I'm fine. It's all fine. All is full of love. Sometimes the mountain needs to shake the men free. Let's talk about something else: on Monday I did a performance at the Los Angeles Theatre Center for the LA Weekly Awards, and who should I run smack into when I get offstage but Michael York and Ray Bradbury!?! That doesn't happen every day. "Good work! Great performance!" said they. "Uhh, er...WOW!" said I. Ray Bradbury, it seems, has become a fixture of the theatre scene here, producing a bunch of plays with his own money because he wants to see them done. Pretty cool. What I experienced on Monday night was a pulse in what I thought was a completely dead theatre scene. There actually IS a scene, which I have never detected. How thrilling it was to feel that people here actually CARE about the stage. Granted, they are still 200 % more physically beautiful and self-absorbed than actors in New York, but I guess that's just part of the gig of living here.
Mom's surgery got moved up to Tuesday. She happens to have a sister who can pull strings at the hospital and dance around the HMO gods. I'm planning on going out to ABQ the second this freakin play opens. I'll miss her operation but at least I can be with her post-surgery. I wonder how many pounds lighter she'll be without that Thing in her? I know, it's gross.
Last night...I saw Spirited Away, finally. I am a new person.
"Lets talk about something else"... Spirited Away. Yes!!! About time, sister! While your still on a Miyazaki high, see Castle in the Sky next. You and Davey won't regret it. As a matter of fact, you and Davey should of done the voice casting for the main boy 'n girl in this film. Why! See it! Still loving you...... Shawnja | 05.03.03 - 2:58 pm | #
Wow....Bradbury. Did you ever read "Dandelion Wine" by him? It's one of my favorite books. Oddly enough though, I don't care much for his other stuff.
Wish you guys could swing through Colorado some time when you're down ABQ way. You're always welcome if you're able. Lots and lots and lots of great places to gig here as well. *hint hint* William F. House | Homepage | 05.05.03 - 4:04 pm | #
