Speech & Debate wrapup

12/08/08 | by Comp615 [mail] | Categories: Theater

Well I'm in post-show depression stage right now. It's finally over and it was by far the best show I've worked on yet. Basically the people were just amazing and the show was fun. Despite the fact that it was a play, there was a good amount of singing and dancing, so we recorded a soundtrack. It features all the singing, some comedy, and the indie songs from in between scenes.

The YDN initiation was fun and featured me singing the "Ode to Acetaminophen", after that I snuck out to go to our improv show. It was a very very solid show and lots of fun. Of course after this weekend, now it's time for me to write my paper. So today I grabbed some books and sat down to start. It will be a long week, but I'll make it through. Till then!

Speech & Debate

12/03/08 | by Comp615 [mail] | Categories: Theater

No updates for some time now, but I'm back. Thanksgiving break was a cruelly short-lived tease before finals, but it's finally dawning upon me after finishing my first class of the semester (minus the final...minor detail).

The good news is that this weekend should be awesome! Friday is an on-campus VQ show which should be awesome! In addition, it is opening night for the play I did lighting design for, "Speech & Debate". Finally, it's also initiation for YDN, meaning that I will no longer be known as Contributing Photographer, but rather Staff Photographer.

Speech and Debate goes up this Friday at 8, then runs Saturday and Sunday at 6:30 and 9:00 both days. It takes place in Nick Chapel (theater in Trumbull), which is a smallish space seating 50-60 people. It has 20 dimmers, and 24 lights. Nice little place really. Naturally I took a set of pictures that can be found on facebook. For more about my lighting design read on!

Ode to Acetaminophen

11/20/08 | by Comp615 [mail] | Categories: The Life, The Mind

So I'm still sick, which is going to ruin my Thanksgiving break. The Health services people have ruled out basically everything except mono. So I went and got blood drawn for that. Unfortunately, I failed my Strep Tests worse than my Philosophy tests....downer. Anyways, to prove that I'm not letting whatever I have get the best of me, I decided to write a little song called "Ode to Acetaminophen" (the active ingredient in Tylenol). In reality, I'm alternating Ibuprofen and that, but it's just such a cool name. Anyways, this is sung to the tune of some song, maybe "Ode to a Superhero" by Wierd Al, or just make up a tune, or read it as beat poetry. Anything should convey the message, song after the hop...

It has been awhile since I last posted, so much has happened! We finished doing the Full Monty, which was a great show, I did some lighting design of my own, and I took more drugs than I have in the last three years. No not club drugs, my favorite drug the Z-pack. Anyways read on for more about my drug usage and life at Yale...

Through the Lens

11/11/08 | by Comp615 [mail] | Categories: Photography, Yale Daily News

In what's being called the best thing since USB, YDN created a new section this week replacing the old "Week in Photos". For the past few months YDN has run the best photos from the previous week on Monday, in full color, on the back of Mondays issue.

This week, however, "Through the Lens" is beginning. It is a photo-essay done by one photographer. I elected to start things off with "Yale in Fall". The design of the page and all photos are my own work. The file is a rather large PDF (~8 MB), I have been unable to alter it with my computer being dead. But please enjoy!

Please keep in mind this is also copyright by the YDN. It may not be redistributed or printed. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THROUGH THE LENS

Hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think, or ideas for future ones...

Pages: 1 ... 16 17 18 ...19 ... 21 ...23 ...24 25 26 ... 29

A collection of musings from my time at Yale along with some thoughts about my "Freshman year of life" in San Francisco.
