Luminous Sightings

Aug. 21 edition of The New Yorker, “Measure for Measure,” by Justin Davidson, pg. 67: “Many of the concerts Masur led were sluggish, but he conjured some luminous Mendelssohn and fierce Shostakovich.”

Again with The New Yorker, "What Next?" by Alex Ross, pg. 89: "The very fabric of the score--its luminous orchestration, its pearly vocal lines, its gently pulsing rhythms, its celestially circling song of young love--evokes the mundane beauty that we overlook.

Aug. 25 edition of Entertainment Weekly, review of “House” Season 2 DVD by Ken Tucker, pg. 69: “The only false note this season was the use of the luminous Sela Ward as an old House flame.”

Product placement—Olay’s new Definity anti-aging products. Jackpot!
“Begin a luminous skin transformation today. Instantly reveal more luminous skin while visibly diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fight the look of discoloration, dullness and wrinkles for highly defined luminosity. New Olay Definity transforms the look of brown spots, dullness and uneven skin tone. The result? A look that’s high defined. Luminous. More flawless.”

Really, “more flawless?” Isn’t something that’s flawless already, by definition, completely lacking in imperfections? But did I send away for a free sample? You betchya.
