Which is from this article on Spiderman:

I am ridiculously amused by this.
Holy shit!

Nice pic down in the left hand corner tho. *slurps more tequila*

$143 to *file* your taxes? Who are you paying to do them, Principal Management's head accountant?

30 to file fed returns, 30 for NC, 30 for VA and another 40 for audit protection, since I claimed work and moving expenses.

Here is some unsolicited advice from me to you:

If, one day, you see a girl wearing the most awesome, cute raincoat you've ever seen and are tempted to ask her where she got it even though you're crowded onto a city bus and people hate to even make eye contact, much less have a conversation with a stranger before you've had your coffee, DO IT.

Because if you don't, you will be kicking yourself months later when you are looking for a raincoat to take to Ireland and would kill to have one just like that cute one that girl was wearing on the bus months ago.

That's my advice from me to you.

^ thank you for that. Duly noted.

I just went off on someone on another forum who was all "What's so great about Julie Taymor? I saw ATU and it was okay..." I gave them examples of her work dating back from Bali/India in the 70's, through Asia and America in the 80's and then her recent take on Shakespeare's The Tempest.

Wow. I don't even know who she is. *snickers*

All I know her from is Lion King, Across the Universe and then the new Tempest. (And of course the new musical from hell.) I have no idea about any of her pre-Lion King work.

S'okay. I just didn't like the guy's tone. He wasn't saying "Hey, does anyone know why Julie Taymor is so well respected?" It was more like "WTF, who the hell is this chick?" and it bothered me.

Quote:
She's been an innovator in the world of theatre since the 80s. Not everything in the world is pop culture, and just because Entertainment Weekly doesn't cover it doesn't mean it's not art. She's done amazing things with puppetry and visually, she's a genius. You have only to look at images of her work from Asia and India to realize that she has a truly unique vision. What she does with the human body, I have never seen another director/designer do.

Her most recent treatment of Shakespeare: The Tempest (2010) - IMDb

Her treatment of Beowulf: Julie Taymor's Grendel(BroadwayWorld.com)

I saw this show in middle school and it solidified my future as a theatre artist: The King Stag - Carlo Gozzi

Fool's Fire: notcoming.com | Fool's Fire

Oedipus Rex: Movie Review - Oedipus Rex - Review/Film; Two Oedipuses, One Clad in Guilt, The Other in Clay - NYTimes.com


eta: I stand corrected. She was doing amazing things in Java and Bali in the mid-70s
I'm trying to find some really cool pics of her stuff...

Just popping back in for a sec. Have any of you guys seen the documentary Catfish? We just watched it. Holy shit. It's well worth a watch.

Zooey, that "interview" sounds ridiculous and pointless, and as I was reading it, I also thought "speed dating!" I know a bit about the emphasis on test scores down there (it's a national thing, right?), but is drama even one of the things included in those tests?

Okay, that's probably more Julie Taymor than anyone in this thread wanted but what can I say? I've been a fan since I saw her production of The King Stag in 7th grade. I didn't understand it at all but visually, it left a major impression on my little creative brain.

Not yet. I may have been on my high horse just a bit there.

Haven't seen Catfish. What's it about?
No, drama isn't "tested" but the asst. superintendent tried to tell one of my students that I wasn't doing anything to help her (the student) understand the concepts on the test. Like hell!!! We do as much literary analysis as any English lit class! Don't tell me I don't help kids read. AND all of my students end the year with an original playwriting competition, with the best original scripts from each class being produced. Don't tell me I don't help them become better writers. (not angry at you, of course, but the argument that 'drama doesn't affect test scores is a double edged sword)

That's the meeting-strangers-on-Facebook movie, right? I remember reading about it when it came out. It had a lot of buzz, but I think there was some controversy over how "real" it actually was.

I need to put that in my Netflix queue.

just IMDB'd Catfish, VP. Sounds freaky.

Oh, Cori, I just started reading "Love Is a Mix Tape". I don't know... I can't say I love it. It's not really grabbing me.

It definitely helps with all of that, plus you get all of those intangible and untestable benefits like self confidence, improved public speaking abilities, comfort with giving presentations, and things like that.

eta - in fact, Sarah and I were talking about that earlier today. In the program I was in, and the one she's currently in, you have to give presentations up the wazoo. She had to give a super intimidating one earlier this week, and I was asking about her level of nervousness. She said that she's never really that nervous with school presentations, which is kind of weird because she tends to be very quiet and reserved, and she attributed her comfort level with them largely to her high school drama classes.

That's the one. Apparently the filmmakers maintain that the whole thing is true. I can see it happening. I've read many similar stories - much worse, in fact - and I can see how they started making a film about it, before they actually knew it was going to turn out to be a thing. I don't want to say any more about it, because the less it's spoiled the better, but if either of you ever see it, I'd be curious to hear what you think of it.

And I can't remember the last time Mr.Z and I watched a movie I don't know why we don't. I guess it's that by the time the little guy goes to bed and we clean up dinner, it's too late to start a movie most nights. I tried to get him to make a run to the Red Box on Friday but he didn't want to. But it does sound intriguing.
