Dream Jobs

What job would you do if money, connections and skill set were no obstacle? I have often wondered about this. I have done personality tests over the years, and they all seem to point me in a creative direction. So the jobs I would pick that would be very cool to have are:

Concert Creative Director
As fans of this blog know, I am a big music fan. I have seen some amazing shows in my years of sitting in the Cheap Seats. All of the different stage sets, with moving platforms, all the costumes, dancers and choreography. Add in the lighting, smoke and strobe effects, plus large video screens too. It would be awesome to put something like that together.

Fashion Designer
I have learned that my creativity is not limited to one area. I have never tried to design clothes, but it looks like it would be fun. I love watching “Project Runway” and how ideas proceed to execution. I would probably specialize in men’s clothes. Fashionable and funky — not something you would see on the average guy — but something different.

I am also a big fan of the movies and TV. To have the ability to play people so far removed from yourself and be believable in those parts, is a skill. Back in the day, it would have been cool to be on “90210” — now I think I would be the gay best friend in some romantic comedy movie.

Wedding Planner
I have always been an organized person, in addition to be creative. I am the type of person who likes to plan things too — from vacations to parties. So imagine helping a happy couple bring their vision to life… I think it would be a fun job. Stressful for sure, but ultimately fulfilling.

To be able to dance like a pro would be an awesome job. To entertain, and move people with your body. I am sure it is very thrilling. It would cool to be a lead dancer on a big tour like Madonna’s. Or to choreograph a big routine in the next “Step Up” movie.

To shoot the Undergear catalog or some erotic coffee table book featuring barely dressed and fit male models, sounds like fun to me. Having the models make love to the camera for a few minutes, as I snap away.

So that’s my list… what would your dream job be? I would love to hear from you.

If I was on GLEE…

Now in it’s 5th season on FOX, GLEE has been a great musical/comedy show featuring the lives of a bunch of misfit teens/young adults performing in a school show choir and now moving into adulthood. It looks like the actors are having a fun time. So what if I (or at least a high school age version of me) was on the show? Read on to see what this episode would be like.GLEE Season 5

Episode Title: Coming Together

Songs performed:

Destination Unknown (Missing Persons)/It’s My Life (Talk Talk)

Some Guys Have All the Luck (Rod Stewart)

Have a Nice Day (Bon Jovi)

I Knew You Were Trouble (Taylor Swift)

Shy Boy (Bananarama)

You’re the One That I Want (John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John)

Basic premise of the episode: Shy, quiet, artsy student Daniel doesn’t know what he wants to do with his life. He likes to draw and make things. He is not athletic, and most people think he is a nerd. He thinks he might be gay. He’s going through his teen years without a clear indication of where he should be headed, plus trying to rebel against his conservative parents.

Mr. Schuster’s theme for the week is “Individuality.”

The opening number would be a mashup of Missing Person’s “Destination Unknown” and Talk Talk’s “It’s My Life.” This would be a great group number. Shots of people walking down the hall plus dealing with parents at home too.

Daniel is dating a guy, while Blaine is jealous of the fact that the new guy has a boyfriend. (I wrote this before he got back together w/ Kurt). This is his time to sing Rod Stewart’s “Some Guys Have All the Luck.” I could even imagine a big sequence featuring guys in the pool for some sort of water ballet.

A new transfer student named Rasheed comes to McKinley High. Here was a hunky black guy from the wrong side of the tracks. The students are less than welcoming to him. He sings his entrance song Bon Jovi’s “Have a Nice Day.” Asserting to all that he won’t let others get to him, he’s gonna live his life.

Daniel finds out that Rasheed is in his chemistry class. There is an instant connection. Taylor Swifts’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” signals that he knows that his relationship and his whole world is about to change.

Rasheed confides in Jake that he has feelings for Daniel. He sings’s Bananarama’s “Shy Boy” because he knows that he has to have Daniel in his life.

The final scene would be the classic Grease duet “You’re the One that I Want.” Daniel has gotten in touch with his true feelings for Rasheed, and confesses them while rocking a kilt and singing at the top of his lungs. Rasheed even learned a few dance moves for the occasion. The whole class is in on the number too.

So what songs and themes would you explore in your episode? I would love to hear from you.
