i am very thankful for long weekends. our thanksgiving weekend was relaxing and filled with activities like browsing books, sipping tea, and watching movies.
yesterday, we saw gone baby gone. a lot of folks loved this movie, but i thought it was terrible. i like casey afflek and liked his performance as a young detective in south boston. the plot, however, had too many holes in it and ultimately did not work. it's difficult to go into details without ruining the movie for those who have not seen it (although i think it was pretty much ruined from the get go) but there were certain issues left unadressed (e.g. social services and the foster care system) and others that seemed forced (a masked detective remy showing up at the bar near the end).
much much better is the current exhibit by lauri lynnxe murphy at the plastic chapel. her newest work isn't on her website, but consists of a mixture of mini-collages, paintings, and snow globes filled with seussian-style "plants."
i love the contraption in the above collage.
have a great week!
