Well what can I say that my fellow Gotham's Finest members have already said? I'll try my best.
Well, simply put we had our first official meeting today and much fun was had by all. But don't get me wrong, it was an absoloutely grueling process. The hardest thing I had to do was apply black eye make up, and slap on my suit as the Riddler. Everyone else... crikey.
Paul had to put his suit on ONE BY ONE PIECE. IN ORDER.
That takes courage and dedication right there. And Cody used his prosthetic scars once again and found they... sucked.
And to be blunt with him on the day I and Ellie basically urged him to ditch the whole idea, the prosthetic's look nice but when they detract from the performance he could pull off that's a definite HUGE negative that I'm sure no-one, let alone him wanted. Ellie applied white face make up and had to be very careful with her suit (curse you balance between sewing too loose and too tight, and non double stitching!
Monologues were thrown around like pies at a clown convention and I really got a good idea of what kind of character I wanted to play... Riddler's a very interesting character to play because there's no real SOLID reason for why he's so obsessive besides a few tame backstories... giving me the oppurtunity to work it how I want.
Performance props definitely go to Paul and Ellie and Cody, my goodness you do your characters fantastically. And Ari, you did a brilliant Cat Woman monologue too, you're gonna that smack that bitch up for sure.
Paul's family are lovely and wonderful too. Love for the snags and chicken schnitzel's and soda at the ready (people must have been ready for me ne?
Heading off to McDonalds and other social local hangouts to surprise the normies provided much entertainment for all. It's really awesome to see people appreciating what we do, forget what the moron's say, the majority love it and smile at it, which is all I ever needed.
Heading home... well.... the less said about the better but I don't think a more subtle combination of laughing your guts out and extreme anger can ever be achieved. Curse you Brisbane city council blocking every single bloody entrance to the motorway in the Mater Hill/Southbank area. >_> Thank you so much Ellie for driving me home after all that, love for you.
All in all a brilliant day. Fantastic day, fantastic people. I got to know everyone and especially Cody, Ellie and Paul, you guys are brilliant people.
And I have a slight confession to make, you guys are the reason I'm so happy at the moment, I won't go into details (seriously, I think I've bitched enough on DA) but family problems are always rampid and ready to suffocate me, and I've been stagnating at home with nothing to do for a long time.
With this project I have an oppurtunity to meet fantastic people, and work towards a higher goal with them... even if it's all a falcity... I truly am a little closer to believing I'm worth something in this world.
You guys are the reason for that Paul, Ellie, Cody, Ari, Paul's family... you have no idea how much it means to me.
Sappiness over plz.
We are Gotham's Finest. And we will smack you down. If we could see tomorrow, What of your plans? No one can live in sorrow, Ask all your friends.-Don't Cry- Guns N' Roses
