Listless for the Prosecution

Well, been awhile, hasn't it? Not that I've been the most active blogger. In recent months, humble self was pre-occupied with the El Paso Playhouse production of Witness for the Prosecution. I auditioned, since I love Agatha Christie, and to my surprise, I landed the role of the defendant Leonard Vole.

The show was... interesting. I'd be tempted to call it a trial (ahem), full of actors dropping out early on, intoxicated co-stars (at least it was limited to rehearsals), missed cues and lines, two of our actors reading their dialogue, and self hurting my left knee night after night. In the end, though, I think we acquitted ourselves handsomely, and I met some new and interesting friends.

Hope to get back to blogging here, with a ton of stuff still to scan and discuss (Bungleton awaits!) but in the meantime, I recently started a column at In contrast to these humble surroundings, Examiner writing pays (sort of, a cent per page view more or less, so please give a penny for my thoughts!)

I'm the official El Paso Cartoon Examiner, and my latest entry is here:
