TBA Diary: Mike Daisey's All the Hours in the Day

Mike Daisey in hour 24

Arts & Books
Getting into Mike Daisey’s epic, 24-hour monologue, All the Hours in the Day, was a lot of like boarding a really popular Disneyland ride. Long lines snaked all over Washington High School, and I passed four checkpoints before even making it to the lines. On the way I got my left wrist stamped with a jack o’lantern image and a grey wristband affixed to my right wrist and my ID checked twice.But ...   More

TBA Diary: Another Mike Daisey Survivor

tba mike daisey all the hours

Arts & Books
It is a common trope that reading is really the only art that requires skill from its audience; this is one of the reasons that the audience for serious literature will always be limited, whatever the countless perky entreaties of high school librarians.

TBA Diary: Jesse Sugarmann, Lido (The Pride is Back)

Jesse Sugarmann Lido or The Pride Is Back

Arts & Books
So it’s 4 o’clock in the afternoon, and we’re all gathered round to watch cars crash behind the high school. These same three cars crashed twice Saturday, and they will do it again in a few hours. I’m not sure what I had expected, exactly, but I know I had expected something else; I had been told that cars would be made to crash in slow motion, and had wanted perhaps a giant game of popcorn ...   More
