Hey folks. A few things.
1. I'm starting a new day job on Tuesday which means I'm enjoying some rest and relaxation this week. Lots of playing Portal 2 (which is so awesome!) and buying clothes and catching up on Doctor Who. Less blogging, therefore.
2. Blue Coyote Theater Group's next production opens May 27th. It's the third Standards of Decency Project, this one subtitled "300 Vaginas Before Breakfast." The theme is the ubiquity of pornography in the age of the internet. Playwrights include myself, David Johnston, Mac Rogers, Adam Szymkowicz, Cheri Magid, Jacqueline Christy, David Foley and Jordan Seavey. I fine looking bunch indeed. My contribution to this evening is a play called "The Metaphor." More details to come. Totally looking forward to it!
3. The next New Books In Theater podcast will arrive tonight or tomorrow. Have you followed it, liked it on Facebook, subscribed on iTunes, or whatever? Heard the last one with Martin Denton? If not, check it out here. If so, next one's coming soon!
4. Why is it that in an era of 24 hour news and blogs and constant information, Americans seem increasingly unclear on facts? Isn't that...really a bad thing? Just saying.
5. Just in case I wasn't entirely clear on this point, I made these all up. To be funny.
