Back Lighting

    Newer Older

    As I looked out to the sea of chairs, I saw a radiant glow of Dominoes shuffling into place....

    The chairs are monochromatic. The spotlights splash tint the felt fringe blue.

    And I come out and I'm giving and I'm giving and I'm giving and I keep giving and I give some more, and I make a simple request. I say, hey, could I possibly have a blue spot? But I guess the lighting crew feels they know a little bit more about show business than I do, although I've been in the business a few years and I think I know what works best. I'm sorry, but I am angry. I come out here and I can't get a little cooperation from the backstage crew? Excuuuuuse me! – Steve Martin

    Ack… Gotta prep for my talk tomorrow…

      This is a nice "dominoes" effect!

      What is the talk about? Perhaps you want to keep it secret until then.
