I first heard the sentence
No matter where you go, there you are
in the movie Buckaroo Banzai (which has a longer official title, which I’m not going to look up right now, because I have other places to go).
Let’s see if I can find that quote from Buckaroo Banzai on YouTube:
Not only did I find that clip on YouTube, I discovered that lots of other people around the world love that quote and that movie. That clip also includes other quotes I like:
Is someone out there not having a good time?
Is somebody crying, out there, in the darkness?
What’s your name? Who cares? I care.
Don’t be mean. We don’t have to be mean.
Anyway, it’s time for us rejoin the adventures of Ann Koplow across the nth dimension (where “n” = how many dimensions you think there are, in this universe).
Today, I am going to Worcester, with my friend Peggy (not Penny), to see Pat Metheny and his Unity Band/Group (which includes Antonio Sanchez, who did the amazing drum score for the movie Birdman) (and if you want to find out more about that score, you could click that link, y’know).
Where am I seeing Pat Metheny and his Unity Group/Band, tonight?
I found both those photos of the Hanover Theater on the Wikipedia website. The second photo shows the seats I occupied when I watched the “So You Think You Can Dance” tour recently (described here and here).
No matter when I go to the Hanover Theater, there I am.
Yesterday, I went some other places, and there I was.
I finally found a legal, free parking space (!!!!) and there I was, at Fenway Studios:
… where I saw my old, beloved business partner (and longer-time friend), Jonathan Stark, and his lovely wife, Jen.
Before I took this picture, I told Jen that I loved her jacket. When I asked if I could include their picture in this blog, Jonathan said, “Yes, but only if you say that my jacket is fabulous, too.” (Jonathan and I worked together, for many years in the 1980’s and 1990’s, creating marketing and advertising materials, including print ads and promotional videos. One of the secrets to our success was to listen to and respect each other’s wishes.) (So there you go, Jonathan.)
I took a few more photos at Fenway Studios, yesterday:
… but I didn’t get to spend much time with Paul and his amazing artwork. Therefore, I am going back there, today, before I head out to Worcester later.
Now, let’s see if everybody has been paying attention. How would you complete this sentence? “No matter where you go ….”
And here’s another question. Are you going with me?
Thanks to Buckaroo, Penny, Peggy, Pat, Antonio, Paul, Jonathan, Jen, Birdmen, cats, musicians, artists, and everybody else who ever goes anywhere, including you (of course!).
