Angst here today. folks. To post or not to post.
If Jeremiah was a bullfrog, what did he croak about? If that frog had a blog would he winge? A 'jeremiad' is a complaint, a lamentation, in current parlance, a bitch session.
So ... here goes ...
Vivid is a celebration of light which commenced in June 2009. June is the middle of our winter. It is a bit dull and boring. Hence, something to get the populace out on the streets. I have now experienced three aspects of Vivid 2010. It could just be me, but I did not like any of them particularly. Neither the Macquarie Street holograms, nor the lighting of the Opera House sails, nor 'Fire & Water' were a patch on the 2009 offerings. Technically, I suspect they were more complex and 'better' but they were difficult to watch and appreciate. There was too much visual movement, too much visual complexity and way too much writing. 'Fire & Water' was an embarrassment that may have worked on the drawing board but was a yawn on the harbour.
A waste of money. Please don't use my taxes for more of the same in 2011.
