The best of New York

Since I became a Kindle owner, I also started reading the New York Times every day.  I miss living near New York.  The Tribeca Film Festival is just starting with 132 films in 12 days from 38 countries.  I  would love to go. In fact, every time I read the NYT, I wish I were in New York to see one thing or another.

The Santa Cruz Film Festival is May 6-15 and has 133 films from 13 countries.  Somehow I don't think it will be comparable.  I suppose I should go.

Also in New York is "FELA" a musical about a Nigerian revolutionary.  Then there's a rock musical called "Bloody bloody Andrew Jackson" about the 7th president, who was a solider who believed in taking no prisoners.

I want to see these plays just because the premises are such wild ideas.
