TWO Sesame Street
..season 41 press kit
THREE Abdi/Work of Art ...the winning exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum will be opening tomorrow, August 14 and there through October 17. (see here)
I am so happy that my favorites; Peregrine, Miles, and Abdi were the final three. I loved the story, passion, and energy from Miles's work, but it was a bit too abstract at the end for me. Peregrine had my favorite - the throwing up drawings, the whimsical feel, the ponies - extensions of her winning piece from a previous week, the stunning baby fawn piece. Abdi really amazed me in his final piece of the show (the nature challenge). I liked his stuff early on, but more recently his work had been sub-par. It was nice to see him shine in the end, I love the concept and vision of his work and I look forward to seeing in person at least once (if not a few times) the whole package live/in person during his two months stint at the museum.
Oh, and I follow Peregrine's blog and twitter (website - birdies panties ), Abdi's blog and twitter, Miles's website along with Nicole's twitter and various other folks (Jaime Lynn website). - I hope there is a season 2! This is the best thing on Bravo since my other reality show love, Project Runway!!
…and suddenly, everything became very clear

astoria, new york. yes, indeed. i love the fruit stands. i love the food choices (favorites are united bros fruit company in astoria, chinatown in "da city" overall, and the grocery store at the end of the N/Q train). i think i had more to say here, but I seemed to have misplaced my brain.
