Shakespearean earworm!
I haven't gotten to listen to these yet on account of needing to reinstall Flash on my computer, but I totally have Duke Orsino's speech stuck in my head, as well as a complicated musical setting of the text -- I can hear it in my head, but when I sing it, the odd intervals come out all wrong.

I'm curious to see what's under the covers once my computer is cooperating.

Good morning, Jen =)

Good morning to you! It is a snowy one here...pretty, fluffy flakes.

I love "Twelfth Night", I must admit. I've never done it, but I worked as props mistress for a production in college. It was done in the round and each scene featured roll-on carts that were piled high with amazingly artful and convincing fake food. My job was to "redress" the carts for each scene change (the bottoms of the carts lifted out and all the dishes and food were glued to them).

The nice part was that my area was not actually backstage - but behind the audience, so I got to hear the play in its entirety each night. Those are some lovely lines to have dancing in ones head.

Have a good day!

Fluffly snow sounds delightful -- we've had a variety of precipitation-forms, and none of them that pretty. Sleet, rain, freezing rain... It was dropping nice dry pellets of ice when I started walking to work this morning, and switched to plunking down big drops of wetness somewhere along the way -- I think I preferred the ice!

I was the sound engineer for our Twelfth Night, so I got to see the whole thing from the booth (but with a headset, so the prose was a bit marred with the SM's cues and headset banter!) The sound was great, though. It was set in medieval Galicia, and we had some gorgeous, weird instrumentation: tabors and Iberian bagpipes, carnival music. I think I've still got a cassette and possibly even the original DAT tapes floating around someplace. I wonder if there are still any DAT players floating around...
