My Top Ten List for the Chron is out.
I can’t believe I forgot something! Mike’s World @ the Blanton. Watching that orientation film in that dark room, fading to black and listening to the droning instruction to move into the next room… then, SHAZAM! Being disoriented by the flashing lights and flickering television sets was like going to the carnival. Even my kids were running around like chickens with their heads cut off! Look at this! Come here! I stood there dumbfounded for a minute, before settling them down.
That should have been my no. 2 with everything else bumped down.
Oh, and an honorable mention to the MACC architecture. I didn’t find it particularly striking. But when a kid tells you, “Wow, the building looks like a piece of art” then you have to reconsider.
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
