A New Coat of Web-based Paint

Only this week did Blogger announce the BETA for customisable themes and I have jumped on that boat right away! The previous theme was one of the built-in themes at the time, but for someone with no coding skill whatsoever, that was pretty much the only option.

But now with news of the customisable themes, I think that this a good chance to try something new and really make this website original. I can't add the TCOC logo into the background yet so it's not 100% permanent, I may tweak the layout as the feature progresses, but for now, enjoy the slightly more original 'Julian's Movie List'

Bodens' Midsummer Night's Dream

If you follow me on Twitter, (Yeah, you can know a lot about me from my Twitter, perhaps I'm hinting at something there (It's TCOCJulian by the way)) that I have been involved in a production of Midsummer Night's Dream for Bodens Studios. I would have posted about this a LOT earlier, except I was waiting for the first behind the scenes episode to be released on YouTube and it's only just been uploaded. If you know the story of Midsummer Night's dream then you'll understand the scenes being improvised here, if not, then watch the video anyway, it's really quite funny Our Director (Anna Sternberg) has been really amazing to set up the rehearsal process like this. So, better late then never, try to look out for me and here it is, Bodens' 'Behind the Dream:

Time

First, let me start by saying happy Mother's Day to everyone out there!

Now to business. Things have been hard here at TCOC, very hard. I've had a spike in my GCSE work and on top of that, I've still got no team. I'm not really the sort of person to post a blog post just to tell people that I'm still alive, I prefer to wait until I actually have something to post about. But right now; I don't...

The point is that I am working on a new script, (I'm hoping for something slightly less story orientated and more zany!) and once the school work dies down for a bit I'll be able to finish it and use it to lure some of my acting friends...

So please, be patient, relax, It's not like there's nothing else to do on the internet. I can assure you that the videos are not a lie! (On a side note: Yes, I'm currently very excited about Portal 2 coming out near the end of this year!)
