As I have an academic article being considered for book publication, and as said article is due on September 1, and as I need to facilitate a great deal of improvement on said article, therefore I shall be blogging but lightly between now and said due date.
But fear not intrepid readers and eager listeners… the Sunday Sessions will be posted! However, rather than recording songs, I will most likely be posting some of LtL’s “deep tracks” – songs that I recorded on my old Tascam Portastudio back in the late 80s/early 90s.
A quick update on LtL’s goings on:
- Now – “Redressing Ripley: Disrupting the Female Hero” – academic article due Sept. 1, considered for inclusion in a book being edited by Lisa Robson & Elizabeth Graham and published by Cambridge Scholars Press.
- September – Not returning to graduate school this fall. I am taking a leave of absence from the Theatre Ph.D. program at CUNY’s The Graduate Center.
- September – Having been granted the film rights to Charles Mee’s Orestes 2.0, I will be adapting the play for film. If you are a director of photography or a producer and want to be involved in this project, please email me with a resume and why you want to help make a dogme-style film version of Orestes 2.0.
- October – will be spent doing another draft of my play, Massive Gravitational Objects – after it has had a public reading produced by Emergency Theater Project (date TBA). After which I plan on letting the play fly free on the wings of submissions and see where it lands.
- November – I plan on taking part in the National Novel Writing Month, and spend the month writing a 50,000 word novel–for those who don’t want to do the math, that is roughly 1700 words per day. Check out their site, and if you are interested in joining with me in this mad-cap writing adventure, let me know and we can start a LivingtheLiminal Novel writing forum.
- Ongoing – Background development and collaborative brainstorming on Tales of the Frumush, Series 1: a multi-authored, epic series for the stage. Think Joss Whedon meets Mac Wellman, with some Ronald Moore, Charles Mee, and Caryl Churchill thrown into the mix.
- Ongoing – Temping and/or getting some sort of “day job” in order to make money. Of course, if I happen to have a wealthy admirer out there who wants to become my patron and support my writing and directing goals, please contact me and I will gladly dedicate all my work in honor of you in return for your financial support. Just think of the karma points you would make off of this deal!
- Ongoing – Returning to a vow I made several years ago that I have not managed to keep up on a regular basis: write one letter every weekend to one person I care about.
- Ongoing – working toward a goal of going to the gym 6 days/week and alternating days with 1 hour of cardio one day and 30 minutes of cardio and strengh training the next. Honest? I didn’t go today, and probably won’t.
I guess that about covers it. I would like to find some time to get out of the city for some canoeing and to enjoy a natural setting. I would also like to see some of the events at Spiegeltent – but that will depend first upon getting some work and some money.
I will leave you with a few quotations:
If all economists were laid end to end, they would not reach a conclusion. George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950) Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness? Artemus Ward (1834 – 1867) Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. Isaac Asimov (1920 – 1992)
