Current brain age: 30.
I’ve thrown SNDTRKS up on my personal webpage/info page on Blackboard, this program we use for school.  I look forward to scrutiny.

I’ve received a copy of Paul Mullin’s play “The Ten Thousand Things” from… um… Paul Mullin.  It’s overall concept is, naturally, fantastic.  I say this because it’s origin is the Long Now Foundation’s ideals, specifically the Clock of the Long Now.  After that it’s sort of a post-apocalyptic sci-fi in it’s premis.  It’s based around a small amount of people living in three realities: the present, six thousand years from now, and never.

Skipping the story and the dialogue (which is the only short coming of mention), a key factor in this work is that every night the play is shown, a single word is changed in the story.  This makes the production both organic in it’s structure and achieves (if in this alone) the goal of long-term thinking and change.  A small bit changes now, but over weeks, months, years, it’s a completely different piece of work virtually all by itself.  In fact, the copy of the script I received was entitled “tick 19” which (I assume) is a “counting” title, as every performance is a different version.

Anyways, if you have a chance to see it, I highly encourage you do so.
