Downtown Freddy Brown has a website! Not a lot there at the moment, but I'm sure more will develop (which scares me :-) )...check it out at http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/8449/. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Jeff and I are going to see WINGFIELD UNBOUND tonight, a one-man show with Dan Needles. It's the sequel to the Wingfield Trilogy, which we both loved (thanks to Graham Leathers for introducing us to these plays!). Jeff and I used to live out in the country, and it's amazing how accurately these plays portray country life and some of the people. In fact, my brother-in-law was born and raised in the town on which Larkspur was based.
I remember my baptism into country life...shortly after Jeff and I moved in, our neighbours (dairy farmers) across the road invited me to check out the spring calves. I'm glad I wore boots instead of shoes, because in order to get to the barn I discovered I would have to cross a field of extremely fresh cow manure. My first impulse, of course, was to run away screaming. But as I opened my mouth to say, "Holy Toledo, I'm not walking through THAT", I noticed I was being watched very closely. Ah. The "city girl test". So I gritted my teeth and slogged my way through the field, cowpies sucking at my boots like the salt creature in classic Star Trek as I struggled to put on my "gosh I can't believe how much FUN I'm having" face. And it was worth it...the calves were darned cute. :-) EGOBOO: Hey, just noticed that Inklings was mentioned in the Fall issue of Canadian Author magazine, woohoo!
I've started a sort of "blatherings" in Inkspot, by the way. Feel free to check it out and help me come up with a more interesting name than "From The Editor's Desk".
Last night's UT practice was fun; although we didn't do much practising, we did do a lot of post-con rehashing and congratulation Jodi about her new job (she starts on the 19th!). We're looking forwards to Confusion early next year (Jan 23-25) in Michigan, where we do an hour-long jam session with Ookla the Mok...should be fun. :-)
Jeff and I are going to see Penn and Teller tonight!
The original book was by Heinlein, yes, but the movie seems to have
very little in common with it except for a few names, and some
scenes and situations mangled almost beyond recognition. I recommend
the book. If the movie is anything like the script that's been
posted (see http://www.script-o-rama.com ), I will be staying far
away from it -- there's a big emphasis on violence and splatter, and
a sense of physics and military procedure that rank with the worst
of Star Trek's bloopers.
