Last night Rick and I -- along with two sets of good friends -- went to see "Frost/Nixon" at MSU's Wharton Center.
Stacy Keach ("Mike Hammer") played Nixon and the play was by the fellow who write the screenplay to "The Queen." Excellent portrayal of what went into David Frost getting the famous Nixon interview following his resignation -- and how he got him to reveal what he did on camera.
I knew the interviews; I didn't know the back-story. It was fascinating! And actually rather timely. You couldn't sit and watch this and not think about future interviews that might sometime happen... would it be Charlie Rose? A journalist or a talk show host? The possibilities are endless!
The week was nicer because of a surprise arrival earlier this week -- this delightful Halloween card from Beth!
And while I'm posting art, here is an ATC I did for a swap with Beth and Shelley (who, alas, has removed her blog for awhile).
The theme was Romantic Women (Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte periods) and I don't have pix of the others I sent because I must have deleted them from my camera before I downloaded them. Too bad, because I loved the ones I did -- and soon I'll post the ones I received from Beth and Shelley, too!
Coming soon -- a tutorial in pumpkin roll baking! Stay tuned!
