We'd heard it was coming, then forgot. Then remembered. Then got bored and chose to forget again.

Then ate some Donettes we keep in our emergency snack hutch and wondered why ALF didn't hold up with syndication and time.

BUT THEN, JUST NOW, the official email arrived assuring us that Bryan Adams -- the guy who sang "In The Summer of 69" -- will have a solo photography show at Goss-Michael Foundation, opening to the public on Tuesday, December 18.

The show will feature 46 select images from his new (wait..."retrospective"? C'mon, press release, really?) book, Exposed, and will be composed of "intimate images of friends and colleagues in the entertainment, fashion and art industries."

I dunno. Most of those people look great in every photo they've ever knowingly primped for, so I have a tough time getting overly excited. Pose 'em in a heavy lip and a smokey eye, then just set that camera on auto.

The included press image sheet looks like a bizarro-world celebrity Instagram feed, with Sir Mick Jagger, Lindsay Lohan, Victoria Beckham and Amy Winehouse taking center stage. If you're into that kind of thing, it'll be up until February 8, 2013.

If you aren't, go see Linder Sterling's show before it's gone. Like, for real.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
