So the 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?
And 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…
