Survey says…

Rob @ 3:04 PM

Another LiveJournal survey, this one yoinked from lilibat.

* * *

You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they doing that to sheep for a living? Since when were they no longer into those truly horrible novels? When did I start having a trout shoved up my-" I digress. And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please feel free to copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal!

NAME: Rob

AGE: 32

LOCATION: Long Island, New York, USA

OCCUPATION: Starving artist and unemployed freelance geek-of-all-trades.

SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None at present, and I'm resisting the urge to pursue any until I get a bit more of my own life into some parody semblance of order.

KIDS: No thanks, I'm not starving that badly.

BROTHERS/SISTERS: Two younger sisters, Jo and Fina. Both adults. I also have a nephew because of Jo.

PARENTS: Divorced when I was two.

PETS: This house currently contains five cats: Thor, Che, Carlito, Gypsy, and Esmerelda. Thankfully we've got two floors and multiple litterboxen.

LIST THE 3-5 BIGGEST THINGS GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE:

* Various artwork and creative stuff. For example, I'm rebuilding my outdated, hideous, and banal personal website from scratch. Soon it will have an updated portfolio of my hideous and banal artwork.
* I'm part of a big-city talk radio show that all the hep cats think is just the bee's knees.
* I'm on the lookout for a day job to take the edge off the starving.
* I'm on staff for The Next HOPE, where plans and goings-on are officially underway. Though the conference has not as yet entirely eaten my life, I look forward to it doing so.
* I was reading a good book, but I can't find where I left it and am now debating obtaining another copy vs. starting a different book.

Recovery

Rob @ 8:37 PM

The reading of Aisle Six went really well. It was an absolute blast to do, and I'm sure you have not heard the last of this production or the amazing team behind it. I look forward to the Mysterious Future wherein we'll find out where this goes next. Many thanks to fearless leader Nicola McEldowney for making it all happen!

Speaking of things made by brilliant creative people who I've fooled into letting me hang out with them, have you seen the Media Show's take on TV Tropes? I got to add some scriptwriting and a couple of guest puppets to my résumé.

In other news, those of you who chimed in on my five questions thing have your questions waiting in the comment section. Huzzah!

DO THIS TONIGHT.

Rob @ 1:40 AM

Once again, I pester my NYC-local friends to come out to the Players Club tonight at 8:30 PM to check out the first public reading of the up and coming musical Aisle Six. The full production will premiere in the mysterious future, but this is your chance for a sneak preview of the script as delivered by a portion of its cast in a prestigious and historical library. Not all of the show is approved for public consumption yet, but the missing bits will be delivered by linking narration.

When you arrive at the place (16 Gramercy Park South) you can check your bags and coats at the door (no charge) and proceed to the library on the second floor. Please note that the Players Club does have a dress code (business casual; no "athletic wear") and other house rules.

The show is free but the room isn't that large, so be sure to get there early enough to get a spot.
