‘I’m on a Boat’

October 26th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter

Last night, I patroned a (FUN!)fundraiser for my friends’ theater co, Aztec economy, featuring banjo music, burlesque and plays. And yuengling!  Also it took place on steamship Lilac, a historic boat docked a Pier 40 which youngins can use for art things.  This compelled me, and other patrons,  to say ‘I am on a boat!’ about 700 times. It’s pretty amazing and exciting, how easy it is to raise funds for your endeavors with a party – especially if said party is on a boat, so that patrons can text all of their friends, ‘ I am on a boat!’ And thus have a story to tell for the next week, at least. (‘I was on a boat.’)

mine

I’m in rehearsal now for Mine with Slant Theater Project. It’s mayhaps the smallest play I’ve ever written, character-wise. A love triangle of sorts, with music by Joe Pug (In the way that I stole his amazing music and inserted it into my play – then politely asked him if I could, you know, have it. Thankfully, he said yes.) I had an epiphany last night while watching rehearsal – I think it’s gonna be good! I wrote the play so fast and furiously as its story consumed me pretty quickly – and now I’m sifting back through what exactly it is that I wrote. And I think I like it. I think I like it alot. You should come see! Nov 12-22 at the Lee Strasberg theater, starring some phenomenal actors, some lonesome music, and me, huddled in the back, chewing on my hair.

from my kitchen, to yours

Amy and Colin got married a few weeks ago in TX. I couldn’t be there cause of Oohrah! which I really really hated and I still can’t believe I wasn’t there to witness this. I mean, their very love blossomed on my Christopher Street futon! Chaperoned, of course.

Oh, well. SOMEHOW the wedding took place without me. Amy was a stunning bride, a beautiful, perfect version of herself, as a bride should be. And how stinking cute and amazing are they? An armadillo cake? A doughnut cake????  Gray Vest thing and bow in hair?! Geez louise. Make the babies already.

Since I couldn’t make it, I’m having a post-wedding celebration thing for them tommorrow night. And they being of the skinny and attractive variety, I thought it’d be fitting for me to bless their union with some heart disease. And what better way, than with some Paula Deen recipes. I’ve been perusing them. I dare you to do it and not get simultaneously disgusted by and excited about gooey butter cake / savannah cheese cake cookies / brie wrapped in biscuit dough / fried stuffing balls (on a stick.) I. Dare. You.

afghanistan

Dan’s going to Afghanistan and I can’t say I have much peace about it.  I know he’ll be fine – he’s extremely savy and is going to be staying on a base for the most part, but I can’t help but be the scared, and the nervous. So to ease my mind, I did a bunch of internet reading and looking and wondering. And while at first, this only made me MORE freaked out – but I did gain a greater understanding of what Dan will be doing – and why he’s doing it. Sure, it seems like a nearly impossible war now, sure the Taliban seems to be stronger than ever and progress is slow – but from what I can tell, the people who live there need the protection. If Dan and his men weren’t there – they might very well be killed. Regardless of whether or not we should have gone there to begin with – they deserve to live in peace.

So, Subsequently, for me, at least  – in having this understanding –  Peace.

Los Angeles!

October 20th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter

What? Am I finally sharing thoughts on my adventure? I am! I AM! I misplaced my camera cord thing for about a week. But fortunately, things have been restored to order. And so: I guess like two weeks ago almost? I went to LA. To see my play happy birthday / I’m Dead in a Little Bird festival, and to take some very (very) preliminary TV meetings. I was companioned by my fellow new school-er, Megan Lohne, thank God. We Holiday-Inned, we renta car-ed, we zoo-ed, we survived.

Highlights include me pretending like it would be a pretty profound thing if I took pictures of myself in all the major studio bathrooms, but quickly getting bored of this.

Hugging upon actors in my play,

Being posh, generally, with Megan / offending the fancies of Hollywood blvd with my pigtails:

Seeing buddy for a minute (she is back there, I promise, just obscured by my large face)

And making nice with her friend Peter, whom I liked very much. In fact, here he is, sideways, doing something wrong to someone’s star.

And then also the LOS ANGELES ZOO! Megan and I high-tailed it there when I realized I’d been there for 2 days and hadn’t done a fun thing. So, flamingos.

And most importantly: Bear.

All in all, a very excellent trip. I learned a lot about megan, TV, TV writing, taco’s, doughnuts, bears, driving, merging, traffic, turn signals, parking, ham and cheese crossaints, hotels, and most importantly, myself.
