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.

    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!
