She sure likes to talk about herself a lot.
OMGWTFBBQ! The Robsham Theater Arts Center from Boston College is putting on a musical comedy inspired by songs by our buddy Jonathan Coulton! If you didn't hear his live performance the last time he was on The 404, go check it out and get ready for some musical theater. Luke Jorgenson, the associate theater professor at BC, was "taken by Coulton's satire of office life and technology," which inspired him to produce the script. We're very psyched for Jonathan. Congrats, buddy!
I knew that was happening, but I've forgotten where I heard it before.
Flansblog 2009Four guys named John walk into a bar.Had a great time the night after our benefit show in Williamsburg seeing Long Winters frontman and old pal John Roderick's solo show at the low key but beautiful Union Hall in Park Slope. Roderick did an inspired set with a tremendous amount of spontaneous hijinx and a nice duet with Nada Surf's Matthew Caws. Ran into the Deranged Millionaire himself Mr. John Hodgman in the crowd with Jonathan Colter. After the show we all went up stairs for a game of bocci (which I believe is Italian for "horseshoes with balls"). We understood the game a lot better by the end, although still probably not well enough to go against real players. In spite of our blissful ignorance , the competition was intense. My team with Coulter, The Good Guys, got an early lead but as the nuances of the game were revealed the subtle, graceful touch of Mr. Hodgman began to dominate the play and we lost. I think we felt like the Yankees do right now.
