Remember these? What was their appeal? Always thought that they were just ugly. Not to mention creepy as hell.                                                                                                                                          

   My internet problem seems to be fixed. For now.

WE DODGED A BULLET                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        We're fine. All we got was the outer eastside of the hurricane. The power flickered off and on around 7pm, but stayed on. The wind gust started about 10pm. That caused the cap on one of the chimneys to blow off and wrap around a smaller chimney. The noise that made was awful, coupled with the bricks blowing unto the roof, rolling down and off to the ground. It sounded like a monster was jumping up and down. Thank goodness it didn't last long. By midnight, it was over. Wanting to live somewhere where the weather isn't trying to kill me isn't asking too much, is it?

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 316                                                                                                                                                     

Here's Dany from season 3, I think. Oh, Game of Thrones, duh.  We're sitting around waiting for yet another hurricane. Shh, don't say "climate change", in the past 10 years there sure have been an up tick in how many are going over my area. The university is closed today and tomorrow all staff and faculty report back to work....who are they kidding? The director of FEMA said Southwest Georgia could have a power outage for 2 or 3 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, can't sew in the dark. I'll keep you posted when I can.

As of 11:15am est, usa, no wind or rain. We should get the brunt of this in the evening/overnight. Yeah, no sleep of me.

It's the Last Centurion, AKA Rory from Dr. Who                                                                                                                                  

Rory was an awesome companion.  I've been a Dr. Who fan since the mid-80's (Hello, Tom Baker) so I'm really looking forward to the new female Doctor! Which I think starts in the next couple of weeks.

A SHOW POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WHAT!!!!!!!!

I know it's been awhile since I posted about a show. Our first one this year was called Hands on a Hardbody. The hardbody being a pick-up trunk that a dealership in Texas was giving away to the winner of a contest. The last person standing with their hand on the truck wins. It's based on a true event.                                                                                                                            
 Our talented student cast, a mix of freshmen and upper-classmen. male and female, Black and White.                                                                                                                                              
 The men: Terrance D. Searcy (Ronald), Brandon Chandler (Greg), Mark Sheme (Benny), Aaron Thomas Moore (JD), Daniel Lennox, Jr. (Chris), Melvin Galloway (Jesus), James Bohler Rowell, IV(Don, husband to Janis) and Savannah Kern (Virginia, wife of JD)                                                                                                                          
 The women: Diana McCasland (Heather), Taylor Gay (Kelli), Savannah Kennedy (Janis) and Liz Perez (Norma)                                                                                                                                  

Heather my have a leg up on winning. With Jared Watson (Mike) owner of the dealership.

 Janis suspects something is rotten in Longview, Texas.

 Cindy (Ursula Trassorras) tells Jesus that she'll need to see his "green card" if he wins. But he was "Born in Laredo"

 The last 3! Norma, JD and Benny. No spoilers!

 Oh, no! The last 2! Norma getting some much needed support from Ronald and Chris.   In this photo you can see the casters the truck was on so it could be spun around the stage. And the cover over the bed so the actors could jump on the truck. Yes, it's a really full size pick-up truck. The engine, transmission and gas tank were removed. The tires are real and the headlights work.

 Yep, our building has a loading dock, but it's not attached to the scene shop. Getting a full size truck into the building took about 3 hours. The 3 sets of doors had to be removed, the mirrors had to come off and the back bumper was removed. All the scene shop students can now put "auto body work" on their resumes.

After the strike, the truck was given to someone who towed it away for free. They wanted the body.

Bye, truck!

The photos are from Genny Muncy and Paul Levy.

The last 2 are from Phillip "We'll never get a truck up stairs to the Lab Theatre" Brulotte, our new Technical Director.

Esther Iverson designed the costumes, Noah E. Dalton designed the lighting, Ruth Brandvik designed the set. Jacque Wheeler directed. Oh, did I mention that this show is a musical?
