Not really. And I won’t be tonight, although being bored to death, sad and lonely will be on my mind all evening.
I’ve mentioned that there were some trips to New York City coming up. Tonight’s one of them. I’m going to be at the Paley Center for Media, covering a panel discussion, Wrapping Up the Third Season of Bored to Death.
The third season of the sweetly surreal Bored to Death has brought more troubles to its quirky band of brothers: Jonathan (Jason Schwartzman) is framed for murder; George (Ted Danson) opens a restaurant; and Ray (Zach Galifianakis) discovers fatherhood. The Paley Center will preview the two-part finale, followed by a discussion with creator Jonathan Ames. Ames will discuss how he crafts tribulations for his characters with talk icon Dick Cavett, who also played himself in this season of Bored, welcoming the TV Jonathan as a guest. The duo will also discuss how New York City has become a major character throughout the run of Bored.
Fundraising appeal: As I’ve said, the plan is to make more of these trips. I’m going to be reviewing another play in a couple of weeks. More on that later. It would be a big help, though, if you could manage a donation to the traveling fund. I’d be much obliged.
Thanks to everyone who’s contributed to the drive so far. And thanks to all of you for reading the blog!
