  1. Ah, I hadn't really considered the competition shows when I thought about this -- you've put your finger on a good point!
  2. Just one, but a great choice -- Shearer was an astonishing and unique dance artist, and I'm thrilled to hear that her archive is being stabilized.
  3. Damn -- alongside all the misery he's spread throughout his community, he doesn't seem to realize the damage he does to the field. Crap, crap, crap.
  4. Sad news, has to travel.
  5. "What do they do?" "All sort of comical di-dos." I've seen this online a few times, but most folks don't get past the "ooh, icky" aspect of the style -- we don't seen contortionist acts in a conventional music context anymore, but this must be what music hall and vaudeville programs were full of. We look at the programs today -- the wild mixture of elements -- and we just don't have a clue. And yes, astonishing core strength.
  6. Did you see Lamb in the cinema broadcast of Age of Anxiety? She was very affective in an edgy, tension filled part. I will take all of your Brahms Waltzes and trade you Within the Golden Hour. I have loved it for years.
  7. Interestingly, there are several college alumni organizations that give members all kinds of electronic access to publications. I was happily surprised to learn that my school (Reed College, in Oregon) offers access to all their JSTOR publications -- this has saved me several trips to my local university. In general, big love for libraries!
  8. I've got it around here -- it is indeed full of good things.
  9. I've wondered about the blood doping angle, but I'm not a sports person and so don't know the territory. And yes, more defibrillators could save lives.
  10. I'd love to see that option for some publications I just don't follow, but I don't know of a newspaper who currently offers this -- do you have any examples?
  11. Lucky you -- I'm glad you got that chance.
  12. I've never seen her live, but her cinema appearances have been lovely.
  13. I recall similar stories when PNB danced there a few years ago -- lots of collapsing off stage and sucking on oxygen bottles. They say you get acclimated after a couple of days, but I have a feeling that's for normal walking around stuff -- not dancing.
