Converse Freely

I went and saw The Dark Knight earlier today with the Hudnell sisters. So now you can all talk about it around me. That is all.

Fools Play’s Mariah Arts Finalé

Yesterday (Saturday) was the final show of Fools Play at the Mariah Arts School. And what a show it was! Not only were 6/7 of the Fools in attendance (Taisha had some sorta family thing pop up at the last minute and so couldn’t make it), but we also had three special guests:

  • Ed Gibbs the Red Fool of the New Fool Order!
  • Erik Melver, who performed with us about 9 years ago!
  • Joel Dale of Improsia and formerly a Fool!
  • John Griffin of Under the Mailbox Theater fame!

It was a free show, so it attracted a biggie audience, and it was a heckuva hoot. It was on the same day as Leah’s bridal shower, so she came bedecked in a sari and a veil. It was also the day of someone’s bachelorette party (we’re not sure who’s), so that was a strange coincidence.

I was very pleased at how well the show went, especially when you consider that there were an unprecedented 10 people on that li’l stage (though John was only in a couple of scenes; he co-hosted the night with Mike).

Towards the end of the night there was an exciting announcement. Look here:

We’ll see you then!

…because it might be your last chance for a while. See, Fools Play is leaving the Mariah Art School because, well, the owner of the Art School is basically batsh*t crazy and keeps on making nutzy accusations about what we do there without bothering to talk to us first. At any rate, we don’t want to be associated with her anymore, and the feeling is rather mutual.

We haven’t completely lined up a new theater yet, and though there are a couple of tenuous leads we’d greatly appreciate any leads you can throw our way.

So as is tradition, our last show at any venue is a FREE SHOW! So there is NO excuse not to come and hang out with us. Who knows when we’ll be performing again?

(The answer is probably: “Soon”)

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

(Hulk Smash)

It was okay, I guess. Y’know, one thing that Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk did was make me like Ang Lee’s Hulk a little bit more. At least Ang Lee’s Hulk had some depth to it. The Incredible Hulk is all surface gloss. But y’know what? I liked the way Hulk looked better, too. Just a warning: this entire review is pretty much gonna be comparing the two movies. You might want to read my old review of that movie before you continue. [Read my full review here]

I Need to Borrow

Does anybody have (or know of anyone who has) a string trimmer (also called a line trimmer, Weedeater, Weedwhacker, weed wacker, Weed Whip, weedy, whipper snipper, garden strimmer, or Trimmer) that I could possible borrow? My backyard is in bad need of of a string whacking. Let me know.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

(This is the way it’s done, kid)

I know a handful of people who say they like the Indiana Jones movies but didn’t like this one. I don’t understand that, because this movie feels exactly like the other Indiana Jones movies. If you liked those movies, then you’ll like this one (and if you didn’t like them, well, then I can’t talk to you anymore). I liked those other movies. I like this one just as much.
