CHAPTER 16- Talent Show & the other talent show
MORE DETAILS WILL BE
ADDED. JUST WANT TO
GET THE SONGS UPLOADED
Ahh, it the talent show again... full of talented (me) and non-talented (the rest) people.
It was lunch time. 4-16? I was nervous as hell and missed some low falsetto notes.
The ONLY Rehearsal
That Saturday was the busiest Saturday I've ever encountered yet...
First I was in Hayward for the CMEA festival in Jessica Vincent's ride, her lil' bro's doing a "Buzz
Lightyear VS Spiderman" thing. Then like an hour before the Talent show, I ran home to
pack my finger puppets and change into my "special occasions" outfit. And ran back and still have hmmm...
8 minutes (I think) to get ready.
The talent show starts with A familiar song...
(lyrics' directly from MTV's music awards, that's why)
(Why was there a pause there you ask... it's for Chad's line "Whoa Tyler, I think that they
want us to start the show") And yes, I helped Chad and Tyler to make it possible... the week before the
We had 3 Chicago acts... just like the Ohlone with Bye Bye Birdie... except it's Chicago...
Then some more people do their crap... then it's intermission, and I... do my
it's more like a pre-show... I walk around with my Elmo doll doing his voice. Which was
sensational, but not that many people cares.
There WAS supposed to be
a song after
intermission, but the spot was given to improv.
(I changed the lyrics on this one) Then... it's my turn to take over the stage.
Chad: Hey Tyler, can you feel this? (pokes tyler)
Chad: How about this? (pokes in different area)
Chad: How about... (raises fist, ready to punch)
Tyler: Whoa, violence is not the answer, Chad.
Chad: Alright, can you feel the love tonight? (offers hug)
Tyler: (backs away) No thanks, but after the next act I will.
All aboard! Here's Ovan Chan doing "CYFtLT".
Chad: Ovan, that guy with the Elmo doll at intermission?
The Kayhan plays his song about cutting off your fingers. With his instantly-made-up band, Eye Pickle
Then... more mayhem. And all acts are done. The judges was given time to
waste, and I volunteered to go
build a pyramid. When they finally announce the winners, I pretend to be the usher that's really excited about
his job, thinking that I wouldn't win anyway. And alas, I didn't. And then there are more thanks given out...
By this point, the tech crew was pooped. And Adam probably said, "alright,
let's just go leave this s***"
Eventually, the last song was cut off. STUPID TECH PEOPLE!
This is the section that's really worth the reading... here are some possibilities why I didn't win.
This year's performance compare with my freshmen year: The best I can give with a lower budget.
Actually... I might have a better future than some of the winners:
Omar- I dance for Missy Elliot now.
Ovan- Hey, she was there at my talk show last week. I would've seen you if she did a song.
Aspect- We play for clubs.
Ovan- I RUN clubs.
Sam Ray- I'm in a world-class orchestra.
Ovan- I'm world-class.
Lindsay- I sold Trillion copies and now crowned as the queen of Mormon Pop.
Ovan- I'm humble and doesn't brag about myself.
There's always next year... for me to loose again.
