My improv group SQUIRM made a film in 100 Hours for the FILM RACING GRAND PRIX! I ended up running the camera and Elle DeAmor (also in the film) edited it on Windows Movie Maker (she learned the program in about 1 day!) .
We were given the topic of "The Future" and the prop we had to include was a broom.

For some reason, last night I vaguely remembered this low-budget Sci-Fi show from the 70's that I used to "like".... All the detail I could recall was that the characters wore white jumpsuits or something white, and one of the guys looked kind of like Doug Henning.
So guess what? I GOOGLED... and found the show: The STARLOST
It was from Cananda - 1973, eh?
Premise of the show: In the year 2790 A.D., a giant Earthship, Ark, drifts through deep space, out of control, its crew having been killed five hundred years earlier. When the accident that killed the crew occurred, the airlocks connecting the ship's domes that housed the last survivors of the dead planet, Earth, were sealed. Cut off from the outside world, many communities simply forgot that they were on a spacecraft. They accepted that their world was fifty miles in diameter and the sky was metal. Content with their lot, no one knew that their world was in grave danger. Without a crew at the helm, the Ark was on a collision course with a sun.
I guess was in a sci-fi state of mind because I had just gone to the movies with my friend Linda - we saw STAR TREK- The Menagerie... on the big screen remastered in HDGEEK OUT! I only ranked 14.99014% on the Geek Test = "Geekish Tendencies"
When i was in 8th grade at the SWR Middle School on L.I. - we had an "assembly" and a band called the Tomcats played for us -(please don't try to figure out what year that was) I was one of the first ones on the dance floor that day - we loved it! ROCKABILLY! Later we learned they changed their name to theSTRAY CATS, and everyone knew about them (Sexy & 17, Rock This Town et al.)! we felt really cool, cause we heard them first! :) (Admit it - how many of you choreographed a dance to "Stray Cat Strut" for the school variety show?...anyone?) Anyway - I love the Brian Setzer Orchestra- sorry I can't catch the NYC show this month -but check the website for other tour dates: http://www.briansetzer.com/index_main.php Keep on rockin'! You can hear Brian Setzer Orchestra on the soundtrack of many Holiday filmssuch as:'96 JINGLE ALL THE WAY – “Jingle Bells” ~ '03 ELF – “Nutcracker Suite” ~ '07 FRED CLAUS – “Dig That Crazy Santa Clause”
Very clearly marked stairway to the nail place - 42nd Street near 5th Ave. NYC if you get lost on these stairs, you may have a problem.....or at least you won't get a manicure p.s. my friend Monica notes: "I wonder how many lost construction workers, out of building supplies, wander up this staircase?"
I GOOGLED "eviechevy" and found this BabyNamer website that lists some "Drawbacks" to the name Evelyn (which is my full first name) - the teasing nicknames include:Elephant, Avalanche, Evil, etc. - most of which I have been called at some point (except Avalanche)..... One that they left off the list: "Heffalump" - my Dad used to call me that. :) I've also been called Evster, Big E and Everclear........ Look up your name on the babynamer site:
Tuesday - October 16, 2007 was the open call at Carolines for the NY Comedy Fest Stand Up Competition - but according to my photo - it was NEW YORK'S FUNNIEST STAN COMPETITION ....
who is Stan?
I was 5th in the line (I got there at 6:30am to wait for the 11am start) and got to be in the first group brought inside to audition. p.s. I did NOT make it into the semi-finals.....guess there are a lot more funnier Stans in this town than I thought...
10/15/07 - 86th Street NYC Not sure what this banner means, exactly... BURGER KING INTERNET does that mean you can order online? they have internet access? an advertisement for THE INTERNET???? how curious (p.s. my friend Monica says: "I think it means they have virtual food." - duh -why didn't I think of that???!)
