best fundraising trip ever: cardiff for armed forces day. my pal jenny invited me out to help her fundraiser for help for heroes, a charity she climbed kilimanjaro for last year. it was a grand time. we made £400 on friday night before the big day's festivities. jenny was a 40's sailor gal and she was fab. look!saturday, i was a sailor and jenny was an army pin-up gal. the men in uniform loved her. it was all good fun.
tegan joked about her insecurities about her attire. she thought she was dressed a la justin bieber. she even did a hair flip. they went through the latest from their current album "alligator" and then the oldies but goodies. they played my favs "you wouldn't like me", "walking with the ghost" and "where does the good go".
encore included sweet acoustic versions of "dark come soon" and sara's contribution to dj tiesto's "back in your head". they were everything i was hoping for, from the rockin' power pop to the sisterly banter.
the special exhibit featured anish kapoor. i wasn't a fan of his new works of cement sculpture. looked like piles of poop to me. i did like the wax cannon though. also, the other exhibition featured french painter henri rousseau, who i hadn't heard much of and was happily introduced to. then, there are robert rauscheberg's gluts, which i was slightly familar with. his reuse of "trash" primarily from his home in texas really translates to the current waste filling the gulf of mexico.
