I'm Sorry, Mom!

The other day, I had a hilarious conversation with my mom (Hi, Momsie!) where I was telling her all about the theatre stuff going on right now, specifically, about the little video clips I've been sharing here.  And she said, "I went on your blog and watched the first one, but I don't understand what's going on!  Why does that girl shove that bag at you?"

I tried to explain (and I imagine you other non-French speakers are equally at a loss, and for that, I apologize) but explaining these sorts of things never means actually being able to impart why the thing is funny.  Or not.

So, preemptively:

Mom, I'm sorry.  You are so not going to get this one. 

The whole premise is making fun of horribly dubbed American soaps on French TV.  The whole joke is how the actors who do the ridiculously bad dubbing get distracted.  Believe me, it's funny in French, but almost because it is so bad.  It's the kind of humor that makes you groan.  The kind where you are almost mad at yourself for laughing.

Okay, I'm totally laughing over here just remembering it. 

God, it's dumb.  But it's so funny.

One Thing

I came across this today, and had to share.

“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as our culture has defined it.” – David Orr

I don't know who David Orr is (will Google that later) but Amen, brother.  Amen.

Save Acting International

As most of you know, I enrolled in a professional acting school here in Paris, and spent two years learning the tricks of the trade from a diverse group of passionate, dedicated and amazing teachers.

Today, that school, Acting International, is in grave danger.  This summer the founder, Mr. Robert Cordier, was summarily dismissed from his own school by the current director, on trumped up charges of professional misconduct.  This was merely a ruse to take total control of the school, and most importantly, the enormous profits it generates.

The vast majority of the professors signed an open letter of protest and were immediately fired and replaced within days by an unsuspecting corps of new staff, only too happy to be a part of what was once considered a prestigious institution. 

A petition to oust the current director is currently circulating, and if you should feel so inclined, your signature and support to reinstate Mr. Cordier would be much appreciated.

You can also keep abreast of the developments in this fight by clicking on :

If you believe in justice, in the generous and selfless transmission of art and knowledge, please help us save our school.

Thank you.
