Yes, it was another long weekend. And in addition to the New Year's music and comedy options, there were also films and a handful of theater offerings.

While I hibernated for New Year's Eve, I did make it out to see  "Debbie Does Dallas" at Theatre on the Square (more on that later).

What about you? What did you hear, see or otherwise experience this weekend?

Your thoughts?

  • Film Music
    I did not get to any live concerts this weekend, which is unusual. I did see Spielbergs War Horse, which has a most interesting score by John Williams. The music features the expected big orchestral sequences, and this really did add to the beauty of early parts of the film. The music does not interfere with the horror of WWI in the trenches, and I am tempted to see it again to listen carefully to see what the soundtrack does during those moments. I remembering whispering to my wife about a brief melody that sounded for all the world like something Aaron Copland would have written, but it was just a brief moment. The rest of the score really did a nice job of capturing early twentieth century English style, and was very much in tune with Elgar, Holst and especially Vaughan Williams. Good film and good music.
  • La Cage Aux Folles
    We took advantage of a last-minute discount from Broadway Across Chicago and made a day trip to Chicago to see La Cage Aux Folles before it moved on to its next destination.

    I am not a big fan of George Hamilton to begin with and his performance in La Cage was not very convincing. The real gem of the show was Chris Sieber. Sieber's emotional rendering of the "I am what I am" at the end of Act I was raw and moving.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
