the elephant in the room

I'm poor.


I had been planning to go to see a staged retelling of Agnes Varda's Cléo from 5 to 7 this Wednesday. It sounds absolutely amazing! I mean...

Comme Toujours Here I Stand—which premiered in April in Lyon and opens tonight at New York’s Kitchen theater—takes Varda’s own experiment, a real-time story of a young model-singer who wanders Paris while waiting for the results of a biopsy, and turns it into a multimedia confrontation with the cinema, combining drama, dance, video, and rapidly moving walls and sets to reproduce the unique properties of film.

...come on!

However, I cannot spring for Comme Toujours Here I Stand or anything else that costs money. Luckily NYU students get lots of free stuff... but not this.

If you would like to take me out to see it I would not turn you down... just saying.

Seriously though... being poor is not awesome. And poor I am.
