Virgo 23° (September 14)
I stayed in most of today just watching coverage of news while getting my head around this final night of festival and how freaking spread as thin as marmite my nerves are. My eyes have been super bloodshot I think it’s the air conditioning in the pet-friendly room. Sophie and Mark from ART are coming tonight to the shows which we will also be presenting at ART this coming season, so that’s good. I had this to say about the shows: The last night of the Afterglow Festival gave us life with the stand-out, stand-up poet-activist-playwright Kareem Lucas (with the middle initial M.). The truth and the beauty and the hope and inspiration were dripping off his poignantly delivered prose, never prosaic. The quality audience that saw this show will go forth and spread the good word about this great artist……… We could not be more pleased with the finale act of the ninth annual Afterglow Festival: Migguel Anggelo’sLatinXoxo hit home this year’s (always mysteriously emerging) themes of Vulnerability, Identity, Process and Renewal. In its grander incarnation, the tenderness will be offset…? balanced…? unmasked..?? by a big-band onstage presence. Bringing you Cugaut and Charo with sprit, intelligence and Love.
Walked back to the hotel in the pouring rain and don’t have much hope for my Margiela jacket, which is a shame. It will turn out that I spent a thousand dollars on buying drinks and snacks for folks at festival, which is actually fine. S. had a good idea about making the festival free to people. That would entail basically just another 10K we would need to raise but how cool would it be to be able to bring people into town that could fill every seat. This would be more leverage to get people donate, especially folks who live in town because we know that free tickets will bring people to town and we can somehow track folks, or they can send people to the theater. It would be a great idea but now as I’m thinking it through I’m realizing I can probably just step up the senior and student concept or do it by lottery. The only thing is if people don’t show that’s kind of a problem. Never mind that isn’t going to work we can do half and half. The main goal would be to get a great crowd for ten year anniversary. We shall see. I might not do it at all. The first thing I need to do this next couple of weeks is totally cool it and get into bed early every day. I know these Blagues haven’t been that exciting this week but I’ve been busy with this festival and so you’ll live. I will be getting more creative again soon I promise.
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360 degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
