3800 Elizabeth: Good Enough For New York Press

nytheatre mike in “3800 Elizabeth”

Well, it’s Friday again and I actually have some time to blog this week. Cue the “Hallelujah!” chorus.

First things first: I have been so busy lately that I slacked off on pestering you all about coming to see the latest episode of 3800 Elizabeth last week. Lucky for you I’m not slacking this week – especially since there are only two new episodes left! If you haven’t been to see us yet, now would be a good time because we’re gonna go out with a bang! This week’s guest star is none other than the illustrious Heath Kelts (currently appearing in The Brick Theater’s production of Notes From Underground), playing Carl the ex-con. Here’s this week’s synopsis…

Episode 5: “Writ of Estoppel” – Mike, Sonja, and AJ convene at the local OTB for some random musings about sporting blood, Bugs Bunny as an authority on love and racing, and Sonja’s unexplainable fear of frogs. By the way, what is that tic in Sonja’s hand, anyway – palsy or Epstein Barr Virus? Meanwhile, AJ tries to get an ex-con to read Ford Maddox Ford, and…by the way: what the hell is a writ of estoppel, anyway?

By the way: allow me to point out the lovely article that journalist Joe Pompeo wrote about us in last week’s issue of New York Press. My thanks to Joe for the positive press and for coming out to see us. If we’re good enough for New York Press, then we’re definitely good enough for you. Now come on out and see us already. (It’s FREE, by the way, in case I hadn’t mentioned that already.)

Now, having gotten that out of the way, it’s time for The Main Event – this week’s Random Friday Top 10, courtesy of my iTunes music library and the “Shuffle” feature:
  • “Ain’t No Half Steppin'” – Big Daddy Kane (The Best of Big Daddy Kane)
  • “Handle With Care” – The Travelling Wilburys (The Travelling Wilburys Collection)
  • “When it Falls” – Zero 7 (When it Falls)
  • “Take Me to the River” (Live) – Talking Heads (The Name of This Band is Talking Heads)
  • “Circles” – Incubus (Morning View)
  • “Bad Sneakers” – Steely Dan (Citizen Steely Dan 1972-1980)
  • “New Born” – Muse (Origin of Symmetry)
  • “Rhythm of Love” – Yes (Big Generator)
  • “Theme from Sugarland Express” – John Williams (John Williams’ Greatest Hits 1969-1999)
  • “Rough Boys” – Pete Townshend (Anthology)

And, since I didn’t do a Random Friday Top 10 last week, here’s what it would’ve looked like if I had (courtesy of Pandora’s Quick Mix feature):

  • “Siva” – Smashing Pumpkins (Gish)
  • “After Midnight” – Eric Clapton (Eric Clapton)
  • “In This Home on Ice” – Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah)
  • “Even in the Quietest Moments” – Supertramp (Even in the Quietest Moments)
  • “When I Paint My Masterpiece” – The Band (Cahoots)
  • “Crosscut Saw” (Live) – Otis Rush (Live at Montreaux 1986)
