As always, this isn't a "Best of" because my sampling of these categories is far too limited to make such a designation.On TV
- Who has two thumbs and likes The Office?
This guy! Season three has been a little hit/miss but any show with Dwight K. Shrute on it is worth watching. (Did you know you can get Dwight to call your friends and taunt them about lupus
- I once rated myself on a sexuality continuum
. Let's knock that rank down one. Don't care; enjoyed this show, though the wispy little blonde woman should have won. (Also, it reminds me of this festival
which I saw out of the blue in New Zealand.)So You Think You Can Dance?
- Crap. Knock me down another point. Downside to this show? It's the reason they made TiVo. Ten minutes of dancing (maybe) crammed into an hour-long episode.Arrested Development
- Inducted into the Dave Long Sitcom Hall of Fame after concluding season three in the spring.
Reeling - Children's Theater Company
- A world premiere production of physical comedy and silent-film shenanigans. I'm biased, as I got to be in a few productions.Hamlet - Guthrie Theater
- This was the sixth stage production of Hamlet
I've seen and likely my second favorite.
Guster - Lost and Gone Forever -
Their new album was okay, but I tracked down this older offering and it's pure pop gold. Yay!
: I'm still just so-so about their lyrics but I saw them live and they're really, really talented. Their drummer is other-worldly and their lead singer was channeling Sting from The Police, circa 1981.Springsteen
- "Oh, Mary Don't You Weep" - My favorite from the new Creole-tinged offering from Bruce.Joseph Arthur
- Nuclear Daydream -
Probably what I've been listening to most lately.
:::Cheese Parrano - It has its own website
:::Restaurant Broder's Pasta Bar
- If you're ever in the TC, especially during the winter, and you're looking for a bite...this is the place you should go.
