April First Friday
First Friday was fun. A large, messy Philly with Cheez Whiz and several napkins later, I was fed. The wind picked up out of the north and it got a little chilly. Walking through a few of the galleries on the east end of the Crossroads District, I saw some interesting art, but nothing really stood out as excellent. I only saw a couple of things I might tolerate looking at every day if they were inexpensive. . . and they weren't. Again, for a couple of hours KC felt like a real city. "Y'know if you're ever in Kansas City and you wanna hear some good music. . ." We saw Spinal Tap at Screenland. It's still funny, but not as funny as the 10th time I saw it. And not as funny as it might have been 20 years ago when it was newish. Like Fear of a Black Hat was 10 years ago. Maybe a mockumentary of the trendy music of the day is due. An emo slam is overdue. Backwards hair and skinny distressed denim with a sport coat. . . fake band with make-up spoof. . . could be funny.
