Review of Bards Show! (sort of!)

Since it's been nearly a week, I am sure I will be forgetting everything. I thought maybe I'd do bullets in case stream of consciousness make it easier.

* we had about 33 people there if you count little children, 35 if you count the bards. i had no idea that many people could fit in our house. freemonkeys was thrilled to have people playing in the arcade after the show was over.

* the bards show was amazing! they played for about an hour, took a short break, and played another hour. before the show started they got our input on the set list, which was really cool because we got to hear our favorite songs. we also got to hear a few new songs, too!! (or at least new to us)

* when they sang "The Legend of Jayne" (from Firefly) Marc wore my Jayne hat that sarahtoalaska knitted for me. yes, he looked cunning. he wore it for the rest of the show, which triggered a million hat jokes from Andrew.

and this picture is blurry but i still think he is so cute in it

* during A Fairy Story my husband was standing in the kitchen, in sight of everyone at the show. Andrew kept pointing to him whenever he sang about the knight and monkeys would strike a manly pose. but if you know the end of the song you know that everyone was peeking into the kitchen to see his reaction and to see if Andrew would keep up pointing to him as the knight. monkeys knows the song as well, though, so his flamboyant swishy pose at the end was FABULOUS and got a huge laugh.

* i got a copy of The Circle CD, i'd been wanting it from the podcasts, the money raised helps Hurricane Katrina relief. I also got another CD because it had some robin hood songs i'd not heard before, they overheard me mentioning that so they deviated from the playlist and performed that in the show.

* we made bard stalker t-shirts. long story about how i became Andrew's official stalker (link to other post Stalking the Bards) but the inside joke continues to grow so late Saturday night we stayed up until midnight making Official Bard Stalker t-shirts for me, toaster, redd, droid, tick, sarah, and some other friends. they turned out GREAT. monkeys did the layout and we did the ironing. when Andrew arrived i asked him if he liked our shirts and he said no. i actually got sad and nervous! i thought he didn't like them or that we had broken copyright or something using their name. but that wasn't it. he said he was mad that we did better t-shirt designs then they did!!! LOL! he had been teasing us the entire time.

* Toaster talked about Duckets - which was brilliant. She also mentioned Artemis wandering in a few times to sniff their recording device. That was a little embarrassing - i thought it was really cute but if the bards didn't then it was bad. plus, what if she tried to sit on it? she likes to sit on things...

* after the show people hung out for a little bit. one by one they left until it was just toaster, the bards, magnet, and matt. they helped us get our furniture back in order, which was really sweet!

* the next day we meet cam&steph, toaster, and the bards at a local restaurant and had lunch together. that was really great. they serve hushpuppies and strawberry butter. so good!!

golly, there is more but i'm sleepy and my memory is fuzzy. i'll have to listen to the show again because there were so many fun moments, so much great music, and such good people. feel free to add more memories!!

I’m sorry we left in such a hurry, but my parents in law wanted to see Kent/Sarah. We had agreed to have dinner with them around 7PM, but I should have known my father in law better (who was cooking). We didn’t eat until almost 10PM, which soft of pissed me off this time because we could’ve stayed at your house a little longer and helped you guys clean up. Sorry about that.

no apology necessary!! no one was required to help clean up, i just thought it was sweet the bards moved me couch around!!

sorry you couldn't hang out longer, but we understood. i was just thrilled that you guys were actually able to come up! i didn't think you'd be able to fit it into your schedule so i was crazy happy to see you.

Holy cow! Look at my devil eyes in those pictures!

madladyred! You're such a hussy! Look at you grabbing Marc's knee like that!

WHAT will the neighbors think?
Sep. 18th, 2006 12:13 am (UTC)
what you are about to see ladies and gentlemen may shock and distress you. i have photographic evidence that in fact i am not the hussy in the group. no, it is indeed a pot calling the kettle black moment that ought to, but probably will not, embarrass our dear Toaster. Shame on you women! I say Shame!!

Who's the hussy now, weeeeench!

i will swear on all that is sacred that marc threw his leg over my knee like that. my hands were only positioned in self defense.
Sep. 18th, 2006 12:24 am (UTC)
Yeah... but I've never DENIED being a hussy.
I am blatently hussy-ish.

And, I might add. Just LOOK how happy Marc is in that picture. And can you blame him? I can't! It's proof positive of how great my hussying skills truly are.

But your little 'hand-sey' picture there is so shocking because you have everyone fooled with the sweet and innocent facade. Redd and I know better! (Mrs. I'm the greatest pi-rate hunter in the world!)

But I must say, that I am pleased that you've been paying attention during my hussying lessons. Teachers are always pleased to see their students successes.
Sep. 18th, 2006 12:52 am (UTC)
and just how pleased are the teachers when they have to ask their student how to spell successes, ms smartypants?
Sep. 18th, 2006 12:57 am (UTC)
Hey, I'm not teaching SPELLING here.
Or haven't you been paying attention after all?

Sep. 18th, 2006 01:16 am (UTC)
And besides, it should be "Shame on you womAn"... not "Shame on you womEn"... Or are you casting aspersions on every girl in the pic? Cuz then obviously you would be implicating yourself...

Sep. 18th, 2006 03:04 am (UTC)
well, you caught me and I ought to fess up to it, but i'm keeping it going.
my grammatical error was most likely due to the emotional stress from being exposed to all your hussitude. i'm so innocent that i was completely overwhelmed and became incapable of typing.

apparently, according to Lori, i've learned from the best!!!
Sep. 18th, 2006 01:00 am (UTC)
Yes.. yes she has. I must admit that I am the Grand Master Hussy now... but in the beginning *I* took lessons from Reddheaded!

Yay! Thanks again for hosting us. :) That was fun.
And no worries about Artemis. That was pretty cute. :)

hi! as much as i hate insomnia, i have found some pretty interesting websites because of it :)

thanks for the comments! if you really want to make on of the shirts you may. it does say to ask about franchise options. i can email you the full size graphic or even modify this one to have a new chapter of the stalker club.

we just printed it out on transfer paper and ironed it on. the shirts we found at WalMart (the great evil) in the men's section. they were even on sale for $5. but you can put it on any shirt you want. we searched all over for a decent shirt - that style turned out to be perfect. it had the green in the sleeves for bard colors but the actual shirt part was beige so that the colors in the logo we designed showed up clearly and unadulterated. (they also has a light green shirt/dark green sleeve version that would have worked but both the nearby stores were out of those. as it was we made a midnight run to a store 30 miles away to get the ones we did use. the original shirts we got were too dark and the local store didn't carry the lighter ones in any size but small).

youre user pictures are killer! i want to make some spock/kirk ones but haven't gotten around to it yet. i got to go up on stage with Dean Hagland and Gary Jones during their improvised star trek episode at Dragoncon this year. I happened to be in my red shirt costume (every year we take pictures of things at the con killing me) so I was picked to be Ensign Dunfor in the show. it was great! (for me at least, I don't know about the audience...)
