Now, I have to change for the evening part of this business thing.  At least the tie came off, and I can be casual tonight.

Well, hopefully, the tie wasn't all you were wearing before you took it off.  ;-)

I've also La Grande Jatte.  A couple of times.

The first time I saw it was in 1997.  I had just finished playing for Sunday in the Park With George at Arena Stage, and had just started working in northwestern Indiana.  On my first day off, I headed up to Chicago, and the AIC was my first - and only stop.  It was raining that day, and I still remember all the umbrellas on the steps of the AIC.

When I entered the French galleries, I first encountered the aformentioned Caillebotte Paris Street, Rainy Day.  But I was there for there for the Seurat, so...  After making my way through a couple of hallways, I finally found the room.  Wow!  The ceiling in that room is a skylight of sorts, but since it was raining that day, the natural light was kind of dim.  However, after a moment or two, the light suddenly got brighter - the sun was peeking through the clouds - and the painting really came to life.  WOW!

I just stood and sat there for at least a half hour taking it all in.  And, of course, I cried.

I've been back a few more times to the AIC, and I always make a point to visit the Seurat.  *And there's that one piece in the modern gallery that's composed of pieces of wrapped hard candy in a pile in a corner.  And, yes, you are supposed/invited to take a piece to consume.  Hmm... And then there's that other piece that comprised of a penny from each year of the artist's life all lined up in a row.  Hmm...  In any case...

It was also neat seeing one of the "cigar box" studies in one of the other galleries.  -There's also another cigar box study in the National Gallery of Art in DC.

I saw the painting on my first trip to Chicago in 2003 when I was working for the Humanities Festival.

As for other favorite art and artists...  I'm another fan of the Impressionists.  -And I still regret not standing in those long lines a couple of years ago at the National Gallery in DC.

There's really not much art that I don't like.  Yes, there's stuff that I don't understand, but that doesn't mean I don't like it.  In recent years, I've come to fully appreciate the work of Rembrandt and other Old Masters.

But one of the things that fascinates me the most about art - well, at least paintings - is the whole "science" of paint itself - oil, watercolors, etc. - and canvas.  When I realize that something I'm looking at is hundred of years old, and it still is "here"... WOW!

I can use rechargeables, but they burn out even faster. I think it is time for a new camera.

I really liked the camera with the flat battery that lasted a month or so. But it got burns on the lens, so it is pretty much useless now.

In your case, just the OPPOSITE is true.  This month, you, TCB, must remain CELIBATE and CHASTE.


But I already do that the other 11 months of the year!

Did anyone notice the omnipresent Ford F-1 series TV commercials on all the networks over the weekend?

Matt Battaglia touting the F-1 series "super-doody" trucks!



Oh, I certainly noticed them! LOL!

Actually he has been doing Ford truck commercials for about a month or so...they seem to run a lot during Desp. Housewives.

Well, Jose....given all the advancements in science we've had, it may be possible for you, too, to be around more than a hundred years or so.

And I'm certain a little canvas and paint might be in order...

I don't know why, but I am feeling wholly out of sorts today.

I blame Jose.

But I'll bitch-slap anyone who wishes to stand in for him.

My camera took twelve photos before the batteries went dead.

DR Laura---

My DH used tons of batteries in his work and he recommends Thomas Distributing:
http://www.thomas-distributing.com/index.htm

Does your camera take AA batteries? They have some called AccuPower 2900mAh's (2900 refers to the number of milli amp hours) and PowerEx's, which have 2700 mAhs. They are both NiMH batteries so they don't have a memory effect like the old NiCAD's did.

A really good charger for them is also made by PowerEx, the MH-C204F. It treats your batteries well and keeps them alive longer. You pay more up front but it's well worth it in the long run.

It's important to charge them pretty quickly after they run down, and if you don't use them, charge them once a month to keep them in good shape.

PM me if you have any more questions for him!

Isn't there a Sharon McNight song which goes:

Blow me - kisses across the room
Eat me - out of house and home

I think it's from her CD "Songs to Offend Practically Everybody"

Hi Maureen.

The "Blow Me" has lyrics co-written by Richard Kraft, who is a film music agent I've known for twenty years.  The first person to sing the song (he still sings it as his encore) was Jason Graae.

Had a nice work session with Joan, but the whole process with her is just excruciating and the opposite of Merissa - we STILL need six or seven songs and we never move forward.  But the Kirby Tepper piece of special material is going to be very funny.

I'm now home - I'd jog, but there's a chance that Buddy Bregman is coming by to pick up his order of CDs - and I won't know whether he is or not until he shows up, so I can't leave.

You could try jogging in place.
