A new world?!

I am still on a search to find the perfect topic for my dissertation (see the private entry next to this). To be honest, I should have started the research by now.

Currently reading what I shouldn't be, and thoroughly enjoying Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. I must say it bears some dangerous similarities to The Da Vinci Code but I'm hoping it won't be as easy to crack as its predecessor. Still, wonderfully written.

Dedication pays off. Over the summer I have been going to the gym every day after work. My aim was simply to get healthier and more toned. Plus, all those pheromones released naturally makes me feel much happier. Well, I went shopping yesterday and I've gone down a 'trouser size', from 10 to 8 (UK)! Fantastic. One complaint though: why is gym music always so shite?

Having been seriously influenced by lady_zorro (brilliant musical by the way; email being sent now) and rinara, I've decided to take up writing again. I looked at my creative folder the other day and saw how many unfinished pieces I have. It upset me.

I'd ideally like to start painting again as well but I just have no money to buy the canvas. Pah!

Love you all xx

Choreographer-from-hell and the badly-lit Dreamcoat

music: Close Every Door - Joseph

Am I the only person who doesn’t think all that much of Bill Kenwright? Why does he keep getting work? I saw Joseph yesterday, (first time I’ve seen it directed by Kenwright, and first time at the West-End), and was a little disappointed. All right, so the material itself isn’t particularly strong; but there’s no need to drag it down to such a level. The set was wonderfully camp, as were many of the actors, but I felt the need to shoot the lighting operators, and for a show that concentrates on spectacle and camp over storyline, it’s beyond me why they chose actors over dancers for the chorus. No one was in time and I blame the choreographer for providing the most unoriginal routines I’ve seen. There’s only so much ‘acting-out-the-words-through-dance’ I can take…(pet hate). So, the words say ‘shoots rose out of the ground’ – you don’t need to clasp your arms above your head and stretch up to the ceiling. It just happened so many times.

Saying that, I hope they had chosen actors over dancers…otherwise it’s a sorry outlook for the majority of the cast if they’re looking to pursue a career in theatre.

The talent was so-so (for a West-End production I wasn’t impressed by many of them – albeit it was a small theatre, they were still West-End prices) and although it couldn’t have been helped, I can’t forgive the theatre designers for placing the orchestra in the stage so for the whole performance, I could see the conductor’s head bobbing up and down onstage. Unacceptable considering the price of the tickets, although I understand that there was little the production company could do.

I couldn’t understand why the irritating American (the whole place was filled with Americans by the way) felt the need to shush people (who happened to be kids from her country anyway) through the performance. Joseph is a Mickey Mouse musical, it’s not the height of theatre…what do you expect? The way she was carrying on you’d have thought she’d got tickets to see Faust. And judging by her Southern drawl, she’ll probably be glad she didn’t.

All in all, I had a laugh, both with and at the company. And please please stop, Mr Kenwright.

You scored 88% Morality, 44% Killer Instinct, and 11% Insanity!

You are sweet, but your job as stripper makes you less than innocent and your longing for Hartigan coupled with the fact that you were kidnapped as a child by a homocidal paedophile probably knocked some screws loose somewhere. Still, you're every guy's wet dream, right?

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
