Awwwww....
Went to a pre-concert dinner with a friend and her family.....got an email the next day......
"My mom thinks you would be a really good mom."

Books
The Believers - Zoe Heller - It was pretty good. She also wrote What Was She Thinking - Notes on a Scandal
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows -reading this now....it's a little confusing, too many names...but it's pretty good, I just have no idea what's going on.

Movies
Mad Men - Season 3 - It's a pretty great show.

Music
Give Up by The Postal Service - Really good
Quelqu'un M'a Dit by Carla Bruni - That Mrs. Sarkozy can sing.
Narnia Prince Caspian Soundtrack - I basically got this for the song The Call by Regina Spektor. But wouldn't you know it, Disney has locked CD so I can't put it on the computer to put on the ipod. Mad mad mad.

Broadway/Off Broadway
Fences - This is an August Wilson play starrring.....DENZEL! It was quite good. I was tired so sometimes I closed my eyes and pretended it was a radio program.
Asylum - This was written and performed by James Braly and performed at Dixon Place. I had heard a story of his on the Moth that I quite enjoyed.

Art
I've recently joined the Whitney Museum and MoMA. And through mom, I'm a member of a bunch of other museums. I think I'm done with broadway for a bit and will now shift to museums.

Marina Abramovic - The Artist is Present - MoMA - This is the one where you can sit at a table across from her. There is a retrospective upstairs that's really loud and naked. There are real live naked people. In one exhibit, there is a (naked) man and (naked) woman standing opposite each other in a doorway. If you want to get into the next room you have to pass through this doorway (or the other doorway on the other side of the exhibit) I made myself go though the naked doorway, boy did I have to get myself psyched up. Oh art.

2010 Whitney Biennial - Whitney Museum - It's a lot of stuff. I've been twice and sort of run through it. That's the beauty of being a member, you don't have to see it all in one shot. You can go back whenever you want.
