lyricagent is going to be in San Francisco late September- 24th through the 30th- and would like to take in the King Tut exhibit. I know several of you who live 'round here also want to see this, and some at least had expressed a desire to do so with lyricagent. Given that advance booking is preferable from what I've seen on the De Young's website, I figured we should try to pin down when the hell to do it. So, Gentle Readers, do you have any preferences on what dates we go, to make your joining us easier?

Why LOOKIE THERE, it's a handy-dandy poll!

Poll #1451068 When are we going to the De Young to see King Tut stuff?

When's good for you?

  • OMG, exactly - too tired to remember the word for "provenance", so didn't say so in last coment, but did feel as if half of tghe xhibits might have come from ancient Australia for all we were told anything sensible about it. Made me want to slap a giant "Needs citation" on the entire exhibit.

    I went home and read "Motel of the Mysteries" afterward; that book was far better sourced, and it's a parody! (By David Macaulay, of the Pyramid architectural books etc.) if you haven't seen it, I most highly recommend; it's fun even for kids, but folks with Egyptology knowledge may hurt themselves laughing at it. (Best Howard Carter sendup I've ever seen.)
    • Exactly! It was a lot like a museum exhibition promoted by a concert company. I was kind of waiting for Bret Michael's Pyramid of Love to appear or something, LMAO!

      That book is a classic and well-loved in archaeology! And so true to boot!
