"In the scenes of rehearsals of Alison’s play, Tatiana’s singing was recorded live for authenticity even though she was prerecorded for safety. The ensemble was also live, although the piano was not. In both cases, Tatiana and the ensemble wear earbuds to hear the piano playback. If they show on-camera, visual effects paint them out. Stay tuned for more of the musical in coming episodes!" —The Hive Recap: Nature Under Constraint and Vexed

I got Alejandro sucked into Orphan Black since I was rewatching the first season over the past two weeks, and luckily he likes it as much as I do. We watched the second season premiere last night, and this scene was magic.

I was feeling restless yesterday after Sunday morning yoga and a late lunch out. Neither of us wanted to go home, but couldn’t decide what we should do. He made me do the choosing, so I decided on checking out an Austin greenbelt I hadn’t yet been to. I wanted to be outside even though it was kind of gloomy and gray. After missing a turn, we ended up parking on the wrong side of the road, so we didn’t find the “real” trail until after we were ready to head back home. As we started to wander and realize we weren’t in the right place, I was worried that I’d led us astray and had wasted a chunk of the afternoon. Optimistically, we walked a little bit farther and found a small trail that led to a big open field. I checked off the Austin bucket list item of frolicking among the Texas wildflowers and felt a sense of exploration I’d been missing. 

Afterwards, I finally watched a few episodes of Broad City while he strung rackets.

It wasn’t the day I’d envisioned, but unexpectedly finding something cool was maybe even better than what I’d planned. And now we’ve got even more to explore for next time.

Found this in my drafts….seems good for a Monday morning.

I’m determined to have plants I don’t kill, so I bought some cacti.

Also, found a cute table for my patio on craigslist. It’s coming together!

The Dumb Charms of Orphan Black

Orphan Black had me worried for a bit.

The trailer for the second season of BBC America’s relentlessly entertaining series made the show look like a dark, slick techno-drama—all rain and trip-hop and guns. Saturday’s premiere opens in that mode: Protagonist Sarah Manning runs frantically through a storm, takes refuge in an empty diner, and has a violent confrontation with goons who seem like they’d be pals with The Matrix’s Agent Smith.

Uh-oh. Had Orphan Black decided to go all-in on the dystopian-thriller vibe you’d expect from a show about human clones hunted by religious cults and scientific cabals? If so, that would mean ditching a lot of what made the first season so lovable: the cheeky humor, the manic tone switches, the satirical edge, and the excellent hijinks provided by Tatiana Maslany playing more than a half-dozen different characters with distinct personalities.

Luckily, after the premiere’s title sequence, we learn that this remains basically the same series as before.
