Monday’s Guilty Pleasure: Girl, You’re a Jerk

darth-vader

So I’m playing a jerk in some play; more specifically, I’m Duke Frederick in Leiden English Fresher’s As You Like It. In high school productions I was always cast as a clown/fool, so playing a major antagonist is a massive change for me. I’m trying to memorize my lines over the break, and I’m just struck by how much he speaks in this big, bossy blocks of texts. There’s barely any dialogue with any of the other characters at all. He’s kind of a dic(k)tator.

In honor of Duke Frederick, here’s Jerk by Muscles.

    Thank your lucky stars you’re not playing a wuss; I’d play a jerk any day.

    By the bye, I’m totally in love with Muscles’ Sweaty… :)

    Ironically, your character is all about: PEACE LOVE ECSTASY UNITY RESPECT. True story :-)

    But then again, I wear irony pretty well… :)
