Teresa and I ventured to Nigel Barker's photography exhibit in the West Village on Sunday -- "A Sealed Fate?". Even though we were initially intrigued to come because, well, Nigel Barker is a fashion photographer and America's Next Top Model eye candy, his heart wrenching and enlightening 45-minute talk around his baby seal exhibit alarmed us.
I don't know where to start -- but for three days (before the baby seals learn how to swim), the seals are clubbed or shot to death for only $12-$14 per pelt. I'm not an expert on this topic, so please visit Protect the Seals for more information.
It was a really great exhibit -- Nigel was very funny and charming, as well as earnest. There is a lot of controversy on this issue, so I recommend that you do your research and form your own opinion. There is a comment debate on this NYMag blog entry that I've found to be quite interesting. How do you feel about this?
P.S. Some of you have been asking me for SAT prep tips -- I've been racking my brain for my "techniques" but I do believe that everyone has different strengths and different ways of learning. I will definitely elaborate on some advice later, but the best score booster I've discovered is learning from your mistakes. That's actually harder than it sounds -- but I'll try to help my lovelies with some tips to get started.
