Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Can Art Stop You On Your Tracks?

(Thanks to welldan for posting a link to the Washington Post article online.)

You have to read the article. Not only is it superbly written (it won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for feature writing), but it also tackles a most intriguing premise: What would happen if you place a world-renowned musician, one of the greatest living violinist in the world, in a busy Washington DC station and have him play some of the most elegant pieces in history? Will the music stop commuters in their tracks? Will beauty transcend over train schedules? How will art fare over rush hour?

You’ll miss one-third of your life if you don’t read the Washington Post article. Click here now. As in, now na!
