Our production of Ray Bradbury's DANDELION WINE has won the Gold Ogle Award for Best Fantasy Production of the year by the American Society For Science Fiction Audio! This is the second year in row we have won the top honor (last year we won for THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW). Got a very nice letter from David Ossman (of Firesign Theatre Fame) who will hand out the awards on July 6th in Minneapolis. The show was a marathon of production, recording in two sessions, and edited in two weeks. Thanks to our Director, Nancy Curran Willis, and especially to Ray Bradbury who wrote the script (based on his 1957 novel).

new releases

Early listenings by "preview people" are saying that SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES is good one! Our FATHER BROWN MYSTERIES, VOL. 1 is completed and will soon be sent off to our publisher. M J Elliott is writing the scripts for Vol. 2. Looking forward to recording them. GUNS OF POWDER RIVER is now in editing, and we are still planning a mid-July release.

I haven't ranted in a while.

Rosie wants the PRICE IS RIGHT job?? I'll never watch again. I guess she is going to try and recapture her "Queen of Nice" gig. Too late - the true colors have been flown.

Mayor Bloomburg - what are you thinking??! Two words to remember - ROSS PEROT (and he had billions too)

I havent watched it, because I cant stand reality TV, but AMERICA'S GOT TALENT - I mean - we have David Hasselhoff judging TALENT??!!!!!

Almost got rear ended today by a nice oblivious lady in her BMW chatting on her cell phone, laughing, and having a hell of a good time. I saw her in my rear view mirror as she got closer and closer. If I didnt swing out of the lane where I was PARKED, she would have gone right into me. Seeing as how she ran right through a red light, its amazing she didnt hit anyone. Last I saw of her, she was still holding the phone to her ear, driving merrily on her way. The dark side of me thought that I should have let her hit me. I would have had a stiff neck, but the world would be rid of another dangerous driver.

remember the world before cell phones?

Angela Lansbury should have won the TONY Award. Saw her last month at the Music Box in NYC; great performance!! WHo was that woman who won? Remember the "good old days" when people didnt act like idiots when they won awards? I was watching some old clips on Youtube of the old Oscar and TONY broadcasts. How times have changed. Angie would have brought some class into the act.

Saw Christopher Plummer last month also, in INHERIT THE WIND. Awesome production, but I already wrote about that last month (Angela and Plummer in one day - fantastic). Still - I was rooting for him!!

thats enough. back to writing. aloha.

Production wraps!

June 17, 2007 - Post production is completed on Ray Bradbury's SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES! What I originally thought would be a 3 month post turned into a 10 month post. First time I miscalculated - but it was worth it - we got a good one here :)
