tiptoe39: a girl with magical powers should never be taken lightly (Default)
Fiddler closed on Saturday night. It was an amazing run. Don't know if any of y'all are interested in the video but here's Matchmaker from our 2nd night. Not my best but far from my worst. I'm the one in purple who comes in halfway through the song.

Every year with a few exceptions, I've been writing Christmas Carol parodies based on what I was into at the time. The past decade has looked like this:

2000 (pre-livejournal) - Hana Yori Dango
2001 - Gravitation
2002 - hiatus as I was in Japan
2003 - Buffy
2004 - City of Heroes
2005 - Video games, politics & copy editing
2006 - Heroes
2007 - Presidential Primary Spectacular
2008 - LJ hiatus; no carols
2009 - too busy being newly obsessed with SPN to write carols
2010 - Supernatural

This year I have so many shows that I'm enjoying, I couldn't limit my carols to just one fandom. So I have spaced them out over a few fandoms this time. So... enjoy!

Fringe, The Walking Dead, Suits, Hawaii Five-O, and more )

So in preparation for my audition, this morning I sat down and finally bit the bullet and watched the pilot of Glee.

Whether this was an incredibly smart thing to do or incredibly foolish, I'm really not sure yet. One thing I do know: it was the right thing to wait until now to see it.

Because if I had watched that show with no sense that I would ever have a chance to do something like that again, I would have been inconsolable.

As it was, I cried so hard afterward for about 20 minutes.

It was Rachel who said the words that got to me -- "If you're a part of something special, you are special." That's just it. That's the whole point, that's my whole life. I feel so much like I'm on the outside looking in. I'm just coming off another experience that was less than fulfilling, because once I got involved with all these people and felt I had to live up to their talent, I choked completely and ended up contributing only a minimal amount. That's what happens with me. I'm either a big fish in a small pond, or I make the extra effort to challenge myself and try to swim with the big fishes and I am swallowed up immediately. I'm sick of doing that, you know? I want to try my damnedest to get involved with something and follow through once I'm in. I want to be part of something special... and be someone special within it.

If I wanted this before because it was a Chance to Be on TV, I want it doubly because of what the message I gleaned from the pilot was. There's a place where I can both shine and belong. I just have to find it.

I'm 33 years old, man. If I don't have this dream now and go with it, as stupid and reality-show crazy as it is, I don't know when I'll get the chance again.

I asked already, but I'm asking again.

Please Like the video. Please share it. Feel free to use my words if you want. I'm just lit on fire by this, and I want to be able to go to NYC and have them say "Hey, you've got like 1,000 likes on your video, sure, come on in and audition for the casting director instead of these aides." I'm at 175 likes right now, which is amazing, but I have to figure out how to harness the power of the Web to get a bit more publicity.

Can you guys help? In any way you can?

Thank you thank you thank you forever and ever.

BTW, if I get through this and get noticed enough to make an album, I'll be writing SPN cast tribute songs. No, really. Check Kim Rhodes' and Gabe Tigerman's twitter feeds ;D

I'm auditioning for the Glee Project!

I'm taking the bus to New York and getting in that cattle-call line to take my last shot at stardom before I settle in to my mid-thirties life of internet fame and slash-writing. But to have a shot, I need your help! They say the exec producer will go through all the online auditions and might ask some of the live auditions to sing for him personally, so I need to get their attention with lots of "likes."

So .... Please hit the 'like' button!

You don't even have to listen to me sing - and even if you do, you definitely don't have to listen to the sob story that takes up the first two minutes of the video.

Thanks so much for any help and publicity you can give me :) This will be the closest I'll ever get to that childhood dream I had of waiting tables by night and going to auditions by day... please help me recapture it if you really believe it's never too late to shoot for your dreams.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, from the studio that brought you Gravitation, Buffy, City of Heroes, Heroes, and political Christmas carols, I would like to present this year's offerings!

From the holiday songbook including Anna, the Red-Haired Angel - she had a very sexy pose!) -  )

Usually my carols go on a little longer, but this year I have something extra-special to share with you all. Let's all give a warm welcome to [livejournal.com profile] darth_firefly, who vidded this song. Here it is, guys, my super-sekrit holiday gift to the fandom. Here's what we all want under our tree:

Happy Merries and Merry Happies, y'all!

I tried to choose mostly English tracks so everyone would be able to enjoy them. This partially accounts for the glut of music from 1989. Partially. Heh.

Folks are posting playlists of their favorite songs. i cannot do this. but I will post a listy list of it. You'll notice that they're all old and most of them are anime. heh. This is basically the contents of my favorite-songs playlist on my ipod. There are 65 songs on it so it's a long list.

Listy list of listful things. )
