Post Journal: Preparing For Peter Pan

We're in the final week of rehearsals for Peter Pan. Yesterday's technical rehearsal was the first time the pit orchestra got to see the actors in costume with all the sets in place on stage. While there's still some transitions and various bits and bobs to be ironed out, it's going to be a great show.

Post Journal reporter Nick Dean had a preview piece in today's paper on the musical (HT to the paper for the photo I used for this post).

From my personal part in the production, I'm hanging in there. Our lead violinist, Janice, will be unable to perform opening weekend due to other performance obligations, so I'll be flying solo on the first violin part. I'm a bit nervous about this since I'm still not solid on the music. On a positive note, Janice won't be at most of the rehearsals this week so it should force me to move from a following style of playing to leading for our section.

For those interested in catching a performance of Peter Pan, here is the list of dates that have seats still available:

Friday, November 9th 2:30pm

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

Bloggery (a repost)

I wrote this on another site:
Perhaps I'm too old for the reveal-all-confessional type of blogging but reading claw marks lately makes me want to start blogging again to at least expand upon the thoughts I wouldn't otherwise write out in a Facebook post or vague tweet.
A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:

[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
