Women Soldiers of the Civil War, Part 3
It was really devastating for a lot of people. And we all really respected him for that. The whole production had to shut down until the end of the strike, and I feel like we ended up losing something like six or seven episodes that year. It ended up being a episode season. They were our lifeblood, and we wanted them to get whatever they wanted. Paul Feig director : I directed a few episodes every season.
My favorite thing is to make an audience really uncomfortable and make them laugh at the same time.

So I was super-bummed out. I just so completely saw it in my brain. You know, at a grocery store or something. We never knew that you could kind of transform a place like that. It was fun making it look the way that it would look when he was buying it. And so I always felt very connected to the condo, because we shot a lot of episodes in there. What does the bedroom look like? You try to kind of throw away as much as possible. There are just little touches, like the beer sign in the garage, and Michael having that hand-shaped chair. We talked about this idea that Michael buys a lot of things that he sees late at night on TV, so he has a Bowflex and he has a Soloflex.
He has an Ab Roller. He never uses any of them, but his garage is filled with that stuff. That was written in the script. The whole candle business was just so funny to us. He is such a brilliant director, and one of the things he knows how to do is get the best out of everybody. Michael was jealous of his youth and good looks from the second he laid eyes on him. Everyone but Michael, that is. The lyrics for the song were written by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, but for the music and voice they turned to New Pornographers guitarist Todd Fancey.
He wrote it clearly about Jan and how she made him a man, and it was a terrible song. He likes the song. He has no clue. Basically, we wanted it to sound good.
We had some relationships with some musicians, and some other people on the show did, and we sent out the lyrics to a bunch of different people. People we had actually heard of and bands we had heard of took the time to record it, kind of on spec, I think?

There were some metal versions. I was living in Vancouver. I just went downstairs to my other apartment — I had two at the time — and boom. It came really quick. I wrote it on acoustic guitar. I went into a studio in suburban Vancouver and recorded it. We ended up going with that one. I had almost completely forgotten about the song. I got a call on my cell from a production assistant on the show.
And we need it to be Tuesday. How am I going to do this?

This new one is too polished. For the first time anywhere, you can hear it right here. As soon as you walk into that set, you knew why it was funny and how it was going to keep getting funnier. I mean, we were excited every time we filmed in the parking lot. So the fact that we actually went on location was superduper-exciting.
It was like the kids got to go to Disneyland. You just wind up socializing a bit more, and those group scenes are the same way. They were fun bonding experiences, in a way. It was perfect for the episode, it really was. I kind of used that a lot and used the heat. It was just scalding hot, I remember. I mean, the place was air-conditioned, but it was hot outside. It was just scorching. So that just adds an extra layer of insulation. You can have air-conditioning hoses running in, but, you know, we do long takes.
So it was a little bit of an ordeal in that way. I remember the camera operators getting jammed in the tight halls. It was a very small living room, and we were all sort of wedged in on the sofa together and more people kept arriving. It was definitely a great foundation for this awkward comedy setting. I try to find out about their research and creation processes. Try to meet them.
But also I am very taken with contemporary juggling at the moment — a circus art so utterly different from my own — very intriguing! When I showed part of my research at a master class with Julia Christ last year, this was her suggestion — I was in defiance ever since, because I love this text so much, and it has been with me for so long.
At the moment I am picturing some kind of lecture performance. When I saw Extreme Symbiosis half a year ago, it was very much the approach of what I had been picturing for my piece. But well, I saw it now. So I have to go further. This kind of research works very well for me, in my context. I cannot take the time to research for six or so months and do nothing else although I would love to.
I need to earn money, since I fund all my productions myself. But this is just the practical reason. Part of the research process comes from my actual life as an aerialist in the German event and variete circuit, and also from my aerial teaching work. I know what a trapeze artist is, I live as a trapeze artist, I am a trapeze artist. But I still need to grasp it, reflect upon it and put it into language verbal, physical…. It is a very self centered and self reflective research.
Quite psychological and maybe very 90s. But apart from my other projects, I am really enjoying this process, and it helps me understand my art and myself being an artist. Skip to content.
Stefan explains to Tyler and Caroline that the bullets were specially carved, and that if he were a normal vampire instead of a hybrid, he would be dead. Tyler tells Stefan that the hunter who shot him was clearly looking for vampires, and that his gloves were soaked in vervain. Stefan scrutinizes the special bullets, intrigued by the etchings on them. When Stefan touches one of the bullets, it burns him, and Caroline speculates that the bullets might have been spelled by a witch. Stefan visits Bonnie to ask her about the bullets. When Bonnie answers the door, Stefan sees how despondent she looks and is immediately concerned.
He asks her to invite him in, and after she does he embraces her, comforting her as she cries. After relocating to the living room, Bonnie explains that watching the spirits torture her Grams was like she was dying all over again. Stefan tries to assuage her fears, suggesting that the witches might just be messing with Bonnie's head to teach her a lesson. Bonnie tells Stefan that she has been unable to perform magic without reliving the horror of watching her Grams be tortured.

Bonnie apologizes for the state she's in and for avoiding everyone, and asks what he needs help with. Stefan tries to back out of it, but Bonnie insists that he tell her what's wrong. Stefan then shows Bonnie the special bullets that he took out of Tyler and tells her that the bullets burn to the touch. He suggests that the bullets might just be steeped in vervain, but asks Bonnie if she has ever seen the writing on the bullets before.
She says that she hasn't, and that it is not magical writing. Stefan then tells Bonnie that he thinks they have a new vampire hunter in town. When Stefan arrives at the church for the memorial service, he sees Elena walking away from Damon, who is putting a blood bag into a satchel.
