Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope

Today I watched people get naked and have graphic sex. Yup, I went to the opera. We have season tickets to the L.A. Opera and this season they are trying to 'modernize' them. I don't really agree with this new format, but whatever.

For this season's Tannhauser they warned that there is 'some nudity'...uh, that's putting it mildly. The first half hour there were about 30 people completely naked having simulated sex. Raunchy orgy porn sex. Good lord. I am not a prude, but I was like, hello - where's the singing?

I get why they did it, but still. As with most Wagner, the story just dragged on. We actually left after the second act it got to be too boring. Which is sad. We never leave the opera early, but it was a good thing we did, cause I got to take a picture of this:
I have been hoping to see one of these 'revamped' Star Wars USPS mailboxes. I think R2 looks right at home next to the very futuristic Disney Concert Hall.

That reminds me of that old Jack Handy quote, "Someday I'd like to see a nude opera. I bet you can really see it in their genitals when they hit the high notes."

Hahaha! Jack Handy! There's a blast from the past. And, cool about the r2d2 mailbox. We, in Canada, have to be satisfied with the boring old red ones we've always had.

I spotted my first R2D2 mailbox too...in Burbank, in front of NBC. I didn't have a chance to photograph it yet. Dammit.
