Hatred #2,343:

Aircraft cable slivers and/or rashes.


Hatred #462:

That nasty cloud of flameproofing shit that fogs up your face and gags you when you touch the soft goods.


Soft Goods

Is it only in New York, or is nobody using legs/grand rags/cycs/scrim anymore? Are they no longer en vogue?

Almost everyone who enters the theatre that I work at falls in love with the black brick walls. So industrial, they say. So minimalist. Why would anyone want to cover them with drapery?

It makes my job easier, so I can't complain. But I do wonder if it's just another trend, like experimental video in dance.

Production Internship, NYC!

Click here for an opportunity to work with yours truly! That's right, it's a technical theatre internship (catch that, Google?) Also known as a "production internship", or "serfdom".

Benefits include:

-Lessons in mopping, tying knots, and eating on the fly

-Your own personal headset for shows(!)

-A sense of deep shame at the end of a day (depending on amount of bodily fluids on stage)

-Knowledge of all types of oldschool equipment, including but not limited to: Altmans, Selecon zooms, overhead projectors (remember those?), 40mm projectors (and those?), "CD players", and UpRight lift (circa 1988).

But seriously, it'll be cool and whatnot. You'll work with a great variety of people, make a lot of new friends, and gain valuable contacts to start your career.

There. So if you're a theatre grad with a bit of tech experience, apply.

Hatred # 221:

Gaff tape that's so hard to rip that your thumb hurts at the end of the day.

About Me

My photo
New York, New York, United States
Tired. Caffeinated. Quietly evil.

I'm a theatre technician, living and working in NYC. Also an aspiring costumer, makeup artist, playwright and dilettante.
I like to rant about things, I swear like a person who swears a lot, and I work too much. Other than that, my time is spent at home with the puppy or in Chelsea bars with friends and co-workers.
