THERE we go. Much cuter.
So let's start at the very beginning because after all, it's a very nice place to start.
Our Town!!!! My very first show at Utah State, directed by Writer Professor Director Dr. Anne Berekley, who ended up being one of my favorite professors and was one of the biggest supporters of my writing. This play was so much fun because I played about fifty different characters, was able to do the play with my next door neighbor/best friend Shannon, and really got to know Cassandra and TJ well, which was so great. Cassandra played my mom, which makes the picture above quite disturbing....
Then there was that one time.....
...that my dorm mates and I dressed up like X-Men and walked around town. That's really all we did, we walked around town pretending to be X-Men. Above you see me as Cyclops, Jubilee, Psylocke, White Queen, Bishop, and....Spiderman.
The coolest picture ever, though, was my friend Angie as Storm.
Just look at her. She IS Storm.
Troy as Wolverine.
Not quite as convincing as Hugh Jackman...
The whole day was really cool until it came time to eat at Wendy's. For some reason things just went downhill after that. And yes, that is Nightcrawler you see.
A few years later (read: four) Quentin, Jon McBride and I went to go see X-Men 2 at Midnight. Keep in mind I was sick out of my mind with mono, hence why I look the way I look. We were ril excited to see the movie.
My first big role at Utah State: Freddy in Grasshopper and the Ant.
Listening to the soundtrack now gives me chills. Bad chills. I sound like Anthony Rapp on helium.
The following year was another rewarding experience, in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." EVT and I had played a lot of brother/friend teams over our four years but this one was definitely the most fun to play with him just because by this point in our relationship we really were like brothers. The picture above is a funny story. During "Grasshopper" two years prior, Amanda had received this Howie Dourough (Backstreet Boys) action figure from Burger King. I hate Howie. I think he blows. Every day I would come in and make fun of him and Amanda would get mad, say "Respect the Howie!" and kick me out of her dressing room. For my last show at USU, Amanda gave me Howie as a closing night gift. I still have Howie on my desk and WILL always have Howie on my desk because it reminds me of Amanda and the fun times we had.
Speaking of fun times....
The Improv-uh-bles!!!!! Loves it. We were so good. So funny. And I'm not just saying that. We really were funny.
Quentin and I during Stage Combat class. We were HORRIBLE. Two queens should not play with swords, that's for sure!
My wife and I at Eric's wedding. So in love.
Lastly, did anyone see "The Office" after the superbowl on Sunday? I thought it was a lackluster episode, but this part
Had me ROLLING on the floor. And yes, that is Angela throwing a cat through a ceiling and then the cat falling through on the other side. Hilarious.
I've got about 525,600 things to do at work today, including a Gay Truth Booth and a Tyra article, so I'm going to be a busy bee! Have a fantastic day!
