on the road again

Thanks to everyone who sent me kind words after my appearances on Monday on MSNBC. If anyone finds a link to the spots online, please pass it on. I seem to be the only one who has not seen them. (People in Televisionland call them 'hits', but I prefer to think of them 'spots of time'.)

Meanwhile, I am now in London, and the blog will turn partly into a travelogue (travelblog?) for the next four weeks. I am planning to visit Exeter, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stockholm, Malm o, and Copenhagen. Tomorrow Dan and I plan to see new work by Jake and Dinos Chapman, Tom Friedman, and Bob Dylan. Apparently, Bob Dylan produces visual art as well. The conversation afterward will surely be entertaining as we will no doubt compare Dan's rock hero's visual output to my art-rock hero's work. Then again, perhaps the deck is already stacked. After that, The Merry Wives of Windsor at Shakespeare's Globe.
