And so it begins . . .

Welcome to my blog -- derived from the words "web log" for you more curious types. (Relax, I'm one of you. Make yourself at home.)
The genesis of this blog is a more or less weekly e-mail that I sent out to friends in the Denver, Colorado theatre community about shows that I had seen and would recommend, and other theatre-related information. And when I say "friends," I mean: "people who did not block my e-mails."
After a few months of receiving my e-mails, one of the the recipients (victims, injured parties, whatever) suggested to me at a party that I should start a blog. Naturally, I said, "Well, same to you, buddy!" Then he explained to me what a blog actually was, and I apologized for hitting him with a salmon puff.
Now, at first, I couldn't imagine that there were that many people who were actually reading my e-mails, so I thought a blog seemed a bit presumptuous. (Even for me.)
Around the same time, however, I started to have people come up to me at theatre events and such and say, "So, you're Brady Darnell," and they weren't following it immediately with, "Somebody call security!"
So, I sent out a query e-mail to my list about starting a blog, and the response was a resounding, "Yes!" contrasted with only one, "Seriously! I will get a restraining order!"

So, let the blogging begin! (Am I the only one who thinks that sounded dirty?)

I'm glad to see the blog online. I'll leave the techno-babble to Jeff and explain how to get people to subscribe to the feeds, etc.

Looking forward to more of your ramblings, er, insights!
