Vou dar um rolezinho por aí.
Se conseguir fazer com que meu iPad se comunique com o mundo e com meu celular, conseguirei postar aqui.
Nos testes que fizemos, não está rolando.
Sempre achei que a APPLE é uma conjunção de estética com muitas ideias chupadas.
Encanta bastante, mas acho confuso.
Confio muito mais nos PCs, que são aceitos em todos os sites.
Mas bem que tento me modernizar…
Sou um velho.
Neste ano, andei aprontando por aí.
Lançamentos, relançamentos, filme, teatro…
Começou com MALU DE BICICLETA – o filme, muito exibido em festivais, pouco no circuito comercial.
Sim, já tem em DVD.
Relancei U:BRARI, de 1990, que reeditei, lancei CRÔNICAS PARA LER NA ESCOLA e duas peças ainda em cartaz no RIO.
O mundo não acabou.
Berlusconi já era. Mas Sarney continua intacto.
O crescimento dos emergentes desacelera.
A PM continua na USP.
O Rocinha foi enfim ocupada.
E descobrimos o ódio alimentado pelo anonimato da internet.
Então, vamos tocando. Boa sorte…
Aí, fotos dos ensaios da peça DEUS É UM DJ, que dirigi.
No OI FUTURO – FLAMENGO, RJ.
A temporada foi estendida.
E, claro, tentaremos trazer para São Paulo.
Vou dar umas palestrinha em LONDRES.
