Last night i basically told one of my directors down at the theatre that i despise production work and acting bores me. Of course, that’s all true, but i didn’t really need to be so blunt. I am so unattracted to working in theatre that i’ve began to wonder why i did it in the first place… of course, i know: in high school theatre was the only extracurricular activity that i had any semblance of seniority in. Despite putting hard work in on every other group, i either was never offered leadership or never wanted it. in college, the roles have been reversed; i have to scrap and fight for small roles in theatre, but i can go to any other activity and quickly make a name for myself with dedication and hard work. When i can be an active and valued member in the Triangle as well as my fraternity in six short weeks, it’s no wonder why i’m still not too enthused about the theatre after a whole year.

Sara Lee and her band were one of the most amazing live occurences i’ve ever experienced. Her album is similarly amazing, but the full sound of her live band isn’t echoed on the record. Depite the slightly more minimalist production, the album works better because it makes Sara’s clear british vocals and her amazing bass playing more of the sonic center of gravity. The live mix had much more rhythm and low end surrounding the bass part, with the vocals floating above as melody more than clear words.
Attended the Ani DiFranco concert on Monday. A quick first draft of my review appears at JLA.uprush.org. I saw tons of people i know, and met Sara Lee and Gail-Ann Dorsey (Bowie’s bassist). Ani was good, but not tremdous; she gets to wrapped up in her jams while the audience is hoping for another song. I am in a computer crash-and-burn right now, so i’ll be back later… :(…
In a great instance of karma, someone sideswiped my poor guitar case with their bicycle but then turned out to live in my building. I found this out shortly before letting my building’s heavy metal door close on the shiny spokes of said bicycle’s front wheel. So, i had the chance to get one up on karma, but instead i chose revenge, and now my karma score has been reset back to 0.
