There is so much that will be added to this post. I just wanted to get some of my pictures up. I love my friends in Istanbul. We always have a great time together and the night life is pretty cool, too. (More to come.)
Two thousand years ago, Ephesus was a lot like New York today. With a population of over 200,000, it was the thrid largest city in the world (after Rome and Alexandria). It was a beautiful city. The streets were paved with marble and the wealthy lived in mansions with heat and indoor plumming. It was a biblical city as well.
I am not too shy and so when I travel I talk to everybody. In Turkey, I made a lot of friends. Topcap and I are really good buddies.
My friend Ken Stott (the famous English actor) is starring in “God of Carnage” on Broadway. I loved the show; it was great, and I got to be in it. After wards, we went to the Caprice restaurant at the Pierre Hotel for a way spectacular dinner!
Friday Nite with Yoyo Ma & Emanual Ax at Carnegie Hall, and The Marshall Tucker Band at B.B. Kings (0)
On Friday, January 29th, The Marshall Tucker band was in Town the same night that Yoyo Ma and Emanual Ax were playing at Carnegie Hall. Yoyo Ma & Emanual Ax were great, and Marshall Tucker (Southern Rock’s best) just keeps getting better and better.
A Little Night Music on Broadway stars Angela Lansbury and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The play was excellent, and I loved seeing Angela Lansbury on stage. But my favorite was Catherine Zeta-Jones because she is a very good singer and a real knockout … grrrrrrrrrrr.
I saw Avatar in 3-D but here are some still photos that I took. Yes, it’s me, Carnegie. and I don’t write reviews, but … The movie, Avatar, is like the futuristic pay-it-forward of colonialism. This great movie in 3-D will revive movie theaters, which maybe should consider expanding concessions to include actual food. My vote? Best movie of the year so far, and I am not even a science friction fan.
Pulitzer Prize winning Aaron Jay Kernis is an American Composer of great renown. He had his 5oth birthday celebration at Poisson Rouge and it was a wonderful musical event. I was just glad to be there.
