Chihuly Garden Installations

Even if you are not a fan of glass as an art form, it's hard to see how you cannot be somewhat awed by the work of glass master Dale Chihuly. If you've looked at glass before its probably been on a smaller scale, and perhaps whimsical, so hard to take seriously. But many of Chihuly's works are massive in scale, larger than a person, and are exhibited in scenes around the world like the Phoenix Botanical Gardens, where we took these photos.

If you see his works at an outdoor exhibition, like one of these forthcoming exhibits, try going at night, when the works are lit up and especially beautiful. But any time of day they can be awe inspiring. His works can also be seen in books such as this one, which give you some idea of the art, but we recommend seeing them in person if possible.

Movie:

Pride & Prejudice

The only thing you really need to know is that the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice, based on the Jane Austen novel, is one of the finest films ever made, despite originally being made as a miniseries for TV. Isn’t it amazing the difference that casting can make? The 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice is quite good – just not nearly as good as the original A&E version, despite the fact that the more recent one has some good stars, including superstars Keira Knightley, Judi Dench, and Donald Sutherland. And Knightley is a fine Elizabeth Bennet – just not with quite the edge that Jennifer Ehle plays in the AE version. Matthew Macfadyen is not bad as Mr. Darcy – but he does not define the role in the same convincing way that Colin Firth – far less famous in 1995. With the exception of Dench, every character in the 2005 version is fine, and you would think you had seen a fine movie – until you see the 1995 version. One thing is common to both versions is that they stay fairly constant to Austen’s text. read more Explore
