Tour...Day 1

Well it's hard to explain the past 24 hours. It has all kind of been some type of surreal, absurd theater performance. New Haven suddenly decided to warm up to me...literally. The weather was great, sunny and 60+. It was also a nice treat to enjoy the town without my normal college routine. I took part of the VQ geocaching, which was great. And we all had lunch and dinner together. Dinner was a fiasco though. This is about where things got extremely weird...

Since I know that everyone likes to stay up-to-date on my blog, I thought I'd take a second to alert you to RSS Feeds. If you don't know what an RSS feed is, it's basically a very lightweight summary of various sites, like a news ticker. It's extremely versatile, in fact, you can get headlines right in Outlook, on your sidebar in Vista, and probably somewhere on Macs as well. This way, you can see if there's a new post or photo without ever checking my site.

I have been wondering for awhile how to put RSS feeds into the sidebar on Vista. When you hit the configure button on the RSS widget, it doesn't show up there. Here's how to fix it:

----------

1. Open Internet Explorer

2a. Visit: http://www.charliecroom.com/gallery/index.php?x=rss
On that page, you should see a button up top that says add to my feeds. Click it!

2b. Visit: http://charliecroom.com/index.php?tempskin=_rss2 and do the same thing!

3. Now in your sidebar you can configure it to show headlines from my blogs! (Add the widget multiple times to get feeds from multiple sources, or you can "manage your feeds" and put them in a common folder)

---------------

If you use firefox, you can visit the above sites and it will present you with a similar bar in yellow asking if you'd like to add it. You can use the drop-down menu and add it to various applications including Outlook.

Of course you can always just stop by the site whenever you like! It's always fun to see the rotating headers, and it's always fun to show the photoblog to friends :) Pretty pictures! Back to studying for me now, Spring Break....so....close...

I'm sorry!

It's been two weeks since I last really updated you on my life. But this is with good reason: I've been very busy. Between Equus and Laughing Stock there's hardly been any time to work on those pesky midterms I've been taking. However I'm almost out of the forest. Tonight is my final (basically) theater engagement for the semester. We just have to take everything down and it's over! Also, I will be inducted into the Dramat tonight as well (tomorrow morning I guess). This means that I've completed 3 shows on crew...my how time flies. Anyways, more unexciting work to do the rest of this week studying.

What is exciting however, is that spring break is a mere one week away. That's right, in precisely one week I will be on a plane to Colorado to ski and improv. There is no break like a tour break. So I'm thrilled to be able to hang out with the VQ for a week and then see all the people from EL I miss so much.

But what's even more exciting than that (for you) is my photoblog. If you check it regularly then you already know this, but if you expect that I will notify you every time I post a picture, than you are also correct. I have posted 6 new pictures. That's right 6 great pictures of school, sports, and more. They aren't actually new, but I don't always keep all my YDN photos, so I went and raided their server this weekend. They however the most recent 6 on the site, so just check out the photoblog and look at all my pictures! Let me know what you think!

Enjoy!

Again, I'd like to point out the new webcomic written by a friend of mine at Yale. For some reason, I find this particular comic to be the best yet! Enjoy:

After an exhausting week of attempting to learn how to light a three-quarter thrust show (Audience on three sides), I think we are finally ready to open. As usual, yesterday was the photo show, so I'd just like to share some of those with you. Check them out on facebook! One of my favorite lightingwise scenes was the sex scene, but for obvious reasons, that's not on there. You'll just have to trust me that it was pretty....the lighting that is. Anyways, it should be a pretty fun show to watch, on to Laughing Stock now...
