Once again Brian Webb Dance Company presents Wen Wei Dance and Beijing Modern Dance Company. We saw them last year and it was pretty darn good, so I have high hopes for a repeat performance.
The performance is entitled Under the Skin, a little less suggestive than last year’s Cock-Tails.
Very interesting water motif and some gorgeous lighting. And, a dancer with a tattoo; very interesting.
Sitting in the dentists chair…
And now having a beer with Marcie at BP and using picasa for images…

Tonight is Melissa Etheridge and someone Leslie likes called Serena Ryder at the Jube.
Never seen a rock concert at a concert hall before. Hopefully it’ll be better than Hiatt and Los Lobos were at the Winspear.
Well I’ve heard all of Serena’s songs before. Thank god for Leslie and her repeating songs over and over and over :-). Anyway, pretty much a baby Melissa in her hey day. Have to see if she can keep up.
It was a sea of red last night at Northlands as we drank free beer, ate free food and generally lived it up in Northlands’ Skysuite, courtesy of one of my new colleagues.
And yea and verily the Oilers managed to win. Twas a good game and a grand time was had by all… by Leslie and I anyway…
So I came across Melody which is a open source extension of Movable Types blog software. It sound interesting so I thought I would give it a swing. One thing that was noted several times in my research is that Movable Type was waaaaay behind WordPress and its famous 5-minute install.
I have to say it’s true. I got most of the install going but nowhere did it mention that the url to initiate the install was http://domain.com/cgi-bin/install.cgi
Kinda an important fact. At this point I am now stuck because the install wizard states that I need HTML::Parser installed and my Snow Leopard machine is choking trying to install it. Part of the problem is I don’t know perl from a hole in the ground and part is because even though I think (though fink) I have got the latest package installed, the wizard doesn’t seem to want to acknowledge the face: deep sigh. Now I am into something called CPAN and the coding is getting hot and heavy.
At this point I think the issue is I have not set up CPAN correctly because it keeps failing on the make command.
&^%$# I don’t have xcode installed since the upgrade to Snow Leopard. #$%@^! 3.5 gb download from the Apple Developer site
To enter CPAN: sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell
That was phase one. Then it turns out mysql isn’t a default install so I had to go back and try:
Chicago 16 states:
I love Eats, Shoots & Leaves, but I would have preferred to see “and” in the title rather than the ampersand — which would allow for a serial comma after “Shoots.”
