I get the wordy but wonderful mnartists.org weekly e-newsletter, and this week was especially interesting. The top story is about Fox 9 anchor Robyne Robinson’s local art collection, including many photos of pieces as they are displayed in her home. I love looking into people’s homes, so that’s probably the real reason why this story fascinates me. But I’m also interested because Fox 9 is such a piece of crap otherwise. Can’t this girl do better? She’s smart, she loves art & culture, she’s beautiful…and she works for the lamest local news? It just doesn’t seem right.
Speaking of Mpls coolness, I’m checking out Sound Unseen this weekend. I’m especially excited for the Harry Smith doco. As loyal readers may remember, I became obsessed with old timey American folk/roots music, mostly due to Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music, last year. I think part of this film is on a DVD in my Netflix queue. Anyway, I can’t believe I’ve never been to this festival before. Films about music — HELLO!?
