UM. THERE'S A HOSTAGE SITUATION AT THE WHITTIER PUBLIC LIBRARY. WHERE MY MOM IS WORKING. She is not a hostage, and yet... THERE'S A HOSTAGE SITUATION AT THE LIBRARY. WHAT?!?!

Also, I got an interview call for the CTG job. I would describe myself at this moment as... emotionally conflicted.
bardic_lady: (midsummer - take pains)
So, here's the thing. The one thing that I absolutely, positively cannot have at the conference site for my presentation is the internet.

Which is a problem, since it's a Digital Dramaturgy panel, where they want a case study, and my project only exists ON THE INTERNET. *headdesk headdesk headdesk*

Does anyone know of good and reliable ways to download entire websites? If it helps, I wrote 95+% of the material, so I don't think it violates any copyrights.

I've tried a couple of programs, but one claimed to have downloaded everything and then couldn't find it and one would only do 200 files which is totally insufficient.


Help. Please.

(I'll share about the awesome Leverage prescreening sometime when I'm panicking less)
bardic_lady: (chessy - scared yet?)
Okay, it's just about official. I'm going to DC next Thursday to present at the annual LMDA Conference.

*jawdrop*

Seriously, this whole situation is SO FREAKIN' WEIRD.

And now I need a ten minute presentation on why wikiturgy is awesome. Powerpoint, don't fail me now...
bardic_lady: (ratatouille - those days)
JUST got an email from the LMDA conference I wasn't going to because it was too expensive telling me (they say reminding, but they NEVER TOLD ME BEFORE) that I'm a presenter. In a week. In DC.

THE FUCK, Y'ALL?!?!

I AM NOT MENTALLY EQUIPPED FOR THIS.
bardic_lady: (alia - waiting)
I just sent in a packet for a job that I want more than just about anything. Please think positive thoughts for me?
bardic_lady: (dramaturg - rushing in)
Hokay. Tomorrow, I take the train to San Diego and spend four days mingling with the Dramaturgy set. (Please, please give me a job...) Internet will cost and so, may be spotty at best. Peace and love y'all. Try not to burn down the internet while I'm away. There's wine in the fridge and bread in the box, remember to clean up after yourselves. Oh, and feed the Enfield beast in the backyard and put seeds out for the martlets.

So, I realized I haven't posted in many a day, at that, therefore, it's unfair of me to be pissed when people don't know.

My interview at the Theatre @ Boston Court is tomorrow at 3pm PDT. Any and all good wishes would be deeply appreciated, as I want this job VERY VERY BADLY.
bardic_lady: (dramaturg no fear)
It was good that I did what I did with my day. I followed Lue Morgan Douthit, the Literary Director of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival around and listened to her talk about production dramaturgy. It was awesome like a truly awesome thing. Sadly, no internship there this summer, but I'll keep looking...

After yesterday's bad news, this made me feel a little more stable.
bardic_lady: (dramaturg no fear)
Have come to the distinct and definite conclusion that I would be utterly miserable dramaturging Romeo & Juliet for Jac. She wants entirely different things out of her dramaturg than I want to do. She doesn't like program notes particularly and in general, what she wants is not what I want to be able to do.

It's probably a bad thing when one's passion makes one not want to be where one is. I'm reading Geoff's case study on Antony and Cleopatra (or Antonym and Cleopatra, according to Word) and finding myself desperately wanting to dive into Midsummer and really work the text. There are about ten different essays I need to track down about fairy tales and the processes behind them, I've barely started restoring punctuation, I want to look at at least three other versions of the script (Variorum tops the list), I need to look for artists' renditions of Oberon, Titania, and Puck, at the very least, I need to listen to the opera...And I want to work on it now instead of declining Latin nouns and reading about the ways in which we persuade. I'm thrilled beyond thrilled with this assignment, but it's killing me to know that it's really still a year off.

Of course, I'm also still hyped like no other about my independent study. I'm meeting with Jac soon about how connected to the department my first reading is going to be, I need to compose my survey, I need to put out posters/feelers about interviews with a wide variety of people ([livejournal.com profile] amaresu, [livejournal.com profile] lornelover, [livejournal.com profile] melomena, y'all are on that list...) I have tons of books that I'm desperate to read through, I haven't finished The Shakespeare Company yet, I keep getting distracted. Maybe Jac is right, I should keep my involvement down this semester to give myself more time to play...

I feel like my manifesto for Playwrighting is going to be a lot more OMGSHAKESPEARE!!!!11!! than anything else. I can't help it...It's just...There is so much excitement, it's such a physical, mental, emotional rush to work with Shakespeare. I want to do everything and yell and dance and cry and fly. I don't know why I do theatre. I don't know why I love Shakespeare. But it's the best most fantastic drug there has ever, ever been. I'm totally addicted. More than the internet, more than anything else.

And I am so not doing my homework right now...

Silly dramaturg...

Suddenly had a deep and passionate need for Under Milkwood. *Facepalm* Left the hundreds of pages of reading have for tomorrow and schlepped (barefoot) over the library to get it. Not that I'm going to read it now, I have reading and writing to do. And not as if anyone other than me has checked it out in the last two years. However, I needed it to be right here, right now. *Rolls eyes*

I Cannot Hide What I Am

I must be sad when I have cause and smile
at no man's jests, eat when I have stomach and wait
for no man's leisure, sleep when I am drowsy and
tend on no man's business, laugh when I am merry and
claw no man in his humour...
I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in
his grace, and it better fits my blood to be
disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob
love from any: in this, though I cannot be said to
be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied
but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with
a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I
have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my
mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do
my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and
seek not to alter me.
