A PINTER PLAY
« on: April 30, 2007, 12:04:28 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were obliquely oblique, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're currently in a production of The Homecoming by Harold Pinter.

WIKIPEDIA reports:
Quote
On the somewhat more humorous side, Oui also published the essay "The 3 Most Important Things in Life" by Harlan Ellison in its November 1978 issue. The three things in question were sex, violence and labor relations, each illustrated by anecdotes from Ellison's life. The sex anecdote involved a less-than-successful assignation with a young woman; the violence anecdote was about witnessing a murder in a movie theatre during a screening of Save the Tiger; and the labor relations anecdote was Ellison's version of the story of his being fired after only one morning at The Walt Disney Company for jokingly suggesting making a pornographic cartoon using the primary Disney characters.

Topic of the Day:  one of my favorite artists is Doug Johnson, who created this masterpiece (this is just one side, though).  It's one of my absolute all-time favorites.  Because CDs are so small, this kind of detailed album art just doesn't happen anymore. :-\:



and this:




I also love the work of David Byrd, who created this...the poster art for the original Broadway production of Follies:



and "Son of Follies":



and this Jesus Christ Superstar poster:

Hi, DR George!

Yes, I certainly wish I could go to Seattle, too! I lived there for 3 years when I was a kid and absolutely loved it.

Attending 3 S&V outings is going to be my only vacation this year, unless I win the lottery. (But I guess you have to play first, to win!)

Thanks for posting that, DR Sigerson. I was a Harlan Ellision fan when I was in Jr. High and H.S.

I met him when I was in college...hung out with him at our student lunch place wihtout realizing who he was. (I did volunteer work with Cinematic Arts, the group which programmed the films on campus. By doing this, I could go to any movie they showed for free!) I had a stack of "Boy and His Dog" posters that I was distributing. He noticed the posters as we were sitting there, struck up a conversation and was unusually interested in my opinion of the film.

Then when I went to one of my film classes and he was the guest speaker, I was a bit embarrassed that I hadn't known who he was. He poked fun at things I'd said a few times during his talk, and afterwards said he hoped I didn't mind.  

He's an interesting guy.

Years later, I went to one of his book signings and saw him tear up a kid's copy of one of his books because he didn't like the publishers of that edition. The kid was young and didn't realize that H.E. was pulling a stunt. This was obviously one of the kid's favorite books and he looked embarrased that he had this "undesirable" edition and his feelings were hurt.

When I mentioned this to H.E. later, he said that people expected him to do outrageous things and he didn't want to disappoint them.

I became less of a fan after that...

dear DR Jose...... I read your comments about your "gut reaction" to hearing about the AGO.  You were pretty dead-on accurate !!  There is an awful lot of pretension, stuffiness, and lack of genuine musical understanding in that group (just my humble opinion.).
