Making movies, on location






Hello, Ducks!




Starzina Starfish-Browne here with your Eric’s! Daily! Horoscope! for WinesDay,  December TurdyOnest, 2014.



Happy Birthday to Stephan, who turns twenty-four today right here in The City That Loves You (On Your) Back. 





And Happy New Years Eve to the rest of you.  We Our Own Self Personally will be New Years Eveing at the Murder Mystery Factory, where the show is sold out, despite the fact that We could barely scrape together enough actors to appear in it.  Also, We are still in need of a few extra bar servers to sling drinks, should you find yourself with no New Years Eve plans and in need of a few dollars.




(We are growing a little weary, quite frankly, of the Murder Mystery Factory, specifically the amount of work We have to do outside of the place, for which We are not compensated.  Clearly, this is an issue with which We shall have to deal in the new year.)




Apropos of nothing, We just found out on SitOnMyFaceBook that they apparently still print TV Guide. Who knew?  Also, WHY?





Speaking of hysterical reenactments AND paychecks, We are about to embark upon a directing endeavor at a local historical landmark which may be of interest, at this point, to some of Our Gentle Readers who are Fluffya actors.  Herewith some info; hit Us up for more:

The Mechanical Theater seeks male and female actors for upcoming production of “She Stoops to Conquer.”
Auditions will be held on January 11th from 1 pm to 3 pm and January 12th from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Physick House (321 South 4th Street.)
The production will take place at the Powel House (244 South 3rd Street) from April 9th through April 19th. The play is a Restoration Comedy first performed in London in 1773.  The production will be directed by Eric Singel. 

Please send a headshot and resume to Loretta.vasile@gmail.com. Auditions will consist of reading from the script.  No monologue required.  Auditioners will be seen on a first come first served basis.  If you would like to audition but can only come shortly after the specified times please let us know and we will try to accommodate you.  Actors will receive 7.6% of the gross ticket sales as compensation.


(This is the company that produced the Walker and O’Dare radio plays in which you, of course, saw Us perform, as well as this past Halloween’s sold-out run of The Masque of Poe. Info on ticket sales will follow.  Be there or be square.)




In other news, here is the e-pissode from last Christmas season that everybody seems (according to Our Google-O-Meter™)  to be revisiting all of a sudden:  http://ericsdailyhoroscope.blogspot.com/2013/12/she-works-hard-for-money.html   Enjoy!

Here is the link with which you may share Our Capricorn video with both of your friends:   http://youtu.be/m3Aa_X_HoVM



And here, for your further edification, is Our very first Capricorn video:





Upon reflection, these two videos are amongst Our much more densely-plotted cinematic efforts, due to the fact that Our director actually is a Capricorn (although quite unlike the unseen character from the videos).







We often ponder, in the endless time afforded to Us by the fact that We are almost universally ignored, how many of Our Gentle Readers actually realize that, if viewed in order, Our videos actually have ongoing plots and storylines.  Then, of course, We realize that Our Gentle Readers are all imaginary, and we curl up into the fetal position…




Moving on, didja know that We have been e-pisstling e-pissodes of these e-pisstles in one form or another since 2001?  And that the earliest dead-tree archival records from 2004 are now TEN YEARS OLD, and can be found (for a small fee) here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/eric-singel/erics-daily-horoscope-2004/paperback/product-300894.html  ?



 
Thank Gawd We didn’t stray from the point.

In celebrity birthday news, it is Val Kilmer’s birthday.  Of which We were unaware earlier, when SitOnMyFaceBook informed Us that he would be starring as Tony Soprano in a Sopranos reboot/prequel.  We are fairly certain We Do Not Approve.




We DO, on the other hand (or some such body part) approve of Olympic gymnast Jonathan Horton, also having a birthday today.  Not to mention a birthday suit.




Now is the time to snap into action (That sentence is a lot snappier when rewritten s “Snap on your Snap-On™ Tools and snap into Teenage Mutant Ninja Snapping Turtle action!”  Just sayin’.)




(You’re viZZZualizing that now, aren’t you?  Perverts.)




— you’re not going to get another opportunity like this for quite some time! (Insert “opportunity’s knockers” joke here.)




Your energy is perfect (Um…have you MET Us?)




for making a move (Or a movie?)



(Speaking of movies, We scheduled Our Own damn self to work tonight.  (Not that there was anyone else to do it, but still…) Why the hell We’re not sitting home watching The Poseidon Adventure, We’ll never know.)




and getting others to do the same, if necessary. (Why would We care if other people are making a movie?  Are We in it?)




Letting your mind be quiet has encouraged all sorts of brilliant new ideas to germinate inside your head — and today they start to sprout. (Okay, izzit just Us, or does that sound revolting?)




 The crazier the notion, the more likely it will be successful, (Mmm-hmm.  ‘Cause that’s worked out so well so far.)




so listen to yourself (Sorry, did We say something?)




(Heh…see what We did there?  Honestly, the humor in here is so deeply layered and multifaceted, even We don’t get it.)




— don’t edit or pare down at all. (Since when do We ever edit?  Ain’t nobody got time for that.)




Follow wherever curiosity leads you, (Like to the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant?)




(That one might take you a second….THERE ya go!)




and sparkling inspiration will smack you in the face.  (How rude!  (Sparkling Inspiration is a stripper, yes?))




The more random your activities are now, the better. (Lovely.)




Why not head out into the world with no plan other than to be spontaneous and keep your eyes peeled? (Because (A.) We have to work tonight, Friday, and Saturday, and (2.) We’d much rather keep other people’s eyes peeled.  With a potato peeler.)




The world is yours to enjoy and explore.  (We’re just gonna leave that steaming pile of crap alone.)



(Who wants cake?)




Namaste, MotherFuckers.



In gaseousness,

At sixteen, she escaped her humble beginnings by running off with Doctor Browne’s Traveling Medicine Show and, more to the point, Doctor Browne. Following the dissolution of this unfortunate entanglement (Doctor Browne was a Virgo and Starzina is, of course, an Aries), which produced a daughter, Starzina entered a contest in Soap Opera Digest and won a scholarship to Oxford (yes, in ENGLAND), where she earned her doctorate in the newly-created dual major of Astrology and Human Sexuality. There is absolutely NO TRUTH to the rumor that Starzina’s second daughter has Royal blood, despite tabloid photographs allegedly depicting her cavorting on the Italian Riviera with Princes William and Harry, clad only in Prussian helmets and armbands of questionable taste. Starzina currently resides with her daughters in Philadelphia, the City That Loves You (On Your) Back, where she enjoys Double Coupon Day at the local SuperCruise and “encouraging” the coxswain of the Penn rowing team.

They got the fire down below






Hello, Ducks!




Starzina Starfish-Browne here with your Eric’s! Daily! Horoscope! for GoodPieRupeeTuesday,  December Turdiest, 2014.



Happy Birthday to Alyson, who turns twenty-four today right here in The City That Loves You (On Your) Back. 





Happy Birthday also to Kyle, who also turns twenty-four today, also  right here in The City Of Brotherly Love Handles.




And Happy Birthday to Ethan, who and turns twenty-four today.  In Hoboken, which is a suburb of New York, New York: The City That Doesn’t Sleep (With Us). Which is where Jason turns twenty-four today (and Happy Birthday, Jason), unless he’s on world tour somewhere. (Or should that be “on world tour everywhere”?  (Geography is difficult, especially around the holidays.))




Happy Belated Birthday, meanwhile, to Chelsea, and Cliff, and David, and Justin, each of whom turned twenty-four sometime since We last e-pisstled.  


And last but not Lee Strasberg, Happy Belated Birthday to Steve, who historically reenacts the only Founding Father who, apparently, was hawtt.  (Thomas Jefferson, in case you were wondering.)




We Our Own Self Personally have returned from The Hinterlands, where We celebrated The Holidays with The Sainted Mother and various and sundry family.  Upon Our return, We were whirlwind-visitated upon by TCBITWWW (The Cutest Boy In The Whole Wide World, for you newbs), and have only just today returned to (what, for Us, passes for) normal.  And tomorrow, We are back to the grind at the Murder Mystery Factory, where at least, on a positive note, paychecks await Us.




Speaking of hysterical reenactments AND paychecks, We are about to embark upon a directing endeavor at a local historical landmark which may be of interest, at this point, to some of Our Gentle Readers who are Fluffya actors.  Herewith some info; hit Us up for more:

****************************************



In celebrity birthday news, it is the birthday of someone called Ryan Sheckler, who is famous for being a “skateboarder”.  Which is apparently now a thing.  And here, We would have thought he would be famous for “looking like that”.




You are finding it easier than ever to push yourself in a bold new direction  (Clearly, Kelli has heard about Our “Plaid Is Not A Color” campaign.)




— so take a second look at your goals and figure out what you really want to do with the next year or so.  (Win PowerBall™.)




Not all people fulfill their promises, (No…rilly?!?)




and today you get a fresh perspective on someone who is veering close to being a hypocrite.  (Note to Self:  attempt to ascertain why there are so many hypocrites, and yet apparently no hypercrites.)




This person’s aims are more ambitious than their abilities. (And you should see his anus!  (And he should see Uranus!  (And you both could live happily ever after!)))




Believe what you see and form your own opinions. (Fine…show Us Uranus.)




Your honest assessment could help them, (Is the phrase “ass assessment” now occurring to anyone?  Just Us?  Alrighty, then.)




but are you willing to chance their volatile reaction? (Do We really want “Uranus”, “ass assessment”, and “volatile reaction” all in the same paragraph?  We think not.)




Keep your distance from folks (Whose ass assessment reveals a volatile reaction?)




who aren’t capable of facing facts. (Them too.  (For those who enjoy glimpses behind Our Highly-Trained Professional scenes, We are currently torn between a “fart” joke, and a “flinging poo” joke.  Decisions, decisions.))




Are you gonna wait around, or will you step up and make the first move? (Hey, you’re  the ass(tromalogical) ho(roscopulist)…shouldn’t you KNOW what We’re “gonna” do?)




The stars definitely favor the latter now. (That’s a typo…the stars actually favor the latte.)




Send messages to a couple of hotties online.  (So many of Our Gentle Readers are hotties.. (Paging Thomas Jefferson…Thomas Jefferson to the white courtesy phone…))




 Ask that certain someone out to lunch.  (What if they already ARE out to lunch?)




(Heh…see what We did there?)





(Who wants cake?)



Namaste, MotherFuckers.
