#WoollyBurns Pop Culture Diaries Finale Edition

Guys, Mr. Burns, a post-electric play closes this Sunday (boo!) If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet get them here!

For our last blog post, here is the fourth installment of our #WoollyBurns Pop Culture Diaries vlog series, thanks for following along! If you missed ’em, here’s Round 1, Round 2, and Round 3.

Without further ado:

Meet Nik: She’s just a happy person in general who likes lighthearted pop culture that makes her dance. Also, we think she might have a little crush on Johnny Depp. Not bad antidotes for the grim apocalypse, eh?

 

Bubble Bubble:

So this guy didn’t share his name, but we’re gonna nickname him Bubble Bubble. Let’s hope his friends last through the apocalypse with him ’cause they would create a whole new awesome level of Glee.

 

Nietzsche:

This philosopher got deep with us…real deep. He’s totally ready for the apocalypse.

 

Meet Johnny: If the world were to end tomorrow, Johnny might not survive ’cause he’s a big chicken. Seriously, we’re not kidding. He might turn into a chicken.

A Very Electric Connectivity Round-Up

Unfortunately, electricity could not be avoided in the creation of this blog post.

People check out the post-electric scene with our installation, A Post-Electric World: Viewpoints from Visual Artists

Check out how our Nostalgia Reference Board has done over the past few weeks!

People start to break off and find their own references besides the example!

It is too easy to loop any cultural reference back to The Simpsons.

Patrons think hard about how many connections/references have been made to Pygmalion.

A patron adds her thoughts to the board!

Patrons riff off of the example… not what we expected, but still totally cool.

Total. Reference. Explosion.

#WoollyBurns Pop Culture Diaries: Round 3

Happy Friday Mammoths! If you’ve been following us on our blog and social media, you’ll know that we’ve created a “vlog” series called “Pop Culture Diaries.” We asked Woolly staff and patrons what piece of pop culture they remember most and what they couldn’t live without if the world were to end—here’s the responses from Episode 1 and Episode 2.

For Round 3:

Meet Bob, he is the master of his domain and his favorite sitcom and yada yada yada…

 

Meet Christina, Christina’s not dumb. She knows what she would need to survive after the apocalypse. Yeah. YEAH-AH. Who wouldn’t want a little Jim Carrey to brighten the rest of your days?

 

Meet Jason, he could be the number 2 guy for Dunder Mifflin’s number 2 guy. If the world ends tomorrow, we’ll have a paper shrine to Dwight Schrute.

 

Meet John, his rhymes would make the apocalypse a little bit brighter. We could probably use some of his wisdom too.

#WoollyBurns Pop Culture Diaries: PWYC Style!

You might have seen last week the first of our #WoollyBurns “vlog” series Pop Culture Diaries. We asked Woolly staff and patrons what piece of pop culture they remember most and what they couldn’t live without.

Today’s videos come to you from the Pay-What-You-Can line for Mr. Burns, a post-electric play. Without further ado:

Meet Audrey: She’s equipped to outlive you during the apocalypse ’cause she’s got tips from the Tribal Council.

 

Meet Meghan: Her talents don’t include whistling, but if it came down to the wire, she would need to learn.

 

Meet Emily: See who her reality TV cooking hero is. He’s an Original with a lot of spice. ALLEZ CUISINE!

 

Meet Ryan: So he wouldn’t remember The Simpsons during the apocalypse, which we think is crazy talk. He is obsessed with another cartoon, mmkay. He does a pretty good impression though…we’ll give him that.

#WoollyBurns Pop Culture Diaries

For Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, Woolly has created a Vlog of Pop Culture Memories. We asked Woolly staff and patrons what piece of pop culture they remember most and what they couldn’t live without.

Here’s Melanie – Listen to her beautiful pipes as she recalls pop songs she loves. See if you can get away with having this catchy tune stuck in your head the rest of the day.

 

Here’s Timmy – Remember the days of young James Van Der Beek and puppy love in Capeside, Massachusetts…”I don’t wanna wait for our lives to be overrrr”

 

Cameron – see what piece of pop culture he connected with when he was just a wee mammoth.
