  1. Just because everyone in the world knows Diana Ross, and most people know Mary Wilson, a thread to honor: Florence Ballard.
  2. "Arthur Was Always Different": Reflecting on Ashe's Legacy, 50 Years after U.S. Open Win" by Ava Wallace on washingtonpost.com I remember pulling for Jimmy Connors in the 1975 Wimbledon Finals - had I only known better ... I am *so glad* Ashe won that match, and it took a lifetime of living (not just being a tennis player) to understand *why* I'm so glad Ashe won.
  3. Does anyone know if they're painting the dome of the Jefferson Memorial? I've noticed that, for the past X number of months, the dome has changed in appearance - the individual blocks are much more discernible than they were a few years ago, and the dome appears to have taken on a darker hue. Today, I noticed a white band (a very large white band) of what appears to be paint.
  4. I watched this film recently, and enjoyed it while at the same time, thought it didn't represent what I "normally" think about Alfred Hitchcock as a Director. A friend and I recently watched Hitchcock being interviewed, and he acknowledged (at that time) that this was his favorite film, and we figured out he was referring to "in terms of technical, cinematic aspects" - remember, this is the era of "Citizen Kane" (1941), which seems very dated, and in parts almost boring, but in the early 1940s, some of the cinematic devices used were groundbreaking, and Hitchcock was undoubtedly proud of incorporating modern cinematographic technique into "Shadow of a Doubt. I'd like to jump up-and-down, screaming, 'Watch 'Shadow of a Doubt!'", but I recommend this film for people wanting to peel a layer off of Hitchcock's media-bound reputation, helping to expose him for more of an avant-garde director than he's given credit for being - no, Hitchcock isn't avant-garde but the man wasn't some formulaic weaver of yarns, either - he had plenty of tricks up his sleeve, and used them.
  5. One of the gems of Iowa, the 1943 Jackson Pollock oil-(and casein)-on-canvas painting, "Mural," is prominently on display in the Getty Center through June 1, 2014. I was just at the Getty Center a few days ago, and this is the first thing I sought out. If you click on the link in the previous sentence, you'll find all you need to know. If you're in the Los Angeles area in the next month-or-so, it's worth all the trouble (considerable trouble: driving down to untold depths of the parking lot, taking an elevator out of the mine shaft, riding the tram up the mountain, getting over your awe at the marble splendor that awaits you when the doors open, suffering through bad food at the cafe, walking westward through an entire complex of beauty, and then doing it all in reverse when you're finished). Even if you don't love "Jack The Dripper," this painting is worth the destination (not trip; destination) to the Getty Center, with it's $15 parking (but free admission). It is appropriately displayed, with galleries of information delighting the viewer, and leading into the final gallery with the painting majestically perched on the far wall. Use it as an excuse to visit this magnificent complex. There are so many things to marvel at here, that this one painting is worth the fixation, even if you don't want to see it. Bravo, Getty Center, for being one of our nation's greatest artistic and architectural treasures.
