Saturday, March 15th: Today’s Met Opera simulcast of Massenet’s Werther was beyond words! I read Goethe’s novel a few years back and found it very interesting. But the opera really brings the tragedy to a whole new level. And Jonas Kaufmann’s performance was absolutely captivating. :)
Tuesday, March 18th: Worked on new pages of graphic novel The First Reich.
Wednesday, March 19th: Wonderful Skype call with Jacqueline, DP of Death Is No Bad Friend. We bounced some really interesting ideas back and forth. And I look forward to further developing these ideas with her and director Mary.
Thursday, March 20th: I’ve been watching opera on YouTube and I just have to say that Verdi’s Don Carlos is one of the strangest operas I’ve encountered. Don Carlos falls in love with the woman who then becomes his stepmother, the Spanish Inquisition is running around causing trouble, and at the end Don Carlos is dragged down to hell by his dead grandpa to end his suffering… What!?
Friday, March 21st: My favorite Muppets Most Wanted moments (spoiler alert):

- Ricky Gervais in a lemur costume.

Sunday, March 23rd: I had an amazing time watching The Grand Budapest Hotel! Wes Anderson is brilliant and Ralph Fiennes is one of my all-time favorite actors. And the whole ensemble was amazing — Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Jeff Goldblum, etc. I can’t wait to see it again! :D
