Celebrity Sighting: Upper East Side, Manhattan [25 Jul 2007|01:41am]

Today I saw a day laborer wearing the blue & orange Frenchwoods shirt.

I'm in NY... [05 Jan 2007|06:16pm]

So, I don't know if anyone on here actually knows who I am, because French Woods is a completely different place now, but if you do, I'm in the city for the next seven weeks working. If you want to catch up or grab a cup or something, let me know.

Spring Awakening [14 Dec 2006|02:09pm]

Hey, all. Haven't posted here in ages...haven't been to French Woods in even longer, but I was reading an article in the New York Times about Duncan Sheik's musical Spring Awakening, and I caught Remy Zaken's name. Pretty exciting stuff (if I am correct in recalling that she went to FWF)!

Hazing [24 Mar 2006|02:10pm]
Hello, we are two students at Rochester Institute of Technology currently engaged in an independent study project addressing the issue of hazing. The goal of this project is two-pronged - we wish to discover the prevalence of hazing in the state as well as get your opinion on what should be done about it, if anything.

Under the lj-cut is our survey, which asks a variety of questions about your personal experiences with hazing, and we would greatly appreciate it if you could take a minute or two from your time to fill it out really quickly. We even have questions at the beginning for those who have never experienced hazing but wish to share their opinion on the subject. Additionally, each question gives you the option to answer in more detail beyond the choices we have already provided. We encourage you to take advantage of this if you have more include in your answer.

Your responses to this survey are anonymous, so please do not put your name (or any information that would identify you) anywhere on this survey. You may quit the survey at any time and for any reason, or you may decline to answer any of the questions, but your responses to every question are important and we ask that you answer as many of the questions as you possibly can. You may post your answers however you like - under your user name, anonymously, or you may e-mail them to us at hazing.survey@gmail.com. All posts will be screened, so no one except you, us, and the community administrator will be able to see your responses.

Please inform us of any questions, concerns, or feedback you might have. Thank you in advance for your time.

Golden Age of Broadway [15 Mar 2006|03:04pm]

An amazing documentary on the Golden Age of Broadway will be broadcast tonight on PBS at 8pm.
It is informative and witty, and I highly reccomend the movie.

For more information on the movie- to read about it, and watch clips and the trailer, check out:

Frenchwoods Spottings? [07 Feb 2006|11:46pm]

Two frenchwoods alumns went to the movies yesterday and saw Transamerica.
Besides from being an amazing film, I noticed that one of the supporting characters looked like someone I remembered from Frenchwoods.

Her name, as listed on imdb.com, is Stella Maeve.

Did anyone else recognize a striking similarity?

What did you think? [05 Feb 2006|01:54pm]

So my friend and I were talking about the article with Zoob in it (http://newyorkmetro.com/news/features/15589/index2.html) and both kinda agreed that it seemed like pretty salacious/irresponsible journalism. I don't really see how a journalist could get so many kids to be so exhibitionist, at least without knowing them personally or writing things from a fly-on-the-wall perspective while actually obtaining the information anecdotally. And all of the "heteroflexible, ambisexual, pansexual" stuff was kind of lame, also. Who honestly thinks about what [insert non-conventional prefix here]-sexual they are?

Anyone read the latest New York Magazine? (The more prominent question in my mind being: does anyone actually pay attention to this community any more?)

If not, a former fw-ite, Nathan Zoob is in the Cover article!

Check it ouuuuttttttt.

Hey Guys.

Since this is a site that is predominantly hit by people who listen to musical theater, a lot of you wont even care. But since so many FrenchWoodies are eclectic in their music taste I thought you might be able to help me settle an argument.
"Who do you prefer My Chemical Romance or The Used???" (if either)
It doesn't matter if your opinion is based on credibility, popularity of just personal taste.

FRENCH WOODS ON NOGGIN! [16 Oct 2005|07:14pm]

Whoa... remember that show Scardey Camp that they were filming two years ago? Well, maybe I missed it on Nickelodeon, but I just turned onto Noggin, and there it was! The entire cast is made up of older frenchwoodites, and, of course, they filmed it at camp!

They called the lake "lake silverwood."

Yay show spamming [09 Oct 2005|07:45pm]

[ mood | lazy ]

My first show at FWF was "Bye Bye Birdie" in 1999. I was 11 years old. Now I'm 17, and I'm in the show again (same shitty part, too). If anybody would like to come see it, the performance is at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, November 26th, at the Ramaz Upper School (60 East 78th Street, NYC).

It's always fun to see old friends (especially old castmates). I hope to see some of you.

[27 Sep 2005|10:56pm]

So I'm watching this MTV show called The Reality Show, where contestants try to convince panelists that they should have their own reality show.

Well this kid Nick Roses wants to have a show with the premise being he's a teen with his own talent agency. Tonight he decided he needed a break, and was going to go to summer camp. There was a French Woods T-shirt BLATANTLY sitting in his suitcase.

Anybody know this kid? He said on the show that he was given an office at the summer camp he went to. I can only assume he went to FWF.

By the way for those of you that don't know me, I'm Zach Linder, and I rawk.
