She stared at me when she answered.  Blush.  Blush.

I'd say the ball is in your court.

'Just as artists are an engine for creativity in our culture, so are fans.  An artist on their own can make a work of art, but only fans can make it mean something in our society.  Fans take art and translate it into culture.  They invest in it, obsess over it, share it, and spread it to others.  They turn it from an isolated item into a means of communication. "

"If we want copyright law to be a vibrant engine for fan creativity as well as artist creativity, fans must be treated as equal partners in cultural production and not just as passive consumers of "artistic" creations."

You can do it Larry  ;)

I have limited experience with this sort of stuff.

I wanted to see 'Beyond Brokeback' on stage. I was able to get the ball rolling by putting the players together. Greg Hinton, Shawn Kirchner, and Bryon Heinrich would never have known about each other if I hadn't pushed my agenda to make these shows happen. There were copyright issues that were handled easily and at no cost.

After that, I stayed out of the mechanics of the shows although I was asked for my opinion a few times.

It's also scheduled to be performed as a chamber opera in Vancouver in 2015.

Thanks for the report, Larry, and for being there to represent!  I'm glad Annie was smiling and glad to talk about Brokeback.  8)

A bunch of our Brokies saw a play based on BBM in Europe, Belgium, I think.  Leslie (MaineWriter) went over and saw it.  I can't find the thread, though.  It was awhile ago.
