The BeagleSword was “Fragments.”
The rabbit hole was “transport.”
Next week the wizard will give you
an update on campus construction.
Things are good.
I'll meet you in the rabbit hole.
Naming the Theater
as many votes as Chris and Dave
“number 1 [Chris and Dave] is whimsical,
number 2 [Lenhard Murray] rings” -Karen Young
“A wonderful place to slay dragons – or invent them.”
– Orvis Melvin (of Scarborough Renaissance Festival)
“People will be asking for years to come
‘who is Lenhard Murray?’ -Dave Adams
Those who voted for “Chris and Dave” left 3 times as many comments. They seemed to feel quite strongly about it:
“The Chris and Dave Windmill Theater sounds so much more inviting and friendly… two characteristics, which based on your Monday Morning Memos, your school exemplifies.” -Jamey Deen
“It’s more personal/real and creates more of a desire to hear the story of 'who is Chris and Dave?'” -Wendy Clark
“I like 1. better because it makes me wonder who Chris and Dave are. The second name sounds like a theater that I might hear about in some other place, in some other town. Chris and Dave, though…. they sound like giants. Like Bill and Ted.”
– Kevin Koym
“Lenhard Murray sounds like the leader of a Polka band who plays the accordion … BADLY. The Chris and Dave Windmill Theater is clearly the ONLY choice.”
(You've got to admit the Bill and Ted argument is pretty convincing. – Indiana)
Lenhard Murray will be the official name, much like “Loop 1” is the official name for “MoPac,” the north/south corridor through central Austin. All the signs say Loop 1. All the people say MoPac. Pennie and I had lived here for 2 years before someone finally told us the name stems from the Missouri Pacific railroad tracks that occupy the center median.
I expect this
to become campus trivia in years to come:
“Who was Lenhard Murray?”
“Why do they call the Lenhard Murray Theater the Chris and Dave?”
And then they'll check to see if there's a ChrisAndDave.com
“Not that there's anything wrong with that…” – Jerry Seinfeld
