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've put 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.
Media Watch: Trash A Go Go 'Chuck'ed Julianne Hough and her singer-boyfriend. He really wasn't very good, but I think Jewel's old man is worse. Unfortunate Melissa may be too injured to continue, but she and Tony Dovolani are going to give it another try. There's a tall guy in the pro competition who looks remarkable when he dances, otherwise he looks remarkably like a man from Mars. Speaking of which, Mr. Thicke, the guest singer on the results show, was total Kitsch. I kinda liked the busy Beethoven 5th Symphony goof-around, but the fake soul song was gawd-awful. (I wonder if he's related to 'bleh' Canadian comic actor Alan Thicke?) It was good to see Edyta dancing with a real dancer, though.
I like seeing/hearing President Barack Obama's press conferences -- nice to know a smart guy is trying to deal with the reality of the world, but I still wish he'd named his puppy 'Bark' Obama.
Where was I? Oh Yeah!
