It could have been just another late-afternoon pickin’ circle at George and Anita Goss’ house. Alton and Sue Watson, George Goss, Jim Keaveny, Roger Moon, Johnny Mississippi, and Dustin Diosdado sang and played. I played along on the Melodica.
There was beer, wine, tamales, chips and salsa, the makings of a campfire and a fine sunset to enjoy along with the music.
Songs and laughter echoed off the mountains, dogs were underfoot, and George and Anita’s daughter played and sang along.
Just another pickin’ circle except for the massive cameras, the film crew from L.A. and New York, and the microphones- lavs, an AT 2020, and a couple of shotgun mics. (scroll down for more…)
Last night was “opening night” for the Terlingua Las Minute Low Budget Production of Reefer Madness.
There was a reception starting an hour before show time- punch, cookies, chips, jalapeno gluten free rice flour munchies, and- of course- brownies. Given the subject matter of the play, I was wondering… but, no.
This was my first experience with LMLB productions and I was very impressed. The theater is intimate and comfortable, sight-lines are fine, the sound and lighting was professional and the show rocked.
The only problem I can foresee is that they’re gonna need a bigger building fairly quickly- last night was standing room only.
I’m not going to say much about the play except GO SEE IT! It’s funny, cute, and light… until it becomes surprisingly dramatic.

All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts… last night, I played a drummer.
In the last month, we’ve had a Japanese TV crew shooting a car commercial, a Dutch travel show filming an episode for Euro-TV, a French crew doing something, and the “reality” show crew is still slithering about.
Last night, another video crew was in town to film a 30-second promotional video for the Texas Tourism board. At the same time, a local TV reporter was filming an interview with the local District Attorney.
