Re: “Miracle Metal

Come to the Royale this Sunday, 5pm, and meet the author who wrote what the Tucson Weekly is calling, "the most important book you'll read all year."

Join us at the Bisbee Royale for a night filled with everything Bill Carter. There will be a screening of Miss Sarajevo as well as U2's Missing Sarajevo short documentary.

After the films a discussion will ensue based on Bill's previous books as well as his newest release Boom, Bust, Boom.

Re: “Wherefore Art Thou?

Both the Weekly and the Star misused the word "wherefore." It means WHY. I learned this in high school. At least the Weekly advised they were using a bit of license! The Star just used it as the word "where," as in where the performance is located. I am so sick of the misuse of this phrase!

Re: “Drugs and Prophecy

This is another great book by Darrell James. Like the first book, Nazareth Child, I was unable to put it down because Del is such an interesting character and Darrell James tells a great story. Im anxiously waiting for the next book!

Re: “A Farce That Flails

Although Sherilyn Forrester makes some good points regarding the playwrights overriding presence throughout the show and that at times he becomes more important than the story he is trying to tell. However, after seeing a performance last week I felt that the acting and directing were outstanding and gave life and fun to what sometimes feels like an odd course of events. There are continual laughs and the direction is tight and playful. This production pulled everything together for me and turned out to be a far more enjoyable evening than I had ever expected. It's certainly ls not great literature but I'd recommend it for a good night out. -A. David

Re: “Little Art, Big Detail

I find Margaret Regan's article disappointing, but reflective of the author. The Mini-Time Machine Museum of Miniatures is a lovely place to visit and admire the works of many artists. I always enjoy taking visitors and delight when they are surprised and impressed to find such a museum in Tucson. We do not need some bourgeois author disparaging the Mini-Time Machine Museum to inflat her worth. Thank you Mini-Time Machine for your contribution to the community.

Re: “Gabler vs. Gabler

The productions are staged on alternate nights, so we could see the somber Hedda Gabler...

Re: “A Tale of Abuse

As someone who just escaped an abusive relationship and knows a little too well what it's like to "enable" her abuser, I am curious to know how the author researched her material? Although it's painful, part of the process of healing (for me) is reading about abuse and I'm looking forward to getting a copy of this!

Re: “The Fall Arts Preview

It was not in the article, but was in our accompanying listings: http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/lava-mu…

Re: “The Fall Arts Preview

Sorry, Jimmy. I appreciate your quick response. I looked through the Music listings in the above article and then searched on 'LAVA' and didn't find it. Would you please send me a link to it? (You can send it via PM if you like.)

Re: “The Fall Arts Preview

Bonnie, LAVA was not overlooked at all; it's indeed included in our fall arts listings. As for Margaret's writeup, I reiterate what she said in her intro: "There's far too much going on for everything to fit into these few pages."

Re: “The Fall Arts Preview

Submitted under music, but overlooked, LAVA Music is presenting a series of 10 concerts featuring world class musicians this fall at Abounding Grace Sanctuary, 2450 S Kolb. Details, including videos and links to musicians' websites, are at www.lavamusic.org. Advance tickets are available online, and discounted season tickets are now offered.

Re: “Sedona Slaughter

Matt Marine is a friend of mine, so when his first book was published I had to read it. I'm a pretty avid but slow reader, and am a fan of action thriller mysteries. But Matt absolutely impressed me!!!! The book is not one of those one inch thick books that can bore me - it's only 286 pages but packed full of fast paced action and twists that makes it hard to put down. I think Matt has many more books in his future. Help spread the word to friends to read Devil's Moon.

Re: “What's Your Story?

Great article. Great monthly event. The curators always put together an interesting theme and a wonderful group of diverse storytellers. There's another great resource for storytelling in a new book called LIVING PROOF: Telling Your Story to Make a Difference by Capecci & Cage - a truly outstanding guide for anyone who wants to learn to tell their own or their cause's story. Everyone should go to Odyssey Storytelling!

Re: “The Simpler Life

Hello "No Fretss" It seems we are on the same page. I also studied with Gisela Depkat and
miss being able to contact her. When I learned about Nancy Green and heard her in concert and
on her recordings, I immediately make the same connection. But the really weird thing is that
today (July 27, 2012) is the first time I have seen your post. Get this...my car's license plate
reads "No Frets". How coincidental is that? Pat Fisher = celebstrings@cox.net

Re: “Stamp of Disapproval

It was not boring a la Mamet. I thought very well done and to be recommended as a must-see play. We don't have many of those here.

Re: “Stamp of Disapproval

While I agree that the acting was really solid, I disagree with this being a "flat" play and several of us talked at length about the play afterwards - definitely not leaving the theatre "empty-handed". OK - it isn't the BEST PLAY EVER - but it is really good (echoes of Mamet be damned) so do yourself a favor and go see what I think is a great production.

Re: “Tasty Serial

Any of Joe Brown's books are worth finding, buying and reading. He is the real McCoy - he writes about ranching and the borderlands like nobody else. I wish Joe and Rick Padilla the very best in their endeavors.
