String player AND Actor? I Want You!

I'm starting a new film project if I can find a few essential elements. First, I'm looking for an experienced feature film producer who is passionate about classical music. Second, she or he needs to be skilled at putting together pre-sales for a medium budget film.

That's the easy part. The film is going to be about the musically and personally intertwined lives of four people who are forming a string quartet. Everyone will need to be a world-class string player, able to act convincingly in English, (more)

and willing and able to spend the time necessary to create a real string quartet, as well as take the month or two filming will require. A passion for Beethoven 131 is a plus. Feel free to post this on graduate music schools everywhere. I will be looking at both acting and musical tapes. Many thanks -

How Much Is A Book Worth?

Our favorite Italian restaurant recently sent us a note with the news that truffle season was upon us once again and we might consider coming in for a few grams of the freshly shaved fungi on our pasta, for a princely supplemental increment of $60 a garnish. Seems reasonable, in a way, when I discover that white Alba truffles are up at $3000 a [...]

This is extremely important in the realm of parenting. Most of us have [...]
