Victor lost his hipster-cache long ago (he's lasted a decade, and nothing lasts a decade in the eyes of hipsters). But his shows still attract sold-out crowds of townies and theatre-geeks, leaving the true hipsters to make the trek over to KC for the Fringe Festival, which features events such as "Lingerie Shop, an adults-only comedy about women in their underwear" (Pitch).
Chip: "Women in their underwear? Maybe hipster-theatre isnt so bad after all."
Bill Mayer's editorial in today's LJ-World is likely to get folks a bit riled up. Much of it is spent making fat jokes regarding Sherron Collins' recent weight issues (he's on the verge of being "fat and sassy," Mayer writes of Collins, who was recently judged to be "18-20 pounds too heavy for maximum efficiency"). But the best lines get saved for last. Mayer writes of the highly-touted Henry brothers:
"Truth is, Self and Co. can field a 10-man crew good enough to make the Final Four without either Henry. Not that these two can’t add a lot, but they’re going to have to earn the playing time they get. Daddy can’t talk them into that."
Almost certainly, this potshot will lead the Henrys to (once again) try to get out of their contract this week, as they do after every negative editorial.
Chip: "First off, we need the Henrys more than anyone has ever needed anything. Second, Collins really could expose himself just as well on the stairs as he could on an elevator. Plus, it's easier to run away on a stairwell."
