Drag racing would have to be on the 28th though. Montgomery Motorsports Park is just across town!

We will have plenty of southern homestyle cookin', Junkyard runs, and general socializin'. I don't have as much room as Scott, but that's alright :crazy:

I was just going to bring my acoustic and forget having to bring an amp. So I would say small.

04-20-2010, 08:51 PM
Okay, 225w tube amp and 4x10 it is! Now I don't have to haul all the fridges around! :D

I'm kidding. Sort of.

*EDIT*
I've got a spare acoustic I can bring if someone is showing up and can't bring along a guitar. The more the merrier, I always say.

Ok I usually don't say that. But I've been meaning to start.

So I'm gonna.

You do improv? Long-form, or regular?


By the way, I'm not going to be there, either. I was actually trying to pull something off, but the wife's trip comes first.

Short-form, "Whose Line" type stuff. We're going to be giving long-form a shot later on this year, I think. Right now we're doing a "comedy sports" format, the host acts as the referee and the match is between two teams of three. It's a lot of fun!

I absolutely hated the somewhat-current 'Whose line is it anyway' format, as it wasn't real improv. Real improv is occasionally screwing up, and trying to get your way back out of it....the mistakes that actors make is as funny as the work they're doing flawlessly.

It's not doing prepared material and having plants in the audience shout out stuff you have already worked on when 'audience participation' pieces come up.

I thought about doing a bit or two should I ever show up at a SF event, such as 'Puppet Show', as it always generates a laugh or two even though it's an old format. I was working on creating a bit called 'Stunt Double', when I had to get out of doing improv (had to change jobs, the new job at the time was during showtime)....but alas', maybe someday.

Improv is a hell of a lot more fun to do than traditional stage acting....after a few years of being out of the 'business', I tried doing a traditional, three-act mainstage play back in 2004....and I couldn't stand it, the monotonous repetition of saying the same goddamned lines, over and over again, just got to be too tedious, and I bailed.

DarkBlueMerc

I wasn't aware that you were so familiar with improv. I usually use "Whose Line" as a basic description since most people just stare back blankly when you tell them "improv."

I've never done any straight theatre. No real burning desire to try it. I like the freedom of improv, and I'm usually able to think pretty quickly, so improv really appeals to me.

So, do you think we can change my power steering box there? The pitman puller i bought broke while trying to remove the pitman arm. And it's soaked in CLP and PB Blaster right now.
Anyone have a good pitman are puller they could bring?
Everything else has been recently removed, so the bolts and the lines shouldn't be that though to get off.
Thanks.
