Steve Earle ‘Coal Country’ VS Brie Larson ‘The Glass Castle’

I was pleased to hear of a show at Public Theatre with music by Steve Earle about a flood in 2010 in West Virginia. I still have a slight regurgitive pang when I think of having to read “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls for a class by Jordana Finnegan at Foothill, made into a movie I’ll never see starring Brie Larson who I liked in “Just Mercy”.

Also, kudos to Michael Krasny for his interview with Sting who has a show about ships and England in SF. He also interviewed Rupa Marya a year ago. Maybe we can read a complilation of transcripts of interviews he has done with musicians, like how was done for Studs Terkel.

Also, sort of apropos of all this, Rashomon and Stray Dog are at Stanford Theatre.

Hope to never see this. Ope to never be this.
