Mark!

Fast Notes

Forgot to mention that I saw Jem Rolls Off The Tongue in Ottawa as well - he's on all across the country, doin' his crazy in-your-face poetry slammage thing. If you like slam poetry, you should go, and if you don't, well, you're just not real. I'm sorry you had to learn this way. If you don't know if you'd like it or not, you should take this opportunity to find out. He's that good.

Technical people are clever and that's all I've got to say about our tech rehearsal. The Tarragon Extra Space turns out to be not unlike the basement of the U of O venue; kind of snug, well-ventilated, booth right out in the crowd where everybody will notice me doing my job. This ought to be more fun than an empty barrel.
