View Full Version : Who can we expect to see at semis and finals?
05-01-2004, 09:38 AM
i haven't had the chance to see that many HI's this year, but i do believe that some of the UTNIFers have a really good chance of kicking butt this year. (i.e. joel keelor-actor!)
05-01-2004, 01:18 PM
Joel Keelor i actually have not seen, with the exception of like a minute of it back at camp. I can't imagine its anything but the best though. He should go far.
Erica Dasher, assuming she qualifies, is going to kick ***. She's awesome.
As is Andrew Heald. Goosepumps is great. I havent seen it since july, and it was superb then.
Lisa Campbell should do very well too. Not the funniest piece, but far and away one of the cleanest performers i've ever seen. She's got awesome tech and characters.
I can name quite a few other people that would rape at nats, but i dont know whether they made it. Some i know didnt and its a crime, i.e. chelsea d'hemecourt.

Well, even if they do make it, I would not reccommend rape of any kind. Speaking from experience, I think I can safely say that raping anything in the room, or yourself, for that matter, leaves a bad impression on judges. Especially when it's not even your turn to perform.
05-02-2004, 09:33 AM
allow me to revise: i can name a few other people who would rape (figuratively) at nats. :wink:
actually, funny story. my debate team has begun using the term "kobe style" to refer to someone who is good. so now we'll see someone awesome perform and just look at each other and say "kobe style," indicating that they just raped the round.
05-03-2004, 02:57 PM
andy heald all the way baby.... i know u hear me out there andy, and if u dont... well then u wont know i said it lol. but yeah andys just completely amazing at HI. i honestly expect him to win. erica dasher did qualify, she took first in our district. kamelle mills is the other one going from our district. but yeah andy knows a lot of people believe in him and his HI. he got shafted at state, and so i told him he can make up for it at nats. and he will.
05-03-2004, 04:28 PM
Anthony Wee is also doing "ACTOR!" and its freakin HILLARIOUS.
The guy who qualled from belamante won CA states (which anthony went in duo) and he was, so i hear (never saw him), one of the funniest things ever. Look out for those 2.
05-03-2004, 06:34 PM
Unfortunatley for that guy everyone across the nation is doing actor
and the two guys I saw do it a Emory Nick Fox(Holy Ghost Prep) and some other guy that took 2nd were great and their both from the east coast and we all know west coast HI's tend to get a bad rap in the later rounds.
05-04-2004, 06:00 AM
Can someone tell me where Actor! canbe found- or who wrote it?
05-05-2004, 11:01 AM
Wow, no one mentioned Natalie Sintek yet... she'll be there.. hopefully Preston Boyd will be too from MN!
05-05-2004, 01:39 PM
I think Alex Weisman will definetly go far at Nats. His piece is HILARIOUS!!
( "Someday I'd like to travel to all the places my luggage has ever been")
He placed first from the Manatee District, and gave a spectacular performance in final round. My boy's going far! :D
05-07-2004, 01:43 PM
I have been coaching my little mini me and I think she is going to do really well. But i am worried that this is her first national competition (lil sophomore). She is doing Bring It On. So if you see her be nice, for she is just good old Kentucky gal.
05-28-2004, 01:34 AM
Hey peeps dis be andy
as for you mister preoccupied, yes i got your shout out and i thank you a billion and a half times for believing in me. i am going into nats looking to have as much fun as possible hanging out with some of the best friends i have ever made and hoping to do well of course, but mostly, reflecting on the best year i have had so far. a lot of peopel say that after high school, forensics interest fades and you dont believe in it as much. i do not see that happening to me. salt lake is going to be awesome and some of the best competition i will ever see.
05-28-2004, 05:30 PM
JUstin Stone will be competing in his last ever debate tournament in salt lake city utah ..and let me tell ya...he aint leaving without some hardware! I can promise u guyz that justins piece (ultimate autobio of g-d)will be cleaner and all around better than it has ever been performed- watch out HI world.
05-28-2004, 06:26 PM
It's Stephen Savage from Creekview (Killer Halloween). Whats up man?
Ok, thats out of the way. I nominate Andy for Semi's at LEAST in HI. I also vote for finals...but hey, what do I know? Also, I want to nominate....me. Because, hey, I can do that.
Um...and yeah. I want to see Natalie Sintek...bc Ruthless! is **** funny...so...there. (again) Oh, and update for the North Texas Longhorns duos...in...the...HI...forum...
Amanda Holcombe and Nick Steen cannot go! So...3rd place Ryan Castillo and Savanna Syrvrud (Addicts) WOULD BE GOING...had Ryan not been DQ'ed...SOOoOOooOO, Vichet Chum and Christin Seims are going instead...doing...Job's Wife. Bc Charissa Graniero and D'angelo Lacy cant go with it bc Charissa's got school. Oh, for ppl who dont know, Job's Wife WAS Charissa and D's duo. Now its not. Lookie Lookie.
05-28-2004, 09:39 PM
Can they pull off "Job's Wife" like everyone's favorite 3rd place winners at State?
I sure do hope so...
Because they rocked it as a Duet and I'd hate to see it not performed up to par.
And I also say that Double S (Stephen Savage - "Killer Halloween") and Andy Heald ("Goosebumps: Night Of The Living Dummy") will be going far this year at Nationals.
Stephen, you better represent or I will scold you for an hour, via iChat.
05-29-2004, 01:12 AM
hey savage what up g
nothing really oging on here, just ben working a lot at the best place in the world...
if your idea of the best place in the world intails stocking movies. (hollywoood video)
um, yeah. looking foward to some Nat'l's in 14 days!! w00t w00t
off to play counter stike. anyone else hear play? well you should
05-29-2004, 01:48 PM
Do you know why Ryan Castillo got dqed?
They did great @ TFA state in the round I was in with them and I hate to not see them go to nats!
05-29-2004, 03:13 PM
what event did ryan get dqed in?
no i do not know the answer but i know someone who may.
Gonna make a call if you want and I will post later tonight if can give me the event and piece.
05-29-2004, 06:10 PM
3rd place Ryan Castillo and Savanna Syrvrud (Addicts) WOULD BE GOING...had Ryan not been DQ'ed....
that's all I know.... so, I'm assumin Duo.
That would be cool if u could see what happened
05-30-2004, 01:19 AM
np kirk i will make a call tomorrow - and i am assuming these are texas kids, so I will be able to find out in the morning - i have to go into work tomorrow, but should post when i get back....if i remember to...lol
good night everyone!
05-30-2004, 01:34 PM
here's the deal. They are in my district and Savannah was just in Duo. RYAN, however, was in DI, OO, and DUO. Uh oh, looks like three events. They didnt catch it until midway through prelims of his OO round, so they couldnt stop right then. NFL rules (as least here) only allow for the entering of 2 events, so 3 was a DQ. End of that story. If i was Savannah, I would be so pissed at the irresponsible coach that didnt check 1st...just me though.
05-30-2004, 03:16 PM
heard same thing - it is an NFL rule all around that you could enter two events and advance in one that had to be previously signed off on.]
in entering threee - i would blame him and his coach for not paying attention.... although it really does suck that he had to be dqed - especially when in a team event
05-30-2004, 10:23 PM
Andy, I'm from FL, and all I can say is Ive heard great things about your piece man. As soon as I heard u were doin NotLD, I freaked. I hope to see the piece in finals. My vote for finalists areAndy Heald, Erica Dasher, and, no surprise as she won CFL Nats in DP, and got a standing ovation, Natalie Sintek.
05-31-2004, 12:34 PM
lol thanks dude.
its funny bc you wrote "i heard you were doing NotLD" and i raed it as Not LD as in Lincoln Douglas. I thought you were saying i should be doing LD and was going to explain that i sucked it up at LD :D well that was a boring story...
anyone know what place Gainer got in CFL finals? i havent heard yet
Ganer took 4th in OI and more CFL results can be found here: http://forensicsonline.net/board/viewtopic.php?t=2198
05-31-2004, 02:36 PM
Natalie Sintek is going to win NFLs in HI.
Correction: she already won. She doesnt need to bother going.
05-31-2004, 07:26 PM
what HI is she doing?
05-31-2004, 07:31 PM
nevermind florida friend jsut told me she is doing ruthless... i think i hit her earlier this year
05-31-2004, 07:41 PM
I saw her do HI "Ruthless" at Berkely, and although I found it amazing, I still thought The Onion and Live and In Color (Robert Bergin, Bellarmine, 1st in CA states; Latoya Johnson, Logan, 3rd in states) were funnier and even more technically amazing.
05-31-2004, 08:08 PM
Impossible. Natalie WILL win.
05-31-2004, 08:15 PM

thanks and have a nice day
06-02-2004, 11:50 PM
Nat. will win, because of her talent cause i love her so much, but also cause of what school she comes from, we all know it's the truth :?
06-03-2004, 01:31 AM
I understand what you are saying Princeton, and I do not know her to judge her chacter but believe you on her being cool. The thing is though, is that there are a number of very talented people that she has not faced off with, such as Erika Dasher of Houston Texas (The Onion) and Joel Keelor of Tenessee (Actor!) who by the way performs one of the most awesometacular HI's I have ever seen. I could see him winning based on his explicit character development and perfect technical ability. He and Erika are clean and hysterical. Ruthless has never won nationals and it has never made it to finals (to the best of my knowledge), and perhaps natalie could change that, but i'll tell you one thing: Even outside of these three very prestigous names, there are a lot of people who are going to make HI this summer the hardest HI tourny ever, and also, more importantly, the most fun to watch and compete in.
Man I cannot wait to fly to Salt Lake, mostly just to see everyone. I love you my UTNIF posse! shout outs to the TN, TX, Jersey, Cali, and wonderful Louisiana kids that I have not seen in WAY too long.
p.s. If you are staying in the Hilton let me see a **** YA.
