Still working on lines. Show is tomorrow. Trying to get the lines memorized completely because all of the "cheats" that we've tried have failed, and there are no other real options.

I have four scenes. Two of them I have down pretty well. One of them I have down about halfway, but it has the line from hell*. The long lines are killing me. And it's not like they're throwaway lines either.

This is the first time that I've ever been this far off in learning lines. It's really throwing me.

you might have to do it with glasses. Not a good option. I'm running mine continuously

I'm superconcentating on the individual lines right now. It's coming along.

Try this:
record someone reading the line just prior to your line, then you read your line. Do this for all the lines you are having issues with, put them on a CD and play it over and over again repeating the line as you read it.

That is how I used to memorize lines.

I've been doing that. I'm down to just having my lines on an MP3 player (one file per line) and have them set on repeat until the line gets drilled into my head.

It's because the lines are in Klingon. If they were in English, I'd be well done by now. With the Klingon, it's all phonetic memorization. It's like trying to memorize lists of random numbers.

First off, the title of this post made me think "Dude, bran. Works wonders."

Then I read the Klingon dialog.

Bloody Nora.

MonkeyDude and I will be there tomorrow to cheer you on. Oh, yeah, and provide a 3rd camera.

To Thespianism!
I saw the write up in the City Pages and I've heard that there was one in the Strib, too. I'm sorry that we'll miss it.

Break all of your limbs, good sir, and everyone else's too!
