Script So Far (Comments would be awesome)

-TV Static Noise-

Wrestling Monologue

Lights up, stands a figure, alone mighty powerful.

Voice Over: "At ringside here is the World Heavyweight Champion of the world the one and only--"

Interupt by the figure

Jack Tully: "They all know me, there doesn't need a introduction, but just in case you forgot I am the king of the ring, the master of grapple, the high flyer, the reflection or perfectiom, the brawler of all brawlers, the best than all the rest, Jack Tully."

"Well Tully, tonight you face the number one cotender for your the title--"

Interupt again by Jack Tully.

Jack Tully: "The title...don't you mean my world heavyweight championship which wrapped around my waist. Well let me tell you something. Tonight april 27th (note: date will change everytime performed) at the Smitcht Family Studio (note:place will change everytime performed) I'm going to give you the beating of a life time. And when it is all said and done I still will be World Heavyweight Champion of the world and don't forget to adjust that television, because it's time for Tully Vision folks!"

-TV Static noise-

That's what I have so far. Love to here some comments. I also have this but I would like to re write it. Any ideas.

"You unlock the door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another deminision - a deminision of sound, a deminision of sight a deminision of mind you're moving into a land of both shadows and things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Tully Zone."

On a side note. I've started calling people in my field. I emailed a bunch of people included the dean of NYU Tisch program. I got my first response. She writes:

Dear Tully:

I would always wish to be helpful but I am responsible for 1400 Drama majors here at Tisch and they have first call on my time and mentoring attention.

Good luck with your quest!
Good times. Well the quest continues until next time I'm Tully, stay classy Tully Viewers.

Lazy Sunday

Man I haven't blog since the 5th of February...What happen? 

Well lets just say I was capture by aliens and there technology was so far ahead from right now that they blog in their head. Nah I'm just kidding but I really need motivation for this one man show and I sorta got it last night when I saw 2 things. The 24 Hour Theater Project and The Roommate.

Well let me first start with....

The Roommate...This movie is clearly a rip of the 90s classic Single White Female. Don't believe me. Compare the two videos and you'll see why.

The Roommate is about a college student Sara finds that her new roommate Rebecca has an obsession with her, which quickly turns violent and Single White Female is about When a 'Single White Female' places an ad in the press for a similar woman to rent a room (to replace the boyfriend she's just left), all the applicants seem weird. Then along comes a level headed woman who seems to be just right. The new lodger has a secret past which haunts her. Well the plot summary is different for the movie but if you watch The Roommate and then watch Single White Female you think you will be watching the same movie. And The Roommate has Billy Zane. Billy Zane, remember him..just you case you forgot... he was the dude in Titanic and The Phantom. But anyway in conclusion (wow I sound like I'm giving a speech) The Roommate and Single White Female is the same movie. Now on to...

The 24 Hour Theater Project!!

The 24 Hour Theater Project this year was in my opinion a lot of fun. This time I got the chance to direct a play than hog the stage and upstage people as an actor. I had a wonderful cast and a wonderful writer and it was awesome. My play was called Willenbocker's Family Reunion. It was a lot of fun to do, but still I have need more motivation. I need to do something about this. Any suggestions. I would love to hear some. And tomorrow is V-Day so Happy V-Day folks.

Found Some One Man Shows for Viewers and Inspriations

So I know I posted already on the First Fat Tuesday of February but this just could not wait. I was researching and I found some one man shows. Check them out.

This dude is Charles Ross and his doing the first three movies of Star Wars in a one man show. Pretty clever. Here's a clip of him doing Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Here's this one man show with Freddy Zental. Different from the last one but I'm thinking of after my show being recording have a great way to campaign with an add like this.

First Fat Tuesday of February

21 more days until I turn 23. I can't believe it. Time flies by so much. But time will tell if the age of 23, the year of Michael Jordan will be a good year in my life. I've decided every time I turn a different year I associated that number with something or someone famous like 22 was my golden birthday.

But any who...back to the first Tuesday of February.

Ideas for Opening (Intro piece)

So I've been going back and forth with some ideas of how I should open the show. I first thought of opening with a monologue written by someone famous but then I thought this is my time to shine. Why not opening something with jazz, something with a bang, something like...teaching my audience etiquette (are you serious?). I found some cool videos online on a basic idea how I will do it but I think this for an intro or part of the show would be funny.

Here's one basic video (start video at 1:18) that I can base my sketch out of and I turn it into more something like this...

I think I can come up with something like that. Another idea I had was to do the introduction to be something like this while people are in their seat. And they hear this as a voice over.


Just some ideas I had some in this giant brain I have.

Goals This Week
  • Start working on personal website
  • Start writing one man show.
  • Blog about everyday...every minute...every second (If possible)
  • Present rough copy to Professors and Classmates
And I decided with a title for my show. I guess it's a working title. The working title is Tea Time with Tully.
