Live Show

EDIT: Missing Link Goes Here

And of course by Live Show we mean Caitlin staring at the screen trying to figure out how to talk about something interesting in her life.

Bad idea, man.

Dr. Horrible Is Amazing


It has Felicia Day from http://www.youtube.com/user/watchtheguild and Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother and the awesome Nathan Fillion, who was in Firefly, Serenity and quite recently, Waitress.

It's fun to watch and I like the songs... mainly because Dr. Horrible sings, "I'll hand her the keys to a shiny brand new Australia!"

Kick ass.


You can buy the series on iTunes!

A Wet Hot Brooklyn Summer

I was at one the Summer Stage events that have been happening around New York and this one was in Brooklyn and it was a screening of Wet Hot American Summer.

The actors and creatives were there, including my favourite, talented actor: Paul Rudd.

I've admired his talents for a while now, always enjoying his unique choices and his skill for always ending up being the most enjoyable/quotable character in any film he is in.

I'm annoyed that I met him in person, as I've always secretly hoped that I would meet him on a creative/peer level, but unfortunately, and realistically, I am put in the "Fan" category, which sucks.

New York is awesome for making you realize how much you are truly not unique. Now don't start with me! I am just being realistic. Unfortunately, I have too many lovely optimistic readers!

Emily and I approached him, with many of the other girls, and I said,

"I'm sorry to be an annoying fan, but I'm from Australia so I thought I'd say hey..."

"Oh, no problem..."

"So, hey man, nice to meet you"

*shakes hand*

"Thank you.." or something like that, my mind stop working.

We posed for a picture...

Memory Full.

"Don't worry about it, mate."

And we just sat around and watched the guy for a moment. I always enjoy watching guys hands on girls backs. You always know when they are uncomfortable, unsure or just don't like the girl, because their hands form a fist on their back. When a guy is more comfortable with a girl, the palm is flat and often lower. I just love watching that sort of thing, it's like reading a book.

Afterward, we (being Emily and I, who is staying with me for a few weeks) went with Ryan and Tyler from Poykpac, who invited us to see the screening, to go to a couple of bars around Brooklyn.

We had a good time, walking for many blocks, visiting a Bowling alley and playing Foosball (and winning many times - yes!). We also snuck (this is apparently not a word!) in drinks while chatting about URL Life and dancing like jazz fiends.

I wish nights like that would happen more often. I enjoy the spontaneity of it all, the interaction and being social... For too long, I have embraced a lens and germ-ridden keys.

I'm off to a Yankees Vs. Tampa baseball game at the Yankee Stadium with Phil, Lindsay and Emily!
