Experimental, Jet Set, Trash and No Star: Donizetti, Fugazi

The Weekend:  

Gawked at New York Fashion Week.  These pictures are of fashionistas on the plaza.

Went to the opera, the Met's production of Donizetti's The Elixir of Love

Spent a lot of time pondering an obsession of mine from age 19.  I was thinking how important it is to pay attention to your early obsessions--the ones of your youth.  They are significant.

Walked into a gallery and saw a '72 documentary of Los Angeles made by a British architectural historian.

Went to the New Museum's not quite open exhibit of all early '90s art.  (The title of this show is my post title which is also the name of an album by Sonic Youth.  I'm reading a bio of SY right now) Decided I would not be taking my kids.

I also, during the big storm called Nemo, sang at Punk Rock Karaoke (a fundraiser for the ABC No Rio Zine Library) the crowd pleasing "Waiting Room" by Fugazi.

My Novel:  29,251 words
