Great movie and Bad Art

Last weekend I took a break from all the cotton spinning and Ben and I joined some friends to see "Where the Wild Things Are". It was a great movie and a fun night! The Somerville Theater was decked out in cobwebs and other Halloweeny things.


It was a wet, but warm night...my favorite. Perfect for being out and about.


The characters in the movie were wonderful and really looked like real life versions of the book! My favorite part? The giant dog they saw walking in the desert.


After the movie we ventured down to the Bad Art Museum they had in their basement. It was rather entertaining and some of the "bad art" was actually quite good...like this crazy clown! Very well rendered but certainly a little scary.
The frame on this one was really interesting.


Some tedious pointellism. Silly to think that someone did this much work to paint a man in his tighty whities.
A sweet portrait.
This one was certainly poorly rendered and I'm not quite sure what's going on here...any ideas?

This was a fabulous night out in New England...however, I am currently in the great state of Texas and will be travelling with my dad and sister out through the Southwest, looping around back to through Southern Utah, making a stop in Denver to visit a friend before continuing on to Nebraska for Silver Bella. After that we're making a B-line for New York State. I'll leave my dad and sister at home and take a bus back to Boston. Phew! I'll be back in town and back to my normal routine around November 18th. I've drafted several blog posts before I left that I will be posting every few days...so check back in! As for now...I'm hoping to spot a horny toad and catch a tumbleweed (which I actually already did just today!) :)

the original Museum of Bad art is in the basement of the Dedham Community Theatre near the men's room. I love going down there and checking out all the goodies
