ah, yah…

December 13, 2006

woo… it’s raining… it’s really scary how warm it has been though… should be colder… poor polar bears…
so did that still life with commentator 5-day-run at BAM and it was great… lots of work and time went into it but it sure was worth it… also working with great people who believe in what they do and do the best is so inspiring… felt so lucky to be a part of it… and opened my eyes and ears in many things… wish we could do it again in new york sometime…
while we were rehearsing, went to this mexican place nearby BAM called pequeña quite a bit… think it’s on south portland avenue between lafayette and fulton… pretty much everything i had was great… it’s rather tiny so it fills up fast… also there’s this new burger place on lafayette called 67 burger which had pretty good menu… think 4 different types of veggie burgers… and curly fries were fabulous… it’s on lafayette and fulton…
watched “lucky # slevin” and liked it a lot… it’s worth watching only to see ben kingsley and morgan freeman sharing a scene together… they are brilliant… so were bruce willis and josh hartnett… very smart, well written script and refreshing editing… also really liked the set design… all those patterns on all the interiors…
haven’t gone to see any movies for an obvious reason…
what else…
oh, went to 2 exhibits at the met and they were amazing… one was tiffany exhibit and was jaw dropping gorgeous… so amazing how this guy was able to create something out of glasses… unbelievable details and textures and colors… he sure was in total command of his materials… then “glitter and doom: german portraits from 1920’s” was sensational… since i’ve been to modern museum in stuttgart, i became a fan of otto dix for his gritty, grotesque yet expressive portrayal and this show was full of many paintings like that… also they all had very political messages as well… was very impressed with george grosz and christian schad… somehow that period didn’t seem so different from what we have right now though… these people all saw the rise of capitalism and greed as one of the main reasons behind all the wars and conflicts… hasn’t changed so much, i hate to say… definitely going back to look at them again…
so much i’d like to do before the year ends… ah… only 18 days left… yikes…

  1. I saw “The Pursuit of Happyness”, I think you should see it! It is easiest the best American film of the year.
