SUPER TERRIFIC HAPPY THURSDAY

Man. What a Thursday night. Here's a recap.

7PM - The TimesCenter: Wong Kar-wai
Acclaimed Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai was in town to promote his latest film My Blueberry Nights. A really insightful discussion about his films, career, and techniques. The best part was when he explained that the highly stylized look of his pictures isn't completely based on aesthetics, but is also born out of necessity and practicality (translation: he really knows how to work with a tight budget).




9PM - The Brooklyn Museum: © MURAKAMI Opening Night
Next stop was the Brooklyn Museum for the opening night of Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami's exhibit "© MURAKAMI". He's best known for his collaborations with Louis Vuitton and designing the cover for Kanye West's last album "Graduation".







In a nut shell, the exhibit rocks. Two floors of impressive works. Definitely worth checking out for those in the NY area. It opens Saturday.







Other highlights tonight included a special Louis Vuitton "anti-counterfeit" installation (yes, they're all real) and a special performance by Kanye West (incredible).













Thanks to Gabrielle and Jennifer of the Brooklyn Museum.

The only thing missing from tonight was a bag of oranges.
