1. I had no idea the Sydney Opera House was terrible, acoustically and logistically, for opera.

2. An 82-year-old composer who worked nights as a security guard so he could have days to compose is finally having his opera performed.

3. Have we all seen the new Star Wars trailer? I don’t know what the thing is at about 1:30 but I haven’t felt this way about a film creature since I saw an Ewok. (I LOVE IT AND TAKE MY MONEY!)
