anyway, i've got an intensely engaging and quite strange project coming up with the folks from holy sheboygan! they were tasked by lawrence university to perform in conjunction with a staging of the beggar's opera, but this isn't your grandma's opera. the opera itself is a crazy ordeal, being a satirical mockery of the traditional italian opera. its full of popular english folk songs from the early 1700s, most of them having to do with some nasty subjects. holy sheboygan's task is to reinvent some of the songs from the musical in their special brand of garbage folk to contribute to the subversive nature of the evening, and to perform them before and during the act breaks on stage. its gonna get weird, there's no doubt about that. needless to say, i'm looking forward to it!
