Show Business

The world of acting is dangerous, bloodthirsty, and cruel. To be an actor, you need to have a tough skin. If you don't have one, be prepared to hurt.

I auditioned for The Best Christmas Pagenant Ever a few weeks ago. I have now auditioned for more roles than I've been cast. I'm probably not going to be cast for a while now because of all the work that's being done to my mouth because of orthodontics. But I'm going to keep auditioning anyways for the experience.
I've had issues with this one girl, Ratty, for years. Her mom is one of the most pushy, manipulative people I've ever met. I don't think my problems are directly with Ratty, but it stems from what happens to her because of her mom's actions. She went and auditioned on the first of the original two audition dates. She got her callback and she ultimately didn't go. In between her first audition and the callback, I auditioned and was told they didn't need me. Ratty and her parents had a two hour family meeting discussing the callbacks and the huge schedule adjustments needed if they put her in the play. After tears and such from Ratty, they all decided she was not going to go to the callbacks.
Long story short, her mom found out from our acting teacher that the director of the children's play was really considering Ratty for one of the roles. So, Ratty's mom pulled strings and got Ratty to go to a special audition, where she was cast.

I don't know why God chose to have everyone else I know get cast and me not, but He has a plan. I strongly suspect one of the reasons is to teach me to have a joyful heart in all circumstances and to be sweet and nice to everyone, regardless of what they get, even if it's "not fair".

All that being said, if you're considering a career in theatre, be strong. Don't let anything beat you down. Stand firm and keep working.

On a happier note, we got scripts in drama. Ratty and I are performing together and if you read our script, you'll realize we've been cast in the parts PERFECT for us. As in, it seems the play was written with our personalities in mind. :)

Doctor Who: Closing Time

If you have not watched this episode, do not read any further. There are spoilers galore.

First Thoughts:
I loved this episode!! It went back to the old way that DW episodes were without losing the whole overlying plot of the season. Also I was happy to see Craig again! :D

-The Doctor talking to Alphie was the CUTEST thing I've ever seen. I mean, everything Matt Smith does is cute, but this was ultra-cute.
-"Look, I get a name tag incase I forget who I am- which I do often." xD
-Has anyone else noticed that a theme that keeps showing up this season is father-son relationships? I like that...I think it always makes for a good story line.
-How the lady thought that Craig and the Doctor were together and the Doctor was totally oblivious to it was HILARIOUS!
-The little bit with Amy and Rory in the mall almost made me cry. *sniff*
-When Craig gave him the cowboy had I was like, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
-As you know, I don't like River. However I did like the end. Obviously we already knew that she is the impossible astronaut. But just seeing her put into the suit was just like conformation. Her floating in the water with the creepy song from Night Terrors in the background was like a perfect cliff hanger.

I only have like...two dislikes. The cybermen for one. I HATE the cybermen. Always have always will. Although I'd rather see cybermen than dalekks.
The other dislike was the fact that the Silence are back. Actually that was more of a...I like it but I don't like it. They're freaky.

This episode gets an 8/10~

And she says hello

Welcome to our blog...this wonderful place on the internet where you may read all about our obsessions. Shall we begin?


Endor is back! She's not quite sure why she's writing in third person, but she will stop that now.
I'm looking forward to sharing all about my obessions with everyone! Knowing me, my posts will probably be all over the place. But, like Qui said, most of it will center around Star Wars. I'm thinking of doing reviews for each Clone Wars episode and reviewing the Star Wars books I read.
I'll talk about my other obessions, too, don't worry! I promise not to give you just Star Wars. ;)

May the Father be with You!!!

Doctor Who: The God Complex

This is my first review for this blog! I will be posting a review of each Doctor Who episode as they come out.

If you have not seen this episode, don't read any further! It contains lots of spoilers!!!!

First Thoughts:
In all honesty, I disliked this episode almost as much as Let's Kill Hitler. The only thing that saved it for me was the little twist at the end and the Doctor's humor.

-Of course I always like the Doctor and his funny little lines, but I absolutely loved that he has a doctorate in cheese making.
-At first, for me, the whole nightmares thing was kind of stupid, but the way that they twisted it around in the end was cool and a bit unexpected.What with it being "They're not trying to make you scared, they're trying to make you have faith."
-I loved Howard! I almost cried when he died. Ugh, stupid Steve Moffat.

-The entire episode was extremely anti-climactic. I think that it didn't end with as much of a bang as it should have.
-That chick, the doctor girl (I've already forgotten her name, that's how dull she was) was so....well she was dull. She was just a typical character that the Doctor meets on his various shennangins. You know, the ones who he thinks would make brilliant companions, but they always end up dying. She was extremely predictable.
-THIS EPISODE WAS SUPPOSED TO SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF ME. If you're going to make the preivew seem scary, make the episode scary. Also, if you're going to put the Weeping Angles in the preview, put them in the episode for more than 2 minutes.
-Once again: What is it with Steve Moffat and dying? In a television series, you can't use that too often or else it loses it's meaning. I could have predicted that that doctor girl and Howard were going to die. I did predict that! The reason why the Weeping Angles were my favorite aliens were because originally they didn't kill you.
-WHEN DID THEY DISCUSS LEAVING THE TARDIS???? WHEN??? There has got to be something fishy going on, because Doctor just like...dropped them off and left. That's ridiculous. Normally, something terribly awful happens before they leave. Like Martha and the whole Master incident. Or Donna's sad situation. And obviously what happened to Rose at Canary Warf. I'm very angry. I want more Rory! Come onnnnn.

-I'm pretty sure that the Doctor's nightmare was either the Dalekks, River Song, or Rose. I think it would be just like the Doctor to have River Song or Rose as his nightmare. And I heard that they were having Rose somewhere in series 6, so maybe we'll get to see her again! :D

I'm giving this episode a 4/10.
Blaah. :/ I just wasn't impressed. Oh well. Tomorrow's episode should be better!



Yes, it's Qui and I'm posting on Lightsaber and a Script.
You know why? Because Lightsaber and a Script is OFFICIALLY OPEN AGAIN!

It'll be just like before except we don't have scheduled posts because those never go well and we are just going to post about everything we're obsessed with. Knowing Endor, most of her stuff will be about Star Wars, but still.

So, feel free to explore and leave anything you would like to see soon (posts, stuff like that) in the comments! :)
