The Look Ahead: Drums in Theaters, Disparities in Health, and Young Artists
It’s Monday. You know this. I know this. Let’s not tip toe around it. It’s that friend you just can’t shake. You know, the one who has never really been fun, but because you’ve got a history (what?) you keep them around. You take their calls. You occasionally have them over. A sad cycle.
Drum Corps at the Movies: 2011 DCI Tour Premiere
This is marching bands and all that comes with them. If you haven’t been, check it out. It takes an open mind to sit through three or so hours of choreographed marches and somewhat obscure music. Better to get a taste of it in the coolness of a movie theatre than find out in the heat of Summer, when the live show inevitably makes its way to Rice Stadium later on this year. Would I go again? You bet.

From the M.D. Anderson website: The Center for Research on Minority Health (CRMH) seeks funds to continue this annual Workshop which is designed to encourage research on the causal factors of racial/ethnic differences in cancer incidence, mortality, and response to treatment; as well as an understanding of the cultural influences, attitudes and behaviors that affect the general health status, cancer diagnoses, health care treatment, and clinical trial participation of ethnic minorities and medically under served populations.

Hear Ye! Hear Ya! – Houston Young Artist’s Concert at Miller Outdoor Theatre
Make an early lunch of it. Sure it’s slightly warm outside. If you’ve lived in Houston longer than a week, you’ve realized that the higher quantity of visible sweat is as much a badge of honor, as it is a reminder to always have an extra shirt. It’s the Houston area’s most talented young musicians showing off their skills—we’re talkin’ virtuosos. The kind that make our cubicle lives seem underachieving. Then again, maybe it’s a reminder that we ought to make the most of our time outside of said cubicles.
