I wish I had the urge to write more... We set some kind of record for food stamps last month. Probably shouldn't be excited about that... Today was so hectic I didn't even finish my lunch before going home for the day. It may be time to re-install summer stock meal rules... The school is tearing down some buildings to make room for a park space, so if the cut, the mall, Flagstaff, and the rest of Schenley are too crowded there will be another option... Comcast ran an ad last night that almost made me think about switching my internet. Didn't think that was possible... Not sure a minaret ban will have the desired effect... There must be a brace my dad could use that would make him so much less the Dark Lord of Sith... I don't care about Charlie Weis or about Tiger's crash, please newspeople, find some real news... A break that includes two hours of driving each day of the break isn't much of a break - just sayin... Watching 'Hoarders' is a sure fire way to get motivated to empty the litter box... I am getting the feeling there's someone in some campus office just making up new rules to make my life more difficult... I wouldn't have thought it possible, but apparently there's a car on the market that gets worse mileage than mine... I know what the web site says, but I just don't believe someone signed for a package at work at 4:43am... This was the first semester since I started it that we wound up with a newsquiz in each week of the semester... I don't understand why they didn't just keep handing off the ball. It seemed to be working... Is it possible that a ten year old reference from an ex would be any kind of reliable way to land a gig? I didn't think so either... Looks like the next break is going to be one of the dreaded two-destination breaks... Talking about crew today made me appreciate how much better things are now than they were ten years ago - although the constant searching for overhires is going to be the end of me... I can't decide if I am finished buying gifts or if I have barely started... We're going to put off the 'unveiling' of my Mom's stone until the spring. She was never a fan of cold weather... Tomorrow I have a no-agenda meeting. I dislike no agenda meetings... I think the 'battle eggnog' ICA was maybe a little jump-the-sharky - but that ice-smoker was pretty neat... Listened to a lot of that '$20 a Gallon' book in the car over the trip. It was better than static on the radio... Didn't buy anything on 'Black Friday' or on 'Cyber Monday' - take that marketing experts...

A Hilton Garden does not really mean there's a garden - and it isn't so much a Hilton... Blowing off my "Weekly Newspage Mailer" this week for a double issue next week... "The Road" got a good review, but I think I will skip it... Gonna see my Dad tomorrow, as long as all the arrangements work out. Fingers crossed... I don't think it's off limits for a small town to legislate a "no chains" law for downtown businesses... Really sucks to sit in traffic for a while, hear on the radio there's a wreck up ahead, and then not see anything at all when you get there... Can't seem to figure out if a really redundant book is worse as a book or an audiobook... Polanski made bail. I thought that was the problem last time... Got to get my holiday shopping list together... The hotel internet is much less droppy tonight - prolly just jinxed it... After due consideration I think I could pretty much do without snow from now on... Where would one look for a gig in China? I mean, besides in China... As bad as the milage in my truck is, it appears to be better than a V8, all-wheel drive SUV... With the help of three graduate assistants, I finally finished off a project this week that had been hanging around since July. Better late than never... I went to a Target today, in menswear they had something that looked like a squadron of shopping carts carrying 40" flat screen TVs... Did you see the wedge totally explode when it hit the barrier? I wanna be a MythBuster... Got to get the Frosh together next week. Better not forget... Good to hear Big Ben will play Sunday. I hope it wasn't a close decision... Alright, on to Thanksgiving...

Worth a Look

Here are some of the posts from the last week of the Greenpage that might be worth a look:

NEA chairman Rocco Landesman visits Peoria "Rocco Landesman, the guy who was willing to bet that theater in Peoria wasn't as good as theater at the Goodman or Steppenwolf in Chicago, had his chance Friday to see 'Rent' at Eastlight Theatre and judge for himself."

Turning Our Backs on Anton Chekhov

The Moscow Times: "If you do what I do — write about Russian theater — there is no getting away from him. He is everywhere, he haunts your every move, your every thought, your every dream and nightmare.
He is Anton Chekhov."

BMI Requirement Causes Uproar

thelincolnianonline: "Lincoln University students will now have to endure a physical exam determining each student's BMI (body mass index) before they are permitted to graduate. An individual's BMI measures the amount of body fat.
Amid fierce criticisms, Lincoln University has recently installed a new requirement for its undergraduate students. If your BMI is over 30, you are required to take a physical education class."

Disney Legends recall Walt Disney and the 'Yes, if....' way of management

Theme Park Insider: "Walt Disney didn't create or build the theme park industry, contrary to what some folks have claimed over the years. What he did, veteran attraction designer Bob Rogers said, was to create and manage the team that built the theme park industry."

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

Pittsburgh City Paper: "When it comes to sheer snarkiness, you can't beat the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a script by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert)."

CMU production succeeds in 'Business'

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "When the criteria are talent, training and eagerness to entertain, there's no faulting the cast of the Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama's production of 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.'"

The Price of my Silence

The other night I was at a friend's house with some people. One of them had brought their kid, a fairly above average small boy. This outing is "game-night" and so we'd been playing this game. At the end, the kid helps clean up and becomes enamored with the sound of the air escaping the game box when he closed it. For the next hour or so he took every opportunity to say "box fart" to one of the adults. It was cute and cracking him up.

"Box fart"

In the moment I was trying to figure out what a fair price was to demand from his folks for not explaining to him that there was actually a word for that.

Different kind of box though.

Probably should be worth quite a bit, yes? I swear, its going to be a whole kind of adventure for me, having kids, when the time comes.

Before and After

Just bought a new pair of shoes. It took a second but I realized I'd picked out exactly the same shoes as the last time. So we have an opportunity for a "Before & After" pic. I think I bought the last pair in May, so this is every day for 6 or 7 months. Not sure if they ought to hold up better than this.

More Random Photos

So, another bunch of photos from the iPhone.

Last week they installed these things on the main drag in town:

Maybe this is a little clearer:

Kinda reminds me of that arch they built in downtown HP all those years ago. The perimeter has light bulbs along it (one that's already out). I wish they'd lit the signage. It's a little dark at night.

I did a side gig this past week. Mrs. TANBI found it for me. Here it is in the shop, pre-paint:

And then here it is in the space, carpet option one:

and then carpet option two:

Last there's a picture from my high school girlfriend's birthday party this past weekend:

Topic for another day: "Should you be friends at 40 with your high school girlfriend?" (She's not 40 by the way - and I don't think there's anything wrong with being friends).

Worth a Look

Here are some posts from the Greenpage last week that might be worth your time:

CMU may buy land for $7.5 million

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "Carnegie Mellon University is close to completing the purchase of a vacant gasoline service station at 4655 Forbes Ave., Oakland, a deal that will end a three-year dispute with a developer who planned to build a $35 million hotel on the site."

News: College Accountability, From the Left

Inside Higher Ed: "The Center for American Progress has impeccable credentials for the Obama era. In the same way that the right-leaning Heritage Foundation and American Enterprise Institute had the attention of the Bush administration, the Center for American Progress, headed by the former Clinton confidante John Podesta, is the think tank for the current White House. Time magazine called the center 'Obama's idea factory' after his election last year.
Which makes the center's new white paper on higher education all the more interesting -- and, perhaps, all the more concerning to some college leaders."

Standards of Education

Theatre Ideas: "I just returned from a quick trip to Illinois to see my stepson, Jake Olbert, perform in Illinois State University's production of Into the Woods. It was a very strong production, marred only by a small amount of directorial tinkering. After the performance Friday night, the show, which was an Associate entry in the American College Theatre Festival, received a 'response' from an ACTF rep from a school down the road."

Theater of War Uses Sophocles to Help Anguished Soldiers "The ancient Greeks had a shorthand for the mental anguish of war, for post-traumatic stress disorder and even for outbursts of fratricidal bloodshed like last week’s shootings at Fort Hood. They would invoke the names of mythological military heroes who battled inner demons: Achilles, consumed by the deaths of his men; Philoctetes, hollowed out from betrayals by fellow officers; Ajax, warped with so much rage that he wanted to kill his comrades."

A new language for a new American theater

The Denver Post: "As many theater companies retrench into the economic safety of familiar seasonal fare, Curious Theatre ventures forth into the thrill of the unknown.
While more than 30 area companies are readying safe, holiday-themed plays, Curious on Saturday opens 'Ameriville,' a form-bending, socially conscious new fusion of spoken-word poetry, hip-hop, jazz, comedy and politics.
'When theater loses the pulse of what its community really needs, that's when I think it has failed,' said Chay Yew, who is directing this piece written and performed by the nationally regarded Bronx-based ensemble Universes."

Hey Peg, it's not a "Shorties"... I got a ticket over the weekend and then two days later saw another person do exactly the same thing in the same place and not get a ticket - unfair... The good guys lost and I wasn't watching, so I guess it was my fault... I have to do a video interview for the school website this week, I wonder if I can convince them to get an actor to portray me instead... That Sarah Palin, she's special... I have once again fallen pretty far behind in my grading, I am sure no reader here is surprised... Although it is not yet Thanksgiving I will admit to thinking about holiday presents... Given a choice of assignments my seniors picked the absolutely hardest possible choice, I am not sure if that's confidence or insanity... I'm glad I returned the side job truck early, the client decided to keep the scenery... They went and canceled Dollhouse, yet another show where I don't understand why Fox doesn't just ship it off to FX... I was going to go to a seminar on using social media in teaching this week but something came up... The Mayor wants to tax tuition 1%, my students want to know why they should pay more than Pitt students just because our tuition is higher. They have a reasonable point actually... I culled some RSS feeds today, probably need to delete another dozen or so (but I added one too, oops)... I guess I ought to be thinking about the content for classes next semester - all SEVEN of them. Damn... I wonder if Windows Seven means its time to buy a new computer... I realized a couple of days ago that I bought the tools I've been coveting, I need a new target for obsession... I was the voice of doom today, I do a good doom... For all practical purposes there are two weeks left in the semester, that went quick... Personally I think that Belichick made the right call going for it...

Worth a Look

Here are some posts from the Greenpage the past week that could be worth your time:

Composers consider unionization

Variety: "The Society of Composers & Lyricists was scheduled to announce at its annual membership meeting Tuesday night that an 'informational meeting' about the possibility of affiliating with Teamsters Local 399 will be held Nov. 16 at the Pickwick Gardens Conference Center in Burbank, Calif."

Healthcare still a scare in Hollywood

Variety: "One anxiety runs deeper in Hollywood than awards season, weekend boxoffice, primetime ratings or even the recent studio shakeups: Retaining health care benefits."

Developer scraps Oakland hotel plan, sells property to CMU

Pittsburgh Business Times:: "Museum Park Hotel LP, a partnership led by developer Brinton Motheral which has been working to develop a new hotel on a former gas station in Pittsburgh's Oakland neighborhood, has decided to drop the plan and sell its property to its biggest neighbor and opponent of its project, Carnegie Mellon University."

More Showbiz Jobs Move To Louisiana "Pixel Magic today announced a new digital media studio at LITE in Lafayette. It could create 40 direct new jobs in 3 years. 'Pixel Magic is a great example of the kind of companies we hoped to position Louisiana to secure when we strengthened Louisiana's film production and digital interactive media tax credits during the last legislative session,' said Gov. Bobby Jindal."

Costume and practice: new suits for Riverdance duo

The IPKat: "Ireland's Sunday Business Post reports that Riverdance duo Moya Doherty and John McColgan are being sued by fashion designer Jen Kelly for using his designs without permission; Kelly is also reported to be seeking royalties on Riverdance's profits."

Worth a Look

Here are some posts from the Greenpage last week that might be worth a look:

'What show did you see?' How performances vary night to night "This just in: Theater shows change from night to night.
I was reminded of this obvious but oft-underappreciated fact in New York last week. In that town, critics see shows on three or four press nights. I saw the new 'Brighton Beach Memoirs' on the same night as the little group of New York critics I trust. When I read all the reviews a couple of days later, I found different emphases and varieties of tone, of course, but I had almost exactly the same view of the strengths and weaknesses of the show. I saw another Broadway show, 'Memphis,' on a different night and didn't feel that way at all."

Yale School of Drama Announces New Projection Design Concentration

Lighting&Sound America Online - News: "Yale School of Drama (James Bundy, dean; Victoria Nolan, deputy dean) will offer a new concentration in projection design under Wendall Harrington, within the design department (Ming Cho Lee, Stephen Strawbridge, co-chairs) beginning in the fall of 2010, the first such course of graduate theatre training in the United States."

CALL FOR DESIGNERS, ARTISTS & TECHNOLOGISTS: Let’s Create an Art & Tech Corridor at this Year’s 3 Rivers Arts Festival

Pittsburgh Art + Technology: "This year is a brand new year for the Three Rivers Arts Festival. Under new management, the folks at the festival have asked us for a proposal to infuse leading edge technology into the art show this June."

IATSE vs Bloomberg News’ (and others) bias.

Backstage at "A recent article in revealed that the top 5 IATSE stagehands at Carnegie Hall made an average of $430,543, with the Prop Master earning $530,044. These are high amounts to pretty much anyone. What is not mentioned in the original article [though I could swear it was at first] is the fact that these stagehands are working an average of 80 hours per week. All the pay over 40 hours each week would be paid at time-and-a-half, or double time. This does not include instances where meal or other break related penalties might have come into play, including during the first 8 hours of the day or 40 hours in the week."

Letting Your Grad Student Go

Post Gazette: "WHEN Sheila Natbony sent her daughter, Jessica, off to college, she took to calling her each morning before class, a wake-up exchange that eased her concerns that, yes, her daughter had made it home the night before. The routine seeped into graduate school. 'My mom would call to remind me of an early class, an early exam,' says Miss Natbony, now 22 and in her second year at Georgetown Law."

Card wrap-up, thanks for all the cards!

I think it's very much possible I have bought my last toolbox.

Jessica loves lobsters, so this was a natural gift for them:

Did you know that the Cavaliers are Pittsburgh's NBA team? That's what they kep saying at the pre-season game we saw at Pitt. Shaq and Lebron well excellent.

Wasn't me:

That thing, the one buried under the cut, it appears to be gone:

They've just about buttoned up the Pausch Bridge, with lighting by C&C.
