KCRF 2006

I’ll not bother with a summary of the proposed “30th Anniversary” theme, as does so quite nicely rye cheer.

Instead, I’ll cut to the bit of direct concern to me: I asked the E.D. if Bard’s Bouts would have to re-audition, and was told no, since he knows what we’ve got.

Which would be a good thing.

However (there’s always a “However”, isn’t there….): Because it’s the 30th Anniversary year, they’re trying to hire some big-time RenFest circuit touring acts….and therefore, and I quote: “I’m not entirely sure if I’ll be able to afford you.” He says he’ll know within the next month or so.

I was willing to take that at face value…..until about 20 minutes later, when he ran down for the assembled crowd the list of returning stage shows, which included a bunch of other local stage shows. So apparently, it was either a deliberate snub, or we just slipped his mind.

Feel the love, kids. Feel the love.

More Damning Evidence to Be Ignored

The AP acquired confidential video showing President George W Bush being briefed by officials on the eve of the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
The video clearly shows very strong warnings being given to Mr Bush about the potential strength of the storm…contradicting subsequent suggestions by the Bush administration that the threat had been unclear.

In other news, water is wet, and winds blow.

Gosh, color me surprised. Another lie, another fuck-up, and more direct evidence. Any chance that the American people will get up in arms about this?

Only if it pre-empts American Idol.
