Parodies Group Begun; Searching for Lodgings!

Heyo! Stressful as salad these days. I have to finish a paper on Computer Aided Language Learning for drama classes, find a room for rent for a summer trip we would LIKE to take after this semester, finish a . . . . .well, hey, did you not see the list a few posts ago? Read it again and you'll recall.
If you are interested in parodies, spoofs, satires, and the like, you may be interested in discussions of these things and also creating them at my new social network thingy I have just started.
I have done some parodies of my own and always have been a fan of PDQ Bach, "Weird Al" Yankovic, films like "Airplane!" and "Young Frankenstein," and even graphic parodies like these:

Nearly December!?

It's hard to believe how fast time goes. It's been super busy here this semester. I'm involved with three different school dramas, from a full length to a series of 40 conversations. It's rather overwhelming. Add to this various health things and my wife's school's official evaluation, and it's just exhausting! I've been doing some creative work though, some songs and poetry and at least the start of some stories, though none of any real length that have been seen through to completion, sad to say. Oh and all of those three dramas! Some in several widely varying drafts. It's just a sort of high powered life that lays me low. Dealing with depression is also a struggle, but I think I'm learning some good coping strategies and my therapist says I am getting better; I've been seeing her since early this calendar year. Hugs and respect to you all! Chris

Busy times, busy busy times

Hey there! Well there are THREE trips to China for our merry quintet, in various combinations. First is the current trip Coral is taking to Szechuan, as part of a school group. Next, she and I are going to Beijing for a singing contest...gotta figure that one out and see what we pick for her to sing that's about 1:20 long. Then Grandma Chen, Amy, and Eowyn will go to Macau for a little fun trip. . .
And there's much much more. I have music to write for online ensembles: one with strings, and one for singers. Or one for the combined group: Stringers.
And stories and poems and a big script for the fall drama....wheee.
