  1. I recommend the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition now up through Feb 23, 2014 at the National Portrait Gallery. Some beautiful work...and it's right next to the America's Presidents Gallery...because those post-Civil War presidents had great facial hair. Added bonus: The National Portrait Gallery is open until 7pm daily, is a stones throw away from Proof, Zaytinya, Jaleo, Rasika, and Poste (just to name 5 places to go eat afterwards), and Metro convenient. Really it's a no-brainer.
  2. Is anyone else watching this? They did a season opening double show last night. It's charming, and I love the technical section of it. I can't understand about a third of what's said by the various bakers due to accents, but love it nonetheless. I'm less of a baker than a cook, myself, and enjoy watching the trials and triumphs of the contestants.
  3. The 2015 (15th) International Tschaikovsky Competition took place from Jun 15 - Jul 3, 2015, and is available for recorded streaming at this website. Piano - Violin - Cello - Voice To view all the contestants in all the early rounds, go to the website, then click on your instrument of choice, then click on "Replay." Every single performance throughout the competition is available, and it's a real gift that this is available for free streaming. --- The International Tschaikovsky Competition debuted in 1958, and is *the* competition that made Van Cliburn famous (with Emil Gilels and Sviatislov Richter defying the rest of the Soviet judges (when Richter saw what the other Soviet judges were doing - awarding Soviet players higher scores - Richter gave Cliburn a perfect score, and all the other contestants 0 points). Then, Gilels went so far as to approach Nikita Khrushchev and asked permission to award Cliburn first prize (remember, this is in the height of the Cold War, and Soviet propaganda meant everything). Khrushchev responded by asking Gilels if Cliburn was truly the best pianist - Gilels assured him that he was. "If that's the case," Khrushchev said, "then give him the prize!" This story is extremely famous and well-documented.
  4. I wonder why anyone has not posted on this show. Only two episodes have aired, and it's pretty fun to watch, as it is an Amazing Race meets Survivor meets Top Chef type of show. Twelve chefs compete (I think most of them are from Chicago, oddly) in two teams around the world, completing obstacles to obtain the coveted exceptional ingredient, and then compete in a cooking challenge. The weakest player is then voted off by the losing team. It can get a little Real Housewives-like drama, and the cooking, well, it's not as pretty as Top Chef, but there are some folks worth watching, such as the contestant from Table Fifty-Two and the contestant from Graham Eliot Bistro. Right now, it's kind of how Top Chef and TC Desserts started out - quite not organized, but I think this is worth keeping an eye on for future seasons, if it takes off, especially due to the travel aspect.
