I decided that there was no way I was going to make the train that would get me to the 8am Case discussions, so I'm going to write in LJ instead.
Are there any Get Smart fans on my flist? Isn't it sad that Don Adams died over the weekend? Smart was a big part of my childhood.
Just wondering whether anybody has ever watched Raymonda on video or DVD? I received my subscription information from the Australian Ballet for next year and the version they're doing has been moved from the time of the crusades to Hollywood in the 50s. Whilst I think I might go to it, I've been wanting to see the traditional version for ages - ever since I saw the photo of it in this illustrated children's encyclopedia we had. None of the libraries I belong to have it, (except perhaps Victorian College of the Arts
, which is a branch of my uni) and nor does the ABC shop sell it. Amazon appears to have two versions - the Bolshoi and a Nureyev version (therefore Paris Opera Ballet?). If I'm going to have to order it from there I would like to buy the one I'm most likely to enjoy.
