Not your average violin!

Our friend Darrel Soetaert’s graduation recital is tonight. He started his schooling in violin but was convinced to switch to viola.

A little bit of Schubert, a little bit of Bach. Should be good if the hoodlums I’m with keep it down 😉

Tom Wood’s Menagerie

Despite all my conniving, Leslie has managed to drag me off to the Citadel’s Glass Menagerie. AND at the last moment informed me it’s one of Tom Wood’s productions. I’ve had a hate on for Mr Woods since forever, but what he did to Chekov (Uncle Vanya) was the last straw.

So to recap: seen the play too many times; Tom Wood sucks; I’ve been played for a fool.

Oh, and it stars Fiona Reid. Who is the female Gordon Pinset… all Canadian, all the time. And I mean ALL the time… everywhere, like a rash, only bigger and more annoying.

But it’ll probably be fine. Really.

OK… Fiona good, Khalid bad. Who’s Khalid you ask? I guess we’ll have to ask Tom…
