Jam the single here, then go buy the record and hear all the new tunes live on Saturday. Plus all proceeds from the door benefit the excellent nonprofit Girls Rock Detroit. What more can you ask for?

Gentle reader, check out these slick maps showing the results of Ann Arbor's helicopter deer counts. As you can see from the map from March 6th 2015, it looks like 5 deer were spotted in the vicinity of Packard and Wells. Am I reading that right?

The 53rd Film Festival runs March 24-29th. It'll feature hundreds of films, videos, and live performances from around the world.
Given my personal propensity for computer-involved art, I'm particularly looking forward to the Computer Age presentations on March 25th (1953-1969, 1971-1987).

And I could go on about other things I want to see, but instead I'll point you, gentle reader, to the schedule to peruse for yourself.

Gentle reader, you should see Sebastian Gerstner in Theater Nova's Buyer and Cellar. It is a hilarious one-man show about an unemployed actor who lands a gig working in the fake mall in Barbra Streisead's basement. Yes, Ms. Streisand has a fake mall in her basement. Watch the clip of her promoting her design book on Oprah. Buyer and Cellar dares to ask: "what if someone worked in that basement mall?"
Sebastian does an outstanding job in the show. I couldn't help but feel like I was spending a lovely evening with a friend recounting his halarious story of working for Ms. Streisand. Beyond the great acting, I think Jonathan Tolins' play really does a great job capturing our complex feelings about Ms. Streisand: a talented performer who has a reputation for being a bit controlling at times.
Gentle reader, I can't recommend Buyer and Cellar enough. Theater Nova is doing a great job making a theater space at Yellow Barn. Also, tickets are pay what you can, so you really have no excuse not to go.

I saw that you decided to withdraw your proposal to build Michigan's largest solar array at the Ann Arbor Municipal Airport. Guess you guys didn't want to deal with the inter-municipal angst between Ann Arbor and Pittsfield Township. Well you know who would just love a solar array? That's right, Washtenaw County's oldest municipality, Ypsilanti. In fact, if you decide to put your solar array here, we can even add an extra verse to Lee Osler's classic, Back to Ypsilanti, about how Ypsilanti has Michigan's largest solar array. Just, you know, something for you to think about DTE.
