Happy Friday

As if I needed another excuse to visit NYC, my friend Mary emailed me today with a link to the new MoMa exhibit dedicated to one of my creative cultural icons, Tim Burton.

While I have always loved Batman Returns, Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, it was the Nightmare Before Christmas that really solidified Tim Burton's icon status to me. His films not only are visually incredible to look at, the feel and mood he creates are so magical and creepy, yet heartfelt, you can't help but appreciate his artistry (even if it is too creepy for your taste!).

Along with the gallery exhibition there is also a film exhibition; both will run from November 18, 2009 to April 26, 2010.

hi fellow fishie here visiting from the fishbowl...

I saw that your from bostons north end and have a little question for you, if you dont mind! We're heading over to Boston to see some specialist at the boston medical center on the 23rd of October and I'm wondering what kind of weather to expect. Coming from hawaii we're in the middle of a heat wave and sweating our behinds off everyday.

The last time we came over it was February at the beginning of this year and OMG I froze like a statue and had a hard time leaving our hotel room.

We know it wont be as cold this time but because our little kids are coming with us 1.5 years and 3 years old I'm hoping you can give me some kinds on how warm their clothing needs to be.

I've been told its going to be nippy so I got lots of little cardigans and long pants etc for them.

I cannot wait to hit up the italian restaurants in the north end again!

How cute is that Tim Burton pic?! One of my favourite movies ever is his "Sleepy Hollow" - still yet to see Nightmare Before Christmas. I'd love to see the exhibition, he's fantastic. Thanks for passing that on.
