Re: “Music: Night Driving in Small Towns

Before I get to my comment, I want to send a big F-YOU to the staff at the Highland Inn Ballroom and Dave the photographer from Lower 40 Records. You are a bunch of A-Holes!

I didn't know it was a Zombie Dance Party so I was unprepared when I walked in on dozens of the bloody undead. Shane Morton from the Silver Scream Spookshow was doing make-up: Amazing stuff! The audience really looked great. The room was well decorated too with spider webs, tombstones, skulls and candles. The bands were playing along and all made up too which was great. Today The Moon Tomorrow The Sun played an awesome set, as always. Night Driving in Small Towns played well. It was my first time hearing them: They were good but need more work on their stage production.

Back to ranting - I got there a little late and the second band NDiST was performing. As I watched the zombies dance, I got the idea for a group zombie photo while the bands did their change-over. The lights were still on in one corner of the room so it could be done. I mentioned the plan to a few of the professional photogs and zombies and waited. But just as NDiST finished, the lights went out. I asked one of the band members to make an announcement but the sound was already turned off. No amount of polite asking on my part could get the staff to cooperate - without lights to focus and frame the picture and an announcement to get the zombies together it was going to be very difficult, and the staff photogs didn't care: Buttheads! Eventually I wrangled most of the zombies into a corner for a photo but since it was very dark and I didn't have my good camera, my pictures are only fair. And the pro-photogs? Useless! How short sighted of Lower 40 Records to throw such an awesome party and then not make the effort to capture an audience shot! Yes, pictures of the bands are important but a great audience shot would have inspired the fans. A-Holes!

Bring your own spoon? Wouldn't a football be more appropriate? That's what Americans throw around randomly.

Re: “Theater: The Day of Murders in the History of Hamlet

hmmmm... the other bad comments have disappeared from this blog. I guess Holman realized what an inaccurate and uninformed opinion he gave of this awesome show.....

Re: “Theater: The Day of Murders in the History of Hamlet

Never begging to disagree with Curt Holman, I disagree with the "in the wrong hands" jab. "The Day of Murders in the History of Hamlet" is an excellent production: engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining. Superb actors interpet Koltes' lines with a flash of eyes, a step in retreat, folded arms; Nicholas Baby's music production is phenomenal. It's not in "wrong hands" when you see a standing ovation. I'm so glad 7 Stages exists to bring us a taste of fine world culture rather than the oh-so-witty, shallow and provincial stuff that too often crosses Atlanta's stages.

Re: “Dance: Shen Yun

The belief part is actually the root of any ancient culture. And the courage to persist on own's belief is a virtue instead of a shame. I would also like to point out that to stay away from certain topic for political reason is actually the real "political" in its negative meanings. Good arts should help promote the good and suppress the bad.

For myself, I was so touched by the beauty and righteous message of this show. Everything was so pure. I recommended this show to my coworkers and promised to refund their money if they don't like it. My coworkers highly praised the show after they saw it. So far I haven't lost anything yet.

Re: “Dance: Shen Yun

Wish it had been "light on political pandering and heavy on whimsical artistry". The "ballet" of jack-booted thugs with the hammer and sickle insignia on their backs beating a female Falung Gong practitioner to death kind of put the kibosh on that idea.

We burned a Friday night watching a performance that, with rare exception, consisted of trite and repetitive choreography driven by out-of-tune musical accompaniment.

The mediocrity of the event, however, was overshadowed by the fact that this is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Falung Gong. (Not that there's anything wrong with that. I just don't like being tricked into sitting through what amounts to an indoctrination session-- much less paying for the privilege.)

Special thanks to the Cobb Energy Centre for being "less than forthright" on the purpose of the show...

Re: “Theater: Urban Nutcracker

Ok, it's at the Ferst Center. The seats there are too small and uncomfortable and the prices always too high. Oh well, maybe next time at a better venue?
