For me, the weekend included quality time zipping through Walt Disney World's revamped Test Track ride, exploring the 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Little Mermaid' areas of New Fantasyland, and hanging out with the likes of Pluto, Donald and Mickey. 

In between, I read and screened some films in preperation for upcoming articles (looking forward to telling you about "Les Miserables").

And you? What did you see, hear or otherwise do? Was it a Dance Kaleidoscope weekend? "Yuletide Celebration" with the ISO? Check in with Amahl and his night visitors at the Indianapolis Opera? Catch a concert or a movie?

Whatever you did on the A&E front, fill us in here.

Your thoughs?

  • $3Bill Comedy
    I haven't laughed so hard in a long time! If you get a chance, snap up tickets for $3Bill's "The Fancy Schmancy Razzle Dazzle Hoity Toity Black Tie (optional) Christmas Affair Show!" The Pulp Fiction inspired Santa scene & the Elf on a Shelf parody are worth the $15 alone! It's easily the funniest Christmas show around!
  • Amahl
    Caught Amahl and the Night Visitors at Indy Opera this weekend. It was a beautifully done show - way better than the typical church productions - and the kids LOVED it, even more than hanging with Santa in the lobby!
  • looking forward
    While I didn't do anything in Indy, I can not wait to see the $3bill show next weekend. This cast is a team of experienced, multi-talented actors/comedians, with keen dynamic timing, and laugh your a#@ off material.
  • Holiday Gift
    My son and I attended "Rejoice," Butler's annual musical gift to the community, at Closed Hall. This year's was the best show yet, with the ethereal performance of "Rejoice" the highlight of the evening. Thanks to Butler for the present.

  1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
