Spring Forward

The weeks just go by fast, don't they? I can't believe it's nearly been two weeks since I updated this thing.

The time change is over. I don't know about you, but I kept discovering clocks I didn't even know I had. Like my iPod. It has a clock. Who knew? And a few days ago I got a message on my answering machine that was supposedly left when I was at home. I was momentarily confused before I realized I had yet to reset its clock. My VCR - or, as I now call it, my big ol' digital clock - was the only one that updated itself manually. And I've been tired all week. Should I blame a lack of sleep or daylight savings time? Hmmm...

None of the clocks at work updated themselves, which meant I had to go to every single maching in the building and reset its time. We have a lot of computers in the library. A lot.

I watched a DVD of Peter Gabriel's videos last night. As a child of the 80's, I remember when his "Sledgehammer" video was all the rage. Seeing it last night, I'm not sure why. Sure, it has some interesting images, but overall it's too herky-jerky to make any kind of point. But it was really successful - some people consider it the best music video ever made - and it's interesting to see how his videos following that one aped it. Nearly every one of them had the same kind of feel, full of computer graphics, bizarre images, stop-motion animation, etc. The ones that didn't - like a tender video for his song "Father/Son" that featured Gabriel and his elderly dad - made more of an impression. Still, it was a nice piece of nostalgia for the evening.

I have my next show lined up: I will be playing Rogers the Butler in Carmel Community Players' production of Ten Little Indians. I auditioned for it last weekend and got the call saying I made the cut Tuesday afternoon. The show runs June 22-July 2. More information on it later.

Father of the Bride is approaching rapidly. For those of you coming to see it, be warned that opening weekend (April 28-29-30) is quickly selling out. I will be sending one of my usual show e-mails to everyone soon with more information, but in case you're thinking of coming the first weekend, you might want to make reservations soon. More info on the show can be found here.

And that's all folks. See you before another two weeks is over.
