WTF??

Ok, this kind of shit really pisses me off. Someone actually paid 72.8 million dollars for that??!? What the hell is wrong with people? Intellectually, I get the idea of abstract art. Well, I guess I really don't. I may be culturally challenged, and maybe I should be ashamed to admit this, but before this article, I had never heard of Mark Rothko. I had seen some of his work at one of the D.C. museums (probably the Hirshorn and/or NGA), but not realized who the artist was. I had the same reaction then that I have now, "That's art?" Now, check out the feature on the NGA's website (click Rothko's name above). Some of the work under "early years" and even "myths & symbols" may not be my cup of tea or preferred style, but at least they look like something. Now check out Untitled [No. 4]. Am I missing something? It's a friggin' black canvas! Aye yi yi!

Ok, enough of that. I'm gonna have an aneurysm if I keep this up. Other stuff. Idol. Blake kicked ass last night. Unfortunatley, the judges & everyone else seems so far up Jordin's butt, I'm afraid she'll be staying & Blake will be going home. I don't think there's a chance Melinda will go home tonight. She's just too good.

I saw Spider-Man 3 last weekend and it rocked. I definitely think it suffered from Trilogy Fever, being 3rd in the trilogy, it was the weakest. There were several ways I would have done the movie differently (but they didn't ask me, dammit), but I still enjoyed it immensely.

And last, but not least, Happy Birthday to my friend Al, from New Jersey. You may have seen his wife's comments (she's Julie B) on this very blog! We haven't seen them in a little while, but that doesn't mean we don't wish him a very happy birthday! Have a good one, Al!
