In The Community: Montana On The Move, New Artists, and The Auction of Miniatures are up NOW at the Hockaday Museum of Art, but we're moving everything down to the Hilton next Friday to sell it all, and putting up a portrait exhibit in its place, including Larry Johnson's photos of local characters.
Dan Fagre's show has come down for awhile, but will go up again in May -- it is about the vanishing glaciers of Glacier National Park, and is a true labor of love by Fagre and other scientists from the USGS. Here's another website comparing glacier photos from the early 20th Century and recent decades.
The college has had many special events since I got back from Seattle, including Chef's Table and Lunafest earlier tonight. I spent a lot of hours turning tapes into DVDs this morning too.
Media Watch: A video of Jai Ho, with references to the original Bollywood dance in Slumdog Millionaire, only performed by the Pussycat Dolls, with English lyrics. I hope they aren't over-reaching. I prefer them light and humorous -- am hoping that the recent tour with Lady GaGa maybe made 'em a little goofier.
Trash A Go Go is getting fun, now that we're mostly outta the schlub-zone. I generally liked the results show because it was loaded with entertainers, more than I can name. The less I see/hear the group Celtic Women, the better I feel, but even THEY didn't overstay their welcome. I enjoy seeing new professionals, but making a contest out of the selection process doesn't please me. I knew Lawrence Taylor would go next, simply because he was so unenthusiastic. The cowboy and country singer can't last, because of their inabilities. I'm still favoring Cheryl and Gilles. It was terrifying to read that an armed stalker, targeting teenaged contestant Shawn Johnson, was captured in the Dancing with the Stars building. The alternative would have been worse, of course, but no kid should have to worry about things like this just because they are successful at a young age.
