Just a reminder of what all we need to have on the Tie-Dye and Box Party Day [10 Oct 2005|06:17pm]

1. Boxes of Rit Dye(get 2 of one color if its a dark color) We currently have 1 of Orange and Purple, 2 of Black, and green and blue were volunteered to obtain by Amy and/or Cara

2. Large Metal Forks/Spoons for Stirring(Big salad spoon type, meat fork type, or even just something really long like a big old metal rod)

3. BUCKETS!!! (AS MANY AS POSSIBLE WE DO NEED!) We have ~15-20 buckets people already have said could be obtained, but that's kinda boosted up by Vincent's claimage, so yeah. Just bring as many as you can find.

4. Turkey Basters(Also Important) We need about 1 per person/colour

5. Vinegar (Any Kind will do)

6. Also we're looking for ~6 boxes and soem scizzors and a roll or two of duct-tape for the box party aspect.

Though you'll want to bring decorative items if you wanna embellish 'em, b/c I know there'll be wrapping paper, but past that I don't know what'll be there. I'm gonna drop off three boxes over there during the week.

And yeah, we're having a MEETING WEDNESDAY AFTER SCHOOL REAL QUICK NOMORE THAN SAY 5-10 MINUTES For Discussing the activities of this 4-day weekend. And even if you can't get together at Becky's Grandmother's house, supplies are still very much appreciated/probably needed.

I'm probably going to get some pink and red rit dye myself.

Hello friends! [25 Sep 2005|11:29pm]

[ mood | surprised ]

It's Hailey C. Shannon! Yes, that one! I was in this club in my days at the old school of Henry Clay! What have you guys been up to, I'd love to hear from you!

[23 Sep 2005|07:29pm]

So. Box-making was amusing today. Don't even try to deny it :P

I was listening to some podcasts, and had a stupid, but I guess cool, idea. Every other week, we should take some of everybody's writing, and make a podcast out of it. We just read whatever we want to, and broadcast to the world what awesome writers we have at Henry Clay.

...okay, so I have no clue how we'd go about that. But it'd still be neat. Yeah? Haha.

(Maybe we could all record it onto our computers, and then e-mail it to somebody who would then put it into one? Haha. I'm too into my funky ideas.)

Yes, I'll leave before you all throw tomatoes at me.

What is podcasting?
You don't need an iPod for it, you actually don't even need iTunes (although it's recommended). There are other ways in which to listen to Podcasts, such as Odeo and Podnova.

It's a really neat thing, I listen to two podcasts religiously, hehe.

As the meeting of the GSA's proponents has been axed by Nochta.

So, bring your boxes and ideas and we'll be putting out the traps for some student lit.

The Long Anticipated Flagship Tell It Slantly snippet. I call it "The Jesus Poo" but it's untitled. [15 Sep 2005|09:40pm]

A man gets up. The man goes to take a crap. He tries to flush the toilet but he hears a voice. A deep thundering voice that commands him not to flush. He looks down and it's Jesus' face on a turd.
"What!" says the man
"It is I your lord and savior" said the turd "I have come back for your souls"
"But Lord, why are you on a turd?"
"Because the world is full of shit and I am the essence of the world."

I am following Dan Bernitt's mailing list, and in the last update, he attatched the following message at the bottom:

"PS: Know of any gay and lesbian artists (any art form: dance, visual art, instrumental music, vocal music, creative writing, film, theatre, fire-breathing and whatnot) in Kentucky? E-mail queerartists@danbernitt.com with information on their work and how to contact them. I'm looking to start a Queer Artist Alliance in Lexington and have a performance/exhibition gala in Spring 2007."

I am a male bisexual writer/poet, and I live in the Lexington area....could I be of any help to your group? I also know some friends that are of alternative oreintations..."


"Hi there,

Absolutely! While I'm still trying to figure out all of the details and start working on this organization, I would love to have you exhibit your work in some way. I'm hoping for the work to be as non-juried as possible -- I want to give as many people in our community a chance. As for literary arts, there will likely be an open-mic/organized reading of some kind. I just got off the phone with Ellen Hagan (straight ally and Def Poet); she's interested in leading some workshops.

The Queer Artist Alliance is going to be modeled after different artist conferences, with a weekend of exhibitions and performances -- likely in the spring of 2007. Yes, two years away, but I'm hoping the event will work out.

If you could send me some more information about your work and maybe forward this message to your GLBT friends, that'd be wonderful.

Thanks for your interest! Keep in touch!

From Dan Bernitt:

"Hey folks,

It's been a hectic couple of months recently, and this summer will be even more hectic -- with performances. Just a quick update for what's been going on recently: at the beginning of March, the University of Kentucky held its first annual V-Day performance of The Vagina Monologues; I served as the director for the show. I am proud to announce that those performances combined raised over $4000 for The Women's Place, a campus organization dedicated to ending violence against women, and nearly 700 people were in attendance. At the end of that month I was invited to perform alongside one of my mentors, Shayla Lawson, at the Kentucky Women Writers Conference's Sex and the Country dinner with Candace Bushnell. (And, goodness, do I have stories to tell.)

April and May have, so far, been slow as I have been preparing for this summer. My solo show, Moments of Disconnect, has been selected for inclusion in two (2!) fringe festivals. For those who don't know, the fringe festivals were started in Scotland and were created to offer performance space and options to artists not selected for Scotland's mainstage theatre festivals. What the artists decided to do was head to the fringes of the town to start their own festival -- thus the fringe festival. The idea has popped up around the world, offering a venue for artists who aren't necessary mainstream to exhibit their work. I've been selected to be in two of America's seven fringe festivals. Thanks to a generous grant from the folks at the Kentucky Center for the Arts and the Kentucky Governor's School for the Arts, I'll be able to perform without any financial concern.

This summer I will appear in Cincinnati and Provincetown. Below is information on ticketing and directions.

June 2-4, 8, 10, 2005 - Cincinnati, OH
Memorial Hall, 1225 Elm Street

July 22-23, 26-30, 2005 - Provincetown, MA
Provincetown Inn
Tickets: $15/$12 - 9 PM nightly
(Presented by the Provincetown Fringe Festival)

The Provincetown Inn is a small, intimate venue, so be sure to arrive early. The Inn is also wheelchair accessible, air-conditioned, and offers free parking. Also available each night are free refreshments (like wine, seltzer, and lollipops.) Tickets are available online, by calling 508.487.2666, or at the Aquarium Mall (209 Commercial Street) between noon and 8 PM, and at the door. To order tickets online, check out the link below.

( Get Tickets ) and ( Get Directions )


Order your tickets early -- and stock up on gas while prices are low(er)! Also this summer I will be performing with comedian Bernie Lubbers and R&B singer Robbie Bartlett. The dates are still being confirmed, but the cities we're planning to hit are Louisville, Lexington, and Newport. I'll keep you updated.
Thanks, folks. You all have been a tremendous help over the past couple years, and I really do thank you for the support and encouragement.

Take care and drink your water,
Dan Bernitt
and the staff of Sawyer House Productions
(yes, there's now a staff!)

Poetry! ^^;;; [20 Mar 2005|12:02am]


just telling you all that I typed up a TON of poetry...and I'd really like it if people could look through it and tell me what could be done better, what they think, which ones they like the best, etc. I'd post it here, but I wanted to keep the spacing I did in Rich-Text, and when you switch to Rich-Text, it makes the "post to" field dissappear down below. Sorry!
