I leave tomorrow morning at 10:05 A.M. For The Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Its been a long wait, but its finaly here. I will return on the 11th of August. So untill then, Adios! Expect many pictures and videos when I return.
Well it may surprise a few of you that I obtained my drivers license two days ago. Thats right am now legally driving my car. I have been driving with my perment mainly because I had to go to work and plays everyday, But am now legal. I am just glad to have it before I leave for oregon. I also opened a checking account, so now I can have a debit card. I feel all grown up.
Summer has been going great so far up here in Idaho. I miss not being able to go down to Utah like I have every summer since we moved. I tradded it instead for my trip to Oregon. I am working off and on for my moms clients doing some demo, and finish work in their new home. I can go really when I feel lik going, so its nice not having to be there everyday. Farley is doing good, he adjusted fast to the new house, and he can now be let loose without the worry of him bothering the neighbors, thanks to the new fence. Father has been working lots so has Mother. So I have been doing as a please, once in awhile. I just finished reading the new Harry Potter book. Took be all night, I read from 3:00 p.m. till 6:00 a.m. I then didnt go back to sleep, but instead went to work at 8. When I got home Father’s friend MJ was here so we had a BBQ and about 5 I fell asleep and woke up at 9. I think from now on I wont be staying up all night, its one of those you need it things. I leave for oregon soon, little more than a week. I have been making contacts with other kids going. I actually have the same flight from Portland to Medford with some other of the folks going. I recieved my Seminar schedule. The day I arrive(July 30th) we have; Orientations, rennaissance dance, more orientations, and then a nice bedtime of 11 or later. Then it sort of goes into a basic schedule of; vocal warmups, physical warmups, workshops, exc. The workshops include(just a few); Shakespeare voice-Speaking Shakespeare, Stage Combat, Jump Off!-Creating Hip Hop Theatre, Direcitng, and then the attendence of 7 of the Oregon Shakespeares season plays. They tell me to bring a fan, because the dorm rooms we will be staying in lack air conditioning. I am partially memorized with the things need to be. am about 34% memorized. But then again I memorize fast, when I get into it. Here are a few pictures of Farley.
I recently purchased a new book, and recently meaning an hour ago. Its called The Theater and its Double. It focuses on the historic events in the past that led theatre to where it is at today. “We cannon go on prostituting the idea of the theater, the only value of which is in its exercruciating, magical relation to reality and danger.” Artaud thought that theatre could be used as a link between writting and life. Its a very intersting book, and am on page 9. Great Read.
(The spelling of theatre was changed in 1975 from TheatER to TheatRE, for reasons unknown. So the book uses the spelling before 1975)
Fireworks over Lake Couer D’ Alene!
Fire on the Water.
Happy Fourth of July everyone. Well today so far has not been so fun, I had to go to work for a few hours and paint a closet. It wasn’t fun. But now I am home and I am looking forward to the massive CDA firework show tonight over Lake Couer D’ Alene. Its always a blast and there are so many people down on the beach and all over downtown, its a fun thing. I leave for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 24 Days. Its getting closer and closer and the days are flying by. I still need to memorize my things for it though. I have a greek monolouge from Agammemnon, a scene from Romeo and Juliet, a monolouge from As You Like It, and The Tempest. Plus I have to know a boat load of stuff about greek mythology. Oh and I decided that I like ice in water. I usually love warm water, room temperature anyway. But I have some ice water now, and its darn good.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!
The Fourth Last Year!
Farley on the Fourth!
