Super quick post today, just because of the transition. Yay, the quarter has ended. I'm not very confident about my grades this quarter, becuause I had a lot of absences. (Being sick and my friend passing away...it added up) Fingers crossed that I can at least get a passing grade. I don't need A's. C's will be just fine.
So, below is a video of the current Octet from the Spring Show. She Bangs. It's so hilarious! I know I've got a few more Oldtet videos to get throught (not many, which is probably why I'm not getting to them. Stupid procrastination). Anyway, I admire these guys because their choreo is so smooth! And they have really gelled together as a solid group. I think they can make it to the ICCA finals...btw, semifinals are tomorrow, I think. Good luck Octet. You can do it! (Yes, you can!)
I was looking through my flair on Facebook, and I found stuff that were either Octet or Octet-ish flair. Cool, no?
It's pretty late. I came home with a migraine at about 4, fell asleep until nine, and have been UP ever since. Let Spring Break begin!
The quarter has unofficially ended today. I had a presentation today. Actually, it was a group presentation, and my mind went totally blank about halfway through my part and...um....uh... "Line!?!"
Some of the class were planning to go to Bill's Off Broadway and celebrate, but I'm not much of a drinker, and I needed to catch up on sleep (since I missed so many hours these past two weeks).
So, I have good news and great news. The good news is that I've been getting some good responses about the site. Not a huge amount, but all positive, so that makes me happy. The great news is that the last two responses have been from Octet dudes.
I received this response on the third. No name attached, but from the timeline mentioned, I think I know (the faces) of the group members. I hope that the sender is Josh, because he's a cutie. Who am I kidding? They're all cuties.
Comments: high octane was also the 05-06 octet too. we were the most recent octet to advance in the ICCAs that year, and won best choreo for our whole set (bohemian rhapsody, men in tights and elephant love medley) and best arrangement for our elephant love medley. the current group is competing this year i believe. be on the lookout for that!
So, how excited should I be about that? I totally freaked. From the songs listed, my favorite is "Elephant Love Medley" from Moulin Rouge...
These guys are so humorous when they sing. I love when Zach sings "I'll drink all the time..." and the backs sing "please invite us"...because we all know that drinking groups usually have an a cappella problem. Just kidding. Just something I read somewhere.
The video was put together by Cal Matt, who did an excellent piece called "Mouth Noise, A Cappella in Motion" about college a cappella. I suggest you find it on YouTube and enjoy it.
