Some news notes from all over the A&E front:

--Brown County's Coachlight Musical Theatre is changing its name to The Palace Theatre of Brown County. Included in the lineup of entertainers will be Robert Shaw's Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash tribute shows (which I reviewed at another venue here).

--On March 22, Adam Lambert will release his CD/DVD "Glam Nation Live." Why am I telling you this? Because he recorded it at Clowes Memorial Hall. Take a look here.

--If you want to catch up on the Best Picture nominees prior to the Oscars on Feb. 27, take a look at AMC's Best Picture Showcase Feb. 19 and 26. This time, Indiana theaters are participating. See schedule and details here.

--And, finally, Michale Kaiser, President of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (who joined me in an on-stage discussion about the state of the arts last year at Butler University)says that  "The arts are in trouble because there is simply not enough excellent art being created." Full article here.  Is it that simple?

Your thoughts on any of the above?

  • Really?
    I would guess that what Michale really meant was:

    "The arts are in trouble because there is simply not enough excellent art being created by the right people."

  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. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm 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!
