Busy year for work and personal travel. I didn’t get out of the country this year due to my botched trip to Mexico but 2014 is sure to make up for that!

R.I.P. Andrew. The internet and NIN brought you into my life and I will forever treasure your friendship.

National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden - Marc Chagall - Orphee mosaic,  Louise Bourgeois - Spider, Roy Lichtenstein - House I, Robert Indiana - Amor, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Brugen - Typewriter Eraser, Roxy Paine - Graft and Joan Miro - Gothic Personnage Bird Flash

It was pretty cold in DC today but I spent a lot of time in the sculpture garden enjoying this art. I especially loved the Lichtenstein - depending on the angle of your view, it can appear flat or in 3D. Also, the Indiana “Amor” was great. His iconic “Love” sculptures have been faves so a Spanish version is awesome.

Highlights from the Smithsonian American Museum of Art: John La Farge - Peacocks and Peonies, Deborah Butterfield horse, Georgia O’Keefe - Manhattan, Nam June Paik - Electronic Superhighway (West Coast to Mountain Time Zone states), Mike Wilkins - Preamble, Georgia O’Keefe - Hibiscus and Peony, Nam June Paik - Electronic Superhighway (Great Lakes, Midwest, Midsouth and Louisiana), Alexander Calder, Harry Bertola - part of a Sculpture Group Symbolizing World’s Communication in the Atomic Age

I spend most of my time in the contemporary and modern galleries if you couldn’t tell. I saw a lot more as this building shares its space with the National Portrait Gallery. I never really liked portraiture but the space and the exhibitions changed my opinion. A great way to start my weekend of museum hopping in DC.

IN THIS TWILIGHT - from the “final” Wiltern show, Sept. 10, 2009.

This concert was covered by Andrew in OC Weekly.

Rest in peace, man.

This song will forever be for Andrew.

I always request this song at Jazz Brunch at Commander’s Palace. Just classic.

Nine Inch Nails at The Joint Las Vegas 11/16/13

I walked into the Joint on Saturday night expecting to be surprised - I had faith that we wouldn’t get a standard playlist two night in a row and I was right….

Nine Inch Nails
The Joint
Las Vegas, NVl
11/16/13

All Time Low
Sanctified
Disappointed
Came Back Haunted
Copy of A
Reptile
The Frail
The Wretched
Echoplex
Satellite
Running
I Would for You
The Big Come Down
Survivalism
In Two
A Warm Place
Somewhat Damaged
Wish
The Hand That Feeds
Head Like a Hole

Encore:
Even Deeper
In This Twilight
While I’m Still Here
Black Noise
Hurt

So we started with the funkier side of the set and ended rocking out. The major omissions from the regular set list was MOTP/Piggy but we got “Reptile” and I was really happy to get “Echoplex”. The band seemed really edgy that night and I mean that in a good way. Robin and Josh were especially inspired - really these photos don’t do them justice but I think you can just imagine.

(Robin FUCKING Finck is a BEAST!)

(Josh Eustus on SAX!!!)

The night turned especially emotional for me after Trent introduced the band. He told us that he was off his game tonight because of a friend who could not be at the show. I knew he was talking about Andrew (@amateurchemist) and what happened next was just really super cool. TR asked us to indulge him and the next thing you know, he was facetiming Andrew. The crowd started chanting “Andrew” - and I just kinda lost it. I know Andrew from the blogiverse - as a fellow NINnie, traveler and photographer, I just always felt a connection to him and while I am happy that he has been having these amazing experiences, I just wish they weren’t under these circumstances.

And then they played “In This Twilight”. This song will forever be for Andrew. (You can read the background as to why here.)

I don’t really know how to end this post, so yeah, #fuckcancer.
