No replies yet... that seems odd. I thought the internet was full of weird people looking for weird people...

Thanks for FINALLY posting the order, Eli, we hate you for being late. I'll give you a break--of my KIT-KAT bar! hah. Does anybody else remember that commercial? Huh? I bask in our shared nostalgia for inconsequential pop-culture pablum.

Now, hey, I actually kind of forgot a lot of the pieces since Friday, but that's okay, I had a long weekend. I'm not going to do a review though, because I would feel bad just posting "I don't remember your piece!" for half the order.

Maybe next week I will take the order, but since I'm not on the list of Blog Commanders yet I can't plunk it down here. Also I sent you an e-mail in your UI mail client, I don't know if that's the one you check often, but that's where it is.

Since nobody else is reviewing last Friday, I'm going to try my hand, even though I don't really remember any of it. Because I feel MANIC right now. Any piece that I can't remember, I'm going to pretend like it was what I would have wanted it to be.

1) I'm Adam Hahn- Eric Landuyt

I remember this one.

Eric likes him the parodies, I can tell, and this one was better than his Michael Tabor parody. I thought it was a pretty funny run-down of Adam's best pieces of the past couple years.

2) Damn you Adam Hahn. Damn YOU! - Greg Machlin

I also remember this one.

I think this trend of Greg throwing down off-the-cuff pieces is a good one, because I've liked his last few. They seemed more natural, more funny, and less overwrought.

3) Alex's first attempt at No Shame- Alex

I don't remember this one, new guy. Please come back next week and do another one, I promise I'll remember it. I think the vague non-descriptive title has something to do with it.

I am imagine that this piece was about tortoises.

4) Adam Hahn is STILL my babies daddy- Eli "is infertile" Wilkinson

This one was good until it took an ill turn into science fiction, which I don't think was altogether necessary.

5) The most important man in the industry - By Evan Schenck feat. Two guys

I liked how this piece worked.

6) My last Monologue Ever - Jake (As Adam)

I remember liking this piece but I don't remember the content. I like to imagine that it was about Adam Hahn eating a spiny fruit which was delicious but painful, and him telling us about how good it tasted and how badly it hurt, as sumptuous nectar mixed with his own blood ran down his chin.

7) I Didn't write this because I'm a dirty pervert. I Wrote this because I wanted to see Adam Hahn be a dirty pervert - Luke Christiansen

The idea of having Adam Hahn play all those different roles was good, and I think Hahn was the only person at the show who I would really trust to do something like that. This piece was good in general.

8)My Last Monologue Ever- Jamal River (As Adam Hahn)

I also liked this piece but I can't remember why.

I am pretending that, in it, Adam Hahn kissed all the girls and made them cry, and was forced to make a heartfelt apology in which he cited his addiction to diet pills as the primary reason for his meltdown.

9) My Vicarious Relationship with Adam - Creepy Roommate.

Was kind of creepy, but whatever. It was fine.

10) The Ten Bhumis - Paul Behrendtsen

I remember this one as being nonsensical. I never know what the make of gibberish poetry, but I guess it had a good sound and caused me to feel feelings which were okay instead of bad.

11) An experiment in subtext - Chekov Rosenthal

Er? I like to imagine this one was all in Russian.

12) Shit-for-brains - The REAL Adam Hahn

I got some brain candy, the Cliff's Notes for a Tale of Two Cities, and Bag Tags. I thought this was a heartfelt piece that sort of explained how Adam Hahn felt about No-Shame while still fictionalizing it enough to make it fun.

13) My last monologue ever- by Alyssa Bowman

All of these monologues are hard to remember.

I like to think this one had Adam Hahn plucking the moon out of a clear night skin and buffing the stains out of it with his shirtsleeve, then putting it back in the field of stars to fill that empty space next to the black, seamless horizon, now faceless and featureless but bright, so bright and pretty and beautiful, until at length you realize that it's too bright, and you can't even see the stars for it, and then you weep because you never know what you've lost till it's gone.

14) Ode to Hahn - Dirty Dixie

This was the song one which I'm pretty sure was really good.

15) Manwhich - Flabbergasted Jakers

I agreed with this piece in principle, but I can't agree with Jakers's extremist methods. We need peaceful coexistence with the Manwiches, not war!

16) Hahn is Gone - Cornelius Ashcraft

I liked the dialogue of these piece but I didn't really see it. It was probably pretty good. Everybody laughed at me when I came on stage and I didn't know why, and when I asked Janani she said it was because I came out looking really fey and subservient and kind of gay.

Can anyone else confirm or deny her assessment?

17) Adam's first Monologue ever - Adam Hahn

I think he edited this, it seemed too good for a first piece.

It was about Adam's Martin Short Fan Fiction, and his astronaut helmet idea, and new words he made up, though your recollection of the piece would have been very entertaining to watch.

What was great about the Adam sendoff was seeing the many facets of Adam Hahn as he filtered himself through our writing--the Jake-esque Adam for Jake's piece, the twisted Adam for Eli's, the deranged, Renfield-esque one for mine...truly a talent. He will be missed.

1) I'm Adam Hahn- Eric Landuyt--this was fun. I knew most of the pieces references. And you can't go wrong with dry-humping a regular.

2) Damn you Adam Hahn. Damn YOU! - Greg Machlin--Overwrought, Shenck?? Over*wrought*?! I'LL GIVE YOU OVERWROUGHT! No, but I thank you for the compliment. The "trend" is mostly due to my being in rehearsal.
I dunno. My next piece should be the long-promised serious piece (first in 10 months!), and that one'll be done in advance. I think.

3) Alex's first attempt at No Shame- Alex--I also don't remember this one.

4) Adam Hahn is STILL my babies daddy- Eli "is infertile" Wilkinson
I didn't object to the turn to sci-fi, but I feel like there needed to be a better L.A. punchline.

5) The most important man in the industry - By Evan Schenck feat. Two guys--That was by you, Evan? That was good.

6) My last Monologue Ever - Jake (As Adam)--Adam playing Jake was cool. I think Jake should have other people play him more often.

7) I Didn't write this because I'm a dirty pervert. I Wrote this because I wanted to see Adam Hahn be a dirty pervert - Luke Christiansen
Adam's one of the few people who could pull off the multiple roles.

8)My Last Monologue Ever- Jamal River (As Adam Hahn)
This was well done. All I remember though is Adam leaving at the end.

9) My Vicarious Relationship with Adam - Creepy Roommate.
Did she actually give her name as creepy roommate? I thought this was kind of sweet, but maybe I wasn't listening closely enough.

10) The Ten Bhumis - Paul Behrendtsen--original, daring, and wacky--a very strong debut--but it might have worked better if he'd had ten copies & ten actors. I made a point of encouraging him to come back, so hopefully he'll be back.

11) An experiment in subtext - Chekov Rosenthal
This was about the stalkerish guy. I liked how dark this was--I don't think I've seen Alisa get this dark before. Nicely done.

12) Shit-for-brains - The REAL Adam Hahn--A great final bow.

13) My last monologue ever- by Alyssa Bowman
I liked this, but I don't remember it. Sorry, Alyssa.

14) Ode to Hahn - Dirty Dixie
This was great.

15) Manwhich - Flabbergasted Jakers
This was good.
I wonder what would happen if Jake wrote a dark and serious piece?

16) Hahn is Gone - Cornelius Ashcraft
Enjoyable and poignant.

17) Adam's first Monologue ever - Adam Hahn
Very enjoyable.
I'll bet they *loved* that when it first came out.

Eli, if you want me to post the order in the comments next time, just let me know; I'll keep track of who does what when and post it when the entry is created--if this would save you some time...

Oh, hey, and Brian Lenth's piece in the Sunday concert of new composers at the Music Building was really good--it was for oboe & mandolin. The performers were accomplished, too--the piece is not easy to play. Brian! Submit an announcement next time! I would have missed a very good piece of new music if you hadn't told me about it.

"I remember liking this piece but I don't remember the content. I like to imagine that it was about Adam Hahn eating a spiny fruit which was delicious but painful, and him telling us about how good it tasted and how badly it hurt, as sumptuous nectar mixed with his own blood ran down his chin."

That's a great idea for a piece. You should do it... before someone else does!

"Oh, hey, and Brian Lenth's piece in the Sunday concert of new composers at the Music Building was really good--it was for oboe & mandolin. The performers were accomplished, too--the piece is not easy to play."

No indeed! When I got home from the concert I practiced the song for hours, but alas, could not master the lightning-speed proficiency needed to execute the many extended mandolin solos. Nor were the oboe trills and shimmies much easier! Hats off to Brian and His Mandoloboe Orchestra!

Actually, Brian's piece was for clarinet and marimba, not oboe and mandolin. It's pretty easy to confuse the mandolin with the marimba, though, it usually takes an expert to distinguish the two because they are so similar.

Oh Greg, I'm just messin' wi' ya.

I don't really write reviews because I don't have useful things to say about pieces, usually, but I'll say the piece that stuck in my mind was Jake's Adam monologue. It was more like monolawesome. Jake doing such a piece would be funny, but making Adam define "browm" and then say he had a "bathroom poopmergency" was some special hilaritus. Long ago I heard talk of Arlen writing the most depressing piece he could and then giving it to Tabor to read in his Tabor style. This never transpired, but it would be fun to see such counterintuitive castification once in a while. Can Arlen read a Flabbergasted Jakers piece, just once? Please?

Fucking hell. I knew that was a fucking marimba. Not a fucking mandolin. DAMNIT. And a clarinet. I play STRINGS! I don't screw around with woodwinds or percussion.

I stand justly chastised. But the review stands. Darn good piece. This is what happens when I post at 3 AM on very little sleep.

Piece #1--the weird video piece--was kinda cool, too. And the mini-operetta with the two divas (piece #5) was also good.
