Tabled

I’m proud to announce that our production of Messenger No. 4 has been nominated for 2 Austin Critics’ Table awards.

The first is for Production of a Comedy… which is amusing if you’ve traveled this road with us… we’ve tended to make things that weren’t terribly funny unless you happen to find dead Greeks hilarious.

The second nomination was for the David Mark Cohen award for New Play for Will and it couldn’t be more deserved.

So a song for your day:

DANCE BREAK

Delivering

I have a lot of ideas.
A lot. A lot a lot. Friends and loved ones learn to listen, or sort of surf the never-ending flow, for things I truly invest in… or spend a second thought on. In return I use them to see if any of the ideas bust through the eye glaze and fire a neuron in a brain not mine….

This is a pretty good system for a flawed brain. As long as the idea broadcaster and vetters are in the same communication plane… or awake.

Because sometimes? Sometimes you have an idea in the middle of the night and share it with the broader world before you vet those ideas with the folks you trust. In other news – I mentioned that I agreed to tattoo someone’s name on my leg right?

While doing a final adjustment of the Kickstarter rewards for Cambiare ProductionsMessenger No. 4 I was adding the personal touch items that I feel are key to small scale crowdsourcing… a headshot package from Will… cupcakes from Amanda and… well I don’t have a skill…. so HEY LOL I’LL SELL MY BODY. If it had been earlier in the day my wife my have had me think better of it…

It takes two to tango and my old friends the Vaillancourts stepped up… and tonight I made good.

and the newest permanent addition to my skin.
