I Heart Mary Weiss!!!

I really love Mary Weiss' recent record. It is called "Dangerous Games". A lot of people remember Mary as the lead singer of the 60's teenager band the Shangri Las. The Shangri Las gave us such unforgettable tunes as "Leader of the Pack" or "Remember(Walking in the Sand)". "Dangerous Games" is Mary Weiss' first recording since 1965!!! Wow! There is not one filler on this record."Don't Come back", "Stop And Think it over" are my current faves.

Having recently been in Hamburg for 2 days I did not miss my chance to go museum hopping at Kunsthalle and Deichtorhallen. At Deichtorhallen there were two interesting shows on view. I changed my initial plan of watching the Fischli and Weiss(who I really like, but already know) show. Instead I checked out a retrospective of German fashion photographer F.C. Gundlach. Especially the C-prints of fashion shoots from the 60’s were really beautiful.
