I wouldn’t have my best friends.
I wouldn’t have something to look forward to every day.
I wouldn’t have this deep adoration for a story and characters that I have so deeply rooted in my heart.
i was thinking about doing a late night stream showing off my rad mouse skillz
would anyone come watch if i did?
The Big Bird vs. Romney by Isaac J. Litman
Big Bird is the hero Sesame Street deserves. Isaac arted a brilliant response to the recent Presidential Debacle, adding: “Mitt Romney and his people understand the cost of everything, but not the value”.
So I volunteered at my town’s haunted house last Friday.
While I was on duty I tried to scare someone and they kicked me.
They kicked me.
After we were done I talked to a couple other people who also volunteered and they shared similar stories of getting punched/hit/pushed/kicked/ect.
Guys, when you go through a haunted house; you shouldn’t touch the actors. Please, don’t touch, kick, punch, push, or do any other kind of physical violence to the people who are trying to scare you. Don’t stop and lecture us about how you aren’t afraid of us, don’t swear at our faces and flip us off, and please understand that we’re just trying to do our job. A lot of what the actors do is actually just to make sure you get from one room to the other quickly and safely in a fashion that you paid for. We have to make sure you get to the next room in time to have the next group to come through, so please don’t stop and have a annoying conversation with us, or just stop in the middle of the room because you think it’s funny.
Please respect the actors, and the haunt. Thank you.
^ this! although my more social characters don’t mind conversation on slow nights (Just try and get Chatty Cassie Cannibal to shut up!)
But really thought DON’T HURT HAUNT ACTORS, THEY ARE PEOPLE THAT YOU PAID TO SEE DO THEIR JOBS. Do you go around punching garbage men or kicking cashiers for doing their jobs? Care to go around flipping off movie stars (they’re actors too after all)?
Yes, this, please. Most of us are volunteers and many are not even actors the rest of the year. I am a theatre kid and am also fairly used to being kicked by fearful strangers but that doesn’t make it any more fun. Also, standing screaming in a hallway covered in fake blood, an itchy costume, and stage makeup in order to get service hours or help out a school or friend is kind of sucky anyways without being physically assaulted by scared kids.
Oh my god, thank you. I work in a local haunt and, last year, I got slapped by a grown damned man, and also apparently some redneck went through and sprayed several of our actors with deer piss.
Seriously, guys. It’s not hard to not be a dick. And we’re technically not allowed to touch you. True story! It’s in the rules. We might accidentally brush you or something sometimes, but, other than that, we are not allowed to make contact with you, and definitely not allowed to hurt you. So, please, don’t hurt us, either. We’re just human beings underneath the masks and makeup.
My boyfriend’s told me he’s been punched before and I got really worried and wondered how anyone could be stupid enough to punch an actor.
THIS YEAR, I’M WORKING AT A HAUNTED HOUSE, AND I’VE BEEN SCREAMED AT BY PATRONS THAT THEY’RE NOT AFRAID OF ME.
I HAVEN’T BEEN PUNCHED THIS YEAR, BUT LAST YEAR I GOT A FIST TO THE FACE OF SOME GUY WHO GOT SCARED.
WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO TOUCH OR CURSE AT YOU. WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO BREAK CHARACTER. WE’D APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULDN’T TRY TO MAKE US BREAK CHARACTER, HIT US, OR SCREAM AT US. WE’RE JUST ACTING.
I got inspired by soft grunge Equius and made this.
i unironicly like this. it’s cute
