More on the Joe Flanigan photo project

Ah, more news on Joe Flanigan on this has come out of Fedcon. Quoting

 One thing however - I did ask Joe if he could give us more info about the twitter on Martin Firrell's site saying he was preparing for a photo shoot with Joe. Joe was a little surprised and said, 'News travels fast'. He then told us he's going to be photographed by Firrell as part of the Hero work, as 'Firrell seems to think I'm a hero, go figure') (of course the audience clapped their agreement).

He then said, his photo will be displayed in very big size on famous buildings in London. He hesitated a moment, then said 'I hope not on the sanitation building! Maybe Buckingham Palace, yes I'd like that!' As ever, Joes's sense of timing in his delivery of this answer shows what a good performer he is. Most of the other questions led to stories we've heard before - Jason mooning Hewlett from the car on the way home, Joe's uncontrollable hair despite heavy duty stuff from make-up during his recording of Providence etc

And if you visit twitter account, he's got some interesting tweets, so he's soliciting comments!

Depression, sadly, is a dirty word.

The mere mention of any variety of mental illness makes most people squirm, but depression is the one that proves impossible to understand unless you've witnessed -- or, God forbid, experienced -- its debilitating effects first-hand.

Three local companies receive NEA grants to help kids brush up on their Shakespeare


Remember those long afternoons in English class, plowing through "Macbeth"?

Well, Shakespeare is meant to be seen and heard, not read--which is why the National Endowment for the Arts created Shakespeare for a New Generation, a grant program designed to help theaters bring the Bard to life for middle and high school students.
