Did I forget anything? Absolutely. Any fun facts? It so happened that I totally fell in love with Francis Picabia couple of days before Devendra Banhart gig at Webster Hall. And while queuing there I was all extra-excited 'cos some 100 years before me Francis had hanged out at the very same venue. (:

Update: This year I visited two exhibitions dedicated on the life and work of film directors (Hitchcock in Madrid and Kubrick in Copenhagen) and while I am no movie buff then I must say they were some of the most interesting exhibitions I saw. I could become a movie buff. Maybe. I like how it sounds.
