Buntport Theater Company

Davis first told me about their production of Moby Dick. Then Colorado Public Radio did an interview about their tenth season, where they are remounting past productions. Last night, we saw Buntport Theater Company's original production (well, they write and produce all of their own work) of Kafka on Ice. It depicts the life of Franz Kafka together with scenes from The Metamorphosis. All on ice.

It was the most imaginative play I've seen in ages. The actors were outstanding. There's a hilarious scene with an English teacher using a lesson plan downloaded from the Internet to talk to her students about symbolism. There's a remote control insect used to wonderful effect. And a sheet from a sanitorium bed is transformed into a rippling sea. There are reviews of the show on the the Buntport website.

I look forward to seeing these guys more often.

Pirate Radio

The movie Pirate Radio makes me happy. There is great music, Bill Nighy, and lots of people dancing around, the way humans do. I need that soundtrack.

January Resolution Review

I wrote for a few minutes every day in January. (Actually, I started on January 3rd, so I extended it until February 2nd.) Also, I organized my clothes closet.

For February, I'm abstaining from takeout for dinner 5 nights a week. Week 1 was a success thanks to a giant pot of lentil soup that J.P. made last weekend.

Zach Attack

Zach Wahls, 19, spoke at the public hearing on Iowa House Joint Resolution 6, a resolution proposing an "amendment to the Constitution of the State of Iowa specifying marriage between one man and one woman as the only legal union that is valid or recognized in the state."

The House voted yesterday. The resolution passed.
