(Questions asked by cosmosmariner
1) Why Jem? :P
Why not? :P I was a big fan of the dolls and cartoon when I was a kid, and that fandom got reborn when I started participating in a "Jem" RPG on Yahoo Groups. And just like all fun things from the 80s, it's fun today, but when you re-watch that show as an adult, you tend to have a different (more mature) take on it than you did as a kid.
2) How did you get into RHPS?
I always say I wouldn't have gotten into Rocky Horror if I weren't a MST3K fan. When I was in my first semester of college (many many moons ago), one of my friends asked if I had ever been to see Rocky Horror before. I told her I had heard of it, but had never seen it. She said if I liked watching MST3K, I'd probably get into a midnight showing of Rocky Horror because all you do is make fun of the movie (like on MST3K), and there was a cast "acting out" the movie as it was going. So I went with her and a couple of other friends and had lots of fun.
Then maybe about a year later, when I was still active on instant messaging on Yahoo and AOL, that
when I met (the now dreaded) Zero Phoenix online. And we started talking pretty regularly online and became friends, and SOMEhow he remembered me from that one night I went to Rocky Horror, so he started really talking me into coming back to seeing another show. At that time, he wasn't in cast, but he was friends with pretty much everyone in cast, so I got to know those people and made friends with them, and after going to see the show on a semi-regular basis for a couple of years, I made the decision to join cast. I kind of wanted to be Magenta, but Ol' Man Shawn Stutler and Crazy Ryan Markle and Ed "This is my jam!" Lipinksi (aka supermachodude
) told me that they were REALLY looking for a new Janet. And that's how it alllll began.
3) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live, and why?
Southern California, maybe around Los Angeles. Yes, I know cost of living is ridiculously high. Yes, I know that area is a hot ground for earthquakes and mudslides. But the true fact of the matter is that it's nice and sunny, and there's a dry heat in the summertime (unlike the humid summers we get here in Chicagoland). It's near a major metropolitan area where there's always something going on and I could never get bored. And it's a far way away from here in Indiana, and it would piss my parents off. :D
4) What is your favorite guilty pleasure movie?
Oh I have quite a few, but I'll probably have to go with She-Devil.
It's so late 80s and cheese-tastic, and Meryl Streep really doesn't do enough comedy.
5) What is the one song that speaks to you in a really personal way - that it feels like the band wrote just for you?
"I Hope You Dance" by LeeAnn Womack
