New US TV show casting
I still might not ‘get’ Arrested Development, but I understand a lot of people like it. Enough people, in fact, that there’s going to be a one-day art show in Los Angeles dedicated to the programme. It looks pretty good, actually.
“There’s Always Money In The Banana Stand” will run for one day only on June 29th and will run from 7-10pm.
It says somewhere here that this is a blog about the media in general, rather than just TV or film. So for a little change of pace and to fulfil the blog’s mandate, it’s time for a simple question:
What’s your favourite work of art?
It can be a painting, a sculpture, an installation, a piece of architecture or anything else arty.
Answers below or on your own blog, please!
