People to Thank, and Room for You to Comment!

We will be putting up a sentimental, heartfelt thanks, probably Thursday, (I have a lot to say) but I wanted to get a little memento from the night up today. We will be taking two weeks to come up with a good ending based on the stories we heard/collected/shared. We will post that story on Monday Oct. 3rd as a featured article here. Meanwhile we will be posting scattering thoughts about the night, and work on how best to collect and present the creative work that the runners and robots did to help make the night. We will also be posting the race stats we collected. (As well as continue with the normal Here’s the Story articles.)

In regards to the final outcome of Robot Apocalypse the survivors made varying choices.

Back on July 30th Here’s the Story went to This Much is True: Sept 7th they’ll be putting on Interface 2.0

So this is another sad tale from the lost bag file. As time moves forward I realize more and more things that I’d had in the bag that weren’t backed up anywhere else. A cautionary tale to everyone. Don’t procrastinate. Write your articles in a timely fashion. Unfortunately due to my procrastination, I’m missing all of my photos and notes for this show, and for Words that kill. This show, is a particular bummer because I had some super cool shots.

Deanna and Scott are gracious hosts and good friends of Here’s the Story, so clearly, I’m always welcome, but I was specially invited to this show by Kim Morris. I first heard her tell at Story Club. She read a brutal piece about the loss of a friend and subsequently we’ve been running into each other at shows ever since. For instance, I saw her at the Tuesday Funk a while back. And I’ll be seeing her at our Journey to the End of the Night. If you’re interested in seeing her brand of story telling, you can check her out at Fringe Fest.

But these are the two kids I want to tell you about today:

Postcard from Yellowstone National Park to Here’s the Story!

We have been sending postcards, and we’ve been giving post cards away. Some for you to mail to friends. Some for you to mail back to us. Elizabeth Harper has sent us a ton! And famously we’ve gotten one back from Joffre Stewart.

Today I opened the mail to find a particularly special package. Here are the contents:

From the Chicago Moth Storyslam to Here’s the Story

I had the great pleasure of hitting Chicago’s Moth Story Slam last night and seeing some fine tellers hit the stage, and I stood in a swelling group of friends, some of whom I’d have never met without the Moth. I also recieved a super cool postcard to send to Elizabeth Harper of Elizabeth’s Crazy Little Thing! But…

Here’s the Story @ Collaboraction’s 1001 Nights

Collaboraction, is a fine company. And it came into my sphere of influence (them influencing me for the most part) by way of one Jacklyn Hosely. A wonderful girl, who managed a show for them a few years back.

I had the wonderful occasion to see 1001 last weekend and it charmed me as all their shows have.

They pull skilled people and let them play safely, they create magical spaces… anyway, I’m a fan.

From the Beat Kitchen To Here’s the Story!

I have only been to the Beat Kitchen once, it was to attend some friends’ fundraiser, they were working on an economic disaster play, they did a read through of the first half of the first half, which we were warned, “It’s not finished yet, this might not make it into the final thing,” and though they had twelve actors present a number of them had to double up. I remember it being sort of dark absurdest, and though I signed up for their email list, I wasn’t pinged when it went up so I can’t tell you how it turned out.

Looking over the Elizabeth’s poem I see that the Beat Kitchen didn’t cease to exist upon my leaving that night.
