Six volumes, 4,347 pages, and on and off for 59 months: I have completed reading In Search of Lost Time. The first time around, at least.

An anonymous search engine optimization contestant claims that he will donate his prize money to the University of Maryland's Center for Celiac Research. That's worth a link in my book.

Danforth in dudgeon The makeup for Deputy Governor Danforth (designed by MaryAnne) is more extreme than I usually have to deal with, even in the 300-seat CenterStage theater.

The wig and the red robe come off for the gaol scene; there isn't time to redo my hair then, so it has this nice mussed matted-down quality, which works well for the agitated state that Danforth is in.

Felicity Huffman pulls off a tour de force of physicality as Bree, a pre-operative transgendered waitress and telemarketer, in Transamerica. A road picture in narrative form, this indie film follows Bree as she finds a way to integrate her past and future lives. The people she meets on the way have a whiff of the gothic, but the sequence with Calvin Many Goats, a Navajo farmer (played with understated grace by Graham Greene), is a refreshing pause. The script is serviceable; we did enjoy the remark of a hustling drifter who explained that he was a "level 4 vegan: I don't eat anything that casts a shadow."
