    This video is not playing for me. The arrow goes white, that’s all. Let me see if I can find it on YouTube. (Not sure if this is an issue with the new Firefox, or a YouTube issue.)

      It plays for me. I’m using FF 3.5, too. Do other videos on the site play correctly?

    *Now* it’s playing. Beats me (I was having problems on another site this morning & ended up opening it in Safari, so I suspect some kink with Apple computers in the new FF). I found and watched ‘Reticent Sonnet’ on YouTube and loved the combination of the contact improv type of dance and Carson’s as ever tongue-in-cheek very smart poetry… watched a few of the pronoun series & will sub to Playgallery and so I thank you.
