--I'll be hosting two hours of call-in radio on WIBC Saturday evening from 8-10 p.m. There's no set subject matter, but I'm interested in sparking some conversation about when imagination crosses the line, opening the door to discussion about everything from "Where the Wild Things Are" and Balloon Boy to "Shipwrecked!" and movie biographies that stretch the truth. Hope you can join in the discussion.

-- In my weekly e-mail blast, I offered the wrong link to Storytelling Arts' presentation this weekend. Here's a repeat of the item with the correct connection:

Patrick Ball

Oct 25

Basile Theater at the Indiana History Center

Most storytelling events are just a person telling a story (not that that's a bad thing at all). But Patrick Ball, a Storytelling Arts favorite, is bringing his band, Medieval Beasts, along with him for this performance built on the legend of Tristan and Iseult. For details, click here.

Your thoughts?


  • Patrick Ball is WONDERFUL
    I am very much looking forward to the Patrick Ball storytelling event Sunday afternoon. I have heard him tell several times before and he is WONDERFUL. I don't know anything about the medieval music duo that will accompany him this time, but I trust the artistic judgment of Storytelling Arts of Indiana's executive director, Ellen Munds, so I'm looking forward to hearing them, too.

    Lou, this week, at TWO separate theatre events I gave my blog card to people and their reaction when they read it was, "Hope Baugh! I know that name! You're the one that writes on Lou Harry's blog so much! I love reading your comments!"

    I didn't know whether to feel complimented or dismayed, so I just laughed. And vowed privately to keep my head down a bit more on your blog.

    But tonight you're going to be on the radio, taking calls?! How fun!

    And by coincidence I will be at home tonight for the first Saturday evening in decades, it feels like. I am here on my computer at the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning because I have to work at my day job from 9-5 today. There are at least a half dozen shows I would like to see tonight but a) I am TIRED and b) I am now three reviews behind in my own blogging and c) there are stacks of clothes, dishes, books, bills, etc. around my home that need to be dealt with, so tonight I am taking the night off from seeing shows.

    What a delightful coincidence that you will on the radio tonight to keep me company. I just may become one of your callers, Lou. Mwa-ha-ha-a-a-h....

    (But whether I do or not, break a leg tonight - or whatever talk radio people say to each other!)

  1. How much you wanna bet, that 70% of the jobs created there (after construction) are minimum wage? And Harvey is correct, the vast majority of residents in this project will drive to their jobs, and to think otherwise, is like Harvey says, a pipe dream. Someone working at a restaurant or retail store will not be able to afford living there. What ever happened to people who wanted to build buildings, paying for it themselves? Not a fan of these tax deals.

  2. Uh, no GeorgeP. The project is supposed to bring on 1,000 jobs and those people along with the people that will be living in the new residential will be driving to their jobs. The walkable stuff is a pipe dream. Besides, walkable is defined as having all daily necessities within 1/2 mile. That's not the case here. Never will be.

  3. Brad is on to something there. The merger of the Formula E and IndyCar Series would give IndyCar access to International markets and Formula E access the Indianapolis 500, not to mention some other events in the USA. Maybe after 2016 but before the new Dallara is rolled out for 2018. This give IndyCar two more seasons to run the DW12 and Formula E to get charged up, pun intended. Then shock the racing world, pun intended, but making the 101st Indianapolis 500 a stellar, groundbreaking event: The first all-electric Indy 500, and use that platform to promote the future of the sport.

  4. No, HarveyF, the exact opposite. Greater density and closeness to retail and everyday necessities reduces traffic. When one has to drive miles for necessities, all those cars are on the roads for many miles. When reasonable density is built, low rise in this case, in the middle of a thriving retail area, one has to drive far less, actually reducing the number of cars on the road.

  5. The Indy Star announced today the appointment of a new Beverage Reporter! So instead of insightful reports on Indy pro sports and Indiana college teams, you now get to read stories about the 432nd new brewery open or some obscure Hoosier winery winning a county fair blue ribbon. Yep, that's the coverage we Star readers crave. Not.
