CAC Historical Horror Series

Nov
12

Monday's installment of the Historical Horror film series was very intimate. Held in the basement performance area, the screen dwarfs the seating arrangement giving most a premium view in spite of the flat floor. Not many people attended, 20-25 at most.

The films were interesting, especially the first Haxan. It makes me wish I hadn't missed the first night of the series but ensures that I will make greater effort to see the next.

Not Fringe Related...

Jun
01

Henri Loyrette is a charming Frenchman, who also happens to be the director of the Musée de Louvre. In a lecture at the Art Museum this afternoon he garnered quite a crowd despite the lovely weather. Trivia: at any given time there are 35,000 items on display at the Louvre and that's over half of the entire collection.

Prohibition Resistance Tour

Apr
14

The Prohibition Resistance Tour associated with Bockfest was postponed due to weather. Min Usha and I finally went on Saturday. It was entirely run by volunteers and pretty well organized overall.

The John Hauck House Museum was pretty interesting. There was victorian mourning hair art on the walls which is always fascinating and a little creepy.

I was a little disappointed because we only went into 2 buildings and the tunnels in the Guildhaus were basically the same as the Mockbee. I also thought there would be more stories about bootlegging and how Cincinnatians tried to resist Prohibtion.

Overall, it was pretty interesting and worth the price of admission. The tour went a little long on time, 3.5 hours instead of the 2.5 originally scheduled.

Who the F*#K is the FAF?

Apr
27

The Fine Arts Fund announced their campaign total tonight at the Cincinnati Art Museum, $11.7+ million. Congratulations to the committee and staff for exceeding their goal! The FAF was started in 1927 by the Taft Family and is the oldest united arts fund in the country. Downstairs at the Art Museum, Cincy World Cinema presented Who the F@*k is Jackson Pollock. The documentary was great but I wish more people had been in the audience, especially since there was a post-movie discussion with Mark Harris and Ted Lind about the authentication process and provenance.

True Life: I am NOT a Glam Rocker...

Apr
22

6:00PM - Met friends at Mahatma. The new location looks great but could maybe use better signage as I had to look relatively hard to find it. If I weren't looking, it would have been easy to blow right past. The store is about 3 times as large as the old location, but appears to hold about the same amount of inventory, just merchandised a little differently. The selection also appears to be slightly more upscale than before.

6:30PM - dinner at Jean Ro's Bistro. Entree: Swordfish w/vegetable frittata and spinach wrapped in fried potato strings. Mmmmm, fried potato strings. When I called for reservations on Thursday, they said 6:30 was the latest available. However, the restaurant was significantly less than 1/2 full at 7:30 this evening. The bar area held several people but it was by no means packed when we left around 8:30

8:30PM - Palomino's Hop Around was in the bar area only. Tried the chickpea fries. Interesting texture and large portion for $4.95. Not too many people in bar area.

9:45PM - Mr. Pitiful's was also less than busy. Good music, just not enough people listening to it.

10:15PM - CAC for Silk & Spice after party. Lots of people waiting for their cars at the valet stand when we arrived. Maybe 150 people inside, a few dancing, a few by the bar, most appeared to be people who attended the gala and very few were sporting glam rock attire. (Kudos to the guy in the sequin cape.) Some people may have glam rock confused with 80's. The party was isolated to the 1st floor... smart move to give the appearance of a packed house. Had a good time, ran into the usual suspects and was more than ready to go by 12:30AM.

Overall - Hop Around turnout didn't seem to be as large as in the past. Glam Rock is fun but also requires a lot of hair product.
