The Culprit

Kouta (Kindaichi) 
The culprit
was Kaito.

Sorry.

But also…
I’m gonna pretend I didn’t read that “tee hee pero.” 

Their Line texts read

Kaito: Kouta-san, the culprit for those Yahaba cup photos was me (lol)
Kouta: It was you?
Kaito: Tee hee pero*

*pero is the sound effect used for when someone sticks their tongue out playfully.

Ryan, you’re Luke Skywalker. You’re battling Greg, who’s Darth Vader. When space adventurer Lando Calrissian, Wayne, comes in to help. Colin keeps entering as other Star Wars characters.
The trick is, every time they speak they have to use these exact number of words. Greg, you can only and always have to use 2 words, Colin you always have to use 3 words, Ryan you always have to use 4 words, Wayne you always have to use 5 words.

HOW WAS STREETCAR? Did you meet GA? Hope you had fun!

I did have fun! Felt good, felt organic. Thank you. :) (Someday I’ll be tired of that. Today is not that day.)

I don’t have a huge write-up to do. Ismat did a much better one. I loved the play. I had seen it in the movie theater, and I was moved by it, but it was WAAAAYYY more intense in person. I caught myself with my mouth hanging open several times (and not JUST because, truly, Gillian’s boobs are a wonder). And…we were in the front row, so it was fucking weird because like, I’m watching this drama play out and engrossed as fuck in it, and then like, I feel like I have to pull my feet in because I don’t want Stanley to trip over me. I did that any time any of the actors walked by, which was often. THAT SHIT WAS CLOSE. I’m still stunned by that. 

And, you know, the stage revolves, so a couple of times, there was Gillian Anderson, as Blanche (EDIT: ARGH I CALLED HER STELLA AGAIN, BRAIN TOO SMALL), doing a scene, three feet from my face. I was both inside of and outside of the moment. It was very surreal. In particular the one that a lot of played out RIGHT in front of us was when she’s talking to Mitch at the front door, with the stuffed tiger. Like, she was right there. Right there. And she was Blanche, but then she was also Gillian Anderson whaaaaaatttt. It was overwhelming. 

I thought everyone was great. Honestly I really liked the kid who played the…kid, that Blanche inappropriately kisses. He just hit the perfect note of kind of awed and wowed and also bewildered and freaked out and trying to cover all those feelings with politeness and basically the living embodiment of the “mark me down as scared and horny” gif. I was joking that that kid is Tumblr. :) How about being a teenage boy (or however old he really is) and having it be your job to have Gillian Anderson kiss you on the lips every night? Man. 

But aside from that, I really think Ben Foster is FANTASTIC in this. The way he does the role, he does it with this kind of tense, loud sarcasm, almost like he’s playing to an (imaginary) (or is it) audience, and I find it chilling. Just the way he talks to her with this fake-chipper weariness that covers barely restrained fury. I think it was Ismat who said when we were talking about it, we’ve all known someone like this. It’s so true. 

And I think Vanessa Kirby is great too. The only time I cried watching it the first time (in the movie theater) was when she’s crying at the end as Blanche is being taken away, and I got teary at it again here. Stella’s such a heartbreaking character because she just wants everything to be OK, but she’s also carrying such a burden of having to walk so many tricky lines to keep it that way. I like what she does with it. 

Um, let’s see. There were no technical mishaps that I was aware of, except maybe that pretty much no water came out of the shower at the end and I feel like normally her hair is supposed to get a lot wetter. She got a standing ovation at the end and it she was lovely and smiley and it was wonderful. It was a pleasure to clap hard for her while staring directly at her face, not that far away from me, and hope she could feel my love and everyone else’s too.

I was reading one of those interviews recently where Gillian talks about wanting to do the play with a revolving stage that’s in the middle of the audience, because of the claustrophobic nature of them all being trapped in the two rooms (and, I’m sure, the voyeuristic compulsion to watch people’s dramas be played out and be horrified but also take pleasure in it). I was thinking about that a lot while watching it. I’m glad she held out for a theater that could do it that way. 

So if anyone wants to hear about our experience meeting Gillian, Ismat did mostly cover it, but I’ll throw in my angle too. We waited for her to come out and they had us line up near the bar, and then Gillian poked her head out of the box-office window and yelled out to the crowd that she was selling hamburgers. Hee. Then the line moved VERY fast – I have many thoughts on this but I’ll save them for another time, but while I’m sorry the organizing at the theater-management level is necessary I think it’s definitely the right call – and we were near the front so I barely had time to freak out. I had her sign my program; she said “How are you?” and I said “I’m totally drained after watching that; I can’t imagine how drained YOU are” and she kind of laughed and said “oh…I’m fine” and it was very cute. She was very smiley and friendly. Then I just thanked her and told her that the show was fantastic and she thanked me and was very nice. Then I moved on and twirled for a while. She was lovely and it was lovely. :)

I’m feeling very un-eloquent (ineloquent? See, I told you) tonight, so I’m sorry if this is disappointing. I got to hang out with friends this week, some friends I’ve known for a good 15 years or so, and some I’ve known for a lot shorter. It was pretty damn great, and it’s always sad to have that real-life connection for a few short hours or days and then have it be gone again. Fandom friendships – or, friendships originating in fandom – have meant so much to me in my life, and this week was no exception. :)
