Media Watch: Trash A Go Go I and II -- No schlubs went home on the first show, just a rather introverted Olympic swimmer who deserved to stay. Kym Johnson did a BEAUTIFUL Argentine Tango which dragged slightly-better-than-schlub Donny Osmond to undeserved heights. Chelsea Hightower did the same for her skateboarding schlub. The talented cover girl stumbled at a critical moment. I really LIKE Nora Jones, but didn't get a charge out of the kinda-clumsy dual guitars in Come Away With Me. I thought the Michael Jackson tribute would have been better if it was more like ten minutes long -- they have some fabulous dancers, need I say. Commercial TV has some stupid limits.
I put up with some of the second show just to see who their top twenty dancers turned out to be. The way the summer season ended didn't please me at all, but I liked it until the final. Hmmm -- three dancers from the Salt Lake auditions made their final group. It WAS good to see the old Capitol Theater on TV -- heard Sinead O'Connor sing there a year or so back.

Digital watercolor by Michael R. Evans 2009 (click to enlarge)
Dappled forest light is the real subject of this print – playing over our un-named model and surrounding foliage. She has hiked the Rocky Mountains in Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana – tirelessly investigating infinite vistas over uncounted ridges. Here she pauses to reconnoiter and investigate directions she’ll lead the small group who awaits her word.
