Thanks all, and hi Eric. Yes, your input on what is inappropriate would be most appreciated-- just tell me what's offensive and I'll do exactly that! :-)

What I'm really looking for are snickering tidbits or catch phrases that only gay men would know about. Kind of like secret "N-words". PM me if you like. I would like the installation to be funny on many levels, just like good cartoons that appeal to both kids and adults.

I don't know if you participate in the gay pride parade. I think it would be funny as hell if it started or ended at the Georgie Boy installation next year.

Snake: how are those bed spins treating you? Aint nothin' like a vino hangover, my friend!

MJM,

Will there be street noise from the seedy side of town? Lowly coming through the cracked window with water line stained drapes. Sherly a broken motel sign flickering in the back ground.

Stuff like a firetruck passing. Or a guy and his ole lady fighting.. Maybe a shot ring out now and then..

Good ambient stuff there, Unjon, thanks. I'm starting to lien toward giving Reno a miss and just making it the "Black Rock Motel" for reasons including the fact that his flashbacks as well as his talk about Broadway and touring off Broadway need to be "centered" when he comes back into a reality that is very present. That's where Smoochie Pooch and his abusive retorts come in.

I'm drawing some inspiration from that Aranofski movie, Requiem For A Dream in which the mother pulls in and out of the TV game show and how it becomes dark and haunting as it becomes a part of her hallucinations. I like the idea of canned laughter and applause, at least during Georgie Boy's flashbacks.

Jellyfish can you get your robot Georgie Boy to puff on a long slim one (in a holder of course) perchance? Most of the old queens I know seem to smoke :?

Good point about the smoking, Tiahaar. Our own Munz was successful once at installing a smoking apparatus on HotShot The Robot so I'll inquire with him. If there's too much cross-breeze in the diorama, nobody will see the smoke so we'll play with it. I would construct a prop cigarette in his hand, put a red LED in the end of it, then burn smoke oil and pass it out of his mouth whenever he's listening to Smoochie Pooch. I have to make sure that the two arms swinging back and forth, one with a brandy snifter and the other with the smoke, don't look too comical. Perhaps if I just hinge the smoking arm at the elbow to bring it up to his lips... hmmmm.

Something smacked me in the head recently regarding theme relevance that comes from personal experience. You see, my own personal mid life crises I believe is finally over, and it centered around Burning Man in a big way. Perhaps it saved me from buying a red Corvette convertible, but my fascination with youth and disappointments with my own lot in life are something I think would play out well through the Georgie Boy character. A constant, nagging "Is that all there is? Is it all downhill from here?" would be a fine undercurrent to the dialog. It was, for me, a very valid and earthshaking experience, yet there is no recognition of it in our society as a right of passage-- no elders that acknowledge it. It's the "perfect hoax" that Alan Watts refers to here:

There is a whole story in the Statler Brother's song:

Counting flowers on the wall

That don't bother me at all

Playing solitary till dawn

Smoking cigerettes and watching Captain Kangeroo

Geogie Boy and Zsu Zsu

Postby Mister Jellyfish Mister » Wed Oct 06, 2010 9:38 pm

In 2008, I lead a crew to build an installation called "Zsu Zsu: The Crybaby Drama Queen". Here's some footage with the Georgie Boy character interacting with Zsu Zsu and her pet ferret Feelth as portrayed through her trailer window using rear projection:

I think Georgie's camp music should be Barbara Streisand's Yentil soundtrack played at 16 rpm on a turntable.

Thanks, you two. I'm thinking mostly orchestral swells so Georgie can get ready to burst into song, only to be stifled by Smoochie Pooch followed by a record scratch or wind down like what we did with the music at the end of the Ein Hammer flame sequences.

I watched Sunset Boulevard with my daughter tonight and I gotta tell you we were blown away. Really got me thinking about Georgie's dark side. Stage lighting is going to be crucial, and I'm now thinking the diorama needs an automated red velvet theatrical curtain behind the chicken wire.

Also toying with the idea of using an old '70's looking soda machine with the big selection buttons labeled so participants can select the different groups of vignettes as though they were refreshing vintage beverages. Anybody remember Fresca?
