For me, it was a whirlwind of a weekend, especially if you start with Thursday (OK, so I’m still a college student at heart).

I started with a road trip to Louisville to catch the national tour of “Avenue Q,” found time after a Friday evening event to catch a late show at the Indianapolis International Film Festival (who’d have thought that a program called “Dirty Shorts for Clean Minds” would have a documentary called “Why We Wax” as its highlight?), attended a performance of “Victor/Victoria” at the American Cabaret Theatre and witnessed some strong talent as a judge of Meals on Wheel’s karaoke benefit at the Music Mill on Sunday (congrats to winner Julie Inskeep).

Yet there was a lot that I missed. So please tell me if you made it to the Stutz open house, checked in with Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea and Jack DeJohnette at Clowes, joined Bernadette Peters with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra or otherwise enjoyed the arts in Indy.

I look forward to reading your thoughts.

And watch the blog later today for an announcement of the next IBJ Night at the Movies.
  • All weekend, I kept thinking about DT's comment here on 4/22 about his/her experience of Altar Boyz at the Phoenix Theatre. I went back to re-read it and found lots more from Lou to me! Thanks very much, Lou! I wrote some more there in response.

    DT, I want to add my encouragement to Brian Hartz: I hope you will give the Phoenix another chance. Without knowing you, I can't make really make recommendations, but if you usually like musicals, you may like the Phoenix' current show Black Gold. . It is not a musical, but it has a rhythmic, choreographed feeling to it, and it is very well done. It continues at the Phoenix through May 4. I.e. - one more weekend.

    I saw several shows this weekend, which I will eventually discuss on my blog. I didn't have time to read much, however, so I have no book reports this Monday.

    Lou, have a safe trip this week!

    Hope Baugh
  • I attended the Stutz open house on Friday. Had a great time and saw some great art! I didn't think it was as crowded as it has been in years past though.

    I finished E.M. Forster's A Room with a View. I was inspired to read it by watching Masterpiece Theater's version of it.

    Sunday I watched the movie, The Jane Austen Book Club. It was a decent movie. Not Oscar material, but enjoyable, especially if you love Austen as I do.

    That's it for me - I hope to see some movie from the film fest, but haven't figured out exactly which ones.

  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
