Yesterday I visited a friend in the middle of Indiana. My plan was to record E.E. Cummings's [i carry your heart with me (i carry it in] on his beautiful property and upload it same day. Unfortunately, for me, the heat got to me and I had to skip the posting. However, instead of just going ahead to Day 6, I wanted to double up today and include Day 5 as well.
*Edit - Day 17. I was really unhappy with the previous recording of this E.E. Cummings piece, so today, Day 17, I rerecorded it and posted it.
Today I wanted to dedicate a piece to my family at Academy of Art University. Last month I finished my grad degree. Next month marks three years since I left for San Francisco. It's also at that time that I met some of the most important people in my life at my acting school. This piece describe perfectly how I feel about them. It's so timely as three Winters, three Summers, three Springs have past; three April perfumes in hot Junes burned.
Today I decided to post my first video on TikTok. I don't know why I fell down that social media rabbit hole, but it's another creative outlet to do off-the-wall, foolish things under my alter ego, Prince Ariel. I'l be posting something more traditional tomorrow.
Today I'm not posting a new video on YouTube. Instead, I'm performing as my burlesque persona Prince Ariel in a Chicago-produced burlesque show online via Twitch. If you're interested in seeing what Prince Ariel has to offer, you can check them out on Instagram, Twitter, Tiktok, Twitch, and Youtube. They have channels all their own.
