Oldies: March 22, 1998

I got to see Rent tonight for the second time. If you haven't seen this musical before, I highly recommend it. It deals with the lives of several friends, lovers, etc living in New York City as they cope with poverty, love, race, homosexuality, drugs, AIDS, and death. The Chicago version is slightly different and much better than the on-Broadway run.

Oldies: March 19, 1998

I met Iwao Takamoto (the creator of "Scooby Doo") at the Warner Bros. Studio Store in Oakbrook, IL and got him to sign a silhouette statue of Scooby and Shaggy. It was very cool and he did a demo of his drawing ability. There's nothing like watching a professional artist make a familiar character come to life right in front of your eyes. I also found out today that my girlfriend and her friend are going to be driving up here on Easter weekend to visit me. That rocks! Hey, if you haven't experienced a long-distance relationship before, you'll never know what it's like to spend extended periods of time away from the person you care about.
