Re: 11 Stage Props To Vanish In 2011

Hi Jonathan, I like the distinction of power vs. puzzle and what it means for the style of performer to have an ordinary looking prop versus an extra-ordinary one. That's some good thinking there. Reading through the essay, you'll see that I mention I'm only referring to the standard or most common ...

Re: 11 Kid Show Thoughts For 2011

I love Dr. Seuss!

Perhaps we can compare apples to apples and poet/playwrights with poet/playwrights.

Say, William Shakespeare as compared to William McGonagall.

With the capacity for Shapespeare, yes, it would be aesthetically inferior to give an audience McGonagall.

Re: Satanic Booktest now SHIPPING!

The two points that seem be permeating this thread are whether or not the price is justified and whether or not Brad is funny. Firstly, I'd like to say that $50 is NOT in the high priced range. At $1000, the Devil's Cola Bottle would be closer to the mark. However, I do understand how some people fe...

Barrie shared this with me a couple of years ago so I'm not sure if he's since published or titled it, but it is...
