I find myself with more time on my hands so I won’t need to use the auto-post feature of wordpress for a little while! Though I did find it funny to post things on a Wednesday at 2:13 (arbitrary numbers!)
Exercise #11- Read an obscure feature story in a small-town newspaper and write about the object of that feature.
Ahhhh- the Rocky Horror Picture Show, corrupting the minds of the young for decades now- gotta love it! So it’s good to know that this show is continuing to be produced and shown via stage and screen medias, but it feels so mainstream now that I know a community theater in North West Washington had done it. Don’t get me wrong- it is almost appropriate that it’s a community theater because of the grass-roots beginnings of this shows cult status, but it just seems- I dunno- weird.
The first time that I’d ever seen mention of the Rocky Horror Picture Show was in the movie FAME, but I was too young to understand what I was seeing. It wasn’t until high school and joining the drama department that the cultish nature of the love that people have for this movie became clear to me. I still didn’t really get it, but I really enjoyed the fun that we all had with it. This was one of many “inside jokes” that I felt privileged to be in on, even though I was in actuality on the perimeter of the center of the crowd.
For all of the horrible memories that I have of High School, I do also have some very good ones. I do lament that I’ve only really kept in touch with a couple of people from that era in my life, but it was inevitable that we should all grow and go down different paths that really didn’t intersect anywhere in the future outside of the internet or the occasional run-in. I didn’t leave a forwarding address, so I never went to my reunions (so far).
Anywho- this is probably not the most interesting of responses to these exercises so I won’t drag it on.
