Undeterred by the failure of Tina Fey & other 30 Rock scriptwriters to heed JBNBlog, here are some more fearless predictions. They are being sent out with the same bold spirit  as the memorable miss here in predicting  the series finale in Feyville would have no hugging (Seinfeld) & Lutz would be the Ted Baxter survivor a la Ted Baxter (Mary Tyler Moore). Who knew Tina loved St. Elsewhere so much? Though it does figure, Liz Lemon would know to fade away on a note spoofing the all-time where did that come from in series finaledom.

Onward, new predictions:

1. Orchestra London’s daytime for school audiences with DuffleBag Theatre later this month will be KO’d by labour relations strife. Isn’t it, as Jim Flaherty would say, all  Dalton McGuinty’s fault? The evening Feb. 27 show at Saunders is still on the orchestralondon.ca site . . . here’s hoping etc.

2. When Call the Office holds its June show celebrating The Cramps, Julia Hodgson & Aaron Simmons a.k.a. The Late Miss Mary Kingsley back in the day will reunite for the night & all will be terrific.

3. Among the honorees at the ACO Heritage London Foundation night on Feb. 21 at the EP Williams estate will be the performing space & impromptu gallery a 105 Clarence St., a SoHo gem.

4. Come the fall, UWOpera could well choose Benjamin Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia as its fall 2013 production . . . as an expression of artistic & human solidarity with victims of violence against women

Recent predictions & their track record (that in bold):

1. Meat Loat not likely to be back at Budweiser Gardens in 2013. Or longer. Unproven, but bet on it.

2. National Gallery of Canada will announce or confirm major acquisition of works by the late London artist Greg Curnoe. No official word has reached JBNBlog.

3. APK Live will rise again as APK at the Brennan’s site on Clarence St. Don’t ask me how this will work . . . but it’s great news. Yep & to judge by opening weekend, it’s working splendidly.
