What should we talk about now?

Any suggestions?  

(New picture every time we ask that question from now on.)

    How to factor pot into our economic developments plans for small theaters.

  2. Michael Wheeler says:

    Not a bad idea. Apparently one of the ways that cops discover grow ops is through extraordinarily high electricity bills to power the lights…Theatres are already using similar amounts of energy to power their instruments, so they could totally fly under the radar. The gain in income could be offset by reduced productivity however…

    I think this plan would ultimately result in a deficit as all profits would have to be used for Doritos.

    What if we could get a Colbert-like sponsorship?

    Let’s talk about THEATRE CONTENT.

    Hello, MKP.

    What’s up anon? You have been conspicuously absent as of late. Have you seen any shows you would like to address?

    I've been a busy bee. Sorry.

    Okay, let's have a show of hands. What makes you wanna clamour for a theatre seat the most: 1) here-&-now topicality? or 2) quirky flights of fancy?

    How ’bout talking about the way the Heritage meetings are going?

  9. Michael Wheeler says:

    @ Anon: none of the above. stuff that is new, stuff that i never thought of, stuff that took enough risks that is has the potential to fail massively.

    @ Simpleposie: really well, thanks for asking.

    “Stuff that has the potential to fail massively”? That’s mighty big talk as we enter a semi-Depression.

    Have you got the economic model figured out on that one? Honest question.

  11. Michael Wheeler says:

    @anon: here at praxis, we don’t have it figured out by any means, but we do have a theory that we operate on:

    in a nutshell we hope to slowly, methodically, develop a reputation for creating work that takes risks. sometimes this will be successful, sometimes it will fail. it is our hope that over time people will come to see how we succeeded or failed at achieving difficult tasks this time around.

    we certainly haven’t reached that level of notoriety yet, and reviews still play a big part in determining the size of our houses, but eventually, from an economic standpoint, that is how we hope to fail massively.

    Whattabout succeeding massively? Don’t rule that out.

  13. Michael Wheeler says:

    No of course. The theory underpinning this whole debacle in risking massive failure is it is the best way to create something really fucking awesome.
