Archive for September, 2008


Went to the Mark Rothko exhibition at Tate Modern on Saturday – an absolutely wonderful exhibition. Especially the room with the Seagram Murals, they are breathtaking… you have to be prepared to sit with them though… don’t go rushing around. D and I stayed until we got kicked out, there were only a few of us left and it was a real privilege to be there almost on our own.

Also looking forward to the Francis Bacon at Tate Britain and the Annie Leibovitz at the National Portrait Gallery.

Thinking of

R.I.P Paul Newman (1925-2008).

Comedy date

Sarah Silverman over this side of the pond.  Finally.  I do have a gripe about the venue though, has to be my least favorite.

Just rang – tickets are £42 and £35 (somewhere way up high) – is it me or are those mad prices?  When did comedy get so expensive.

OK, I have a bit of a bee in my bonnet now – tickets for her New York show are on sale for between $35 – $65 – that’s a big difference.

Surfs up

We were just spectators, but it looked fun.
