This whole production designer thing is a lot of work! If I'm not standing on a ladder painting sets for 16 hours straight I'm pulling my hair out trying to find costumes, grommets, devil puppets and the theme music to Peter and the Wolf on CD! Now that the show has finally premiered, I can actually get some sleep and boy do I need it. A few hours here, a couple of hours there just doesn't do it for me anymore. I'm a cranky Pia when I've not had enough zz's.
Opening night was great though. A few moments of outright panic beforehand but in the end people laughed and that was the most important thing of all. Awwwww. How Doogie Howser of me.
So anyway, now that the show is up and running I can get back to the nitty gritty of Y. I'm starting a story arc called Tongues of Flame which deals with events that occured in Widow's Pass (drawn by Goran Parlov). I'm thinking you'll dig it. And don't worry, I'll be staying on for the following arc as well. A lot will be happening over the next eight months and I wouldn't miss it for the world.
Also, some interesting news may be coming over the next week. Very happy about it but I also don't want to jinx things. More soon.
And hey, the bright boys at the WB are cancelling Angel. The rat bastards! After tonights episode I really wish they would reconsider. Smile Time was wonderfully devious despite it's jump-the-shark premise. Loved every minute of it. And yay for Wes! Next week looks like a gutwrench. Classic Joss!
I'm a little bummed about not being able to make it out to the Emerald City Comic Con on the 29th. I was all psyched up and then I saw that our final performance night of Sword Play is on the 28th. There are no early trains, and no buses that can get out there in time. And it's such a wonderful con too. I need to learn how to drive. Grrr.
Sun will be up soon. 'Night.
