COM: Blogarithmic #117

Here's the cast call i told you to expect from Cody Gage:

GIFCO Multimedia is issuing an open casting call for an independent film (entitled 3:16 a.m.) to be shot in the Kerrville and surrounding area. Looking for MALE ACTORS age 18 to 45 to fill 2 roles (experience a plus, not a necessity), and 8-10 able people to work as crew members. For information contact Cody Gage (director) at 830-370-4222. -- A GIFCO MULTIMEDIA PRODUCTION --

And speaking of Cody Gage, he introduced me to a senior art student at Schreiner University, Lindsay Shupe, at Momix last week. Lindsay will be having her senior art show at the Cailloux Center at SU from April 18 to May 6. There's a reception on the 18th from 7-9. So, check out her work in the show titled Tri Section. I noticed also that Patrick McCorkindale, of Someone Like You, will also be showing, so that's two great reasons to go.

Meanwhile, i'll be in John Ruth's Streetcar Named Desire in September, will direct Lion in Winter in October, and direct The Octet Bridge Club in December or so. We had planned to do Lion in Winter this past winter, but things conspired against us, so we're looking at the fall again. Travis Newman may come back to town to be a part of that. Would be so great to have him in a show here again. What a talent.

Was over at Holly and Roy's yesterday and the place was full of visitors. I just missed seeing Travis Newman, but John Matthews was there, of course, and also Justin Schotts, and Matt Schmidt drove in from South Carolina to see Roy. We spent a lot of time hashing out the Wimberley OAP stuff.

Which by the way i went to on Saturday. Wimberley and Devine are advancing to Regionals in Kingsville in two weeks. I won't make that, but am hoping to see Wimberley again at state. Will do a separate review of the shows coming up, but i wanna say now that i think that, besides the usual run of great shows at state, that's the best six high school plays i've ever seen on one stage at competition. Usually you have to sit through a couple of duds, but not Saturday. Wimberley was dang near perfect, but everyone had someone and something to be proud of. So congrats to all, especially LaVernia and Bandera who had the best shows that aren't moving on. More later.

Reminder that Vehicular is playing twice Thursday, early at the Red Fez in their regular gig. More details in last Blogarithmic.

Unfortunately the Churchill boys soccer team got knocked out in the regional semis by Brownsville Pace 1-0 in a shootout. Great season though Brandon!

In other area soccer, this from

Boerne boys coach David Rogers also has state tournament experience — he was an assistant on Granbury's 4A state championship team in 1999 and was the head coach at Denton Ryan in 2001 when it lost in the 4A state semifinals.

Unlike MacArthur, Boerne (23-2-2) had all its players healthy for the first time when the playoffs began and has stormed through the postseason, outscoring opponents 16-2.

"We're playing our best soccer right now," Rogers said. "We set state as a goal all along and it's a relief to have actually met the goal, but now it's a matter of finishing the job."

Boerne has scored 96 goals this season and Rogers hopes to reach 100.

The Greyhounds face Mount Pleasant (24-4) in the 4A state semifinals at 6 p.m. Friday.

"It's a weird and good feeling right now for us," senior midfielder Ben Brown said. "We knew how good we could be, but I couldn't have imagined a better senior year."

The area's biggest surprise is the Alamo Heights girls, who put their program into its first state tournament.

Led by senior Blakely Low's 38 goals, including 10 in the playoffs, the Mules (22-3-1) are in the 4A state semifinals and will play Highland Park (23-4-1) at 1 p.m. Friday.

"To be honest, we weren't thinking of state," Mules coach Chris Sharp said. "We set out to go deep in the playoffs, but state was never in the long-term goals. I've been jumping for joy."

It's that time. Carnival of the Liberals #10 will be held on Wednesday, April 12th over at Pharyngula. There's no particular theme this time around but here's what PZ Myers has to say:

You can guess what I like: uncompromising liberalism. Strong words. No apologies. I'll look especially favorably on anything about science and science policy. And that's the way we like it! No apologies indeed.

In any event, PZ needs your submissions by Tuesday, April 11th. He didn't give a specific time so I assume he's somewhat flexible but putting together Carnival of the Liberals is time consuming because it is a selective blog carnival, so be kind. The earlier the better.
