In our digital world, a truly super-power would be the ability to un-read. I'd use it all the freaking time.

BIRTHDAY MADNESS [Feb. 7th, 2007|06:03 pm]
ooknabah
Hey there people. Yeah, you, on my LJ Friends list. Maybe it's been a while since I've seen you, maybe not. Whatever the case, you somehow managed to end up on my LJ friends that means YOU ARE INVITED . Yes, next week I am turning 24 and I'm doing the very mature thing and filling my house to the brim with people to celebrate.
 
Two things are going on:
 
THURSDAY, FEB 15TH- Is Birthday Drinking and Karaoke at the Limelight. (531 St. Mary's Rd Winnipeg) I'll be aiming to get there around 9pm and will be staying until they kick us out, so if that is your thing, please, by all means join me.
 
AND
 
SATURDAY, FEB 17TH- Is Birthday house party at my place starting at 8pm. (Let me know if you need directions) I know, I live way out in the boonies, but I promise good times. At the very least, I have an incredibly cute dog who would love to meet you. This will probably be the last house party there, so let's make it a good one!
 
Now, your mission, should you choose to accept it is the following: Come to one (or both!) of the events, have a good time, and finally, let anyone else who might want to come and who I've neglected to inform know. I always get into crap for neglecting to invite people and I would love to avoid that as much as possible. Also, if you could  RSVP for the 17th so I know how many people to expect and who I should be preparing voodoo curses for, that would be fantastic.  Thanks, and see you next week!

Call for HELP! [Jan. 31st, 2007|06:56 pm]
ooknabah
Okay, so I just got a message from that New York fringe festival I was talking about a while ago: Apparently a spot has just opened up. That would mean that in Feb I would get back from Texas on the 23rd, do the Kibo (Human Rights Fundraiser) concert on the 24th, then have 2 weeks of rehearsal before running off for the festival from the 7th-18th.  Here are the pros and cons:
 
PROS:
  1. I get to do a festival in New York!
  2. I'll have a show to do between now and the Fringe.
  3. It'll give me a chance to rework Jesus Christ, I'm Sorry
  4. It will be a chance to network with various artists and good exposure
  5. If I get good reviews, I can use them in the future for Grants
  6. It'll be wicked ass fun, because it's New York!
 
CONS:
  1. It will cost a lot of money- In fact, I don't know if it's possible for me to gain money on the whole.
  2. It will mean I'll be crazy busy between now and then, working on it pretty much full time if I want to hold to any of my other projects.
  3. It will take a lot of time to rework the script, and I would not be happy going with what I currently have.
  4. I'm not sure if any of that networking would be of any use, especially when I can do much of the same at the Winnipeg Fringe.
  5. I might not get good reviews. Traveling down to do a shitty show would suck.
  6. It's in March, so it will be cold and maybe not as fun as my last trip.
  7. I also need to get the time off work: Which may be problematic, although I can't really say at this point.
 
So, friends, what do you think? Should I do it?

ARCADIA HELD OVER! ADDITIONAL SHOW ON THE 4th! [Jan. 29th, 2007|11:26 am]
ooknabah
Hey there guys- Arcadia is 2 weeks down and only one more to go! If you haven't seen it yet, well I've got bad news and I've got good news:

The bad news is that our remaining shows on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd are reserved to the limit.

The good news is that due to this, it has been decided to hold the show over for one more performance, on Feb 4th at 3pm: So, if you want to see the show and you haven't reserved tickets, there is still a chance!

Now, if you can't come on the Sunday, there is still a chance to see the show: Usually a few of our reservations won't make it to the show, and in those cases those tickets are released to be sold: The show starts at 8, so if you come around 7:15 (later works as well, although it does reduce your chances!) you have an excellent chance of getting in. But if you would rather not have to worry about all of this, then the show on the 4th is the way to go.

You can reserve tickets at 952-1533. It's 15$ at the door. Again, shows on the 1-3rd are at 8pm, while the added show will be at 3pm. Hope to see you there!

Spread the word!
