Just another girl, from a small southwestern town, come to the big city in the hopes of being named hostess of the East Central welcome wagon. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you -- the one, the only -- Esscusse M'Byootee. (Be sure to watch until the end so's to catch the gold.)
(via omg blog)___ Item 2: TELL ME TO BREAK A LIMB.
Tonight I take to the boards in my first stage performance in more than a decade, as part of an "Alumni Show" send off for my high school drama director. Amidst a collection of short plays and scenes, I appear in a little Mark Twain montage thing, portraying Noah (of "The Ark" fame) and Tom Sawyer. So, look for me -- the oldest one the cast, the one wearing the overalls. Yikes. One thing I will say for high school drama: it sure makes college theatre look good.
___ Item 3: SAY "VIVA!"
This past Sunday evening, I sat...just stunned, amazed, enthralled, appalled, entranced, enticed, titillated, scintillated, generally perplexed but utterly transfixed. In short, I was all agog as a result of my encounter with the new VH1 experiment in CelebReality, Viva Hollywood! If you haven't caught it yet, you just must. I'm even considering running recaplets here, I'm so fascinated. (The screencaps alone could be reason enough.) But in the meantime, check out the ever hilarious Guanabee's liveblogging commentary. (And if you think I should hit this show with some StinkyLulu, let me know in comments.)
___ Item 4: PROGNOSTICATE THIS!
Yes, I'll keep padding "To Dos Day" with this announcement until I have a second to comb through the contributions thus far. So, yes, I'm still contemplating a miniature Supporting Actresses version Nathaniel's 2nd annual Actress Psychic Contest. If you would like to play Supporting Actress prognosticator, please do consider joining up. Nathaniel's even posted his April Fool's predictions for the category to help y'all out. I'll run a real contest if I get 25+ folks (we're barely into double digits now) interested in playing. To indicate your interest, shoot me a quick email and tell me your top 6 picks for Best Supporting Actress 2008, with a bonus/tie-breaker of your most likely Razzie nominee. (For those of you who have already submitted, thanks & look for some followup in the next weeks.)
___ Item 5: HOTHOUSE CLOTHESHORSE.
That's a hint for tomorrow's entry in my new series, which I'm going to call something like "Assorted Random Cinematic Hotness" or "ARCH Moments" or something... The actual name of the series yet alludes me. But the spirit is clear: unanticipated queer pleasures of the masculine spectacular. So be sure to look for tomorrow's entry.
___ Item 6: OVERLOOKED IN 1999?
By a fairly definitive margin, 1999 will absorb The Smackdowners' Supporting Actress attention for May. So that opens my question for you: what performances should be on my radar for "Overlooked in 1999"? Remember, I'm always game for options well off Oscar's radar. Please do share your favorite suggestions in comments.
Have at it, lovelies!
