Thanks to Steve Vinik St. Gregory's E.C. has an excellent website . Today I discovered that he has also put four videos on YouTube which are also excellent. Please view them on YouTube and give them your rating to help lift up our on-line profile.

Monkey: Journey to the West, a newfangled sort of opera that made its American debut at the Spoleto Festival U.S.A. Based on an old Chinese tale, it traces the Monkey Kings search for wisdom and immortality with singing, acrobatics, martial arts and cartoon segments. It is circus spectacle striving to become art or maybe art infused with spectacle. Opera Meets Animation to Tell a Chinese Tale (New York Times)
Dan Dyer has written a little book called "Actions to Achieve Peace: What Every Citizen Can Do" (January 1, 2008, http://www.lulu.com/content/1769163).

Be sure to watch Skatopia created by my niece and her husband. This trailer has the highest quality I've ever seen on YouTube ! Click here to buy tickets for the World Premiere of "Skatopia: 88 Acres of Anarchy" in NYC on July 11. Their film was a very late selection for indy film fest ACEfest in NYC on Saturday July 11 at 9:45 pm. And they landed the best slot in the lineup: closing spot on Saturday night. They are thrilled, nervous and wound up trying to meet the deadline. The Tribeca Cinemas seats 100 and the festival says it will book another show if it's sold out. Help by coming if you can!
