The creator/director, talent extraordinaire of this group is no other than Terry-Lynne Storey who is no stranger to the stage.  She has won raves for her own stage performance in the "Vancouver Fringe Festival" for "The Hope Slide" plus a zillion other productions.  Amazing actor and teacher! 

"Age of Romance - Never Too Young To Date"

I loved this little outgoing girl.  Talked non-stop, a girl after my own heart.  Hahaha!  I was telling this other little actor that everyone gets nervous, even big stars, so she's in good company.  This little girl piped up "You know what I do when I get nervous?  I picture my bath filled with rubber duckies!  I'm serious RUBBER DUCKIES EVERYWHERE!! Then I'm not nervous at all!"  Hahaha!  Isn't that precious!  I have a huge audition today... I'm so gonna try it! :)

Love you little girl, who's name I forgot!  :)

Love Poem by Jill Scott w Mos Def - "Love Rain Down on Me"

Like spicy shimp curry on basmati rice close as brothers not lovers, this spoken word (song) poem makes my toes curl and my eyes roll back.  I heard the orignal version Jill wrote many moons ago but never heard this version with Mos Def.  It sent me over the edge!


[Jill Scott]
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me

Met him on a Thursday, sunny afternoon
Cumulus clouds, 84 degrees 
He was brown, deep 
Said he wanted to talk about my mission
Listen to my past lives. (Word?) 
Took me on long walks to places where butterflies rest easy
Talked about Moses and Mumia
Reparations, blue colors, memories of shell-topped Adidas
He was fresh, like summer peaches
Sweet on my mind like block parties and penny candy
Us was nice and warm, no jacket, no umbrella, just warm
At night we would watch the stars
And he would physically give me each and every one
I felt like cayenne pepper, red, hot, spicy
I felt dizzy and so near heaven and miles between my thighs
Better than love, we made delicious
He me had, had me he
He had me tongue tied
I could hear his rhythm in my thoughts
I was his sharp, his horn section
His boom and his bip
And he was my love

Love rain down on me, on me, down on me

The rain was fallin' and, and slowly and sweetly and stinging my eyes
And I could not see that he became my voodoo priest
And I was his faithful concubine
Wide open, wide, loose like bowels after collard greens
The mistake was made 
Love slipped from my lips
Dripped down my chin and landed in his lap
And us became new
Now me non-clarivoyant and in love
Made the coochie easy and the obvious invisible
The rain was falling
And I couldn't see the season changing
And the vibe slipping off it's axis
Our beautiful melody became wildly staccato 
(Repeat 1 in background)
The rain was falling and I could not see 
That I was to be plowed and sowed and fertilized 
And left to drown in his sunny afternoon
Cumulus clouds, 84 degrees, melody

Love rain down on me, on me, down on me
Love rain down on me, on me, down on me

[Mos Def]
I stretched my arms towards the sky like blades of tall grass
The sun beat between my shoulders like carnival drums
I sat still in hopes that it would help my wings grow 
So then I could really be fly 
And then she arrived
Like day break inside a railway tunnel
Like the new moon, like a diamond in the mines
Like high noon to a drunkard, sudden
She made my heart beat in a now-now time signature
Her skinny canvas for ultraviolet brushstrokes
She was the sun's painting 
She was a deep cognac color
Her eyes sparkled like lights along the new city
She lips pursed as if her breath was too sweet 
And full for her mouth to hold
I said, "You are the beautiful, distress of mathematics."
I said, "For you, I would peel open the clouds like new fruit
And give you lightning and thunder as a dowry
I would make the sky shed all of it's stars like rain
And I would clasp the constellations across your waist 
And I would make the heavens your cape 
And they would be pleased to cover you
They would be pleased to cover you
May I please, cover you, please"

"Love Rain Down on Me" - Jill Scott, featuring Mos Def
