You-review-it Monday: Neil Gaiman anyone?

I was out of town the last few days getting a look at some terrific films (and hanging out with some terrific people) at the Nashville Film Festival. More on those--including the John Lennon early days feature "Nowhere Boy" from Miramax and the Russian musical "Hipsters"--soon.

So what did I miss? Did you see Neil Gaiman's library speech? Encore Vocal Arts' high-flying concert? The Weegee show at the IMA?

Your thoughts?

  • Comic geeks loved Gaiman
    My daughters and their dad are big fans and gave great reviews for Neil Gaiman's discussion. It was brief, only about an hour, and they were disappointed that he didn't sign any books, though.
  • Visit by Author/Composer
    Hey Lou,

    You missed a great Friday night performance of the Brain from Planet X at Buck Creek Players. The Author/Composer of Brain (among other things), Bruce Kimmel, was there and was very nice in meeting and talking with the cast a patrons.

    What a fun night!

    Build_It,

    Sorry I missed Brain and Bruce Kimmel's appearance. I have many, many of the recordings that Kimmel produced. He's done a lot in that regard for theater and cabaret musical, including creating the Lost in Boston series of recordings of songs cut from Broadway shows.
    Thanks for posting,
    Lou
  • Laughed out loud
    At the risk of revealing just how pedestrian I really am, I went to see Date Night. Comedies generally fall significantly short of my expectations, but this one made me laugh out loud. Tina Fey and Steve Carell are perfectly matched, and Mark Wahlberg and James Franco's characters are wonderfully cast. Sure, it's lightweight and anything but intellectual, but boy it was fun!
  • Neil Gaiman Fun for All Ages
    Dragged my 10-yr-old to see Neil Gaiman. If a 10-yr-old could sit and enjoy, you know it was entertaining. Mr. Gaiman was very funny and engaging for such a large audience. He actually read some of his short stories which was wonderful. Would have liked to have him answer more questions, but only because I am greedy. Agree with the other poster, a lot of comic book fans but I bet they also picked up some of his books at the lecture!
  • Acoustic Cafe
    A wonderful performance from Eliza Gilkyson at the Wheeler Aret Center...the last show of the season of Mark Butterfield's Acoustic Cafe series, that brings the best acoustic and folk performers in the country to Indy...Gilkyson is a wonderful lyricist, steeped in the folk traditions, and Guitarist Robbie McEntee, a former side man for Dan Fogelberg, accompanied her beautifully on electric guitar...woncerful show. Great series...IndyAcousticCafeSeries.com for info on upcoming shows...do yourself a favor..go!

  1. The Affordable Care Act is not the reason for the slow recovery and lack of high paying jobs for low skill workers. This is a trend that has been going since the early 80's. The recovery is real in the sense that GDP has been growing steadily at a rate of roughly 2.5% since the recession ended in late 2009 (newsflash, the stimulus worked) and the unemployment has been steadily dropping. The reason issue we are facing deals with a skills gap (not enough workers with the right credentials / experience) and wage stagnation due to corporate America being focused solely on maximizing profits for shareholders and not caring about the American middle class. Why should they? Multi-billion dollar mutlinational companies keep offshoring their profits in order to avoid paying taxes (which makes our deficit worse) they convince Americans to fight amongst themselves. If you want to create jobs and reduce the deficit, raise the minimum wage and change corporate tax laws. Of course, if you want to continue to belive that tax cuts for wealthy create jobs (which they don't) and allow corporations and the wealthy to continue to make you cover more and more of the costs of maintaining infrastructure, funding the military and other government services, then keep voting Republican. Hopefully someday you wake up and realize what's been going on since Reagan took office.

  2. Helloooooo, my name is Kate. I am so joyous to share this wonderful testimony about what Dr. Osoijiakhena, a great spell caster, did for me and my family. I wedded a year and 6 months ago, we were very happy during this whole period, i really love my husband so so much. I started noticing changes when he started coming home late at night, he stop paying attention to me, i later found out that he was having an affair with another lady, i dont know what she did to get to him but she really got a hold on him. He started spending weekends with her, and threaten for divorce. I was so heart broken and devastated, i spent many night thinking on how to get my husband back. A friend took it upon herself to to introduce me to one Dr. Osoijiakhena, a great spell caster, who once helped her with a spell that reunited her family and helped her husband secure a very prolific job. Though i had my doubts and never believed, but i decided to give it a try because i was helpless. I contacted Dr. Osoijiakhena, the Spell caster, to help me reunite my family by bringing back my husband from that other woman and break whatever hold she had on him. He only just told me that it's a minor issue, once i provide and do everything he will ask me to do, then i will have my family back again. I did everything he required. And he did it!!!!! My husband returned back to me and pleaded for forgiveness, and i also secured a well paid job in a big company, just as the great spell caster, Dr. Osoijiakhena said. I am so so happy to share my testimony on this wall. I am using this medium to tell every one that has same or similar problem to try the great Dr. Osoijiakhena through his mail: drosoijiakhenaspell@gmail.com......he is so real!!!!! He can also help you with: (1) IF YOU WANT YOUR EX GIRL/BOYFRIEND TO RETURN BACK TO YOU (2) IF YOU WANT YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE BACK (3) IF YOU WANT TO BE PROMOTED IN YOUR OFFICE (4) IF YOU WANT YOUR MAN OR WOMAN TO LOVE YOU (5) IF YOU WANT A CHILD (BARREN) (6) IF YOU WANT TO BE RICH/WEALTHY (7) IF YOU WANT YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE TO BE YOURS FOREVER (8) IF YOU'VE BEEN SCAMMED AND WANT YOUR MONEY BACK (9) IF YOU ARE HAVING DELAY IN GETTING MARRIED (10) IF YOU HAVE A COURT CASE AND WANT TO WIN (11) IF YOU'RE A DRUG ADDICT AND YOU WANT TO REALLY STOP (12) IF YOU CANNOT IMPREGNATE A WOMAN (STERILE) (13) ALL TYPES OF DISEASES I advise you to contact the great Dr. Osoijiakhena, the spiritualist for solutions via his email: drosoijiakhenaspell@gmail.com

  4. My spring chicken of a Mom is turning 75 years young. She is a big fan of Frankie and I think she would get a big kick out of the film. I wanted to take her to the Broadway play but am priced out. Thanks for your time and consideration. Oh yea, Wildwood! Joie

  5. I thought this company would go bankrupt in 2013/2014. I predicted that four years ago. I was wrong. It will take another couple of years, but they will get there.
