Macbeth the Usurper

Rent

There's a trailer for Rent up on Apple's trailer site. We now know this year's musical!

It's scheduled for November. This means that it's an Oscar push.

I am glad that the musical has crawled back from the dead. I am even more glad that it's still a minor niche, and that studios haven't gone overboard in rushing toward the musical. The surest way to kill the musical is success, or Andrew Lloyd Weber. Sondheim tried, so I'll give him an honorable mention for aiding and abetting.

Baseball

We were scheduled to see a minor league game tonight, but Jen's brother, who's in town, is too busy brushing up on his PhD thesis defense. So hopefully, on Saturday, we'll see the Frederick Keys.

We had a power test over the weekend. It was nasty. It killed four power supplies on me.

I can't complain about work. There's stuff to do. That keeps me employed.
