Wednesday==>We will get underway with a major HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout out to John Scott Reed aka Fabson, who celebrates his 28th birthday today.
As many of you loyal and faithful readers and followers know, Scott is originally from Lakeland, FL, and he has been a resident of NYC since right after he graduated from High School. A little over a year ago he made a major upward career move and became a member of the FacebookNY team. He is located in their office in the Astor Place area downtown.
Scott is truly living life to its fullest here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The Word, and I am so happy for him and proud, too!!
Now ... on to ...
Your favorite blogger’s report card on last night’s Off Broadway show ...
PHOENIX, a dark rom/com that hinges on whether or not Sue, played by Julia Stiles, will go through with an abortion (to be performed in Phoenix) after a one-night stand with the totally unfathomable and basically unlikeable Bruce, played by James Wirt==>C+
No matter how many times Sue tells Bruce that she wants nothing to do with him, least of all to be in a “relationship” with him, she keeps letting him remain in her life.
The story line becomes totally unbelievable in the last 10 minutes of the show and the poor actors can do little to resurrect it.
Billi Pod concurs with the lukewarm reviews it has received. His friend, Dian Crystal aka My Lady, was also at the show and she gave it a B-.
Bill Pod says==>you are hereby warned.
It is playing at the Cherry Lane Theatre in The West Village, has a running time of 90 minutes, without intermission, and runs through August 28th.
Moving on ...
Tonight’s entertainment event is an Off Broadway musical ...
8:00==>BAYSIDE! THE MUSICAL: The Parody of Saved By The Bell - “This parody of TV's #1 teen drama tackles all the tough questions: Will Zack and Kelly break up? Will Slater quit wrestling forever? Who will develop an incurable caffeine addiction? Will the gang save The Max? Will Screech die?” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)
Yeah, Billi Pod is in the mood for some comedy and this sounds just about right ... but ... he has no clue about Saved By The Bell ... so ... we will see ...
This musical comedy is playing at Theatre 80 on St. Marks Place in The East Village, has a running time of 2:00, with intermission, and the performance dates are Wednesday through Sunday through November 29th.
I am happy to report to all of my loyal and faithful readers and followers that your favorite blogger was able to record a good day of walking yesterday as he concluded his weekly errands and chores and stuff and also scored tickets to a Broadway show for Sandy Mullon’s upcoming Big Apple Adventure.
Yeah ... the mileage for the day was==>5.79 miles ... so ... you can all calm down because Billi Pod is back on schedule.
Moving on ...
Last night in Detroit The Yankees (68-62) lost 5-2 to The Tigers (71-59) who received a stellar outing from Rick Porcello. The loss broke our 5-game winning streak.
Tonight at 7:08pm is the second game of the 3-game series. On the mound for The Yankees will be rookie Shane Greene (3-1) vs. David Price (12-9) who was our longtime nemesis when he was with The Rays.
BTW==>Billi Pod Hates Tigers!!
In closing ... Billi Pod knows that a large number of his fan base out there in the boondocks, wastelands and hinterlands are basically Worker Bees who are stuck in their boring jobs in their boring work environments and that Wednesday is often believed to be the longest day of the work week.
He also knows that most of you feel lonely and alone at work ... so ... your favorite blogger did a bit of internet research and came up with something that may help you ...
You are so very welcome.
Total mileage for 2014==>959.44 miles (average 4.03 miles per day)
