WELCOME TO THE CLC PRESENTS #7 PREMIERE
PHOTO GALLERY

June 9th, 2015

(Photographs by Jennifer Babineau)

HERE ARE A SELECTION OF THE ZILLION OR SO PHOTOS TAKEN AT THE PREMIERE WHICH WAS HELD IN THE CAFETERIA AND THEN THE LIBRARY AT AUBURN MIDDLE SCHOOL.  THEY ARE PRESENTED IN ORDER TO HELP GIVE A BETTER FEEL OF WHAT EXACTLY TRANSPIRED DURING THOSE ZANY TWO HOURS.  KEEP IN MIND NO REAL BRAINS WERE HURT IN THE FILMING OF THIS.


THESE WERE THE FIRST ARRIVALS IN THE CAFETERIA, FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, COLLEEN B., BRANDON C., EMMA O., KALEB P., ETHAN B., KACIE O., AUTUMN S., AND CALEB D.  WE WERE SOON JOINED BY JENNA AND CHARLOTTE, AND THEN BY KODY, TO BRING THE COUNT TO AN EVEN ELEVEN.  THAT'S ONE OF OUR CREATIVE COACHES, ANDREASKA JEFFCOATS TO THE FAR LEFT.


PIZZA ARRIVES AND MR. J. IS SHOWING THE INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS THEIR PAGES.  THE INFAMOUS BRAIN IS IN THE FOREGROUND.


THE GREEN GUMMY BRAIN.  THE LEGENDS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE COOLER READ:  DANGER CONTAINS HAZARDOUS ZOMBIFIED BIOLOGICAL MATERIALS DO NOT OPEN.  IT DIDN'T RAISE AS MANY EYEBROWS AS YOU MIGHT THINK SOMETHING MARKED DANGER: BIOHAZARD MIGHT.


BUTCHERING THE BRAIN.  NO, THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR EYES.  THOSE ARE GUMMY WORMS IN THE GRUESOME THING.  I THINK THAT'S CHARLOTTE OVERSEEING MY SKILL WITH A STAINLESS STEEL KNIFE.  I'M AFRAID THE PATIENT DIDN'T SURVIVE.


A VIVISECTIONIST'S DREAM.  THE BRAIN DIVIDED UP INTO INDIVIDUAL SERVINGS AND TOPPED WITH MONSTER PARTY FAVORS.  YUM!


UTENSILS WERE QUICKLY DISCARDED WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT BRAIN WAS FINGER FOOD.


FINISHING THE LAST REMNANTS OF BRAINS.  IN THE BACKGROUND IS ANDREASKA'S MOM, BONNIE, WHO WORKED ON SEVERAL OF THE EARLIER APL PRESENTS, LUCI MERIN, THE DIRECTOR OF THE AUBURN CLC, AND LIZ PREBLE, THE CHIEF COOK AND BOTTLE WASHER FOR THE CLC AT AMS.


THIS YEAR'S POSTER.  I'M NOT SURE THAT ANYONE NOTICED THE GUMMY BEAR MOTIF OF THE BACKGROUND.
AT LEAST THIS ONE SURVIVED THE WORKSHOP.


AFTER EVERYONE RETIRED TO THE LIBRARY, MS. MERIN GIVING A WARM UP SPEECH TO KICK OFF THE PREMIERE.  THAT'S KAREN HENDERSON IN THE BACKGROUND.  A BRIEF EXPLANATION ABOUT THE MOUSTACHES.  WE HAD A HANDFUL OF EXTRA UPPER LIP DECORATIONS LEFT OVER AFTER CHOOSING THE RIGHT ONE FOR OUR MASCOT, SHINBERT (SEEN A FEW PICTURES DOWN), AND THEY CIRCULATED THE GROUP.


ABOUT TO START THE SLIDESHOW, AND MR. J. TAKING OVER THE FLOOR.  I THINK THAT'S ETHAN'S YOUNGER BROTHER'S HEAD IN THE FOREGROUND.


AFTER THE SLIDESHOW, AND MR. J. HAS MIRACULOUSLY SWITCHED TO THE GIFT TABLE.


AS PROMISED, OUR MASCOT, SHINBERT P. GLOMPT.  HE IS A CHARACTER IN THIS YEAR'S BOOK THAT WAS CREATED BY THE WHOLE STAFF AND WAS ASSEMBLED FROM AN ACTUAL GUMMY BEAR STUFFIE BY MR. J AND JENNIFER B.  SEE THE GALLERY IN THE BOOK FOR HIS ORIGINAL DESIGN.  BEHIND HIM, YOU CAN JUST MAKE OUT HIS SPIRIT BOX.


HE'S SO DARNED CUTE, WE HAD TO INCLUDE HIS SIDE MUG SHOT.  THAT IS A FLEXIBLE TAIL AND THOSE ARE REAL 3-D GLASSES.


JENNA WAS THE FIRST WINNER UP AND CHOSE THE SPIRIT BOX (FILLED WITH SMARTIES), AND CHARLOTTE WAS UP NEXT.  SHE HAD A HARD TIME DECIDING, BUT ENDED UP CHOOSING THE ADVENTURE TIME CHARACTERS.


KALEB CHOSE THE ORIGINAL PIECE OF ART BY MR. J THAT WAS PART OF THE SPLASH PAGE; EMMA CHOSE THE DESK LAMP, AND AUTUMN CHOSE THE EREGON DVD.  CALEB WAS DESPERATELY WAITING FOR HIS TURN.


KORY, WHO HADN'T BEEN SURE IF HE WAS GOING TO ATTEND THE PREMIERE OR NOT, WALKED AWAY WITH THE BIG PRIZE, A LIGHT BOX BUILD MY MR. J HIMSELF.  THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW PICTURES WE MANAGED TO GET OF HIM.


EMMA WITH HER DESK LAMP AND BRENDAN WITH HIS STACK OF COMICS, INCLUDING A HOWARD THE DUCK.  NOW HE'LL UNDERSTAND THE ENDING OF THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY MOVIE.
 


KALEB WITH HIS ORIGINAL PIECE OF ART, COMPARING IT TO THE PAGE IN THE BOOK, AND KACIE WITH HER MINI-ART KIT AND THE PAD SHE TRADED OFF (IT CAME WITH A LARGE DRAWING PAD AND SHE WANTED ONLY THE SMALL ONE-AIN'T WE FLEXIBLE?).


COLLEEN WITH HER PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS MANUAL (WHICH CAME WITH A COPY OF THE FIFTH EDITION OF THE ART PROGRAM), AND FINALLY, OUT CAME THE BOOKS.  THEY WERE IN THE PLASTIC SLEEVES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF MR. J'S BOOKS.  HONEST.


EVERYBODY GETTING THE FIRST LOOK AT THE ACTUAL BOOK (ALTHOUGH WE'D JUST WATCHED IT ALL IN THE SLIDESHOW).  HAVING A HARD COPY OF THE THING IN YOUR HANDS IS ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT.


THE FINAL GIVEAWAY, JENNA WAS THE FASTEST ONE WITH HER HAND UP WITH THE RIGHT ANSWER AND WON OUR MASCOT.  HOPEFULLY SHE'S CAREFUL TO KEEP THE SPIRIT BOX AWAY FROM OLD SHINNY SO HE'S NOT TEMPTED TO GET INTO ANY MORE TROUBLE.

AS PROMISED, WE HAVE ANOTHER SMALL ASSORTMENT OF
CAUGHT IN THE HEADLIGHTS
OR, OUR LESS GLAMOROUS MOMENTS.

THAT'S ALL THE REGULAR PICTURES, BUT IF YOU WANT MORE, CHECK OUT THE BIG BONUS SECTION LINK
