Just hangin' out, restin' up, and gettin' ready for a big new round of complainin' about whatever needs complainin' about. There's always somethin' or other. Always.
In a completely unconnected note, here's a reminder that Smuin Ballet lands at the Joyce Theater August 13 to 18. Tickets are moderately priced at $19 to $49. Smuin had his finger on the pulse of the country for a while; he died in 2007. Many others have copied him over the years and extremed him - it's about time the world of ballet started using the word extreme as a verb - it's so apropos and all that - kind of like a new four-letter word but with more letters. We'll probably never see Smuin's A Song for Dead Warriors again - the Emmy winning ballet he created while he was AD at San Francisco Ballet. It would just make everyone feel too uncomfortable. Why dredge up how offensively we've always treated Native American Indians when we have so many other groups who we're concurrently offending.
Let's all go see what Smuin Ballet is up to during these dog days of summer. Siriusly.
