Shown here (R) is my Miditzer set-up at the New-York Historical Society from Sunday, May 6 at the Silent Clowns Film Series. I used the organ for the concluding program of the SCFS, a show of Lupino Lane comedy shorts, and it was a big hit. I’ll be using it again this Friday at the Paramount in Peekskill, NY – a restored movie palace from 1930. Will also be using it for 5 or 6 shows in June at MoMA. The SCFS program was a lot of fun. Kudos to collectors Eric Grayson and Paul Lisy for prints of some real rarities.
The Reel Baseball DVD continues to sell, and was written up nicely in last week’s NY Times DVD picks by Dave Kehr.
Last week I repaired one of the piano benches at MoMA. A couple of bolts had come out and its wobbling was driving me a little nutz. I contacted the mfr of the bench and got the “shoulder bolts” needed. My sacrum and that of Stuart O. will be safe for the preservation fest coming up there in June.
Will try to remember to get pics at the Paramount and postum here. Sorry I’ve not posted since March. Between April being rather busy work-wise, coupled with my disillusionment that very few people are checking this blog are the culprits. Will try to keep posting for those of you who do visit.
