ONE MONTH ON: VGG NEWS ROUNDUP
So what's happened since last we talked?
*We wrote two mostly new shows: "I Know How You Take
Your Coffee," a murder mystery, and "The Charles Rempel
Memorial Show," a tribute to Charles, who is dead (in
the show). See below for info on when and where you can
see the new shows.
*Accolades continue to pour in for Furniture Porn
<http://www.vgg.com/vgg/FurnPorn.html>. CMJ (the
College Music Journal), the
prestigious arbiter of taste in the indie/college-rock
world, reviewed Furn Porn in their Kurt Cobain-bedecked
March issue, so our inboxes have been filled with
congratulatory emails from rockers. To which we say to
them: "You kids and your crazy music. Doncha know it
all went down the crapper when Loggins and Messina
*Yes, we're kidding. We hate Loggins and Messina, too.
But we looooove Slashdot <http://www.slashdot.org>, a
"news for nerds" site that sent a bunch of visitors to
Furniture Porn earlier this month. Just about blew up
the server, too. Say, that reminds me.
*We got a new server. It's in Rob's house, and it's
kind of up now. Look for a zippier Van Gogh-Gogh site
coming real soon to a browser near you.
*And, you may have noticed, we got a new way of sending
out THE THEO REPORT. Any problems with it? Email us at
email@example.com and let us know.
MARCH SHOWS IN THE WORKS
As the old saying goes, March comes in like a lymph
node and goes out like a Van Gogh-Gogh show. Or maybe
it's starve a March, feed a Van Gogh-Gogh show.
Regardless, the fact remains that we've planned two
shows for late March, and we want you at one or both of
them. You have been warned.
These shows are gonna be a special treat, because
they're the debut performances of not one but TWO new
shows! Come out to one of the shows, and you'll see
BOTH "I Know How You Take Your Coffee" and "The Charles
Rempel Memorial Show." Two, two, two shows for one low

WE'RE GOIN' TO BE STINKIN'
The Van Gogh-Goghs are tickled a slightly more girly
shade of pink than normal to have been chosen to be one
of the "Showcase Troupes" at the fourth-annual Big
Stinkin' International Improv and Sketch Comedy
Festival in Austin, Tex. What does it mean to be a
Showcase Troupe? Search us, we're just happy to have an
excuse to return to Austin. Maybe this time we'll
actually go to the O.Henry museum.
We're not sure when exactly we're going to be
performing (hopefully, we'll know by the next Theo
Report). But if you know anyone in Austin (or if you
are anyone in Austin), tell 'em about us and plan to be
there when we're on stage. You can get the latest news
on the festival at <http://www.bigstinkin.com/>.
OK, THAT'S ALL
Thanks for reading all the way down here. You're the
best. We mean that. Got any comments? Zap 'em to
firstname.lastname@example.org. See you next month.
