chavisory's post-it notes

If the monsters get in, we go to the roof.

One of my ASMs was not at rehearsal. So I included a props preset note in the rehearsal report. Then my advisor said.. You shouldn't include stuff like that in the report. You just pass the note to your ASM verbally. -.- I throw this now useless report in her face! >:( but no I didn't really asked by Anonymous

thankyoufive:

Whomp whomp.

Yeah, I don’t always always put presets in my reports. But if a director turns to me and specifically says “THIS GETS PRESET AT THIS TIME”, I make a note of it just to show that it’s been addressed and that they don’t have to tell me a thousand times.

However, I have run into instances when a designer (or more frequently the TD) gets into tech and sees “Oh, you preset that like this? That can’t work” and they prrooooobably could have been avoided if the note had been made in the report.

But. C’est la vie. Listen to your advisor because you’re in school. Do things your way when you graduate.

Some of the most important lessons I learned from from the mentors in my internship program…were about what kind of stage manager I didn’t want to be.

You know about the Amtrak writers’ “residency,” right?

It currently has a loooong waiting list of applicants, but….it exists.

The reason I need subtitles when watching Doctor Who is not because Peter Capaldi is Scottish. To be perfectly honest, I find his speech patterns easier to follow than Clara’s.

No, the reason I need subs for the both of them is because they both talk a mile a minute. And between that and the frequently loud ambient noise that producers love so much these days… yeah, things get very hard to follow very easily and very quickly.

I often had the same problem with the 11th Doctor. And I don’t remember it being nearly as bad with 9 and 10, at least in the speed department— the ambient noise, on the other hand, has always been a frustration.

I need subtitles for almost everything lately.  Like, I can do without them, but…tv watching is overall a more comprehensible experience with them.

Recently I actually went on a rescue operation for horseshoe crabs…they come up on the beach during full moons for mating, but if they get turned upside down like that and don’t manage to right themselves, they get killed by gulls.  So we went up and down the beach flipping over all the upside down ones.

So there’s going to need to be a talk with my pastor about what selective mutism entails and why I cannot be a song leader…

Rest stops on highways are liminal spaces where the veil is thin and nobody can tell me differently

Explain

The explanation is that liminal spaces are in between places that bridge Here with There, so in fairy tales we often have the Fairy Ring, the Forest Clearing, the Sudden Misty Foggy Forest, the Bridge, the River, graveyards, in some cases

We also have a ton of american urban mythology around famous roadways and sites off the sides of roads

Archetypes like these occur to mark the places in the world where the veil goes thin and humans can have extra-worldly experiences, out of the ordinary way of living

So why wouldn’t transient spaces like rest stops where everyone is just passing through from one place to the next, never stopping for too long, not be a liminal space where spirits frequent, too

Especially since nobody would know if they were real or not

This is how I feel about airports. I hate going through security, but once I’m in, I’m nowhere and everywhere. Neither here nor there.

i’ve always felt this way about airports. 

like all the airports were one place that was unrelated to the cities or countries they’re inside of.

i guess now i’d think of it as like being in the vortex or something.

Athens, GA.  All of it.

For a good while, I firmly believe it was geographically unplottable.  If you tried to follow MapQuest directions there, you’d never arrive.  You’d be on Loop 10 for hours.

(We did finally get there, me and my dad and my brother, for my college tour of UGA.  I could feel it as soon as we actually managed to drive into downtown, and never stopped feeling it while I lived there.  Veil thin.  Most other people didn’t seem to notice.  Some did.)
