Ah.. I'm so tired. Part of me just wants to sink into my bed and sleep for several millenia. But alas, way too many things to do.
12 Angry men was... hm. Everyone looked sexy in their business attire though. Except for me. Because my shirt was too large. Haha, XL from Limited Too. Mr. Gutmann let us do it again since we sucked total balls the first time. See what happens when no one memorizes their lines?
Last night was the Chorus Concert. Honestly, I think I have way too much fun while I sing. Oh my, I just LOVE that genre of music. American Standards, you know. Cole Porter, Gershwin, Irving Berlin.. etc. (It's raining now? What?) Just kept tapping and snapping. And oh that trumpet and saxophone just makes everything so sexy. Loved the tomcat drums too. Everyone was just simply amazing. And I do mean everyone. It's great seeing some people just let go and give it their all. Ms. Brancato came up to me and said I looked like I had fun...maybe too much? LOL. And this couple said that the song I sang was the song they danced to at their wedding. That was really sweet.
This morning I went to the Filipino Idol audition. Jeez, can you say "filipino time" to the max? They said to come before 10 AM. Ok. We waited there for 2 hours. What the hell. Anyway, my mom and I met up with this guy who was also auditioning. MIchael, I think. Born in the States, yet still a seasoned speaker of Tagalog. He'd definitely be one of the people High Tech would hate on for "only sticking with the Filipinos." It's good he knows his culture and all, but it seems to me like that's all he knows. Nursing school, tagalog interjections, sings an old-as-hell operatic filipino song, looking for Red Ribbon... Don't get me wrong, he's a really cool guy. Really fun to talk to too.
The other contestants didn't come until 12 or 12:30. Some were really great, experienced singers. This one guy just graduated with a degree in music industry. He sang great. And some, weren't so great. Chelsea was there too. That girl can belt, but she seemed really nervous. Poor girl. All in all, 16 supposedly registered but only 9 actually auditioned. They were going to accept only 8, but in the end they just let us all compete.
Oh, and I should say that annoying emcee at the Philippine Expo was there. He remembered me from when I last sang. Only this time, he wasn't so annoying. Just really cool beans. I didn't know he was a composer and such a good on-the-spot pianist. This one guy got bongo drums out of his car, the emcee took on the piano, and we just jammed a jazz version of "I Will Survive" right there on the stage in front of everyone. I made up lyrics haha. It was just so spontaneous and fun. ;] And plain old silly. I live my life for moments like these.
So yea, I'm in FIlipino Idol. It's on June 29. Eh.. gotta pick a good song. I got mad competition. And ARGH. Tomorrow is the Philippine Independence Day Parade! Gotta sing for that too... Also gotta study for finals. Damn.
LOL. Why the hell am I just singing for these Filipino things? Not that I'm complaining. Whatever gets thrown at me I guess. Taking my chances. Hm.. it's raining outside, in the broad daylight. Another thunderstorm. Shit. It's big.
Wah, I love summer rain.
