For me, it was an out-of-town weekend with D.C. exploration of the Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, the bowels of the Capitol, and a production at Arena Stage that I'll write about soon.

I also worked in a few movie screenings in anticipation of the upcoming Indiana Film Journalists Association Awards voting (which often nearly comes to blows so I need to be prepared).

What about you?

Did you get the the Monument lighting? Catch a recent release at the movies? Visit the Tawara Yusaka show at the Indianapolis Museum of Art? (I hope to go Tuesday.)

How did you experience the arts over Thanksgiving weekend?

  • Vienna Boys
    Fine concert by the Vienna Boys Choir at the Palladium. They sang a really interesting set of pieces from several cultures and historical periods. My only complaint would be that the director/piano accompanist was over-extended by doing both roles, and the timing and piano playing suffered. The singing was very fine indeed.
  • The Divine Sister
    I caught the last night of "The Divine Sister" at Theater on the Square on Mass Ave, a parody of classic nun movies and musicals.

    It wasn't high art by any means. It was ridiculous, ribald and the cast was a riot! They had the audience roaring with laughter the entire time and I enjoyed myself thoroughly.

    I'm looking forward to seeing TOTS' (PG-13) production of Debbie Does Dallas when it opens.

  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!
