I usually have a little blurb about Stage Movement class every week during the Spring semesters. This year, they have their own class blog where I’ll put most of our stuff, but I couldn’t resist sharing with you this game, just in case you don’t follow us there: I had common phrases printed on big cards. Each group picked one and then had to come up with a way to show that phrase using only physicality. Here’s one example in video, and the still pic is another one (I showed the still on fb and someone guessed it right away!). Can you guess what it is before the students do? ~Jenn
Just today realizing the Tara King period of old “spy-fi” series from the ’60s The Avengers is boooo-rinnnng, I went and did a little interwebz-style research. Turns out, Emma Peel is the one for me. But Pussy Galore herself, Honor Blackman, was quite the pivotal actor in this world: she was also a judoka. Here is this interesting old interview with her. Amazing what you can find these days on YouTube, eh? ~Jenn
Ian and I go way back to highschool–we were both geeky writers then and also both involved in theatre. I’ve appeared on his blog a couple times, and now his interview appears here. Definitely check out the links he provides below and enjoy his work! ~Jenn
5 Questions: Ian Healy Interviewer: Jenn Zuko Boughn
I like the fantastic aspect. The first SF film I recall seeing in a theatre was The Empire Strikes Back. Spaceships zooming around, laser swords, and asteroids! I was hooked. Ever since then I’ve sought out science fiction entertainment. An offshoot of that was superheroes, which appealed to my inner vigilante. I still have my very first comic book: Captain Carrot & His Amazing Zoo Crew #12.
Nowadays, the attraction to me is things that aren’t now but may be someday, or things that might have been. I write stories that I wish I’d read, because nobody else has written them yet. I hope that maybe someday, a starry-eyed 10-year-old will pick up one of my books and find the same love for speculative fiction I did.
2) What writer/s do you want to write like?
Oh, where to begin? Let’s go with this list: Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Mike Resnick, Alan Dean Foster, Paolo Bacigalupi, and George R. R. Martin for now.
3) Handwriting or computer: why, and what kind? What do you do about writer
‘Nuff said, I think, yes? (thanks, i09!) ~Jenn
Enjoy this guest-post on the To Shin Do blog about women in To-Shin Do, particularly one of my students Jane Bright–she’s a talented, smart young lady. Watch out, world, when this star becomes an adult. Heck, watch out now! ~Jenn
