A Couple of Notes
1) Strangers With Candy: The Movie
2) Rumor has it that Dead Can Dance will be announcing their North American tour dates sometime in February. (And that they've been selling out the majority of their shows in Europe.)
1) Strangers With Candy: The Movie
Nothing of any major interest other than a quick rant about how some pharmacy techs. don't bother to friggin' check with the person first about an order before they fill it. I've got asthma. One of the drugs I use is Uniphyl which is a brand name for theophylline. It's the only one of that drug I tolerate well so I use it exclusively (and a couple of other types of drugs as well). The generic makes me speedy as all hell but, for some reason, the Uniphyl doesn't affect me as badly.
| You scored as Aquarius. You get along best with the sign of Aquarius. Although Aquarians can be seem very odd, or over opinionated, they are good generous people. They are the humanitarians of the zodiac; they always put others in the place of themselves. Aquarians have a strong sense of individuality, and likewise, can be very eccentric. They usually have many friends because they are very easy to get along with, although at times, Aquarians can be withdrawn and introverted when they choose to be.|

I'm sitting here and I can't believe I'm hearing Kinky Friedman singing "Sold American" over my 'puter's speakers! It's been a long time since I heard The Texas Jew Boy and it's bringing back fond memories. I remember seeing him in concert at the old Lone Star Cafe on 5th Ave. and 8th St. in NYC back in the early 80's. The station I'm listening to is Pirate Cat Radio, a pirate radio (and pirate tv station) in San Francisco (Mission Street, to be exact.) Just found out about it tonight when the head honcho posted about it on tribe.net. So far, I'm enjoying it. I'll be listening some more for further investigation.

Oh, Lawdy! This sounds like hitting rock bottom but then, "Jerry Springer: The Musical" seems to be a hit.
Calling all "dancers, musicians, filmmakers, storytellers, poets, artists and synchronized swimmers" (at least in the NYC area!): Apparently, The Brick Theater in Brooklyn, NY is doing The Moral Values Festival June 3 thru July 3 and is accepting submissions until February 14th. As they describe it, it's "a performance festival for the morally questionable, morally perverse and morally bankrupt." Sounds like my kinda party! It continues: "THE MORAL VALUES FESTIVAL is a performance festival with an emphasis on theater, but with opportunities for dancers, musicians, filmmakers, storytellers, poets, artists and synchronized swimmers to apply. Any and all artists with works relating to the theme of Moral Values are encouraged to submit their works. Performance dates and times will vary with each show, but all works will be shown on weekdays from 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm and weekends from Noon to Midnight."
This one goes to Karen who mentioned those bizarre embryonic Teletubbies today:
Last night I watched Chinatown for the umpteenth time (so sue me! It's one of my all time top personal fave flicks) and I finally decided (well, make that "actually remembered to...") check out the mention of the Van der Lip Dam disaster which the character, Hollis Mulwray, bases his refusal to build another dam in the San Frenando Valley.
Just got an e-mail about a half hour ago from my sister's friend who lives in Columbo, Sri Lanka. She's okay and safe but says there's so much shock and devastation. She also mentioned these two organizations for making contributions:
A friend e-mailed me this article and though it would make a nice entry here:
Yep! Everything's still accounted for! Good...just wanted to do a quick-o post before I space it out.
