad kudos to alternative actors (wheel chair? little person? FUCK YEAH!). But, I'm gonna be honest, I don't know how long they rehearsed or blocked, or what sort of training there was or how much they cared, but the fights and the sabre hilts felt a little weak. They were sufficient, I got the jist and it could have been MUCH worse, but, I expected a bit more.

Otherwise, hope that holds you over till tomorrow when I attempt to post something ELSE before midnight. tune in won't you? all half-a-dozens of you?
