It is 5:12 on Thursday. I have 45 more minuets left. Then I should close the gallery. Today was one of the slowest days we have ever had; there came barley 15 visitors and that is one third the number of visitors in any other day. I think mostly it was because of the good weather. When New York is not gray and windy it is more fun to wonder the streets of New York than wonder on Moholy Nagy’s exhibition in a dark room (less than 8 foot candle light).

Since I was busy with my French exam I didn’t have enough time to update Tameshk this last weeks. But yesterday finally, I took the exam. I don’t know the official result yet, but strangely I am happy by myself. I am not afraid of it any more; mostly because the exam was much easier than what I imagined and I think I did well.

Now here are some updates:

I visited Whitney Biennial exhibition and I am afraid it wasn’t that good. I think the last one, in 2003, was much better but I liked the fact that there were more Video-Art pieces this time. I especially liked the work by Urs Fischer “The Intelligence of Flowers”.

I saw Wim Wenders’ film Don’t Come Knocking (2005) and I didn’t like anything about this one; the story is bad and the structure is worse. I have never been a fan of Wenders but there are some of his movies that I like and this one, with all respect, is not one of them. I think he wanted to make Kill Bill III but he couldn’t convince Uma Thurman to play in it; so he messed up everything the story, the shots and so on.

I also watched Corpse Bride directed by Tim Burton and Mike Johnson. I liked it but The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) directed by Henry Selick and written by Tim Burton and Michael McDowell was much better. So the conclusion is that Burton is better off co-writing the script rather than co-directing it!

This coming Sunday is “Seezde Bedar”: the 13th day of the spring and the Persian tradition is somehow similar to April first. People go outdoors, barbecue, have fun and supposedly get rid of the omen of the 13th day of the year.
