Sunday Roundup – March 10

Feels like spring is on its way this week – I hope so. Everyone’s got that same tired of boots and coats and scarves look about them. Let’s open some windows!

Last week: oh, and within these links are trailer videos to a show that’s running, a show opening this week, and a show opening next week. Don’t say I never tell you anything. And while we’re at it, I’m assuming you’ve turned your clock forward.

School is in Session and We’ve got Video!

More Video, Artist Earnings, Retrograde Mercury and Media and Patti Smith

One more Video, and a Clever Idea from Canadian Stage

In other news over the past couple of weeks a talented marketing student named Jo Hewitt has been busily creating a Facebook page for my business, and it’s finally gone live. I figure it’s going to pretty much be a FB version of this website, with a little extra client content thrown in. Many thanks for your work, Jo – you did a good job and it’s much appreciated.

Finding this to be extremely cool: Like whatever, eh? U of T prof tracks evolution of Canadian English across generations.

Off into the day with you – have a spectacular Sunday.

More Video, Artist Earnings, Retrograde Mercury and Media and Patti Smith

Fantastic video from The Whipping Man, a Harold Green Jewish Theatre production in association with Obsidian Theatre – director Philip Akin. At the bottom of the post for your viewing pleasure.

An excellent article from the National Post on artist earnings, specifically indie musicians, and I agree with a friend who said it was possibly one of the best written articles on a stats report she’d seen.

Mercury is in retrograde til the 17th. Whether you believe in that stuff or not, enough people bring it up and blame it to have an effect.   Mercury is the planet of communication in all forms.  This includes verbal, email, phones, internet, written, signing papers and electronics.  It can also affect mechanical issues such as your computer or your car.  In retrogrades, communications are affected negatively. It was in retrograde through Pisces.

Mercury in retrograde with Pisces. Planet of Communications (also my ruling planet) in retrograde with the sign for artistic endeavours. I spent yesterday afternoon juggling six interviews with three newspapers with four actors on two shows. It all worked out in the end.  Wanna dance, Mercury?


Speaking of media – great little post from Seth Godin on Understanding Local Media

Tonight I’m off to the Patti Smith exhibit at the AGO .
There’s a talk after, and I’m looking forward to it. It’s obviously been a delightfully theatre-centric few weeks, but sometimes you need other art to sustain you, perk you up and juice up your creativity from another angle. It’s like a dill pickle after days of bread.
