Double Shout-Outs


You all know that I don't really advertise much, but I wanted to give a shout-out to two phenomenally talented friends of mine. But I don't know who to talk about first..........

Tossing a coin here.......

Okay, first up is my amazing friend Mark Brown, who's show China -- the Whole Enchilada opened last night as part of the NY International Fringe Festival. It is an astonishing show - by turns a funny, slapstick, irreverent, and serious 90 minute romp through 5,000 years of Chinese history. The tickets are a bloody $15 for a show that you will absolutely love! Go see it -- NOW! And not for nothing, but Mark has ANOTHER show running simultaneously off-Broadway -- Around the World in 80 Days, based on the Jules Verne novel. I've seen this show several times in various incarnations (it's played everywhere) and it is simply fantastic!
Next up is my EQUALLY amazing friend, Danielle Dayen, writer and photographer extraordinaire, who just put up her FamousRed Etsy shop of her gorgeous note cards featuring her photos of the wildflowers of Transylvania. This remote area of the world is one of the last places where there is little agribusiness happening, meaning that there are blissfully few pesticides in the environment. This lack of poison gives the wildflowers free reign to grow as they wish and blossom for Danielle's camera to capture. Which she does. Check out her site and start drooling....

Thanks Subway Hooker! I'm happy to take second place to the uber-talented Mark Brown. The man writes PLAYS for heaven's sake!

Those cards are beautiful! I'm going to bookmark her page for when I'm in need of cards.

Muchos gracious, Hooker. And there will be no second place taking from Transylvania. Those cards are amazing!
