Dreamland Tonight, the next episode

I don’t know that it warrants a whole new post, but I wanted to let you know that the pieces are falling into place for the next episode of Dreamland Tonight. The show, which will take place at 8:00 the evening of Friday, May 7, will feature local professional wrestling coach Bash Boulder, the folks behind the Ann Arbor Skatepark, the one-man arts community of Ann Arbor known as Forest Juziuk, performing as Skate Laws, a special appearance by Ypsilanti’s Manhole, and a whole bunch more.

And, speaking of a whole bunch more, we’re planning to roll out a new segment this time called Community Show and Tell, so, if you have something interesting around the apartment that you’d like to talk about, be sure to bring it with you. And we really don’t care what it is, as long as it has personal significance. So, don’t feel bad if you don’t have a lock of John Brown’s hair. We’d be just as happy if you brought out the t-shirt you were wearing when you first had your heart broken.

Oh, and it’s probably also worth noting that the good folks at Ann Arbor’s Community Television Network have watched the first episode, and really like it. We’re going through the paperwork and stuff now, but the hope is to get past episodes running on Channel 17 in the next month or so. So, if you live in the area, but are too scared to come to Ypsi to see the live show, there may be for you hope yet.

See you on the 7th.

[note: Credit for the Community Show and Tell idea goes to Linette. She proposed it, and we all loved the idea. Hopefully we can do it justice.]

    When I was in high school, my history teacher told me that, back in the 60s or 70s, she had a student in her class who shared something with her. It wasn’t a formal show and tell in front of a class. He just wanted to show her what he carried in his wallet. He pulled out what looked like a waxy brown piece of paper, telling her that it was a slave’s ear that had been in his family for generations. He carried it with him everywhere he went.

    The moral of the story is, you might get something that freaks you the fuck out.

    Professional wrestling AND skateboarding! If you threw in some strippers, I’d be in heaven.

    I once had to hire a private detective to follow my wife around. I could show those photos.

    I’ll add a “no slave body parts” note at the bottom of the poster. Thanks for the warning.

    You say no slave parts, but what if Steve Pierce wants to bring a whole white slave? I think that would be extremely educational.

    I can catch a gopher in a trap.

    Who exactly are the people “behind the Ann Arbor Skatepark” at this event?

    I talked with Dug. He said he’d come out for it, and I asked him to bring along whoever else he wanted.
