The 1973 horror comedy musical “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” is being brought to life again by GCC’s Forum Players Theatre Company.

Cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (2019)

This Fall the Forum Players Theatre Company will perform Richard O’Brien’s musical. Only a short 2 years later, Rocky Horror became one of the most iconic and influential cult classic films of our lifetimes. From being a “midnight movie” to a beacon of sexual liberation and exposure for the LGBTQ+ community, this musical is big and only getting bigger.

Everything about this performance is larger than life. This show plans to take full advantage of the high-tech sound and lightning equipment within the College’s state-of-the-art theatre. The cast is made up of students and GCC alumnus from all majors and representing four different countries. Talents from Brazil, Curaçao, Japan, and the Untied States, can all be found right here at GCC.

Brodie McPherson is the director of the show and the Theatre Technology instructor at GCC. “This show promises to be among the most memorable experiences not only for GCC’s Forum Players, but also for our audience and supporters. It really is not to be missed.” McPherson said.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show performed by GCC’s Forum Players Theatre Club, will be held Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 17,18 and 19, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. and once on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at 2 p.m. in the Stuart Steiner Theater. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at the box office.

When asked about this performance, Fu Kikuchi, who is cast to play Columbia, simply said, “I see you shiver with antici…………pation.”

5 things that you should bring along on your next trip to Wegmans

The kids

We all know that you love your kids but we also know that they can add to the stress of the day. Grocery shopping can already be a bit stressful on its own, so why add additional chaos? If you can do your shopping while the kids are at school, a friend’s house, or the grandparent’s house, you will feel much more relaxed.

Headphones

Picture this: you get out of work and you are having a rough day. After working for the past 8 hours, you are tired and ready to sit down at home for a glass of some wine. The last thing you want to do is deal with chaotic grocery stores. When you get to the grocery store you might find that popping some headphones in with some nice tunes might help you release stress and help you get in and out of the store in good time.

Coupon Organiser

We all love to cut out those coupons in the weekly paper. $1 off of a pint of ice-cream! Buy one get one free deals on soda pop? Score! We just trim all of those coupons out and bring them with us. Woah!! $3 off of a new can opener!? Wait woah. Why do I need a new can opener? I’ve already got a working one? Leave the spare coupons home so you don’t feel obligated to buy stuff that isn’t on the list. Instead bring a coupon organizer with just the coupons that you plan on using.

Small Snacks

Make sure that you are fed before you show up to the store. The last thing you need is to spend an extra $30 on a bunch of extra food. Eating before you leave for the store is a great way to stay on track when using a grocery list. If you haven’t eaten before leaving for the store, you should bring along some snacks. Small snacks like granola bars help satisfy your hunger while you shop.

All of those mismatched grocery bags

They’re super bulky and broken. They are so easy to forget at home. Instead you could buy a Produce Pouch. Much less bulk than the trunk full of bags and much more versatile. A produce pouch will not only help you take your food home but it will also help you keep your delicates safe as shop! Coming soon!

 

Using the Produce Pouch for Tailgating

The “Produce Pouch” is the hot new accessory for your everyday shopping needs. This small, mesh pouch is perfect for carrying fresh produce, and comes to life just in time for the Plastic Bag Ban in New York State. The “Produce Pouch” is light and easy to use. This makes it super easy to use for multiple occasions, including tailgating. The pouch is perfect for carrying items into those early morning cook outs at Orchard Park. It can hold snacks and drinks, and then be easily folded when empty for storage. Tailgating can be messy. The “Produce Pouch” has multiple uses. Not only can you carry snacks and things in, you could use it to collect your empties or stash your garbage. You could easily store extra clothes in the pouch as well. An extra hoodie for those colder fall days or even an extra pair of sneakers for those muddy walks from the parking lot. You know when your favorite beverage sinks to the bottom of the cooler and the ice is all melted, so you have to reach your hand into elbow deep water? Well not anymore! The you could use the produce pouch much like a fishing net and pull the drinks out at once, the excess water drains through the mesh. Now your hands are dry having to dip your hand into the cooler. These are just some of the ways you could use the Produce Pouch, other than its intended purpose.

5  ways camping and the produce pouch go together.

Camping is always a time of having fun outdoors, cookouts, and generally family gathering. But, with the ban on plastics in effect, and that said plastics are easily breakable, that on its own will be a challenge. Luckily, the produce pouch is the solution to the problem involving plastic bags. There are five, and perhaps more ways, that the produce pouch helps with camping.

 

  1. It is strong and sturdy. Unlike a typical plastic bag, the produce doesn’t break so easy under heavy strain, and actually can hold plenty of items with ease.

 

2. It can be placed anywhere. It isn’t limited to staying under the cart when going to the supermarket, and doesn’t have large numbers of creases in it that could trap food for months, years on end. It can even be placed in the basket of the shopping cart.

3. Its good for storage. Strong and sturdy, many places to put it  isn’t all. In fact, you can store necessities on the go like Makeup, medical supplies, pencils, paper, and many more.

4. it is ecologically friendly. Where plastic bags are treated as one-time usages, the Produce pouch can be used more than once and and doesn’t need to be disposed of. In fact, the produce pouch is made of recyclable materials as well, to help cut back on the pollution.

5. It can be washed. Where plastic bags cannot even be put through a good cleaning process, the Produce pouch can be washed by hand  like a dirty dish.

 

Above all else, the Produce pouch is the best step forward in the wake of environmental protection.

How to Macrame Your Way Through Winter

The more snow, the darker the sky, the sadder it is to stay inside. Don’t let this winter be like every other! Knowing how to do macrame is soothing, rewarding, and only as time consuming as you make it.

Becoming familiar with knots and patterns is a breeze with all of the resources available today. Within one day, you will be able to make a beautiful piece of your own design. Most people are able to learn about three knots a day as a beginner. The more you practice, the easier it is to learn and remember knots and patterns.

Personally, the first source I used was this E-book.

It contains beginner, moderate, and advanced patterns. It also explains all of the types of knots and patterns. It is good to have on hand as a manual.

Understanding how to tie a knot by using only a book takes a lot of time. YouTube videos are much easier, and faster to learn with.

Additionally, many websites offer free step by step guides to tying knots.

Matt M’s Junk Post

Hello, I’m Matt. I’m going to GCC for general studies, and I hope to maybe find a career somewhere within the trades field after I graduate from GCC. For the most part, I spend my spare time either scrolling through random videos on YouTube, playing golf, or playing music, whether it be the drums, piano, or ukulele.

Look! I can write in Bold, underlined, italicized, and strikethrough.
