I really ought to start making a list -- some movies are really best watched when drunk. Helps a lot with the suspension of disbelief, and things can hit close to home without...hitting too close to home.
Plus, there is that wonderful invention known as the "blooper reel"...(okay, so everything's put out on DVDs now, so it ain't exactly a reel. Big difference. Wonders of modern technology. :P)
I suppose I ought to say, meanwhile, that my issues with the musical have subsided into, "Well, we've just got to do the best with what we have" -- and really, that's all we can do, though it seems to work best with my stage business and delivery insights, and Kevin's too. He's the second-youngest person in the show, and he's done the leads in Joseph and in Beauty and the Beast locally so far, plus he's a fellow singer/songwriter type, enough so that we two guys are the only ones doing extensive harmony lines on the ensemble numbers (yes, two tenors both dealing with Tom's incorrigible C-Major melody-only lines have to do something to make it interesting and singable). And although he and Kate think that I have a dirty, dirty mind [addendum: okay, it's just that I show it so readily and directly], my hyper all-outness has gotten them all a good bit out of their shells and into hamming it up. I think that my two major objectives are going to be A - working up my tap-dancing and tango, and B - seeing how many accents I can work into the performance (I already have the nicknames "Zorro" and "Dracula", so I may as well work it to the hilt...:-|). My conception of Martin is as a chameleon, and it's showing through quite well -- Kate calls me "Mr. Changing Personalities" at one point, to which I intend to reply, "I'm a Libra -- what do you expect?"
Oh yes, I have found my other happy spot again, faceting merrily/angstily/chipperly along, perhaps with a little Flynny goodness to boot....
[Hmmf. Perhaps more on Libras, faceting and happy spots later. Twins and scales, that's where it's at, ladies and gentlemen -- and you will observe that at no time do my fingers leave my hands. I don't think that the person who made that "Flynny goodness" reference (it was over LotR character resemblances..) is actually following my entries these days, though I think the rest of the web of allusions might be gatherable -- especially if there's a bucket of fish by the fireplace and pore Jud ain't able to die. :P]
