The Dude

Last night I went to Gustavo Dudamel's Inaugural Concert and Gala. Gustavo is the 28 year old new conductor and music director for the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Although it was a black tie event inside the beautiful Disney Concert Hall, they offered free tickets to the public by lottery. I was one of those lucky people who got to watch the concert by live simulcast in the Dorothy Chandler less that a block away.

The first piece of music that the Phil performed was City Noir by John Adams. This piece the third in a group based on the California experience. This 30 minute symphony was based on late 40's early 50's Hollywood film noir. It was absolutely wonderful. Dudamel was was so much fun to watch. His movement and facial expressions were so energetic and charming. At the end of the end of the first movment of City Noir he got this grin on his face because he knew that he had done a great job. This
picture above I took with a delayed exposure so you can really see his movement. I also like the picture to the left because you can see his passion for the music and his energy that he gives the orchestra. If you want 2 free downloads of some of Gustavo's best performances check out this website.

This scarf I made by my self and I will be adding a DIY soon.

This is a picture from a exibit about Joseph Beuys the "German Warhol". This picture is of the artist who was wrapped up in felt by his friends as soon as he arrived in New York. Then they put him in an empty gallery where he was stuck with a coyote and all he had was a cane.

The Jeff Koontz sculptures were also pretty amazing.

Brown Boots

Here are some pictures of what I wore today at school.

These are some great shoes I found in my mom's closet... Always raid your parent's closets, you never know what treasures they might have.

This is a great bracelet with watch faces that I got in San Francisco
