In the spirit of CreComm instructor Kenton Larsen (who I'll be seeing in less than a month — wow, summer flew by), I offer you seven new words/terms generated by the Winnipeg Fringe.
Show-blindness — inability to see the glaring faults of a show you are acting in
Samosoma — deep-fried, potato-stuffed coma
Star-sighted — inability of a Fringe-goer to look past star ratings
Reviewsal — when a patron informs a handbiller that star ratings don't matter (awesome!)
Cuetaclysm — the total derailing of a show by a technical/actor snafu
Thespensity — tendency for crowds to become emotionally volatile after seeing Fringe shows
Embuskassed — feeling when you pass a busker who's trying and failing to build an audience
Now, on with August!
