That was weird. And awesome.
WHYYYY IS THIS LESSON SUCH A HARD ONE TO LEARN.
THIS MOMENT WAS SO GREAT! I told so many people about this scene! I am obsessed with collaborative artist couples, from John and Yoko to Christo and Jeane-Claude, Marina and Ulay's story ranks among the top of my infatuation. Second favorite scene is when the little boy sits across from her and his mother's subsequent reaction to his experience. Everyone should see this film, especially skeptics of performance art.
@Decca Yeah, I don't understand the skepticism at all. They show him reuniting with her after many years before the exhibit starts, he came to New York to offer her support! It doesn't make the moment any less touching.
I asked my wedding DJ friend and he said Van Morrison's Crazy Love is one of his favorites. Also! You've Made Me So Very Happy by Alton Ellis was a song I always told my ex we should use, before he became my ex. :\

Ahhh this was great, I AM SO INTO THIS SERIES. I would love to do a trip like this sometime, but mostly this just made me pumped for nicer weather so I can ride my bike everywhere again.
WORD. Straightening actually saves me a lot of time, otherwise I'd have to wash my hair every morning, wait for it to dry, and pray it behaves (l o l). I definitely think she's doing it too much, though. I straighten twice a week, wash every third day and try to have a natural day to give it a break. My hair is longer than hers and it only takes me a half hour, max.

...which is to say that I am so incredibly jealous of you! Someone sent me a link with that lineup and I just stared sadly at their names for a good five minutes (I'm on left coast).
@rimy Are you familiar with place-based education? My daughter attends a public charter school that uses this model, we both love it. The kinds of projects these kids take on are so much more interesting than what I remember from my public school experience and they get out of the classroom a lot (field trips / camp outs / weekly field studies!) and are also required to fulfill a number of community service hours each quarter. Because they're a public school, the program relies heavily on parental support to succeed. For example, it's strongly requested that each parent chaperone a couple field trips a year and there is a "suggested" donation for tuition, but it's absolutely worth it.
