Day of Victory: 1-4-13
It took at least ten full hours, and my body will be sore for days, but I,for the first time ever, circuited a lighting plot for a theater and the theater didn’t burn down. Of course, I won’t know for sure until I read the headlines on Playbill tomorrow morning, but I’m prettttty confident. Thanks, Theater Row, and good luck!
Evening of Victory: 9-14-12
Took a much needed Date Night With Myself tonight:
.went to a fantastic reading of a new Halley Feiffer play starring the always phenomenal Reed Birney.
.at said reading, listened to audience member/famed playwright John Guare verbally enjoy himself in a manner normally reserved for the privacy of your own home.
.went and walked the NYC High Line park for the first time (one word recap: stunning), and accidently almost elbowed Joel McHale because I was too busy looking at the scenery (sorry, Joel McHale!).
.walked around more evening streets in NYC, it was a nice walk.
.Sixpoint beer at home, applause to well run evening.
Picture of Victory 9/23/11: I just really like this picture. I’m glad I live in a world where it exists.
Evening of Victory: 9/19/11
Tonight I get to listen to a professional jazz quintet rock and roll for around two hours while I sit offstage and read Stephen King’s “Under the Dome,” all under the auspices of working. Fantastic! I should book these types of work times more often.
Moment of Victory 9/1/11
If you happened to be floating around NYC today, or were obsessively checking its weather status on the Weather Channel, you might have noticed it was a perfect day outside. As much as I hate natural light, all I wanted to do was throw frisbees at people (preferably unnoticed) and have a Dairy Queen Blizzard out in the sun. So good job, Nature, you finally got your act together this year for one whole day.
Free Song Download of Victory 8/24/11: Can anyone sing a song as brassily as Sutton Foster can? I imagine her drinking a fifth of whiskey the entire time she’s singing “You’re The Top” from Anything Goes, and you can to by going to this handily provided link! Hooray for music!
Baseball Game of Victory 8/20/11: Coney Island! Technically professional baseball! The best cheerleaders this side of Scores! Technically actual fireworks! All these bonuses, plus the chance to see several dozen boardwalk hobos all dressed up like Mystery giving dancing tips to whoever foolishly gets close enough (i.e. within a mile). Added triple bonus? Bacon cupcakes. Truly, a day for the memory books.
Moment of Victory 8/17/11: Learnin’ ‘bout termites. Did you know that termites will desiccate a single piece of wood until it looks like the hollow bones of a bird, in lieu of making a wide general swath across a wooded area? That was just one of the many first-hand termite facts I learned today. The other facts are sworn to secrecy through the secret Termite Lodge. …I’ve said too much.
Evening of Victory 8/16/11: While, yes, I did end up seeing the worst play ever tonight (it literally literally had almost more scene change time then play time), everything was made better by a heart stopping slice of Artichoke (TM) pizza and an evening serenade by a swarthy subway bagpiper. Hats off to you, Swarthy Subway Bagpiper.
