Kerry Fundraiser at the Disney Concert Hall

Is anybody besides me scratching their head over this? I bet Gehry wakes up in the morning and just laughs at the money they paid him to design this place.

You think that monotone building is a blight?!
Then you've obviously never visited Seattle, where Ghery also laid a gigantic metal turd--except this time it was Kodachrome. Seattlites hang their heads in shame at the mention of the Experience Music Project (EMP), a "rock'n'roll' museum" conceived by Paul Allen, former collegue of Mr. William Gates, that computer guy. Yeah, it was a good idea. In theory. It holds the largest collection of Jimi Hendrix memorabilia ever (who is also a Seattle guy). Um, but looking at the building makes one feel sick, and this is a case where you damn better judge the book by it's cover. You will notice that on the website, there are few pictures of the ugly thing.... www.emplive.com Why am I so bitter? I worked there for two horrid years. Blech!

Leslie K. Siegel at ksiegel61@yahoo.com thinks that the Music Center pictured here is at least easier on the eye than that horrible Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Kodak Center that is losing money by the second and is a pagan shrine to Walt Disney. He's be turning over in his grave on that one! Leslie K. Siegel at ksiegel61@yahoo.com wish that her family in Florida would forgive her and make up. Please mother Lenore Siegel of Florida, and sister and brothers ... Please be my friend! Can't we just love again? I hope that theater center in Hollywood decides to fold and move on.

Two comments... one, you are an incredibly good looking guy!! LOL

The other is that someone somewhere apparently fell in love with it. Art is in the eye of the beholder.. perhaps someone had a pencil stuck in their cornea as it was designed.

Have fun out there in California!

Terah, thank you for the flattery. . .uh, wait a minute, does LOL mean you were laughing with me or at me?

If you go there just before the close the upstairs garden at midnight and play in all the hidden passages, it is a lot of fun. Sometimes I love being downtown at night just for the fun of it and the sense of quiet so rarely seen in the city!

Leslie Siegel, ksiegel61@yahoo.com has read a recent article in the Los Angeles Times about how the Disney Music Hall downtown has to tone down the silver. They have toned it down and the building is much better. It was distracting to planes, trains and automobiles! But the Kodak Theater in Hollywood California is still a blight on this earth and should never have been built.
