Anonymous said: (different anon, same thing): I second that 100%. Plus, for some reason it has really helped me to hear that being nervous around them is ok, and that they're so good at dealing with it. I feel a LOT more tempted to go say hi now. They'll be so tired by the time they come here (second-to-last show of the tour, I think), but maybe I'll get a poster signed or something. Thanks!
I think it’s the universal reaction to meeting your idol, and not something to be ashamed of. You imagine all these things you’ll say, how you’ll talk about the show artsily and have a real Conversation. And then you meet him and it’s like.. O.o it’s really you!!!! YOU EXIST!!! O.o
And I’m sure they will be a bit tired, but it’s nothing personal. They really gave the impression of appreciating the fans, and not taking for granted that everyone loves them. They’ve only had a fandom for about a year.
Go ahead and get your poster signed. Nothing to worry about. :)
In case you don’t follow cecilbaldwin-fan, I’m just plugging myself a bit here:
Anonymous said: I put some $$$ your way for the Edinburgh trip. I was thrilled enough with your pics and commentary PLUS you got to meet everyone BUT the gift of cock post was the cherry on top <3 thank you!!!
Awww, thank you so much!!! :* :* :*
I’m still kind of incredulous that people wanted to give me money just so I could go see them. You guys are the best!
I will be posting more about the show still, once I get some rest. Maybe try to think of something else if I can, and just let the frantic mood pass a bit.
All the best! :) :) .
I visited Edinburgh Fringe this week and saw Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, featuring Cecil and Meg. I got to meet them and Joseph after the show, and there are many pictures of the performances in that blog. I will blog about every play, but I’m not doing them all at once because I’m very very tired after the trip.
It was an amazing time, and if you’re in or around Edinburgh, you should definitely go see the show.
And it was amazing meeting Cecil, Meg and Joseph.

Anonymous said: Wow, thanks for the detailed vicarious Neos-experience! (thanking you here due to lack of a tumblr account.) I can't imagine they'd ever come here (people here don't speak that much English, I think), and they don't seem to upload videos anymore, so it's very much appreciated! Aww, poor Cecil in the bucket...what a "dayjob" to have : D.
No problem! I intend on writing something about every single play, so I’ve only just started. Stay tuned!
Some of the plays are really difficult to write about though, because part of the experience is being THERE, and a lot of it is very meta-theatrical so it’s done with lights and sounds and things like that. I kind of understand why they put up so few videos. They would simply not work on YouTube.
But I will do my best to describe the experience.
Cecil also got to hug a bucket (not the same one). Many buckets in that show!
