I'm pleased to announce that the mighty Brass Tacks Orchestra will be appearing at the PNC Bank Arts Center (Exit 116 of the Garden State Parkway in Holmdel, NJ) in a free senior citizen show on Wednesday, September 8, 2004 at 1:30 p.m. Also appearing will be comedian Stewie Stone. The performance is sponsored by the Garden State Arts Center Foundation. For more information visit the Garden State Arts Center Foundation website.
This is the famous painting The Scream by Edvard Munch. For the second time in ten years, it is a hot painting, as it has been stolen from its Oslo gallery. The 1893 painting, tempera and pastel on board, said to be worth about $75 million, was taken by two armed bandits from the Munch Museum in Oslo.
There are actually three versions of this painting. The version in the National Museum was stolen in 1994 on the opening day of the Winter Olympics in Lillehamer. A third is in a private collection.
We try desperately to steer away from blogs that take excessive liberties with language as I am, after all, a teacher of very small children who should not be exposed to bad language. A bad word once in a while isn't going to kill an otherwise entertaining blog. However, should one of these blogs ever turn into a filth-fest, it will be removed... and it has happened in some cases. Just be warned, fellow bloggers. Language originating from this blog will be always on the safe side. Thanks... --DM
