news and bad news. Didn't I already start off a
chronicle like this? LOL. Anyway - the good news is
Spencer was funny as shit. The end of his song will
probably get a laugh that rivals the "cock" line from
bad news is that's probably your loudest laugh the
whole show, and it comes halfway through.
I thought I conquered it. I wrote it with the
climax being a kick-ass cool ending (it may still be),
but now that it's all recorded and done - Spencer may
do what he did last time: Bring the audience to a huge
high - and then have it kind've fade away by the
taking a shower after my last take, going through the
flow of the show and was all giddy at just how well
Spence's song turned out. I didn't think it was that
funny when I wrote it - but a few ad-libs and
it's easily the funniest thing I've done in 4tvs. The
delivery is dead-on and it will "knock 'em dead"...but
it's the highpoint for "lowest common denominator"
next part is funny as hell too, and Dewey's part -
though not funny, is gonna be awesome...then the
ending is totally solid with everyone on location and
just a killer little production piece - but
DAAAAAAAAAMN: nothing is as funny as that song. I
really think I made the same mistake
it didn't READ like that though!!!!! LOL. I was
so aware while I was writing it to make
SURE the climax hit at the END this time!!
I think I even wrote about it in here! The
pacing! Well, it is too early to tell. Maybe audiences
will appreciate all the cool shit that happens in the
2nd half just as much as the belly-laughs from more
gay sexual innuendos. LOL. I don't know though -
Spence says some lines that I don't believe have ever
been uttered in any setting. DAAAAAMN. And G is right
before him again too - with a bunch of laughs. FUCK.
Fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck. Anyway - the
may be just me, but there's 2 years of stress in those
eyes since last time.
Maybe not. LOL.
will absolutely steal the
I look pasty in CLOUD-light.
is for the DVD "Spencer's Highlights". Nice shot of
the house though.
as you can probably tell - the shoot went
Funny, funny, funny. I kept fucking up I
was laughing so much. I solved the
"timing" problem from the last entry by
loading Cameron's AUDIO from the
DAT player which isn't firewire.
Word. The camera still won't work however.
I'll deal with all that tomorrow. But more
from the shoot.
one takers throughout the shoot which is a good sign.
His song however took forever. My cheeks are actually
still sore from smiling so damn much. The lines in
Spencer's song come fast as shit, and it was all
I could do to get them out in time. As well, I
kept adding all the movements and then re-doing them.
As I mention before, I completely believe it steals
the show, and there's just no big laughs in the last
segment. But isn't that alright? Grrrr. Really hard to
judge this. It's becoming part theater piece, part
stand up act and there's no real precedent for the
flow. In a stand-up act the audience may peak at one
line, but as long as the rest of the act is still
funny - it doesn't matter. But how many times have you
seen a comic go 2 jokes too far? Then end and we all
go: "DUUUUDE, you so should've ended it on the big
joke". But admittedly this is a different beast.
I have to treat it like a movie. Take any comedic
movie for example, the funniest part is almost always
somewhere in the middle. But just as was the case in
the first Trinitrons - there's SOOOOO much laughter
leading up to and through Spence's song - that it
seems like something is missing if people aren't
laughing all the way through.
yes I'm over-analyzing, but that's what you read this
shit for right? LOL. Deal with it. These aren't the
DVD liner notes damnit. Heh. You're hearing my
thoughts - which can be annoying at times.
it, what am I saying. The end is cool as shit - and
the whole story is just funny as hell - big and
inventive. If you wanna watch Spencer's song over and
over, buy the goddamn DVD.
I'm insanely happy at this point. I love that my worry
now is that Spencer's last laugh is so LOUD it may
outweigh the rest of the show. That's awesome.
Seriously when I had the meltdown after Dewey's
footage - I actually considered packing it in.
I was devestated at the thought of having to
start from scratch and DRAW on G's eyebrows.
Luckily - that didn't have to happen, and I'm sitting
here now overjoyed with how it turned out.
is going to rip me a new one though. This is by far
the most technically demanding posts I've ever done.
So much to put together. So much to edit - so much to
create. There's no way in hell I'll be done by the 4th
of July. Not a chance. I actually need to shoot a
few things on the mountain as Live Adam to finish the
beginning. So, so, so much work.
wait to start on it. Now wish me luck in fixing the
computer problem. I'm gonna take Jess's computer apart
and try and salvage one that works so I can
finish this up. What a friggin' pain.
hoping it's all worth it in the end. 4 down, post to
and I actually got laughed at by every member of
the McDonalds crew today Granted, I still had my
make-up on and was completely "Spencer'd Out" - but
jesus this is LA. The guy who took my money started to
snicker - then actually gets UP (full line of cars)
and comes back to watch them give me the food while
every crew member comes to look and laugh. ?!?!?! I
had to laugh too though. Made me think about how much
it must suck to be a bad drag queen that
REALLY wants to look like a girl. You need thick
skin for sure. Fries were good though.
