Saw Eigengrau at the Bush Theatre. Excellent black comedy, with four twentysomethings in London encountering each other. Has some good dialogue, a couple of great sight gags, and some very cleverly-structured plotting.
However, the tragic side of the tragicomedy might be a bit much for some, gets pretty bleak and could be seen as a bit cynical.
Still, a very good play, well worth seeing if you're not too shockable.
Does very well in subverting expectations, setting up what looks like a predictable rom-com and then turning it in very different directions.
Grrr. Wanted to see the Kingdom of Ife at the British Museum, but they decided to close it for Good Friday, though the museum was packed.
Did see the Revolution on paper: Mexican prints 1910-1960 which was good. Mostly political posters, done in a stark black-and-white populist style. Liked José Clemente Orozco in particular, especially the stark drawing "Grief".
of the Plains, which had some
IndianNative American artifacts.
Liked the combination pipe / tomahawks that
symbolize both peace and war.
Have booked the Kia Cee'd again, going to try driving up to see the parents on Saturday, back Monday. Hopefully will survive.
I need to adjust my fears to correspond to normal people's. How do I get to be relaxed about zooming around amongst tons of steel just a few feet from certain death in a road system that kills thousands every year; while at the same time fretting nervously about being blown up by terrorists?

Flawed but interesting: Greenpeace claims Koch Industries fund climate denial, but MeFi points out they're mostly general purpose right-wing think-tanks, not climate deniers in particular.
