Finally following through on New Year’s Resolution #2: Get Out More

October 5, 2007 § 5 Comments

I just confirmed tickets for the Ron Sexsmith-Jill Barber concert on October 11. Three cheers! I believe this is my first real, indoor concert since I saw Raffi LIVE! in 1988. So. I’m excited.

Now to shake out the piggy bank and scrape together the funds for Garnet Rogers….

We went to the first movie of the season for the Lunenburg County Film Series— Waitress. It wasn’t at all what I expected. Quirky, of course, but some of the performances were perfect— the multi-dimensional abusive husband, for instance, and the asshole manager.

Last year we saw the episode of Law & Order based on the director’s murder, and I thought it was one of the most far-fetched L&Os ever (a high benchmark), so I was shocked to learn yesterday morning that Waitress’ writer-director-costar, Adrienne Shelly, was the inspiration. Ripped from the Headlines doesn’t seem so clear-eyed and take-no-prisoners in this light.

I took a blog survey yesterday and it just kept going and going, so naturally (naturally!) I decided to it it to the bitter end, where I was presented with this.

I wish I’d answered differently. I’d have loved to see ads for UFOs all over Federated Media.
