Robert Lepage Brings His Magic to the Metropolitan Opera in NYC

Robert Lepage is bringing his brilliant stagecraft to the Met in New York with a production of “Faust”. I’ve seen LePage’s “Erwartung” and “Bluebeard’s Castle” and I thought they were exceptional, but he seems to be doing something really incredible with this production, as he intertwines the production with the voice and movement of the performers, so that the entire show interacts. You really want to read the article and see the video, so visit Techno-Alchemy at the Opera – Robert Lepage Brings His ‘Faust’ to the Met – NYTimes.com

I would love to see this show.

Six free downloads to fire up your Blackberry

itbusiness.ca has the run down on Six free downloads to fire up your Blackberry, including an RSS reader (Viigo), Google Maps, Facebook for the Blackberry and of course, a twitter client (TwitterBerry).

I have tried the Facebook app (it came with my Blackberry) and have preferred to simply surf to the Facebook site itself. But I recommend you try them yourself. Hey, they’re free! 🙂

movember: get your ‘stache on

If you start noticing alot of men wearing moustaches in November, this could be why:  Movember – Growing Moustaches in November.  It sounds silly, but it is for a good cause. As the site says:

“Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health.”

Now in parts of the world where men still wear moustaches, this might seem like an odd event. But in the countries listed on the site, I expect that most men don’t. Full beards, perhaps, but moustaches…likely not. Until now!

Spread the word….

Art Interiors has a fantastic selection of Canadian arts, and it is chock full of great art, from the many small pieces featured in this festival to excellent larger pieces as well. Even better, the women who run the gallery and the people who work there are wonderful people. How can you not go? 🙂
