|Jesus Christ Superstar on the darkest weekend in Oz?|
Although, I'm always cautious when I read about the stories of Job, or Jesus and how "going with the flow" turned out for them...if you get my drift?-)
"Larry Gopnik, a Midwestern physics teacher, watches his life unravel over multiple sudden incidents. Though seeking meaning and answers amidst his turmoils, he seems to keep sinking."
Writing this post now about "going with the flow" reminds me of the guy I wrote about in my post -
Going With the Flow in Devonport on My Last Day in Tasmania
who refused to "just keep swimming" and jumped to his death in the icy waters between Victoria and Tasmania off the same ship I had crossed those waters on the night before.
Reading about how that guy died will haunt my thoughts for the rest of my life, as the night before I had stood on the deck of the same boat staring into those icy waters and imagining the horror of falling, or jumping overboard and being left for dead in those dark cold waters.
My thoughts spooked me so much that I went inside the ship and stayed there for the rest of the trip in case the ship bucked me overboard with the help of the choppy seas swirling all around the boat.

Jon Stevens, who's songs don't really appeal to me, but I do like the songs that they sung when they were part of the
1992 'Jesus Christ Superstar' stage show and luckily enough for me in Hobart they sung those songs on stage, as well.

Security had been tolerant during John Paul Young's set and let the crowd stand and dance, but now with Kate's set they decided it wasn't happening any more.
But Kate told the musicians to stop the show and told the security guards to back off or the show was over.
I thought this was the highlight of the show, because there was this Mexican stand off for a while where you could see the guards mulling over the situation, and while not quite a "what would Jesus do?" situation for them I'm sure, they certainly had a dilemma on their hands and were forced to let Kate have her way to keep the peace.
I remember being very impressed by the balls Kate had to threaten the hotel security like that and at the same time being glad that I wasn't married to her ;-)

Jon Stevens even gave away his latest album on CD to everyone who wanted a copy to take home, which was a bonus on the night.
