This weekend I will get more rigorous about the blog, getting lectures together and a new train of thought about furniture but tonight I just have to say "wow". We just finished watching the opening ceremonies for the Olympics. I was ready for some good old cheesy showmanship and we got something much more. The filmmaker Zhang Yimou is the artistic director and what a beautiful eye he has, every detail was very, well classy. And I have to report I had my first pang of professional envy-I would be so proud if I had designed the "birdsnest"-I hope Ai Weiwei is-to build a cultural icon and have a cute nickname.
