Anyway, to make your non-classy internet surfing a little more...classy...go to www.luxuriamusic.com You can stream it from any music player and it really makes you feel like you're NOT wasting your time looking up rare cartoons from your childhood, reading strange news stories from places you've never heard of, or doing one more google search of your own name (just to see if you've secretly been doing things behind your own back).

They are doing Urinetown at CRC in the spring and I told Steve, the musical director, that I would be available for subbing. He was happy to hear that. I hope I get to play!

I volunteered to be on the board of the Sacramento Valley Returned Peace Corps Volunteer group, and do their newsletter and web site. I haven't done a newsletter in about ten years, so I'm ready to enjoy it again. And maintaining a web site is very little work as long as I don't actually have to write anything.

She says they love me over there because I'm so fast.
This is my last Foodstuffs illustration (seeing a Mexican seafood place from the highway).

At the party afterwards we talked about some of the recent alumni of B of B who are now working in New York: Jennifer Foote (who also went to UCI, Rachel's school) has done several Broadway shows and is now in the ensemble of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels; Kevin Ankele, formerly our sound guy, is doing pyrotechnics and electrics for the Phantom tour; Geoff something, a former stage manager of B of B, is stage managing shows in New York(currently Lestat); Becky Riker, a B of B and then a Kings dancer, went to New York just this year and has already done an Off-Broadway show and will be on a Christmas tour of the Midwest; Jewel Owens is not dancing any more but is house manager of a Broadway theater (Gershwin?).

Laura Sherman, the outstanding harpist from the pit of Wicked that I played with in Peter Pan, is currently on tour with Barbra Streisand. I asked her to do a blog of the tour, and if not, then to at least send pictures so I could post them. Her reply:
You're funny. Unfortunately, I can't. We had to sign a confidentiality form. Will have to leave things to people's imagination, I guess.
This is from a high school (!!) production in Southern California this past spring. It's the opening number of Songs from a New World, a musical revue by Jason Robert Brown. (Rachel and I are two of the legion of JRB fans.)
Incidentally, my cousin Chris sent all three of his daughters to this high school.

Setting up with the John Skinner band before a wedding. The groom was Jewish and the bride Filipino; the ceremony was traditionally Jewish, so she must have converted. During the party, the groom got up on stage with a guitar and sang a song in Tagalog. Half the crowd went wild!
