Hi Diddle Dee Dee – A Theater (& further blogging) Life for me…

Don’t know if you are aware, but in addition to my work here on “i also went…,” I also do occasional side blogging for my pal Sabrina Miller’s site to promote theater in Portland, Portland Stage Reviews. (it’s true, i’m stepping out on this blog to write on another blog on the side — I’m shameless).

I just had another review of mine posted on there, for local storytelling phenomenon, Backfence PDX at their special appearance at Portland Center Stage.

You can read the Backfence PDX review I wrote here.

And here also are some previous reviews I’ve written for Portland Stage Reviews —

So now you know.

Free Tix Contest to SOLD OUT Backfence PDX show at PCS January 23rd.

So The Logo and Link to Portland Stage Reviewsthe story of how this blog got its name is coming (I SWEAR!); but first there’s a bit of breaking news over on some other social media to which I’ve been contributing, so I thought I’d break in here and let you know about it. Especially because there’s a contest involved with free tix for a sold out show. I KNOW, right? Right. Knew you wouldn’t mind.

So you know I have been a guest reviewer/contributor over on the lovely and talented Ms. Sabrina Miller’s site, Portland Stage Reviews, which helps promote theater, musicals & dance here in our fair, if sometimes drippy, city, right? (for a smattering of some of my writing over there, see here, and probably here too, then you might want to look here, and maybe here, also.)

And you know I’m a simply huge fan of Backfence PDX, our own local and live story telling event, right?
The Logo for Backfence PDXAnd that Backfence PDX’s second ever free show sponsored at the amazing Portland Center Stage Gerding Theater at the Armory this January 23rd, 2012 totally sold out in just under an hour?

Well, despair not: click this link here and Portland Stage Reviews plus the Backfence folks have a contest to win you Two Free Tickets to the sold-out show. You read that correctly: free, the nice price. To win, you have to come up with and share your best, sobby, sad, whiney Gas Can Story. I know all of you have at least a few of those in you that are doozies and could win. Yes, there’s a dear.

So go to it, folks. Now back to that post on this infernal blog’s name…

Hello, Wilkommen, Bienvenue & You Gonna Finish Those Fries?

Have a seat, if you wish. Relax, take off your shoes, hang out for a while, dude. You might check out those links and widgets over to the right, maybe the twitter feed also. And all those icon links for where else you’re likely to find me. Menus are up to the right, with more info and how thais blog got made under “About.” Lots of interesting stuff to check out.

Strange name for a blog, huh? In a bit I’ll be posting a piece on how and why this blog got its name.

Until then, click around a bit. Hope you find a some things of interest. But before you go… those fries? On your plate. You gonna finish those?
