On Location: In Berkeley for ‘John Gabriel Borkman’

SSC On Location Video: John Gabriel Borkman at Aurora Theatre, BerkeleyClint and Loni head up to Aurora Theatre in Berkeley to catch James Carpenter in John Gabriel Borkman in this On Location episode. Who knew that Bernie Madoff’s kindred spirit was haunting people even in the 19th century? Or should I say: trying to “spread happiness and prosperity.” Ah, yes, it’s just a matter of perspective, and mental imbalance.

The show is still going strong. In case you missed it, here’s a link to Clint’s review (4.5 out of 5 stars), plus the interview with James Carpenter that everyone is talking about, at least around these parts. Don’t miss his awesome The Creature voice everyone. Not to be missed!

I should note that the other actors (Karen Grassle, Lizzie Calogero, Karen Lewis, Pamela Gaye Walker, Aaron Wilton, Jack Powell) are also very strong in this production. Loni wanted me to point that out, as we tend to go overboard (or maybe just Clint does) sometimes with our accolades for one James Carpenter. But, still, justifiably so!

Oh, one more thing: I think Loni’s found a new sushi hot spot (but apparently not the decor) just around the corner from the Aurora Theatre and Berkeley Rep. If you want a pre-show meal, check out Sushi California: review.

    If you think Madoff ran a huge scam, Amway has ripped off millions of people for several decades, to the tune of 10s of billions of dollars.

    Amway is a scam, and here’s why: Amway pays out as little money as they can get away with, so they support the higher level IBOs ripping off their downline via the tool scam.

    As a result, about 99% of IBOs operate at a net loss, while the top 1% make several TIMES more from their Amway tool scam than from the Amway products. This was made illegal in the UK in 2008, but our FTC is unable to pull their heads out of their butts to stop it here.
