IC Order, 4/21/06

Chubsy Chub Theatre, 4/21/06

There were some announcements, which Adam has. To the best of my memory:

  • There are several theatrical events going on soon, including the New Play Festival and Cabaret. For Cabaret details, see http://www.citycircle.org.
  • Yes, Shame happens every other week at City High. There is no show this coming Tuesday, but the one after that there is.
  • No Shame will be performing at Riverfest at two different times. See previous post on this blog for details.
  • Eric Landuyt has a PATV show you might enjoy.
  • Next week is Dead Week, which means pieces performed next week will not be eligible for the semester's Best Of. We will announce the Best Of order next week. PLEASE POST YOUR NOMINATIONS (I'll make a post that you can comment on with your nominations).
  • Aprille is retiring from No Shame after this season, which makes next week her last non-BONS show. If you are so inclined, she would feel happy if you'd cast her in your piece.

Correction: My show is on UITV, not PATV. That's UITV, channel 4 in the dorms and channel 17 elsewhere. It should be starting at 8:05 pm on Sunday. I hope you all tune in.

This show is an example of what No Shame should be like. This was like the shows of old (which, for newcomer me, was the earlier part of last semester), except that, I think, it had a very nice mixture of serious and hilaous. Speaking of which, Adam has had some really awesome serious pieces of late.

I meant, "Emmanuel Lewis Night," but what I typed was even better.

1. "The Return to Pants Manor II: The Hauntening," by Jonathan Shelton
Glorious. Jon disassembling the tent and discovering his pants were as touching of moments as we’ve seen all year.
2. "I Don't Know," by Eric Landuyt
I wish now I’d put some music with it. But can you pick out all the songs I referenced? (Hint: there are four)
3. "Improper Flag Use by Bobby Evers," by Bobby Evers
Bobby, you know you have to burn that flag now, don’t you?
3.5. "From the Archives, 2003: Compromised Condiments," by Aprille Clarke
I liked how her insides were now 40% cleaner.
4. "You Were a Falling Star, But You Didn't Fall for Very Long," a song by Dillion Sunshine
The encores were a nice touch.
5. "Not a Real Comic Book," by Evan Schenck
This was so much like a conversation I would actually have with my friends.
6. "She Never Really Did Love Me, OR Basket Full of Easter Eggs," by Patrick Ashcraft
We hadn’t heard from Hector in a while, and it was good to see him again. Too bad that he’ll now be on the run for double murder.
7. "Possible a Rhythm," by Cool Jesse
I liked it.
8. "A Modest Proposal," by Mortimer Snert
A clever piece. Juxtaposing the writing of the letters was a nice touch. The ending was funny.
9. "Old School Christianity Today, OR Why the Fight to End Poverty is Going Nowhere," by Eli Wilkinson
In case anyone was wondering, Eli asked me to really spit on him. However, banging his head on the floor was neither intentional nor planned. But it did make my character seem even more like an asshole. I know that was the intent of the piece, but I think it could have used something more than just “Hey, look how cruel and sanctimonious Christian missionaries are.”
10. "A Feminist Deconstruction of Golf," by Dick Roberts
I enjoyed this one. I never knew the true meaning of “Titleist.”
10.5. "From the Archives, 2003: Dangerously Close," by Aprille Clarke
The eating toenails thing was out of nowhere, which is not necessarily bad, just very random.
11. "Everybody Is Gay for Someone," by Nick May
Very interesting. It took some guts for Nick to do this.
12. "Endless Bummer," by Tim Busse
Pretty good. If those letters are actually what real people in Tim’s rehab group said, that makes it even better.
13. "The Tragic Tale of Haystack Calhoun and Dirty Slug McGee," by Eric Landuyt
I actually take a bit of issue with the description of this piece. Dirty Slug McGee’s hatred of Mexicans was a minor character trait and a random sidenote to the larger story. Definitively describing this piece as being about hating Mexicans is inaccurate.
13.5. "A Hilarious Prank," by Lilly Richard
Oh, so good. Very clever.
14. "Ecuse to Be Loud at You," by Sean Shatto (Noise art in the dark)
I could’ve done without this piece.
15. "Time Goes By So Slowly," by Aprille Clarke
A very original idea. Eight-year-olds are sneaky little devils.
15.5. "Jenga! Jenga! Jenga! Jenga!" by Katy Baggs
I already knew the punchline because Katy had shared her idea with me earlier in the day, but it still worked. Someone taking a game of Jenga that seriously is darkly funny.
16. "Battory Overpass," by Adam Hahn
Another great story by Adam. I wonder, are his pieces just accounts of events that actually happened to him? If so, wow.
17. "Teapot Bob," by the Touchdowns
Unbelievably catchy.

This was a really good show and a return to form for No Shame. I do think we overcrowded the order a little bit (says the man who did two lengthy pieces), but there was a lot of variety and creativity. Good show, everyone.

1. "The Return to Pants Manor II: The Hauntening," by Jonathan Shelton

This was a good piece and a solid conclusion (?) to the saga of Pants Manor. Katy Baggs' performance was undoubtedly the highlight of it. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that the single Twix bar was eaten by the nefarious lawyer some time ago.

2. "I Don't Know," by Eric Landuyt

This was okay but perhaps it seemed a little derivative of other songs.

3. "Improper Flag Use by Bobby Evers," by Bobby Evers

I'm sorry I laughed during the part where I was explaining how to properly fold the flag. The essential absurdity of the piece hit me and I lost it for a few seconds. I really liked the way this was written.

3.5. "From the Archives, 2003: Compromised Condiments," by Aprille Clarke

I'm pretty sure that laundry detergent is poisonous.

4. "You Were a Falling Star, But You Didn't Fall for Very Long," a song by Dillion Sunshine

The best part of this piece was the way that D. Sunshine stopped, and then started playing again. After Patrick left the stage I wasn't sure whether I should start my piece or not.

5. "Not a Real Comic Book," by Evan Schenck

The reason, Eric, that this sounded like a real conversation you might have with your friends is because it is, in fact, mostly a real conversation I hand with my friend. I liked how the audience kind of gasped when I said that Citizen Kane wasn't the best movie ever, and I also appreciated the one guy in the audience who cheered for the film "M".

6. "She Never Really Did Love Me, OR Basket Full of Easter Eggs," by Patrick Ashcraft

(1) Aprille open-mouth kissing Hector = hilarious (2) Hector's positioning of the corpses on the couch and such = creepy but hilarious.

7. "Possible a Rhythm," by Cool Jesse

Interesting.

8. "A Modest Proposal," by Mortimer Snert

I didn't enjoy this piece very much for some reason. All of the elements were there to produce something good but I don't think I "got" it.

9. "Old School Christianity Today, OR Why the Fight to End Poverty is Going Nowhere," by Eli Wilkinson

I didn't know that Eric was actually going to spit all over Eli, but then he did and it was a little surprising.

10. "A Feminist Deconstruction of Golf," by Dick Roberts

This was funny but I think he deserved the D+.

10.5. "From the Archives, 2003: Dangerously Close," by Aprille Clarke

Gross.

11. "Everybody Is Gay for Someone," by Nick May

This was a very interesting piece and it's good of Nick to break the mold and put on a really thought-provoking piece.

12. "Endless Bummer," by Tim Busse

This was a funny slice of life indeed.

13. "The Tragic Tale of Haystack Calhoun and Dirty Slug McGee," by Eric Landuyt

This was, in fact, my favorite piece of the night. I thought it was hilarious from every angle. My favorite parts were how the backwoods narrator used the word "irreperably," and how flipping sheep and goats over logically leads to being called "Haystack."

13.5. "A Hilarious Prank," by Lilly Richard

Excellent punchline.

14. "Ecuse to Be Loud at You," by Sean Shatto

I liked this one a lot, actually. It reminded me of the scene at the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey that represented consciousness expansion at the breaking of the light barrier, I guess because it sounded similar. On the other hand, it gave my girlfriend a headache.

15. "Time Goes By So Slowly," by Aprille Clarke

This was a very good piece and I thought it was most interesting how the woman was determined to have sex with an eight-year old body without actually being a pedophile.

15.5. "Jenga! Jenga! Jenga! Jenga!" by Katy Baggs

Oh, Katy Baggs, you might be a horrible person for doing this but it was still funny.

16. "Battory Overpass," by Adam Hahn

This was an interesting, funny story, with an uplifting moral.

No, wait, it had a highly negative moral! Good point, though.

17. "Teapot Bob," by the Touchdowns

The performance was solid but the song was just a little too simple for my taste.

My memory can be horrible and I've kinda forgotten the specifics of some of these...

1. "The Return to Pants Manor II: The Hauntening," by Jonathan Shelton (Man finds love with ill-fated tent)

Wonderful. So wonderful. Touching and hilarious. Plus a tent. Awesomeness.

2. "I Don't Know," by Eric Landuyt (A capella musical performance)

I don't remember this one very well, but I do remember that I really liked it. No that's not a contraction, shut up.

3. "Improper Flag Use by Bobby Evers," by Bobby Evers (Bobby don't know crap about American flag etiquette)

Pretty good. I remember I liked the phrasing of some of the dialogue.

3.5. "From the Archives, 2003: Compromised Condiments," by Aprille Clarke (Man passes off laundry detergent for cheese)

No comment.

4. "You Were a Falling Star, But You Didn't Fall for Very Long," a song by Dillion Sunshine (Patrick, in a funny beard, plays power bass and sings us a song)

I thought it was a little thin on content--I like things with meaning, however it was pretty damn funny. And very realistic--at least, it jived with my conception of the sort of rocker Patrick was portraying.

5. "Not a Real Comic Book," by Evan Schenck (Does Jesus count as a superhero?)

Hehe.

6. "She Never Really Did Love Me, OR Basket Full of Easter Eggs," by Patrick Ashcraft (Hector solves his love problems through violence)

Eh.

7. "Possible a Rhythm," by Cool Jesse (poetry performance)

Like almost all of Jesse's pieces, this was lost on me. Also, as I recall, it started fast, went fast and ended quickly. No time to get your bearings--if there were any to get.

8. "A Modest Proposal," by Mortimer Snert (who's stalking whom?? Who's suiciding whom??)

I liked it.

9. "Old School Christianity Today, OR Why the Fight to End Poverty is Going Nowhere," by Eli Wilkinson (Christians are jerks who are mean to starving Africans)

*laugh* Ohh boy. Eli makes a great starving African. And to think that I used to think I was thin...

Enjoyable, painful, good.

10. "A Feminist Deconstruction of Golf," by Dick Roberts (a treatise on the phallocentric nature of golf)

Oh wow. I will never think of golf again. I loved this piece. I would have given him an "A"--well, except for the fact what he wrote probably had nothing to do with whatever he learned in the class.

10.5. "From the Archives, 2003: Dangerously Close," by Aprille Clarke (Woman hates racism, eating fingernails)

I all but missed this piece, busy freaking out, swearing under my breath about how bad of an idea my piece was etc.

11. "Everybody Is Gay for Someone," by Nick May (Nick comes out, selectively, romatically)

This was a poem I wrote that afternoon, somehow thought of turning into a No Shame piece, threw together in about 45 minutes and then ran with before I knew was happening and could stop myself. It seems to have turned out well, though I am pretty sure I rushed my words when I was on stage. In the name of catching anything you missed, so I appear arrogant and not that anyone cares the script's online: we are all gay for someone.

12. "Endless Bummer," by Tim Busse (Tim recounts his fellow rehabbers' letters to their drugs of choice)

Expressively played.

13. "The Tragic Tale of Haystack Calhoun and Dirty Slug McGee," by Eric Landuyt (An old-timey tale of sheep-flipping and Mexican-hating)

Heheh. I was party to the creation of this one. Well played.

13.5. "A Hilarious Prank," by Lilly Richard ("Wait for it...wait for it..." but it's not what we thought!)

Ohhh, so awesome. The members of this group of lets-sit-in-the-very-back always to the best stuff *thinks of Sad, Sad Alien, among others*

14. "Ecuse to Be Loud at You," by Sean Shatto (Noise art in the dark)

I usually adore Sean's pieces--especially when he just stomps around the stage with a guitar making up shit as he goes along--but the noise pieces are a waste of five minutes. On the upside, this one wasn't as bad as the last one last semester and didn't set my teeth on edge quite as many times.

15. "Time Goes By So Slowly," by Aprille Clarke (Woman unknowingly does it with an 8-year-old)

Wowza. No Shame is gonna take quite a hit when Aprille leaves.

15.5. "Jenga! Jenga! Jenga! Jenga!" by Katy Baggs (A loss at Jenga cuts Katy deeply)

I should play Jenga someday. One of those life experiences.

16. "Battory Overpass," by Adam Hahn (a discarded car battery sparks a string of troubles for our narrator)

Yet another good, strong Adam piece from who knows where. Mmmmm.

17. "Teapot Bob," by the Touchdowns (musical performance featuring drum, ukelele, banjo, and trombone)

Good end to great show.

Hehe, tents.

To be a upright lenient being is to procure a philanthropic of openness to the mankind, an skill to trusteeship uncertain things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in very outermost circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something very important relating to the condition of the righteous compulsion: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a jewel, something somewhat fragile, but whose very item handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
