Ed Smyth will weave a bent-mind fabric of brain-twisted topics and micro-sketches as the featured performer of the “3rd Thursdays @ 33” series opener on October 18 at 7:00 PM at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls. He’s an intellect-friendly, upbeat, one-man vaudeville act for grown-ups with a silly streak.
Based in Troy, NY, Ed performs his “Geek Comedy Hour” regularly in coffeehouses, performance spaces, and venues throughout the northeast with bits like Wally the Happy Talking Neutrino, a Neanderthal with a primitive folk-song magic-bit Tom Jones act, a fresh dairy products sea chanty, “Vladimir Lenin Live In Vegas”, kazoo heavy metal, a Bronx gangster movie version of Snow White, warped history, the funk-o-licious pickle song, Micro Fun, and more. No politics, no mean jokes.

There are many ways of finding out the “Gematria” of a word,name or phrase. These different ways are called “ciphers”. They are all inter related. I will use the four base ciphers and the “S” exception. The English Ordinal is the alphabetic order. A=1 B=2 C=3..Z=26. Simply add the numbers together to find the Gematria of a word. The word “Fox” for example. F is the 6th letter, O is the 15th and X is the 24th. Added up it equals 45.

UNION ACTION ALERT: Castleton DPW workers with AFSCME Local 1201 of the AFL-CIO (those that plow the roads and operate the wastewater plant) have been without a contract or raises for over two years. While these Union members continue to fight for justice, we need to let the Castleton Select Board know THIS IS NOT OK and Local 1201 does not stand alone (and that Vermonters from all over the state stand with them). Please contact the Castleton Select Board today and leave a message for Selectman Jim Leamy. Tell Jim: “Jim Leamy, I am a working Vermonter too, and I stand with DPW Union employees. Fair contract now!”
