Album: 06-26 Herrang

     Album:2013:06-26 Herrang

A great year at Herrang Dance Camp, though sadly Calle was not available, so Alison and I ran Mission Impossible ourselves.

Consequently I worked far too hard.

Seems to be a strange trend in my life. I'll need to work on that.

Mission Impossible!

What is Mission Impossible?
(I think this was played week 2) [Video, 88M] ( comments)
The Mission Impossible Newsletter,
mainly created because this was the only way that Herrang would let us tell people about Calle's plight. ( comments)
The most amazing mission,
we save a bird's life. ( comments)
Actually true.
We had a bunch of dancers climbing up 40+ feet and trying to get to a bird that was 20 or so feet out. ( comments)
It took quite a bit of planning
and about 3-4 hours of work. ( comments)
The bird was tangled up
with loads of fishing wrap tied and wrapped around it's feet. It had been tangled for a while, and had caught the line in the tree and was hanging upside down. ( comments)
Our Mexican-Lithuanian restaurant,
you know, like they have. [photo Alison Scholtz] ( comments)
Calle visits,
happily. [photo Alison Scholtz] ( comments)

Fire Safety!
I love how the video turns out, but the camp videographer at Herrang finds out that we are also doing her job, but for free, and she freaks out and the camp cancels their plans for us to do videos. Another Herrang moment. [Video, 86M] ( comments)
But I did end up on stage
to explain Mission Impossible, and we were given a mission [photo Tamara] ( comments)

(wish I had a photo of the routine, it was actually quite fun.. anyone??) [photo Tamara] ( comments)
Friday party theme:
Viva Las Vegas! ( comments)
The pole that Mission Impossible builds
( comments)
Since Calle wasn't around,
and Week 1 party was Vegas, we needed an Elvis to marry people for Las Vegas night. ( comments)
I didn't know my hair could do that.
( comments)
Ladies and Gentlemen..
The King! ( comments)
Wow.

Week 3 party, Haunted House.
Everyone's a zombie, so I run around as one of the last humans, while protecting the lovely Ane-Zombie ( comments)
Mission: stage a car accident
for the Haunted House. So I jack one of the camp cars ("Krang"),.. ( comments)
And with some fake glass,
some dummies, and a smoke machine, the effect is astounding, with some of the Herrang drivers asking what we've done to poor Krang! ( comments)
The car wreck.
( comments)
Post apocalyptic wreckage
( comments)
The Cat's Corner SF crew
came out in great numbers. ( comments)

Mission: Help make ..volunteer shirt fit.
( comments)
Mission accomplished.
Actually this was done week 1 or 2, but was used as an example in a Mission listing I did during a week 4 meeting to introduce Mission Impossible and in which we did (with Lloyd) a 5-count swing routine that evidently looked great, but I have no footage of, because that's the Herrang way. [script] ( comments)
Another great dominion game final deck
(taking advantage of teaching new players, I suppose) ( comments)
And again..
( comments)
Mission Impossible tattoo!
Identifying me as a secret agent. Perhaps that's not a good way to go undercover. ( comments)
And of course,
we run a Hooters. ( comments)
The Hooters meeting video
done as a parody of the Herrang Film Festival meeting video which we saw every single week that looked exactly like this ("Forget Cannes"...) (and which I incidentally won the first week by resubmitting the Herrang Blues Educational video - the only entry) ( comments)
Hooters!

Smushas!
[photo Victor Dods] ( comments)
And then the week 5
theme is "Slumber Party" - and they have me play the dad. I do some improv acts with Cat (storytelling, the "birds and the bees",..) that ends up being superfun - I wish I had a recording of them. [photo Victor Dods] ( comments)

The beginnings of the dock
that I am building for the boats, later torn down by a resident in Herrang who is a control freak ( comments)
The floating dance floor is finished!
(with workers to help put it in storage) ( comments)
Loading it into the truck.
The next year I get in trouble for "using all the week 6 workers to move the floor". Interesting. ( comments)
