R.I.P. (art and my brain)

Luciano Pavoratti died yesterday. He wasn't the best tenor of all time, but he made opera famous and popular (at least a little) and that's a great thing. I'm not sure if anything has ever captured emotion as well as opera in the history of history.


Work has been killa (back to back 13+ hour days). So unlike many people who work to exhaustion, I can't just go to bed when I get back late. I need to unwind. So tonight it was Top Chef on the TiVo, PTI on the TiVo, Kimmel performance for Rilo Kiley and then some IMing while watching Oprah. Tonight's episode ... aging. Oprah did some stuff on the Dove campaign for real beauty thing and the call out they had for 50+ models, mini-profiles of three women defying age (including a 70-year-old woman who looked about 40) and then makeover type stuff with people being shown how to change their dress and look to get it together. Bravo fashion guru Tim Gunn (how cool is be, btw?) assisted with the clothes makeover. And he gave one woman some knee-high suede boots, and noted that EVERY woman should own a pair. And you know what, he's so fucking right! Knee-high suede boots are way sexy.

Knee-high suede boots are also a bitch to keep clean.
