where art thy king?







i'm in a club called theatre compass and we do really cool theatre and acting stuff and this time round we're doing a play titled THE SEARCH FOR ODYSSEUS. it's about this kid on this hunt for his father. there's loads of innuendoes both dramatic and humorous. it's grecian btw, heh. amazing, eh? but truly, a play with so many hidden agendas and slick stuff... such sneaky people those greeks were!

the cast and rest of the crew are working like mad to make this an incredible experience for everyone and i'm really excited to see how everything comes together next week (: applaud, please!

the last picture is incredibly pensive on the actors' part. i wonder what when through their minds when i took this picture. actually, what i really wonder is whether they noticed my camera going *click click*! hah!

mindless improbability

something i wrote during conceptualisation & structure.

My name is Qwerty Uiop. I live in a box. The box my home is made of five squares of bricks. The northward square commonly known as a wall holds a frosted window lined with cockroaches. It has a square of caterpillar cocoons in the middle. The curtains are half finished- the silkworms have yet to finish their work, slow aren’t they? I sit on the wooden chair, splinters poking out from everywhere possible that it is amazing that in the mouse years I have lived in this box, I have never once needed to take out a splint from my skin. All my furniture was and is the like.

In the mouse years I have lived in this box, I have departed my home at exactly 7 every Saturday to go to the market to get food. It is a tradition. I help the shopkeeper to persuade people to buy more of their things and I get some food and living supplies in return. A cheery bunch the people, persons who buy things.

When I return several hours later, I place sheets of pressed paper on the rectangular table and remove a box of paints and set of paint brushes.

i'm thinking of continuing this piece. hmm...

and so teacher, missus wee tells us to write a bad piece of work,

I am a cockroach in a tall boy’s hair and I attempt to crawl into his butt crack. In a house ten miles away, an old man is pouring water, Mr Nickelson, his house is rusty and old, well just like him, he is old, but I am young and alive until the tall boy sits down where I will be crushed and dead while Mr Nickelson lives on? This is incredulous not to mention ridiculous. In matters of sausages and eggs, I will be nothing but a flattened grotesque crunchy piece of bug meat while Mr Nickelson in Street 11 of Howdrewell Drive carries on living his –oh please don’t make me say it, old life eating ham and cheese.

missus wee's interpreted advice at the end? To write badly is to not think and just write, type, the works.

trianges on a tuesday, day two


an improved version during first video production pract.

the secret diary of the jabberwocky alice killed

it is march fifth

i am in a cave. i am in my cave. it is a cave big enough for me yet not too big that a human can enter while i sleep. it is dark but there is a small light at the end. those pea humans venture ever only so far, at most five feet from the light before they disappear back into the light. it is certainly most amusing. but after the same thing happens one too many times, sleep overcomes and i surrender.


pfft.

a short piece of irritation

"Statistics can be such a drag."
- Take Back The Instant, General Elektriks

Before I write. I must read. It is such a pain, such a drag. I do not want to read, I want to write. Wait, maybe I want neither but i am still pained and care, i do not.

Give me some paper and a pen I demand!

I sit down ready to write but then I begin to stare aimlessly into the blank paper. They are no words or markings of any sort! How am I supposed to write like this?

My thoughts are playing with hoola hoops in my head. They aren’t being very helpful and it is frustrating me to no end.

I need to write something! I must go somewhere! There is words choking me. It is quite soon and I lose my voice too.

All of us, all of we, all of more than one are so desperate to get some where, get our name out there.

My focus is lost and I throw my hands up in the air. My head hits the desk.

Let’s face it. We’ve reached a dead-end.
