    • Not Tonight, Good Iago.

      Tonight, I'm wishing I hadn't joined the Maryland Shakespeare players.

      When I tried out for Othello and was cast as Cassio, I was told that we made sure not to schedule our performance the same day as a game.

      Out of the blue, last weekend I discovered that tomorrow's performance and our last home game are at the same time. Of course, since the Shakespeare Players need me far more than the band does, I had to choose the play, but part of me still wishes I hadn't. Part of me still wishes that I would have quit then and there. Then I wouldn't have had to endure the ridiculous, shameful production that this group is putting on. Our Othello has been to a handful of rehearsals, but no, we couldn't ditch her! The whole point of the production is that our Othello is a woman! So instead of having her actually rehearse with us, or finding someone who would, she carries around a "notebook" on stage. But that is only a slice of the disgusting pie that this experience has become. Don't get me started on the sets, the organization, the people, or the implications of my absence from band. I'm pissed out of my mind tonight. I want to wake up and I want this production to be over. The sooner I can put it all behind me, the sooner I can forget about it.

      Bill, one of the tubas. If you don't recognize his costume, you fail at everything ever.
      CIMG9957.jpg

      And this is the guy who got me on the first day of humans vs. zombies >.<
      CIMG9958.jpg

      Mike, another one of the tubas, who got a little creative with his foil when we went to Chipotle for free burritos (If you don't know what I'm talking about, Chipotle gives a free burrito to anyone who comes in "dressed as a burrito," i.e. with any foil on them, on Halloween).
      CIMG9959.jpg

      My friend Jess, whose costume you might recognize if you got Bill's.
      CIMG9960.jpg

      Today, we went to a high school competition and did an exhibition show. We don't compete, and it really made me miss competitions, seeing all those bands and having an audience who actually appreciates what you're doing and really cheers for you. Anyways, after that, we did a 2-mile parade. I was very tired and hungry at the end, but my goodness, I love marching band so much. The point here is that on the bus ride over, I was spacing out, watching the pretty fall trees, and I felt a bit inspired, so I wrote a poem. It's not much, but it's something, I guess:

      Fall is exquisite beauty

      Your walk as brisk as the morning
      You move for want of life

      That brisk air taps you on the shoulder
      And the vital heat in you smiles hello

      As vital leaves wilt and fall from trees
      Death breeds beauty's earthy colors

      When air and ground turn cold and hard
      Vital food is pulled and piled from tired dirt

      Dirt and trees go to long sleep
      Knowing of the deathly cold.

      I have an internship right now with facilities planning for the university. Basically I measure perimeters (insides and outsides) of the campus buildings and we're determining gross square footage, space usage, in hopes to determine funding for the university. They're looking to become a "green" campus. I love it. Definitely a resume builder, but the hours I'm just not used to. 8am-4:30pm Monday through Friday. So weekends off are great, but during the week it sucks. Just have to keep myself busy. :)

      Well, weekends obviously I got stuff to do, like hang out with friends and travel. I got a couple of things planned already, such as Summerfest in Milwaukee, my birthday party, etc. It's during the week where it gets superdull.

      Tom Stoppard, author of the play, wrote the script, so you know it's true to the original. It moves a little faster, though, but at the expense, some bits are cut, especially the role of the Player (head of the Tragedians).

      And no, Matt was perfectly pleasent to the cop. He pulled us over for speeding, accused Matt of being drunk (which he wasn't), lied about how fast Matt was going on the ticket so he'd have to pay a bigger fine, and was basically a dick all around.
