The Rocky Horror Commedia Show!! Tonight & Tomorrow!
It's not Just a Jump to the Left when you have Fools in Fishnets!!

Especially not when it's the second most risque show we have ever done! The Confused Greenies are going drag in The Rocky Horror Commedia Show, our musical spoof celebrating the *10th* anniversary of the tradition of the CWRU Film Society's Rocky Horror live shadow-cast, Voyeuristic Intentions (because it wasn't a tradition until its second year!).

Capitano Francfaroné has his eye (and some other body parts) on the young heroine Lesbia but she only has eyes for her fiancé, Virginio (yes, they do not yet know just how confused they are!). With Capitano throwing a party to distract celebrate the occasion of their engagement, his abused servant Riff-Rella convincing him of a certain kind of fashion sense that attracts Lesbia, rival scientist Dottore Scotiano's out-of-this-world paranoia, lessons learned from the exotic tap-dancing Columbina, and patchwork clad Zansylvanians it's bound to be a night you will not soon forget!

Join the Patchwork Players Parody Perversion for our very first musical production - at least if the foolish harlequin Arlecchino can get the songs right!

Two Shows! Both Free! Tonight, Friday October 23 and tomorrow Saturday October 24, both days at 9:00pm. Meet us in Nord Hall - and we'll take you somewhere special!

For more info, video, photographs, and a cast list, please visit: http://filer.case.edu/org/commedia/plays/2009-10-24_RHCS.html

And don't forget the Voyeuristic Intentions show on Hallowe'en, October 31, at midnight in Strosacker Auditorium! But arrive early for the Pre-Show De-Virginization Games! And thanks to the CWRU Japan Connection for letting us go on seconds after their weekly anime meeting!

See you soon - especially depending upon the Rocky Horror dress code!

"Dottore Who & the Three Locks of Time"
The Confused Greenies are ending our biggest semester to date with our biggest show to date - Dottore Who & the Three Locks of Time, a silly sci-farce that parodies any science-fiction we can get our hands on!

After a preview at Notacon 6 last week, we're holding three free performances in Nord Atrium!
Friday 4/24 - 9:00pm (tonight!)
Saturday 4/25 - 8:00pm (after Springfest)
Sunday 4/26 - 2:00pm (matinee)

Dottore Who has received a warning from his future self that the fate of the Multiverse is in peril! And somehow only Dottore's companion, the hapless harlequin Arlecchino can save it! Can Dottore find the Three Locks of Time to fulfill Arlecchino's destiny? Will Starship Capitano James T. Testosteroné thwart him just to prove he's the only protector this Multiverse needs? Will the Imperial Zanni-Troopers of the Galactic Generic Overlordly Persons ever actually hit a target? And can the green-skinned alien Companion Colombina keep her dearest love Flavio from his sudden but inevitable death as a Red-Shirt?

Only the Patchwork of Time & Space & Foolery will tell!!

Visual Evidence - photographs and video!!Collapse )

bike related stuff
So spring is here, and it's time to do more on the bicycle.

Can anyone recommend a good bike shop close to campus? I ride a recumbent, if that matters, and my shifters need some work - probably not more than a good thorough cleaning, but it's not something I've done myself before. (And I'd like to pick up some new summer weight gloves, but they have to be just the right ones... y'know, stuff.)

And can anyone recommend more general resources? Mostly I've been running errands on my bike, but I'd like to start doing longer rides. Hiking has been one of my long beloved hobbies, and what I'd like to work up to is a moderate ride, to a hike, possible overnight, hike back, ride home sort of thing. Particularly places with interesting flora and fungi. (Bonus for places without too much of a history of industry...) Basically, I want to do more hiking, and biking, but I don't want to do more driving. Of course, this all kind of makes it sound like I have a life, and of course in fact I do not. But still, it's nice to think about the life I'd have if I had a life.

Masquerade Dance & Carnevale on Valentine's Day!
On Saturday, February 14 - aka Valentines's Day - 6:30pm to 11:00pm in Thwing Ballroom - we (The Confused Grenies) are holding our first Masquerade Dance! Because how else can you make masked improvised comedy even zanier? Send them to a masquerade ball! And it's been a annual tradition since 2005 to perform at La Dolce Vita (the Italian culture club) Carnevale Celebrations, we invited them to join us this year for a combined event!

At 7:00pm we will be putting on a brand new farce of disguises, confusion, and meta-fiction (think a failed-play-within-a-play) called Mask-Taken Identities which might be our wackiest comedy yet! Right afterward will be other musical and performance acts throughout the evening. Later in the night the floor will be open for dancing!

La Dolce Vita is bringing a feast of food from Corbo's Bakery in Little Italy and there are various contests scheduled including a costume contest. We'll have some mask making tables set-up since it is a masquerade! Oh, should I mention the entire night - the food, the entertainment, the dancing - is all free?

So if you want to be romantic on V-day, we have dancing and fun performances! If you want to ignore this commercialized holiday, we have free food and fun performance! We hope to see you there!

The Confused Greenies present: "The Lady Who Was Believed Dead"
Buonasera, everyone!

The Confused Greenies will be holding an encore performance of The Lady Who Was Believed Dead on Saturday, January 31, 6:00pm at Amasa Stone Chapel. This commedia (masked, semi-improvisational slapstick comedy) was originally created by the greatest commedia troupe in history, i Gelosi, who were inspired by the same stories that William Shakespeare used for Romeo & Juliet - but this play begins with the tragic "death" (a fake funeral) and ends in comedy! Poster.

You can get a taste with these prelude scenes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFI-dBfC6v8

And in just over two weeks is our first Masquerade Dance on Valentine's Day in Thwing Ballroom. We are joining with La Dolce Vita's Carnevale celebration! We are scheduling performers in addition to our own original play. If you or a group you're with would like to perform, please email us.

Stay warm and stay amused!

Case in the New York Times
This? This does not make Case look good.

“So I take a picture of a broad, you know, a good-looking girl, and her name and phone number are loaded in my phone — I’d pay five bucks a month for that,” a male student commented, according to the university’s recording of the class in February."

On the other hand, I would have definately paid 2 cents to know when the next Greenie would be there. Also, love that apathy is one of the main reasons that students aren't using it.

Banff Mountain Film Fest Goes CARbonless this year!


This year, travel for audience members who come to the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Cleveland, Ohio, on Friday, April 11 and Saturday, April 12 will be made carbon neutral through the use of carbon credits. These credits will be permanently retired to the Clean Air Conservancy Trust and can be viewed at www.cleanairconservancy.org


To celebrate it’s 11th year, the local festival introduces a number of green initiatives designed to conserve, support and enlighten. Festival goers who carpooled, used mass transit, biked or walked to the BMFF can sign up at a large “Go Green” poster board and be eligible to win a Mountain Hardwear sleeping bag or a pair of Leki hiking poles.  Green raffles will take place each night: Friday’s will benefit Cuyahoga Valley National Park Association’s maintenance of the Towpath Trail and Saturday’s will benefit City Fresh, a program that develops neighborhood food centers. A literature table at the event will include free magazines, brochures and flyers devoted to recycling and Earth Day events.


In addition to the usual fare of adventure and extreme sport films, the 2008 line-up includes inspiring environmental films, such as Searching for the Coast Wolves, the story of an ex-world champion cross-country skier who devotes six years to the scientific study of the mysterious coast wolves in the wilds, Trial & Error, about mountain biking in the coastal mountains of British Columbia that are slated for clearcut logging and Badgered, an animated short that won “Best Film on Mountain Environment.”


The festival features a reception each evening and showcases different films both nights. Friday’s Opening Night Reception includes appetizers, beer and dessert. Appetizers are also served Saturday and on tap for both nightly receptions are complimentary Red Bull and Caribou Coffee in addition to exhibits for outdoor enthusiasts from 6:00-7:30 p.m.


The Banff Mountain Film Festival is brought to Cleveland by On the Edge Films and is sponsored by Cleveland Metroparks, Geiger’s, Spin, Mustard Seed Market & Café, Chipotle, Great Lakes Brewing Co., Cleveland Cupcake Co., Green Clean, Willoughby Brewing Co., Main Street Cupcakes, 107.3 The Wave, Cleveland Magazine and Balanced Living Magazine. The festival is held at the Allen Theatre at Playhouse Square Center, 1407 Euclid Ave. in downtown Cleveland.


Tickets to the BMFF, held at the Allen Theatre at Playhouse Square Center are $35 for Friday and $30 for Saturday and may be purchased on-line at www.theedgefilms.com or at Playhouse Square Center. For additional information, and film selections, go to www.theedgefilms.com or call 216-556-0016. Films are rated PG-13. Partial proceeds from the local festival benefit City Fresh.

Drilling for Natural Gas at Squire Valleevue Farm
Hey guys-- it appears that someone is attempting to drill for natural gas at the farm. Whats worse is that they are trying to sneak it under the radar leaving the farm committee out of the decision process. We are trying to get alumni and current students to write the university and ask to make the process public (or even state that they are opposed to the drilling). This is a space which is supposed (as expressed by the wishes in the will giving it to the university) to be available to alums, current students, and faculty for educational and recreational uses.

Creepy guy in Thwing and how to handle it?
Had an incident in Thwing yesterday that wasn’t horrible, but it was definitely uncomfortable and very WTF?-inducing. I’m wondering if anything like this has happened to any of you and how you handled it.

WRUW needs band submissions by July 15th
Monday April 30, 2007
By: Neal Dare Waves

WRUW is now accepting submissions from local and regional bands who wish to play Studio-A-Rama.
Studio-A-Rama, WRUW’s annual outdoor, day-long event is a great opportunity for local and regional bands to showcase their talent and have their music heard. Studio-A-Rama takes place in the Mather Memorial Courtyard, just outside the WRUW studios, on the campus of Case Western Reserve University, and typically attracts 800 to 1000 people. In addition, WRUW simulcasts Studio-A-Rama at 15,000 watts over the airwaves as well as on the internet at www.wruw.org. With WRUW celebrating its 40th birthday in 2007, this year's Studio-A-Rama is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet!

Interested bands should send a CD consisting of 3 or more songs to: WRUW-FM, Attention: Studio-A-Rama, 11220 Bellflower Road, Cleveland OH 44106. Submissions should also include a band line-up (full names please) and bio, band photo, website address, and contact information. Questions can be sent via e-mail to studioarama@wruw.org.

WRUW will review all submissions received by July 15th from local and regional bands who wish to play and have not participated in the past 4 years. All types of music will be considered, and musicians that have submitted music in the past, but weren’t chosen to play, are encouraged to do so once again.

Since 1982, WRUW has staged this free annual concert designed to thank listeners for their ongoing support throughout the year. An enthusiastic audience response during the annual on-air fundraiser enables WRUW to continue hosting Studio-A-Rama as well as fund live web casting and weekly show archiving.

Studio-A-Rama is one part of WRUW-FM’s commitment to broadcasting local bands live. The "Live From Cleveland" show broadcasts local bands from the WRUW-FM studios every Thursday evening from 10 until 11pm.
Studio-A-Rama will take place in the Mather Memorial Courtyard outside the WRUW FM studios on the Case Western Reserve University Campus. The Mather Memorial Courtyard is located at the corner of Ford and Bellflower Roads, one block north of the Mayfield/Euclid intersection and one block east of the Cleveland Museum of Art.
