How great would it be to get Werner Herzog to narrate Black Box Theater TV? The only answer is, it would be f'ing AWESOME! The man should narrate everything. Imagine Werner Herzog as the voice of ALL the Keebler Elves...my dream.
SO, here we are on the tail end of the campaign and my new found appreciation of Mr. Herzog aside, all things are progressing nicely. Thank you all once again!
Since we are past the halfway mark, I am pleased to announce our first artist in residence is E.M. Burkhard. A veteran of the theater world having pretty much done it all, acted, directed, produced and written. She has lent us some of her favorite work and we're excited to be bringing them to you. By day, she is an award winning commercial television producer. She swears advertising is nothing like Mad Men. Unless by mad you mean really angry and really crazy. By night, she is a cat wrangler and student of Lithuanian cinema (look, SOMEONE has to study it). Thank you to E.M. for being our inaugural voice. Hopefully, by the next update there will be enough in the register to announce our second artist in residence. I'll give you a hint...it is NOT George Bernard Shaw. One artist down, two to go.
Listen, all joking aside, thank you all very much. It really does take a village to create anything these days and it is through the kindness you all have shown that allows people like me to do what we do. So thank you.

Rufus approves. We are contemplating tattooing "Thug Life" on his belly. It's Willamsburg, they will tattoo anything over here.
