Balet Bratislava: Romeo and Juliet photos

November 28th, 2011 § 0

I went to the second premiere of Romeo and Juliet on the 12 November also. If anything I like the ballet much better the second time.

Perhaps I was just inured to the slightly disappointing loudspeakers of Nova Scena and the strange jumps in the lights didn’t bother me so much.

It probably also has to do with a greater chemistry between Romeo (Arthur Abrams) and Juliet (Natalya Némethová). It’s not to say that Némethová outdanced the always stunning Katarina Kosikova. But she did dance Juliet with as much passion.

See for yourself:

Date Rape and Vegetarianism: Writings of Lisa Brennan-Jobs

November 2nd, 2011 § 3

Steve Jobs was given a strange family life. Given up for adoption himself, his biological parents had another go at it and a sister was born Jobs had a sister he met only as an adult, Mona Simpson.

In his own life, Jobs had a daughter born out of wedlock with artist Chrisann Brennan. For some reason Jobs rejected Lisa Brennan for a few years before finally naming a computer after her.
