The Graduate a la Morgan Fairchield

Ushered at the Graduate tonight with Serge. It was a fun show. The best thing about it was probably just how it reminded me of the movie. It was cool to see an interpretation/homage to the film--one of the best films of all time. I did not like what they did with Elaine; it truly ruined the story. And Mrs. Robinson is just going to do a 360 at the end and wish them the best of luck. Yeah, right.

Herbie Hancock at the Warner theatre

Serge and I were lucky enough to catch a fabulous live jazz show at the Warner theatre last night. The legendary Herbie Hancock played piano along with Grammy winner Michael Brecker (tenor saxophone), Roy Hargrove on trumpet, Scott Colley on bass, and world-renowned drummer Terri Lyne Carrington. It was a real treat. They played a set that lasted close to two and a half hours. There was so much to take in I wish I could have a recording so that I could listen to it all again. This was my first time seeing live jazz in such a formal setting. Seeing these icons of jazz today, will certainly influence how I hear jazz in the future.

There I am in the lower right just about 2 seconds before I shook Howard Dean's hand!

Celebrate the future!

Dean introduces Senator Jeffords

Dean makes a point. That's me in the front.

Dean jokes about getting a 3-piece suit for work in DC. "Fat Chance!" he says.

A packed house--the Dean crowd! Check out that tray of beers

The Chairman is IN! (We're talking Democratic National Committee Chairman.) That's what I'm talking about!

Howard Dean Victory Party

Tonight Serge and I went to the Capitol City Brewing Company across from the US Capitol to see Howard Dean. He gave a rousing speach to a packed house concerning the future of the Democratic Party. Senator Jeffords of Vermont made a guest appearance and made a statement something to the effect of "I didn't know what I was doing when I made the switch but it's clear now that was the right choice." It was so awesome to see Howard Dean in person! Check out these photos courtesy of wolff.
