Some travels and Halloween, Getty Villa, Rome’s school.
We had a nice morning outing at the Getty today. The Irving Penn show was awesome in that it makes you catch your breath as you absorb the scope of the work. You’ll want to go check it out while it’s here because they said in the write-up that this is the first time the entire series is presented in one place.
We came particularly to see the Luis Meléndez: Master of the Spanish Still Life show, which was pretty interesting but for me not a jaw dropper except for the one figure on display which was a self portrait. That thing was amazing. You could really see what a trouble-maker he was and why he kept getting kicked out of the Academies of the day.

Christa and her friend Catherine are in LA for a few hours before they fly back to Hawaii. Lona and Hartley went with them to a Speech event at the camp where L&H first courted. Lona was all gooey with semtementality over the whole thing. It was cute.
NOTE: tomorrow I’m off for a three night Camping (!!) Trip and might or might not be able to post pictures. ‘They’ say they have wifi at this place (a California State Park by the beach), no electricity though. I’m looking forward to the adventure. And to not being too cold or too hot. You know, I’m old.
Look at the review Darryl got for his recording label, from MetalJazz.com. Excellent! Congratulations D!!
“…This record arrives via an interesting download-only internet label, Redline Park. Darryl Kanouse and friends have carefully curated a wide range of releases that have little in common other than high quality and an outside point of view. The catalog offers extreme jazz, electronic, experimental and punk, mostly new but also some worthy reissues. Though I hadn’t been familiar with many of the artists, a sampling of the albums (complete versions of which are posted for free streaming) revealed serious musicianship and distinctive points of view.
