Looking Back on 2006

As a trip down memory lane (thanks to Brian Olsen for the idea) what follows are the first sentences of the first posts of each month of this year. A random assortment of snippets of thoughts. Interesting exercise or way to waste time at my desk? YOU decide!

“A gentlemen decided to berate two young people who did not give up their seat for an old woman.”

“Strange that during a season of real political crisis in this country, the supposedly liberal media is covering yet another Republican fiction ("John Kerry insults the troops").”

“Go see TRUTH, Mike Daisey's newest. Sounds cool.”

“Gone for the weekend then being sent to Baltimore most of next week for my day job.”

“Mixed feelings about this. I don't think I'm as disgusted as everyone else is.”

“Tonight is the final performance of The Most Wonderful Love!”

This is an important legal document.

“Wednesday was our first rehearsal and read-through of MWL, and it went swimmingly.”

“Recently reading Boo's blog... it occurred to me that it can be hard to make the distinction between theatre that speaks with raw honesty, and theatre that is artfully created and expressed.”

“I've been a bit remiss in discussing the "Rachel Corrie" issue.”

“Before I get to the union today, I'd like to send any readers over to Isaac Butler's passionate "gut response" to a NY Times piece about creative control issues between writers and directors. Here it is.”

“I tried this a while back, but didn't get much response. Never one to be cowed, I thought I'd try it again.”
...hm. What could that all have been about?
