--Let the movie awards season begin. "Slumdog Millionaire"--which IBJ A&E readers got a chance to see earlier this week (see your comments here)--was just named 2008's Best Film by the National Board of Review. See story here.

--Another potential cinematic award-winner is "Doubt." If you are interested in the original play--and missed it at the IRT last season--you can catch Cardinal Stage's upcoming production in Bloomington. Information here. I haven't seen any of Cardinal's work yet, but it's great to see efforts to bring professional regional theater to the area. 2009 also brings Cardinal's  production of "Having Our Say" (which, coincidentally, has also been seen at the IRT).

--It's been said that, in New York, critics can't stop a hit. They can, however, discover and help make one. But the number of critics there are dropping quickly. See story here. Will the lack of voices mean fewer discovers? And will that give even more power to the critic at the New York Times?

--For those looking forward to the 2009 Indianapolis International Film Festival, you'll have to look a little further forward. The fest will be held in the summer instead of spring. Which could mean films outdoor as well as indoor.

--Potentially fun news in the program of the American Cabaret Theatre: In May, ACT launches a late-night series with a Burlesque production.

--If you happen to stop by the Indiana Author Fair at the Indiana Historical Society this Saturday, please make it a point to say hello. I'll be there with about 90 other Indiana authors, including James Alexander Thom, Todd Tucker, Sam Stall and Phil Gulley.

Oh, and check out this week's Fox 59/IBJ A&E segment here.

  1. OK Larry, let's sign Lance, shore up the PG and let's get to the finals.

  2. A couple of issues need some clarification especially since my name was on the list. I am not sure how this information was obtained and from where. For me, the amount was incorrect to begin with and the money does not come to me personally. I am guessing that the names listed are the Principal Investigators (individual responsible for the conduct of the trail) for the different pharmaceutical trials and not the entity which receives the checks. In my case, I participate in Phase II and Phase III trials which are required for new drug development. Your article should differentiate the amount of money received for consulting, for speaking fees, and for conduct of a clinical trial for new drug development. The lumping of all of these categories may give the reader a false impression of physicians just trying to get rich. The Sunshine Law may help to differentiate these categories in the future. The public should be aware that the Clinical Trial Industry could be a real economic driver for Indiana since these revenues supports jobs and new job creation. Nationally, this account for 10-20 billion which our State is missing out on to a large degree. Yes, new drug and technology development has gotten most of the attention (e.g. CTSI, BioCrossroads, etc.) However, serious money is being left on the table by not participating in the clinical trials to get those new drugs and medical devices on the market!!!! I guess that this is not sexy enough for academia.

  3. The address given for the Goldfish Swim Club is the Ace Hardware, is it closing?

  4. Out of state management and ownership. If Kite controlled it, everything would be leased. Of course, due to the roundabout, there is limited access to the south side of 116th now also. Just have to go down to the light.

  5. Hey smudge, You're opposed to arresting people for minor crimes? Sounds great! We should only focus on murders and such, right? Let's stand around and wait until someone shoots someone before we act. Whatever we do, we should never question anyone, frisk anyone, or arrest anyone unless they are actively engaged in shooting or stabbing. Very sound!
