Re: “Revery breathes new life into Greenwood's restaurant scene

I am wondering if we even ate at the same restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere were sub par to all the hype. We went on the Nuvo recommendation and were so dissatisfied with the experience we will never go back. You only get once chance to make a first impression. They should have been on top of their game as this was their first week not batting from the bench.

Re: “The Asylum House might put you in one

Steve Stephens is an ex-employee whom (after he was fired) tried to build his own haunt and couldn't even get that to work, so he is trying to ruin The Asylum House's reputation. Steve now works for another haunted attraction and has left multiple negative reviews (saying basically the same thing) on any post or webpage that says anything about The Asylum House.
As you can see from Nuvo's review, The Asylum House received 5 STARS from Nuvo and Steve Stephens' childish comment should not color your view of that haunt.

Re: “Review: NoExit's Danny and the Deep Blue Sea

The play was performed site-specific in this gorgeous penthouse in downtown Indy with an amazing view of the city. Already, the juxtaposition between where we were, this exquisite location, and the characters who (at the beginning of the play) are ugly damaged, mean people was extremely effective. The setting and site-specific nature of it rendered it so intimate, so real, and the act of moving with characters really kept us enthralled, we felt very much involved as an audience without being played against by the actors which was nice. On top of this the play almost seemed like it was meant to move like this it felt very cohesive with the script and the intention. And then there were the actors who put on an absolutely phenomenal performance. Despite being inches from the audience they never once lost their focus. They were firmly planted in the world of the play the whole time. They were so connected, it was like watching electricity, action, reaction, action, reaction. Totally natural and on point just bouncing the energy back and forth between each other the whole time. The best part was how fearless the actors were, they took their time with even the grittiest moments they were really living the action of the play. Their entire being was focused on living these moments together. It was really interesting because the two actors are actually married in real life which I'm sure helped them to be even more fearless with each other although I'm sure that brought entirely different challenges in playing against each other in the show. It's just that everything came together so seamlessly and cohesively, the setting, the writing, the acting, the direction, and the site-specific character. It was really phenomenal. It really brought into focus what is magic about theatre as an art-form in this age of film. I feel that's what we need to be doing is exploring what makes theatre special and great and trying new things to let those things shine. In the effort to survive and not completely die out I feel that many theatres are trying to create work that is more and more like a movie because they know that people love movies or on the flip side are clinging to tradition like a life-raft and so they get stuck in a rut of always doing the same kind of plays over and over again but that is not what is going to revitalize theatre, this is. Exploring and emphasizing what is special about this art form and what makes it just as important and as strong as film is what we need to do to keep it alive and I feel like this production did that. It was magic because we the audience were inhabiting the same place and the same moment as the actors, anything was possible, anything could happen. A play is different every time cause the audience is different everytime and the audience is part of a play. As an audience we enter into a contract with the actors, we are going to agree to go here with you, to believe with you that this is happening right now in this room. We are going to suspend our disbelief. And that's what is magic about theatre and sets it apart from film and all other art forms. That makes it special. We, the audience, suspend our disbelief and live these moments with the actors. This performance of Danny in the Deep Blue Sea was the perfect example of that magic. We need to redefine theatre as something very much alive and real and start eradicating some preconceived notions and the way this play was executed reminded me of all of this and lit that fire inside of me again. This is why I love this art form. This is why I love theatre

Re: “The Asylum House might put you in one

Having been to this haunt in its glory days it sickens me to see what it has become. To raise the price above $20 for this attraction didn't leave me change to buy Pepto Bismol to stop the nausea caused by the lack of top notch, extreme actors and sets that used to be " The Asylum House" of German Park days. Do yourself a favor and visit ANY other haunted attraction ANYWHERE beside this atrocity !!!!

Re: “Stop whining and vote

Well, now, this is among the stupidest essays I've ever read. I'm an active member in the fastest growing, ever expanding Election Boycott Advocates movement. There is nothing anyone can do from within the voting booth that will move us closer to what the public wants and seeks from government. The Choices are very narrow and controlled. The people are mere pawns in the meaningless electoral charade. The real power is in policy and ordinary citizens are excluded from the policy table. For more, I invite readers to visit ....because, after all, "No matter who wins, the working class always loses."

Re: “Your kid and my kid are not playing in the pros

We all come from different places in life. My parents never even considered getting involved in organized youth sports. We played with the other kids in the neighborhood.
I remember going to the park many times and watching the other kids play little league and learn how to play baseball. I envied them having their fathers involved in their lives.
Sometimes now I wonder if my father cared more than we were aware of. He let us be ourselves and learn to interact with others with no adults around. We policed ourselves and helped each other. I thought I was missing out on something but I think the freedom we had has helped us think critically and be resourceful independent people.
I do think we needed more involvement from our dad so there must be a balance some where. I think because of my upbringing I wanted my kids to do every organized activity they wanted to do. And we did! Baseball, hockey, soccer, basketball. I think it has gone too far the other way, kids need time to interact with each other with no adults around hovering over them. About a holler away is a good distance!

Re: “Your kid and my kid are not playing in the pros

My wife just forwarded me this article, and I am not sure why. Our kids are mid level players on lower level "select" soccer teams. No one in our family, certainly not our kids, think they are anywhere near pro quality. Instead, our kids play soccer to get some exercise (our reason) and to have fun (their reason). We regularly miss games and tournaments due to family activities. So, why did she send it to me? Maybe so we can have a private laugh at the parents who believe their kids will get a scholarship some day???

My problem with the article is that everyone's dreams are based on long odds. My entering class in a very top law school school had 140 seats. Many aspiring lawyers didn't make it. Most of my friends did not. Some went to lower rated law schools, others followed their interest in government and obtained Master's degrees in public administration and such. But most are working in the general field of law, politics and government. The desire to get into law school still propelled them to similar successfull careers.

Turning back to the subject, if I was to guess at possible careers for my kids (now in middle school), while the MLS is not in the picture, being a high school PE teacher or coach certainly would be. They love the sport and want to continue it at some level.

Re: “Review: ISO presents Mozart's Requiem

Actually two of the suspended mikes do provide electronic hall "enhancement." With as full a house as last Friday's, the sounds would have been much drier without that "help."

Re: “Review: ISO presents Mozart's Requiem

The trombone soloist for the "Tuba Mirum" was Blake Schlahbach. Additionally, there isn't a "sound system." The microphones on stage are simply for recording purposes. They do not provide amplification.

Re: “Beer Buzz: Great American Beer Fest results and lots of events

Well, Sarah, while Sun King did win gold and Silver in the Wood-and Barrel-Aged Strong Beer style at the 2014 GABF, they didn't "sweep the style" since bronze was awarded to Town Hall Brewery from Minneapolis, MN.

"sweeping" implies winning all medals in a particular category.

Oh, and the judges' comments from GABF pale in comparison to the comments entrants receive from a BJCP sanctioned competition.
