OMG I'm actually commenting. I am really bored.

1) Happy Tips for the Companion Challenged -by Sammy

-Overall I was happy with how this came out. I did some fat trimming before teh show, and I think there were a few more that can be cut. But I loved the way Daisy and Cassie performed it. MUCH better than if I had done it myself. :)

2) Pot of Poopy: A Poem -by Dr. Mondo Buttplug

-My memory is a bit fuzzy on this one. But I think I thought it was funny and silly... which in my mind are good things.


3) If God Gives you Lemons Pour the Juice in Someone's Eye -by Some Punk (Eli)

-Again I am a bit fuzzy (I've been a complete space lately I'm sorry). But again I remember liking it... sorry I don't have more to say other than that.

3.5) What a Wigger - by Calvin Pennybacker

-heehee

4) We Swear to God We're Pro-gay in Real Life -by the Tripple B's

-This was entertaining and had some really good moments. The end was a bit predictable, but I'm ok with that. It helped that they were off book for this and were really playing off each other.

5) Bite -by Sammy

-This was a draft of a story I wrote for my creative writing class... and it didn't exactly turn out the way I wanted it to. I thought that Justin and me saying the lines of the other characters would help break up the long narrative, but I am not sure that it worked. Also I realized that my story didn't really say anything. It's just me doing a bad impression of Chuck Palahniuk. Oh well. I tried.

6) Bone Marrow - by Mirri

-Gaahhh I don;t remember! I need something to jog my memory here!

6.5) Snickers Dickers - by Calvin

-I thought this was great. It almost would have been even funnier if he had just eaten that snickers and that was it. Everyone got the joke right away, and it was good :)

7) Traditions -by Asher Stuhlman
-again... drawing a blank. So Sorry!

8) Organic Humans -by Luke Christensen

- I liked most of this one. I mostly liked the way it started, with the captive audience thing. I was lost in some parts... I didn't get what the cheese meant, if it meant anything. It may have just been cheese cause you know... cheese is really fucking good. I guess I took issue/ got offended / was pissed off by the line about how the girl or whoever was skinnier and the throwing up thing and you were glad about it. Maybe that was the point. It did evoke something in me, so good job I guess. And I shouldn't be talking about offensive. I called a woman a dog in my story.

Still interesting piece.

9) 8 Fantasies about My Writing Teacher who I barely know - by Mirri

-I really liked this cause I have had crushes on teacher/ profs before. (and yes. Age of Dinos was one of them for me too). Also it was just funny and also really really sweet. I loved the ending one. It wrapped it up very nicely.

9.5) Feets -by Kjai, Justin, Theresa, Cassi

-This was just great. Enough said.

10) Two Dreams -by Katy Baggs

-This I also liked. It was full of crazy! (The Good kind of crazy). I wonder what it is like to be in Katy's mind. It's probably a magical and terrifying place.

OH! I just remembered! was 7. the minotaur piece?

If it was:

Of the things I have seen you do, this was my favorite. Minotaurs are jackasses.

If not:
ignore this comment/ apply it to whichever one was the minotaur one.

1) The joke played itself out almost immediately but somehow remained funny. Kinda like that one song you listen to but never get tired of.

2) I wasn't a big fan of this one, but I'm not a big fan of poems on the stage in general, so this doesn't mean a weak piece.

3) Nice use of stage lights.

3.5) Gah.

4) Pretty good. It didn't have the brain-melting qualities of your previous piece, but it amused.

5) This seemed awfully familiar for some reason.

6) Meh.

6.5) The gender mismatch of the performer and the line made this piece amazing.

7) Yeah, this was the minotaur one, and yeah, this was mine. The name's not immediately indicative of the contents because I couldn't think of a title that didn't give away the plot.

8) I don't remember.

9) I alternated between contemplating personal fantasies and trying to visualize Mirri's. Well done.

10) !!!!!!$@t(*&^%$@(&%!(!!!!!!
