--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. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
