I came to call, late on a Friday eve,
upon my mistress, that she might be woo’d.
I wore a musky fragrance to achieve
a certain type of amatory mood.
With romance high, we fell in fervid swoons;
we lustily embraced and fondly kiss’d.
Ere long, I found myself sans pantaloons—
and sans regard for our impassioned tryst.
The lady left, frustrated and annoyed,
lamenting my forgone attention span.
I’ve since discovered people will avoid
a negligent buffoon, more boy than man.
—To act my age I oft have been beseech’d,
but I cannot recall the age I’ve reached.

sophie & acting

I was going to do all this in the comments and then I realized I have so much more to say about it than I thought.

Because despite the first time we see her being of her completely butchering Shakespeare, Sophie Deveraux can act her little butt off. She’s a grifter, it is literally how she makes her living. She knows more about putting on character and becoming someone else than anybody and she does it flawlessly.

What she can’t do is put on someone else WHEN PEOPLE KNOW SHE’S DOING IT. Sophie doesn’t have a problem with acting, she has a problem with AUDIENCE. 

When she’s grifting, literally nobody knows what’s happening except herself. She’s so good at it, her marks often don’t even know they’ve been scammed. This is why she can maintain these personas across years and years of grifting people, because she doesn’t just pretend to be her characters, she becomes them. We see this time and again when she’s coaching Parker. She knows these people inside and out, and she internalizes them in a way that any director would weep to see.

But becoming someone else when another person can see and understands that this is you pretending, it reveals things about yourself. Its a kind of intimacy and vulnerability, because it opens you up to judgement and criticism. 

So, it speaks volumes about how much she trusts her crew that she can grift with them and not have a problem with it.

And it speaks LIBRARIES that by the end of the series, she is able to fully embrace acting in front of an audience, of letting people into her craft, of letting them see her doing her art. 

IN OTHER WORDS LEVERAGE WAS A FLAWLESSLY CRAFTED PIECE OF CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT THE LIKES OF WHICH WE MAY NEVER SEE AGAIN OKAY? OKAY.

Blackhawks' Kane on training camp

Chris Kuc posts video of a portion of his Kane’s media time after skate. Thoughts on Richards and Saad.

Gah, that video is shot so close to Kaner, it startled me.

Pumpkin is now actually finished, puh.
