12--NEWS/PROP--Rolf and Jay have laid claim to TRIP TO THE MOON

Hi folks,

As it says, project taken.  All the projects I send out are first-come-first-serve.

And if you think you can come up with a version which is radically different than what Rolf and Jay will do, I actually don't mind duplicate projects.

But hopefully I'll be throwing out enough variety that you can find something else just as fun.

The are some more very short Lorca plays coming.

11--TEXT--Federico Garcia Lorca's TRIP TO THE MOON for two voices

Hi gang,

I found two different versions, one from book with translator listed and the other on the internet with no translator listed.  I figure that it is up to the performer/producer to select which script or perhaps to move back and forth between the two selecting the best lines for each number.

10--TEXT--Leonora Carrington's MY FLANNEL KNICKERS for 2 (maybe 3) voices

Hi,

This is the last Carrington for at least a few weeks.  I do intend to at least script AS WE RODE ALONG THE EDGE and possibly more.  With the four I've already selected, that does leave 14 other "tales" should you be interested in looking. 

My text is available for borrowing and there is also a copy in Central Library.  I type fast so if you would like another story scripted for your use on Theatrum just let me know.

Thanks,
love

9--TEXT--Leonora Carrington's MY MOTHER IS A COW for monologue

Hi,

Here's another, probably best read by a woman.

8--TEXT--Leonora Carrington's THE SKELETON'S HOLIDAY for monologue

Hi Gang,

First in a series of Carrington short stories on their way, taken from THE SEVENTH HORSE.  Her writing is lots of fun.  She was Max Ernst's lover in Paris until Max was "interned" and Leonora fled to Spain.  Would love to have been a fly on the wall when the two of them were together.

Mark Andres is with us tomorrow...

Please check out Art Focus tomorrow when Mark Andres will discuss his current work on show at Augen Desoto. The exhibition is called Painting in Time.

Busy Week

It was a busy week for sure.  Not only did I host the Bread and Roses show, featuring Della Rae of DonorsResource.org and Janna Mock-Lopez of Goodness Magazine, which was such a treat to pull together, but I also came back the next day to create Saturday's, An Evening of Afrotainment

I should probably take a step back as my week started on Sunday, March 8 at 11am until 7pm while in radio training with Marilynn.  She provided some good tips that I was able to apply in preparation and while on air...I love "this moment of silience was brought to you by ________" fill in the blank that I was able to use during the Friday night interviews.  When the conversation begins to flow like it did I start talking before I've completed the question in my head and I end up having a lapse or what some would call a senior moment, and I'm not a senior.  The other technique I picked up on was shortening my statements, yah right, that will take some time as I'm a bit verbose by nature.  This is one I have to work on when I'm on the Saturday night show especially when back announcing...in due time...

Hey Randy! Isn't picking pockets a crime?

Categories:

I know Randy Leonard started life as a fireman rather than a policeman, but you'd think he'd understand that taking money out of someone else's pocket isn't nice. Last week the commissioner not only announced once again his intent to pick Multnomah County's pocket - the polite term the city council uses is urban renewal - but publicly took Multnomah County Chair Ted Wheeler to task for protesting about it.

Checking in on the Oregon Legislature

Categories:

Closing the budget gap. Reviving Oregon's economy. Saving public services. These are just some of the issues Oregon lawmakers are facing this session. How is Oregon's 2009 legislature tackling these challenges? Is change in the wind in Salem? Jo Ann and Dave take a look at some of the key issues and the legislative responses playing out inside the Capitol so far.

Movie Talk: DVD Review, Two by Michael Powell

We've discussed Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger many times on Movie Talk so it is a delight to announce that two of Powells' most difficult-to-see films have finally made their way onto DVD. The Michael Powell Double Feature gathers together Powell's last financially successful film in his lifetime, A Matter of Life and Death (1946), called Stairway to Heaven in America, and done with his longtime partner Pressburger, and Powell's last film, Age of Consent (1969) based on an Australian novel by the multifaceted Norman Lindsay (who was also the subject of the mid-'90s movie Sirens) and shot down under. </P>
