This is a quickie to share some of my favorite YouTube videos: Videos I made myself . . . with CyberDirector or Windows Movie Maker.
This one was just so much fun! I try to attend the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Flea Market & Grand Auction. Last year, 2010, I found a fun table for an Off Broadway play titled, Tales From The Tunnel.
I end up winning tickets to the play. I was happy to learn Wilson Jermaine Heredia, he played ‘Angel’ in the Broadway show and movie, Rent! At the play, he gave me a huge hug!!! What a great guy. In March 2011, I saw Wilson again on Broadway, this time, in La Cage Aux Folles. It was so much fun to see him again, at the stage door, we were like old friends!
A Rocky Horror Picture Show fan club asked for a 30 to 60 second video about “What Rocky Horror Means To You”. I found I couldn’t get it to 60 and say all I wanted. So, I videotaped a lot more — finally made a short version — then used the footage for this.
It has been years since I put on ‘Frank N. Furter’ make-up, so I really don’t have enough of the right colors left. Still, I guess a decent job with what make-up I actually have. And my collection of Tim Curry collectibles.
When I first posted this, in 2007, it was clearer [as in video quality]. Hopefully, in storage, the original is still clear and I can re-make it with updates! Yes, I still want to portray ‘Elphaba’ in the Broadway musical, Wicked. Nevertheless, it’s 99% positive I will not in this lifetime. I am more suited now to the role of ‘Madame Morrible’. And I will play it proudly should the opportunity present itself!!!
I did, of course, portray my dream role at a Halloween party or two. The photo is from 2009 at the Manhattan Theatre Source Halloween gathering. And who knows, this year, I may done my green make-up again at a certain Halloween party.
Now, this production of a play is important to me. It was so exciting to see my friend (ex-boyfriend)’s story up on stage. It was moving and my reviews were fabulous. Even though, some facts were messed up in the final production — I want to make a true documentary on Fredy Adolfo Gonzalez De Leon as he still deals with homelessness, citizenship and now communicating with his son, Juan Miguel in Guatemala.
As I write this, Fredy lives in a shelter in the Bronx. Although, he enjoys it there. He awaits his status from our government on his citizenship. Nevertheless, he is unable to earn money or fend for himself. Sort of sad, really.
For now, I will close with another video about my work . . . and do another one of these soon, with more videos!

Hello everyone . . .
I’m not sure if you know or not. When you have a blog on word press, you can look at your dashboard and see how many people read your blog. And yesterday, when Kirstie Alley did well on Dancing With The Stars, I had the biggest number of views ever, over 4,000!
I hope you all took time to read more than just my post about Kirstie Alley — our twitter correspondence (AngelAura28), that’s my twitter account. Because, well, I am looking to build a fan base. I plan on writing several books in my future, and working on the Broadway stage, television and film. I’d love to have you all along on the ride. And if I ever get a gig on Dancing With The Stars!
My 2nd busiest day was a while back — and really was because of my facebook friendship with Dori Hartley. She was the 1st ‘Frank N. Furter’ impersonator during the late 70s/early 80s phenomenon of the midnight showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show; at the downtown Manhattan, NY “8th Street Playhouse”. She is published author on ParentDish and nearly 800 of her fans came here in search of my articles about her.
The other two, according to my dashboard, that leads people to my blog is “tarot cards” and searching for “love quotes for him”. At least, these four are the most frequently searched and found on my blog.
I’m an Intuitive (Psychic)/Medium as well. As I was learning how to guide my gifts, I did read tarot cards — and played with a couple of Ouija boards, runes & iChing. Technically, though, I do not need any of those oracles. I have always received “pictures” in my head — like a movie, really — and they seem to come out 85-98% true! I’m a Seer or have the gift of prophesy, apparently. Sometimes my dreams are extremely precognitive, too. And I’m clairaudient — which means, I can hear spirits, people’s higher selves, receive and give telepathy, etc., etc.
Yes, I love quotes, too. Thus, you will find quote here from me . . . and video’s . . . and stories (non-fiction, mostly) . . . and photos.
Thank you for reading . . . enjoy my other work, if you’d like! And please, feel free to leave your positive, encouraging and constructive comments. Leave the negative comments to facebook or twitter, and not to me!Love, Light & Laughter, Angela Theresa
Please help my friend, too . . .

Womanly Artist_Christine St. Pierre
I dropped Fredy off at the Manhattan Theatre Source. It is Dress/Tech of TestoGENIUS. I was excited for Fredy to meet the guys. When we arrived the rehearsal was on break. I saw Charles, sleeping. He said it was a rough day, so far. Mauricio had run off somewhere for lunch. I left Fredy to wait it out or play on the computer’s . . . and I went to my Christine’s “women only” graduation at the Hotel Pennsylvania.
Christine was in a program for empowering women, for a few weeks called Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts. This was the graduation day for the first part . . . and would be lots of fun!
When I returned to the theatre, the dress rehearsal was a bust; they guys exhausted and a bit angry. We all parted and went home.

Another Opening: My Show “Childless Father”
Opening night and as a tradition – I bought gifts for our guys:
Fredy and I framed a drawing he did for Mauricio. It was a drawing that Mauricio really enjoyed. And since Charles has been a trooper and trying to learn American Sign Language (and do a good job at it); I found some ASL flash cards at Barnes & Noble for him.

Reviews Coming In–”Childless Father” Is A Hit
To the tour business again, today – had a nice change of pace, though. I was given a “charter”, which was very cool. It’s where a group books a tour for three hours or so, and you get to drive around with them. It was my first one and it was great!
I advertised my show all over my Weight Watchers blog – one of the members actually knows Mauricio! Small world, really, huh?
Of course, went to the theatre this evening for the show. Reviews are great, people telling me how moved they are by the piece. Pretty cool. I need to give you a taste of it in video. It’s on it’s way, actually.

Interpreting & Matchmaking
Mauricio asks me to interpret (in American Sign Language). He has deaf friends visiting and despite my protestations; he feels I can do it.
Admittedly, one of the plays is sort of fun with all the lines about well, sexual intercourse as the sign for the is easy! LOL!
My good friend (hearing), Mozz Mendez, is interested in one of Mauricio’s friends! It’s sweet.

Closing Night of “Childless Father”
In between shows Mauricio and I really connected. We had a great conversation. He really is like a little brother to me.
Being closing night, I was sad it was over, I did really connect with my actors and will miss the whole experience.
Day One–Hundred Eleven (111): Saturday, June 19th, 2010
The Hindu faith is rooted in ancient Vedic philosophy with its inherent ideas of karmic law or the law of retribution–what you sow, you reap; also, what you send out comes back. These ideas dovetail into the Law of Attraction because what you think about most is what you draw into your life experience. Throughout an average day in your life, are you thinking lovingly of the welfare of others or falling into a pattern of criticizing others for everything that makes you unhappy and stressed out? According to the tenets of Hinduism, your thoughts are as powerful as a spoken word. Words, like your actions, are creating your karma and when the elements are ripe for those words and actions to bear fruit (whether good or bad), they will.
I went to Pennsylvania Station today to pick up Fredy. I knew he had to be part of the play about his life . . . this is very exciting.
Fredy had already bragged, via video phone, to his family in Guatemala that he’s about to be famous. As his story will be seen by . . . I would love to say millions, but at our little theatre, Manhattan Theatre Source . . . it will only be a few dozen! If we’re lucky, it could be over one hundred! 😉
I arrived early, so I thought, and somehow, Fredy still got past me and I met him at our pre-arranged spot. The step of the James A. Farley United States Post Office on 8th Avenue, just in front of Penn Station.
Because tomorrow is tech, at the theatre, for Fredy — I was looking forward to him meeting Mauricio and Charles. The plan is to leave Fredy at the theatre while I run off to the “women only” graduation of my friend Christine St. Pierre.
For a few weekends now, Christine has been attending a school called “Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts“. It’s very cool and is a program, apparently, helping women realize our true confidence, strength and that we are all Goddesses! Woo Hoo!
Thus, I am going to the graduation and celebrate womanhood with many other Goddesses!!!

107) The Law May Be Part of God’s Will
Eve ate the apple and offered some of it to her mate Adam. Some people feel strongly that only God creates and that humans desiring knowledge of universal law and attempting to call upon the Universe to help them manifest or create their lives anew is putting the Universe before God. For some deeply devout Christians, the idea of creating a spiritual or religious life is admirable and credit should be given to the Lord. Others might say that the Lord’s ways are mysterious and the Law of Attraction may be a divine mechanism to give people what they want, including drawing spiritually inspired souls closer to Him.
Right after the usual day of tours . . . I went over to Manhattan Theatre Source to take photographs for TestoGENIUS. This time for other casts besides mine.
Jenny Green, the general manager at MTS, is very good about utilizing my photography skills; at least, she has been asking, for different projects.
The two casts there today were Mike Bordwell, himself and his monologue and the short play he’s directing, titled Big D. A funny little play about two brothers. Also, John Watts was there to rehearse his monologue about his journey from Swansea (Wales) to America (New York) when he was a boy.
Had to rush right home, though, after the photographs to rehearse with my boys, at my place! It was all fun for me — feeling like a real playwright and having “my play” rehearsed at my apartment. Just very cool.
Charles and Mauricio are so ready to go on, I feel . . . they are both nervous about lines and keeping up with one another. Charles has been learning American Sign Language during this time; yet, by no means is he fluent. And Mauricio is not always sure exactly where Charles is, in the script. Bridgette, and I agree, Mauricio really carries the show as he is the one representing Fredy.
All in all, though, it’s going great and I feel they’re ready to open! Woo Hoo!

104) Project A Powerful Self-Image
Augustine of Hippo was endowed with a great mind and oratory skills, which he used in his service as a bishop in the early Christian church. He successfully manifested a powerful image of himself as an intellectually vibrant and power orator. He made the most of his genetic endowment for intellectual inquiry and oratory and was able to attract the means to further develop them. When Augustine deeply desired to overcome the sensual things of life that kept him from having a more personal relationship with God, he translated his desire into conviction and action. When the Law began to fulfill his desire for that experience, he wrote an intensely personal account of his struggle to come to terms with his sensual nature and to know God.
To be honest, I’ve lost track of these days . . . and have some notes only.
We are wildly rehearsing at this time . . . getting ready to do Fredy’s life story on the stage. The more I work with Bridgette, Charles and Mauricio; the more fond I become of my boys and Bridgette.
Yes, I’m particularly fond of Mauricio . . . he’s playing Fredy, the real Fredy, so to speak because he is deaf. And get this, Mauricio, like Fredy, is a Taurus. Both of them, Fredy and Mauricio, think I’m completely crazy (LOL!) . . . and Mauricio is the same age Fredy was when we met, or close.
Of course, they are two different people in a lot of ways, as well. And I really do love both my actors. My fondness for Mauricio is different from my continuing love and fondness for Fredy. I love Fredy to pieces in a far different way. Charles and Mauricio I feel more like they’re my little brothers and I just want to protect them as a big sister would.
As for other male friends, such as Fredy . . . I did go see another production my good friend, Bill Kozy, was in at another theatre. It was a strange little play where he portrayed a guy on his first date — and Bill’s character was raised on a commune! LOL! It was hilarious, of course.
After Bill’s show, we caught up only a little. Bill is going through some things with his family and aging parents. Luckily, as time went by, everything improved. Nevertheless, Bill was unable to see my show Childless Father.

80) Faith And Trust Bear The Fruits of Providence
There are many stories in the Old Testament about the desire, intent, dreams, faith, and will of the ancient Israelites to lay out a course for their destiny as children of the Lord. The Israelites believed that Moses had been chosen by God to lead them from their enslavement by Pharaoh to land that the Lord had promised them. Strong and steady characterizes their belief and faith that their dream of having their own special place in the world was sanctioned by the Lord. They also believed they were the Lord’s chosen ones and that He remained ever near them. Their attitude that God would not abandon them kept their faith strong and that, in turn, kept fear and doubt in abeyance.
