Took my pair of Fluevog Radio CBCs
into the store as half the stacked heel came off one of them and they were still under warranty. The heels will be replaced on both of them, free of charge. I also picked up a set of heel caps for my Fellowship Sandras
, which my local cobbler can replace, hopefully not for much money. I'd love to pick up a pair of Gateways Southport oxfords
as interview shoes, but I would wear them everywhere.
Met up with greenygal
, had sandwiches, and then went to a live-music showing of Metropolis at Constellation Theater, her treat. The music itself was interesting -- live improv -- but the artist had cut Metropolis
down to 55 minutes which, if you know anything about the movie, makes it damn near incoherent. The entire subplot about Hel as the object of contention between Rotwang and Joh Federson was excised, as was a lot of conflicts between workers, owners, and management -- the foreman Grot was barely there, even though he's important in the complete film.
Then picked up some groceries at the Trader Joe's, including a double-sized bundle of green onions, two packs of tofu, and some bagels, and came home in the rain.
