2007: culture

We actually saw a glorious total of four films in the cinema this year, probably as many as we had managed in the previous four years combined. They were: The Last King of Scotland, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, 2 Days in Paris, and Stardust. Also I took F to see Alvin and the Chipmunks at the weekend, and Anne took him to see The Simpsons Movie during the year.

We have also been to two classical music concerts in the last few weeks, more than we have managed in the previous decade: Pieter Wispelwey playing the Bach cello suites at the Brussels Royal Conservatory at the end of November, and La Mystère des Voix Bulgares in Leuven last weekend.

Also we got through the whole of the first five seasons of The West Wing, plus Doctor Who and the Sarah Jane Smith Adventures, and The Goodies At Last!

Gradually picking up our ability to engage in these things what with the new circumstances..

It's got to the stage where I actively admire other people's investment in serious box set viewing! We picked up a cheap copy of The West Wing's first season, and are currently torn between admiring the snappy, funny writing and deploring the huge amounts of hokum which intervene...

I've seen four movies in the theater in the last five days! Though that's extreme; I'd estimate I normally go to about two movies a month. But, it's the end of the year, and the more interesting stuff tends to come out late in the year.

We tended to go to many fewer movies when Leslie was little, or we went to things she'd enjoy.
