IGHT FAM BUCKLE UP ITS STORY TIME I KNOW THIS MIGHT LOOK A LIL LONG BUT U GUYS SHOULD READ ABOUT MY ADVENTURES
Okay so, this week the traveling Missoula Children’s Theatre group decided to present Pinocchio @ my local theatre. The theatre they did it at was like newly renovated, and it’s got like mezzanine seating, even concessions and all that jazz. This place was frickin bumpin’ yo.
So on Monday we had auditions, and they cat you like right after they end, and they start the first reh like immediately after. So I was aimin for Pinocchio or Jiminy Cricket, but I got cast as J. Worthington Foulfellow, aka the Fox. Which was actually super good, because I’m currently in another production, and I didn’t really need a huge role to stress myself about.
SO YES AS SOON AS THEY GAVE ME THE SCRIPT I WAS HYPED YO LIKE they gave me this SUPER RAD CANE RIGHT AND I GOT TO LIKE USE IT FOR LIKE DRAGGING PEOPLE AND STEPPING ON JIMINY CRICKETS TOES BOI IT WAS LIT AF it was rlly loud though and all of the smol children wanted to touch it all the time tho
Also, during this show I have to chase Pinocchio and run around the theatre, like up and down the alleyways in the audience. My costume was like 3 frickin layers right, I had like a tank top, a button up dress shirt, and this big ol overcoat, along with this ascot that b a r e l y fit around my neck. (I also had this HELLA RAD FEDORA WITH EARS AND THIS BIG OL TAIL IT WAS FOXY ASF) So like after I’d run around the theatre, I’d get super hot and out of breath. So I like finish SPRINTIN and I gotta say like 3 lines afterwards and I everytime I was like straight up w h e e z i n and then I’d go backstage and sweat for like 20 mins afterwards riperoni
Also, my makeup in this was super cool, but it smudged a lot and was messy af, I was tryna dab but the white part of my muzzle kept smudgin on my black overcoat and it showed up like really obviously
But overall, it was a 10/10 experience, now I gotta get my butt in gear for Charlotte’s web bc we go on in two weeks and we are n o t r e a d y rip
ALSO THIS IS ANOTHER GREAT PART OK LETS GO OK SO The directors told us to bring in brown paper grocery bags to put our costumes and belongings in, and they told us we could decorate it and stuff however we wanted it, and we’d have a contest at the end of the week and whoever had the best decorated bag won. SO MY MEME LORD ASS DECIDED TO PRINT OUT A BUNCH OF MEMES LAST MINUTE AND PHOTOSHOP MY HEAD ONTO AN ACTUAL REAL LIFE PHOTO OF A FOX AND JUST GLUE THEM ALL OVER THIS BROWN PAPER BAG AND IT FUCKIN WON THE BAG DECORATING CONTEST
jim kirk not being an annoying dudebro, no weird/sexist interpersonal relationships with “foxy” alien ladies
the horrified look on bones’ face when spock starts laughing out of delirium
the sequence where the enterprise is basically decapitated and dismembered and then set on fire is pretty spectacular (also when kirk and chekov are running around being badasses in the wreckage)
chekov being a motherfucking pimp, literally flirting with anyone and telling outrageous lies about russia
also chekov being an absolute sweetheart and getting everyone else into their escape pods before getting in himself
the sequence with the beastie boys playing in the background was actually super-cool and not cringe like guardians of the galaxy
sulu is a bad bitch. this is just a fact. super cool. super gay. very pilot.
uhura kicking ass, sacrificing her own safety, saving spock lmaooo
jaylah being super rad, unsexualised, intelligent af
thank the lord for simon pegg he did a great job integrating women without making it sexualised and unnecessary, integrating sulu’s homosexuality without making it this huge deal, making the film funny without making it cringe niiceeee
the photo of the old cast was a lovely touch. very well done.
chekov and sulu lowkey dancing to the beastie boys while flying a motherfucking starship
i’m just really happy that chekov got so much more airtime, he was a central character with a lot to do and anton did a marvellous job
the dedications to leonard nimoy and anton at the end
“to absent friends” — did the camera linger on anton? idk?
it was just a really well balanced film with good action, lovely set design, comedy, tragedy etc and i think it was the best of all the three films so far
i miss you a lot anton, thank you for a lovely performance.

Voltron fandom, it would be super rad if some of you folks would stop bullying people about their ships and acting like you’ve got some kind of moral superiority in this situation when you’re literally harassing others about fictional character. It ain’t cute.
