Local shows, new book covers, and the Flagship

Did anyone else think it was weird that McElwee didn't make an appearance in the Derrick article about the make up following the Arts Champion dust-up in Oil City? Anyhow, I'm glad everyone seems to have made nice.

Local rockers The RickDan Band is playing at the Franklin Presbyterian church again this Saturday at 6pm. $5 at the door.

Your last chance to catch the Yankee Zydeco Company locally for awhile comes up this Friday at Meadville's Otters Pub from 10:00pm-1:30am. Tell 'em Venangago-go sent you.

Meadville's Market House has decided to move towards a more food-cenrtic position

The Flagship Niagara gets drydocked. The photos are really nice:

At a college that I won't name, I resigned from advising the newspaper because my requests for an online edition were denied by the administration. Those muckrackers at SRU make it clear why. I love it.

After the queasy looks last year when I suggested The Santaland Diariesfor Theatre in the Little Theatre's Christmas show (which I wanted to star in, but alas, for the first time in my life, I wasn't elfin enough), you can probably add A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant to the list of shows that won't be coming to Venango County anytime soon.

Penguin has begun publishing some of its classics with blank covers for th readers to decorate and then submit the covers. Yes, I'll be doing this, and you should too. I'm thinking Crime and Punishment:

The bad guy on NBC's Heroes, Zachary Quinto, is a Pittsburgh native

Pittsburgh area newscasters get spoofed by the Onion.

The new Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit embraces its industrial past while welcoming art and artists.

They NY Times 10 best book of 2006? I've only read one. I'm a bad, bad word nerd.
