- Plaque gives Rodney Dangerfield some respect in his native Queens
By Corey Kilgannon - Friday Aug 4, 2017
Eager to confer a measure of respect upon Dangerfield and upon Kew Gardens, Ballenas and some of the students at the school where he teaches helped get a memorial plaque made to honor Dangerfield, who died in 2004 at 82.Dangerfield lived in the neighborhood with his mother and sister in an apartment above what is now Austin’s Ale House, one of the best-known bars in Queens.The plaque, which bore the comic’s youthful image from his 1939 yearbook from Richmond Hill High School, lists three of his top film appearances: “Caddyshack,” “Easy Money” and “Back to School.”[...] listed are his 1981 Grammy-winning comedy record, “No Respect,” and his 1983 hip-hop single, “Rappin’ Rodney,” which, the plaque noted, reached No. 83 on the Billboard charts.“His mother convinced him to open a saving account one summer so he could save up for a football uniform,” she said, sounding like a Dangerfield joke setup.Joan Dangerfield, who lives in Los Angeles, said in an interview that her husband’s routines were certainly inspired by the hardship of his boyhood, which included juggling jobs such as working at a snack bar, delivering eggs, selling magazines, delivering groceries, selling ice cream and setting bowling pins and as a barker at a theater.Joan Dangerfield recalled that her husband used to joke about “’the time I was kidnapped and they sent back a piece of my finger to my father — he said he wanted more proof.’”

- Symphony Pride concert brings joy to LGBTQ community and friends
By Leah Garchik - Thursday Apr 6, 2017
“There’s a camaraderie,” said Asia scholar and journalist Orville Schell, glancing at orchestra members taking their places as we in the audience took ours.In early winter, in response to the passage of HB2, the North Carolina law that removed protections for transgender people, the orchestra’s administration canceled two concerts scheduled to be performed Wednesday-Thursday, April 5-6, in Chapel Hill, N.C. And then, on a “dark, rainy day in December,” said the Symphony’s interim director, Derek Dean, at a reception following Tuesday night’s very uncommon concert, maestro Michael Tilson Thomas; his husband, Joshua Robison; and their longtime friend Mark Leno came up with the notion for Symphony Pride.Robison and Leno would chair a concert raising money for five nonprofits — Larkin Street Youth Services, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, the San Francisco LGBT Center, the Transgender Law Center and the Trevor Project — that benefit the Bay Area LGBTQ community.The eclectic program included almost exclusively music written by gay composers, thumbnail sketches of whom were narrated by the maestro and displayed on monitors.Members of the orchestra — wearing rainbow ties and scarves — joined in at the chorus when McDonald sang “10,432 Sheep”; the Symphony Chorus stomped, clapped, sang and hooted through Meredith Monk’s “Panda Chant II.”Near its end, in a short video, keyboardist Robin Sutherland, violist Matthew Young and violinist Eliot Lev talked about coming out and the acceptance they’d found in the orchestra.Ending a performance that had been greeted with the excitement of a sports championship, the passion of a revival meeting and the spirit of a barn-building, Thomas embraced the intersecting communities of performers and listeners.[...] in an effort to break my addiction to late-night reruns of “Law & Order,” I am engaged in a long-term binge of watching “Oz,” HBO’s first series, which I somehow missed seeing.[...] considering the president’s environmental policies, he’s still doing that.When his girlfriend objects to it, he answers, Loopholes are an American tradition![...] it’s not the law, it’s the tax code.
