Feeling up and down

TRUTHS

"…sometimes I would prefer my [exs] to be terrible men so that I’m not the terrible part of the equation.”

And hungry all over. Wondering if I made poor choices—am making poor choices; am not thinking clearly.

A man who looks like a snake in on the train with me and he stares like a snake and I think about the CSP before Past CSP. I suppose all those SHOUKD just be referred to as SP (sexual partners)…

scenicdesign:

Today scenic design is taught and classified into two types… Box Sets & Unit Sets.

I would like to propose additional scenic design classifications (which can be viewed above and are listed below).  Each week I will focus on a different classification.  Some of these can be combined and could be debated that some of these “classifications” are the same but, by redefining the terms we use designers, artists and theater practitioners we can further understand what scenic design is, can be and will be as theater progresses further.  

Got a question, comment, thought?  Hate it?  Love it?  Think I’m a fool? Got something to contribute?  I want to hear from you!  Let’s get a discussion going!

Everyone Who Knew Me Before 9/11 Believes I'm Dead.

glutanddecadence:

FOLLOW THIS PROJECT & SHARE THEIR JOURNEY FOR ANSWERS! 

For one individual, the tragedy of 9/11 was the best moment of their lives. Our documentary theater piece, Everyone who knew me before 9/11 believes I’m dead, will follow our search for this soul. 

The website PostSecret.com, “an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard.” Published a secret with only the words,Everyone who knew me before 9/11 believes I’m dead. This postinspired us to launch an investigation. 

Over the next nine months we will be closely documenting through film and writing, our search for this person, culminating in a live theater piece telling the story of our journey to find the answers to our own impossible questions: what does it mean to leave a whole life, what does it take to disappear in our modern world, and who will we as a company become when we find the answers.
