こんばんは☆
Good evening ☆

最終ベルが鳴る公演終わりました^_^
ありがとうございました(●・v・○)ノ
The Saishuu bell ga naru stage is over ^_^
Thank you very much (●・v・○)ノ

なんと、初!!
おしべとめしべと夜の蝶々をしました♡
For the first time!!
I performed Oshibe to meshibe to yoru no chouchou ♡

初恋泥棒と正反対ですね笑
レッスン場で練習出来なかったので、
いろんな先輩方の動画を沢山見て、
イメージして。。。
ぴーちゃんにもこんな感じのおしめしを作り上げたいって伝えて。。
It’s the exact opposite of Hatsukoi dorobou, isn’t it? lol
I couldn’t practice it during the lessons
so I watched a lot the videos of various senpai
and I imagined it…
I also said to Pii-chan I wanted to perform this kind of OshiMeshi…

控えめさやうけの表現を自分の中で仕上げるのに苦労しました。
今日の反省点もあるけど、悔いはありません。
Even if I prepared low-key and uke expressions inside me, I struggled.
Today there were some points to review but I have no regrets.

今日のリハで初めて二人で合わせて、
セリフも自分たちで考えましたの。
In today rehearsal we faced for the first time
and we thought about the talk part by ourselves.

最後の「ぴーちゃまっ」って言って駆け寄ったのはアドリブです。
The last “Pii-chama” while I rushed over her was an ad-lib of mine.

リハではぴーちゃんって言ってたけど
本番ふと思いついて言ったから、
楽屋でメンバーがめっちゃ笑っていたらしいです(^^)
In the rehearsal I said “Pii-chan”
but during the performance it came into my mind and I said it,
it seems the members laughed a lot in the locker room (^^)

またおしめしできたらいいなぁ。。。
ぜひDMMで観てくださいね〜♡
I’d like to perform OshiMeshi again…
Absolutely, watch it on DMM〜♡

"One of the ad libs that happened was when I came on set for the dinner party scene, and they had the sort of chicken claw thing sticking up out of an appetiser.
And I said “we gotta use this man, this is ridiculous! It’s this dead claw thing.” And they kept it.  And I started to ask “what is this?” and then I went “forget it, I don’t want to know what it is.”“

Big Leaps.

The days come and go so fast anymore. I remember when the weekend felt like it lasted forever, now it goes by in a single moment. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. The direction my lifes going in is exactly what I have wanted for as long as I can remember.

Today my mom came over to the flat and helped me with Genderflux for a few hours. She knew that I had been working on some music and asked if I had anything she could listen to yet. So I pulled up a rough recording of a song that I have been working on with @BarryBrandon and his team.

As the song played I sang along, dropping in ad libs and alternative melodies. Then my mom started laughing and giggling so I asked what she was laughing at! She said,

"What do you mean? I am laughing because I am sitting in the dinning room of your flat, helping you manage the stress of your new company that is growing leaps and bounds while your over there putting outfits together for another week of photo shoots, meetings and networking events while your soon to be hit single plays in the background!!! That’s why I am laughing!!! Because I am so proud of you!"

It was nice hearing that from my mom. Like mothers tend to do, she had a very valid point because these are all things that though they are new, stressful and time consuming, its what I have ALWAYS wanted for myself, what I have dreamed of for a very long time.

This realization was so clarifying to me because lately I have been extremely overwhelmed. Worried sick about so many different things. When you’re passionate about what you do, its easy to stress about every little detail. At the end of the day though, I love my crazy life and I will get better at handling the challenges I face with each and every hour invested into my dreams!

Dreams are such an important part of life. Despite tough times, I am very lucky to have a mother that not only accepts me for who I am but also believes in my dreams as much as I do.

As many of you know, we are gradually going through all of the submissions that have been sent in from people interested in becoming a contributor to House of Alexzander. Through this process I have read and seen so much art and creativity and I love that! However, one perspective I also had a specific interest in finding was that of a parent to a gender variant, trans, or non-binary child. So today I thought I would share this story of my mother and I, in hopes that perhaps it might reach someone with this unique parenting perspective, that would be willing to contribute as a writer/photographer to the House. The submissions page is still open to all submissions.

Towards the beginning of the film, Cary Grant tells Ginger Rogers that he will always remember her character “just the way you look tonight;” evoking a look of confusion and a smirk from Rogers. The line is a reference to the song of the same title Fred Astaire sung to Rogers in Swing Time, the film in which the famous song was first heard.

Smith and Jones - Behind the Scenes (Part One)

Excerpts from Jason Arnopp’s article in DWM #381:

      The best way to bond with your new leading lady?  Carry her around for a bit.  Everyone knows that.  So then, here’s the Doctor, deathly pale, ferrying an unconscious Martha Jones across Royal Hope’s MRI Room like some kind of be-suited Frankenstein’s Monster.  David and Freema are already having a laugh in between takes.
      “This is the Paisley pallor,” notes David, pointing at his face.  “The irony is, I look like this before make-up every morning.”
      “Do we want to carry Freema into the room for this next take?” wonders first assistant director Gareth Williams.
      “No, I’ll walk and save David’s arms,” she laughs, then winks at Gareth.  “It’s okay, love, no need to be polite.  David’s not acting now - this is real pain!”
      “I had to have my hand in a very particular place,” he tell us, out along the corridor once the scene is safely in the bag. “She’s light as a feather, but the grip was proving problematic.  I don’t think any damage was done, but it could have been a tragic start to our working relationship!”
      He’s offered coffee.  “I won’t, thanks,” he grins, “because I’m already talking far too much.  I’ll turn into a gameshow host.”
——-
      David is back in the MRI room, still sporting the Paisley pallor and doing what he calls “I-can’t-stand-up acting.  You end up hyperventilating a bit.”
      He has to stagger across the room and deliberate between the red and blue wires, ultimately removing the red.  He cuts one take short. “Oh dear, the blue one’s come out,” he hoots.  “That’s the universe destroyed, then!”
