There's only one more weekend to catch "Fourplay" at Out North Contemporary Art House. This Thursday, Friday and Saturday are the last nights you can see it. If you're one of the few who haven't seen it yet, GO SEE IT!! NOW! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?! BUY YOUR TICKETS!!'s summer. This week we finally cracked 70 degrees. The leaves are coming in, bugs and birds are coming back, flowers are blooming, forest fires are burning and free furniture is once again showing up on the side of the road.

*heavy sigh*



Marley shuffled off her mortal coil around 4am Saturday morning. Just a month ago I was told the worst case scenario was two months. Cancer's a bitch that way.

I'd hoped Marley would go to 'Bama with me this fall. Instead, I buried her at Sheila Wyne's Pet Semetary a few hours before going onstage at Out North in "Just Like Julia" - part of Fourplay, running Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays until the end of the month. Yes, that was a shameless plug - but did you see our glowing review in the paper Saturday? The show must go on.

At least Marley was lucky enough to die in her sleep, really high, wrapped in the arms of the one she loved. We should all be so lucky.


As if I wasn't depressed enough...

I was watching the local evening news tonight on Channel 4 - KTBY. They don't cover sports. But that doesn't mean they give you extra news. Instead, you get celebrity news: like what Brad & Angelina are doing or what movies are opening this weekend. Tonight, for the first time in my life, I saw the local news air a movie trailer in its entirety AS NEWS!!!!!!!!!! I cannot possibly put enough exclamation points at the end of that sentence to properly convey my shock. A MOVIE TRAILER!!!!!!! AS NEWS!!!!!!!! (The only non-shocking part of this story is that KTBY is a Fox affiliate.)

We could heat Rancho Spenardo for five winters with the energy created by Edward R. Murrow spinning in his grave right now.


On the bright side, five crocuses have already bloomed in the front yard.

The play I'm in ("Just Like Julia") opens next Thursday, May 11, at Out North Contemporary Arthouse. Actually it's one of four one-act plays written by Schatzie Schaefers, collectively called "Fourplay." It runs May 11-14, 18-20. The 14th is a special Mother's Day matinee with an additional brunch catered by Noble's Diner.

You can buy your tickets online at Out North's secure website, or at the door the evening of the show. All the info can be found here.

If you're one of my broke-ass friends, email me and I'll give you a super-secret password that will save you $5 off your ticket price if you buy your tix online. If you're one of my well-to-do friends, I'd say "C'mon - it's just twenty fuckin' dollars.  What's wrong with you? Support local art, dammit!"


Not local art, but definitely a local piece of work...

I saw Wayne Anthony Ross driving down C Street today. I know that those are just his initials, but I'll be damned if the whole image isn't just...well...gross.  Especially through the broken windshield of my poor old fuel-efficient liberalmobile.



Steve has finally moved back to the ranch - as have the cats, Sara and Ado. Sara is newly tailess and is looking absolutely ridiculous with her shaved butt and stubby stump. It looks like a baboon's butt with a bee stinger.
