My high school had a kick-ass drama program. We did 8 (EIGHT) shows a year. Yeah, it was crazy and fun, and amazing. I directed, acted, ASM’ed, operated the sound board, and was an assistant producer on various productions.
But all that aside, we were also a family. We hung out in our office (which was in the back of our black box theatre and had a couple of couches, a fridge, a microwave, and a stereo. Yes, I never went to gym during my final semester and spent a LOT of time in there even when I didn’t have a free period), went to the various diners in our town, and even held certain friend’s hair back when they drank a bit too much Smirnoff at a cast party.
We also listened to a lot of Dave Matthews Band, and more importantly: Guster. Their current album was “Lost and Gone Forever” and after burning a copy during my senior year, it’s lived on my iPhone and iPod since then.
I’ve listened to them on and off over the years but I’ve never gotten to see them live. But all that is changing. I bought tickets to see them next Friday in Port Chester, NY. Its about a half hour outside the city and I’m totally looking forward to it.
