Went to see Frank Gehry

So I saw the following posting:

SCAD Style, the Savannah College of Art and Design's signature style and design event, will present a lecture by renowned architect Frank Gehry April 28, 7:30 p.m., at the Trustees Theater, 216 E. Broughton St. The event is free and open to the public. SCAD Style is being held April 10-May 17.

So I thought to myself, "Hey, self, that sounds interesting. He was on the Simpsons, after all. He can't be that bad."

I moseyed on down to the Trustees Theater.... and found a line about half a block long.

This was OK until I found out that was the 'standby' line, for people without tickets.

Wait, tickets? SCAD didn't say anything about tickets.

Would have been nice to know, silly SCADdies!

As it turns out, there was a lot of room for 'standbys'. Enough in fact, to let in at least a hundred people. Only problem - I was the 105th in line. Bastids.

Hey Chris,

You missed a lot of crappy questions and a SCAD official lauding the "New York" campus (instead of Atlanta)...

Good to know.

After standing in line for 40 minutes surrounded by art students, interior design students and self described "political activists" I imagined the Q&A was going to be sycophantic and/or tiresome.

I wanted to remove my shoe and bludgeon them with it, but I just tried to ignore them instead.
