SOMETIMES A TITLE’S SO GOOD we don’t care a fig about what it’s actually for. To wit, today is the opening of Christian Tomaszewski’s On Chapels, Caves and Erotic Misery. This is the fifth—and final!—segment of a project in which Mr. Tomaszewski reconstructed parts of the David Lynch film Blue Velvet. Whatever­—they had us at “erotic misery.” Across the Hudson, our new basketball team (smell you, Knicks!), the New Jersey Nets, play the Toronto Raptors in game four of the first round of the N.B.A. playoffs. Go, Jersey!
