Deaf-friendly films and a day of highschool in 50 minutes

1stJul. × ’08

It turns out I have deaf-friendly movies. A woman came to the screening but her date left before we started. Here are the movies I showed and how they’re deaf friendly

  1. Fable - shower fight movie with subtitles part of the How to Fight n Win action movie series
  2. Paper Grunts - stop motion drawing
  3. Writer - not deaf-friendly because there’s voice-over, but no annoying lips moving
  4. Volotrons - fingers from outerspace
  5. Thinker - after the show I was asked if the thinker was paralysed, sometimes thinking opposes action
  6. Clone Wars III - title cards

Then we went through a full day of HIGH SCHOOL in 50 minutes.

People scrounged at lunch.

The Mangina didn’t take off his pants.

One student removed all her clothes spontaneously (and according to schedule) for the nude model drawing class. I had brought a nude manikin shell form for someone to wear but she was too quick for me, no zippers. These are some drawings of the A and B- students respectively:

A………………………………………………………………….B-………………………………………………………….

Amy Uzzi and the Mangina liked the highschool ‘physical plant’ so much that they’ll be coming back to SLIP in August.

Everybody moved during PE. And if you broke a sweat you wiped it on the teacher’s palm, A+. I have video of some of this. Stay tuned.

My favorite lesson was the ‘active voice,’ taught in Language Arts. You try it. Say a sentence. Now communicate the same idea without using the verb “to be” or similar passive verbs.

‘I have lice,’ could be more active. ‘I attract lice.’ That’s better.

At Midnight a new wave of people showed up for Roger Ingraham’s vampire movie MOONSHINE.
