So, I have had a thought for a big project for 2015. I am considering a daily narcissistic singing youtube post. I sing a lot, and I know a variety of songs. I am not embarrassed by singing without accompaniment, or easily embarrassed in general. I would like to challenge myself to learn new songs or polish them at least, and maybe create an artifact of my singing efforts. During Ira's Bar Mitzvah, many relatives commented that they didn't know I could sing. That is just wrong, cause I sing a LOT.

I'm not sure how much time this would take. I am not thinking of superior recordings, or multiple takes. Chances are, I will sit down for an hour, sing a dozen songs, take another hour splicing them into a dozen videos and then chosing the best seven for the week in question. Two hours a week can't be so bad. The other option would be to do it all at once, and that might take a half hour start to finish. My hope is to start soon, and build up a back log of quick performances.

So, what do people think. Do you think something like short daily video of me singing would be achievable? Any suggestions? Is it worth it?

EDIT: Having just played with Youtube, this will be easier than I though, especially if I am not too picky about video quality (which I am not) or editing... or, if I am good with letting the youtube serve take time with each edit. I think my time scale is really much shorter, and I can work on quality of singing and recording.

Just came back from Theater@First's Shaken up Shakespeare. It was quite good and a lot of fun. Some of the raw dramatic pieces were quite strong, [livejournal.com profile] gilana's acting goes up to 11, and the comedy hit home well. I really enjoyed Godzilla versus Macbeth, but maybe it is because I sat through the Porter scene so many times.

The three William Shatner's playing Orsino bring a machismo to the character that makes a lot of sense. I almost want to see the whole play done that way... ...almost.

Not surprisingly, the 15 Minute Hamlet remains the best written. [livejournal.com profile] oakenguy does a fine job in his several servant role and clearly enjoys the goofiness involved.

Naturally, having seen some theater my urge to audition for something, anything, has skyrocketed. And oddly enough, I felt a pang of desire to direct. Where the hell did that come from?

All in all, it was a good night out. Recommended.
