A little bit about Maizono's bit in Drama CD

I finally managed to find the review

1. It was mostly Kizakura who asked her questions like, “Who’s your favorite detective?”, unlike other characters.
2. There are some ingenious esper ad-libs.
3. Maizono generally answers most questions pretty impressively as a pro idol.
4. It’s hard to recognize which of her answers are true and which are just jokes, which is a lot like Maizono.
5. When she hears a statement that might sound like sexual harrassment, she replies pretty smartly.
6. Although she had answered the most of the questions pretty neatly, at the question “If you had to choose between the idol career and person you endear, which would you choose?” she replied that she wouldn’t know unless the actual moment comes. (The guy who wrote the review said this might be hinting about the events in DR1)

It sounds like most of HR's lines are improvised. I can't imagine some of those being in the script. The "Helbing" joke in 3x06 has got to be all TC.

Like, I feel like they are literally all ad libbed, except for that convo in the car with Joe from 3x07, LOL, but a good bit of it must be scripted, right?

The definition of a show-stopping performance!  

The audience’s energy was incredible!


“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.”“

The guy who did the ad-libs on “Panda” must’ve been out his mind

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.

One of the funniest and blackest moments in episode 8 is when Misty calls out her boss, Priscilla Ridley, for being chummy with Mariah because they’re both sorority sisters. We rarely see shows that mention black sororities. How did that scene come about?

Simone Missick, who plays Misty, actually ad-libbed the “skee-wee outta here” line. I didn’t do that to denigrate Deltas—my wife is a Delta. I have women in my family who are AKA’s (Alpha Kappa Alpha). Our production designer, Toni Barton, whose mother is a Delta, decided to add elephants to the décor of Mariah’s home, which is one of the symbols of the sorority. I wanted to show sophisticated black women and the kind of nuanced complexities of powerful black women like Mariah and Priscilla being sorors. [x]

Something I noticed was when Rick first starts his speech Bird Person just kinda has the same expression he always does

But when Rick starts ad-libbing and being his usual asshole self saying “I’m not the nicest guy because I’m the smartest”  Bird Person just fuckin

He fuckin smiles.  We’ve never seen him smile.  But he’s so happy his best friend is there and being himself god fucking damn it.  

If you try to tell me Bird Person wasn’t proud of Rick I will fight you

"Felicity" was a freaking ad-lib. How dead are you Matty?

Combined with the fact that the 1x03 script was basically flipped on its head by Stephen and Emily, improvised to give us that perfect first meeting we adore so much… and then this

Suffice it to say I’m very, very dead. (So dead that I’m urging you to join me in my graveyard.)

Because it just reinforces what we’ve always known :

No one ships Olicity like Amell ships Olicity 

And the two of them have improvised on the script to give us some of our most squeal-worthy Olicity moments.

when someone comes for Liam’s vocals i just remember that he’s not only a singer but a vocalist who can go back and forth into falsetto without his voice cracking and whilst staying on pitch and who can ad lib his ass off, like ad libbing is literally creating new sounds in your head whilst singing like he’s ridiculously talented. he’s a performer.
